The Sims 2 Icon

You may know that Kaylynn Langerak never had proper memories in The Sims 2, because the developers never bothered to give her any memories, due to being a standard NPC Maid.

When the game developers created Kaylynn, it seems unlikely they knew that they'd be giving her more recognition, as a Romance buddy for Daniel Pleasant and Don Lothario.

  • Kaylynn uses one of the default Maxis face templates in Create a Sim - Face Template 16 "Archeeng".
  • Her first and last name were drawn from the list of EA and Maxis staff that helped to make the Sims 2.
  • She has no pre-set biography.
  • She has no pre-set memories, minus the CAS ones she sometimes gets after she is spawned in-game.
  • She has no gender preference.
  • Her pre-set fitness level is "thin". When viewed in SimPE, her fitness level is "5.0", midway between top "0.0" and bottom "10.0" fitness, the same as pre-made townies and other regular NPCs.
  • She has no family ties.
  • She might not even have been made by the developers, but randomly generated by the game itself.
    • This might even be the case of most the other pre-made townies and NPCs. Then the developers might have given Kaylynn some makeup to make her stand out as a prominent NPC.
    • Tellingly, this is also the case of Cassidy Pederson, yet she has no pre-set relationships with pre-made playable Sims.

I suspect the reason they decided to include Kaylynn as a playable character in The Sims 3 is due to the fact that they hadn't done so in The Sims 2. They probably wanted to give her more recognition than just an NPC maid from the Sims 2 who was romantically involved with Daniel and Don.

I was wondering about the memories that Kaylynn Langerak might have had in the Sims 2, had the developers made and released the Sims 3 first.

  • Several of these "possible" memories may be slightly messed up in terms of the timeline, but if anyone's to blame, it's the developers. All I did was try to piece together "possible" memories that Kaylynn might have had, using some of Don Lothario and Daniel Pleasant's memories for inspiration. I did my best to get them as accurate as possible (it may not be possible for the memories to be placed in a perfect order in terms of consistency, hence the memories the developers made).
  • I decided not to add a memory of Parker Langerak's death, since it's unclear how long he would have lived as an elder, or if he was still alive at the time of The Sims 2. If his aspiration metre was in platinum, he probably would still be alive.
