At first I was amazed.. I hadn't even noticed how much skill-building she was doing. But then I realized that she lives in my custom 'hood where 3/4 of the seasons are Fall.. lol! I guess I've found the secret to sim-success! ;P
The Adom Legacy
I am not sure why my name is now bs624_SC or why it thinks i joined in Dec. 1969, any ideas pm me. Thanks!
You can call me bs, bs624, or just Becky :)
I enter contests, but I haven't won yet, so don't be worried.
Well, my game is pretty boring as of right now. (I plan on making a new set of sims later)
I played the Vector family today, which consists of Keely's Tavv and my Everly. All that really happened is that she got pregnant, gave birth to Remmy and Milo Vector, got a promotion, got pregnant again and gave birth to.. something rather, and then..
I got the bright idea to give her a makeover.
Well. I now realize how ugly she is. xD
Sooo, until I can get back in game and fix her face, that family will remain unplayed.
=P Tavv is too handsome to ignore, though.

Due to bad micromanagement Anita ended up dead from lack of rest while having the flu and while having the real sickness hack. It came as a bit of a surprise as her stats were pretty good really - no hints on death approaching. Well - I don't like this girl that much but I didn't want her being dead either - so I exited without saving. Anita has 20 simoleans in her account - a 302 simolean bill that's due tomorrow - and a 210 rent that's due in two days. The repo man has visited once - it seems he will be doing at least two more visits. Due to having so many enemies Anita always had her trash on the ground which of course led to roaches. She hired the exterminator - he took a chair and a computer as payment. As I really wanted to know what happens if you use the money machine while on low aspiration - I let Anita counterfeit some money (but not take it - I want to keep her poor). For the dissapointment of all my sims - counterfeiting money while on low aspiration doesn't get you busted - it will just set a fire to the machine. Anita will be an adult today at 18.00. When that happens i'll put her fuming dirty toilet, her fridge and her dirty counters in her inventory - put a tv-dinner in the oven and go for a ride - I want to see how the fire will spred. Then I'll let her move out of the house.

As for the neighbourhood itself, I've taken care of the food source...the mayor, Jean-Luc Picard (I really love the fact that he's the mayor) is getting some taxes. It's small for now because really, I'm only a week into playing and there are only 3 other households. Once this neighbourhood gets a bit more on it's feet, the taxes will probably either go up or the population will get bigger.
At the moment, Anthony is doing very well as a Vice President and Andrea is looking into getting a job in the Education field now that Blake will be in school. When she and Anthony married, she was in the military (don't remember what rank though) but she hated it and wanted to be a stay-at-home mom.
Nothing too exciting yet, except Anthony got electrocuted the other day while fixing a computer himself (they couldn't afford the repairman at the time). He's fine now though.
Lilia is a romance sim. She seduced most of the married men in West Port. She wants a rich husband so she got herself pregnant by Jake Henderson who is promising doctor. But Jake has no intention to do anything serious with Lilia because he’s married to socialité Isabelle Henderson with twins Royce and Liana.
Isabelle doesn’t know yet that his husband is having an affair with Lilia and has a child by her. She’s a fortune sim and wants a wealthy life for her family. After the twins were born she hired a nanny Julia Martinelli to live with them so that she can keep working.
Lilia gave a birth to baby boy Ricardo. Luckily Gloria Alvarez moved in to the flat next to them and made their life easier. While Lilia is working, Gloria is taking care of Little Ricardo.
Meantime Serge DiMera was caught by his wife Natasha while he was cheating her with Lilia. Serge is a family sim and he works a lot in their garden by selling the fresh products that he and Natasha produce. Though he loves his wife very much, he cannot keep himself away from Lilia who is beautiful and seductive. On the other hand Natasha wants to keep the family together. She forgave Serge and they had three children whom they called Lucas, Ariel and Stephan.
Jonathan and Alexandra are having their best time at the moment. They are happily married and both of them has a succesful carreer.
Bigfoot's Big Hair. And it's doing splendidly
Anthony reached the top of the Business career and is now working on maxing out all skills. Andrea *finally* got a job in the Education career the day Blake became a teen. Because she already had so many skill points and tons of friends, she's zooming along. His parents thought Blake would follow his father into Business but opted instead for the Adventure career. At the moment he's still at the first teen level but should be promoted today. He's dating Brittany Parker (the little redhead in purple that often comes home with child sims. They were best friends so I decided to grow her up when Blake grew up). Note that this is not a strict legacy as I'm using a few cheats along the way (like growing Brittany up, though I dunno if that counts or not).
Anthony is about a week away from being elder; Andrea's a couple of days behind him. Blake is about a week and a half from being an adult.
Anthony & Andrea are both elders now; Blake is an adult and married to Brittany Parker (once again I aged her up when Blake aged). They are expecting their first child in a few days. Andrea is I think at level 8 in the Education career. Brittany expects to follow in her mother-in-law's footsteps once her unborn child is in school. Hopefully she'll have better luck getting a job sooner than Andrea did LOL
Brittany became unbearably annoying during pregnancy. She gave birth to a son named Christopher and then died in a "tragic" swimming-related accident shortly thereafter.
Anthony retired so Blake could keep working without having to hire a babysitter. Andrea should be reaching the top of the Education career today.

Anyhow - after all this initializing - I did have time to create my first family in Basin city - Arwen Miller. It's the same idea as with the Pleasentview Arwin - living of the land. I let her join the gardening club - forgot it was forbidden. But I'm going to have a nother living of the land family coming soon so I'll keep that in mind. As I don't have any rich people yet - or nobody I can lend money from - Arwen's bakery is completley outside at the moment. She doesn't even have a pet yet. But she is 0 outgoing so the littel interaction she gets keeps her happy for long periods.
So I have the Steeles: Alexander is the founder, married to a Downtownie named April Copur (no apparent relation to Ivy Copur)... Alex is a Knowledge Sim with a LTW of being Media Magnate. He's well on his way! April came into the marriage at the top of her career (Slacker) and brought $70k with her! Her LTW is to earn $100,000... so since she doesn't have to do anything career-wise except go to work, she's working on maxing out skills plus earning badges in fishing and gardening (I don't have OFB so I can't do the rest of the badges). Oh and they have a son named Bradley. He just turned into a toddler so not sure exactly how he'll turn out.

LOL when Bradley was born, I had to quit 3 times before I finally got a boy. The last time I tried this, I had to quit so many times I eventually just gave up and had the girl.
Both Alex and April now have a silver fishing badge (they won't be running out of food anytime soon LOL) and April has a silver gardening badge as well. She's not in the gardening club though 'cuz all I'm doing is four apple trees... for now anyway. Maybe in later generations I'll make a small veggie garden along the back of the house.
Oh and they're also both excellent cooks... there have been no fires in the kitchen! (Watch, I say that now and the next time I go into the game, one of them will burn the house down :p)
Bradley has already finished learning how to talk and walk and has been potty trained. Smart Milk is awesome! He's also about 1/2 way through beating the bunny to death... I mean, learning charisma I can't wait 'til he's a child 'cuz I hate the toddler stage. So annoying.
Opening night consisted of these spontaneous events (I didn't even get to see what caused all the ruckus):
- 1 fight
- 2 people caught cheating (not cause of fight)
- 1 druken proposal by a married, father of 5 and heterosexual (I thought) man to a man he hardly knew (proposal rejected)
- 1 engagement proposal between a couple already in love (proposal accepted)
- 1 puddle of pee of the floor
- lots of tears
- lots of dancing
