Not That Much Longer Until TS4 Now!

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! =)

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?

"I’ve been thinking it over and I’ve decided that if you really want to move that badly, then we should."

"What about your family? I thought they were the reason you were against it."

"Well, my sister cursed every single person in existence and it seems as though she’s going to keep bugging me about joining the night until the day I die. I think it’s time to leave."

This is the last post of the Pain family in The Sims 3! Thank you so much to everyone that’s been following my legacy. I look forward to seeing you over at Sugary Virtual Simblr, where the story will continue in The Sims 4!


"The town was covered in a heavy fog for several days afterward. None of the city&#8217;s human scientists could figure out its origin. Thankfully, my magical father who worked at a science lab was eventually able to figure it out. As soon as he saw the test results, he knew exactly what had happened.
Everyone in the entire world was cursed so that they&#8217;d be stuck at the same age until they had completed their lifetime goal. I guess Molly figured that Lydia was so bad at writing that she&#8217;d never be able to figure out how to accomplish her goal of becoming an illustrious author. Honestly, Lydia isn&#8217;t the best story teller, so I am terrified that Molly has finally found a way to ensure that her sister will live forever&#8230;just like she always wanted.&#8221;

The Final Day of TS3 Pain Family!

Today’s theme for my Sims 3 chat is the bad parts of TS3!

As much as I love The Sims 3, there have been so many times that I felt like just quitting the game completely. I have never experienced the loss of entire families like some people have, but I have had the game crash on me after not saving for several hours. Ugh!

Some of the bugs in the game can be pretty hilarious, but others…not so much. The bugs that have bothered me the most are the period of time when sims couldn’t get married because EA had patched game code that required an upcoming expansion, the times when children couldn’t age up without being moved to a different lot, or the times that legacy family members haven’t been able to have kids for one reason or another, despite the “baby jiggle” playing.
