1. Information to residents
sure that all your residents are well informed on what will happen to their
existence. Look up various information on Simmerville's section devoted
to FUTURE, as well as the Maxis
scientists' information. Expect all kinds of reactions; some
residents will loudly distrust your plan, and some families might even
move away to escape the changes.
you start your information campaign, you must of course decide how the
local operation will be proceeded, and basically how the future hood will
be. Residents will want to recognize elements, but they will also expect
to find significant improvements after going through so much fuss.
are many ways to spread your information. You can arrange a community meeting
where you tell the attendees about the plans and the 12 steps. You can
send them a letter, or you can even stick posters to the walls at various
Old Town or Downtown locations to inform them about "Transformation TS2".
A wall near the toilet or near the cab/bus stop is fine. Finally, you could
build a small information stand or a larger information center at a community
lot because your residents will look for news and information all through
Include facts about the future that might be of importance to each household.
Like the DNA, ageing, aspirations and even what careers there will be.

TS2. Many details are still in the works, but they must get to know enough
to make a decision: Stay or leave!
them that each household must accept to follow directions from the Hood
Council during the full transformation periode, or move out. It will not
be tolerated to follow just some directions but not all of them. As soon
as the operation has started no Sim can move out from the hood.
STEP 2 : Notes and plans
here to send in your brief results from this step]
residents were basically well informed because of the local focus on the
old Simmish Prophecy. But we wanted to make sure, so a letter was sent
to all residents a while ago, informing them that the entire Mazaloom district
will get transformed. Hood Council members were available for phone calls
24/7. We also gave a few descriptions of the new hood, like that we expect
it to look familiar and that houses will mosly be equally located.
residents were negative to the changes, but nobody did claim to leave Simmerville.
The FSAS organisation did protest to the female testsims' job, but there
is nothing they can do because there are legal contracts, besides our future
depends on those Testsims.
