This is a The Sims 3 Legacy post. Well, more of a story than a real legacy. I'm not very good in following up several generations of sims because I get bored of them so I wanted to tell kind of a different story. For those who have no idea what I'm talking about, you can totally skip this post.

It's a Castaway Sim Story! )

Recap: Alexis, an abandoned lonely teenager lives on the streets, looking for scraps to trade for food and tries to save money to make a better life. She married Cornell, got pregnant, finished her house and panicked over getting a job, not sleeping and not having money.

Recap: Alexis, an abandoned lonely teenager lives on the streets, looking for scraps to trade for food and tries to save money to pay off her debt, which she managed to do after she found the abandoned fire station and used its facilities to learn painting and writing. She met a boy in school and made kissy faces while she wondered if she should tell him the truth about her existence. He was cool and loved her even though she only had the clothes on her back.

If you remember, this is Alexis Cotrim, an abandoned teenager trying to survive the harsh conditions that life has imposed on her. For an introduction read this post.

If you don't play the game, you can (and should) skip this post and all the following Legacy posts completely. You can peek if you want of course. And just to warn you, legacy posts are image heavy (I mean it! 60 pics or more), except for this one that is just an intro post. They will hopefully tell the story of how my founder (the first created Sim) goes from poverty and hunger and builds an empire of riches that lasts 20 generations.

This is a legacy based on Rags to Riches: A Billionaire Legacy rules found here. Basically you have to start from nothing but the rags on your back. First, you move to an empty lot with a teenager (you have to make an adult tag along, but then you delete it using cheats) and set your money to zero (use familyfunds cheat). You have to find a way to save money but you can't have a part-time job and you can't plant a garden. Once you have saved enough money you have to repay the computer (the lot is like a loan from the bank - after you make enough money to repay the bank, you use the family funds cheat again to reduce your money by the lot value), and only after that you can start saving the money to build your house (minimum of two rooms - specs to the first house found in the link). Only after you have built your house that you are allowed to get a job and start gardening.

Let me tell you, it's a HUGE challenge. I almost gave up so many times it's ridiculous. But I have prevailed. So far…

So I present to you the Cotrim Legacy. I promise this time I've worked harder. I have started two legacies before but computer problems have prevented me from continuing after chapter 1. My game is pretty advanced already and I just have to find the time to edit the pics and create the posts.

Some of you may not know, but I'm into The Sims 3 and I haven't stopped playing since yeasterday. Let's see how far I'll go with this Legacy.

The Smith Legacy - PICTURE HEAVY )

I have a problem with The Sims 3. A big problem. First, I can't stop thinking about it. Second, I can't stop playing it, and third, this game has crashed almost every time I played. Except for last night. I have a very decent computer and I know the problem is the game. I don't have mods and custom content downloaded, because I only own the game a week. I'll try to download a patch to see if it fixes, but with this soddy connection... Besides, nearly everyone complains about all all these crashes, so I'll not get my hopes up.

You know, the first thing I saw when I came to LJ looking for The Sims 3 stuff was the amount of Legacy posts. It annoyed me so much I almost gave up on sharing The Sims experiences online.

And now look at me, doing my very own Legacy *headdesk*.

The thing is that I found the rules for this legacy thing and got intrigued. It's a real challenge, so I'll see if I can play it like that. I'll try to post my progress and everyone is welcomed to skip it, because I'm sure most (if not all) of my flist doesn't have any idea what The Sims are.

For those that don't know, The Sims is a life simulation game. You create a person, define the looks, the size of eyes, nose, the cheeks, the type of the hair... you can take hours making your sim. Then you need to put clothes, define a personality, choose 5 personality traits from the huge number of traits there are, then favorites... This makes each sim unique. Then you move in to a house or an empty lot in which you'll have to build your house. Now, making a house is a whole other game on its own. For those who like architecture its absolutely awesome (usually, when our own architeture skill isn't the problem, our sim's money will be). Then, you have to play it. You choose a job, a career path, make life altering decisions, marry (or not), reproduce, die, start over... its endless. The game is huge. It takes two DVDs to install it, and you need a supercomputer to play it. I guess I can't really complain about the presence of bugs, it's understandable.

Legacy games have rules. I'll try to play by them, but it'll be hard. For starters, I need to move in to this huge empty lot which will leave no money for a house. I'll see how long I'll survive like this...

So, here goes the Franci Legacy. Beware, this post contains a fair number of images.
