So does that mean the Al Fresco Street Market becomes the Festival Grounds with Seasons? I didn't realise that.

It doesn't. They're referring to a festival lot on the Exchange that Graham created for Monte Vista. The market is, well, a market.

Oh I see. Well that's cool. I didn't want to mess up that nice market anyway. I'd rather keep them separate.

I apologize if I've missed this somewhere, my GoogleFu is failing tonight (between migraines and getting sick, hurray).

Can I change my spouse's life state once they've produced the required life state heir? (IE: Fairy spouse being asked to Forsake Fae/Vampire spouse using the treatment from the science center)

If that's what you want to do - sure why not.  Or you could just move them out and never see them again.  Your choice really.

Special Note:
There are three lots that can be changed as per the Edit Town rules for Monte Vista.   Etruscan Park, Sunlit Stride Park & The Public Pizzeria are viable choices.   However, the festival lot made for this world is meant to go over the Etruscan Park so remember that if you choose to place the festival lot.

I have not tried this yet but I just had a thought:

As another way to avoid having the issues with children not getting their Honor Roll from too many snow days it could be helpful to invest in a Climate Control LTR and make it stop snowing while they are school age.

Again just a thought, I have not tested this or anything.

I'm giving this another try in Appaloosa Plains.

Regarding Edit Town, I've placed the Chinese Garden on a new lot, bulldozed the cat and dog parks where I put LN bars, placed the smaller cat and dog parks on empty lots, moved the junkyard across the street to a new lot so that I could put another LN bar on a larger lot in the same spot, and bulldozed Varg's Tavern in favor of another LN bar. Was that okay, particularly the dog and cat park switcheroos? 

If not, I barely started so it's no big loss.

You are not allowed to bulldoze lots that start in the game. The only ones that are permissible to be moved are lots from other expansions that the game placed not you.  Otherwise, everything remains the same.  So yes the cat and dog parks need to be put back and can't be changed without you having bought them.  Because the junkyard comes with AP, you weren't allowed to move it either.

Darn, I was afraid of that but I'm glad I asked before I got very far. Mixology was a backup anyhow. Thanks! :)

I'm in a confusing position right now. (Well for me it is confusing) In game my sims bought Eerie Park before the locations for Festival Grounds were released and since I can't have no seasons at all, I'd like to place the lot. Now, I just need to be sure that I need to bulldoze the Eerie Park that my Sims own and replace it with the festival grounds. Am I right?

Actually there is a way to learn the custom recipe bar drinks without adding the Late Night venues.  If you own venues like a beach or a park or a lot of other properties you can then upgrade them with a professional juice bar and some bar stools, a mixologist will show up and man the bar, and then you can learn the drinks.  You can also moonlight at them. 

Here is a link to the wiki http://sims.wikia.com/wiki/Mixology.

When you first started the game, it should have given you the option to place the festival lot.  Did you tell it no?

Holy bananas!  :o This is awesome, thank you! It looks like the citizens of Appaloosa Plains will be drowning their sorrows at the local fishing hole and other assorted places at some point in the future. This also means that I never have to try a shoehorn a 52x29 or similarly stupidly-sized bar into a town ever again, whether it's a challenge or not!

I was wondering what the policy on sims with no traits is? It's my understanding that sims short of a trait or several are left as is, but if someone was faced with a spouse with no traits such as a ghost in a WA location or certain towns' service NPCs, do they just have to live with a spouse literally devoid of personality, or are there exceptions?

This isn't something I'll have to face myself, but I was curious.

Spouses have to remain as is.  So if you choose a spouse with no traits, that's your choice and something you have to live with.

That's fine.  Just remember next time you have an option - a decision has to be made then.  You have a free pass this time to place the lot on your own lot or someone else in the game.  Just remember it can only be placed on an empty lot.

Is anyone else having problems actually obtaining an Imaginary Friend doll in this challenge?

(I'm specifying this challenge, because I completed my first Immortal Dynasty just after Supernatural, when generation 8 was already a Young Adult.)

I know the chance of receiving one is something like 75%, but I must be having astronomically poor chances. Generation 2 consisted of triplets; none of the sisters got one. Generation 3 consisted of twins; neither got one. Generation 4 consisted of triplets; none of the sisters got one. Generation 5 consisted of twins; neither got one.

I'm not overly concerned if I don't get an IF this round (I have back up plans), but is it just me?

(If it makes a difference, I'm playing in Lucky Palms.)

I haven't had a problem so far. My second gen got an imaginary friend.

Shirin,
I'm fully patched and playing in Lucky Palms. Almost every nooboo has received an invisible friend so far. Really bad randomizer for you so far?

my second gen and third gen's received imaginary friends, but none of the generations after that have. My family is about to bring in Gen 6. I didn't use IF for spouse of either of the gen's that received them and didn't make them real, and I am beginning to think that is why none of the generations after have received one.

My second gen plans on choosing Waylon Wolff as her spouse but he hasn't changed out of his werewolf form and he is currently a teenager. Does anyone know how I can make him return to his human form? I have tried a cure elixir and the mood let manager but neither have worked.

Did you try cure or potent cure? Potent cure you would have had to get permission for you to use because it's banned otherwise.   Cure Elixir won't do it.  Do you have a witch in the family?  A witch's sunlight charm can get them out of their werewolf form.

Sometimes werewolves will change into human form just by hanging out with your Sims.. are you inviting him over a lot?
