SelfSim Legacy v2 Gen 5.1

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Last time, Wain grew up into some hot girly pants, Dale grew up into pirate gear and captained the HSS Bathtub, gen3 of the dogs finally died, and Dale put the moves on Ivy Copur to get a start on generation 5.


In order, these dogs are Queenie and Princess. It's their birthday and I'm really excited for the black one to grow up.

Here's Queenie. She's not bad. Shaggy fur and floppy ears is cute, but she's all white :/

Princess, though, stole the show. Meet the doggy heir.

Pregnant on the first try!

What's this? Catch in the graveyard? Could it be?
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

This took a while to get to. Is she hard to get for anyone else? Also, notice anything new?

And...
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Yes, popped the question!

For those of you that haven't picked up on the hints yet, here's your last one.

Wain and Blue are severely addicted to the hot tub. I'll start worrying when the snow's a foot deep.

Ivy Copur, Knowledge, Criminal Mastermind. Looks like a black Dagmar Bertino.

Hey, I don't remember buying that blanket-thing.

Also pregnant on the first try :D

This is their quiet living room and lightbulb helmet underwear marriage.

Time again for Blue Steele's birthday.

Purpose: Wain's spine piercings. Still kinda really freaked out by them.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I caved and downloaded the afro. It's cute, but I accidentally set it as her underwear, too.

PUPPIES!!
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

POP! I tombstoned her in. Stupid Seasons and its noncompatibility with lotfullofsims.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

So, goodbye Wain and Blue.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

and hello Stephen Gothier into Blue's life (and loins)
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Gothier's loaded with skills. If you can meet him early in a legacy, I totally recommend breeding him in. He throws nice-looking girls, but who cares if you catch him early? Even better, make him a lantsim and then spore an offspring: Instant slave with awesome skills!

I'm sure this is old news to everyone who has Season and Pets but I CAN BARELY SEE MY DOGS AND THE PUPPIES ARE GONE! Heehee, deep snow. Unfortunatly, I may have to delete tombstones to prevent lag because of the heavy load of snow.

I see the penguin every time the snow is deep. He's not as great as everyone made him out to be.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I was wondering why this random, uninvited man was in the graveyard in his bathing suit. Turns out he's the gardener. Outerwear: you're doing it wrong.
I was wondering how he got into his bathing suit in the first place. He shortcuts through the pool on his way to the cemetery. BUH?!
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

The whole family prefers this bathtub over the expensive showerbath on the first floor and the almost-as-expensive shower stall upstairs in the master suite. Even the wolf finds it weird.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I'm going to regret bringing Ivy in.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Thanks, Dagmar, but Wain moved out like, a year ago.

*sigh*

Uh, now for more pictures of a birth than you ever wanted.

I don't remember why I took that many, but here's a baby! Clark has his father's skin, but his mother's hair and eyes. Also, let's add this picture to Dale's growing album of "Pictures in Which I Look Intoxicated".
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

This one, too. Wain's here! Actually, a ton of spares were over for this birth. The bedroom had 6 people in it.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I find it intriguing that the cars don't get snow on them. At all.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

It was a rather generic snowman, in case you wanted to see.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Oh, this is exciting! I love when the animals grow up.
How can you not love this dog?? I do.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

OK, now how about her sister?
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Adonis, the puppies' father, was the sixth dog promoted to the top of his career (showbiz, he's a star). I know because Dale's plumbob is a nice shade of platinum (uh, but his LTW didn't change...). So far, the only regular grave on the lot will be my selfsim's, which means I am doomed to a life of major fail.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

He really is a star, don't you think?
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

So. All the dogs came to the howling party except the puppies' mother (Princess, gen 6 heir), who was at work. There's a lot of cute doggies on this lot. Including Belle, who peed on the reaper. I have the game exited as I type this, so let's see how many of the dogs' names I remember. On the far left there's Brutus (gen 5 spouse), who you might remember from last update, then Bobby (gen 4 heir) consulting with Grim, Arachne's (gen 7) the spotty one, Belle's (gen 4 spouse) peeing on Grim, then from top to bottom on the right there's Ariadne (gen 7), Adonis (gen 6 spouse), and Maggie (gen 5 heir). I get them all mixed up all the time.

A couple days pass and Belle dies with the accompanying howling party. That's her great-granddaughters Ariadne and Arachne.

I recommend Breed Standard to anyone who has Pets, it's great fun to see what you get. First, though, get the blank Pets template, or you'll end up with really bad variety.

This must be the male version of Andrea Hogan. No wonder Philippe looks weird.

I think this generation is my only sims babies ever to grow up right at 6pm.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Uh, hmm. Clingy much, Clark?
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

He fears the fish dying. Obviously, he's new: the animals in this house die all the time. Especially the fish.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Here he is, the wall-eyed little monster. Take note of his ears.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

See Ivy's ears. Yes, some sims have sticky-outie ears *frown* Oh well, such is the spice of life.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

At least he's quiet.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

The portraits were finished. Completely done by Ivy, since she wanted to max out her creativity.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Your bonus picture this update is Arachne! If anyone can tell me which drugs she's on and where I can get a hold of them (FOR A FRIEND), please let me know.
I can't contain myself while looking at this picture. It's too great!
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket


Yes, so, this may be the last update for a long time. I'm trying to update everything one last time before I go. I still have a founder challenge bandwagon to catch and another chapter or two of Pleasantview. When I come back, expect massive updating. Hey, at least I'm leaving you with a cracked-out Chihuahua cross, right?
Missing something?

Oh dear heaven, that is the BEST doggie picture ever. And I'm including real life in that statement. :)

I laugh every single time I see it. I only paused the game to take a look at a walkby, but I noticed the dog's ears were up and that's what I saw when I swung around to her face. I DIED

Hehe. The pup peeing on Grim? Fantastic!

I really like your sims. They're different and pretty and awesome.

Yeah...I don't know what to expect from him now :/ I would like a female heir this gen, so he's not in the running :P

I love all these dogs!! They're so colorful. I married Ivy to my legacy founder, so I really adore her. Not sure what sort of kids she'll give you, her sons in my legacy ended up with pretty big noses, but nothing too insane. I have little dogs too and they always vanish under the snow. It's really cute when they chase visitors around, and all you see is this mound of snow trailing behind the sim. I love how your sims would rather soak in the outdoor doggie bathtub. Passersby must enjoy that. I adored Belle peeing on Grim, until he came back for revenge, lol.

I can't stand their obsession with that tub! They all have 7+ Neat points, so they all shower if they're missing 1/4 of their hygiene bars and I haven't queued anything up. Gah. Other sims are constantly being shocked just walking out the front door. *sigh*
I can't wait for the pets portion to be over (I'm only bringing them to 10 generations, I can't possibly continue them throughout the family). And I agree, total revenge on the reaper's part.

That last photo is brilliant! I love Princess and her pups. They're so cute.

I'm a pretty big fan of Ivy Copur too. A great choice of townie to marry in to the family.

I really enjoyed this! :)

Thank you!

She's the exact same template as Dagmar, but I like her anyway.

How do you get your graves to stay? If I leave mine on the lot, usually one disappears a night when the other ghosts jump in and out of it *cries* I've been moving them to a community lot in my current legacy, but it's annoying to do. Plus the times I've been there, no ghosts have been out and about :(

Princess and the puppies ARE ADORABLE! I'm trying to breed cats, but they barely know each other and I don't want to have to cheat.

I've heard of them disappearing if there's plants/weeds near them, but not when other ghosts jump in! So, the graves aren't coming back? That's really weird.n I haven't tried the community cemetery yet, but I'm tempted to considering how much my game lags with snowfall+ghosts wandering.

I find it's easier to breed the animals when one is an adult and the other a baby, since the adult dog will nuzzle the baby and gain relationship points. You them praise the adult dog for playfulness so that it won't start fights later on. When I have two adult dogs that need relationship boosts, I praise their playfulness and teach them a couple tricks (the teaching gains relationship with the sim and the actual commanding of the tricks gains relationship faster). In other words, I work my butt off to get the dogs friendly and try to get my next 'spouse' while the 'heir' is still a puppy.

Enough from me, I need to nap (almost 11pm here, since I know you need some relevance...it's like, early morning in Aus, right?)

Lunch time, actually. I'm huuuuuuungry.

Nope, the graves don't come back. They just...disappear D: At the end of my last legacy I only had... three left I think (one of them was Brandi LeT's AND SHE WAS AN EVIL EVIL GHOST and of course hers is the one I WANTED to disappear, but was one of the only to last). And I have the perfect plants hack, so I didn't have any weeds, and the only thing that did anything to them were other ghosts.

I have no problem getting a sim-pet relationship. All my sims like dropping everything to play with the pets and will play FOREVER. I've just never EVER had the pets like each other. Most of the time they don't even meet o_O

12 hours? Wow...wait, right, exact opposite side of the world from me *facepalm* I always think Australia is so close for some reason. And you're going into Summer! *is jealous*

Graves: Very strange...

Pets don't meet? I've had that! Cats...take away their toys so they have to play with each other :D I went off on a tangent about the training/praising (ADD), but I wanted to say that praising for playfulness actually seems to make the animals play with each other more. Also, the sim can tell the newly-playful pet to play with another pet. I had to do that with one of the dogs because he was mean and nasty.

Also, the sim can tell the newly-playful pet to play with another pet.
I KNEW I'D SEEN THAT OPTION BEFORE. Seriously, I've been looking for it on my cats now and thought I was be mis-remembering something. Haha! Now I just have to catch my cats being playful. The only thing I usually notice them for is if they're eating pet food or not scratching furniture or staying off sims beds LOL.

:D Usually, when the animal approaches the sim, playfulness cam be praised. I feel like an expert on these stupid things because of the insane amount of dogs I've raised in this game lol.
Glad to help. Good luck with the breeding, it's great fun once you get going!

Thanks! I've had the EP since it came out and I've never been able to breed pets D: and I've never had a werewolf. Or a plantsim.
