I played a couple of hours of the Mirage Legacy family over the weekend, mostly to refamiliarise myself with them post-bugfix. The household is currently full with 6 adults / young adults and two infants, and is about to get even busier as those infants age up to children (whose primary need appears to be homework, or maybe I’m just too focused on getting As…).
I keep thinking it would all be a lot easier if I just kicked out a few family members, and I certainly could. Ratscrew and Slapjack are cadet branches of the family and aren’t really ‘needed’ in terms of the legacy. But I can’t. I love them all. Ratscrew is the upright, fitness-focused Space Ranger hero type who quietly mourns his deceased partner, and Slapjack is the happy-go-lucky, 40-year-old-virgin painter who is everyone’s favourite brother or uncle.
That they both bring in a crapton of money is just icing on the cake (the household’s bills are in the thousands now; the house is huge, there’s a second house on the lot for the cadets, and there’s lots of expensive furniture everywhere).
Actually, the person I like least is the next head of the family, poor self-centered, insane, bro-tending Baccarat. I’m pretty sure my Sims feel the same way – even his parents, who love him because they must. His wife seems to be the only one who sees any redeeming features in him, and indeed she’s the only one he isn’t mean to the second I take my eye off him in conversations. If I’m not directing his interactions, it takes him about 3 seconds to offend pretty much anyone he’s talking to. If only he’d been a harmless eccentric kind of insane, instead of the deluded, violin-playing dictator kind…
Anyway, it seems there will be more Sims 4 Mirage Legacy playing in my future. But I swear, the next generation will be entitled little shits who live entirely off their family’s money and want the house all to themselves.
Because it’s not enough that people post pictures of their real selves everywhere… Now we can officially do it in game with the S.E.L.F.I.E toy.
This is the last one of my chars’ SELFIES you’ll ever see. I promise. (Maybe. My chars are more photogenic than I am.)
So patch 6.1 came out today and it looks like there’s some cool stuff in it. Which I haven’t explored yet, so you’re not going to read about it here. Except for the fact that aside from updating the Blood Elf models, human models seem to have benefitted from a bit of makeup. My pally is now sporting some rather fetching femme fatale eyeliner…* And the mining and run-speed potions for use in the garrison mine now stack!*
EDIT – Nope, definitely new eyeliner. My Warlock is looking even more pleased with herself than usual.
* It is entirely possible this has been around for months and I only just noticed.
The best guildies are the ones who point out the stuff you absolutely have to know. Like the fact that there’s a, er… wearable bird in the trees of the level 3 garrison.
The rest is just gravy. Like this silly tree-chopping contraption. Large timber shall be mine, all mine – which is just as well, because I’m out of garrison resources. And money.
I couldn’t wait to make the Elekk Plushie battle pet, and as soon as I had 50 hexcloth I immediately
wasted used them on that. And he’s cute… until you summon him. Then he’s just creepy.
He doesn’t move, see, and that’s the problem. He just sort of stands there, staring at you with those pink button eyes. And then you move, and he stays where he was, and you forget all about him… until you stop again somewhere and suddenly he’s there, right behind you, staring at you with those pink button eyes.
It ain’t natural, I tells ya.
