I have never played any type of rotational save in The Sims, so I thought I'd give it a go. I decided since I've never really played the EA households, I'd play them and get to know them as they were placed in game.

I am starting with:

Oasis Springs

Play for one calendar year/4 weeks per season

Schedule:
Spring 4 Sim Weeks/ This is Week 1 for each household.

Week 1: The Pancakes because I love Bob and Eliza is so misunderstood.
(Poor, poor Bob and Eliza – have they ever been happy? It seems there’s nothing one can do to please the other. Just what is keeping this couple together? Or, conversely, what is the spark that will finally drive them apart?)



Bob's Aspiration: Master Chef. Save starts with him at level 3 in the culinary career.

Eliza's Aspiration: Mansion Baron. No Career.

The Pancakes Progress Wk 1
The Pancakes Wk 2

Week 1: The Goths
(The Goths are an aristocratic family with a dreary aura. Between Mortimer writing macabre stories and Bella's mysterious disappearances will Cassandra and Alexander grow up to be gloomy, too?)

Mortimer Goth: Career: Writer (started with level 3) Aspiration: Renaissance Sim
Bella Goth: Career: Secret Agent (level 2) Aspiration: Party Animal
Cassandra Goth: (Teen) Career: High School: C Student; Scouting:Llama Scout; Aspiration: Musical Genius
Alexander Goth: (Child)  Career: Grade School: C Student; Scouting:Llama Scout; Aspiration:Whiz Kid
The Goth's Week One

Week 1: Spencer-Kim-Lewis
(Okay, here’s the breakdown: Dennis Kim and Lydia Spencer had a daughter named Alice Spencer-Kim, then divorced. Alice married Eric Lewis and had her own little girl, Olivia Kim-Lewis. They live with Alice’s dad (Dennis, remember?) and Eric’s mom, Vivian Lewis. Hey, no one ever said family was easy!)
Vivian Lewis: Aspiration: Big Happy Family Career: none
Dennis Kim: Aspiration:Successful Lineage Career: None
Eric Lewis: Aspiration: Mansion Baron Career: Stay at home dad
Alice Spencer-Kim  Aspiration: Painter Extraordinaire Career: Stay at home mom
Olivia Kim-Lewis Aspiration: Artistic Prodigy Career: Grade School (C)
Spencer-Kim Lewis Week 1

Week 1: BFF
(Free spirit Liberty, cheerful Summer, and geeky Travis are unlikely friends, and nothing can come between these three. Except perhaps the growing feelings both Summer and Liberty have for Travis...)

Travis Scott:
Career: Quality Assurance (level 2 Tech Guru)
0/4 Computer Whiz Aspiration

Liberty Lee:
Career: Module Cleaner (level 2 Astronaut)
0/4 Nerd Brain Aspiration

Summer Holiday:
Career: Dish Washer (level 2 Dish washer)
Aspiration: 0/4 Friend of the World
The BFFs Wk 1

Goals:


  1. To achieve the aspiration the game sets for each sim and advance in career/school.

  2. Fulfill whims. I will try not to cancel any whims.....stop laughing.  

  3. No cheating needs or money.


It will be interesting to see how far we get in one calendar year.

Week 1 The Pancakes

Eliza and Bob were pretty busy this week.





One....they had a baby girl,named her Maple. She's now a toddler.


Two: Eliza is busy trying not to die from hysteria. She keeps bouncing back  between playful and very playful. I hope I don't come back to find her dead Suspect




Three: Bob is cooking, making drinks, going to work and throwing parties. He helps with Maple when he can find the time.


He is deciding which recipe to create: Bubalus Fricassee or Hasenpfeffer? Maybe a Deconstruction of Bubalus?

Let's go see what The Goth's are up to......

Poor Bob!  Maybe he should consult a (witch) doctor.

I have never really tried rotational play. Your set up makes it look very appealing.

It's fun so far!
I can make this an actual forum challenge if there is enough interest.

1 week each month. I am assuming Sims month's have 4 weeks? 12 weeks per each household per sim year?

At least for the willow creek save as there are 4 household's in the neighborhood, which works nicely with the household's and timeline.

My brain figured a "Sim calendar year". Was 4 weeks but then it misfired at 4 weeks per season.
Brain need nap... (or me need more brainzzz)

That looks and sounds very involved. Do you play each household for the year then move on? Sorry, I'll just follow your progress and figure it all out as it goes along. Smile

Hi Gram! I am playing each household in Oasis Springs for 1 week each month, for a year. Then for the next world I'll start a new save and start again.

I am just getting started so things may change.

They celebrated Love Day by dressing up, the kids loved this tradition.


The kids left for their scout meeting in these "scout outfits".

Stats:

The BFFs Wk 1 (Spring)

Everything seemed to be going smoothly at the house of The BFFs. No romantic tension between the housemates, so far.


Wren Sanderson stopped by for a visit and they decided to chat in the bathroom (brings back memories of Sims 3 parties!)


Summer tried out a new dish and was disappointed that it wasn't well received


That is, until she tried it!


Travis loves his job.


Summer met the "neighbors".....although she's never seen them around during her daily jog.


Getting in the mood for Spooky Day with a stream of Sims of the Dead.


Travis realizes actual basketball is much more difficult than playing "incredible sports"!


Travis and Liberty keep eating outside...in the rain, sooooo we added a roof over the deck.

Travis:



Summer:



Liberty:

The Pancakes Week 2 (Summer)

Things are moving right along in at Pique Hearth.




Bob decided to try and complete the ultimate aspiration, wish him luck!







Poor Maple must learn that actions bring consequences. Daddy fixed the dollhouse.


Bob is having the same kind of luck with the bees as he has with Bubalus!


Are you sure it's a good idea to listen to your headphones in the shower Bob?



Maple really enjoyed having a Nanny one day this week, and so did Eliza!




What a nice Bubalus! See Bob, it's good to have this tiny household member.





For Bubalus' reward, an anti-aging treat. How lucky are we!



"Not so lucky" says Bob.



Eliza's research has come in very handy.





Down the hatch! Bob was cured and both took the Inoculation serum.



These are constant moodlets in this household!


Trying to be just like Daddy! Don't even think of putting Maple in the highchair.


There are more fun times than grumpy times.


Has anyone seen Maple?


Wow, that's a scary sight!


"Bye, bye!" says Maple

Off to The Goth's.......
