I'm so nervous about this, and I have no idea why. Here is my around town page for those of you who are interested. Please, be kind. :)

Around Town: The Families of Charlton
http://themckinleychronicles.blogspot.com/p/around-town-families-of-charlton.html

Also, Red- Just a heads up, I didn’t have room for Faith in my founding families, but I will definitely use her sometime later on. She’s so purdy. :)

And Kayla- I tried to install Jordan, but when I ran her through custard it said the file was corrupt. :( Maybe I can use on of your characters later on though.

I already commented but I just wanted to say here as well, wonderful job done so far. I think that each character's backstory is so well thought out and organized. I can't wait to see everyone's interactions and lives go about and see what comes of each story. And I <3 the Princess Bride too so the reference to it is great!

Dawwwwwwh. That picture makes me feel so guilty. xD

And they look oddly great without the porcelain skintone. *considers*

More importantly, I'm probably going to be offline for a few days to a week...I currently have two very ill and/or dying family members. It won't be a fun week.

I don't know how long it will be for or when I will com back. But for now, I have had enough crap from these sims.

And I am going to start drawing my own comic YAY.

Kayla" *cries* But I will miss you so much!! Though I don't blame you for giving up. You have had a hard time with your Sims. I hope they will miraculously work again because I miss your story.

Zokugai: I'm sorry to here that. I will definitely keep your family in my thoughts. Hopefully everything will work out.

Zoku I'm so sorry about your family. All I can say is to be strong, and we're here if you need us. Unlike some people my PM box always has room if you need to just rant to someone.

Um... so my gam has still been acting up a bit so I couldn't get the last chapter of the Sabos done for tonight. But I did manage to organize my Sari Legacy founding families into a more or less final draft.

(Yes... Sari... because my random legacies must start with an "S". It's a theme now.)

For the founding families: (Alphabetically)


Avendale:
- Yalena Avendale (YA)
- Xander Avendale (YA)
- Ansley Avendale (YA)
- Zane Avendale (YA)
Basically they're just going to be siblings all living together as singles. Contemplating a plot line for Xander since I like his hair... but it depends. If he's a sweetheart than I won't go through with it. (Or will I? *Evil grin*)

Clemetis:
- Joanna Clemetis (A)
- Joshua Clemetis (To)
Joanna is the head chef at the Bistro and has a tough time balancing her demanding job with an even more demanding toddler. But she loves her little Joshua and doesn't regret having to raise him all on her own. She's a great mother and he wants for nothing in their large victorian style home.

Evans:
- Harris Evans (YA)
- Gwendolyn Evans (YA)
- Elizabeth (C)
- Cristian (C)
I almost dropped this family when I read Buckley's Around Town page but screw it Harris just BREATHES cheating evil politician so I kept the family as is! Gwendolyn is a naturally born child (Of Glimmer Sabo and Angelo Dennis) from my Evans Legacy... which I will update. One day. Basically Harris is the mayor, Gwen is his young wife and they have absolutely perfect twins (Who are both spoiled brats). However Gwen is dull and boring, and Harris always has his eye open for beautiful women, especially women who are new in town and don't yet know the rumours that surround him.

Fierce:
- Aviva Fierce (YA)
- Sebastian Fierce (YA)
Spoilers! Aviva and Sebastian are in town! Mostly because I went through so much trouble to grab him to be Aviva's husband and i had to ditch the whole teen lusting on an older man subplot with the move to Starlight Shores and then I couldn't even get them to behave and visit Aurora at home. So here they are.

Harris:
- Ellis Harris (A)
- Logan Harris (A)
- Darren Harris (C)
LOGAN WAS HOT AND ELLIS DESERVES A HAPPY ENDING. So they're married. And they have a son. Deal with it, Giga. (Please?)

Hemlock:
- Morgan Hemlock (A)
Strong, beautiful, dangerous. She's a big time reporter with her own TV show, the leader of the local paparazzi and the only woman who can make Harris Evans piss himself in fear. Everyone knows she holds all the real power in this town. Everyone hates her, but if you play your cards right she could be a great ally. And if you cross her... well, you'd best leave town immediately.

Jacobs:
- Azure Jacobs (YA)
- Snowflake Jones (YA)
Snowflake's been a rockstar since she was a child, born a musician she's been on the verge of becoming a trainwreck her whole life. When her parents bought her a mansion on Morikipo it was assumed they just wanted to get rid of her. Instead - in a twist worthy of the big screen - Snowflake met the local police chief at a bar, they went on a few dates, and months later married in an overly exposed and expensive wedding. Its been a while and so far they seem truly in love. What a surprise. Sometimes even celebrities can get a happy ending. Now the real question is when will Snowflake finally accept her widening belly and looming motherhood? Azure is a clone of Aquarius Oceans and Snowflake is a clone of Yuki Sabo. I had a bit too much fun with their story.

McKinley:
- Elijah McKinley (A)
- Scarlett McKinley (A)
- Nathaniel McKinley (T)
- Faye McKinley (C)
- Anastasia McKinley (To)
The McKinleys are just a large (and still growing) family of five who moved to the island after Elijah received a job offer from the local sports team. Scarlett got a job as a teacher and hopefully their children will grow into level headed adults with no dreams of becoming over the top celebrities.

Smith:
- Naveen Smith (YA)
- Jane Doe (?)
Naveen isn't your typical petty criminal. In fact he's quite a gifted conman with a fascinating past full of palaces, assassinations, and a hasty name change in his teenage years. He shares a home with another criminal who goes only by the name Jane Doe. The cops would love to get their hands on both of them but the duo is untouchable. Naveen because of his diplomatic immunity, Jane because... well... no one actually knows if she even exists. No photos have ever been taken of her. Only Naveen knows her identity, and he's not telling.

Cece, I feel the urge to comment on each and every family (really, I do), but I'll refrain and only point out the highlights. ;)


Contemplating a plot line for Xander since I like his hair...
ROFL! That line has Cece written all over it. :rofl:

[spoiler]Joanna is the head chef at the Bistro and has a tough time balancing her demanding job with an even more demanding toddler. But she loves her little Joshua and doesn't regret having to raise him all on her own. She's a great mother and he wants for nothing in their large victorian style home.

D'awww. This one made me smile.

Gwendolyn is a naturally born child (Of Glimmer Sabo and Angelo Dennis) from my Evans Legacy... which I will update. One day.

However Gwen is dull and boring, and Harris always has his eye open for beautiful women, especially women who are new in town and don't yet know the rumours that surround him.
Hah, I almost made Harris a nice guy, but then I figured that since he ended up being nice in Melissa's legacy that I would change it up and make him truly despicable. Lol, great minds...

The McKinleys are just a large (and still growing) family of five who moved to the island after Elijah received a job offer from the local sports team. Scarlett got a job as a teacher and hopefully their children will grow into level headed adults with no dreams of becoming over the top celebrities.
Uh, you don't have to use them if you don't want to. I mean, I know they're not the prettiest bunch of Simmies, and my feelings won't be hurt or anything. Their story is pretty old now, and I don't want you to feel obligated... If you'd rather, you can have my current founder and other person who shall go unnamed for now (no spoilers yet!). Just PM me if you want them. :)

Hi everybody! So, I've been lurking around for awhile, and decided to start my own random legacy. I'm not sure if I'll blog it, but I have a question.
I rolled Step Children for my first generation, and is it okay to create my founder with her boyfriend and his daughter in her household, or do they need to be in separate households at first? Or am I even allowed to create her future husband and step daughter in the first place? Just making sure I don't accidentally break any rules! :)

Buckley
26th Mar 2012, 10:51 PM
Hi CiscoB. :) Welcome to the challenge! I'm not entirely sure about your question, but my inclination would be that you need to create your founder separately from her future boyfriend and his child. I mean, you are welcome to create the boyfriend and stepdaughter yourself in CAS, just they can't start out living together.

P.S. Someone jump in here and correct me if I'm wrong.

Edit: Actually, I guess they could be made together in CAS, but I'm pretty sure that you'd have to make your founder and her boyfriend be housemates at first, so that the child doesn't link up as your founder's daughter. Although, now that I think about it, I don't think it works that way. Basically, as long as the child is only related to the boyfriend on the family tree, I don't *think* there would be an issue with creating them together in one household. :)

...Confused yet? ;) (I am! Lol.)

CyyKosis
26th Mar 2012, 10:57 PM
I believe Colleen is right. I'm not sure about creating them together in the same household though, but since you can for having a couple or 'help' then I would think it would be allowed.

CiscoB
26th Mar 2012, 11:21 PM

And just to confirm, I think it's fine to create the step family in CAS for the founding family.

So I finally sat down and managed to get some of these families from paper to sims themselves.

A few that I HAD to take pictures of:

(Spoilers have photos and comments)

Raydenne Amaral:
WHY IS SHE SO CUTE? She did that as I was trying to get a picture of her and Ary for the founding families page. This is now her official photo. And I love her hair.

http://i1083.photobucket.com/albums/j386/Rey4rey4/Screenshot-798.jpg

Nathaniel McKinley:
Colleen, I don't know why you think I WOULDN'T want these guys. I mean... just look at him! I love him <3. I may end up setting him up with one of the Avendale sisters because, really, I want those genes to continue.

http://i1083.photobucket.com/albums/j386/Rey4rey4/Screenshot-799.jpg

Naveen Smith:
He's a sexy one. Also: Does anyone know how the heck I can get rid of that medal? I can't find it in accessories. O_o

http://i1083.photobucket.com/albums/j386/Rey4rey4/Screenshot-800.jpg

Harris Evans the incredibly amazing woo-hoo god <3:
I... I... I can't even... I thought sims were supposed to be LESS sexy in CAS O_O. Wtf? Everytime I see him I get tingles and my face gets all flushed.

http://i1083.photobucket.com/albums/j386/Rey4rey4/Screenshot-802.jpg

Elizabeth Evans: (Harris' little princess)
Finally! A chance to use that outfit! And it just SUITS her! xD Harris makes beautiful children.

I think the medal is in their inventory, so maybe it just needs to be taken out? Not 100% on that though...

CyyKosis

Ray! Yaaaay :)

Try doing the outfit cheat (can't think of it off the top of my head). It might show up in CAS then... not sure though.

ReyaD
27th Mar 2012, 2:52 AM
Hmm... there's a chance the medal was in his inventory since he's cloned from Nadira. (Same nose!) I'll try that out once he's moved into the town. Thanks for the suggestions!

So.... I put Jordan through on my Custard..... and...... nothing is corrupted on mine.... >.<

Buckley
28th Mar 2012, 1:22 AM
Hmm... I'll try downloading her again. I really would love to have her in my hood. :)

Also, I'm annoyed. It's taking forever to tune twallan's dresser mod the way I want, and I really don't want to start on my legacy until I finish with it. Has anybody here messed with his invalid parts tuning file? If so, do you have any tips or tricks for me? I'm afraid I'm doing it wrong cause it's taking hours!

Edit: I re-downloaded Jordan and ran her through custard again, but it still says she's corrupt. "Contains another DBPF," which I *believe* means she's packaged with another package inside her package. (Lots of packages, lol.) I'm not really sure what would happen if I installed her (or if it's totally safe), but I just get nervous about that sort of thing. If you wanted, you could upload the .sim file and I could install her that way. Not that you have to, of course, but it would be an alternate way of uploading if you felt like going to the trouble. As I mentioned, I'd love to have some Malkier babies running around. ;)

28th Mar 2012, 1:36 AM
Charlton Island, if you don't mind downloading some extra CC. It's beautiful and amazingly well done (and also where I'm playing my legacy right now ;)). It does have a few issues that need to be addressed before you can play there, but nothing too major. It's quite small with very few houses, and it was built before pets. I really love it so far. :)

Let me Know how you get on yeah.

Here is her hair. http://anubis360.blogspot.co.nz/2011/07/raonjena-female-hair-010-fixed-pookletd.html But I got heaven to test the original file and all it was is that I had cc files added which was clothes and hair and probably make up too. But it should be all good to go now.

Ugh, I'm so mad I think I'm going to throw my computer out a second story window! It's Wednesday of week one in my legacy, and my save has already gone wacky/gotten corrupted. Every Sim in town had to be "recovered" by twallan's error trap, and my main character's entire genetics were "re-rolled". Meaning her face has somehow turned into EA vanilla pudding. I'm hoping it can be salvaged, but if not I quit. This is just ridiculous!

Thank you so much! :beer: I'll stop by here whenever I have a new update. :) I've been lurking on everyone else's RLCs, haha.

Emma: Thank you! I'm a huge fan of all things supernatural so I couldn't help but write about it. I'm glad you like it anyways. =D

Colleen: I'm so sorry about all your problems. I have no idea what to tell you because I would probably make it worse I'm sure. I hope you get everything figured out because I was really looking forward to your new legacy.

Cece: I'm so excited....and I just can't hide it. ^_^

Chapter Fifteen: Still Growing (http://keattslegacy.blogspot.com/2012/03/chapter-fifteen-still-growing.html) is up! Still dragging out Gen 1, but it's getting closer!

*hugs* for Colleen, I really hope you can fix your issues. I do not envy you. :(

I really love what everyone's doing with the founding families. Part of me wants to do something similar when I move the Keatts to their new neighborhood, but there's another Sims project I've been wanting to start on for awhile, so I don't think I'll have the time to put that kind of extra work into my legacy.

Thanks for the support guys. :) I've been messing with it for hours now, and I *think* I've got it working again. I tried my alternate saves (all four of them), and two of them were corrupted. However after testing the two un-corrupted saves, they became messed up whenever I reached a certain point in the game. I think my problem is similar to the missing UI and invisible Sims issue (the error that Klev was having), but I'm not sure. Anyway, to make a long story short, I fiddled with things for a while and then play tested an old backup for about 2 Sim weeks with new user files in place, and it did not become corrupted. Hopefully, that means it's fixed now. *crosses fingers* Either way, I'm going forward with my legacy but mentally preparing for the worst- Losing my save and having to hastily uproot the family to a different world.

Ugh. Anyway, I can't sleep so I'm off to read people's stories. I played eenie meenie miney moe with the updates on this page, and Jess won. You're first! ;)

Yay for having it back working colleen :D I'm glad you are going through with it! For me it was solved with the back up files EA made. My own back-ups were messed up as well (I was gonna use another word...but erased it again, but it started with an S and ended with ed). I hope your problem is not coming back!

Buckley
29th Mar 2012, 12:17 PM
Started with an "s" and ended with an "ed"? Did you mean screwed up? ;) Lol, that's not a bad word... (at least not in my vocabulary, lol.) Or are you talking about some other word that my sleep deprived brain cannot come up with at 6 o'clock in the morning? Haha.

And thanks for the well wishes! I appreciate it Klev. :)

Love the first chapter Reya - and the heir polls idea! I tend to mico manage my sims every action and detail. I think when I start my legacy im going to have to try and be a bit more laid back and let them do things on their own accord!

Im just setting up my legacy now as im starting to get a bit bored with my other challenge. I've chosen Dragon Falls for my world (I hope no one here has had any problems with that world) and im just creating some sims for around town before I get started properly.

Colleen: Thank you so much! Those would be so perfect for crime scenes and I would have LOVED the camera poses when I did the crime scene was Amelia, Bianca and Romeo. Why can't I find this stuff when I need it? Oh well, maybe I'll roll Law Enforcement again. Plus that Tipsy OMSP would be VERY handle in a future scene I have planned. =D

On the other hand, if you need to make an email you think people actually might want to break into, you can use that connection to command it to text message a 6 digit code to your phone whenever you log in, so that even if they have your password, no one can log into your account without physical possession of your phone.

I have my protesting email set up like that, because people have tried to break into it like three times so far.

I've got my first chapter done. (Thanks for the quick response Melissa! :))

I want to warn you guys: There is a bit of a controversial topic mentioned in the chapter. Read the spoiler if you are prone to get upset about that sort of thing.
There are a couple references to abortion. I discuss my thoughts behind writing about it in the challenge notes section at the end of the chapter, but if you're going to get mad at me then please don't read my legacy. I will tell you all that I am NOT going to be pushing any political viewpoints in my blog. I'm much more interested in the character's reactions and responses to certain topics/events than I am in forcing anyone to listen to my personal opinions on those topics/events. Anyway, enough rambling.

Okay, I have a question, is there any way to turn a toddler back into a baby with MC or any other mod? I might have played my game a little too far and now I need more photos for my next chapter but the baby already aged up. I THOUGHT I saved as right as the baby was born, just in case I didn't get enough shots and played through a little more. But when I clicked on the save as game I did where the kid was still a baby, it brought up my current save. Does that make sense? I think I confused myself a bit.

If you just need a few photos, use MC to create an Instant Baby. Hide the toddler somewhere and take your pics, and then don't save.

You could just do an Instant Baby on some townie and temporarily steal their kid for the photos. It's not a felony if it's in the Sims! ;)

The best thing about nieces and nephews (I got 3 all from 1 sister and she's 24) is that you get to wind them up and then pass them back. I also taught my eldest nephew how to pick his nose and then link it to the question of 'where's your nose' :)

I've been prepping for a trip out of state that starts tomorrow...so either I'll disappear for a week or I'll have time to do like three updates, depending on how it goes. Promise to write at least one on the plane.

Cece: "And the friggin singer career pays NOTHING. I'm dyyyying. "

It turns around, promise. You wind up going from absolutely no money whatsoever to making ten grand a night in, like, one promotion. Top level performer makes 18,000 each from the stadium and theater gig, and something like 11k from private venue, so if you get the regular gig or whatever they call it when you arrange to have the same gig on that night every week, it becomes literally the most money you can possibly make in The Sims 3 without resorting to the guitarist perform exploit (which is cheating anyway :P ).

But hey, welcome back to the world of first-gen legacy households! Enjoy your bare walls and bathtub on the front lawn, while you're at it. ;D

Aww, Kayla! :( That sucks! I'm sorry that happened.

I have a question about the challenge. My founder is employed in the film career, which means playing through the crappy celebrity system. She recently received an opportunity to earn some celebrity points by recording a commercial or whatever it was, but they paid her like $10K to do it. Am I allowed to keep it? She has the opportunist LTR which is why it's so much, but I kind of feel like I'm cheating.

Also, since I'm already posting, I'm curious what you guys thinks about using poses to tell your story. Originally, I had only planned to use them in my around town page, but now I'm addicted! They make illustrating certain scenes and emotions so much easier. But is there a point when it become less about the legacy and more about staging a scene? I just don't want to overuse them and get that fake feeling, you know? What do y'all think? Do you like or dislike seeing poses in people's blogs? Or do you even care? Lol.

I don't see why you shouldn't keep it, it was a random opportunity and we're allowed to do those & keep the reward :)

I'm not bothered either way, even without using poses sometimes the only way to tell the story is to stage a scene anyway.

I think you're allowed to keep the 10k. Not only did it come from an opportunity, it came from a job-related one. But if you feel uncomfortable with it, just master-controller the funds away or whatever. Personally I never do anything with celebrities, even when I had a sim in the film career, so I don't know how crazy those opportunities are.

Klevkin
4th Apr 2012, 1:36 PM
hey all...*drags feet into this topic*

here's me (again).......

so I'm gonna go do something really weird...i'm at least going to put my crist legacy at hold for a while...I have enough pics for at least another chapter, might write it, might not. But the thing is, my game is messing up again....it's crashing to desktop, it's giving me error 12's....and most annoyingly...it's giving me nothing but boy heirs! And it's driving me nuts.

So I'm starting over, with a sim I created myself, in a small world. With a new roll (I feel like i've been rerolling to much this last generation anyways to get stuff going again, feels like cheating, and i'm not a very good cheater...)
I'm planning on using Redwood Harbor from Mysimrealty.com. And I'm going to use the save file as well (once I can get my internet connection to speed up the download...rediculous 30 minutes for 15mb...) cause I simply do not have the energy to create founding families to fill a town myself.
It's starting to feel like a hype atm right?? Starting over :)

Next point on my apoligy list, I do not have a lot of energy at the time. Frustrating thing is, it seems likely I will never have a lot of energy, sure I will have some for small periods of time, but mostly I will be tired, I have been since puberty, but normally i'd just pretend I wasn't cause I felt like I was not allowed to. For reasons that I am not going to say in public (people are allowed to ask me in PM :) if you really want to know, it's not that private, I just don't want it out there for everyone to read) I have finally learned to accept this, and it will also mean that I will not be playing and posting as much as I did in the previous months.
BUT! I do miss you lot in my days of absence, so I will keep playing, and posting, just not as regular as I was doing. Though I feel like i'm missing out on stuff now, I do feel better when I take my time to do stuff. And I think I will feel less guilty for not showing up now that I have said it out loud :)

I don't think anyone of you cares a lot about what I said above (well other then perhaps compasion :lol:) but I just needed it off my chest, things can go on in my mind forever until they become this very big big big mountain that I can't handle anymore ;) so just pretend you never read it ;) and just know I will come by at least once a week :P

then as a final say:

Becky! I LOVED your joke :D I laughed so hard :D it was just what I needed :D

calisims
4th Apr 2012, 2:20 PM
Yeah, you can keep any opportunity money. The celebrity opps can be very lucrative, but so can the painting and sculpting ones. I've gotten like 50k from some painting opps, and that's totally allowed even if you aren't a career artist.

@Cece, I look at that face now and all I see is Lecocq, lol. I used Harris as a base for Rainier.

@Klev, you don't need to apologize. It will be great to have you around whenever you can make it, but don't feel like you have to stress yourself over it. I hope your new legacy goes well and your game stops messing up.

I feel your pain, Kayla. My game has been f-d since last night. I can open the game fine, but after about an in-game hour it freezes up on me. I notice it happened around 10 am and that a lot of kids were late for school so I re-did the school lot layout to eliminate traffic issues, but the evil eternal hang of doom continues.

I have tried restarting the game, restarting the computer, MC's reset everything, and even switching households! Nothing! Any ideas? I know last time I had this I switched to the Fierce family (Aviva and Sebastian) and Aviva was having her baby. The labour went fine and the lag was gone. Is there a possibility that sims in labour are causing the hanging? I think Gwen's baby is due right about where I am in game right now.

CyyKosis
5th Apr 2012, 9:10 AM

So my game keeps freezing moments after I start the game. I've tried everything including reset everything but the freezing always returns before I can do anything. I tried using Twallan's porter mod to package everything up into a new version of the town but then my game crashed to desktop right in the middle of it.

Any suggestions? I'm freaking out just a little.

calisims
6th Apr 2012, 8:22 PM
That sucks, Cece.
As a last ditch effort. You could bin your families individually, move them to a new town and use MC to restore the relationships.
Have you tried just playing in other towns to see if the freezing problem is just your legacy hood? If you have some bad CC or something, moving won't help.

ReyaD
6th Apr 2012, 8:24 PM

Well I opened up an empty build world and managed to play for two in game weeks just fine as well as build a house (a shack) from scratch and multiple edits to it without any crashing or hanging.

Going to remove all my mods (except for Porter) and see if that stops the crash to desktop during processing glitch. If not I'll have to process each household individually and then edit their relationships in later. Which actually isn't SO bad with a total population of 37.

Oh and for anyone who is curious, this is what Alex and Mel's lovechild would look like:

Its a holiday here too, Kayla. My dad doesn't like us eating meat on Good Friday so my sisters snuck out to the mall for our first burger in years. Well, they had burgers. I had chicken. Beef makes me sick.

We did have fish for dinner though. And it was delicious <3.

So Portering FINALLY worked, and they unpacked into a new Morikipo just fine but then froze after the first save, so I'm going to test Hammond Island next to see if THAT'll work (And get me those last f-ing photos for the chapter I need before a certain somebody kills me). I've got to assume that its Morikipo itself that is borked as the town has given me issues before and the creator herself admitted the town is VERY large and will likely have issues.

TLDR: So basically I'm planning to move everyone to a new, similar, island type town. If anyone has any suggestions I'd love to hear them. My only criteria is tropical-esque and small or medium world size at largest.

I'm redoing my legacy because this time the sims will be named after The Hunger Games, Twilight, and The Mysterious Benedict Society, and Alex Rider characters....and characters from other books if I need to. This legacy is the Legend Legacy. The founder is Matthew Legend and he's a Pleasure sim.
A Generation
Matthew and his new wife Haley have given birth to baby Alistair! Alistair is a Twilight character and he's Carlisle's old friend. He's very mysterious and his only appearance in the books is in Breaking Dawn when the Cullens call him to come convince the Volturi that Renesmee isn't an immortal child. He stays locked away in the attic most of the time and little is known about him. Baby Alistair has his mommy's light skin tone and brown eyes and his daddy's brown hair. Haley is preggy with their second child and Alistair is now a toddler. His personality is 10/4/7/1/6. Haley has given birth to her second son Aro! Aro is also a Twilight character and is an evil Volturi king. His character is quite strange....and not in a good way. He also has a creepy stare and smile. Aro has brown eyes and pale skin like mommy and brown hair like daddy. I will dye the brown hair black when he's a toddler...but shhh don't tell him!

SO. Tanisha was playing sims this morning. The only CC she has in her game is twallands mod. There was no crashing, no code 12.... Obviosly I need to get rid of everything >.< But I dont wannaaaa

My hypothesis is Sims 3 only likes little kids. Cause my sister's game works at lightning fast speeds and her computer SUCKS.

I'm not happy with how this chapter came out. At all. But I can't post my next update until this one is up, so here it is. Sorry for how sucky it is, but on a positive note (or what I hope is a positive note) there is a sex scene! Poorly written and very awkward, but there it is! Lol. :)

Haha, well I'd like to not consider myself a little kid (though I'm not quite an adult) and my game doesn't seem to have any problems unless my laptop gets too warm. That being said, I don't have any CC other than stuff I got from the exchange, so maybe that has something to do with it?

Also, I made my banner for my legacy, so if you guys don't mind stopping by even to just let me know how the banner is, it would be great!

*sighs* Why can't I get motivated? I want to continue my legacy, but I just can't blog it :(

Emma, why don't you do a time skip? (A McKinley, lol. ;)) Like, don't try to blog the stuff you've already done, but just pick up from where you are in game? You can always do a short paragraph or two explaining what we missed. Just a thought.

Edit: Or you could just play a legacy without blogging it? Just showing us pictures of heirs and stuff? That might work too. :)

Hm...I wonder if a time skip could work. Maybe not where I am, but past some of the boring stuff. But I have plot stuff...Hm.
I love writing, it's just hard to get started again. I think once I start, I'll be good?

Hello everyone (that still remember me, and the new faces too!).

I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things with my legacy and should have a chapter up later this week. I got caught up in school (my dissertation, to be exact) and haven't had much time to play. And ME3 had something to do with it too, but yeah...

Anyway, I can't wait to read everyone's updates and catch up! I didn't realize how far behind I had gotten (lookin' at you Cece and Colleen and Klev and Melissa... and oh gawd!). D: How long has it been?!!!!

Giga!!! <3

Welcome back! I'm so happy you haven't abandoned your legacy! I was just talking about you with Cece yesterday, wondering where you'd gone to. Your dissertation? Yikes! I'm glad you're all caught up with it though. :)

Btw, my legacy isn't that bad. I just started a new one, so only four chapters so far. Also, I used Dasia as one of my townie Sims. I hope you don't mind... :)

Well, Hello everyone that remembers me (and I'm guessing that aren't too many) :P
To make it short: Before, I didn't have much time to play the sims 3. Now I got a new computer (A really good one) and a lot of time over, so I'm planning to start from scratch, and pretend that my old, crappy, 4-chapter-legacies never happend.

Giga! Hey we missed you! I'm also now officially going to be more active since I beat ME:3 as of... less than a minute ago. Don't even get me started on how disappointed I am in it... oh well, at least I still have my sims :)

Buckley

Lol Maddie. I'm glad you're going to be around more too. :)

Welcome back, bones. I remember you (of course! :)), and I'm looking forward to your new legacy.

Guys, question.

Do those obnoxious "click to agree to continue to horrible things, we warned you!!!" orange buttons on blogger appear automatically via Internet police, or do you have to add it somewhere in settings?

I'm like, worried my blog has one. o.o

Not so much worried that it SHOULD, since I'd hope random people don't stumble across it.

Buckley
9th Apr 2012, 12:18 PM
On blogger in the settings tab (under the "other" heading), there is an area that asks if the blog is adult content. You change that to "yes" and the warning pops ups. :)

Edit: Whoops. I thought you wanted your blog to have it, lol. Yours is warning free atm, so you're all clear.

Giga! I'm glad you're back!
I still haven't quite finished my ME3 playthrough, because I'm too distracted by Sims, lol. But I've seen my husband's ending and...yeah, all that work for that? BioWare has made an announcement though, this summer they'll be releasing a free DLC to extend/clarify the ending more.

Anyway, looking forward to seeing you get back on your legacy! I'm glad you got through your dissertation.

Seems to be the nature of things, people come and go and come again. =) I know I do the same thing.

I've started working on my next update, but for some reason it's just not flowing well. I've been sick the last week and 1/2, which might have to do with the creative block.

Also, a friend got me Skyrim to play while I was stuck in bed over the weekend. And can I just say that it's a pretty awesome game? The world is stunningly beautiful and I'm actually having a lot of fun playing it! I don't normally go for the "fighting" games, but this one has a lot of puzzle aspects to it as well. I just got to the Throat of the World and I'm a little embarrassed to say that the scene there kind of brought tears to my eye. But that might have also been the sinus infection.

How do you know when a guy is perfect? When you call him and he says "Oh hey! Just give me one minute. I'm going to shut off Skyrim so we can talk without distractions." Yeah. My boyfriend is awesome. (Now if I could just afford him the same kindness when it comes to the Sims.... yeah, not happening. But don't tell him that.)

1.9 - Just a Whore http://sarisimsrandomlegacy.blogspot.ca/2012/04/19-just-whore.html?zx=d8a2a52995dea076

So. A WARNING FOR THIS CHAPTER. The majority of it is sweet, happy, a good chapter. Then you get to the end and you get to the part that actually requires a warning. It was hard for me to write that scene and I did try to leave as much as possible unsaid while still making it obvious whats going to happen.

Please accept this apology photo of Naveen playing with his adorable baby girl:

Colleen: Thanks! And I'm excited to see Dasia!!111! Also, I saw your PM and I'll be getting to it after class. ; )

Maddie and Melissa: Yeah.... 'dat ending. : / Why, why? Seriously. But I'll stop before I start ranting. And thanks for the welcome back!

Red: Skyrim is amazing! I still haven't finished because it's just too massive - but it's definitely worth it.

internet huggles right back at ya'!

I wasn't aware that you were having problems with the game (I haven't had a chance to sift through the thread yet), but I'm glad you're not experiencing any issues so far. I'm crossing my fingers that it works out!!

Everyone under the sun has been getting game problems. I only barely managed to keep my save game open long enough to salvage my first generation town to move them!

*Huggles* I really missed you.

D'awww. I missed you too (assuming that was aimed at me lol). I miss our PM chats - in fact, I have one that I'll shooting your way in a couple of days. ; )

I've been reading that quite a few people are having issues with the latest patch. Is that true? I've decided against buying SHT, so I haven't patched yet and if that's what is causing some of the issues, then I'll think I'll refrain for now.

I bought it and I don't really regret it... the clothing is right up my alley so <3. But yeah everything else can go die in a hole really. Especially Starlight Shores. What a waste.

And yes Giga, that hug was meant for you. I look forward to your PM!
