I just HAD to create this family! They were my absolute favourite to play in the Sims 1, and I'm pretty sure they were loved by others too!! Of course, I also created their house which is available in a separate download.

This is only the second time I've tried to re-create existing sims, and I struggled a wee bit with Hank, but I think he came out pretty good overall.

Welcome to the Hatfield family!!! Below I've included the original "biographies" to help rekindle those warm fuzzy memories of this lovable family.

Ulysses T. Hatfield

I ain't never bin one much fer workin. Heck, I ain't never bin much of anything to tell the truth. But all my life I done believed I wuz meant fer sumpthin. I just ain't gots around to findin what it was. I gots this funny feelin', though, that my luck is about ta change. I'm puttin' my trust in a HIGHER authority, iffen ya know what I mean.

Ruby Ann Hatfield

I wanted to be a model. I wanted to be an actress. Looks like I was dealt a different hand in life. Such is fate. But I got a good man by my side and three beautiful kids. Might have another one on the way too. They say the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, but ya know what? I don't like green.... I like pink. Such is fate.

Hank Hatfield

I am so bored. Everyone else has a huge TV but Ma says we can't afford one right now. I think she just wants a fancy kithen or sumpthin'. I don't want to study either. Pop says he's gonna send me to military school if my grades don't improve. Fine with me!

Elizabeth Elvira Hatfield

My brothers always say I'm stupid but THEY are the stupid ones. Mom says I'm going to grow up and be a model or a movie star one day cuz I'm so pretty. Then I'll have a show about how dumb my brothers are and everyone will know. Then I'll buy my Ma and Pa a big house with a big kitchen and a huge TV and everything. Until then I'm gonna study hard and make them proud.

Billy Hatfield didn't have much to say:
What are you lookin' at? You can't make me write a bio. Pop says I'm like him when he was a kid.

I did play-test the family as they play-tested their home. Without their home they have around $31 000 in funds, and if they purchase the home they'll have around $250 (which is comparable to the original game as they only had $129 or so).

I had scads of fun creating them, and I'll have scads more playing them! I hope you enjoy them as well!

I used no cc and base game items only.

The Hatfield family didn't come with the game....they were downloaded from the Maxis site and installed separately.

Glad you like the family!
