So today I had a funny idea for Sims. I came home and started tweaking. Unfortunately, my screencaps are kind of on the small side; Pie's going to have to teach me how to take nice big ones like she does. But you can see what's going on, pretty decently.
Basically, I moved myself and Kevin into a big Federal-style mansion with six of the kids. You can only have up to eight people living in one house, so I had to pick. I went with clez
, and _revolutionary
. Claire, Jerry, Kristie, Jonathan, and Lyn are all teenagers; Raven, since she's my youngest, is a child. I made these guys as much like the real people as I could; I think Kristie and Kevin's Sim versions are particularly similar to the real thing.
So. Screencaps.First, the family portrait.
Kevin and I are in the middle, of course. That's Jerry on one knee in front; Kristie is in the pink dress; Raven is the little one with glasses. Jonathan is the blond boy. Lyn is in a Ravenclaw uniform because I said so, and Claire is in the back.
I put a lot of work into making this a beautiful home filled with books and culture. Here's the living room.
Other rooms include the dining room
, the master bedroom
, and the entry foyer
Raven, being the youngest, has the room next to Mommy and Daddy. She's also the only member of the family with a room all her own
.The boys share this room.
Mom is very nice about letting them hang that picture of a woman on the wall.
The entire third floor is the girls' bedroom
. Kristie sleeps in the middle bed; Lyn's is on the far left. Claire is the eldest, so the armoire is positioned in such a way as to give her a little privacy.This is our backyard.
It includes workout equipment, a swing set, a barbecue grill, a telescope, and a hot tub. It also has a rather bitchin' pool.Raven reads the newspaper.
She might be job-hunting, I'm not sure.Claire earns creativity points by learning to paint masterpieces.Jon, on the other hand, prefers to earn them by mastering the piano.Kevin and I don't really care what the kids do; we're happy to canoodle in the hot tub by ourselves.
