Zodiac Legacy Challenge

A New 'Sims 4' Challenge

By Paige GuffeyPublished 6 years ago 5 min read

This is a new Sims 4 challenge that I have been working on and am going to be testing soon. I haven’t seen any other legacy challenges like this, so I apologize if there is one, I created this on my own.

CAS Rules:

  1. Sex, gender, ethnicity do not matter
  2. There are no specifics on hair or any clothing
  3. Create your founder as you see fit

Other Rules

  1. No cheats, except for bb.moveobjects for design purposes. The objective is to play the game as vanilla as possible
  2. You can choose any of your children to be the heir to your legacy except for Generation 3, in which the youngest child will become heir.
  3. You do not have to stay on the same lot throughout this challenge, you can move as you see fit.

Generation 1: Taurus

Growing up your mother/father made sure that you had everything you need. You’ve learned that good things come to those who wait, or at least to those who strive for their goals. You love to travel, and your passion is in photography. You want to capture all of life’s beautiful moments.

This generation can either begin with the money earned from the Founder or you can give the generation 20,000 to begin with. There are no house restrictions from this point out. Every generation to follow will have the option to carry on whatever fortune the previous generation acquired or start with 20,000.
