Chapter 4: Double or Nothing

01-01-15_7-59 PMAfter getting married, Alec and Ava spent some time on their own skilling; Ava at her easel and Alec at the gym. His traits are Bookworm, Childish, and Active with the Bodybuilder aspiration. I had him join the Athlete career to get some money, although Ava actually maxed out her painting skill so she’s been steadily earning anywhere from $200-2,000 dollars a day. She’s on the last task of her aspiration too: complete 5 masterpieces.

01-01-15_8-12 PMAva found out that she was pregnant after the wedding. My first pregnant sim in TS4! 😀 It’s pretty neat that you can quickly find out whether or not Try for Baby worked. In the past I usually sped through the, uh, lovemaking.. so I missed the little jingle pretty often.

Chapter 3: First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage

Ava went to the gallery first thing the next day for some inspiration for her work. She is now at level 7 painting skill and just painted her first two masterpieces! I saved the first one (but forgot to take a photo of it, oops) so she can display it in her future home.

Ava also completed two more emotional paintings: Confident and Flirty. That just leaves three more emotional paintings to do: Angry, Sad, and Focused. Since Ava has the cheerful trait I’ve yet to see Ava in any negative emotional state other than uncomfortable (which happens almost anytime I send her to a public lot with lots of strangers).

Chapter 1: Let’s Paint the Scene

Welcome to The Pink Puffball Legacy! Ten generations of what will hopefully be pink hair and silly shenanigans.

In my introduction post I showed off our founder, Ava Puffball, an artistic sim who aspires to be a great painter.

12-28-14_1-55 PMI have to say, I’m finding the default hairstyles for women to be vastly improved from the other base games. Ava’s traits are muser, creative, cheerful, and loner.

12-28-14_2-11 PMAfter leaving art school, Ava arrived at the site of her new home in Willow Creek with nothing but a knight in shining armor that she had stolen a few years back at a fraternity party. Realizing that she needed a place to sleep, she counted up the simoleons stuffed in her pocket and purchased a few necessities.

Introduction to The Pink Puffball Legacy

Hey there peeps, welcome to my first ever attempt at a legacy challenge. I’ve been simming for the past ten years, and while I’ve read plenty of Sims challenge stories I’ve always been too lazy afraid to commit myself to one. I think I’ve managed to make it through three generations at most in a family, so this is something completely exciting to me!

Meet Ava Puffball!

Here's our founder for the Pink Puffball legacy, Ava.

Here’s our founder for the Pink Puffball legacy, Ava.

Ava has found herself fresh out of art school ready to take on the world with the little money that she has after miraculously paying off all of her student loans. She won the lottery, just go with it.. Anyway! Here’s her fast facts:

Appearance: Neon pink hair, dark brown eyes, and a thin build. Hopefully the crop top and booty shorts will help her reel in a lover.

Aspiration: Painter Extraordinaire.

Traits: Muser (from aspiration), Creative, Cheerful, and Loner.

I haven’t decided yet how I’m going to decide on the heir. Perhaps a poll (if anyone actually stumbles upon this blog) or maybe strict equality rules where the heir must be the opposite gender of the current founder/heir. Rules for the legacy challenge, as I’m sure most of you know, can be found here.

A Note from Me: I got The Sims 4 a few days ago as a Christmas gift so this legacy is my first time really diving into the game. Mistakes will probably be made and I can guarantee that I will have no idea what I am doing most of the time. All I ask is that you strap on your seatbelts and stick with me 🙂
