Default The Sims 3 -- Boxed Legacy Challenge
The Sims 3 -- Boxed Legacy Challenge

This challenge is based off of “The Sims 4 Captive Challenge: The Room of Monuments” by Diversion over on the TS4 Challenge forum. Check it out here!:

The Concept: Your founder starts on an empty lot inside a 1x1 box, and is only allowed to increase it a few squares at a time by completing several challenges. Your legacy family must live inside this ‘house’ for all ten generations.


Create one Teen, YA or Adult sim in CAS, preferably human, and plop them down anywhere in town. A bigger sized lot is recommended.

Your household must start with 1,000 simoleons, and you are not allowed to keep the funds from selling the Future Portal, University Welcome Kit, or the Camera. You may keep the items themselves if you wish.

Build a 1x1 walled square on the lot and place your sim inside.


The challenge ends after the Generation 10 heir becomes a young adult.

No cheats or mods (extra money, faster skillbuilding, etc.) that make the game easier.

You may not expand your house except for when you complete challenges. Decorative things (wall paint, floor tiles, etc.,) and everything in Buy Mode is fair game.

You are not required to follow the traditional Legacy Challenge rules. Whether you want to or not is up to you.


For every challenge completed, add the number of squares specified on the list adjacent to the one(s) already placed. You can only complete each challenge ONCE unless specified otherwise. Any of the sims in your active household may complete them.

(This list is nowhere near finished: I’ll add more goals as I come up with them. Feel free to leave a reply with any suggestions you may have!)
