Generation 8 now stands at 23 members.  And that's still with 4 more houses to play in this rotation (only 3 of which have baby potential, as Dotty's single of course).  I haven't had a generation this big in...well, ever I think.  Unless it was generation 4, before I started caring about population control.  Most of the spare households have already been cut off at 2 kids, but the others (main house, Walter & Shirley, Danny & Sakura, Bruce & Rosalie) are not on such restrictions.  I'm (mostly) going to let them decide how many kids they want, and deal with the repercussions.

Five of them are Bruce & Rosalie's.  I swear she's gotten knocked up each and every time their ACR timers go off.  So right now she's got 4 toddlers (the twins will become children on day 1 of the next rotation), and a baby.  Her house is a nightmare.  She just rolled the want for 10 kids, and I locked it.  I've never done it before, and since she's already halfway there...well, I haven't made up my mind entirely one way or the other, but it does seem like something Rosalie would do.  Except it will require some major modifications to the house if I do so.

I'll have pictures (oh, do I have pictures!) soon.  I'm going to wait until the end of the rotation, then I need to crop them all.  Since the rebuild, I adjusted the settings so I could have my game play in the whole of my huge monitor (and not need to constantly adjust ratios).  But then I realized that the in-game camera didn't like my ratios and the pictures didn't look right, so I got Gadwin and have been using that and liking it so far.  But of course, it now means I need to crop ALL my pictures before I share them, because they're HUGE.  So I'll be doing it in batches after each rotation, and going from there.

23 kids!?! That's a lot!

4 toddlers at once? The only time I've ever had that many toddlers under the same roof was just after I'd installed the Triplets and Quads hack. I was most unimpressed.

It is a lot, especially after several generations of careful population control.

Yup, four toddlers at once. I've got an aging hack that makes 2 days = 1 year (and makes the ages more akin to real life), and an 18 hour pregnancy mod (because when 2 days = 1 year, 18 hours = 9 months), so the kids end up a lot closer in age. It's not exactly fun, but it does make things challenging again.
