The Moxley Legacy

The Moxley Legacy: Gen 2.3

Catch up: 1.1 | 1.2 | 2.1 | 2.2

*adopts serious voice* Previously on the Moxley Legacy…

Nikki, gen 2 heir, attended college where she was initially Grilled Cheese, and it drove me up the wall. Thankfully, she did well enough to re-roll her aspiration and became Popularity instead.

Her lifetime want is to have 50 Dream Dates, which is awesome. It’s one of my favourite aspirations, because it keeps the Sims happy, mood-boosted and if you date enough rich folks, you get lots of free swag.

All dream dates so far have taken place with the love of her life, Garruck. Garruck’s twin brother, Sorin, is married to Nikki’s twin sister, Brie. Brie is awesome. She cuts bitches.

Also, Nattie and Tyson, Brie and Nikki’s older siblings exist. And nobody cares.

Nikki is now moving home to live with her mothers, Mickie and Harriet.

The Moxley Legacy

The Moxley Legacy: Gen 2.2

Catch up: 1.1 | 1.2 | 2.1

*adopts serious voice* Previously on the Moxley Legacy…

Mickie and Harriet (lesbians), had two sets of twins, Nattie (Little Miss Perfect, who later became addicted to strip poker) and Tyson (who was recently abducted by aliens); and Brie (who cuts bitches); and Nikki (the heir).

Nikki found a boyfriend, Garruck, who has alien genetics. Brie’s beloved, Sorin, is Garruck’s twin. You can’t get much more twee than twins dating twins, can you?

Brie cuts bitches. Her two favourite bitches are: Cedric (a guy in combats and a CM Punk shirt), and Bad Santa (I have no idea what Bad Santa’s real name is).

Nikki’s lifetime want is to have 50 dream dates, which I love (free swag from grateful suitors), but have never succeeded in doing before (50 dates is a lot).

The Moxley Legacy

The Moxley Legacy: Gen 2.1

Catch up: 1.1 and 1.2

*adopts serious voice* Previously on the Moxley Legacy…

Our founder, Mickie, found NOBODY IN THE WORLD except for Harriet, so we married her and had two sets of twins: Tyson and Nattie, and Nikki and Brie.

Nattie became Little Miss Perfect despite the game’s insistence she missed ONE WHOLE DAY OF SCHOOL, Tyson started to unravel with unfulfilled family wants (ha!), Nikki realised she was the most beautiful thing in the world and Brie refused to react to anything, just like her mother, Harriet.

I sent them to college, and cheated a little to play Mickie up to the top of her career. She is now perma-plat.

I never announced it, but Nikki is heir.

The Moxley Legacy

The Moxley Legacy: Gen 1.2

Catch up: Gen 1.1

Sooo, quick catch up. Last update was full of fail. Not my Sims, but me. I failed to install necessary hacks, I didn’t have useful custom content, and my screen caps were mostly useless.

As far as the Moxleys are concerned, we started with founder, Mickie, who could find absolutely NO-ONE in the world, and then we fell in love with Harriet, the first Sim to walk by. Both women got pregnant, with batches of twins a day apart. First were Nattie and Tyson, then Nikki and Brie.

Also, Wing, my friend told me I’d been numbering this legacy wrong. I previously had switched over to the next generation number at birth, but apparently you only do that when the next gen torch-holder takes over. I bet you can’t wait to read more »

The Moxley Legacy

The Moxley Legacy: Gen 1.1

Soooo. A few years ago I uninstalled Sims 2 after deciding that Sims 3 would do. Not that it was great or anything, but it was roughly as enjoyable as Sims 2, and had the added bonus of horses and create a style. And I could use it to finally get around to a rainbow legacy. (That never happened.)

Moments after beginning the uninstall process, I began to panic, but kept telling myself to calm down, it was ok, I could learn to love Sims 3 as much as Sims 2.

As it turned out, I ceased loving either of them. I have no idea why I stopped playing, I suspect my job. *glares and kicks the work computer*

Anyway cut to about a month ago, I fired up Sims 3, ready to get my Sim on and realised that no, I could not love it as much as Sim 2, despite all of the nice things it had on offer.

So, I reinstalled Sims 2, thinking to myself, “This will be easy. After all, I kept my downloads, and I have that backup folder – I bet I could pick up where I left off.”

Yeah, no. Apparently in the quest for MOAR SPACE, I deleted pretty much all of my Sims 2 downloads. I did retain some and I literally can’t even guess at what my process was when it came to elimination. All my beautifully re-coloured hairs? Yeah, fuck them, let’s get them deleted. All of SunAir’s stuff that tends to push through walls that I haven’t used since they first released them? KEEP THAT SHIT!

So, yeah. Basically, I’m in for a world of hurt as I start this legacy and realise all of the crap I’m missing.

There’s plenty of fail on my end. You’ll see if you keep reading.

Sims 2 v Sims 3

5
Jul 2012

Ok, so now I’m going back and forth as to whether to install Sims 2 again.  This is because, since the update Sims 3 does not let me interact with any Sim.  And before it went to that level, it would not let me do any flirty/romantic interactions.  Before the update, the sims in question were flirting all over the place, kissing, making out, etc.  Now they can’t even watch the stars together.  Unless one of them autonomously suggests it.

So, Sims 2:

Pros:

  • Hacks are awesome, I know exactly what they all do
    • Do not have to choose between two different awesome mods, can have both
  • I miss Uni
  • I miss aliens
  • I miss my lovely defaults
  • I miss DM boots (thank you GoS, for putting them on everything)
  • It’s a fun game, damnit!
  • Bodyshop and the catalogue only take ages to load once, after that the thumbnails are cached, unlike S3
  • Can interact with other sims, no matter what hacks I have

Cons:

  • Have deleted everything, all of my backup discs are at least a year out of date
  • Hate that none of my custom objects match (unlike the lovely create a style thingie of S3)
  • Takes forever to load
    • That’s after it’s taken forever to install (silly Sarah bought the PC not the DVD version of almost all games)
  • Crashes often
  • Does not have the awesome story mode, so your spares will never grow old, get married, have children, etc
  • Uni takes ages to play through, no matter how much I miss it, I know I’ll get bored after the first semester
  • Always think it will be really easy to do a Rainbow legacy.  Never have enough of any colour ever.  Not a problem in S3

Fuck, I’m torn.

Last we left off, Dove was pregnant, her brothers and sisters had resigned themselves to a long tragic existence as townies, and Ava’s right nipple was constantly on show. Oh, and Dove was in labour.

The Clancy Legacy 2.3

The Clancy Legacy
The Clancy Legacy 2.3
OMG, teh happinez! My computer blew up a few months ago, and after finally getting off my arse and installing The Sims, I found a back-up of my Clancy family on an old disc. Ok, I had played the kids up to college, and now Jake and Elwood are now toddlers, but whatever! I have Ava and Captain Dumbass back! Oh, the happiness.

Catch up:
1.1
2.1 | 2.2

If you cannot be bothered to catch up, the recap is: Ava is a family sim, and she is married to the ex-vampire, Captain Dumbass (whose name I have changed using InSim, so I have no idea what he was really called). They have six children (three lots of twins): Corey and Carrie, Dana and Dove, and Jake and Elwood.

Ava was murdered by the Nanny, and Captain Dumbass moved in The Not-Mum.

I love/hate them all, so I have no idea who might end up being heir. Although I do love Dove a little bit more than everyone else.

Oh, and another thing, the kids looked like chipmunks in my last update and now they all look like angels. I have not done anything to them to change their looks – the difference is: brand new computer with an extra gig of ram, heavenly default replacement skins, and me discovering Gadwin for awesome screen caps, and The Booty for pretty hair and clothing. Oh, and Dove and Ava’s hair are different in this update because I accidentally removed their meshes.
Downside of replacement skins? Ava’s right nipple is constantly on show. Ignore it.
