Awesome! So now we can add those buildings in both this challenge and the immortal one? I enjoy the Town Life Buildings so much. :)

Well said. Done.

--------

EDIT: WOW! I don't get excited very often but Chronic you made my day.

  • Barnacle Bay players can use Edit Town features to place a Salon, Firehouse, Consignment Store, and Junkyard.


I just was able to completely eliminate that rule with your suggestion. Simpler is always better. Now to hop over to the Immortal Dynasty ruleset.

This just made my day.  I am waiting to start my next attempt at this challenge until Hidden Springs is released (in less than 2 weeks).  Being able to place any of the EA provided lots is a wonderful idea. 

To build on this, is it possible to place EA provided bin families in the world?  This would only be for the few families from EA, not for any other custom downloaded families.  If not that's okay, but since they are provided by EA it would be the same as playing EA households that are already in the world. They would only be able to be placed in empty houses that they could afford, no freerealestate to put them in expensive houses, etc.  ;D  ::)

Well, that would make sense, but for now let's not. There should be plenty of options for players to choose from without opening that up. I'm honestly not disagreeing with the concept, Teresa. I'm just keeping things simpler for now.

Simple is good, just had to ask though.  ;D

Left unanswered:

2.  I noticed that Tourists are listed as NPCs, but not Explorers.  Unless this is implied, Explorers should probably be listed as well to save future Simmers from confusion in this regard, because they seem to be two different types of NPCs though I'm not quite sure what the difference between the two is exactly.

3.  Can heirs marry townies from travelling destinations, given that they are not NPCs?

I would think that heirs would be unable to marry Sims from other countries as the heir has to move into a townie house.

That makes sense.

Rachel is right. That's not going to work because you typically move into a potential spouse's house.

Quick question! Looked for an answer, but couldn't find one and since I'm a newer Late Night player I may have missed it in the Immortal Dynasty thread.

As far as the Ops go do the celebrity Ops count? They're so frequent that I assume not, but I want to be sure.

I believe so, as they do in Immortal Dynasties. Just be sure to not have two heirs complete the same one or you're doomed, lol.

Celeb opportunity do count but like Chronic said make sure you write them down and don't let any of your other heirs do them. If it were me I would only use celeb opportunities for an heir that works in the film industry or has the LTW of lifestyle of the rich and famous.

Yeah I think I'm just going to avoid them unless I'm desperate for an opportunity. Thank you!

Just wanted to check on something before I did anything that ruined my attempt. Are there any restrictions on Mid-Life Crisis? I Control+F'ed each page of this thread and I didn't see anything specific.

I just checked the rules, cause I know that's banned for the Immortals in the Immortal Dynasty, but:
"5. You’re free to choose any traits and use Lifetime Happiness Rewards to change traits and Lifetime Wishes"
So it's not banned here.  ;D

Thanks, Esther. I feel silly for having overlooked it, but that was because I was skimming the rules for Mid-Life Crisis. Oops!

Is anyone else having a problem with aging in their decadynasty. My family are aging properly but I have an awful lot of townies still alive that shouldn't be. For instance Sims still alive and kicking include Emma Hatch,Thornton Wolff,Cyclon,Stiles Magraw,Leighton Sekemoto,Pauline Wan,Blair Wainwright etc etc. They all look like they are still in the young adult stage.

The problem of course if nobody gets older my heir won't be able to meet any new friends or new NPCS any suggestions people.

I believe Rica had something alike Rachel. I call it the DecaDynasty bug now.

I've seen that in my Immortal Dynasty (I think). I just recently got the notification MaryKay Shallow was about to die.

I think I may have to restart my dynasty. I have been playing for awhile this evening and noticed that people were aging,it seemed to be taking longer then usual but they were aging. So I decided that I might be able to work round the problem then right in front of my eyes my current heir,Briar's,age reset. She was two days from elder one minute the next she is right back to the beginning of adulthood. She hadn't done anything to reset her age.
So if my own family is messed up I just don't think I can work around this problem.
