OK. I lied. Something came up that got in the way of my rebuilding efforts. I'm sorry that I've kept whoever reads this waiting for longer than I said it would take.
However, I am starting to feel that Nuidya culture has outgrown the game mechanics (again). I'm planning to write a series of novels about them instead of playing them as a Sims neighbourhood. Until that day comes, though, I'll still be blogging. Watch this space!
