This is A GROOOVY Era! Times are a changin’ and those amazing, well raised kids are aging into hippie, unruly teenagers ! These sims are all about having a good time and prefer to live by their own rules- even if that means throwing their bras into a campfire!
What to do with Legacy A in 1970’s:
The adults in your legacy are now in their prime and are better at their crafts and skills. The family should be more established and very busy!
This is also the baby boomers era so if you want your original heirs to have anymore children- this is their LAST chance!!
Hair, clothing and some household deco should change. Your living room should look far OUT! BUT don’t get rid of any of your family portraits- these will be passed down from generation to generation.
Now that the kids are getting older, It’s time for a family TRIP!! Pack up and take the entire family on a 5 day vacation of your choice.
The first cell phone was produced in 1973- which means that your teenage sims and other members of the household can FINALLY begin using their cell phones to look for a job, order pizza and host awesome groovy shindigs.
Raising The Offsprings :
The Toddlers: Any toddler in the house will need to max out at least 2 skill levels AND have a friendship with every family member in the house in order to age up. Children: Any Child in the household must:
Maxed Out Two MORE skill levels before aging into a teenager.
Established one or more childhood friends to grow up with.
Maintains minimum grade B- average during at ALL times. If grades fall below B- child needs tutoring and must get homework help from parents and other siblings on the lot until grades are back up to par.
Teenagers : Your teenagers will be adults soon and will begin the next generation! It’s important to prepare them for this responsibility- but they are still Children in your sims eyes!
All teenagers must also begin pitching in around the house, taking out the trash (there were no electric trash cans back then), washing dishes, etc. -OR- get a part time job babysitting or working fast food.
Teenagers should keep a friendly relationship with high school friend and chill with them regularly.
Teenagers are encouraged to Host at least 3 events at their homes or at other venues in the sim world- one of which must be a party around a bonfire. Use these events to build new relationships with people and to create a more realistic atmosphere. Don’t be afraid to be creative with your parties and themes! Create protests, disco parties and more! The 70’s was all about diversity and FUN!
ALL teenagers must establish a high school sweetheart- things don’t have to last forever tho- it’s the 70’s, remember? Lol.
When your youngest child finally ages into a teenager and every adult on the lot has aged into their final adult stage- it is time to transition into the next generation!!
