The Kingston Legacy

INDEFINITE HIATUS

Welcome to The Kingston Legacy! This legacy is my first one and I’m proud to say it is still going strong; I am currently at Generation 3, with Cherry Kingston. Check out the latest instalment in her story, chapter 3.9: storm. My aim for this generation is to make it realistic with good pictures and writing. I’m always open to hearing new thoughts!

The Kingston Legacy begins way less than perfect. The story and the screenshots and the writing embarrass me a little. The founder is Fern, a runaway from the shadowed town of Moonlight Falls. She is also a less than perfect Sim, with traits of Snob, Couch Potato, Hopeless Romantic, Bookworm and Hates the Outdoors. To top it all off, she is homeless as well!

!WARNING!

I repeat: Generation One is a potato compared to the current gen. Please remember this as you read. I don’t mind if you skip it, but you would miss loads of important backstory.

As I have said, right now I am writing the story of Cherry Kingston, Generation Three. The themes of her generation are far more mature than the other two, therefore I have rated it R-16. You can read my warnings here. In my opinion, the writing and picture quality is much better than Generations 1 & 2, so please check the first chapter out if you just can’t digest my silly past writing. However, the current story is definitely not perfect as I am still quite a young writer, so I will appreciate criticism as long as it is constructive.

I imagine you would want or not want to check out the very first chapter by now, so…

  1. Mate, I feel so unimaginative. Remember my Starlingrose Legacy?
    lol that was so terrible. At least Lia isn’t a complete parallel!
    Oh, and Fern, you look so different!
    Your legacy is cool. Hope no one dies and makes it sad. Just joking *wink wink* 😛

  2. Hi! Just found your blog and looked through it a bit, and I have to say generation 3 is shaping up to be awesome! Also your sims are just beautiful ❤ I wish I could get cc from the places you do but I just have no idea how to use tumblr, I get so confused every time I try :/ Still, your writing is wonderful and I just thought I'd drop by and say hi. So hi 🙂
    btw, I'm from Australia over here. You're not so far from everyone 😛

    • Oh, hi there!
      Thank you so much for coming along to read! I am glad you like what you have seen so far.
      Yes, Tumblr can be quite confusing to use. I think it would be easier if you look through sites like My Sims 3 Blog or Sims 3 CC Caboodle. They basically share cc from small blogs or Tumblrs and often they will have a direct link to the original post. It’s easy to find good stuff that way.
      And wow, finally another person from the Southern Hemisphere! Nice to meet you! (^-^)

  3. I just stopped by after seeing your blog mentioned on another blog. Just wanted to say don’t be so hard on yourself regarding your writing! It’s amazing that you managed to post a story, with pictures, at all (I have yet to be able to do so!). That is an accomplishment in itself! That you feel you have improved or are trying to improve your writing style is admirable!

  4. I see here that quite a few of my friends have stopped by after I posted a recommendation on FB about your story. Don’t worry about your first generation, as most people struggle getting the feel of a story when they start writing. That is why author’s have editors! My first 8 chapters are a complete embarrassment to me as well. I started my blog on the sim 3 site blog which is very small, just as a record of what I had done and proof I was following the rules. With memory postings, friends caught on and wanted more story. I then became brave and moved to blogspot. I recently moved over to my own site: http://www.storiesbybee.com You can read my first 8 and see you are not alone in how you feel about those first chapters. I have been going back and adding detail to them to make them better when I have time. I think as you get a feel for your characters and the story, everyone’s writing just improves I have many friends writing stories, so I am behind catching up, but I will get there I promise. I do love me a good story!

    • Thank you for your wise words, bmitjessesue! I guess that everyone has to start from somewhere, it will be cool in the long run and see how much you have improved. I will definitely check your story out, I’ll go look right now! And thank you for recommending my story too, that is really nice of you 😊 I did wonder why I had a sudden bunch of new followers, haha.

  5. Hey Lila, what sliders do you use? I’ve been searching all over the place for good ones and it’s all a bit bewildering, but I’d love to know how you get your sims so gorgeous!

  6. Your photos are so cool! If we could see Sim Magazines I think the photos there would look like your photos. If you don’t mind me asking, how are you making them look like that with those textures?

    • I’m just going to assume that you mean textures as in the more realistic look. I have all my Graphics sliders in Game Options up to the highest (e.g lighting, sim detail, etc). I also use an HQ mod which enhances my graphics further but I only recommend this if your computer is good (http://simsl3gacies.com/downloads/). I also use a lot of build/buy custom content that have realistic textures, which I generally download from The Sims Resource or Tumblr. In terms of my sims I make them wear plenty of cc like high quality skins, hairstyles, clothes and makeup. Lastly I edit my pictures in Photoshop to make them sharper and add lighting effects in, but it’s mostly custom content that contributes to my textures. I hope this is helpful, feel free to ask any more questions! If you want any site/cc recommendations I will be happy to help 🙂
