Two quick questions:
1. Do trophies from the gardening contest count towards anything?
2. Can Marry [First Name] be used more than once (for different generations) and still count, because each sim is marrying a different person, giving the wish a different name?

Thanks in advance!

Don't know the answer to the first one, but yes to the second one.

I had just found the answer to the second question on page 2, but thanks anyway. Good to check in case the rules changed.

Trophies from the gardening contest do not count because they are not part of any specific career. You can use them as decorations in your home though.

Thanks Jaymi. At least Tinkerbelle got the happiness points for it.

Is there some way to grab tombstones from community lots? I can only pick up the generic "remains" objects, but not the useful tombstones.

I think you have to befriend the resident ghost before you can pick up their personal headstone.

Your relationship with the ghost needs to be at the high end of 'friend', close to 'good friend', to get the option.

I received a gift from another sim and it was worth 75,000 simoleons, so I sold it. I just wanted to make sure that was ok.

That's perfectly fine.   Always nice to have rich friends!

Thank you for the quick response.  Also, my sim is going through a mid-life crisis and she has commitment issues trait and wants to divorce her husband. My sim is the founder, and they already had an heir who has aged up to a child already.  Can I divorce him?

Yes. There is no requirement for the spouse to stay in the household in the Life States Dynasty.

Do teen romantic interests have to be unique? And can two potential heirs of the same generation share a romantic interest (it matters to me since my third generation consists of triplets, two of whom are fairies and currently on even-footing for heirship)? Let's just say that I have my eye on a certain teen and I really hope that he can be a romantic interest and future spouse.

No they don't.   I was about to answer the other way around but that's what I get for doing Baby Boomers all day.  ;D

Hi, so, is there anything I can put into the mausoleum for a cook besides the skill certificate and fridge? Like, the seven items? Some level ten recipe books or something? Also, if an heir completes teh collection challenges, can they put some of those items into the mausoleum? I only ask because a lot of the items I've seen people use aren't in the base or supernatural expansion. On that note, could an athlete use different training tools (the strength trainer or treadmill) for their seven items? Thanks for reading!

Collection challenge goods aren't valid mausoleum items, since collecting isn't a skill (it just has challenges). Is there a second skill that your cook is doing?

The athletic thing won't work, because exercise equipment can be bought from buy mode and isn't a product of the athletic skill.

No, she's not because if she starts another skill and uses items from that skill, that closes those items to another heir and I don't have that many options. Logic's got no items, collection's a bust, so is athletic as the only gems I get are cut with a gem-cutter, and I don't think you get anything for charisma or music either.

So with the base game, you have handiness, painting, writing, fishing, and gardening as valid collections, as well as alchemy potions from Supernatural. I can see where this can cause an issue even if you planned it out for everyone to just have one product-producing skill.

I'll let the higher-ups handle this one.

With just the base game and supernatural, it is not possible to complete this challenge within the scope of the rules.   The other two dynasties are able to be completed with just base game but this one was specifically written with certain aspects in mind that meant that someone would need a certain combination of expansions to be able to complete it.   That doesn't mean you can't continue one - just means you would have to double up on something which would make it ineligible for HOF status.

The seven mausoleum items have to be the result of a skill - not something you can buy.  Which is why collecting is not allowed.   I can't remember the exact reason we chose to exclude cooking at this moment. (it's late please forgive me)  In my mind cooking dishes are the combination of produce (gardening) and/or fish (fishing).

Just to confirm, will I be fine missing Showtime in my dynasty?

Not having Showtime shouldn't be a problem. I think that as long as you have at least Ambitions and either Supernatural or Generations, you have enough different skills that produce items for the mausoleum. Those two expansions along with the base game should give you gardening, painting, fishing, sculpting, inventions, books, and either elixirs (SN) or potions (Gen). In my opinion, for this Dynasty the only real advantage of having Showtime is the Genie life state.

Yes - as long as you have enough of everything else ( skills that give items, jobs that give rewards and such) And considering the main thing Showtime adds is only three careers that could be used for job rewards, as well as the mixology skill, you should be good is you have most everything else - just write out the skills and number of skill challenges, and jobs that give rewards, and you should be good! (There are lists somewhere in this thread that show off job and skill rewards and I believe they're linked on the first page somewhere)

There's also the fact that you need a certain amount of skill challenges, and those can overlap.

um, so I've heard that mast thieves can steal things from work? If this is true, could I use those seven items for museum pieces?

I don't think so because the items need to be from skills directly.

Kleptomania is a trait not a skill.   As I said before, the Life States Dynasty cannot be completed with just the base game & supernatural.  I'm sorry.  The other two dynasties are possibilities though.

Ah, okay. I thought that master thieves could steal things without the klepto trait once they reached master status. Thanks for clearing it up.
