No not at all I am saying that the heir should be the one to free the genie. A genie lamp can be passed to different Sims. One of the requirements is that the heir is responsible for bringing his or her spouse to the family.

Metro & I discussed this before and we're of the same mind as Rachel.    Genie lamps can be gotten from several places and can be passed between Sims without any issues.  However, only the heir who is going to marry the genie is allow to free the genie. 

Also here's something to not do:    Founder gets a genie lamp and makes the genie her best friend for requirement.    Second generation ignores genie and lamp.  Third generation is going to use the genie in the lamp as spouse becomes best friends with that person over time.     Third Generation has removed a requirement of Founder.    Dynasty is failed.

Could someone answer my question on the previous page? I can't start my new dynasty until I know the answer.

Patience padawan.  Such things need to be discussed and we're all on different time zones and it's a weekend when we all have different priorities/family concerns.

Oh sorry  :)
I just thought that it had been missed because someone posted a question after me.

Ok here's the rundown of what Metro will allow when it comes to restarts:

If you choose to reuse someone - traits & LTW are not allowed to change -- UNLESS you're using a spare where you got to choose the traits.  If you chose any of the spare's traits, that spare has to get a complete reroll of traits.  Just one click of the dice and no more just like if you were starting with a founder.

As for life states - founders of a Life States Dynasty can change their life state as long as they do it before their requirements are finished.     This means that you must start the file EXACTLY as  you were previously and then if you want to be something else, find a way to make yourself that life state within the restrictions of the rules.

Regarding the looks - Metro's ruling is that you're not allowed to change the look of them -- period. He is the Challenge Board God and we do what he says.  So if you truly want to reuse that person, then don't change anything.  Don't be the person that adds freckles or a birth mark and says it's a new founder when we all know that cosmetic changes like that don't actually make a difference.  It's the same person - they're just spotted now. 

Any questions?   8)

So if third generation wants a genie spouse, use a different lamp?

Only if another generation used the genie as a best friend.    If they weren't used for a best friend requirement then keep the lamp.

Another Patch 1.42 problem, I think

I've been trying to move out two spares (I've tried both 'kick out' and 'move out').  The game just freezes completely - I've been trying for the last four hours (several attempts and restarts)!  Please can I go into Edit Town and move them?

Also, is anyone else having problems with birthday cakes on the new patch?  I've had one normal birthday but all of the others have led to resets and unusable cakes (the Sims still age up, they just can't eat the cake - so it's only a minor problem).

In the time I was able to play before my game stopped working, I was able to use several birthday cakes without issue.  I only ever used the birthday cake mid day though.  Are you using them late at night? 

In between the game freezes, did you clear cache files?   Also, if you're having freezing doing the move, you could very well freeze during the Edit Town way.   Are you getting crash logs or are you having to hit Ctrl+Alt+Delete to quit the game?

The birthday cakes have been at various times of day - in fact, the one that worked and one of the ones that didn't were at the same time (well, one right after the other).

I use a batch file to clear caches every time I start the game.

I'm having to Ctrl+Alt+Del out of the game.

I keep having to Ctrl+Alt+Del too! And that hadn't occurred to me, but I have three spares I was planning to marry out and that won't work with the new patch now, will it? Grrr, I am not happy with my game right now!

Oh but on a separate topic, you mentioned before that I need more RAM for my game to run and save properly. If I allocate more memory to RAM will that work, or does it have to be physical RAM? My husband says we can allocate some of the hard drive memory to be used as RAM.

Rica is your game crashing too? I've heard a lot of that since Supernatural.

One more wish to add to the list, your sims can get a wish to detonate 100 objects - the base value for that one is 7 500.

Is that with the Grow a Perfect Garden LTW or without?

The Writing skill and/or LTW comes with a million 5000+ wishes, mostly ones about writing ten/twenty-five/forty novels. If I recall correctly, I think Write a Masterpiece was worth 10k or so. Whoops, just got it again but it's only worth 3,750.

Mixology also has a few big ones, but I don't remember what they were since I'd already gotten all my wishes done by the time I started that skill.

I've seen it worth as much as 17,500 - I think that's with ambitious and grow a perfect garden.

Said sim (Perenelle from my  Immortal Dynasty) had the LTW, but not Ambitious.

Can I use the Youth Again Potion on my founder if they're an elder?
 And can ghosts die of old age? LOL

Ghosts do disappear, although there's no Grim, and the camera doesn't focus on them. No mourning either.

As long as every single other requirement has been fulfilled, yes.

And can ghosts die of old age? LOL

They disappear into the aether after a while, or so I've heard.

I got a popup that told me that a ghost in my neighbourhood had returned to the netherworld and could not be brought back again.

Am I allowed to get human spares turned into supernaturals? I have three human spares running around, and I want them to get in on the werewolf fun that the heiress gets to experience (obviously, I'd have them get bitten and get turned the old-fashioned way). I'll live if it's not allowed.
