I know that this isn’t much, but until I am able to fix the problems with my game, I’m going to try posting things over on Christy’s tumblr account. Basically it will be just pictures that might not have made it into the actual story. I might reveal some of my plans for future updates there as well. I’ve been doing this for about two weeks so there are already a few things posted there. Like I said, it isn’t much, but it’s as much as I’m currently able to do without completely disappearing on you guys again.
My name is Adam and I’m from a large family – like a ridiculously large family. Don’t believe me? I’m the 70th child that my mom has had. This doesn’t count my six siblings that she has had since me or all the kids that she has adopted and given a good home to on top of all us biological kids. Mom loves kids – a little too much if you ask me – and due to some crazy situation in her past, we aren’t even allowed to talk about most of my older siblings because Mom is supposed to be dead. The whole thing never really made sense to me, but I’m getting off topic. I was supposed to be telling you about me, not my mom and her past. That’s top-secret anyway. Continue reading
I will never forget the day that Jade finally aged into a young adult.
I know that I kind of disappeared on you guys again and you absolutely deserve an explanation for that. You probably don’t remember, but this time last year, I made an announcement that I was having trouble with my computer and had to do a full system restore. I was able to restore my computer back to the factory default with no problem. The problem had been that my Sims games were packed away in storage. When I was able to finally get my games out of storage around September of last year, I was only able to find a handful of them. The base game and first two expansion packs were not among the ones I found. Mostly it had been more of the recently purchased expansion packs. In order to continue the story, I downloaded a digital copy from Origin because I had programmed my codes on the Sims 3 site and it literally took forever to just get the base game on my computer.
But it worked and I was able to play for a little bit. Back around January, I tried to load my game up and play a little bit more. That’s when I discovered another problem. My problem is that none of my saved sims – neither downloaded nor saved from my own game – are showing up in CAS in the sim bin. They are all showing up in the SavedSims folder, but not when I actually load the game and try to load them in CAS. Because my game has always hated the Sims3Packs and refuses to install them correctly, using .sim and .package files has been the only way I could get any downloaded content into my game.
Does anyone know if the .sim files are no longer working because I downloaded the earlier games off Origin while the newer games are all installed from a disc? I honestly don’t think that would be the case, but it’s the only thing that is different from before. I’ve tried taking all the custom content out just in case and they still didn’t show that way either.
So I can’t put the male sims that I need into the neighborhood with Christy until this problem gets fixed. I’ve been trying different things for months now trying to get them to show up with no luck so if you have a suggestion, I would greatly appreciate the help.
For the next month and a half, I will be pretty busy with planning my son’s birthday party, going on vacation, and moving. Moving means that I will be able to go through my storage building completely and maybe find all of my Sims 3 discs so I can uninstall and reinstall everything to hopefully fix the problem. *fingers crossed* But if you happen to have a solution to the problem or even if it’s just a suggestion, please mention it.
So things have been a little tough for the past week and a half. There is a lot of sickness going around. My 16 month old son was actually sent to the ER this past Tuesday night because the doctor was so worried about him. Thankfully he wasn’t admitted into the hospital and didn’t have to stay in the ER as long as they originally thought he would have to. He is still sick, but getting better and since I am the one that has been taking care of everyone, I ended up sick as well. So that’s the reason for the delay in the next update.
So I took these pictures very early last week before Halloween and then kind of got wrapped up with things so I couldn’t upload them. Still I didn’t want the pictures to go to waste so here they are.
A few months after Derek and Donald were born, it was time for my first vampire babies to grow up and move out. Lauryn…
Not long after Adam was born, the teenagers came home talking about going to prom. All five of my teens were excited and anxious to go to their prom. Since it was such a big day for so many of my kids, I saved a little money and hired a limousine for the special occasion. They were ecstatic when it pulled up into our driveway the night of prom.
“Everyone is going to be so jealous when they see us coming.” Lauryn stated.
“This is great. Thanks mom!” Lindsay added.
Welcome back! I hope you enjoyed the last update, but we still have quite a few babies to get through and this update will no doubt be longer than the last because of just how much happened in the second half of Christy’s challenge so far.
We start this update with a very special father. Gordan Williams – originally a female sim I downloaded off the exchange and turned male – was chosen for a special post about breast cancer awareness.
Christy Quinn started her challenge back in April 2010.
