Somewhere, in the middle of nowhere... well, in Wyrmville, but it is actually kind of nowhere at the moment... A man and his cat arrive at an empty lot- this can only mean one thing. It's a legacy!
Joe: Come on, Andromeda. It isn't that bad. There are buildings and there will be other Sims and pets. Just wait until Frostwyrm boolpropped them. We will have a fantastic time. Meet Joe Dice, the founder. He is what CAS came up with first... he later rolled Knowledge Aspiration and got Family as his secondary Aspiration. His cat Andromeda was also chosen by rolling several dice.
Like almost every legacy, they have all they need in the beginning- but nothing more. As Joe is sleeping in a tent, he has about 1,000 Simoleons left for everything I forgot to give him- like a bookshelf or a phone.
Joe starts digging for treasures. Lawn-living is boring, uncomfortable and he wouldn't want to sleep in the tent when winter starts...
Joe: Why Education career? You know, I want to top the Adventure career. Me: Well, you want to get off the lawn, won't you? Keep looking for a job in the Adventure career, if one comes up, you may take it. Until then, stay with Education.
Betsy Powell from the local garden-club checks in... I had Joe check her out, they only share one bolt (Joe's turn ons are make-up and good logic skills, his turn-off are hats). So she is not really interesting.
As Betsy is no spouse material, Joe goes to work.
While Joe is working we can enjoy the cute Andromeda doing nothing.
After returning with a promotion to Teacher's Aide, Joe meets Harold Hogan, who seems to have Alien genes. I am using a mod that randomizes every facetemplate, including the Alien one. Joe and Harold became friends only a few hours after they met.
My game seems to like the Alien template... Well, I don't mind. It's kind of cute... too bad I didn't decide on an Uglacy... and too bad it's a Patriarchy.
Joe found a Treasure Chest on his first night of digging. Yay for 5,000 Simoleons out of nowhere.
Joe: I wonder if there is a painting in it... Me: Yes, Joe, of course. People always stuff paintings into chests and bury them somewhere... Let us just sell the chest and be happy with the money.
After selling the Treasure Chest, Joe calls it a day. It seems like he won't have to sleep in the tent for a long time.
Argh. Stupid strays are eating Andromeda's food. We need a fence... or at least a house.
Joe: If you were a dog, you could help me with digging for treasures... But I love you as a cat, too.
Joe's days are hard. Getting to work in the morning and digging for treasures in the evening until he cannot stand anymore.
And skilling in the rain, again. The weather is horrible... something needs to be done.
Andromeda's lazy days are over. She has a job in the security business now.
Here she is leaving for her first day at work.
While Andromeda is at her pet job, she and Joe got a better place to live in. It is still small, but it has a roof...
...And it also has several rooms. No more skilling in the rain.
Jus a shot of Andromeda being cute and enjoying her new home.
It's Friday already... and we have two legacy founders being lazy and lonely. Joe isn't even interested in other Sims... he has no social wishes, except for cuddeling and playing with Andromeda. The words „Alien Abduction“ are sneaking into my mind.
There is still no job in the Adventure career.
They have a reason to celebrate- Joe found another Treasure Chest. It seems he has settled on a rich plot of land.
Finally, a job in the adventure career is oben. Joe takes his chance, of course.
The first winter in Wyrmville. I had tears in my eyes. Winter and I'm still motivated. I haven't experienced this for 2 years!
Joe is still trying to make friends with Connie, but he fails. However, he is best friends with the alien-faced townie Harold Hogan. I really have a thing for Harold and think about making him playable so that he can have his own family- or he will be married in as soon as possible.
It's too cute how the cats come running out of the house to watch Joe getting kicked out of the UFO.
Me: How are you, Joe? Joe: Don't ask! My butt hurts and I feel strange... I've been abducted by aliens! I thought it was a joke that you could summon them with a flashlight and a telescope!
Just a random picture of Joe cooking. I somehow like it... Well, I somehow like Joe, even if he doesn't behave like a sim with knowledge aspiration. He behaves like a sim without any aspiration and I sometimes think of him as a bit slow... but I really like him. He is so boring that he is fascinating ;)
When Joe put Christine on the floor I suddenly realized that I have triplets&quads installed. Oh dear!
Meet Leonard. As he is the first born son, he is most likely the heir.
Two babys on the floor... this can only mean...
...there is at least a third one. Welcome, Nyota. Did someone figure out my naming-scheme? They're all characters from the original Star Trek Series. Leonard McCoy, Nyota Uhura and Christine Chapel.
Luckily, a nursery could be builded pretty quickly. Three beds in space-design.
The cats got their own room, too. They're expecting kittens.
This is where I leave you for now. The triplets were born on friday, week 2, the first day of spring. *gets teary eyes again* I decided to download some default-replacements, so my sims will look slightly different next time. I hope it wasn't too crappy to read...
