New place for River’s Bend

I’ve realised that I don’t have time to blog in the traditional sense about River’s Bend BUT I really, really want to continue to play the hood and share the progress, so I’ve decided to use tumblr for that purpose.

The new hood and the new blog

So, here it is:

Moving on then

Since I had a bit of free time (and frankly, I’ve been poking around in the Sim CC sections of the internet forever, because simming is important, dammit) I started creating my new hood.

It’s going to be called Barchester and I’ve set up a blog for it and everything. Rolled 6 starting families and added a few lots here and there. Building the hood is going to be a WIP, I’m not the kind of player who has to finish a hood to play it.

Anyway, enjoy (?) some pictures of the process.

Crash and restart?

I’m sad to announce that I lost River’s Bend along with everything else on my harddrive recently. Had a nasty virus that required a complete wipe and reinstall of everything so everything I’d saved, including my backup that I for some ungodly reason had forgot to transfer to someplace beside, you know, the harddrive is gone.

I really want to continue to world-build in Sims 2 (Sims 3 and 4 do nothing for me) and I’m considering starting over from scratch with another hood. Since I’m also back to working full time now my gaming time is much more limited but I really, really miss simming.

Just wanted to let you know the state of things.
