I still have one going right now, i don't know about everyone else. But it think it's a pretty timeless challenge, it really doesn't matter that they haven't updated the site since 2008, it's not like they have to add more expansions really.

My legacy's been going on for about a year now. It's always nice to go back to when I get bored of doing random challenges and creating families I loose attachment to. I can pick back up in my legacy and be lost in it for months on end and play no where else. I don't even play for points, I just like the whole aspect of the challenge and the attempt at trying to create a long-standing legacy beginning with just one single sim.

I'm going to keep my founder alive with the elixir so he can see the birth of the 10th generation. The other heirs won't be so lucky, though...

Default Single Parent Legacy Challenge
Hi everybody! This is my first time posting a challenge so I'm very sorry if it is very bad.
Okay... So this challenge is played kind of like the legacy challenge (www.legacychallenge.com) with a twist or two. You may want to read through the legacy challenge first, seeing as most of the rules are the same

The Rules
The biggest difference in this challenge is that when your heiress (or the woman who marries the heir) becomes pregnant, you must kill off or divorce the husband. Other than that, this challenge is played exactly like the legacy challenge. Your goal is to get through ten generations like this.

NOTE: you could always do this opposite and make the father figure be the sole caretaker after the baby is born.

Scoring
•+1 for each generation in which the husband is divorced or killed off.
•+1 for each generation born
•+2 for each generation that has more than one child (twins do counts two children)
•+1 for each lifetime want fulfilled
•+1 for every heir or heiress that maxes all skills
•+1 for each platinum grave that remains on the legacy lot.
•+10 if you manage to complete this challenge and remain sane. (I am really bad at legacies so if you can finish one I am very impressed.)

Good Luck! I'm really sorry if this is really terrible, but this is my first try so please give me some feedback. Look it's a llama!

Did you click on the "Impatient" link? That brings it right up.

Or go to http://web.archive.org/index.jsp, type "http://legacychallenge.com" in the box, and click Latest.

Oh, I would never follow these rules so strictly... there's too many rules. I am playing a "legacy", but I guess I can not call it a real legacy because I don't really count points.

But I play it completely without cheats, (except getting dogs pregnant because it never works the normal way) and if something bad happens, I never quit without saving. So it's extra exciting, because one time I nearly lost the whole legacy due to a big fire. Both children in generation 3 and the mother were about to die! Now I'm on generation 7 and if I would lose it now... I would probably not save. Now I'm determined to reach gen 10! xP

I actually have mods that make the game harder, like, faster disease progression. Before I installed that, no one ever died of disease. Now it happens once in a while ...

I think there is something wrong with how genetics work in my game, because I just recently got my first blond child after trying for 7 generations. The legacy started with a black haired and pale woman, and every generation, the heiress have been a pale, black-haired woman and the partner has always been a blond man. But for generation 6, I changed it to a man, and he married a blond woman with medium skin, and now for the first time, a blond child with medium skin was born. Seems like the mother has the dominant genes for some reason. And the siblings are always identical, the sons are always the male versions of the daughters, I can tell. So I think something is not right here.

Don't worry about the identical sims; just roll the pacifier.

A punnett square will help solve your issue of genetics.
Let's call an allele for black hair B, and an allele for blond hair b.
The man had the genes for Dominant black hair thanks to his mother (Bb), but he also had the genes for recessive blond hair, thanks to his father (bb). He ended up with black hair, so but he still had to have an allele for blond hair because that's all his father can contribute. This man is heterozygous black haired (Bb).
The wife is homozygously blond (bb).
Put a heterozygous black haired man (Bb) with a homozygous blond woman (bb) on a punnett square, and the probabilities shown are that half of the children will be black haired, and half of the children will be blond haired.

I'm a young adult in poor health, trying to heal enough to complete my goals.

Thank you SOOOOOOOOOOO much for telling me about the Firstborn syndrome and the solution to it!! I had no idea! You're the best! That explains everything.

Yes, I know how genetics work, that's why I was surprised it didn't seem to work properly in the game. It seemed to me as the mother had the dominant genes no matter what, because the child always ended up having the skintone and hair of the mother.

I have played this MANY times, but yet never have I finished all of it or played by the rules. This time I am going to follow all of the rules (except for the rules that don't allow mods) and finish it (go past gen. 10). Wish me luck!
