I keep telling @Skeilah
I'm gonna start a legacy challenge. So I started a legacy challenge
I decided to use @alexis3142
's MySims Legacy Challenge
. I'm hoping it will have just the right amount of guidance and goals yet also freedom to create my own story that I'll stay motived each generation. I am also using @Skeilah
's own version of this challenge
as inspiration as well.
Some background info and rambling
I decided to use one of the first sims I ever created, Rose Douglas, as the founder of this legacy. I typically play without aging, so Rose and her family have been relatively unchanged since I created them in 2017, but I've always wanted to see Rose's future generations grow and flourish, so I though it might be nice to use her to motivate myself to play my first real legacy.
I have not decided the ultimate order that I'm doing each MySim generation in, but I am going to start with Goth Boy for Rose, since that generation focuses on painting, which is Rose's favorite hobby. For this challenge, I used MCCC to reset all her aspirations and cheated her painting skill down to zero, so she will be ready to complete her generational goals
I borrowed these from @Skeilah
though edited them to fit my own personal challenge and gameplay style.
- I'm going to play the whole Challenge (= 20 generations).
- Gameplay with the new generation begins once all generation goals are completed.
- Complete the MySims trophies Collection at the end of Generation 20
- The heir of each generation will be the oldest child born or adopted in the previous generation.
- Lifespan - Long (though I may switch to Normal once I get a better feel for how long generational goals are taking)
- No restarting after bad events.
- No cheating needs for each current heir, though I may cheat needs for family members just because who has time for all that lol
I will work out the order of the generations soon! I also may add more rules or tweak some things as I get in the groove of playing. I'm also not sure how often I'll post or how long my posts will be, but I should figure that out soon, I hope
Meet Rose Douglas
Rose is a young adult with the traits associated with the Goth Boy generation - loner, creative, and gloomy. Her aspiration is Painter Extraordinaire, and her career is Freelance Artist. She lives with her wife, two daughters, and pets in Willow Creek on a lot I've named Dogwood Hideaway.
Goth Boy Generation Description:
This generation is based on the MySims, “Goth Boy” His description is “Meet Goth Boy! Nothing makes him feel warmer than wrapping himself in a cloak of emotional darkness. He loves writing bad poetry and hates his job at Turkey-on-a-Fork. Wait a second...is "Goth" even still a thing?”
Master the Freelance Artist Career and complete the Painter Extraordinaire Aspiration
(Optional University Addition: Attend University and receive the Fine Arts Degree)
Traits: Loner, Gloomy, Creative

Meet Rose's family - her wife, Carrie (adult), and her daughters, Beatrix (child) and Isla (toddler). I don't have a good picture of their dog (Maeby) and cat (Juniper) who are based off my real life pets, but they will make an appearance soon I'm sure
Here is their home. It was originally a gallery find that I've edited over the years as I've acquired new packs. It's kind of a hot mess of a house, if I'm being honest, but it's homey and eclectic.
