Question about Vampires

Question about Vampires

Postby Hrootbeer » March 18th, 2020, 3:55 pm

Ok, I have a legitimate question about Vampires. If you were writing a vampire who existed in the Sims universe from Sims 2 to Sims 4 (assuming that the universe was lateral and sequential despite the timeline that EA says it follows which puts Sims 4 in an alternate universe) how many total years would you say has passed?

Think about this in game time and a vampire who does not age or die (even though they can in Sims 3 and 4). It might even help to think of this from a legacy perspective if said vampire experienced an entire family legacy for each iteration of the game.

How many years would pass?

I consider each generation to be about 20-25 years. So a 10-generation legacy would be 200-250 years. If you are looking at them sequentially - Sims 2 legacy 225 years + Sims 3 legacy 225 years + Sims 4 legacy 225 years = 675 years from the start of the legacy in Sims 2 to the end of the legacy in Sims 4.

Thank you. That's what I was thinking too give or take.

So if a born vampire made it through 8 legacy generations that would be roughly 160 years, if I follow this math logic.
