The Collins Legacy: Chapter TwoPresentation Transcript
The Collins Legacy Chapter 2
Welcome back to the Collins legacy! This family is proving to be a lot of fun to play, which is why I have the second chapter out so quickly! I hope you enjoy it.
I decided I wanted the extra point, so I had Poppy start out with an extreme start. All she can afford was a bed, chair, toilet, and shower.
I had Poppy keep all of her newspapers from when she was in college, an idea I took from a friend of mine at SiMania – Thinmintsim. Unfortunately, nothing in the architecture career showed up in any of them.
To fill her fun bar, and to earn her some money, I had Poppy dig for treasure. After all, it gets a bit boring living on a lawn by yourself. It’d only been three days but she couldn’t wait for Sunday evening to come so she could have Jess move in with her.
Sunday finally arrived and once 6pm hit, Poppy invited Jess over and asked him to move in.
Jess looked much better after a quick trip to the mirror. And as you can tell, the couple now have a “house.” If you can call a 10x10 box a house. But, it’ll get better as they earn more money, that’s for sure. Jess is a fortune sim with a lifetime want to become Business Tycoon. He has a personality of 6/5/8/3/3.
After Jess and Poppy took a look around their new box, Poppy proposed to Jess since she didn’t do it when they were in college. Jess of course accepted the proposal.
The couple were immediately married following their engagement.
Now that they were married, the couple promptly went into their bedroom to try for a child.
It doesn’t take very long before Poppy begins showing her first bump of her pregnancy. I might as well tell you now, the naming theme of this legacy is going to be television shows. Each generation will be named after a different show that I watch.
The next evening while making herself a salad for dinner, Poppy gets her next belly bump, just one more day until the second generation arrives!
OMG MY FIRST BURGLAR! Yes, I’ve had this game since it came out, and the only time I had a burglar, the game crashed when he came onto the lot so I never got the memory of it. But I’m excited I finally got a burglar – and glad I installed an alarm.
Unfortunately though, we got a lousy cop and the burglar got away.
A few short hours after the burglar got away, Poppy goes into labor. This generation is going to be named after my current favorite show, NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service).
Meet baby girl Abby* with blonde hair, skintone one, and the family custom brown eyes. *In NCIS Abby Sciuto is the team’s forensic specialist/lab technician. She’s gothand can usually be seen wearing her hair in pigtails. She has an obsession for the drink Caf-Pow!
And baby boy Tim* with blonde hair, brown eyes, and skintone two. *In NCIS Timothy McGee is the team’s computer geek, and even though he’s no longer the newest addition to the team, DiNozzo, the senior field agent, still calls him ‘Probie.’
Since Poppy had only gotten up to her silver badge in flower arranging while she was in college, I had her work on getting her gold badge so she could put snapdragons in the infant’s room that way they wouldn’t need any attention except maybe one or two diaper changes before they grow up.
Poppy is a good Mom and is always tucking in her little ones, even though they don’t need any attention due to the snapdragon.
Soon the twins’ birthday arrives!
Little Abby ages into quite the cutie pie. She has a personality of 6/5/8/4/9.
And little Tim aged up into a handsome young boy too. He has a personality of 6/5/8/6/3.
With the twins now toddlers, Poppy and Jess get started on their next child.
This is still definitely one of my favorite AL interactions. These guys are so adorable.
It doesn’t take very long before poppy gets her first belly bump.
Since all she really did in between getting her first bump and her second bump was teach Abby her toddler skills, there aren’t any pictures. And thus, she now has her second baby bump.
Soon it’s time for the twins to become children. I can’t believe how quickly they grow up.
Abby aged wonderfully, don’t you agree?
And so did Tim. I think he might be my favorite right now, though I’m not positive yet since none of the other children have been born yet.
I love how different these guys look. Especially since they aren’t a typical face one sim and yet they’re still adorable.
After the kids left for school, Poppy goes into labor with her third child.
Meet baby girl Ziva* with red hair, brown eyes, and skintone two. *In NCIS, Ziva David (pronounced duh-veed as she often tells people) is the newest member of Gibbs’ team and she’s an Israeli Mossad trained assassin. She’s also the sister to the man who killed Kate Todd.
Ziva’s birthday arrives quickly, and I promise she has red hair. The hair she aged into though is missing its mesh, so it went blonde apparently.
Ziva aged into an adorable little girl, and is my favorite now. She has a personality of 10/10/9/3/1. So she’s neat, outgoing, active, serious, and grouchy.
I originally wasn’t going to have these guys have more than three children, but I really want another little boy named Tony.
I love that toddler’s and children can play together on the activity table, it helps with sibling relationships, which helps keep toddlers and children happy.
Looks like Poppy’s third pregnancy is going to be a pukey one.
Just like her older siblings, Ziva is going to be taught all three of her toddler skills. So far she’s learned two.
As you can see, Poppy has gotten her first bump of her third pregnancy.
Abby has maxed out her mechanical skill.
Ziva is definitely my favorite. She’s so cute, look at her. Plus her parents spoil her.
Poppy now has her second baby bump, just one more day before the baby arrives! I’m excited, I hope we get a little boy.
Ziva’s birthday quickly arrives, and soon Poppy is bringing her up to her birthday cake.
Ziva is such a little cutie. I love her.
She’s so spoiled too, and she’s a Mommy’s girl. But I still love her regardless.
Since I don’t think Poppy is going to be able to have any more children after this pregnancy, I decided to make her eat cheesecake to increase the chances of her having a little boy.
Looks like I did it just in time because she only had a few bites of it before going into labor.
Meet baby girl Jenny* who appears to be a clone of Ziva at the moment – red hair, brown eyes, skintone two. *In NCIS, Director Jenny Shepardused to be partners with Gibbs and they used to have a romance. Jenny’s a bit stubborn just like Gibbs is which has a great deal to do with why she gets killed.
And baby girl Kate* with blonde hair, brown eyes, and skintone three. *In NCIS Caitlin “Kate” Todd used to protect the President of the US, but after working a case with Gibbs and DiNozzo, she begins working with Gibbs and Tony at NCIS.
I really wish Maxis hadn’t cut these infant toys out of AL. They’re so adorable. (You can find them at MATY)
I decided to go ahead and have them try for a baby since it showed up as an available option. I tried twice, but no lullaby. And when I tried using boolprop to “Simulate Genetic Merger” between the two, the option didn’t show up. So I’m assuming Poppy is too old to have more children. I guess that means I won’t be getting a Tony.
To my surprise though, Poppy gets a baby bump the next morning after puking in the toilet. I guess the lullaby glitched. But hopefully this baby is a boy.
That evening it’s time for Abby and Tim to become teenagers! I can’t believe how quickly they grow up.
Abby aged wonderfully and is a fortune sim with a lifetime want to earn $100k – totally doable if she gets a job in the natural science career track!
Tim also aged nicely and he rolled family with a lifetime want to have 6 grandchildren. Which is also very easy. Oh, and Tim has elf ears. I forgot to mention that when he became a toddler.
That night it’s also the younger set of twins’ birthday, I let Tim and Abby do the honors of bringing them to their birthday cake.
Just like I suspected, Jenny is a clone of Ziva. Luckily though different hair makes her look different, but she still has the same personality of 10/10/9/3/1. And even though she might look different due to her hairstyle, she’s still a clone.
Kate aged nicely though. She has the same personality of her Dad – 6/5/8/3/3.
The next afternoon, Poppy gets her second belly bump. Only one more day until we hopefully get another baby boy!
It doesn’t take very long for the 25 hours between her second bump and labor to pass, and so soon Poppy giving birth!
It’s another baby girl, but I named her Tony* anyway. She looks like a clone of Ziva. *In NCIS Anthony DiNozzo is a senior field agent, putting him just below Gibbs who is the team boss. Tony has only ever been in love once, and she was an undercover assignment. Tony is known for being with many different girls, Jeanne being the only one we see or hear of more than once.
Abby is now an overachiever, which means a point for me and more scholarships for her.
The next evening her twin brother Tim becomes an overachiever as well.
They look so different, but they’re still adorable!
I can’t believe it’s already time for Jenny and Kate to become children.
Jenny ages wonderfully, but that wasn’t a surprise since she’s identical to Ziva. But she’s still gorgeous regardless of being a clone.
Kate is also quite the little cutie pie. I forgot to mention this before, but Kate has elf ears!
The twins get along very well even though they are pretty different from each other.
It’s also little Tony’s birthday too!
She’s a clone of Ziva and Jenny just like I suspected, making her personality 10/10/9/3/1. She aged into this hair, and I just really liked it on her so I kept it.
The next evening it’s time for our lovely founder to become an elder.
Poppy aged into quite a nice looking elder, don’t you agree?
I decided to go ahead and send Abby and Tim off to college since I didn’t really need them on the lot to help out anymore since Tony was a toddler and the younger twins were children now.
It seems like there’s a birthday here almost every night! Anyway, it’s now time for Ziva to become a teenager.
Ziva aged into an extremely stunning teenager. She rolled pleasure with a lifetime want to become professional party guest.
Poppy has finally become city planner, which means she is now permaplatinum.
See what I mean? It’s always birthday time around here!
Tony is stunning. She’s the only kid I didn’t give freckles too, which makes her look different from her “clones.”
All the money these guys earn goes to the house. And it’s finally starting to look good. It’s very asymmetrical, but I love it regardless. I’m actually quite proud of it. But I still might move these guys into a new house after the heir/ess is out of college.
Jess has reached the top of the business career track, completing his lifetime want and making him permaplatinum as well.
Ziva is now an overachiever!
Since she’s now an overachiever, I went ahead and sent her off to college to join her older siblings.
Jenny and Kate wanted to adopt a puppy, so I finally caved and allowed them to adopt one.
This is Jethro. Named after the dog Abby convince Tim to keep on NCIS. Who was named after Leroy Jethro Gibbs.
Tony however wanted a bird and since I got the twins a puppy, I decided I’d let Tony get her bird. So everyone, meet Leroythe bird, who is also named after Leroy Jethro Gibbs.
Since I happened to get the puppy I got for the McMania’s when I played them, I knew it wouldn’t be a puppy for long, which is the main reason I chose this one. So soon Jethro aged into an adult dog.
I thought it was cute that Jenny and Kate were becoming teenagers on the same day that their puppy became an adult dog.
Jenny is stunning. She’s a family sim with a lifetime want to reach her golden anniversary.
Kate is also very pretty. She’s a popularity sim with a lifetime want to become captain hero.
Apparently Jenny maxed out her logic skill when she was a child and I didn’t notice.
Luckily, I noticed when Kate maxed out her logic skill!
And I also noticed when Tony maxed hers out too.
Jess’ birthday arrived before I knew it, and soon he was going to be joining his wife in elderhood.
He aged nicely and he makes a handsome elder.
I didn’t plan it, but these guys have matching elder outfits! Which I find very cute because I didn’t do it on purpose. But these two are a very cute elder couple.
Tony received the genie lamp. Though I’m not sure why it went to her, but she’s the one that got the memory for it.
Time for the last birthday of the chapter – Tony!
Tony aged beautifully and rolled knowledge. Her lifetime want is to become criminal mastermind.
Kate is now an overachiever!
And Jenny is an overachiever now as well.
Now that they’re both overachievers, I had the twins move to college.
Tony has maxed out cleaning.
Instead of becoming an overachiever like all five of her siblings, Tony loses her job due to a bad chance card.
So rather than having her find another job and getting her to be an overachiever, I just went ahead and sent her off to college to join her siblings.
With no more kids left in the house, Poppy and Jess do what any other couple with privacy would do – woohoo! I hope you enjoyed the chapter. Now head on to the next few slides for the heir poll, and then the final slide for my score!
