Welcome to the New Eden Community Blog

Recently branched off from the older community of Eden, many younger residents have chosen to move away from their ancestoral land to a different location, called New Eden. Although most residents still hold closely to their family ties and history they are eager to start a new life in a place they can make their own.

Moving In: The McMillian Family

James McMillian is a more recent transplant to New Eden, unlike most of the residents of the neighborhood, he didn't move here from Eden. He's originally from Apple Valley. He became acquainted with the area when his brother began dating (and later married) an Eden native, Suzanna Carr. Employed in the architecture and construction field, James was naturally interested in the move to New Eden and the building and city planning process. After exchanging a few e-mails with Robin Young about the types of building materials being used and what grade of asphalt was being used on the streets, he was offered a job by the neighborhood to access the construction work that had been done so far and oversee any future projects.

Taking his job seriously and wanting to make sure his choices were what the sims of New Eden wanted, James set to networking immediately after moving to New Eden. When their time came in the rotation for the first few sim days, every household knew to expect a phone call survey from James about what they liked about New Eden so far and about what improvements they would like to see made. As you would expect, some sims were more eager to share their opinions than others.

James' efforts towards networking weren't only for professional reasons, but also for personal reasons. As a newcomer to New Eden and one of the only sims here who wasn't already familiar with the neighbors he was interested in becoming acquainted, making new friends, and as a single sim, he was also keeping an eye out for a potential date. Unfortunately many of the sims he met were already married . . .

 Or married and pregnant . . . 

Or had no interest in construction (any woman who wants to be with James has to accept that construction isn't just his career, it's one of his passions)

But sometimes someone who seems to take interest in his building surveys on the phone . . .

turns out to be rather obnoxious in person.

James doesn't mind that true love hasn't come to him as quickly and easily as it did with Bradford and Suzanna.  He's enjoying his life and work in New Eden.  Making friends with the neighbors, redesigning and remodeling his own bachelor pad and keeping busy with his work, redesigning the local art museum and boarding school for the junior and senior high school kids.
