This happened a long time ago, I don’t have screenshots but I do have a vivid memory of it.This is a true account and I am sharing this in case anyone had ever come across this before. 
It was a family of four and the mum was expecting a third child, nothing out of the ordinary at first but as I progressed through the game I noticed strange things happening when my neighbours disappeared in my lot- They Faded away and never appeared in their own lots again.
I let that incident pass caus I had no intention of  playing pre-made sims and dismissed it as a unique glitch until a similar thing occurred with the Mum the next day. I tried saving her by leaving game unsaved and returning to the lot several time, but that didn’t work so I gave up, her delivery was suppose to have been due on that day :( …
The Dad sim, having the family aspiration ,was obviously distressed after losing his wife and unborn baby and left to raise two kids on his own .
A couple of days went by, the Dad sim was still depressed So to cheer him up I took him and his kids on a day out in the park to spend some family time. When the family returned to their lot in the evening the Dad had a breakdown-That’s when I realised THE KIDS FUCKING DISAPPEARED FROM THE THUMBNAIL ! I desperately tried reloading the game many times but like their mum they kept fucking fading away.There was nothing else that could have been done at that point, I had spent hours wasting playing the sims and just gave up.
I left the poor Dad sim alone but what creeped me out was what I had discovered after leaving the lot and I SHIT YOU NOT THIS IS WHAT I READ IN THE DESCRIPTION:
 ” The sudden restlessness had taken  the household  into a different course. Will Lawrence ever bounce back after the disappearance of his wife and kids?”
I DID NOT WRITE THIS !!! THE GAME AUTOMATED A NEW BACKSTORY AFTER IT KILLED MY WIFE AND KIDS!!! I never had this happen to my game before and never came across one like it after I deleted the household.

WOW THAT TOTALLY DOESN’T SOUND LIKE A LIE AT ALL.

Their game is haunted.  They need a priest to bless each of their TS2 install CDs.  Let me know if the CDs start spewing pea soup when the holy water hits them, k?

:) I have that mug too!

We can be mug twins!  <3

Jean @ getmygameon.tumblr.com recently posted a lovely pic of her Starbucks drink.  I blame her for my coffee cravings.

So.  This bathroom.

I have 2 bathrooms in my house.  This is the “office bathroom”… the one upstairs.  We pretty much only use it while we’re working because almost everything we do while we’re not at work is done downstairs.  Therefore it doesn’t get cleaned as often as it probably should.

The master bathroom downstairs is just a shower, not a full tub, but that’s the one we use for bathing most of the time.

Cue today, I wanted a proper bath.  It’s been a long, tough week, I wanted to break out the colored bath beads & the bubbles & all of the pumpkin-flavored things & drink tea while I relaxed in the tub.  BECAUSE I’M A GIRL, THAT’S WHY.

But the bathroom was absolutely stupid levels of gross (see the Before pics on the left) to the point where trying to take a bath in it would have been icky.

So I got out all of my cleaning supplies.  I got the dirt-ring out of the tub, cleaned the sink off, moved the recycling out of the sink (I blame men for that one), moved the stack of books to the bookshelf downstairs (seriously, idk why he needs reading material in the bathroom), cleaned out the trash can, & cleaned a thick layer of dust off of the walls, cleaned the window & the mirror, mopped the floors, replaced the towels, & straightened the rugs.  It took me about an hour.

& then I put on a pumpkin face mask had me my damn fall-themed bubble bath, which you can see in the last 2 pics.  Complete with a Tardis-themed mug full of tea.  SO WORTH IT.

35 Bard Boulevard in Veronaville.

I totally get that a lot of these look nothing like the originals but… they’re “inspired & in roughly the same place” not “made over”.

Even though I haven’t been showing pics of the bedrooms (which are mostly unfurnished currently) most of these houses have been 3bed/2bath.

hafiseazale answered your post: Hey if anyone ever makes PSDs or PNGs …

There are a couple of dirty states available at modthesims.info/forumdi… All are not under plumbing.

Yeah I’ve been there, it’s not what I was looking for (& the one dirty state template they have of a toilet is… not great.)  More interested in all of the showers & tubs, but thank you!

Hey if anyone ever makes PSDs or PNGs of the TS2 plumbing objects’ dirty state overlay, that is something I would use the hell out of.  So if it’s something you can do, & you do it, let me know okay?

46 Bard Boulevard in Veronaville.

I think I’m going to extend all of these out in the back with the Lot Adjuster.  They just feel like they should have bigger backyards for some reason.

45 Bard Boulevard in Veronaville.

Actually did the inside because there wasn’t just acres of lawn to play with here.

Headcanon:  Veronaville is an historic town, with most of the East Side buildings dating back to the Renaissance.  Before the citizens of Veronaville became prosperous many of the renovations & restorations to the houses were done by Sim State’s Historical Society, who opted to put a functional modern twist on the traditional iron, wood, plaster, & stone of the time.  So although only the outside of the house is controlled by the HOA, the insides of the houses are mostly kept in similar styles too… at least as far as the wall treatments, flooring, & fixtures go.

80 Bard Boulevard in Veronaville.

Again, just pretty much the exterior.

Headcanon:  East Veronaville has a truly insane HOA, with rules that even the stuck-up Veronaville citizens gossip about.  Goneril Capp heads the HOA committee & takes it way too seriously.

95 Bard Boulevard in Veronaville.

Landscaped the hell out of it, haven’t bothered with the inside yet.

More of Veronaville’s Town Hall, this time the courthouse.  Behind the double doors, there’s a judge chamber, a small unisex bathroom, & the jury’s deliberation room.

Playing around with building in the Uberhood.  The Veronaville Market is becoming Veronaville Town Hall, which is now home to this fun little place.

This is the Office Of Fair Folk Affairs, a self-contained office on the right-side first floor of Veronaville Town Hall, because obviously that was something that needed to exist whether or not I ever specifically send a Sim there.  Basically if you’re a magical being with pointy ears & need something, anything at all, this is where you’d go.  It’s a small office with a reception/waiting area & 2 private consultation areas to meet with your fairy specialist.

I think Oberon would volunteer here 3-4 days a week.  Titania strikes me as the type who couldn’t be arsed to do community service unless she was court-ordered to.

Could you explain the whole "i don’t really have depression, i’m actually just a lazy piece of shit" = you've got depression, thing? It rang a bell for me and I'd like to know what you meant. Thanks :)

one of the most insidious things about depression is it doesn’t ‘feel’ like depression. even when you have it, you know you have it, you’ve been diagnosed—you still find yourself thinking, no, nope, this isn’t it, can’t be. it’s like the mental illness equivalent of that knight in monty python that keeps going ‘it’s a flesh wound! i’m fine, really! this is just a scratch, i’ll be up in a moment!’ even after all his limbs have been hacked off and he’s lying there helpless.

one of the most common narratives around it is that no one realizes they have depression until they start checking off what they consider to be normal aspects of their lives—and personal character flaws— against the checklist for depression symptoms. really key symptoms include:

  1. lack of motivation
  2. constant tiredness, even exhaustion
  3. finding no pleasure or satisfaction in activities they used to like, or that they know should feel good
  4. not seeing the point of doing anything
  5. increased and even unmanageable anxiety and fearfulness

any one of these symptoms drains away your ability to do work, cope with setbacks, overcome difficulties, or stop procrastinating. multiple symptoms create a pretty perfect storm of intertia and anxious self-loathing. you stop doing anything because it’s hard to get going, unpleasant while you’re at it, and afterwards there’s no reward. why bother, right? and when you’re always tired you get conservative of what little energy you can manage, and when you only feel emotions on the ‘empty to miserable’ spectrum you get really aversive to making mistakes. the whole mess very quickly and very insidiously loads every single thing in your life with toxic emotional baggage.   

and then someone says to you— or you say to yourself, ‘stop being lazy’. and that haunts you forever. because you’re lazy! the work is so easy. everyone else does it. everyone but you, you lazy asshole, lying around all day not doing this totally easy thing that you should be able to but aren’t. you don’t have depression! of course not. mental illness is for victims, is for blameless innocent people who can’t be blamed for being so understandably sick. but you can be blamed. you have a character flaw, and it’s getting worse by the minute. 

and that is how people who have been diagnosed, who have been medicated, who have been through therapy, can still spend all day hiding in bed and chewing themselves up over their failure to just somehow magically be a good, healthy, useful person, instead of treating themselves to a sick day and saying ‘yup! it’s depression. i need to be kind to myself.’

Sorry for the non-sims post on my simblr, but this is really really good and I want lots of people to see it, plus we simmers seem to be rather prone to being crazy so perhaps some of you guys will be interested. :)

I want to add to this. When you have depression it’s not a rational illness. It’s not like you can rationally say ‘Oh I’ve got depression therefore this, this and that’. It hits you in your emotions - often long before you recognise that it has. It can go on for weeks eroding your self-esteem, fun, alertness, cognition before you recognise what’s happening. By that time, being kind to yourself it’s already too late. You don’t have the emotional energy for it, so like an insomniac, you hit yourself with the equivalent of caffeine to keep you up to your tasks during the day - because self-abuse does give you impetus to move. However… it’s taking water from a drying well, and then when the well is empty there’s nothing left. You’re a husk that depression inhabits. If you’re medicated or you’re familiar with it, you can train yourself or be trained to recognise the signs and go ‘Yup this is depression’. But if you’re a first-timer it go for years until some kind soul actually points it out to you. So if you’re finding things are getting less fun, you’d prefer to stay at home alone than go out (and you’re an extrovert) - then go to a gp.

Other signs of depression:

1. Sleeping disturbance - under or over sleeping.

2. Weight disturbance - losing/gaining weight… when you haven’t been trying to do either.

3. Noise sensitivity - Loud noises startle you.

4. Cognition disturbance - loss of concentration, thinking through fog

5. Emotional Disturbance - short temper, anxious, numbness, sadness, over-reaction to emotional events.

According to the professionals, any 3 of these signify depression - so you don’t even have to feel sad to have depression. Sadness = depression is the biggest myth in the mental health world.

So if your friend isn’t enjoying life the way they used to, and have no good reason why - get them to a gp. You’ll spot it before they do.

BTW - I’ve had depression since I was in my teens and am now 52 - so this is coming from MY experience. It may be different to others, but I suspect that it’s not that different. :)
