#MonthofSims Day 2 – Zombie snowmen of doom

#MonthofSims Day 2#MonthofSims Day 2 – Zombie snowmen of doom! – Yesterday’s post featured a zombie building a snowman. Well… this was the result of his endeavor. Two happy, charming snowmen. I have to admit though, I don’t trust them. Nothing good can come of zombie built snowmen folks!

#MonthofSims Day 1 – Do you wanna build a snowman?

Screenshot-14#MonthofSims Day 1 – Do you wanna build a snowman? – Picture if you will, this terrifying zombie… this fiend of the night… singing the song, “Do you wanna build a snowman?” from Disney’s Frozen. Now, tell me, did you keep a straight face?

Oh yes… nothing is more terrifying than a snowman building zombie. Cower in fear as this undead minion constructs Olaf the Snowman who wants to give warm hugs. You will NEVER be safe if this is to continue!

Introducing the #MonthofSims Twitter event!


As some of you know, the other game that I play a lot of along with The Sims 3 and the dozen or so indie titles that I love is Guild Wars 2. When 2014 rolled around one of the players started up a Twitter event called #GW2Project365 which involves posting a screenshot from the game once a day for a year. I thought it might be fun to do something similar for the Sims!

Rather than do the event for the remainder of 2014, I thought maybe I would start small and have this event last for the month of March. So I came up with the idea of #MonthofSims. If you are interested in participating all you have to do is the following:

-Post a screenshot from any of the Sims games (1, 2, or 3) once per day throughout the month of March with the hashtag #MonthofSims

-You can either upload the screenshot directly to Twitter or post it on your website and then link to there, either way is fine.

-Share the event with others so that more Simmers know about it. The more that know, the more that can participate and the more awesome Sims screenshots you get to see!

-HAVE FUN!  Enjoy posting silly, funny, sad, serious… basically any kind of Sims related screenshot that you wish (they do NOT need to be related to the Legacy Challenge, it can be anything Sims related!). Just make sure the hashtag #MonthofSims is included on the Tweet so that others can find your screenshots!

This will be a great way for fans to celebrate the game that they love so much, by sharing screenshots of their Sims with others.

I’ll start things off on March 1st on my Twitter page, but if you live in a different time zone and March 1st comes earlier for you than it does for me (I’m in EST) then feel free to get things started!

The Fantasia Legacy – Chapter 3

Chapter 2 ended with Hermione and Wei getting a start on Generation 2 of this Legacy. Hermione became pregnant on the first try; so we expanded the house a little bit. Here is the interior:

The Fantasia Legacy – Chapter 2

We last left Hermione with the discovery that Lenny Smith-Jones, one of her potential husbands, is rich. Sadly this means he is out of the running to be the Generation 1 spouse. So, now it’s up to Wei! With any luck, he won’t be rich as well and Hermione and he can tie the knot soon.

Fantasia Legacy 2.1Ok Hermione, let’s see if Wei is rich. We’re at his house now. This is his roomate, Lang. Talk to him a bit to see if you can figure out how much money they have.

The Fantasia Legacy – Not this week…

Hi again everyone!

I was originally going to do my Legacy Chapters every Saturday, but with my new job as an editor for an awesome Indie gaming website and my other gaming website, not to mention a busy real life schedule with my kids, I just don’t have the time to play The Sims 3 often enough to write chapters weekly. So I think I am going to push this to every 2 weeks just to give me time to get the screenshots taken and the chapters written. If I get a week where I have more time to play then I will get one out two weeks in a row, it just really depends on timing.

So with that in mind, I am not going to be posting a new chapter today, but I do plan on having one up next Saturday. I just didn’t have enough time to play this week to get enough screenshots for another chapter.

See you all next week and happy Simming!

The Fantasia Legacy – Chapter 1

Yesterday, I introduced you to my new Sims 3 Legacy family, the Fantasias. Today I will begin the story that will document their lives through Generation 10!

Fantasia Legacy - Chapter 1 - 1Seeing as Hermione has the lifetime wish of becoming a World Renowned Surgeon, I immediately sent her to the local hospital to apply for a job. You are now looking at Twinbrook’s newest…. organ donor… Well, I suppose everyone has to start somewhere, right? I just hope she still has all of her vital organs by the time she gets her first promotion, yikes!

The Fantasia Legacy – Introduction

Well Simmers, I have a new Sims 3 Legacy up and running now that my Sims 2 game doesn’t seem to want to cooperate anymore.

To be honest, I haven’t really played much of The Sims 3 in the last year or so. I was so absorbed by my Sims 2 Legacy that I didn’t really have time to do much in the newer game. I have to say though, I really love the quality of life changes that the Sims 3 has compared to the Sims 2. It’s much more Legacy friendly and the open world really helps to cut down on loading times when going from one place to another. I’m looking forward to playing more of this game!

I will be playing this family in Twinbrook. I like that the town starts out a bit run down. It is motivating me to get my family to buy as many of the lots as possible so that I can update the town as my family’s wealth increases. It will be yet another way for me to track my family’s progress as the town will gradually improve as well.

Let’s get on with this introduction!

ImaginingMystic’s Sims 2 Legacy Challenge – Update

Hi all!

Unfortunately there will be no Sims 2 Legacy Challenge chapter today. My Sims 2 game has decided to die again. It was having near constant errors for the last couple of weeks where I would only be able to play for a few minutes and then it would shut down. Now it won’t boot up at all.

I’m going to be honest here. I’m tired for fighting with the game. I tried getting everything moved to Origin, but only a few of the Sims 2 games are available there. So, I’m going to have to throw in the towel on the Sims 2 Legacy. I just can’t keep fighting with it. I am hoping to get a Sims 3 Legacy up soon and POSSIBLY do it as a YouTube Let’s Play instead of written chapters, but that is a big if at the moment. I have to see how my computer handles video recording and editing. I’m skeptical as to whether or not it can. If it can’t, I’ll do written chapters like I’ve been doing with the Sims 2.

I am sorry to everyone that has been reading my Sims 2 Legacy story. I was really having fun with it, but it’s just not worth the stress of fighting with The Sims 2 game anymore.

I’m hoping to get my Sims 3 Legacy up (in one form or another) by next Saturday, so stay tuned!
