The Garden Legacy Ruleset, Modified

The Garden Legacy Ruleset, Modified

Postby singinghymns » March 10th, 2019, 8:45 am

This is the modified ruleset of cowplant-pizza's Garden Legacy. I modified it to fit with Sims 4 a little more closely and to clarify some rules that didn't follow through the challenge (The actual Garden). I also added some things that I think will make the legacy more challenging. For her original ruleset, click on her name above. There are quite a few modifications, so I couldn't highlight all of them. You can compare mine to hers if you would like. :flirt: I changed some of the plants per generation to ones you can find in game. The Garden aspect kinda got lost in the rules, so I followed those through until the end, and just added a few rules per generation here and there. I also added scoring! Happy Simming!

The Garden Legacy Challenge is carried out across 10 generations of your Sims family of choice. This introduction to the challenge can be used as a guideline if you wish, as I’d love for you to express your creativity by using this as a template. Please, sit back, relax, and enjoy playing the game! :)

• Money Cheats are NOT allowed
• Aesthetic CC and poses are FINE
• Needs must be on decay AT ALL TIMES
• Feel free to pause aging ONLY FOR STORY PURPOSES
• Your Sims must live on the SAME LOT for the whole 10 generations. A larger lot is recommended (if you have to move to save your game, MOVE)
• Any world is fine
• You may edit what your Sims look like in CAS if they fugly
• You can only control the current heir and the future heir once chosen. Toddlers and children can be controlled to take care of basic needs only, but once they hit teens, hands off.
• Randomize all traits, except for incoming spouses.
• Scoring is optional, however, if you want to keep track, each generation is worth 10 points once you have produced an heir and they reach YA. Subtract 1 point for every generational rule you don’t complete and add a point for every one you do complete. You lose a point for every child or animal removed due to neglect!

Your entire 10 generations will be named after various plants you could find or have in your garden. This is inspired by the fact that your Sims will have a love for nature throughout all 10 generations, living their life on the family farm. Each generation also has a berry color in case berry simmers would like to enjoy the challenge too!

Garden Requirements:
Must create a generational garden area. Each generation, that Gen’s representation plant must go into the designated area once they reach Perfect. If the plant dies due to neglect, you will lose one point per plant. If it dies of old age, create another Perfect plant and replace the old one. Add one point for each plant that dies because it has lived long enough (not sure this is something that happens in TS4, but if not disregard this part.)
