Henning and Ashely are now the proud parents of Lavrans jr and Nora. They are kids working hard on their skills and homework.

Nola has finished her fab wealthy aspiration and is also full in her painter career, time to retire perhaps.

She also got to 7 in the gardening skill. I put her to spice a grape onto the apple tree and this little tree was the result. Don't you pode as my grandfather would say, on a fully grown tree and let it grow grapes on the apple tree for all eternaty or what?

I just stumbled on something important reading through Carls guide.

Quote :
Waiting is good as plants will provide more harvestables the longer you wait and harvesting immediately will yield fewer fruit, while resetting the timer, causing it to take longer for them to produce fruit again

Another thing I would like to know is if I can upload this lot with it's progress one's I'm finished. Anyone knows?

I don't know about the upload ...but don't see why you can't ... thumbs up

Great progress .... applause

Thanks for the "harvesting" tip ... I haven't done much gardening yet, but looks like I'm heading in that direction with my "stuck at work" sim having just quit his job! giggle

Nola died as well as who? I don’t even remember. Could it have been Steve? I have then two spots ready, and who to give those to?

skipstad Legacy, The Rosebud Challenge by Volvenom, on Flickr

Ashely is about to get old and Lillian is the next in line. She’s younger and she belongs to a different part of the family than Henning does. He is a descendant of Lisa the daughter of my starting couple, while Lillian is a descendant of Lavrans, her brother.

skipstad Legacy, The Rosebud Challenge by Volvenom, on Flickr

The selected lucky one to have kids is Lillian. I actually tried something different and made her a partner instead.

I started the save, since just saving seems to have some problems I tend to make new saves quite often. As I said I opened the save, but then I realized I had to make a new character for the save from the main manu. After clicking ok to post him to the gallery as well I placed him in a house he could afford. Then I went back to manage world and clicked on the Skipstad house.

Above Lillian goes to see him at his house, she had to go a couple of times.

skipstad Legacy, The Rosebud Challenge by Volvenom, on Flickr

She knocks on his door and the hole house opens up. There my creation sits by his table. She just brings him to the home lot and he never leaves Smile

Trond Nilsen by Volvenom, on Flickr

I made him Perfectionist and Business Savvy same as Lillian and then I gave him loves outdoors and self assured as well, and he’s aspiring to be fabulously wealthy of cause, what else? That should give them something in common. I have to remember to have no spacing between the search words next time.

skipstad Legacy, The Rosebud Challenge by Volvenom, on Flickr

Between the two times she had to call on his door, she found the Grim Reaper watering some plants in a park or something.

skipstad Legacy, The Rosebud Challenge by Volvenom, on Flickr

They seem to work well together. I placed him in the geek career.

skipstad Legacy, The Rosebud Challenge by Volvenom, on Flickr

They have a little daughter and I call her Sofia.

I don’t know if you understand my numbering below. 1.2 Lisa is the daughter of the starting couple, then she has the daughter Hanna, she’s number 1.2.1. You see I just add a number behind the two others. The first number 1 will always be the same as it’s for my starting couple. The 2 is because I gave her the number two. I really mixed this up. She was born before Lavrans, but nevermind that. In the next generation Lisa has only 1 daughter, while Lavrans has 3 kids. As you can see Nola being Lavrans third kid has the number 1.1.3.

The Generation Game:

Generation 1: Henriette and Henning both sr.

1.2 Lisa
1.1 Lavrans

Generation 2:

1.1 Lavrans, marries Kayla
1.1.1 Leanna
1.1.2 Tina
1.1.3 Nola
1.2 Lisa, partners Chi
1.2.1 Hanna

Generation 3:

1.2.1 Hanna, partners Reese
1.2.1.1 Henriette jr
1.2.1.2 Henning jr
1.1.3 Nola, partners Steve
1.1.3.1  Lillian

Generation 4:

1.2.1.2 Henning jr, partners Ashely
1.2.1.2.1 Lavrans jr
1.2.1.2.2 Nora
1.1.3.1 Lillian partners Trond Nilsen

Generation 5:

1.2.1.2.1 Lavrans
1.2.1.2.2 Nora
1.1.3.1.1 Sofia

The Achivement:

I have now only 200k left to do.

Achievement_10 by Volvenom, on Flickr

At the moment Ashely needs 5 friends to move on. I selected the wrong branch for her obviously. I don’t have patience with this friends thing, even though she probably have 5 of them in the house she can talk to. I’m thinking about kicking her out. She came from outside as you may remember, so I don’t think I’ll lose that much progress if I do. My bills are at 3500 at the moment, as long as I can pay those I should be fine. If I do that I could use the free space for another baby by Lillian and Trond.

Lets start at the bottom now.

Sofia is just a tiny little baby, born yesterday or something.

Nora is a teen and has 7 days to be young adult. She’s a B grade student and I decided to not give these two any parttime jobs. I want them to focus on earning me money when they grow up instead. i’m not sure if getting to A grade student makes them more diligent as adults, but that’s why I do this I guess:)

Lavrans has 4 days to level up to young adult. He’s also a B grade student, he should level up next time he enters school I hope.

Trond Nilsen is the next one, he has 9 days to age up to adult. He has entered level 3 in the geek career. He has level 4 gardening and level 3 programming. He’s on the 25000 reserve level in his fab wealthy aspiration and just needs to get 2 more job promotions to level up. That means he’s already way ahead on the finance part of it.

Lillian has 1 day to age up to adult. She’s in the geek career as well, level 5 at the moment. I’m a bit slow with her. I set her to make paintings, but that’s not what she can earn money on given her career. She has the experience to level as geek, but needs to make 2 more plugins. That should be fairly easy.

Henning has entered the esports gamer part of the geek career. I’m checking out online gaming with him. Last time he had 1100 followers on some community. He earns rubbish on those communities though, like 43 last time. That’s not his job, he still has 121 pr hour doing his job. His target now is a place in a video game tournament. Does that mean I need to have a TV now suddenly? As with Ashely I wonder if this is the wrong branch for me. I would much rather have them gaining skills by playing videogame than watching tele. He has 5 days to his old days.

Henriette has earned the 75k needed for the fab wealthy aspiration already, now she just need to get from 7 in her career earning 71 pr hour, to 8 to level in her aspiration. I chose the outgoing part of the painting career for her as well, probably another not so beneficial job with this end achivement goal I have. The only thing she’s missing though is some experience, probably because I clicked wrong on the chance cards for her.

Ashely is an elderly woman now and earns terribly 52 pr hour as head caterer at level 6 in her career. She hasn’t earned much on her 75k target for the fab wealthy aspiration either.

Ashely has level 6 in programming, but I don’t think she has much royalties I will miss either. If I get rid of her I have soon two babies, two teens, 1 inmarried with less skills Trond, and 3 more adults to earn the cash and tend the garden. That’s four of each, the teens will age up soon and suddenly I have like 6 adults earning lots of cash.

Whew! You have been busy! Don't forget you can change Aspirations and not lose progress. I got stuck a couple of times not able to move forward to the next level. Changing Aspirations is free and another one could earn more Satisfaction points.
Bravo
Bravo on your progress!

Yes, but it's the jobs I get stuck in. Nola fulfilled her aspiration, but she was close to dead anyway.

I just feel disappointed if I can't get the people I raised to adulthood succeed in their careers, it's almost like I failed or something Sad giggle

WOW .... I'm thoroughly confused ... It seems to work for you though, and that's what counts Big Grin I'm having trouble keeping up with the names of my own generations Laughing, if I added #'s, well ... pale Anyway ... congratulations on your progress ... and while I did make it to level 10 of the writers career, my sim died as soon as she got home from work the very next day Crying or Very sad .... it really takes along time to level them up when they get close to 10 Mad

My family thinks it's fun to keep track of previous generations like Snowshow Thompson in the US, I've taken the numbers from other books like that. It's what they do apparently, and some sort of numbering on generations is probably needed anyway. In my country it's the big thing if you can trace you family back to Harald hårfagre or "Harald with all the hair" in English Laughing That was in the 800 something, of cause along the way you have guess a bit ROFL

Now it's time for CoffeeSip and breakfast before Hard Hat Zone

Here is my last update.

Yes I finished this challenge doing 200k in one hole day Smile I ended the challenge with only 6 as the two oldies Henning jr and Henriette died … I think those where the one’s. At least the generation list below is good lol. I needed 5 generations to finish.

skipstad Legacy, The Rosebud Challenge by Volvenom, on Flickr

In the end I had Lillian, Trond, Lavrans jr, Nora, Sofia and Alexander. Lillian is now old and has lived 76 days. The previous generation died before reaching the end of the ruler for old age, so I guess that means I can’t really be sure when they will pass. Trond still has 3 days days left before old age, Lavrans has just turned old, Nora has 1 day to adulthood, Sofia has 1 day to young adult and Alexander has 7 days before young adult.

Earlier I got rid of Ashely so I could get Alexander instead, but as you can see he’s not even old enough to earn any money yet Smile If I’m going to continue with this family I have to get a partner for one of the young one’s, possibly Sofia.

I just deleted Ashely by selecting manage household from manage world view and then change them all in CAS, I could just delete Ashely from there. Last time I kicked someone out I used a move out function I think for one of the failed partners for generation 2 or something. Deleteing characters in this game isn’t a problem as even the game itself does that from time to time. Some of my spouses earlier was lost that way.

skipstad Legacy, The Rosebud Challenge by Volvenom, on Flickr

Here is Sofia aging up to kid. I wonder where she got her black hair from.



The Generation Game:

Generation 1: Henriette and Henning both sr.

1.2 Lisa
1.1 Lavrans

Generation 2:

1.1 Lavrans, marries Kayla
1.1.1 Leanna
1.1.2 Tina
1.1.3 Nola
1.2 Lisa, partners Chi
1.2.1 Hanna

Generation 3:

1.2.1 Hanna, partners Reese
1.2.1.1 Henriette jr
1.2.1.2 Henning jr
1.1.3 Nola, partners Steve
1.1.3.1  Lillian

Generation 4:

1.2.1.2 Henning jr, partners Ashely
1.2.1.2.1 Lavrans jr
1.2.1.2.2 Nora
1.1.3.1 Lillian partners Trond Nilsen

Generation 5:

1.2.1.2.1 Lavrans
1.2.1.2.2 Nora
1.1.3.1.1 Sofia
1.1.3.1.2 Alexander

Below is the family as I left them for you. They stay at home all day so will mostly be walking around in pyjamas or if they walk through the garden, in everyday cloths. If they upload as is, they will have some very high developed skills, please enjoy:)

skipstad Legacy, The Rosebud Challenge by Volvenom, on Flickr

I have uploaded the family under my ID: Volvenom. On the same ID I have uploaded the bare house as it was when I finished, be prepared for work right away Wink I've also used the rosebud hashtag.
