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.

 

The Moxley Legacy
So, this is my founder, Mickie Moxley. Why yes, there is a wrestling theme in the name. Glad you noticed. And be so proud, she is not facial template 1. She is facial template 22. I did take a cap of her personality and points, but guess what? Fail #1 happened.

So, I installed Gadwin, because I remember back in the day that Gadwin was the programme for me, as I could never get along with FRAPS. Guess what? Gadwin has since updated and become fucking useless for Simmers. I have thousands of pictures of the ceiling tiles, the walls, the plants, whatever the fuck I was not pointing the camera at, that’s what I ended up with a cap of.

Luckily I noticed this roughly around the time the babies appeared. Yeah, basically I missed out on all of the pregnancy lolz. FRAPS is also kicking my ass on a regular basis because I keep forgetting which hotkey is assigned.

The Moxley Legacy
This! This I have. And about 73 other caps of this information. *seethes*

I’ve used SimPE to find out all the other stuff.

The Moxley Legacy
As is obligatory, I sent Mickie downtown. And this lovely lady turned up. And nobody else did.

And at that point I went, “Oh yeah. I haven’t spawned any fucking townies.” Fail #2

The Moxley Legacy
After spawning three batches of townies, none of which walked by or were in downtown locations, failing to locate the townie Mickie met earlier, and after the promise of a welcome wagon that contained ABSOLUTELY NOBODY. I gave up.

Then she turned up. I don’t care who she is. I don’t care what her personality’s like. I don’t care if she and Mickie have any attraction at all. SHE WILL DO.

As the first Sim to show up, this yellow shirt chick is now the love of mine and Mickie’s life, ok?

The Moxley Legacy
Mickie: Soooo… awkward situation. I really need someone to have babies with, since NOBODY ELSE IN THE WHOLE WORLD EXISTS. Wanna repopulate?
Yellow Shirt Chick: You’re choosing me?
Mickie: Sure. Sure, I’m choosing you.

The Moxley Legacy
Oh look. More people. After I’ve just wasted a billion sim hours befriending yellow-shirt-chick.

Desperate Guy copping a feel of Mickie: I’ll have babies with you!
Me and Mickie: Too late, we like the yellow shirt chick.

The Moxley Legacy
Ah. She’s called Harriet. And we’ll take the money too.

The Moxley Legacy
That bed? Made by SunAir. Yup.

The Moxley Legacy
The Moxley Legacy
Your sex faces look evil, just sayin’.

The Moxley Legacy
So, that’s what happens when you get a cut scene on a bet with no cover. Interesting.

The Moxley Legacy
D’awww, I think they enjoyed it.

But why am I not hearing a jingle? Get pregnant now! *twitches*

The Moxley Legacy
Not loving your undies, Harriet. Why the hell are they even in my downloads folder?

The Moxley Legacy
I spent Harriet’s $20k. Not even sorry.

The Moxley Legacy
Harriet: Are you admiring me from down there? *flattering*

The Moxley Legacy
Mickie: *mumbles something about the world being empty aside from Harriet*

The Moxley Legacy
Mickie: So, shiny? Have my babies? Keep your free will forever?

The Moxley Legacy
And just in case she’s a romance Sim, we went through with the marriage at top speed before it became a fear for her. Then more sex was had. AND NO JINGLE. GIMME BABIES DAMNIT.

The Moxley Legacy
Risky strategy using Harriet’s one command to get her a job? Well, no, because what if she’s a fortune Sim? And if she’s not, I can’t remember who gets pregnant with the preg-for-all hack I’ve got, so she’s either keep on earning to keep the repoman away, or she’ll be popping out sprogs. It’ll be fine.

The Moxley Legacy
Why this pic? Two reasons: 1) it was one of the few that wasn’t of ceiling tiles; and 2) FUCK YOU SIMS 3 – BUBBLE BATHS ARE A NECESSITY! HAVING TO SHOP FOR BUBBLE BATH IS JUST MEAN!

The Moxley Legacy
Fine, do that. You’ll probably need the body points for a career in the Hunger Games. And it’s not like you’re being any help in the quest for the next generation.

The Moxley Legacy
Oh, look at you! Who’s a clever little soldier who can feed themselves? *so proud*

The Moxley Legacy
… or not.

The Moxley Legacy
*rubs eyes* Well, you’ve not got food poisoning because you stopped cooking to complain you’re starving. Maybe I just didn’t hear the jingle.

The Moxley Legacy
Uh-huh.

Fail #3: Oh yeah, the ability to wear everyday when pregnancy was a hack. FFS. I wonder…

The Moxley Legacy
… oh good, I can bully it with InSim.

Also, Harriet is just thrilled to be pregnant.

The Moxley Legacy
What’s up Mickie? The sound was low. Are you getting a cold? HOW? YOU’VE NOT BEEN OUTSIDE SINCE YOU MET HARRIET!

The Moxley Legacy
Oh, yummy food animation. Right.

The Moxley Legacy
Since Harriet won’t stay away from the ballet bar, I keep getting Mickie to lure her into bed for sex. This is a great plan.

The Moxley Legacy
… Right up until this happened.

Both adults are pregnant.

Time for a FMSL moment – see text 2 from Wing (my BFF) in the exchange below.

FMSL

The Moxley Legacy
That shockface? Matches mine right now.

The Moxley Legacy
Mickie: So, funny story. You know how you’re having my babies? Well, I’m having yours.
Harriet: That’s nice, dear.

I feel that Harriet is not really grasping the awfulness of this situation. Two pregnant adults, and at least two babies to care for at the end of it.

I give you the life of Harriet Moxley:

The Moxley Legacy
The Moxley Legacy
Yup, that’s her routine.

The Moxley Legacy
Harriet: Is it ballet time yet?

The Moxley Legacy
Harriet, either eat or go to bed!

The Moxley Legacy
Harriet: OMG! I’M HAVING BABBIEZ! ISN’T IT WONDERFUL!

Well, it’s an improvement on her last reaction to a pop.

The Moxley Legacy
This is the only way to get Harriet away from the ballet bar. Which is annoying on two counts: 1) She’s preggo and could die; and 2) Ballet is Mickie’s LTW. She NEEDS the body points.

The Moxley Legacy
Harriet! What on earth are you doing?

Harriet: I heard you muttering darkly that if I didn’t die of exhaustion, I’d die of starvation.

You’re absolutely right. My bad. I should’ve mentioned food poisoning specifically to avoid this situation.

The Moxley Legacy
Oh fuck off, Mickie.

The Moxley Legacy
Mickie: I’m still preg, even if you put me in clothes with no preg morph.

The Moxley Legacy
Had to take this picture with the walls down just to illustrate how close Harriet actually was to some form of entertainment. Did she use it? Nope. She just went to the ballet bar again.

The Moxley Legacy
Now this is embarrassing. Harriet has yet to pee herself. The Sim I can actually control has.

The Moxley Legacy
Fuck the pair of you, with your matching maternity wear.

The Moxley Legacy
Well, at least this has evened the score.

The Moxley Legacy
Mickie’s family, so she can make soup. I remembered that much.

The Moxley Legacy
FUCKING SERIOUSLY? You are dying of starvation, Mickie is cooking for you and you pick now to give birth?

The Moxley Legacy
BRILLIANT.

Fail #4: No caps of the twins. It was a boy and a girl, which I named Tyson and Nattie. Don’t ponder that too much, ok?

The Moxley Legacy
I don’t know if this is exhaustion or a suicide attempt. Death by broth.

The Moxley Legacy
Thanks to a shorter life hack, it was only yesterday they came into the world.

The Moxley Legacy
NO! NO! NO! Do NOT walk away from the fire! What could possibly be more important–

The Moxley Legacy
— of course.

The Moxley Legacy
The Moxley Legacy
Let’s live dangerously!

The Moxley Legacy
EPIC!

Fail #5: No caps of these twins either. Two girls, named Nikki and Brie. And I have to say, based on name alone, Nikki will be hard to beat for heir.

The Moxley Legacy
Harriet: Repopulate the earth, she said. I didn’t realise she meant in only one pregnancy!

The Moxley Legacy
Harriet: Fuck my Sim life!

Also, while digging for Mickie’s stats, I looked up Harriet’s just out of interest. I still don’t know her LTW, but here’s her personality:

Harriet Moxley
Fortune
+Fatness +Swimwear / -Logical
She likes fatness and her wife’s LTW is ballet. Truly a match made in heaven.
Sloppy/Neat: 6
Shy/Outgoing: 5
Lazy/Active: 8
Serious/Playful: 3
Grouchy/Nice: 3
