The holidays are upon us, and we have a lot of excitement going on at the Unofficial BBS! Here’s a reminder of the events that we are currently running:
Round Robin Legacy Challenge [here]
Generation 3 is about to be wrapped up, and soon we’ll be voting for the Generation 4 heir! But we still have a few unclaimed generations, so if anybody is interested in signing up, we’d love to have your participation.
Tutorial Week & 12 Days of Christmas [here]
This is an event for creators, new and old! We’re requesting and making CC tutorials, and then for the 12 Days of Christmas, we’re creating gifts with our new knowledge to share with one another. Signups are currently ongoing. The more the merrier!
Monthly Writing Challenge
The month writing challenge for December has been postponed to January, since we have a lot of other events going on this month. Look out for the new prompt to be posted in a few weeks!
At times, I think I want to marry my name replacement mod.
Is that even a real surname?
So I’ve always wondered why pregnant sims can’t get in hot tubs…
It turns out, actual pregnant women shouldn’t use hot tubs because the heat can cause birth defects or something.
I did not know this. Biology is good for something at least.
DID YOU KNOW? Having at least one square of swimming pool on a lot will give any lake water on the lot the same reflective qualities & ripple/colour effects as pool water. You can even hide a single pool tile under foundation. The reflections can sometimes be glitchy, especially for lots with a lot of nearby ‘hood decoration, and may induce extra lag, but otherwise will not affect gameplay.
Edit: I believe this might also require Seasons, which changed the way pool water looked/behaved.
gay marriage is legal in the sims god damn it real world sort your shit out
lets talk about sims for a minute
in sims, your appearance doesn’t matter. you can pursue what career you want and not get paid less for being a certain gender. you can change your sim’s gender or life at any time. what other sims care about is if you’re nice or if you kick over their gnome.
also men in sims 2 can get pregnant by aliens
