Some more scary Eva DuPont faces.

Typical facial expression during a Sim Fu match.


Preparing for Sim Fu practice


Just casually standing around, trying to scare off all other Sim Fu practitioners


I love it when they start laughing at the mummy after it has been defeated.

Hilarious expressions, Malteser! :)

I just started a new game in Naga's Sunset Valley 2.1, and got the ancient burial ground challenge.  Not really weird on it's own, but it had a ghost type that I've never seen before:



Was that poor, unfortunate sim on the left killed by a meteor?  I've never had a meteor strike in my game, so I've never seen one.

Yep, that's a meteor ghost. I know what you mean about not getting any meteor showers, I only just recently got one myself. Followed twenty minutes later by a second one. To the same Sim. I think poor Hannah is traumatised...

Either that, or she thinks she's the star in the remake of the movie "Armageddon." 

I did have a huge meteor fall in one of my games (I got a message that one had landed and that I should hurry and collect it), but it hit out in the middle of nowhere and there wasn't anything or anyone around it, so I don't think it was the same type of event.

No, that's an event you get while Stagazing with the telescope. You can get large or gigantic meteors from it. Still very cool.  :D

Now that I've mentioned Hannah's meteor strikes I better post some pics, eh? The first one snuck up on me as she was leaving the Science Lab so I didn't get any screenshots, but the second one happened as she was finishing a vaccination clinic at the park. There were loads of people around for that, so I had charred townies running around for weeks. The funny thing was that none of the Sims became Singed straight away, they just all stood on one leg, cringing, until their clothes burnt off one by one. It was kind of funny.  :)





There. Now it's art!
The meteor itself was collected by Hannah later in the day and is now proudly displayed in her living room. She got a wish for a tattoo, so I sent her to get one of a moon to commemorate the event.



On an unrelated note, local mixologist Tim Burre was tragically devoured by GIANT FLYING SPACE PIRANHAS.

Very cool indeed, especially for a sim just starting out (which the first one was).  Those big rocks are worth a great deal.  :D



Hannah lives in Twinbrook.  Even if I didn't recognize the town (which I didn't at first), you can spot Amy Bull's loud and obnoxious outfit from deep orbit.  I'm guessing that's how the meteor aimed itself.  :P

It would seem that the giant flying space piranha rode the meteor in.  Commuting is good for the environment.  But is it good for sims?  In this case, not so much.

@Esther:


The piranha lives in the wall-mounted aquarium opposite the bar. I just zoomed riiiight in and fiddled with the camera until I got the right shot.

Hannah lives in Twinbrook.  Even if I didn't recognize the town (which I didn't at first), you can spot Amy Bull's loud and obnoxious outfit from deep orbit.  I'm guessing that's how the meteor aimed itself.  :P

Excellent theory Hosfac! I'm forced to agree that these suspicious events aren't unrelated at all. Obviously Amy Bull is an alien in league with the Giant Flying Space Piranhas, sent to mark out areas of especially dense population for destruction (hence why she turned up at the crowded vaccination clinic). She also has a colleague acting as an additional marker. See how this "tourist" mimics Bull's movements and dress style!




Twinbrook is in grave danger! The suspiciously frequent meteor showers and overly-sized carnivorous fish are just the first step in eradicating opposition to the master plan! In less than fifty years, this lush swamp will be a barren desert, a strange town overrun with mad scientists and alien pollination technicians! It all makes sense!

Tourist my eye.  She's obviously an alien pollination technician, just like Amy Bull.  No human being of even marginal taste in clothing would dress like that.

I find it funny how everyone looks up and points, but nobody runs for cover.  They clearly see it coming.  All I know is if I see something headed my way from the sky, traveling at over 200km/h, I'm going to step of the way.

Tell me about it. One of my games, Cornelia Goth was over, saw the meteor and I had long gotten my sims out of the way, but she just stood and pointed, caught on fire and was dead before I could get my sim back over to put her out.  >:( I was screaming "Run!!" She didn't listen. *sigh*

I guess if there's going to be an apocalypse, you might as well have a good seat for it.

Got that right  :D. I was hoping at least someone would get the Strangetown reference. The scary thing though is that in Stangetown (set 50 years after Twinbrook, remember), the only Twinbrook townies to be found there are the Curious/Wheloff descendants, and they all seem pretty pally with the aliens (married to aliens, fathered by aliens, pregnant with alien spawn etc). What did the aliens do to the rest of the town?  :o

And yeah, this whole theory is now gospel truth to me. The next person who asks about what happened between Sims 3 and Sims 2 will be educated about the Giant Flying Space Piranhas.  ;D

I thought about putting this in the technical section, but actually it was just more weird and the simple fix is to use "resetsim" and it was fine, but when I started my dynasty and this happened and it never had before, I just thought it was plain funny, lol.


Is it true that cannibals don't eat clowns because they taste funny?

Reminds me of a scene from the movie Ghostbusters.

Awesome pics Salty! I never played Sims 1 or 2 so I didn't get it. Oh well, hopefully if Sims 4 comes out, they will put something of 3 in it so I'll get the jokes!!  ;D

My homeless Sims are having a bit of trouble in the romance department :P
Pic 1 :Megan meets Don Lothario. Apparently hes not into smelly women.
Pic 2: Ted gets the brush off from his girlfriend
Pic 3: Look how tiny the watermelon is but she looks happy with it.
Pic 4: Megans attempt at a kiss fails. Baby daddy yes - PDA no
Pic 5: Megans daughter, Michelle. The family always sets her near the fire since she has no crib.
