Sim site of the week: Lakeside Heights

Laura has been writing the epic tales of life in the community of Lakeside Heights for several years now, so, as with many of the best TS2 stories, there is an awful lot to catch up on – but it’s well worth it.

There are dozens of families and individuals in LH, all of whom Laura brings wonderfully to life.  She also has an excellent strategy of rolling random events for her sims that challenge her to write and play in ways she might not otherwise choose – it keeps the story on a knife edge and is something I definitely want to incorporate if I can get a similar hood going in TS3 sometime.

The opening chapters might be a little hard going for those of us who aren’t very TS2 literate but the story soon gets flowing and you’ll begin to forget it’s a TS2 blog and simply enjoy it as the tales of one of the most fascinating and dramatic neighbourhoods this side of a soap!

  1. Awww, how sweet is this!?! Thank you so much for your kind words! I’m very glad you enjoyed it.

    I can’t claim the random events idea though, we’ve all been doing that for a long time. I encourage everyone to try it though, because it certainly livens up the story 🙂

  2. And I’d like to jump in as a long time reader of Laura’s stories that you really don’t need to read back. Her story is so easy to fall into, so don’t feel intimidated to just start reading it, even if you start from both ends or just read the links she provides at the bottom of the entries. 🙂
