hmmm




so ive come to a little.. standstill of sorts. my latest legacy heir has come of age, and now i need to decide what hidden trait to pursue this generation. his genetics are perfect, and i really dont want to sully my fine lineage with yet another bleh EA NPC, but i guess i hafta.
so my current traits are pyro, rocker, vampire, apprehend burglar, can salute, makes no messes, and burglar.
since asian culture trait was lost from the line a few generations back, i was considering taking him to china to find a nice girl there. but ..well i only found 1 nice looking girl there the LAST time, and it took me 3 generation to get rid of that nose.
i could try for the french culture trait, or egypt, but havent found any desirables there either. :/
then there is his imaginary friend. its a girl, and she kinda has a crush on him. im pretty sure that is he were to hook up with her, there is some kinda imaginary friend traits. (not positive)
and the only one left i believe, is pizza aficionado. which is probably like the rocker trait an does absolutely nothing.

so i dont know which one to shoot for. taking requests, comments, etc lol.
(you can catch up on the family on my other blog, link to the right) ------>

more adventures in Skyrim

so i am lev 32 or so now. i only had 1 toon in oblivion that even made it that far. the leveling system is a bit easier this time around i think. you level doing things you.. well.. do. performing just about any skill will level you up, and the more you do that action, the more you level THAT skill. its awesome :).
oblivion was similar, but i think they cut away alot of the extra stuff and got  it more pure. meh, im bad at explaining things.
anyhooo... my toon got married today :D wee. there is this mercenary guy in the town of Marcath who i like to hire. it costs 500 gold, but hes a good fighter and hes got some amusing commentary. after the Kajiit henchmen i had wouldnt marry me (no option came up for him, im not sure why) i went and talked to the mercenary, and he was interested :D
so now we are married and i can hire him for free, muahaha. and he lives in my house.
i have several. im not sure yet which towns all have houses, but so far i have houses in Whiterun, Riften, Solitude, and Windhelm. Windhelm was hard.
SPOILER
i joined the imperial army pretty early on, so that made almost everyone in windhelm my enemy right out, since that is where the rebellion base is. i wasnt sure if i would EVER be able to get  house there.
i did all the quests i could for thw jarl and the townsfolk, but never got the option so i assumed i couldnt get one if im an imperial.
so after completeing the imperial storyline and conquering Windhelm, things in town arent too much different.
BUT, today, at my wedding, was one of the high ranking guys from Windhelm, dont remember his name, somthing Shield. i helped his family investigate the murder of his daughter.  well as we were leaving the wedding, he turned to me and told me i could buy property in wildhelm... which i found odd since he isnt the jarl OR the steward of that town.
well i ran over there right away and sure enough i was able to buy property.. and WOW what a house.
Windhelm is kind of a shitty looking town, all beat up and worn out. and the house has a slight flavor of that as well, but i think so far, this is my favorite house. i like it even more than my fancy villa in Solitude.
its got a shit ton of storage space, several weapon racks, mannequins for armor, and an enchanting station. (which i cant afford yet, but the steward had one for sale)
the place is HUGE. it doesnt look it from the outside at all. and the funny thing is, its the house from the murder quest... i had ALREADY been sleeping there for free since i knew it was unoccupied hahaha.
well, now i can furnish it. and all the bloodstains and bones and stuff are still there, so i love the ambiance.
so maybe me and my newlywed mercenary hubby will make that our main residence. too bad Windhelm itself is kinda of a dump.
ive only got 20 levs in smithing to go untill i can craft dragon armor. i cant wait! i been working on smithing since early in the game, and i have been growing in skill slowly but steadily, only using what i find or mine myself.
wont be long now :)
this game is so unbelievable.. i simply love every minute

im a werewolf XD

i had seen a few werewolves running around skyrim, and wondered if it was possible.. in oblivion you could be a vampire.. but it was only rumored whether or not you could become a were wolf.
well, it turned out werewolves were NOT possible in oblivion, but they ARE in skryim! ive become one, whoopee!
i think there is somthing terribly funny about a kajiit werewolf lol.
i just hope it doesnt suck. being a vampire kinda sucked. it made your toon really ugly and it was hard as hell to get quests done when everyone feared you.
it DID make you super strong ans awesome tho. so here hoping my new life as a werewolf goes well ^_^

my adventures in skyrim so far

so ive been playing since early friday morning (about 2am) on and off cause my bf plays too and i been trying to sneak in some sims time. i made a kajiit. i have always like the kajiit people.

(this is a kajiit from  elder scrolls oblivion)
the graphics are WAY more awesome in skyrim. 


my character looks similar to this.  (im not playing on pc so i cant get any screenshots of my own)
her name is Kaligraa. since i knew nothing about this new map, or the game mechanics, i decided to go with the main storyline for a bit to help me learn the ropes.
it wasnt a bad plan, as now i can lev 10, own my own house, and have a slave girl.

ive just started finding some nice magical gear, and hooking my toon up with goodies. (and killed a few dragons too) but im stil a LONG way off from being uber. there is plenty in the world running around that can kill my ass quick lol.

the hot slot inventory system is a little different... and not as easy to get used too, imo. im getting the hang of it, but im dying alot in the meantime because i cant get to things in a hurry. i also miss the duplicate items cheat lol. (MAN i loved that)

you can do crafting in this game. take raw items like gold and diamonds, and craft your own necklaces and rings. take raw ore and make ingots, turn ingots into items. turn hide into leather, and leather into gear. its very involved, but not very difficult. its alot of fun.

there is a 'taxi' horse and carriage that can take you to new cities (for a price) and you can of course own a horse too. i love having a horse, so i of course bought one. but its a little wierd riding it. you dont get the first person view like while you are walking around, so its kinda hard to control.

i also kinda miss how you could see your toon in the inventory menu in oblvivion, and see all your weapons and gear. you dont see your toon hardly at all in skyrim, so the awesome looking weaponry and gear is almost a waste. you do have these cool little cut scenes tho when you do a killer move.

well im not going to give any specifics, cause i dont do spoilers, but in case your on the fence about this game, and are wondering if its good, i cant tell you, IT IS AWESEOME. i highly recommend, for any elder scrolls fan, or even just someone who like dungeon crawler rpg type games.

its certainly an adventure you will never forget <3

just when i think i finaly find the right one

the right hairmesh i mean, for my simself. its so hard to find one that resembles my real hair. but im extramly picky.. this one is too poofy, that one is too long, this one is too wavy, etc.

well i found one that looks really good in CAS. its not exactly right, but its the closest one ive seen so far.. well doesnt it just figure, i get in in game and it looks like shit.

gaps in the mesh everywhere, huge bald space  on the hairline, color is dreadful... man im so dissapointed. 
looked GREAT in CAS.. thats like ll false advertising :(


cant see all the flaws from this pic, but you CAN see the hairline baldyness..
waa

just sharing some of my adventures

so ive been playing this sim named Lin Mu Bai (well attempting to play her, with all the CTD)
ive grown quite attached to her. for some reason, i dont have many pics of her. wel anyhoo, i made her basicaly just to play with the white unicorn i made in CAS. she was never intended to be a vampire. but the random sim that rolled up in CAS was a vampire, and i said, hey why not, and just went and sculpted her.
of course, if i had been thinking clearly i would have realized that an equestrian and gardening oriented sim was going to be a considerable challenge if she can only come out at night.

sure i can go to the science lab and cure her, but i love her as she is way too much. well anyway, she started with the unicorn, like i said, then she wanted to adopt a horse from the newspaper. so i did.

 i got this funny looking mare. she bred with the unicorn and i got 2 funny looking colts. one had a horn, but he had no unicorn powers. so, i end up selling all 3. then i adopt a few more horses and breed them both together. i got some strange mixes that time.


these 2 parents



created these 2 foals. arent they neat?

well it was about here i think that the game went syko and started all this CTD bullshit every 10 minutes, (well it might have been a little before then) so its been REALLY tough to continue past here. slowly tho i have made some progress.

Lin is as you may have guessed from her picture, Chinese. and since i dont want monster babies with bad genetics, i wanted to find her a nice looking Chinese mate. took her to china, but didnt find much. best looking guy there was married and completely not interested.


there were a few chinese guys around town who i had made and placed around to be townies, but they were also either married or uninterested.

well, the good thing about being a vampire (well one of the good things) is that you have the advantage of time. while she is still going about her daily thing, the other chinese townsfolk grew old, and had grownup children.
one of whom, was quite attractive, and available.


she met Josef Won at the consignment store one afternoon. (story progression named and dressed him, dont blame me)
but he is the son i would assume, of Christine and Cho Sen Won, who i placed in town 'years' ago. not a bad looking fella.for weeks she has been trying to chat this guy up, invite him over, hang out, but he has been elusive. it took a while to get him into the friend zone.



despite compatible signs, they didnt really 'click' right away once she finaly got him over. well, the FIRST time they did. i got a notice form story progression, that he (josef) had broken up with his girlfriend. that night he invited Lin to a party at his house. she schmoozed him up and they were romantic interests before long. she got her first kiss, and then, BLAMMO CTD.

i also lost this foal out of my mare and unicon


since i hadnt saved the game after his birth that day. so,needless to say, i was a bit annoyed. so after much griping at the universe in general, i fired the game up again. a half hour loading time later...

my foal grows up again, yay! what a looker he is, eh? what an odd assortment of colors and markings. i cant wait to breed him.

and my YinYang foal is born again, to my delight, not only does he have the same markings as before, but NOW hes also a unicorn. hey a crash did something usefull for once. excepting my botched date with josef, grrr.

so she invites him over.. but THIS time he doesnt break up with his girlfriend in story preogression. NOOO. so i have to try to seduce him even tho hes taken.
well, thanx to woohooer mod, it was a success. (eventualy) she got him into the shower, and his girlfriend will be none the wiser. her vampire powers bewitched him, he was puddy in her hands. and now she is carrying his lurve baby teehee


im not sure why i told this little tale, save for that i REALLY love this family and i felt like talking about her.
im excited to see how her baby will turn out! i hope his features are blended well and he doesnt look freeky. ive bad luck mixing asian sims before, but i think i picked a good match this time. im also really excited about my herd. they are having such lovely babies! all the coat varietys, are so neat! well. i gues thats the end :P

hey yoo mares

i cant find that world you mentioned by RFlong. it looks like its right up my alley and i want to try it! where is itttt???
i looked all thru the world index, and on the CAW forum and i cant find it. :(

well that didnt last long

played for about 20 minutes and then the screen froze up while trying to move my simbot out of the house. yay. i think im done with sims today.
and wtf is the point of simbots, when ALL the sims seem to be grossed out by them? every time he walks into a room, the whole family is like 'ahh a simbot!' its kinda stupid

so lets see if i get to play today

without CTD every 10 minutes. i dont get it. when i start up a new town (or old one) and play a family, the first day or 2 goes great, no issues. but, it seems the longer i play any given family, the more CTD i get. i get about 1 generations worth of play. so, the kids would just be about getting to toddlers, and CTD, CTD, CTD. over and over.

its irritating. i have to keep abandoning my favorite familys to go play another one, just to actualy PLAY. maybe ill try my Ovevil family again today. they were CTD on me a few days ago, and i moves to the Goth's, then they did it, and i moved to another house.

so lets see if i can play today without throwing a shoe at my screen
