I found my copy of the Sims tonight and I haven't played it in years, so I thought I'd make sims of some of us and force us into a house. Joyous day! Yes, I was really bored.

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph...ms/sims0001.png
Meet the Fockers Josies, named after the URL of the old Geocities DE. Kurt is DP, Jaser (AKA J.J.) is CF. Ev is a hippiegoth or something. Note GG's killer 'fro.

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph...ms/sims0002.png
See the crappy little house in the bottom-right? It's all ours. We're po'.

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph...ms/sims0003.png
And now, the moment of truth! Join our heroes as they... stand around doing nothing. Left to right: DP, KL, Zai, Ev, me, Chanman, and CF, with GG tenatively observing their new dwelling, which is in need of furnishing.

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph...ms/sims0004.png
...I don't have enough money to make this place livable for eight people. D:

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph...ms/sims0005.png
Screw this. Rosebud cheat, gogogo!

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph...ms/sims0006.png
YEAH BABY. I moved us into the mansion that sits atop the hill and overlooks the inferior families. (...Well, there's only two other families, but who cares. We rock either way.)

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph...ms/sims0007.png
Biggest default house in the game. I could have made one from scratch, but I didn't feel like it, and this one is big enough anyway. Furnishing ahoy!

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph...ms/sims0008.png
First floor, with (mostly) the best stuff available. I remembered to put fire alarms in rooms with fireplaces/ovens/other flammable things. >_>

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph...ms/sims0009.png
Second floor. The bedrooms look like barracks or something. There's a pinball machine and stereo on the balcony 'cause we're crazy like that. Also, a shrine to cacti. I don't know why. Didn't know what else to do with that room.

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph...ms/sims0010.png
GG and Chanman inspect the computers. GG is also apparently stuck in the 70's.

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph...ms/sims0011.png
Oh no the bus is here! Zai got on it on his own but I had to force KL to go to school, since all he wanted to do was meditate with Ev in the Cactus Shrine. Meanwhile, GG hacks into the Internet with Chanman or something and Kurt has snazzy red socks.

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph...ms/sims0012.png
JJ and Ev watch David the Gnome while discussing tennis?

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph...ms/sims0013.png
...How did this one get in here I don't even

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph...ms/sims0014.png
Chanman and GG are filthy peace-loving hippies.

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph...ms/sims0015.png
There's a pinball machine on the goddamn balcony and I'd rather paint? Sim-me had better stop being an artsy lamer or I'll have to drown him in the pool.

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph...ms/sims0016.png
Our neighbors, Bella and Mortimer Goth (lawl), make the arduous journey uphill to welcome us to the neighborhood. Ev expresses her hatred of the White House. GG is funky.

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph...ms/sims0017.png
Oh hey someone got a skill poi-- Wait, what? Since when do I have any artistic talent whatsoever? Did we buy a house in Bizarro World?!

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph...ms/sims0018.png
Kurt, weirded out by his White House-loathing, bizarro roommates, plays Maple Story.

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph...ms/sims0019.png
JJ shows off his pink speedo? Wtf it's like Forum Nerds Gone Wild in here.

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph...ms/sims0020.png
Cool, we've got some talented people h-- Whaaa? I can't even make real art. You can take your squares and shove 'em. I'm having myself killed in a kitchen fire as soon as I can.
...Damn, forgot about the fire alarm.

I got bored around this point so I saved and quit. >_> More tomorrow. Should I get jobs for anyone or just leave free will on and let them do whatever they want? They'd be easier to keep track of if some of them had jobs but some zany adventures could result from the second option. And if I don't interfere then Zai and KL could end up going to military school. D: THIS GAME IS COMPLICATED

Kid Pokemon - December 30, 2007 06:51 AM (GMT)
Seems to me like someone is missing... *ish angry*

Chaotic Fear - December 30, 2007 06:59 AM (GMT)
DP is doing it in The Sims 2. ...KL is a dog.

Sorry, KP. Only 8 spaces for family members.

Phyzium - December 30, 2007 07:01 AM (GMT)
I left out a lot of people. I could make a second family with the people I missed. They can visit one another and have parties and use each other's bathrooms. It'll be fun!

Kid Pokemon - December 30, 2007 07:14 AM (GMT)
I just wanna belong! user posted image

Nah, it's okay. I understand, guys. I played this game once... too confusing to me...

GG13 - December 30, 2007 04:40 PM (GMT)
hot damn. i wanna play the sims now. ><


Funky fresh, bro. I'm a 90's kid who digs 80's culture, but i was almost an 80's kid, so i suppose this is me had I been born when my parents wanted.

Omni - January 17, 2008 04:13 AM (GMT)
who the hell are half the people in this anyways??

Phyzium - January 29, 2008 05:18 AM (GMT)
Omni's getting Alzheimer's already.

Anyway. This didn't last long. Something screwed up when I tried to install some expansion packs and I lost the Josie family. But despair not, for I have in my possession something far superior!

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph.../sims2_0001.png
Sims 2. Oh yeah. Yarr harr fiddle-dee-dee, bein' a pirate is all right with me, etc. I figure this time I'll let you d00ds decide what you want your character to be like, instead of me doing whatever I want.

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph.../sims2_0002.png
So here's the family-making screen thing. Pick your skin tone, gender, and age. You can be a toddler, child, teenager, adult, or elder. Teenagers can go to college, and if we end up with any, I'll chronicle their crazy drunken frat adventures too. Also you can be fat too I guess. Fun fact: the dudes look pregnant if you make them fat. I don't know wtf is up with that.

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph.../sims2_0003.png
Choose a hair style/color. There's more than what's listed here, I didn't want to take screenshots of every page so there. You can wear hats too, and you can basically change all this crap later (sans facial features/skin color), so don't worry if you're not satisfied with what you end up looking like.

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph.../sims2_0004.png
Eye color too. The other options on the left are for changing your facial features. I like making hideously ugly sims, having them make babehs, and seeing how long it takes to breed the ugly out. What does this say about me?

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph.../sims2_0005.png
Yes, dudes can wear makeup. I don't know what the developers were on when they made this game but I kinda want some.

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph.../sims2_0006.png
...And if you seek something different, you can have full face makeup. I just realized how badass it would be to make a superhero character with the bottom-right one and getting him a job in the police career track or whatever it's called.

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph.../sims2_0007.png
Glasses. Again, there's more. The other pages are mostly colored sunglasses/regular eyeglasses.

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph.../sims2_0008.png
Facial hair. I think it's pretty sexist that men can wear makeup but the women can't have beards. Who's with me?!

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph.../sims2_0009.png
The cream of the corn: Clothing. There's way too much to show in screenshots but just tell me what style of clothes you want to wear (casual, nerdy, gorilla costume, etc) and I'll try my damnedest. You can customize all your sim's outfits too. From top to bottom: Everyday, formal, underwear, pajamas, swimwear, gym clothes. I'll probably stick with the defaults of everything but the first one for simplicity but lemme know if you want something specific (like a pirate costume for formalwear).

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph.../sims2_0010.png
Onto personality. The starsign doesn't really matter if you distribute your points here personally. (Astrology's bullcrap anyway.) Just deal your twenty-five personality points however you want. This determines essentially everything about the way your sim acts, mostly around other people. Our example guy appears to have cancer.

Pick an aspiration too: From left to right, Pleasure, Family, Romance, Wisdom, Wealth, and Popularity. This determines what your sim wants and fears (two neat features shown at the bottom of the screen). Someone with the Wealth aspiration might want to get a job or marry a rich person, while someone with the Popularity aspiration will want to have a lot of friends or throw a party. I've had a guy with Romance express a desire to do the nasty with five people. It's good to have goals, I guess, but wtf.

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph.../sims2_0011.png
Finally, turn-ons and turn-offs. Basically what makes your sim attracted to others. Choose two turn-ons and one turn-off. Your options are cologne, stink, fatness, fitness, formalwear, swimwear, underwear, makeup, full face makeup, glasses, hats, facial hair, vampirism, and certain hair colors (black, brown, blonde, red, and white. Lol old people fetish). And I just found out there's one expansion that lets you have zombies and robots as turn-ons. Hell yes, I need to "acquire" that one.

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph.../sims2_0012.png
And if, for whatever reason, you want to be a dog or a cat, that's possible too. They're not all that different from humans. Just choose a breed and whether you want to be large or small, and an adult or a puppy/kitten.

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph.../sims2_0013.png
Fur color, fur texture, and markings. Need more detail? Ask.

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph.../sims2_0014.png
Collar. This isn't all the options but there's more or less every color available.

http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/Ph.../sims2_0015.png
Personality. Pretty straightforward, not as specific as humans.

And that's about it. Get crackin' if you want to be in this. I figure we'll end up with less people if I let you guys choose whether you want to participate, so it'll hopefully end up being easier on me. We'll probably have a smaller house too, which is good because I plan on not using money cheats this time.

Edit: Forgot something. Relations. Adults can either be roommates or be related to each other, but teengers, children and toddlers have to be related to at least one adult. So we need to figure out what our family tree will be like too.

Phyzium - May 5, 2008 11:44 PM (GMT)
Bumpin' dis topix because I reinstalled the game today. Wanted to save space, so I've only got the base game and the University and Nightlife expansions now. So no pets anymore. Let's see if we can get this started again, duders? With a handy-dandy notebook signup sheet this time, woo.

Also, I found a topic just like this at another forum, and that guy is crazy and took screenshots of every hairstyle/glasses/some other stuff in the game, so I'll just steal kindly borrow his references. I'm whimsically malicious. Off we go, chaps:

Name: (First and last. If you want to live in the same house as someone else, make your last name the same as theirs. If not, pick a different one)
Male/Female:
Age: (Toddler, Child, Teen, Adult, Elderly)
Skin/Hair/Eye color:
Hair Style: Male styles, female styles.. Pick a letter and number so I know which one you want. This dude has more expansion packs than I do, so some of these aren't available in my game. Naturally, I can't tell which ones because I can't make out the little icons that show which styles come from which EP. So pick one and hope for the best.
Facial Appearance including makeup, glasses, and beards:
Attire:
Birth Sign: References, huzzah
Aspiration: Pleasure, Family, Romance, Knowledge, Wealth, or Popularity
2 Turn Ons and 1 Turn Off: Choose from these: Cologne, stink, fatness, fitness, formalwear, swimwear, underwear, makeup, full face makeup, glasses, hats, facial hair, vampirism, black hair, brown hair, blonde hair, red hair, and white hair.
Career: Basic ones are Athletic, Business, Criminal, Culinary, Law Enforcement, Medical, Military, Politics, Science, or Slacker. If you go to college (only for teens), you can get a job in Art, Natural Science, Paranormal, or Show Business.

Dragon Paw - May 6, 2008 12:15 AM (GMT)
Name: Kurt Carpenter
Male
Age: Adult
Skin/Hair/Eye color: Tan; dark brown; brown.
Hair Style: One that's like long, and Asian looking.

OH FOUND IT.

D6.

Facial Appearance including makeup, glasses, and beards: A mustache, please.
Attire: Something flamboyantly gay, preferably with pink or neon green.
Birth Sign: Gemini, oh yeah.
Aspiration: Romance.
2 Turn Ons and 1 Turn Off:
Cologne and fatness.
Fitness.
Career: Medical.

Zai - September 27, 2008 05:49 PM (GMT)
I got the urge to do this yesterday. And do it I shall. But you don't get to choose what you look like. I do.

And KL will be Cael, a dog. Eventually, I'll adopt a second dog, for breeding purposes. Or someone could volunteer to be a dog.

Also. I want this to be a DE family. So. I need 2 girls. And I'm not includin' Ev 'cause I haven't seen her in like a year. So yeah. Volunteers?

Actually. I'm thinkin' Phyz gets to be a girl. Just for the child of ours to be named Phyzai, Zaizium, and/or whatever other wacky names I/we come up with.

Phyz - September 27, 2008 06:01 PM (GMT)
Make me a hot girl, at least. (And keep me away from GG.)

...Actually there's an ingame cheat that lets men get pregnant. Tombstone of Life and Death or something.

Omni - September 27, 2008 07:00 PM (GMT)
I wanna be in one, but I wanna choose how I look...

Zai - September 27, 2008 07:15 PM (GMT)
Too bad. You're going to be the grandpa. You might not live with the rest of us because of that.

And yeah. I can make men have babies. In fact, I can skip pregnancy altogether. But where's the fun in that?

Fluorii - September 28, 2008 01:24 AM (GMT)
I want to be Kurt. I want to be a delinquent teenager. Make it happen. I also want to look either really Asian or Mexican.

Zai - September 28, 2008 01:50 AM (GMT)
I had this one Asian-looking guy earlier in Create A Sim. He was awesome. But then I changed his face because all of the children he was having with his porn star wife and daughters were butt fugly.

Oh yes.

Zai - September 28, 2008 03:39 AM (GMT)

From left to right:

Zeke
Dylan (shut up you, I can spell it however the fuck I want)
Chandler
Kurt
Zai
Andrew

I ran out of interest, so I stopped makin' people. Remind me if I forgot you, and you are not Omni or KP.

Wait! I've got it! Omni will be the grandpa still, but he'll live somewhere else, and KP will take care of him.

GENIUS!

So. I had to make myself the child of someone else. I can't remember if I'm the son of Dylan or Chandler. Either way, I'm one f'ed up kid.

Fluorii - September 28, 2008 03:41 AM (GMT)
...wait why am I a viking.

...

Cool.

Zai - September 28, 2008 03:45 AM (GMT)
It's your Flavor Flav hat.

Cherish it.

Fluorii - September 28, 2008 03:46 AM (GMT)
I think I'm going to wake up every morning, come on this topic, and kiss my studly hat through the screen.

Zai - September 28, 2008 03:47 AM (GMT)
Flavor Flav '08.

Phyz - September 28, 2008 03:50 AM (GMT)
Ahaha I only saw the three on the far left at first because of the scrollbar. Then I clicked view image and cracked the hell up. XD

...I like how GG is Marty McFly with an afro, DP is an alien viking raver who's making eyes at Zai, CF and Chanman are mild-mannered businessmen who probably hang out in coffee shops, and I'm a flaming ski instructor. This is gonna be the best thing ever.

Fluorii - September 28, 2008 06:12 PM (GMT)
I just shamelessly ripped off Zai's idea.

Meet the DEites. They're great.

From left to right -
GG.
Phyz. He recently discovered a love for Native American culture.
CF. He's from the future.
Me. I'm hip.
Muz is checking KD out.
KD is getting checked out.
And Evelon wishes Muz would check her out.

KP wants to learn how to play basketball.
Nicole is being responsible.
Zai is going through a rebellious stage.
Chanman is Zai's dad.
I think KL might be from hell.
Glenn's surrounded by black people and will quickly renounce his heterosexuality.
Kazu is a punk.
Omni doesn't like Kazu because he's a breakdancing punk.

Phyz - September 28, 2008 07:11 PM (GMT)
fuck now I wanna do this too.

BUT MY TORRENT'S AT 0.2% AND I STARTED IT LAST NIGHT AND LEFT MY COMPUTER ON WTF

The D on my belt totally stands for "Dangerous"

GG13 - September 28, 2008 07:31 PM (GMT)
I hate how DP made me look.

I WISH I HAD THE SIMS NOW.

I know, rite?

I at least tried to give you some Kamina-like glasses. And I gave you some non-default afro hair.

Also. I'm not that young, DP. And I haven't had blonde hair since I was 1 year old.

GG13 - September 28, 2008 10:36 PM (GMT)
Those are nothing like Kamina glasses.

AND YOU'RE YOUNG TO US, SONNY.

Zai - September 29, 2008 09:03 PM (GMT)

I didn't say they were. I said I tried to give you some. But those were the best I could find.
QUOTE (GG)

As are you. Everyone that is [frequently] on the DE is a young person. You just turned 18. That means you're still a teenager. When you can legally drink in the country you live in, get back to me. But until then:

STFU NUB.

Fluorii - September 30, 2008 12:41 AM (GMT)
WEEK ONE.

It is a placid week in the DEpressed family.

Glenn and KP keep making out.

I told you Glenn wouldn't stay heterosexual.

Omni - September 30, 2008 06:27 AM (GMT)
fuck you all... this grandpa shit is annoying.

Chaotic Fear - September 30, 2008 06:52 AM (GMT)
Calling Omni that stuff is offensive behavior, and I'm not going to allow you to continue doing it. O.o

Why do I have blond hair and a goatee.

Fluorii - September 30, 2008 10:47 AM (GMT)
[quote]fuck you all... this grandpa shit is annoying. [/fine]

Fine. When you pass away in the game, I'll make the first person's baby you.

Muzikal - September 30, 2008 11:30 AM (GMT)
The phrase "fuck you" is also offensive behavior.


...why are you black?

Phyz - September 30, 2008 02:46 PM (GMT)
Hah, I was gonna make him a baby.

And then we can all laugh most jovially when he becomes an elder.

GG13 - September 30, 2008 05:58 PM (GMT)
If it upsets him that much, we really should stop, guys.

Zai - September 30, 2008 09:01 PM (GMT)
QUOTE (CF)
Why do I have blond hair and a goatee.

Because I have yet to see a picture of you, and therefore I am blissfully unaware of how you look. So I made you look how I felt you looked at the moment in time.

I feel these things.

Fluorii - October 1, 2008 02:26 AM (GMT)
CF said he had brown hair, so I improvised a little bit and came up with the Dylan you see in my game. It's very accurate, is it not.

Omni - October 1, 2008 02:32 AM (GMT)
I'm not mad lol. I just think it's dumb.

Zai - October 1, 2008 09:02 PM (GMT)

I felt that CF looked better with his hair dyed blonde. As I said, I feel these things.

Also. I think I just noticed something. Is he giving the finger in your av?
