THE SHUFFLE BUILD-YOUR-OWN CHALLENGE:

Set your ipod/music library/etc. on random, and list the first ten songs. Then, create a rule for each generation based on that song. It doesn't have to be "what the song is about", just somehow loosely tied to the song or lyrics.

Version 1 )


And, because I like making up rules based on music, another version-

Version 2 )



Heh... wow. Lots of death and breakups in these rules. Might be a fun way to play.

I've said numerous times that I'm not particularly good at sticking to just one or two projects at once, no matter what it is I'm doing. In the case of sims, well... I usually have four or five things going, plus a few neighborhoods for just playing. I tend to want to talk/write about whatever projects I have, and this usually means I end up writing a story for it, as well... And then not update because I'm working on something else.

So, I figure, I ought to at least try to keep track of what I'm doing by keeping a Project List in my LJ, with notes as to whether I intend to write anything soon or if it's even being written about (yet) at all. And... that's what this post is.

Remember this post? Yeah, I wasn't going to write a story about all that, but I can't seem to shut up about it over on boolprop.com anyway, so I figured I might as well.

Growing Up Shadows- Part One, SimSilvain's Childhood

This probably won't be updated very often, since I'm trying to play more of my legacy and the Legacy Haven, but I couldn't help but write it. Some things just seem to *need* to be shared, mainly because I like what I'm doing enough to write about it, and I can't seem to avoid mentioning it.

I keep getting distracted. I was browsing the challenge list the other day because someone mentioned a challenge in a thread I was reading on boolprop.com and I was curious about it, and then the original sim challenge (I think- the one where you raise your simself from toddler all the way through life) caught my interest- so now I'm playing my simself's family in a new neighborhood, with simselves of my parents for the first time ever. I'm not actually following the rules of the challenge, honestly- it just got the idea of playing my family into my brain.

My father is a fortune/pop sim whose original LTW was to earn 100,000- he's he first sim I've gotten permaplat without cheating, ever, which makes me feel a bit pathetic since I've been playing long enough to get the hang of a lot of things in the game, just not the whole permaplat thing, since most of them are either ridiculously hard, ridiculously time-consuming, or don't roll up when I can manage them. My mother is a family/knowledge sim with an LTW of six grandkids- I can manage that at the rate I'm playing, I think. So far, my simself is a child still, but I'm playing almost nonstop because I love playing this. My simself has a baby brother now (thanks to ACR), and we have a servo, Bott, who was created to take care of him. Bott started out a family sim, and since I needed him platinum to change his aspiration (so I could keep him happy easier), I randomized his gender preference and got him a date- Joe Carr (Bott randomized gay), who he subsequently got engaged to and married. They'll probably move out once Shenandoah Ray (my simself's brother, blame my mom for the name, I asked her what she'd have named a son and that's what she came up with) is a child. Right now, the family (minus Bott, Joe, and Shenandoah) is on a Twikki island vacation, because I love Twikki island.

So, yeah, that's the (current) excuse for lack of updates on everything. I really do need to get back to playing the Legacy Haven or my legacy, but... not yet.
