Questions and Answers
I hear people say big families are fun, but mine is small and they drive me insane just in their small numbers. I can't imagine it's that great for a kid growing up with a ton of siblings. They would have to share everything and never get any privacy and they wouldn't be able to shower without someone else knocking the door down wanting their turn.
I am the ninth of eleven children. I LOVE my big family. When I was little there was always someone to play with… Usually four or five or six people to play with. It was like having friends over to play every single day. Every night was a sleepover. My family loves games, all sorts of games, and there are some games that are just way more fun playing with 8 or 9 people than 2 or 3. My family also loves to sing together. My mom or one of my sisters would always play the piano and after a short time we would all be gathered around singing in four part harmony, and there were enough people that no one had to sing alone. Holidays were always full of commotion and happiness. And now that we are all older we get together and have family reunions. When we were all still living at home, for some reason we would all end up sitting on the stairs to talk late into the night, and now at family reunions, we put our kids to bed, and we all end up on the stairs again. It is just great.
Learning to share isn't a bad thing. I think it makes you less selfish as an adult. You have to learn to empathize and work well with others. I think sharing everything made us closer as a family. We didn't have much of the sibling rivalry that I often saw with smaller families, and when there was a little of it, it was resolved quickly. And as for showering, we had a good system so everyone got their time, and no one got interrupted.
Fun filled family trips largely depends on the whole hearted participation of each member of the troupe. What ever you take, what ever you plan; there is bound to be some inconvenience, different routines, collective moves irrespective of individual condition, need of mutual understanding and co-operation, likes and dislikes…..
The foremost thing is mental preparation of one and all for all such kind of situations and commitment for staying cool, happy, problem solving and accommodating nature.
Rest other basics like well planning, travel light, enjoying local culture, food and conditions; limiting personal routine needs-if required etc come very handy and meaningful.
Hi guys im just wondering i just installed family funn stuff on the sims 2 and i was just wondering how you can unlock all the extras it gave you with the pack e.g. Cars/ Garage/ Awnings/ Elevators / etc if anybody has an answer please write bak to me thanx guys…
Can you list all the games you have? All expansion packs and stuff packs? Because Family Fun Stuff doesn't actually give you cars, garages, awnings, elevators, etc.
Cars and garages comes with Nightlife. If you don't have Nightlife installed but you have any newer (released after Nightlife by EA) expansion pack then you can download cars and the garage stuff you need directly from EA and it will work in your game, but I don't think that includes Family Fun stuff because it's just a stuff pack, not an expansion pack. It might though, so you could go to EA's sims 2 site, then click on Exchange, then on Objects and you'll find the cars and what you need to make garages with. Make sure you get both though because you can't put a car down on a sims' lot unless you put a driveway down. The driveway, garage door and driveway extension piece (garage floor) are all together in one download.
Awnings and elevators actually first came with Open for Business. It may have been included in a newer expansion pack like Bon Voyage or Free Time, but it was not actually installed in Family Fun stuff.
I think the reason you assume there is a way to "unlock" it is because you see the icons for that stuff but they are grayed out, right? Yes, those icons are found in buy and build mode because EA released Family Fun stuff AFTER both Nightlife and Open for Business. So they had to put the icons in the game so that people who already had N/L and OFB would still be able to see those things after installing Family Fun stuff. But they are not actually IN the stuff pack. You must have the expansion packs that those things were included in to be able to get them.
