Author’s Note: 7/22/2016

Hello everyone! I apologize for the lack of updates. RL has been busy and I am still having difficulties with the hood. I am still crashing whenever I attempt to place new lots. The hood is six years old and I think it’s time is near.

Any free time with playing has been taken up with rebuilding the hood, before the original blows up and I lose everything. Since I’m building from scratch, it will be a while until the next updates.

I will continue to lurk around the community, as right now that’s all I can do at the moment. I haven’t even been able to boot up the game in six weeks. I hope every one is well and don’t you… forget about me… LOL

SPAT, Revisited

As I am playing the Tracy family for their upcoming update, I realized that Marianne Richward is 16. Sixteen?! I can’t believe she’s that old, a junior in high school and almost to university. Since she is my oldest playable teen, she is officially the first playable to attend a RMA (Rockport Metropolitan area) school. All current students are PNPCs and an out-of-area student from Apple Valley.

As I was reviewing her stats to make sure that she would have the necessary requirements for entry, I realized that my current guidelines were incredibly basic. I don’t have a scale to measure to, especially since Meade College is an Academie Society school (my equivalent to the U.S.’s Ivy League) and would have stronger requirements than the University of Rockport (URock). So I have decided to rework how the college entrance score, the Scholastic Performance Assessment Test, or the SPAT, much like Starr did for Apple Valley.

Round 3005: ROS

I’m nearing the end of the current round, so I decided to go ahead and roll for next round’s ROS.

RE-HAB (Sim enters rehab program for a vice, must learn anger management and life-long happiness. Upon completion, re-roll LTW)

CHANGE OF PLANS (Re-roll LTW )

WINDFALL OR NOT! (Win a contest at $9,000 )

DECREASE THE FAMILY (Dumping, but your Sim does the dirty deed of dumping their spouse/partner.)

COSMETIC SURGERY (Sim suddenly feels a desire for a new look. Deduct for the cost of the surgery)

************************************************************************************************************************

  • Okay, no deaths. But I’m at a complete loss about this pending split. I’m having grand ideas on how to handle it but still need to figure out the reason.
  • The surgery is the same problem. Why on SimEarth would this sim ever change their look?
  • When I reveal who had the re-hab, you will laugh your behind off. I know I did. This person is the least likely to ever have a vice, but okay.
