No offense to Starlight Shores, but I'm happy to have the legacy family back in Monte Vista.

Hi guys, I'm back home and excited to catch up on your legacies! So many chapters I need to read and comment on :O The past few days I've been playing quite a bit (finally messing around with ITF!), but I hope to get an update posted soon.

After being too busy with my work, I managed to put a chapter up. It's pretty short, but at least it's something

1.4 Wild Thought

Now to read some blogs.

Some questions came up as I was rolling for future generations. Regarding the Idle Career generation goal, would it apply only to the heir or to spouse(s) as well? (This roll is a second chance family structure.) I'm wondering about the spouses in particular, because they're both non-standard careers.

As an Equestrian the sim would only be allowed to gain two skill points in riding per week, no confusion there. The issue are the horses themselves: If a horse doesn't gallop around or practice jumping on a daily basis, their exercise need tanks pretty quickly. However, those activities make them gain racing and jumping skill, and it's likely that this might amount to more than 2 skill points per week. So the question is, should the skill gain cap apply to the horses as well? If so, do you guys know of another way to fill a horse's exercise need without gaining skill points?

The other career that has me stumped is the Day Care profession. What would an idle career look like? Ignoring the children as much as possible? That just seems cruel :/

And another question vaguely related to day care - do you guys know of any mods that make the store playpen less cheaty? The one that used to be on MTS is gone.

I haven't played with horses for a while, but if I recall they don't gain skill points too rapidly on their own, it may only be one or two a week when they 'gallop around', so I'd say have your jockey only learn at the ranch (I forget the name of that place), and have them bond with the horse through means that isn't riding? Or possibly don't even get them a horse/ let it be the neighbor's horse etc.

Day care I'd say have the worker watch tv most of the day, and just tend the kids when they cry (and maybe, bottles over high chair & blender, that sort of thing). That seems lazy enough. I've never played that or Idle Careers though.

About the playpen, the store object specifically says 'if the babysitter/ parents are lazy the kids can teach themselves', but here are some useless ones from TSR , and some useful ones from ATS3 .

Bread edges.... are the new white meat.

Thank you for the quick reply, Frogsnack. I'm actually playing with a horse at the moment (just not the equestrian career) and I can say that yes, they do learn the skills that quickly on their own, at least during the early levels. Keeping that below 2 per week should be possible, but the real question is if the horses' skills even need to be included in the sim's idle career roll or not.

I don't know if you mean something different by 'bonding' with the horse, but if it's relationship you're talking about, I don't think that restricting that was ever on the table. I don't believe that relationship with the animals has any bearing on the career level gain. The equestrian career involves breeding, training and selling horses as well as entering them in competitions, so I don't see why or how you would use a neighbor's pet. If you'd like to elaborate on that, I'd be very curious to know what you had in mind.

Input from people who have actually experimented with either the equestrian or day care careers would still be very much appreciated! Of course I can figure things out when the time comes to play that generation, but a common consensus over rules feels better than playing a guessing game.

The playpen question still stands too, since the TSR ones are just deco objects and the ATS3 ones reskins of the store object. The point is to remove the cheaty motive gain that the playpen provides, since the RLC rules mention mods that fix things like that.

Good to see you, Annie!

I have never played with horses, so, I dunno how to answer the Idle Careers thing. =/

If anything, I'll be the guinea pig to test out that particular roll and report back with any findings. That generation is still a ways off though!

Anyway, there's a new chapter up: Gen 7 Ch 13: Warmth

I think that with idle careers and equestrian, I'd just ignore it as far as the horse goes, and have the sim be "idle." Or have the horse level up just enough to fulfill their needs.

I have an update: Chapter 9.7 "Wedding Day Drama"

Ahhh! I wanna write so bad! It seems like it's been forever, but my job is so insane (I'm a Realtor and I love it but there are no off days), I've been catching up reading some series here and just stopping to say hi now- if I haven't commented on something I promise I will! (and let me know if any of ya'll need homes in Ohio lol) :P

I'm hoping to have an update this week, if I can catch up on all my phone calls/emails. =^_^=
