I ❤️simulation games and one of my all time favorites is The Sims 2. I have been playing The Sims games since 2001. My preferred neighborhood is always Pleasantview and I add Bluewater Village and Strangetown as my subhoods. In February of 2016 I built a "medievalized" Pleasantview and called it the Kingdom of Simswood. 😊 Honestly, you will find me building more often than actually playing the game. I found these pictures that I had posted to a forum called Plumbob Keep years ago and I figured I would share them.
I have always enjoyed playing Sims 2, but it is still a very unstable game for me to play. I 'mod' the fire out of it and my custom content folder for my game is almost always over 9G, which often results in a BFBVFS - Big Fiery Ball Visible From Space. Every time my son walks in and sees me in build mode he walks away saying "Mom, you are just going to kill your game. Why do you bother?" 🤣 And I do.
This year has been quite the year for most of us. We had not one trick-or-treater on our streets this year! Our streets remained dark, and my area is usually very thriving and decorated. Our decision to not pass out candy this year was spot on. So, we bought pizza and breadsticks for dinner, made Halloween Snicker Doodle cookies, played sticky spider darts, put together some Halloween crafts, and GAMED! Tonight was a night for some of our games to participate in Halloween events, and it was quite fun. I hope everyone had a spooky Halloween night! 🎃
