My Sims2: EasyLife Complex 2
Greetings! Here are the news from EasyLife Complex, and your host is as
usual Morten Rossi, the world's second greatest entrepreneur! As you
may remember from
we were three people in a large house, pickled in debt and fresh out of
college. How would we fare in this tough world?
This is not a time and age where you can strike lucky and find a
motherlode under your cellar. Smart work, and lots of it, is the key to
success. Rebecka set to it with a vengeance, spending most of her days
in front of the computer researching and writing popular science
articles. She buys a lot of new clothes, but she is certainly pulling
her own weight. As her reputation is growing, she has started to get
more and more for each article. And with only § 20,000 in loan she has a
pretty comfortable economy.
My dear Celeste has other useful talents. She is by far the most social
of us, and makes friends easily. I had originally envisioned EasyLife
as a place to live for those who came fresh out of college and were used
to living with strangers and having their food cooked for them. But
Celeste would befriend just about anyone, and some of them started to
show interest in the concept. Lukas Karvonen here, for instance, was a
brilliant but eccentric scientist. He mentioned that he just might be
interested if this concept proved viable in the longer run.
I, of course, was never in doubt. I started the building of the next
three apartments, and hired a janitor to take some of the work off poor
Dea, who would concentrate on cooking and reception work. Of course,
there wasn't always anything for her to do, at least not yet, so she
had plenty of time to get to know us.
Our first new tenant was actually a fellow student from Festkilde. He
was the first to move into one of the new upstairs apartments. Lars
Ebak was a good friend of Rebecka, or at least that was our impression.
Perhaps that was all it was, too, at the time. If so, I guess the
environment may have influenced them over time...
I guess the sudden positive attitude toward marriage was a kind of
...especially when echoed by Rebecka. But you know what they say, love
makes blind. Or at least nearsighted.
"Oh no! Not those two as well! What kind of workplace is this, a love hotel?"
It could certainly look that way.
[This picture has its own cute little history. I use Pescado's sleep
clock to force the sims to go to bed in the evening so they are rested
for the next workday, but it only kicks in if they are awake, of course.
So like half an hour before her appointed bedtime, Rebecka suddenly
jumps up from her chair in her own apartment, and runs - literally -
upstairs and snuggles into Lars' bed in time before her own anti-alarm
kicks in. And still there are people who think that sims don't have a
REAL free will...]
"So, Lukas, want to join our happy little community? Who knows, you
might find the love of your life too, in time..."
Lukas moves in! Lukas brings §2000 and various junk in his backpack. Of
course, he had to take out a loan for the apartment, which costs
§20,000 without furniture, wall- and floor-covering. Just one apartment
left now, soon time to add another set?

"Who knows", indeed...
