Hello! Welcome to my (that is, [personal profile] jayeless's) Sims journal on Dreamwidth. This space opened in May 2010 as a place to post updates for my then-new Sims 2 legacy, the Antikvas. After a few years where I didn't play any Sims games at all, as of 2017 it has branched out into hosting updates for my new Sims 4 legacy, The Coopers. If you are interested, my Sims 4 musings can also be found at my Tumblr side-blog, [tumblr.com profile] jayeless-sims.

In this sticky post, you can find links to as many updates as I can find links for, with the intention of providing a nice easy way for you to navigate this blog.

Good news! I reinstalled my game in a 64-bit virtual drive with a newer version of Wine (2.18 stable) and it all runs like a dream now. No more crashing and I can afford to play with higher graphics settings! This means that I’ve actually played ahead a little bit, trying to create a backlog of posts to give me some buffering NaNoWriMo. We’ll see how that goes. For now, enjoy!

Last time: Josh enjoyed the Serial Romantic life. India played with a lot of food and befriended her great-grandpa’s ghost. Billie and Arnold conceived another baby. Feeling abandoned by Arnold (who was at work), Billie became receptive to Josh’s advances… very receptive. We continue…

The Coopers 5.3

In which not a lot of time passes but Ella finds a beau and Josh gets at least three first kisses (+88) )

I’m having yet more problems with my game crashing intolerably often, I’m afraid :( I’m starting to think I might have to reinstall, because it’s literally at the point where I’m playing the same events three times over before I can get the save function to work instead of crash. GAH.

Last time: Billie gave birth to twin girls, Delta and India. Josh continued his Serial Romantic ways, including through the putting of moves on his sister-in-law Billie, and fathering a child (or two?) with his girlfriend Elsa Bjergsen. Ella became an Evil Young Adult. We continue…

The Coopers 5.2

A bumper update of romance galore (+101) )

Last time: Josh convinced Elsa Bjergsen to be his girlfriend. Billie and Arnold CONCEIVED A BABY, then got married. Julian’s ghost paid a visit, and had a romantic evening with an excessively caffeinated Claire. Elsa and Josh became young adults, and Ella become leader of the Teen Hangout Club. Finally, Josh developed his Serial Romantic habits at the nightclub. We continue…

The Coopers 5.1

Featuring toddlers and romance! (Separately, not together.) (+87) )

Yay for school holidays! I had time to finish playing this update this morning, as well as the start of the next (hint: generation five has been born 😉). Enjoy!

Last time: Julian died. Arnold was a colossal meanie-mo, but managed to convince Billie to be his girlfriend and then fiancée anyway. Josh tried to also get a girlfriend, but his family kept running interference. We continue…

The Coopers 4.7

Featuring a whole lotta romance (+92) )

Welcome back! This is actually as far as I’ve played – I've been battling with a stubborn illness and using what little creative energy I’ve had mostly on novel-writing. Nonetheless, enjoy, and hopefully 4.7 will follow soon!

Last time: Morgan raised donations for her charity. Britta and Morgan met the Fake Morgan Fyres. Arnold met a cute teenage girl named Billie and resisted his urge to be mean just enough to convince her to like him. Instead he targeted his younger siblings, especially Ella, for meanness. Then Ella became a teen!

The Coopers 4.6

Featuring romance and shenanigans (+86) )

Just throwing it out there that generation four has probably been the most fun generation for me to play (so far). Maybe it's the Parenthood features deepening their characters, but they interact well! Hope you enjoy.

Last time: school projects, bear phases, Claire became an elder, Ella became a child, Arnold and Josh became teens.

The Coopers 4.5

Sibling love. (+90) )

Hello again, and welcome back! I have a new Coopers update for you, featuring the gen. 4 children (and their relatives) as they journey on through life, lol. Enjoy!

Last time: Britta and Morgan conceived and had a third child, Ella. Josh became a child, Arnold became a nerd, Morgan became the world’s saddest protester. And now, we continue!

The Coopers 4.4

In which we see what the Parenthood GP has to offer (+81) )

Welcome back! Not only do I have this update for you, but I have like, half of an update 4.4. With any luck it should be able to come out on schedule. Enjoy!

Last time: my game crashed and crashed and crashed. Finally I moved the Coopers to a new house in a new save and things seem OK again. Arnold became a child, Josh became a toddler, Julian became an elder and Britta became a middle-aged adult. We continue…

The Coopers 4.3

Will there more babies?! Hint: yes. At least, one more. (+83) )

Hello again! I know it’s been a little longer between updates this time (not that much longer, just a little) – with school back in session I have less time to play. Hopefully I will be able to get 4.3 out on schedule, but I haven’t finished playing it yet, so we’ll see!

Last time: Britta and Morgan’s firstborn, Arnold, became an Inquisitive toddler and started to learn All The Things. tbh the update revolved around him mostly. Then Morgan gave birth to another boy, Josh!

The Cooper 4.2

More toddlers, yay! (+80) )

They’re back! I hope you enjoy. My game was crashing ALL the time as I played this segment of the legacy (and the next update is going to be even more disjointed because of it). I may have had a combination of factors – incompatible/broken CC, a corrupted save, too much DLC installed? idk but the thing that really seems to have fixed it for sure was NOT HAVING A MULTI-STOREY HOUSE. So, uh, yeah, enjoy this one while it lasts.

Last time: Britta and Morgan got married and conceived a child. The Coopers moved to a new house in Windenburg that crashes all the time for some reason. Finally, Britta and Morgan’s first child, a boy named Arnold, was born!

The Coopers 4.1

Featuring an adorable toddler (+77) )
