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.

There are ghosts in all three locations (which is also another solution to my problem with the lack of adult starvation ghosts in Twinbrook).

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

Thanks, Metro, that's what I thought, since the rules don't say anything that the spouse has to be living in the household as in the other dynasties. Just wanted to make sure. This will hopefully make things a lot easier.

There are mausoleums at the three locations but not supernatural occults.  There are no households with living ghosts as a part of them is what I meant.  Ghosts that aren't in your household are currently not showing on the relationship panel for a lot of people so how would you know if you were still best friends with them and because they are dead at the mausoleum, you can't exactly call them up to keep the relationship alive.

For the 5,000 point wish list:  See [childname] become a [career].  Worth 5,000.

That wish wouldn't work because you can't have children before you finish your requirements and the wishes are a part of that.  So you would never be able to use it.

I know, I was just giving it for a more complete list of the wishes.

Referring to my previous question: now that my founder had a ghost baby with her dead spouse, I suppose that I can interpret the toddler requirement 'Be Best Friends with both parents' meaning that the toddler only has to be best friends with the living parent?

It's already in my list.  In fact, the criminal one is huge (20K even without ambitious, if I remember correctly) and the medicine one is 7.5 or 10K.  The science wish is often smaller, though - depends on the parent's job and/or traits (not quite sure which).  Not that it matters for the requirements.  Might be useful if you're saving up for extra rewards, though :)

On which subject, can an heir buy more than one of a LTHP reward object (e.g. motive mobile) and pass them on to other family members, as in the Immortal Dynasty?

Yes as long as it's just the one person buying multiples, then it's still unique.


Tipi - I saw your question but I'm waiting to talk to Metro about the answer.  I know what I would say but this is something we haven't discussed so I want his opinion.

Metro and I talked it over and we both believe that the requirement says both parents and that means both parents whether they are alive or dead.    Heirs who only have one living parent would have a very distinct advantage over those that had two living ones.

Question about my Gen 2's Prom date.
His date aged to YA. The scenario played out:she asked him to go steady(he said yes) they shared first kiss. He was voted Prom King.
Does this count as a romantic attachment? Or should he find another one?

As long as he is still a teenager and she is considered his romantic interest, then yes it still counts.

My founder's contribution to the family mausoleum is seven plants. They keep going barren! What do I do, just keep replanting them?

You could leave them barren in a place no one can go to remove them or you could change it to 7 pieces of produce from those 7 plants and i would still say you were ok.

Okay, I'll do the produce. The barren plants are too sad. Even though those Gothic planter bowls look cool in my mausoleum. Thanks Rica!

Thanks. That was a hard ruling. I think that then I'm clearly going to fail my attempt, since I can direct neither the child or the ghost parent to interact with each other. And it may well be that the ghost does not even come haunting during the week of toddler stage. So I think it's quite impossible to reach even friend let alone best level status within these conditions.

There are several ways to get a ghost to join your household after it's been dead.   If you had asked us prior to the spouse's death, we would have given the same answer and then maybe you would have been able to have the spouse prepare ambrosia for himself or earn the philosopher's stone.  You might still get the Oh My Ghost opportunity so I wouldn't give up hope yet.

I don't have Supernatural, so Philosopher's stone is out of the question. And it has been several weeks since the spouse died and Oh My Ghost has not come up.

But would it be possible for her to remarry some other supernatural guy and have an heir with him?

Your founder has already had a child with another person that resulted in a different life state, correct?  If that is the case then you already have the heir for that generation.  So it is that heir that needs to complete the requirements.

My Gen 2 heir just grew to YA. The new random trait does not show and one of his other traits has changed. In total there were 3 birthdays on the lot today and the last trait for all the sims does not show in their panels.
May I use the cheat to fix this?

Now I came up with another suggestion: what if the spouse was resurrected back into human form? His old genie lamp with unused wishes is in the founder's inventory. As far as I can see, there's nothing in the rules that the spouse has to stay a supernatural character after the heir is born, is there?

Did you try restarting the game to see if they show up first?  As for the trait change, did your Sim drink any drinks that come from mixology because sometimes that changes traits for a Sim?

That is a perfectly acceptable way to handle the situation.  Go for it.

Oh, that was a relief! Thanks Rica.

And I see my question made the FAQ. It makes me very proud that I came up with a question no one had thought of before.  ;)
