- Huh. Dude I'm playing had a pregnant friend over, and then suddenly she was in labor, so he drove her to the hospital? Now he has a +80 moodlet just as if it was his own kid.

- Ever since I installed Story Progression this town is a massive soap opera. The kind where absolutely everybody is related by blood, marriage, or both.

- Also I want to fix some of the flavor text so bad. "We don't like each other... and I think the feeling is mutual!" AGH.

- I like that there are consequences to mediocre parenting that aren't "kid is taken away forever". It's one thing to deliberately starve your child and another if you don't make him do his homework every single frickin' day.

- I also really enjoy the books for toddlers. Not that I was a book freak from age two myself, or anything. >_>

Whoa whoa whoa. Why didn't anybody TELL me that if you click on a need-related moodlet -- exhausted, smelly, &c. -- it automatically queues the proper action?


this almost makes up for my current family getting themselves banned from China.

The bad news is, I never did manage to get Sims 2 revived. The good news is, I have a new laptop that will actually run Sims 3, which between you and me and the bedpost was the game I actually wanted in the first place. (Presumably that means it can even cope with S2 as well, if I get nostalgic.)

Weird Sims Logic of the day: I took my eye off my Inappropriate matriarch for one minute and she was making a move on her son-in-law (Zhan Su, late of Shang Simla). This is hilarious and awful but not the weird part; what's weird is that her son now has a negative relationship with Zhan and not with her, despite the fact that poor Zhan was all WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU LADY.

Pity there's not a Psychiatrist career. Kid's gonna need one.
