Sims 4 Updates and the Legacy Challenge

Hello everyone! It’s been a while since we’ve given you an update regarding the changes to the Sims 4 and how they will affect the Legacy Challenge.

To be completely honest, we are a bit behind on The Sims 4 at the moment. We haven’t purchased Island Living and don’t really plan to, so it’s taken us a while to figure out what exactly we need to update since we don’t have the game to playtest.

First off, you may absolutely use the new CAS story mode to make your founder, but you do not have to. This is up to your own individual preferences.

Secondly, if you’d like to increase the difficulty of your challenge you can use the new “Off the grid” lot trait. We are not adding any official rules for this, but if you want to make your own challenge more difficult, then go for it.

You may also allow your Sims to get odd jobs, but this will have no affect on the challenge itself.

Finally, we are not updating the challenge for Island Living. We made a decision a while back that we will not be updating the challenge for further expansion packs. To be honest, we don’t really play The Sims 4 anymore and haven’t been buying the packs. You are more than welcome to use the new additions from any future packs in your challenge, there will just not be any new points for them.

The Sims 4 Legacy Challenge Let’s Play 76 – Gardening Frenzy

H’aanit is doing lots of gardening in order to meet the criteria for her job, but also because she seems to be enjoying it. I imagine it’s a nice little break from the hecticness of having 3 boys.

Updates for Island Living

Now that The Sims 4 Island Living * has been released there are some updates to the Legacy Challenge that I wanted to mention.

First off, the Random Trait Generator has been updated to include the two new traits (Child of the Islands and Child of the Ocean). As always if you do not have a particular expansion pack and roll one of its traits, simply roll again.

We are NOT adding the new Aspiration (Beach Life) to the trait generator as it is a location based aspiration and will not work with the Legacy rules.

The new “Off the Grid” lot trait can be used as you see fit just like all other lot traits. This one might add a fun layer of difficulty to the Legacy Challenge that we haven’t seen before. We are not, however, making any official rules for it at this time.

Finally, several of you have been asking if you can use the new in-game trait/aspiration generator for the Legacy Challenge and the answer is yes. However, keep in mind that our trait generator factors in the traits of the parents when randomizing the traits. I don’t believe (though I could be wrong) that the game’s version will do that. We will leave it up to you on which one you want to use. Our trait generator will remain active and updated for each new pack. For those of you that prefer it.

The Sims 4 Legacy Challenge Let’s Play 73 – Another Thanksgiving

It feels weird celebrating “Thanksgiving” in the beginning of June, but such is life when you’re playing the Sims! I think I need to tweak this holiday a little bit, though.

The Fantasy Legacy #70 – Mentoring Confusion

I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get Morrigan to mentor her family members. I even looked it up online. What am I doing wrong?

The Fantasy Legacy #69 – New Baby & a Birthday

Generation 4 is doing quite well! We have another new baby on the way and Kelsier (our heir) is about to age up into a child. I’m really happy with the progress so far!
