Welcome to the Daily Plumbob!

First of all, welcome! I hope you enjoy yourself while you’re browsing The Daily Plumbob. I know I’ve been enjoying myself playing the game, so I hope you’ll have as much fun reading the gameplay stories. If you’re interested in how I started this save game, I’ve started a page called Where It All Began which will feature some older pictures from before I started actually documenting this save.

What’s a Gameplay Story? I have no idea if this is considered a ‘thing’ or not but I’m using the term ‘gameplay story’ to denote the fact that this is not a linear story. It has no start, middle or end, it’s not intended to tell any particular story or highlight anything in particular. The gameplay drives the stories forward. Each household has their own individual story which often overlaps another household and then another until it becomes mildly soap-opera like. I don’t plan any of their relationships, family sizes or even where they’re going to live in advance.

Are the Sims posed at all? No. I’m not posing my sims for any of these stories. You will see some posing in some stories and photo albums, such as Javon and Isabella’s wedding album however these are actually from the ‘Take Romantic Selfie – Manually’ feature of the Passionate Romance mod and not actually me physically posing the sims.

Do you use mods? Yes, I do. Quite a lot now, as time’s gone on. They’re adding more and more fascinating ideas for me to play around with and therefore providing new story ideas all the time! For a basic list of the mods I’m using, feel free to check out my Gameplay pages; I regularly update these pages to reflect mods I’m using to achieve certain gameplay styles.

If you’re new and want a brief rundown of the events, I have some summaries of each year, so you can be kept up to speed.

So I really hope you have fun. Don’t be afraid to drop me a comment or question, I love meeting new simmers! If you’re looking for mods made by me, they’re all available under Mods & CC.

  1. Dear MissyHissy,

    I am very glad to read that you still have fun with modding and are still inspired. I don´t know which drama occurred and I do not give a rats ass knowing those performative toxic members of the community I keep away from – from a greying long-time adult simmer I love your mods, they bring so much more depth to the sims and are fun to play with.

    Wishing you all the best and looking forward to those great mods you have in work.


    1. Thanks so very much! I am still very much enjoying it and hope to have some new stuff out soon! I’m recovering from an injury at the moment but should top of my game in a week or so.

      Your comment means a lot and I greatly appreciate it – thank you! 💖


  2. I’m so glad to see you posting here! You are such a great resource and honestly a pillar of the sims community. ❤ I will continue to read your posts, because I love knowing how others play their games. As always, thank you for sharing.


  3. Oh my plumming Watcher I am SO glad I found this place! I was very, very sad when I found out you deleted stuff from ModtheSims because… ugh. I don’t have any idea what this whole drama is about and I don’t CARE. Your mods are THE BEST for fixing the pathetic mess that is Sims wants and nothing can change that.

    So what I’m saying is thank you for still making an update and having it available somewhere. Thank you so, so much! ❤


    1. Hi there and you’re very welcome!
      I’m certainly not going anywhere! I love modding and sharing the stuff I do. Keeping everything in one place is a lot easier of me when updating so everything will stay here for good.

      Have a fantastic day and thank you so much for commenting!


      1. That is a huge relief! I hope you have a great time, all the time and know you are still making people’s days (many days of gameplay ;D) by doing this for us. 😀 ❤


      2. Thank you! I did need to see that, and I really appreciate you taking the time to say so.

        I am actually REALLY having fun modding again and have some great updates/new mods in the works! Thank you so much!
