Welcome back, Heaven! It's been a while! We recently re-did the rules a tiny bit, but the old ones are still kept on the rules blog too.

I saw that! It's been so long that I'm not sure I could pick out the differences unless I looked over both extensively. The one thing I did notice was the expansion gift is gone (as makes sense) because I used it for gen 6 and then was like "wait, did I cheat and just pretend I didn't" and then saw those were new rules, lol

Heh... yeah... there hasn't been an expansion in many years now. *single tear* If you STILL have no experience with a career because all you do is legacy play with long periods of inactivity... grats, you're like me! xD I figured the rule would just confuse newer RLCers, and older ones could have it as a house rule if they adopt the new rules.

There were a few new rolls added for several categories, and careers were re-weighted, with some restrictions lifted as to which sim gets the career. Example: you roll couple, military, firefighter. Your heir could be military and the spouse firefighter, or the heir could be firefighter and the spouse military. Under the old rolls, you didn't get to pick which was which, and the heirs had an overwhelming chance to get rabbithole careers. I got so tired of that.

I was going to ask what the expansion gift was but I think I remember it? Wasn't it a rule that was like "if you get a new shiny you can mess around with it"?

Anyway, it's good to see you around again, Heaven ^-^

And I have an update! Chapter 4.11 So Emotional

Despite not being able to play too much lately (and being on a building spree), I do have a few chapters lined up just waiting for text to be added to them.

Expansion Gift was... if you got a new expansion in the middle of your legacy and wanted to play one of the careers, you could swap your sim to that career. It was probably worded better.

I am back with a sort-of update, mostly explaining what has happened in my game.

Chapter 2.1 - Glitches Galore

Random question as I'm curious if anyone else has played this way before, but what about a 'Grew out of it' option where an adult sim chooses an adult trait to replace one of their childish ones? The way the game limits what traits a child or baby can have but pre-made sims that start as adult can have all adult only traits, things like flirty instead of loves the outdoors or whatever. People change in reality as they grow up, but I'm thinking about rolling for a single trait change when a sims grows into young adulthood if it fits the story later on. I don't have any particular plot idea about this, but if I want someone to grow out of their clumsiness or absent-mindedness, or even go the opposite way and become less disciplined as an adult I think it would open up some fun story options. At the same time, I wouldn't want to do this on every age up. Thoughts?

I didn't suggest this earlier when we were changing the rules because you have to use a cheat to change it or a good amount of lifetime happiness points, and I didn't want to suggest something that can't be done in normal gameplay (I know if your sim makes enough friends or whatever they can gain an additional trait now, but I'm not sure if that's from a patch or where that comes from- not the uni max influence additional trait- but some of my sims in another save have gained traits from having a lot of close friends for some reason).
From this list;
https://www.carls-sims-3-guide.com/...ting/traits.php

Examples of adults only traits would be Born salesman, dramatic, dislikes children, charismatic, flirty, green thumb, great kisser, hopeless romantic, nat cook, nurturing, sculptor etc etc. So a sim that has the five traits Unflirty, Green Thumbed, Technophobe, Vegetarian, and Workaholic could not exist the way we play be as those are all teen and up traits. (Another thought is to change a trait if the sim in question goes through a midlife crisis, but that rarely ever happens in my games and it's kind of late in their life)

Great to see FutureCarrie posting (And Heaven, I remember you! I'll stalk your story a bit this week. :> )

You just gave your sims a midlife crisis
I use a mod that enables all traits for all ages so that not every second baby in my legacy is an excitable outdoors lover. Didn't check the new rules for that but I remember that was explicitly allowed in the old rules. If I do want to give them some sort of character development not only in the story but also in game I use the LTR, that would probably be the way to go if you wanted to include that as a roll.

As Nocriel said, there is a mod that allows all traits to be selectable for all ages (the rules specifically allow you to use it; Mods section #5), and there's a lifetime reward that can change traits (you're not allowed to use this reward on a random traits roll, but otherwise, all bets are off). There's also the Unstable trait, which changes up your sim's traits.
