7. The CAS clinic
Maxis scientists were right; the old Simmish Prophecy was to come through
this Autumn, these days to be exact. Any hood accepting the future (TS2)
will be starting a new with a new dimension included! Join us as Simmerville
prepares for "Transformation TS2" - our biggest project ever!
is part 2 of Simmerville's ongoing operation "Transformation TS2". If you
did not come here from the Part 1 page, you might like to go there to read
the introduction. To the left you see the barometer. Click any green or
orange step number to proceed.
We just completed 6 steps
of leaving Old Days, also known as the "flat world", or Transformation
Status 1 (TS1). When we proceeds with step 7, the 3rd dimension has been
delivered, aging is back, and we do hope that The SimCity Grand Transformation
Office did keep their promise and that we can still reach them to get access
to all the information we saved before leaving the old hood.
this part of the operation the Testsims (step 3) are more important than
ever. It's now their job really starts as they will be first to deal with
each of the following steps. Even when we forget to mention it, the Testsims
will normally be sent ahead to test a feature or general conditions.
Before a Sim can move into
a hood of the future, that Sim must see the doctors at the CAS clinic.
The process is actually an addition to the work done by the Body Shop clinic
(step 4), but it is also possible to go directly to the CAS clinic without
seeing the Body Shop clinic first.
Visiting the CAS clinic is
needed both if you do transform a hood's population like we do in this
operation, but also total strangers will need to visit the CAS clinic.
As far as we know it's the safest way to enter the hood.
Thanks to the notes that
we gathered before we left the flat world, upon our arrival the CAS clinic
will know which recreation to import and what personality etc to go with
it. You can safely leave it all to this extremely talented clinic. This
clinic is a lot more advanced than the Body Shop clinic. In here each Sim
will be choosing from a lot more styles and accessories.
The facts that are essential
for any recreation and that can not be adjusted after you leave the CAS
If you are part of an operation
like ours, please respect that your stay in the CAS clinic will be limited
because there are so many Sims in line to visit. Keep in mind that finding
a "good enough" hair style and outfit will do for now. When you move into
a house, you will be able to change these things to perfection.
Personality trait (incl.
Aspiration (Fortune, Knowledge,
Family, Romance, Popularity)
Details that can be easily adjusted
after leaving the CAS clinic are:
Clothing (formal, everyday,
swim, sleep, underwear, sports)
Body size can be changed
later on, but it will then change to reflect your lifestyle which might
take some time.
The age might need some planning
because after leaving CAS you will most likely start the lifestage. Say
you are 50 years old, if you leave CAS as an adult you will be concidered
30 years old, but if you leave CAS as an elder you will be concidered 60
years old. Whatever you choose the age differences between your family
members will be most important. The only way to reach half way through
a life stage is to live, and that will affect all household members with
the same amount of time added to their age.
Your toughest decision might
be the age of your children. They can be toddlers, kids or teens. If you
have more than a couple children you might want to give them different
Life stages are:
As part of the stay the families
will be set up, family ties will be defined.

Have your locals recreated at the CAS clinic, household by household according
to some kind of line up that suits your all over plan. Make sure to take
each households photo before leaving CAS.
7 is one of the most important parts of the Transformation TS2 and the
Sims will have to live with their results for the rest of their lives!
If it wasn't for the creations by your local Body Shop clinic this step
will be even more time consuming.

STEP 8 : Training Center
here to send in your brief results from this step]
Some Sims had expressed wishes of adjusting eyebrows, noses etc at the
CAS clinic, but when they were able to choose among so many more hairstyles
and clothes, most of them were happy with the BodyShop recreation after
all, and were eager to enter the new hood instead of spending more time
in the clinic than needed.
Even so, this step took a pretty long time to proceed, because
Simmerville had about 80 Sims on the list. In addition we had the parents
non present parents recreated too, in order to have a bigger family tree
on each Sim's record. As soon as they left the clinic those old folks or
siblings living elsewhere were deported out of the household, but do still
figure in the family tree.
