of us attend all the parties. Others have the largest house around. Let
me introduce you to the Jet-Set-Sims of Simmerville.
you will instinctively know when you run into a neighbour belonging to
the Jet-Set-Sims. He or she will be kind and easy to talk with, or the
fashional outfit is saying "I'm Jet-Set-Sim" even from a distance. But
if you sit down to write about how to tell the difference - hey, that's
not as easy as you thought, and that's what I'm about to do now.
you, I'm never wrong when it comes to Jet-Set-Sims, and my personal Top-5
list is never far away from my phone. When I want to socialize, I prefer
calling these social and party loving people, why should I go for anyone
else? You'll find me visiting homes having a swimming pool, a bar counter,
or at least some fashionable high tech or art for my amusement. Of course
I might consider their financial situation as well, but jet-set is not
about money alone - it's also a matter of how you spend them. I'm sure
you might have a different view on this.
of all, there are 3 things that I find more important than anything; the
typical Jet-Set-Sim is outgoing and has collected many personal friends,
and he or she should also live in a worthy household.
Here's how you can rank your own neighbourhood: Make a Top-10 of residents
for each of the 3 criterias, and check who's name appears on at least 2
of those lists. By following my calculations for Simmerville you will see
how to do it.
start by ranking the 10 most popular adult residents, sorted by the number
of their personal friends. Personal friends as in individual relations
and not family friends. Friends within the same household don't count.
theori is that outgoing people get more friends, and those having the most
friends are more likely to introduce me to more people than a shy person
the same method to decide the Top-10 for the households' net worth. This
should be pretty easy to do, you will normally need to pick the 5 most
expensive houses, and rank the adults living there by the net worth.
in Simmerville, only 4 out of 10 households have a net worth more than
§75.000, while the remaining 6 are less than §40.000. On the
definite top we find the Simpley sisters having a rocking high net worth
of 107.082 semoleons, followed by the Valentinos, the Hornsbys and the
can be said to be extraordinary about this ranking, is that neither of
the Simpley sisters have ever been working, and only one person in the
Valentino household is having an income. I keep asking myself how these
families can be this wealthy, and it's no secret that I feel very attracted
to them both and want to learn a trick or two:)
a Top-10 on outgoing adults, ranked by their urge/need of socializing.
This is easiest found as part of individual personalities, you will figure.
all 3 lists at the same time, makes it easier to find the solid Jet-Set-Sims.
Don't be surprised if this turns out to list the neighbours who are most
often on your door!

You will see I've coloured
names red if the name shows up in all 3 lists (which is how I recognize
a perfect Jet-Set, and I've used the colour orange if the name shows up
in 2 of the lists, meaning this is a "watch out". The colours are just
to make it easier for you to see the repeated names. If you are extremely
concerned to mingle the right people, you might want to focus only on the
Top-5 names. For my personal use, I have a way more complex system for
Anyways, there's no doubt;
Simmerville has only 2 real Jet-Set-Sims, and I'm not at all surprised
who they are:
Simmerville Jet-Set #1, is quite outgoing and nice, and I assume her wealth
and Simmerville address is giving her a lot of friends, too. Her sister
Stella is currently ranked #3 on my Jet-Set list. The Simpley sisters are
the wealthiest household of this area, and they live in the old, large
original house up on the hill, SimmerLane #2. Nobody really knows how they
became this wealthy, because - as far as known - they never spent one single
day working! Rabarabra is currently dating my old school mate, Jim, we
share a house so I see Rabarabra quite often. I shouldn't add that the
Simpley sisters are quite well known for their bad taste, so I will not
mention that at all. I'll tell you more about them in a soon-to-come "Chez
Simpleys" feature, including photos from their villa.
is #2 on my jet-set list, and the Valentinos are #2 on the list of net
worth! Rudy is a very outgoing person, and quite popular, too. Rudy and
Julia moved to Simmerville quite a while ago, and they brought a complete
2 stories tall and well equipped home. Only Julia is having an income as
a desk sergent in the Sim City Police Department, while Rudy is improving
his cooking skills and playing the piano a lot. This couple recently got
2 kids, both daughters, but that doesn't seem to keep Rudy away from the
Ursull S. Swims
Carl L. Hornsby
(me!). My family name doesn't pay me
much justice, because most people around here simply adore me.
movie- and TV star Jonathan Hanssen is the 3rd person who is ranked on
all 3 lists, even so I've ranked him #9 on my personal Jet-Set list. You
might already know the background of the Hanssen family, but it's quite
unique and will definitely be presented in some future article here on
Simmerville web! Jonathan, former trapeze dancer in circus business, now
he is a well known TV-star.
keep you updated on the Simmerville jet-set.
