The Sims 4 Random Legacy Challenge


Welcome to The Sims 4 Random Legacy Challenge

The Sims 4 random legacy challenge is one of the most popular challenges out there. You create a sim with a family that is purely governed by sheer chance.

That includes your sim’s:

  • Marital status
  • Number of children
  • Primary career and secondary career
  • Heir
  • Generation goals

The main goal is to keep creating new generations until you complete your 10th and the heir of the 11th comes of age, which marks the end of the challenge. We recommend you visit for your rolls! Everything that you roll has a brief explanation when you click on it. This will help you avoid reading huge lists of rules! It also comes with a set of filters that you can turn on and off, depending on which expansion packs you own.

Remember, spouses, helpers, and non-heir children may only roll for secondary careers!

Can you create any children?

On the Sims 4 random legacy challenge, when you go and create your first generation in CAS you can only create your sim, their spouse, and their helpers (if they have any). But, you can’t create any children on your own. After your sim gets the number of children your roll stated, you have to roll for an heir.

How do you roll for an heir?

The classic way to roll for an heir is to roll a number between 1 and X. X is the number of children that your family has. The number you get will determine which of your children is going to be your legacy successor. A good site that we recommend using for number rolls is! Just make it choose 1 random integer between 1 and X and you have your result. But, traditional dice can be just as random. Sims 4 bloggers have also found another way to randomly choose heirs. If you’re blogging about your challenge, you can make your readers choose which child will be the next heir through a vote!

Can I play The Sims 4 Random Legacy Challenge using my mods?

You are can’t participate in this sims 4 challenge if you have any mods that can alter your gameplay or give you any significant boost.

That could include very cheap furniture, cheating mods, etc.

However, you can use any debugging mods like MC Controller to manage your sims in times of emergency where your game needs a quick bug fix. However, you should try to negate any advantages that these can give you when you use them.

Can I choose my sims’ traits?

You are free to choose whatever traits you want for all of your sims. Unless one of your rolls states otherwise! We recommend that you opt for traits that are going to boost your sim’s career. For example, pick the Creative trait for a sim that has a career in arts.

So what’s the full set of rules?

You can find the extensive list of rules on Mod The Sims. The post also includes a full list of parameters. But don’t worry too much about them, as you can use the trick we told you!

Happy simming!
