    I listed several things I’d like to accomplish this year in the New Years’ resolutions thread, but my primary goal on that list is to finish filling up the empty roadless world I began building in last year, and finally start playing it. I’m planning it as a fantasy realm for fairies and a small number of each of the other occult types and hybrids. I created 60 berry-style supernatural Sims to start, some of which will be my first generation actives played in rotation, and the rest are inactive residents intended to be role Sims, bosses and coworkers. It’s a smallish world with 40 lots; I’ve set up 23 as community lots and 17 as residential. Most of them I’ve built myself, although I did include some lots created by other simmers that I’ve expanded and tweaked to suit. I have just four more homes left to build now, so I’m in the home stretch!

    Best of luck to you with your CAW project (I greatly admire those of you with the talent and skill to create entire worlds!), as well as your gameplay plans. :)

    Good Luck with your world too :) I hope you will share some pics once you have your supernaturals moved in.

    I wrote my own legacy challenge!! I have the first ten gens (that can all be done with just the base game) written, and i hope to add some more about expansions!! Im playing it to make sure everything I wrote is reasonable and im having alot of fun!!! Its neat to think the first legacy i finish might be one i wrote myself! (also i was wondering if i should post it on here? im so happy to see theres still people who love the sims 3 like me!)

    Good luck with it all and I hope you will provide a link to your blog when you are happy for us to see the content :) As for building the more the better :D

    No sweat! It's on my signature.
    I've just organized the stuff related on this page: https://gamersplicer.wordpress.com/mcintyre-legacy/

    @Hejix I printed a few screenshots and I used to have them on my wall. LOL
    We create so many stories with our sims that it's impossible not to get nostalgic. I think blogging their adventures is a way to keep those memories alive. I have many from other games as well.
    I'll be checking your blog later. The best way is to go casual an not force yourself. I've got many unfinished stories, some with buggy pictures, but I don't delete them.

    Hopefully continuing my (legacy) Selfacy into Generation 3... from the tragedy that happened to the Founders.

    I did too! Even put one at my work, my colleagues thought I painted it. It's fun to know we're not alone! :)

    I've been planning to get my 100 baby challenge off the groung with the settlers trying to start pregnancies and new settlers arriving to start new lives in the colony.I've also been planning to get my apocalypse challenge in Sunset Valley 2 progressed to the point where other families start to arrive and settle in while some start to get ready for babies after being settled in for a few years.

    I’m planning to finish my heir’s generation by completing 6 tombs in France (Egypt and China are in the pocket, it’s her lifetime reward) and start playing the life of her son. Rough keywords being: strolling, living here and there, adding a stray dog and a wild horse to his household and then settle down to start a farm.

    But I’ve started 2019 with building a tomb for RFlong’s new world, so the rest’s on hold for now.
    I want to complete a legacy.
    I want to get a meteor shower.
    And I’m going to explore much of the content I have but don’t use (into the future as an example)

    Edited for spelling.
    And you’re going to play my tomb :mrgreen: :

    Any pics of your new tomb??

    So is the son generation 29 ? I really hope you manage to do the tomb challenge for his mum, I know you have been wanting to complete it for some time.
    Generation 22 that will be ;) This is the exterior of the tomb:

    And a peek inside:

    Looking forward to France! It has some really challenging and fun tombs.

    I want to build more - especially venues. And I want to play out a real family tree. Have the kids, grow them up, send them to Uni, and reach elder stage and death. Have not done that in forever.

    What a good idea to road test your legacy challenge first. So glad you are enjoying the challenge too especially if you are only using base game stuff. Having never successfully completed a legacy challenge I'm not sure how you post the results on the forum. I should imagine lots of people would be interested in the results on why not set up a thread and start posting :)

    I want to have a ultimate sim and use all the expansion packs. It may take longer than a year, but I want to master skills degrees etc. I want the sim to have a family, jobs as well.

    Good Luck with the venue building. There is something very satisfying about following the life of a sim from beginning to end :)

    @JoAnne65 your tomb looks well worth exploring :) and getting to generation 22 is really a major achievement.

    I wish all the luck to everyone here. ;)

    Last year I wanted to venture into CAW but never did. Still, don't know when I will. This year I'd like to focus on my LEPacy challenge like I have been. (Currently on Gen 8 with Gen 9 just born). I vowed a few years back to not start any other save file/challenge until I complete this challenge. I'm thinking I might break that rule and start a Super Sim challenge (S3 style) on the side pretty soon.

    Goo Luck in creating your super sim :) It doesn't matter how long it takes as long as you enjoy the process. There are no time limits on this game thank goodness !

    Good Luck with the challenge. Please let us know when you complete it :) The good thing about CAW is there are lots of instructions available and people in the CAW Tools section who can help.

    I'm going to post my first chapter of my story. I haven't done this since the Sims 2 when I was like 12 years old (I don't care for the Sims 4, have it but don't play, so I stick with the Sims 3). It's been over 10 years since doing a story so I'm excited

    It sounds like you have everything worked out to ensure you get the population of your colony just right.

    My plan for 2019 is simple...have one sim complete six degrees in University, the closest I have ever gotten is four... and to complete a ten-generation legacy. Only two things...for now. If I can think of anything else, I will revisit this thread and add to my answer!

    That's two quite sizeable projects :) Having never had a sim with six degrees I would be very interested to see how you get on and any tips you want to pass on to others who are wanting to play the University EP.

    Like I said in my previous posts, I had one sim get four degrees before dying from old age. This time around I plan on using every loophole I can...giving my sim the Athletic and Vegetarian traits usually helps them to live a bit longer. I don't use elixir...unless they learn how to mix it up on the chemistry set, and if they grow life fruit, they can eat that...sparingly. I have them learn the recipe for Ambrosia, but I rarely use it. I try to only allow my sim one bottle of elixir of life. So, they better have crammed a whole lot of learning in their lifespan! Death flowers come in handy too...If you give one to ole Grimmy...he might take pity on you and send you back to Young Adulthood. Or if, and I love this...If your sim was a loser in his previous life...he might have to relive it just for kicks! I have had that happen, only to have my sim finally die from electrocution!

    Is there a support group for Simming Addiction? I think I need it... :p
