Sims 2 Lepacy Challenge [Rules]

Hi! I didn’t actually create this challenge, it was originally created for the Sims 3 by simpishly. The Sims 2 version was created by simerella. I decided to create my own Sims 2 version to match my gameplay style. I’m adding in more requirements for myself, so if you like gameplay that’s a little more directed, this challenge might be for you!

A lepacy is a legacy challenge where each generation is based on one of the expansion packs! This will help you explore different parts of gameplay in each expansion. This challenge will be 8-9 generations depending on if you play the base game and university generations together or separately. It could be less if you decide to skip over an expansion pack though. It’s your game, so it’s up to you!

You can pick any town you want to play in, or you can make a new one. I would recommend playing in a town you haven’t played in before, or the town you’ve played the least. You will be in this town for the entire challenge, but you will be moving between different subhoods, so choose wisely. You can add in additional challenges if you want, such as creating a matriarchy or a patriarchy. You can also add in other life states to your legacy if you want. You win the challenge once your final heir completes all of the requirements.

And that’s it! You can change whatever you want to meet your needs. I created this challenge nearly two years ago and I've had it set up to play, but only recently started. I was planning on doing this as an LP on my youtube channel, but instead I'm planning to post updates on my tumblr (link in the replies).

If you play test faster than me, please let me know if there’s something that cannot be completed. This version is a lot more in depth than the original for TS3 and the other version for TS2. If you plan to play with this version, link me to your version so I can check it out! Thanks for reading all of this!

    I'm so bookmarking this! I need a push to explore each of the XPs on their own and this is perfect <3 Plus the rules are ones even I can achieve :p Thanks!
    Once you've met someone you never really forget them. It just takes a while for your memories to return.
