31  Simmers' Paradise / Sims Stories / Eden's Dream on: February 02, 2008, 07:48:12 pm
Hi, this is life of Eden Poorly and her family. Originally it was started as part of a poverty challenge but they took on a life of their own:happy8:

The Beginning.......
Eden Poorly grew up in the backwoods of Walnut Cove.  She longed to be part of a big family and be accepted for who she was. Her parents loved her but her father had always wanted a boy and her mother didn't show affection easily. She spent alot of time by herself growing up but she craved being popular and having lots of friends.  When she was finally a grown woman and ready to strike out on her own, her mother revealed that Eden's grandfather had left her plot of land on the edge of Silver Vine Valley.  Her mother had never told her father about the land but she gave the deed to Eden to give her a chance at a happy life.

    Eden was thrilled  to find out about the land and set off to Silver Vine Valley.  She fell in love with the land as soon as she saw it-pretty mountains and hills by a lake.  There was nothing but land but she knew she could create a wonderful life here and she wasn't afraid of hard work. Thanks to her dad she loved to fish and could build anything she imagined.  It wasn't going to be easy but her dream was to build a home and have the family and friends she had always dreamed about when she was a young girl.
She never wanted to be lonely again....

lol some of those are priceless and some look very painful!

Here's just a couple of mine-more expressions than anything
In this one, it looks like the mom is thinking is this baby ever going to go to get to sleep...that was after being up all night with her new twins

And this one was the dad after having several new babies realizing just how many diapers he was going to have to change

Great pictures everyone!  Those baby dolls are really something. My grandmother collected baby dolls for years and would have loved those too. We always had to buy her the latest baby doll even when she into her 70's.  FourTSeven, Im sure your thread will be real popular if you start it Smiley. I have my own and even though people don't always say alot I really enjoy it (and lol besides I take way too many pictures of my families-it gets almost as addictive as playing them).

Here's a couple of my favorite late additions-this is Lauren, her brother Thomas and little baby sister Amy. I got a new little bed and Lauren kept coming over to Amy the whole time she was in it-never had that happen in my game before

And this is my newest twins, Kyle and Kaylynn (they are cousins to Lauren, Thomas and Amy)

Ann, the orginal hair on the momI think is a free Peggy hair called Simple Hair (I know the mesh was free) and this was recolor from TSR by nikisatez05.  I love the streaks in it.

Oops I hit enter too soon--if you meant the blonde baby hair instead-it was from a wonderful skin by Recoradyn

Adorable pictures everyone!! You all have such beautiful kids! Lol Auntiejokisses, you never know what the kids are going to do sometimes-love the cat dish!

anikolee, so sorry to hear about your game. A couple weeks ago, I switched from my old computer to a new one with vista and my game was a mess for awhile too so I can totally relate.

I've been building up my neighborhood again so I've got caught up in a couple more families.
This is Sherry and her little girl Jayna

And this is Lexie-she lives with her parents (Alicen and Gray) on a little farmhouse at the edge of town.  She's a little quirky but I really like her

Thanks so much Pierre!

mari-artika, I'll see if I can find where that came from-in the back of my mind I keep thinking its a HopeB creation and that I got it off of simsquirts but Im not sure and when I looked on the back files where simsquirts is now I didn't see them. I'll keep looking though

aprilcrow and Holly, great pictures!!

Nyane (sorry didn't see Raven had come on while I was typing lol), I just followed what Raven and Lewis B had put on about using the poses and then feeding the baby.

freewill, the way I do mine is that I have the insimenator and the children can stay at home hack. In cas, I make my kids and then temporarily grow them up-that way they can be either related or unrelated. Then I have them grow to adults just to get them past cas.  Then in game I use the insimenator and make them all toddlers again. As long as you have the children stay at home hack in the social worker won't come until you want her too. You can then either move in an adult or keep one of the ones as an adult to run the orphahage.  If you want a baby in the orphanage though then the only way, I've been able to do it is to have a adult caretaker have one and then be the ones that dies later so the baby is adopted out with the toddlers later.  It can be fun to experiment too and see what combinations of babies the adult caretakers have too The whole time you have them the kids develop relationships, friendships, and skills.
     So then when they are adopted by the families you want then they take the friendships, skills they learned with them. So if they learned to walk and talk at the orphange or developed high creativity or logic skills that will stay with them when they go too. It's a way your tots  can already have a whole bunch of best friends before they even get to school and it helps a bunch on romantic relationships later too if you want them to grow up to have a relationship later.  They won't keep any family relationship as far as how they are related in the orphanage once they are adopted. If you have any kids grow up in the orphanage, they will keep all family relationships until one of them is adopted by a new family then the family relationship will change and stay only with the new family but they will keep the friendships unless you adopt kids to the same family together then they will be related. When you are ready to adopt the kids to other famlies, then at least in mine I make sure there is no adult left then when at least one of the kids needs drops to low then you get a warning and if you don't fix then the social worker will come. I just mark down what order the kids are taken in and its always the last taken is the first adopted. So if I want say little susie to go to this paticular family and she was the last taken then she will be the first up for adoption and so on. Then throughout the neighborhood, I can choose the families that will adopt and I have them adopt in the opposite order that the kids were taken.
     Also whatever clothes they are taken is also the clothes they are adopted in too. so you can already have them dressed in all your favorite outfits, hair picked out and so on and then when the family adopts they get what they want. I still do the surprise ones too but I usually have at least part of mine as ones I make too.  Lol it satisifes the want to have some pretty adoptions, making up lots of sims for fun and I love how the relationships work later in the game. It holds some surprises too-can make uni really fun when they all meet up later too.  I have a lot of childhood sweethearts that way. I do the same thing too when I want a family where its a teenager raising brother and sisters. I start them as adults and then make them younger with the insimenator. Most of those things I learned by reading the tips here and some trial and error myself.  Anyway that's just how I do it I think everyone has their own way but that's what works best for me. Hope that helps

Kaimana, your little Katana is so pretty

Clcny, that is so cute-I would download it too-very pretty

Kadi, those kiddos are so cute!

Pierre thanks so much and no secret just my favorite part of the game is the little kids lol

Invader, its like Nyane said about the phone call. The adoption part is one of my favorite parts of the game. I used to work in the area and two of my best friends are adoptive parents so I thought it was fun to do.
  There are all kinds of tricks though to getting what you want.   If you do it straight up, no hacks then you have to wait 24 hours to get your kid (they usually deliver them around 10 am).  Since its the game choice, you might get pretty, ugly, any sex and any skin tone-that  can be part of the fun though if you like the random. I do mine both ways sometimes just what I get and sometmes I use the hacks to have more control over it.
   I do use the hack that is adoption the same day so you don't have to wait. I do have a toddler house in mine so I don't have a social worker hack cause at some point I want her come so she came take them and then people throughout my neighborhood can adopt them. I like that part cause then you can choose who gets who.  Usually they are adopted in the opposite order that they are removed. So last taken is  first adopted.  I've done so many adoptions now too that I can kind of work out what influences or determines some of the outcomes now.  I also have the hack that lets children stay at home alone which is very important for my orphanages/foster homes.
    Anyway there are all kinds of tricks to it-also usually if you adopt more than one almost always it goes one sex then changes to the next so like boy then girl then boy again. If you don't like the one your get, then don't save it after and go back out to your neighborhood and go back in. The game will keep regenerating a new child.  It just depends on how you like to play it.  Adoptionsa re one of my favorites.  I have mine down now to to what satisfies me and what I have the most fun with plus it bulids relationships early with kids from all the other families . Also a married couple will adopt the child together but if a couple isjust living together the child is only adopted by the one that calls.  So just cause you get a child in the house does not mean that it will be both parents the same as if it is a child born in the family.
   Most of the hacks I got I got from here on the mods area and even with them I still do lots of surprise me adoptions.  I just think they are fun and can be something fun to play with--especially since the kids are my favorite.  It also adds  a random or surprise factor that affects the relationships all around especially since the toddlers or kids take any skills or friendships they develop elsewhere with them to the new home.  You can really have a lot of fun with changes and how it ripples throughout your whole neighborhod.
