Calypso Island - Meet the Settlers  

So, I decided to start another BACC :) I'll be using the rules from Nepheris and I really can't wait to get started. So here's a first post. Get ready to meet the settles from Calypso Island.


When Lily signed up to “explore strange new worlds” this wasn’t exactly what she had in mind. To make matters even worse, by signing up first Lily automatically became the leader of the party.
She’s promised to do her best to make Calypso Island into a thriving community (and hopes her best will be good enough).


As forth and fifth brother in line, chances of inheriting the family farm were pretty slim. So when an opportunity presented itself in the form of new land, the Morgan brothers didn't hesitate to jump on board.
But neither Kevin nor Jake ever had to work with land that has never been tilled...


Terri is just looking for a quiet place to write her book, thank you very much. An apartment with noisy upstairs-, downstairs, and next door neighbors is not the place for that. So when she heard "unexplored", Terri immediately thought "nice and quiet" and she signed up.
Hopefully inspiration will strike on the sunlit shores of Calypso Island.


Like Terri, Rosie is also looking for a little peace and quiet. And a little faith never hurt anyone. Rosie is hoping that the piece and quiet of Calypso Island will bring her closer to the Watcher. After that unfortunate incident with her roomie and the randomly disapearing door, she hopes that a deeper bond will stop those things from happening.


Summer and Remi do everything as a team. So when Remi wanted to join the settlers, Summer tagged along. They don't really have a plan for Calypso Island, but the pictures looked pretty and it seemed like a nice environment to start a family.

I'm really looking forward to it too :D It's been so long since I played "my own" sims in "my own" neighborhood, I wonder what it'll be like XD

You've got some interesting characters here :)
Keonikeoni_chan on February 24th, 2014 09:21 pm (UTC)
Thank you! :D Hopefully they will be interesting enough for me to keep playing them, that was my downfall at my last attempt :)

Everyone is so cute <3 I love Rosie's back story with the disappearing door too. So looking forward to this :)

Thank you :3 Hahaha, I toyed with the idea of pool ladders instead, but since that was already present in Pleasantview, I went with doors instead :)

Cute Sims! I can't wait for this to start. :D
Keonikeoni_chan on February 24th, 2014 09:23 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I really couldn't wait to start too, I'm so glad I'm done with the prep-stage :)
Angiepnkpnthr334 on February 25th, 2014 05:05 am (UTC)
I'm planning a new BaCC and I'm still firmly in the prep-stage, but I just want to get on with it! I have the settlers all planned out, but I still need to pick a terrain and everything. I just installed IKEA Stuff on my laptop though, which is what I was waiting for before doing anything else. :P

They all look so entertaining! I especially like Rosie and Terri, I think they'll become good friends :)
Keonikeoni_chan on February 24th, 2014 09:25 pm (UTC)
I hope they will be :) I'm hoping for a friendship too, I think they'd go well together.

Keonikeoni_chan on May 30th, 2014 01:43 pm (UTC)
Re: BACC??
Hi! Oh, that's okay. I don't mind at all! :3 BACC means "Build A City Challenge".

Re: BACC??
and how is that like? what do i got to do if i want to do that and all the thing....
Thanks for answering :D

Re: BACC??
Basically it means you start with an entirely empty neighborhood and then slowly start filling it. There are restrictions though. Nepheris wrote a set of rules explaining how here. There are other rule sets though, there is a page with links to them here.
I hope that helps! :)
