ImaginingMystic’s Legacy Story – Chapter 5

Hello again everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday.

Now that we’re back home and no longer traveling I can finally get back to playing my Legacy family and working on the Legacy story.

Sims 2 Legacy Chapter 5.1

It would seem that the walls in the Legacy household were not build to code. Snow should not be seeping in through the bottom like this. Yikes.

And now… a word from the Good News Department

*clears throat*  I am pleased to announce that….



They’re baaaaaaaaaaack!

Just as randomly as my Sims 2 game stopped working for almost 3 weeks, it has randomly started running again!  My Legacy family is fine, just where I last left them and everything is right with the world again.

I have no idea what caused the game to have constant errors, all I know is that it is working again.  The only thing that changed is that Windows performed an update the other day.  So maybe that had something to do with it?

Who knows.  All I know is, I’m ecstatic right now!  I can’t wait to get this family to Generation 10!

Added a Sims 4 category to the forums!

I just added a category to our forums for discussions specific to The Sims 4. If you have any questions for us regarding our plans for the Sims 4 or if you have any suggestions for us, please post them there.  We’d love to hear from you!

We’d really like the Sims 4 Legacy Challenge to be more of a group effort.  Rather than Pinstar coming up with rules and posting them, we’d really like to incorporate some fan ideas into the challenge as well.  You all have been such a huge part of the success of this challenge that we want you all to have input into how the Sims 4 Legacy Challenge goes.  So if there is something you’d like to see, please let us know on the forums!

Welcome to the new Legacy Challenge website!

Welcome to the new Legacy Challenge Website - Pinstar and ImaginingMystic

Hello and welcome to the new Legacy Challenge Website! For the last week I have been busily getting our new website together. I have wanted to move the Legacy Challenge Blog over to it’s own domain for a while now, but I was worried that transferring from a Blogger blog to a WordPress blog was going to be way more trouble than it was worth. However, I finally decided to just grit my teeth and do it.  And you know what?  Transferring from Blogger to WordPress is EASY. It took all of about 5 minutes to get the posts from Blogger to here.

December 2013 Sim of the Month Challenge – Fred Fernberger

 Fred Fernberger
Sim of the Month: December 2013

(NOTE:  If you have never done a Sim of the Month Challenge before and would like to know more, you can find more information on the Sim of the Month Challenge Page.)


Fred Fernberger was never what you would call a “Normal” person. A day dreamer, Fred has always had difficulty remaining grounded in reality. To him, life should be a fairy tale, with happy endings for everybody. Unfortunately for Fred, life isn’t a fairy tale and up until now, his own life did not look like it was headed for a happy ending.

Some updates and some sad news for my Legacy Challenge Story…

First off, I hope all of our American readers had a great Thanksgiving yesterday.  Also, Happy Hanukkah to all who celebrate!

Secondly…. I guess I may as well give the sad news….

My Sims 2 game seems to be a goner.

It hasn’t been able to load without an error (a completely blank error by the way) for the last 2 weeks.  I’m not sure if the CD was scratched or if something else happened, but I have been unable to get it to load.  I had installed 2 other games in that time and I thought maybe they caused a conflict and deleted them, but that didn’t help the matter.  So it looks like my Sims 2 Legacy Challenge is done for… at least for the moment.  If I can figure out what happened with it and can get it working again, I will try to start it up.  However, I am not hopeful.  This tends to be the trend for me.  I get super involved in a Sims 2 Legacy only to have a glitch or game error completely destroy it.

ImaginingMystic’s Legacy Story – Chapter 3

Here we are again.  After the arrival of Geneva and Aaron’s second boy, I promptly sent them back to the bed to try for yet another baby.  No rest for the weary in this family!
Geneva:  So… I guess we should get to it, huh?
Aaron:  Yeah, I suppose.  Though I’m having fun staring creepily at our Overlord.
Geneva:  Don’t do that, you may end up a Zombie or something.
Nice foreplay guys.
Anyway, they did the deed, baby lullaby played, and that means Baby #3 is currently baking.

Sims 4 News – Game Set to Launch in Fall of 2014!

EA has announced that the Sims 4 will be launching in the fall of 2014.  This is a bit later than their original plan of “early 2014”, but I’m not really complaining.  A later launch date means that they are giving themselves more time for testing which will -hopefully- alleviate some bugs (and we all know the Sims can be a buggy game!).

The game is now also available for pre-order.  You can do so either through the official Sims website or through another online shopping site such as Amazon.

One thing about the Sims 4 that has me pretty excited is Emotions.  I’m really curious as to how these will play out in the Legacy Challenge.  Information on The Sims 4 can be found at

I really liked the Trait system in Sims 3 and I am glad to see that it will be making it’s return in the Sims 4.

I can’t give any details yet as to how the Legacy Challenge will work in The Sims 4, but I am hoping to get some information out soon.  Pinstar is reading through some information now, and will hopefully have something to share with you all soon.  It won’t be in-depth rules, but it might be a glimmer of what you can expect when the new game launches.

So now a question for our readers:

What would YOU like to see in the Sims 4 Legacy Challenge?  Was there anything specific in the previous challenges that you’d really prefer wouldn’t be in the new one, or maybe something you really loved that you want to see again?  We’d love to hear from you!

ImaginingMystic’s Legacy Story – Chapter 2

We last left our family as they were about to *ahem* consummate their marriage.
And it looks like Generation 2 is on it’s way!  The lullaby music played, and Geneva is pregnant (hopefully with a girl so that the Matriarchy handicap doesn’t result in being a huge difficulty).
