About this blog
I’ve been a Sims fan for a long time, and I’ve always been a fan of creating big families and trying to control them all. So, what better way to do this than play a fundie family?
I originally began with a Sims 2 family and a Sims 3 family. My Sims 3 game messed up at one point (I couldn't play it), but it does all seem to be working again, so I have recently brought them back. I subsequently added a Sims 4 family.
Sims 2 Family: the Bancrofts. Parents are Karen and Martin and the kids are Madison, Michael, Max, Mason, Martha, Matthew, Mark, Morgan, Mackenzie and Malachi. Madison & Michael, Martha & Matthew, Mark & Morgan are twins. I sent them all to college when appropriate. The eldest four all graduated, but then the others dropped out (I find the university aspect boring, plus I figured it'd be a fundie-like thing). Madison is married to Paul Walker, Michael is married to Mary (nee Cole), Max is married to Lily (forget her maiden name), and the others are all in their own houses or in the housing bin. Because there's no story progression, it can be hard to keep up with all of them and play them all equally. There is currently a total of 11 grandkids. Madison has four: Ashlyn, Brynlee, Carson & Daxton (twins), with another on the way. Michael has four: Kaleb, Katherine, Kyle and Kaylee. Max and Lily have three. They adopted two and have one biological kid. Jennifer is the eldest (adopted), then Ryan is the sole bio child, and Christopher is the latest (adopted) grandkid.
Sims 3 Family: the Taylors. Parents are Melissa and Joey and the kids are Andrew, Bethany, Christopher, Diana, Elijah and Francesca. Andrew is a singleton, Bethany and Christopher are twins, and Diana, Elijah and Francesca are triplets. Andrew is only a teen, plus I haven't played them as much, so there are no grandchildren.
Sims 4 Family: the Smiths. Parents are Nicole and Edward and the kids are Eliza and Emily, Eddie and Elijah, Evelyn and Elliot. All sets of twins. Eliza married Mark Pearson and has two children: Adam and Benjamin. Emily is married and has broken away from the family rules. She is married to Daniel Westbury (although hasn't changed her name), has a job as an astronaut, wears trousers (I'm from the UK and pants are underwear to us!), and no kids yet. She may have kids of her own (but maybe just two or three) or she may adopt. I do tend to make my Sims have kids so I doubt she'll remain entirely childless. The others are still in the family home.
I also sometimes feature "guest" posts featuring my non-fundie families.
