Sims 4 Legacy Challenge Rules

The Colors Rainbowcy - Updated October 31st

Postby darkangel985 » July 13th, 2015, 7:25 am

And back again with a new legacy, since I'm on a simming spree again.

Lately I've noticed that even though I've owned the Sims 4 since the day it came out, I really haven't played much. I decided it's time to remedy that and what better way to do it than a legacy?

Since my Grey Warden legacy is somewhat serious I wanted something light and purely observational. Plus it's only gonna be 10 Generations (Maybe I'll finish this? Who knows.). Since I've always wanted to play a Rainbowcy, this is exactly what I'm going to do.

As always feedback, especially constructive criticism is very much appreciated. Enjoy yourselves, cause I definitely will while playing. Introducing my unoriginally named Sims 4 Rainbowcy:

Image

The Colorful Founders:

Prologue - The first spots of Color

Generation 1 - Yellow:
Gen. Yellow 1.1 - Say hello to yellow
Gen. Yellow 1.2 - The rolls make me yell: "Ow!"
Gen. Yellow 1.3 - Pictures so old, they've yellowed
Gen. Yellow 1.4 - Rebel yell(ow)
Gen. Yellow 1.5 - The yellow brick road drags on
Gen. Yellow 1.6 - A yellow sunset

Generation 2 - Orange:

Gen. Orange 2.1 - An orange dawn
Gen. Orange 2.2 - Of apples and orange apples
Gen. Orange 2.3 - O(h, what a)range of emotions
Gen. Orange 2.4 - The not so annoying oranges
Gen. Orange 2.5 - Party till your plumbob's orange
Gen. Orange 2.6 - Where is my (or)angelfish?
Gen. Orange 2.7 - There is my (or)angelfish!
Gen. Orange 2.8 - Orange is the new orange*new*

PS: The site in itself is still a bit bland, since I haven't made banners, backgrounds and the like, but it'll be added in time....or not, since I actually like the theme I have.

Spoiler:
Yay for Sulfur! I like your naming scheme. What order of colors are you going to be doing in your legacy? I haven't ever seen anyone start with yellow, but I like that you did! Yellow is cheery :)

I love reading other people's legacies because I can always learn something. I never knew you could sort the catalog by color. How convenient!

It's ironic that gold rolled the mean trait, really. I mean it's pretty mean to be crying and be a fussy baby all the time, so it only makes sense that he would become a mean sim? lol He is cute though!

The last picture of Coral with Pyrite is so cool looking! I think it's because of the sparklies. Anyways, I loved the chapter and can't wait to read the next one!

@ jessika:
Thanks for reading :) Glad you like it.
I've sorted the 10 colors I chose in a (for me) logical order, which will be: yellow, orange, brown, red, pink, violet, blue, turquoise, green, lime. I know it really has very little in common with the way colors are usually sorted, but I call that artistic freedom. It just seemed right to start with yellow.

Spoiler:
And we (or rather you, because I already know) will see how mean Gold will really turn out in the end.


Next chapter is out btw.

I love rainbow legacies because they're very entertaining visually, and yours is no exception. It was also entertaining in other ways, too. The boys are cute, and have some interesting personalities. Coral made great progress, and Johnny . . . well, he did stuff too. ;) My favorite parts were actually Alice's birthday parties - very funny that your sims kept having more important things to do! This is a great start. Looking forward to more. :)

It took a long, long time, but I finally managed to write up the new chapter. Hopefully this is going to continue sooner now, but I'll make no promises.

Welcome back! Great chapter. :)
Spoiler:
The boys have very interesting personalities, and that provides for a lot of interesting interactions, and they are all good-looking to boot. I could go back and check your succession laws but I'm having a lazy night, so let me just ask: how are you going to choose an heir? I love rainbow legacies because of all the color, and you've done a nice job yellow-ifying the house. It'll be a lot of work to change it all to orange, huh? :haha: Anyway, good job!

Thanks for reading Taube.

As succession law I'm using strict equality (no adopted heirs and boys/girls have same right). As for the heir choosing adherence to the color scheme is what will matter most.
Spoiler:
Meaning this generation haircolor will not matter much as all the boys have blond hair, but eyecolor might be a deciding factor. And next generation will have an orange haired heir, even if I have to have 10 kids till I get one.

And if the kids are similarily colored I might run a poll here.

And as for the house: I'm looking forward to making everything new, cause that is fun too. :)

I really shouldn't post at 5 am, but I've got night shift and am up anyway.
I hope that the new chapter doesn't contain too many tiredness induced spelling mistakes/typos. During the last couple pictures I have grown a little less chatty than usual, which might also be blamed on lack of sleep. I hope you can bear with it, since I want to get this chapter on the way and continue playing (after I get home from work and get some sleep of course).

Thanks for reading and considering how long it took me to update from the beginning, getting here a little late is probably a good thing. :wink:
But I'm trying to get better and that's why the next chapter is already here.

Just began reading this, can't believe I've never seen this legacy before!

Anyways, the first few chapters are hilarious! And the three boys are adorable!

Wow, once again a long time since the last post, but oh well, that's just the way it is. Pictures from the chapter are a little...hehe...I mean a lot...older, so no cute toddlers or vamps yet. But since they got me back into the game they will eventually turn up.

And another chapter is up. I've finally managed to catch my writing up to my playing, so for once the pictures aren't months old.

Loving it so far!

Spoiler:
Coral was such a fun looking sim, it's sad to see her go. Also I have to admit I died laughing at the vampire death- all those plans, to waste! Gotta say I'm torn between liking either Cornelian or Rust better, as both seem like fun sims- but Rust with his kelpto/goofball trait is amazing.


Looking forward to see what happens next!
