Heavenly Stars, Completed 9/30/09

I have started a new Sims 3 legacy with the hope that this one will hold my attention for longer than 2 generations. So far so good. I am using Pinstar’s rules except that the family will not start on an empty lot. I will be playing for points so to balance out the start in an existing home the value of that home will be deducted from the family funds. The legacy house is the Sunny Summer House downloaded from Parsimonious. I will be playing this as a matriarchy. The only male sims allowed to live in the legacy house will be the ones born into the family. I am also doing Story-teller (obviously) and have not yet decided if I will use Family Trait. I will know for sure once the second generation rolls their last traits when they become young adults.

Completion:  I loaded this save file up and realized that the issues I was having way back then with the save error had resulted in the last few days missing.  So I decided to play through those days and try to salvage what I can from the legacy.

Located all of the gravestones for the family with the exception of three: Aurora (1), Auriga (3), and Caroli (6).

Verified all of the portraits were still in the house.  I couldn’t tell you which was which, but here are all nine portraits.

About Teresa 964 Articles
I have been playing Sims since August 2005; a member, then a moderator, and now an admin of Boolprop.net since October 2006. My sister is the one that hooked me on Sims in the beginning. She had all of the original Sims games and one week while I was on vacation I took her games and started playing. That was the beginning of my obsession. I played Sims 1 for about a month and then decided to buy Sims 2. When Sims 3 was released I made the move and have never looked back. Now I am all in on Sims 4 and still loving it.
