The Sims 4: How to Do the Random Genetics Challenge

How to Do the Random Genetics Challenge in The Sims 4

Doing challenges in The Sims 4 can be a lot of fun but a lot of them also require a lot of work. That’s fun when you’re looking for a more involved challenge but sometimes you just want quick and easy fun. That’s where the Random Genetic Challenge comes in. Creating your Sims is certainly one of the most fun aspects of playing The Sims 4 but sometimes it’s just fun to see if lady luck is on your side. Plenty of Sims 4 players have been taking to forums and social media to share the results of their own Random Genetics Challenge and here’s how you can get in on the action.

You just start out by randomizing two adult Sims. You will do this by going through each of the different customizable features and clicking the dice icon for a pre-determined amount of times that you should decide on before starting the challenge. For example, if you decide your lucky number is three you will click on the dice icon three times for each of the features. Once you do this for both parent Sims you will want to use the Play With Genetics feature to create their child. Technically, you are welcome to use any age Sim you’d like for this challenge but the most common and highly recommended Life Stage to use is the Teen.

The next step is incredibly simple—try to make your new offspring as beautiful as possible without actually changing any of their genetics. So you can’t simply do away with any features you don’t like but you’re more than welcome to try to cover them up with different hairstyles and makeup. Now take your new family into the world and see if your Sim will become an Adult that grew into their looks or if they’ll be relying on a good personality for the rest of their life.
