It's the same thing in my mind.  The difference is the tool you use to produce it.  So my answer is no unless Metro feels differently.

Do pets' traits need to be randomized?

Can that even be done?  It would have to be in CAS because we don't choose traits when pets age up.  I don't think a pet's traits would be relevant for this challenge, anyway.

I'm planning to start with two pets, so I want to know if I have to randomize their traits or if I can choose them.

What exactly is the problem?  You can't use a cake on him or his life bar is frozen?


Go ahead and choose your pet's traits.  For this challenge it's mostly the heirs who have restrictions so that shouldn't be a problem.

Rica,did you and Metro come to a descion regarding the bugged schoolhouse.My own opinon is that the player should be allowed to count the opp.The opp was accepted and would have been completed if possible. I myself used edit town to replace the schoolhouse in my own game before starting in hopes of avoiding this problem,so many thanks to the forum member for bringing this to our attention.

We had and I thought I had responded but apparently that only happened in my head,  I'm so sorry for that Lady Orc.

Our decision was to absolutely count the opp since it was out of your hands.  Also, the night you age the child to teen or afterwards if it already is, try replacing the school in the hopes it won't be broken for the third generation's school days.

She is a Werewolf, and the cake does not work. I attempted the cake route when I got the notice that it was her birthday, but all she did was help herself to food from the fridge (even though she was fully satisfied) - no aging up at all. I waited two full SIM days after her '0' day, but nothing happened. I tried another cake, but the same thing happened.

And you did the resetSim option?

Tried that, and nothing happened. She just went to rock on the rocking chair. Then I thought 'Wait a moment...she's in her were form'. I had her transform back to human, and hey presto! She aged up.  ;D Maybe something to be noted in the guide? Unless it's there already, and I overlooked it....

Thanks Ricalynn, much appreciate it. :) I'll replace the schoolhouse as soon as the heir ages to teen, and hopefully that will avoid further problems.

@Tahilanor — after discussing everything surrounding your issues with Rica — the quadruplets, the early start before the Dynasty went live, the use of mods, and the life extension issue in werewolf form, I am asking you to restart your Dynasty from scratch. A big reason is the precedent we set with an earlier ruling in the DecaDynasty found here —

http://www.carls-sims-3-guide.com/forum/index.php/topic,5005.msg200232.html#msg200232

So, please if you are unclear about any rules before restarting, then ask lots of questions. Thanks.

(May be more wishes available for large numbers of stakeouts/fire rescues/renovations in Ambitions careers - didn't test this far)

Sports Agent: Earn §25,000/Earn §50,000.  (It's likely that there are similar wishes for the other 'social group' jobs.)

Metro,can we count the 5k have first child wish as one of the heir requirements even though you actually need to bring in the next heir in order to fulfill the wish. Obviously this would be the last 5k wish that the heir could complete. Or are all baby wishes out.
Saying that the see child do x wishes and grandchildren wishes are pretty much out as far as I can see.As they can only be complete after the next heir makes an apperence.

The way I see it is if you max two skills, at least one of which has additional wishes, that gives you 3; reach the top of your career is 4, and marry x gives you 5, with the money and venue wishes as fallbacks. That means you probably can't marry the non-normal being you become best friends with. It does help to have all the expansion packs, however, or at least Ambitions and World Adventures or Late Night.

Marian,I kind of have it all planned in my head but I do like to have a back up plan just incase. Can you imagine how annoying it will be if you just need one more 5k wish to bring in the heir and there it is have first child in your wish pannel.

Rica, PM'd me on this and I okayed it. It's a grey area because you need to accomplish the 7 tasks THEN the next heir can be brought in, but if the heir comes in and the wish is completed it's a simultaneous kind of deal. No biggie. :)

Agreed, I would like to be able to use the Have a Baby or Have First Baby as a contingency plan.  Have a Girl/Boy would be risky though as sometimes it seems the apples/watermelons fail to produce the desired result.

Right - should you not have all 7 things in place at the birth other than that wish - it's a failure to make HOF as you've officially broken the rules by not having all 7 things when the heir entered the house.


One thing that did come up is adoption.  Adoption is not an option.  It is officially banned for this dynasty.

-------

EDIT: But, if you have adopted before this ruling then the adopted child gets a free pass as Rica and I are making this ban a little late. Sorry about that guys (Metro)
