Windlebridge is a Sims2 hood - set in historical sim times, starting sometime late medieval, renaissance period.
The main hood is the village Windlebridge.
I play this hood with fairly strict rules:
Rotation: every session is 5 sim days, or 1 season. I play the families in class order: rich families, better off families, farmer families, other village families (shop owners ect), poor families, gypsy families. In uni subhood 1 rotation = 1 study year, or 2 semesters = 6 sim days.
Social: Sims of course meet randomly, but they tend to marry inside their class/group. They meet at church and at some gathering places like the Blossom Pond, and of course the Village Square and all the stores/services.
Economy: The founder generation gets housing, and some starting money according to their class. I dont play the maxis careers or any custom careers either. These sims live off their farming, fishing and businesses - or working for other sims.
Custom Content: Yes. Lots of it. I try to keep it themed. No TV:s, no electronical stuff but for some exceptions: an antique phone, moniques computer (the sun air version, as that one however super modern looks less intrusive, with some imagination it COULD be some writing paraphernalia, and not a computer. Fire alarms.
Life, fertility and death: I try not to interfere too much with the destiny of these sims. Twin births are however very very common, as families needed lots of children to get the workers needed for farms and businesses. Diseases kill - I use a disease hack that makes them more serious. Fires are a plague because of the use of open fire. There may be wars in the future..
Religion: the setting is at least imagined to be somewhat like northern Europe, somewhere late medieval - renaissance time, and the beliefs accordingly catholic, maybe post catholic but as I really like seeing nuns and monks around, this means the monasteries will be there for a couple of sim centuries more. They give a nice flavor to the stories and pictures. Church is a place for education and exchanging news, and for social events. There are also some heathens around..
Education and school: no schools for just anyone.. home schooling for the rich, and the nuns educate a selected few to prepare the better off families kids for university. Only male sims from these families can attend university - this will of course change one day, but not yet.
Travelling: Somewhere outside Windlebridge there is a larger world. Soon you will learn to know the town of Windleport, and from Windleport the great ships sail to far away places.. but very few but sailors and very rich people travel.
Hacks: oh yes. I will add more links and comments about them in the link collection.
