The Jenkins Uglacy: Prelude to an Update

Hi guys!  So I finally got my Jenkins save file up and running (PHEW, what a relief!), so I’ll be working on an update soon.  In the mean time, I figured a refresher course on the current stars of our story would be in order, given that it’s been like a year and a half since I updated.

This vaguely unpleasant-looking gentleman is Yash Jenkins.  In spite of his grey hair, caused by a Generations-related glitch and not fixed by me because of reasons, he is only an Adult.  He loves the outdoors, is a vegetarian and a vehicle enthusiast, and he’s perceptive and easily impressed.  He’s currently a Caper Crusader, which is level 4 of the Investigator career.

Update from the Author

Hey guys!  (Those of you that are still with me, that is.)

I haven’t forgotten about the Jenkins family!  I’ve just finished installing all the Sims expansions, and I have to figure out if/where I actually have a copy of my Jenkins saves.  I’m a little afraid that when I look I won’t be able to find them, so I’ve been putting it off.  I also wanted to get used to the new expansions before I jump into the middle of a work-in-progress, which is the impetus for my starting a new legacy.

The new legacy is very different than the Jenkins Uglacy in terms of my writing style.  I hope you like it.  If not, no hard feelings, and don’t feel obligated to read it or anything.

Love you guys!

oops

 

Hi guys! Yeah, I know, I’m officially an asshole, since it’s been about 5 months since I last updated this legacy.

Never fear! I haven’t forgotten about my lovely Jenkinses. This month I’m doing NaNoWriMo, so I’m pretty busy, but I’m going to try to get a new chapter in this legacy out by the end of November, and then another in early December. That’s my plan, anyway.

I also have a bunch of legacies that I was reading that I need to catch up on! So that’s also on my To Do list.

I missed you guys!

PS, I’m also planning my next legacy, to be started after this one is finished, and probably founded by whoever I end up with at the end of this uglacy. I imagine it’ll end up being a prettacy. So what I need from you guys is a list of all your favourite TV characters! READY GO.

Generations & an Update on My Issues

So I got Generations the day it came out. Yay me. Unfortunately, I still had all my issues from my last post. But, being silly, I installed Generations anyway.

It seemed to fix the issues I had. Of course, it’s presented its own set of issues as well. Namely, it’s corrupted my save files. And because I’m a total goddamn moron, I didn’t have backups. So I have to load the games (I’m using plural because I have The Jenkins Uglacy, a family man challenge that I’m doing here, and another legacy I was waiting to start until after Generations came out).  Then I have to use Porter to grab everybody and plop them into a new town.  Which, from my experience moving to Twinbrook, I think I can safely assume is going to be a giant fucking pain in my ass.

So for the moment, I’m actively avoiding that.  But as soon as my new ADHD meds kick in, I’ll be all over that shit.

So, in the meantime, here’s Generations picspam from a new game I started:

Argh

I broke my game.

I don’t know how I did it, but I’m working on fixing it.

Essentially what happened is this:

  • First, my custom hair started not showing up, even after I deleted my cache files, which usually fixes the issue.
  • So I updated all my Twallan mods.  It didn’t fix anything.
  • Then I tried deleting some of my Twallan mods.  The game consequently started bouncing in load up.
  • Realizing my mistake, I put the mods back in and then went into the hairless game, paused it, clicked Reset Everything, and then saved and exited.
  • Then I deleted those mods and now it’s STILL BOUNCING ON LOAD UP WTF.

I’m working on it, I swear.  I just find it difficult and frustrating since the game takes so long to load up anyway.  RUDE.

PS, My mom keeps waking me up at ungodly hours.  I don’t know why.  I AM A GROWN WOMAN.  LET ME SLEEP ALL DAY IF I WANT TO.  I’M GOING TO NEED YOU TO FUCK OFF NOW, MOM.

I’m going to go wipe my runny nose on her pillow now.
