Will she live longer because she's a fairy? I know that YA and Adult fairies have extended lifespans but I'm not sure about Elders.

I know Vampires from Late Night didn't have the Elder stage extended, just YA and Adult.

Go get a potion from the elixir shop to turn them into a YA or give them a makeover at the salon.  But you cannot move them in until the heir is a YA and it has to be the heir that invites them in.   Remember that.  Can't be his mom, his sister, his father, his uncle or his monkey.  It has to be the heir.   

There are plenty of ways to extend someone's life that are available in this dynasty.

I didn't know that. Thanks Rica. :)

In case you don't know,  there is currently a huge bug going on with weddings where two people who don't live in the same household aren't getting the option to move in with one another.  All the buffs and wedding presents are appearing but the actual marriage/moving into a new household is broken.    Until I've heard more, just bear this in mind and move the Sim in before getting married.


Edit: This came with the new patch 1.42.

Hmmm, that is not so great, but did I just read correctly in the patch notes that the werewolf problem is fixed and they can turn back into human form? (Feral Change buff will now expire for werewolf on various lunar cycle settings.)
Yay! :)
Problem? Don't panic! There is always a solution. You just have to find it  :D

Feral Change is the one that makes them change.  The one where they turn themselves into a werewolf is just called "Werewolf!" if the werewolf I had yesterday is any indication.  So it may not fix the werewolf issue.

"Feral Change" is what happens to a werewolf when they are forced to change into werewolf form due to bad mood or full moon.  The name of the moodlet that is associated with someone changing into their werewolf form is "Werewolf!".  So while the moodlet "Feral Change" will now expire, that doesn't stop NPC werewolves from still transforming into their other selves and keeping their age stuck. 


Does that make sense?

Ah yes, thank you. As I understand it they can go in werewolf form in 2 ways, forced or by "werewolf!", but what triggers "werewolf!" and doesn't that one expire then? (since they are stuck)

The aging problem with werewolves is still ongoing. I started a new Dynasty in Moonlight Falls. It is now week 4, day 3 and the Wolff family is still the same. Gator did age from toddler to child just before the first full moon. Other than that, they are all still in the same age span as when the game began. Even Pappy is still alive!  ;D

On the other hand, can that also work the other way? Like have a werewolf in your household and let him live forever in werewolf form?

In a way but remember if it's an heir, you're not supposed to extend their life by any means and this includes having them in werewolf form.   We had one member fail their dynasty because the teenage heir didn't age on time due to werewolf form.

Doesn't cake solve that if you remember to give them the cake on time?

If they are in werewolf form, they can't be caked.  That's been a big issue since we started the Life States Dynasty was the fact that you couldn't age up werewolves in werewolf form.

I was looking at the list of wishes worth 5,000+, and I didn't see any for the Private Investigator profession. Was it just missing from the list, or are there really no big wishes for it?

There's probably the reach top of career wish, but I wouldn't know about any others.

I guess I'll have to see when I play. :P

Anyways, two more questions:

- Can a genie lamp purchased by one sim be used by another?

- When a genie resurrects a sim, do they come back in the flesh or as a ghost?

Only if the person who purchased it gets kicked out or dies, resulting in the contents of that person's inventory going into someone else's. The lamp cannot be transferred normally, or used by anyone in whose inventory it is not.

Where are you getting that from?     It's not against the rules to buy the lamp with a spare and then have an heir use it as long as it's the heir that frees the genie.   I have four lamps in the Grim Immortal Dynasty that have been passed around for the last 6 generations.  The wishes keep getting reset so the new Grims keep getting new wishes.   The owner of the lamps is most likely Apollo since it was his LTR and I know I bought at least two of them for him.  They still all work.

I've also stuck a genie lamp on the coffee table as an additional decoration.

They can also be placed on the wall shelves that came with Generations. And on dressers. And side tables. And dining tables. And the floor, for that matter.

Before rubbing it the first time, you can pass it around to its intended recipient. Marie in my Dynasty had like 60,000 LTHP, she bought two lamps and gave one to her mother (I buy so many of those that my household is worth over 1 Mil just by wishes.)

Thanks for all the info, guys. :D Cadmium bought a lamp some time ago, but the rule that spouses can only be moved in by their partner means that it has to be shuffled around a bit.

That's just what I experienced in my game. I didn't know if it hadn't been rubbed it could be moved.
