@Owly: I am pretty exhausted, but considering the nature of my business (concept art) and all the great people I got to work (and hang out) with, it was actually quite energizing And your motherly side is lovely, don't worry about it. 43°C sounds horrifying! I'm impressed you're still able to do anything! It was 29°C here today and I thought I was going to melt.

Another update: 4.24 Merry band of adventurers

Just a few more chapters to go before we finally say farewell to this generation. So there's some ageups in this chapter and a bit more focus on the youngest ones.

Sorry for off topic but I'm considering to buy the last 2 EPs I don't own (IP and ITF) because of the steam sale. Didn't plan to ever buy them, but oh well, I'm sorry wallet. One question about ITF though, will it annoy me if I don't want to play futuristic stuff all the time? As in, will there be people on hoverboards and plumbbots running around in town all the time or something like that? If I can simply avoid it when it doesn't fit into my current game like I can do with supernaturals I'd be fine with that
(sorry, I know nothing about these EPs)

All of the futuristic stuff is confined to another map, kind of like World Adventures, so people won't be zooming around on hoverboards unless you deliberately give them the skills that allow them to do so.

ITF will be annoying if you want NOTHING to do with it, though, since it glitches up random opportunities (you will almost never get one, or only get ones about time travel, ugh). Also the time traveler dude will spawn out of nowhere like the stupid college mascot freak.

Yay! Annie's back! I'm always in awe when I hear people with creative jobs like concept art. Way cooler than what I used to do!

I laughed at the Liebster Award outbreak. It's pretty cool finding out more about all the cool people that blog their stories!

Oy - it's hit just over 100 degrees farenheit here in Texas this past week - and we were without air conditioning! I'm lucky I'm not a puddle of goo right now!

I've got to get back to my updates. I'm stuck on my update. Hopefully I'll get it out today since I have the day to myself!

I know it's a bit of chapterspam, but this way I'll be able to start next generation next month: 4.25 No two sims are the same

There's romance in the air, stomachproblems, a baby with eyebrows and a creepy cop

I have an update!
2.11. Alpha

I also have a question. I just did some housekeeping on my blog, and I updated the summary page. It's starting to get LONG and with all the pictures it loads slowly. Would it be helpful to break up my summary page into different pages for different generations? I want to make the summaries accessible for those who are trying to catch up or who forget stuff (this page is 90% for me tbh) but I don't want to crash people's browsers. Also, I'm going to upload a batch of sims soon (including Lark and Nikolas). Are there any sims that people *want*? Again, I upload them 90% for myself just in case my game dies and I have to start over. XD

@Owly don't worry about sounding too "motherly." I thought you just sounded really nice. Also, I think having a separate page for each summary is a good idea if they are especially long.

@MommyIce that sounds terrible with no air conditioning! Mine was broken in May, but luckily it was fixed before summer really started.

I just posted the first chapter of my seventh gen: 7.1 "Not Again"

I have a new chapter I meant to get out about two months ago >_> Gen 7 Ch 5: Surprise Party

Sorry I'm slow at catching up with all your updates! I want to pace myself so I don't binge-read all of them at once and end up with nothing new left to read O_O

Yay, so many new posts to read!

I finally have another chapter up too: Goldbeard RLC Chapter 98: Trial and Error

It's not exactly crawling with gameplay, but I have a checklist of things that "should" happen before I allow the next generation to take over, and this was one of those things.

Well I'm new to the thread but I read the Archers of Barnacle Bay and some other blogs and darnit after a week of reading I wanted to play it too! I've been a bit of a lurker here lol because I fall head first into challenges I like so I try not to take on too many. Too late, I discovered there's a cheat to play pose animations in the game and before I knew it I was rolling for gen one and building a backstory. Found a great sim generator too for ideas about traits and favorites-
I like the style tab personally. (http://www.scenariogenerator.net/generators/the_sims_3)

Here's my blog (I'm new to blogging but still happy with how it came out)

Thank you very much!

@Marcy and @Mochajava. I randomized three of my sim traits and chose two that seemed like decent matches for the Jobs I rolled. It seems like it's working out pretty well that way. Don't think I could handle randomizing all of them, and I also hold an ill-conceived resentment towards the game for leaving out most traits at sim birth, so I'm leaving myself the option of changing one when they're an adult if it's something I feel they could develop or grow out of. (extreme example but if a loves the outdoors sims gets struck by lightening or almost drowns or whatever, maybe they wouldn't love it so much. Or an athletic sim depressed could become a couch potato- this is not something I've done in a challenge yet but I want the option if there's a scenario that would be enriched by it)

Also @Nocriel to followup about IP and ITF.. IP is incredibly beautiful but really hard to play if you don't change the neighborhood up. There are some homes that cause stuck sims (a houseboat door can't be opened because a sink was left in the way, that sort of thing). It's my favorite world but I never play it with a legacy for more than a generation, even after world fixes it's huge and the game has a lot to calculate. You can get versions of it here with varying levels of emptiness, that extra activities and ability to snorkel etc are all worth the price. ITF doesn't effect normal gameplay and the bots are great because you can add levels of ability or sentience. Also the indoor 'grass' rugs you can plant on are AMAZING and I use them everywhere. So glad you're trying them out, I think you'll like them!

And nice to meet you all too lol

7/8/17 EDIT: Here's the second update (almost done with the prologue! http://sparrowlegacychallenge.blogs...ngs-meghan.html Hidden Things part 2
I won't update again until after the weekend I don't think since I'm taking so long to do it and I have to study... a lot. SO I hope this is a good start.

7/9/17 EDIT: Dangit I lied I can't stop writing these people! End of Prologue is up now too: http://sparrowlegacychallenge.blogs...ing-future.html

Pictures are outtakes that didn't make it in the blog, but still they're so cute :3

Rant rant rant! I used to use photobucket for my legacy pics but it seems they have stopped allowing third party hosting. So I'm going to go back and fix about half my posts for my random legacy so any future readers can see the pictures. There's no point to this. I'm just really annoyed. And I wanted to rant. >:c

I have the pictures for the next update but I've been distracted by 1) the aforementioned picture debacle and 2) something I'm working on for mah tumblr. I'll try to update again by my blog's one year anniversary (July 19th).

Edit: It took me all morning but I fixed the pictures on my blog! Now I just need to do the same thing for my old legacy. ;_; Good thing I'm a digital packrat, I suppose.
