new project

Just a quick note to say that I've started a new project. Because clearly, I don't waste enough time in a day.

The basic gist of it is that it's a story-telling blog for the Legacy Challenge in Sims3. You create a Sim with humble beginnings, and then through 10 generations try to lead them to fame, fortune and success.

The most obvious rules:
Can't cheat (obviously)
Can't pick your traits for your Sims, other than the Founder.

Both those are hard rules for me to follow. I usually move my Sims into a house, and then give them 50k to afford the best stuff. And, I never let my Sims have "bad" traits, like Klepto or Insane. I much prefer them to have characteristics such as Brave, or Athletic, or whatever.

Also, the house thing. I've NEVER built one in all my time playing the Sims (2 & 3), nor have I ever done any kind of story-telling within game either. So those are definitely going to be challenges as well.

Anyway, if you want to check it out, it's called The Wisk Legacy.

I can't promise it'll be as good as The Broxton Legacy and it definitely won't be as good as Alice & Kev: A tale of being homeless in Sims3, but I'll try my best!

(Housekeeping note: the blog layout and style is still very much under construction. Thanks!)

Good luck Sarah! I used to love the Sims way back in the day and working a Sim up without cheating IS hard. (I usually made pawns who did nothing but earn dollars then had my main character marry and kill them off) House building is awesome though_Have fun! ;-)

I LOVE Sims! I haven't played in almost a year though. I really want to buy 3, but I just can't justify spending time on the game when I should be spending it with my baby. I'm so envious. Do you love the new version? How is it better? I couldn't go without cheating either. I always use the motherlode cheat. I did build my own houses though. Some were complete disasters. I think I had every expansion pack for both 1 and 2 as well. I was a total nerd about it, but I loved it.

Have fun with 3!
