Silver Screen Sims Legacy Challenge – Rules

#SilverScreenSims

The Silver Screen Sims Legacy Challenge was created for the Get Famous pack by Sims4Sarah. This legacy challenge is inspired by movies. It has two paths to choose from: The Classic/Golden Age of Hollywood OR 80’s Movies. Each path follows a different set of rules. I have copied the rules for both paths and also provided links to thesims.com forum pages. For the 80’s Movies Legacy, I didn’t have the Vampire Pack, so Sims4Sarah created an alternate starting version, based on the movie My Stepmother Is An Alien.

THE SILVER SCREEN SIMS LEGACY CHALLENGE – 80’S MOVIES

Each generation of this legacy is inspired by a popular and/or cult 80’s film.

Basic Rules:

Start with a Young Adult Sim. Either one you created especially for this or one you previously made. They should, for reasons that will play out in the challenge, human. Gender and any other appearance elements don’t matter.


**Edit 1/8/ 2019 ** It was requested that I add an alternative Generation 1 starting path for those that don’t have vampires in their game. I think that is a fair request. Aliens felt like a fair trade-off. I know that not everybody will have those too but since you have to have a good number of packs to take full advantage of this challenge, there is a good chance most people participating will have either Aliens or Vampires, if not both. So, just select which Generation One you want to use. If you go with Aliens, just note that it requires starting with TWO characters. 

Don’t cheat unless you are told to in the rules. What’s the point of that? There is no point scoring here, just the reward of the fun telling the story of your Silver Screen Sims Legacy.

Using creative content is up to you as long as it isn’t a cheat or it replaces an object required to complete a generation. I don’t use any but that’s just a personal choice.

Unless otherwise stated in the rules for a generation, you can live anywhere you want.

Similarly, color outside the lines all you want as long as you hit the action rules for each generation.

Generation One (Vampire Version): Lost Boys

Where is this? It was daylight a minute ago, right? Now its dark, gloomy and that guy over there just licked his lips when you looked at him. Boy, you must have taken a REALLY wrong turn during your walk in the woods. You really should leave but something is compelling you to stay.
