MMO: Belladonna Cove  
I finally got the downloads for [ profile] meetme2theriver 's Megahood working again (which is a thing of beauty, you can create your own Megahood with shopping district templates - it's so awesome!).
I've tried to keep all the lots (or all the defining ones anyway, I had to throw out a couple in Belladonna Cove because there just wasn't space for them in my lay-out, as well as being standard boring EAxian block buildings) and I might even try my hand at making some of them over.

Fiddling around with all those hoods (which are old friends to me by now) is a great change of pace from the BaCC rotation. I'm not currently planning on playing the Megahood just yet, I mainly want to do makeovers for the time being: hood, lots and eventually Sims :)
I used to dislike Belladonna Cove when I first got Apartment Life, and I couldn't really get into it. It's grown on me though, and I like the different districts and stuff. Anyways, enough rambling, on to the picspam!

Round 1: Belladonna Cove (Part 2)  
Schoolwork is going well which makes me a happy bunny ^^ I've been super-productive today, and if I can keep up the pace for the rest of the week I think I'll do allright in my exam (which is on monday the 23rd).

Anyways! I decided to lump in the rest of the Belladonna Cove updates in this post, so it might be a bit longer than usual. Lots of fun families tho: the Cookes, the Baldwins, the Patels, the Riley/Cho household and the Cordials. Chastity Gere ends up in one of these again, but I only played her for half a week in the Contender household, and for half in this one. She's still technically a week ahead of everyone, but I doubt anyone beside me really gives a toss, so we'll just gloss over that shall we?

First up is Julien Cooke, who has found true love in the guise of Jodie Larson. I cannot wait to see what their babies are going to look like :D

Round 1: Belladonna Cove (Part 1)  
I played part of Belladonna Cove late at night when I was dogtired, and really should've gotten to bed instead of playing Sims. That probably explains why I thought it would be a good idea to give Geoff Rutherford a harem. *coughs* Afterwards, I wasn't really happy with that idea anymore, but what has been played stays played, as I try to cheat as little as possible and quitting without saving is part of that.

So, yeah. The Rutherford Residence was (shortly) the place to be for romance sims, with no jealousy enabled and ACR running rampant. First victim happy occupant was Sharon Wirth.

Belladonna Cove: Hood Makeover  
Belladonna Cove looked really nice, especially from the houses (I love my simmies living in an actual town/city, rather than in the middle of nowhere - with the exception of Strangetown of course). I couldn't resist shuffling the houses around though, and the 'city' bit looked rather... lacklustre, so I gave it an update as well.

I'm not sure I'll be keeping the apartments, seeing as I find them awkward to play. I'll either build some new ones or move families out to proper houses.
