Recently, I lost my saving roll and purchased a few things in the Steam summer sale, most of which run on PC only, so I went to install them and found that something went wrong with the approximately three bajillion Windows updates I had to install--if you recall, that would be the Windows Update error informing me that I needed to update Windows Update before I could update Windows Update, but that it couldn't find the Windows Update update--so we torched my install and started over from scratch.
I'm not sure where my old Sims saved games are. We're both pretty sure that we set up some sort of place on my machine or one of my many external hard drives to write them to so I wouldn't lose them in this sort of eventuality, but there's no telling where they are at the moment. Which is kind of sad, as I'd created Sims to represent the three heroes of my late, unlamented webcomic, and their Sims life was pretty entertaining. At least to me, and a couple of nice readers who claimed they laughed. Click on the "Sims" tag to refresh your memory or to introduce them to yourself if you're new here.
So I'm debating recreating them and starting over. I did create Sims avatars for Toby, me, and the cats and let them loose for a couple of days. The ones where the cats were actual cats (I've got the Pets expansion) were pretty dull, really, and the one where I turned Sora and Nefer into teenagers living with us were only slightly better.
The high point of that game session was when Nefer decided to cook and put something into the oven, then wandered off. The oven caught fire, and Toby and Sora stood around panicking until a firefighter arrived, put the fire out, then lectured them both about fire safety.
Anyway, any other ideas for possibly-entertaining Sims other than Beecher, Genghis, and Jason?
