Edit: I get that certain drinks are available only on certain lots, but there seem to be so many possible combinations. So would I have made sure that one of my previous immortals buy one of each kind and stick a LN bar in it, so my mixology immortal can go learn?

I think you misunderstand. You don't have to put a bar in, as in a venue, you must put in the Buy Mode object of a professional bar (either the Dive or Duke edition) on that lot. If you got that, good. Just making sure.

A few pages back there was a discussion about SuperMaxing Mixology. My post here includes a spreadsheet detailing where you can find all the drinks. Same information as the link from Rica, but organized by lot. Two posts down from that, Deme spells out which lots you would need to SuperMax. Take a look.

To be fair, it's not that they're needed for the supermax...It's just a combination I considered relatively efficient when I looked over the different unique drinks. There are definitely other combinations.

Thanks guys! By that point, if I picked the wrong lots and I can't get enough to make the entire 42, I'll probably have enough cash to buy another lot and stick a bar on it. That's an awesome spreadsheet, thanks so much!!

A couple of things I'm a fan of doing to make dealing with the elders more bearable, and by bearable I mean not screw up the dynasty while I alt tab and do something else with the game speed at max.

-Give them all Couch Potato so that they'll autonomously watch TV 24/7. In my non-HoF dynasty that I finished anyway, only two immortals did not have Couch Potato (Gen 4 and Gen 7)
-Buy them cheap beds with low energy so that they'll stay asleep longer. Do not buy meditative trance sleep on anyone.
-Do not claim cooking as a supermax. This way, non-immortals can cook their own meals as much as they want. If you really want cooking as a supermax, make a kitchen that only your immortal can enter and put a second fridge somewhere else.
-Buy steel bladder on everyone.
-If you have a witch or someone skilled in handiness, make everything unbreakable, especially the TV.
-Hire a maid.

Here's something I found in my Life States Dynasty. Quick promotions!

When my sixth generation, Mary, grew up, she rolled the LTW of Creature Robot Cross-Breeder. I had her get to level 10 in Nectar Making first, then sent her to science. If you get to work at least 30 minutes before your scheduled shift (as in, inside and the work meter going), you should get a notice that says that your coworkers noticed you've arrived early. Combine this with Multi-Tasker LTR, and Mary had no problems getting to level 10 Science in about 12 work days.

Awsome info, that will be very useful for some careers or when you are almost running out of time.

I forgot to post my absolute favorite tip for dynasty founders. Something that was heavily abused back when I made stories.

Make your spouse join the Architectural Designer profession. By doing so, your family will receive a 40% discount on everything in build and buy mode as long as said person does not either quit or retire. If you want to make an immortal join the profession, then you can max out the career without ever doing a single renovation. All you have to do is delay learning painting until young adult, buy the entrepreneurial mindset LTR, join the profession, then research architectural design on the drafting table until you hit level 10 in the career. Your painting will be around level 9 and a half by the time you max out the career. I always choose this as my career for my painting immortal.

Social Networking = Truly the greatest thing ever! I had my Martial Arts immortal max it by the time she was a young adult, so now future generations won't need to worry about the best friends requirement! I can change the relationships of all sims who work in rabbitholes so that the co-worker/boss metric is outstanding, and I can make random townies date! Right now, I'm really hoping Bebe and Chris have kids . . .

Just making them date won't make them have kids without your help.  Unfortunately, story progression just doesn't work that way anymore.

Sadly, sadly, sadly. Now I just need to figure out a way to make townies have kids by themselves!

In a way that's dynasty legal?  Move in old men and have them have babies with young women.  Beyond that, there is no such way (legally in dynasties anyway).

So true.  Instead we have to stoop to using elderly men who'd probably prefer to fish than woo women.  Not that there is much choice of young women in my current dynasty file (and only at third generation too!)  If it wasn't for the paparazzi still being around town (even without celebrities), there would be zip.  All of the unsupernatural NPC's around the place are men!  Next time I'll know to turn off supernaturals before I start the dynasty attempt.

I have a 'cunning plan' for Gen 3, Gen 4, and perhaps Gen 5 spouse. Though knowing me, I've probably forgotten something that's vital and will cause my 'cunning plan' to backfire on me. :(

For that reason, I'm not revealing my 'cunning plan' until after I trial it and see if it does in fact work.

Oh what a tease!  Just make sure that your plan is in fact legal.

I would reccomend cooking or fishing for a founders supermaxThese are both easily completed.. Gardening can work but is best left for a generation that can travel because it can be difficult to get all the challanges done if you don't travel. Painting could work for a founder but a lot of painting opps require travel and I usally save painting for generation two or three.
I would avoid inventing,handiness,logic and music for founders as those skills do not serve any useful purpose at the begining of a dynasty.

Rachel

This would've been nice to read before I started my first try at an Immortal Dynasty yesterday. My founder has to max painting and guitar for her LTW. I decided on painting for her supermax skill.

I don't know why but I suddenly am feeling stupid and want to ask... Traveling involves going to University and Vacations and the World Adventures locations right? Going to the grocery store doesn't count as traveling.  I feel like my IQ just dropped 20 points. :/

Correct. The travel restrictions only apply to places outside of the homeworld. Not allowing sims to go off their lot would be insane. :P

Painting actually isn't a bad founding supermax, though combining it with maxing guitar is a bit demanding. I also like alchemy as a founding supermax, since getting my alchemist ready for ambrosia was super-easy.

I'm just focusing on the painting aspect for the moment. Her lot literally has the basics, minus a few things like the shower. I make her goto the gym to shower. :) While playing previously I discovered the blueprints. Although she (my founder) can't purchase one at the moment, I know that a simple studio apartment can fit into a 10x10. So I made a 10x10 foundation and two walls for the sink and toilet. She also has a sleeping bag and a fridge, quick meals save the day when a stove can't be afforded. I'm so amused by the fact that her place is so bare minimum.

When you use the blueprints, they come with walls.

My challenge has never been to supermax a skill but to stop others from supermaxing it!

Gardening is now very easy to supermax with Supernatural and University life.  The supernatural mushrooms/roots/flowers (11) and university life herbs/beans/spices (17) from those two plus the lemons and purple eggplant from the Street Market and pumpkins from Seasons means gardening is now far too easy to supermax.  The hard part is keeping it an exclusive supermax because my immortals will garden randomly unless I lock the garden gate.

With the freakishly fast skilling glitch, Cooking is now too easy to accidently supermax because they get the Culinary Librarian just by maxing the skill to level 10 with all the new recipes from recent EP's and over time, may cook up to the 75 meals to supermax the whole skill over the period of the dynasty.  Another reason to keep the kitchen door locked but then they'll go off and use the park grills and fry themselves too!  :o

On reading through the three rulesets, I actually find the other two more restrictive.
