copied from the BBS here:,root.1,item.41,item.23&threadID=03a73f5d0386f69343b5e4b7e2aae942&directoryID=25&startRow=1#d33158125d37bff57ee4492886808527

The challenge: Make a family the strongest it can be over 10 generations.

The Rules: Start with a single adult sim made with the create-a-sim or bodyshop, male or female. Pick any aspiration. Assign personality points as you want.

Start the family on an empty 5X5 Lot.

When you marry or move sims in, you may only marry or move in townies or NPCs.

Children may move out if you want but you must keep at least one child in the home to continue the legacy.

When children grow into teenager and you are asked to pick an aspiration, roll a six sided dice
2: Knowledge
3: Family
4: Romance
5: Popularity
6: Pick one yourself

This is to give some challenges and variety as you play through the generations.

The 10th generation child must be able to trace family back up to the original sim by blood.

You may NOT turn ageing off
You may use the elixir of life, but use caution, as you may suffer the jump bug.
You may NOT use any kinds of cheats or mood trainers.

No reloading after bad events (bad chance cards or accidental deaths)
Restarting after a bad bug or a glitch IS allowed. Just as useing the move_objects cheat is allowed for bugged objects.

Should you be unfortunate enough to have your entire lot bugged, starting the entire challege over again is okay. I would reccomend uploading your legacy lots to the sims 2, so if a horrid bug or glitch forces you to start over again, you can just download your own lot and start again from there. I'm uploading my family once per generation just in case.

At the end of the challenge (10 generations or after the family line is broken) score your family on the following terms.

1. 1 point for each generation reached (max 10)
2. 1 point for each $100,000 in net worth the family has (round your current net worth up)
3. Gold or below deaths no longer give you grave points.
4. 1 point for each PLATINUM grave on the lot
5. 1/3 point for each family friend the family has at the end. (round spare 1/3s down)
6. 1 point everytime a sim fulfills an 'impossible' want (a want scoreing 30,000 points or more, limit one per sim per want. There are other wants that also count for this, like "have 10 children" I'll try to post a complete list of them soon.)
7. -1 point every time a household member drops into asperational failure, requireing a visit from the sim shrink.
8. -2 points for every inter-bred birth in the family.

Special Bonuses.
1. 2 points if all 10 career reward objects are on the lot
2. 1 point for each different type of NPC you marry over the whole legacy.
3. 1 point for each different color ghost you have on the lot at the end.
4. -2 points for each visitor that dies on your lot.
5. 1 point for each alien born on the lot (1st generation aliens only, children of aliens don't count, unless it's by abduction)
6. 2 points if the birth that brings in the last generation is twins.
7. 2 points if you can get two social bunnies to have romantic interactions on the lot

Of course there is NO way for anyone to enforce the rules or scoring, so the whole contest is on the honor system. I'm just putting this contest out here as a fun challenge among simmers, not an "I'm better than you" ego-fest. I look foreward to seeing everyone's scores while I start cracking on my own Legacy family. Good Luck!

If you peruse this thread a little further, there are a few ammended rules and bonus points. I am doing this in a completely empty neighborhood so I won't be tempted to cheat. (ie, marry someone other than townie or npc)

I am only on my second generation (thanks to the jump bug fix, I have been playing my alpha sims hehe)

there is also a "scoreboard" thread. I found this to be fun and sparked my interest in playing again after giving up for a while because of the jump bug.

Have fun!
