Congratulations, SimsLover  :D  I know you'll love your pets.

I did something interesting the past couple of days -- My sim household expanded to a husband and subsequent daughter, and with a total six horses things were getting kind of laggy, so I saved the household, then opened a new copy of Twinbrook and bulldozed EVERYTHING. Thereafter I added new lots, incuding those from Showtime. I even added some extras ... there're a total four restaurants for instance. I also added about 50 homes, including my current ranch and a few other households/homes I've built along the way. I've been playing this newly built town for two days with NO lag whatsoever and I love it much more than the original Twinbrook. The town seems more complete with a broader choice of venue options and I did the layout in a manner more reminiscent of a small midwestern town (city hall in the middle of the town square, surrounded on four sides by the two schools, police and fire stations, and merchant type venues). There are four types of parks situated kind of like one large park behind the schools. It's interesting to note that one of my cat-owning sim households (my singer from Showtime) was designated by the game as the pet adoption source.

One funny thing has occurred: two horses that were sold at the equestrian center decided they wanted to come back home. A few minutes ago (2nd full day after their sale) they turned up in my sims' driveway and would not go away. Two of my human sims voluntarily quit what they were doing and went to brush the two horses. I understand this is likely a glitch in the game, but talk about free will !!! It was touching to say the least.

Simslover: you'll love pets. I've had it for five or so weeks now and I honestly cannot imagine what I used to do in the game before.
mary: how cute that the horses returned, game glitch or not, and that towns REALLY nice!

Just found this post 2day and it has inspired me to make my own breeding center. I have two sims who are married and four horses, 2 Arabians, and 2 Gypsy Vanners(I find the mixed foals for these breeds cute). The Arabians are Xander and Serendipity and the Gypsy Vanners are Dancer and Westin. :D

Congratz! I <3 Gypsy Vanners!
But in My opinion Such a Magnificent Horse should not be mixed with other breeds......

Why not? Afraid of losing racial purity?

hi guys i was wondering how do you get twinbrook and how to be able to make nectar?

That's offtopic here. But I would like to answer that question if you make it a seperate topic.

Mary... I was just re-reading this post-and when you say 'two schools' do the kids/teenagers go to the same school each day?   and when you re did twinbrook, did it give you a choice of all the community buildings?
because i did the same thing with appaloosa plains, bulldozed everything, and i could only place lots, some houses, grass/bushes, and the community lots that came with pets. i was confused

Off topic, but nectar making comes with the world adventures expansion pack and Twinbrook comes with the Ambitions expansion pack.

Could anyone please tell me how to post a picture?

Well, actually SimsLover, your picture is showing up as a red X for me.
You're sure you've done everything correctly? ;)
