This challenge is based on the Disney Princesses, mostly the cartoon versions and not the live action ones. I liked the original version of this challenge, but didn't think there was a lot of challenge in most of the generations. I tried fleshing them out and adding a lot more challenge as well as adding in expansions and game pack content. I also changed the order to be based on when the movies released.

This challenge assumes a female heir for each generation, but feel free to change it to whatever you want. It can easily be gender-bent to whatever you like! Also, I left the gender of the potential romance interests neutral as well to be LGBT+ friendly! Generation 1: Snow White Someday my prince will come...
Snow White starts as a teenager with an Evil Stepmother. The Evil Stepmother and Snow White must be enemies, with the Evil Stepmother having evil and mean traits. The Evil Stepmother may be a YA, Adult, or Elder (up to you!).

Why is the order different from the original?
I ordered my list by when the movies were originally released. The order doesn't honestly matter though, you can order yours however you wish.
Why did you make a different version of the Disney Princess Challenge?
Well, besides Snow White and kinda Cinderella, there really isn't any challenge that happens in the other generations. I wanted to make the generations challenging while sticking as close as I could to the source material. (Also I wanted it to be more gender neutral.)
But what about [Enter name here]?!
Let me know what you want to see and I'll try to come up with a generation for them!
Why isn't my favorite princess a main generation?!
I really really tried to make a full generation for each princess, but it was really hard to come up with a full list for each. So, as a compromise I created the optional generations so the princesses could still be included in some way.
Why are the optional generations shorter?
I had a really hard time coming up with a complete list for the optionals. So I tried to do at least three for each, even though many of them fell into the trap of “marry x, have kids” blehs. If I get more ideas, or if anyone has any suggestions, I'd be happy to add to them.
But I don't want to do X/Y/Z thing!
Well, you don't -have- to. It's just for fun!
Is this playtested?
Yes! I tried my best to make all the generations challenging but not impossible.
What about future packs/expansions?
I'll try to incorporate them if they fit into a generation or would work for one not added.
Several people have posted their own ideas for challenges or additions in the comments. I highly recommend you check them out!
I hope you enjoy it! ^^
Do you think the optional generations could be played as siblings since they don't have children requirements
I hope you enjoy it! And yeah, I think the optionals being siblings is a good idea.
I looked it up, you are totally right. Megara is a princess in Greek mythology. I don't know if she is in the Disney movie? I suppose she could be an optional, though I'm not sure what rules to use with her.
You don't have to follow everything exactly if you don't want to. You can take the rules or order as just guidelines instead and play the way you like.
> You don't have to follow everything exactly if you don't want to. You can take the rules or order as just guidelines instead and play the way you like. :)
Thank you! i wanted to ask for permission since, ya know it was yours. Im a new simmer, i just bought the sims 4 yesterday off of Amazon and its not gonna be here til jun! :( so i was wondering if you had any tips for me (wow this is so random)
Welcome to The Sims! I absolutely love this game and I hope you do too! Tips? Hmm, just enjoy yourself! The Sims is great because you can play however you want to and create the world your own way. Nothing you can do is the wrong way, it's just personal preference.
Thanks so much!
So in regards to this, I think I'm going to switch up the Moana generation for Eco Lifestyle.
Added Megara as an optional generation.
Changed Moana generation to use Eco Lifestyle.
Added Vanellope as an optional generation.
I hope you have fun with it!
Year Long Community Challenge
> I think it optional. Start as a toddler with the faeries or as a teenager
Okay, thank you :)
Hm, you could after Tiana go to Sleeping Beauty like the original and just continue from there following my order, just skipping over Tiana when you get there since you already did it.
Yes, like Shadami said it's an optional challenge. You can start as a toddler or teenager, however your story goes.
