Ok, so I wanted some new sims in my world, and Bob & Betty have been around since the beginning of this game so I just had to include them too!



Again, I know ten trillion other players have made these two, but oh well.

While researching this pair, the makers of the Sims have really confused them! They are adults but not married in the Sims 1, they are elders in the Sims 2, teens in 3 and I haven't seen them yet in 4. Until now LOL I married them in CAS because the research shows that she was either married to or had a romance with Bob at some point so.....whatever!

Traits are as follows:



Bob aspires to have good lineage family, while being a lazy, outgoing goofball.



Betty aspires to be a chef while being a neat, outgoing food person.

I tried to include pics of the Sims 1 versions, but they are small and have crummy graphics but I hope they are good enough.

I had fun creating these two, and I hope you have fun playing them! They have no custom content and use only base game items. :D

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

One glance told me all I needed to know. They are completely recognizable! Great job!

Thanks for the positive feedback! Aside from "practicing" my family members in CAS, these two were my first crack at trying to replicate someone.

I'm so happy you like them!

If you click on the tab beside the "files" tab, it says this:

Wow they look great! Maybe you should've make Bob a bit fatter and give him the "lazy" trait but anyway excellent work! :D

I suppose I could have made him fatter....but in my game I thought it might be fun to make him "get" that way on his own. As to the lazy trait I don't figure it applies. In the original game he's considered outgoing and playful which to me isn't quite completely lazy. LOL

Thanks for the kind words!

When I first got the Sims 1, I played the Newbie family for a few days before I realized that I could create a "me" sim. Which I did and then moved into the largest house in the base game with the rosebud cheat. Great memories.
