3rd Generation


  1. Generation points – You gain 1 legacy point for your founder, and 1 point for every generation born until the 10th.
  2. Lifetime Wish points – You gain 1 legacy point for every unique lifetime wish fulfilled by a family member. The Sim in question must be living in the legacy house and be part of the family tree to gain this point.
  3. Portrait points – You gain 1 legacy point for creating a portrait of a family member and keeping it on display after their death. You don’t have to wait until the portrayed Sim dies, you can put it on display whenever during his/her life. The Sim must be Young Adult or older and living on the Legacy Lot at the time of painting to count for a portrait point.
  4. Legacy House points – You gain 1 legacy point for every $100,000 in net worth. You can be earning points up to $2,000,000!
  5. Aspiration Reward points – You gain 1 legacy point when a family member collects a total of 100,000 aspiration points. You get another one for the Sim if he gets to 200,000!


To keep the tree easily readable, I will create new family tree for each generation. It means that when the next generation is born, I will list only the parents (the heir of the previous generation and his/her partner/spouse) and their child/children. I will continue this way until the 10th generation and when my legacy is complete I will publish THE COMPLETE FAMILY TREE including everybody who can trace his/her bloodline to the founder.

    • Thanks! This is my first legacy ever, so I have no idea what is the average final score, but I don’t play for points, I play for fun! 😉
      Since gaining the legacy points belongs to the challenge, I decided to track them. Like this I can also see well which generation will earn the most money 🙂


  1. That’s a gorgeous family tree! And a great organizational setup, as well! I hope you reach the 10th gen. I’m really looking forward to seeing this expanded. Personally, I’m a lazy legacy simmer. 😛 I’m using for the Diabolical family tree. You really do inspire me! ^_^

    • Thank you! All your lovely comments scattered around this blog make me feel so very happy 🙂

      I’m a perfectionist, so basically I am totally obsessed with organization. Plus this is also useful – the colored diamonds I’ve included in the family tree help me track the points better!
      I hope I can bring this legacy to the 10th Gen, because I don’t like to leave a work half-done. I’m happy I’ve inspired you 😉
