(Saved from a web archive. Source: https://web-beta.archive.org/web/20150406001604/http:/boolprop.prophpbb.com/topic622.html)

So I have normal legacies and an apocalypse challenge in the making and I was wondering how to mix both into one single challenge. Thinking about this there was a tele show that echoed in the back, showcasing the worst case of cheap slob character Ive ever heard and it hit me. Lets make a legacy where the plot is surrounding social status!

(EDIT: SPOILERED FOR LENGTH)

Spoiler:
The main goal is to reach the top social status, a.k.a. to become a living legend. Each generation, excluding the first, will unlock items and many actions will unlock other things. There is a total of 12 social status to reach. Here are the status to achieve:

1. Scum Founder
2. Lowlife
3. Laborer
4. Low Class
5. Regular Class
6. Middle Class
7. High Class
8. Suburbia
9. Elite
10. Tycoon
11. VIP
12. Living Legend Final

Global rules

You cannot use any cheat unless mentionned. You will be able to lift restrictions as you go. You dont have to lift them during the current generation and you will be able to lift more restriction as you climb the social status ladder. Only the official heir may remain in the house once adulthood is reached. A heir must only be related to the founder/previous heir and does not require to be related to the official mate. The mate must be a townie/NPC custom townie is fine. Each social status you climb you get 2 points. You can only climb the status ladder once per generation. Each generation earns one point and each birth of a child related to the founder in the family line earns 0.25 point. You must roll for the aspiration as a teen and keep the default likes and dislikes. There is a failure only with a family wipe out or if the founder/heir dies before succeeding to the next level of social status. Each official heir that must be replaced due to death is a penalty of 1 point.

Handicaps

There are only 2 at the moment, earning 1 point each. Story teller: posting a story for each generation. Matriarchy/Patriarchy: each heir is of the same sex as the founder.

Beginning:

You must pick a neighborhood, custom or maxis made no matter. Create a lot of 2x3empty. Thats right, 2x3 you are not financially restrained to a minimum at start. Then go in CAS to create a single founderfor those with pets you CANNOT add a pet in CAS. Your founder can be either Male or Female. He/She must be fat and ungroomed unshaved, no fancy hair cut, no fancy clothes, no make-up aloud. The hard part here for many: no CC at all aloud with the exception of skin tone and eye color. No CC clothes or hair! Also, in personnality, the founder must have 0 Active points and 0 Neat point. The rest can be destributed which ever way you want. You can choose every aspiration you wish. For likes or dislikes, you CANNOT like the following:

-Cologne
-Formal
-Vampirism
-Glasses
The founders MAY NOT dislike the following:
-Stink oh thats the main option for most!:twisted:
-Fatness second most popular
And there you go you have your scum of a founder! You can use full face make up to make fantasy creature if you wish but not to pretty up the sim. You get 1 point automatically for creating the founder.

Hint: I dont suggest making a money sim at this point! But if you like hell in your game....

Founder:

Core rules Core rules mean no expansion, base game only

Then move your founder on the 2x3 lot and start building. Your house may not take more then 6x8 space + a porch porch is not an obligation. You can use a foundation if you want. You cant have more then one level but may add a basement if you want. In the building section, you cannot use the gardening tool, pool tools or pond tool. You can use CC walls and floors.
