The Rutledge Legacy / 1.3 + heir poll!  
Hello everyone! I'm so sorry I haven't posted an update in so long. I sort of went on a sims hiatus for a bit there. I apologize. I am back in action now! This update is probably the longest yet. I hope you all enjoy! If you need refreshing on what's happened, check out this post

Gretchen and Zev are still as adorable as ever together. 

The only time my sims get action is when they're autonomously doing it.

 The house was getting a bit too crowded. Time for college. Goodbye, Buena! Fun fact: she is the only kid that didn't get a scholarship. 

I then proceeded to take a million pictures of her walking out of the house and into the taxi. I'm getting emotional just thinking about it. 

Zev ran all the way around the house trying to say goodbye to her, but apparently the wall was blocking her way. She gave him this crazy look and kept walking. It was hilarious.

"My dad is goddamn bananas."

I like to take pictures of taxis.

Zev grew up outside, alone, and in the red. I felt like such a bad simmer at this point. I'll make it up to you, Zev!

Family bonding time! I made an effort to take more photos of the family interacting. 

This... is a bit awkward.

And since the flu is still going around the house from the horrible cockroaches, Campbell had the craziest coughing fit ever and I took pictures of every second. I felt sort of bad but it was just too hilarious not to get.

This one is my personal favorite.

Two spams in a row! This one is an Aeon homework spam. I take way too many pictures of Aeon. I'm not trying to show favoritism! I don't know why I do that. 

Things I didn't know sims could get: hand cramps. 

Soccer time!



Campbell finally grew up! 

Yes! I said I'd make it up to you, Zev! 

Now that he's a platinum elder, I'm just going to let him do whatever he wants. He deserves it.

He also has a sweet ride to work.

You will be joining this family. Eventually. Soon

It's time for the remaining teens to go off to college! 

Goodbye Aeon and Campbell! Now we're just waiting for the twins to grow up.

Dirk and Duff get loads of attention now that their three older siblings have left.

I also feel like a horrible simmer when my sims cry. They do it often, though, because I sort of suck.

Hello, Gretchen! Still gorgeous. Still rocking that nose.

He gets a pension check of 1k a day. Pretty great, I think!

The house is super boring without all the craziness of babies and teens. 

Zev is now one of those retired platinum elders that spend their entire day painting. It's crazy how much money one elder can make from painting constantly. 

More soccer pictures? More soccer pictures.

This is my favorite picture ever.

I've never really played with Freetime before, so Zev is the first sim I've ever had who can get into the zone. 

Finally, birthday time! It's time for the last kids of this generation to grow up. 

Hello, Dirk! 

And hello, Duff! The second generation is now all grown up. This means... heir poll time! 

The Heir Poll

Just a note before we start: The first three children are very alike. Buena and Aeon have the same exact traits. They're basically clones of each other. I didn't know about rolling the pacifier when I first started. I rolled for each of their sexual orientations/aspirations.

The poll will be open for at least a week. I leave for Florida tomorrow so I won't be able to check until I come back. I hope you all enjoyed this chapter. Have a great week!

Who should be the heir  for this generation? 

Buena Rutledge
Aeon Rutledge
Campbell Rutledge
Dirk Rutledge
Duff Rutlege

Such pretty pictures! You really rocked that red sky, it looks gorgeous. I voted for Dirk because he was my favorite of the kids growing up. Such a cutie with that mohawk and those ears!

Thank you so much! I've been fiddling with my photoshop action, and I think I've finally found the right settings. That sky is my favorite! I'm thinking about just keeping it always, instead of having it change every season. Dirk is one of my favorites too, I must admit. He's catching up to Duff in the poll! I'm so surprised Duff has this many votes. But I love all of the kids, so whoever wins is fine with me. Thank you for the comment. :)

Thanks for the add ♥ I love your username! Your game is beautiful and your sims are adorable! I totally voted for Duff :-) Such a cutie!

Thank you so much for the compliments! <3 Your game is also beautiful. I must admit I'm very jealous of your interior decorating skills. Duff looks like she's going to win, which I have no problem with. She is quite adorable. :D

Thank you! I like Dirk a lot, too! I hope we'll see more of him, even though it looks like he wont be heir ;-) I love how that skin looks in your game, by the way! ♥

I was actually thinking of putting them up for download, if anyone was interested! *__* I am definitely going to play the losers of the heir poll. They're each so interesting, haha. Thanks! I am SO sick of werewolves right now, lol. I have definitely played them too much. I'm thinking of starting a BaCC, so yay normal skinned sims! x]
