@PaQuilter1 thank you! although what I meant to ask was if you can still rename your past generations label in the family portrait. Because I still can't decide what to label my current generation and I'm already itching to retire them.

@lowteacup When you name your current generation, it puts the name across the top of all the generations. I think that's what you mean. I thought you meant when you tap on a SIM in a previous generation...that name you can't change. 😉😊

Mine are a bit sad at moment, because of @VintageStarlette 's Vivien's retirement...

When the gems come through next week they'll retire and Esther on the left, and Samuel Vince, the little boy, will take over...

Yes, EA! Forcible retirement has impact! And it ain't good! 😫😭

But good friends like 🖤 @themummyof4 make mourning bearable.

Below: Vivien Leigh (R.I.P.) is on the far left along with Greta Garbo and the Wayne family—all in mourning attire out of respect for the pensioned. 😞

Great to see all your households! And their... interesting clothes choice :P

 

I'm playing the game legacy challenge style, where heirs are always females. My first Sim was Mai, then her daughter Mai II, Mai III, etc. If you are familiar with the legacy challenge rules - I'm playing a matriarchy.

 

What does that mean? It means that when Mai IV has 6 boys in a row, things get a bit crowded over here:

(From left to right: Mai IV, 3rd son, 1st son, Mai IV's brother, 5th son, Mai IV's husband, 6th son, 2nd son, 4th son)

 

Will the 7th child be a girl? I'll keep you updated! Standard smile

@EA_Mai That's awesome, Mai, but what happens to the Matriarchy when there are no female heirs? Do you adopt? 😮
