You may not realize it, but the gallery is basically groups of sims in the following configurations:
- mom, dad, children (teens and younger)
- mom, dad
Rare exceptions to the above. It is the exceptions I’m after. Unique with a story that I can embellish as needed to give the sim something more than just a name and clothes.
It is no wonder I’m having trouble auditioning for the contestant spots. I did find Sean. I thought the story was interesting and since he starts as a teen I of course need to age up the family appropriately.
Backstory: Sean Jennings
Sean has a twin brother named David. The two spent their teenage years raising their younger brother and sister as best as two kids could. Now they are grown up looking to find a way out of their current living situation.
Sean has set his sights on this new Bachelorette show he saw on television. He got his acceptance letter today and is trying to not feel guilty by leaving his brother David behind to care for Ian and Susan.
Sean wants love and a family. Will the bachelorette be “the one”? He hopes so, this house is getting very small.
For this one I wanted to see if an existing lot by Maxis would work – much like for my last contestant. Brook Bungalow in Willow Creek fit the bill. I had to add another twin bed to the toddler’s room; however it works. I’m trying to ensure all my contestants have a double bed at their house … because WooHoo is allowed on those dates 🙂
In adding clothes to Sean I discovered he was either barefoot or wore green sneakers. Even in formal. This will be fun. Because he is creative I started him on the writer career. I had to give him a few skills to help:
- Writing 7
- Painting 5
- Charisma 3
- Fitness 6
I walked away for about 30 minutes and let them run around a do whatever. Did a quick save and exited – so any previews on his family will come with the home visit!
