I have a short chapter for you guys today, mainly because I wanted to go ahead and introduce this bug I had in a chapter before I continue playing. So, stay tuned for that. I'm hoping to get at least one more (maybe two) chapters out before school starts, so we'll see how that goes!
I made a few subtle changes to the Kennedy house, such as their floors and a few things like that, as well as adding a fish tank. The changes to the house completed Robin's mansion baron aspiration. I gave her Angling Ace as her next one.
Angling Ace is both a bad and good pick for a mermaid.
It's good because they can use their lure on the post which lets them catch fish they wouldn't be able to normally catch at their skill level.
But it's bad because they get a sad moodlet saying that they hurt their fish friend, which made me sad.
Dayna is pregnant again! Nathan wasn't at home though for her to tell him this time.
Thanks to being in a club gathering and her lure, Robin finished Angling Ace. I gave her Bodybuilder next.
Soren has completed his Whiz Kid aspiration. I forgot to write down what he got next.
Randall has completed artistic prodigy, next up will be rambunctious scamp.
Dayna reached the top of her career!
Just in time for baby number five to be born!
It's a girl! The number 24 rolls us the name Jocelyn, and since that's close to her grandma's name of Joselyn, I clicked roll one more time and that gave us Katherine.
Robin has completed the bodybuilder aspiration. I gave her renaissance sim next since she's close to what's needed for that.
She seems very proud of her new physique.
Randall has completed rambunctious scamp and will now be working on whiz kid.
At first, I was ecstatic about the fact that Katherine had the super dark skin. I've been DYING to have a sim born in game with this skintone. But later, I learned that this sim was not genetically related to her parents, because mermaid genetics are broken.
Anyway, I was able to use this cute hair and this cute top.
Tucker's time came unfortunately, and the grim reaper was here to take him away.
Luckily for Nathan, he was able to talk to the grim reaper about grilled cheese and complete his aspiration.
I hadn't learned about the mermaid genetics at this point, so Dayna is pregnant with baby number six.
Nathan does not seem pleased, or maybe he does. I don't know, I can't tell anymore.
Looks like I gave Soren artistic prodigy and he's completed that aspiration.
Just in time for his teenage birthday, too.
He aged very nicely, and despite knowing that he's not genetically like either parent, I think he looks like his Mom.
The next evening was Casey's birthday.
He's adorable, don't you think?
Randall completed Whiz Kid. I went ahead and gave him Social Butterfly, but I won't be working on it.
Baby number six is on the way!
A 99 rolls me the name Chris for our new baby boy.
Dayna is sporting a sunburn, but I personally think it looks like she got a dark tan instead.
The family swimming pool is starting to look more like a fish tank with all these mermaids.
Casey's toddler birthday has arrived!
Casey grew up into brown hair with blonde eyebrows (Katherine also had blonde eyebrows) and this is about where I realized mermaid genetics were broken. But I had no idea how to fix it or anything. So, I kept playing them.
I looooove this picture of Katherine in her kiddie pool.
Tonight is a double birthday! Randall will be becoming a teenager, and Katherine will be becoming a child.
Randall aged very nicely, I must say.
I was excited that I got to keep this shirt on Katherine as a child also.
The very next night it was Robin's young adult birthday.
She aged up beautifully, and honestly, I could've sworn she was related to her parents. But I guess not.
This is where I stopped playing to find a fix. The best fix I could find was using MCCC to "paste" a sim from CAS where I played with genetics with Dayna and Nathan.
So, let me reintroduce you to generation six.
She's still pretty, but not as pretty as before.
Soren's actual bodyshape is better than it was previously, but he definitely favors his Mom genetically.
I think Randall is my biggest disappointment genetically, but at least he got blue eyes from his father.
Casey definitely favors his mother.
Katherine is really pretty still, and I'm curious how she'll grow into her genetics.
Chris favors Dayna as well.
I haven't moved Robin out yet, because I wanted to get credit for finishing her aspiration first, which I successfully did. Since she's a spare I gave her beach life and plan to move her out when I load the game up next (which will be as soon as I finalize the posting for this chapter.)
That's where we'll leave this chapter. I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope to have another chapter out very soon! In the meantime, check in with me over at BoolProp or on my Twitch Stream!
The Kennedy Legacy is the first legacy that I created after purchasing the seasons expansion pack. It is also the first legacy I have kept score in for TS4.
Started: June 27, 2018
Upon the birth of a sim, I will be using a random number generator to generate a number between 1 and 100. I will then click the randomize name button that many times and select the name that it lands on. So, the name of all sims will be totally random.
Note: in the case of a duplicate name, I will click the dice an extra time and use the next unused name.
