So I backed up my families and sims before I installed pets how many months ago now? And yet I cannot find the backups for the important things: The Povans and The Appleberrys :( I'll have to completely recreate both families as I do not have the saved families. This means going into CAS, creating a family, trying to replicate the kids, etc. I have no idea HOW, as every sim I created in CAS and saved (besides my self-sim and one other) is perfectly intact.
I am SO not up to this for the Povans -_- I was damn near on the next generation and I do not have the patience to rebuild the family and get the kids right much less redo their amazing house I loved so much. I think I may have the pics to do one last update, but for all intents and purposes, they are dead. I am actually quite upset about this as they were my first TS3 legacy :(
The Appleberrys, on the other hand, should be relatively easy to replicate and fix, as Bea hadn't even reached childhood in my game so I have no idea what she will/would have looked like. And they were still living in a legacy shack. I can just marry Penny and Jett in CAS and play with genetics to get a new Bea. This makes me sad, but much more hopeful than the Povans.
In the meantime, until I have the mental fortitude to redo the Appleberrys, I am going to start a new legacy. Details soon and last update, if any, for the poor, dead Povans T_T
