Twisted Valley--Sims

Neighborly Sims created Twisted Valley in 2008, to compete in the exhibition held by Twisted Sims (which was Carrie's site at the time). We created this entire neighborhood, with lots, Sims, and special content. It's a great neighborhood, and we hope you TS2 players will enjoy it this time around, too. This is a public forum.

Twisted Valley--Sims

Postby lindawing » April 8th, 2014, 5:41 am

If you don't want to download the Sims we created, separately, they can be downloaded as Characters, in the neighborhood download topic, or the whole neighborhood can be downloaded from there, with all the Sims in the Bin already.

Here are pictures of a few of the special Sims we created. Can you guess where these Sims live or work?

The Sims that will be posted here all come on tiny lots which can be installed. Then you just have to move the Sims off the lots, into your Bin, and then they can be moved into the appropriate lots in Twisted Valley.

Several of the Sims have special clothing created by Lisa (ukpoppyberry). If you use the installer files here, and don't want to use the CC, just uncheck that line before you install the file. Otherwise, if you have already downloaded the special clothing .package files from the neighborhood download page, you can do the same. If you have chosen to install all your Sims this way and you want to include the special clothing, just install the entire files, and you'll get everything put into your Downloads folder the way they should be.

Will someone adopt any of these kids? There's an orphanage in town where they have been sent, but they haven't yet reached their destination. Will they get there, or will someone take them in first? Will Marvin find his real parents, or will someone else adopt him? Is there a family for Jasmyn? Will Mehrissa be able to keep on delivering newspapers?

Andy Copp has a bit of a problem. He's been on the local police force for some time (though he's never really gotten to know anyone in town very well). Unfortunately, though he's officially the SWAT Team Leader, Andy would actually like to become a Criminal Mastermind! Of course, the way his mind works DOES make him better at CATCHING criminals. Will Andy make the right decisions in his life from now on? If so, what will those decisions be?

Chandler-ParkerFamily.jpg (85.63 KiB) Viewed 2358 times

Sara Chandler and Tom Parker have two children (twins)--Greg and Lena Chandler. At least that's what everyone except Sara thinks! In their senior year of high school, Sara got pregnant. Afraid that the father--Tom--would abandon her, she never told him (or her parents). Before starting to show, Sara went to another town, taking a temporary job until her baby (Marvin) was born. Sara still didn't know if Tom would accept their child. When Marvin was a couple of months old, Sara returned to Twisted Valley--giving Marvin up for adoption. After her return, Sara and Tom resumed their former relationship. Eventually the twins were born. Noticing Sara's occasional sadness, Tom is contemplating marrying her. Little does he know the sadness is because she wants her "baby" back.

Dollar Acob has a secret. It's in his the way he dresses. Perhaps he should write a book about this strange personality of his (he even likes stinky things!). Methinks he has somewhat of a "history!" (HINT)

FireFighter.jpg (27.23 KiB) Viewed 2358 times

This young lady has worked her way up to Junior Officer in the local military services. This has given her the skills to volunteer to help put out blazing houses in town--thus earning the nickname "Fire." Even with all these upright, moral activities in her life, Fire has a secret. Like Andy Copp (though she doesn't know him), she has dreams of becoming a Criminal Mastermind. Perhaps this valley is just a bit TOO twisted! Either the government needs to hire some police officers and some firemen with more appropriate aspirations, or Fire and Andy need to get some counseling and change their visions for life in general!

Samantha Waters loves the water. She loves fishing, swimming, boating, and just looking at the water. She has always dreamed about just spending time on her own beach, building sandcastles, and lying in the sun getting a tan. She also would love to own the Twisted Valley Marina.

Six is Twisted Valley's High School Principal. During the day she's a prim and proper lady who keeps tabs on the local students. She's a family Sim, but...with her hair down, she also has a bit of an alterego. Can you guess the origins of her first name?

These Sims were created by Cindy (porkypine), who was a member of NS at the time we made this neighborhood. She was still creating at least in 2013, HERE, at MTS. You can find the neighborhoods (just the SC4 files--which can be downloaded at the bottom of the page) I created at her request, for her Native Sims project, HERE.

The Russe Family
Kirk and Amber Russe have a little money and a small supply of inherited furniture, with which they can move into a small starter. They've actually spotted one at 450 W. State Route 125, that might suit them very well, and it only costs $11,517. What a deal! Of course, they might find something better, but right now, that little house is looking mighty good!

A Very Special Twisted Valley Family

Postby lindawing » April 15th, 2014, 9:13 am

The Twisted Sims staff created several contests for the exhibition. One of the ones I entered was recreating the Ogglebottoms. We were given the files to begin with. The poor family had really been dunked in the ugly bucket, I can tell you! We had to give them plastic surgery (showing the progress of the work with the built-in sliders), and they had to accomplish several things. I was thinking we had to build their house, but from the comments and pictures here, I think I just renovated what they came with...not sure about that part, though...I've slept since then. ;-)

The family is downloadable at the end. ;-)

The Ogglebottom family were died-in-the-wool Whos from Whoville, and they had always liked it that way. They were a happy family--very comfortable with their looks. After all...everyone else in Whoville looked pretty much like them!

There WERE seven in the family: Grandpa Horace Ogglebottom, Grandma Olga, Hubert (Horace and Olga's son), Fifi (Hubert's wife), Twyla (the teenage dancing daughter), Thelma (the studious middle child), and Hueybob (an adorable, super-smart toddler). In Whoville, Grandma and Grandpa lived in a separate home from Hubert and his young family, and they were idylically happy in their intertwined lives. However, one day, the happy balance this family had achieved, was mightily threatened by Hubert's employers.

Long story short--Hubert was transferred to Twisted Valley. He and his family all had to undergo cosmetic surgery to fit in. Here they are now, in all of their new glory), having succeeded greatly in their move from one culture to another. Not only that, if you count carefully, you'll see that the family now has EIGHT members. Baby Larissa was born shortly before this contest was over. :joy:

NOTE: When you click on a picture it will come up larger, but you need to click on the big X at the bottom of that picture to get the full size, which you will want to do, to see all the amazing plastic surgery results. :evillaugh:

After looking at these pictures, I see that I missed at least two lots here, somehow. I have no idea where the files are for those, but I can save them in my current game and upload them. I'll do that soon.
