No, I have never done a Legacy before, as I'm sure will become obvious lol.
There are some things I'll have as more my own rules, or twists, or that I will adhere to.
Here it is:
Alphabet Legacy Challenge
26 generations, each gen names going from A to Z
(gen 1 A, gen 2 B, ect.)
Each gen is colors of rainbow
(gen 1 red, gen 2 orange, 3 yellow, 4 green, 5 blue, 6 purple, 7 begin repeat)
(pink in red gen only, teal only in blue, ect.)
(white, black, brown, grey, colors that aren't colors, are the only allowed secondary colors)
(i.e. can't have a green gen use purple as secondary color)
Personal Legacy Challenge Rules
Only one child per generation.
(Each gen only has one kid)
(4 generations max in a household) (because I don't use a heck of a lot of mods)
Household must remain intact.
(Aside from college, family members can not move out. Born together and die together)
No saving from death.
(Sorry, you die and your done for)
(If no heir is present because of an untimely death, another heir may be born)
(No extra money, only exception being a wrongful loss (meaning a customer walked out of a store without paying, NOT a chance card loss or fire damage, ect.))
(No sim editing. (no 'skill up one', or 'charisma max'))
(because of N.R.A. (down 2 rules) 'cycle through wants' to find something not previously used is allowed (refer to legacy tracker))
(Aspiration rewards are not considered cheating, so a Simvac could be used. But, really? You can't pick up a book?)
(I did have one cheat exception but I downloaded a mod so actually cheating wouldn't be necessary)
No supernatural sims in the legacy bloodline.
No Repeating Aspirations
(i.e. if anyone in the family has ever wanted to be the top of the dance career, it can't be what the new kid wants)
(only exception is when(if) all lifetime goals have been done. Rinse and repeat)
A sim called only The Keeper will be the sim to call when a family member dies. The Keeper will come, you give him the headstone/urn, and he takes it home to his cemetary. He is the keeper of souls, sims, bodies. The undertaker, ZHAO THE MOONSLAYER-- alright you get it.
(update) After setting The Keeper up the way I wanted him, he ended up with an 'assisstant' named Minder. (Min-der) will actually be the one who retrieves the urns/headstones.
