Forum Sims Grab Bag: A Long-Expected Update
« on: October 13, 2011, 08:28:12 AM »
Something I've been wanting to do for some time was recognize some of the Sims that our community has created. Therefore, I have selected eight memorable Sims from the Swap Shop to live together and explore their new life. A big thanks to Pam, Carl, Leto85, Schipperke, samoht04, and Alexandria_ for allowing me to use your Sims in this story.

Our Cast

Name:Mr. Payne Story:Riches Galore Created by: Schipperke








Name: Carl Ratcliff Story: N/A Created by: Carl

Audren, you've assembled a truly fascinating cast of characters here!  It's great to see all these Sims together in one story.  Can't wait to see what you have planned for them.

Tour of the Swap Shop



Welcome to the Swap Shop, home to some of our favourite Sims! Let's take a look inside.



Here's the floor plan of the Swap Shop. A little odd-looking, but it works fine for the Sims.



This is the entrance hall of the Swap Shop. It's currently empty, but it may get filled with something in the future.



Here is our kitchen/dining room. Seating for eight, even though all eight of our Sims will never be eating at the same time. Those doors lead to the three identical bathrooms, which are not pictured.



Separated by half-walls, the entertainment center has a TV, some video games, and some comfy bean bags.



The four bedrooms are identical. Two sims sleep in each room. This room belongs to Mr. Payne and Leo.

Mr. Payne: Bunk beds! Very useful for housing multiple orphans at once, you know.
Leo: Just give me my motorcycle.



Carl and Max sleep here.

Carl: I need a computer in here. I have a forum to administrate!
Max: This roommate is certainly memorable.



Europa and Diana will be residing in this room.

Europa: What? I don't get to be immortal in this story?
Diana: Maybe this time paintings won't be required.



And this is Antone and Rabbit's room.

Rabbit: Oh my gosh! I get to room with Antone! *faint*
Antone: What happened to my old hair?

Haha, I loved the roomates reactions to each other! Especcially;

Rabbit: Oh my gosh! I get to room with Antone! *faint*
Antone: What happened to my old hair?

Genius!  ;D

I wouldn't have put it past her either.  ;) Although Diana was a Gardener not a painter, her daughter was a Painter.

It was a reference to that Jade Dynasty failing because of a lost painting. (at least, I think that's why it ended)

sounds interesting will be having a look definitively, the house plans are great, since maybe you have been short on money to build it, you could try recoloring the items,might take time, but will give it a unique look ;D

Ah I get it. It was even Diana's Portrait that went missing so it is fitting.  ;) I agree with Kiko that it needs colour, maybe try mixing some personalities in the rooms?

I had intentionally designed the entertainment and kitchen area to look rather dull, but I do want to get some colour in the bedrooms. Though I'm not sure how Mr. Payne and Leo are going to agree on the wallpaper.  ;)

I know!  I know!  Give them Schipperke-patterned wallpaper!  Thanks to Gheez and Seabody, there are a couple of great schip patterns to choose from.   ;D

The First Hours

To begin this story, I decided that our roommates should get to know each other. Since Rabbit was so excited with her roommate, let's start with her.



Oh! Scarlet Dreamweaver has some competition now, it seems.



Europa and Diana instantly hit it off, too. They went from roommates to pillowmates in seconds. Watch out, Europa!



Leo and Mr. Payne took some time to just chat.

Leo: How do we know each other, again?
Mr. Payne: Shh. The forumers don't know yet.
Leo: Oh, okay.
Mr. Payne: Now, back into character, Leo.
Leo: *nod* I'm so awesome. I'm a mixed martial artist. Blah blah blah.



Carl took the chance to get tutored in writing by the master of writing (and everything else)

Carl: So, what can I learn about writing?
Max: For one, make sure you have good right-hand people. I hear there's a woman named 'Pam' that could really help you out.

Several hours later...



Diana: Peace out, Europa.
Europa: Peace out, Diana.



Mr. Payne: Cannonball!



Rabbit: Haha! Better luck next time!
Antone: Woe to me. I'm just going to walk in shame.

 
 
Max: ... and pay attention to details. Someday, people may use your guides as the #1 resource to get specific strategies. Also, make sure you...

Midday...



Mr. Payne: Hmm
Leo: If I move here, his Orphaned Bishop will get me. But if I move here, his Orphaned Queen will put my King into check. Choices, choices.
Mr. Payne: Ready to give up, Leo?
Leo: Not a chance, old guy.



Europa: Go, Tony Sim! You can do it!
Diana: Why didn't we play Simball?



Rabbit: *thinks* I can't believe he's kissing me!
Antone: *thinks* Why aren't we playing hopscotch?



Max: ... and that's how you write a good Sims guide.
Carl: Fascinating.

I think this is my all time favourite screenshot.
I love the story Audren!

I've been wandering what would happen if someone put some of our sims together. Nice job Audren.

Lol. Great stuff! It is weird seeing myself in the story but I'm glad you let him participate. If only Max really helped me start I could have saved myself 5 years of trial and error.  I'll subscribe to see what's in store for him ;)

Mr. Payne in a New Light



Carl decided to put Max's advice into good use. At the time, they did not have enough money to buy a computer, so Carl 'borrowed' one. Hey, J.K. Rowling wrote 'Philosopher's Stone' in a cafe. Carl can write 'Carl's Sims 3 Guide 1.0' in a library.



Max and Rabbit were the first people to socialize with somebody other than their roommate. If by socialize, you mean beat up with a pillow.



Antone and Leo joined Diana and Europa in their video gaming. Rabbit went outside to play hopscotch with the paparazzi. (Both Max and Carl are now celebrities.)



Mr. Payne: What's this for?
Max: Well, you're kind of old, and we're not. I just wanted to keep you around for a while.
Mr. Payne: I appreciate that, Max. How's your wife, Pippa?
Max: Who?



Max left to join Rabbit in hopscotch, leaving Mr. Payne with his gift.



Mr. Payne: Why am I sparkling?



Mr. Payne: I'm young! Amazing! Check it out, people! People?



Antone: Did something just happen?
Leo: Yeah, I feel like I should care about something.
Diana: Stop chattering and start playing!

That's Mr Payne at a younger age?!  I would never have recognized him!  Interesting how Mr Payne is now choosing to dress like Carl.  I wonder what to make of that ...

Audren, you must have been working like mad to get all this up in just a couple of days.  It's a great story, and I'm sure we'll all be watching to see what's going to happen next!
