Lightning Legacy *dead, again*

When Sims 4 was released, I started a legacy to explore the game. It died in the 3rd generation and has been dormant for just over two years. On a whim, I loaded the save recently and realized I could save the legacy within the rules, so here we are.

**********************************************************
Here is my very first Sims 4 legacy attempt, without rules as they have not been published yet. I am basically playing with the goal of 10 generations and no cheating.

Pinstar has posted the rules for Sims 4 legacy and for the most part I have played within his published rules. Under the spoiler are the rules that I will be playing within. The only ones listed below are the ones that are not part of the standard basic rules, and either are an allowed choice or where I am playing outside of the published rules.

Spoiler:
Succession Law
Gender Law: Equality: The Founder may be of either gender. Both boys and girls are eligible for the title of heir.
Bloodline Law: Traditional: Children who are naturally born from the previous generation are eligible to be named heir. Adopted children are ineligible to be named heir unless there are no naturally born children, at which point they become eligible for that generation.
Heir Law: Genetic: Children will inherit based upon genetics in the following order: Green skin or normal skin + Female over male + Youngest over older + Occult over non-occult
Species Law: Tolerant: Children of any species are eligible to become heirs

Spouses
Spouses will be chosen from the Boolprop simselves / Boolprop created sims from the gallery. The most current gender appropriate sim will be chosen at random and without regard to traits. from the game. There are enough to choose from with the expansion packs out now and if the selection dies off, #legacyloves will be added to the town.

Children
All traits will be rolled starting from the time the rules were published (generation 3 is already born, so it will be effective with generation 4)

Scoring
The legacy will not be scored for points, other than generation completion points and household net worth at the end of the legacy.


Generation 1, Cricket
Chapter 1
Chapter 2
Chapter 3

Generation 2, Theo
Chapter 4
Chapter 5
Chapter 6
Chapter 7
Chapter 8
Chapter 9
Chapter 10
Chapter 11
Chapter 12
Chapter 13
Chapter 14

Generation 3, Kelly
Chapter 15

The family tree will be maintained using The PlumTree App: Family Tree

I came so close to blowing the legacy.
Spoiler:
I did move them from the prebuilt house to an empty lot but I really wanted to use freerealestate to get them into a larger house. I was good though, still haven't cheated.
;)

Yay!!!
Spoiler:
Theo's hair is so great :o
"Which of course means more strenuous activity is required." HAH
"Apparently there won’t be the queue stomp to witness death as the kids continue playing their games while Grim collects Cricket." :eek: That's... alarming :eek:

Yay this is great! Everyone is beautiful!

So fun to see the new game highlighted! Theo has red hair! Was that natural, or did you dye it? Where did it come from?? :shifty:

Oh no, poor Cricket! D: Well, good luck, Tasha; looks like you just defaulted to house mother!

I'm really looking forward to seeing more updates here!

I am about to get back in the game - had to work through the school shi...assignments, now to breakfast and clothes (put in contacts so I can see). I will have another update some time today.

Spoiler:
Having no adults is interesting - there is no repair service and no income - they can't afford to pay the bills and replace the broken stuff - and they can't take the chance on repairing the electrical stuff yet :thup:

Theo and Tabby were both born with that color. No idea where it came from so not quite sure how the genetics are working. Also because there isn't an adult, and because changing appearance takes the entire family back into CAS (not just the one you are trying to change) I can't change anything as there has to be an adult and CAS won't let me save without adding an adult. blah blah blah :lol:

Spoiler:
haha, just finished reading both chapters, and wow, I want to play too! :bounce:

But really? Death of exhaustion? How awful is that. If that's true, then I'll be dead ten times over by now. LOL. it's till funny though.

I can't believe our founder didn't live through elder hood (game seems fatal much :hmm: ) as this is the first I see that happens.
