I've been on the game a bit today though; made a couple of new sims. I haven't planned out their backstories yet though.
Hopefully I'll get a lot of the neighbourhood done by the end of this weekend then I can finally start playing, I want to move in some of my little simmies but I know the minute I do I'll become incredibly frustrated and unhappy with my work and start over, again. I'm sick of doing that ^_^;
I also built another apartment complex; I haven't quite finished the exterior but I'm pretty happy with the structure as a whole.
