Joint Boolprop Legacy: TS3 Version

Current Status: Generation Two in progress!

Hey all!

There's one of these going down in TS4 Land right now, but I missed the boat on sign-ups and am also a total blundering noob when it comes to TS4. So I was wondering if anyone would like to participate in a TS3 version!

Basically, each simmer is responsible for one generation of a regular Pinstar legacy. When the heir for the next generation ages up to YA, you upload the lot to the Exchange and the next person picks up where you left off. And ideally we would each document our generation somewhere, but it doesn't have to be fancy, just a few pictures and some words so we know what's going on. :)





Aaaand less than 24 hours later, we have more than enough sign-ups! You guys are the best!
Looks like this will be an 11-gen legacy, but I think we'll cap it there. This way if someone drops out down the road, it won't matter too much. Otherwise it just means our 10th-gen sim gets to have a real life. :heart:

ROTATION
Generation 1: Gryffindork (Full EP Collection)
Generation 2: somebodysangel(All EP's except Pets)
Generation 3: Emily Whalers (World Adventures, Late Night, Generations)
Generation 4: DreamWeaver (Full EP Collection)
Generation 5: Ani-Mei (All EP's except Pets)
Generation 6: Laserkatt (All EP's except Into the Future)
Generation 7: DSLady (Full EP Collection)
Generation 8: Bokavoy (Full EP Collection)
Generation 9: ZaleISBI (Full EP Collection)
Generation 10: itsjulie (Full EP Collection)

NOTE! I did some rearranging after somebodysangel got moved up to Gen. 2, so the order isn't totally set in stone anymore. For the next few generations at least, I'm assuming we'll figure things out as we go depending on who's around and has time to play. :)

Wait List:
1. vera
2. nicholaplaysthesims
3. FluffyMao
4. Voguishstorm
5. Echoweaver
6. Livvielove
7. Mpart

This order was determined by:
a) Requests for specific generations
b) The completeness of your EP collection
c) The order in which you signed up

If anyone is unhappy with their spot, please comment so I can move things around! :)


Stuff we have figured out so far!
Founder: Submissions were put to vote and the chosen one is Mr. Radax Maitland!
Heir Polls: Heir polls will occur every generation and will be open to the Boolpropian public.
Naming themes: Each participant is free to devise a theme for their assigned generation.
Time Limit: We'll see how things go, but in the interest of getting to everyone's turn before people lose interest/forget that they ever signed up, each simmer should try to complete their generation within 2 months or so. (However, so long as you keep us updated here, we're not going to randomly take your turn away from you.)
Publishing: We will be publishing the legacy on this collaborative WordPress blog! Everyone should have received an author invite by now - except for itsjulie, whose WordPress username I'm still waiting on. :)

Simselves!
Many agreed it would be fun to have our simselves floating around the various worlds this family will inhabit. Here's a list of participants' simselves you're free to poach from!
Ani-Mei [Hair]
DreamWeaver
DSLady (.sim)/(.sims3pack)
Emily Whalers
Gryffindork
somebodysangel
Echoweaver

If anyone has further suggestions, feel free to discuss!

That sounds awesome. What about generation 2 or 3 for me? :smiley:

Done! Glad to have you on board - I'll sign you up for Gen 2 for now. :D

I'd love to take part, but I'm concerned with how well my ancient EP setup will work with Sims from other games. :cover: I may need to change the heir's traits if I take part. For now I'll stick with a maybe and think about it.

Also, if you can't get ten people to take part, maybe each player can do more than one generation. If you get five players, everyone can do two each - either two generations in a row, or one generation and a later generation down the line.

EDIT: I now see that you suggested the exact same thing in the half of the post I didn't read. My bad. Blame it on my long days at work where I actually have to pay attention to detail or risk getting fired. :faint:

I would love to do this! I also missed the sign ups for the other signups.

Emily, that's a good point, but I bet we can find a workaround... Maybe once the spots fill up, everyone can let me know which EP's they have and I'll add that to the main post? That way we can all be conscious of which traits are actually viable as the potential heirs are growing up. :) I'll pencil you in for now - and don't worry, please save your attention to detail for when your job is at stake. :P

Bokavoy, awesome! I'll add you too!

Yay! Thank you. I was really bummed when I missed the signups for the original.

Thank YOU! I fully expected to get zero interest in a TS3 version of this, haha.

I'M IN! I actually love this idea, and I'm also just desperate to get involved in more stuff... XD

I'll take whichever Gen is left if people want to call specific ones, I really have no preference! :)

Yay!! You guys are all so great! :hugs:

I'll put everyone down in the order they signed up for now, but if people want to switch later, I'm sure we can accommodate that! :D

Well, usually I play Sims 2 I have just started with 3. Also I don't even remember my Exchange name or password but I have an idea of what it is. I would like to try generation 5, I have all EP's except Pets and no SP's at all for 3. Also no Store stuff due to having to install Sims 3 all over again on my desktop after my BRAND NEW Windows 8.1 laptop would not stay on before crashing. Hopefully my Sims 3 newbishness won't ruin whoever takes generation 6.

I SIGNED UP TO THE FORUMS LITERALLY JUST FOR THIS.

I'm in <3

I have all EPS except ITF, missing some stuff packs but I suspect they don't matter.



:shifty: <-- so happy this is still here

No worries, it's all in good fun anyway, and I'm sure we'll figure out the Exchange thing when the time comes. :thup: I'll put you down for Gen. 5!

Nevermind, I remembered my name and my password. Took some window hopping in the launcher since trying to log in from the actual web page gave me a blank pop box with only the X to close it in it. I also got my Store content back, I have three worlds Riverview, Dragon Valley and Hidden Springs back in the menu again. Good thing it sticks around on your page after you bought it.

Thanks for signing me up and writing down my EPs, Gryffindork! :drinks: It seems like I'm the only one without everything or most EPs. If it's easier for everyone involved, I can take an earlier generation so that traits and LTWs aren't an issue down the line. I'm down for Gen. 3 now, and that's good for me! At some point I do plan on getting all the EPs, but my laptop will probably explode if I try to install them.

I'm in! I have all EPs, but my laptop doesn't play well with Pets, so would prefer a non-pet household. Like a bunch of the others, I've been saddened by the emptiness of the TS3 sections of the forum lately, so hopefully this gives us some more activity in here.

Nine people have signed up, hooray! I can't wait for this to start!

Oh, I don't have pets! I have everything else though. Maybe try sorting people in order of least expansions to most, that way the traits can still be rolled for as more and more EPs build up further down the line... If that makes sense!?
