Another Sims Update

Endicott family matron, Adriana, passed away yesterday. She achieved her life goal of nagging her 3 daughters into college degrees and was welcomed into the afterlife with a pina colada. Overcome with grief, her husband Christoper mouthed off at a press conference and was ejected from the bowlers hall of fame. He still practices daily in the little alley set up behind their home.

Sonnet and Adam Graham welcomed a new baby to the family. Little Emma was born during her grandparent's anniversary party and promptly became the center of attention. Her proud papa jumped straight up in the air and thought about a promotion at work. Apparently this will be a trend in Emma's life. On her transition day from baby to toddler, her mother took her to the cake....and then right off to work with her. (I was thinking she was going to grow up to be a diva-type, but she may end up a tough business woman at this rate.) Emma's big brother Ethan finally traded in his Baby New Year costume for a pair of bearfoot pjs. I'm not certain which is cuter.

Saffron and Brian Rossi (yes, they will still be the Rossi's even if he was forward thinking and took her name) continue to be happily married. Brian's sister, Shenene, came to stay with them for a while with her adopted son, Corbin. Corbin is just the same age as his cousin Carmen and the two have become best friends. Shenene married her boyfriend Timothy Pai in a small, private ceremony held in the backyard. Sadly, Timothy's job required them to relocate but Corbin decided to stay with his aunt,uncle and cousin. Carmen was delighted.

Meanwhile, downtown, Sorrel Endicott (still my favorite) renewed her relationship with the head vampire in town and gave birth to twin girls, Josette and Cassandra. Her roommate, Lucy Miller, doesn't seem to mind who Sorrel is with just so long as Sorrel continues to save her dumb ass from Death every other morning. (Lucy has a bad habit of wanting to climb out of her coffin for a morning constitutional and forgets to climb back in when she gets uncomfortable. We need some chlorine for the Miller gene pool.) Sorrel's son, Quinten, traded in his favorite fuzzy pink pjs for a fabulous little vest that has me singing "YMCA" every time I see him. So far Quinten is a knowledge sim who hates studying, loves one of his sisters, and wants to be a mad scientist if he every graduates from high school.

The 4th Endicott sister, Sage, remains dead.

Ok... how much of this is a part of the codeing of the game, and how much of it is story you added to explain the game?

It depends, really. Lucy really is that much of a dumbass. Some sims will not move when needs meters get too low and she is one of them. She will stand in front of her coffin, frantically waving as her needs decrease, and then turn into dust.

Christoper did get a chance card that selected between saying he thought something was screwed up or just playing nice. He was fired when I picked that he should speak up. It did happen the work day after Adriana died, I just connected the dots on that one.

Most of what happened with the Grahams I just reported. I made up reasons for what happened with the Rossis. Townies don't have families, but since Shenene and Brian had the same last name, I moved her in to think of how I could keep the Rossi name in the game (one of my favorite high school teachers was a Rossi, you see). I don't think there are any chance cards that cause you to move,so I just moved Shenene and Timothy out for my own reasons (which will come to light in the next update).

I love your Sims updates-- they're very entertaining. I'm thinking of starting over with a new Legacy family. Maybe when Pets comes out.

Thanks, I really have a lot of fun making them.

Pets is the next one? Oi. I haven't even picked up Open for Business yet,that one just doesn't interest me much.

Actually, I was very pleasantly surprised by Open for Business. I wasn't all that interested in it before it came out, but I ended up really liking it. But yeah, Pets is coming out October 17.

Cool. I really want more aspirations and career tracks.

Well, Pets won't have any new aspirations or career tracks, except that the pets themselves can have careers.
