I have started up a Sims 4 challenge called the Legacy Challenge.
In short, it’s a game challenge where you self-impose restrictions on your game play and follow certain rules for progression. In that way it’s very similar to the WoW Ironman Challenge. The Legacy challenge starts you off in poverty where your poor poor founder has to build a family following a set of laws for 10 generations. You fail the challenge if your sims are not able to produce an eligible heir. The link above explains it in detail.
I had to choose a set of rules for what makes an eligible heir in my family. I went with a shrek-type founder, just a thoroughly good guy (family oriented, cheerful and nerd) and decided that I wanted the Jollygreen family to carry on their mark of green skin as the defining factor.
I have chosen the following succession laws as described in the challenge rules.
To summarize, the only way for the Jollygreen family to carry on is for the previous-generation parents have a (nonadopted) child with green skin. If more than one child is born with green skin, it’s the oldest child who will be named heir.
In the photo below we have good ol’ Papa Jollygreen, my founding father, very poor, living on the biggest lot in a public toilet in the desert town of Oasis Springs.
Here’s a youtube video introducing to the challenge:
