The holidays are upon us, and we have a lot of excitement going on at the Unofficial BBS! Here’s a reminder of the events that we are currently running:
Round Robin Legacy Challenge [here]
Generation 3 is about to be wrapped up, and soon we’ll be voting for the Generation 4 heir! But we still have a few unclaimed generations, so if anybody is interested in signing up, we’d love to have your participation.
Tutorial Week & 12 Days of Christmas [here]
This is an event for creators, new and old! We’re requesting and making CC tutorials, and then for the 12 Days of Christmas, we’re creating gifts with our new knowledge to share with one another. Signups are currently ongoing. The more the merrier!
Monthly Writing Challenge
The month writing challenge for December has been postponed to January, since we have a lot of other events going on this month. Look out for the new prompt to be posted in a few weeks!
So I participated in a Round Robin and moved the founder into Oclaire Pass, so now her offspring (well, Aminat “moved away” [i.e. I killed her off] because she was selected as the next heir) are part of my BACC. I’m just going to throw all of their ‘official photographs’ in one post, as not to spam y’all.

Hi Sam! \o thanx for the pretty hair. You doing Nano or too busy?
Hey, Jean :) You’re welcome! Glad you like it. Nah, I’m not doing NaNo this year. It was sooo stressful last year, and I’ve been completely overwhelmed with my coursework/job this semester. Eh. Oh, well.
How about you? Giving it a go?
[Belated] 400 Followers Gift!
I’ve been so inactive here since the start of the school year, but since this week had been slow in terms of work, I was inspired to finally create the followers gift that I’ve been talking about since August! Enjoy, and thank you for following me. :)
This is NewSea Canalis done with natural and unnatural gradients in Pooklets V3 textures. I also used Trapping’s twists texture to put in a few braids. Four retextures total, binned/familied by their base color, and elders do go gray (mail bomb, linked to black). Mesh is included, all ages by Martini. Files compressed, clearly labeled, and tooltipped.
And I also did the hair in Pooklet’s, Io’s, and Lilith’s natural colors. Binned, familied, elders go gray (Pooklet’s to mail bomb, Io’s to pipe bomb, and Lilith’s to ritsuko) with the grays linked to black. Mesh is included, all ages by Martini. Files compressed, clearly labeled, and tooltipped.
Hi there :) I don’t mind at all. The house numbers are from here. Enjoy!
The same anon who requested that I upload Callum asked if I would share Reuben. I know I said I’d try to get him up Friday afternoon, so I apologize for being a couple days late. Enjoy! :D
Reuben Carr is a second-generation Sim born of two townies, so his genes aren’t as diverse as Callum’s, but he’s still a handsome little fella. In my game he’s a Pisces (6/7/8/3/7) and a Pleasure Sim, but you can do with him however you’d like.
All of his CC is included, except for his eyebrows because he takes my defaults, and thus will take yours. If interested, I use these by Trapping/Poppet (which means I’ve been using MM eyebrows, what?!).
Yeah, sure, I can upload Reuben! Just give me a few days, all right? I’m swamped with schoolwork, but I’ll probably be able to get to it sometime Friday afternoon.
Also, yay! Callum babies! I’ve haven’t had time to play lately, so he still hasn’t had any babies in my game yet, but I think he’s coming up soon in my rotation.
I was tagged by tumpercat for this meme…thing.
1. What is your current favorite song?
I listen to the same two hundred+ songs from no sooner than about eight years ago, so I don’t really have a ‘favorite’ song. I do really like "Great" by Tony Rogers (yes, from the dog food commercial) because I think it’s very, very sad, and I listen to it when I write.
2. What’s the most interesting thing you did over the summer?
Uh. All I did was work and take a summer course. And have bonfires on the weekends. So, yeah, that, I suppose.
3. Do you have a favorite sim at the moment?
It’s a tie between Reuben Carr
and Callum Sands
though Reuben might just be pulling ahead slightly (he’s much better looking than that picture gives him credit for).
4. Have you ever made (or attempted to make) a sim based on someone from real life?
I made Johnny Depp.
5. Do you have any funny stories from your childhood?
Just sad ones.
6. Favorite TV show and character?
Gilmore Girls, for sure. And as much as I really love Lorelai, I have to say that Emily is probably my favorite character. Kelly Bishop did an awesome job.
7. What hood are you currently playing in?
My custom ‘hood, Oclaire Pass.
(This picture is terribly out-of-date, but it’s the most recent picture I have. It doesn’t do the town ~justice~)
8. Are you excited, disappointed, or indifferent about TS4?
9. Any guilty pleasures?
Wearing pajama bottoms? Is that a guilty pleasure?
10. Cats or dogs?
Cats! I love cats, and dogs scare me.
