P.s if the town just the same as france?
Kind of - the town you get off the exchange is France with more houses, and all the rabbitholes added, then I did some editing (a lot of the houses are really expensive because there's several buildings on one lot, but most of them are pretty empty - if you put hidden building markers in the extra buildings it makes them more affordable) and added some bars. I turned a big house into an Egyptian themed lounge and added a dive bar.
kirkuk, I was not expecting this. Your story is... refreshing, and I'm not even sure why Maybe it's the malnourished and slightly lazy endearing protagonist or Maryam, who I find oddly pretty, or the sarcastic Adele (I know it's your story but please, PLEASE don't make them romantic interests... or at least not right away. It'll make the plot more interesting. I think she's more of a friend-type anyways, plus she's a newly-wed...).

Good job! I'm waiting for an update.
And don't worry about Adele - she's the sane one in this story so she's definitely not interested.
Karine looks too much like Maryam so I adjusted her mouth. My Sims all have the same mouth. It’s not even a good mouth.
I'm sorry if this will sound insensitive, but I died laughing when I read about the mouths I love your sims. They look different (in a good way, of course )... and French (no stereotypes intended ). Once again, awesome update
PS: I kind of wish I could just infinitely hang around cafes&bars like Nour...
Yeah, I think the similarity thing is because I tend to make Sims by choosing a Sim then altering them. So I end up with whole towns based off variations on the same Sim, and I don't realise until it's full of creepy identical children...
This is Adele’s house. Her husband Laurent is waiting outside because...
It’s date night!
“Oh Laurent, they are beautiful. I'll put them into the garden next to the one hundred flowers we already have.”
“Brigitte has come down with something, so I might have to go to work for a little while after the meal. I shouldn’t be too late.”
“Just come home as soon as possible, okay? I barely see you these days.”
“I promise I’ll be home before midnight. Love you.”
(yes, that is two children doing homework and a sleeping gnome in the background. What else? What you CAN’T see here is that there were actually three sleeping gnomes, in a circle.)
“What the hell Adele? It’s three in the morning. What happened to coming home early? I’ve been waiting for hours.”
“I’m sorry - there were so many customers, I couldn’t get away.”
“Whatever, I’m fed up of hearing it. I’ll sleep on the couch tonight.”
The next morning, Adele goes to the café.
“Nour! Why is it that the one morning I actually need to find you, you aren’t here.”
“I’m at work!”
“Since when did you work?”
“Since yesterday. What’s the matter?”
“Ugh, never mind. Just issues with Laurent. The usual. Seriously, since when did you have a job?”
“I told you, since yesterday. Why don’t you go to the gym and beat up the training dummy instead of verbally assaulting me on the phone?”
So she does.
You’d think she’d be good at this but it turns out she’s really really not.
When she gets back to the house, Laurent is waiting for her.
“Look, Adele, I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have yelled at you like that. You were just doing what you had to do, and I’m a jerk.”
“Yes, you are a jerk. Luckily I'm a jerk too.”
“Do you forgive me?”
“Oh, I can probably be persuaded.”
Meanwhile in a dance club across town…
That couple are really ripping up the dance floor.
“Hey, so I don’t know you, but I’m Maryam and I really want to have a dance-off with that couple. So…uh…wanna dance with me?”
“Hahaha, ok. My name is Gustave, by the way.”
Maryam is pretty eccentric.
“Hahaha, they’ve clocked us.”
“They stopped. I think that means we won. High five!”
“I don’t think I deserve a high five, you’re the dancemeister here.”
“Just call me…uh…call me Mrs Dance.”
“Yeah, don’t call me that.”
Outside the club there’s a fireplace. Obviously. Why wouldn’t there be an open fire outside a hall of drunk people?
“So Mrs Dance, shall I stroke the fire.”
“I’ve got to go, but it was awesome meeting you, Mrs Dance. If you ever need to challenge some strangers again, you know where to find me.”
Meanwhile outside Nour’s house
“Oh-kay, you’re outside my house.”
“Can I come in?”
“Can I stop you?”
“Your flat is…quirky.”
(no, I don’t know why she changed clothes either)
“Look, I’m going to cut to the chase. I have no interest in a committed relationship. I just want to have fun.”
I know I should root for my protagonist, but girl, you can do better than a guy in bunny slippers.
Apparently he keeps them on to woohoo, Yup, that’s it, that’s the line, those **** slippers have to go.
I think she’s thinking the same thing.
At this stage, I've had a pop up informing me that Nour now has a reputation as naughty. I thought you had to be seen in public to get a reputation, but maybe there's a creeper watching outside the window. My AwesomeMod pop ups tell me Karine is on a date about twice a day, so who knows what reputation she has by now.
