Maxis Taste Dare #30: I DO!

This Dare made me think about all the times (ALLLL THE TIMES) I've gotten Vidcund Curious married off, and I started wondering how many old screenshots I could find of the weddings.

I actually didn't find as many as I thought I would (found more dirty bedroom scenes than anything else, teehee) but here's some I was able to rustle up!



This one is really old. I think this is the first time I ever got him married off and I was happy to find a picture of it.  It was originally posted on my old TSR account, and (if it is the one I'm thinking of) the born-in-game sim he's marrying was named Megan and she started off as a teenager that he became friends with.

It was kind of funny, because I had originally decided the teenager's mother (who was a Romance sim) would romance Vidcund as a notch in her bedpost, so to speak... since her LTW was to woohoo 20 sims. The mother and Vidcund didn't get along AT ALL, but during the times I was trying to get them together, he and her teenage daughter Megan got to be best friends. In fact, she was the one who would invite him over when I was trying to get him and her mother together!

When she became an adult (I didn't have Uni then) all she wanted was to flirt with him, kiss him, etc. So... I went with it. They were extremely happy together and had something like 15 children with liberal use of the Elixir of Life.

Imagine my surprise when I finally got around to installing Nightlife and found they only had 1 bolt of chemistry!  D'oh!


I loved this sim. This is actually Vidcund's second wife in this game, and in this picture he was only 1 day from Elder while the bride was just a recent college graduate. I don't remember if she was a CAS sim or a Dormie I had made over, but I do remember she was originally intended for one of Vidcund's sons that he'd had with his first wife. I don't remember her name though. :\

Anyway, the son had graduated college and had moved back home, and asked this sim to move in. She and Vidcund fell for each other almost instantly, and I decided on a May/December romance for him. They were so cute together.


This one is... uh... no idea. LOL


Same with this one. Just more random blond CAS sims marrying Vidcund Curious. Nothing more to see here, folks! :P


If I recall correctly, this was actually one of the many Strangetown Asylums I did over the years, perhaps even the first one.


Prego bride alert! And I'm not 100% sure who this is, but I think it's the first Charity Davenport-Cavendish, from the first time I wrote To Fear the Dawn and posted it on TSR. When I posted it here, I replayed the game and took all new pictures as my first ones looked a bit dated, lol.


This is from when I played Vidcund through Castaway Stories, and it was pretty cold and lonely for Vidcund over by himself on that islan...

...just kidding... that's not the right picture!


There we go!   This was Vidcund's island bride, Taipua, from Castaway Stories.  I suppose he technically wasn't an in-game sim from that game, since I had copied him though SimPE and imported him into it.  To me he was the same, though. 


This is from my Standish Legacy, which I didn't ever finish on LJ but I did on TSR. I believe this picture is from the one I did here, though... I had one of the 2nd generation "spares" move to Strangetown and marry Vidcund. Who else??



Vidcund and Charity from To Fear the Dawn.


Those darn hobby people! Always showing up at the most awkward times!

Thank you for reading!

Have you considered creating him in ts3 or sims medieval? I remember your castaways story, and it inspired me to get castaways for myself. I loved that game.
May. 3rd, 2012 10:03 pm (UTC)
Oh I have created him in TS3 for sure!! But since it wasn't a direct copy of him via SimPE I wasn't sure if I could use it here...

Here's a picture of him in my current TS3 game. I just LURVE him in it! <3 <3

This is so cute! I still have to marry the Curious guys off. :)
May. 3rd, 2012 10:04 pm (UTC)
Aw, thank you!!
May. 3rd, 2012 10:24 pm (UTC)
Haha, gotta love random hobby sims!
May. 4th, 2012 01:43 pm (UTC)
lol I know!!! They just show up whenever... I've even had them stand outside the bathrooms waiting for sims to come out. XD
May. 3rd, 2012 10:42 pm (UTC)
Very nice job :D Wow! You really love you some Vidcund don't you? :D *giggles* We all have our faves ^_~* I've married a couple of premades before....I don't get a chance to play with them too much though but yours is nicely done
May. 4th, 2012 01:44 pm (UTC)
Thank you! Yes I really do... he has been my favorite Sim for a very long time!

I'm thinking about doing a spinoff of the pixel_trade's viking death challenge with him. It wouldn't be official, of course... but it sounds like so much fun!

Awww All the memories!!! <3
Glad you decided to look for old pictures. It was nice to see them again. Miss your stories! :)

Yeah I had a great time looking through all the old pics. :) It did bring back lots of memories, and made me want to start playing again!
May. 4th, 2012 12:34 am (UTC)
Wow, Vidcund has a serious thing for blondes, it looks like! :)
May. 4th, 2012 01:47 pm (UTC)
He does in my game at least! XD Most of the time, anyway, lol!
May. 4th, 2012 01:59 am (UTC)
Ha! this is crack up. Makes me wish I had piks of every time I married Goopy to various characters. I'd have about 10.
May. 4th, 2012 01:48 pm (UTC)
Oh my... I've never married off Goopy to anyone yet... I'll have to try that! XD
May. 6th, 2012 12:30 pm (UTC)
He is my Fav townie, so I have quite a lot.
May. 4th, 2012 08:11 am (UTC)
You know, I remember several of these! I was stalking your posts a lot on TSR. That seems so long ago...

I miss your pics and stories. :)

I know TSR is supposed to be evil, but I can't be angry at it. I have too many good memories there! To this day I still think my favorite Sims story ever was the one about that prison in Strangetown where Loki Beaker was the warden by... omg that was like the first ever Asylum challenge, wasn't it?

Had to go look it up... "Hard Time at Hardwell Prison" by monks_redemption.

http://forums.thesimsresource.com/index.php?/topic/186871-hard-time-at-hardwell-prison/page__hl__hardwell prison

I think I'll be reading that again! ^_^
May. 4th, 2012 03:20 pm (UTC)
Whoa, the TSR forums look... different.

Clicking on the links to see pictures... I don't miss that!

But yeah, TSR being evil doesn't mean everyone and everything ever posting/posted on their forums is evil. In the beginning, I didn't know any better, I just wanted a place to chat to some other Sims-playing people. :P
May. 4th, 2012 12:13 pm (UTC)
Vidcund LOVE!!

(and his TS3 version looks so stern, very cool)

I'm glad you dug up these old pics, it's like a walk down memory lane. (I'm tempted to do it myself)
May. 4th, 2012 01:58 pm (UTC)
I really love my TS3 Vidcund, but as of yet he's the *only* sim I've ever really been able to love out of that game lol! Well... he's had a few sons that I've liked, too. In my current TS3 game he's had two sons, both of which are pretty cool. Any daughters he has though, and well... just the females in that game in general let's be honest... are just too derpy for words and I end up killing them off. >:|

You totally should dig through some old pics! It really made me want to start playing again... not that I'll write long stories or anything like that again, but I'm seriously considering starting a new Strangetown game and playing a Viking Death Challenge-inspired game!
May. 4th, 2012 12:47 pm (UTC)
I feel like such a slacker with my mere 3 or 4 versions of Strangetown (only one of which would qualify as a play-through)!

These are fantastic. Very fun post. And I love the Sims 3 version of Vidcund - he looks perfect! Very Vidlike. :D
May. 4th, 2012 02:01 pm (UTC)
Thank you!! :D

I think I'm just too obsessed with Strangetown and the Curious brothers. :S They have to come into every one of my sims games somehow! I even have a Vidcund in WoW... he's a warlock that does... what else... herbology! Granted there are NO resemblences to the real Vid except for the blond hair and fair skin... but hey...

I'm hopeless! XD
May. 4th, 2012 02:25 pm (UTC)
Not hopeless, you just know what you like! ^_^

I've re-created characters across the Sims-WoW divide, too. My first WoW character was a Pixel. And yeah, no real resemblance, but the idea was there.

Vidcund will always be special to me as he gave me my beloved Pixel and Bean. ♥
May. 4th, 2012 02:36 pm (UTC)
Hey, you're not the only one obsessed with S-town. (I don't know if that is any consolation, seeing as I also fit into that category, but at least you are not alone.)

I could look at pictures of Vidcund all day and be a happy camper. These are all so adorable it makes me want to squee with delight LOL.

The Vidcund/Monkey picture is priceless. It almost made me go to EA and see if I could still get Castaway Stories. (Had I known there were monkeys in it I would have bought it a long time ago.)

Your TS3 Vid makes me say hubba hubba. If my TS3 game was working correctly, I would totally want to steal him from you.
May. 4th, 2012 09:14 pm (UTC)
Have I ever mentioned I love your username? Pascal is my favorite Sim ever.
May. 4th, 2012 11:23 pm (UTC)
No, you haven't, LOL. I was so tickled when the user name was available when I started my LJ. I adore all three of the Curious brothers, but Pas is my especial favorite ;-)
May. 4th, 2012 09:40 pm (UTC)
I actually did all three of the Curious brothers and posted them for download here: http://cindyanne1.livejournal.com/tag/uploads

Vidcund is the only one I was really happy with though!
May. 4th, 2012 11:21 pm (UTC)
I seem to remember them now. I recall that I liked Lazlo as well. If only my TS3 game wore working... It has been borked ever since Showtime.
May. 4th, 2012 04:34 pm (UTC)
This was really interesting to look at. I have always thought that Vidcund is a sweetheart.
May. 4th, 2012 11:06 pm (UTC)
He IS!!!
May. 5th, 2012 02:51 am (UTC)
You're still alive!

What's with the guy in the Tron suit in the last picture? That's... odd. I haven't played Sims in forever at this point, so maybe it's something I missed in a recent expansion. (I actually bought Pets but haven't played since I got it. Well, I did for like 5 minutes. Spiral staircases broke somehow and no one can get up or down them. Guess what? The house has nothing but spiral staircases and I'll have to redesign it for standard staircases to fit. Rather than doing that, I just stopped playing.)
May. 12th, 2012 07:14 pm (UTC)
Love this! Vidcund has a very... busy life in your game. Congrats on importing him in Castaway, I tried that once but the sim wouldn't show in CAS.

And bride #3 (Vid, you stallion!) looks an awful lot like Sarah Love.
