Generation One – The Farmer

"I always wanted to be a farmer. There is a tradition of that in my family."

Your family was always into the farming deal. They spent their days working hard and asked their children to do the same. When you turned 18, your parents surprised you with your own plot of land to continue on tradition. Having always been one to want to impress the folks, you began creating your own garden; you'd rather dedicate your life to that than a dreadful 9 to 5 suit and tie anyway.

Objectives:

Grow a garden with every type of plant from the store in it (you may buy 5 of them, the rest you have to find on your own)
Get married, but no woohoo before marriage
Have a boy and a girl. Keep trying til you do!
Master the garden skill

Have and complete one of the nature aspirations
No gardeners! You may join the gardening club, however, you may not call a group meeting at your house more than once a week.

Optional objectives:

Obtain and plant every type of plant
Catch every type of fish
Marry a gal/guy with "Loves Outdoors"
Master Fisherman Skill

Generation Two – The Savvy City Slicker

"I was expected to be a farmer like my father and siblings. I broke tradition. It was great."

Life with your hands in the dirt wasn't the life for you. You always craved to spend more time in the city, yearning for the excitement and noise. You knew there were more to life than seeing seeds sprout into plants or fishing in the local pond. Besides, your siblings were more than happy to help our on the farm - your family didn't need you too. You decide to follow your heart, and move to the city.

Objectives:

Get to level 10 in the Business Career
Move out of your parents home. Live on your own until one of your parents die, then move back in to take care of the surviving parent.
Get to level 10 in Charisma skill
Get married.
Have at least one kid.
Have and complete a Fortune Aspiration

Optional Objectives:

Become enemies with your father and/or mother (why can't you be like your brother or/and sister?) before entering your career.

City Living Optional Expansion Path:

Move to San Myshuno on your own and live in an apartment that needs TLC until you save enough for a nicer place (20,000 household funds) – move back into your old home when one of your parents die in order to take care of the survivor.
Do not take your family's money with you when you move out – your parents do not support your decisions and will not help you with anything.
You love the city – attend every festival that you can (exceptions for if you are at work or on a date/attending a wedding, ect).
Get to level 10 in the Business Career OR doctor career.
Get to level 10 in Charisma skill.
Get married.
Have at least one kid.
Have and complete a Fortune Aspiration OR City Native Aspiration.

Generation 3 – The Wild Child

“My parents were always working, I was left alone. I learned how to live, how to survive, on my own."

Your parents have always seemed to spend more time in the office than home. So you decided to go to different places and see the world outside your own town. Better than remaining at home, that was for sure.

Generation Four Option 1 – The Artist

“The more I find, the more I type, and the more I learn of my parent's lives."

Your parents have led an interesting and dark life. With rich and vivid stories that were always told to you, both to entertain and warn, a creative spark was ignited in you. They filled you with the need to write and paint the images they spoke about.

Go to an Arts Center once a week
Complete 5 murals/graffiti

Generation Four Option 2 - The Musician

"Though it might not be quite from my parents, I learned to play the guitar, and sing simple songs."

It must be that creative gene because you were born with a guitar in your hand. You've played it ever since you were able to pick it up, not caring if you didn't strum correctly or even well. But that you knew would get better in time. As it always does.

"Playing cops and robbers as a kid, I always wanted to kick bad-guy butt."

Objectives:

Join Secret Agent career, Diamond Agent route and complete it
Max Logic skill
Max Athletic skill
Marry your high school sweetheart

Donate to charity once a week

Get to Work Optional Expansion Path:

Generation Six – The Evil Genius

"Some people just want to watch the world burn."

Optional Objectives:

Have 1 of your enemies be the previous generation's heir (their mother or father)

Generation Seven – The Bleeding Heart

“I won't end up like you!”

You grew up in the seedy underbelly, exposed to harsh realities far earlier than any child should have been. At first you thought your parents were cool – they took what they wanted, when they wanted it and allowed you to do the same. However, as you grew older you realized the harm they were causing and became determined to expose the very environment that helped shaped you.

Generation Eight – The Spoiled Brat

“Who says I can't? I want one! Now!”

You grew up with a silver spoon in your mouth. Anything you asked for your parents gave you and if they ever dared to say no, you screamed until you got your way. You never had to earn anything and now, as heir to a fortune, you don't see any point in working. You spend your family's fortune on lavish dinners, spa days and whatever else might catch your eye.

Objectives:

Marry and woohoo a sim of your choice
Have two kids
Do not get a job (spouse can but the ‘heir’ cannot)

If you have the parenting pack you MAY NOT discipline your children or ground them, but your spouse may!

Generation Nine – The Star Gazer

"I don’t know why but I’ve always been fascinated with science, the Earth and space. The unknown is enthralling."

" 'Real' friends? They are my real friends."

Your parents were often busy with their own lives, chasing the unknown. They helped you study and made sure you had food to eat, but you always felt they weren't invested in other parts of your life. You took solace in the digital realm, finding comfort and support through forums, video games and social media sites.

    @Arrowleaf Arrow! You're back! I was such a huge fan of your rainbowcies and I was sad when you stopped writing. I went by a different username though. Are you going to be hosting the story here, or on a different thread? I would love to have the link so I can read it. :)
    Banner_zpstzixcn91.png
  • ArrowleafArrowleaf Posts: 3,871 Member
    Haha, what was your username?! I actually created a new account thinking everything of mine had been wiped in the year I was gone but it wasn't, to my surprise. :]

    Ah, I will probably create my own post for it (and a blog) but I'll also link it under the legacies section of this. I kind of want to do another rainbowcy (apparently I'm still addicted to Berry Sweets) but I have to go figure out all of the CC for it so I just might make this DitFT 'normal' sims.

    I don't know if you would remember, but I was CO4Sims3. I had to create a new account because I wanted to separate from my family's account now that I'm older. I didn't know about this member mumbo-jumbo, so that is putting a damper on my new story. But, oh well, I'm not really a complainer. I'm glad all your content was saved though!

    I am so sad about the less customizable sims when it comes to color, because I was so in love with Berry Sweet sims. Now I'm making normal looking sims and it is interesting going back to that dynamic of creativity. Normal isn't bad though, and I can't wait to read your DitFT story.

  • ArrowleafArrowleaf Posts: 3,871 Member
    I do remember you. :] Yeah, the new member thing sucks. I still don't know how to do half the things I want to do anymore, I have to re-learn the forums and the sims all over again, but it's better than being a new member. It's weird how they did that.


    Yeah, normal is not bad at all! I just have that berry sweet in my veins, I guess. You'll have to link me to your story whenever you are able to!

    I think i will try this challenge but could you tell me do we need to find all the plants for Generation 1..Thanks so much for posting this challenge
  • JmaraaJmaraa Posts: 217 Member
    > @olyanaesme said:

    only so many plants are available for purchase. the rest, you will have to hunt for them... this is an optional objective and i think if you focus on looking for 100% of the plants, you'll be stuck in gen 1 for a long time (same with all the fish)

    I would think after the criminal gen, the kid would want to be a cop or secret agent. For storytelling purposes, this would create more drama/conflict between parent and child. Being a writer doesn't make sense.

  • ArrowleafArrowleaf Posts: 3,871 Member
    Good idea! I'll go back through and re-work the order of the generations. My original thought (way back when I first made this) was that they were a journalist, more-so than a writer, in order to bring light to the public the evil misdeeds of their parent's gang but that does make more sense.

    Okay, how about this? I re ordered them, updated a lot of stuff, and condensed it down to just ten generations. :D
