Played an Asylum challenge involving townies today (because I was fed up of never actually getting to play them).
Ivy Copur is a fucking genius (well, genius for a sim. Meaning she feeded herself when hungry). Melissa and Goopy had a child that lasted two whole days before the social services came around. Sandy and Bruce killed themselves in a fire and then proceeded to murder everyone else in ghost form.
Tl;dr: if you don’t like Maxis townies you’re wrong.
