Hello Again, Sims 3

New computer, new Sims install. I am going to try, for the third time, to do a Legacy Challenge from beginning to end. The issue I began having with the last attempt, besides slow loading and all that jazz, was incest. EA might not think of kissing cousins as an issue, but it creeped me out.


This time I’m going to try and actually follow the rules. Which will be hard. I really enjoy creating pretty Sims for the legacy heirs to breed with, but alas that defeats the purpose of the challenge. But if the only options are cousins down the line I’m cheating, sorry. Also, going to try and limit each generation to two kids tops.

(As an aside, I have decided to wait until EA releases a Sims 4 Plus version or whatever, instead of doing what I usually do and buy the latest Sims ASAP. Because of reasons.)

I have to say that I am really enjoying Seasons. Although it seems to rain a bit too much but then again maybe my Sims live in Seattle and I just don’t know it. One thing I really don’t like are the aliens. I was never a huge fan of them in the Sims 2 either but the Sims 3 versions are a little too uncanny valley for me and give me the hebejebes.

There is water here

I told Kate I would take pictures of water effects in my Sims 3 game so here it is!

That is Taylor Jane in Sunset Valley. I love her but am not really showing her off because she has the same piercings as Zyke because there aren’t any others I like for her right now. 🙁 Also, I don’t know if I’m keeping that Sunset Valley game, but I might just leave it as a dumping ground for sims I don’t want to age and die.

And here is where she lives–I didn’t make this, I just wanted to play it. And it is only able to be played in Sunset Valley. Thus me starting a game there!

Jan twisted my arm and I think I will try my hand at a legacy.
