I’m in Grade 11 this year and I’ve promised Dad that I will really knuckle down and work hard. I still don’t know what I want to do when I’m older but I know I’ll have more options available if I go to college.

Sim personalities and birth control

I haven't played out my next update yet, so instead you're getting another nerdy gameplay post from me.

Anyone who uses ACR in their games will be aware of the havoc it can wreak on your hood's population. Fortunately, ACR also includes a birth control option, which tempers that quite a bit!

For a long time in my game, I've allowed any sim with five or more neat points to use birth control. I snagged that idea from Laura, though I think her sims needed seven neat points. The thinking is that if a sim is neat, they would be organised enough to keep track of their birth control and remember to use it. However, ever since reading this post at Riverdale, I've been pondering how I could use the other personality traits to help me decide who would and wouldn't use birth control.

Quick note about my older posts

Yesterday, I received a comment telling me a lot of my pictures in my older posts were not showing up. I was glad to get that comment, honestly, because I really didn't know!

It was a simple but tedious fix and I believe I went through my first 10 rounds and got them all. As far as I clicked through, there didn't seem to be any more missing pics after that. But if any of you happen to come across a post with a picture which is not showing up and the problem is not fixed by doing a hard refresh (normally CTRL + F5), could you please leave a comment and let me know? I get notifications on any comment left in any post, so I'll definitely see your comment and be able to fix the picture(s).

Calvin and I really love watching Amy play with Natalie. We were a tiny bit worried that we’d get tantrums once she wasn’t the centre of attention any more but Amy has been great with her little sister.
