Tired Too, 2007

Resar, fall, 2007

Grex and Ginger are 35, Bryant and Annie are 12, Breckin is 5, Lara is 4, Indira is 2, and Richmond is 1

Every fall was busy around the Grey household, but Ginger was still frustrated. It had been weeks since she and Grex had been intimate and she was sick of it.

"You said that you would make more of an effort."

"I know, but I'm so tired."

Bulb Lofts

Bulb Lofts, a refurbished light bulb factory-Bulb, Inc. I was planning on building a larger urban apartment complex for young professionals and recent graduates with higher paying salaries. One of the apartments (#3A) was the answer to Buffy's Person Below Me Challenge.
The five level lot sits on a 2x1 lot. Works best when the back is next to another building and is surrounded by other buildings in an urban area.

Layout Level 1:
Lobby for the apartment complex and eceltic coffee shop with side yards for resting and grilling. Have no fear, the hacks are not included.

Layout Level 2:
#2A and #2B are small studio apartments. Perfect for those sims who are short on simoleans and could care less about space.

Layout Level 3:
#3A is a 2BD/2BTH apartment. See it fully decorated in this thread.

Layout Level 4:
#4A is a 3BD/2BTH apartment great for roommates or a small family. Since the complex isn't family friendly, the landlord suggests that roommates move into this apartment as opposed to a family of noisy little ones.

Layout Level 5:
#5A is the penthouse of the lofts. This 1BD/1BTH features great views of the city and a private rooftop garden.

Layout Roof:
Private rooftop patio for #5A seperated by a row of plants for the common areas with a small stereo and lounge chairs. This is the perfect place for a party at night.

Side Yard #1, features a BBQ set and dining chairs for a quick meal.

Side Yard #2 features a fountain feature and benches to relax on and enjoy the cool summer nights.

Rooftop Commons area

Luxury Bath of #5A with multiple shower heads and rain jets in the massive walk in shower.

The Drip Coffee Shop has mediocre coffee, overpriced magazines and a few spots to watch sims walk by and enjoy a poorly performed rendition of Aerial Bionic's "Will You Wright the Way"

Gets Scandalous, Part 2, 2007

Resar, fall, 2007
Ming Wuu and Benjamin Endeavor are seniors, Lainey Lorde, S'Ahmisa Warwick and Verde Herendez are juniors.

S'Ahmisa stared at the computer screen, Ming's email on one side and her unfinished term paper on the other side. She was distracted and couldn't focus. She shut down the computer and wandered outside to the rock garden.

Over at N99, the focus for the month of March is on favorite sims. I've been sharing some of my personal favorites from Apple Valley, but then wondered, which sims/families are your favorite from Apple Valley and why?

So post a comment here telling why they are your favorite. Feel free to post as often as you like!

Also, if other bloggers do the same, feel free to put your link in your comment as well so others can go and check our your blog. I can't wait since I have my own personal favorites from some of my favorite blogs.

Baby Boom Birthday
Jadhira Shazad

Recently residents helped celebrated the teen birthday of the hood's baby boom of 1995. The teens were treated to a photo shoot with Antonio Herendez, and were given one free print from the photo shoot and a free cell phone from the hood council.

After the photo shoot, the teens put on a vocal performance at the school followed by a light reception.

Happy Birthday to the teens in Apple Valley's baby boom. Here's a photo of the teens as infants.

Calculators for All

Decided to put my calculators in a stand alone excel file for a few reasons:
  • This allows simmers who don't have massive spreadsheets to enter in the necessary data for the desired information.
  • This allows for easy intergration into simmers' databases.
  • To share calculators that I no longer use, but others might find useful.
What is included in the calculator worksheet?

  • Aspiration Calculator: Input personality data and thie calculator gives you an aspiration that is well suited for your sim (according to my own aspiration assigning method).
  • Pension Calculator for Owned Businesses: Now sims who retire from owned businesses can collect a pension as well. Input business rank and salary information to get the pension amount for your sim.
  • Child Support Calculator: Figure out child support for those seperated sims. Input salary information and children information to get a child support amount.
  • Spousal Support Calculator: Figure out spousal support for those seperated sims. Input salary information and relationship information to get a spousal support amount.
  • Business Tax: To determine how much business tax your businesses owe based on business value, number of employees and rank.
  • Government Assistance: Input the salary and family information to get an amount for government assistance.
  • Rental Fee (pre AL): For those without AL, input the size of the apartment and amenities to get a rental amount. Also good for those who have sims living in the basement or renting a room in a house.
