This is why I do not advertise or beg people to read my legacies or stories or whatever. I am not devoted to any version of my game apparently, and I fiddle with it a lot. That means, I have to do complete reinstalls now and then. So currently I am running a Royal Kingdom Challenge using the Maxis TriHood (found at MATY). In it, Pleasantview, Veronaville, and Strangetowns are all different kingdoms (with Downtown and Bluewater being Outland areas common for all). Also, I am now no longer using Enayla defaults and am enjoying a much more Maxis-like appearance for my sims. Also, as this is a Maxis hood I'm using Maxis-like rules instead of any actual historical style rules. Except I wanted to use all my cool historical content, so I decided that the different kingdoms have different historical styles as their traditional costume/decor/style. Hence, Pleasantview will be vaguely Victorian, Veronaville will have Regency style, and Strangetown will have Medieval. Outlands will have Maxis style. So, for starters, here's a pic of King Mortimer and Queen Bella of Pleasantview.

Today is an auspicious day in the venerable Goth house.
The Grilled Cheese aspiration is repetitive and funny, right? Well, for the sims in my world it is their version of O.C.D. It is an anxiety disorder that focuses on Grilled Cheese, which is the ultimate Maxis comfort food. Unlike other mental problems on Sim, the Grilled Cheese Syndrome does not respond to usual treatment and is almost never cured. Recently, the severity of Grilled Cheese Syndrome has been lessened by the new Aspiration Treatment. This substitution exercise allows for the afflicted sim to gain the comfort of the Grilled Cheese but also allows for other interests to emerge. It has allowed for a marked improvement for the G.C.S. sufferers. They live fuller lives without every waking thought revolving around Grilled Cheese....mmmm....warm....toasty...chees
