    Just started with this yesterday and already love it :) I really like the not-so-berry-Challenge and was looking for a challenge in a similar style, since I like to swap a bit between my save files. and this seems perfect for me
  • FanPhoriaFanPhoria Posts: 1,383 Member
    edited March 2019
    Alright, so I've started playing this and it's been really pretty fun (tho I think I made some mistakes, which I'll talk about in a min), but I've read ahead and--absolutely nothing against the creator of this challenge, it's a really fantastic idea and they put a lot of thought into it!--but I was a little disappointed to find that not many generations past the first really have much to do with gardening. That might be what some people want, but I really wanted something focussed on the gardening theme.

    So!

    I've worked up a bit of a revamp, still taking a lot from the original challenge, but making it a little more focused on plants and the outdoors throughout, and also making some "rules" to address some dumb things I did (that is, strong suggestions to not do 🌺🌺🌺🌺 that makes things less fun lol). I will be making this based on the packs I have, so that's all the expansions and game packs except Strangerville, and I've also taken out the berry challenge bits cause I'm just not familiar enough with that to know what to do with it.

    Like I said, most of this will be pretty similar to above (to start out with anyway) and I'll highlight my additions. Also, you may notice I cheated and called the first gen the "founder" so I could fit an extra generation in and still call it ten. Sorry.

    I'll be putting the rest under the cut cause long.
    Basic rules:

    Money Cheats are NOT allowed
    Aesthetic CC and poses are FINE
    Needs must be on decay AT ALL TIMES
    Feel free to pause aging ONLY FOR STORY PURPOSES
    Your Sims must live on the SAME LOT for the whole 10 generations. A larger lot is recommended
    Any world is fine
    You may edit what your Sims look like in CAS if they plum
    You are not allowed to download any lots or rooms from the gallery with harvestables in them (I did this cause I like to thematically fill out my world and it was dumb)
    You are not allowed to buy the money tree reward trait until the final generation.
    Adoption is okay, but always adopt babies and don't age them up prematurely
    You may play on any lifespan, just consider them easy, normal and hard modes respectively.
    All ongoing requirements for each generation are in effect only as long as they are the "reigning" generation, before the next one takes over, in case that is unclear.

    Information:

    Your entire 10 generations will be named after various plants you could find or have in your garden harvestable plants in the Sims 4 that you will have in your garden. This is inspired by the fact that your Sims will have a love for nature throughout all 10 generations, living their life on the family farm. This challenge will be about about growing and maintaining a garden through those generations, and you will need to keep the garden begun by your founder alive throughout.

    Founder Generation: ROSE

    Reach level 10 of the gardening skill

    By the end of this sim's life, you must have a perfect example of the rose plant growing on your lot.

    Generation 1: DAISY
    Traits: Outgoing, Good, Self Assured

    Aspiration: Friend of the World

    Rules:

    Complete the Aspiration (only one child required, but more okay)
    Marry into one of the "elite" families in the game (Landgraabs, Goths, Villereals, ect.) What qualifies is up to you, and if you don't play with MCCC I realize this will be difficult, so just make sure they live in a big house or something, lol.

    Generation 5: HUCKLEBERRY
    Traits: Slob, Loves Outdoors, Loner

    Aspiration: Outdoor Enthusiast

    Information: Left to basically run wild as a kid, you've come to love and be fascinated by the wilderness.

    Spend every summer in Selvadorada (yes, all of it, save up.)

    Generation 8: APPLE

    Aspiration: Friend of the Animals

    You should already have a perfect apple tree; if not, get one. If they can be improved, get at least one of the catnips to perfect. There are no marriage requirements, you're welcome to get an heir any way you like, including adoption. But marriage and natural offspring are also permitted.

    Generation 9: LILY
    Traits: Gloomy, Good, Bookworm

    Aspiration: Renaissance Sim

    Information: You're used to pets and books than people, but that doesn't mean you don't like or care about them. That there's so much evil in the world saddens you terribly...but maybe there's something you can do about that...

    Rules:

    Complete the Aspiration
    Careers chosen to complete the aspiration must be chosen from the following: doctor, detective, scientist, gardener, writer, secret agent (diamond agent branch, if you get that far), politician, astronaut (space ranger branch, if you get that far)

    Reach max vampire lore skill.
    Make at least one garlic braid.
    Make a vampire cure.
    Cure OR KILL (via sunlight) Vlad Straud (if he's made it this long, lol. If not, pick another evil vampire that's spawned, or make one yourself.)
    Maintain the garden begun by your predecessors
    You should already have a perfect lily plant; if not, get one. Get one of the vampire plants to perfect.

    And finally (sheesh, is anyone gonna read this? Let me know, anybody who's gotten this far, lmao)--

    Generation 10: ORCHID
    Traits: Self absorbed, Materialistic, Romantic

    Aspiration: You choose! You've earned it! You can pick from the following: Fabulously Wealthy, City Native, Serial Romantic, or World Famous Celebrity

    (we're back to taking a lot of inspiration from the original with this last one, so let's throw another bit of thanks back their way, yah?)

    Information: After everything, you finally decide that your family is worth more than living on a farm forever. Who said it was OUR job to fix the world, make it greener, or more beautiful? Let somebody else do that! It’s time for your legacy to move on. You want to move out into a penthouse in the city and create an exciting future for generations to come!

    Rules:

    Complete the Aspiration
    Have a perfect orchid plant in a pot with you in the city (you should already have perfect orchids, so this should be easy)
    Purchase the money tree reward trait and grow a money tree (I think you should be able to grow/have it in a pot in an apartment/penthouse)--You must have purchased the trait BEFORE moving to the city, and until you do you must still maintain the garden!
    "Dye" your hair a different color from your natural one--unnatural hues encouraged!
    Marry someone living in a swag place in San Myshuno and move in with them.
    Join one of the following careers: Actor/Actress, Business, Politician (Politician branch), Social Media, or Style Influencer.
    Reach level 10 your chosen career
    Throw a party every weekend + every holiday
    Have at least 1 child

    And lastly--this is more for you, the player, really--after you've sold your family farmhouse...turn it into a park! Renovate it, make it a public space, and then have your sim visit it every Sunday with their family. Who knows? Maybe one of their kids will want to head back out to the countryside, just like their great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandmother did!

    So, yeah, that's what I got. I really hope least one other person gets kick out this cause I do not want to admit how long I took on it lol.

    And finally (sheesh, is anyone gonna read this? Let me know, anybody who's gotten this far, lmao)--

    Generation 10: ORCHID
    Traits: Self absorbed, Materialistic, Romantic

    Aspiration: You choose! You've earned it! You can pick from the following: Fabulously Wealthy, City Native, Serial Romantic, or World Famous Celebrity

    (we're back to taking a lot of inspiration from the original with this last one, so let's throw another bit of thanks back their way, yah?)

    Information: After everything, you finally decide that your family is worth more than living on a farm forever. Who said it was OUR job to fix the world, make it greener, or more beautiful? Let somebody else do that! It’s time for your legacy to move on. You want to move out into a penthouse in the city and create an exciting future for generations to come!

    Rules:

    Complete the Aspiration
    Have a perfect orchid plant in a pot with you in the city (you should already have perfect orchids, so this should be easy)

    "Dye" your hair a different color from your natural one--unnatural hues encouraged!
    Marry someone living in a swag place in San Myshuno and move in with them.

    Reach level 10 your chosen career
    Throw a party every weekend + every holiday
    Have at least 1 child

    And lastly--this is more for you, the player, really--after you've sold your family farmhouse...turn it into a park! Renovate it, make it a public space, and then have your sim visit it every Sunday with their family. Who knows? Maybe one of their kids will want to head back out to the countryside, just like their great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandmother did!

    So, yeah, that's what I got. I really hope least one other person gets kick out this cause I do not want to admit how long I took on it lol.

    Oh WOW!!!!!! I am definitely going to be playing your version!!! Thank you so much for taking the time to share this, I'm in love!!!!!! <3 Amazing job.

    Here is an update on my legacy :)

    Gen: 1
    Heir: Jessie Blossom
    Career: Gardener level 3
    Skills: gardening 4, cooking 2, handiness 3, parenting 1
    Family: Jessie and her husband Neal got married in a heat of the moment at the romance festivale. They just got a little baby boy called Gideon and adopted a little Puppy called Peanut Butter (I loved this name, so I kept it :D)

    Right now my focus is to upgrade their house (they are still sleeping in a tent), get jessie up in her career and work on baby number 2.

    And I'm still trying to decide if I want to go for the original challenge or the version of @FanPhoria. I really like both. But Iguess I still have time to decide.

    Any other challenges I should try?
  • FanPhoriaFanPhoria Posts: 1,383 Member
    edited May 2019
    OKay, so, I started this a long time ago but then I got distracted, and also I didn't really like some of the things I'd done, and when I went back I couldn't really remember where I was at anyway, and plus I know I hadn't gotten that far...long story short, I decided to start over lol. I kept my same sim (I had her saved before starting playing), and I started from scratch, and I've just finished my first "season" in the sim world!

    Here's the founder of my gardener challenge, Roselee leRoux
    0OCK6LQ.png
    X8Z4okR.png
    7W20acQ.png

    I'd originally changed her name to "Rose Garden", cause I felt like the name I'd made was too weird, but I actually think that's part of why I didn't connect as much with my first run (tho there were other reason too, to be sure). She's actually based on my cousin (well, a grown-up version, she's 12 lol). Her name is Rose and she's lived her whole life in a big city, but she loves visiting the countryside and loves nature and plants and animals and bugs and things, and honestly thinking of her is kind of what inspired me to do this challenge. I'm doing my own version, that I posted here, kind of playtesting it really, and so I may post updates/things I learn as I go.

    I started in autumn, cause that's when my cousin's birthday is, which was actually pretty great, cause Harvestfest and gnomes are a great help to kicking off a gardening career! She's joined the Garden Gnomes, got two promotions, and even has a girlfriend now!

    It took a while for me to finally settle on a lot--at first I started on the big lot behind the lounge in Brindleton Bay, cause it seemed to have a lot of space, and she would be getting pets eventually. But then, I started really liking the idea of my garden legacy living right next to the magic tree in Willow Creek, even though the lots are smaller. I finally settled onto Daisy Hovel (cute name) even though it's only 20x30--still, I've had magnificent gardens on much smaller lots in the past, so I think I'll be okay! And it's really nice having the magic tree right in backyard--feels very appropriate!

    I downloaded an unfurnished barn refurb looking house form the gallery (sorry, I forgot to right down the builder's name!), and I'm slowly filling it with nice things. I decided I'd rather wait and get nicer things as she gets money than deck out the whole house right away. She basically started with just a bed, lol.

    oKX9d1o.jpg

    I mentioned in my post mapping out my own version that I made a rule against downloading lots with collectibles. Well, my one exception I think is Hare Square, since it has collectibles already and I almost always replace the default lot in my games. As long as it's comparable, garden wise, I think it's okay! So, I did download a nicer "clubhouse" for the Garden Gnomes (I always find Hare Square so lame for them)--again, sorry, forgot to jot down the builder.

    So, in her first week, Roselee spent a lot of time at her club house, as well as hunting around for other plants.
    xTaalvl.jpg
    (I think she looks so cute in the green pants she changes into for meetings, haha!) She's found basically all the autumn blooming plants, except grapes and roses ( I read somewhere roses bloom in both spring and fall in the sims). I was pretty bummed about not finding roses tbh--well, I found them, but none of them bloomed before the first snow--I really wanted her to pick some wild autumn roses! Ah well...

    Spooky Day was on the same night as the Humor and Hijinks Festival, which seemed appropriate, and she had a pretty good time even if the weather was pretty 🌺🌺🌺🌺.
    R7pMkXj.jpg

    She had a successful Harvestfest at her clubhouse with the other Garden Gnomes (haha! Gnomes :D), although I did forget that grand breakfasts have meat in them. Whoops.
    drTXaEJ.jpg
    She and Moira are becoming pretty good friends, and I'm thinking of Moira as a kinda of like a mentor to her.
    WecbG3t.jpg

    ANd, she did manage to find Sylvan Glade as well, although it took her a few tries. Again: whoops.
    Env2xsm.jpg

    So, yeah, it's been fun! I'm playing on long because it's first time doing a challenge like this, and also because I want to spend a good amount of time with this sim. I'll maybe post some more updates here if that doesn't get too annoying for everyone, haha.
  • mattiemayhemmattiemayhem Posts: 34 Member
    oh wow, i absolutely want to try this. Not only am I obsessed with legacy challenges, I'm obsessed with the aspect of the perfect garden. Would you suggest me doing a greenhouse or letting it air to the seasons?? Cause with having to pull *all* the plants through each generation can be difficult. I know sims 3 did this, but i haven't gardened long enough in sims 4 to see; do the plants not just die after a while, despite being treated every single day? is that a thing to worry about? also, do I have to get every plant naturally when I can or can I buy them?

    I have started this legacy but it is not clear when the next generation takes over..is it upon aging to elder or death of previous gen, or when the heir hits young adult.

    I have started this legacy but it is not clear when the next generation takes over..is it upon aging to elder or death of previous gen, or when the heir hits young adult.

    I'm doing my own modified version of this challenge (posted above), and i haven't gotten super far, BUT the way I've been playing so far is the new generation takes over when the previous one has completed all of their requirements, or they die. So, for instance, in my first gen I have in my version a "must have a perfect example o a rose plant your garden" requirement, which was taking forever and the only thing I had left for that generation really, but I didn't consider the Daisy generation to officially begin till I had, even tho I was still of course doing of of the things for that generation. But for some future ones that might not be super clear, cause the requirements don't all really "complete", so in that case I'd probably do "complete all the requirements that can be completed" and then whenever the next heir ages up to young adult their generation kicks in. Tho there is some overlap, since you might be working on adult requirements of the previous generation while doing things for the next that you need to when they're a kid/teen.

    Love the challenge but I have a question. My sims first child is a boy? Do I wait till they have a girl?
  • davis4455davis4455 Posts: 14 New Member
    i worked on my own version of this due to not having enough gardening/farming etc... i do like FanPhoria's take on it but i have my own i had an idea for this type of challenge a while ago and decided to see if someone made one and they did but i wanted to take some time and make my own and have some fun making backstory's for the sims and adding in things that people might not normally play with like aliens servos vampires etc... and the vacation worlds the alien collection basically frog cages with aliens inside them i forget what the collection for them is called tbh... i don't think i can make a spoiler tab so i will be uploading my list of things to imgr and wait for when i can make a post to put the photos in plus it will give me time to go over and read what i have done with mine so far the only lifestates that i didn't include were mermaids and spell casters because spell casters are a bit too easy and don't really work in challenges that well and mermaids i didn't include because if you're not in sulani they don't feel that good to play but by all means change up a generation to have a mermaid if you choose to live on the 50x50 lot in sulani that doesn't have water on the lot anyways this comment is long and i can't post photos yet for the rules and info
  • davis4455davis4455 Posts: 14 New Member
    oh i also got done reading your version and we had the same idea sort of for after the alien/scientist gen with the animal lover aspiration and the kid being distant from their parents mine takes a dark turn though
  • davis4455davis4455 Posts: 14 New Member
