I had played most of the household now. I'm amazed with this neighborhood Jawusa. This is really refreshing to play. I always dreamed to make THAT big family tree. So much love drama there, this is even better than Emerald Heights.

So, it was not confusing? Lol!
That means a lot to me! Thank you so much!

I thought I went too far with second cousins once removed... and relations like that
Not to mention that there are 9? pregancies sneaked in this 'hood. I thought that was too much. Lol!

The problem is... I don't even know myself who is pregnant and with whom... I simply forgot...

Yeah... about that pregnancies and fathers... I know just Don's children and that's all!
For now i played every household for day and Queen's household for a week. So, there is a lot to learn about them. And I also noticed that Cassiopeia II did not appeared as ghost at all! But third one was haunting on every birthday of her daughter.

And one question about Mortimer. How long he is supposed to live now? (Found answer in SimPE)
And about NPCs. Why is so hard to get alien gardener for Royal families?
And the final one, how to marry widowed wives who still have their dead husbands in family trees?

Well, I realised that I fenced-in shrubs... which is why they are inaccesible. I have to remove that little fence.
As for the wives, although they have their dead husbands in family trees, they can still re-marry. The lines will disconnect then and reconnect to the new spouse. Don't worry!

And yes, little Cassiopeia turned out really cute! I love her, too!

@Jawusa

About NPC, you maybe misunderstood me. I was meaning that I cannot get alien gardener to work on royal estate, not that they cant reach shrubs. I have mod to fix it, so no problem. There is a lot new generated NPC by my game. Is there some solution for it? I would love to have all alien NPCs
And for Moon Goth, I want to pair him with the queen, but im afraid that their children should loose the eyes. Or there is chance for alien eyes for them?
And final question, I saw that there are no threads for posting stories from this hood, can I make it then?

Well, the game usually generates 3 NPCs of the same type... with installing the antiredudancy mod, you are reducing the number to 1.

But they are already in your neighborhood now. The only thing you can do is install a mod where you can choose a NPC to hire.
http://www.insimenator.org/index.ph...c,102035.0.html

As for Moon and Cassiopeia, well, by default, black eyes are as dominant as brown eyes... so you‘d get a 50/50 chance. If you really want their child to have black eyes, you‘d have to save before the queen gives birth. Then you can exit the household without saving until you get a child with black eyes.

You can share your stories here. I‘d love to see what you did.

@Jawusa
Just so you know, the Sky Mod download link appears to be broken.

Edit:
Apparently the sky mod is also contained within the latest cc download, which would explain why the first link for the sky mod only has gone dead. I didn't think to check before today because I had stupidly assumed that, since it was offered separately at the beginning, it wouldn't have been included in ulterior downloads.
Since I wouldn't have time to properly play the neighborhood these days anyway, I refrained from actually downloading the stuff - which would have allowed me to notice much sooner, I admit.

As an apology, here are pics of what I was originally trying to test with the sky mod:
Whether or not it would look good with bright pink ground, and what would it look like with the semi-transparent recolors of Lowedeus' Great Sky of Totalitarianism?

(That sky object, or similar ones, could be a good option for someone who wants a green sky for Aileen Landing, but not for, say, sub-neighborhoods on other planets, or other neighborhoods on the same save. The opaque recolors are quite effective for that, although the lighting might be a bit different from what we're used to - I haven't tested that in gameplay yet, so I'm not sure how strong the effect is.)

There are 2 reasons why I didn't make the sky as a neighborhood object.

1) The custom sky objects cannot be used in BG. Because the feature of seeing neighboring lots came with Nightlife and later. Since my aim is to build a BG friendly neighborhood, I'll also provide a BG friendly neighborhood sky.
2) Even if I did that.. with sky objects, you can only have one texture and this is at daylight. But I want different skies for night, autumn, rainy days or snowy days... I want the gas giant to be almost invsible during daytime... invisible during autumn and glowingly bright at night...

As for the pink ground, that looks quite intersting... maybe not that bright but a pinkish tone of sand.

Finally found time to look at hood again.

My opinions:
1)I don't think that having NPC's as relatives is safe for game.
2)Only default alien skintone - a lot of simmers use defaults - maybe use full face make up instead.
3)There are a lot of sims with romance aspiration - and that makes them very similar to play.
4)More rocks between alien and colony part - maybe also less roads.
5)Currently there are 13 alien families and 7 colony families. For me the perfect ratio would be about 75% of alien and 25% of colony families.

Good luck working on this hood and future projects.

Having NPCs as relatives is not particularly important and won't harm your neighbourhood.

Thanks for the explanation, Jawusa. I wasn't aware those objects aren't BG-compatible.
I think I might not have explained my idea very well, however: what I meant is that if someone wants the default green sky for Aileen Landing, but also wants to attach a more Earth-like subneighborhood, they could use an opaque recolor of the sky object in that subneighborhood to hide the green sky, thus removing the "problem" created by the alien sky being a default without losing the features that make it awesome.
I wasn't pushing for a sky object to be made at all but suggesting a solution for those who might hesitate to use the default because of their other neighborhoods.

As for the semi-transparent recolors, I just wanted to see if they would look good with your default as a background. They do, but I bet one might get some truly spectacular results with differently colored clouds… Now I think I'm going to be looking at object recoloration tutorials in the near future.

I was bored... so I made two new lots for Aileen Landing.

I tried to give that restaurant some kind of Saturn vibe... not sure if it looks good with rings? Should I remove that? You’d require Nightlife or OFB to make it function as a real restaurant... at the moment, it’s still BG compatible.

The other lot is for the Natives... it’s a mysterious hideout in the outskirts of the village. It’s a peaceful place, but it’s also the same place where the two Queens were found brutally murdered... By the why, what’s that bizarre spiral near the mysterious statues?

Pictures are attached.

@grammapat

Upgraded versions of these lots would be included in the all EPs version.

If I could I would use the witch stuff from Apartment Life instead, implying that a witch leaves nearby... but in BG, it‘s hard.
