Welcome to The Silverglass Legacy


Greetings reader! Welcome to my first attempt at the Sims 3 Legacy Challenge. Currently, I have only just begun Generation 1.


Otherwise, go to my recent posts to check out the latest chapter!


“The Legacy Challenge is a long, 10-generation challenge where you start out with a single founder and very humble beginnings and try to lead the family to fame, fortune and success over the course of 10 generations.” – Pinstar1161

The founder of this legacy is Acacia Silverglass.

Generation 1

Traits: brave, ambitious, friendly, clumsy, genius
Lifetime Wish: CEO of a Mega-Corporation

Rules I Will/Won’t Be Following:

  • To start off, I will give my founder a fund of $50,000 which will be used to buy and move into the empty lot at 15 Summer Hill Court. I will build a suitable house for her and from then, on will not use any money cheats for this household.
  • Alphabetcy: Start generation 1 with “A” names, gen 2 with “B” etc.
  • All traits are¬†randomized except for the founder’s.
  • I will be slightly editing in game sims before their appearance in the legacy when needed (i.e. when they look really ugly) and also will be¬†adding sims created by me for storytelling purposes.
  • This legacy is greatly story based. This means that I will be using all types of cheats in order to get the screenshots I need such as: testingCheatsEnabled and hideHeadlineEffects as well as moveObjects to set up scenes. I however, will not use money cheats as aforementioned.
  • I will not be following a point system.
  • And obviously, I will be telling a story!

Currently, the plan is to post once a fortnight and if possible, more regularly than that. Hopefully, I will be able to stick to this blog and post regularly unlike my photography blog I started a while back (you can have a look at it if it interests you, I haven’t updated it in a long time. Maybe one day I will find inspiration to start posting on it again). I will try my best to finish this legacy!
