"Awesome" can mean anything you want it to mean. I take it mean "achieve something that's not so easy to achieve in the game". One time I rolled it and decided to create an unmelting ice sculpture garden. Another time I collected a bunch of spire cut gems.

I was planning on just jumping back in with my legacy. However, I am doing a time jump... Mostly cause my save is corrupt. >.> Annnnnd I need to organize my CC really badly. And compress files. Apparently my folder is 31GB. Somehow I'm about 99% sure that is wrong, considering it says I have over 600 folders in that folder, and I know for sure that I don't. xD

Thanks! I'm probably just going to use blogger's hosting service for the time being, since I've been burned already.

I think another simmer (futurecarrie, maybe) used the awesome roll to collect all the gnomes in the game. I'd like to roll the awesome roll at some point because it seems....awesome, I guess.

When I rolled awesome I created a clone of one of my legacy spouses with the science skill.

Yeah the examples of awesome being collections make a lot of sense as they're so difficult to obtain, but most of what my sims collect they won't be able to sell because of my rolls and it's gen 1, so I had this crazy idea to make a 'happening bunker' for Meghan who is insane, a genius, and a computer whiz. I can't make her an inventor because of the time involved i don't think (plus I gave her that custom hypochondriac trait where she thinks everything's going to kill her so I'm incredibly tempted to make her an underground safe space with every type of scientific and electron device imaginable in the game, where everything is upgraded to never need cleaning).

Another idea is that 'awesome' can spread to every generation and I'll have to bring in an occult sim each generation (not the freebies the ones you have to find like mummy, genie, ghost, mermaid). But since she's all about conspiracies I don't see her trusting anything non-human, although she's a supernatural fan and all...

So, bomb shelter of insane scienc-ery, would something like that work? I could always compound it by adding a requirement to fill the place with Tiberium or soul pieces or something. Thoughts? I don't want a normal collection, I want it to tie into her traits because she rolled a great set of them I think.

Yeah, I collected (most of) the gnomes. I think I was missing a few (and the showtime ones) but I figured "hey, y'all got a sh*t ton of gnomes, that's awesome enough". Alyssa had to do so much laundry to get that li'l bear gnome xD

I'll have an update one day, it's mostly because I'll have to build lots and make a lot of poses for next chapter which is really putting me off it, I'm a very lazy person xD

@FutureCarrie Yeah those gnomes creep me out a lot, you are a brave simmer. They ususally show up on my lots and I think 'hey look it's a thousand bucks'!
And dang it go pose your sexy sexy sims for us, it's the best soap opera ever! I reread your blog about three times last week, all the way back to Sam & June's early married days. Good stuff.

@heatherfeather19 Thanks by your and my consensus I'll probably do something like that! Uhh because creative licence or something and reasons, lol. The party in your update was hilarious. I'll be nice to the neighbors and assume they thought nobody really died and the evening was a staged event. You should have a murder mystery next time.

Hadn't played this is in a bit. Annika, my heir, is now a child.

She looks a lot like her dad, which I find a bit unfortunate. I don't think that bone structure looks great on a girl. Hopefully the puberty fairy is kind to her.

Just started playing this, I'm only on first gen. My rolls are: Single Parent, 2 children, Culinary career, and Runs In the family(I decided to not do the generational goal, I rather do this like a normal legacy..) even though I've only been playing this for a few days, I'm about half way done with generation 1. My founder is at level 9 in her career and both of her kids are children! I haven't given the kids the trait yet, but after they age up to teenagers, I will.

#15289 Old 15th Jul 2017 at 3:13 PM
Annika is now a teen! She looks better I think, though you can still DEFINITELY tell who her Dad is (the non child support paying jerk!)


Next gen's rolls: couple with five kids, she's going to be a lifeguard and her spouse an inventor/bot builder. Think I'm going to move her to another town once she becomes an adult.

Yeah... it was funny though. I loved how the situation was 'resolved' there.

@NutsandDolts & LoveViolet I just found out about the fridge a few days ago, I kind of want to roll that career now too. This challenge is going to make me play so many rabbithole jobs I never would. I just realized that I might actually play every part of the game this way. Normally I avoid the jobs like the plague and my sims run all over town causing whatever havoc I'm in the mood to muster through them. Half the time I take the school out too so I can play the kid's lives better.

New updates on them kids!

Arrivals http://sparrowlegacychallenge.blogs...7/arrivals.html
Academics http://sparrowlegacychallenge.blogs.../academics.html

I hope the pacing is okay so far. Also I know I'm playing the first gen early by having them be teens and they'll get some skills earlier than they should, but it's the only way I wanted to do it (and Meghan's role didn't make sense to me otherwise).

So, uhm, hi everybody? I kinda fell off the face of the earth for a (long) time, but I had a good reason (I hope XD). If anybody is really interested in that reason, I've left a post on my blog to explain my absence. I'm not entirely sure when the next Marquel chapter will be posted, but I haven't abandoned my simmies, so it'll come. In the meantime, I'll be catching up on all the legacies I've fallen behind on.

Everyone's blogs are awesome so far... I've not been able to read one completely from the beginning, but all the hard work you guys and gals put in is clear. I might be over commenting on them, so please don't feel like you all have to respond to my rantings on your pages. If I get inspired to say something, I blab a little.

New post (probably another tomorrow too). I've been posting a lot because I want to get started on the actual legacy beginning, but I have to let the story mature first.
Progress http://sparrowlegacychallenge.blogs...7/progress.html

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
EDIT: I have a question about unlisted career ideas (especially regarding store content). Is there any opinion on the following ideas? They'd be in the non-standard list, I'm thinking about adding them to my personal roll for jobs.

Non-Standard: Resort Management/ Investor (Island Paradise). Create and Manage resorts, must start by purchasing a vacant lot and get each resort up to a 4 start level before opening a new one, or some such rule.

Cannery: With Mods like this one and the store content canning station it's possible to sell rations and jam. The jam jars were set by EA to sell for 100 Simoleans each, with the overhaul mod it's possible to make jars of individual servings but that means that a full meal broken up could bring in 800 which is a little too high. So there could be a limitation on only making rations from whole meals, although I have good experience with this mod and it gets pretty annoying to split the meals up etc. Also the jars depreciate over time by 20 simoleans a day, and to my knowledge you cannot consign them.

With all the cooking involved I think this is a valid career no matter what is decided about the individual meals. It takes a lot of time.

Home Bakery/ Restaurant: the bakery store items (kids can sell baked goods they make too at the park or whatever), the business time industrial oven to make a restaurant, etc etc.

Beekeeping- Literally just buying hives and maintaining beehives, selling honey/wax at the consignment shop. This could also be a specific gardening career where only one crop is planted for the 'season', since bees will only choose one type of plant at a time. You can ALSO use the beeswax in the caning station with the mod above to make candles to sell. :3

Car Repair Shop- Again store content like Midnight Hollow's ability to have a car lot 'hangout' that earns income or (the better option), buying the fixer upper car and selling it once it's fixed up. I don't recall how many game hours it takes to fix the car up, but I think it's at least 9.

Forge- The Glassblowing set (Again store content). Sell homemade glass items.

Outdoorsman, selling things earned with festival tickets. I know there aren't a lot of levels in the 'sports' and it's easy to get to the top but festivals aren't in town every day, so maybe there's a rule that you can't buy your own half pipe or rinks to skill up outside of the festivals? Also, pie eating etc does not count.

Also, this one is not based on game content but what about being a personal trainer who trains sims at the gym, then adding money with the family funds cheat for each hour session worked?

...I'm guessing these have been discussed before for the challenge? But I'd rally love you opinions on these!

Just popping in to drop this, if anybody is interested:

Chapter 3.04 - Old Wives' Tales

The Marquels is back in the game!

ETA:
@Frogsnack: You've got some nice ideas, but I think some of those have already been incorporated. I'm pretty sure resorts are one of those things you're allowed to make money off anytime. The cannery and beehives would be part of the farmer career though. But you could always keep them seperate careers in your game and just roll manually for them.

Call me Ann, or ConDre/condre.
