    @Sims4MagicalTales Sounds like a lot of fun in your game! Is yours a traditional, rule-following legacy challenge? I've been tempted to do a legacy in the past but a) I'm too attached to my mods (I know that rules stipulate you can't use mods that put you at an advantage over other legacy players) and b) I prefer creating my characters' partners rather than marrying a random townie.

    I did that for my Sims 4 founder and Hannah I but except for I think one other character they marry townies (well not counting who I had Hannah I matched-made her friends with) from someone on here

    Life got away with me but I am so pleased and a little sad to share the final two chapters of Generation III of Evergreen. I am excited for Gen IV to start on Sunday, though.

    Chapter Nineteen: Individual Ambitions

    Francesca closes in on her own lifetime goal while juggling a growing family and finally sharing her vision for future generations.

    Chapter Twenty: From Ambitions to Late Nights

    Both Sunset Valley and Evergreen House see changes to their image in time for the new heir to find out their legacy.

    I trying to re-write my Gen 7 chapters before filming but I'm stuck on the "big opening speech" from "Meatball" for 7.17 chapter. All I can remember is he references Tuck Everlasting about how he is still living.

    I'm not sure if this is good enough to "pass" for the opening speech:

    Hello, there yes I’m talking to you. I’m Meatball- if you might remember I was introduced to you guys back in Gen 3 to help America Swanson out. You might be wondering how I’m still alive while the explanation is simple- I drank from the same water source as the Tuck family from Tuck Everlasting. I'm going to be in this chapter in the background literally.

    Because I can't remember the rest of the chapter beside riddles

    @MadameLee can you explain a bit further what you’re trying to do? A new chapter can always be a new POV without having to explain the absence of the first character, or you can do that from the new POV. E.g. end chapter from character A’s POV as usual, start a new chapter labelled as Character B’s POV and have them mention Character A is away on a trip somewhere.

    I usually indicate POV by underlining the character’s name at the top of the chapter. Not sure if that’s what you were asking but hope that helps!

    There's two characters Character A is the famous "Meatball" guy from SimLit including my own and he's doing some expostion between what happened at the end of the last chapter about other characters including Character B (Henry)- and how Henry is obessed in trying to find some kind of "clue" in one of Jane's rooms - and Meatball hears an excited yell and "Oh Do you Hear that? Henry must have found a clue" and then I will switch to Henry's POV

    How is everyone's Saturday going?

    I'm been writing drafts for some future scenes and working on a location I need for next chapter.

    Preview for anyone curious:

    @Sims4MagicalTales My daughter's birthday was on Saturday and I have been struggling to remove a bug in my game.
    On Sunday I'm going to a painting course, so I'm quite busy.

    @SirianaSims You are so good at creating cozy cafe environments :love:
    I am still very inspired by the cafe in your previous chapter that takes place at the Casbah Gallery. I'm still considering converting the bar into a cafe as it would make so much more sense....but it takes time and I don't have any scenes that will take place in a cafe right now.

    I had a question because I'm struggling a bit. It feels Awkward to come back to the forums after being gone so long just to ask a silly question...

    I want to go back to writing my matriarch challenge. I've lost track of the story because it's been so long and my life has been scattered all over the place. Is it wrong to just.... rewrite it a bit.? Using the same screenshots and general storyline. But like ... a second draft until I catch up to where I was so that I can figure out what I was doing and get a more cohesive story?
