So jealous, Heaven! I want a new computer : (

Update:

3.10 - What a B- http://sarisimsrandomlegacy.blogspo...310-what-b.html

You can be "eh" about Pearl, Rio and even Nile... but not Kitten. You either love her or hate her. No middle ground.

For those of you that play with twallan's StoryProgression, do you leave rigorous home inspection on? I mean, what's the benefit of having it on? I know that it will check for enough cribs and beds and the like, but does it negatively affect the townies' moods if there aren't enough beds in their house? Or is that somewhat automated? I'm trying to determine if I need to go through and add cribs to all the houses in LP or if I can just be lazy and turn home inspection off. I'm curious what y'all do.

@Heaven- Congrats on the purchase! That's so exciting! What kind of computer did you get? (Or is that a rude question? I'm never sure. Don't answer if you don't want to, lol.)

I don't even know what that option is. I usually don't fiddle with stuff unless I know explicitly what it does. Home Inspection is not one of those things!

I don't see it as a rude question. It's a Cyberpower. Don't want to brag so I'll put the specs in spoiler.


The monitor isn't actually here yet so I've got it hooked up to our large screen TV in the bedroom (nerd much?). I couldn't wait to actually turn it on. Also, I've got to get a wireless adapter (derp for not checking that out when I ordered) so it may not be until next week before I actually get a chance to play Sims on it. I've been contemplating installing TS2 just to play SOMETHING on it. Maybe Medieval.

*sighs* I want to play simsssss. Stupid stupid game, it is just broken. I don't know what's crashing my game, all I know is that I'm MAD.

Buckley, I BELIEVE they move them to a house that has enough beds. Not 100% sure though, that could have been some other Twallan feature.

Wow! Nice! That should run the game really well.

When my game doesn't work, I just take everything out and slowly add it back in if the vanilla game runs fine. Granted, I've never had too many issues or even had to do a complete reinstall. Wish I could help more.

Buckley, I have the inspection on for double beds. If a house doesn't have enough beds to accommodate all the Sims in the house, they are moved to a house with enough beds, or made homeless if there are no houses that have enough beds. I used to have it on for cribs, but so many Sims became homeless that I turned it off. Apparently my Sims like large families. But that's all that option does as far as I know. It hasn't appeared to do anything else in my game.

Congratulations on your new computer Heaven!

I finally cobbled together an update. It's mostly baby and toddler spam. http://tudorsimslegacy.blogspot.com...winging-it.html

The next chapter should be up in a day or two; it's about three quarters of the way written, but I need to do a bit of research and finalize the plot.

I hope everyone who celebrated the Fourth of July enjoyed their holiday!

I think it moves the family to a house with enough beds and cots, not sure what it does if there isn't a house with enough though. I tend not to turn it on because I don't want to go round the entire neighbourhood making sure there are enough beds and cots.

Heaven - I'm deeply jealous of your new computer! It sounds fantastic!

Just on the (slight) topic of computer names, I named mine Henry, to which my dad asked "... Why?"

My iPod's name is Albert.

But with SP inspections, I think if you dont allow them, it won't negatively effect them, but I'm no expert.

Hey everyone! I've been slowly starting to get back into the Sims, so I thought I'd come see how things were going for everyone in the challenge. Nice new thread you've got here. It will probably be a little while before I post any new updates still, but I might post some pictures around MTS, so I wanted to pop in and say hi.

Congrats on your new computer, Heaven. My partner just got one too, so I'm jealous even though mine's already pretty good. ^^;

For rigorous home inspection, I don't THINK it will kick Sims out of somewhere they're already living, but it will prevent homeless Sims from moving in. Don't hold me to that, though.

I've just checked Twallan's site and Rigorous Home Inspection just means that Story Progression won't move a family into a house which doesn't have enough beds etc - it looks like he's updated it to include options for double beds, career items and pets as well

Woot, not the only one who gave names to electronics. xD My computer's name is Fred, while my ipod is Jeremy. My best friend and I also named all the appliances in her kitchen. >.>

So, I got that terrible thing in my game where when I enter CAS, it stays on Materializing Materials... Forever. Three days of combing through CC, and trying to get my launcher to open so I can clear that too, I finally gave up and just deleted the entire Sims folder in My Documents. So if this doesn't work. I don't know what I'm going to do. I'd just uninstall Sims, but I wouldn't be able to put it back on, since I gave my disks to my little sister to borrow. -_-

All this just to try and make an outfit to look like someone was in jail.

I like how you all gave male names to your gadgets. My computer is named Brünnhilde, after the character in Richard's Wagner's Ring cycle operas. Yes, I am a nerd who likes classical music. Or maybe I was just obsessed with Bugs Bunny as a child and he did a spoof on it once. (Here.) You decide.

Hey look there's a thread for this! Hooray! Well, hello all, my name is Lacey, and I am going to start a Random Legacy soon. I just popped in to say I'm very very grateful for all those that helped create the Random Legacy and also for the stories, as I do enjoy a couple of them. To add to the discussion of names - my iPod's name is Anakin, my computer is Zee V2.0, and my tablet is Zayva. I recently named by eReader Choco.

I named my laptop Sarah. (Not Say-rah. SAH-rah... I'm picky) She's beautiful, and sleek, and elegant, and I love her. <3

The desk where I used to have my big computer was Freddy. The computer itself had no name...

Welcome to the challenge Lacey and Zexxa! I'm looking forward to hearing about your legacies!

Everyone has such fun names for their gadgets. Technically my laptop is Artemis, but I tend to refer to her as "Old and Busted." Not very creative, but highly accurate. My iPod goes by Relic, as it is a relic.

There is no shame in liking classical music, as it is awesome, especially with Bugs Bunny. My orchestra played Barber of Seville overture last fall and our conductor stopped us and said, "I don't care how fast Bugs Bunny took the tempo, you need to follow MY tempo!" Silly conductor, Bugs Bunny's tempo is the best!

My old laptop is named the Beast. It suits him. He's like 15 pounds with a 19" widescreen. He needs a new video card, then I may use him again. This laptop is new, so it doesn't have a name yet.

I should have weighed my old laptop. It could play Black&White2, which was impressive to me at the time I bought it. xD

It's since been replaced by a desktop. I won't go back to laptops.
