There are two versions of this challenge
  • Rebuilding Edition
  • Fixer Upper Edition

Rebuilding Edition: A 10 generation legacy centered around building homes from the ground up.
Fixer Upper Edition: A 5 Generation legacy centered around preserving current homes in each world.

Starting Out: Rebuilding Edition
  • Bulldoze ALL lots
  • Founding Couple: Choose sims from the gallery or make your own founding couple based on coupling guidelines *see couplings below
  • CC and Mods are allowed!
  • For each generation build a new house for the heir to live.
    You must build or furnish your own home. Unfurnished lots are allowed in this challenge, search the gallery by using the #unfurnished for empty homes. The challenging part of this challenge is in the building so be creative! Make use of floor plans to create a special home for your sims. And there is also a wealth of info on the forums found here.
  • Spares are allowed to stay in the town if you like, just be sure you have enough space for each heir and their family to live.
  • Community Lots can be added in from the gallery or custom built by you!

Starting Out: Fixer Upper Edition
  • Using freerealestate move your founders to a currently built lot in the world of your choice.
  • Renovate that home using only 20,000 simoleans (plus any additional money you get if you sell any furnishings)
  • Select 4 EA made homes that are currently in that world, these will be your projects for the next generations.
  • Community Lots will need to be maintained and only interiors can be redesigned! Don't forget to spruce up the landscape as well.
  • All homes must maintain their existing walls. Additions are allowed but do not take down any existing walls.
  • The only exterior work that is allowed is painting the outside, new roofing and landscaping.

  • Willow Creek
  • Oasis Springs
  • Windeburg **
  • San Myshuno **
  • Brindleton Bay **
  • Del Sol Valley **
  • Strangerville **
**optional worlds

Additional Notes
  • Windenburg, Brindleton Bay, and Del Sol Valley are optional worlds to continue the challenge in once you have completed the two base worlds.
  • When you download potential mates move them to an empty lot and evict them so that they are shown as "Not In World". Alternatively, they can live in Newcrest. Only family/relatives are allowed to own real estate in your rebuilt world.
  • Please do not change the potential mate's traits.

Founder Couplings ***
  • Native American | White
  • Black | Hispanic
  • Asian | Black
  • White | Pacific Islander
*** Mix and match if you'd like these are just recommendations to get you started.

Note: Try and pick one! Each coupling will be used for at least one of your rotations through the various worlds.

Love is Colorblind
Part of this challenge is about exploring the genetics of the Sims 4 game through Legacy styled gameplay.
  • Heirs have to be paired with sims from a predetermined gene pool (this is the genetics part of the challenge)
  • Mates (listed below) have to be a different skin tone than the heir (i.e lighter or darker to promote diversity and test the games genetics)
    Alternatively you can let your sim choose who they wish to be with from the gene pool based on whims!

Play through generations comparing each generation's heirs and their families. Feel free to share pictures of their homes and day to day lives as well. Traits for each heir sim must be randomized. There aren't deadlines for completing this and you can play at your own pace. Anyone can join at any time. So don't just lurk, Join!
