So wow! I think that's a record number of babies for Sullivan and only two people shuffling off this mortal coil for them to replace too. I'm pretty sure the number of weddings is a record too, though one I have hit before. Shall I try for five next round? Just kidding!

I have no one even engaged right now but I can tell you that we will be seeing at least one engagement and subsequent wedding in Sullivan next round. :D

Lot tour: Malcolm and Hope's new house

Okay, so here is the promised lot tour! I meant to have it up yesterday but got caught up with a few other things before I could get it ready. The house is this one from Mod the Sims. 

I didn't change much at all about the exterior - the windows and doors were it, I think.

Lot tour: Hubris Games

I've had Hubris Games (named after Hubris Comics, from the Fallout series) sitting around my hood for more than six months now. I started it, went full bore for a while and then lost steam for months. Last night, I had a sudden flash of motivation and decided to finish it. 

I'm intending this as a career lot for both the Gaming and the Game Development careers, so both Troy and Elspeth will work here. It's inspired by the Life Invader offices in GTA5, as well as various photos I've seen of Facebook and Google offices over the world. I still want to add/fix up a bit of the deco and I may turn the roof into *something* but for all intents and purposes, it's done. 

So here is the exterior. It was originally three storeys but I brought it down to two, because having all that space to fill was part of what made me lose steam with it to begin with.
