The Gardenia Legacy-updated 4/11

Postby Calamity Jade » April 1st, 2021, 3:04 pm

Hey simmers! After being inactive for some time, I've decided to start fresh with a brand new legacy(containing some handicaps, more on that in the blog). Something relaxing to play in my free time. So without further ado:

Founding Generation - Pierce Gardenia

Chapter 0.1 - Redheads, Everywhere

Chapter 0.2 - Who Needs a House, Anyway?

Chapter 0.3 - An 'Interesting' Bunch

Chapter 0.4 - Growing, Moving Up Part One Part Two

Hope you enjoy! ^^

Thanks for commenting, Peachy!

Very hard indeed. Zodiacs and aspirations play a major role in attraction. Good to know about Natasha, I'm really not familiar with the Desiderata residents. ^^

Just discovered this, and I absolutely love it so far! I really enjoy your sense of humor, too! The A babies are super cute, and I can't wait to see them all grown up and doing their own thing. ^^

Ai's custom skin really came out of nowhere. ^^ But that's what makes the game fun. Thank you for the comment!

Yeah, I was wondering how Ai got the pink hair and pale skin to be honest. Sims 2 genetics are so funny and interesting, I swear! :P

The latest chapter was a fun read, and I like the kids' makeovers a lot (probably because I enjoy giving my Sims makeovers myself lol)! Also, I was not expecting Avenir to get abducted however I think having an alien baby would make things very interesting at the legacy house (if there is an alien pregnancy mod exists for teens, that is). :lol:

Awww, welcome to the fam-bam little Al! I can't wait to see what she brings to the Gardenia house. :D

Spoiler:
I'm guessing that since some of my custom skins are geneticized, that means they are in the townie genepool. :slaphappy: Definitely makes for some fun randomness.

There's no teen alien pregnancy mod in my game, though I wouldn't be surprised if one were out there. But at least now, if I ever wanted an alien baby from Avenir, he can get pregnant from the dance sphere later in life.

Me too. :D So happy they are not all clones.

Oh okay, makes sense then. It's really cool that your custom genetics are in the townie pool, by the way, because it adds more diversity in the neighborhood! Also, I didn't know that could happen with the dance sphere! I definitely need to look into that for... reasons... :evil:

Now for my comments on Chapter 4! :)

Part 1
Spoiler:
I noticed that the kids tend to grow into their features in TS2, so I guess that's why Al doesn't look too bad now. Also, omg I so agree with you on Ai looking like Hayley Williams after the makeover! I love it! :slaphappy:

Congrats to Pierce for achieving his LTW in time, by the way, and I also want to say that the house is coming along nicely. The way you ended Part 1 had me rolling, though! I love me a good ol' TS2 glitch. :lol:


Part 2
Spoiler:
No, your eyes do not deceive you, Al actually turned out gorgeous! I love her features the most out of all the kids, to be honest! :hearts:

Michelle can rock that ponytail at any age, in my opinion! It suits her elder dress, too! She has a very classy and stylish aesthetic. Also, yay for Avenir finally scoring in the romance department (even if it was just a fling lol). I'm looking forward to his antics at college. :haha:


Can't wait for the next installment! I'm loving the Gardenia family's adventures so far! Now it's time to cast my vote in the heir poll! :D

It's great, because I get townies with different custom eyes. Haven't had one with that skin type appear, though. And yes, Dance Sphere is really good for getting an easy alien baby. xD

Spoiler:
I do like how each of the kids turned out unique. Kids CAN grow into features, and I've also had kids who were cute as toddlers then their faces exploded into adulthood :slaphappy: So it works either way.

I'm probably going to have to redo the house anyway for an extra bedroom once the heir returns from college. Just need a bit more money.

I'm glad you think so! I like when sims have 'exaggerated' features but still look good. Unfortunately a lot of maxis townies don't do a good job of that, xD

Her dress is great too, I have tons of elder dresses like that, because I hate how the default outfits make the elders look older than they already are.


Thanks so much for commenting, and for voting! :heartbeat:
