And just because, I'm going to post the last of my SimTopi founder makeovers, and that would be for the Markelly family.
Denise (Jasmine and Cecilia's mom) is the outgoing girl on our left, and Lydia (Gabriel's mother) is the shy one on the right.
Again, playing around with different skintones, these by Aquilegia.
( some babble about the town and 3 more pics )
There's no big story here and none of this is integral to the plotline of Gen 3. At this point, I don't even think I had worked out what I was going to gen 3 yet. I just thought it might be fun to post these. Please forgive the occasional plumbBob.
So without further ado, I present to you...
( +58 more pics, a lot of them of Jasmine, Gabe and Cecilia as toddlers :D )
BTW, I was looking at my site stats last night and was pleasantly surprised to see that my hosting comes with unlimited bandwidth. So that's why I'll be posting 600x450 size pics from now on. I don't know if this will make a huge difference to the aesthetic of the story, or if it will take that much longer to download. But let me know if the larger pics are an issue.
Thank you for reading!
( +3 pics of Gabriel and more babble... )
Anyway, this was sort of a nothing post so here's one for Team Gabriel. :D
Lydia: Can you say 'mama', Gabriel?

Denise was happy to see her sister at the door even if it was 4 in the morning. She was surprised to see her so pregnant.

Just a few pics of the houses I’ve built for the first gen Marlens and Markellys. They aren’t up for upload because I built them with the sims living on the lot and they’re really customized for my Sims anyway.
Moar pics this-a-way….
Craig and Elf bumped into eachother briefly at the Upper Oliver Village. She had just met up with an old friend for lunch and Clive just happened to be there. He was picking up something to wear for his sister's graduation.
Seeing her again reminded Clive that he is still in love with her, even though Elf had moved on and felt nothing for him. Politely, he asked about her family and she did the same, though he had to tell her that he was still single.
After their brief interaction, Elf made the awkward but polite invitation to "do lunch sometime". Something Clive knew would probably never happen. The two parted ways.

I broke my own rule about custom content and finally downloaded some, mostly from ModtheSims2. I’ve been playing around with different default skins and eyes and hair styles in Body Shop all weekend. I’ve concluded that my game style will always still be Maxis-match predominantly, but I really like the way the combination of these particular CC elements look in my game.
Lydia’s Hair by Nouk from MTS2
Eyes by Shady from MTS2 (Natural Beauty eyes… MTS2 is a bit borked lately so you can’t download her defaults, however I made my own as well as made them townie friendly and geneticized for game consistency)*
Denise’s Lipstick by Bruno
Lydia’s lipgloss by Dragonmandy
The result: I don’t think these CCs compromised the overall look of the game and the enhancements are subtle but very pretty I think. I doubt I will be using any custom skins though… I’ve experimented in Body Shop and the only ones I were remotely interested in made my characters look strange.**
(This post has been editted to show better pics. The original ingame screenshots are here and here)
*I switched my eye defaults to Shady’s Sparkling eyes (shown in the new pics), and I think they suit my Sims much better.
** I’ve been using Leh’s Maxis-Match Skin defaults. I’m very happy with them.
Continued from Part 1
When Brandon wasn’t working at his office, he spent at the businesses he owned. His businesses were somewhat successful and he met a lot of people. One day he met Audrey White, a much younger up-and-coming artist at his gallery one night and briefly considered pursuing her for a brief romance to rebuild his own damaged ego.

It starts with Brandon Markelly, a fortune Sim and his identical twin daughters, Lydia and Denise. When they moved to SimTopi, Brandon was a single father and hopeful businessman. He lost his wife years before to a rare disease so he was determined to be a good father to his twins.( Read the rest of this entry » )
