Default The Expansion Pack Legacy Challenge. (AKA a Lepacy)
The Sims 3 Expansion Legacy Challenge

I made this challenge because I wanted to experience everything in the game, so this challenge was born!
You do not have to do everything I have listed in the challenge, so don't worry if you don't want to do everything. It's more of a list of everything that came in the packs, so you can do as many new things as you'd like.
I appreciate constructive criticism, and please tell me if I forgot or messed up anything. I've tried to be as thorough as possible while researching the packs, but I'm only human.


Setup

Download and use Sim Game Selector to remove any packs. (It doesn't work on mac.)
https://modthesims.info/d/499140/si...stuff-quot.html

Create your starting founder.

You can move them into any lot you like.
You can also move around as much as you like throughout the legacy.

(General Rules)

Feel free to mod your game as much as you want!

I recommend not using too much CC or B&B/CAS Store Content. Gameplay items and lots are Okay.
DEFAULT REPLACEMENTS are okay.

No cheats that cheat gameplay to your advantage.
You don't have to do everything in a generation.


No aging sims up until day 1 or 0.

No bringing heirs back from the dead.

You must randomize your sims traits,

(This wonderful Idea was submitted by SueSimming)
Unlock the next pack before the teenage heir ages up to a young adult

The next generation starts when your heir grows up into a Young adult.

You will have one primary heir to the generation, and you can also have secondary heirs who live with the heir.
Secondary heirs can do anything the heir can except produce the next heir.
You can use any lifespan you want.

Hi, I would like to know something. Shouldn't we unlock the next pack when your heir turns into a teen? Only so that you can pick a trait and wish for your heir before they age up and begin the challenges. This is one of the best challenges I've done so far. It really made me fall in love with the game all over again and to see how simple it started. I hope to see updates soon.

Simmortality is doing something very similar to that on her youtube channel if anyone is interested in watching. Link to the MTS thread
She's very close to starting generation 2 now (World Adventures) and will install WA shortly before the heir ages up.

I have been playing this wonderful challenge for a while, having the most fun I've ever had in this game.

I'm with the last pack, ITF, and found a bit of a problem with one of the requirements:

Complete one of the Following Careers
(Astronomer, Bot Arena.)


The rabbit hole buildings for these careers are in Oasis Landing, but because of the mechanics of the game, it's impossible to get a job there, unless you use Nraas Traveler. Another option would be to install the rabbit holes in the home world, which would sort of defeat the purpose of the "future" scenario.

So... I didn't do that one. Instead, I reached level 10 of the self-employed bot-building career, which I was actually able to accomplish in Oasis Landing.

My founder ended up giving birth to 2 humans and 5 ghosts. Well she certainly accomplished the goal of having a ghost baby. Having made the mistake of playing World Adventures with a ghost before, I at least know exactly who my main and secondary heir will be lol.

Out of all the EP legacy rules I've read, your version definitely seems like it will be the most interesting one to play. I love how there's a long list of tasks to complete, some small and some really challenging, so that we end up exploring as much of each expansion pack as possible.
