Rules

No Cheats
No Mods that can make the challenge easier or provide you with an advantage i.e mods that alter the prices of objects or bills or enable easier promotions etc
Custom Content is allowed
No quitting game without saving
The heir is required to stay on the lot until they die
No Adoptions (exception for gen 10/11)
No Lifetime Rewards (exception for gen 2 and Fertility Treatment)
You are allowed to play other households as long as you do not interact with the sims involved with the legacy (so i.e I am going to change the clothes on one of the guys and I'm going to make one of her friends get married or something)
When you move onto the next generation, the old heir/founder cannot earn points from their point chart thingy, likewise, they cannot lose points either.
Only skills that have been maxed by the heir to the next/of the current generation are counted for points.
You may use the MC Control Center on other sims as long as they are not married to the heir, going to become the heir and/or related to the heir and still living in the household.

Obviously if your sim gets abducted, there is nothing you can do about it, and that's fine. It'll be interesting to introduce alien blood into timeline.

This counts for every generation: +25pts for every aspiration completed.

    This sounds neat. The pts for gen 1 are a little confusing. 2 pts for reaching level two of career, but I have to get to five. So I just get points for two? Also the -20 if has akid before/after reaching level two. I thought they can't have a kid til they reach level 5 so why would I lose 20 for having a kid after level 2?

    @dowens13 Thanks for letting me know about that, I will edit it so it makes sense :) I copy and pasted my old parentcy challenge for TS3 and changed little bits and added more generations without reading through.

    EDIT: I've changed it now, she has to get to level 2 rather than level 5.

    @Cookingpup99 *air high fives back* I haven't posted anything on the Parentcy Challenge yet but there are a few posts on my main family (the one I started TS4 with) and one post on the Legacy challenge. The blog's name is aria-kingblood.blogspot.com and I'd appreciate it a lot of course if you took some time to read it! :D

    @aria_kingblood‌ I'll make sure to do so !!!

    EDIT: I love the moustache mouse :)

    EDIT: For some reason I can't comment on your legacy because I 'don't own this username' on WordPress which I do but I think it's great, can't wait to read some more. I've been doing my own legacy challenge legacy, at Gen 4, might finish when Gen 6 is born because it's dragging on a bit and I'd really like to get on with a different legacy.

    This sounds like an awesome challenge!! I just am confused on generation 4 parents since there isn't prom yet on the Sims 4 and you can't actually meet sims AT school. Should I just try to have them meet some teens around the town or am I allowed to create my own teens and put them in the town? Other than that I am totally going to start this today!! :)
  • Cookingpup99Cookingpup99 Posts: 420 Member
    @aria_kingblood‌ Thank you so much! :) I downloaded her hair off of TSR but it shows up weird in game so I had to change it to a similar hairstyle that was already on it. I'm having a break from TS4 at the mo.

    @SwimmyFishy107‌ I am so glad that you're going to try this out. Thank you for pointing that out, I updated this from the one I did for TS3 and did a quick skim through, I probably should have read it properly. I'm changing it now :)

    @cookingpup99 Sure! I've done a lot of playing but I got some pictures of her and her twin daughters, Candice and Camilla. I dont know how to send them to you, though.
  • Cookingpup99Cookingpup99 Posts: 420 Member
    @SwimmyFishy107‌ It's so cool that your sim had twins :) Unfortunately you can't send me through any pictures because you're still a new member :( Maybe if you upload them to the gallery, I might be able to see them.

    I like the look of this Legacy, and would like to try it out! Do you still have the link for the Sims 3 version as well? I've been going back and forth between the two games, I admit. They're still so different.
