Hello all and welcome to my Sims 4 Legacy! I have always struggled to stick with legacies, but now that I have collected most of the Sims 4 DLC I anticipate there will be tons to do to keep myself interested. This legacy will be scored as well to give myself more objective. At the end of each chapter, I will be tallying up whatever the score is at that point.
This is the Corbett legacy’s founder, Samuel Corbett. He loves the outdoors, and is creative as well as a geek. His first lifetime wish is to be a novelist. Later on he will likely do the tech/video game lifetime wish, or perhaps the painting one.
“Where is the homestead I was promised before I agreed to taking on this role?”
It’ll come in due time Samuel. Just be patient. Verrrrrry patient.I decided to to an extreme start in Brindleton Bay, so Samuel spent alot of his first day digging and hitting rocks. Since he’s a geek, he enjoyed ‘collecting’ the knick knacks he found, despite having to sell them right after.
“I presume while I am doing all this you’re building my homestead?”
Uh, yeah sure Samuel. Just keep digging.Since I went with the extreme start, the legacy had to start in the winter time. This led to Samuel spending alot of time in the library to keep warm. He joined the author career track, so he spent alot of time reading for his daily task.With not much to do after having dug up all the available areas around his lot, I decided to have him start working on his writing skill.After his first day at work, and first promotion, Samuel had enough money to buy the knight armor sculpture before the first set of bills came in.
“I’m just a bit confused, why did I buy this? It’s useless, I really could use a plethora of other things. I don’t even get to view it?”
No, those are the rules. Now quit complaining when you’re on the verge of turning blue from the cold.Samuel literally lived in the library, slumming it on an ottoman to sleep. Notice the red plumbob…He managed to stay in somewhat good spirits though, as he secured another promotion before heading straight back to the library for shelter, skilling, and some much needed need replenishment.Father Winter also made an appearance on gift giving day.
“Oh Father Winter, you remembered to come visit me at the Library!”
“Why of course I did, it’s where alot of the Legacy sims who are controlled by crappy players seem to hangout.”He gave Samuel a cheap gift that was promptly sold. Samuel didn’t mind though, and still got a positive moodlet from having a successful holiday.Once Samuel’s writing skill was high enough, he was able to begin selling all the books he had been stock piling to a publisher. In the long run I figured this would be better than self publishing, despite the prolonged poverty it induced.After a couple days of getting book royalties, Samuel was able to afford a tiny cabin. Since painting raised his fun, I used that to supplement his income.Since he had only been really grinding away and skilling for the past week, I decided to give Samuel a break and send him to the Romance Festival in the city. It was also an opportunity to scope out potential spouses.
“I’m not sure if I should trust this tea, are you sure it’s not spiked?”
That’s the whole point of the romance festival, now shutup and drink it!Samuel and Cassandra Goth hit it off, but she was only a teen he friend zoned her.She also had the gloomy trait, so she was perpetually down whenever Samuel invited her over to raise his social bar. “Are you really going to risk me getting electrocuted just to save a hundred simoleons?”
Hey, Sims don’t die (as far as I know) the first time they’re electrocuted anymore. Plus, you’re a smart guy, you’ll figure out how to jab that screwdriver onto that motherboard properly and fix it.
“As far as you know?! I really hope I get electrocuted and DIE just to ruin your whole legacy.”To raise Samuel’s spirits, I sent him out on a date with Ulrike Faust, another Sim he met at the Romance festival.
“At last, I can see the sunlight after being cooped up in that shack for days writing and painting.”
You’ll thank me when you’re living in a cushy moderately sized house, Samuel. Now get back to raising your social bar!The date went so well the two began dating the next day.
Ulrike ended up being a creative sim as well, so she would often use the easel and produce paintings be could in turn sell. But then, Samuel got invited to Cassandra’s birthday party. I had never been invited to one of these events before (are they new?), but since the two had hit it off so well as friends I figured it wouldn’t hurt to go and see if anything advanced from there with her as a Young Adult.Are you really going to keep your sunglasses on inside, and even worse wear glowsticks around your neck?
“I’m ill-prepared! You know you never let me attend social events, these glowsticks are the only accessories I own. I also know that you’re sitting behind that screen with pajamas on.”
Touche, touche.With Cassandra having transitioned into a Young Adult, Samuel developed an interest in her as soon as the sparkles cleared.The two flirted all evening, infront of Cassandra’s family nonetheless.Things advanced quickly due to them already having a high friendship level.“Oh Cassandra, when you emerged from those sparkles I suddenly saw a whole new, fully matured woman. Despite you still wearing the same outfit and school girl pig tails.”But, Samuel already had a girlfriend, Ulrike. He invited her over and dumped her on the spot. Harsh, but we need to get onto tackling his future spouse’s lifetime wish.“It’s not me Ulrike, and it’s not you. It’s Cookie in the sky.”
“Who the hell are you talking about? You need to get your head out of your books and stop speaking in poems.”
“You wouldn’t understand anyways.”I gave Cassandra a makeover to help her look more polished and mature. She also grew up with the snob trait, so this new style definitely suits her better.
Samuel also managed to complete his aspiration (or lifetime wish as I’ve been wrongly calling it). Now he’ll move onto the Computer Whiz aspiration.Cassandra, the gloomy, creative snob that she is, always had this ridiculous pout on her face whenever she came over to visit.
“Don’t talk about my Cassandra that way! I don’t blame her, my walls aren’t even painted, and my house is half furnished.”Samuel rolled the whim to get engaged to Cassandra, so he took her into the most furnished room in the house and popped the question. She surprisingly, despite her incessantly pouty demeanor, said yes.This is where I’ll end this chapter. So far the score is:
Athletic – 1 point for completing an aspiration.
Extreme Start – 1 point.
Eventually I will start using a spreadsheet to keep track, probably once the second generation rolls around. Thank you all for reading, and happy New Year!
