Everything was going great with my first family, until the dad's birthday cake caught fire. This was my first TS3 fire and my sims were even more stupid than TS2 sims. The dad couldn't leave until the whole birthday script ran it's course (he was, of course, an inferno during this and I was unable to cancel the script). The mom couldn't put out the fire on her son the first 3000 attempts (it just wasn't an option). The firefighters stood around more worthless than a TS2 nanny. The kids kept running back inside the house to the fire. The mom was finally able to save her son, but I was so disgusted by everyone that I made the family run into the fire and deleted the game.
Legacy 2.0 is now at the same place - first generation has been born and are children - but it got off to a rockier start. In the first hood, my founder met and fell in love with Sherman Bagley right away, so I was able to start the dynasty and live comfortably within the first week. This time around, the only compatible sim was George Dean, and he was dating someone else. I was getting desperate, she was almost out of YAhood and there really are very few sim men in Riverview. Fortunately, George broke up with whoever he was dating and my sim got him on the rebound.
I've not played TS3 for very long and can see I'm going to need help on Generation 2.
Background: My sim just hired someone to repair the kitchen sink and instead of going to the kitchen he went upstairs to play chess. There were words between him and the founder and after she left the room I took off the door so he would be trapped and die a slow, painful death. (I really don't make a habit of killing off sims. Really. But he charged her for the non-work.) You folks probably know where this is heading - he transported out of there. So, for Gen 2, what are some effective ways to bump off an older, rich spouse?
