I’m Valerie and…I’m a Sims 3 newbie. 🙂
For those of you wanting to know the full story behind my newbie-ness, you can check out my “about this legacy” tag.
In short, I have recently been saddled with the Sims 3 (plus expansion packs) and I have absolutely no clue how to play them.
Those of you who won’t have the patience to put up with my unrelenting confustion, frustration, and questions… Uhh… Please look at another legacy…?
Anyways, let’s get down to business.
I always thought that the premade towns were kinda lame so I searched the net and found this:
I wanted the Late Night (Nightlife??) stuff mixed in with the Ambitions junk and still having a small town feel.
Anyways, to get me started, my friend was kind enough to build me a family (sorta kinda not really based on the family from the Generations box).
Don’t let these pictures fool you. I failed epically. Never before had one family experience so many near starvations, potty failures, demotions, fires, or ‘accidental’ drownings.
I began to think to myself, “Why not fail at a truly massive scale? Why not play a game I know almost nothing about for ten generations, just to see what happens?”
Enter Annette Zero:
You can kinda tell this was my first time using CAS, huh?
Naturally, I wanted to play around with the sliders:
Epic boob job of epicness.
Enter Annette Hogan… 😮
Eventually, I settled with the fairly average Sim that will be my Legacy Founder.
After trying to figure out the traits system and failing, I randomized them because I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing.
So, she’s a disciplined heavy sleeper who’s frugal, neat, and has a great sense of humour. She wants to be ‘Swimming in Cash’ (whatever that means) and she likes pink, hamburgers, and classical music.
Somehow, I feel as though I’ve made this legacy just that much harder.
