The Fantasy Legacy #68 – Pool Protection & Garden Prep

It just occurred to me that the hot tub was constantly breaking because it was getting struck by lightning, so I decided to put a roof over the pool and hot tub. Hopefully that fixes the problem. It’s also high time that this family has a garden. Let’s get to work on that!

The Fantasy Legacy #67 – Trying for Baby #2

Now that Kelsier is close to becoming a child, it’s time for H’aanit and Imane to start trying for the second baby. We won’t be stopping there though. Especially with Imane’s Big Happy Family aspiration.

The Fantasy Legacy #66 – Two New Elders

Morrigan and Amren are both becoming elders today. I can’t believe we’re already at this point in the challenge. Weren’t they just born?

The Fantasy Legacy 65 – Moving Things Around

First off – I apologize for the quality of this video. I updated OBS (the software I use to record) and somehow all of my settings got messed up and I didn’t notice until after I finished recording.

I was tired of Morrigan being all the way on the back of the lot when she recorded her videos so I did another minor house update!

The Fantasy Legacy #63 – H’aanit’s Hospital Gown

For some reason H’aanit has not wanted to change out of her hospital gown. Maybe it’s really comfortable? Maybe she likes the cool breeze on her exposed backside?

Introducing The Legacy Challenge Lite!

If you’ve been around for a while, you may have heard me mention that Pinstar and I have been wanting to make a “Lite” version of the Legacy Challenge for people that want to get to 10 Generations with no cheats, but not have to worry about keeping score.

We finally had a chance to write something up and the Legacy Challenge Lite is now available for you to use in your own games. The best part about this is, if you already have a Legacy Challenge going you can easily switch over to the Lite version from the original version without needing to restart.

The rules for The Legacy Challenge Lite can be found here. It’s still very similar to the original Legacy Challenge, but some rules have been altered and scoring has been removed completely.

Enjoy!

Legacy Challenge Rules & Scoring Overhaul

It’s been a while since Pinstar and I had a chance to go over the rules and scoring of the Sims 4 Legacy Challenge with a fine-toothed comb, but we finally had a chance to do just that this past weekend.

We had been receiving many comments and DMs that the scoring as it was previously was far too difficult to keep up with now that there are so many new packs in the game. So we decided to take a look at what we had and update the scoring section of the challenge accordingly. Many of the scoring requirements have been drastically reduced to allow players to be able to enjoy the game without stressing over whether or not they are hosting enough parties or maxing enough skills. You can see all of the changes on the scoring page. The scoring sections that changed were as follows:

  • Family: Unchanged
  • Creative: Unchanged
  • Fortune: Unchanged
  • Love: The 10th point is no longer earned by completing both love aspirations in one lifetime. You will earn the 10th point by earning a set number of unique traits.
  • Athletic: Changed to 1 point for every 4 aspirations completed. The 10th point is earned by getting every unique aspiration in the game. (Toddler & Child included)
  • Nature: Unchanged
  • Food: Unchanged
  • Popularity: Changed to 1 point for every 9 medal points earned. 10th point requirement remains the same.
  • Deviance: Changed to 1 point for every 2 saved potions of youth.

As for the gameplay rule updates, the biggest changes here are that you will no longer be required to buy objects (Knight of the Octagon Table, etc) to get your Sim’s money down. You can just use the money cheat to change it to either §1800 for a regular start or §0 for an extreme start. You can also start on any 50 x 50 or 64 x 64 lot that you wish.

The other change to gameplay isn’t really a change, so much as it is an update on how we plan to go forward with this challenge. Pinstar and I have decided that updating the challenge for every single pack/expansion is making the challenge far too unwieldy. So we have decided to stop updating it after Seasons. You are more than welcome to use any and all future packs in your Legacy families as you wish. Those packs will not affect your overall score and can just be for fun.

We will continue to add new aspirations and traits to the random trait generators as needed.

Finally. We have a “new” Legacy Challenge in the works. The rules should be finalized for that by tomorrow. It will be announced once it’s ready!

The Fantasy Legacy #62 – Upgrades

With all of the money the family is swimming in at the moment, I thought it would be a good time to start upgrading some furniture and rooms as well as adding a few other items. The reason for this is twofold. One, I can burn some on-hand cash and two, I can help accomplish Amren’s aspiration.

Trait Generators Updated for Strangerville (& other updates)

Hello everyone! Sorry for the delay in getting these updates out for the Strangerville release. We’ve been super busy over here.

The Random Trait Generators have been updated to include the new trait (only the one that can be selected in CAS, not the others obtained by playing the game) and aspiration.

As always if you do not own this pack, you can simply reroll to get a new trait/aspiration if you need to.

Furthermore, we do not currently have any plans to update the rules in any way for Strangerville (beyond adding the trait/aspiration to the generators) as we do not currently own the pack and therefore can’t playtest anything. This may change if/when we decide to get the pack, but I am not sure this pack really lends itself to Legacy gameplay. We’ll see!

Finally, I know several of you have been asking if we are planning to do a rule/scoring overhaul as a lot of the point requirements are extremely difficult (some almost impossible) to obtain with all of the new packs added. And the answer is YES, we do still plan to update this, we just haven’t had the time lately. We are going to try our best to do that this coming weekend!

Stay tuned for those updates!
