Standard Legacy Rules

Base rules:

  • You must start with a male or female then alternate genders every generation
  • You must buy the largest lot, then buy your trinket which can never be sold (Knight of the Octagon Table Suit of Armor)


  • Heirs MUST be a natural child, none of this adoption bullshit
  • Heirs must be the opposite gender of the last heir
    • (Start with male? Heir must be female)
  • If children fist fight, winner is the new heir
  • Only have children of the wrong gender? Heir defaults to the kid with the highest relationship with the last generation’s heir
  • If you have 5 surviving children and haven’t gotten the gender needed, default to the above succession rules
  • Heir cannot  marry and have children with non-townie sims
    • Side squeezes and bastards are allowed, but cannot be heirs

Small print:

  • A Sim may utilize an anti-aging item ONCE in their lifetime.
  • You may not change a Sim’s current aspiration unless they fully complete an aspiration.
  • You may not bring a Sim back from the dead once the reaper has taken them.
  • Spouses are not allowed to bring money to the household when they move in.
  • Aspirations and traits must be randomized, not chosen.
