Now for something completely different!
Inspired by my Twitter feed I downloaded Sims 4 on the new compy and even picked up the new expansion. CrankyB challenged me to finally work on a Sims legacy, something which I’ve never managed to complete before. Mostly because I don’t like seeing my little Sims die, for some reason I feel like I have to keep them going.
So this time around I figured, well I’ll do a legacy but I’ll set one up that I won’t mind watching as their little time marches on. My pick? Well our commander in grief and his fams. Granted though the youngest I named Junior, and he gets some help along the way because kids are kids.
Now this is just a parody and meant to be fun, while also taking the edge off of recent events. So before anyone gets out the pitchfork let me just say “here’s some cake and funny screenshots.” So if you enjoy humor, I submit my Sims 4 family for your entertainment, they’ve been nothing but a blast for me.
So meet the Trumps, the beginning of my Riches to Whatevs Sims 4 Fishbowl legacy.
What the hell is a fishbowl legacy? Pretty simple, all you have to do is let your sims roam free. You can do things here and there to nudge them in the right direction, but for the most part you just put them in a house and let ’em go. Most legacies last about 10 sims generations. So I’m going to see how long I can watch them go.
Also for the Riches to Whatevs, that part, I cheated about 100k simoleons to get them into a high rise in the rich part of town. After all, they are the Trumps. Whether they can make enough to keep themselves living the high life is more or less up to them. I’ll help them here or there along the way, but for the most part what they do is up to them.
Meet Mr. Trump. His traits are, Materialistic, Snob and Mean. It seemed appropriate at the time.
His current aspiration is to have the biggest most beautiful house, because he always has the best things. This means that he’s also business savvy, which should go a long way in helping him pay the rent on the fancy high rise they live in.
As for career, he’s currently working on the political career track that comes with the Sims 4 city expansion. I wanted to try it out and considering recent events, it just seemed laughably obvious.
Here is the run down on SimTrump:
- He enjoys grilling burgers for breakfast,
- Arguing with his toilet,
- Playing with his cell phone and
- surprisingly enough programming.
Yep, he’s the only Sim I’ve had that has spontaneously started learning programming on his own. That was pretty awesome.
Meet the Misses
Mrs. Trump is Family-Oriented, Ambitious and Unflirty.
For her I picked the City Native aspiration that comes with the city expansion just to try it out. This gives her the Home Turf trait that makes her happier when she’s in her ‘home neighborhood’. I like that idea since she can be pretty sad when she’s unemployed or not around her family.
The misses is pretty fun as well. She spontaneously joined a protest. Granted I asked her to watch it and then canceled the action once she arrived to see what would happen. But I was surprised to see her picketing in her heels and fancy duds.
Here is the general rundown for the misses:
- She enjoys grilling in the morning
- Basketball surprisingly enough
- Hugging her family, a lot
- and Bubble baths (sometimes on the deck of their penthouse)
It’s a thing apparently.
While she was going to be a stay at home mom at first, not being employed was making her pretty moody so now she’s trying out the Social Media career. I probably should have had Mr Trump working on that one, but this is just as fun.
Junior is a fun kid, proving that the AI for children in the Sims 4 makes them downright adorable. Here he is in his room having some quality duck time while Dad works on programming.
Junior is still in the child life phase for the simmies in Sims 4 and I almost forgot to make sure that he had some fun toys to play with. Now he has a dino, a toy box and a ducky to go along with his cell phone and computer.
The rundown on Junior:
- surfs kid friendly websites,
- plays computer games,
- dances a lot,
- watches kid tv,
- And loves eating burgers out of the fridge.
So my first generation is on the go. I do have to decide if the penthouse will be used through out the generations, or if I should see if they can come up with enough simoleons on their own to move out into a big family mansion. This would give them enough room to keep heirs and spares under one roof.
I suppose it depends on the traits that Junior ends up with. I’ll go with letting him get one trait from Mom, one trait from Dad and one completely random trait.
I can honestly say that this is a big challenge for me because I usually spend my time in Sims games building or micromanaging my sims. Honestly though this mostly hands off approach has lead to some rather interesting adventures and I’m looking forward to seeing what my sims are up to next.
Well until next time, don’t forget to get out and play.
