No, nine. Seven skill items and two career items.

Do plates of food count?

No.  The list of of items that do count are linked to from the rules.   And Chuckles is 100% correct.  It's nine items like I said.

And only then if you've gotten the OK from Metro or myself.  Remember that.

I think I got an OK but just in case...I've been waiting about three weeks for Gator Wolff to age up from Teen to YA, and he still hasn't. Is it okay if I Potent Cure him and age him up with birthday cake?

Try the cake and if it doesn't work (he resets because he's in wolf form) then cure him and cake him.


Wait.. Have you tried the Age of Instant potion?

I did try the cake, because I really prefer he just stay a wolf so I don't have to go get him bitten again. I also thought of Age of Instant, but when I tried to throw it at him he wasn't listed as on of the options. He only aged up to Teen because I caught him at a rare human moment and got him to a cake. I've been trying to do the same thing again but it has been too long, and I just don't think it's going to happen.

Stalk the school with an age of instant potion.  Just kidding.  Yes you have permission.  I just did some experiments as the Wolff family and could not for the life of me figure out how to make them human without doing it themselves/curing them.

That would be very Manly of me, wouldn't it? Haha Thank you. Yeah I wish I knew how to force them to change form. Randomly, Erica in my game changed back to human at some point and is now an Elder. Waylon managed to age up to YA. But otherwise, they haven't really aged.

So thank you! I will do that.

I haven't had this issue since I'm not working on this Dynasty yet, but would it be possible to use a Genie to enscorscle the Sim in question?

Hey, that's a actually a good idea, but I don't have a genie yet and I won't for awhile. The genie has to be living in your household, and of course I can't have one until I need one for a spouse. But yes, that would work, because when a Sim is ensorcelled it is as though you are controlling them normally.

I'm a little worried that my second generation won't get a school op in time (she's 3 days away from aging up, and only one day left of school). Considering that I'm in Moonlight Falls with the combined school/stadium and the bugs with it, is there anything for me to do?

Not unless you think you can get her into scouts  or ballet and get the op in the next couple of hours.   I would pray for the scavenger hunt Op to pop since it happens within the last two days of childhood.

Apparently she's too old for the after-school activities, and the Scavenger Hunt op didn't come up on her last day.

I'll be drowning my sorrows with coffee and chocolate in the corner. Do you have to randomize traits again for when you start over?

I'm sorry.  If you run out of chocolate, let me know I have lots of virtual chocolate ready for anyone to share with me. 

No you don't have to re-randomize traits unless you want to.  I would suggest an after school activity this time, even if you can't complete it, it could be a good backup.  My other suggestion would be to place a school on another lot.  Do you have town life?  They have this cute one available in the community bin.

I don't have Town Life, I'm afraid. Could I lift the school from another town if I must?

If you must, if you want to do it without the separate school and hope for better luck, that is also your choice.

I could be wrong about this, but aren't the schools/other town buildings in Build/Buy under Community objects? As in, you wouldn't have to go to another town and save the lot?

A school building and a stadium that's not combined won't fit on the lot.  You can't create your own lots so you would need to save a lot to place it.

They are and the one that came with Showtime fits on the lot that is already there and if you need the stadium you can always use another lot for that one.

There is a part I want to make absolutely clear. Replacing things within Edit Town without permission can mean you failed.  Don't just assume because someone else did it that you can, too.  Without permission, this means you did it and it was against the rules.  We may have changed our minds or found a different way to handle things when you experience your problem.

Edit Town is a very specific topic/part of the ruleset.  If in doubt, it's better to ask than assume.     Very soon the rules/FAQ will be updated with more specifics to help everyone along but for now it's better to ask before doing than to find out later that you've failed.

Okay, so I Cured Gator, but I don't know how to get him bitten now! I don't see an option for him to ask his mother, with whom he is best friends, to bite him or anything. I had them talk for awhile and she "thinks he is friendly." What else do I do?

You could always look for a wolf elixer.

See what the other werewolves in town can do. I'm assuming that the rest of the Wolff clan is around if Erica is. Try seeing if the option comes up when interacting with Dwayne or Waylon. In fact, try scouting out other werewolves to be sure.

Life-state-changing elixirs are banned for this challenge, or I would.  :-\

That is actually my plan, my game keeps crashing though so it's hard to carry out.

So I found a werewolf who had the option for Gator to Ask for Werewolf Curse! Maybe Erica's Lycanthropy skill is just too low. Anyway, my game crashed (again) and I am tired of restarting it, so I'll have to try again later.

I'm really stumped on the 5k wishes.. half of what I expected didn't pop (master fishing, catch all fish, learn all recipes).  Now I'm thinking you need to reach level 10 without reaching that magic number for those to pop.  Lesson learned? :-\

I switched her to self-employed, do they even get wishes to reach top of those careers?  The last one I got was reach level 7, then every time she gets promoted she either wants to quit or get fired, and she's even ambitious!

Her spouse popped all the own 5/7 venues, worth xxx wishes, but not a beep from her.  I swear they do that just to taunt me.

Am I allowed to do the marriage trick, ie. change spouse's name and marry them again? I don't really want to resort to that, but am so bored of waiting around for something to happen. Tips on getting wishes to pop would also be great.

Oh! I just thought of something. Can I resurrect family members? Since spouses and spares are allowed to come and go as they please.
