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.  ;)

Thank you for asking it!  I'm sorry I didn't mention the lamp before.  I haven't used one in so long that I forget about it's resurrection properties.   I blame the fact that my only active game file is an immortal dynasty where the lamp rez is forbidden.   Good luck on Gen 2's requirements!

He hadn't had any drinks at all. He had just got home from work and transformed to human for his birthday.
The other two age ups happened just as he got home.
I will check the traits tommorrow and see if they show in the panels. Will post to let you know.

Do old friends count for the best friend requirement? If not, is there a way to go back to best friends after being best friends?

As long as the relationship bar is still as full as it would be while you were best friends than you're fine.  Old friends just means that you've been friends for a very long time.

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?

I just had the same thing happen with my heir: her randomly rolled trait does not show up. Not even after restarting the game. She's one of triplets and the non-heirs (humans) got their third trait assigned by the game and those show up. I don't mind the third trait - slob - not showing up, but if we are supposed to have all the traits, should I use a cheat to add it?

And sorry about spamming the thread. I had a nice long simming session on a Sunday morning when the rest of the family was still asleep.

Yes, in this situation we allow the cheat to bring the trait back.

I just opened the game. The traits are still missing, so, with permission I will add them.
Thank you.

In game my ghost mother and fairy father gave birth to a normal sim. Would this sim have to be the heir or am I allowed to try again in hopes for a ghostboo?

The rules state that the first child born that's a different life state than the current heir is the heir for the next generation.  If you don't already have a normal Sim, I think you would have to accept this baby as the heir.

Okay thanks Pam. Just needed further clarification. Shame but at least she was a rainboo.

@Rica and Metro,I just want to check that it was okay for me to move in my heirs spouse even though my heir is still only a teen and he didn't ask her to move in his mum did.
I ask because of the wording the heir has to bring in a spouse to bring in the next generation,and technically he didn't bring her into the household.

Rachel, I asked Rica this and it's a no. We have to wait until the heir is ready to marry. I can't find the log, sorry.

Edit:

Me: Can I add her (next spouse) to the household as soon as my heir is born?
Rica: No.. heirs have ot be marriagable age

Sweetest Pea is right.   For the Life States Dynasty - the heir needs to be of marriageable age to bring in the spouse and this includes all potential spouses including the Imaginary Friends so you'll have to stay friends with them until you're a YA if you want an IF in your dynasty.

Oh dear that means I have failed. I guess I better go move the Smiths to the stories Graveyard.
Note to everyone do not take pain meds and Sim you will make very bad choices  :'(

Edit it might be an idea to put in the rules about the heir being of marrigable age before bringing in his or her spouse to be. It doesn't actually say it in the rules so it could cause some confusion.

Whoa, I'm so glad that this came up! I have very little experience of IFs (I've only had Generations for about a month or so), so will the IF grow up into a young adult with it's owner? Somehow I just thought they would vanish when the teen aged up if not made real, so the few times I've played IFs, I have always made them real as teens.

As long as you stay good friends with them, an IF can remain an IF and invisible for the entire life of your Sim.

Thanks, Rica, again. I would surely have made a mistake with an Imaginary friend later in my dynasty attempt.

Speaking if IF's, can an IF count towards the unique friend requirement?

Rica, Metro has already allowed Imaginary friends as exclusive best friends as long as you don't make them real. I already asked  ;D

As long as you have a high enough relationship with your IF, you can give them the potion as late as the elder stage.

Indeed, thank you for clarifying that point! I would not have thought of it and very likely ruined my dynasty right at the very end.
