The Irresistible GilsCarbos, 2.3: Flight Rising (2/14)

Postby pucksummerdream » December 28th, 2015, 5:50 pm

Hey. I'm Bec, normally a Sims 2 blogger who's having a tumultuous and torrid affair with The Sims 3. From that affair comes, aptly, this illegitimate child of a legacy. I'm so sorry mom.

Anyways, this is The Irresistible GilsCarbos, a legacy founded by the face and regular moral capacity of The Sims 2's hottest single, Goopy GilsCarbo. Every heir has to had the Irresistible trait, as what Goopy would want, and everyone will be named after characters and people that I think are that special brand of irresistible. Let's see how long I can get into this while keeping people look like their gorgeous founder.

Prolouge:
0.1: How You Doin'

Gen 1: Goopy / Carmen
1.1: Play More Zeppelin
1.2: Winter Blunderland
1.3: Fashion, Baby
1.4: Perfectly Cooked

Gen 2: Gillian / Jenelle
2.0: Game Changer
2.1: Change of Pace
2.2.: Girls, Girls, Girls
2.3: Flight Rising :spin:

Omg, that first picture had me giggling!

Spoiler:
I love your sense of humour, and too many of the jokes in this chapter to mention! Goopy's tats, Carmen's obsession with recycling, pregnant zombies, well, everything!

Can't wait for your next update!

:D

Spoiler:
I loved the deer! (Also, I didn't know there was deer in TS3, I never played pets) All of the animal humour :lol:

Mayor Goopy! Breaking up with his boss!

I like Gillian, she's definitely a child of Goopy!

Hyde is so dramatic :lol: I love all the kids, they're all quite interesting!


Looking forward to more, as always :)

Hooray, a new Sims 3 legacy! Just caught up with your chapters, and here are some thoughts:
Spoiler:
Any legacy that features Goopy, a Judith Butler joke, and someone travelling to a stranger's house explicitly to play with dogs is amazing in my book. The kids are adorable, and I think Gillian will be a perfect heiress. I also really liked all of the animal humour - poor cranky deer, just constantly being accosted by legacy kids.
I'm looking forward to seeing more!

I was actually also surprised to see a deer...I'm sorta rediscovering this game as I play. And thank you! I like the kids too.

HA, I was worried the Judith butler would be too off kilter. Thank you so much for the feedback!

I'm basically bingeplaying, so new chapter already.

Spoiler:
Dirty snow kisses! Aww!

I love the paper hat :D She's going to be an awesome heir.

That murphy bed is desperate for a victim!

I love the swinging bachelor pad of a house :) Very GilsCarbo!

:lol: @ Goopy's diamond feminism! And his campaign video!

:eek: Jasmine is massive compared to little Aladdin!

Oscar's so chill when the folk are out of town!


You're making me want to reinstall TS3! Great update! :fish:

Yay for Goopy! I've just read the prologue, and I must say that I like the premise you've set up for future generations. Since there is too much funny to comment on, I'll just leave you for now with the following statements.
Spoiler:
Them tattoos though. Never change them xD
Is the ring bio-degradable as well? :lol:
Omg the initiation photos you're actually making them a thing *tears in eyes*

Reading the rest in one go, with simultaneous commentary because who needs sleep (it's past midnight).
Spoiler:
Goopy! What kind of a politician are you to cheat on your wife and not let the press know?
The kids are really cute x3 The artistic and eccentric traits make me think he's going to be really flamboyant, but we'll see.
And omp the puppy showtunes

"I HAVE A BROTHER?!" You adorable dimwit
Yay for Mayor Goopy, not that their living conditions will improve due to it :P
"When you turn 21, you can objectify all you want." LOL
Poor Hyde :( Come here cutiepie, I'll make you feel understood :candyheart:
Surprise puppy!
Wow, Gillian really takes after her father in looks!
HYDE YOU'RE BA - "Can we eat it." lol Belle what are you saying
Wow, that winter lasted way too long.

"Creepy people watching me" What, where? :shifty:
Insane, light-sleeping frugal. That's a heirship I'm looking forward to seeing.
I want to befriend that limodriver :starry:
Oh Oscar, stealing your pa's camera to apply for a reality show... why are all these kids so freaking lovely

Gillian's personality is just becoming better and better... and soon irresistible will be slapped on too. Jiminy jillickers.
I think Carmen will still echo about eco when she's become compost herself.
Bye Oscar ~ You'll be missed ~
" God, he is so, so close I can almost taste it." :smirk:
"You look like Ireland threw up on a person" Where do you get these descriptions from :rofl:
Insane frugal perfectionist x interesting face nerd Jenelle <3
Aw, that glitch at the end. Because EAxis just can't release a bugless game.
Looking forward to the next update!

Read all of it in one go, and this is an absolutely wonderful legacy!
Spoiler:
Seriously though, I love Goopy, just how you're portraying him alone is amazing. You've definitely done the romancer justice, even though I'd have expected him to fail more. Carmen is an absolute treasure and it sounds like she's a blast to play.

The kids! They're all definitely unique and I'm little sad that Oscar didn't grow into the ugly so he could stick around, but damn if he didn't do well for himself! Gillian and Jenelle are really cute together too!

Aw Oscar's out on his own, and having babies!

I'd forgotten how glitchy TS3 can be - those puppies are terrifying! I hope the crash didn't do too much damage :)

I love that you brought Goopy into the Sims 3! He was always one of my favorite characters in Sims 2. You did an excellent job of recreating him, and your legacy is a fun read!

Look at you, binge reading! I'm flattered.

Spoiler:
Goopy isn't smart enough to use an affair as poltical intrigue. Or maybe...is smart enough? And oh man, I wonder if I should have kept on with the dog showtunes.

Their living conditions improving implies I can actually build.
Ahh yeah, Hyde is a cutie patootie.
Gillian was what I thought they'd all look like.
WINTER WAS HELL. I'm thinking about turning it off.

The only response I have to this chapter is that the limo driver was so cool. I miss her.

Gillian was a surprise favorite for me!
Bye Oscar ~ You'll be missed ~
"God, he is so, so close I can almost taste it." was one of those lines that wouldn't have been as inappropriate if it wasn't Goopy.
I was really proud of the Ireland line, yeah.


Thank you for the long response, it made my day when I first read it.

You know, I thought he'd fail more too. He was surprisingly competetant as a founder.

Oscar, yes, he will be missed...:( I hope his spirit lives on.

The crash really only took out her growing up, luckily. You learn to save like a fiend with this game. I still can't actually tell if I like The Sims 3 or not.


Sam, you're officially the First Reader. I should give you a prize. Thanks for the reply!

I thought of playing it cool, but I gotta say, I geeked out super hard when I saw you replied. You were the first...no, wait...the SECOND legacy challenge I ever read when I was first playing The Sims 2! (The first was The Flamingo Legacy, which I can't find ANYWHERE...lost to time, I suppose.) Thanks for the nice words!

Here's the new update! I'm curious as to what you'll all think about...well, no spoilers, you'll see. :spin:

Somehow I managed to miss the update before this one!

Spoiler:
I found out about time babies from an ISBI, and I think it's an awesome little feature! I'm pretty sure babies in the future come out as elders? I think? Anyway, I love Louise. I definitely think she should be in the running for heiress, she's a descendent of Gillian afterall.

I loved Goopy turning his limo around to get home! :lol:

I can never keep track of who all the dogs are :oops: but they're all pretty cute!

I'm looking forward to seeing the baby, and whatever else the GilsCarbos have planned!

Goopy for President! I'm totally in. Love the term scenery porn, do you have that copyrighted? Could I steal it? LOL. I read Game Changer with Celebration playing the whole time. It seemed fitting but now that song is stuck in my head. And I love Goopy's Tattoos!

I just got my sims 2 game up and running again. The first townie I SimPE'd was Goopy. Shows you he really is one of my favorites! Loving your legacy because I am a Goopy girl.
