Okay, I will start off before the current leg of the Legacy started. I had an uncertancy period where I didn't know who I wanted to play, so, here it is.
To recap, before I begin, I'm playing a legacy with this foundation
Founders--> 3 Second Generation Kids--> 5 (controlled) Third Generation Kids --> 2 (controlled) Fourth Generation Kids
Now, I say controlled, because after second generation, I let the unused children to florish and marry via Story progression, and the neighborhood is just FULL of their presence. Hard to marry at points, but is good because there is always a cousin to befriend.
Rocker Brother (Nicholas) & Sister Inventor (Andrea). Lol freak out sesh
MELISSA, STOP USING YOUR MATERNAL POWERS TO BREAK THE COMPUTER.
btw, in the background is Samantha Martinez, the last heir (second) in the Legacy. the story has moved on to the 4th generation, and the woman giving birth is an extension of the 3rd generation (married Rocker Child). Technically, she gave birth to the first 4th generation child, but I never played them after this.
Okay, this generation pretty much kicks off with the death of Sam, the previous heir. By this point...
Although she started off the least likely to be heir, I picked Nichole, the bookworm doctor, to be the heir. I usually call her Melvin though, as a nickname, haha.
Ironically, Nichole met a very similar fate. In Crescent Cove, the graveyard is VERY far away from society, leaving no shower to be closeby..
She died. Almost at safety, too!
However, this only proved to be a story twist. I had never played a playable ghost before, so this was my break! By the way, she married Spenser, someone who randomly comes up in CAS I believe, so you may recognize him.
Nichole picking up her normal child, Jacob. OH, you may realize the house is REALLY ugly. This is purposeful, because it was a nice Victorian style that I could see my bookworm thriving in. It got much expanded by this legacy.
As I've been trying to do the Ambitions Career, Spenser uses his Charisma to start the Architectural Design career. Nichole is trying to become a World Renouned Surgeon.
Typical night at the graveyard.
Nichole gave birth to my first ever ghost baby, Macy.
This is about the (no offense here guys,) gayest interaction this game has. But because Spenser is a techniphobe, it serves as the main entertainment for the household (until Jacob becomes rebellious, that is).
Dawhh.. Brother and Sister interacting xD
I cant remember, but I thought this bear worked great for the peculiar storyline, haha.
Designing is serious shit, ask Spenser.
I hope she has insurrance!
Jacob grew up, and due to his mother's disposition, he was also a bit chubby. He wanted a life change, so I made him start working out. Just as a hobby, you know.
Macy before she grew up. Sorry I lack some pictures, I took a lot of pictures on cellphones and they are on the digital picture frames in game. First time I tried that, too.
Just for a change, Macy became a fisher. It's her sport!
Everyone grew up around the same time, and spenser is seen here trying to bring up his charisma skills.
God, I love the sunsets in this game with the lighting mod I use.
This is how your supposed to eat cake! (Jacob grew up into a Young Adult)
Now, here's the story line change. Picture somewhat related. I decided I was sick of seeing Macy as a ghost. So, I set it out as my mission to bring her to life.
I used a few tutorials, but I figured out. I needed a fisher, cook, and gardener in order to cook Ambrosia, which required Deathfish and Life Fruit as it's ingredients. Macy was a Fisher. Nichole could be a cook, as she was a bookworm and fast learner. But I needed a gardener..
So I thought back through the generations. Who was in the science career / gardened?
My answer was Abraham Martinez. He was the first child of the legacy. Wasn't picked as heir. But because I didn't move him out right away, he had almost level 7 gardening. Bingo! I had an "Oh My Ghost!" oppertunity, and he became a reality.
Just for reference, this is what he looked like as a Young Adult.
That's when I realized it took 3 ghosts in the house to make one human the outcome. Awk.
Macy and her Great Uncle Abe going out on a late night fishing trip at the graveyard. Macy had alreay got the Alley Catfish and then Angel Fish. This quest was a go!
Deathfish aquired! Meanwhile, Melvin was reading up and got her cooking to level 9.
A nice shot of the graveyard at night!
The irony i put into the story is that Jacob was to become a ghost hunter. Originally, I was going to split the family up, making their parents divorse because Nichole had the cheater reputation (thanks to early relationship story progression interferance), make jacob hate his mother, and become a ghost hunter out of rebellion, but I was too busy with everything else. Plus they needed the money.
Meet Donnie! Macy found him in the deep within a chest! My first Magical gnome!
Jacob: Right, THIS is why I hate ghosts! Screw you, Uncle Abe.
You know, him and his Aunt Andrea would have gone good together
(right before Uncle Abe originally died)
Ghost hunting is fun, and I'm glad I'm doing it, but I think Macy will be the heir.
Donnie is still messing around in Uncle Abe's garden. He previously went out and collected a bunch of unknown special seeds. I hope one of them is a life fruit! I to this point feel bad that I brought back a dead uncle as a gardening slave. Haha!
Jacob's first kiss with a highschool crush of his. She's kinda butchy, if you know what i mean. I gave her a makeover after that, and she is waaay to muscular, and everything made her look like a man. Another reason I won't be using Jacob as heir. *prays Macy is pretty*
I thought this was funny. Couldn't tell if it was a new ghostly animation or if the reality goggles provoked her to do so.
BINGO! Life Fruit was one of the Unknown Special seeds. The plan had all the requirements completed!
Here's Nichole, making the Ambrosia. Perfect
quality. ooh, and it glows!
Macy! Don't die on us! You're about to become human!
Macy: Hmm, I feel a bit dizzy...
Don't fail on me now! This is the biggest quest I've ever done in The Sims 3!
Macy: Woah.. I can feel myself.. wait..
I'M NOT A GHOST ANYMORE!!! Perfect Birthday Gift!
Now, I'm not sure if this reset her life cycle, but it was her birthday, and she grew up.
She's actually really pretty! I spent forever trying to find an appropriate hairstyle.
Unfourtunately, Uncle Abe was no longer needed. He returned to to the Netherworld.
Meanwhile, as seen as the last pictures, we had left over ingredients, and although she had been a ghost her whole life..
I decided to make Nichole human again. This also reset her lifestage. Now, as she reached the top of the medical career, she could make money for the family longer! *I'm such a user, hahaha*
Nichole: I haven't felt my face since I was in my 30s!
There's Nichole, doing what she does best. In fact, she was learning how to Garden, so that she could take care of Uncle Abe's garden, now that she was at the begining of the Elder Stage again.
YOU CAN'T MAKE ME LEAVEE!!!!
