I had a pretty good neighborhood going, but then decided to do a major CC purge. Despite my best intentions I soon lost patience with flashing blue clutter, missing walls and the serious fuglification caused by random reverting to Maxis skins, hideous accidental clothing combinations and facemasks gone askew. The whole sorry lot of them wound up in the Recycle Bin, and after that there was only one thing for it: a whole new neighborhood, right from scratch. With all my CC clean and tidy for the first time and more default replacements than ever before I decided to start not with couples or even a big group, just three very different women starting out at university and hoping to meet some now-less-fug townies while they're there.( And you can finance your bones and your kidneys... )
...I am quite surprised to note that after I exited the game sorting those snaps and putting this entry together took me just over an hour. I have a new respect for those of you who do long, drawn-out legacies and picspams! I have all this coming to me [laughs] I'll put together posts for the beginning of the story proper tomorrow. zzzzzzzzzzzzz.
