Challenge Rules

1. The gist of the challenge is that each generation must correspond to a specific color on the color wheel. The allocated color must be obvious in each generation, but how you implement that is completely up to you. Anything goes, showing the color through hair, make up, wardrobe, home decor, etc. We only used primary and secondary colors for this to keep it simple. The generation allocation is as follows:
  • Yellow
  • Orange
  • Red
  • Violet/Purple
  • Blue
  • Turquoise
  • Green
  • Lime
  • Black
  • White

2. Offspring for each generation should be named something that corresponds to the allocated colour for that generation. For example, for gen 3 (red), you could name your children Scarlet, Crimson, Heat, Strawberry, Blood-Count, etc. Have fun with it and feel free to be as creative as you want.

3. You can choose how many generations you would like to attempt, there are 5 possibilities:
  • 3 Generations (the primary colours: yellow, red & blue)
  • 4 Generations (yellow, red, blue & green)
  • 6 Generations (yellow, orange, red, purple, blue, green)
  • 8 Generations (the primary and secondary colours)
  • 10 Generations (bonus black and white rounds for those who don’t want to let go yet)

4. You can choose any shade of a particular color, from dark to screaming bright to pastel. As long as the colour is identifiable, it’s A-okay with us.

5. We take no responsibility for any retina scarring that may occur due to overexposure to colour.

6. You don't have to follow the exact order of the colors like we posted above, you can rearrange the colors to match any generation you want. What we posted above is just a suggestion.

Optional: The family surname should be the word “rainbow” in your native language. Also allowed is anything synonymous with rainbows in your part of the world (something from a legend or story, maybe a word you made up as a kid, whatever floats your boat).


Adaption of Gorgii's rules
The Main Idea
This Legacy challenge is made up of 8 generations counting the founder. The idea is to go through the colours of the rainbow, and match your family as close to their colour coded generation as possible. Custom content and custom townies is encouraged. The end of the Legacy is when the last person dies in the Violet generation.

Basic Rules

1. Your founder may be female or male, have any traits, LTW, and any career out of: Stylist, Science or Political.

2. They must be as multicoloured as you can make them. For every multicolour body part they have, you get 1 point. (Body part being eyes, skin, hair.)

3. Each child born in their colour generation must be named aptly. Example: Children born in the Red generation need to be named in relation the the colour red. (Garnet, Ruby, Heart, Cherry, Heat). Go as crazy as you like.

4. The order of the generations is suggested to be kept as:
  • Red
  • Orange
  • Yellow
  • Green
  • Blue
  • Indigo
  • Violet
If you really want to, feel free to change.

5. Each colour has a matched career path(s), that if you follow you will gain an additional 5 points. You get five points for a part-time at the top by time the sim grows into a Young Adult and five for topping a full time career before death. The paths are:
  • Red - Criminal, Mausoleum Gravedigger (as teen), Ghost hunter.
  • Orange - Business, Receptionist (as teen), Architectural Designer.
  • Yellow - Medical, Spa Specialist, Painting Skill-Career
  • Green - Military, Firefighter, Private Investigator.
  • Blue - Law Enforcment, Grocery Store Clerk,
  • Indigo - Culinary, Journalism, Bookstore Clerk.
  • Violet - Professional Sports, Education, Stylist.

7. You may make your own townies in an attempt to make children born with their generations colour, as children born matching their generations namesake will get an additional one point.

8. Each generation must have at least two children.

9. If your child(ren) LTW is completed, 10 points.

Other than that use normal legacy rules but add on these points:

Gain points for:
  • Founder with custom multicoloured parts: +1 per eyes. hair, skintone, make up, clothes. (5 points for founder possible)
  • Sim topping career: +5 points.
  • Sim topping part-time career as teen: +5 points.
  • Sim completing LTW: +10 points.
  • Child matching their generation namesake with bodyparts when born: +2 points
  • Following a career path to allocated generation: +5 points per career.
  • Sim having more than two children: +2 points per child.
  • Mastered a skill for heir: +7 points.

Lose points for:
  • Sim choosing different career to that allocated to generation: -1 point.
  • Sim dying on Legacy lot. Unless they are a controlable sim (I/E: portrait on the left), any sim dying on the lot: -2 points.
  • Each body part heir is not born with: -1 point per part.
