The Green family was part of the Matyville project and had a substantial backstory - a hard-luck backstory in fact. To play the scenario as intended install the sims using the instructions below. Update 30 August to fix aging problem.
The Green family and their lots:Download the Green's and their 3 lots.
Here are a few pics from the Green's story. Chapters 1-6 of the backstory on my simpage
The Greens are a growing family with problems. First problem is that they don't fit in the house! Granny (Ellen) doesn't actually live there. Move her back to her own house, preferably without making her 20k richer in the process. Phil doesn't live there either at the moment - move him to the lot provided or another lot of your choice. The army have sent him away from home. There seems to be a problem with the Greens not aging properly - I'll update asap
Foster Court has one adult, 5 teens and a child in an institution type building. This is a place for the local authority to put teens in trouble and children who need care, but cannot be adopted. They will live together as a family under the supervision of a responsible adult.
Area 101 has seven boot camp recruits who need licking into shape by a determined commander. Their previous commander is now in an urn. Made in OFB, so probably requires OFB or above.
The Green and Foster Court lots were made with The Sims 2 base game only. Empty lots should be edited in buy/build mode before you put sims in them. The sims have been played, but the files have been edited very carefully. All files are maxis only content.
You can either set it up where my story ended using the instructions below or if this is all too hard, download and play it your way! I played the foster home without Cheryl and had a lot of fun. The Foster Court stories are also on my simpage. These files are as clean as I know how to make them and won't add junk to your game files unlike most other downloadable lots with played sims.
Thanks to Simmiecal for inspiring me to make the Green family and write their stories for the now defunct MATYville. Thanks to Quaxi and Numenor - without SimPE cleaning up the files wouldn't have been possible. Thank you also to all the guys at MATY who've been patient when I asked stupid questions about how to clean 'hood files especially Pescado who found more things to clean up!
