#TS4 – Happy Valentine’s Day from #TheRayneLegacy

After having an incredibly productive day yesterday, I decided it was time to play The Sims 4. The game notified me about their WooHoo Weekend. So because my file with The Boyfriend & I already had a couple who were ready to WooHoo, I played that last night. Today, I decided to check in on Evyn and The Rayne Legacy.

Recently, Evyn had met Elijah McWilliams on a camping trip. She decided to call him up and invite him over and over the course of the next two days, they went from hardly knowing each other to steamy exchanges.

Then, Evyn prepared a delicious chilli dinner and sat down with her two favorite girls in the whole world for a nice Valentine’s Day meal.

Felicity and Geisha went outside to play and Evyn made some pretty bold moves with Elijah. First kiss, first time WooHoo-ing and a new boy toy – best Valentine’s Day ever!

In total over the past two days, I’ve contributed approximately 7 WooHoo’s to the 4-5 million the game is looking for. I really hope to get the gnome, because it is by far the cutest one yet. And while Evyn’s hair is all set (at least until she has her next birthday), it would be really great to get new hairstyles for the girls when they age up next – which isn’t that long away!

#TS4: A Weekend in Granite Falls

It’s been quite awhile since I last played The Rayne Legacy. I’ve started so many other families experimenting with various things that I haven’t even paid any attention to Evyn, Felicity and Geisha. Today, I decided to change that.

Evyn’s been pretty unhappy as she works towards her next promotion. She just does not like filling out reports on her computer, no matter how friendly I try to make the area for her.

The girls have been working towards completing their various milestones, because I’m desperate to age them up, but don’t want to do it until they’ve completed their childish aspirations. Geisha took forever because Evyn wouldn’t read to her, but finally, we got over that. Felicity has been busy creating some pretty interesting pieces of art, which I plan to display eventually.

Finally, the girls took a camping trip. After saving up for days they were finally ready to go and spent three days out in the wilderness. Evyn collected a bunch of new plants, frogs and even some insects. Geisha decided to go fishing and generally spent the entire vacation in a fowl mood. Felicity spent most of her time socializing with the other campers and sitting around the campfires. They even had an awesome game of horseshoes!

Next time I play, I plan on aging up the twins, Felicity and Geisha. I’m excited to see what they’ll look like as teenagers. I’m considering trying to get Evyn to fall in love with someone and have another baby before she’s officially too old, but we’ll see how the next session goes.

Until the next time 😉

#TS4 – End Tables and Pirate Ships

I have not been playing nearly enough of The Sims 4. Okay, that’s a bit of a lie. Just not enough of The Rayne Legacy. I went back to it but quickly became bored and then The Boyfriend was a sweetheart and let me buy some other games.

So not only did I get the new “game pack” for The Sims 4 but I also bought myself Hotel Giant 2, which I can waste way too many hours on! Because I bought the game pack though, I had to start a new family so that I could experiment with it right off the bat, because I couldn’t with The Rayne Legacy – it’s just not how I roll!

However, I figured I’d share a little bit of what Evyn, Felicity and Geisha did the last time I played.

First, Evyn bought a workbench. The house is still rather lacking in decorative furniture, so she decided that she would make an end table for the living room area. She started with a few slabs of wood…

And ended up making this beautiful end table:

Evyn's End Table!

Evyn’s End Table!

I wonder what she’ll make next?

Then, the girls were on their way home from school and Evyn decided it would be the perfect time to hop in for a swim, especially being that she was feeling pretty tense. Then the girls got home and they all had fun in the tiny pool.

Finally, Felicity and Geisha both needed to get out of the house for awhile. They had never been to Magnolia Park, so headed down to check out the playground. Not only did they get to meet two new friends but they had a blast playing on the Pirate Ship.

Argh, Matey!

TS4: Evyn Had Twins!!

So, the other day, I hopped onto The Sims 4 and played for a little while. I keep playing with my speed turned all the way up and things keep happening that I don’t exactly plan. Like for example, out of nowhere, Evyn became an adult. Or, after letting her just go wild talking to people all by herself, she ended up in bed with a guy she had just met.

I’ve learnt that I need to stop pressing the three little arrows…

They spent a few hours talking to each other (and apparently flirting like crazy), because next thing you know, Evyn’s asking Kingston to be her boyfriend. I said, “Okay, they’re already dating, might as well WooHoo, right?” and this is where things get even crazier…

Evyn Had Twins!!!

Evyn Had Twins!!!

If you ever doubted the saying, “It only takes once…”, this is where your doubt can surely end. So, I go to make Kingston and Evyn WooHoo, and the game lags just a little bit and I end up clicking on “Try for a Baby”, although I wasn’t aware of it at the time.

It was as if the virtual condom fell off… Darn you, three arrows!!

I debated about just quitting right then and there, when I noticed a few days later that Evyn had gotten quite huge. But then, I decided to wait it out. When the first one was born and it was a girl, I knew I couldn’t quit now. My first heir was born!! Then came the second one right after, and imagine my delight when it was another girl!!

So, my 2nd generation heir has been born, Evyn’s now a mother and an adult, and now it’s just working hard to complete her milestones and career, which is proving to be the most difficult thing in the world right now. She just will not stay happy and she seems to never have enough money, it’s a bit of a pain.

It’ll probably be a few days before I’m back on The Sims 4 for a bit, because I have a lot of other stuff that I need to get done. But I’m excited to see what’s next for The Rayne Legacy.

TS4: Introducing Evyn Rayne & The Rayne Legacy

Okay, so after I officially gave up on Ashton Rayne and The Rayne Household, it took me a really long time to get back to playing the game. I was being really stubborn about it too and did some things I’m not so proud of, such as starting and ending two more families rather abruptly.

I decided to carry on with the naming scheme of my lead female characters going through the alphabet. So, there was Ashton, as you know. Then, I started Blyss Rayne and carried on through to her having a child with a guy she wasn’t married to, and she named that daughter Crimson. I deleted her and created Deja Rayne next. She lasted even less time than Blyss and then I didn’t play again for a few days.

About two days ago, The Boyfriend lovingly convinced me to play The Sims 4 so that he could play games longer. So now, I’d like to introduce to you, Evyn Rayne.

Evyn decided to try out one of the brand new careers that was added and entered into the Business track. Who knows what the future holds at this point, but hopefully the fact that she’s ambitious and a genius will help her out.

She’s still saving up money at this point to build walls, but she’s got the bare necessities and really, what else could this girl need?!? Technically, she could sell all the collectibles and frogs and plants that she’s hoarding in her inventory for a fat sum of cash, but since she’s a Collector, I doubt that’s going to happen.

The Rayne Legacy, like The Rayne Household, is another legacy-esque challenge with heirs being first-born daugthers. Adopted children are not eligible to become heirs.

Finally, here’s the totally awesome holiday sweater that Evyn’s wearing this season 😉 Isn’t it just the best?

TS4 – Build Progression Pt. 2 and Engagement Announcement

I haven’t been getting on The Sims 4 very much to play my legacy-esque challenge lately, but I did play for about two hours the other day and struggled to get anywhere for almost the whole time. Ashton was just not a happy camper – plus, a glitch (that’s now been fixed), resulted in me losing the first 10 books that she wrote (although I was still being credited with the level ups that resulted from that), so I wasn’t earning any royalties on those books.

However, after two hours of playing and then falling asleep and then playing for a little bit longer, Ashton was able to get enough money into the house to make a couple rooms bigger and finish her outdoor areas plus… Drumroll please…

ASHTON AND WALKER ARE NOW ENGAGED!!

Ashton and Walker Get Engaged!

If you’re not sure why this is an exciting thing, it’s because it’s my first generation Sims getting married, which means I’ll now be able to have two Sims have a baby, which means that I’ll officially be bringing in the potentials for my second generation! That means that the legacy-esque challenge continues!

If you remember from the intro post, I’m going with a Strict Traditional Matriarchy for my succession laws – meaning that only the first-born females are eligible to become heirs.

Let’s start with the build progress. As you remember, this is what we started with (when we finally got a roof):

And this is The Rayne Household today:

The kitchen and living room have both been expanded and decorated, a study has been added along with a game room (which currently has chess and a card table), and an exercise studio (which is still kind of in-progress), plus the entire backyard has been added to.

So, I said once the wedding area was built, Ashton would begin working her way into the heart of Walker Gould and she’s been incredibly successful. She’s serenaded him, shared her dreams with him and on their fourth official date (they went to the Museum in Willow Creek), they reached a new level in their budding relationship.

Now, it’s all about keeping their relationship levels up so that we can throw a party and get married. Once we’re married, the goal will be to have a baby – which involves building another room onto the ever-expanding Affluista Mansion.
