Custom Neighbourhoods

For a long time now, I've been considering making a custom made premade neighbourhood. I know it's a big project, and I don't know when/if I'll have time to get around to it any time soon, but it's definitely something I plan to cross off my Simmer card before I hang up my Plumbbob (which won't be any time soon, I promise.)

So this poll is to just gather some opinions on what people are likely to download. There's no point making a full Downtown if nobody would ever play it! If you'd be interested at all in playing any sort of custom made neighbourhood, please fill this out! If you'd only like to see one kind of neighbourhood, please just put "no" for all the other questions!

As always, leave any comments/suggestions/ideas/queries below.

'Hood Decision

I'm thinking about playing one of the default neighbourhoods from scratch; playing each family in rotation, trying out new storylines and just seeing what happens.

If I do decide to do this, what town should I go for? I can't decide whether to pick a tried and tested town like Pleasantview or Strangetown, or something a bit more unusual like Desiderata Valley or Belladonna Cove. Suggestions please and leave a comment with your reasons if you want!

This poll is closed.

Which neighbourhood should I play?

Pleasantview
9(18.8%)
Strangetown
4(8.3%)
Veronaville
3(6.2%)
Bluewater Village
3(6.2%)
Riverblossom Hills
9(18.8%)
Desiderata Valley
4(8.3%)
Belladonna Cove
16(33.3%)

Film 2013

On January 1st 2013, I decided New Year's Resolutions weren't for me. I'm not saying I'm perfect and there's nothing I need to change (far from it!) but I hate the whole cliché of a resolution and I know I'd just end up breaking it by January 2nd.

So I decided to do a challenge instead... It came to my attention over the Christmas period that I hadn't seen a great deal of the movies that my friends and family were talking about, and a few recent trips to the cinema (to see Skyfall and Jack Reacher) have really reawakened a love of film. As such, my challenge for 2013 is to watch at least 50 films I've never seen before. This includes new releases, cinema classics or just random films I find when channel hopping or checking out friends' DVD collections. As long as it's not something I've seen before, it's in.

This post will be updated throughout the year, with maybe a little review at the end of each month to check on my progress. If you've got any suggestions for films (old or new) I simply must watch, leave your suggestions here. Happy New Year!

How It Happened...



“What do you think? Do you like it?”

“It’s amazing, dear... But why does it only go up to the year 2012?”

“Oh, yeah... I ran out of room on the stone. I’ll get some more eventually and make a new one. But there’s no rush... We’ve got all the time in the world!”
