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.
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.
I’ve used SimPE to find out all the other stuff.
+Underwear +Makeup / -Black Hair
And at that point I went, “Oh yeah. I haven’t spawned any fucking townies.” Fail #2
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?
Yellow Shirt Chick: You’re choosing me?
Mickie: Sure. Sure, I’m choosing you.
Desperate Guy copping a feel of Mickie: I’ll have babies with you!
Me and Mickie: Too late, we like the yellow shirt chick.
But why am I not hearing a jingle? Get pregnant now! *twitches*
Fail #3: Oh yeah, the ability to wear everyday when pregnancy was a hack. FFS. I wonder…
Also, Harriet is just thrilled to be pregnant.
Both adults are pregnant.
Time for a FMSL moment – see text 2 from Wing (my BFF) in the exchange below.
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:
Well, it’s an improvement on her last reaction to a pop.
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.
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?
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.
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:
+Fatness +Swimwear / -Logical
She likes fatness and her wife’s LTW is ballet. Truly a match made in heaven.
