The Sims 2/Strangetown
Strangetown is the second neighbourhood in The Sims 2. Strangetown is set in a desert landscape and has the appearance of Area 51, and has a number of crashed UFOs. There are a number of pre-made families and empty lots and community lots along the 'Road to Nowhere' which is the center of the town. The back story suggests that sims who get abducted by aliens arrive there (there is a townie of Bella Goth) and a number of alien descendants live in the area. This article reviews each of the sims and houses here.

Many of the ages seem illogical according to the storyline and Sims' personal memories, but Maxis is known for goofing up many storyline plots in the neighborhoods.
 Family Ties
The following information shows how all of the Sims listed are related if a relation exists:
Smith/Curious Relationship: Jenny Smith, Pascal Curious, Vidcund Curious, and Lazlo Curious are all siblings sharing the parents Glarn and Kitty Curious. Glarn has two daughters with Pollination Tech#9 Smith whose names are Chloe Singles and Lola Singles. The Smith/Curious sisters are not related to their roommates even though they oddly share a surname. Pollination Tech#9 also has 2 more children with his wife, Jenny Smith. They are Johnny and Jill Smith. Chloe and Lola have six half-siblings, Jenny Smith, Lazlo Curious, Pascal Curious, Vidcund Curious, Johnny Smith, and Jill Smith.
Subject/Spector Relationship: Nervous Subject, roommate of the Beakers, is the son of the elderly Olive Spector. His father's existence is unknown but it is implied that Nervous might actually be the Grim Reaper's son. Olive Spector is also related to Ophelia Nigmos, Johnny Smith's sweetheart. Olive is Ophelia's aunt seeing as Ophelia's mother, Willow, was Olive's sister.
Grunt Relationship: General Buzz Grunt is the father of the three Grunt children. Their mother left their father sometime before the game opens. The grave of Lyla Grunt, said mother, can be found in Olive Specter's garden.
Beaker Relationship: Loki Beaker is the husband of Circe Beaker and the brother of Erin Singles. All other relatives are dead or unknown.
Those not listed above don't have significant, if any, family relations to the rest of Strangetown residences. The above information was mainly gathered from observing the in-game family tree feature.
