We are restarting Fellowship United again. I lost the last one. I haven't had the best luck with the Fellowship families but I love them and miss them from time to time.
What I Did: I started a neighborhood and added a downtown. I exited the game and deleted all the character files. I downloaded and installed all the Fellowship Families from the Sims 2 Fellowship facebook page that can be found here. One family wouldn't work but oh well. Some of these families I don't think I've ever even seen before. Such fun. I went back into the game and added a custom shopping district. I put all the families into that shopping district making sure that all lots had a phone.
Now I had decisions to make. I threw out the idea of another prosperity neighborhood. I want to eventually play all these families in one form or another. I was going to do a legacy using one of the single sim families as my starting point. I tossed that out pretty quickly.
So, what am I doing? A neighborhood challenge (of sorts). I started with a single sim (shown above). I am going to attempt to link all the Fellowship Families together by marriage and/or birth. The idea came from Rachel's Neighborhood Challenge. I am, however, not really using any rules. I'm just making it up as I go along. Also, on a side challenge, I want to try to get a child out of every Fellowship sim if possible. Yes, I mean all the elders, both male and female, too.
Fair warning for those who have found this (cause I haven't advertised as of yet) I started the first week (yes 7 days) in February and didn't finish it until July. But I'm on a bit of a roll now so I thought it might be time to start documenting if only for myself.
