i created a family of 3 initially. 2 young adult parents, and one child. the parents work in the police department, and the child is a thief. LOL. the child is growing up and i have seen some amazing fights between the kid and the parents.!!

The regular sims 3 no expansions .Create an elder (female) and a young adult (male) and last but not least a child (female). Have the young adult mean spirited and evil. (Your gonna have to use spoot the magic lama cheat.)Have him be a criminal and have the most expensive things so a theif comes have the male young adult fall in love with the theif ( If female.) And have them have a child. When the children turn into teens have them fight and be enemies. Have the child of the criminals kill the good one. This is where the elder comes in. The young adult gets in fights with the elder and sooner or later the wife criminal can't take all the fighting so she kills the elder.And so the 2 of them live happily ever after, and have tons of kids and the criminal career gets carried on until they have a good child and the rest of the family turns good and do good things and good careers.

I usually do ones from my favorite stories like 39 Clues, or ones from my own stories, like my own Jay and Sammy.

Not as interesting as some of the ones that have already been said, but you could try this:

Make a male sim who is flirty. Move him into a big house with lots of money so that he doesn't need to get a job, and go round getting breaking up households by getting women pregnant. I'm on this current mission and so far he has 10 kids with different people. It is pretty amusing juggling all the relationships at once. :D

I made 2 sims. What I did was I made a room and put a sim in it. Then i removed everything including the door so he couldn't get out. First I made sure I had the Divine Intervention Karma Power. Then I let my sim starve to death. Since he only had five days until he was gone forever I had to act fast. So I made sure they were both happy. Then I made them try for a baby. Next I made my sim come back to life. So now I have a purple, ghost child. :D -If you choose this make sure after he starves you do everything fast! He only has 5 days.-

There are 2 normal people-a guy and a girl. They're going to be the ones you keep normal. You can even base one on yourself... Then a guy who's going out with another girl, but make him cheat on her with another girl whose engaged/married to someone else. Then she can get pregnant at the same time someone else gets the other one pregnant. Make one of the woman he was married to first then find out and kill herself, after she gives birth and get him together with the girl who was engaged/married to someone else. I just want to see how the kids turn out... maybe make them fall in love or something? Oh, yeah, and live in a mansion so you have enough room for them all to live.

A really gooone is to make a guy an a girl(either already married or u can or u can play until they get married) then kill the man. it wont work if u kill the girl. Then eventually u will get the oppotunity to bring him back at the science lab. Do so (it costs simoleons). when he gets back make them fall in love again and have children. they will all be ghosts!!

Okay , so the family I recently is pretty interesting ;3
Theres the wife ( young adult ) , a flirty girl with commitment issues , who dreams of being a heartbreaker .
Then her husband ( young adult ) , a good , family - oriented , friendly kind of guy .
Next , there's his parents ( two elders ) . His mom , just like her son , and his dad , just like his wife .
So , the husband and his mom both have jobs at the same time . The wife and the husband's dad stay home and manage the house . Given their flirty personality and issues with commitment , the two were drawn to each other and had an affair .
Meanwhile , the husband and his mom were completely oblivious , so they went on their normal lives . Well one day , the mom came home from work early and caught the wife and the dad " together " but decided to keep it a secret for the sake of her family and just tried to over look it . So again , they went on normally .
The husband , who loved kids , wanted some of his own with his wife , so they tried for kids . But little did he know , earlier , while he was at work , his dad also tried for kids with the wife . So when she got pregnant , know one really knew who's kid it was . ( She knew that it was the dad's but know one else knew . )
Now Im waiting for the baby to be born , and I dont really know whats gonna happen . Maybe the husband will automatically find out she's cheating when she has a kid thats not his but maybe he won't know . I dont really know . But if he doesn't realize she cheated , Im gonna have the husband and the wife try for a baby and have them have a kid ! Its so interesting !
( lol , right now , the dad's wants our :
-break up with his wife
-woohoo with his wife
-woohoo with his son's wife )

Chiyyne ;
Does the oppurtunity just automatically come or do you have to do something to get it ??

Ok, here's a good family idea. Create a woman, pretty, blonde hair, name her whatever. I would name her Katie so lets go with that. Create a man, young adult and make his traits heartbreaker and angry, all the bad ones but keep 1 nice one. Get them together and all that, small house, cute couple. Whatever. Then make The male (Let's just call him Simon) start hitting Katie and making her life really miserable. When Katie realises she's pregnant (MAKE THIS HAPPEN BEFORE HE STARTS ABUSING HER)this will add a twist to the story. Katie is forced to stay with a horrible man.

Katie then realises that Simon has a hot brunette girlfriend, make her look really young and pretty (SLAGGISH) Katie is so heartbrocken and finally chucks him out the house. Katie makes the apartment a lot nicer and gives birth. (I love doing single mums) she can have a little girl or boy but let's pretend she has a girl and call her Issybell? Ok well once she raises Issybell and she grows you can start to play on Issybell? Then maybe make her have kids etc etc..START GENERATIONS! anyway that's my family so yeah use it if you want!

I had a white trash family. They were all slobs and had all really crappy fruniture. Peg the wife was really fat and ugly and mean. Jeb the dad was also fat and they were both lazy and watched tv all day. The son was a young adult and got fired from all his jobs. The daughter was a skank and slept around with lots of guys and cheated on all of them. I would invite her current boyfriend over and flirt and kiss another guy right in front of him and watch him cry. She would also go after married guys and tell them to break up with their wives. Then I had a little boy who was in school and he never does his homework. I have had him skip school for a whole wee. I want to see if he will get kicked out of school but he hasn't yet.

I usually re-play small parts of Dragon Age Origins or create new Dragon Age-adventures with the Sims. I have a Jowan-Sim and a Surana-Sim (­ynn­a__­pho­to/­...­jpg and­ynn­a__­pho­to/­...­jpg) and both are mages. He's a coward and she's brave and I send them on trips together (Egypt + China) before they buy farm and move in, together with a unicorn and a horse (shire) as pets and the elf starts breeding them while her human boyfriend tends the garden, selling the fruits and vegetables. They eventually have a son together but won't marry, to keep it canon with DAO. :D

you should make your family starting with your grandparents, and use the apples and watermelons cheat to get your aunts and uncles the same gender, and then make yourself get born and see if you are ugly or pretty!

I actually had a very interesting life. I was living with my boyfriend and I kinda got bored with him so one night when he was at work, I got pregnant with twins with someone else and I moved in and got married with the father of my children. I don't know how but he died and I raised the twins by myself . I fell in love with my butler and ended up getting married to him and now I'm currently pregnant.

Im starting a new family that has 3 members who are related and then 3 others who the family has adopted
the mother: MyrAnaa Stanwick
the father: David Stankwick
the toddler: Emma Stanwick
ADOPTED KIDS: teen- Nora Grey, Child- Chase and Charlotte Vincent
It all started when i was playing a computer game (not the sims3) and the house in the game was amazing!! It was a stately looking manor that had a bunch of locked rooms, so i just looked at the map and drew out the floor plan, it had a basement, main floor, 2 floor and attic. but that seemed a bit extensive so i just created the first and 2nd floors, my house has 7 bedrooms, nursery, 3 bathrooms, 4 closets, 8 long hallways, 3 lounge and living areas, a parlor, kitchen/dining room, elevator, 2 balconies, front stoop, private garden, crawlspace, 2 car garage with room for three cars on the outside drive and 2 water features. This house was really old and so i decorated most of it, how the house would have looked when it was built and for some of the rooms i gave them a more modern look.
anyways, in this story, the mother lived here when she was young with her parents and her grandparents. When the grandmother passed away there was a still in the air for a while, then the parents were in a terrible house fire that destroyed much of the old house, and they perished within trying to protect there beloved daughter, but it was reconstructed to look like it had before the fire, the grandfather then raised the girl until she was 4, and when the old house became to dangerous for her to live in, he sent her to boarding school abroad. But 18 years later the poor old man died alone, Myranna hadn't been back to the house since he sent her away, and so she never knew that he had passed. While she was away in england for school, she met the love of her life, David, they were married and had a bouncing baby boy named Peter, after Myranna's father, but after only 3 days of life he died. But not discouraged, Myranna and David had another child after him, a beautiful baby girl named Emma, they lived in England until Emma was 2. thats when they got the letter, saying the Myranna's grandfather had died. And being the only Stanwick heir left in the family, Myranna and her family had inherited the Estate. Whne they arrived in to Riverview, they were shutout by the community, for being newcomers, thats when Myranna explained that she used to live there, with her family until they had perished in the housefire and that her grandfather had sent her away. When they went on a faamily trip however, back to england to visit Davids family they had heard of an orphanage that had burnt down and that every child except 3 had famiy to take them in, they immediately went to the childcare facility and met the kids and adopted them. The oldest being teenage Nora Grey, whose parents had not wanted her when she was born, she was 16 and been in the system since the day they said she wasnt wanted, and the two youngest a set of twins, Chase and Charlotte, they had only very recently been orphaned when their parents had been killed in a terrible car accident, with their new family members, they immediately flew back home where they are now residing in the stately Stanwick Manor Estate. Myranna and David still want more children so that the house doesnt seem as bleak and spooky as it did in Myranna's youth so they will adopt more children and potentially pets.

No expansions needed, motherlode needed. Make a beautiful young adult couple with a teenage girl and kid boy. Make the father a workaholic and join the sports career. Make him work on his computer 24/7. The little boy is athletic and a loner. The little boy wants to be just like his father but his father is never there. The father is always working or having an affair. The teenage girl is a charismatic, flirty, party animal - always out with friends. Once the father reaches the top of the sports career, he admits to the mother about his affairs, and leaves her with the kids. He goes to live with another woman and the mother and father get divorced. (Sorry, I know its confusing. But I believe that complicated families are SO much more interesting than a perfect little cute family.)

Go out places: (Nintendo Wii Version).

-GYMNASIUM (near Fresh Fruits Grocery, go to FFG, then cross the road on your left hand side, you will see the gym.)

-THE GALLERY (why not head out to the art gallery? If your sim has the trait of artistic, then this is the perfect place for you. Also, if you want your teenager child to do well at school, the Gallery is recommended for your teenager to get a higher grade in art class, which affects the overall grade).

-BEACH (we all know where the beach is, so why not cook everyone up some hotdogs? Or go Kitesurfing* or have a picnic or simply get a suntan. The Beach is suitable for an entire day out).
*Buy a Kite Surf kit from BUILD&BUY then add it to inventory, then go to the beach and put the kite surfer down in the water. Step on.

-HOTEL (with a pool and food court, then this is the place for sims who wish to have a party or a simply quiet swim).

-LAKE (going to the lake is not advised as a full day out, all you can do is pee, eat and swim. Kitesurfing is allowed here but you can hardly have a day surfing in a big pond, can you??)

-LIBRARY (once again, another educational visit. Reccommended more for parents wanting to learn to cook).

-FRIENDS HOUSE (go visit a friend and maybe kip the night there. After all, your sim needs to be a bit more social!)

-PARTY (host a party at your place - this takes a while of setting up as guests only come if food is served. Well, they come 99% quicker if you have food out!)

-GRAVEYARD (go visit a passed away friend, you would have seen them more often if they were alive anyway...)

-WAREHOUSE (if you are a copper, then going to the Warehouse is an ideal thing to up your game - you cannot enter the Warehouse unless you are a thief.

Thank you for reading, my next article will be on JOBS.
