The Browns: Round 5 / The Secret's in the Sauce


Contessa Hailey is wishing for Peace of Mind.  Me too.  I wish it were this easy to make my plumbbob platinum.  As a matter of fact, she's lucky I played this round a year ago or she wouldn't be making wishes without being taxed out the wazoo.

It's now time to revisit the Hamilton family, where six cats outnumber the four humans living there.

The Bauers: Round 5 / Delusional Days (Years)

I just realized as I was writing this that I must have quit choosing random scenarios for my sims.  I guess I hate the idea of choosing bad things to happen to my sims, even if it does make the story more interesting.  It's funny, because I'm not opposed to choosing punishments for my sims that tick me off.  When I actually get to start playing again (I'm an entire round behind on my blogging) I think I'll go back to random scenarios again, but I'll have to give it more thought and maybe weed out the scarier possibilities.  I think I'll just post my list of the possible random scenarios soon.  I found many ideas that others have used, plus I've thought of a few fun ones of my own.

Additionally, I want to start focusing more on building up some more neighborhood businesses for more realism and less focus on earning points.  I'll have to wait to get caught up on the story again to actually change anything.  I want to have actual business hours for my businesses, and have my sims who don't have LTW careers work for neighborhood businesses.  I think that could be fun, along with having more financial restrictions to make things a little more challenging.

And now, we return to the continuing story of Apple Grove.  We are back to the Bauers this chapter.


Morgan and Cassandra have a first kiss.
