Loki Beaker FINALLY got abducted by aliens! *Does a happy dance* I've played him so many times, and had him up on the roof with the telescope night after night throughout his entire adult life; I was starting to think he was hard-coded not be to abducted.

Well last night, I installed meetme's cleaned neighborhood templates and moved Alexandra Teatherton to Strangetown. She quit her job as an Adventurer and is pursuing her LTW as a Captain Hero. I moved Ajay Loner into the same apartment complex as her and cheated so that they could be friends. They both got in the hot tub and Ajay did the 'splash' interaction with Alexandra, resulting in two bolts... THEN they fell in love when I moved Chester Gieke into the apartment complex. I got him into the Criminal career track and did the same thing; I cheated to make him friends with both Alexandra and Ajay. Only problem is that for some reason both Alexandra and Chester fell in love with each other, even though I was careful and hit 'Likes' on the Sim Modder for both. I don't plan on playing either of them extensively but it makes for good drama.

Iona Rai-Wrightley, just turned 18 and celebrated by marrying her mob boss boyfriend, Gordon King (who is 2 days away from Elderhood). She also gave birth to twins Wayne and Crimson King. None of these happy things could save their wedding party though, that was a complete disaster since Gordon attacked one of Iona's 13 year old sisters, let alone when he attacked the other. Oops. The couple seem happy though...

Kat Larson gave birth to her third child, Sherie Ottomas. The father is definitely her boyfriend, Richard Ottomas this time, thanks to the bright blonde hair. Her younger son, Clemant became a child. She now has 2 children and a Toddler, whilst living in a small 3 room (1 bedroom, 1 bathroom and a 4x6 living room/kitchen/dining room area) and only working part time. Hopefully once Richard graduates, he'll be able to afford them a nice fancy trailer to live in.

In the the trailer parks, Storm Powers became a teenager, following her older brother Axel. Her younger sister Girr still has 3 more days of childhood. Jonah got fired from his job for coming in late again - shame, he was due a promotion and with that money he was going to move his family to a nice house. Him and Roxie are starting to argue because of the stress that has put on her. She works at a diner in Bluewater village and there's no chance of climbing up the career ladder. Jonah's starting to become friendly to Gordon King, maybe a job in the criminal career track is on the horizon? (Provided Jonah never finds out his youngest daughter is actually Gordon's)

Over in the secret mini-mansion just outside of the city, Fricorith Tricou has gotten himself one of those fancy death phones. Hmm... Who will he resurrect? Maybe his parents? Rainelle? The old vampire woman (Allegra Gorey) who lived in his house before him and loves scaring him on his way to work?

I just stopped for the night but I installed ACR earlier and it's totally awesome. I tested it on some college kids in my test hood (Veronaville) and I started using it on a CAS couple. Ben and Tim Daniels' autonomy wasn't at it's highest but whenever Tim came home from work they would always make out on the couch in their undies. Then I tested twojeff's 'preg for all genders', but I forgot that whoever initiates the interaction they get pregnant... it was Tim . But Squinge's 'pregnant sims wear any outfit' mod works great! All except the fact that there's no mesh for the particular clothes Tim wore, so there was no baby bump, but that'll be solved with a download from here. During this time Ben adopted a neighborhood stray named Ilia(?) and Tim gave birth to a son they named Austin. Of course the moment was ruined by a Hobby NPC coming in to give Tim a card to the secret cooking lot . I didn't take a lot of pictures but here's Austin as a toddler. I couldn't get the camera as close as I wanted to but he takes more after Ben (the one with black hair).





With this I'm gonna eat something and head to bed, I told myself I wouldn't stay up too late and yet here we are .

Primavera, you are having so much fun with your new computer! I agree, ACR is the bomb.


Barbara Jones has been extremely worried since her miscarriage. The doctor has told her she doesn't dare try again. That makes her very low in importance to Lord Krankor and the Chicken Court. She fears he is looking for a reason to send her, Edward, and Bobby to the penal colony. She's not worried about herself or Edward. She's worried about Bobby. There's no coming back from the penal colony.

It's official. They failed to clear tax season, meaning their income was too low to contribute their fair share (90%). They know the Big Eye has been turned on them and are terrified. Barbara called an old friend of her dad's, Maximillian Oglethorpe. He would do anything for his BeBe, so he agreed to sell his home and move in with them to try to help boost their income. He didn't really want to sleep on the sofa, and their house is so small, so he's planning to do some refurb to it.

Max took a good, hard look at their finances. He didn't get a retirement from his job because all retirements were nulled by Lord Krankor. So, all he brought with him was the money from the sale of his house and his savings. The Jones' had saved almost nothing. Max got a job, but has very little chance of advancement. They aren't going to make it. He is determined to keep them out of a penal colony. So, he convinced the pair to advertise for room mates. Thus, Matthew and Jessica Picaso have joined the group. They are still in a cramped space, so adjustments will have to be made. There will be sleeping on sofas and chairs. They probably will end up moving some of the appliances and the bathrooms outside under tarps. But, they will meet tax season, they hope.

Gone, though, are the dreams of Bobby's going to college. It's so expensive only the richest, most influential people can afford it. Barbara and Edward are going to sit down with him and explain it to him.

My first lot of born-in-game Sims (The unborn babies of Pascal Curious, the Patel's & Brandi Broke, as well as some Sims I decided should have children: Regan and Cornwall Capp, The Ramaswarmi's and Picasso's) all graduated college and/or became adults this rotation.

Admittedly, some born in game Sims have already gone off to have their own children when they were teens and young adults, so I can't really say the next generation is starting... In fact the oldest sim with at least 1 born-in-game parent (Reece Ottomas) is halfway through childhood already. But. Still. It's so amazing to think these Sims have grown up (admittedly very slowly seeing as I've been playing this megahood since 2014) if these Sims were real, and aged normally... They'd be 4!!

If you're wondering, the Ottomas twins are a little younger, as this was when UC first came out and I wasn't sure Samantha's pregnancy was fixed, I terminated it and made her pregnant again. The twins will become adults soon enough though.

I am :D! I'm treating this desktop like it's precious cargo, I make sure it's cleaned of dust and I check for updates often to keep it running. And yes, ACR is the best invention since sliced bread. I gotta get used to the controls, some things are a little confusing (like I set a couple to be 'Married Only' or something under jealously and it resets back to 'In Love'), and the 'Sim Can/Cannot Get Pregnant' still trips me up but so far it works as it should be. Next thing to do is to install a camera mod to take better pictures and all of the downloads I have in my favorites .

I've been too lazy to update what's been going on. Some recent highlights from some of the families.

Burb: John and Jennifer are both nearly at the top of their careers (Education and Athletic) Lucy moved to college. The twins are now teenagers. Ryan is a Popularity Aspiration and is dating Nina Caliente's oldest daughter, Claudia. Sam is a Fortune Sim and has three chemistry bolts with Claudia, rather than the two Ryan has with her. We'll see what happens with that. John is also now an Elder.

Pleasant: My last update in this forum was Daniel being an idiot and getting caught cheating with Kaylynn by Mary-Sue. He reluctantly married her after Kaylynn becomes pregnant. They had a daughter named Brooklyn. Mary-Sue moved out. Because she was becoming lonely and wanted to help a child like her parents and done for her, she decided to adopt a child named Shelly. Angela and Lilith have both graduated from college. Lilith is engaged to a bartender.

Dreamer: Since his divorce with Rachel, Darren has been focusing most of his time on their son who lives with him. Cedric has the Knowledge Aspiration and already has many skill points. Dirk is off at university and in a relationship with Meadow.

Lothario: One of Don's twins with Cassandra moved into Don's place once he was a teenager. Vincent never got along with his mother or his own twin. Don is now a family Sim after the death of his wife Dagmar. He sees Vincent is following in his old ways. It's not exactly surprising since Vincent has the exact same personality at Don. One day while taking his other son Dean to the park downtown, he met a townie named Elizabeth. They were quick to fall in love and get married.

Goth: Mortimer died, leaving the Goth family fortune to Dina. Alexander is off at college and doesn't completely trust her with that much money. Dina and Mortimer's daughter Victoria is one of the most popular Sims I've played. She fits well into the socialite life. Their son Edward is the splitting image of Mortimer.

Sorry I just logged on; but it's twojeff's Preg for All Genders, AL version! It gives you the percentage of how they can successfully get pregnant and the percentage of risky woohoo. Just be careful about which one initiates the action if it's a same-sex couple; like I said, I originally wanted Ben Daniels to get pregnant, but Tim did because he was the one that initiated the 'Try for Baby' action :D

Oh, okay thanks. I thought you were saying it was part of ACR. I once had the mod you're talking about, but there was some conflict so I removed it. Oh well. I'm having a problem with women in my handmaid hood getting pregnant. I set ACR as low as it will go, but it's like a baby explosion over there. Kind of puts a crimp in the entire purpose of the hood.

Well it works alongside ACR, from what I understand. And so far there's no conflict in my game, but I'm sorry that happened :'(. And maybe it'll help if you put your sims on birth control through ACR?

You can do that? That would be perfect! I hate all these births messing up the story line. And, of course, they are often multiple births.

Yep you can! I haven't tried it yet but you can put a sim on birth control, and if you want, take them off birth control. And you wouldn't happen to have the triplet/quadruplet birth mod by twojeffs would you? Or is it just twins you're getting a lot of?

I have the triplet/quad mod, and I love it. I set the odds for multiples higher. But, the problem is they aren't supposed to be getting pregnant in the first place. I have the risky pregnancy meter set as low as I can, but I'm still getting a lot of babies. I guess I could use the bathroom mirror that has the birth control mod, and I do it sometimes if the mirror just happens to be there. But, I DO want the random child, just not the explosion I'm having.

Right now not much because playing my megahood revealed a tiny little problem... Going from one hood to the other and watching all those sims together, made me want to pull my eyes out because I realized that my reluctance (or my laziness) to download cc except from game relating hacks, has lead my sims to look alike and boring . There are only a few maxis items (clothes and hair) that I like so I kept using the same content on and on and I had to end that. So, the past weeks I'm downloading a lot of stuff from here on mod the sims (I don't trust other sites to not break my game) and I know that my "tiny little problem" will be solved (and I'll keep my eyes in place ).
During my "downloading madness" (as I call it!) I "discovered" Riverside and I had to try it. So, when I am taking a break from "cc searching", I'm playing this hood and I have to say I love it. It looks so big and I like the fact that it has so many families to play with and so much empty space too. I'm playing weekly rotations of all the premades and I have added 3 more CAS families. Right now, I'm on the end of the second week for all the households. ACR is doing what it's supposed to do and most families have or going to have more babies on the way.

The Baxters, except from Alex, the child they already had, they now have Brian who is a toddler and Callie who is still a baby. Brian has his father's hair colour, his mother's eyes colour and... exactly the same personality his father has. Don and Sarah have fixed their relationship because from the first moment I played them, ACR kicked in and Sarah got pregnant asap. Don has already reached his LTW to become a Slacker and Sarah is doing good on the Science career but her pregnancies have kept her back a little. But they are lucky because every time they need a nanny, Sarah's father Thomas Thompson, is invited over and he is very happy to babysit his grandbabies (he also doesn't have a choice on the the matter because I make him selectable ).
So, everything seems good with the Baxters but it's not entirely because Don still has his affair with Dina Ross.

Dina is on the Culinary career and woohoos everyone she can get her hands on. After fulfiling the want to "woohoo with 3 different sims" and having Marty Anderson on her... speed call as her booty call, she got "unlucky" on her way to "woohoo with 5 different sims" because she got pregnant by Claire Sandiago (who was already pregnant by Trenton Russel but she was on her first trimester so she didn't show!) and after a very difficult pregnancy, Dina gave birth to twin boys, Trevor and Tristan who are still babies.

Over the Russels' household, Trenton Russel and Claire Sandiago are in a relationship (kind of because they are both Romance sims!) and Claire gave birth to Linda, who is now a toddler and has her mother's eyes and hair and she is very outgoing like both her parents are. Claire is also on the Athletic career. Martha Russel works on the Intelligence career and she is desparate for romance and babies but I didn't have the time to find her a boyfriend too. I was too busy trying to control Trenton's and Claire's "urges" because this house is too small for more babies... Josh, on the other hand, has become an overachiever (he works on the Law Enforcement career) and he has surprised me with having almost 2 girlfriends He has only one Outgoing personality point and his mother always rolls wants to make him more outgoing but the stupid points aren't going up! He had his first woohoo with Gina Jefferson (which was Gina's and ACR's doing, poor Josh ) but he has 3 bolts with Melissa Brooke with whom has much more in common (both Family sims and almost no outgoing personality points!). Their relationship though moves slower than a snail or a probably because they are both too shy and, for mysterious reasons, ACR "respects" their personalities (that's a first ) and despite their 3 bolts they are only BFFs.

The Brookes are one of my favourite households. Abraham reached the top of Law Enforcement career but he is far from his LTW to win 100000. He has maxed his Mechanical skill (and the tinkering hobby) though and he restores cars to win more money. Macey gave birth to the baby she was pregnant with before the game started and it's a girl, Maggie (now a toddler). Maggie is one of the cutest, sweetest kids I've ever seen born since I started to play the Sims 2. She is just adorable . Towards the end of the household's last rotation, Macey got pregnant again and I have to wait for their next rotation to see the baby (grrr!). Danielle and Melissa are both overachievers (Danielle - Politcs career and Melissa - Law Enforcement). When I played the household for the first time I noticed an "inconsistency" between the girls' bios and the video about Riverview I watched on Youtube and their "reality". None of the girls knew Josh Russell despite their bios claiming otherwise! During their second rotation, though, Danielle brought Josh home from school so both she and Melissa got to know him. Danielle had to leave for work, though, and both Josh and Melissa had the day off, so they spent the afternoon together and they started their oh-so-slow-and-platonic relationship. During that week Danielle kept rolling wishes to spend time with Josh which I kept ignoring because I thought that I should give Josh and Melissa a chance. I chose to encourage Danielle's relationship with Blake Brooklyn (they have much more in common!).

The Brooklyn household was a pain in the beginning. First of all I was obsessed with Isabel getting pregnant and it wasn't happening . Neither Try For Baby worked nor ACR could do the magic! Charles and Isabel were always exhausted from work (Charles - Culinary and Isabel - Education) and from... too much woohoo! Meanwhile the whole atmosphere in the house was like a ticking bomb because of Blake's and Gregory's relationship. It was so weird. Blake is supposed to be the "good" kid (6-7 nice personality points) and Gregory the not-so-good kid (0 or 1 nice point). But it was always Blake who was "poking" and "shoving" Gregory and clearly looking for a fight. Blake's relationship with his brother was all negative (both bars) but Gregory's bars were much higher (more than 50 and, if it was up to him only, they would be friends from the beginning!). So I always left Kenneth alone on the chess table (poor kid, he maximized Logic in no time ) while his brothers were on the other chess table (yeap! I bought them two ) trying to fix their relationship. Soon enough I realized that chess wasn't going to work because Gregory always cheated which made the relationship worse than it already was but only from Blake's side. Gregory was having a blast with that. So I "cheated" too and gave Gregory some more nice points (thank you SimManipulator ) and things started to move on the right side. Except one day when I was busy making Charles and Isabel to try for baby (again!) and I wasn't watching the boys. It took only a moment and Blake attacked Gregory (personality "good" points be damned ) and he won the fight (Blake is on the Athletic career and he has maxed his Body skill). After that Gregory was furious with Blake and I had to fix their relationship again. Each free moment they both had, Blake was "apologizing" to Gregory (I don't know if he really wanted to do that but I didn't care!) and they were talking about their hobby "games" (all that chess they played lead somewhere, they both have more than 8 logic points and they both get sholarships!). At some point between all that "game talking" and "apologizing", I heard baby chimes. Yes! Isabel was pregnant. Meanwile, one day Blake "asked" to bring Danielle Brooke home with him after school (I love that hack that lets me decide if I want someone to come home with a household member) and I said "no" so he could get the 20 relationship points with her and after some talking on the phone they became best friends. On a Sunday morning I "told' him to invite Danielle over and I saw the 2 bolts they had, so he asked her to go steady (weird: no woohoo? what happened ACR? ). The last day of the household's rotation, Isabel gave birth to another boy, Finn. Damn, I was hoping for a girl...

There are more new babies in Riverside to talk about but I think this post is already too long, so I'll go back to download all the wonderful content mod the sims has (hopefully my download folder won't "explode" anytime soon!).

I see I see. Yeah I toyed around with the triplet/quad settings but I left it as is because i have to get the hang of the percentage. I chose twins when my sim got pregnant again and was in labor when the dialogue prompt came up. But hopefully you'll get it figured out, sounds like a circus in your game .
