Every few month the BelleDonna District Hospital organizes a tour of the maternity ward. This way the new parents will get a look of where everything will happen and they also get a lot of information.
Elisa and Harald have gone through it all before, but Elisa would have been much happier if Harald could come with her when ever she needed to go to the gynocologist. Unfortunatly with his job, it's not always possible so Elisa has to go on her own.
I'm very aware that there haven't been a lot of updates lately, and I'm very sorry about that.
I have been playing though, and my game has been running every weekend, well almost every weekend, but I just didn't feel like writing the next update. I've started it in May and it hasn't changed a thing since than.
The families I've been playing, have been really interesting, at least I think so, and I also think they would make some nice updates, if I could only get this first one going!
I haven't been just playing my sims, I've also been building, and rebuilding, and thinking of things I want to do, and execute them, and ...
I wanted you all to see what I've been doing, without spoiling the next updates, so here a few pics of the thing I've been building and rebuilding.
This is the SVU campus, located on the boarder of Simmeria; with several faculties, most of them still need to be build, 3 dorms, private housing, community lots, ...
When you follow the road to the left of the map you'll be heading to SimsVille, on the right is the rest of Simmeria.
The May Forum Project at N99 was a make over of a residential lot (the Veronaville Villa) to a community lot.
I was really glad with this project, especially since I was able to
participate because I had 2 weeks off from work.
When I saw the top down view of the ground floor, I immidiatly thought to make it into something 'mall'-like, and so I did.
And this is the result. I hope I didn't break any rule by resizing the
lot in lotadjuster, it was a little bit too big to fit in my hood, and I
don't like those big empy space maxis created with a lot of their lots.
Some time ago I said in Twitter I was planning something 'special' to post here, so this is it.
The reason this is special to me, is because I've been planning this for some time now, I think from about I started blogging, at least not long after that, and that's almost 4 years ago.
I always love getting a peek into some one else's hoods, and so I thought it would be nice to do an 'In and Around'-series. And what better part of my hood to start then SimsVille?
SimsVille consistst of 2 parts; SimsVille and SimsVille Up Hill. For better pictures I decicded to do those seperatly.
As you can see on the picture, there are 5 main roads in SimsVille, there is another one, but there is no building on it at all.
As you can also see I've given them all a color, under the picture you can see who's living on that street and what businesses are there. The arrow in the color of the street indicates from where I've started.
The white arrow, pointing to the top of the picture, indicates the road to Simmeria.
For the March/April Forum Project at N99, Carla asked for a rebuild of The Claudette.
Since I was in need of something similar, and I always liked the look of the original Claudette, I decided to give it a go, and this is the result:
I know it's been a while since my last update, and here I am asking for some kind of help ...
There haven't been a lot of updates since I really hadn't had much time. I changed jobs at the beginning of the year, and I'm no longer working in shifts. Since I only do day-work now, I don't have as much time to play, write or even keep up with the blogs I follow or the forums I'm a member of.
So I'm really sorry for that.
The other reason I haven't been updating a lot, is because I've been having the pink flashing problem Carla had. I've been ignoring it for some months, and since it's such a random problem, it sometimes seems the problem was fixed.
I've been able to play these past few weeks without any problem, and I was starting to feel confident again, untill today. After exiting a lot my hood was pink again. I entered a house, and went back to the hood, and then another house, and again back to the hood, no pink anymore and no crash, but I'm kind of scared to play again.
The thing is, I really don't feel anything for rebuilding, I had to do it once, and I'm really not looking forward to it. I'm have a huge respect for Carla and Maisie who are doing it at the moment, but I just don't think I can bring myself to do all of that.
The problem is that the only other solutions is to start all over. I'm not looking forward to this either. It will be a lot of work as well. And even though it might be a new chalange, and it will be interesting to see new sims and explore their personalities and backgrounds and all, I will miss my current sims so much.
And the last problem is that I don't want to redownload everything I have in my downloads-folder.
So this is where I could use some help, tips or whatever you all are willing to share; I have no idea what to do know, please give me your ideas!
