Default *NEW* Zodiac Legacy Challenge
Sul sul! This is a legacy challenge in which each generation represents one of the western zodiac signs. So this will be a bit more challenging as you will need to get to 12 generations instead of 10.

Big thanks to the original poster of this challenge autumnalpixels ! As an astrologer, I just really wanted to flesh this challenge out a bit more and add my own twist to it! I also thought it could be a lot more fun with the addition of new packs like Realm of Magic, Eco Lifestyle, Paranormal Stuff, etc.

The original post starts with Aquarius but you’re free to start with whichever zodiac sign you like and go in order from there. I’ll be starting with Aries because we’re the best [ ].

This version of the challenge is also completely base-game friendly! I’ve added in many optional rules for those who do have expansion packs but they are not required to complete each generation.

Basic Rules:
You can start with any zodiac sign but must go in order from there (Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces) So for example, if you started with Leo the next gen would be Virgo and your last gen would be Cancer.
Your heirs can be any gender
You may use the freerealestate cheat to move the founder into any lot but you must start with $1200 and use no further cheats that give you an advantage (ie: money cheats or cheating needs or relationships)
Must play on normal lifespan
All rules that include expansion pack in () are optional

Enjoy! I'll be posting an LP of this on my Youtube channel YT: AstroSimmer so please stop by over there and let me know how you're liking the challenge!

I really like this, and all the requirements are spot-on for the sign. Going to alter Sagittarius slightly for my own purposes, since I don't care for the game's hidden worlds that much. My Sagi sim must always be enrolled in university, even if it's only for one course at a time.
