Tree Dreaming

(no subject)

So, I'm not going to be doing any more updates on the Screwed legacy, because I have just purchased the new Seasons expansion pack for the Sims 2, and I've decided it's the only expansion I really want for the game. I've been pumped over the idea of sim seasons FOREVER, way back when I was playing the Sims 1, and I have been eagerly awaiting my tax return so I could finally see if sims can freeze to death in the snow.

ANYWAY, it was also really annoying when I decided that I didn't like sending sims to college or on dates, but all these wants would pop up about going to college or going on dates and they'd just go into aspirational failure because I didn't care enough to fulfill those wants. Makes for a tricky legacy challenge if you're trying to keep score, as every aspirational failure loses you a point. And also, I didn't have a score card going for this legacy.

PLUS, the game was running pretty slow with two expansion packs, and I didn't think it was worth it to throw a third that I think I'll really like (as this one does not involve sims leaving their friggin' house to go to pointless community lots, which I'm all for) on top of two that I'm only interested in for the extra items, especially when it will make the game run EVEN slower. Besides, I can buy those "stuff" packs if I reeeeeeeeeeeally want extra stuff.

SO KEEP YOUR EYES OUT FOR A NEW LEGACY CHALLENGE. A BETTER ONE. AN AWESOMER ONE. That I might actually finish, this time.
