The Vortekz Legacy

The Vortekz Legacy: Gen 1.1

Welcome to my new TS3 ISBI legacy. Now that I can get it to run on my computer, I’m going to alternate between TS3 and TS2.

What’s with the surname? Well, I’m not being l33t, it’s in the same theme as the Moxleys. Wrestling. I borrowed Scotty Vortekz’s surname. Let’s hope he doesn’t mind. Wrestlers have the best surnames. I’m saving the wrestling first names for the Moxleys, so my first torchholder has a first name that begins with A, her kids will have B names, etc. And yes, I’m going to recycle Ava, because it’s such a pretty name.

I have all the EPs except Late Night and Island Paradise, and no stuff packs. I’ve barely played TS3 at all, so everything is new and exciting to me, and I will squee long and hard about it. So if you’re a jaded veteran of TS3, my silly exclamations may not be what you’re looking for.

My lifespan lengths are:

  • Baby: 2 days
  • Toddler: 2 days
  • Child: 7 days
  • Teen: 12 days
  • YA: 21 days
  • Adult: 21 days
  • Elder: 7 days

My torch holder is called Ava, she’s a dramatic, eccentric, irresistible kleptomaniac who loves cats. Her LTW is to reach the top of the criminal career. I considered the other theft one, but remembered that I don’t know how to play this game, we’re gen 1 and broke, and we need to find a spouse, so maybe leave the harder LTWs for later, once I’ve got the hang of it.

Warnings: Swearing, CAPSLOCK OF RAGE (AND OTHER EMOTIONS), incoherrent rambling, and annoying references to wrestling.

The Vortekz Legacy

Well, the point is to experience everything of TS3, so sure. LET’S DO THIS THING!

The Vortekz Legacy

Ava: Look at the pretty butterfly! I love it.

Yeah, this was not what I pictured when they said bugs. Do you have to catch them? Well, I suppose if the challenge demands it. Sorry, butterflies.

The Vortekz Legacy

Ava: I feel better about killing roaches!

Kill them quick! They’re like the animals in Gone by Michael Grant. Stomp the bastards before they eat you!

The Vortekz Legacy

Did someone put a fucking vortex in my front yard?

The Vortekz Legacy

Whatever you’re doing, llama, stop it now.

The Vortekz Legacy

Llama Dude: Not my fault. I’m from University, the portal is from Into the Future.

Oh. Right. Well, I’ll investigate that later, when Ava’s not killing bugs the size of her feet.

The Vortekz Legacy

A scientist showed up, supposedly to collect the bugs, but I couldn’t interact with her except “greet”, which I did about nine times in the hopes it would unlock other interactions. It did not. So I moved on to the other visitors. That cat is Ava’s and she’s called Sprite, and the long-haired dude is called Shawnee Fox, and the guy to his right is Calvin… something.

The Vortekz Legacy

I tried to get a cute pic of Sprite, but she was too wriggly. She is called Sprite after a character wrote about a zillion years ago. Her colouring was chosen because of her name.

The Vortekz Legacy

The house came with this picture. It’s perfect for her.

The Vortekz Legacy

While we’re at it, this is Ava’s house. I hope my first purchase of property is as good as hers. She has a nice sized house, loads of land and a lake. Ok, it might just be a really big pond, but whatever. Lake sounds better.

The Vortekz Legacy

So… might have accidentally left in my cheat which reduces the cost of those bonus things. I tried to be good for all of three seconds, before buying “perceptive” at the bargain rate. Shawnee looks like perfect spouse material.

The Vortekz Legacy

But Calvin would also make a good spouse too.

The Vortekz Legacy

Brilliant, thanks for showing up. This was totally worth it. And no, we didn’t get any money for it. Ava still had the butterflies in her inventory, so I had her set them free. I was sure I capped it, but apparently not.

The Vortekz Legacy

After everyone leaves, I have Ava call up Shawnee. He was single when she met him, but this game moves at the speed of light, so we need to snag that man as fast as we can, so a nice chat will boost their friendship.

The Vortekz Legacy

Then it’s grooming time for Sprite, who is a neat and playful hunter, so loves a good grooming.

The Vortekz Legacy

The Vortekz Legacy

I had about a zillion pics of Sprite sleeping, because she’s so cute.

The Vortekz Legacy

Ava reaches not for the wolf book, but for the Twilight ripoff.

The Vortekz Legacy

Awww, she drinks from the pond. That’s so cute.

The Vortekz Legacy

My cats are too old and jaded to play with a laser pointer. This warms the cockles of my black black heart.

The Vortekz Legacy

The next day, Ava sets out to work. Pants, Ava. Pants. You forgot them.

… or the criminal career got a lot darker between TS2 and TS3?

The Vortekz Legacy

Oh god, this is where you work? Sweetie, what did you sign up for?

The Vortekz Legacy

You’re going in there? With no pants? Really?

The Vortekz Legacy

Only satanists use umbrellas in the blazing sunshine, Calvin. I learned that from Ghost World.

The Vortekz Legacy

Oh god, shortest legacy ever…?

The Vortekz Legacy

Never. Tell. Me.

The Vortekz Legacy

Ava came home massively stressed, and wanted to karaoke the stress away. Unfortunately she was too tired to do anything other than sleep.

The Vortekz Legacy

When did you have time to do that? At work? I don’t think you’re supposed to steal from an organised crime ring. Not when they have a cave system where they can dispose of bodies.

The Vortekz Legacy

I have never seen this moodlet when a sim is not pregnant. I guess Ava’s finding a life of crime to be incredibly stressful. Or she’s just realised how daft it is to steal (what I later found out to be) a set of steak knives from the mafia boss.

The Vortekz Legacy

By the way, while I may be clueless about most things TS3, I know enough to make my founder’s favourite food entry level, so she can be delighted every time she makes it.

The Vortekz Legacy

Hey there, random tacked up horse. Did you throw your rider? I wanted Ava to steal the horse, but no interactions were available other than pet, and she was too busy eating before she passed out.

The Vortekz Legacy

Who cares, we have the cutest pet ever anyway.

The Vortekz Legacy

Sprite: BEHOLD MY WOLVERINE CLAWS!

The Vortekz Legacy

Real life? Not allowed. In game? CUTEST. THING. EVAH.

The Vortekz Legacy

And this continues to be adorable too.

The Vortekz Legacy

Winning at life. She also got promoted. Just goes to show: put in the effort, don’t be late, and show your girl parts to the boss without flinching and it all gets rewarded.

The Vortekz Legacy

Woman, you have nerves of steel to go riding barefoot. My pony was my BFF when I was 12, but I wouldn’t have trusted her not to squish my little toesies by mistake. Also, your horse is beautiful. Can kleptos steal horses…?

The Vortekz Legacy

No, we’re not starting a riding stable. We’re in breed mode. Right, let’s go grab Shawnee before he finds someone else.

(Hey, Carla. Breed mode. Like Brie Mode, only with a D. Heh. And isn’t Brie in Breed Mode at the moment? – sorry, wrestling reference. You can ignore them.)

The Vortekz Legacy

YOU WILL BE OURS! AVA WILL BE PREGNANT BEFORE THE NIGHT IS THROUGH!

The Vortekz Legacy

Oh. Cool.

The Vortekz Legacy

Well, he turned up. That’s a good start.

The Vortekz Legacy

Ava: So, I’m glad you made it, it’s really nice to – did a big white horse just gallop past me?

Shawnee: Yeah. That happens here. Just roll with it.

The Vortekz Legacy

Suddenly: Zombies.

Also, Shawnee hates every topic that Ava proposes. He finds it boring. Even gardening. HE HAS THE GREEN THUMB TRAIT.

The Vortekz Legacy

Last ditch effort.

The Vortekz Legacy

Shawnee: Yuck! Don’t you float your little heart shaped kisses over to me, you boring piece of trash. I HATE YOU.

The Vortekz Legacy

You know what, Shawnee? Go fuck yourself. I hate you. You’re not good enough for Ava. You heard me. She’s AWESOME. And you are not hot enough to have the surname Fox. Yeah. Have that you wank puffin.

The Vortekz Legacy

IT WAS ALL HIS FAULT.

The Vortekz Legacy

WHY HAVE YOU ROLLED THE WANT TO HAVE A DATE WITH HIM? HE IS HORRIBLE AND SNOOTY AND BORING AND IF THAT’S YOUR TYPE I’LL ROLL UP A NEW FOUNDER RIGHT HERE AND NOW.

The Vortekz Legacy

Let’s try and salvage the night. Ava, steal that horse.

The Vortekz Legacy

NO! Just steal the damned horse.

The Vortekz Legacy

Brilliant. Several hours of neglect have really paid off when it comes to training.

The Vortekz Legacy

Ava then has a queue of people wanting to talk to her. None of them are single.

The Vortekz Legacy

She strikes up a great conversation with Hailey Shepherd. It’s going so well that I enabled same sex pregnancy between two females.

The Vortekz Legacy

THEN WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU DOING DATING AVA TWO SECONDS BEFORE YOUR WIFE GAVE BIRTH? GO TO HELL YOU SKEEVY BLIGHTER.

The Vortekz Legacy

YES! THERE IS! MARRY AVA NOW!

Hailey then arched her back and rubbed her belly. Pregnant. Awesome.

The Vortekz Legacy

Well, Ava’s on a spouse hunt, so sorry Hailey, you seem really nice, but we have to move on.

Ava rolled the want to social network, and I thought her angst might make a nice blog post.

The Vortekz Legacy

Subtle, isn’t it?

The Vortekz Legacy

Right, who else can we flirt with? Ah, anyone with a phone. Get on that, Ava.

The Vortekz Legacy

That’s a thing? Match.com it is.

The Vortekz Legacy

This is how not picky we are. Literally all we care about is that the person is the same age.

The Vortekz Legacy

It finds us someone called Raymond Huston, and Ava and I are so delighted, we text him as he’s on his way to us.

The Vortekz Legacy

Raymond: Your text is so awesome I must thrust my phone through your torso!

Ava:… uh, thanks?

The Vortekz Legacy

*perks up* TELL ME MOAR.

In quick succession I learn that Raymond is family oriented, athletic, and most importantly…

The Vortekz Legacy

The Vortekz Legacy

Ava: You’re the one.

Raymond: What?

Ava: I’ve got a loud screetchy voice in my head screaming “MARRY HIM NOW, AVA! HE’S PERFECT!”

Raymond: Oh, how lovely.

The Vortekz Legacy

I have Ava try blowing him a kiss, and despite the terror in his eyes in this cap, he’s completely besotted with her. Guess he wasn’t expecting her to look as good as her profile on match.com.

The Vortekz Legacy

Yes, Ava. Let’s do that.

The Vortekz Legacy

How could you turn that down?

Tiredness. Tiredness is apparently why you turn down a date with Ava. Well, I’m not giving up on him. He’s perfect.

The Vortekz Legacy

Ava goes in for a kiss and gets one.

The Vortekz Legacy

Because they’re both dramatic, they cry over their first kiss. It’s adorable.

The Vortekz Legacy

The Vortekz Legacy

Suddenly: MOAR ZOMBIES. I hope Sprite’s ok and they haven’t eaten her or anything.

The Vortekz Legacy

This zombie is not a fan of the PDA.

The Vortekz Legacy

Ava: So, it’s getting a bit Zombieland around here. Wanna go back to mine.

Raymond: Eh? Ok then.

The Vortekz Legacy

Ava: And since you’re here, and there’s all those zombies out there, would you like to stay over? You know, just so you don’t get your brains eaten. Not because I’m on a mission here.

The Vortekz Legacy

Yes, game. They’ll be watching The Breakfast Club and painting each other’s nails. Absolutely.

The Vortekz Legacy

Oh, that’s cute.

The Vortekz Legacy

SHOWER WOO-HOO TIME.

The Vortekz Legacy

If the shower’s a-rockin’…

The Vortekz Legacy

Ava: Honey, um, are you awake…?

Raymond: zzzzz

The Vortekz Legacy

Raymond wakes up, and I hit “try for baby”. Because this game will have him married and fathering kids unless I can lock him down. And I’m happy to trap him with kids to keep him.

The Vortekz Legacy

Awww, they’re so cute.
