Backstory[edit | edit source]

Backstory Render AS.png
Do it for science!

Science is everywhere around us, but at Aurora Skies it’s not just something you learn; it’s something you do! We need bright young minds to make the dreams of the future a reality.

Even now we’re finding more uses for garbage to help the planet. Charging batteries, powering machines - the sky is the limit. Just this last year we created a modified Hot Air Balloon using garbage as fuel and turning it into pure air with a pine breeze scent. Now you can have efficient travel and an amazing romantic adventure with no cost to the ozone (or your nose)!

Every year we’re creating more and more exciting things in the world of science. Garbage-powered hearts, heart-powered cars, solar-powered cats; what will you think of next! It’s all up to you. Do it for Science!

Did you know?

Hot Air Balloons are an epic form of travel based around the simple principle that hot air is lighter than cold air. They lift in the air based on the heat system in the balloon. Increasing the temperature of the air inside the balloon makes it lighter than the air outside and the balloon begins to float. More air is required to lift heavier things; that’s why the balloons have to be so huge! How cool (or hot!) is that?

Lots[edit | edit source]

84 lots in total are in Aurora Skies: 31 commercial, 21 empty and 32 residential lots.

Families[edit | edit source]

New families[edit | edit source]

Difficulty: 2
Simon Adamsson, Ericka Berge
Ericka's race to be mayor of Aurora Skies was hard fought and hard won. She's enjoying the high life with the love of her life and business mogul Simon, but life at the top isn't easy. With a surprise baby on the way, will their lives be all the better or will they start to topple?
Difficulty: 1
Yuri Apple
Yuri doesn't like to be tied down. Not home, love, career - nothing can keep her in one place for long. But lately she's been seeing resentment in the eyes of her son, Karl, who lives full-time with his father. Can she stay put long enough to be a mother to this growing boy or will their relationship be forever strained by her fickle nature?
Difficulty: 1
Adam Birch
Adam is handsome in spite of his muscles…or perhaps because of them. No one really knows because no one can remember a time when he wasn't bulked up and beautiful. Being a gorgeous star athlete with lots of adoring fans sure is hard work.
Difficulty: 3
Evan Clark, Jessie Clark, Wanda Clark
The eco-friendly atmosphere is what brought the Clarks to town. They love the Earth and they love their happy drama-free lives.
Difficulty: 3
Miriam Day, Angelica Diamond, Pedro Herrerra, Ciro Perry

Difficulty: 2
Jackie Elliot, Felicia Lin
Jackie Elliot and Felicia Lin are your run of the mill town residents. Stylish and sweet, these women could never be Jackie and Felicia, the jewelry and art thieves on the run from the law. Could they?
Difficulty: 1
Martina Frimann
Martina Frimann is Aurora's best kept secret; her culinary delights are works of art. The townspeople love that the best restaurant in the world is hiding here at home, but with a new journalist sneaking around town, will their secret get out?
Difficulty: 2
Andrea Hallur, Lara Hallur
Moving back in with her mother after her divorce was hard on Lara and even harder was leaving the light of her life, her daughter Kristin. She's happy that her unhappy marriage is over and her free spirit is free, but she wonders if she can really find joy in the second half of her life?
Difficulty: 1
Gunnar Hannes
What do you call an artist whose work isn't popular? Misunderstood! Gunnar knows that though his art isn't flying off the walls, it's only because the townspeople are jealous of his talent. One day they will know his true genius, but he's hoping it won't be after he's dead and gone.
Difficulty: 4
Karen Helgason, Karl Helgason, Kristin Helgason, Lief Helgason
Lief Helgason loves his 3 children more than he can say. So much so that he fought for custody in all three of his nasty divorces.

Can this single dad take care of his children alone or is wife number 4 on the horizon?
Difficulty: 3
Iris Ingberg, Jakob Ingberg, Jonas Ingberg

Difficulty: 2
Estella Olivia, Sophia Rios
Estella and Sophia came to town for a wild weekend that turned into an endless spree! Settling down is for losers and they're going to party well into their elders years. What will an unexpected baby do to these plans?
Difficulty: 2
Oskar Olsen, Emil Olsson
When Oskar lost his wife, Anna, he thought his life wouldn't go on. But it did! He moved in with his life long best friend Emil and they spent many happy years together in the sunset of their lives. When Oskar lost Emil, he thought his life wouldn't go on. And it didn't! But the bonds of friendship were too strong for the afterlife, so Emil and Oskar still spend their ghostly existence together in Aurora Skies.
Difficulty: 3
Arvid Oss, Edvin Oss, Josefin Oss
Josefin has been through all of the worst that the world has to offer, including the early loss of her husband. She works with all she has to protect her two sons from any more pain. She tries to teach her sons to stay on the right path, but will her close care cause them to rebel?
Difficulty: 2
Stefan Svard, Stein Svard
The Svard brothers have been trying to make it big in the music industry for as long as anyone could remember, but their legend doesn't extend past the bounds of town. Their talent is only hindered by a lack of funds, but they haven't given up hope! Stein continues to practice daily while Stefan works in Journalism to increase their cash flow. Will these two ever get their world tour?
Difficulty: 3
Jesper Sandstrom, Viktor Valquist, Linn Valstrom
Viktor Valquist and Jesper Sandstrom have been inseparable for years.

Now that Viktor has adopted a daughter, Linn Valstrom, their home is full of happiness and joy.
Difficulty: 2
Astrid Vinter, Tinna Vinter, Veronika Vinter
Astrid gives her all to not end up like her mother or sister. Bitter about life and love, they have a negative word to say about everything while Astrid likes her life happy and healthy. With her recent Miss Aurora Skies win and a new relationship with Gunnar Hannes, she has plenty to be happy about. Can Astrid shake off the negativity of the ladies in her life or is she doomed to their misery?
Difficulty: 1
Fjord Warbler
Fjord is a national treasure, a rock star, and the only celebrity in town. Being the only celebrity, she has to be eccentric enough for everyone and it's tough work! Now that she's about to become (*gasp*) an actual adult, she can't help but wonder if there is something more?
Difficulty: 3
Ari Wong, Jennika Wong, Rajita Wong
Rajita Wong doesn't know what to do with her husband. The whimsical charm of his wacky personality wore off...onto their daughter! It was all right when they were back home, but here in a new town it's time for a change. Can she fix her daughter's style before it's too late?
Difficulty: 3
Cassidy Wrede, Elin Wrede, Johan Wrede
Fish and Fitness is the name of the game for the Wrede family. If you can learn the dedication it takes to catch your biggest fish or lift your heaviest weight, you'll have all you need to know in life, right?

Returning families[edit | edit source]

Difficulty: 4
Bjorn Beaker, Erin Beaker, Gundrun Beaker, Loki Beaker
The Beaker family lives for friendly science in a friendly society. Gundrun and Bjorn were the leading minds in some of the cutting edge geo-technology that made the town what it is today. Now with two young children in tow they're thinking that perhaps it's time to take their love of science to another town, maybe someplace a little stranger?
Difficulty: 1
Magnus Mango
Magnus Mango is the military leader of Aurora Skies. When his younger cousin Maru wrote to tell him he was also the military leader in Sunlit Tides he couldn't be prouder! It doesn't help that insanity runs in the Mango family, but it does help that the military of Aurora Skies is just as unused as the military of Sunlit Tides.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Aurora Skies is Nordic-themed, focusing especially on Iceland.
  • With the return of the Beaker family, the timeline in Aurora Skies is confirmed to occur before The Sims 2 era.
  • Some community lots in Aurora Skies are assigned to be either visitors allowed or no visitors allowed, even though they should obviously be assigned to a more specific / suitable lot assignment. These include Björn Café (bar or hangout), Fiskar Fishing Park (fishing spot), Lend and Learn Library (library), Sundhöll Community Pool (pool), and The Blue Lagoon (bar or hangout).
  • All the Sims from the world lack individual personal biographies. All female playable Sims have the biography "The women of Aurora Skies seem to get prettier every year. I think there's something in the water.", while all male playable Sims have the biography "Something about Aurora Skies brings out the best in men... especially this one.".
  • Velkominn is the translation of 'Welcome' in Icelandic.
  • There is an issue in Aurora Skies where the snow is discolored in the winter, due to the terrain being too close to sea level. A player-created fix can be found here.
