So about a year ago, I was enthusiastically hoovering my room, and I knocked a glass of water over my red laptop, pretty much killing it. I lost a lot of stuff on it, important things like my CV (I think Americans say résumé?) and sims stuff, like my Riverside prosperity 'hood. I was pretty gutted about it all.
I got a shiny new laptop about a month later, and tried to pick up Riverside with just the gen 2 sims, which I'd saved to my box account. But it wasn't the same, I didn't have the same attachment, and I lost interest.
But! My rebuilding skills have improved, and a couple of days ago, I decided to put Riverside back together again - properly this time. I ended up really excited about it and stayed up ridiculously late sorting the 'hood out. It's *nearly* ready to play!
So I thought I'd do a post to remind you where we were at with the families. There was one update I didn't get to post before the 'hood was gone, and that was Dylan's last uni trip - he's since joined the regular rotation, so you'll find information on him at the bottom of the post. Each family is presented with their 'before' picture, taken at the end of the last rotation in the old 'hood, and the current picture, from the rebuild 'hood.
I also ended up with an additional member of generation 2, which I'll cover when I get to that family.
So here we are! Riverside rebuilt, in rotation order: ( Collapse )
