The second generation

I have decided to change my Heir Law to First Born to make it easier as I messed up the random trait generation....oops.

So that means that Danica is due to take over as heir when Suzette dies. Danica is now a teen. I am working on memorializing Suzette still, Clive has his painting, to buy more time I gave her the potion of youth. Let's hope Clive can stay alive long enough to get his Guitar skill up to 8 so that he can write her a song.

Anders Legacy Family - the next Generation is born!

Soon after Clive moves into the Anders house they Try for a Baby together.... the first time she does not conceive, but the second time, boom! Preggers.

It's at this point that I start doing some serious remodelling of the house as I realised that the house needed to be in the centre of the lot. Blame my OCD for that. So I have wasted some cash but hey, Suzette's pretty high up in the Painter track now and can make $1500 from selling a masterpiece. So no big.

Before I know it Suzette has dropped her first sprog. It's a girl which they name Danica.

Soon after she gets knocked up again and this time it's a boy, Sawyer. Who will be the heir of Generation 2? I made a mistake and didn't use the Random Trait Generator for Danica, giving her the Music Lover (?) I think ... aspiration and Creative trait. I think that will automatically make her the heir this time but must make sure not to make that mistake again.. it's my first attempt at a Legacy family so I am learning as I go along.

The house now looks like this:

Danica is now a child and I really love this pic of her and her Dad.

Suzette the Homewrecker

Finally Suzette got some walls and a roof on her house. This is her first shed house. Compact and bijou. 

She worked her way up the career track with Painting. Soon bashing out the masterpieces with the best of them.

Once Suzette hit Adult, she set out to find herself a mate. Unfortunately the list of available suitors wasn't great. Some guy called JJ became a friend however he had the "Non-Committal" trait which I felt was probably a bad idea. She cultivated a few other friendships but the only one that kept ringing and calling round was Clive Lewis, a very sexy townie, but married to Somebody or other Spencer-Kim.

I decided to go with it as it seemed to be that they were establishing a real connection. So I had them go away on holiday. They were hitting it off well and had the first kiss soon followed by the first woohoo.  Strangely Clive suddenly went home in the middle of the getaway so Suzette decided to go home as well but she called him when she got home.... but he was busy!

However she called him again later and he came right over... A few more kisses and a woohoo later and she encourage him to leave his spouse. He did, but was then Very Sad for about two days.

He soon got over it.

Sims 4 Legacy Challenge

I haven't posted anything gaming related in quite a while so I think it's time!

I have been struggling to get into the Sims 4 but am not really sure why. I think what I need is a good Challenge to get me into it. I've heard a lot about the Legacy Challenge so am going to go with this. I'll update here on how it's going and post pics.

The basic rules of the Legacy Challenge are here:

But in a nutshell, you create a founder sim and move them into a 50x50 lot, and start from abject poverty. You then have to play through 10 generations of the family, handing the title of founder down to each successive generation.

My rules of succession will be as follows:

Gender - Equality.  Both males and females are eligible for the title of heir.

Bloodline - Strict Traditional.  Only naturally born children can be heir.

Heir - Exemplar. At the beginning name a single trait, which must be one of the founder's 3 traits.  Any eligible heir that has this trait will gain the title of heir.  If a single generation has no children with this trait,  or more than one exemplar, follow the First Born rule. **edit - I changed this later to First Born as I messed up the Random Trait Generation**

Species - Tolerant. The species of the child has no impact on their eligibility  for heir status.

Here's my founder Sim, Suzette Anders:

And this is her starter home. Walls are overrated.

Cash is tight right now.. I only just bought her a shower. She started with just a bed, fridge and toilet. She has the Painter aspiration, and the Creative trait which will be my Exemplar.  I have her in the painter career track so should work well. She's selling paintings every spare minute and working hard in her career. Once she gets to Adult I plan to get her married off, but for now she's cultivating a few friendships with men, hopefully one of them will be suitable!
