Yes, I was aware of the rule about Edit Town not being used for any purposes other than placing EA-created lots but not that that couldn't be done after the start of the game.  If that's the case, I may have to restart ALL of them. :(

You mean all of your dynasties?   Since you did it in your Life States Dynasty to correct a known bug (serious lack of opportunities from combined rabbit holes), I'm ok with you continuing that one.   Please send a PM to me with the details about the other files you're referring to and I'll speak with Metro as soon as I can to get back to you about those files.   

Best I can do.

Thank you, Rica! I appreciate that.

For the other files, I had to think back and they're fine; I did it BEFORE the start of the game  with my DecaDynasty and Immortal Dynasty so I wouldn't have to go through the trouble of placing lots again. In my Life States folder, I don't mind not having Showtime venues or Late Night locales.

Fairies can't do anything to help that. The Auras are skill boosters, except the soothing one, it's a positive moodlet. when you do get a witch, however, my tip will be of more use  ;)

Thanks Wiry, I will try out the auras a little more. Skill boosters are always convenient. And I'll have an heir marry a witch as soon as possible :)

Also thank you TheTripWasInfraGreen and Ricalynn. I didn't know the game could turn any sim into a witch. I will be on the lookout for it.
Problem? Don't panic! There is always a solution. You just have to find it  :D

As long as you have them as allowed via the Population Controls, then they will appear at random.

Did you place them before or after your founder purchased their property?  Did you do them in addition to the combined rabbit holes or did you replace combined rabbit holes with single lots?  I need more details.

I guess it was finally my turn to encounter a relationship bug. And I think supernatural made it worse. My sim was suddenly romantic interests with her workmate. All I sent her to do was trade kitchen secrets! My only guess is that someone cast a love spell or something on her workmate, and she was the unlucky sim to next talk to her. Unlucky, because she already has a boyfriend! Does clean slate LTR remove boyfriend status? Or just romantic interests?

Thanks to both of you, I will do that.
I don't have a witch yet (obviously...) but I do have a fairy. Anything she can do to help? I am not sure what the aura's have for effect to be honest.

There is one witch available in town, but that's a women and so is my heir so I need a male witch. Or am I missing something and can 2 female sims also make a baby? (you never know...) Never tried it lol

Yeah, and fairies live practically forever, so you can wait a long time, no problem. My Founder's spouse was a Child at start of game. Boy, that sounds creepy.

Is there some kind of tips board for the Life States Dynasty? I know there is one for the Immortal Dynasty and legacies.

Clean Slate doesn't remove the status - you still have to break up with them.  It just removes all the relationship information that is stored in the scrapbook about that person with other people.

Not yet but there are a lot of people only on generation 1 or 2 so it's hard to say how many people would have tips regarding this dynasty type.

Would it be okay for me to start one? I find it easier to remember things as I go along rather than at the end.

No but that's because there is already one available now.  :D

Yep that sounds like a love charm.  Tricky witches.

 I don't think there's any way to tell if someone has it on them before you talk to them either  :-\

Just throw cure potions at the feet of everyone you know.  Tell them that it's the new way to greet each other straight from Union Cove. ;D

I just used this on my gen 3 when he got rid of his prom girlfriend. I wanted an older spouse so she wouldn't be around as long, the prom girlfriend had awful traits and I wanted to get the eternally faithful moodlet. He broke up with the first girl then did the Clean Slate. It dropped the romantic interest part with the new girl as well as the relationship info. I tried again with his new girlfriend that I had picked out. It dropped the relationship back to friends for her two prior romantic relationships. I had never used this reward before and now I'm going to use it quite a bit, I think.

Now I have to test if it removes the status if it's higher than romantic interest.

What about children werewolves? Since you can't cast spells on children, is there any way to get them to age up?

Potent cure elixers I believe work on children, you just have to toss it at someone.

Potent cure elixers I believe work on children, you just have to toss it at someone.

However, first you need to get permission.  Using potent cure elixirs on a life state is banned and disqualifies you from HOF status if you don't ask first!  Please be careful about the advice you give because if Frozen had just gone ahead and used a potent cure elixir on your advice.  You would be the reason he lost HOF status/failed because he never actually got permission from Metro or myself. 

Story Progression works to make sure that all the life states you want are in the game so you guys shouldn't have to resort to curing a child just to age them up.  While I understand wanting a very specific someone, I'd rather not just keep giving permission for you guys to cure the townies when it's banned.  There are at least 40 people in a town at one time.  More than one is bound to be a werewolf/fairy/witch/vampire as long as they are in your population settings.  If you didn't put them in your population settings, than that was part of your strategy and not a game glitch.

I was freaking out about the seven items for the mausoleum but then I read that upgraded items from the handiness were acceptable. So I could just buy 7 different items then have my founder upgrade them and then put them in the mausoleum, right?

Once my teen hits job level 3 at the graveyard, she can quit, correct? (I'd rather use those hours working on her skill challenges.)

Correct. The 7 childhood requirements are not like the 7 later ones that all need to be in place at the same time.

Funny, I never realized the requirements for kids are also the exact number of 7  :P

So this means a teen has to get on the honor roll, but doesn't have to stay on it?

I wasn't aware of the rabbit hole glitch, so I've already purchased my property. I don't want to have to restart.  :-[
