The Coast-Spencer Family-For 3 Summer Way--Summerville

This is a public forum. In TS3, Neighborly Sims members built three (almost four) small islands that were identical except for their seasons. We added four main houses with families, to each island--seasonally appropriate. There was also a central park for each season, and a whole slew of fill-in lots. Now we're having fun recreating the essential parts of these islands, in TS4. We hope you'll join in!

The Coast-Spencer Family-For 3 Summer Way--Summerville

Postby lindawing » August 15th, 2015, 6:09 am

This family was originally created by Anika, for Summer Island, in TS3. I ended up creating the house for them, and since Anika hasn't been around for a while and I don't know if she's even playing TS4, I decided I'd recreate the family to go with the house.

Anika--if you happen to log on and see this and would rather replace the family yourself, be sure to let me know and I'll change mine out. In the meantime, here they are.



Their original story was:

Georgia and Kenny have recently become engaged and are adjusting to living together. As if moving in together does not present enough challenges, Georgia just learned that her brother, Spencer, was being sent to her with hopes that moving him to a fresh environment would help to mellow him out. Nothing seems to be working thus far, and Spencer resents his sister's engagement. Can their relationship be salvaged? Can they all learn to live together?

I had to change the story a bit, to suit TS4. The new story is:

Georgia and Kenny have recently become engaged and are adjusting to living together. As if moving in together does not present enough challenges, Georgia just learned that her brother, Spencer, was being sent to her with hopes that moving him to a fresh environment would help him develop a bit more evenly, socially. Nothing seems to be working thus far, since Spencer is actually a loner, plus he resents his sister's engagement. Can their relationship be salvaged? Can they all learn to live together?

Kenny--
TS3 Version...Young Adult, liked the color blue, PB&J sandwiches, and Indie music, was over-emotional yet had a good sense of humor, was a vegetarian, athletic, and an angler.

Image

TS4 Version...Young Adult, is an outdoor enthusiast and an angling ace, is a foodie, active, and loves the outdoors.

The first post is now filled in and the family is there. Now to try to make a similar house. There are some things that simply won't be available. For one thing, Spencer is no longer an Equestrian. He is, instead, a loner and a collector. Hmmm...

Thanks, Melody! I worked SO hard on Kenny! I would like to have been able to change his face to a chunkier, more square version, but no matter what I did, I couldn't quite get him the way I wanted him. I was pleased that I was able to get that close, anyway. Spencer was difficult, too, with his originally-VERY-weak chin. If you view the TS4 version from the side, you can see that feature better. Georgia was fairly easy, except for the hair. In the end, I was pretty pleased with them all, and I think I was able to round out their traits and personalities fairly well, too. They should be fun to play! :uhhuh: :joy:

Their home is well on the way. I'm hoping to finish it tomorrow.

I have that problem. Getting the features just right. What happens with me is, I get them to a certain point and like that so much, I go with it, rather than trying to get them how they actually looked in Sims 3. :evillaugh:
