Aside

sims3stories-logo1 (2)That’s right, folks, Simwahine’s Sims 3 Stories has found a cozy little place in the ‘burbs to call home. It’s a great little neighborhood and all new construction. Plenty of room for you to build your own custom story-telling home. Check out the neighborhood at Sims3Stories.com. I’ll throw another shrimp on the barbie.JakeKeiffer-2

This site will still remain available for awhile due to the fact that it ranks very high in Google searches for animated woohoo (what is up with that??? lol), however all new updates will be added to the new site and pages not related to animated woohoo may slowly start to disappear from this location.

We’re moving!

Whatever happened to Shaun IV?

shaunIVSo I’m minding my own business (well actually it was Zach’s business, I think, but anyway…) when I noticed that Cierra was looking a bit orange. I maxed her motives but that didn’t take care of the problem so I bopped over to see what was wrong. She was sad. Why was she sad?

My pregnancies are 21 days (504 hours), or roughly 9 months on my sim calendar. Mods are available that will change the length of pregnancy for you, but if you want a length that isn’t offered, here’s how you can make the necessary changes in Retuner. Continue reading

StoryProgression: How to Create a Caste to Prevent Pregnancies

A friend over at the NRaas site asked to see how I have my No Babies caste set up when she heard that I’m able to keep a select group of sims from reproducing (most have already flooded the gene pool in SV2E — like Vlad and Sarah, shown above).

Rather than try to explain in painstaking detail how to set it up, I’m posting pictures of the caste settings. To access the option to create a caste, from city hall, a computer, or any sim you want in the caste go to NRaas > StoryProgression > Caste Options > (Add New Caste) then change the settings to match what are shown here.
