7D Legacy Challenge

PhDSimmerPhDSimmer Posts: 80 Member
Hi Everyone!

I’ve devised this new legacy challenge with 7 generations based on the personalities of the 7 Dwarves from Snow White. I'm just basing this on the names/personalities of the dwarves, there is no requirement to recreate them or name your sims this way! Below are the rules for each generation, unless stated you can do whatever else you wish!

You may follow the general legacy challenge rules if you want. It is advised that you do not use cheats. If you want to share your gameplay use #7DLegacy. You can follow my progress Youtube if you like: https://tinyurl.com/ycpv3g5f

Feel free to get in contact here or on twitter (@phdsimmer) if you run into any issues/problems ... I’ll happily adjust the rules if needed!
Please credit me if you decide to have a go!

**********************

Generation 1: Doc - You are the founder of your legacy, smart and kind, career focused but love your family life too. You want to help people and so have used your brains to get through medical school and join the medical career.
Traits: Genius, Ambitious and Self-Assured
Aspiration: Successful Lineage
Career: Medical
Rules: You must reach the top of medical career and max either logic or programming. You must also complete your aspiration and have at least two children.

**********************

Generation 2: Sneezy – Your parent is a successful doctor but you still manage to always be ill. Perhaps it’s because you spend so much time outside? You love the outdoors, animals and collecting all sorts of interesting things. You’d never dream of eating meat and your favourite thing in the world is to go camping with your family/friends and play your guitar by the camp fire. One day you hope to meet the mysterious Hermit of Granite Falls.

**********************

Generation 3: Happy - You’ve always got a smile on your face and look on the bright side of life. Every cloud has a silver lining after all! You want to be the perfect parent but also strive to make a difference in the world and so decide to adopt and join the politics career.
Traits: Cheerful, Family-Orientated and Good

**********************

Generation 4: Bashful – Being the middle child you’ve always been ignored but it doesn’t bother you as you hate being center of attention. You don’t have many friends, but do have one best friend who you have a secret crush on. You are creative and spend your time doing creative things.

With only a C grade you’re career options are limited. You get a job at a local restaurant as a dishwasher but soon find you have a love of food and decide you want to be a Master Chef! But when things get tough you decide to switch career paths and join the Food Critic career so you can work from home to the hours that suit you.

    Ohhhh I've been looking for a new legacy! <3 I always get bored in gen 2 or end up rewriting the generations because I don't like some portion of it.
  • JoFCUKJoFCUK Posts: 11 New Member
    Hiya!

    I don't usually do challenges, but I was getting a bit bored so I decided to try one and I'm starting with yours, since it's not so 'over the top' chuckles.

    I'm on generation one at the moment and probably will be for a while since I use an ageing mod ha. Thank you for posting it :smiley:

    What do we do if we don't have Pets, or other expansions and packs like that? I only have Get To Work...
  • PhDSimmerPhDSimmer Posts: 80 Member
    @The3CB you can play without pets as Gen2 has different options. For everything else I would just adjust the goals/rules depending on what packs you have.

    I think you should place the rules with "-" marks so it would be more easy to read.

    Example:

    "- You must reach the top of medical career
    - Max either logic or programming.
    - You must complete your aspiration
    - Have at least two children."

    I really like this challenge tho ;3

    Hello, I'm a small porter from China. Although I know there are some offenses, I still want to ask. I love your challenge! <3 I hope more people will know about this challenge. I wonder if I can move it to a platform in China to let more people know?
