Finally managed to sit down and catch up on this awesome story! I was ecstatic to see that there were four updates waiting to be read lol. I loved seeing how Avenir was faring on his own, too. It was a nice break from the everything that's happening in the main household. I really like the blue skin-blonde hair combo going on with the kids, by the way. Can't wait for more Gardenia shenanigans! :D

Hooray for a new update! Congrats on completing another generation! I really like how you write out your Sims characters by the way, I was chuckling the whole update. I like the teen hangout you built as well (I always found it strange that barely any teens show up on community lots during the day, tbh. I wonder if it's because the game considers them to be in school. Speaking of younger Sims, I don't think I've ever seen kids show up on community lots either. Awww rest in peace, Michelle. You and Pierce will be missed! Also I like the elder outfits for Eric and Ai. They suit them perfectly imo. Oh dear, looks like all the girls want a piece of Balakay haha. So excited to see what the triplets will get up to at college, and I'm looking forward to Borealis' reign once he graduates. :D

Great update as usual, @CalamityJade! I can't wait for the next installment. Also, I added you on LJ! It's always nice to have Sims buddies on there since the site is basically dead lol. :lol:

This is a super fun legacy!

Spoiler:
I like the idea that Rod Humble is secretly evil and trying to cause chaos via delivering PCs with viruses lol. I will think that every time I see him in game now.

I'm obsessed with Ai's genetics, she's so pretty! (and sassy). Plus Alcatraz really grew into her face.

Aww, I love the name Bianca, and a new custom skin?! :heartbeat: I really like the outfits and hair you choose for your playables. Your style generally is great! Barbara's dress is awesome, Ai's elder dress :heart: gorgeous!

I'm really looking forward to Borealis' time to shine as heir!


Can't wait for more, Jade!

Thanks so much for the comments, guys! :slaphappy:

Yeah, the teens don't show up when I want to set up a teen outing, but when I have a founder searching for a spouse, the teens all decide to come out. :D. And I don't think kids can show up on community lots unless you have a playable kid, unless there is a mod for that? Probably.

Yes, Michelle will be missed. But she lived a really long life for someone who didn't get permaplat until elderhood, so no complaints there.

And I added you back, awesome! Haha, there's still quite a few simmers on there I think.


Vooogerbits:

Thank you, I'm glad you're liking it! I do try to give each of my sims a unique personality, and most of the time, they do a good job of conveying what they want(the college update so far is proof of that).

I think most of my elder dresses came from MTS/All About Style in particular. Really nice to have elder ladies looking sophisticated and less saggy.

And yes, update coming soon!

Yeah, I've met some awesome people on there! It's a shame the site is pretty inactive overall, though. I planning on switching to either Blogger or Wordpress once I start Simming again, although I'm still not sure which one to pick. :hmm:

Also, regarding the children and teen townies showing up on community lots: I know that twojeff's Visitor Controller allows you to ban certain Sims from lots based on many factors (one of which is age), so that could be a solution. I also found a mod that specifically allows children and teen townies to spawn on community lots, however it conflicts with the Visitor Controller. So I guess you could use one or the other, and not both together. :shrug:

As for the new update, I absolutely loved it! I left my comments in the spoiler below. :P
Spoiler:
When Ai brought a kid with her to visit Blake I nearly spat out my drink lol. Also, it's nice to know I'm not the only one that likes to wait and see what majors my Sims roll wants for. :)

Yeesh, what is up with Barbara and her random animosity towards that blonde dormie? Poor girl literally didn't do anything to her! And oh man, ACR is making things really dramatic (in a funny way) between the Gardenia kids. Mary was smart to leave as soon as that date started. :haha:

Yay for everyone getting into the Greek House. Now Al can finally graduate and leave college, haha. She probably has a lot of catching up to do with friends and family back home. :tongue:

Great update as usual, @CalamityJade! I can't wait for the next one! :D

@nooboostar

Spoiler:
That looks like a cool mod, shame it doesn't work with VC. I tried to use Visitor Controller to only allow teens but that time I only got those two teens. Maybe I'll take it out to try the other mod one of those days, I think I just use the VC to ban evil witches off businesses.

Yeah I think it gives sims some more personality when I see what they want to major. Borealis' choice felt the most random, but the others made sense regarding their wants.

My guess is that those two had a few bad conversations or someone rejected an Admire, that always tanks the relationship score when you first meet someone. But it wouldn't surprise me if Barbara just waltzed up to her and started arguing. Not complaining though, mean sims are fun. Most of the time. xD

Yes, it's about time for Al to graduate. Luckily I already have someone to take her place in placeholding.


@MommyIzz

Spoiler:
Thanks for reading! Pierce and his early days was certainly a fun time. I kind of have a soft spot for the founder lawn-living days.
