I have a quick question, related to the new Generations feature. Can we count the imaginary friend as a best friend for the household? My heir just became best friends with her imaginary friend.

Sure. Just remember that moving requirements are all time based on the point when the heir needs to move.

Got generations today so I'm ready to start - I have a question though.... If I choose Emma Hatch as my starting Sim and she marries a single man and moves in to his house, does the 10 days start from week 1, day 1 or from the day she moves in with her new husband (or am I doing it wrong?)

Also - how much modification are we allowed to do to the houses? I know many of the townie houses dont have nursery facilities so I figure some modifications will be necessary but going as far as levelling the place and building a house of your own design seems 'not in the spirit' of things.

Well, I suppose that's okay. That's not really how I envisioned the beginning. How I would play it would be Emma stays put and the husband comes to her house. The moving does not happen until the heir moves out.

Also - how much modification are we allowed to do to the houses? I know many of the townie houses dont have nursery facilities so I figure some modifications will be necessary but going as far as levelling the place and building a house of your own design seems 'not in the spirit' of things.

Totally up to you.

Well I wanted to go from poorest to richest (ending up in one of the mansions for my 10th gen) but I can't seem to find a way to get the lot values of occupied houses and the combination of poor and single seems to be rare. I have to start with a girl though - its just my thing, I always have 1 sim I feel more connected to and its either the starting wife or the offspring (who I prefer to be girls - no offense to the boys but crap hair and boring clothes).... but I suppose I could start with the guy - have a traditional proposal. Anyone know any poor single men? ;)

In Sunset Valley you could go for Erin Kennedy, she's not poor but not rich either, Jamie Jolina is likewise.

Poor single men...Christopher Steel is somewhere in between. I would say go for Leighton Sekemoto but he lives with his mother and son and is thus not eligible.

I already have to restart :( Got to week 2 day 1 - still not even romantic interest with Emma...she is hard work (but oh so pretty). Its a shame Claire Ursine is off-limits. I really don't want 10 generations of that Kennedy jawline ;)

It doesn't help that Emma has the unflirty trait. She is pretty thought. I think Emma and Chris Steel make a good couple they both have the same cow print sleep wear so it is destiny.

My founder is Monika Morris. I have my or should I say her sights on Stiles but I like to keep my options open. Whoever she marries will move in with her.

Yep. All of that is fine. But, the heir cannot marry a homeless Sim because they need to move to a townie house.

They're both natural cooks too - its a match made in heaven if I can just manage to woo her. She'll accept flowers but any sort of flirting and she suddenly has to leave.

I had Emma moved in with Gobias as a friend, and then have them as best friends to cuddle and woohoo in hot tub and that's how they got to romantic interest. After that, she accepted every romantic interaction (Gobias is flirty), but without romantic interaction it is not really working for her.

I do have a little question again, can LTR objects count as 10 objects requirement? I've ment leaving 10 collector helpers for example.

I thought the ten objects had to be valuable do collection Helpers have a monetary value?

Yes, you can even sell Collection Helpers. Also, teleporters, replicators and the Moodlet Manager.
Well, that's your opinion, isn't it? And I'm not about to waste my time trying to change it. - Lady GaGa

That's an excellent suggestion. There really are not that many different categories of objects, especially for base game Dynasty players. I'll add reward objects to the rule set as a possibility. Good thinking, Anushka.

Yes, they are worth nice amount of cash compare to other things. Collection Helper is worth more than 4000$, and teleportation pad is 15.000$

Thanks Metro!

The smart strategist would wait until the very last minute before moving though to grab those 10 rewards and place them. That would keep depreciation at a minimum.

Just thought I would point out that Barnacle Bay now comes with the salon, junkyard, firestation, and consignment shop already placed.  Don't know if people already know this, as I don't play there often, or if it is something they fixed with a patch.
