Welcome back to the Vermachtnis Legacy. Heiress Veronica is about to
give birth to the 10th child of generation 9, which she and her wife
Ericka are getting 15,000 points for each. This is also the 20th
grandchild for Sasha, so she gets 30,000 points. Yay points and yay
Yes, I said ‘babies’. As expected, the lifetime perk has assured that
Veronica had her fifth set of twins, which actually gives us 11
babies total since Ericka had one while I was figuring out how the
pregnancies worked. Anyway, Veronica gives birth to number 10
and hands her off to Ericka while she works on 11.
On the left we have baby girl Yew, an S1 sim with brown eyes and
black hair, and her twin, baby boy Yates, who is S4 with black hair
and grey eyes. Fun fact: except for Yasmine, who was S2, every child
has taken after one of their mothers and been either S1 or S4.
Despite there being 11 opportunities for it to pop up, we saw no S3.
Like every single birth before, primary family Veronica and
secondary family Ericka are delighted with their offspring and
immediately start interacting with them.
Here’s Sasha smustling in the kitchen again, this time with her
brother and coworker Sammy, who just spent the night. It makes for
a fun little interlude between bits of family business.
The next bit of family business is that it’s time for the
toddlers, Yumi and Yuri, to grow up. Everyone in the house but
the babies is there to celebrate.
And here they are. Very cute, right? I wonder if Yuri will be
the last of the big-eyed sims for this generation (currently
there are 4 including him), or whether one of the babies will
get big eyes too. And I don’t want to leave Yumi out: she
may not have the family eyes, but she’s still very adorable.
These kids love telling secrets so much. It’s practically all
they do when left to their own devices.
Another day and another birthday is around the corner, so our
middle set of twins give each other a big hug before the party.
Besides Yantse and Yanichel’s birthday, it’s also birthday time for the
babies, Yew and Yates. I haven’t mentioned it before, but I had to add
an extra island section this generation because of all the two-sets-of-
twins birthdays we’ve had.
Yantse, on the left, is a grilled cheese/knowledge sim with the
LTW to eat 200 grilled cheese sandwiches, of course. Yanichel is
romance/family and wants to be a professional party guest.
Yew grew up to be very beautiful, though without big eyes. I think
she’s one of the cutest kids this generation. Her personality is
Yantse and Yanichel heard directly off to join their older
siblings at college while they wait for the younger ones to
grow up too.
Meanwhile, the birthday for the youngest and last set of twins
is not going so great. Yates refuses to grow up, even despite a
second cake, and while I was focusing on that, Yew fell asleep
sitting up in the center room since her bed is upstairs. Ericka is
very worried over this turn of events.
Third cake and Yates still doesn’t want to grow up. He did manage
to dirty his diaper while Veronica stands around with
him, pointedly not tossing him despite blowing out set after set of
With the fourth cake, whatever was holding Yates back finally lets
go, and he grows up just in time for Veronica to bathe her filthy
Now that he’s clean again, let’s take a look at him. Yep, definitely
another cutie. His personality is 9/2/10/8/8. Very extreme
personality, but I like the combination.
“Hmmm . . . I wonder if that alarm going off will be a problem for
me. Oh well, probably not! Now to go on with my thieving ways!”
Oh, god. This is the police officer that showed up. Horrific.
Interestingly, the (cute-ish) burglar is named Zaitrarrio Hanby, and
this cop is named Ralph Hanby. They look *nothing* alike, so
maybe they’re cousins? Go take care of your cousin, Ralph.
Ooh, double-fisted punch directly to the face. The good news is
that it really can’t make Ralph’s face any worse.
Ralph is very proud of himself for catching Zaitrarrio, despite the fact
that he let him steal a statue first.
The burglar alarm woke everyone up
quite early, but they were all too
rested up to go back to bed. The
moms spent this time to teach the
toddlers some skills, since they were
too exhausted after their birthday to
learn any last night.
Meanwhile, the kids play around.
Yuri and Yumi get to actually play
Punch U – Punch Me, which has
been forbidden in this house for
the last several generations. With
so many mean sims running
around, someone invariably got
punched really hard, so I always
canceled this interaction. Now
that the kids are middling to very
nice, they actually get to play.
I started realizing as I was playing Yew and Yates that some of the things
they did would be the last time those things happened in this
legacy, since it will end with the next birth, the 10th generation child.
Therefore, this is the last time toddlers will be taught to walk in the
This is the last time they’ll be taught to talk. And oh, how
sweet, both kidlets said “mommy” at the same time!
This is the last time a Vermachtnis will be pottytrained!
This is not the last time a Vermachtnis will tell a secret.
“Oh, we are so upset over this statue that we never noticed behind
the stairs before! How could he steal something that was so
important to us?! And how could the controller be so heartless as to
not replace it yet?!”
Geez, guys, I just forgot. I’ll get you a new statue so you can ignore it
Yew is definitely an animal person. She loves hugging Alison and manages
to ensnare her pretty often. Her other animal-loving trait requires a bit of
explanation. My game doesn’t show the fish in aquariums, so I bought
one just for decoration for Hayden and Sasha’s room. Unfortunately, every
so often someone decides to restock it, then no one feeds them and I
don’t even know they’re in there. Luckily, the maid cleans it so it never
brings down the room score for too long. However, Yew actually rolled a
fear of the fish dying, which I have never seen before, so we had to
actually feed the invisible fish until she became a child and stopped rolling
that fear. Weird.
Last time parents will make best friends with their progeny!
Last time twins will make best friends at the play table. Since
there’s so many of them and they’re so spread out, not all of the
kids are friends with each other, so this will not be the last time
Vermachtnis kids make friends with their siblings, as that will
come later, when they’re all in college and I’m playing a few of
Still not the last time a secret will be told.
Yumi and Yuri are really, really upset about the burglary. I mean, look
at that face. Yumi is one disgruntled kid!
Sasha and Hayden get to retire, as they are quite old. Since all
the kids are born and are almost all children or older, I won’t be
giving them any more elixir. At least this will pave the way for
Ericka to become head of the SCIA without stepping on Sasha’s
Last time kids will maximize their mechanical skill at the play
table, even though I didn’t actually capture a picture of that
Still not the last secrets. I have so many pictures of secrets
being told. Oddly, most of the secrets told by these two are
about Yantse, but nothing special happened to her while she
was growing up, so I can’t even fathom what the appeal is.
This is not a spot that I would pick to cuddle in, especially since it’s
giving Ericka a snow diaper, but they seem to be enjoying
Ericka heads off to her first day in the intelligence
career, appropriately thinking about being a fortune sim.
Birthday time for Yew and Yates. This will be the last toddler-to-
child birthday in the legacy!
For some reason, these two have
major problems with birthdays.
Although they both successfully
had the candles blown out on their
cakes and were set down, Yew
decided she was too tired (again!)
to actually spin and grow up.
Meanwhile, Yates grew up just
fine, so there was a short
amount of time where he was
older than his twin.
I finally got Yew to grow up, and she continues to be very
lovely. Both of the kids are super cute. All of the kids are
super cute, in fact. I’m really happy with this bunch of kids.
I’ve decided that not all of the kids will
be eligible for heir. I’ll explain my
criteria later, but for now I’ll just say
that Yuri is the only one of the four left
in the house eligible for heir. That
means that Yumi, Yew, and Yates get to
goof off because it isn’t as important
that they get skills and I was really
tired at this point in the generation.
Yuri still has to study, however.
Unfortunately, this is the last time Sasha will cheat at chess, but it’s
not because she gave up the habit.
No, Sasha’s time has come, right when Veronica was about to take
the headmaster on a tour to get the last four kids into private
school. Grimmie shows up on the porch next to Sasha.
Sasha has been platinum
forever, so she of course gets
a great sendoff. Veronica is
still attempting to give the
tour so she ran off, but the
kids all came to see their
grandma, as you can just
barely see in the bottom
Unfortunately, this somehow glitched the headmaster and made
him incapable of doing anything or being interacted with. I had to
reset him, which made both him and the scenario disappear.
Sasha takes her leave for the Vermachtnis Cemetery.
Goodbye, Sasha. You were a great heiress and a lot of fun to play.
On the same night that the former head of the SCIA dies, Ericka
comes home as the new head. Coincidence or conspiracy?
Anyway, Ericka has reached her second LTW. Her third is to be a Hall
of Famer, but she’s about to age up, so it won’t matter because it
wasn’t available before she aged.
Most of the family finds comfort in
the wake of the loss of Sasha in
spending time with their loved
ones, but poor Hayden roams the
house alone, thinking of his wife.
Luckily, he doesn’t have to grieve for too long. Hayden leaves us the
very next day after Sasha, and he too gets a platinum sendoff. But
where’s the family?
Well, Hayden had to die at the exact moment that everyone else
was locked in to birthday having/watching, so everyone except
Alison missed it.
Veronica and Ericka make lovely elders, in my opinion. Part of it is
the skins I use, which don’t have much change for elders, but they
“Can you believe this is the last elder birthday in this legacy? And
can you believe that we’re finally old and our baby-making days are
behind us? It’s all a little weird.”
The next day, Veronica welcomes the headmaster over again for
another attempt at getting the kids into private school. This is the
last chance for Yumi and Yuri, as they are set to grow up this night.
Veronica is very good at schmoozing because she’s so nice that she
never rejects topics. She regales the headmaster with a tale of her
family’s alien heritage, and he’s so impressed that he lets all four
children into the school. Fortune sim Ericka is ecstatic.
After he leaves, it’s birthday time for Yumi and Yuri. Grow up
And they did! Yumi is romance/popularity with a LTW to
woohoo 20 sims. Yuri is grilled cheese/romance with the
standard LTW to eat 200 grilled cheese sandwiches.
Interestingly, Yuri is the 3rd grilled cheese sim in this
generation. I wonder why I’m rolling so many.
They immediately head off to college. Yuri and Yumi were
accepted into private school, though they never attended, and
that’s good enough for me. We just have to get Yew and Yates to
teens, and then it’ll be on to the next generation.
Oh, whoops. I forgot to send Hayden to the cemetery, so his urn sat
around in the upstairs hall for a few days. Bye, Hayden. You were a
great husband to Sasha and father to your kids. I don’t know why you
changed back into your professor uniform in death, but at least
you’re comfortable in it, I guess.
Unless something goes horribly awry, these will be the last deaths
in the legacy and the last shot of the graveyard. As always, I like to
protest that one of the plain graves was from a platinum romance
sim that just had to be difficult like that.
Now that’s it’s just the two kids
left, I started playing on fast speed a
lot more, especially since I wasn’t
making them study much.
They do still have to go to school
and wear their cute
uniforms, though. Does it bother
anyone besides me that the
plaids don’t match between boys
and girls? Unless they’re going to
different private schools, one for
each gender, in which case it kind
of makes sense. Hmm.
Even on fast speed and with little supervision, Ericka and
Veronica spend nearly all their time together.
Yew and Yates have picked up the habit of telling secrets
about Yantse. What did she ever do to you guys? And
what secret does she have that’s so interesting?
Of course, they’ll tell secrets about pretty much anybody.
Alison got old. She looks the same as before. I can’t even really tell if
she got more white fur. Oh well.
Ericka does a little reflection. She’s been a great addition to the family.
Veronica is such a character. She makes sure to encourage the
kids to have lots and lots of babies when they’re adults. Now
that she’s an elder, she has the have 20 grandchildren want
locked. She also plays drums a lot, and she still makes the best
faces with those big eyes.
Last child hug of the legacy! It’s birthday time!
Since everyone else has grown up and moved out, it’s a small little
Here’s the very beautiful Yew and handsome Yates, who is
doing his owl impression for us. Yew is romance/grilled
cheese (there’s grilled cheese again! What’s up with
that, die?) and she wants 20 lovers. Yates is
fortune/knowledge and he wants to be a criminal
mastermind like Ericka was.
Yates rolled some very interesting fears upon becoming a teenager. He had a
close-ish brush with the skunk when he was a kid. As soon as he got off the
bus, he had the action in his queue to “stroke skunk” and you better believe I
canceled that fast. Apparently, despite the fact that nothing happened, that
made an impression on him. He is scared of being sprayed by a skunk
(yeah, obviously), he is afraid of Yew being sprayed by a skunk (sure, he cares
about her), and he is also scared of Zaitrarrio Hanby the burglar being sprayed
by a skunk. WTF? He hates Zaitrarrio. Why would he care if he were sprayed?
Regardless, it’s time to bundle Yew and Yates off to college. As the
eleventh kid leaves the house, Veronica has just one question: “So, can
I have more babies now?”
No. No, you cannot.
Thanks for reading and check back next time to see all 11 kids in
college and how we’re going to pick the heir. Visit SiMania and say hi!
