Better late than never!
Back in November 2014, Tanu and I decided to do the Random Legacy Challenge TOGETHER! That means we take the SAME Founders, place them in the SAME world and see what happens in our respective games. Sound fun, right?! It is!!!
EDIT: February, 2016
Due to a number of game-related computer issues **crash! glitches! try to save! move family to another town & recover some of the lost game! more crashing! more glitches! game save becomes corrupted and unplayable!** tanubanue ended her portion of the co-play.
What is a Random Legacy? Glad you asked.
Please go to Random Legacy Challenge
and check it out!
After MUCH discussion (in a short amount of time!)...
We decided to play in Riverview.
Time to EDIT TOWN!
Game lots we are using - placed either automatically by the game or by us:
Aleister's Elixirs and Sundries (250 Cotton Branch Drive)
Barney's Salon and Tattoo (225 Cotton Branch Drive)
Community Fire Department (1060 Dogwood Lane)
Flying V's Coffeehouse (15 Hidden Grove Lane)
Grady's Junkstop (275 Cotton Branch Drive)
Landgraab Sell n' Swap (303 Cypress Lane)
Performance Park (10 Hidden Grove Lane)
Varg's Tavern (across the street from 45 Hidden Grove Lane), added a 40x40 lot via World Editor
Store venues we are using:
Business as Usual Bistro (1047 Dogwood Lane)
Deliciously Indulgent Bakery (1067 Dogwood Lane)
The Century Manor Then - the pretty one! (added a 40x40 lot via World Editor on Bounty Drive; next to lot containing Wonderland Amusement Park)
Please refer to Links
for a listing and more information on each lot.
Tanu sent over (via email) a couple of Sims, Nichol Reiley and Zachary Snyder. Please peek at the Family Tree
for pictures of these BEAUTIFUL Sims!!!
We are going to do our best to follow the rules/guidelines but want this to be a really fun adventure for both of us so if in doubt about any rule or something that comes up DURING game-play, we will discuss and make a "judgement call" together.
Founders found, check.
World decided upon, check.
Lots added, check.
Selected the starter house, check. We chose Tish Cottage at 27 Lost Willow Road.
Rolls for Founders (Generation 1) done, check.
Time to get going!
A little bit of play occurred and we would text or email stuff we just HAD to share
**brakes applied and tires slightly squeal in protest**
We then had to take a wee break due to co-hosting the Homemade Holiday Gift Exchange as well as enjoying the Christmas and New Year's holidays.
Now we are back playing/enjoying this co-adventure and think it is time to share some of it with all of you!
Please read and enjoy (hopefully!)

ETA: With the recent Photobucket change in TOS, as many of you are aware of (having experienced it yourselves!), images have been replaced with a stock "click this link, pay $400 a year, and you can have your pictures shared on forum threads and other areas again" image.
Sharing pictures of Sim creations, stories, whatever else I do in my Sims games on these forums as well as my blog is something I enjoy and am
willing to pay for ... but not as such a hefty fee. Actually, it's beyond hefty in my opinion! If I was a business generating some sort of revenue, I would be fine with paying a higher professional fee
, but this is done just for fun and $400 a year takes the fun out of it.
Blog images: Photobucket images are intact as of now, but I will be removing those and replacing them with Wordpress ones uploaded directly from my computer.
Forum images: Will figure out another method for sharing them or at the very least, leave a link to another image storage systems such as imgur or whatnot. Still researching my options.
