I have a few weeks before I go back to work, so I've had some time to play which means I was able to get another chapter ready for you guys. I also have about half of another chapter ready now as well, so hopefully I'll be able to get that out soon.
I'm also planning to start an oceanic legacy soon as well, so stay tuned for that!
While looking in the family's household inventory, I found this sculpture. It was a reward for defeating the mother plant. Super cool. I'm not happy with the placement in the house, but it'll work for now.
Joanne has completed her artistic prodigy aspiration, I gave her rambunctious scamp next.
While posing for a paparazzi, the grim reaper came for Eve! While I'm sad to see her go, it'll be nice not having the paparazzi here all the time and having her stop what she's doing to go pose for them.
It's time for our little heiress to become a child.
She's super pretty, and coincidentally, her childhood aspiration and trait is the same as her Great-Grandma Hailey.
To celebrate her birthday, I sent Joselyn and Dayna to the beach to explore some of the new things in the pack.
While snorkeling, a dolphin came up to check Joselyn out. Super cool.
When I first took this photo, I was taking it to talk about the crazy lady mopping the beach. But then I noticed the red thing near the sponge. Turns out, Dayna here had "made a mess" and this lady was cleaning up after her. (though, to be fair, I think the ocean would've cleaned it up just fine.)
Meet Mochi, the family's new cat.
I recently adopted a kitten in real life, and I really wanted a siamese but someone adopted her before I got there. So, I got a russian blue (not purebred though) instead. Her name is Gracie and she's really cute.
Anyway, since I couldn't have a siamese, I let the family adopt Mochi who is a Colorpoint Siamese.
She aged into an adult cat soon after we got her, but I didn't feel like her fur was fluffy enough, so I did change it in the mirror. However, I forgot to take a picture after.
Her personality: curious, fluffy, aloof.
The fluffy trait is why I made her more fluffy, by the way.
Since Joselyn's new aspiration was related to Island Living, she threw a Kava Party as one of her objectives.
Why do you look so glum, Darrius? Is it because your eyebrows don't match?
No, I just got an A on my report card and finished my aspiration.
Oh...well, why don't you work on artistic prodigy for now.
Time for Allan to become an elder!
He's still extremely handsome, I'm very pleased with him.
More work on Joselyn's beach life aspiration.
It's time for our only boy from this generation (so weird to say after last generation being filled with boys) to become a teenager.
Darrius aged up nicely, and definitely favors his father.
Joanne has completed her rambunctious scamp aspiration and will be working on Whiz Kid next.
So, this picture is for two reasons:
1. I forgot I gave Joselyn full body freckles, but they're really noticeable in this outfit.
2. This is probably one of her best costumes yet lol.
This is the set that goes along with it.
Dayna has completed artistic prodigy and will be working on rambunctious scamp next.
Joselyn has been cave exploring in Sulani. Pretty cool. Though, I wish I could go through to a hidden area like in other packs. Missed opportunity, in my opinion.
It's time for Joanne to become a teenager, and to fix those eyebrows.
Joanne is still very pretty, but holy cow her lips got big. Thankfully, they're not disproportionate to her face.
Dayna has met her first mermaid (albeit, a very creepy looking mermaid) while swimming at the beach.
Dayna: Cool! I want to be a mermaid too, how do I become one?
Merman: You have to explore caves to find mermadic kelp, then you eat it and *poof* mermaid.
Dayna: Cool, thanks merman!
Joselyn has completed her beach life aspiration by falling asleep on a beach float.
I gave her Nerd Brain next because I needed some instant upgrades in the house.
Dayna has completed rambunctious scamp and will be working on whiz kid next.
Joselyn has reached the top of the actress career path!
Dayna quickly finished whiz kid, so I gave her social butterfly next but then neglected it because I really hate that aspiration.
Allan is set to die soon, and tonight is his wife's birthday, so I had him drink a potion of youth to keep him around a little longer.
After getting home from work, it's time for Joselyn's birthday.
She aged very nicely, though I'll admit, I didn't realize it wasn't her elder birthday yet. I had forgotten that I had her get started on kids very quickly after what happened with her generation.
For Thanksgiving, I was actually able to get the whole family to sit down and share a tofurkey without any hassle. Go me!
It's time for our heiress to become a teenager.
She aged wonderfully, Her lips are fairly large as well, but I don't think they're as noticeable on her.
A side-by-side comparison of this generation. While there wasn't a ton of variety, I do think they all turned out good looking.
Dayna: yes, this must be the cave that strange man told me about.
Uh, what strange man?
Dayna: the mermaid from when I was a kid, remember?
Oh right. Be careful, Dayna. He could be lying, he seemed...off.
Dayna: I wonder if this is the mermadic kelp. Only one way to find out! Please let this be it. Hmm, I really want to go swimming right now.
OMG your face! What's wrong with it!
*turns out that the mod I had that removed the EA default lashes was trying to remove hers, and in mermaid form it removed her whole face.
As you can see, we've fixed that now and she's good as new. We have our first mermaid in the family!
Allan has become an officer in the military career path, time for him to retire.
Darrius completed his painter extraordinaire aspiration. I gave him bodybuilder next because he always seemed to be drawn to working out when he wasn't painting.
Joselyn completed her nerd brain aspiration, I gave her fabulously wealthy next.
It's time for Darrius' young adult birthday.
His face seems much more proportioned as an adult, he's very handsome.
Darrius: Goodbye Dad, I love you.
Allan: goodbye son, I hope you have a good life.
After playing outside, Mochi came in like this. After taking her to the vet she was diagnosed with frozen mange.
Joanne's teen birthday arrived quite quickly after Darrius.
She's very beautiful, she has great genetics.
Joanne hugged her sister goodbye, while her parents over looked. Well, father I guess I should say since Joselyn was too interested in the clay bunny she just made.
20 potions of youth means I have completed the Deviance category of my scoresheet!
Allan's time came very quickly despite the potion of youth. I also noticed that he pat the floor before he laid down. I've never noticed that before, but it made it extra sad.
Okay guys, meet Tucker. I was trying to find a cat to breed Mochi with, and I wasn't going to get a kitten but then I saw him and I couldn't resist. LOOK AT THOSE EARS.
Seriously, how cute is this kitten. Definitely one of the cutest ones I've seen in game.
Joselyn helps Dayna with her homework while Mochi and Tucker supervise.
Seriously, look how cute!
Tucker grew into an adult cat, and while he's not as cute as he was as a baby, he's still adorable.
Mochi became an elder, so it looks like no kittens will be made in this house.
It's time for Dayna to become a young adult.
She's absolutely stunning. I'm really glad she's the heiress, even if I am tired of the black hair.
Dayna even headed to the beach to go swimming for a little while where she got to play with, name, and feed a dolphin. The perks of being a mermaid.
Also, fun fact, in the relationship panel it shows the dolphin as being her soulmate and I thought that was really cool.
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
Finished: April 27, 2020
The family tree for the main legacy line can be found by clicking here.
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.
