The Five Units Challenge - Report #5 - On The Move

Life goes on in the Clump family - go here if you like to read about this challenge. Sylvia and Abraham now have 4 kids, and it's quite a handful to tackle! I expected the days to become a tad repetitive, but because the children reach new life stages, there will constantly be new content from the Parenthood GP for me to discover. I really enjoy it all!

Although, I've been thinking of moving this household, more about that below.

Abraham and Sylvia works quite well as a couple. I was a bit worried for Abraham being a Loner, would he coop with such a big family?

The Five Units Challenge - Report #4 - Skills status

My Five Units Challenge goes on, and it's time to consider the founders' main skills as well as the outdoor units they are supposed to build. The household now counts 2 adults, 2 children, 1 toddler and 1 baby. Thanks to the Parenthood GP this will probably become my most hectic household ever.

Everyday is starting to get real hectic for the Clump family. Abraham brings in most money by painting, and thanks to his latest masterpiece selling for nearly §2.000 they were able to expand the house with a new story. Sylvia grows and sells crops, which also brings in some money.

The Five Units Challenge - Report #3 - Growing Household

The Clump family lives on, and in this report from my ongoing challenge twins Rudolph and Sammy will grow up! In future reports there will probably be less pictures per lifestage, but right now I'm enjoying watching the everyday actions of the toddlers, and have to share :)

I'm impressed with how well adults take care of their small children on free will. My only complaint is that when I check what action they are up to, the thumb will not tell, because so many interactions starts with Talk or Walk, etc. I can tell they initiated something, but I'm not able to see whether I should interrupt them or if it's the action I wanted them to perform.

The Five Units Challenge - Report #2 - First Real Family

My little challenge for this summer/fall moves on rapidly, and twins just grew up, yay! Abraham and Sylvia had twins, and now seeing their genetics is quite exciting.

The toddlers seem to behave calmly and with manners, but I guess that will change soon enough? It's been a while since toddlers were introduced to TS4, but I hardly had time to play them until now.

The Five Units Challenge - Report #1 - Founders getting Started

I'm not having the time currently to play my games as much and detailed as I would like, so instead of random and quick visits to my ongoing hoods, I figured I'll run a smaller new TS4 challenge, allowing me to test the Parenthood gamepack. So, here's a few pictures from my new attempt at the Five Units Challenge. Find the rules here if you want to check it out!

I created Abraham Clump and Sylvia Rotting in CAS. They look quite ordinary, but according to rules a few details were given my attention. A small house was built and I was actually surprised how easy it was to get a decent starter home. I expected that their start funds would not give them a quite spacious home, but that they would need to stress a while to get the essentials.

Rewind: One Happy World Charity Show

[The Sims 2, 2008]  I found this recording in my archives, a pretty cool recording from a charity show arranged in my Simmerville Hood - long ago. I have forgotten the hostess' name, and most of the other featured sims' names, as well. But I still recall the magic.

It took days to get it all right, and there are so much that I would like to make different today. Did you ever record as show like this, and would you care sharing your link? Would love to watch it :)

Simmerville's Sims Update

Hello? Anyone out there? Or in here?

I've been very silent lately, sorry for that! I've spent a few weeks abroad, and I'm in the last phase of a larger job which takes most of my time right now. Not enough time to play my games, and definitely not to make updates for my ongoing series «San Myshuno Undercover» and «Life Unlimited». I even have several ideas for new series, so I can't wait to get back!

I think i will focus on SMU with only 2 episodes remaining. My plan for LU is many more episodes, although not very complicated story wise. And then there is the new idea... well, I better hold back a little.

If you subscribed to my Youtube channel you might have noticed some clips called «Silly Search» that are not Sims related. Those clips are a little project, mostly for fun, they are meant to be weird video greetings with a text message hidden somewhere inside. They are now moved to another channel, so you won't need to get them on you subscriber list unless you follow the new channel.

So, when can you expect any updates? SMU part 5 will definitely be up during March, part 6 before Summer. I don't expect LU to catch up before April, hopefully. In need of some green screen editing there, so I'll probably need some time to learn those basics :)

Stay tuned!
