That sounds awesome teal. I can't wait to see the end product. :)

Cece, I downloaded Chale and Ximena, and I think they both have cc hair. Chale's hair looked different in his photo than when I opened him in CAS. Also, Ximena had that long pony tail, and when I went to pull her up, my game crashed. I'm guessing it's the cc hair that did it, but who knows. Whenever you get a chance, would you mind uploading her without any cc? I would LOVE to use her in my game (she looked beautiful in the thumbnail photo), but if it's too much of a hassle, don't worry about it.

So sue me. I updated early. >_>

This isn't my best work but I like it. I'm trying a new writing style that I think suits this generation. I think its shaping up to be my favourite one if all goes according to plan. (And thats saying something. I'm in love with Louna's gen)

Ch. 102 : Make Up Your Mind! http://starrsimslegacy.blogspot.com/2011/08/ch-102-make-up-your-mind.html

EDIT: Oh shoot! I thought I'd uploaded them minus CC but you're right. I forgot with them. I just assumed it would change them to base game hair but I never imagined it would crash your game. I'm so sorry! I'm playing again tonight so I'll repost her with non-CC hair.

Just in case you wanted the links though, both their CC hair is from here.

Hi guys!
I'm new to the site, I've been downloading stuff for a while from here, but i've never before done a sims legacy challenge.
So I thought I might try this one out.
Do I post my roll here? Or do i post it in my first chapter?

You can post here if you like. Or you can post it in your blog, or both.

Thanks Cece. I appreciate it! :) (And don't worry about the crash. I didn't lose anything.)

Hi ekmidenisi! Welcome! This was my first attempt at a legacy too, and I'm really enjoying it. It's great for first time challengers, imo. Can't wait to read your blog!

This is just an introductory post, it's not actually part of the legacy, although i think it explains quite a lot of Miguel's (my character's) and the house's background.
I hope you enjoy it.

soooo.... no other posts in the last hundred hours? (I exaggerate, of course)

Here's that re-do of Ximena, Buckley. I put her with my fav non CC hair. It's from late night but I think it should be fine and shouldn't crash. If it still doesn't work let me try one more thing. (Which I was just too lazy to do tis time because it required more then one mouse click).

You may of course change her in whatever way you see fit, I just ask you keep her hair colour the same as a tribute to dear Redhead.

... I'm flying on three hours of sleep here. Ignore me please.

Buckley: I know! Martin is like a technical genius!

:rofl: Thank you. In fairness, it is my job :p

Actually, I do have some advice :p Sounds like your MBR is corrupted. You'll need to run a Startup Repair. (the reason Vista isn't doing it is because you need the disk... it just fails to tell you that)

check this out:http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/how-to-make-a-windows-vista-repair-disk-if-you-dont-have-one/

Once you have your repair disk, then follow this: http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/91467-startup-repair.html

You may need to repeat up to 3 times.

But I couldn't help but notice how nice and family wise that house looks!

any chance theres a download link ;D!?

Redhead Creations
1st Sep 2011, 8:49 PM
It's taken a long time to get it to look family-like, Sophie. Haha For a long time it was practically empty because it took all my funds to build it!

I built the house from scratch, not downloaded, so there's not a link for it. But perhaps once it's finished I could package it up. It's still very much a work in progress right now. =)

I spent forever on Stella's bedroom, and it's not even very complex. x.x

SimmingStarfish
1st Sep 2011, 9:07 PM
I bet it depleted your funds very quickly xD
And sure thanks that would be much appricated!

And may I also ask, I see you have little photos around on coffee tables and such... may I ask how you've done this and how you've actually got them into them places (especially the ones with the twins!)
I did try using the phone to take a picture but the triplets just wouldn't stay still!
ever so annoying!

Redhead Creations
1st Sep 2011, 9:17 PM
Oh, believe me, it's VERY ANNOYING. Haha I have the camera from the World Adventures expansion and I used the "moveobjects on" cheat to place them side by side and had Faith stand in front of them with the camera and directed her to take a picture. Then I just waited for the right moment and snapped the pic.

However, the cameras are bugged and sometimes your sims will get completely frozen after taking a picture and have to be reset which means the picture is lost as well. It's really incredibly frustrating.

[EDIT] I don't use poses in my storytelling pictures, but I think I *am* going to start using poses for the in-game family photos. It's just so much easier that way. In fact, I've already started doing it, so if you keep an eye out you may see an example soon! =)

SimmingStarfish
1st Sep 2011, 9:26 PM
Ahh I see!

Tbh I have never EVER used the photos and placed them I never knew you could!

And yes I experiance that too ;(

Them freezing is very annoying! especially when you do reset sim and haven't saved it before hand... then having to completely reset the game!

And also if you don't mind... I am going to use the world ou used because it looks very nice!

It's a different challenge. Found here: http://buckeygirl80.blogspot.com/p/intro-and-rules.html

Theres a forum on there too I think if you have any questions on it. I'm not blogging it so I don't know anything else about it but whats on that page.

Buckley: JUDGING JUDGING JUDGING.... Okay I'll go read it now ^^

Also I officially have no idea whats happening in Ximena's generation anymore. I'm editing the next chapter and the photos are leading me into a completely different plot line. One I hadn't planned for at all. I just hope its not as bad as I fear it may be.

Cece: I'm having the same issue, too. Perhaps this is bad when you let the Sims decide your plot, it leaves you with no wiggle room!! I feel like I'm flying blind!! But I love your story and know that it'll all come out amazing in the end. =)

Colleen: Thanks! Little known fact, Adrian from CDreams' legacy made a small unseen cameo and is the one who designed the room. (where is that girl, anyway?? She brought us an amazing time traveling plot and then left us hanging! haha).

Hopefully the house will be finished soon and then I'll package it up. Unfortunately, it's on a 60x60 lot as when I started the legacy, I thought that was part of the rules, so it might not fit in most people's neighborhoods...

Welcome back Emma!

So, I've finally got Brooklyn Heights set up and I've started playing my new legacy. I've been working on setting up my blog for it as well. I don't have a first chapter yet, as I need to play more to get material for that. But I do have a page you can all preview if you like, an alphabetical list (with pictures) of all the families I added to the neighborhood before getting started. As I mentioned before, I recreated a bunch of Sims 2 premades, imported some Sims families from other 'hoods, and used some of the clones from other legacies.
I didn't get representatives of all legacies in in the first generation, but plan to add more as generations progress.
http://romanrandomlegacy.blogspot.com/p/who-lives-in-brooklyn-heights.html


Emma, I recently discovered I have a problem with Tyson's clone. When I selected him in CAS, his skin was black, like Grim's is when he's not in his robes. Is he using a custom skin? That's the only thing I can think of that causes that.

Thank you! I *almost* cheated. Whoops.

My Medieval Lit. course would be fun if they assigned novels/plays that I haven't read before. I'm in my Senior year of College and I'm done with one of my degrees, so I'm just sort of taking filler courses until I finish my second degree, and this class is one of them. It honestly gives me major deja vu... like I'm reliving my early College years. THE HORROR! <--I'm not kidding. That thought will fuel my nightmares. :rofl:

Also, I love your new blog. I already said so in the comment section... but I don't care; I'll say it again. Even if it is just an introduction. ;)

I like this chapter! ^^ Gen Eight heir is born, and Nero contemplates a career change (among other things).

Also I'm seriously loving gnomes. I can't believe I never had them in my legacy before!

I love Gen Eight's Heir, what a cool name :)

I'm probably forced to move AGAIN, stupid game can't even last a freaking generation. It's evil, I tell you!
So I'm considering two things. One, stay in Brooklyn Heights, but have some big explosion killing at least 3/4 of the population (because I think all the people is a reason why I can't keep the dumb file alive. Two, get Isa, Calloway, Irish, and Kipp to move to their home planet, where ever that may be :) And yes, Kipp and Calloway will be from the same place but won't be related or anything.

Red, how do you change the color of the photo frames because when i go on Create a style it just changes certain bits of the frame?

Sophie, I didn't do anything special, just edited it in CAS. I believe (from memory) that the top channel is the one that changes the frame color...

Melissa, really looking forward to the start of your new legacy!!

Hey Emma! Hope you had a good trip, and I can't wait for an update!

Red, I am excited to see what this "special project" is. You've piqued my interest.

And to everyone else, I need clarification about the generation goal. My founder rolled awesome for her goal, and I'm not sure when I have to get it done by. Is it before the next heir becomes a Y/A (and thus starts generation 2) or before my founder reaches elder-hood? Or can it just be sometime before she dies? (I should probably know this by now, but I don't. Or else I can't remember. Lol. Anyway, thanks.)

CinderEmma
3rd Sep 2011, 6:44 AM
Thanks Buckley, I did have a great trip :) Very relaxing, with lots of one-on-one time with my mom :)
I haven't uploaded Ned and Nathalie yet, they're among the first of the legacy list to be uploaded though. I want to work on it tomorrow, today I had to fight through a s***load of glitches. I nearly had to move the whole legacy away, but I found a file that's only a few days off but doesn't have the glitches (I'm manually aging them in the morning)...and doesn't have my clone. I just made a Tyson clone via CAS in Edit Town and put her in there instead. I'll NEVER use the clone voucher again! In the morning, I'll show some pics of some of the nasty stuff that was going on 0_o

QUESTION:

No, you can only make money from doing whatever career you rolled. Only Sims in the Artist career can sell paintings. You can do any opportunities that come up, those sometimes pay money. And if you invest in community lots, you can make money from that. Also, if your Sim uses the telescope and discovers a star, you can keep whatever money comes from that.

Edit:
Here's some requested Sims from the newlegacy. The DA characters, Alistair, Morrigan and Leliana. In game I'[m using a long Store hair on Leliana. But I packaged her in the short base game bob that is somewhat similar to her DA hair.
Darren Dreamer in game had CC hair and facial hair, I swapped them for base game hairs in the package.
Thornton Wolff had CC facial hair, I put him in a base game chin strap for the DL.
And Meadow Thayer's CC hair was swapped for an AMB hair.
All Store content was removed, some EP stuff was used.
Darren is Adult, Meadow and Dirk are teens, the others are all YA.

I use mostly imgur or photobucket; just because I've been using them both for ages.

Flickr seems fine; I'm unfamiliar with it though so I can't really help you with your sizing issues. *Usually* the site has an option to automatically size it to message board standards (at least imgur and photobucket do) upon upload, so I would just fool around with it a bit until you figure it out.

Sophie, I'm sorry, I really don't know why your picture frames are doing that. I'm not using the digital ones, just the default frames that come out of the camera. It may have something to do with your graphic settings? I just really don't know. Sorry! =(

Were the gems in your family inventory or your personal inventory? There is (was?) a glitch with the architectural design career where objects in your personal inventory would disappear into your family inventory and become unclickable/unusable. It happened when the architect would go into design mode, but as far as I know it only affected their personal inventory.

I would have a camera or a car in the personal inventory, and then it would magically appear in the family inventory. It would almost always be stuck there, and I never figured out how to get it back.

Your glitch sounds a bit different than that one, but I thought I would mention it in case you were unaware, as you might want to be careful with whatever objects you keep in Donoph and Stella's personal inventories. I'd hate for you to lose any of your family's valuables.

As far as the gems, I really don't know. That's peculiar for sure. I hope you can figure it out, cause that spire cut rainbow gem sounds awesome. Good luck! :)

NutsAndDolts
4th Sep 2011, 11:51 PM
Oh my gosh. That must be what happened. *cries* Donoph is in the architectural design career.

The stuck items are in family inventory, but I was wondering WHY they were there, since I was sure they were in a sim's inventory. =(

To get it back, I guess I'd have to import another copy of Wren with all of the family's nonsense, and then find the one gem. I don't care too much about the giant supernovium, but I worked very hard for the spire cut rainbow gem. Gathering that much Tiberium was no easy thing.

Personally, I love Morand. So yeah, that was heartbreaking. But amazing at the same time. Great job, Red!

Nuts, I'm really sorry to hear that. I was hoping it was something else. Glitches can be SO frustrating! Your idea about importing Wren's family and getting their gem could definitely work. I think Master Controller has a feature that allows you to transfer items without actually having to make the Sim active, so that could help. Whatever you end up doing, I hope you can figure it out.

The importing YA-Wren did work. It was just annoying. It seems the architectural design career is riddled with glitches, just like the stylist career (which I enjoyed more, at least).

Yeah I haven't changed over to the new blogger, and I'm hoping I don't have to. xD Took me forever to figure out THIS blogger version.

School shouldn't be too bad for me this semester because the classes I'm taking are pretty basic, and I'm pretty much a genius when it comes to homework and time management (I make charts!) but I just like slowing down my updates because I'm planning on hitting the gym more this year and THATS what kills my time management.

... I should invest in a watch, I'm thinking.

EDIT: And yes, Redhead's tribute made me cry. My sisters watched it with me the second time and then wondered if there was something wrong with me. They did understand it though, and they don't read the stories, so theres that. They just thought the girl under the rubble was his daughter at first. But thats cleared up right after so *shrug*.

I think I go overboard, haha. My pics take up almost the whole page, and then if you click em, they get even bigger!

I did the same, read HP7 in one sitting, though you definitely have me beat on the time, I think I was done around 11am...

Fast readers are a different kind of learner, Emma. Its a brain thing we have. Visual learners tend to have it. When I read a book its rare for me to spend over a day on it. I usually get bored with something if I have to spend more then a day with it, which I blame on my short attention span. Wether or not that has something to do with my reading... i dunno.

It also might just be ADD. If something bores us, we can't concentrate on it. But if it interests us, we obsess over it night and day until its mastered (or our attention have moved onto something else). I've got a mild form of ADD. Not strong enough for pills, but hard enough to give me panic attacks sometimes and affect my behaviour.

CinderEmma

I'm a very visual learner, I definitely "see" words and so it's a strength. And my Autism has similar features to ADD in that when I focus, I FOCUS. Sometimes it's a pain, because I always seem to miss guys flirting with me, which people always point out later. Hey, I was focusing on not being a moron in public, I missed the really cute guy! I do have a pretty good attention span otherwise though, so no ADD for me :)

Oh gosh I'm a terrible flirt... I always lead guys on and then dump them when they try getting too close. *Shudder* Trust me, boyfriends aren't worth the trouble. The many I've had were just boring.

My "girlfriend" is a bit better, but since we're working on a large entertainment project together we thought it would be best to just be friends so feelings wouldn't get in the way. I don't know how people stick in relationships for so long. I wouldn't have time to do anything if I had a boyfriend!

I keep missing people's update posts. I'll go read (and comment) on your update tonight Emma. Sorry I missed it.

I'm a visual learner, but a super slow reader. I just like to take my time and absorb/visualize what I'm reading. I'm just weird like that I guess. I'm also ADHD, diagnosed when I was 17 and been prescribed meds for years. I rarely take them though, lol. I'm not really sure how it affects my reading style. I've always been slow.

And Emma, I don't know that you will hurt people's feelings by not subscribing to (or reading) their blogs. At least, it doesn't bother me (I shouldn't speak for others). Just read the ones you want. :)

ReyaD
5th Sep 2011, 6:37 AM
I know there's about a half dozen blogs that I mean to subscribe to, but just forget to when I read an update. I'm not mean, I'm lazy.

EDIT: Also Buckley go update. Seriously. I will take you off my active list.

Haha Cece. I'm trying to make my next update *somewhat* interesting, and it's kicking my butt. Badly. I just need to suck it up and admit defeat (as in another boring chapter, lol), but I'm fighting it.

Oh my gosh speaking of Harry Potter.. this kid I used to tutor in writing and I talked for four hours about random characters from books we've both read and what Hogwarts house they'd fit into.

Doing LOTR was quite fun. (I also never realized how much of a nerd I was until this very second. wow.)

I rolled for my new legacy: Single Parent, 3 kids, Architect, Perfect Children and Joker. I'm actually glad I got an Ambitions Job and the Joker, that gives me more time for Perfect Children. With the Architect, I don't actually have to work, and I don't have any Misc. Fun to make sure I'm fulfilling. The new legacy blog is coming up soon, hope you'll read it!

With Ambitions jobs, you can not work but still get paid your stipend. That makes single parenting easier.

I have been using Twallan's mods NutsAndDolts, I had 4 files, but three of them were corrupted because of my stupid clone. I had one file left that's pre-clone, and I've been playing from there. But now that it froze, I'm freaking out that file is dead too!

This laptop keyboard is making me furious, Im gonna have to physically remove it

And yes, STOP SULKING. :) I want more Isadora!

I can't get into the game for the first one yet, so Error Trap doesn't work. The other one...there's too many glitches.

I have my family saved in various forms, so they will survive no matter what. It's more that I may want to cry if I have to move them again. And then I have to move Thorne's family, and Calloway and his family, and Kipp and his family.
And I'm sleepy, so I won't try again tonight. I hope it was just a fluke for that one file.

ReyaD
6th Sep 2011, 5:45 AM
I hope it was just a fluke, Emma. I'd be so sad if you had to go through all that work again. My game hasn't been terribly bad with glitches so far (Unlike my first legacy that because unplayable during gen three) its just been rotten with lag. I swear half of the scenes in my chapters are taken over two separate in-game days. I have to start romancing at 1 a.m. sim time in order to get a proposal in half decent light around twilight. Luckily it isn't so bad somedays. Like today. I went through a full sim week in only a few hours.

... Also I just realized how ahead I am in game. River Wren just had her teenage birthday in game. I might want to go edit my chapters now for posting this week...

Oh and CyyKosis, i was just about to PM you an update threat xD. I read it on my Iphone so I'll go post a reply now that I'm on my laptop. I am also very happy that you are not dead. ^^ Dead people make me sad.

CyyKosis

Emma, if you do have to move, use Twallans Porter mod. It preserves relationships when you use it to pack multiple families.

That's terrible, Bones!! Sounds like everyone is having a string of issues. =(

I had the "disappearing screenshots" episode last night and just about FREAKED OUT, until I realize that I had tried 'archiving' older pictures into a different folder because it was taking forever to load up 2500+ pictures and that the new pictures were being renamed "Screenshot-1", etc. Gah. So, I put them all back in so that newer ones would go at the bottom and not the top.

I hope everyone gets their issues sorted out!

PS: Bones, you should DEFINITELY check out Twallan's "saver" mod - it prompts you to save the game at regular intervals, has saved my life SOOOO many times!

It is REALLY hard to resist updating daily.

Ch. 107 : Perfect http://starrsimslegacy.blogspot.com/2011/09/ch-107-perfect.html

I made the Porter family for Neverglade, basing them off of two characters from the original series I've been working on. Joy was the middle child (of five) and by far my favourite. She's just so innocent and... well... dumb. I was planning on only including her as a friend but as you'll see in the upcoming chapter she sort of forced herself into the story.

CinderEmma

Good updates guys, going to bed early tonight because I got to register for school tomorrow. Hopefully I can start next Monday!

ReyaD
7th Sep 2011, 7:46 AM
Best of luck, Emma.

So today I switched households to get some photos (I didn't save my progress so nothing would be screwed over, and I'd just do what I needed to through cheats afterwards) and I LOVE what SP did with the Starr family while I was away. Nero and Mena were pregnant again, Joven reached the top of his part time job, and River Wren got knocked up by her boyfriend. When I left them in game she didn't even have a boyfriend.

... I was so tempted to keep that part of SP when I reloaded the game but nah. Still though. SP makes me laugh. Half the time I'm loving it. The other half I wish it were dead.

calisims
7th Sep 2011, 2:43 PM
SP keeps changing my plans in my current generation. Sometimes it's a pain, but it's also fun to work SP events into the story.

Redhead Creations
7th Sep 2011, 3:38 PM
That's a great thing to do for fun, Cece! I'll have to try that, as I have to switch households sometimes to get pics for the family tree. Next time I do that, I'll let the game go for awhile to see what SP does with the family. Who knows, it might offer up good story ideas. Haha

CinderEmma

Oh, that sucks! The whole game, or just the file? Have you tried restarting the computer? Or maybe reinstall the game, taking care not to delete any saved games?

Oh, btw, Irish will soon be sporting (if she hasn't already) her bluer hair in the legacy. It still looks like her hair, just that the blue highlights are lightened and are put on the tips. It looks cool! It still looks like her hair too, only a bit bluer :P

I have searched through the MTS forums and they all suggest updating video drivers... but mine are all updated according to my computer. I might have to start a new thread and see if anyone can come up with a new solution. Until then, I'm just fooling around and hoping for a miracle. I have about a five chapter buffer, so I'll at least have those five to publish... but nothing beyond that, sadly.

Yep... so the Dennis Legacy (besides the four chapters [I thought it was five]) will be kaput. My computer apparently isn't good for running Sims 3 (even though it is moderately above the minimum requirements) and I'm most likely going to have to buy a new computer in order to play again. I'll keep trying to see if I can somehow fix it this weekend, but the odds don't look good. Laptops... who needs 'em? *shakes fist*

CinderEmma

Maybe you can transfer the saved game files to the new computer? After all, it's the computer, not the file, that's gone kaput.

Papermachie peels off my skin when it dries, which is weird :P But at least I got my base for my first project started, which is good :P
That means less legacy was done then I wanted though, lol. But it's my mom's main birthday gift (it's going a real 3-d family tree), and her birthday is on the 24th, YIKES :D

Yeah... but I need a new computer first. :D Money is tight, so that most likely won't be happening.

Oh I definitely will, although probably less frequently as I'll get a little sad that the Dennis's won't be continuing for the time being.

My laptop is only about a year old and I got it for school mostly, so I'll probably be keeping it and then saving up for a new desktop... which will be a while since I'm currently unemployed and going to school. But hey, I'll still get to read everyone else's stuff. :D *attempting to be optimistic*

No! *cries* I love the Dennis family! I'm so sorry you can't play the Sims anymore. That's just horrible!!

I hope you stick around anyway, even if you can't update. It seems like we've lost a lot of people recently (to school, I'm guessing) and I'll be so sad if you leave too. I mean, I'll understand if you don't want to, but I'm selfishly hoping you do.

And I am going to pray to the gods of the computer world to that your game miraculously fixes itself. Or that you win the lottery and buy yourself a shiny new computer. Or both. Either way, I'm crossing my fingers.

Definitely sucks that the Dennis family is on hiatus, Giga.

Just a quick run down on my mythology planning. I've got 82 sims that need creating, I think it's split down the middle between Norse and Greek. The ages and genders aren't so even. Luckily I have a pool of sims to wade through from all you guys. Makes a good genetic mix and also means I only have to create half as many sims... Now all I need is a computer.

Buckley
8th Sep 2011, 2:36 PM
That sounds awesome teal. I'm excited to see your creations. Have you decided which Gods and heroes you will be creating? And do you know which world you are going to use?

Are you going to blog your legacy in the mythology town? If you do, I hope you showcase some of your town's families. I don't know if you've read calisims' new legacy, but she created a page devoted to her town's founding families. It was really neat to see the whole neighborhood, and it might be a good way for you to show off some of your favorite characters. Well, it's just an idea.

Hah, I hope you get that computer soon. I want to see it!

teal_moonshine
8th Sep 2011, 2:48 PM
I can list all the families if you want? And yeah I'll probably steal calisims' idea just so people can have a squiz at them all. Probably do an in game and an adult screenshot so if anyone wants one they at least know what they'll be getting. But I don't know which world I'll use. I'm open to suggestions obviously, I'd just want a functional, unpopulated world. I'm not the town planning type.

And yes, I'll probably be blogging my legacy, won't be any of the Gods, I love my little Doe family too much.

Giga, sometimes my computer will say my drivers are up to date when they aren't. Have you tried going to the manufacturers website to see their latest drivers? That happened to my game once... I updated my drivers and checked my CC files and was good to go. I hope you figure it out :(

I'm so excited for your mythology families, Teal! : D I can't wait to see all of them, and how you handled all that darn incest. (Also holy crap, 82? You crazy, girl)

I'll be moving onto gen 8 by Sunday I'm thinking, and once Gen nine is in play I'll start organizing Neverglade to make it playable. Maybe even act out ch. 1 to make sure everything is playable and good. I don't know what I'm more excited for. Completing my first full legacy (And saying goodbye to the Starrs) or starting up Neverglade...

I probably won't play very much in the near future, I don't have Generations yet, but I'm about to buy it soon, and I want some things from that game for my kids.

Btw, what's SP? Is it a mod or what is it?

I kinda side stepped the whole incest thing... Generally, I just ignored it (Cronus and Rhea, first generation Titans were parents to Zeus, Hades, Poseidon, Hera, Hestia and Demeter... Oh and were brother and sister) by making one of them unrelated, but in later generations some cases the outcome from the incest is kinda important (Zeus and Hera, Zeus and Demeter) so I'll have pretty much carbon copies of Zeus and Hera to have the same gene pool without the messy incest business that goes along with it...

And yes, 82, but I've reasoned myself into believing it's not so bad. Once you have the first generation, it's just a lot of playing with genetics and then tweaking a little...

... I'll take your word for it.

SP - Story Progression. Generally though we're referring to Twallan's story progression.

Generations is a great ep for kids.
SP stands for story progression. Most of us are using Twallan's SP mod that vastly improves the EA version.

I'm going to check that later today. Apparently Dell's lie... a lot... when it comes to updated drivers. I'm holding out hope that it works!

No! *cries* I love the Dennis family! I'm so sorry you can't play the Sims anymore. That's just horrible!!

I hope you stick around anyway, even if you can't update. It seems like we've lost a lot of people recently (to school, I'm guessing) and I'll be so sad if you leave too. I mean, I'll understand if you don't want to, but I'm selfishly hoping you do.

And I am going to pray to the gods of the computer world to that your game miraculously fixes itself. Or that you win the lottery and buy yourself a shiny new computer. Or both. Either way, I'm crossing my fingers.

Haha... I'll still be here. I just got some new advice about possible fixes, so I haven't completely lost hope yet. Keep praying though, just in case. :jest:

Hopefully you'll be able to get the game working on your computer soon, mine's technically below specs but I can't afford a new one (I'm trying to upgrade it gradually instead)

I have chapter seven now up:- http://clemetislegacy.blogspot.com/2011/09/chapter-seven.html

I can never figure out my specs, but without too much CC and medium/low graphics (except for sim detail), I'm fine :D
STILL working on update, I just can't focus today. I keep getting distracted :P
You guys won't lose me to school, as my school runs from 8:30-12:30, and I only have to be there for an hour and a half XD I usually stay for 3 hours, unless I have nothing to do. It's an adult high school, so the hours are super flexible :D And I don't need to do homework either, as I have 2 and 1/2 courses that I need to do for this whole year to graduate, so no point in trying to speed through them too much. And really, I don't need the 2 courses if I didn't want to go into a business program. I already have all but one elective course to finish.

Post #5000? We rock. Seriously.

I was trying to figure out my next plot twist and just so you all know, Lukas' future mates will be quite interesting... if it all works out.*evil laugh*

Agreed Cyykosis, our board rocks!

I'm thinking of plots too, I'm trying to make sure Isadora gets included too.
Oh, btw, the gen 2 teenage years will be longer then the other ones, as the plotlines and the relationships need to blossom. Plus Tyson's clone will have to fit in this :) And yes, I remade her in CAS using a clone of Tyson, I think she (the original one) was the cause of corrupting most of my files.

Does anybody have tips to make Tylar (the clone) more interesting as a child? I have a plot set up for the teenage years, but I want to do something to make the 8 days she is a child a bit more interesting. And since she's younger then Irish, she's allowed to stay in the house even when Irish is YA as long as she isn't? I don't have the swings and see-saw anymore, and interaction between the family and her will be strained until she gets settled in (aka teenager).
