A genetic legacy is one of several variation on the Sims 4 Legacy Challenge Rules.

Several options:
  • Dominant/Recessive Genes: Starting with a Sim who has totally dominant genes (eg. black hair/brown eyes) and seeing how long it takes for a totally recessive baby to be born (eg. red hair/grey eyes).
  • Perfect Genetics: The founder must have an extraordinary hair and eye color (e.g. white, pink, neon green) and each following heir(ess) must have the founder's genes.
  • Prettacy: Starting with a very ugly Sim, then trying to make the prettiest sim possible in 10 generations.
  • Uglacy: Trying to create the ugliest Sim possible in 10 generations.

Ugly in Pink (An Experiment), 1.2: Blatant Self-Insertation

Have you ever noticed that there's no uglacies staged in The Sims 4? I have! You know why? Because it's just too pretty.

Utilizing new technology in stretching the rules, I bring you Ugly In Pink, a legacy dedicated to defy the predestined aesthetic pleasure of this game. And the color pink. Because I like that color.

This is more or less an experiment (hence the title), as someone who's played little of The Sims 4, because I have no idea if genetics will mold into my horrifying favor. It will also be a lot more fast and loose than my GilsCarbo legacy, and I'll probably swear the exact same amount (so a lot!).

Without further ado...

Generation One: 1.0 // 1.1 // 1.2

This is a great idea, and I have been wanting to see someone do this because uglacies are very entertaining. However, as you know, Sims 4 in-game sims might be odd-looking or different on occasion, but they don't breed the monsters that previous games (especially 2, hallelujah!) gave us. I hope you have luck with rectifying this sad state of affairs. I found this chapter amusing, so I'm looking forward to what you do next! :)

I saw this on tumblr and I love it so much <3

Spoiler:
I'm very curious about how you'll manage to accumulate ugly over the generations!

As for Candyfloss being so cute, I've found it difficult to tell with children, they all look kind of same-y to me - so maybe there's hope yet! Also, I love her name. :)

I'm looking forward to seeing more!

You make a very good point, I have never seen a TS4 uglacy. Your sims are so amazingly amazing!

Spoiler:
Candyfloss, just how did you even? Wow. I think you're in for a challenge!

Cool! I've never played an uglacy. Is the founder supposed to look normal/pretty? :)

Oh man, waking up to four replies was cool. Thank you all for responding!

YEAH OH I maybe should have explained this. Using the candi0207 model, an uglacy is starting out with a plain or pretty sim (Babs happens to be the result of pressing randomize a few times until I got a face I thought looked nice) and slowly tries to ween anything close to pretty out of future generations. By Gen 10 I'm hoping the face resembles something like a blooming onion.

Oh, I see. :) Babs looks like she could be a selfsim of one of us simmers. :D

I might try an uglacy someday. :) Onion sims with big ears would look cool. :sly:

Kirby is aaaaaamazing! I hope it only gets worse. Building up enough for a first house while also meeting needs is particularly difficult in this iteration of the game, in my opinion, so good luck with that. Another fun chapter! :)

Well, I tried my best, though I don't think she's overly ugly!

You can find Ava Whiffen on the gallery. My origin ID is majesticnessie, but she'll show up under the hashtag #uglyinpink, too. Enjoy! :D

This is fun! For me, Sims 4 is a lot more fun to read about than to actually play. It really is pretty to look at, though, that's the truth.

Good luck getting the ugly goal, and keep having fun!

This is a brilliant idea, and I love it already! Totally agree with a bunch of your gripes about TS4, though, especially the lack of SP - there is a mod at MTS that can help fix that, if you're okay with mods in your games. Not as great as nraas, but at least sims will get married and have children without overseer intervention.

Spoiler:
Kirby is so adorably ugly, he's amazing. So surprised that Magenta got taken away, I've let babies cry all night before tending to them, and no social worker. Your game is weird.

I'm appreciating your obsessive updating :D

Spoiler:
Omigosh I LOVE Kirby! He's so much fun just look at, and then his personality on top! I can't wait to see which one of the townies he marries - he's got quite a few to choose from, afterall!

Ava is noticeably cuter than the other uglies. My bad! But neat to see her in your game! Also Mulder and Scully!


Looking forward to more! :D
