Just a quick update. I don't know if anyone is still doing this challenge, but since my Sim is a single mom, I thought I'd explain an issue with "baby daddies." I'm sure it's probably the same way with mothers. Anyway, the child's father will show up unannounced and won't leave. He came over 24 hours ago in Sim time and stayed overnight and even slept in my Sim's bed (WTF)! What I did was choose my Sim and tell her to "Ask to just be friends." It worked and now I could tell him goodbye. I think that's slightly annoying, though. The whole point of being a single parent in the game is to not have the other parent come over when they damn well please. This also works in case you don't want to kill them or lock your front door (which I didn't want to do).

EDIT (5/12/18): So that didn't work. I was just reading that it's a bug that has to do with toddlers being able to ask a certain parent to be a caregiver. I think this came with the Parenthood pack, so if you don't have it, it probably won't be a problem. I was reading that it doesn't happen with children. I will just wait for Collin to age up and see what happens. I will post another update then.

EDIT (5/12/18): Collin aged up and the father isn't coming around anymore, so that's what it was. Also, Morgan had her second child and it was a boy named Curtis. Just 3 more! Yay!

EDIT (5/13/18): Morgan just gave birth to her third child, a girl, named Lilliana.

EDIT (5/16/18): Morgan just had her fourth child, a boy, named Austin. Collin is a teenager and he's pretty responsible, but disgusting. Lol. Curtis is a child with 5 days before he becomes a teen. He's an angel, really. Likes to clean up around the house and do his homework. Lilliana is a child with 9 days left of the child stage. Just one more baby to go! And this is hard! With Collin being a slob, the shower leaks every time he takes one, and the kids or the mother are constantly cleaning up after him. Plus, having this many Sims in the household, with ONE bathroom, everything freaking breaks!

EDIT (5/17/18): Morgan had her fifth and final child, a boy, named Andrew. Collin is 2 days from becoming a young adult, Curtis is aging up to a teen today, Lilliana has 4 days until she’s a teen, and Austin is a toddler. I think he has 4 or 5 days before he ages up. Also, I haven’t killed anyone yet.

Last night, I finished the goals of Generation 1. I can't tell you how hard it was to kill Sims. I was trying to kill townies, and I think some of them end up with a weird hidden trait to prevent them from dying. Took me a long time. I ended up moving one of the Sims I was trying to kill in a house next door. Then I invited her back over and drowned her. Also, I set fire to the basement on accident (using a firework) and killed my two youngest children. The older one, Austin, I was able to plead with the Grim Reaper to bring him back, but the youngest, Andrew, didn't make it. Sad times. Also, Morgan managed to become enemies with Don Lothario and he was over there when that happened, so he died too. It's funny how long it took me to do this, and I ended up killing them all at exactly the same time. I also moved Curtis out into an apartment after he aged up because that was his aspiration.

Now I'm starting Generation 2. Collin is already halfway through the young adult stage and I haven't found him a partner yet. Blame the Haunted House goal in Generation 1. And he has to kill 3 Sims as well in his generation. Fun. I think I will just allow Morgan to die peacefully in the house she started her legacy. She's about halfway through the adult stage now. Lilliana will age up to a young adult in a few days and I have to figure out what I will do with her. She seems like she would turn to a life of crime. Austin will age up into a teenager in a couple days as well.

Last night, Lilliana aged up into a young adult and I moved her into the Goth's house. I forgot to get her a job. I actually forgot to do that with Curtis as well. I was able to find Collin a partner. Can't remember her name. I will check later. She's a bit older so it's going to be harder for her to get pregnant. They've already tried once, but no luck. We'll see I guess. Austin is now a teenager. He's the only one in the house that doesn't really have any negative traits. He is a loner, but I don't consider that a bad thing. I'll update when Collin's girlfriend gets pregnant. I'm not going to have them get married, as it wouldn't make much sense. Collin is noncommittal like his mother. I will probably make him have an affair later on.

EDIT (5/24/18): I was finally able to get Collin's girlfriend pregnant. Her name is Chana Chetan. They had a boy, Nathaniel. Only child we're having, so I can focus on the Haunted House goal. Collin is about to hit the adult stage. Austin has a little under a week before he becomes a young adult. Also, Collin completed his Computer Whiz aspiration, and he's at level 7 of his career, so not too much to go. When Nathaniel becomes a toddler, I will roll for Generation 3 goals.

Nathaniel just aged up to a toddler. Collin is about to age up into an adult. I'm going to roll for Generation 3 goals.

1. Marital Status (Single) - Your heir may not have a live-in partner after the first child is born. Any extra sims must be moved out of the house by 24 hours after the first child is born. A male heir may move in a female partner for the course of any pregnancies, but the 24 hour rule applies and she may not contribute financially. Partners that have moved out are not allowed to lurk around the house to help out with toddler care, and must be removed if they will not leave.
2. Number of Children - 1
3. Primary Career (Conventional Career) - Painter (Patron of the Arts) - May sell crafted paintings and call agent to collect money.
4. Generational Goals (Idle Careers) - May not make an effort to advance in your heir's, helper's and spouse's careers, including school. If the career goals happen to line up with aspirational goals, that's a happy coincidence, because you may advance in aspiration freely. Autonomous actions are also acceptable. If you've rolled an unconventional career that has no tasks that sims will perform autonomously, you may only perform tasks for it if your sim has a whim to do it or if they do them autonomously.
5. Miscellaneous Fun (Moody) - Once a week, your heir and spouse (if applicable) must spend at least 3 consecutive hours in a certain mood, randomly chosen from the following list: inspired, happy, angry, embarrassed, playful, flirty, sad, bored, dazed, confident, focused, tense, uncomfortable. Heir and spouse may have different required moods.

Well, this may be proven to be difficult. I don't know. At least Nathaniel will be a Painter. It might actually help with the Moody goal.

I've got a question, is my freelance photographer heir allowed to help her husband with his store? He also sells her photos along with furniture/

Nathaniel is now a child, and Morgan aged up into an elder. She's about halfway through it. She doesn't have too much long. Collin has been able to kill 2 Sims now. I find drowning was definitely the easiest way to go. However, the first Sim I was trying to kill was in the house for about 5 days before she died. She was a Sim that belonged to one of the worlds, not a townie, so I am not sure why it took so long. I was trying to kill her of starvation first, but it didn't seem that she ever got hungry. It doesn't really make sense, though, because all of her others needs went down, except for energy, though. I don't know how many others have had issues with this, so I just decided to drown her. That still took like 2 days. She was an elder, so I don't know if that has to do with anything. The second Sim was much easier for me. She decided to jump in the pool as soon as I locked her in there, and she died within 12 hours, so that was very easy. I just have one more to go now.

UPDATE (5/29/18): Morgan passed away gracefully. Well, she invited Austin over and was eating outside, then died. Chana is now an elder. Collin reached level 10 of his career, and is making over $500/hr (wowza!), and has killed the last Sim. Nathaniel aged up into a teen. Unfortunately, this weird glitch happened. I sent Nathaniel over to his uncle's house one evening, and when I came back some renovations I made to the household weren't saved, and it so also happened that I lost Morgan's grave as well as the person Collin killed. I think that since it was a glitch, I'm not going to count it as a fail. I'll just keep in mind from now on that I need to save my lot before I go out, if I have previously made changes. I know in The Sims 2 it used to save automatically. I guess I assumed it would do the same. I also think that EA got rid of the auto-save feature. I believe The Sims 4 used to have that. Also, I am so excited for The Sims 4 Seasons! I can't wait to see what types of challenges that will bring.

Unfortunately, my hard drive failed and took my legacy with it. So I started a new legacy. I started with the idea of an alien and her human servant - but the human is the founder, and once I get generation 2 going, I'm probably going to kill off the alien and let her ghost haunt the lot for the rest of the legacy.

The Darkdusk Legacy has ended. Read the whole thing!
The Nightmagic Legacy has ended. Read the whole thing!
Last of Her Kind has ended thanks to a dead computer.

It's been a few weeks since I updated. I was on vacation and then finished up some schoolwork.

Chana passed away. Collin has just a few more days left. Nathaniel just aged up into a young adult, so I will try to get him to find a girlfriend soon.

EDIT (6/17/18): Collin passed away. Nathaniel found a partner to have his child. Unfortunately, because he's supposed to be a single dad, I had to send her away when the baby was born. They had a boy, Cameron. I'm going to roll for Generation 4 goals now.

1. Mixed Couple w/ Help
2. 4 kids
3. Unconventional Career
-Freelance Programmer – Use your programming skills on the computer for a variety of tasks, including creating apps, creating plugins and freelance work.
4. Unconventional Career
-Gardener - Plant, harvest and sell produce and flowers of all kinds.
5. Conventional Career
-(GTW) Doctor - No additional money-making opportunities. This career counts as a profession.
6. Memorial - The heir, along with any spouses or helpers, must be memorialized this generation, by a sim with maxed skill in the relevant crafting skill (painting, photography or writing). Memorials may consist of: a painted portrait, a photograph, a biography, or a book of life. Each memorial can be crafted by a different sim if you want, and they don't have to all be the same type, though they should all be displayed together.
7. (CL) Festival Frequenter - Every time there is a festival, at least one household member must attend the festival for at least one sim hour. This doesn't have to be the same household member each time.

This sounds like a lot of fun. Very different than my previous generations.
