Insanity Family

The Kook Family Backwards ISBI!

Be Mine, Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day from the Kooks! I’m a little early but that’s okay since I probably won’t get to use the computer over the weekend. Plus, all the THs and their spouses are so dang cute I couldn’t wait to share! So here it is, Valentine’s Day – Sims 3 style. 😀

2015 in review

Author’s note:

Hello everyone! I hope all of you are having a great start to the new year and enjoyed the holidays. Like many people I’m looking forward to this year and making some resolutions – one being a regular posting schedule for this blog!

We have traveled far with this kooky family and I’ve amazed myself by making it to Generation Four. This is the furthest I’ve achieved in a legacy so far. And I want to thank each and every one of you for reading the story of the Kook family and taking this journey with me!

I wish you all well in your endeavors for 2016. Happy simming!


The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 5,300 times in 2015. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

Liebster Award


First of all I would like to say a HUGE thank you to Somebodysangel13 for nominating me for this award! This is the first time something like this has ever happened to me and it’s made me extremely happy!

This award helps to spread the word about great blogs with under 3000 followers. It’s a great way to share some love and learn about some interesting blogs.

The Rules:

1. Post the award on your blog.

2. Thank the blogger who presented the award and link back to their blog.

3. Nominate 5-11 bloggers whom you feel deserve this award and have fewer than or equal to 3,000 followers.

4. Answer 11 questions posted by the nominator, and ask your nominees 11 questions.

My Nominees:

The Danevbie Legacy – by sErindeppity: This is an amazing story and one I always look forward to reading. And sErin has been a big inspiration for me to keep going with my own story about this Kooky family.

The Kanto Legacy – by EarthQueenAmi: A casual rainbow legacy where the generations follow the Kanto region. The family members are fun to read about and they’re always getting up to stuff.

The Dysfunkshinul Legacy – by Gryffindork7 (Sam): Another inspiration to my Kooky family. The Langurds are a crazy bunch who don’t care about the rules. This story is full of laughs and fun Sims 3 shenanigans.

Insanity Doesn’t Compare – by Jax: An ISBI about a family who are just as crazy (if not crazier) than the Kooks! Jax is currently running a Bachelorette Challenge within the ISBI and it’s great fun to watch the victims… I mean contestants win the heart of the newest TH.

Future of the Fae – by Paige795: Another amazing story that I always look forward to reading. The universe the story takes place in is my favourite aspect!

The Lightning Alphabetcy – by Heather: While Heather also writes the Zale Family ISBI, I’m nominating her for this story because it’s the first legacy by her that I’ve read and I actually liked it’s switch to the Sims 4. And overall it’s fun to read with a household that’s always overflowing with kids!

Of Kings and Castles – by Tota: A Royal Kingdom Challenge with a laid back narrative to showcase the lives of the citizens of Castle Keep. The level of attention to detail in Tota’s sims and the surrounding medieval environment truly make this story come alive.

Questions Asked by Somebodysangel13:

1. Would you rather have a face clone heir or a Face One heir?

I would rather have a face clone heir. While I have trouble seeing Face Ones I think I’d rather try again with a face clone than breed out the genetics of a Face One. 🙂

2. If you could change one aspect of TS3, what would it be?

The “Ask for Bedtime Story” interaction for children. I’d say it’s one of the worst things for an ISBI! Maybe not take it out completely but tone it down a bit.

3. What is your favourite expansion pack? Why? (cliched, but a classic)

I can’t say I have an absolute favourite. I own all of them and use pretty much all of them during game play. I can say that the one I was most excited about buying was Supernatural since I love supernatural stuff. I have yet to incorporate anything Supernatural into the Kook BISBI though… hopefully someday!

4. Who is your favourite spare in your challenge/legacy?

Oh! That’s a tough one! I’d have to pick Hannah though, Anakin’s daughter from Generation One. Even though she wouldn’t have been an eligible heir she’s my favourite from all the alien pregnancies.

5. Who was the very first sim you created in CAS? Were they based on anyone?

I can’t even remember the very first sim I created. I started playing with TS1 when I was 11 years old (I think) and I’m now 25 so that was a VERY long time ago. I don’t think my first sim was based on anyone though.

6. If you could create a new TS3 EP, what would it be?

If I could I would create a Medieval/Fantasy expansion pack. They can go to the future, why can’t they go back in time as well? And on that note, why not go back as far as the Stone Age? The sims could have little dinosaur pets like the Dragons from Dragon Valley!

7. If you could only eat one food/meal for the rest of your life (assuming it could sustain you), what would it be?

Chicken. There is so much you can do with chicken.

8. What was your favourite childhood movie?

Besides anything and everything Disney? I watched, on a fairly regular basis, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Secret of the Ooze every time I went to see my grandparents when I was a kid. Eventually my family got sick of watching it with me and bought me the first one to watch at home.

9. Did you play video games as a child, or only started when an adult?

I played video games as a kid but only for limited amounts of time. For example 30 mins to 1 hour which is hard to get ANYTHING done, but it was my parents rule. They preferred it if I spent time in the GREAT OUTDOORS! *shudder* Lol. 😛 As I got older I got more into gaming.

10. What animal would you most want as a pet? (fantasy/extinct animals allowed!)

A white tiger… assuming it wouldn’t eat me. Currently I have a dog disguised as a cat though! I’m not even joking, my cat is the weirdest cat ever.

11. Do you believe in true love? Is there only one out there for everybody?

Yes, I believe in true love. However, I don’t believe true love only happens in a romantic sense. Take from that what you will. As for there only being one out there for everyone, no. True love is nurtured and cherished and takes time to grow into the wonderful thing that it is.

Questions for my Nominees:

1. Salty or Sweet? What’s your favourite snack food?

2. If you could BE any animal (real or fantasy) what would you be? Why?

3. Who is your favourite Sim you’ve ever created or had in a legacy/challenge?

4. Do you play any boardgames or card games? If yes, what’s your favourite? If no, why not?

5. Besides The Sims games, do you play any other console, PC, mobile games?

6. If someone wanted to turn your story into a novel/graphic novel would you let them? Would you change anything?

7. What is your favourite movie of all time?

8. Which Sims game do you like best (1, 2, 3, or 4) and why?

9. On the flip side, which Sims game (1, 2, 3 or 4) do you like the least and what would make it better? (Give as much or as little detail as you want!)

10. If you met a genie what would you wish for? (You have up to three wishes, share 1, 2 or all!)

11. What is your favourite day of the week?


Family Fun – Episode 1

Hello everyone!

I recently updated the family tree with pictures of the extended family. I thought it would be fun to post some larger pictures here because let’s face it, Ben provided some great genes for this family! Also, I wanted to use this post as a shout out to anyone looking for characters for their own stories. All spares and their children will be shown in “Family Fun” episodes. If you see a Sim you like I’ll post the download link for you! Just let me know in the comments and I’ll create a downloads page. 🙂


Generation One

It all began with this handsome guy right here:

Ben - ElderWhen I first met Ben Kook his scruffy beard and long hair obscured his amazing good looks. But I soon found out that all the ladies loved him. This man has had more heart farts than any other Sim I have ever played.

Of course, the lucky lady to catch him was this girl:

Cindy - YAThe thing that stood out most about Cindy were her eyes. I love the gold colouring, just as much as Ben’s purple eyes (which I’m still sad that they never got passed on).

Their first born son was this fella:

Anakin - YAAt first the black hair surprised me, but when I pulled a copy of Ben into CAS and aged him down the mystery was solved! Anakin’s black hair, large nose, and square jaw very much resemble his father.

Anakin had a fun night with an alien:

Zolada Xi'CokemeqWell, I think Zolada Xi’Cokemeq had more fun that him. I find it funny how in TS2 only male aliens could impregnate male Sims, while in my game in TS3 they’re all female aliens. Just an observation.

Anyway, they had a daughter:

Hannah - YAThe lovely Hannah, the very first alien child I have ever had in any of my games to successfully grow up (and by that I mean the game didn’t crash or glitch so bad I had to scrap it). I never did get the time to write the story I was planning for her. Maybe someday.

When Anakin was thrown into the clutches of Story Progression it didn’t seem like he would ever have more kids. He was a ladies man just like his dad. But eventually he met this lady:

Lina LancasterLina Lancaster from Lucky Palms. I don’t like her mouth. That’s all I’m going to say. Even though they never actually married, Anakin and Lina were together forever and had two kids:

Kristen LancasterTheir first born is Kristen, who has a striking resemblance to Kim! I see it in the lips and jaw line. You can tell they’re related!

Cruz LancasterThis is Cruz, their second child. I don’t know where that orange hair came from, maybe a grandparent on Lina’s side, but I like it! Again, there is a strong resemblance to Ben with that square jaw and that big nose! Definitely a family feature among the Kook men!

Going back to Ben and his wife Cindy, their second child was Kenneth:

Kenneth - AdultSince he became the Second Generation TH all of his children an their children will be shown in Episode 2. I just want to take a moment to point out that nose again. That is one hard nose to breed out, thanks Ben!

Just like Anakin, Ben also had some run-ins with aliens. First he met Eshehic Vajjevoo:

Eshehic VajjevooI know, I know, she looks exactly like Zolada. But I swear they’re not the same alien. I kind of wish they didn’t ALL look the same.

Ben and Eshehic had a son together:

Frankie - YAFrankie grew up with Anakin and Kenneth, but none of them ever became really close. When Frankie left the family home story progression was kinder to him. After a few failed relationships he finally met his wife:

Pansy KookSay hello to Pansy Northrop (now Kook) from Lucky Palms. I love her blue eyes. Frankie and Pansy had two kids together.

Their first son:

Pablo KookPablo Kook. He looks very much like his father. However, he rocks that orange hair!

And their second son:

Curt KookCurt Kook. And what’s this?! A NORMAL nose? And normal eyes, aside from being totally black! It looks like Ben black hair has been passed down as well. I thought it would take ages to breed out that skinny nose, but I guess not! Just luck of the gene I guess.

Ben’s fourth child was, again, with an alien. This time he was abducted by Axane Qomiphash:

Axane QomiphashYou’ll see her later on. Apparently abducting one Kook male wasn’t enough, she just HAD to get her hands on another one. That made the family tree as kooky as the family themselves, but more on that in another episode.

Ben and Axane had a son:

Lee - YALee was born close to the time Kenneth took over as TH. Ben pretty much did his own thing at that point but he was still there for his fourth son. It was always funny to think of Lee and Kenneth as half-brothers when Kenneth had to scold him for skipping school or playing a prank.

Eventually Lee was sent out into the world where Story Progression caught him. SP never seems to let the family members settle down quickly, but Lee found love with this woman:

Felicia KookFelicia Lin from Aurora Skies. She looks a little on the thin side with those hollow cheeks. Felicia and Lee only had one child before Felicia became an elder:

Davon KookMeet Davon, another descendant to get Ben’s black hair! I kind of wonder now if the green hair ever gets passed along. So far it hasn’t shown up, maybe further down the bloodline it will.

Ben’s last child is a daughter with Shuyel Exipeth:

Shuyel ExipethAgain, another elder. With the SAME face. Ugh. Anyway, as I mentioned they had a daughter:

Natalie - ChildIt’s sad that Natalie will never know her mother or father. Ben passed away when she was still an infant, and her mother shows up as a ghost in the portrait for the family tree. Natalie is being raised by Ben’s granddaughter, Kim. Kenneth is around, but he’s never paid much attention to his only sister. Still, I have high hopes for Natalie when she grows up. When she has kids of her own I will add a Part 2 for this episode. Just because she’s the youngest doesn’t mean she has to be left out!


Thank you everyone for reading! I’d love to hear your thoughts on the many kids and grandkids of Ben! Also, if you would like any of these Sims (the spares or their children) just let me know. I’d be happy to post a Mediafire download link for you!


Special Update!

Hello everyone!

I have a special update for you! I’ve played ahead a bit and LOTS will be happening in the next few chapters. HOWEVER! I know many of you are dying in anticipation of seeing Dimitri turned real! Since IF dolls have a tendancy to be face ones/pudding faces when they become real and I’m terrible at recognizing face ones/pudding faces I’m going to give you a sneak peak!

Drum roll please!






Screenshot-225TA-DA! Say hello to Dimitri Kook! What do you all think? Personally I think he’s a cutie but I’m biased because I love his hair and eyes! Let’s have a poll: Keep Dimitri just the way his is or make some changes so he’s not a “face one” (if he is a face one, I honestly can’t tell.)




Hello and thank you everyone for voting on the poll! Here are our results!

poll results

I am very happy with this. 😀 I wanted Kim to have a diverse family but I wasn’t sure if my readers wanted the same. But it looks like they do! Now that we have our result I’ll have another chapter out soon!

Thanks everyone!

Opinions Please

Hello everyone! As you might have guessed I would like to hear your opinions.

Kim doesn’t seem to actually like any guy she has ever met, but she looked after Natalie and Xavier pretty much on her own. I’m not so much worried about finding a spouse, I just want to know what babies you want to see for this generation since we have a couple of options!

Kim has a wish to woohoo with an alien. It’s only a matter of time before she meets one given how the aliens LOVE this family. She can also make a potion (not yet but we’re working on it) to make her IF real! So, that being said, we have the options of alien babies or IF babies. Or Kim can have both and we’ll have an interesting heir vote!

Also, since this is the third generation Kim has to have the fertility treatment LTR. So either way we’re going to have a big family this generation! 😀

Please let me know what you think using the poll below!

Thanks! 😀


Bachelorette Challenge Submission!

Hey everyone! This isn’t a regular Kook post. No sir. This is a submission post for Jax, writer of Insanity Doesn’t Compare!

As the title suggests, Jax is doing a Bachelorette Challenge! So let’s meet my contestant: Spencer Goodwin!


Spencer: WHOA! Talk about a close up!

Well I was trying to let everyone see your cute face but ya ruined it.


Spencer: Eh. Sorry. Haha… ha ha. Um, hi?

You are not going to make this easy for me, are you? Quit acting like an awkward teenager!


How about a body shot. All you have to do is stand still and strike a sexy pose or something.

Spencer: Ya know, it’s a really nice day out.

Pay attention! We’re supposed to be showcasing you for the Bachelorette Challenge. Show them all how you’re the guy to beat in this competition!


Spencer: Whoops! Ow! That was my ankle.

*Facepalm* I really hope you’re even accepted at this point. Help me salvage your image and tell me what you like to do with your free time.


Spencer: Well, I’ve always been good with my hands!

Where did you…?

Spencer: Oh these things? They’re the tools of my trade! Never know when the mood will strike to create a masterpiece!

Ok, put those away before you hurt yourself.


Spencer: But, I’ve never hurt myself, well not badly anyway…

Don’t look so put out! How about you tell me about your greatest skill?


Spencer: That would be my guns bro! Look at these beauties!

Ok, don’t strain yourself. You’ll have lots of time later to show off your “guns” to the lucky lady.


Spencer: *sigh*

…You’re going to make me ask, aren’t you?

Spencer: *sigh*

Fiiiine! What’s the picture you’re holding?

Spencer: Oh, nothing special. It’s just my parents. I’m an only child so personally I want a huge family!

Well large families are a lot of fun!


Spencer: So, how’d I do?

I think you did fine. Even if we started off a bit rocky, but hey! At least you showed your true colours! Haha! Get it?!

Spencer: Very funny. Ha. Ha. *eye roll*

Hopefully you’ll see more of Spencer in Insanity Doesn’t Compare!

Having a Little Issue

I just posted the next chapter but I noticed that, for my view at least, there is no quick link at the top of Chapter 3.1 to get to Chapter 3.2! Usually it just shows up so I don’t know why it isn’t.

If you have any suggestions on how to fix it, please let me know. Or if this issue isn’t happening for you and I’m just weird, please also let me know! If you do experience this issue on my blog and it bothers you, also let me know. 🙂




Goodbye 2014! What kind of Kookiness did we get up to this past year?

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,200 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

Click here to see the complete report.

From the Author:

I would like to thank each and every one of you who has checked out my blog over the past year! I have lots of fun playing this crazy family, and even more fun writing about it and reading your comments! I’m so happy this blog has done this well so far and I hope to keep improving. And maybe give you some slightly regular updates! I would like to wish everyone a very happy new year and all the best for 2015! I can’t wait to see what kind of Kooky this family can come up with next! 😀
