Hello :)


A few months ago I created a female sim called Petunia Farcroft in CAS. She married and had three children, whom all have names beginning with A. That begun the Farcroft Alphabetacy.

Now, before I dig myself a little hole, I'm not going to document it as well as the other legacy players on here, because I know I'll fall behind at some point, but I wanted to share what I've already managed to accomplish so far.

Note: The image uploading site I'm using, flickr, is very new to me. I'm not sure how to change the size of the images and an easier way to get the IMG link other than use the HTML one and remove the unnecessary words. So, please bear with. If you have any tips for me about Flickr and using it to post on this forum, please comment :)

Note 1: I've posted the chapters on Google Sites so it comes with a comment section below each post. Feel free to chat there or these here thread about the legacy and ask any questions or point out anything that concerns you.

Note 2: Around Generation D I changed the narrative style because I was overcome with inspiration thanks to @RoseAzul and her Montogomery family. So, this little note is to say a big thank-you to Rose and all the other legacy writers on here. If it wasn't for your wonderful stories I wouldn't be posting here on the first place. I thank-you :)


Now that all that needs to be said, has been said and all that needs to be done, has been done it's time to start with the story!

Thankyou for reading. Here's a little note to tell you what gender will be eligible.

Heirs: A C E G I K M O Q S U W Y

Heiress: B D F H J L N P R T V X Z

As you can see, it will alternate gender. I will keep the heir/ess and their spouses to have as many children till they have 2 girls/boys. Hopefully, Generation A will be a fluke and we'll be able to have two girls next generation.

Update 22/10/2014: Turns out it wasn't just Generation A that was a fluke, it will also be Generation C being all fluky. Fingers crossed that Generation E will have more than 1 boy!!

Wish me luck! Oh and before I forget, here's a link to the Farcroft Family Tree which will contain major spoilers as it is updated as I play, so be warned!

All the best,

LizzieMay

    Wow, awesome! It's funny because I was just telling Sihara I wanted to do something similar with alphabetical names with me next legacy lmao. Well, not the same as you. Basically my idea is to use names with the starting letter being alphabetical. The founder would have an A name, his/her first child would have a B name, if there's a second child it would have a C name and so on lol. I want to see how far down the alphabet I end up going.

    Your way is very clever though!
    Shhh!


  • LynnwoodLynnwood Posts: 2,933 Member
    Woo! Great start. I want to do an alphabetacy too, but not until my Gieke legacy is done. :) EEEE Chester, I can't wait to see if he pops up in your game lol. Good luck!
  • Lizziemay12Lizziemay12 Posts: 1,178 Member
    @RoseAzul -- That way sounds interesting, too. Would it be like an 100 baby challenge, but you name kid 1 with A? Or would you do it generational? Say, if the first generation has two kids, they'd be B and C (after the founder is A) and the second generation (B's heir, shall we say) has D and E?

    @Lynnwood -- Thankyou! I have seen him around a couple of times but unfortunately my sims have yet to meet him. If and when they do, I'll post a picture for you :)

    Yes Lizzie, generations, each child born would be b,c,d, e and so on down the generations. Lol I was going to do that with the Delany Legacy but I forgot lmao.
    Shhh!


  • Lizziemay12Lizziemay12 Posts: 1,178 Member
    @RoseAzul, LOL. I often forget to do an alphabetacy and pick random names. Originally this was supposed to be a original legacy but I wanted to see what letter I can get up to before moving on or I lose the family somehow. I had got to generation E in Sims 3 when it first came out but nothing more than that. I've got names for other letters (Harriet for Generation H, as example) so it might be something to make me keep going to that letter.

    OK. I'm struggling getting Ari matched up and this thread will explain mostly why with a short warning about the complexities of Sims 4 relationships...

    EDIT. Moved post contents to it's own webpage. Visit here if you want to read the latest chapter: https://sites.google.com/site/farcroftalphabetacy/home/generation-b-chapter-1

    Hello all! I've finally updated the Farcroft Alphabetacy website so all links should be working. All is left for me to do is start the family biography center where I'll be posting headshots and doing a little bio of the family members to keep our minds fresh. Thankyou for reading and I hope you enjoy the new Farcrfot Alphabetacy website!

    Awesome job LizzieMay!
    Shhh!


  • Lizziemay12Lizziemay12 Posts: 1,178 Member
    Thankyou @RoseAzul! I'll be posting chapter two of generation B tomorrow. At least I think I'm on Generation B. The B babies are Generation B, right? But did Gen B start when Ari was an adult or when the first Gen B baby is born? Gah. So much confusion with this legacy!

    Generation B Chapter 2 is NOW UP!! Click here!

    Sorry it took so long, I've been attempting to fix Alice's family relationships up. She is the sister to her children, but I won't say any more!

    @sims21975 -- Hi! Thanks for reading :) and for the comments :) I think the eyebrows are the most communicative part in the sims. They really droop when they're sad :(

    For those of you still following, Generation B Chapter 3 has been posted :)

  • RoseAzulRoseAzul Posts: 497 Member
    Awesome update! Lol, yes I finally got caught up with it :p
    Shhh!


  • Lizziemay12Lizziemay12 Posts: 1,178 Member
    @RoseAzul - Ah thanks for reading :) I fear that our legacies are falling behind the onslaught of 100 Baby challenge and Sims 4 challenges. There should be a sepearate sub category for Legacies only :)

    Generation C Chapter 1 is now posted! As always, thankyou for reading :) Chapter 2 will be following shortly.

    Hello. Update time so soon? Well, only because I've been uploading images like a mad hatter! I've also edited the Alphabetacy Extras page so you might want to check that out. It now has a selection of thumbnail images and biography for each member of the family. This will be updated as I write the chapters out, so viewing this after you've read the recent chapters will hold no spoilers. BUT looking at the family tree will. So...please be warned :)

    Generation 2 Chapter 2 awaits you!

  • RoseAzulRoseAzul Posts: 497 Member
    Yay! Awesome update! All your updates are awesome lol, I really like your Legacy. I am constantly tempted to start an alphabetacy of my own lmao. And yes, it does seem like there's quite the large stack of stories, legacies and challenges around. And while it does get rather crowded and messy, on the plus side there are some fascinating stories to read out there lol.
    Shhh!


  • Lizziemay12Lizziemay12 Posts: 1,178 Member
    Very true, @RoseAzul and thankyou for your comments :) It's nice to know I have at least one reader!

  • RoseAzulRoseAzul Posts: 497 Member
    lol don't be silly! You have waaaay more than just one reader!
    Shhh!

    Double update! Generation C Chapter 3 and Generation C Chapter 4 are now up!

    I believe Chapter 5 will be the last chapter of this generation so will inevitably end with the heir's young adult birthday. Until then, please read and comment because, as always, feedback is appreciated :)

    Chapter 5.1 is now up!

    It turns away from the main legacy house towards the end, so it is likely that those pictures will be moved to it's own chapter at a later date.

    It's been a long time, I know, since the last update but I have discovered that Generation C: Chapter 5.1 had some issues with the pictures. That has now been fixed.

    I have also uploaded Generation C: Chapter 5.2. Happy reading and please post and comment as feedback is always appreciated.
