I started a legacy of my own a while back and just published the final chapter a few days ago. I ran into a little bump after re-installing my games and all my saved files. Upon starting my game, all my families I had created where there...except my legacy family. I am working on trying to get that family back on line as I have decided to continue on with the son's of my girl. But if I can't get that family back, then I may take a different route and start with a whole new family - thus a whole new legacy.

All in a Sims Day Legacy is about a young girl named Serenity Grace. She grew up in the city and upon graduation she decided to settle down in a small country town, leaving behind all the glitz and glam of the big city life for a life in the country. Follow her life as she struggles to find a job, meeting the local towns folk, finding love, falling out of love, settling down and raising a family.

Looks like I will have to do some caching up on this legacy. I will be back to scream with joy and excitment.

Thank you Ina! I had such a great time writing it. It was a challenge for me to do this story as I had to deviate from my normal hum-drum, boring, nothing exciting ever happens type game! LOL! Once I can figure out why my other families copied over but not that one, I have decided to continue with the sons. I have something in store for one of them! evilevil I almost cried myself when Serenity's time came up. She began to feel like a family member! My whole family had fallen in love with her, her story. And hated a few characters along the way.

Thank you for the compliment, Ina. cuddle My brothers and mom used to always tell me I had a vivid imagination, I thought they were crazy! Being the youngest of 5 kids, I really didn't have anyone to play with except my cats, dogs and barbies. At times it did get a little difficult to come up with the chapter story and make it coincide as closely as possible to what happened before. Each chapter I would start out with a basic guide as to how I wanted it to go, by time I actually published one, it had gone through many edits and a couple actually got completely scratched and re-wrote completely different. A lot depended on the family too. Sims can be so fickle sometimes! too funny

Oh my gosh...that story you, Jack and Tasha started was awesome! I felt like I could actually see the girl shivering, hear the approaching shadow, the voices, the rooms...everything!
When I decided to tackle writing a legacy, I really had no idea what I was doing, what I would write about, if I was going to create a family, young couple, old couple or a single female/male sim. As I created my girl, (Serenity), I then decided she was going to be just a young single girl and it kinda just went from there. The first few chapters I wrote ideas out in a notebook, during game play I would try to capture the screen shots I needed to go with the story. Boy was that a challenge all by itself, getting the right shot! Once I got the story going, I completely gave up in the notebook and wrote the next chapter out on my legacy blog. I found that was more easier than using the notebook as much. I still used my notebook but basically just jotted down the types of screen shots I would need, then hoped and prayed I could get them! I always read, re-read, edited, read again without the pictures. Once I put the pictures in, I would read, re-read, edit and I also had my family read the story and give me their input. Having a another set of eyes to read your story helps. They may catch misspelled words, another way of doing a sentence, or adding something to the chapter story line. I also kept in mind just how I wanted the story to go, I aimed at keeping it as close to "real life" experiences as possible. It also helps to let your imagination run wild!

I have reached a dilemma in continuing with my legacy. I have tried everything I can think of and that family just won't copy over. For the life of me I just can't figure out why, all the other families I had on my old pc copied over just fine. I could continue on in a way that it would be generations later, with a family that I just created. The guy kinda looks like BJ. I will post a pic of both BJ and this sim once I can photo edit them. I thought I had one of the new family, but apparently I don't. (I have some shots of BJ in a different folder that I can use)

I hope how I wrote my legacy gives you some ideas to bounce around in starting a story here.

Not a prob! Glad to help. Hugs to you too, you guys have helped me tremendously! cuddle

Here is that comparison photo of BJ and Hank (my new guy), although its not the best or closest, it's the only real clear one of BJ that I could find. I think there is some similarity there. How bout you?

I definately think there is a strong resemblence between them, I was thinking maybe he could be the grandson that stumbles across Serenity's journal which was kept amang his grandfathers pocessions and that could be your link, or not, teehee you have probably got some awesome ideas brewing within that creative mind of yours

more love more love

That is an awesome idea! I love it, I will keep that one in mind, for sure! I do have some ideas, and more keep popping up everyday, hehe. Who knows, I just may spend this generation story on how he discovers his family's background through his child.

So I have decided to go ahead with my legacy. Hank will be the great-grandson to Serenity. I will have the first chapter up for viewing tomorrow, hopefully. Providing life don't get in the way! LYHO
