Your sim lives through 10 generations.

This should work for Sims 2, Sims 3 and Sims 4  banana

This is simple. Your founder sim has been blessed....or cursed...with his/her family's secret. Once every 100 generations a sim is destined to live for 10 generations.

On the sim's young adult birthday, he/she mysteriously receives an antique vial, along with a sealed note. This note states that your sim has been born under the "Highlander Crest" and that destiny has chosen him/her to live through the next 10 family generations.

A single drop of liquid from the antique vial must be added to a drink and consumed the day before the day of his/her birth.  

Option One:

Begin a save with a young adult single sim...male or female. Normal lifespan.

Move that sim into a house or empty lot he/she can afford.

Option Two:

You may begin with a child/teen in a current save as long as no money or needs cheats have been used since the beginning of the save. On the teen's young adult birthday the "Highlander Crest" begins. Normal lifespan.



*Live life as normal. Work. Marry. Conceive children or adopt. Your "Highlander" Sim living through 10 generations is the goal of this challenge. Have your "Highlander" produce at least one child. If your "Highlander" has more than one offspring you can choose which ever child you want as heir. This child will then have the next generation and then so on. The Highlander must stay in the household the entire challenge.

The Highlander can continue to marry and produce offspring throughout the challenge.

*On the day before your sims adult birthday drink a youth potion. Use any object to mark the consumption of the potion and place it somewhere on your lot (this will be your reminder).

*Youth potion points may be earned by anyone in the current household and the drink purchased and transferred to the inventory of the "Highlander". You may switch between aspirations at anytime to earn as many points as possible.

*If you miss drinking the potion before the adult birthday:

1.You must move your household to an empty lot (when moving tick the button to sell furniture).

2.Sell all of your personal inventory items for each household member.

3.Then use money cheats to reduce the household funds to zero simoleons.  This is the penalty for forgetting to drink your concoction.

Cheat codes:
“Money ###”–Set’s funds to exact number
“Sims.modify_funds +/-###” –Adds or subtracts value from current funds

*Continue to rebuild your family's life.

*If you miss drinking the concoction before your elder birthday, repeat the previous penalty.

*If your "Highlander" dies for any reason the challenge is over and your sim is branded "Hopeless Highlander". The family's legacy will be shamed for eternity.

You may:

Have a spouse: You must marry before moving them into the household.

Move members of the household out or keep them. Only 8 household members are allowed at one time. To be clear, you may not move out your founder.

Move to a different lot (without enforcing the above penalty).

You may not:

Use any Money or Needs Cheats

Have Roommates. Only family members are allowed, who of course are sworn to secrecy about the "Highlander Crest".

Use any Mods that would give your Highlander an advantage.

Now for the points:

There are none. I do not like point keeping.

If you make a founder or story please share. Use the hashtag #thehighlandercrestchallenge


Inspired by the Highlander Franchise

Very interesting. This will be fun to see when some of you do this. Smile

I am back in 3 again, with my family of 34 generations. (!)

Added to rules for clarification: Your "Highlander" Sim living is the goal for this challenge. You can play this sim as the one and only heir or choose an offspring/or any child produced in the challenge as an heir if you'd like but your "Highlander must stay in the household the entire challenge.

This looks like an interesting challenge. With simple enough rules that even I could follow.

I'm just unsure about the composure of the family:

My founder has to move to a new lot/house all by himself right after his young adult birthday.
He/she has to marry and then the wife/husband moves in.
What about the children marrying? Is only the designated heir allowed to marry, or are more than one children eligible to bring a spouse to the household at the same time?
When the original wife of the Highlander dies or moves out, can the he/she remarry?

You are making it too hard Wink Your "Highlander" does not have to move if you start playing him/her as a child. You can stay in the original lot, if you so choose.

No, your "Highlander" doesn't have to marry but if you want move a Sim in they have to marry. Your sims can adopt a child without marrying.

There really isn't a designated heir. The purpose of this challenge is to have the "Highlander" live through 10 generations. You can pick an heir other than the "Highlander" if you want but your heir must keep the "Highlander" with the household. The heir can marry. Yes, any child can marry and bring a spouse in the household.

If the original spouse of the "Highlander" dies you may remarry.

I hope this made things clearer. I would like to quote this comment and post it on the official Sims 4 and Sims 3 threads, is that okay with you?

Ah, I see: I could have my Highlander adopt a child, and when that turns elder my Highlander can adopt another counting as the next generation.

I guess I'm too stuck in Pinstar's legacy rules Laughing
