Introducing the Alien Adoption Challenge!

Hello everyone! Pinstar has an all-new Parenthood-centric challenge for you guys to play! The Alien Adoption Challenge! Want to really put your Sim’s parenting skills to the test? This challenge is for you!

You will be starting with an Alien Toddler and will be unable to DIRECTLY control that Alien Sim until they reach Young Adulthood. The only way you can teach them things and meet their needs is by using their parent.

This challenge will require a couple of different packs (not just Parenthood) to work properly. You will need Parenthood, Get to Work, and City Living.

Want to see how to get started with the challenge? Check out Pinstar’s introduction video!

In other news, both the Legacy Challenge and the Wonder Child Challenge have had some minor updates with the release of Parenthood. Changes for the Legacy Rules can be found under the Gameplay and Scoring section! As always, these rule updates are optional and you will not need the pack to continue playing the challenges as you normally would.

New Twitter Account & Other News!

Hello everyone! I hope you’re having a great weekend so far!

I just wanted to let you all know that there is a new Twitter account for the Sims Legacy Challenge website! I had been using my personal Twitter account to Tweet out news related to this website, but for privacy reasons, I have decided to finally make an official Twitter account for the website.

If you have Twitter and wish to keep up to date with all news pertaining to the Sims Legacy Challenge website then follow @Sims_Legacy!

In other news, we are hoping to release our newest Sims 4 Challenge tomorrow! So keep an eye out for that!

Finally, I have decided to bring back Eat Like a Sim recipes (real life recipes based on food found in the Sims games)! I am in the process of transferring the previously written recipes back onto this site from my old video game food blog. Once that is done, expect to see new recipes here!

Legacy Challenge Updates & A New Challenge Coming Soon!

Hi everyone! I just wanted to give you a quick update in regards to what is happening with the Legacy Challenge with the new Parenthood game pack. We will be adding some optional updates to the channel (if you don’t own the pack, you obviously will not need to do anything different). We are still playtesting quite a bit, but hopefully will have the updates soon!

Pinstar also has a NEW challenge for the Parenthood pack in the works. Rules will be posted once he has finished playtesting everything. This challenge will be specific to the Parenthood pack and should be a nice, shorter challenge for those of you that don’t have the time to do a long, Legacy challenge 🙂

Hope you all are having a great week!

Site Issue Updates

So I think I may have figured out part of the issue that we’ve been experiencing with the website lately. If you have been noticing that the site occasionally changes it’s layout suddenly it’s because the theme that I am using is, for whatever reason, trying to use the mobile layout on desktops. Which looks… weird. I am going to fix that by changing to a new site theme/layout over the next few days. Expect the site to look wonky for a bit while I change everything up and prettify it.

The second issue is with the Toddler Trait Generator and sadly, it doesn’t look like it’s an issue on our end (which means we can’t fix it). It would seem that there is a caching issue with the generator where the site will just continually show the first trait that appears. That is why when people are commenting that it doesn’t work, it suddenly works (technology is so strange). So there are a couple of ways to fix this. You can either comment to kickstart it into showing a new trait, you can refresh a few times, or you can clear your browser’s cache (you can simply Google that to find out how to do that for your specific web browser). Sadly, this is the only fix that I have for this particular issue. Maybe my changing to a website theme that has been more recently updated will help, but I doubt it.

I will let you guys know once the site updates have been done!

Site Issues – Trying to Figure them Out

Hi everyone,

We have been having some site issues lately and I am trying to figure out what is going on. The Toddler Trait Generator seems to keep getting stuck on one trait, but it only happens every now and then. I am also noticing that the theme that I have chose for the website constantly changes to one that I didn’t choose which in turn messes up the layout. This only started happening within the last two months and I just don’t know enough about website building to know what is happening.

I am going to ask around and see if I can figure out what is causing the issues. If anyone is well-versed in WordPress and you think you might be able to help feel free to leave me a comment here or send me a tweet on Twitter.

Hopefully we can get this worked out! I just wanted to let you all know that if you are encountering issues with either the Toddler Trait generator or the website in general that we are aware of the issues and are trying to figure out what is going on.

Sorry again for the inconvenience!

Wonder Child and Legacy Challenge Rules Updated for Toddlers & Vampires!

Hey everyone! Just a quick post to let you know that both the Legacy Challenge and the Wonder Child Challenge rules have been updated for Toddlers and vampires!

The Legacy Challenge hasn’t really changed much. You are welcome to make a vampire founder/heirs. Just bear in mind that since they are immortal you will need to figure out what to do with the older generations as the challenge progresses. Toddlers haven’t really changed anything in this challenge aside from adding an additional life stage to play.

As far as the Wonder Child is concerned toddlers added a bunch of new points and bonuses to earn so make sure you read over the rules carefully! You will NOT be able to use vampires in this challenge as that will eliminate the “time crunch” aspect of it.

The Random Trait Generator has been updated to include the new vampire aspirations (though if you decide you don’t want a vampire in your family or you don’t own the pack, you can simply re-roll). Toddlers also have their own Trait Generator for you to use as you need it!

As always, let us know if you have any questions!

The Sims 4 Vampires – Beginning a Vampire Legacy

Hey everyone! We were lucky enough to get an early access/review copy of the upcoming Sims 4 Vampires Pack from EA. I decided that rather than going through all of CAS and build/buy mode (which I know A LOT of other Youtubers can do much better than me) that I would start off a new Legacy Challenge with a Vampire Founder for an all-vampire Legacy Challenge.

Toddler Trait Generator Now Available!

 

PLEASE NOTE – We are encountering an issue where only Angelic is showing up for everyone that uses it. It’s working fine for me, however, so I’m not really sure what the problem is. Trying to figure it out.

We finally have a Toddler Random Trait Generator available for you guys to use in your Legacy Challenges! It’s a bit different from the regular Random Trait Generator as you will not need the parents’ traits to determine what your toddler’s trait is. You can simply head to the Toddler Trait Generator page and it will automatically tell you what your toddler’s trait will be. Simply refresh to get a new trait if you need to get a trait for more than one toddler!

Sorry for the delay! At first we thought we were going to have to update our regular Trait Generator, but then we realized we could easily make a separate one which made it much easier to create. Hope you enjoy!
