Welcome to the Paraverse! A new spin off series in the Paraneighbours Simematic Universe, or PSU, if you will. (I kid.)
With all of the new game play we got in the last year - like university, and three (!) new occults - I kinda wished that I could go back and restart my Paraneighbours save, so that I could incorporate some of the new gameplay from the beginning.
Since my original neighbours nearing elderhood in my main save, I thought it might be fun to stick some clean versions of them in a new, 'alternate universe' save, and try playing them through university - which was how I used to start all of my rotational, prosperity-style saves back in TS2.
It's like my own version of San Junipero - a way to keep playing all my favourite gay sims, without actually having to say goodbye to them after they pass away in the main save...
I decided to stick her in one of the fashion district apartments - the one with the body outline hidden under one of the rugs. She has the TLC lot trait, along with fast internet and science lair.
I didn't really make any changes to Andy's personality or aspiration itself - she's still a cheerful, geeky genius, whose first aspiration will be to become a city native. I'm not sure that I want to play through StrangerVille with her again, so I'll probably pick something new for her after she finishes this one.
I'm not super fussed about making sure that everyone gets back together with their original partners - with the exception of Jeff and Alec - but Andy and Miko seem to be a good match in my other save, so for the moment I'm taking this as a sign that they're meant to be together.
And yes, that is Alec stomping around like an angry bigfoot in the background.
Let's just say I've made a couple changes to some of my original neighbours in this save...
Finally, Andy came across a protest in the uptown district, which was extremely good timing, because donating to a protester was her next aspiration goal.
She invites Miko to come down with her, and if things go smoothly she'll be able to score a kiss tonight.
I had her apply to university at the very end of the week, so next rotation she'll be starting a distinguished Physics degree at Foxbury. She didn't manage to snag any of the skill-related scholarships just yet, but she did the San Myshuno resident one, so at least she'll have a little extra cash going towards her classes.
Next up is Jeff and Alec!
