My main sim wants to be "Struck by lightning"! Rolling on the Floor Laughing



Also, what does that little bar by the portrait mean?

That's the temperature. If you get too cold, you get the plague. If you get too hot, you can either spontaneously combust or get heat stroke.

Aha! So that's how they incorporated the negative effects of seasons in Seasons!

It's corny, but at least it's sort of reasonable.

Well, they went a little overboard... basically, the testers played it enough to ensure that it "works as designed," but not enough to see that it's not "intrusive" into game play. Hacks are coming!

Going a "little overbaord" is sort of a SIMS/Maxis trademark though, isn't it?

*snicker*

Actually, it seems right on par with other Wants, like "Defeat Grim Reaper, Be Saved From Death, etc". (One of my personal favs has always been the one about wanting a family member to get abducted by aliens. Too bad they couldn't have made it "Mother-In-Law Abducted By Aliens".......just for some added family dynamics! )

Now that I am back up & running* I will FINALLY be able to get SIMS 2 re-enabled, and will (hopefully) soon get to join the rest of you Seasons-players!!! (Still kinda waiting for an InTEEN update though....)

-ZW

*I had a most frustratingly bizzar expiriance with my (now running) new PC. How frustrating? I 1st picked it up on March 8th. On March 27th, it was fit for using. It's a loooooong story! I may have to post it somewhere, just to vent!

I wonder if they got that lightning gag from the move Twister? A couple of the storm chasers in that movie were talking about how they'd like to get struck by lightning, just once, to see what it's like.
