Death poll aka what the heck do I do?
Update: I closed the poll after only 5 votes because I got some good advice here and on Twitter and because I wrote it into 3 chapters and it seemed to work better that way. I am still trying to decide how to handle things from here on out. If it continues the way it has been I fear I’m going to quit this story.
Yes, I know it’s morbid having a poll for this but I’m really at my wits end with this! When I decided to keep all of the sims on the lot my main concern was whether both my game and myself could handle 20 sims at once. I briefly thought about all of the deaths but it seemed far into the future and I assumed they’d happen pretty much in the same day so 4 deaths in one and 4 deaths in another a week or so later. But, I was wrong. They were spread out over several days and at this point, I really have no idea what to do. The chapters that have published so far were depressing enough with one death in them. I just feel like having 3 chapters in a row with deaths and then a few happy and then another 3 or so chapters with more deaths will basically ruin this story. I know I’ve gone from playing a lot to barely touching this save since the first death of the third generation.
Please help me decide:
a) 3 chapters with deaths spread out- it’s just a way of life
b) 1 very long chapter with all of them together- so many is depressing
Other stats: 4 deaths, 8 birthdays, 50 regular screenshots, 5 bloopers
(One chapter is already written with Karson’s death at the very end but I’ve included those 4 screenshots in this tally.)
This doesn’t even take into account the other 4 elders that are still living. I feel like this is just too depressing and I really don’t know what to do? If anyone has ideas please comment because I’m at a loss.
