The Werewolves of Baton Rouge—Matty Post 2

As I mentioned earlier, the game aged my sims really oddly while I was playing my main legacy house. Sam was a baby just born that day when I left the house. When I came back to play them, Sam was a child. He should have been a toddler with normal game ages. And, they’d moved houses!!! I spent hours building that house; you can’t move! So I moved them back. And I installed awesomemod.

Anyway, here’s Sam.

Winchester Legacy525

Sam Winchester

  1. Loves the Outdoors
  2. Absentminded
  3. Technophobe

Well since I had no say in this, I guess I can live with that. Sam looks very much like his daddy (Matty). He has Matty’s black hair and Matty’s dark blue eyes. Both of these genes were also fully Morgana’s. He even has Matty’s nose.

Oddly, when I come into the house it seems like Brenna and Matty are having lover quarrel over something. No idea what. I found the cutest interaction, though. “You seem upset” or something like that. Matty performed it on Brenna, and it seemed to fully calm her down.

Winchester Legacy526

Good thing, because I’m ready to work on baby number two. I had intended to wait a little while to get Brenna further along in her career, but since Sam is already a child, we might as well.

Matty’s doing pretty well in his medical job, but we still need lots of money for a much bigger house now. So he spends his evenings fishing for death fish. He makes $2,000-$3,000 a night catching death fish. Now we can expand the house to make room for the new baby.

Winchester Legacy543

Game time flies. The baby is coming!

Winchester Legacy539

Welcome home, Tommy Winchester. Tommy is the baby, not to be confused with his uncle, Toby, in the background. For True Blood fans, yes, they are intended to be Sam Merlotte and Tommy.

Tommy Winchester

  1. Loves the Outdoors
  2. Heavy Sleeper

He’s really cute. I think he has Brenna’s skin tone. But where are his eyes from? They are NOT the Jessie Winchester hazel-green. They are not Morgana/Matty/Sam’s dark blue. And they aren’t Mommy Brenna’s aqua either.

For comparison, Matty:

Even going back to Jessie:


I read in the Prima Guide that sometimes sims get random genetics. I guess Tommy got random genetics.

Sam and Tommy playing together is just the cutest thing.

Sorry, not many pictures this post. Matty spends like ALL his time at the hospital. He’s all call like all the time, it seems. I have trouble keeping up with his needs sometimes because of it. Brenna raises the kids, plays for tips in the park, and works as a rock musician. I did get her to pick the rock career tract, and she has a black tour bus now.

The Werewolves of Baton Rouge—Jessie Part 4

I switch back to the main legacy house to see how we did without any mods with story progression and aging off.  Crap!  Morgana is now at the top of her career.  The girls, that had just become little girls, now are on the honor roll.  Okay, I guess I shouldn’t be too upset about this, but those were challenges *I* wanted to accomplish.  I didn’t want the game to get me to the top without me.  It was at this point I decided to install awesomemod.

Anyway, it’s family time.  Yay!

Winchester Legacy388

The Winchesters just built a pool, so I decided to have my first pool party.  I do love that you can choose the clothing category for your party.  I had hoped that the pool would let Christy gain athletic skill, but it doesn’t.  It also doesn’t seem to count as a cardio workout for the skill challenge.  Oh well, it’s still fun.

Winchester Legacy401

At the party are two adorable young boys the triplets met at school.  Since I have three girls I need to marry off, chances are both of them will end up joining my family.

I discovered an amazing new feature in sims 3.  You can change not only last names but full names of sims!  So that means that all of my spouses, I can pick their names!!!  All those characters I have written that have spouses in my role-play canon, well now I can just change their significant other’s names to the name of their spouse in canon.  So I’m going to introduce these sims by their eventual names.

Winchester Legacy395

Rene Cormier—What a beautiful young man.  Love his genetics!

Winchester Legacy396

Connor Baum—He’s a real cutie too.

Amber and Alicia get to know the boys.  We’ll have to keep looking for a special friend for Christy.

Winchester Legacy399

Winchester Legacy403

Winchester Legacy406

Amber’s already planning out their future being kings and queens of the legacy world.

Winchester Legacy446

It’s about Toby’s birthday, time for him to be a young adult.  He’s been really good friends with Allyson for all of his teens.  She’s really kind to him and listens to all of his thoughts and feelings, and doesn’t really seem to mind that he’s a loner.  He wants to be with her and talk to her a lot too.

Winchester Legacy410

But he’s never been able to move their relationship in a romantic direction.  He’s just too shy.  But finally, on the night of his birthday, he decides to take a chance.  “Allyson, I want to tell you something.  I . . . I . . . I . . . well . . . I . . .”

Winchester Legacy414

Finally he just kisses her, sure she’s going to reject him.

Winchester Legacy415

She seems to like it.

Winchester Legacy417

Toby:  “So . . . um . . . do you want to be my girlfriend?”  Soooooo cute.  Of course she says yes.

Winchester Legacy418

A very happy boy, Toby has his birthday.

Winchester Legacy423

Winchester Legacy439

Toby Winchester

  1. Loves the Outdoors
  2. Loner
  3. Good Sense of Humor
  4. Good
  5. Handy

LTW—Reach the top of the Science Career

Science doesn’t really fit the real Toby, but the skills do—fishing, gardening, and handiness.  Toby loves working on all those skills, so science it is for him.

Toby wants to stay with his girlfriend, so I age her up with him too.

Winchester Legacy440

Wow, when she became an adult she really put on a lot of weight!  She was chubby and big as a teen, but she’s HUGE as an adult.  I looked using a cheat and she’s actually fat but also nearly all the way to the top muscular.  She’s just a big in charge girl.  And her hair, oh my God that Maxis standard brown hair color is HORRIBLE.  It looks GREEN.  But Toby really loves her, so he proposes.

Winchester Legacy447

She’s super, super excited and happy about it.

Winchester Legacy448

Winchester Legacy450

Toby is just in awe that she said yes.  Look at how reverently he’s putting her ring on her finger.

Definitely make-over time!

Winchester Legacy456

That’s much better.  She’s pretty, but I don’t really like her eye color.  I’m worried about the eye and hair color genetics being passed down if Toby is the heir.

Allyson Dubose

  1. Artistic
  2. Angler
  3. Good Sense of Humor
  4. Photographer’s Eye
  5. Perfectionist

LTW—Visionary—Master the Photography and Painting Skills

Well at least I like her personality.  She and Toby have a lot in common (fishing, good sense of humor), and artistic sims are very helpful in a legacy family for portraits.

Toby and Allyson get married right away.  But I finally get to throw a wedding party the way I want with staging and the new custom wedding object I bought from the sims store.

The most adorable flower girls ever

Winchester Legacy468

Allyson is not letting her man get away.  This kind of suits the personality she puts off in game.  She’s tying that man to her right now, and running down the aisle.

Winchester Legacy470

The happy couple

The Ceremony

Winchester Legacy481

And the bride is a very happy lady

Winchester Legacy487

The triplets are ready to be teens, so I have their birthday party at the wedding.  That gets us wedding cake too.  It irritates me sooo much that there’s no wedding cake in sims 3.  I miss wedding cake and champagne glasses.  Even buying the sims store wedding pack, it at least SHOWS a wedding cake on the buffet table, but there’s no cake.

Winchester Legacy489

Winchester Legacy491

On the left in the picture above, that’s baby Sam, by the way.  Um, yeah, my timing thing didn’t work at all.  I’ll show you him again in the next update after a makeover.

Winchester Legacy492

Christy Winchester

  1. Loves the Outdoors
  2. Brave
  3. Athletic
  4. Friendly

LTW—Reach the top of the Special Agent Career

Intended Partner—Andres March, he’s a firefighter that’s much older than her, but she is really drawn to him.  The policewoman/fireman pairing interests me, and I want a firefighter in the family.

Winchester Legacy501

Alicia Winchester

  1. Loves the Outdoors
  2. Excitable
  3. Ambitious
  4. Flirty

LTW—Reach the top  of the Medical Career (I know Matty is working on medical, but I haven’t done it as a LTW)

Intended Partner—Connor Baum, see his portrait above

Winchester Legacy505

Amber Winchester

  1. Loves the Outdoors
  2. Good
  3. Artistic
  4. Hopeless Romantic

LTW—Illustrious Author—Max Writing and Painting Skills

Intended Partner—Rene Cormier, see picture above

Allyson is such a happy bride.  She keeps looking at her ring ALL THE TIME!

Winchester Legacy502

Amber starts writing right away.  My thought is to play her like she really is an author, kind of like the career with the ambitions pack (which I don’t have yet).

Winchester Legacy514

And Toby is working on quite the legacy garden.  It will help with his science career, but also we could use some of the special plants like Ambrosia ingredients and death fruit.

Winchester Legacy522

Okay everyone I need your help.  I really need to choose an heir.  This is my last post in this household before I’m caught up to my current game play.  I can say that all the sims are married off now, but I haven’t picked an heir or moved any of the candidates out yet.  Help me pick.  Here are the choices I have it narrowed down to:


Winchester Legacy517

Toby’s Pros:

  1. I like his appearance
  2. His personality is adorable
  3. He’s my ‘favorite’ of the sims

Toby’s Cons:

  1. His hair is actually black, I’ve been dying it to Jessie’s custom color because I wanted that, and I worry that the Jessie genetic hair won’t get passed down
  2. I hate his wife’s hair and eye color


Winchester Legacy511

Christy’s Pros

  1. She’s the prettiest of the sims
  2. I like her hair and eye color

Christy’s Cons

  1. Her potential husband is much older and I’m going to have to do something miraculous (like lots of Ambrosia or life fruit) to keep him young enough

or Amber

Winchester Legacy513

Amber’s Pros

  1. I like her hair and eye genetics
  2. I have the most planned out as far as her children’s names and personlities
  3. Her spouse is the most attractive spouse with the most interesting spouse genetics

Amber’s Cons

  1. Her face looks a little odd from the side in-game
