    Yay! Just one question: how do you pick your sims' lifetime wants when they grow up into young adults? Are you allowed to pick? Also, if a lifetime want pops up while they're kids/teens, can you save it?

    One thing I need to get clear. Can I only control the founder and the heir or can I play all Sims living in the house.

    Since you can't choose the traits as they grow older I'm also assuming you cannot use the Mid-Life Crisis lifetime happiness reward? What about the change lifetime want reward?

    Thanks again Pinstar! :)

    Well, I started my legacy...

    and it's going to be interesting because my founder (who is a YA female) fell in love with that old Sekemoto woman :lol:

    Well I'm saying bye-bye to my test legacy, but I'm looking forward to starting my new one. Although I didn't break any rules, I just would rather start fresh. I'll be posting new images soon!

    Thanks for the rules :)

    I'd like to ask few clarifications.

    1 point per 100K spiration points - are you talking about used or unused points? E.g. if a sim has super green thumb aspiration reward worth 20K and 10K unused points is the points that counts towards that 1 point 10K or 30K?

    lifetime wants - how you set them to teens/kids and what happens if a kid or teen wants a certain lifetime want? Are you allowed to change lifetime wants later with an aspiration reward?

    life fruits - are you allowed to eat them? Gives sim one day more in their current age. Sims need to be quite high in gardening skill (level 8) to grow them.

    I have everything I want from the Sims 3 Store. Thanks again for everyone who helped <3

    Hey thanks!
    Well in that case I'll play the rules, 90 days it is. Mind you though, with the awkward socializing options in the game, it might be hard to get your founder hitched in time to biologically have a baby. I see problems! LOL!

    It might just be a bit harder, specially with Loner sims or such, but it is not a real problem, my sim is already married and will soon get pregnant, and she is still a young adult.

    I think I'm most likely to get sympathy here.

    I just restarted my legacy (I had used ambrosia in my previous one and had a playable ghost. Grr!), and at the end of day 2 my sim had the following possessions: A guitar (in inventory), a 2x3 room with floor and wall coverings (and even a door to get in! what luxury) and the stone park bench from buy mode.

    As my sim was napping the night away on her parkbench, a burglar comes onto the lot. That's right, ignoring the other 5 rich adjoining houses (I'm in riverview), the burglar comes straight for my sim.

    That's okay, I think. The only object on the lot is the bench, and with my sim sleeping on it, the burglar can't get to it, right?


    The burglar steals the park bench from under my sleeping sim (leaving her floating in the air) and runs off.

    Truly, an auspicious beginning...

    I was just reading through and have seen a few of the questions asked and quite a few of them have the answers in the rules.

    So yeah make sure you read through them carefully!

    Ahaha I want my legacy to be handsome and pretty but the other people are all ugly :(
