Default Compton Random Legacy Challenge
I've tried this challenge once before- I think I got to Gen 3 before I lost all my roll data and had to start over.

Though I've had this family since last April, after a lengthy hiatus I finally hit Gen 4! I'll also be using Stormy Gamez's rolls from Gen 5 out, as I already rolled parameters for Gen 4 before I found out about her site.


ROLLS:

GEN 1 | Heir- Monique Compton, Spouse- Amir Compton, Children- Lex (adopted), Kian, Landen (adopted), Amara

A: Couple
B: 4 children
C: Secret Agent (Diamond Agent) (the only normal career I've had this entire time. should've enjoyed it while it lasted hahaha)
D: Career Hopper. I rolled Scientist, Critic- Food Critic, Tech Guru- Start-up Entrepeneur, Tech Guru- eSport Gamer, and Business- Investor
E: Dependable
F: Hands Off! (this suuuuuuuuuucked) (especially with 4 kids)

GEN 2 | Heir- Kian Compton, Spouse- Briana Bheeda, Children- Rez, Lucille (adopted), Jazlyn (adopted), Kristin

A: Mixed Couple
B: 4 children (again??)
C: Scientist (he maxed out on this one too, we went to sixam and everything! it was pretty rad ngl)
D: Career Hopper. (yes, again) I rolled Scientist, Critic- Art Critic, Writer- Author, Athlete- Pro Athlete, and Painter- Master Of The Real
E: Themed Display (for this one I had him do a "People, Places, and Elements" theme. he took a ton of pics until they were perfect and I had him collect MySims figurines, as well as ore element samples from work. I'll have to see if I can find a pic of the end result)
F: Health Nut (this one wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but at least it made the question "what do you want for dinner" a hell of a lot easier hahaha)

GEN 3 | Heir- Kristin Compton, Children- Alexandria (adopted), Ulises, Cats- Pickles, Patches (Cat Offspring- Taco, Bella)

A: Mixed Single
B: 2 children (a reprieve! whew)
C: Retail Owner (uggghhhhh. my least favorite career. I had her selling baked goods from a basic counter that never gave me any real profit. it blew so hard. the last time I did this challenge, I at least had a spouse living with me so I could make ends meet, but in a single? ridiculous)
D: N/A
E: Best Club Ever (here's how I was able to have this generation survive. the club's name was "Every Villain Is Limes". I got them a lil hangout in windenburg and all the perks and whatnot. I'd have them go to the hangout at least once a week, but they spent a lot of time at my house, which happened to have about 7 or 8 easels. made my activities include painting, cooking, cleaning, and fixing things. max creative vibe, max focused vibe. extra skill gains in cooking, baking, and painting. chores were always done, we never spent money on food, and I could sell the paintings for a profit- all while my fearless leader sat back on her lazy trait ass and watched TV. iconic.)
F: Half-Siblings (i rolled mixed anyways, so this was ridiculously easy to accomplish)

GEN 4 | Heir- Ulises Compton, Spouse- Araceli Newby

A: Couple
B: 1 child
C: Restauranteur
D: Freelance Painter
E: Idle Careers (nooooooooooooooo nope nope nope I am not a fan of this sam I am)
F: Vacationer (now that the jungle expansion's out I'm SUPER stoked for this! though I don't think my sims' bank account is on the same page haha)

Naturina, yeah, it really is pretty great xD I like playing with it when I'm bored and just make the family stories on my mind xD like that criminal boss who aparently is a Do-gooder xD

faulflix, welcome! I hope you have a good time with this challenge, and yeah, that gen 1 doesn't look easy xD but at least the older kids will be able to help with the house, that always saves me a little stress on the 100 babies challenge xD

DiAllliStar, wow, it seems you`re not having it easy, really retail owner can be pretty hard, specially on early gens xD I actually rolled that one for my spouse on gen 1 and really...it wasn't great so he ended up as a stay-home dad xD at least he helped a lot with the kids ...I hope things go well with your gen 4! at least freelance painters get a lot of money, and even with idle careers should be ok with the Painter extraordinary aspitation


And on a small update with my family, I finally had time to play a little more and Bruno grew up to toddler, he's adorable! I wasn't expecting the brigth red hair and I definitely don't complain about it xD Also, Anthony's "girlfriend" is now pregnant having the second kid needed for the roll...and the third we didn't need, she's having twin boys xD (checked with MCCC) the thing is, since both of Anthony's parents completed the Bodybouilder aspiration they're not gonna die soon, and with the helpers + the surprise baby they had who just turned adolescent...I only have room for one baby on the family xDD I'm not sure what to do, it would feel weird to let one of the twins with their mother and just taking the other one xD too much Parent trap for me (?

Anyway, since Bruno is a toddler I rolled for his parameters to know which traits give him and all that, so he got...
- Couple
- 2 children (and I really hope having just 2 this time, no surprises!)
- Convencional career - Detective
- Unconvencional career - Freelance musician
. Haunted House
. Mischief managed

this sounds really interesting actually Haunted house was one of the roles I was most excited to try since I don't play a lot with ghost, and it's been a while since I played with the musical aspiration! also, it sounds like Bruno's gonna be a 'bad cop' and I'm loving that idea xD

@everyone I updated the rolls. I'm sorry that I've been so bad about adding Seasons stuff to it. With the whole divorce, I've just been kinda scattered and keep forgetting. I also didn't realize that I won't get pinged when someone mentions me on this thread. Again, messaging me here or on Twitter (StormyDayzGamez) or just commenting on the blog pages like some people have been doing is a lot easier if you have a suggestion. I also added something regarding scouts that someone suggested. Thanks all!

@BigMud Thanks for the suggestion. I added it to misc fun with credit to you.

@Salemsvartulv As far as I know, there aren't any rolls that force the family to continue a goal through the entire legacy. One of the things I've always liked about this challenge is the fact that once we've completed the generational goal or started the next generation it's over. I can add creating a legacy-long holiday as a suggestion to the regular rules page but it feels too overbearing to add it to rolls. Also, if a person was interested in doing such they might go through their entire legacy without ever rolling that even if they really want it. Thanks for the suggestion, I think it's been a long time since anything's been added to the rules and not the rolls!

You start with the starting funds from the game. Good times!

Do NOT get married. You can adopt any or all three of the kids. You can Try for Baby, even with the same partner for all three, but the partner can NOT marry you, and they can not move in. (They have a tendency to invite themselves over to your place and try to help out, but this should be discouraged). I'm pretty sure you can roll for secondary careers for your two helpers - that should help with the income situation.

So after failing my first attempt at this challenge (and miserably I might add), I re-rolled and am having another go at it.

Gen 1 Parameters:
- Mixed couple
- 4 children
- Detective
- Astronaut (Smuggler)
- Idle Careers (I'm not looking forward to this one, tbh...)
- Random!

I've also decided to start on an empty lot and build my house from there. Because starting in a pre-built lot the first time around really messed me up and was not helpful in the least! I'll post an update once I've gotten further along into the challenge. C:

Yikes idle careers for the first gen? Good luck with that! The first time I did this legacy I used a pre-built house. The second time I basically built the shell of the house and slowly added things as they got the money for them. That made it sooo much easier. Especially since my helper could only play guitar for tips. Detective should be fun and will give you a break from the 4 kids!

I'm excited to say that I'm finally picking back up where I left off on my legacy! I'm technically in gen 3 but you know how it is with this challenge... I'm already starting gen 4.

Edited to remove the previous comment since I found a solution but I'd still like to know if anyone has noticed any rolls that could use a rework or better explanation.

I was also wondering what you think about increasing household size for a pet? I realized that my sims have a cat and there won't be room for them to keep her with the rolls for the next generation! Single+3 helpers+2 kids... and the helpers and heir from gen 3 will just be aging to elder! So I thought I might use MCCC to make a slot for the cat and then once the elders pass on I can bump it back down to eight? In both Sims 2 and 3 there were separate slots for pets. When I made the rule that you can have a pet if you have the room it didn't occur to me that you might not have room in the next gen!

And lastly, I had an idea for a generational roll that might be fun. I've been playing a lot of Sims 3 lately and I love the festivals. What if the goal was to have a lot (or lots) with the different seasonal activities that the family has to visit? The problem is, since I've not played much with Seasons, I'm not sure what those activities could be. I thought maybe snowman building contests, snowball fights, mud fights, skating, swimming, playing in the sprinkler, building a neighborhood garden for spring... anyway if you think of something let me know. I don't want to add it until I have a fairly good list of suggestions for activities for their "festivals."

If you're bored and want to catch up to where I am... Random Legacy II :D

So this is my first time playing a challenge of any kind, particularly a legacy one and I am haunting the rules trying to make sure I'm not accidentally breaking any. Playing Sims 4 was boring and I kept restarting and playing the same careers and traits over and over again, so hopefully this helps bring some fun back.

First Generation
Mixed Single w/Help
3 Children
Heir - Unconventional Career - Freelance Author
Helper - Convenional Career - Entertainer (Comedian)
Gen Goal: Idle Careers
Fun: Perfect Attendance

Heir: Diana Sutherland (YA)
Helper: Fernanda Cochran (Elder)

I randomized the names a few time until I found some I liked. I already have one child -- Ainsley who is almost done her toddler stage. Idle Careers is a tough one -- Fernanda is stuck at the second level because she never has the whim to practice guitars and I didn't pick a musical aspiration. I did pick the Author aspiration for Diana so that's a bit easier since I'm allowed to fulfill her aspiration goals.

Ugh, yes. The main issue I've found with Idle Careers is that I can't actively participate in my heir's Detective career... So it's making it a bit difficult. I'm doing just enough to ensure she doesn't get fired. xD

As for the housing, that's what I've wound up doing - built a small house I can add onto as time goes on. It's made the game SO MUCH EASIER than using a pre-built home!

Default The Sims 4 Random Legacy Challenge
Hello Friends!

I am new to all challenges but I am excited to try something new. Here are my rolls

First Generation:
Marital Status - Single
Number of Children - 2
Primary Career - Unconventional Retail Owner
Secondary Career - Conventional Tech Guru
Generation Goal - Idle Careers
Fun - My Precious
Aspiration - Knowledge
Heir - Matriarchy / Foster / Random

Let me know if I am doing it correctly, lol! My plan is to create a female sim, she will have the knowledge aspiration aligned with the tech guru career and on the side she'll open up a bakery? (When/if funds become available?) For the children - i may adopt one and have one natural but that is undecided at this point. .. maybe ill roll to decide xD

I look forward to starting this and i appreciate any feed back

Edit: Actually, I just reread the rules - secondary career does not apply, so never mind! So no tech guru career or aspiration - that makes it a little easier, I think!

Wow! 3 of you in a row with idle careers? Yikes. I'm afraid to say that I've never had that one and jinx myself. Although, I've already rolled the next two generations.

My main issue now is money. I put them in a way too big house forgetting how difficult it is to get money in this challenge and am in the process of moving them to a smaller one now. It's so hard having a small house in this challenge since I almost always end up with a full house! I also decided to do the Jungle Adventurer aspiration on the side next gen but of course, since she didn't roll that as her career I can't sell one thing! My plan has been to make some sort of treasure room and delete the rest but I'm now worried about how much higher the bills will be with all of that stuff lying around!

The good thing is that I'll only have 2 kids this next generation. Although, there's 5 the gen after that.
