Challenge Rules

Get to Work Challenge Rules Mega-Update

Welcome back portraits. You have been missed.

Welcome back portraits. You have been missed.

I am updating ALL of my challenges with the new gameplay additions introduced with The Sims 4 Get to Work. If you are playing these challenges and have NOT bought Get to Work, simply continue under the older rules.

The Legacy Challenge

(Want to see some of these new changes in action? Check out my wife’s stream of her new Legacy family today at 2pm EST on her Twitch channel!)

  • Added a new Succession Law Category, “Species”, with the following options “Xenoarchy (Heirs must alternate between human and alien) , Xenophobic (Heirs cannot be a different species from the founder)  Brood (Heirs must be carried in a pregnancy by the previous heir, regardless of the heir’s gender), and Tolerant (The species of the child has no impact on their eligibility for heir status). Legacy families in progress may pick one of these to begin following them. (Even if past generations didn’t follow the rule)
  • The founder is allowed to be an alien at start and alien spouses are allowed under normal spouse rules. If a Male Heir is abducted and has an alien baby, that baby may be eligible to be heir (depending on your succession laws).
  • Funds from owned businesses count toward family net worth for the purposes of the fortune score.
  • If your family owns a business the 10th point of fortune (Needing 5.7 million) can been replaced with “Buy every business perk for a Legacy Family Owned Business”. This can be skipped if you do not have your family own a business.
  • Memorializing a Sim via painting is no longer done with a realism painting, but rather a “Paint from reference” portrait. Even though “Paint from reference” unlocks at skill level 3, you need to have it done by a 8+ skill painter for it to count.
  • You may memorialize a Sim with a photograph taken by a Sim with a 5 photography skill.
  • You are allowed to follow Sims to their jobs if taking the new Doctor, Detective, or Scientist careers. Since these careers do not branch, having a sim reach the top level will satisfy the ‘both branches’ requirement in the Nature category.
  • Baking the highest level baking dish can be done in lieu of gourmet cooking to satisfy the ‘Highest Quality version of Baked Alaska’ point.
  • A single Sim must now max Baking in addition to Cooking, Gourmet Cooking, and Mixiology to earn that point.
  • Reduced the required death types from 11 to 10. The 11th “Death by rocket ship crash” is now the same as death by fire.
