Petal's Flower Legacy - Updated Feb 2024

Post by ciyrose »

Hello and here we are at the second challenge in the achievement insanity project. This, however, is going to be all about the Flower Legacy, and then eventually the Secret Garden legacy challenges. I found this one just hunting around for various styles and types of legacies and it seems like a fun challenge. So we are giving it a shot. Right now there isn't much here yet, just the main introduction and home page, but I hope to be back soon with a full update.

Rosa Petal sounds like a wonderful Sim to get to know and follow her story.

RIGHT??? Crazy trolly game. So far so good on the pause, so I think I'll be in good shape. I also like Rosa and Lara, they are super cute together.
I hadn't heard of it either, but I thought it sounded like a lot of fun, and trying things together I might not have otherwise.

There is a lot to do for sure. The teens and YA/Adults are very similar looking for sure, but there are slight differences. :)
Thanks for reading!

We also have another update out and an heir poll for the family as well! Check out Season 4!

Re: Petal's Flower Legacy - Updated Apr 2023

I am really glad I found this story. Not only am I feeling really invested in the family but it was a flower themed legacy I hadn’t heard of before. I am combining all of the flower/plant legacies into one for my 100 generation legacy. I had heard of Secret Garden but not the Flower Challenge so was able to add that one to my list.
Spoiler:
Fall – Petal is a really pretty founder and the starter house is really cute. Gotta love Sims logic – why lay on the soft grass when you can cloud gaze on the train tracks. The music loving NAP is one of the better ones. Lara and Rosa are so cute together. Dine out always seems to be hit or miss for me. I have had a few sims get their food right away and have a great meal. Others never get their food and spend hours waiting. I am glad Rosa and Lara still had a great date. Oh no not the wear bags NAP for another wedding. I really enjoy Lara’s relationship with his extended family. I am glad Lara was able to put out the fire and Rosa didn’t die.

Winter – Girasol is so cute. I don’t use that hair very often but it looks so good on her. It is clear she is a daddy’s girl and their snowpals turned out really fun. I also love that she used her charmer trait to get to know her gramdma and aunts. Lara’s family is such a great addition to the story. Looks like Lara is doing well at University. Finding time for papers, projects, and homework while raising a family can’t be easy. Solros is also a cutie. I like how one took after mom and the other dad with their hair color. I wonder who baby three will take after? Social Butterfly aspiration is usually my least favorite and the one that takes me the longest to complete.

Spring – I have also noticed in my rotations relationships going down between rounds. A few have even been culled completely. I am glad Rosa was able to get her relationship with Lara’s family back up. Poor Lara had a very scary and dangerous visit to the jungle. I am glad he was able to overcome being poisoned. That is fun that you choose journalism for Rosa. I haven’t played that particular branch very often so looking forward to seeing how Rosa does. Great job on Girasol completing the social butterfly aspiration. Yay! Baby number three is on the way! WOW! Girasol is a breathtaking teenager. I love her glasses and nose ring. Aster is such a cute name for the final baby.

Summer – The mother daughter moment at the beginning of the chapter was so cute. I can totally see a mom coming into her daughter’s room after prom to ask for all the details. Oh no, poor Rosa was struck by lightning. Aster is an adorable infant and the sentiment with his mom was adorable. I don’t think I have seen that one yet. I love how many of the playable teens are at high school. I hope I have the same experience when I get to that point. I am so glad that Lara got the adventurer midlife crisis and not the romance one. I just can’t imagine him ever wanting to cheat on Rosa. One thing you could try with Lara’s family to keep the relationships is try making a family club with Get to Work. Not sure if it will work but might be worth a try. Solros is a handsome teen and Aster is a cute toddler. I don’t think I have had the aggressive quirk yet so will be interested to see how that goes. The family reunion looked like it was a lot of fun. Not sure if you play with mods but there is one that makes prom longer. I find it makes prom a lot more fun as you can actually do things. Lara and Rosa having a pillow fight might be my favorite moment so far – they are an amazing couple. Love them! I see the poll is closed but my vote was going to be for Solros only because he has black hair and I think it is nice to mix up the genetics.

Awww, I'm glad you like the family and that it was new to you. I knew you were combing them, for some reason I thought you had this one!
Spoiler:
I also love Girasol, and Rosa and Lara. They are just so sweet! OMG, Lara's trips to the jungle were too much, it was so funny, but also scary while playing it. Everything that seemed to, went wrong. I ADORE Girasol as a teen. I think the nose ring suited her so well!! She really takes after her mom. Hint about teens in high school, give them lockers. That seems to make them more likely to show up when not playable! I do know about the mod to make prom longer, while I'm not actively avoiding mods, outside of MCCC I am trying to keep them very minor (just mostly buidling mods) for this save. I will take your vote into account. I expected to be back to this family by now but RL has kind of been kicking my butt. Soon though!
Thanks for all the lovely comments and glad you enjoyed it!! It was fun for me to go back down memory lane a bit with them too, I do love this family.

Another great update!
Spoiler:
Fall - Week 1 -- Yay! I am so glad to see Solros won the heir vote even if he doesn't look too happy about it - LOL! I like the change you made in having the next rotation start at 5:30 PM rather than AM. It is nice when you load the game and everyone can continue with their activities rather than going back to bed. I am thinking about making that change in my game as well. It is so cute that Girasol and her grandma Maribel got the supportive family dynamic. It seems really fitting too for a grandparent to be supportive of her grandchild. I love the the extended family you have with this family. I am really enjoying Rosa in the journalism career. I usually go with the author branch of the writer career so it is fun to learn more about the journalism career. That is a great idea to just upload the version of the community lot you want for the default rather than wasting time waiting for the vote. On no, poor Girasol and Aster have a difficult family dynamic. Like you said maybe it is the loud music. Hopefully they can be close again when they are older. I do like that you are getting different family dynamics. I seem to always get Jokester. Once and awhile I will get strict but that one usually seems to come up more with parents and toddlers when potty training. Great job Rosa on completing the aspiration - she and Lara are so cute together. Great job Girasol for graduating with honors. Solros jogging with cake is too funny and such a "sim" think to do. Maybe I should start jogging with cake - would that make me enjoy jogging more?

Spoiler:
Yeah, the change in rotation is all about surviving uni with sims. lol I loved all the different dynamics this time around. I also usually go with author, so it's been fun to learn. Haha, yes, maybe if I jog with cake I would jog more myself. :)
There is a new update ready for the Petal's. We are finally finishing up Fall and you can find Week 2 at the link!

Another great update. I really enjoy this family.
Spoiler:
It was nice to see your sims around the table chatting and no one had their phone out. Sims never changing out of their outerwear and/or pajamas does get old. I spend A LOT of time in CAS on the perfect outfits for my sims and then they either stay in their pajamas all day or change into their outerwear and never change back. I know I have said this before but I just love the relationship with the extended family. Grandpa coming over to make food for the family, do some cleaning and then chat with his grandsons was such a fun moment. I wish the high school and university diplomas went into the personal inventory since the household inventory. It would make sense for a sim that is not the heir to be able to take their high school diploma with them when they move out of the house. I rarely let my sims do pranks or be mischievous either (unless I have a sim that needs to complete that aspiration) so it was fun to see you letting Solros be a little mischievous with the pencil prank. I can remember kids doing that when I was in school. Awww, having the family volunteer at a soup kitchen on Harvestvest is such a cute idea. OH NO!! That fire looked bad. I am glad no one was hurt/killed. I totally forgot about the movie theater in San Sequoia. I am glad Solros won prom royalty but that is too bad about his birthday. Great job on the graduating with honors though. That was nice of Solros to help his brother learn how to ride his bike. I am looking forward to seeing Solros as a dad. I think he is going to be great.

Yeah, the outerwear/pj stuff gets old. I change it sometimes myself, but it's still annoying. I have had a lot of fun building up the extended family relationships here, so I'm glad you are enjoying them. I love having extended family around. The fact the diplomas go into family inventory makes NO SENSE to me! The fire was kind of crazy. It took me forever to get it fully out so the family could leave. I also look forward to getting a full start on Solors' generation, I think he's going to be fun!
Thanks as always for reading, and I always enjoy your comments!
