This is an account of days 4 and 5 of my Winslow Legacy Challenge for The Sims 3. Pinstar posted the Sims 3 rules for the Legacy Challenge on the official Sims 3 bulletin board on June 21, 2009. Pinstar should soon post the new Sims 3 Legacy Challenge rules to his website.
I started my Sims 3 Legacy Challenge on Tuesday June 23 at 5pm Pacific time. I am playing my Sims 3 Legacy Challenge in Sunset Valley at 15 Summer Hill Court. My founder is Gilbert Winslow. He is brave, ambitious, charismatic, friendly, and he loves the outdoors. His lifetime wish is to be a popular superstar who is friends with 20 sims. The days in my headings are sim days.
Days 1 through 3 of my Winslow Legacy Challenge for Sims 3
Day 4 of my Winslow Legacy Challenge for Sims 3, Wednesday
Gilbert woke up at 6:20 am, not quite fully rested and very hungry. His picture was orange. On his own he started reading Caffeine Culture, the book his boss gave him. He read it until the carpool came at 7am.
It looks like his promotion meter is full from yesterday’s drop down work choice, “suck up to boss,” so today I chose “meet coworkers”. He met Iliana Langerak and so I chose “hang out at water cooler” for the rest of Gilbert’s work day.
Gilbert got an opportunity today to improve charisma by making friends with Dorie Hart. I planned to send him next door to the gym first to shower and watch some TV as his fun and hygeine meters were low.
He got his promotion to filing clerk! He now makes $36 an hour and he got a bonus. Family funds are $1299 now, not enough by far to build any sort of shelter on his beautiful home lot. I just noticed there is a fridge at the gym. He could have bought a better bed by saving and not buying the fridge.
Dorie Hart was at work at the bookstore and could not be disturbed, so I told Gilbert to go to the library so he could read up and satisfy his want to learn gardening. He has a mind of his own though. He started to “work out until fatigued”. So I made him try his “charming introduction” on Madison VanWatson. She is a pretty red head, although like most sims who live without our guidance, she is fat!
At 900 pm Gilbert’s boss Nick Alto called to chat. Of course I selected “sure”. Gilbert’s fun meter stayed full, yay! I had him get “squeaky clean” at the gym before going home to sleep. I just noticed he gets lifetime rewards points for sleeping outside! “Loves the outdoors” is a really good choice for one of the Legacy Challenge founder’s traits. Until we get seasons, anyway!
Family funds: $1,299
Reward points: 4500
Day 5 of my Winslow Legacy Challenge for Sims 3, Thursday
I hovered my cursor over the gym all the sim night while Gilbert got reward points for sleeping outside so that I could queue up gym activities for first thing when he woke up. He got a want to be best friends with his boss. I chose “suck up to boss” for all day at his work. He got a $6 per hour raise and now makes $42 per hour. Wow, he is one highly paid file clerk!
At last Gilbert went to see Dorie Hart for his charisma opportunity. Wow, is she fat. The meeting was outside, so he got some more lifetime rewards points, and bought “professional slacker”. With this he can concentrate on making friends at work, and still get raises and promotions. His “ambitious” trait ought to help with that, too. Now he has sat down at one of the tables outside The Little Corsican Bistro to read that book his boss gave him, Caffeine Culture.
At 6pm he is almost out of energy, so I send him to the gym to have a quick shower, some cereal, and a nap so he can watch some TV and fill his fun meter before heading home to sleep outside for the night.
Family Funds: $1,534
Rewards: taken 5000 open 785
Skills: charisma 2, fishing 1
