Peregrine Legacy 2.0

114 images under the cut. Switched back to .png
Also: started following my own legacy rules for a challenge I'm creating. You can too! Just check out the Infinite Improbability Legacy Challenge or IIC. I'd love feedback forever. /spam

Peregrine Legacy 2.0
I thought I'd start with a picture of the shack Jean-Luc and Janeway moved in to. Pretty pathetic, yes?
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Also, if you remember, I discovered that Lenny had a daughter from a previous marriage. This is Jenni. She comes with Twinbrook and is less than exciting. Here she is seen to say "Ah, so I see you got father's cheekbones as well."

Tiberius didn't stay long.

Oh and incidentally, I switched to the Racket household for like a minute in order to fix Jenni's family tree with an imported and aged spawn of hers from a clean install, and Demo and Lenny got hitched, finally. I guess I was holding them back.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Finally! He was seriously like 91 days old!
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Lenny: |:[[
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Tiberius decides it's high time to begin dating... but  is perhaps less than enthused with Twinbrook's available pool of gentlemen.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Like mother like daughter, I suppose.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Back in the still rather crowded family estate, Data is contemplating kidnapping Nerys to study human behavior, but even the ACTUAL robot thinks he is crazy.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Good ol' dad, bogarting my fancy skilling table*.

*read: no more useful than an easel for my purposes.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Bored to death of Babies, reading, and Twinbrook dating, Tibs decides it is off to France with herself.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Where she wastes no time getting plastered.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Tiberius: Hm, maybe I should have read up on this first...
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Yep. Definitely should have. Also, I really hope she bathed first.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Now I know nothing about real wine making. But does it really involve a scary contraption like this?
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
While waiting for her experiment to come out, more boozing! (it same out horribly, P.S)
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Bored with the lack of attractive males also boozing it up, we give the basement a little look-over.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
And rob the Nectary blind!
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Tiberius: Oh, I found what might be a historically significant cellar full of ancient artifacts, let me root around in the dirt to make sure I don't leave any of this for historians, archeologists, or people who actually know it's value (beyond the few bucks I will make hawking it)!
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Back at base camp, finally, we discover a very strange pajama party.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Creepy Adventurer: See, it's all that teeth whitener, making us stupid. That's why I never brush.

Yeah, no.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Rather than go home with no profit, Tiberius resorts to digging through the locals' trash bins. And then it's time to return.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
As SOON as Twinbrook loaded, I heard chimes. At first I panicked, thinking, you know, somehow Tibs had gotten a magic travel baby. And then I saw this. CURSE YOU, STOP BREEDING!
(Thereafter I disabled 'near elder' pregnancy)
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Still studying the strangeness that is human creativity, I see.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
And Starla is talking to the food processor.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
So rather than stay in with the crazies, we dig through some domestic trash in pursuit of garbage to get us closer to that 100k lifetime goal.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Skilling up might also help with that.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
As would a job! Always the fashion-forward triplet, Tiberius tries to convey some of her tips to a local.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
It goes well.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
! ! This is Terry A. Something something, and his tattoos make Tiberius wibble.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Terry A: So I bust one side of the handcuffs, right, and I'm high-tailing it out of there-
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Tiberius: Can we have marriage now?
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Terry A: Sorry, I've got this girlfriend on the Internet...
Tiberius: minus minus.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Life goes on as normal for awhile. Tiberius nearly chokes to death on what looks suspiciously like a womrat from TS2.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
And contemplates her personal look. Sure, the outfit is a little out there, but what really bothers her is the hair. So it comes off and I, er, chose Demo's hair I think. Oops.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
As part of her job as a stylist, she accosts strangers and tells them they need a makeover. Sounds like good TV!
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
He is so not into his dapper geek look. Aw.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Random terrifying image of Nerys!
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
And back to sketching, sketching, sketching.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
In his old age, Lenny has developed the ability to actually look at babies!!
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Which is good, since his 60 year old wife is going to pop out another pretty soon.

And maybe murder Data. Maybe.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Speaking of Data, I got a pop-up saying he found a laundry gnome. Which is apparently this horrible thing.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Demo: Jesus Christ I'm too old for thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiS!
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Tiberius + Data: What, is this... are we doing this panic correctly?
Demo: I am going to go explode now kthanks.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
The little fellow being engulfed in her breasts is Riker, who is an Insane Virtuoso.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
In protest of moar babies that are not hers, Tiberius destroys a sink.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Lenny: Dear God: FEED ME!
Demo: What have I done.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Seems someone is getting more inept in his old age.
Demo: No, seriously, what was I thinking?
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
As we slowly attempt to woo Terry A. from his (I think dead!!) girlfriend.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
It certainly seems to be working.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Or not.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Look, it's not my fault. I can't even control you anymore.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Tiberius goes into the future in search of monies and comes back with nothin'. Aka: I unwisely kill time on her days off.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Data returns to his research on the human fear reaction.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Dunno, but isn't the outfit sort of darling? I will not lie: performing a billion makeovers is horrible. But the work clothes are cute, so.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Worst Dressed EA Sim Amy -whatsits gets a 'grown up' makeover and is okay with it, prompting a promotion (if I recall).
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
And these two keep up with their awkward not flirting. At least, I am hoping that is a 'sexy' face and not a 'I will murder you for staying young' face.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Tiberius: Haha, you. Oh, by the way, can I borrow a few bucks? Thanks!
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
As part of the worst documented toddler birthday ever, Nerys gets older.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
She's sort of a milder version of Tiberius, isn't she? I think she's pretty. And she Hates the Outdoors, but is both Good and Lucky.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Two birthdays in one day! Demo is super excited.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Demo: Wait, what is that feeling? Is it infertility? Aww man.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Lenny: Ew, woman! Put on some pants for once!
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Here is where I FINALLY had enough generation challenges to roll one for Tiberius: she got 'The Owner', which means she has to become a partner and then own at least one business in town, and also frequent it. So, as we're super poor from the new house, this tiny diner is it.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Sorry I just wanted to share how cute of an old lady Demo is.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Tolling in this Stylist career is getting old fast for both Tiberius and myself. But that 100k won't make itself.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Demo: And now my hair is like a poofy white cloud, with the sun peeking gently out from behind it.
Nerys: Uh, okay Mom.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Age is no limit to friendship, and as her father helpfully demonstrated, no barrier to keeping the legacy alive.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
That face might be, though. Eep!
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Deciding to check in on her little diner for lunch, Tiberius meets Jani Smith (who I will post at some point).
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
But they do not get on.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
At. All.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Seriously, she never went back to work! Also: Hi, actual rendering of Janeway! Long time no see. Incidentally, at this point Janeway is doing well in Politics and has dated and left one of the older Bakers. Lincoln, maybe?
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Tiberius: Hey, slightly older sister! AND CLEVER! CLEVERER, yes, you're so clever and--
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Tiberius: Can I borrow a few bucks? I, er, haven't had dinner and--
Janeway: Listen, Tiberius, I know you can eat here for free. Just take the money.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Baldy here apparently is less tolerant of mooching than everyone else in town.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Seriously, he's always kind of been an attentive father, but it's so much cuter when they get old.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Nerys: Man, this social studies ess--hm, what's that on the ceiling? 
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
A tiny congregation for the last of the first gen spawn.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
And we have another pink-haired green-eyed boy. It looks like he takes after his mother in most regards, genetically. Ah well, it isn't like he'll be heir.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
These three engage in a 'see who breaks first and eats the cake' contest (Which Tiberius has already lost).
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
And Nerys takes up painting. How lovely.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
It is nothing but birthdays around here! But this one is important, because Data will be LEAVING FOREVER.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
News which is particularly exciting for Demo, apparently.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
This is the only picture I take of him as a young adult before kicking him out. And I sent Starla with him, since I was feeling a little crowded. His final trait line-up is Childish, Light Sleeper, Vegetarian, Easily Impressed, and Virtuoso. I think his LTW was to become a Creature/Robot Crossbreeder.  Of course it is.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Work the next day is very exciting, when the boss decides to kick the bucket right then and there.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
This guy, who's name I don't remember, faints. He is, by the way, Jenni and Goodwin's son From Another Twinbrook and Imported Here, and thus Tib's nephew.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Since Terry A. (no, really, that is his first name) came to work in these, Tiberius offers to make him look cool again.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Eh, so-so.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Back at home, we do a little brother-sister bonding.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
And Tiberius begins to worry about whether she will ever have children of her own.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Demo is still CHDORLABLE.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
This guy likes his makeover.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
And I import a few more YA into town. Here is C-something Hardbottle, a male'd version of the VDSL founder, and, um... that guy.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
But her heart is still set on Terry A., apparently.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
We interupt this update to bring you breaking news!
(Hi, Grace Deens from simpairment !)
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Data has joined the Stylist career. Er.
(Also, looks like it a male'd version of Jani from earler)
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Back to business, Tiberius is either being lewd or asking Terry A. to dinner.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Oh, good.
Tiberius: Please please please let him be over his girlfriend!
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Terry A.: Man, I am so glad you asked me here, I am WICKED hungry!
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Tiberius: Well, first I just wanted to say how much you've come to mean to me lately.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Tiberius: And I was wondering if you maybe felt the same way?
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
*insert dramatic pause*
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Terry A.: Look kid, I like you, but I am committed to my girlfriend, I thought you understood that!
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Tiberius: *crushed face*
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Terry A: You're a real star.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Terry A: But enough is enough.

And then something more important than dealing with this came up. Tiberius had to rush home ASAP.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Because her father was on fire.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Oh God Oh God it's HORRIBLE.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
THIS IS THE WORST THING EVER DO SOMETHING, GUYS!
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Tiberius makes it home and tries to help out. (I, er, panicked and tried this before calling the fire department)
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
But it's really, really bad!
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Riker plays, oblivious to the horrors going on a few feet to his left.
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
And Grim comes. In a snazzy tweed blazar, and I am too upset to WTF .
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
Oh, yeah, THANKS TONS FOR SHOWING UP!
Peregrine Legacy 2.0
:(

Spare Updates: Jean-Luc is working at the Bistro, married Lucy Green  (the town thug) and then divorced her.
Janeway is working in Politics, dated Lincoln Baker, then broke up, and is now dating Hansan Morrow.
Data is working as a Stylist.
 
 
Current Mood: groggygroggy

D: BAD ENDING. Aw. :(

Your... Sims kinda scare the shit out of me. :D Just saying. Though I hope Tib will be able to produce some children soon.
Kimnibfrabbit on August 29th, 2010 06:06 pm (UTC)
I know what you mean. They're kind of crazy looking, right?

Here's hoping for Tiberius!
Judithuber_orange on August 29th, 2010 06:34 pm (UTC)
Oh, and I am totally checking out your legacy challenge.
Kimnibfrabbit on August 29th, 2010 06:40 pm (UTC)
Oh, cool! I was just, you know, already bored with "breed, rinse, repeat" and not entirely satisfied with the existing alternatives, so!
Judithuber_orange on August 30th, 2010 12:27 am (UTC)
I know what you mean. I've started a ton of my own challenges, but then I get lazy and stop.
pink77punkpink77punk on August 29th, 2010 09:40 pm (UTC)
Wow, what a lot of crazy going on here. Ol' Tiberius just can't catch a break in the dating department. Sorry Lenny got burned up.

Another great update. I'm going to check out the new legacy challenge.
Kimnibfrabbit on August 29th, 2010 09:51 pm (UTC)
Lenny getting burned alive is totally the most traumatic thing I've EVER had happen in a Sims game.

Thanks! Let me know what you think about the challenge.
pink77punkpink77punk on August 29th, 2010 09:58 pm (UTC)
replying to myself to add...
The challenge looks interesting, but I only have Sims 1 and 2, not 3. I think it could be made to work with sims 2, with some tweeting and force.

When/If I ever get Sims 3, I'll try it out.
Kimnibfrabbit on August 29th, 2010 11:01 pm (UTC)
Re: replying to myself to add...
Yeah, it's pretty TS3 specific and I know most people are still playing TS2 whether through preference or computer needs, but I haven't played in long enough to do the conversion myself. Thanks for giving it a look, though!
