You should but that was before Supernatural came out and made things less certain for me.

If you wanted I could probably do a test for you but it would take me at least 24 hours.

I would appreciate that very much, thank you.

Just about! Thanks for explaining :) I, too, might just do the IF last to save confusion though :P

Remember that in order to qualify for HOF, you need to be fully updated to the current patch.  As of today, there is a new patch (1.39) that is specifically released to handle the zombie problems people were having by saving during a full moon.   This will not cure previous games but will work for all new save games.

Thanks for the warning, Rica. That will be nice to get ready of those ridiculous, ever-present zombies!

Re: the new patch: it says we can get rid of the zombie-spawning problem if we use Edit Town to save the household and start a new game. Are we allowed to do this if we happen to have saved during the full moon (d'oh!)?

No.  If you ask permission, you can then use the cheat to get rid of all the ones in your town and resave.  Perhaps that will help.

Boy, this is one hard challenge. I'm trying it out without Supernatural. My founder just does not seem to get those big wishes (she seems to get so few of the usual wishes, too, and sometimes has several empty slots in her panel). She's almost an elder now and has only fulfilled two 5000k wishes! But I'll keep on playing until the bitter end.

Anyway, I have a couple of questions, too:
- For toddlers: Reach level 3 in two skills through the use of books: I know a toddler can reach level 3 with the peg box and the xylophone and with books in painting, but are there any other skills you can do that with toddlers?
- Can two heirs max same skills/careers as long as neither of them claims the skill certificates or trophies as their required reward objects? Eg. one sim maxes logic through making elixirs and another through stargazing to claim only the different skill challenges.

Books cover painting, writing and logic.  Peg Box is Logic and xylophone is instruments but it only counts as one. 

Two heirs can max the same skills and careers if neither one is using those certs or career rewards yes.  but if you worry about skill challenges remember you can level up through books and leave all 5 skill challenges for someone else to do.

For the best friend requirement, are you allowed to have a foreign Sim (from one of the vacation locations) as your unique best friends? I haven't done so yet, but thought that that would be a good way to ensure that each best friend is truly unique.

Just remember that the best friend has to be a supernatural lifestate to qualify.I don't travel very much so I don't know how much chance there is of Sims from other countries being an occult life state.

To add to what Rachel said, I've never seen a tourist or been in another country yet where the locals changed into the supernatural so you may actually not find anyone that can be meet the best friend requirement.

Metro and Rica a minor argument has poped up in one of the story thread so I think we would all like to now : Are there any limit to how many kids your heirs can have?

Adding to the Household
• Your founder must bring in a spouse/partner to Try for Baby (adoption is not allowed) resulting in a different life state child than the founder. Generation #2 would then eventually need to bring in a different life state spouse/partner to Try for Baby and produce a different life state for generation #3. And on and on until generation #7 has finished his/her requirements. The heir has to come from the first birth that results in a life state that is different from previous heirs. In the case of twins/triplets of a different life state, you are free to choose the heir. You are also free to keep trying until you get an heir that is a different life state. No limit on the amount of spares allowed into the house as long as the current and former heirs never leave.  No other Sims are allowed to enter the house beyond spouses and spares. 


Which story thread?

No there isn't a limit but you have to earn the right to try for an heir and your heir should probably work on requirements immediately so they can keep the flow going. 


Edit: I found the story.

I am wondering why people would want to have any more children once the heir has arrived. To my mind spares cannot contribute anything to the family as it is the heir that has to do everything.

Just remember - completing your lifetime wish is a personal choice not a requirement.

I know, I just like fulfilling them if I can.
Eventually I will probably get a spouse with gold digger or some other unfulfillable LTW.

Edit: I found the story.

I'm glad it's not against the rules, I'd have to start over!
Personally, I just like having big families. But thanks to this dynasty's rules, you can move the spares out so you really don't have to wait that much longer to have new generations. Besides, my founder took over 12 weeks to complete her requirements, so I think I won't have too bad a problem of too much time and not enough space. I don't expect the second generation to take that long though!

IF and human get human child that can turn into doll - that's the heir.
IF and vamp get a human child that can turn into doll - that's the heir.
IF and vamp get a vamp child that can turn into a doll - that's the heir
IF/Vamp hybrid and Genie get vamp/IF child - not the heir.
IF/Vamp hybrid and Genie get a genie child that can turn into the doll - that's the heir.
Genie/IF hybrid and Jelly Bean ghost have human child that can turn into a doll - not the heir.
Genie/IF hybrid and Jelly Bean ghost have ghost child that can turn into a doll - The Heir.
JB Ghost/IF hybrid and Werewolf have two children Were children who also can turn into a doll - Either can be heir/player's choice.

Because it's an overlay, it counts once if it's an IF plus something else. Beyond that the something else always has to be different.

Did that make sense?

You can no longer guarantee that an IF will have IF children.  I have done extensive testing over the last two days.   It also looks like unless you have a ghost & IF couple, most children are usually only one occult type.  Ghosts can still be an overlay of other occults and ghosts can have human children.   I tried several versions of couples that included both a ghost and/or an IF.  So there is a good possibility that the IF trait will not transfer all the way through a dynasty.   

Another point is that life state changing elixirs and potent cure elixirs do not work on ghosts or IFs but will on other occults.   Remember life state changing elixirs are banned from the Life States Dynasty.

My founder's spouse finally died (he became 107 days old). I need to have a ghost baby now. Can my founder try for a baby with him when he comes haunting or do I have to wait to be able to resurrect him with the 'oh my ghost' -opportunity?

For the Consignment Store, can you count the Impressive Reputation Challenge when it says you have it even though the challenge doesn't register?

Rabbit just got a Wish to Donate 100 Spirits to Science and that is worth 5,000 LTHP (No Ambitious or other LTHP Increasing Effects). She's only got 48 so far..  At least it counts previous Donations though! Lol.

You can try for baby with him when he comes haunting that's fine.

It will register eventually if you keep at it...it's bugged as I am sure you already know. But, that's fine if you want to count it when it only lists the top stat as Impressive.
