What exactly is a legacy?
I see them all over, and I know they're families that go on for generations, but what are the rules or set of norms to them?


[I wasn't sure whether or not to post this here or in help, move if need be.]

Depends on the legacy. They've got different rules, depending on the legacy (usually no cheats, and no hacks/mods). I've not been much on them myself, but I've read a few.

Alphabet-legacies might be legacies where all the kids get names after the alphabet
Rainbow legacies might be every generation in a different color.
... And so on.

Not entirely sure if challenges go under legacies, but you've got
- Toddler challenges - one parent, 7 toddlers, good luck growing them all to teens without cheats
- zombie/apocalypse challenges - everyone outside the house are zombies, and your job is to get the sim to survive a set amount of days without turning into one (needs some mods to work that way)
- Asylum challenges/legacies (you control only one sim in a closed-off space with maybe one toilet and 3 beds - the rest live their life without any control)
... And so on.

They make fun reading, if the person can actually write good. Some legacy-stories are just "now they do this and then they do that", which is boring to read (in my opinion).
