Okay, the Cooke legacy is on hold. I'm fairly sure this was obvious by now, but still. This is because my laptop is finally completely fixed, but I'm lacking an expansion pack (Pets) due to the fact that I didn't get the extended download thing and have run out of times I can download it. So, the Cooke Legacy (along with most of my other projects) is stuck on the desktop computer, which is actually my mom's, and I don't get to use it very often, so I can't play, so I can't update.

But, I've started on a new legacy which I'm probably going to put on LJ instead of the exchange, because I've been using Gadwin PrintScreen and find my pictures look a lot nicer that way. I've got about a fifth of a chapter, maybe... might be less, it depends on how much I want to put in the first chapter... but you can expect to see something by sometime next week, hopefully.

Warning- picture behind cut is incredibly large.

Okay, so, today was my birthday, and this weekend I got to go see my boyfriend up at his college, and generally had fun- my aunt went with me and my mom up there, and my aunt is possibly one of the most fun people ever, so I couldn't have not had fun, really. But, the point of this post is less to babble about my weekend and more to squee over what I got.

My aunt gave me fifty bucks. Naturally, as I desperately wanted AL still, I went and bought it at the Wal-Mart there. As soon as we got back, I got on the computer and installed it, and now I'm going to go play around once I finish catching up on everything I missed this weekend.

I desperately want Apartment Life- I have ever since I heard about the witches, I think- but I can't get it because I can't afford it right now. And if I could, I'd have the lovely internal debate of "do I pull all my hacks and install it now, or do I wait until they're updated for it and install it then?", which would eventually end in "pull the hacks, I'm not that patient", as it tends to.

And everyone is talking about getting it, it seems, even though I'm sure my mind is exaggerating things, and I wish I could just go out and get it right now. And I CAN'T, and it's just making me even more impatient, and it's driving me insane.

(In other news, I do already have a neighborhood set up to test it out in/play with it in, in case the hacks I use regularly aren't updated by the time I *do* get it. The neighborhood is completely empty and won't be touched at all until I get it....)

(Also, for anyone who has it- please, go ahead and tell me how awesome it is! I'll sit here jealously, but I'll be thankful in the long run.)

I was seriously getting frustrated with how many awesome houses I keep seeing from people who have FT, and not being able to download them. Plus, I wanted secondary aspirations back, because I loved those.

I'd like to point out that I always roll for a sim's aspiration by the time they become a toddler, or right after they do. I have a notebook where I keep all their stats- zodiac, personality points, aspiration, and original turn ons and turn offs, just so I don't forget any of this.

I decided I'd roll for secondary aspirations for all the kids born in the legacy haven. Anyone who rolled their primary aspiration wouldn't get a secondary, but everyone else would. It is insane how many times Popularity rolled up- at least half of the ones who didn't have it as their primary aspiration rolled it. Which means most of them are popularity sims now, since several rolled it as their primary as well.

I don't mind this- I was hoping they'd have some sort of close community or something, especially since half of them are related somehow- but I've only recently started to get better at playing popularity sims and getting sims to interact without double minuses everywhere.

Only two sims rolled their primary aspiration- Daniel and Gabby- which I kind of like, because I feel like Daniel at least is very suited to his aspiration.

I haven't gotten around to doing much on any other projects, unfortunately, but there should be another Legacy Haven update out soon-ish. I'm finishing about one house on the rotation every day I have time to play, which means probably by the end of the week, if I don't end up getting pulled into some other idea or something.


Also, I have a thread on for the Legacy Haven, because I'm really hoping more people (especially those whose simselves and legacy sims I'm using) will see it.

And direct-downloading EPs.

It's actually better than a disk- you can redownload them as much as necessary as long as you can login, which means- woot, no need to earn 90 bucks just to get my missing EPs back, just a lot of patience with the download time- about 2 hours per ep..... So, I should have Seasons, Pets, and BV back by morning. Assuming my mom doesn't wake up and kick me off, then it'll probably take until tomorrow afternoon or so-I'm redownloading Pets right now, because my simself needs her dog (who is based on my dream dog, an adorable, funloving, playful, friendly Chihuahua named Aztec) and possibly to meet a wolf (and be turned into a werewolf, because I love werewolves, in sims and otherwise).

I'll probably work on getting Daniel through college in my legacy hood soon, since I haven't managed it yet due to issues with the game not loading due to some corrupted CC that I had to fight with finding yesterday, and my wanting to play a sim I made for no reason but the use of awesome CC hairs and clothes today- who now has his own backstory, personality, and five growing businesses (I <3 fortune sims!) which I built from scratch (mostly) for him.

Also, the Legacy Haven will be switching to seasonal rotations after this rotation finishes.

Apparently, I have to reinstall a bunch of stuff- including Sims. Which sucks, because three of my EPs (pets, seasons, and bv) were bought/installed via direct download from the ea store site. Which means I have no disc to reinstall them with. Which, essentially, means I have a backup of my game that requires me to have three EPs I................. no longer have. Just frickin' great.

I suppose I'll have to wait until I get a job (hopefully I'll have one soon, I'm waiting to hear back from the library, so....) and can afford to buy them. I should've had the sense to buy the actual discs in the first place, but I was lazy, and didn't, and now it's biting me in the butt. I hate my luck.

However, to make up for all the venting/frustration I've done here lately, I'll give you a few pics of Tyger O'Connell and what I've done so far with that legacy.
