Well, you still can't have Claire move in and have her unborn child become the heir. Heirs need to be the result of Try For Baby of two Sims living together.
Wasn't planning on it, thanks!

Okay, great. Anyway — yes, you can start with the Frio household. ;)

As information, when changing households the property and business ownership does reset.  What I did was have the heir rename each when he bought it. He added his name so future generations will know what has already been bought.  The name change remained even though the ownership didn't.

River Front Swim Center is now Bryan Jones Swim Center while the Soil and Water Research Facility is the Bryan Jones Research Facility.

I accidentally had my founder join a band. Being that it was only one day maybe I should start over. Is there a way to undo it?

If your Founder asked someone to form a band, then you can simply kick out that Sim the next time your founder and Sim gets together.

This challenge is so much fun. I have a question though.
Can an heir max a skill that another heir is going to supermax? I'm asking because they can't in the Immortal Dynasty and I need to know if I can get my sim to Level 10 in the Logic Skill.

5. Heirs must SuperMax a unique skill—no other heir can SuperMax the same skill. SuperMax means that not only is the skill maxed, but all related skill challenges have also been completed.

All maxed skills for the heirs must be unique.

I thought that anyone could max a skill but only one could supermax the skill. Like only one could complete all the challenges and stuff. I remember this being a big discussion in the Immortal Dynasty thread. The difference between max and supermax.

It's true that the definition of SuperMaxing a skill is that your Sim completes all of the challenges in the journal, along with reaching level 10.  However, it also has to remain a unique maxed skill.  If your founder SuperMaxes cooking, no other heir can even just max cooking.  You can't let it go to level 10 or it will disqualify that skill for the founder.

Aahhh. Thanks for clarifying that Pam. I'm glad this question was brought up again. Because I would have been mad if I had to scrap my whole dynasty because of something so small.

Metro, I've hit a bug. The portrait panels for the offspring are all just green squares and they are not selectable. I have a save about 2 sim weeks ago that is still working. Can I go back to that or should I just start over? I'm only 4 weeks in at that save, so it's not a 5-generation loss.

Did you recently travel in this game?

I traveled in the save that won't open. The one that opens is my save right before the travel. I usually save before and after traveling due to bugs.

Ok, sounds like that nasty travel bug, which is a technical difficulty out of you control.  Go ahead and use the previous save.

My heir went to China and when she came back I noticed she had a child in China. I know this is a bug but will it interfere with anything? I know it will definitely be annoying to see it in the family tree.

Also, those 10 BlackOps are driving me crazy! My heir needs 2 more before she can move. I've even had her learn a new skill!

So, the child was not added to the household? The child is only listed in the family tree? If that's the case, I'd say forget about it and treat it like it never happened. But, I've also heard that vacation bugs can simply become nightmares and lead to real game wreckers (invisible Sims, etc).

I have had my sims become invisible a couple of times but reseting them works out. Although I did open the game once and only could control my heir!
EDIT: Another question. Can your heir move into a household with vampires in it but turn those vampires into normal sims or move them out? I'm asking this because my heir only has a few eligible bachelors but they all have vampires in the household.

Could we use Edit Town to place the new play ground that came with Generations?  Or the Library that is now available for download from the Sims 3 Store?

Metro, I think you missed Gogowars' last question.  I'm not comfortable answering it.  Actually, I forgot the answer.

I deleted my last post to avoid contradicting myself because after giving the whole vampire issue some more thought — I'm relaxing the rule. Vampirism spreads like a plague through a town and I can actually see someone failing their DecaDynasty due to not being able to move into a vampire-free home. That would be stupid. I'm holding firm on no vampire spouses — even if you could immediately cure them — it's a no go. Vampires/former vampires cannot be spouses. But, I'm willing to allow heirs to move into a house where anyone but the potential spouse could be a vampire provided all vampires are moved out the day the heir moves in. I'm off to edit the rule now.

@Metro:

Have you asked Carl to put the DecaDynasty rules on the Guide with the Immortal Dynasty rules?

I did when I originally posted them here, but I will remind him.

Hi... first up, I think this is a cool dynasty challenge, although I confess to having to read every page of this forum topic to fully understand the rules.

I started my Dynasty last night, but I kinda made a slip up... I'd turned 'Aging Off' for a previously loaded game, and assumed it would be automatically re-enabled with a new game, but apparently not; I didn't realize until two days after my first heir was born. I'm going to have to start again, aren't I?  :-[

BTW, since this is my first proper attempt at a challenge, what are BlackOps exactly? I get that they refer to Opportunities in careers, school etc., but what makes them BlackOps, as opposed to regular Opportunities?
