So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

The Sims: Life Stories is a real-life simulation game for Windows computers. It is a cut-down, edited version of The Sims 2, including elements of the first three expansions (University, Nightlife, and Open for Business) designed to run smoothly on laptops and portable devices. It revolves around taking control of two Sims (Riley and Vince), each with their own story, but naturally a Free Play, open-ended mode is still included, just like other Sims titles.

Unused Graphics

To do:
Upload the wall and floor textures to the site.

There are wall and floor textures that are in the Textures.package file that go unused in both this game and its desktop counterpart (The Sims 2).

Leftover Sims 2 action text

Since the game is a modified version of The Sims 2, there are leftover text strings calling up actions from the base game and expansions that are still in the game's code. However, the actions themselves have been deleted and the code to call them up branched over and commented out. Using SimPE, one can find the text in some of the game's packages.

Sims 2 Housekeeping Robot

Another leftover is the housekeeping robot from the base game. The robot, however, is not functional and only its model data and texture files are left. Any actions it could perform in the base game, like the actions above, were deleted. In this case, the text also was deleted as well. All that can be used of the robot is placing its model on a lot, albeit unclickable.
