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.
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.
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.
And just to recap, this is the adorable Brie. Cutter of bitches and newest Legacy Heir.
Brie and Sorin have twin girls, Trish…
… and Stardust.
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.
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.
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.
I have no idea how watching something that looks like the apocalypse garners athletic enthusiasm, but I’ll take it.
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.
So, even though it’s not strictly ISBI, I’m going to try for Sorin’s LTW instead.
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.
There’s always one, isn’t there?
Of course, Trish is just opting not to sleep, which is also awesome.
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.
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.
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.
This is a new problem that my computer has – each trimester produces nudity.
Remember that I hate Sorin? This picture just ups the creepiness factor.
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.
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.
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.
Sorin has confusion.
Write what you know, Brie.
That seems rather high, but she does have high creativity for her job.
Since nothing is happening, it seems a good time to invite the headmaster over.
This kids head off to regular school.
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.
We have a boy, named Heath.
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.)
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.
However, his interests are in direct contrast to Brie’s, and every interaction she tries decreases the overall score.
Eventually, I have her perform the school cheer. Nine times.
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.
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.
Finally he does something that doesn’t make me want to kill him with fire.
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.
Bless, he’s cute
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.
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.
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.
Seeing the kids and toddlers hug the toy always melts my heart.
Nooooo! Heath must catch up with them! I can’t deal with them being different ages.
I set Brie novel writing again. And, once more, Brie writes what she knows.
That makes one of us. I’m not quite such a fan after dealing with Sorin.
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.
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.
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.
I had forgotten that his uncle Tyson had the same hair, so I will probably change his hair for the next update.
Stardust is doing well at school…
… 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?
Yeah, I’m sure I totally won’t forget to buy a cake and organise a party.
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.
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.
Sorin: Hi there, Stardust! Mr Moo Cow has a very important message for you about recycling…
Sorin:… and also staying away from icky radiation.
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.
Finally, all three kids are the same age, so they can interact with each other.
Stardust continues to win at life…
… while Trish…
… does the same!
It’s ok, sweetie, it was your first day.
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.
Lita is better than you. And she’ll probably tell you as much.
(Expect her name to get recycled at a later date.)
Twins: *in eerie unison* Dad, we got A+ report cards.
Sorin: I’M SO HAPPY I COULD STAB SOMETHING! 😀
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.
Lita deigns to play cops and robbers with her cousin, but she does not look happy about it.
FUN. THIS IS IT.
The twins ignore their cousin, which is par for the course, and play catch together.
Chance cards hate me, so does it really matter?
… apparently it does.
And as the sun sets, the twins age up, which, obviously, I completely forgot was happening today.
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.
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.
This, not so much. Stardust, your clothes should not be the same shade as your skin, it makes you look drab.
Oh, my little goth rolled pleasure. It totally doesn’t fit, so I’m keeping it.
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?
They spend the next hour or so congratulating each other on growing up well. The smugness is overwhelming.
Bwahahahaha! Trish hates her new look. Anything that provokes that look of disgust is worth keeping.
Doesn’t she rock this look? Also, she’s basically goth Brie, isn’t she?
Stardust did the teensiest, tiniest YAY reaction to her makeover. It was adorable.
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.
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.
This is the look of someone who has achieved her lifetime goal. Yes. There is joy. JOY, I TELL YOU!
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.
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 kids wake up in eerie unison. Before their alarm went off. It was spooky.
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.
Trish humours her dad, but Stardust is not a morning person.
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.
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.
Trish sits listlessly in front of the computer for hours. I think the goth exterior is slowly working on the rest of her.
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.
Heath: Hey, mum, did you know I was a baby once?
Sorin the Creeper: Make it stop talking so I can bang Brie.
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.
Brie then has to peace out and head out to work. Wait.
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.
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.
Speaking of, let’s cheat Heath’s age up a day early so he can catch up with the girls again.
He’s into blonde werewolves. I will have to make some werewolves, because I don’t think I’ve got any at the moment.
Thanks, Tyson. This is your niece, who you’re meeting for the first time, and this is how you go about it?
Trish doesn’t find it funny. Tyson is an asshat.
Trish cries so loudly that I decide, screw it, I will use her one teenage command now (because I usually never remember).
Ha! It’s significantly funnier when Tyson is the victim.
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.
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.
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.
Tyson: Should I go back to being boring then?
Or you could just go.
Seriously, Tyson. You suck.
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.
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.
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.
And then she did her teeny tiny YAY action when she was done. Just the cutest thing ever.
The kids are awesome. They just get along like a house on fire.
I randomised their gender preference on Sim Blender and they’re all straight.
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?
And they even skill autonomously.
And both twins qualify for a scholarship.
