The sims was my first video game experience in my life, after the first step of like, jumpstart for tykes learning games.
Way back when i was like, 7 or 8 i think...? My mom had practically the entire sims 1 franchise. I don't really remember much of that, but i DO remember my favorite expansion was making magic. I liked raising the dragons. Then when the Sims 2 came out, we played all of that, and even The Sims Medieval. I think IMO the Sims 2 was hands down, the best rendition of the series. It was SO GOOD.
3 wasn't bad, but it kind of started losing it's magic and lore at this point.
And Sims 4 is just...A ridiculous mock up of the series and ultimately killed the entire thing I think...Lore of the game is gone, the game wasn't even finished when it came out, and it's impossible to play because the entire thing borders a thousand dollars in cost. I mean, it's a joke.
But, this is the version I currently play because it is a lot more optimized than three, and I don't have to fiddle with it to get it to run. I'm also a HUGE fan of the cottage living expansion, that's something I've been waiting for like, the entire series.
Anyway, this page is where I'm going to fit in all of my sims antics.
Shilah was the starting point of this family. He was an aspiring author who moved to the countryside to seek inspiration. He lived self sufficiently until he built up enough income to move to a better location, and eventually achieved "bestselling author" status after a lot of sleepless nights of typing away at the computer. Finally having achieved his dreams, he decided to settle down and start a family, and proposed to his best friend. It was at this point that he found out that she was actually an alien in disguise. ...Surprise? After their marriage, they have one planned kid (which ended up being twins) and a third after a series of alien abductions... Shilah lovingly cares for his family and weird half-alien children, but can't help but wonder if he's being used as a colonization device.
Shea is a disguised visitor from outer space! Her otherworldly origin is a mystery...a lady must never reveal her secrets, after all.
She has an obsession with a tidy home, and a bit of the...obsession for a five-fingered discount.
The neighbors may frequently find items missing after throwing a house party and making the mistake of inviting the Cantrells.
Her true motives on earth are unknown. Perhaps like Shilah, she just wanted to start somewhere new and find inspiration in a different scenery? Who knows.
Or perhaps she just finds humans funny. "I just think they're neat!"
The first of two twin sons, Kobe has a rather mild and quiet demeanor. He's a huge momma's boy and can't go to bed without a bedtime story, or he has night terrors. He never makes a mess, and loves to talk about his favorite superheroes. He's never seperated from his twin brother.
Ismael (Izzy) is Kobe's brother, and possesses a personality of the exact opposite. He throws fits when he doesn't get what he wants, he's fussy, and he loves to make messes. Be careful leaving anything out around him, it's going to end up on the floor. He keeps everybody on their toes. He loves to play with his dolls.
