Indefinite Hiatus

I know it's probably pretty obvious at this point, but my interest in the UGG Legacy has waned.  I'm not going to delete it because I always get very attached to my sim families - even the hideous ones, LOL.  But I think they have probably gotten about as ugly as they can without cheating.  I am probably finished with them.

Another factor in my decision to quit is that I don't enjoy playing Legacy style nearly as much as a neighborhood in rotation - like a Prosperity style challenge.  I tend to get really bored with Legacies.  I have only finished one - an Apocalypse challenge that I finished but never blogged.

But I may one day come back and play this one again and blog it, as unlikely as it seems to me now.  I just hate that I left this challenge dormant for so long with no explanation.  So now I have a feeling of closure with this one.  Thank you for reading.

Ch. 14: Ugly Business

My apologies for taking almost 3 months to update. It doesn't seem like it's been that long.

Ch. 13: Learnin' Stuff

It's time for another update of my UGG Legacy.  As you may know, Hanley won the heir poll.

Ch. 12: UnPleasantview


According to the poll I have here and on LiveJournal, it looks like Hanley is the clear winner unless a lot of people come vote for Iago in the next few hours.  Adding the 2 polls together, Hanley had 18 votes, and Iago had 4 votes so far.  I won't move Hanley home until the results are official, though.  Thank you to everyone who voted! :D


So, welcome back to UnPleasantview.  Most of the pictures in this update were taken and edited about 4 years ago, although I did not write about them back then (darn!), and I don't have any idea if they're even in the correct order.  So I will do my best to just to remember the basics and get us caught up to where I can play again.  BTW, this update is cross-posted to my LiveJournal.

Ch. 11: Ugly Affliction

Sometimes I surprise myself, like when I realized last night that I had already written the next chapter of the story years ago, but then didn't post it when I thought my neighborhood was gone. So, yay! I think it's pretty good for something I wrote about 4 years ago. I made some choices (killed off some sims, LOL) back then that I might not have chosen now to do now.  But, in my defense, they are townies we see all the time in everyone's game, so they're always alive somewhere. Oh, and I renamed the town UnPleasantview now, which seems much more descriptive.  Since this is still old stuff, the heir poll is still in effect until Valentine's Day, so please vote if you want to have your say for the future of the UGG Legacy.

And so this is where the story picks up again:

UGG Legacy 4th Generation Heir

OK, I know I have a lot of nerve waiting over 4 years to continue my UGG Legacy (Uglacy).  But, I have reinstalled my game, and found that the neighborhood is surprisingly still intact (I really thought that I overwrote the data), and that I can indeed play this once more!  It's almost like a Phoenix rising from the ashes - but way uglier

What really helps is that AnyGameStarter will finally, finally work for me, opening up a whole new world of possibilities - being able to play with different amounts of cc without having to try to move a ginormous downloads folder to do it.  With an Uglacy, I feel that the less cc I use the better, as it seem to really help uglify everyone and everything.  It's too bad I was afraid and waited over 4 years to try reinstalling, but now - onward!

I have played beyond what is currently posted, but believe me when I tell you that Hanley and Iago are the clearly the ugliest sims I was able to get from Generation 4.   There is little point in putting all the possible heirs to a vote, since according to my sons and husband, these two are decidedly the ugliest.

Hanley Thayer

Hanley is the son of Garridan Thayer and Marisa Bendett.

Iago Thayer

Iago is the son of Fulton Thayer and Sandy Bruty.

There is a 3 to 1 winner in my house so far, but I'd like to do a poll here, which is up in the left top sidebar.  I'll also be putting this on LiveJournal now that I have one.  Please vote and let me know which of these will be the heir so I can finally move him home from college.  In the future, I will try not to wait so long to choose an heir. ;)

Ch. 10: Lean, Mean and Green

Just to let you know, there will soon be a poll for the heir of Generation 4 -- as soon as my blogging has caught up to that part of the story, that is. Bear with me a little longer if you can. Soon you can help put the madness to an end by helping me decide who is the ugliest - a spawn of Fulton or a spawn of Garridan.

Back to our story: Joe Carr is here to introduce Chapter 10.

Uh, Joe?

"Oh, um... what?"

Just kidding, Joe. Go back to your smustling attempt. After all, it is costing you $27 an hour. Make the most of that, LOL.

Sims are so gullible.

Ch. 9 The Heirship Is Up in the Air

I apologize for the lack of updates. My unreliable internet connection has made blogging very difficult. I finally got a modem upgrade a few days ago, and so far things are much better.

Now back to the ugliness if you dare look...

Winter is a time of fertility... at least it is here at the Thayer house. Both Marisa and Sandy are expecting. I could never pick an heir for Generation 3 between Fulton and Garridan. They were just so flipping ugly -- each in his own special way. So I decided I will pick the ugliest heir of the 4th Generation. Fulton and Garridan will share the title of heir until such a time as I have decided on the ugliest of their children.

"Booga, Booga!" Meadow must be trying to send Fulton a message to eat more fruit.

Somehow I doubt regularity is a problem for Fulton at the moment.

Ch. 8: Obfuscate

I really like Blair, but I decided to have him move in with Beverley and Phoenix to make room for the heir's spouse and future children. Sorry, Blair.

So do you think I decided yet? Who do you think the heir will be?

Now would be a good time to show you Fulton and Garridan's Lifetime Wants. At least they both have reasonable goals. This will give them a much better chance of dying of old age. ;)

Not that it really matters, but Rose had a want to get a gold badge in robotics, and she fulfilled it.

Ch. 7 Face It, They're Ugly

Have I mentioned how much I love the SentryBot? Gosh, I love it! I bought several tempting gnomes just so I could watch the constant zapping.

Fulton reached his teens, and I must say I am impressed, or at least I was impressed until he did this to me:

Ch. 6: Woohoo, A Vacation!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I really like the astronaut uniform, although I only got to see it for one day this time. Ackerley got promoted to General on his second day in the military. To celebrate, I've decided to have the family go on a vacation.

Ahh, who am I kidding? I want to let Meadow and Russ have a little more time together before they die.

The twins finished their homework right after school so they wouldn't have to worry about it when they got home from vacation. Now they're making up for their loss of fun. Wow, look at those faces! I am loving these two. I have a feeling it will be very hard to choose an heir this generation.
