A challenge for you all

Some of our Sims seem to have ultimate - this is their best match pairings. Others not so much so.

So who do you think would be the ultimate match for Thomas Leman? He's had a rather large range of wives (and a husband). I'm still not sure which would be his best match. Any prospective brides (or husbands, he is *very* open minded) that you think would be the one?

Posting drought

Need more posts to read! Help!

Forum Fatigue

The forum has never been a bastion of intelligence but it seems like it's slipping even further down the slope of idiocy.  It's rather stunning.  Before I lose what little I have left of my mind after sifting through the endless "gimme" threads, I think I'll step away from Sims 3 forums for a while.

Sorry for getting carried away here but....

I just put another Plum Puddle Park on the exchange. This one is for BB. I placed a 40x 40 lot on the beach across the street from Goldbeard Galleon Gallery and put it on there. I played around with the terrain and tried to make it look right.

On the exchange I'm calling it Ye Olde Park.

Attention Raisin Hale and Kaleeko

First a warning. I didn't change anything about Armando, Tatianna or the kids. Tatianna is now old and they are all wearing whatever they aged into.

They are now on the exchange.

In case anyone doesn't remember; I'm SelahFreeAtLast on the forum.

More BB pics

One of the smaller houses.

Another house.  I dig the bridge.

A small park.

The main beach area.  The building houses a bar, stereo, foosball table, etc.  Lots of bathrooms.  :P

Another small house. 

A large home with an elaborate pool in the front yard.

Overview of a very modern glass home.  It's on a tiny island separate from the main island.

Really cool waterfall with a little park and pond at the top.

I've found the disadvantage of short story blogs

Once I get started doing a Hi Mum or a Short Story, it's nearly impossible to do updates on the other games. If I don't have one in progress, then switching games seems quite natural.

So I doubt there will be much progress in any blog until this Sammy story is finished.

Copied/pasted from simprograms

SimFans tweeted a number of Late Night tidbits on their Twitter Page when they were able to check out the game for themselves from the Munich Event. Here’s a compilation of what they had to share. If you have Twitter, be sure to follow them!

•marketing manager (late night) said “the producers would add weather/seasons, but than they tought it would be better if they add it with a expansion pack, that makes more sense to weather than this “late night” theme

Ok, I'm excited

For the first time in month, my store content seems to be back and working. I can load old riverview saves and start a new riverview game. I have the hair styles I downloaded.

The trick turned out to be simply, delete the dc cache and rebuild it. It's looking good.

So tomorrow, I may celebrate by bestowing pressies on my friends with wish lists. Polish it up for me!

I had a hunch and took a gander at the default avatars.  Seems Mr. Sam Grant is a default avatar, vest and all.
