Vid the Kid's Sims 2 Stuff

Floor Plans (coming soon)

Rather than supply .sims2pack files (which are needlessly large IMO) I prefer to share blueprint-like floor plans, so people who like my layouts can build them themselves, making their own decoration choices (such as flooring, wall treatments, and furniture) and adapting the design to the particular lot they want to build on (especially considering residential lots aren't always flat).

Sim Suburb Gossip

Here you can read about what's going on with the many families in my own Sims game. (I have kept all of my households more or less in-synch since starting the Sim Suburb neighborhood, but I didn't begin journalling day-to-day events until about the end of the second week. That's why the SSG begins on the third Monday.)

This table shows the progress of how much I have played each family in my neighborhood. Clicking on a portion of the table will jump to the Sim Suburb Gossip entry for that family and that time period, if available. Abbreviations within the table represent family changes. The first letter specifies to which sim the event relates, and the second letter or symbol specifies what the event was. b = born; y = becomes toddler; c = becomes child; t = becomes teen; u = goes to college; a = becomes adult; e = becomes elder; d = dies; + = moves in; - = moves out.

At the end of sophomore year, the group moves into their own house, inviting Caryn and Brandon to join them. The six of them spend much of the semester adjusting to a lifestyle that is, surprisingly, about as hectic as the dorm! By the time they're halfway through junior year, however, everyone's doing fine.
