The Moxley Legacy

The Moxley Legacy: Gen 2.4

So, last update I did something so magnificently stupid that someone ought to give me a medal.

Even worse? After playing this game for twelve years, I didn’t know it was stupid.

Here is the stupid thing I did.

The Moxley Legacy
For the love of all that is holy DO NOT GIFT GRAVE STONES.

I have managed to destroy my legacy, for the sake of a quick joke. I am ridiculously stupid.

Since that update, I haven’t managed to get into Nikki’s lot for longer than a minute before it crashes my game. At first, I didn’t even know what was wrong, so I cleared out my downloads – which, to be fair, I should’ve done ages ago. Quick pro-tip? Use this wonderful, awesome and magical tutorial.

Eventually, after a bit of googling, it suddenly occurred to me that gravestones are odd little blighters, and Maxis gave us free rein to do what we want to them, despite the face it will bork games. And that’s when I found out that gifting tombstones is fatal to the lot.

So, since I didn’t want to start a new legacy, I moved over to Brie’s lot. Which crashed, because she had the gravestone too. I managed to reload, then the first thing I did was send the tombstone to a custom community lot, then reloaded, and Brie’s lot now works.

Only problem, I’d played Brie a bit so she and Sorin are married and have two kids already, so we missed the toddler stage.

tl;dr: WE ARE PLAYING BRIE NOW BECAUSE I AM STUPID.
The Moxley Legacy


The Moxley Legacy
This is the house I built for Brie. She’s on a 3×3 lot because I had a weird theory that the smaller the lot the longer time I would have before it crashed. I’m not sure if it was a stupid theory or not, but it works and does not crash, so I’m happy.

The Moxley Legacy
And just to recap, this is the adorable Brie. Cutter of bitches and newest Legacy Heir.

The Moxley Legacy
Brie and Sorin have twin girls, Trish…

The Moxley Legacy
… and Stardust.

The Moxley Legacy
Remember how I loved Sorin? That he and Brie were my OTP? That I adored the pair of them together?
Yeah, no. Over it. I hate Sorin. He does nothing other than follow Brie around. He is literally incapable of doing anything other than ACR-ing with her. I haven’t changed my settings, and they’re not usually problematic, but he is just obsessed – to the point where he has so many ACR items queued up with Brie, she will quit out of cooking, doing homework with the kids, putting out fires – you name it, he will lurk around next to her until she bangs him. I HATE Sorin.

The Moxley Legacy
See?

The Moxley Legacy
When I was cropping the caps for this update I finally remembered to hunt down an alternative 2×2 dining table. I love this one. Except for the 10′ high plant in the middle that always obscures someone in a picture.

The Moxley Legacy
I think I spent the entirity of the college years bemoaning the fact that nobody would ever paint Jon Moxley. Trish does so on the first try. That said, I really have to change my custom paintings. It’s so jarring to have real people pictures in the Sims.

The Moxley Legacy
I have no idea how watching something that looks like the apocalypse garners athletic enthusiasm, but I’ll take it.

The Moxley Legacy
This is Brie’s LTW, however, when I got her out of college, I played a few hours with cheats on, so she’s very high in that career already.

The Moxley Legacy
So, even though it’s not strictly ISBI, I’m going to try for Sorin’s LTW instead.

The Moxley Legacy
Apparently, Sorin thinks that was his first time. Clearly those four years in college spent banging in the hot tub and Brie’s room don’t count.

The Moxley Legacy
There’s always one, isn’t there?

The Moxley Legacy
Of course, Trish is just opting not to sleep, which is also awesome.

The Moxley Legacy
Trish then went and started stomping bugs. Which is always the first sign before everyone gets sick and keeps infecting each other because I can’t control anyone but Brie. Everyone immediately rolled fears of getting sick and started crying about the bugs.

The Moxley Legacy
Also, after twelve years, I’ve finally gotten my rear end in gear and plopped down a few hood decorations. It actually makes a difference.

The Moxley Legacy
Brie has all the cooking skill points in the world and still she burns food. Also, this is the same Brie who got into a fight with everyone over nothing. I’m shocked she didn’t throw a tantrum. I must say, I do love Sims 3 for the ability to detonate stuff. Brie would want to detonate everything.

The Moxley Legacy
This is a new problem that my computer has – each trimester produces nudity.

The Moxley Legacy
Remember that I hate Sorin? This picture just ups the creepiness factor.

The Moxley Legacy
Sorin is not tired. So he’s just going to lie next to Brie until she wakes up so they can bang.
I hate you, you stalky, useless waste of space.

The Moxley Legacy
Well, that was money well spent. And the kids are still crying over the bug infestation. To prevent this in the future, I’ve surrounded my rubbish bin with a fence, and locked it to non-household. Given that Brie kicked a lot of ass over the college years, there’s a metric fucktonne of people who want to kick it over, and I cannot face the crying over bugs.

The Moxley Legacy
Another pop for Brie. Why is this going so fast? I use the 12 hour pregnancy mod. Since I’ve got a hack which halves the lifespan, shortening the pregnancy isn’t that big of a deal. Also, since the girls were already kids, I needed to speed this up so they’re not too far apart in age.

The Moxley Legacy
Sorin has confusion.

The Moxley Legacy

The Moxley Legacy
Write what you know, Brie.

The Moxley Legacy
That seems rather high, but she does have high creativity for her job.

The Moxley Legacy
Since nothing is happening, it seems a good time to invite the headmaster over.

The Moxley Legacy

The Moxley Legacy
This kids head off to regular school.

The Moxley Legacy
Which means they miss Brie going into labour. Sorin, naturally, just wants to bang her. Literally, as she was giving birth “Relax” was in her queue straight after. I hate him.

The Moxley Legacy
We have a boy, named Heath.

The Moxley Legacy
Despite the promise of maternity leave, Brie’s transport for work arrives, so I have to have her call in sick, which is annoying because she’s now not working for another four days. Which means I have four days of just watching Sorin stalk Brie constantly. I might kill him off. I’m not kidding. I tried messing with the settings of ACR and it did nothing to help. I even turned Brie gay to see if that would stop him. No. When I finished this session, I downloaded the next version of ACR, which has a “friendzone” option. I’m praying that will work. (And yes, even letting them ACR won’t make it stop, the minute they do something ACR, Sorin wants to do something else ACR.)

The Moxley Legacy
Despite all of Sorin’s attempts to destroy the house (he interrupted Brie twice during cooking for woohoo, and three times during the tour of the house, forcing me to send him to a corner of the lot and pose while she finished cooking), dinner comes out ok, and the Headmaster likes it.

The Moxley Legacy
However, his interests are in direct contrast to Brie’s, and every interaction she tries decreases the overall score.

The Moxley Legacy
Eventually, I have her perform the school cheer. Nine times.

The Moxley Legacy
With a smile like that, I’m not sure Brie should be so happy her kids are in his care for five hours a day. Also, ignore the names. When Brie took over as heir, her kids had to have wrestling-themed names, I just kept thinking I had to wait until the kids were not doing anything of importance, I didn’t realise I could change their names while controlling Brie.

The Moxley Legacy
Sorin yet again proves that he’s a waste of space. He desperately wants to bang Brie, but she’s busy helping Trish with her homework, so he’s just going to sit in the room and wait for her to finish.

The Moxley Legacy
Finally he does something that doesn’t make me want to kill him with fire.

The Moxley Legacy
*sigh*

The Moxley Legacy
Heath is getting a very truncated lifespan. I want him to try to catch up to the twins so they can all go to college together.

The Moxley Legacy
Bless, he’s cute

The Moxley Legacy
This is Pogo Stick Elastoplast. I decreed that my husband should name everyone in that particular legacy and I feel the power went to his head. Her sister is called Trampoline and her father is called Moobs. She is Nattie’s daughter, so she’s the kids’ cousin. She’s been wanting to come home with them every night so far, but I kept turning her down because something was happening (a pile-up of homework, the headmaster visiting, etc). Apparently, I shouldn’t have worried, she’ll just entertain herself.
Also, please note the pictures behind her. I saw them in alittlestrange‘s game and immediately copied her brilliant idea. They’re by livingdeadgirl on TSR.

The Moxley Legacy
Which is good, because the twins don’t seem to realise they can make friends beyond each other. And Sorin’s so barely functional, I’m frankly amazed he’s even bothered to approach his kids.

The Moxley Legacy
This is the only picture I have of Heath’s toddlerhood, which is odd, because I actually set Brie on teaching him everything. Including that blasted nursery rhyme which takes a billion week to learn. Especially with Sorin interrupting Brie every three seconds to try to bang her.

The Moxley Legacy
Seeing the kids and toddlers hug the toy always melts my heart.

The Moxley Legacy
Nooooo! Heath must catch up with them! I can’t deal with them being different ages.

The Moxley Legacy
I set Brie novel writing again. And, once more, Brie writes what she knows.

The Moxley Legacy
That makes one of us. I’m not quite such a fan after dealing with Sorin.

The Moxley Legacy
Finally, one of the kids realises that the ballet barre exists, and, as a Moxley, they must swarm towards it. Trish is growing on me.

The Moxley Legacy
Brie had a want to get fit, so I had her work out. Sorin waited patiently next to the running machine until she was done. Having read alittlestrange‘s legacy, I shouldn’t have wasted my money on a running machine, I should’ve bought an exercise bike, aka, The Husband Killer.
Brie: I AM FIT! THIS WILL MAKE MY ASS KICKING EVEN MORE EPIC! ALL BOW DOWN BEFORE ME!
Sorin: You are even more beautiful now. I must have you. RIGHT NOW.

The Moxley Legacy
Brie: … yay?

The Moxley Legacy
I aged Heath up so the gap between him and his siblings wasn’t too big. Bless his little heart, he knows there’s a wrestling theme in this legacy, and ages up into a Chris Jericho shirt. However, no. I don’t have a Heath Slater shirt, so he’s getting a makeover.

The Moxley Legacy
I had forgotten that his uncle Tyson had the same hair, so I will probably change his hair for the next update.

The Moxley Legacy
Stardust is doing well at school…

The Moxley Legacy
… while Trish somehow isn’t. Even though they’ve attended the same school for the same amount of time and both turned in homework every day. WTF, game?

The Moxley Legacy
Yeah, I’m sure I totally won’t forget to buy a cake and organise a party.

The Moxley Legacy
Brie manages to avoid Sorin’s advances for long enough to prepare a meal for everyone. This is our new trick, the minute she and Sorin are alone, I have Brie serve a meal, which keeps him occupied for a few minutes, so Brie can do something productive with her time. Consequently, Sorin is going to get fat soon.

The Moxley Legacy
Be warned, Pogo Stick, Brie has cut bitches for spattering her with food.
Brie: She’s my niece and I love her. She’s my niece and I love her. She’s my niece and I love her.

The Moxley Legacy
Sorin: Hi there, Stardust! Mr Moo Cow has a very important message for you about recycling…

The Moxley Legacy
Sorin: … and also staying away from icky radiation.

The Moxley Legacy
Stardust: How utterly fascinating, father. Do tell me more of Mr Moo Cow’s philosophies.
It is my personal headcannon that Stardust sets the bar in sarcasm in this household. It doesn’t happen often, but every so often I catch her pulling faces when she’s speaking to her family.

The Moxley Legacy
Finally, all three kids are the same age, so they can interact with each other.

The Moxley Legacy
Stardust continues to win at life…

The Moxley Legacy
… while Trish…

The Moxley Legacy
… does the same!

The Moxley Legacy
It’s ok, sweetie, it was your first day.

The Moxley Legacy
This is one of Nikki’s kids, Lita. I played Nikki a bit longer than the final update, but haven’t managed to get back in since. Lita is evil. I don’t know what her personality is like, but look at her resting face. Her default expression is a sneer.

The Moxley Legacy
Lita is better than you. And she’ll probably tell you as much.
(Expect her name to get recycled at a later date.)

The Moxley Legacy
Twins: *in eerie unison* Dad, we got A+ report cards.
Sorin: I’M SO HAPPY I COULD STAB SOMETHING! 😀

The Moxley Legacy
Since the twins are aging up any minute now, I used their child commands to do their homework, since Brie is at work. Heath will just have to wait until she gets home.

The Moxley Legacy
Lita deigns to play cops and robbers with her cousin, but she does not look happy about it.

The Moxley Legacy
FUN. THIS IS IT.

The Moxley Legacy
The twins ignore their cousin, which is par for the course, and play catch together.

The Moxley Legacy
Chance cards hate me, so does it really matter?

The Moxley Legacy
… apparently it does.

The Moxley Legacy
And as the sun sets, the twins age up, which, obviously, I completely forgot was happening today.

The Moxley Legacy
Trish is definitely keeping her little goth girl outfit, I’m going to give her a makeover with all that dramatic eyeshadow I keep in my downloads folder but never use.

The Moxley Legacy
I have never seen that outfit before, I don’t know if I downloaded it or if it’s from an EP and I’ve never noticed, it’s just brand new to me. And it totally works with her pale skin, dark hair and elf ears.

The Moxley Legacy
This, not so much. Stardust, your clothes should not be the same shade as your skin, it makes you look drab.

The Moxley Legacy
Oh, my little goth rolled pleasure. It totally doesn’t fit, so I’m keeping it.

The Moxley Legacy
And my shy little alien rolled romance. Yeah, these two are going to have a fun time when they attempt their LTWs, aren’t they?

The Moxley Legacy

The Moxley Legacy
They spend the next hour or so congratulating each other on growing up well. The smugness is overwhelming.

The Moxley Legacy
Bwahahahaha! Trish hates her new look. Anything that provokes that look of disgust is worth keeping.

The Moxley Legacy
Doesn’t she rock this look? Also, she’s basically goth Brie, isn’t she?

The Moxley Legacy
Stardust did the teensiest, tiniest YAY reaction to her makeover. It was adorable.

The Moxley Legacy
Stardust also rocks her makeover. Though I’m sad she lost her alien eyes. Also, she reminds me of Nikki here. This is Nikki’s stoned serenity look.

The Moxley Legacy
Well, Brie just hit her LTW. This is not a massive achievement for me, because I’d played her a bit before she became the legacy heir, so she had a zillion skill points because I’d maxMotives a few times. Still, perma plat is a good thing.

The Moxley Legacy
This is the look of someone who has achieved her lifetime goal. Yes. There is joy. JOY, I TELL YOU!

The Moxley Legacy
Actually, that was the look of a woman whose husband has been playing in the bath for eight hours straight while she was at work because without Brie home there was nothing to bang.

The Moxley Legacy
I contemplated attempting Brie’s new LTW, but no. A world of no. I wish there was a hack to block this LWT (and the one about raising 20 puppies and kittens).

The Moxley Legacy
The kids wake up in eerie unison. Before their alarm went off. It was spooky.

The Moxley Legacy
Sorin, unable to bang his sleeping wife, came running in immediately. Because there’s nothing that anyone loves more than being hit by a wall of text from a bored parent the moment their eyes open.

The Moxley Legacy
Trish humours her dad, but Stardust is not a morning person.

The Moxley Legacy
I swear, evil thoughts are dancing through Stardust’s mind right now. I love her.
In other news, has she lost her eyes? Are they the eyes on the skin texture? They don’t look like my defaults. As I type this, I’ve just changed my alien default eyes to see if it makes a difference – I had a look in SimPE and she is supposed to have alien eyes. I probably screwed something up somewhere along the line.

The Moxley Legacy
Maybe I won’t replace the 2×2 table with one that doesn’t have a massive plant in the middle. Maybe I’ll just learn to angle the camera so Sorin is hidden.

The Moxley Legacy
Trish sits listlessly in front of the computer for hours. I think the goth exterior is slowly working on the rest of her.

The Moxley Legacy
Stardust paints yet another picture of Jon Moxley, which is lovely. I sold it for $1. She then had a bad reaction, so I assume she wanted to sell a masterpiece, which is a bit ambitious for someone who’s never done anything creative before.

The Moxley Legacy
Heath: Hey, mum, did you know I was a baby once?
Sorin the Creeper: Make it stop talking so I can bang Brie.

The Moxley Legacy
To thwart Sorin’s advances, I spied Tyson walking by and had Brie greet him.
Yeah. I now hate Sorin so much, I thought inviting Tyson into the house would be better.

The Moxley Legacy
Brie then has to peace out and head out to work. Wait.

The Moxley Legacy
What is this? Why is there skin tone on the clothing map? Seriously, EA. Why didn’t you alpha it? This is going to look stupid on anyone who is not the default skintone they used. Nice.

The Moxley Legacy
As per usual, the twins could not care less about anyone else in the world, and just play together. Which I can’t really fault, given that Brie’s been raising Heath, Heath’s been a toddler and a kid, and Sorin’s an idiot. If I was them, I’d only friend my twin too.

The Moxley Legacy
Speaking of, let’s cheat Heath’s age up a day early so he can catch up with the girls again.

The Moxley Legacy
He’s into blonde werewolves. I will have to make some werewolves, because I don’t think I’ve got any at the moment.

The Moxley Legacy

The Moxley Legacy
Thanks, Tyson. This is your niece, who you’re meeting for the first time, and this is how you go about it?

The Moxley Legacy
Trish doesn’t find it funny. Tyson is an asshat.

The Moxley Legacy
Trish cries so loudly that I decide, screw it, I will use her one teenage command now (because I usually never remember).

The Moxley Legacy
Ha! It’s significantly funnier when Tyson is the victim.

The Moxley Legacy

The Moxley Legacy
Tyson, you are a grown ass man. Did you seriously just shove a thirteen year old girl for pranking you with the joy buzzer you used on her seconds ago?
Tyson, you are an asshat.

The Moxley Legacy
Trish: He poked me!
I know. I saw. My fingers twitched towards InSim. It’s okay, Trish. I’ll be keeping an eye on him.

The Moxley Legacy
Tyson: She is dead to me! That evil bitch joy buzzered me. I will eat her soul.
Tyson, I have never liked you, but now I really hate you.

The Moxley Legacy
Tyson: Should I go back to being boring then?
Or you could just go.

The Moxley Legacy

The Moxley Legacy

The Moxley Legacy
Seriously, Tyson. You suck.

The Moxley Legacy
Trish gets over her angst and makes herself useful. If she wasn’t a clone of Brie, I’d really lean towards her being heir.

The Moxley Legacy
Brie: Hi, Ty. I hear you made my kid cry. You’re my brother, and I love you, but if you don’t leave right now, I’ll cut you. *hug*
You never really want to anger Brie. Her rage runs deep.

The Moxley Legacy
Stardust admires her sister, and wins my heart with her adorableness – both the fact that she did it when Trish was upset over Tyson being an ass, and the shy way she did it.

The Moxley Legacy
And then she did her teeny tiny YAY action when she was done. Just the cutest thing ever.

The Moxley Legacy
The kids are awesome. They just get along like a house on fire.

The Moxley Legacy
I randomised their gender preference on Sim Blender and they’re all straight.

The Moxley Legacy
It amazes me how many of this picture I have. None of the kids oversleep, they don’t forget to eat, is this generation ridiculously clever or what?

The Moxley Legacy
And they even skill autonomously.

The Moxley Legacy

The Moxley Legacy
And both twins qualify for a scholarship.
