I may be done with The Sims 3, but I still have more subjects to discuss! Today’s chat is all about plans in The Sims 4. I wrote a little bit about this over at Sugary Virtual Simblr, but I want to go more in-depth now that I’ve learned so much more about the game!
The very first thing I wanted to do in The Sims 4 was create the last heir of the Pain legacy. Due to the release of the Sims 4 Create A Sim demo, I’ve already checked that off of my list! Fawn Pain is ready to go. She just needs a game to be placed in! =)
She’s missing her purple eyes, but here’s Fawn’s overall final look for The Sims 4!
One change I’m going to be making to the legacy when it hops over to the new game will be the family name. I’m ready for the Pain legacy to be under a different name, so I think the family is going to take Fawn’s girlfriend’s last name - Grey. I like the sound of “The Grey Legacy”, although I’m hoping the legacy is going to be full of so much colour that it won’t be grey at all!
I suppose the next step for me then would be to move Fawn and her girlfriend Lydia into a small starter house. I know that the original creator of the Legacy Challenge is going to be modifying the rules of the challenge to be better suited for The Sims 4, but I’d rather just try and pick up my legacy right where I left off. Fawn’s family home is a really big mansion right now, but she’s moving to a new place to start her own family. I’ve decided that she won’t be taking very much of the family fortune with her. Therefore, she’s not going to be as poor as a typical legacy founder, but she isn’t going to be living with very much spare cash on hand either.
Once Fawn’s starter home is picked out, my next goal will be to earn enough money for an inspiration room. I have been reading about how objects have auras that can be turned on or off. When turned on, the objects will omit an emotional aura and will cause sims in the same room to feel a certain way. Sims can view objects and it will have the same effect if auras are turned off, but I really like the idea of Fawn entering her painting studio feeling inspired to paint a masterpiece based on the items around her. <3
There are other things I will be changing once the legacy makes its way over to Sugary Virtual Simblr. I want to play the worlds much like I’d play one in The Sims 2. This means that while the main focus will be the Pain/Grey family legacy, other families will be showcased as well. In the past, I have only ever shared non-legacy family updates on the weekends, but I think I’m going to take a week off here and there from the Pain/Grey family and post new stuff. This will help keep my blog fresh, new, and fun!
What are your plans for The Sims 4?
