Sims 3 Legacy Challenge – Scoring


Part 2: Scoring your Legacy –

This is totally optional! You can play your legacy for fun without scoring or compete with others for the highest score!

Here is how to score from Pinstar’s post:

Generation: You get 1 legacy point for your founder, and 1 point for every generation born until the 10th. You earn each point at the birth of the first child in each generation. Further births in that generation do not generate more points. Thus you can only earn a maximum of 10 total Generation points by completing the challenge and birthing the 10th generation.

Lifetime wants: You gain 1 point for every unique lifetime want fulfilled by a family member. The sim in question must be living in the legacy house and be part of the family tree to earn this point. Once a specific lifetime wish has been fulfilled by a sim, further sims fulfilling that wish will not earn you a legacy point for doing so. There are 32 unique lifetime wishes in the game, meaning you could earn a maximum of 32 points in this category.

Portraits: 1 point for creating a portrait of a family member and keeping it on display after their death. Like above, the sim must be part of the family tree and living in the legacy house to qualify for this point. You earn this point after the portrait is created, you do not have to wait for the sim in the portrait to actually die. Portraits are still worth their points even if the family member pictured is moved out of the house later on. The skill of the artist doing the portrait does not matter, as long as it features the sim in question it counts. Portraits may be of any size or style. Keep in mind that a sim must have a painting skill of at least 5 to get the option of painting a still life (needed to capture a sim’s picture).
Sims must be of Young Adult or older and living on the Legacy Lot at the time of painting to count for a portrait point.

Legacy House: Earn 1 legacy point for every $100,000 in net worth the house is worth. To get the net worth combine the “Furnished Value” of the house with the family’s cash on hand. Round up. This category can have a maximum of 20 points earned, meaning a net-worth of 2,000,000

Aspiration Rewards: If a sim is able to earn 100,000 points worth of aspiration rewards, they earn your family 1 legacy point. You are free to spend aspiration points as you gain them, it is your lifetime total, not your current total, that matters for this point. Like the other sim-based points, this may only be earned by family members. You may earn an additional point in this category from a sim if they somehow earn 200,000 points in their lifetime.

I have found that the easiest way to keep track of my legacy score is to use RSKehrer’s wonderful Legacy Challenge Scorecard! There are versions for all combinations of expansion packs or just for the base game. The post has links to PDF versions of each type which you can print out but you can drop her an email to request a Word document if you would rather fill it in on the computer.
