Great list! I hope they link it to the rules. You could add "Discover all Potions" under Logic for people who have Generations.

Thanks MarianT! The potions challenge is added to the list. I also like your list. It comes in very handy!

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.

Thanks Ricalynn! I see you have already linked it to the rules and added the potions one. Of course that is ok. I feel very honored! :)
Problem? Don't panic! There is always a solution. You just have to find it  :D

I've dropped another glitch that is making no sense to me. I've created my founder as a fairy in CAS, but when I drop her into Moonlight Falls, she's human. I've tried a factory reset, switching my game's language to English and back, clearing my caches and recreating her. Does anyone know the source of the bug, and may I please have permission to either use an elixir on her or try editing her in CAS as soon as I start a new game and see if I can get her to her fairy state? I have tried to get her in more than once and it does exactly the same thing every time.

As to the source of the bug, unfortunately I am clueless. Maybe Rica or someone else knows what's going on. But, yes, you have permission to do what's necessary to get your founder to a fairy state in Moonlight Falls. Now, if you'd start a new game in MF you'd be able to create a fairy no problem right? The issue is because you're wanting to bring in s Sim you have already created?

I'm just about to do some testing to see if I can get other supernaturals or fairies that I created without taking them out of the bin into Moonlight Falls. I saved my Sim with the randomized traits to the bin first as a fairy, then I set her appearance and clothes the next day after closing the game. That's the only thing I can think of that might have done it.

Edit: Libordo Virués the genie got into the game fine from startup, as did Honorina Ferrero the fairy. I'm not going to do any more testing, but my guess is that the bug was caused by me saving my founder as a fairy and then editing her, so if anyone else gets it that is probably why.

Edit2: I changed her to a human and back to a fairy in CAS to fix it, but I also had to edit her wings so they were the color I intended them to be again. She's a fairy now, so I hope it's all okay.

Edit3: Agh, it botched her lifetime wish as well (randomized it I think). I'm going to go in and change it and assume that cleaning up the changes caused by her loss of fairy status is okay.

I have another question... 

Founder completed his requirements and then had fairy triplets.  The triplets are now toddlers.  During the training and teaching, I have come to dislike one of them (poor combination of traits have caused significant refusing to be trained).  This particular toddler, Marina, is definitely not going to be heir so I am currently focusing on the other two, Riley and Ginette, to make a decision on heir. 

Can I go ahead and age up Marina to child, then teen, then young adult, and move her out?

As far as I am aware spares can be aged up and moved out whenever you want,but if you want to wait for either Metro or Rica to confirm that is up to you.

My interpretation also is I can age them up early, but I just wanted to confirm it.  ;D

That's fine and I am glad that you got it working for you.

Like Rachel said when it comes to spares there are no restrictions on aging up or moving out.

I think I'm encountering a glitch that I just wanted to share with you, and make sure it's okay for me to continue.  Everytime I save and quit, and then come back to my save file, my lunar cycle is reset to Waxing Crescent (2 days until full moon).  I can see how this might be a problem for a challenge file, but I am also getting zombies all day every day, regardless of whether or not there is a full moon.  If someone finds out a way to fix this without losing the file, I am willing to hear it, but I do not want to have to start over again for something that I can't control.  Please advise on whether I can still go for the HOF.

For the zombies - you have permission to use the Population Control to get rid of them to see if that will help with that problem.  MarianT is also getting the glitch about the lunar cycle resetting every time you load.  I have a glitch where occasionally it will be a full moon even though I set it to be waxing gibbous all the time.

Rica-
Population control doesn't give an option for zombies.  I'm stuck with them since I didn't buy the version that comes with a peashooter.  I can deal with them, I just wanted you guys to know it's happening, in case it would disqualify me.
I would like to ask another question here, and then I will also post it in another thread.  My fairy, Taryn, has sold almost $400,000 in the consignment store, but still has only an excellent reputation (not impressive).  I have never messed with the consignment store before, so I am wondering if she should be at impressive by now, or if I need to just keep going.  I have replaced the store a few times, and have been cancelling my consignments.

The two boxes disappear as soon as you quit or retire so they aren't actually something you receive as a reward.

No there is a special cheat that will get rid of zombies.  You can see my instructions on how to do so here.

It's a known thing that can happen with consignment store.  Just keep going and I think there are some threads about it under Ambitions.  I will look to see if I can come up with an answer for you.

Yep, the Consignment Store reputation can take a long time to finish and is bugged. I have had to sell close to half a mil of goodies to finally get the skill challenge to darken despite the fact that my reputation in the stats listing said I had already done so.

I added a wish to hazelnuts list.    My immortal dynasty just showed me that Donating §10,000 to undermine charity is another 5k wish.  I'm not sure about the good requirement because I don't have any of them in my dynasty :D.  But perhaps.

Donate 10k to undermine a charity. I have a house full of Evil Sims worth over a million, and none of them rolled that wish.

Every time  my Sims sleep they get a new wish to do something evil.  Sometimes they will roll the wish after making a bunch of money, too.

Wiry you could try donating to undermine charity a few times and see if that triggers the bigger wish. Or perhaps fullfilling smaller evil wishes will eventually lead to them wishing for bigger things.

So I had my ghost founder and her fairy husband give birth to triplets: two ghosts and a normal human. Is this a glitch that anyone knows of, or do humans just occasionally pop up for occults? Basically I'm worried that I won't be able to get my fairy heir.

Technically the human is your heir as there is a chance to become a fairy without being born that way.   And, yes, it's been brought up that occasionally you can get an heir that isn't an occult at all when the parents are both occults.

Oh, so I have to keep the human baby as my heir? He's already aged up to child and I didn't complete all the requirements with him... does that mean I've failed or can I try for a new heir, since I honestly thought he couldn't be an heir unless born that way?

The actual wording of the dynasty heir rule is that the first birth that results in a different life state than the current heir.  Which means a normal child is a different life state than your ghost founder.  I'll talk to Metro and see what he thinks about it.  Technically you would have failed but you didn't know it was the heir and he may make a ruling when it comes to normal sims.
