the devil is the details

well i tried to smooth the mountain  a lot, since the background mountain are gentle rolling hills and not jaggedy mountains. almost there, but not quite. but the most pain in the ass part of today was making the road. im sick and tired of the default roads, but i can never put together a custom one very well. there just never seems to be the correct opacity maps or corner pieces. UGH. took me HOURS to get a road that looks even remotely decent.

so thats it for today, im aggravated. tomorrow i guess ill start on the roads and making the basic layout. still trying to find the perfect spot for my legacy family.. looks like i wont have one in THIS town either haha

ok need some advice

after months of searching everywhere on the internet and NOT coming up with any worlds that seem to do it for me, i went to the forum for help.
that proved futile and people just told me to do what i have been doing all along anyway, (gee i  never would have thought to check the world index, thanks!) so in desperation, i decided to reinstall CAW and hope it works on my machine this time.

so far so good, but we wont really know for sure, untill my world is in its final stages and i need to use edit in game... cause THAT was where it always had problems. so yay lucky me, i wont know if my work is all for nothing untill its almost over!

well anyway

ive started building a new one. hopefully THIS one wont be total crap. and trying to go out of my way to add the features i want is proving to be a huge pain in the ass as well. i got almost the perfect place for my legacy family to live BUT.. the view is on the wrong side.. DOH.

well i need some tips as to how to proceed. since i dont have a …

its a little more traumatizing that i expected

was goofin off yesterday on google, and decided to try to find one of the houses i lived in when i was a kid. since it was the only one i could remember the address to, and i have the most memories from that place. i moved there when i was about 8 or 9 i guess and lived there till 12. but that place holds some of the most memories for me.
riding my bike up and down the hills, hunting for frogs and turtles in the pond, catching snakes in the rock piles, picking berries. i had the entire wilderness to myself. it was glorious.

well, i went and found the house. well, i found where it USED to be.. its gone. just.. gone. no house in its place, just an empty spot. it got completely knocked down 0_0

the neighbors house is still there. the pond is still there, everything else was where it should be, so i know i found the right spot. just no house.

that house was over 300 hundred years old. it might have been a pretty shitty house, but it was history, man. how can you just knock down a 300 year…

times they are a-changin

much like his namesake, Forrest grew tired of the mismatched home his ancestors built, and decided to use his fortune to tear it down and rebuild.


 cant forget the greenhouse :)


 and then he wasted no time in girlfriend collecting. he is on 7 out of 10.


 ahh kirsten djiin. we never did get to have a relationship. maybe it will help if i flirt with you at your party.


 in front of your husband

 the relatives came by to check out the new house. they seem satisfied


 ahh so it DID work. somebody got dumped and came crawling to old Forrest for some lovin. he gave her some lovin all right. and sent her packin


 then back to this red headed monstrosity, whatever her name is. shes proving to be a stubborn one.


 ahh your pregnant, is that why? oh well, dump him anyway and date me. ok were dating. now were not. get out.

 snowflake day! Forrest decided to invite all his known bastards to his home to give them gifts.
this kid came from his ex boss.. funny i dont even remember that night


 this o…

ive been afraid to check my royal family

since the delphy-pocalyps that deleted half my content. but i was bored today so i fired up that save game. at first, it crashed. i was afraid maybe it had become corrupted. but the second time it loaded fine, but some of my items ARE missing.

i will do what i can to replace whats gone with either the same stuff or just other stuff, but the castle for the most part is intact. i didnt really lose much :)

so i may be playing that family again sometime soon. since ive been binging on sims medieval, im in a castly mood, and tired of the restrictions sims medieval puts on you.

Forrest working his way thru town

Forrest got invited to a co-worker's party an immediately started hitting on the ladies present. single? doesnt matter. Forrest likes, Forrest gets


 altho he is still trying to lasso these 2 ladies. neither have succumbed to his advances as of yet.


 i dont remember whats going on here. i think he was turning this guy into a toad. was trying to steal a car, and this dork just wouldnt leave the parking lot


 this guy (who happens to be his nephew that he never met) decided to pick a fight with him. and won. Forrest was displeased


 and bound him to his voodoo doll..... wow Forrest really is a bastard lol

 Kandy is Forrest's new roomate. and WILL be his lover.. or perhaps even his wife. but first, he must fulfill his LTW of breaking 10 hearts. and so far its slow going


 well then, i guess we need to resrot to magical means. poof! love spell! he romanced, and dumped this poor girl all in one night. and then another one. and then a dry spell for a few days..


 went to make lunch and…

a small change

an idea came to me last night as i was falling asleep, and it seemed like a good one. i have added pages to the side panel of my blog, to make it easier to find certain things, like certain parts of legacy stories, since i just post whatever im playing at the time and there is no ryme or reason to the general blog itself lol.

so if there is a particular family you are a fan of, it will be easy now to find and read about them. it also helps keep things tidy for me, as i like to use these blog pages as a sort of family history. its very helpful to go back and see what happend :)

so my royal family of dragonvalley, and the ovevil family have their own links now. enjoy

a title of some sort

well i have no idea what Ellamynt is doing here.


 but now she is aging up! that generation sure went quick


 Tero went to the prom and got a romantic interest. unfortunately its Fiona from shrek


 i tried to break it off, but she left the date too fast.


 so ill just go into the bar and flash my fake ID around. yeah im TOTALLY 21 you guys


 met another girl from school, Ada. shes not too bad i guess


 finally got lady shrek to go out with me again, after like a week of calling, what she avoiding me on purpose cause she knew what i was gonna say?


 Tero sneaking out after being grounded for pranking the school. this kid is just bad news lol


 and since daddy yelled at him when he came home, Tero used a voodoo doll on him.


 dance, old man, DANCE! muahahahaha


 Tero's birthday!

 well damn who would have guessed he would be so hot? His official name is now Forrest


 with no particular aspirations, Forrest  is a heartbreaker, and in the criminal career. he is going to destroy this town >:…
