Wanted: Families!

Sunday, March 6, 2011

I made a post about this on the TSS forums, but I'd also like to extend it here as well:

As Season 5 is nearing the end and soon I will be moving back to focus on Twinbrook, I'd like to do a little bit of cleaning house on that neighborhood and get some new faces in there. The town seems pretty well populated, but it's starting to pull in a lot of "townies" as mates, and the town is starting to lose it's personality and it's full of Sims I don't recognize nor am interested in.

So, there's something I'd like to request: I need some families. I'm too impatient to introduce single sims and wait for them to pair off and have kids; I need a good, healthy mix of young and old sims. The families can be any mix of ages; they can be single parents with babies, they can be happily married adults with teenagers, they can be elders raising their grandchildren... I'm fine with pretty much anything.

Now, what I really NEED is some families with either: pregnant mothers, babies, or toddlers. I want to give my town a kick-start on the youngest generation, and families with Sims those ages are more likely to be featured later on in the story.

Though, I really can't guarantee that any of the Sims you guys put on the exchange for me will appear at all--nor can I guarantee that any Sims you give me will not suffer a gruesome fate of some sort. ;) But I do need Sims that are unique looking, have unique personalities, and are Sims I'd care more about including in my story at some point than Joe Schmoe Townie Sim.

So, here's what I need:

  • 4 - 8 families with children of all ages
  • Unique appearance and personality
  • At least 3 - 5 families with pregnancies/babies/toddlers

I was going to wait to ask until I was done with this Season, but I need some time to get everybody situated and I really want to get further ahead in screenshots than I was this Season, where I'm doing everything episode-by-episode (which is a pain in the royal tuckus!).

Oh, and PiB-darling--if you upload any, please no Sims of Grant/Leman descent. XD I need *new* blood!

Oh and if you guys are curious WHY I need more little munchkins...



Ahem. >.>

Anyways, I don't know how long it'll be 'til the next story update, but hopefully it'll be soon. I'm very excited about what I have planned after this Season is finished!

While playing on the island, I added some of my females and males. Some of them got together and had kids. I didn't make any changes to those kids but I could upload them and you can use them if you want to.
Alicia Longshore got involved with some paparazzi named Jayme Ferrara and they had a couple of rugrats. Cassidy ( formerly Fail) got with someone named Cyrus Britt and they had a kid. I can't remember what her new traits are. I do know she looks a little different than she used to. I'll upload those two familes, but not tonight. Tonight I'm going to sleep.

Kaleeko March 6, 2011 at 7:03 PM  

Awesome, Dee--Thank you so much. Just send me the links to them when you do. Sleep well. :)

M.J. March 6, 2011 at 7:10 PM  

First, love the picture. They are so cute together.

I haven't uploaded a family yet to the exchange. If I do, you can use them.

Kaleeko March 7, 2011 at 12:05 AM  

They definitely are cute, MJ. :)

And, no worries. I need the families relatively soon, but I'd prefer no one go out of their way to make any or anything. I'd just like to incorporate some families into my game that I might recognize and enjoy seeing about. :)

M.J. March 7, 2011 at 12:31 AM  

I cannot stop viewing it. I really love the picture. I really love them.

PiB March 7, 2011 at 12:44 AM  

New blood? Well, I can understand about no Grants but it's not looking great for a Leman gen 3 at the moment is it? LOL Cause Naomi's preferences won't lead to many kids - Lamont is still probably scraping what's left of his heart off the floor [sniff] [sob] [so cute...] and the youngest one ... hmm.

I do have one family that is neither Leman nor Grant in the exchange. But the female is Dee's AJ so I'm not sure if you want them or not.

Might give Jack Harkness a new family just for this. Jack is good for your hood. He causes such chaos.

Kaleeko March 7, 2011 at 12:51 AM  

Haha... Well, Lisa Leman still has plenty of time to make her mark on the world (I think she's still a teen), and Lamont was recently fixed up with a nice girl I'm going to pray he doesn't break up with. He's had 3 breakups with townies now... Not sure why his luck is so bad.

AJ is fine, I don't think I have her in my game yet (and if she has offspring that's in my game, it's obviously a subtle enough relation that I'd never notice).

I really need to start diversifying things, though. The big problem is that I'm gonna have families practically dominating the town at some point--and I have absolutely no problem booting Sims, even Kanes, to keep things fresh.

PiB March 7, 2011 at 1:03 AM  

Watch out Travis! She's feeling booty!

LOL

Families will probably dominate town at some point but it won't reach a crisis for another generation or two. :)

Kaleeko March 7, 2011 at 1:05 AM  

You may be right about that. ;) We'll see though. At the rate Travis is producing offspring, it's guaranteed that not all of his children will remain in Twinbrook forever.

But, who knows? I may actually leave Twinbrook behind if the town in the next EP is anywhere near as cool.

PiB March 7, 2011 at 1:16 AM  

Who knows about the next town. I just hope it isn't a city or if it is a city, they do a better job of catering for all Sims instead of the young and restless. Bridgeport just had too much club life and not enough of other stuff.

Amelia March 7, 2011 at 2:15 AM  

Weeeell, wince she's pregnant and they've got two kids barely into the child stage, I figured the Pesces might be a good family to use! I haven't put them on the exchange because I'm a noooob and it wouldn't work and I am far too tired tonight to try to figure out what's wrong with my launcher, so I've uploaded the .sims3 file to mediafire for you. Hopefully it works, but if something's wrong, let me know!

Get them hurrr: http://www.mediafire.com/?00ypy3u9tycy6y4

Kaleeko March 7, 2011 at 1:04 PM  

Hooray!! I was really hoping you'd be able to upload the Pesces for me. :) I can't wait to get them into my hood.

I don't have the new Stuff Pack so I'll have to change some hair/clothes and things, but I'll make sure they still look good.

Also, you're not a noob, the Exchange is just a flaming pile of horse$h1T@$^@&*%. ;) I have problems almost every single darn time I upload anything.

Amelia March 7, 2011 at 1:08 PM  

Oh yay, it's not just me! Haha.

I think the only one that uses OLS is Jane, for her hair/two everyday outfits. Feel free to make them over!

PiB March 7, 2011 at 1:25 PM  

Let me know if there are gaps after others respond. Since Grants and Lemans are no gos...if you don't like the Landgraab family I have on the Exchange, I'll have to build you something specific. :)

Kaleeko March 7, 2011 at 4:11 PM  

The exchange is notorious for being a pain in the arse, Amelia. I know a lot of people who use filesharing sites instead because EA doesn't seem to have a clue how to fix anything, haha. ^^

PiB, the Landgraab'sll be fine, though I'll pry change the surname so I don't feel like I'm being invaded by Sunset Valley. ;) You don't need to worry about making anything specific. With what I got offered from TSS, yours, Dee's, and Amelia's, I should have plenty--I may even make a couple of my own. I just really didn't want to have to make a gazillion fams. ;D

Dee March 7, 2011 at 4:20 PM  

Here are a couple of families for you. Just remember I didn't change clothes or anything. You will need to change their outfits and of course you can change anything else about them that you want to.
I think Alicia may be pregnant for the third time.
You may want to change Cassidy's daughters name. I swear I didn't do it. The game did. Her name is Mia. :D

http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=385781

http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3850777

Hope you like them. If you decide not to use them, don't worry.
I'm off to exercise for awhile now. I'll be back if I survive it.

Kaleeko March 7, 2011 at 4:24 PM  

Haha! I'll consider changing the name, though multiples don't really bother me. I know I've got a couple Thomases at the moment.

Thank you for uploading them, though! I'm sure I will definitely use at least one of them.

Hang in there, Dee! :D Try to have fun!

Dee March 7, 2011 at 4:24 PM  

Correction. the first link is missing a number. I pasted one and typed in the other like a dummy. http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=3850781
Hope it's right this time.

Kaleeko March 7, 2011 at 4:31 PM  

I'm not sure yet, Dee, since I keep getting Liam every time I try to go to EA's site, but if they aren't correct I do know how to find your studio. :)

Oh, and I have REALLY fantasticaliciously good news! I figured out why my game has been taking 40+ minutes to load!

Stupid Error Trap mod. Apparently trying to rid my game of glitches is making it load slow. ;D

Dee March 7, 2011 at 5:33 PM  

Dropped back in before I head to the shower.
Looks like the site is back up now. I saw a message that there was going to be maintenance tonight.

At least you know why it's so slow. That would have had me going crazy trying to figure it out.

Kaleeko March 7, 2011 at 5:39 PM  

Hahaha, you're right Amelia--It's *totally* ironic. XD

I was just about ready to go nuts, Dee. Some suggestions on the mod forums said it was probably the Story Progression mod, which was just not acceptable to me--so I'm glad I did some fiddling and found out the real cause. And I'm glad it ended up being a mod that I honestly didn't need.

Amelia March 7, 2011 at 6:00 PM  

Ha, I just found the Kane family on your exchange, and I'm totally uploading them into Riverview. Should be fuuun.

Kaleeko March 7, 2011 at 11:16 PM  

Hahah! Yeah, do whatever the heck you want with them, they're free fodder. :) There's several versions of them, but the "Season One" ones don't have Amelia.

There's probably also going to be a Brad/Alesha+Baby family uploaded soon, too. Got lots of stuff I need to chuck onto the exchange--if I can actually get them to upload, that is!

PiB March 7, 2011 at 11:44 PM  

Ok, I may be slightly insane but I will have to give Brad/Alesha family a pass. That would cause my tiny brain to explode....

One grown Brad family is enough... :)

Kaleeko March 7, 2011 at 11:48 PM  

Haha, I know. :) I didn't expect that you'd want them. You've got plenty of Kanes in all your hoods.

Amelia March 8, 2011 at 12:16 AM  

I might take them, however!

I've placed the Kanes innocuously in the background of my hood, just to see what they get up to while I'm playing the Pesces, hehe. But Brad/Alesha/baby cuteness will be amazing!

Kaleeko March 8, 2011 at 12:27 AM  

Mwahahah!! Awesome. :D

I'm probably be going to do some uploading within the next couple of days, so they'll be up soon. It means the name of the baby will be revealed a bit earlier than planned, but, that's not the end of the world! ;)

Seaweedy,  March 8, 2011 at 7:10 AM  

I knew Jerod was up to no good! I am intrigued by this party...who are these 'friends' of his?

Kaleeko March 8, 2011 at 1:06 PM  

Whoops, you commented on the wrong post, Seaweedy! ^^

Who are these friends, indeed. Aw man, must get to work on the next post, I'm terrible at letting people stew on cliffhangers. It's taking all my energy not to just blab what's going on. ;)

Kaleeko March 8, 2011 at 1:07 PM  

Thanks for comin' by! *sqeeze*
