I looked back at this challenge and, sadly, Windows 8 won't allow TS2 and I don't have TS3. So currently, I am modifying this challenge for Life Stories. Right now I'm on Gen 3 and the oldest in this generation becomes a teen in 3 days. I clearly have a long way to go xD

Assuming that 4 generations can fit within 1 generation (that is, a person reproduces at 25 years of age or every quarter of the century), 100 generations mean 25 centuries or 2500 years. Assuming that 6 generations can fit within 1 century (that is, every person reproduces at around 16 years of age), 100 generations mean approximately 16 centuries or 1600 years. Because humans usually reproduce anytime between 16 and 25, sometimes earlier and sometimes later, I would estimate the number of centuries to be roughly 1600 years to 2500 years, from the ancient world to the modern age.

That said, this challenge can complement the Test of Time Challenge, as that challenge stretches from the Neolithic era to the Modern Age. Though, 1600 to 2500 years ago is not really the Neolithic era; it's the Ancient World.

This challenge is going to be on my to-do list.


Dear God xD I actually looked at the Test of Time Challenge for the first time yesterday and I love it, but can't do half the stuff because of stupid Windows 8 not allowing TS2 and the fact that I don't have TS3 doesn't help either. But let me know how it goes! And impressive math skills by the way, that hurt my brain :P

I'm looking for a challenge so gonna give this a go,only ever made it to 10 and that was years ago and I did it by the book. Would be fun to reattempt a legacy and then push it to the extreme, 100! lol :-) Although, since getting to 100 is a challenge in itself, I'm not going to focus on anything other than getting there for the first attempt, of course w/o cheats/mods. Actually think I'll try it vanilla (no cc). Gonna take a prtscrn of each one in adulthood, wish we still had the sims 2 site to load our stories.

I want to do a super big generation challenge but they scare me! I love love love doing several generations but I get so invested and attached to my sims I can't handle it when things don't go as planned. I normally play without rules and guidelines, just playing the game however I liked. This one time I was only at 3 generations before the game started to glitch. My family tree became super wonky.

Little Katie was having a birthday party because she was growing up from a sweet little toddler to a child. Sadly the spotlight was taken from her because her family went insane. Brandon was Katie's dad and Luke was Katie's grandfather. But for some reason Brandon and Luke were no longer listed as father and son. Instead they loved each other! And they started making out right in the middle of the kitchen. Katie's grandmother (Luke's wife, Jessica) became furious that her husband was cheating on her (with their son no less!) and slapped him then ran off crying. Brandon's brothers (both still teenagers) were still listed as his brothers and the sons of Luke and Jessica. So they were devastated to see their parents fighting. Now Brandon's wife had been out of the room when her husband decided to start making out with his father (again, not listed as son and father on family tree but as in love?) so she wasn't fazed by it at all and poor little Katie had grown up without anyone noticing because 6PM passed during the entire fiasco.

This challenge scares me because I'd hate to put a ton of work in it for the entire family to derail after only making it to three generation.

Oh yeah, one thing I forgot to mention is that I am counting the founders as generation 1, so I'm almost halfway done with generation 2(I hate it when I do other challenges to where I need to change how long their lifespan is, and it messes up how long my sims in this challenge live for) both my sims in gen 2 are sill young adults.

I think after 3 generations, 2 people that are 'related' some how don't know they're related I have only had it happen once but I kept my game because I thought it would work well with a story, that a part of the family is incestuous

This thread is dying down :l
I haven't really been playing my game, so I don't really have anything to talk about. but when I do have the confidence to deal with the giant family I've created, I will.

After growing a pair, I decided to try the challenge out myself! Of course, I am using Pinstar's rules, but will try to go to 100 instead of the normal 10. c:

I just got seasons, and well I just found a glitch. I'm not sure how I'm going to continue, I'll try, the glitch only happens when I throw a certain party so I think my family is gonna be ok

Awe, congrats! I lost the save with my founder so I've been set back to one again. ;-; Now I just need to figure out what it'll be this time. Male... or maybe female? Definitely adding a cat, though.

I've brought back the 1st gen ghosts and using them for money making, the family is at 33 kids and almost $100k I just hope my family don't go all incest on me...

Wow. This sounds interesting (and time consuming, lol). I don't think I'd ever make it through a hundred generations though. I've never even made it through a regular 10 gen legacy, lol. I might give it a go sometime though
