The Challenge Rules

While each individual generation comes with its own rules, there are a few basic rules for this Sims 4 Avatar Challenge to keep in mind!

Let’s have a closer look at the challenge rules from KimbaSprite!

  • The purpose of this challenge is to complete the Avatar cycle by playing with 4 generations of the same family, but you may play up to 12 generations + 1 bonus gen with the current outline!
  • Each heir should represent their element or location by colour scheme/style. You can base this on the show or your personal likes/dislikes.
  • You can live in any Sims world unless otherwise specified in the rules of a generation.
  • You can have as many children as you’d like, unless otherwise specified in the rules of a generation.
  • Every generation is required to complete both the career and aspiration of the heir, unless explicitly stated otherwise.
  • Every generation is required to max out at least 4 skills to represent the 4 elements in the cycle.
  • If you decide to play this challenge, I’d love to see it! Use the tag #avatarlegacy in your posts to share!
