:Thanks for the source! The developpers themselves have lost track of their own stories and lost the remaining consistency. Clearly, Malcolm (The Sims 3 PC) and Malcolm (console) are different Sims. The first is kind and will be the father of Adrien and the second one is evil and the father of Mimi and Dudley. Then ''The Sims 4'' arrives, setting a new timeline and alternate versions of known Sims. Malcolm (The Sims 4) is an alternate version of Malcolm (The Sims 3), and now they say Malcolm (The Sims 4) is Malcolm (Gallery) and Malcolm (console)? Non-sense... The only logical way to see this is to say there are 3 Sims :

:* Malcolm (The Sims 3 PC) -> Malcolm (The Sims 3 console)
  +
:* Malcolm (The Sims console / Bustin out)
  +
:* An alternate Malcolm merging the two previous ones : Malcolm (The Sims 4) -> Malcolm (Gallery)

:Then Mimi and Dudley are alternate versions of the ones from ''The Sims'' (console) and not just perfect "recreation" like the Smith family for example.

Talk:Malcolm Landgraab

This is a page for discussing improvements to Malcolm Landgraab

Talk pages are used to discuss changes or improvements to the article or page only. Please use the game discussions forum for game discussions, help desk for game questions, or the off-topic forum for general conversations. Real-time conversation about The Sims (as well as off-topic discussions) can also be found on The Sims Wiki's IRC Channel or Discord server.

It appears that different console platforms have different versions of an adult Malcolm. He does not always go into the same profession or marry the same person. This is going to make infoboxing and family-tree updating difficult. Dharden (talk) 22:06, December 24, 2010 (UTC)

Who is he?

Personally I think he must be a distant cousin to Malcolm Landgraab III, making him the second cousin to Malcolm Landgraab IV.C.Syde65 (talk) 11:11, December 20, 2013 (UTC)


Actually i think it's more like this:


Gregory Landgraab + Unknown lady = Kermit Landgraab

-

Kermit + Kitty = Chester Landgraab & Admiral Malcolm Landgraab I

-

Admiral Malcolm Landgraab I + Malcolm I's wife = Malcolm Landgraab II

Admiral Malcolm Landgraab I + Stella Livorno = Magnus Landgraab, François Landgraab

Chester + Queenie = Nancy

-

Malcolm II + Marion = Malcolm III

Nancy + Geoffrey (né Knack) = TS3!Malcolm

Magnus Landgraab + his wife = TS1!Malcolm

François Landgraab + Veronica = Todd

-

Malcolm III + Margaret (neé Buckingham) = Malcolm IV

TS3!Malcolm + Hannelore = Adrien

TS1!Malcolm + "Mom" = Dudley and Mimi

-

Malcolm IV + Bambi = Malcolm V (Malcolm VI, Malcolm VII, etc.)

Dudley changed his name to String Bean, even if he has kids they will have the "bean" surname anyway. Mimi marries into a poorer-class family and possibly takes their surname. 

Adrien + someone (Rita Nelson?) = Posie's husband (Posie and her husband have Christina)

Todd + someone (Seema Sielen?) = someone (30-ish generations later, this "someone" gives birth to, or conceives, Oasis Landing's Gregory Landgraab.) 94.37.98.213 (talk) 22:19, June 12, 2014 (UTC)


The Landgraab family tree in my opinion

Admiral Landgraab/Gregory Landgraab -Married- Unknown

Kermit Landgraab (son/grandson/great-grandson of Gregory/Admiral Landgraab) -Married- Kitty Landgraab

Chester Landgraab (son of Kermit & Kitty) -Married- Queenie Landgraab (died young)

Malcolm Landgraab (Roaring Heights) (second son of Kermit & Kitty) -Married- Unknown/Stella Livorno (lover)

Nancy Landgraab (daughter of Chester & Kitty) -Married- Geoffrey Landgraab

Malcolm Landgraab II (son of Malcolm and ?) -Married- Marion Landgraab

Malcolm Landgraab (Sunset Valley) (son of Nancy and Geoffrey) -Married- Hannelore Landgraab

Malcolm Landgraab III (son of Malcolm II and Marion) -Married- Margaret Landgraab (both died young)

Adrien Landgraab (son of Malcolm and Hannelore) - Unknown

Malcolm Landgraab IV (son of Malcolm III and Marion) - Unknown

Malcolm Landgraab V? (possible son of Malcolm IV) -Married- Bambi Landgraab

Notes

  • I am NOT including Momconsole MalcolmDudleyMimi and the mentioned Magnus Landgraab
  • I've listed the Nintendo DS Malcolm as the possible son of Malcolm Landgraab IV. This is just a theory based on the timeline.
  • I am not sure if the Landgraabs are more closely related to Gregory or Admiral Landgraab so I listed them both as possible parents, grandparents, great-grandparents or ancestors to Kermit.
  • I chose the Roaring Heights Malcolm as Malcolm Landgraab I since his age and his absence from the Sims 2 family tree add up. Of course the Sunset Valley Malcolm isn't Malcolm I since it would require him to be older than his own grandfather.

Suggestion to merge this page with Malcolm Landgraab (console)

I'd like to suggest merging the two pages for Malcolm Landgraab. Both articles could be improved and it seems highly likely that they are the same person. (It definitely makes more sense than the different versions of Bob Newbie and Betty Newbie being the same people.)

I agree that he's probably a distant cousin to Malcolm Landgraab III. It's also established that he remarried (possible multiple times).

Gvaudoin (talk) 14:30, January 11, 2018 (UTC)

I'm not too entirely sure if we should be deciding whether or not all these Malcolm Landgraabs are the same people. Since the wiki is supposed to be reporting on the facts, if there are any ambiguities it may be better to keep pages separate. That being said, I noticed that there is a Sims 4 Sim on this page which should probably go on a Malcolm Landgraab (The Sims 4) and not in this article, given how TS4 is in a parallel universe. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 15:07, January 24, 2018 (UTC)
Oh wait, hmm that page was already created... as a bad, low quality stub (which I have since redirected). Perhaps it's time we organized this stuff better?
Since this Malcolm Landgraab appears in more games and appears to be more prominent, perhaps we could do the following:
For the last point, though, is there any evidence that suggests the two are definitely the same person? That would be a lot of information crammed onto one page... and the excessive usage of {{Sim}} templates could possibly break the parser as those templates are not cheap to use. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 15:13, January 24, 2018 (UTC)
I think your suggestion makes a lot of sense. The only real inconsistency happens with the Sims 4 version where Malcolm is younger than Bella and Mortimer while they are the same age in the Sims 3 and the console games. But the same happens with other Sims as well like the Caliente sisters who are also very different in the Sims 4 and it's meant to be an alternate universe anyway.
Regarding the templates: The article would use 5 Sim templates if we don't use the grey one at the start. Gvaudoin (talk) 18:02, January 27, 2018 (UTC)
Im 100% agree with this family tree and merging idea of pages ! M.Plènozas (talk) 02:26, March 2, 2018 (UTC)
I would also agree as it would make the information of the Landgraabs less congested and make it easier for others to find information about the Landgraabs, although a good question is whether or not consistency of Sims matters in the case of merges. Seyurian18 (talk) 09:58, March 12, 2018 (UTC)
Well, I think there are always some inconsistencies because the producers don't pay that much attention to continuity but I still agree with k6ka's suggestion and I think the article could be vastly improved by merging the pages and giving the article a better structure. In the intro it could be mentioned that he was first introdurced in SimCity 3000. After that I would use chronological order for the biography (The Sims 3 - The Sims 3 (console) - The Sims (console) - The Sims Bustin' Out (console)) with the exception of the alternate universe version from The Sims 4. Some of the notes from the end of this article would become redundant while most of the trivia from the console article could be used for the biography. Gvaudoin (talk) 14:00, March 12, 2018 (UTC)
I agree with what you say as that could help improve the article and make reading information about Malcom easier. Seyurian18 (talk) 08:09, March 13, 2018 (UTC)
I would prefer the articles remain separate for now. There isn't enough evidence to say that the two Sims are the same person, considering multiple people are purposefully named Malcolm Landgraab. Ѧüя◎ґ (talk) 16:21, March 13, 2018 (UTC)
I think this discussion has been stalled for too long. I suggest we make a decision rather soon, because as of now I imagine it's really confusing for wiki goers that a page called "Malcolm Landgraab (The Sims 3)" is where they can find information on Malcolm from The Sims 4.
I want to make the suggestion to either make a "Malcolm Landgraab (The Sims 4)" page - which would be my preference, because both Malcolms seem to be vastly different from each other - or we move this page to "Malcolm Landgraab" (while moving it's current contents to "Malcolm Landgraab (disambiguation)" as it was suggested by K6ka). - KailynnKat(talk/fanon) 19:20, November 27, 2018 (UTC)
But if we make a Malcolm Landgraab (The Sims 3) and a Malcolm Landgraab (The Sims 4) page wouldn't that mean that we need to separate the pages for Nancy Landgraab and Geoffrey Landgraab? I feel like that could trigger a chain reaction and a lot of other pages would have to be seperated too. I think that they are very clearly meant to be the same character just like the Dina Caliente and Nina Caliente who are also different in each game. So, I don't really see why Malcolm Landgraab should be the one with multiple pages. I agree that it's very confusing right now though. The best idea imo is still to rename the disambiguation page and rename this page to "Malcolm Landgraab". Just have seperate sections for each game on one page like with the Goths, the Calientes, and so many others. —Gvaudoin 💬 20:01, November 27, 2018 (UTC)
You have a point. I did see a discussion somewhere around here about seperating The Sims 4 versions from the rest or making a seperate page for every single version, but until that discussion is resolved it's probably the best for now to simply rename this page to "Malcolm Landgraab". - KailynnKat(talk/fanon) 20:10, November 27, 2018 (UTC)
I also agree to just rename this page to "Malcolm Landgraab". - SimDestroyer (talk) 20:11, November 27, 2018 (UTC)
It seems like the easiest solution to me. I'd also like to add that there has never been a lot of consistency when in comes to things like age and personality. For example, Kaylynn Langerak is a lot younger than Bella and Mortimer in The Sims 2 but she's older than them in The Sims 3. In The Sims 2, Dina is lazy and Nina is active but in The Sims 4 it's the other way round. EA should consult the Wiki when they make these characters! 😄 —Gvaudoin 💬 20:25, November 27, 2018 (UTC)

Official confirmation

It's been confirmed that this Malcolm is a younger version of Malcolm Landgraab (console).

SimGuru Morgan talks about it on this stream: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/426096933?t=01h09m32s

An official version of an elder Malcolm with his family was uploaded to the Gallery by Maxis: https://www.ea.com/games/the-sims/the-sims-4/pc/gallery/AB949CBF7D9F11E986D926A9E137F5E7

I think the console page should be merged with this page then. --Sumaes01 (talk) 23:20, May 25, 2019 (UTC)
Agreed. At this point, I don't see any reason to have two separate pages for Malcolm. —Gvaudoin 💬 08:53, May 27, 2019 (UTC)
