Completing all the tasks gives the heir/founder the right to use the young again potion.

Anyone know a way to spawn the Max Logic Wish? Rabbit has a full bar but has yet to max Logic and I'm waiting desperately for this Wish because it's delaying everything else.. Lol.  :P


The only way I was able to force Artie to get it was when he hit level 10 of his career it popped.

Just wondering but since this is looking to not be going very quickly. If Rabbit becomes an Elder before she completes all her Requirements can she use a Young Again potion to be able to breed or does it have to be done before the Elderhood?

This is covered in the rules under the "Extending Life" portion at the bottom for anyone else who reads this. 

Yes, he (Llyr Fayh) is. Thanks! I've bookmarked that particular post, for future reference.  :)

Don't have to bookmark it - there is a link to it from the rules which change sometimes so you should always double check them whenever you have a question.   There is a reason I asked Metro if I could put in a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) post so that you always know to double check the post before asking a question.

If there is something that you think should be in the FAQ and isn't there, just PM me to tell me and I'll look into getting it there right away.

Thanks for all the info and tips!
I am gonna try this challenge too. Although I just got SN and I have not played with any of it yet plus I am afraid I'll fail, but at least I have tried then, right? :D
I just rolled the dice for the traits and got: natural born performer, excitable, unlucky, star quality and loser...! I really, really wanted to roll the dice again... but I didn't. Maybe it will be fun to play a sim like that. ;)

Anyway, I was wondering... is there a list with all possible skill challenges maybe?

The skill challenges can be found on the skill pages as a part of Carl's Guides.   They are the text that can be found in the skill journal that you can complete to get new advantages.  Like the athletic has three skill challenges - 1 to not be fatigued when you do strength workouts, 1 to not be fatigued when you do cardio workouts and the last one may help you live longer.

Thanks for your quick answer!
Yes I know that, but I was just wondering if somebody had put a list together of all possible skill challenges. That would make it easier for the planning. Maybe I'll make one myself then. If anyone else is interested, just let me know.

Another question: is it allowed to have the death flower in the inventory?

After your heir has completed all the requirements, you may keep a death flower or use other life-extending techniques.

I've run into another snag, this one is with the butterfly collection skill challenge.  The challenge is to find all 10 different types of butterflies, and I've found all of them except moths. 

I researched it and found that moths are supposed to be the most common type, and are usually found around graveyards.  So I've been watching my graveyard in Moonlight Falls morning, noon and night trying to spot one, but no luck.  I've also been doing daily checks all of the other butterfly spawn points that I know of, but still no moths anywhere.  Unfortunately I need this little bugger for my founders' sixth skill challenge :(

I've gotten moths quite commonly from a witch's conversion Ritual if that's any help.

Yes I'm playing a witch and I've seen them through conversion also. But unfortunately when you turn something into a moth it appears already in a terrarium, not flying around, so there is no option to "catch".  I tried placing the terrarium into my inventory, which does put the moth in there, but when I check the skill challenge journal it hasn't counted for the moth requirement. :(

Is there an option to release the moth? If so, might you catch it after?

I have found moths across from the Gypsy Camp near the yellow sign and near Varg's.

After reading this I have been checking the Gypsy Camp and Varg's several times a day and night along with the graveyard, still not a single moth.  I just think this is really odd since it's supposed to be the most common butterfly. 

I wanted to see if anyone else was having this problem, and there are a couple of threads on the Sims Forums with people not being able to find moths within the past few days.  Is there any way I can get them to spawn with a cheat, and would this be allowed in this case?

I believe that butterflies (moths) only spawn in the daytime.  At night mine all de-spawn and only fireflies are out.

Most cheats are not allowed.  I'm going to try a new game and see if I can them to spawn for me again.   Then I'll see what Metro thinks.

Odie - That list is beautiful.   I will be linking to it soon from the rules/FAQ.   If you want, I'll add the potions one myself as soon as I get the name of it from another file.

Wow, this is hard! But it is fun.

My first attempt (which will be followed by at least one more) got me a handy, nurturing, perfectionist, heavy sleeper supernatural fan. I immediately put her in the firefighting career. She got burgled by Robin Steal (hehe) on the second day, and making friends was difficult due to her ghostly nature. Things got progressively slower because everyone she did meet would initially think "yikes, a ghost!" and then of course they all got the memory for seeing a ghost.  ::)

I abandoned the attempt when I got a bugged job that wouldn't end after giving up and going home, which usually works to end a bugged job, even though it lowers the experience bar - it was also the same building disaster she did (and completed) the previous day. As I quit, I realized that I probably could have quit and rejoined the career, but she hadn't really made much progress at all in her skills due to the game lag and low needs. Had I known better, I would've started going spouse shopping/cultivating immediately while waiting on joining the career, and also started her off with a cat to help with her LTW (The Zoologist - I haven't seen any animals so far). I also would've kept her outside so that I could afford a nice bed.

Anyway, I'm going to restart with the same sim (different traits of course) when the memory patch for Seasons comes out. That way it'll help with my other dynasty too.

The way I understand it is that 5k wishes have to be completed BEFORE you can bring in the next heir right?

If that is the case then how do all the 'Have a baby/Have a girl/boy' etc wishes count? Because they wouldn't be fufilled until the moment the next heir is born not before, this would mean that if you were relying on one of those for one of your 5k wish requirements, you would be completing it at the same time as the heir is born not before. Wouldn't this automatically fail you?

So how do the various 'Have a baby' wishes qualify then? Can someone please explain? Thanks.  :)

Metro said it was acceptable because the moment the heir joins the house is also the same moment that you're completing your requirements.  So you need to have everything else done before getting pregnant and then those wishes will count but only if they are your last requirement needed. 

It's down to timing.  A baby wish is fulfilled as soon as the window pops up to name the child.  The child doesn't actually join your household until after it's been named and given traits so technically the wish requirement was achieved prior to the heir being born.

Like Silverbella, I have not had any moths in my game lately. At least in a couple of different games my sim kids have had the butterfly bonanza -challenge and they have not been able to complete it because no moths have ever spawned.

I don't have Supernatural and I have not downloaded the latest patch yet, so at least that is not causing the problem.
