    @cecerose0208, just read your latest chapter!
    What is Khaled's problem? Nivea is gorgeous -- he should marry her immediately and quit this "just friends" business. Can you move him in any time or do you have to wait for Nivea to propose? Love that pink dress on her.

    I could move him in at any time. I'm not strictly following Pinstar's rules.

    @MVWdeZT I'm all caught up on your story! Now to go back to the beginning and see what I've missed on everyone else's story in the past couple of weeks.

    No luck playing the Fitzgeralds since I'm back in school. At least I got up to the first important part of a legacy before classes started.

    Hi! Sorry for not being around here much. Chapter 1.08 Suspicions Part 2 is out.

    @MVWdeZT Yay! Opening it now so I make sure to read it when I get a chance! :)

    @PurplishSimEater Don't worry, you'll have time sooner or later. School is important so I'm happy you are disciplined enough to put that before sims!

    @ny275, Ooo, cliffhanger!
    Siobhan certainly doesn't look pregnant there. But now that I know what happened with your game, that makes sense.

    @ny275 Yay for a new chapter!

    I feel like the end of summer can be just as time consuming as the middle, lol. Waiting for school to start, vacations, etc. If I didn't get a bunch of chapters scheduled ahead of time, I'd be SOL right now.

    Also, I was just thinking about the frequency we each post at. So here's a question for everyone: At your current pace, how long do you think it will take you to finish your legacy?

    I think it will take me 2.5 years to finish, if I keep up my current pace of chapters and how much Sim time each chapters covers.

    I do about a generation every month or so... so probably finish in 6 months? I'm thinking of doing an extension though w Alissa from G11 on sort of a reboot. :)

    First, I forgot to share my update yesterday: Up to No Good.

    Second, I'm running similar timing to @jbestxoxo, but I'm going to make a big push to try to be finished at the end of the year. I'd really like to give Uncle Benjamin in his own story and feel like I cannot do that while the legacy is running.

    Anyone besides jbest planning on elaborating a character in their legacy in their own story/reboot?

    At your current pace, how long do you think it will take you to finish your legacy? It took me 6 months to get to where I am now (Gen 4 are children), so it looks like another year before I finish.

    @allysimbuilds, I'm all caught up now, and it looks like Louis will have his hands full. Regarding his marriage, I'm reminded of a young man who complained, "I don't remember what I said, but she remembers!"

    @allysimbuilds Yes to spin off plans - but no comment yet as to who gets the spin-off.

    At your current pace, how long do you think it will take you to finish your legacy? Well I don't plan to have a ton of chapters in each generation. I think 15-20 max so hopefully the legacy won't take longer than 2 years.

    Anyone besides jbest planning on elaborating a character in their legacy in their own story/reboot? Well not at the moment but I can probably be persuaded otherwise. If the right sim comes along at the same time as a good idea, I'd have no problem doing something like that!

    @MVWdeZT
    I love your writing style in the Straud Dynasty. I laugh almost every time I read it! I enjoyed seeing toddler stuff in your update. I still haven't gotten that (or fitness) yet so I love seeing it in other people's stories. I had to giggle at the mention of pets!

    At the moment I think a year or so. I will be able to update quicker come the end of September!!

    Not sure yet maybe??

    OMG, I would love that! You know Alissa is my girl! Maybe you could do a vampire dynasty, lol.

    Not yet, but I'm like @ny275. If the right Sim or townie comes along, I might do just that. Maybe I'll do a wonder child challenge with the Gen 10 heir, I dunno.

    Fitzgerald updating, part deux: My game is mega-glitchy after getting Toddler Stuff and I don't know what the source of it is other than a "script error". Until I get it worked out, I'm too paranoid to play with my legacy save.

    I love Alissa!!! I may have to cure her eventually though, for some reason vamps in my game are super glitchy :(

    Oh no! Glitchy vamps are the worst. I don't remember if you have MCCC or not, but that mod has a built in feature that logs any errors. If your CC is causing it, it will identify it by name so you know to remove it. Then the glitches go away!

    By the way, I had a new chapter up yesterday! If you haven't read it yet, Khaled asks Nivea out on another friend date, not date date, lol.

    Chapter 1.07 – More Small Victories
  • allysimbuildsallysimbuilds Posts: 422 Member
    @cecerose0208 I love that you have to specify "friend date, not date date" :D Kahled is so frustrating to me... hopefully now he'll get it!

    Khaled has singlehandedly made me decide that if I ever have a "traditional" founder again for an IBSI, it will be a male. I can't with him man. I seriously painted myself into a corner with Nivea's character. Everyone seems to love her though, so I'm rolling with it.
  • MVWdeZTMVWdeZT Posts: 3,266 Member
    Great update! And with an ISBI, it's best not to wait for the future spouse to make the moves (I suppose it might be different if you're playing with mods). Glad that Nivea got her promotion so soon!

    I agree about ISBI spouses. Also, she's been killing it at work. She's gonna be CEO before she even ages up, lol. Maybe she'll take time off after she has kids.
