Now before the story commences, let me introduce our founding generation.
First, the rolls were as follows:
Marital Structure: Second chance
Number of Children: Five
Income: Primary: Fire Fighter
Spouse 1: Collecting
Spouse 2: Freelance Photographer
Generation Goal: Hobby or Obsession
Miscellaneous Fun: Homemade
What this means is that over the course of the generation the primary sim has to have two spouses/partners (no, not at the same time!) and has to have at least one child with the first one. The primary sim will be a firefighter and his first partner will earn money from collecting. They can’t make any money outside of those careers. His second partner will be a photographer.
Their Hobby or Obsession is gardening. This means my sim and his partner must spend at least five sim hours a week gardening. They can’t make money from gardening.
Homemade in the misc fun means they can’t buy fruit, egetables or fish. They must grow/catch it. They may buy meat or dairy. They can only cook a meal if they have the ingredients and they can’t use quick meals.
As you can see the misc fun and the hobby work well together!

In addition to this I have a few rules that I’ve put in place in relation to my plot.
First is I’m doing a rainbow theme so each generation has its own colour. The first generation is white.
Second, because the ground and waters are still poisoned, sims may not grow anything in their gardens. They can grow plants indoors or garden in community gardens in bio-spheres. They also cannot go swimming outside of these bio-spheres.
Cloud and Moon Mosaic are my founding couple and they, along with their dog Snow, are tasked with discovering how to recolour their world.
Meet Cloud, my primary sim.
His traits are athletic, daredevil, family orientated, green thumb and handy. His lifetime goal is to raise five children.
Meet his partner Moon.
Moon is a gatherer, green thumb, loves the outdoors, natural cook and nurturing. Her lifetime goal is to be a renaissance sim.
Finally, Meet their dog Snow. Snow is a genius, adventurous and loyal.
I’m working on the first chapter and it should be up tomorrow.
