1.5 An Update Full of Success

Ace is getting real close to completing her LTW.


Emi has her birthday and gains the Good Sense of Humor trait. She’s also super adorable, even though she always looks kinda sad.

Sheri is working her way up in her career.


Coy has his birthday too, gaining the Green Thumb trait and looking super unimpressed.


I let Emi’s imaginary friend, Jelly Bean, out.


Some cute puddle jumping because this family is pretty boring enough that this is interesting.


Coy freaks out about a trap turning his hair pink, even though his hair is normally pink.


The extra baby is born. His name is Ellas and his traits are insane and genius. His favourites are Egyptian music, tofu dogs and purple.


Avi was asked on a date with a girl who never showed up so he decided to read on the beach in the middle of the night. You know, normal teen stuff.


See what I mean when I say that Emi always looks sad?


Sheri decides to dumpster dive after work.


Poor, permanently sad child,

Avi gets on the Honor Roll, and does manage to stay on it for 3 days.


Ace completes her LTW, giving the house a lovely collection of art.


And finally, Ellas has his birthday, growing into an adorable toddler.

1.4 Time for Quality Family Time

Coy has decided to join Sheri in enjoying the snow. Between the two of them there’s a snowman army beginning to form.

Avi is now a teen, so of course he has to act up and destroy stuff. The other snowmen look on in horror as they watch him take them out one by one.

I’m not even joking about Avi taking out the snowmen, he just decided to spend some time destroying all of the snowmen his family had worked so hard on.

Aside from the horrible snowman murders Avi is a great teen to have in the house. He is constantly taking care Emi, he’s even more attentive than Sheri is.

He also cleans the house on his own.

And plays with his little brother.

Sheri has adult birthday, and looks the same because that’s how these birthdays work.

VERY rarely I see the kids playing with things that aren’t their imaginary friends, and it always shocks me so much I immediately take a picture.

Ace creates her first masterpiece, she is slowly moving towards completing her lifetime wish.

This moment was great, because I saw that Sheri was going to interact with Avi, so I decided to follow her. The two stood completely still for a second and then Sheri pulled out a pillow and smacked Avi in the face with it.

This is not a good sign. I replace regular woohoo with risky woohoo on the Woohooer, and am thinking I might regret that fact. I changed it pretty quickly after this.

The party decided to have an outing to the spring festival.

Ace and Sheri use this machine to prove their love.

Coy immediately goes to sleep on a bench.

And Ace spends some time with Emi, who is just super adorable.

The family gets a photo together which is pretty cute.


Avi has prom and is prom king. He also gets a romantic interest who he then proceeds to never see.

And, as expected, Ace is pregnant again. This baby is an extra and wont be considered at all for the challenge as far as points go.

1.3 A Lot of Birthdays

Ace spends a lot of time teaching toddler skills and therefore has very little time to work on her lifetime wish. I’m just praying she has enough time to complete it before Emi takes over.

I don’t really know why I took this picture, but it’s kind of creepy, so I’m gonna keep it. The snowman was made by Sheri, maybe it’s sad its mother is leaving it for her Sim children.

I don’t think that’s how you take care of a baby?

Avi likes to play with his imaginary friend in the bathroom, to the annoyance of everyone else in the house.

I try to make sure Ace doesn’t spend all of her time taking care of babies and working on her lifetime wish. She makes sure to spend some time with the kids and Sheri when she can.

With the house upgrade the children actually got toys, but Avi still just does this. If I was Ace I would be making sure he doesn’t stand on that cahir, it doesn’t seem stable at all.

Ace has her birthday on the way to complete a street art commission somewhere other than her house.

A quick makeover later and Ace is ready to graffiti the library.

Coy has his birthday, and gains the supernatural fan trait.

And Emi has a birthday as well. She’s pretty cute, although it’s a shame that she didn’t get a mix of Ace and Sheri’s colouring like Coy did.

Interesting  potty training technique, but who am I to talk? Ace is on her third child and I’ve never potty trained any children.

I’ve already mentioned that Sheri is an attentive parent, this seems a little over the top though.

Yay! a child playing with something other than an imaginary friend. Sometimes Avi makes himself breakfast instead of eating what his parents have made. It’s not necessarily a healthy option, but it’s pretty cute.

And then it’s back to the imaginary friends. I kind of love the colouring on Emi’s doll, so I think I might make her real. She probably wont be a spouse though.

Both of these kids are geniuses, so they love to play chess together.

Avi has his birthday, gaining the natural cook trait. I think he’s a pretty attractive sim, although I do hate the hair colour, he might have to change it up a bit at some point.

And of course, on the night after his teen birthday Avi is abducted. These aliens are a little obsessed with this house.

1.2 Lots of Kid Updates

As the title says: this update is mostly just births and birthdays for kids.

Ace is finally able to actually make some money with street art. It’s not a lot and it’s not consistent, but the family has a pretty quick way to get some cash if they need some new furniture.

These are mostly to show Ace and Sheri being cute together. The co-parenting moments are adorable.

Also, as you can see from the picture, Ace got the hover bed. It’s pretty much always one of the first rewards I get, and this family REALLY needed it, because they couldn’t afford a bed for Avi when he grew up.

Birthday time for Avi!

He’s a pretty cute kid, and his skin tone seems a little bit lighter than Ace’s, so I can actually take pictures of him. He adds the disciplined trait with this birthday.

There really isn’t anything for Avi to do around the house, so it’s pretty much this and playing with his imaginary friend in the bathroom.

Coy also had a birthday, he’s a solid combination of Ace and Sheri’s colouring.

Ace falls pregnant with baby number 3 now that she can actually afford beds for all the children. This baby is the last chance to get a female for a matriarchy.

Sheri is probably one of the best Sims, she is constantly taking care of Coy. Most of the time when I tell Ace to feed him Sheri has done it before she even gets there.

I believe this is Ace’s second abduction, and I’m pretty sure Sheri has had a couple more at this point to. Point is: Aliens can’t get enough of this family.

Sheri spends a lot of time playing in the snow, it’s pretty cute and means that there are nice winter decorations outside the house, which I appreciate.

Time for baby 3!

I’m not gonna lie, baby 3 was a boy. I really wanted to do a matriarchy, so I just fixed it in CAS. Anyway, Emi is friendly and loves the outdoors. Her favourites are indie music, crepes and violet.

I figured I’d finish this chapter off with a house update. Ace was able to do a couple of commissions and now the kids have their own room with toys they’ll never use.

1.1 Getting Started

Quick warning before this post – these images are from a few days of play, I had intended to post small updates on Tumblr to begin with, but it didn’t really feel right, so I decided I needed to actually post this challenge.

This is my first attempt back at posting about a Sims challenge in a while, so be patient.


Meet my founder, Ace Attozedd (A surname I used in a previous name game attempt). Her traits are adventurous, avant garde, clumsy, good and artistic with the lifetime wish to be Street Credible. Favourites are classical music, sushi and hot pink.

In the future I will live to regret making her skin so dark, it looks great but it’s hard to see her face in pictures.

Ace’s starter ‘home’ isn’t great and she doesn’t seem impressed.

Luckily it doesn’t take too long for Ace to find someone in town she likes, and luckily I also like her (since I usually just let my Sims date anyone who they’re attracted to).

Like any good legacy founder Ace wastes no time. The couple has a quick wedding and then I struggle to get enough money so Sheri can have somewhere to sleep.

There’s still a while before the challenge becomes an ISBI challenge, so pretty much all Sheri does is fish.

The couple is pretty cute together.

This picture is mostly here to show that Ace is pregnant with baby number 1, since I never took any other pictures while she was pregnant.

I also didn’t take any while baby number 1, Avi, was an infant. He’s a pretty cute toddle, even if he does have random brown hair. His traits are excitable and genius. His favourites are digitunes, tofu dogs and green.

Sheri moving in allowed the family to actually have a house. Also this is apparently after the second baby way born, I guess I never took a picture of him. His name is coy and his traits are genius and loves the cold. His favourites are indie music, vegetarian fish and chips and aqua.

And we’ll end this post with Sheri getting abducted. Aliens love Sheri and Ace, they get abducted a lot. I think this is around the time I decided to make the challenge an ISBI, so the next update should hopefully be a little bit more interesting.
