Christy’s Tumblr Account

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.

Baby #80

After the triplets were born, I decided that I needed to change my look. What with all the pink now in the house, I worried that my neighbors might begin to get a bit suspicious and my cover of being a foster mom might be blown.

Baby 77, 78, and 79

After everything that happened with Adam, I agreed to allow his homeless werewolf girlfriend, Ingrid to move into the spare bedroom above the garage with Kenley. I also enrolled her in the local high school even though it was so late in the school year. She was surprisingly very smart and had no trouble catching up with what all she needed to learn to graduate with Adam.

But first, there was prom.

“Just one more picture, Adam.” I pleaded. Continue reading

Mini-Update: Adam

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

Still Alive…

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.


A nasty cold

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.
