UPDATE 25/09/21: Adoptions are allowed! (excluding generation 1) I realise no adoptions wasn't a very inclusive rule and have removed it to be more inclusive!
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 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 sims and I'm going to make one of their friends get married or something) When you move onto the next generation, the old heir/founder cannot earn points from their point chart, 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.
GENERATION 1: SINGLE PARENT OF ONE (Two if they have twins, three if triplets)
