I’ve had this in mind for a while. Yes, I do have a bias towards my green-skinned descendants, but the truth was that Kree and Shi’ar just kept interrupting actions designed to finish aspirations, while Skrull fulfilled them like a dream. As Skrull aged up and became increasingly unpleasant, I kind of wished I could reverse my path, but the kids just wouldn’t cooperate. I like writing nice and happy sims, but it looks like we’re in for another rocky ride in generation 4.
Anyway, we’ve finished 22 weeks, and are starting the 23rd.
Tholian has completed his painting aspiration and reached the top of the writing career. If he had any happiness he’d be a glowing success as a sim. On the other hand, the family fortune is in great shape. I won’t do a rebuild this generation just because it takes me so much time, but they’re well set for the next one.
Peyton is an An0nymous Ghost, level 8 of the criminal career, and doing well there. The Party Animal aspiration continues to be painful, but I’m making progress on it.
Horta has reached the top of the chef career. Successful Lineage proves to be another very buggy aspiration. Last week I said reaching the top of a teen career didn’t qualify, but this week it did. I’m not sure if it registered Kree (her nephew) reaching the top of the career or if it caught up to Skrull. Gardening mentoring doesn’t seem to be working, despite the text saying it does, but she’s gotten 2 out of 3 mentors done. I really don’t get this one.
Skrull has aged up and gotten her final trait, noncommittal. So she’s mean, hot-headed, and noncommittal. This is going to be a fun one in a legacy family. She’s definitely not the sim I’d have picked. But that’s part of the fun of the challenge, to my mind, playing styles I ordinarily wouldn’t. I’m having trouble with her fishing aspiration – getting great catches seems to happen very rarely, but she’s still trying.
Kree and Shi’ar – well, they’re coming along, but I’m not putting great effort into them, since Skrull is kicking them out as soon as she takes over.
Current Score – 49 (point for getting gold in all party types.)
