Disabled Sims and gardening and other stuff

December 10, 2012

If disabled sims were included and they had the option of wheelchairs. I don’t see why the gardening would not be an option for them. There could be  gardening boxes that were wheelchair height and then the disabled sims could garden that way. Who says disabled sims can’t be   Athletes?  In the real world there are sports for disabled people ie. wheelchair basketball, Sledge hockey.  Heck..any sport a able bodied person can do a disabled person can also do just with adjustments according to this website:  Or why else would there be a Para-Olympics for those disabled people if they can’t be athletes?



Modern Day Werewolves

November 17, 2012

Due to events in the TV show Once Upon a Time on November 12  I will write a blog about my thoughts about werewolves.  For those of you who don’t what  Once Upon a Time is here a summary for you: Centers on a woman with a troubled past who is drawn into a small town in Maine where the magic and mystery of Fairy Tales just may be real.

Warning Do NOT READ THIS ARTICLE UNTIL YOU HAVE SEEN “Child of the Moon” Episode (and for that matter “Red-Handed” from Season 1 too)

I like the way that good charries werewolves are portrayed in today’s stories. For example Lupin from Harry Potter and Red from Once Upon a Time. I like the way that the werewolf is a disabltiy rather than an illness and Lupin and Red (eventually) accept the werewolf side of them as part of them because of help from friends  James, Sirius or in Red’s case, Snow.

I say that being a werewolf is the same as having a disabltiy because in Harry Potter. Lupin can’t get a job easily because of what he is. That seems to be very similar to those of us in real life who are disabled can’t get jobs because of misconceptions about disabled for instance “hiring a disabled person will cost too much” when the truth is the excat opposite.

Yes in both cases Lupin and Red’s worlds there are fellow werewolves who have shunned wizards or humans to live as a pack on their own and have a hatred for humans/wizards.

My simulation game if I could make one

April 24, 2012

If I could make a sim simulation game this is what I would have:

IF I could make a sim simulation game this is what I would have:

In CAS there would be a butt slider and leg sliders. Oh and tooth design sliders
There would be of course clothing, but as part of clothing there would be an underclothes section. There would be a pre-teen stage (that I will explain down below)

(next part would be a bit contversy):

There would be one very special button..this button allows you have to the D word sims. If you press this button, you get access in-game to ramps,elevators and special kind of stoves, showers and compailty buildings. But if you don’t want the D word sims just don’t click on the button. (this is the only way that you could get D word sims in my version of the game if I could make one), using this would get an additional sliders that allows for hearing loss and which ear. (of course there would be an option at the start of the game whether you want to play a town with both disabled and able bodied sims or no disabled sims at all.)*

Ambitious-would want to get As, and if they have dramtic trait too would want to get lead role (and if evil or mean sprited might try to sabtoge the real lead’s role)

Artistic-creative projects for homework and doodle in their notebooks during lunch hour

Dramatic students-put on plays (if there is more then one major competion)

Bookworm students tutor other kids and maybe get paid (by evil sims) to do their homework

Evil toddlers-can draw on walls (and maybe older adult sims can kidnap others-I have more thoughts about kidnapping idea later)

flirty sims are more concerned with finding a bf/gf than school work or anything else

Genius students tutor other kids and maybe get paid to do homework

Hopeless romantic-want to find their one true love

Would love for more ideas for traits.

There would be jobs of course. Journalist would be sent to “the field” to cover stuff. They could get chased by dogs and on rare occasion a poltican.

You and your co-workers at paper A have been writing articles about what some people considered to be the buffoon politician. Some readers of the Paper A have commented on the Paper’s website that you were ‘attacking’ the politician. While Paper B has been making the buffoon politician look ‘good’. What do you do?

1)make a contraction (readership goes down 2)keep writing articles about the scrapes the buffoon poltican is always getting in (don’t know what to put as a consequence here anyone know?) or 3)ignore

or chance card two:
The Mayor been claiming you been spying on their family and that’s why he chased you off their property. Techinally you weren’t spying on anyone, you just were doing research on the park behind their property. What do you do?

1)Confess you were spying or 2)tell the truth 3)ignore

Polictians could actually set up and have sim elections (all the sims would go to vote for their choice) and make real decisions

Chance Card: You used to coach a school football team before you became mayor. When you did become mayor you missed several council meetings to go and be at you’re team’s games. You claim that they forfeit the game if you weren’t there. What do you do?

1) disregard everyone else’s opinion and still go and be the team’s coach or 2)make being mayor the priority.3)ignore

. Law Enforcement go around and keep the crime low? Doctors (think its fine), Military is fine (the only idea I have might not go over well.) Culinary is fine, Scientist (maybe trying to find cures for the diseases–not anything serious in my version of the game). Musicians are fine. Authors could have book signings at the book store.

*supply teacher would not be part of the Education career but the being paid would amount to how many days you were called in, in a week.

There would be a bakery, a candy store, a mall, restaurants,

of course grocery store (this would have shopping cart where you’re sim can place their food and if they have a small child they can place the child in the front of the shopping cart, but there would also be little toy shopping carts too for toddler children) & book store (yes these would be non-rabitholes but for the restaurant there would be a bit of a rabbit hole, the “kitchen” is the rabbit hole. You could buy out and run them yourself you would be able to set prices, hire employees,  (base game) restaurants are three kinds:

1)fast food
2.)casual dinning (ie. Tim Horton’s/subway)
3)Slow-Food restaurant (ie.any restaurant which has servers and a hostess)

4)Chinese, Itlain, etc restaurants.

there would be little chance cards about problems employees are having and you have to make the right descions). Example:

“Store (any store):
Other Employees have reported that one employee, Dodger, has been embezzling money or stealing (what ever the store sells) and threatening employees. But Dodger has always been nice to you and you can’t imagine to fire him.

Choice 1)Fire them 2)Keep them but give him a warning? (if it continues company goes bankrupt) 3)lawsuit? 4) ignore”

Restaurant (but can also work with the Mall)
“A mom was in a restaurant in the dinning area with a baby and started to breastfeed the baby and another customer complained to their server of the breastfeeding being “tasteless” and the server asks the mom to leave or move to the ladies room.

Choice 1. Apologize to the mom and/or Fire Employees 2)Warn employees that behaviour is unacceptable. 3)?”

With a Pets EP and if you choose to have a town with disabled people (or made a disabled one yourself in CAS) here’s another idea

(any place service dogs allowed) the situation would be different it could either be a service dog trainer or a disabled sim.
“A disabled people was in the Grocery store with their dog and one of you’re employees told the sim they wouldn’t allowed to have dogs in the building. And the sim kept saying that they needed the dog to do X for them and its was a service dog. But the employee kept insisting the person leave.

1. Apologize to disabled person and/or fire employees 2)Give warning to employees 3)?”

end of examples

P.I. career idea idea:

kidnapping (either: ransom, or bride)

can use fake sim Monopoly money to fool the crooks.

a Scooby-Doo like case (all that is needed is costumes (eg. Mummy costume, Vampire costume-I don’t think ghosts would work in this case since every sim in the sim universe can see ghosts) and the costumes had a removable head. Or it still might work since the Scooby Doo live action movies.

Movie theatre: get to chose what kind of snack/pop your sim want to eat/drink (or decide just to skip the snack and pop and wait until after the movie to eat).

you can chose whether sim moms could breast feed them or just stick with the green glob of milk bottle. (note: Breastfeed babies are less likely to get diseases). Babies aren’t swaddled up. The have legs, and you can dress them in cute little outfits. Sim moms/dad/grandparents/older siblings can sing to them or rock them in the rocking chair. Yes bath them too.

Toddlers you can chose to still have sim mom breast feed or if your kid is on the bottle move to a sippy cup. (they can still move to a sippy cup if you started off breasting feeding) Toddlers can steal the other’s cup/bottle. If there are twin or triplets, they have more “connection” with each other. (through out life). Also get floaties.

mostly the same (expect being able to help with gardening and using the microwave and toaster and can use the stove with parents’ supervision and able to play instruments). There would be a playhouse and a play kitchen. costumes: dragon, teacher, bride, dancer). and toy cash registers that could even look from a Western movie or from modern time. elementary school and children would 1)learn skills there and 2)bring home assignments for specific classes (which you chose on the child aging up to child, from toddler). There would be events like ‘bake sale’ at the school. oh and there would be recesses for children.

can have crushes, but get embarrassed by someone coming in and see them playing with “childish” things, can cook with the stove without supervision, but can only cook very simple things. middle school, tougher assignments than elementary, but not as tough as high school. and learn skills.

can get acne, sneak out, cook more fine things.

high school more difficult assignments and learn skills

have this idea for teens (of both genders). They can take a home Ec club(they will learn cooking and sewing in it) and as a take-home assignment they take an doll simulator home with them for the weekend or for a week (but for how long it depends on the length ie. short,normal,long, epic) . They have to take care of the doll (it will cry) and return it to the school when the time is over.

week 1 could be cooking

week 2 sewing

week 3 family?

week 4 either week 4 or 5 would be taking the doll simulator home. It could be done in two ways.

1)not a “couple” yes the active sim can have a gf/bf but I don’t mean a couple in that sense.* I will explain in number 2 The active sim will take the doll home and take care of it for a period (ie weekend).

2)the “class/club” will be paired up with someone of the opposite gender and they have to share the doll.(hard for me to explain what I’m trying too)


Young Adult:
can go college (you can live at home or live in res, well living in res there would be cooking classes, and other how-to-live-on-your-own classes), and yes in this case YAs at college can become pregnant.


Mixolgoy, Baking, cooking and Charisma skills.



Adults can chose to take a class @ the college

Elders can also take a class @ the college

There would be the option to give up a baby for adoption.


You can either  hire a event planner, or plan your own wedding. You would chose who would be bridesmaids, ringer bearer, flowergirl, and hire a caterer (I have another idea, that you can be a careteer or a event planner..but I still working on that). Or if you sim has parents, the sim mom could cook your wedding cake and supper, and sew the wedding dress).

arranged marriage 

1.  (Historical) James and Alice are babies, their parents want them to get married when they’re Young adults. So they sign a bethoraled. When Alice is a child, Alice goes to live for the entire childhood stage with her future in-laws. When they age into teen Alice goes back to her parents’ house. They have chaperoned dates through out the teen stage.  They get married as Young Adults (if they don’t fall in love with someone else)

2. (Sleeping Beauty)James and Alice are babies their parents want them to get married when they’re young adults. They meet at school and become friends (as children). After they age up into teen, their parents tell them they’re bethored. They go out on a couple of chaperoned dates. They get married (if they don’t fall in love with someone else) as Young Adults.

3. (modern) James and Alice have dated a lot of possible future “mates” their parents set them up with. But they have said “no” to most of them and somehow either a)family member, b)matchmaker, c)friend tells James’ family about Alice.  They get together and have some chaperoned dates, and sign an agreement to get married when they’re young adults.

Adults- will have a mid-life cris, want to either get divorce, or try to re-spark their old love with their life (depends on their traits), or get a new car,(or a toy train set).

Elders Retirement home. Bingo,gym, cards, scrabble,etc. They don’t need to live in the retirement home but can go visit there for the activies. They can also if parents are away take care of little kids either at the the grandparents’ children’s place or if they don’t live in the retirment home at the grandparents’ place. The elders can also still bike, swim, if active enough. Or have “Dancing or Dramtic” Grannies



dating, shopping, clubs: everything from drama to off-campus clubs for those who don’t live on campus. There would be jobs around the campus. helping with the food at meal times, cash register, student libararan,etc. There can also be volunteer opportunities.

both regular pets but if you press the button to create disabled sims you get the option with Pets installed of Service pets (anything from Service Dog to Service Monkey) of course even if you didn’t opt for Disabled Sims. You could train a service dog if you’re sim was able-bodied.
