Random Trait Generators Updated for the Cats & Dogs Expansion!

Hi everyone! Just a quick post to let you know that the both of the Random Trait Generators (the all traits at once and the one trait at a time generators) have been updated to include the Aspiration and two new traits included in the Cats & Dogs expansion. As always, if you do not own this expansion simply re-roll (click the Roll Another Child button) to get traits that you do have the expansion for.

Also, in regards to changes to the Legacy Challenge rules for this new expansion… there likely will not be any major gameplay changes. We will not be updating the rules to include a pet Legacy as pets count as part of your 8 Sim limit which will make it very difficult to run your regular Sim Legacy. Legacy families are allowed to have pets, but just keep in mind that they count towards your Sim limit which might be a problem if you have a lot of Sims in a particular generation.

There MIGHT be a standalone pet related challenge coming in the future, but no changes will be made to any of our current challenges to add pets sub-rules.

Legacy Rules for the Sims 4 Cats & Dogs Will Be Delayed

Hey everyone! I just wanted to let you all know that updated Legacy Challenge Rules for the Sims 4 Cats & Dogs will likely be delayed for a bit. We are unable to purchase the game at the moment which means we won’t be able to do any sort of playtesting to see what we needed updated/add/change for the rules. We are hoping to be able to buy the game in a week or so, but until then, the rules will not be updated. Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience!

I also have a challenge in mind for the new expansion, but again, it will need to wait until I can actually obtain the expansion to playtest everything. Hopefully soon! I just wanted to be up front and transparent about why there is a delay with the rules.

Mystic is Streaming the Sims 2!

Hey everyone, I decided to get back into occasional Sims streams on my Twitch channel. At the moment I am focusing primarily on The Sims 2 and working on a brand new Legacy challenge (don’t worry, the Retreaux Legacy isn’t going anywhere!). If you are interested in checking it out I will be live this morning starting at around 9:30 am EST! You will need to have a verified email address to chat with me in real-time on Twitch, but if you’d rather just watch and not chat, that’s fine too!

The Retreaux Legacy Ch 1.16 – Happy Birthday Marle!

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a great week! As I mentioned in my Novella Movin Up On Challenge episode post yesterday, Pinstar and I were interviewed by Gita from Kotaku about the Legacy Challenge and how we met via the Sims 2. Huge thank you to Gita and Kotaku! We loved the article!

In the last chapter Crono aged up into Neo from the Matrix. Today we celebrate Marle’s birthday. I can’t believe she’s old enough to become an elder now!
