This is an account of my continuing Winslow Legacy Challenge for The Sims 3. I started my Sims 3 Legacy Challenge on June 23. I am playing 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 have 20 friends.
Here is the beginning of my Winslow Legacy Challenge for The Sims 3.
Thursday, Simday 12
Family Funds: $2478
Lifetime Rewards Points: 10,000 used (Professional Slacker, Office Hero) 4786 open
Skills: athletic 1, charisma 4, fishing 2, gardening 1
3 friends, 1 romantic interest, 7 aquaintances
Career: Business, level 4
Gilbert makes his usual gym shower stop before work. He doesn’t have time for anything fun, unfortunately. I’m considering getting him a TV for his empty lot, but a burglar could take it so easily. Yay! He is promoted to Department Head! That was a want. He gets a $972 bonus and wow, he makes $98 an hour. Business may be the only sims 3 career where the higher up sims get, the MORE hours they work. Gilbert should be able to build a house of sorts after tomorrow’s pay. Hopefully he can get another promotion and another bonus.
After work, Gilbert goes next door to the gym for some much needed TV to calm his “overworked” and “strained” moodlets. His promotion meter was almost full at the start of the day, so he didn’t even need to work so hard. I can be mean, I guess! LOL! He just tried his friendly introduction on a sim named Dave Ramsey! Chatting with River McIrish, he gets to charisma 5. Gilbert’s boss calls to chat and of course he says sure. Food, toilet, shower, and the next thing he knows he is home getting lifetime rewards points for sleeping outside. I highly recommend starting all founders with the “loves the outdoors” trait.
Friday, simday 13 of my Winslow Legacy Challenge for The Sims 3
I’ve decided to save up 10,000 open lifetime rewards points and purchase the Multitasker, for faster promotions. Gilbert wants to become best friends with Bebe, to have five friends, to hang out with Bebe, and to go jogging. Let’s see if his family funds are enough at the end of today to build somewhat of a house so he can marry Bebe. What has only been a few sim days to us is a few years to Gilbert. Sims only live 90 – 120 days, so a sim day is like a people year. Gilbert has been interested in Bebe for years now! A combination of “powerwork” and “suck up to boss” all day, and… D’oh! He missed the promotion and bonus by a hair. With the Multitasker he’d have gotten them for sure.
Family Funds: $4621
Gilbert goes home and starts building the Winslow mansion. He builds a 5 x 7 furnished room, and now has $2481 for furniture. There is no toilet yet. He spends $895 for a burglar alarm, which was the point of building walls. $500 for a TV with fun 4. The TV at the gym is fun 8. At the last minute, Gilbert figures, probably correctly, that no woman would agree to live anyplace without a toilet! He spends $920 on a toilet and a 2 x 3 finished room for it. $166 left. Company will likely insist on chairs for watching the TV. Three of the cheapest chairs later, Gilbert has $46 left. Let’s hope bills don’t come before Monday’s pay!
So now Gilbert has a finished bathroom with just a toilet in it. He has a finished bedroom which is crowded with the double BRASS bed, the cheapest fridge, a fun 4 TV, and three folding chairs. His new energy 8 single bed remains outside so that while he sleeps, he can get lifetime rewards points for loving the outdoors. This is all on a large beautiful lot, yet these are truly humble beginnings.
D’oh! There is still no way to wash all the dirty dishes. I pile them in the bathroom. Oh man, bills did come! They’re only $17 though. Whew! He has $29 left.
Gilbert has a nice chat with Bebe on his cell phone, and dreams that night of kissing her.
