This weekend on stream, we began the Legacy Challenge and I have to say it has so far been quite the experience! Many laughs have been had, many tears already shed, and let’s just say in the Sims world, $1,800.00 doesn’t get you very far, and lamps? Yeah, lamps eat electricity like fucking crazy.
So. Let’s talk about the three rules or “laws” I have for my Legacy.
Gender Law: Equality: The Founder may be of either gender. Both boys and girls are eligible for the title of heir.
Bloodline Law: Modern: Both Naturally born and adopted children are eligible to be named heir.
Heir Law: Democracy: This rule may be used if you are displaying your Legacy Challenge in some public way. Either via Let’s Play, Live-stream, blog or other format where people can leave comment. The heir is chosen by your viewers/readers from among the pool of eligible heirs.
With that being said, we went onto our quest to create our legacy sim: Ophelia Shakespeare
-Aspiration: Master Chef
Trait 1: Foodie
Trait 2: Loves Outdoors
Trait: 3: Creative
With this being the Sims 4, will all of the current (as of 6/29/16) available stuff packs and expansions included, we didn’t really have the option of a 50×50 lot anywhere minus Willow Creek at the lot at the top left.
Once we bought the lot for $10,000.00 we then bought the armor that’s $8,200.00 to leave us with a measly $1,800.00. Thank god I have the Outdoor Retreat pack because it came in handy here.
So, this is how it started out. A measly firepit ( which by the way is the WRONG firepit!), a wooden bench, a light, cooler and tent. I had spent my money pretty stupidly, without looking and being smart, not realizing how hard that $1,800.00 would hit me, but it did – and hard.
Just hanging out at the uh glorious living site I have. Though, the land provides pretty greatly! Onion, strawberries, apples and grow fruit with two fishing spots and places for me to dig every day? It’s been phenomenal!
So later on after selling everything, not getting as much money as I should have, etc etc, I had a solution. We downgraded the tent. We got a small wastebasket, a correct fireplace, and a chair, plus toilet and shower. We were set and golden. Also, you see that bastard light over there glowing? Yeah. Don’t buy lamps.
Personally, I loved it when people would just show up to the house unannounced. It was hilarious. They’d just stand by the mailbox waiting around like I had a front door or something, watching my Sim walk around and not inviting them onto the lot. Shit was hilarious.
Have this awesome selfie from Ophelia! Fun fact: didn’t know you could take them in the game so this was my first one! Here’s Ophelia at her ‘house’.
So, by the end of the stream, this is where we ended up. We have a smaller tent, a shower, toilet, mailbox, a large trashcan, a dance floor made of cardboard, a boombox, table and chair, oven, counter, and fridge. Still no walls, though.
She works as a Head Dishwasher currently. Can’t remember what we ended up with money wise, I’ll update the post later.
