Since the topic is aliens at this point in time... I have a dilemma that will change the course of my neighborhood's story.

I have an alien sim (Hanuel) that is co-parenting, and was never romantically involved, with another sim, Tarek. I tried repeatedly to get the two together, but they weren't interested in each other. My problem is that Hanuel wants to fall in love. It's the one want that never disappears. He's very much a family sim, but he wants a relationship outside of his friendly co-parent and their children.

This is the decision that I have to make. Should Hanuel move into his own home or stay with Tarek and the children regardless?

The town is very small. Hanuel will never move far away from his children. In fact, I could honestly say, he would live down the street from them. Tarek and Hanuel are also best friends, and Tarek would be happy to allow the children to stay with Hanuel for short and long periods of time. It would also give Tarek the chance to find someone for himself. He's fooled around with one or two sims, but it never worked out.

There's also the twins to consider. Of all the kids in Sedona, these two are really smart (practically genius level), so I don't think they'd take it too bad, but I honestly don't know.

The main thing is that Hanuel makes a drastic decision based on what choice is made. But I don't know what to choose!

Is there a Sim that Hanuel might become involved with? I don't know that I would have Hanuel move until there is someone that Hanuel might want to be involved with Romantically. You might create a Sim in CAS for this purpose and then have Hanuel move.

I would certainly have Hanuel move if there is a Sim that Hanuel meets and this Sim is such that he could be involved with Romantically.

If there is really no one that Hanuel will likely be involved with Romantically and you don't provide one via CAS I would have Hanuel stay where he is.

Worse comes to worse and you are not sure if you should provide a Sim via CAS, choose randomly whether you are going to try the CAS route.

I hope that I helped.

BTW I just installed Sedona myself.

He doesn't have to move in order to find Someone to Love. He just has to get out to community lots and greet people. When he finds the one he loves, that sim can move in and they can be one big happy communal family.

True, but I have a difficult time seeing Tarek handle it easily. He had a hard enough time allowing Hanuel to move in to help with the children.

Hmm, well are apartments an option? Either a proper apartment lot or a dummy one (residential lot with detached units, kinda like some of the Veronaville houses). Maybe everyone should move to a place that better suits their lifestyle. Separate apartment units, a house with an in-law suite/renting unit, or a two family house could all work to give each sim their own spaces while allowing them to be close to the kids. They'd have privacy for romantic pursuits and wouldn't be in each other's business, but there'd always be a parent around to babysit. Would Tarek handle things better if there were more clearly defined boundaries like that?

I need some help too.
Cassandra and Mortimer caught Dina and Don with eachother, and both relationships ended. However, Don got Cassandra pregnant the day before. I have the sim blender to abort the pregnancy, but Cassandra wants to have a baby. What should I do?

Let her have it and sue Don for child support.

Hmmmm... that sounds nice, although I have no idea how to do that, and I don't play Don so he has little to no money. Well, it's surely work out, I guess.

If you have Monique's Child support mod, you would not have to do anything. It would be ON by default(pretty sure it is?) Then the child would receive Don's money every..week I think it is.
See, I do have the mod, but rarely have parents living apart..

@sugoisama
I use Monique's Child support Mod, works quite nicely. Install it and I think Don will send money regularly until his child is in College. It is on by by Default. I frequently have the child not living with the Father, lol.

Ancient Highway updated Monique's mod to work with AL. That mod is over here over at Simbology 3rd post down.

MQ update was in 2006. AH update was in 2009 (accordin to the mod files in the downloads).

Well, this is kind of a story dilemma.

I have been going back and forth with the idea of a fifth vacation hood. Right now, I have the three Maxis ones and one custom. (And yes, I made the custom one AFTER its mountain Maxis cousin, so I should be OK that way ... I must have read the Jawsusa post concerning that about twenty times!)

Right now, I have a beach version of the bunaglow hotel I have in the contest (actually, the beach version came before the mountain version) and the lighthouse. I have a smallish terrain to work with ... enough for buildings, but not so, so much that it will take me months to finish. I have some beach lot templates I can use. I flatten beach lots because it's more versatile and leads to less crashing. I add hills and other elevation changes later, if desired.

As many of you know, you can play a motel/hotel in a main hood. There are limitations. You don't get a tour guide (I don't miss 'im), and you can't leave the motel/hotel to go to a community lot. So you'd pretty much have to stay on-premises.

Problem is, I downloaded so many cool tropical plants from PBK. I could make a second shopping district and have farms and farms of pineapples, papayas, etc.. Having them in a vacation hood limits the time you can play with these plants. (Sunni was truly a genius when it came to taking this game in new directions. I still miss her.) That could open one line of possibilities.

On the other hand, a vacation hood could be fun. While I don't play vacation lots all the time, I play them often and enjoy them. Sims could stay in the little bungalow motel for now, and I can make other hotels/motels, or move some of the ones I've made over to the new vacation hood. Once I stop cursing at Freezy the housekeeper and fix any Freezy issues as much as humanly possible (I can eventually get it to about 98% fixed ... you can't really guarantee 100%), and barring any BV nonsense (unfortunately, Freezy is not the only problem with BV), I almost wish I can join my Sims when they go on a trip!

I'm really back and forth about whether I want a fifth vacation hood or a second shopping hood with main-hood hotels. The advantage to the shopping hood, I guess, is that Sims could BUY a lot of pineapples and papayas from local farmers. The shopping hood, though, will require more Sims to farm the plants, though some of my Uni students could go over there. But I haven't even filled my main hood or my shopping hood yet! There is plenty of room for lots. I'm making (and occasionally downloading, since I don't have time to make ALL of them!) as many as I can!

Sooo ... would you folks lean toward a fifth tropical vacation hood or a second shopping hood that happens to be tropical? I guess the shopping hood could be some sort of territory or something.

Thanks to ALL free-site creators, admins and mods.

RIP Sunni ... truly a ray of light.

I know very little about Vacation hoods or setting up hotels in one of the non-vacation hoods. But making it a shopping district with hotels opens up other interesting possibilities down the road; you could still treat it as a different country and settle playable natives and expats there down there road.

Also gonna look at those plants now...

I would go with a Shopping 'hood, so that Sims could buy a lot of pineapples and papayas from the local Farmers. If I was going to do this I would have several Playables run some of the Farms
