Good luck! I also practicing when I don't know about something and it'd be more exciting to finding that and experience that by myself instead asking people


Thanks, Eldridge!

I actually have gotten a lot of information from this forum and Carl's Sims Guide, so in a way, I have had help from questions other people have asked. :)

I'm not sure exactly how to write a Sim story, so I have been reading the others posted here. I am looking forward to starting because although I don't do much of it, I do like to write occasionally.

Believe it or not, I also horrible with stories especially in writing first but you'll get used to it. I learn a lot when reading people stories so I get new things for my own vocabulary and people here are nice and kind, they didn’t even bother about petty things :P

Just become yourself and enjoying your writing process that's all you need and everyone has their own style, I hear that from someone too! I'll be reading yours when the time is come. I always loved to see new story here! Good luck!

What happened? Does something happened with your save? So sorry to hear that!



Case Ten completed now Phase 08. I might want to save the reading part for later, I have a little time!

Eldridge - nothing's wrong. I like to start a new save once in a while as part of the challenge. Having 9 kids also caused a bit of lag.

Sorry to heard that, Jamie :( What kind of mod issues that you encounter? I haven't got Into the Future yet but I also curious about that! Would you mind to tell me?

It doesn't have anything to do with Into the Future because I was having the same issues before, but I have a few of Twallan's mods installed. I'm pretty sure it's Relativity giving me the trouble of my game freezing very often. I'm currently talking to somebody from the forums over on the NRaas site and I think it has to do with the babies being born in inactive households. It's really frustrating because I really don't want to play without Relativity or Story Progression. They both make the game 100 times more fun.

What I am doing is pretty boring honestly, I'm just trying to get 1 sim, dog, cat, and horse and trying to give them all as many mastered skills as possible. I just started it so im still making my sims, this part usauly takes hours... i'm kinda a perfectionist.

Hmm, I agree the charms of old Sims 3 game still not coming back.

You should consider to try the challenges or projects, it's pretty fun and if you love telling stories you can create them and share it here :)



Making stories always make me feels exhausted because I try to become the character that I create and that was tiring. Especially when feel like they feel, thinking like they thinking. Of course that I must searching information around, that’s pretty much playing out with my emotion.

Oh, I never realized that I spread spoiler of my story around the forum, lol.

I try to relax around and watched over Bing Bang Theory that feature Sheldon Cooper cross dressing ::)

I think that while I wait for a new patch to fix all of these ITF issues, I'm going to get rid of my mods and start up a new file. My goal is to supermax all skills, get all degrees, reach visa level 3 in all destinations, get to the top of all careers with a single sim! And if anyone can think of other completion type things I could try I'd really appreciate the suggestions. This will take a long time but I've got a lot of time to fill over Christmas break.  :D

Wow, that's such a goal Jamie. Sounds tough to me but it must have a plenty of fun for you to discover. How about consider to play around with life state as well. Discovering and playing with any kind of life-state must be fun too with your single Sim, i.e you can max Witch power or Werewolf power when you satisfied, wrecking havoc by doing mischievous Fairy Trick or Genie Power and discovered all of their secret after that done your Sim can always become human.

Thanks for the advice :D I actually am really excited to start writing stories but i didn't know this site had it at first. That's ok though, so anyways thanks again!!

You're welcome! I'd love to reading yours when the time is come. Good luck!



I have a plan to make the next Phase is the last, and I'm thinking about implementing something in the next phase as well but how do I make 25 pictures limit to be fit for all?

Wow that was fast...! Hope to see the Chant back as soon as possible, Nettlejuice!



I'd love to read more but with the time that I had I must finish my deadline before Christmas come! So, it's time to enter the Sims World as the Player!

Hey, don't worry about it! Reading stories and speed-running families is fun too! :) I've been speed running through a lifestate's dynasty myself and with the holidays and my new job coming up and about I've hardly had time for reading OTHER'S stories, let alone writing on my own!

As for what my current project is: get a chapter out today for my story before my life becomes too hectic to do anything else!

@NJ & Livvie: I believe we're in the same boat here. Real life things what really matter than Simming right now. Well, we don’t want to ruin our life because our loved for Sims aren’t we?

At least that I still can read stories even as a Silent Reader ::)

Well, I look forward for Livvie creation. I can’t wait to found out what’s in the store ;)

Haha, at least that you still have fun in that high speed.

I probably will never do speed running as I often missing something, I wouldn't want something nasty happen. That was awesome for some people who could do that as I'm more into story-oriented than gaming alone ;D

I also can't wait to see Livvie story as well.



I'm currently listening soundtrack of The Soloist, while working on Phase 08 that is the last phase of Mortimer and Malcolm childhood stories. So far I'm enjoyed to write another part that added but not focus into the main part. I also have plan to fast forward Harry progress into a child state as possible, I’ll not regret if Holly passed away as her story will live on through someone. As I love to see Aric as teenager and other sibling and Patrick! So, Malcolm could pinch his cheek like Livvie wants to :P

I just have to share... I finally made it to level 3 visa in Shang Shimla. It was nearly all over at 99% though as my game wasn't saving and making 'bad' files all the time, and then when I finally got it to save the adventure board had a glitch and wasn't giving me any adventures!!!
Luckily there was a thread on the forum where Pam gave some amazing advice (as usual  :D) so I went home, travelled back and once I had slept a night at base camp the board reset itself!
So... next part of my project... off to France  :P

I just had heir four in my 4x4 born and aged up to teen, then I got a bit enthusiastic with the try for baby interaction :) I love when my sims have lager families - more crazyness!

Right now I feel great about my goal of moving them to a new town before the new year.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Ugh, I think that you're having high endurance from insanity. I hate having larger family in Sims that drives me insane ::)
Good luck about your goal and Merry Christmas!



Childhood Story Last Phase is almost done. I just need some screenshots to complete Morty and Malcolm story that involved Bunch and Alvi, but I think VJ and Lisa would make appearance in Holly’s background story though and I need some screenshots taken from current Dynasty progress which I haven’t touch it all and I’m still in Week 11 and write some story of it ::)

I've got a few goals running. I'm doing an immortal dynasty and a random town jump on the side. Both stories are being posted here. I'm also attempting to get Hobart's Hideaway up to a 5 star resort with one sim. My current building project is recreating some resorts in Walt Disney World. I've decided to start tricky with the Wilderness Lodge. If I finish them and they look good, I might share them here.

Good luck with both of the project, bubbles!  I can't wait to see your creation!



I just finished Phase 08 and it end ups with 4029 words. I don’t have any problem writing as fast as possible because I never running out of idea, if I'm not stressed out. The problem leads to the screenshots as always. It has special greeting though and include teasers and hints for what'd coming next into the story. After published I might spend my time to read others before I leave this place for several days :)
