SelfSim Legacy Gen 7.3

Last time, Myra earned §100 000 but wasn't given perma-plat for it (it has been fixed), Cleo got some lovin from various NPCs, Gen 7 was looking cute, and the girls were accepted into private school.

We'll start this one right off with a glitch. Why a glitch? Because I installed Free Time, that's why!

The dogs were pulled out of the ground, only for one to die and one to turn into an elder. BOOOORING

Did you know they can tinker with the hot tub? I let them keep whatever the game assigned them, and I have NO REPEATS. Would you believe it?

If you suck at tinkering, though, you break things. Hmph.

I think it's awesome you can take the dogs on hikes. Fern goes on a lot of hikes just so I can clear the house out.

He came back from the hike to bathe outdoors in the pouring rain. Hey, at least he was almost bottoming out his hygiene this time, right?

This guy was struck by lightning in the hot tub. He went straight home.

Guess whose birthday it is! go on, guess!

Did you guess Leona? You should have.

OH MY GOD I was tempted to let her keep it, but she has a blue and white theme.

She looks almost identical to her grandmother. It's not a bad thing...but it's not a good thing. She rolled Family, likes athletic redheads that don't wear glasses, and wants to be a superhero.

Here's Kimberly, in case you forgot.

They're similar, but not the same. Leona's chin and nose stick out more, while Kimberly has HUGE eyes and is blonde.

Leona: You really don't think I look like her, do you? Get real!
Anyone recognize this pic? It's the picture used for sim_rants's new favourite icon!

Myra caught some butterflies before the bees got to her. I laughed hysterically at this animation.

The BFFs thing is new and strange. Cleo has 13!! Fern has 9, though. You think there's a LTW related to BFFs? Like, 10 or 15 of them?

Guess what Myra's hobby is. I'll give you a hint, it has to do with the violin.

Who's this kid? I hovered over him to find out: Orlando Bertino, who I was allowed to age up with Leona. He's so cute.


Here's a dog! Hi, Hansel!

Kimberly was dropping actions and I was freaking out because I didn't want that bug. Turns out, her grandmother was dying.

Thanks, Cleo, for turning your grandaughter into an alcoholic.

Oh, and thanks for dying in the middle of her date so that she cried for the rest of it.

Mostly, though, thank you for your platinum grave. Who's a rock star? YOU ARE...were.

Leona was upset.

A little.

Ok, a lot.

My dogs have been having single births for a while. Is there a reason?

Anyway, that's Ray, the thirteenth generation dog.

His grandfather hates him.

I can't keep going with only having one puppy at a time. Not enough variety.

Kimberly's the tinkerer in the house, remember? Let's start this puppy up.

I'm a mechanic's daughter and I deem this unacceptable. We'll work on the engine first, k?

Fern is middle-aged, which is cleverly represented by a haircut and removal of his piercings. Is there no end to his hotness?

He caught bugs. Apparently, one of them is a Ringo beetle. You realize now that he's going to be on bughunts all the time until I find John, Paul, and George beetles, right?

Instead, I'll just send him to Peerless park, the nature enthusiasts' commune with Hansel.

It was exciting. Fern made hotdogs...

Overfed some koi...

And met this woman


Another puppy was had. Meet Domino.

Other than screwing with various household items, there's not much to do to gain Tinkering enthusiasm. Kimberly will happily do this until it's time to shower.

OMG RAY GREW UP. Definitely another one for the second set of dogs.

Wow, look who Leona brought home.

Oh, hey, a puppy! This is Lily, the only non-white small dog female in the pound.

Binary cash! Does that mean they only have §83? /lame joke

You know, I like her with a little weight on her. It looks good.

Unfortunately, all that swimming made her fit.

For skittlebox, ohcherub, and simulfacts: MOAR BETTY

The bodywork completed, Kimberly attacked the engine.


It needs an entire windshield, but nothing a little paint won't fix!

Yellow, her favourite. (OMG the car is sexy, but I wish it was blue)

Myra: Here, Leona, have this free meal coupon and cologne. Maybe the boys will like you more.
Leona: Thanks, mom!

And, um, a dog died. THE END

So, that's 7.3. My plan today is to play through 8.1 (Kimberly won 12-3-1) in its entireity. It's so hard to play this legacy because of the laggy lot, but I refuse to move them. I think it's time to delete the graves and sell some objects. There's a lot of pet graves and a LOT of objects I never use.

Missing some?

I still lol'd, lol.

Um, uh oh. That's Betty's grave. I SWEAR I HAD HER REGISTERED BUT I DON'T. I as going to add her DL to the end of this update but I guess she died before I could register her. I'll look around to see what I can do.

I will recreate her in CAP. I did it with Biffy and I'm sure I can do Betty. LOL, Betty and Biffy, I named them after restaurants I passed all the time on my way to work.

You could resurrect her just to do that, couldn't you?
Apr. 5th, 2008 02:59 pm (UTC)
Resurrect? OH YEAH
Does the Tombstone do that or the Lot Debugger? I've never resurrected before and I don't have OFB/Uni or the genie yet. How do I get the lamp?

The Tombstone works like SimPE does, doesn't it? I'm not so familiar with it, but I use SimPE's resurrection feature, and I'd guess it's much the same. In SimPE, you just use the tombstone object (I think it might be called the death adjuster), and you get a menu of all of the dead sims that can be resurrected.

The genie shows up when a lot of sims on the lot have reached the maximum hobby interest level. I read that in the guide.

Ugh. I meant InSIM. My brain hurts...
Apr. 5th, 2008 03:15 pm (UTC)
Ah, I don't have InSIM, but I'll try the Tombstone first. Thank,s though!
Apr. 5th, 2008 01:26 pm (UTC)
Wow. Betty is really a work of art. Such a TINY neck!

Awww. I loved the doggy car ride! So cute.

How do you put the tattoos on your sims? Is it part of a cc skin, or something you add separately? I really like Myra's full sleeves, and it's such a cool contrast when she's playing the violin.
Apr. 5th, 2008 01:35 pm (UTC)
It's a tat skin that I townied/geneticised (Kimberly has tats, too, but different ones. More real to me). I get all my tat skins off MTS2 by searching 'tattoo'. Specifically, it's this one, if you're interested. That creator does some great, full, tattoos. In the search to get you that link, I found a tatoo skin with a TAN VERSION :D *grin* More tat skins

Thanks! Tattoos like that could be very useful for a story. I love the full sleeves. It's cool that they show up on your townies. The maid has them too, right? If they're genetic, does that mean sims can be born with a tattoo? Do they show up on children?
Apr. 5th, 2008 02:52 pm (UTC)
I townied/geneticised them myself and yes, they show up on townies (like Myra) and children (like Kimberly, Myra's child). I love it, adds a little more realism and variety. Fern's skintone is a freckled one geneticised by me. So cute.
I work with SimPE and don't find it difficult, so I'm sure you'll have no problem. Flags=0, genetic=whatever you think is best between 0 and 1.
Apr. 5th, 2008 03:12 pm (UTC)
That does seem easy enough. I may just give it a try one day.

It's funny for a child to be born with tattoos. I wouldn't mess with a little girl with tats. At all. :P
Apr. 5th, 2008 03:14 pm (UTC)
LOL, silly. The tats don't show up until teenage, but I know the skins enough to tell by the texture of the actual skin that a newborn has a tat skin.
Apr. 5th, 2008 03:16 pm (UTC)
*snicker* Well, that makes more sense, but it would be much FUNNIER if it appeared on children too.
Apr. 5th, 2008 01:47 pm (UTC)
*dryhumps Fern* You're one sexy, middle-aged man. I still need to get in my game. Damn you, school work! D:
Apr. 5th, 2008 01:57 pm (UTC)
He's something else. I love playing him. Whenyou get everything sorted out and have him in your game, show him off! I'd love to see him after you're through!

I love that in-joke so much.
Apr. 6th, 2008 05:57 am (UTC)
LOL at your binary joke
Apr. 6th, 2008 12:16 pm (UTC)
:D I'm a total nerd.

That toally took me back to the days I took programming in college
