Quick scenario here;

I have all life states turned on except for werewolf, and I want my witch founder to marry a werewolf. I'm starting in Moonlight Falls, but what I wanted to know is if anyone knew if with the werewolf lifestate turned off, will my founder have wereboos, or will there just be normboos and witchyboos?

Far as I know, your founder will be able to have wereboos, but there will be no other werewolves generated in game. I could be wrong, but that's what I see happening (especially since story progression doesn't bring townieboos around).

That's what I think, too.  The game should still produce a baby werewolf from the parent, but the original werewolves at the start of the game will be all there will be.

All I would really need is the wereboo heir, then I don't have to worry about glitched aging for spouses in life state dynasties, and my immortal dynasty won't have glitched aging townies there either, which on the whole. makes everything a lot easier.

Thanks for answering Shirin, Auntie Pam.  :)

Hi and welcome to the forum!

1) I don't recall exactly where I saw it, but I do recall a ruling that the acquisitions are not counted as career rewards, so it'd be the certificate and the fox. Since it wasn't given to you as part of the career, it was just your share of the loot.

2) I believe all of the dogs would need to come with him, but - how many cats is "several"? Remember, you can have up to 8 Sims, and up to 6 Pets, so long as the household total does not exceed 10. So if you already have 4 cats, you'd have an issue with the dogs.

Thanks!  ;D

1) Haha okay. I'm sure I read that at some point and promptly forgot it, since I hardly ever use the Criminal career. It's not really an issue anyway, I was just curious.

2) Three kitties, but I was planning on mating for baby meowfaces soon. Plus I have a problem with just putting pets up for adoption; I tend to get attached quickly, so even pets I don't particularly like end up sticking around forever/until I can move them out with a spare. I really wish we could adopt them out to other Sims instead of sending them into the adoption void. :'(

ETA: Maybe I'll just wait a few days to bring in the spouse, then. It doesn't take too long for the pups to disappear, right? *crosses fingers*

It shouldn't take too long for them to get adopted out.   Of course, if you want to speed it up - couldn't you just adopt one from the spouse to be and then put it up for adoption yourself before the attachment forms?

It just makes me sad to put them up for adoption. I know they're just little pixel pups, but still. But no worries, it's been a couple of Sim days now and I think they should be gone..

Oh, and another question: Say you've completed all your tasks and you bring in the heir and life goes on for your little clan. What happens if a burglar comes and steals some of the things in your mausoleum from your completed generations? And then *gasp* gets away with it? (I have a bad habit of wandering away when my game is loading and coming back to discover that several hours have passed while I was gone. And since that's just me being stupid and not a glitch, I'd have to live with the consequences.) Can you just replace the replaceable things (skill items)? And I don't even know if burglars steal things like skill certificates or job rewards/trophies, but if so, what would you do about that? Or would you have failed?

I've already got my little security alarms all set up, but just on the off chance something happens.  ;)

But wait, do we actually have to be able to get into our mausoleum? Can I just build a basement, throw all my necessary items in, and never add stairs?

The set up of your mausoleum is completely up to you.    I would say do everything that you can to prevent a burglar from being able to enter it if you want your Sims to be able to. Should it happen - come back to us and the challenge board team will figure out the best way to handle it.  Don't forget about lockable fences and doors.  Whether it's in the basement or somewhere else, I always put my items in a room with no doors just windows.  This way they are still viewable in a way but no one can get to them and mess with them.

I have all my stuff for my Immortal Dynasty in a basement that no one can access at all.  If you insist on being able to have your sims access it (Your Mausoleum), then put a Bonehilda or two in there so they beat up burglars. Alarms also help, one on your front door. Also: Genies can banish them as far as I know. GENIES!

Okay, so my heir is one day away from her teen birthday, and she got a school op from ballet. How am I supposed to complete it, though? There isn't an option at the school/stadium building to attend the recital. At what time should I send her over, if I can at all?

If she ages up on her birthday, she has to do it before 6PM. It's a full moon that night, and she's a werewolf. Wish me luck.

Is this a combined school that you're going to?  Sorry it's late and I've been trick or treating for like 4 hours. 

If it's a combined school, then there is a high probability you'll never be able to complete it.   If it's not, you should see the little blue map tag with the white star at the school that is hosting the recital.  It should be able to click it during the hours right after school. 

Doh - just noticed you said school/stadium building.  Yeah you're not going to be able to complete it.  It's part of the combined rabbit hole bugs.  Go ahead and count it if you can't get it to work (you can always try!).  You also have permission to place another school in town for her to attend high school and for the next heir. 


Speaking of this bug, has anyone tried it in a new game in a new town to see if it's still going on post patch ?

Alright. I wanted to stick it out with the Moonlight Falls rabbitholes because they're really gorgeous looking, but that might not work. I'll try my best with it, and place a new school in town as well. Thanks Rica. :)

It's fine to place a new lot for the school (and nab one of the schools from another town), instead of buying a lot and placing it there, right?

Yes you have permission to do that just this once.   Although, purchasing a lot and putting the school under ground would still leave the town beautiful but offer you the chance to actually survive the challenge.

Sorry if this has been asked before, but gen 2 was a ghost and gen 3 is a fairie, but also a ghost. Can I give gen 3 ambrosia when he's a child to cure his ghosty problem, or should I leave him as is until he gets his requirements finished?

Ambrosia can extend life - even if you do it on their birthday, it's still considered a life extending technique so it's something that can't happen until after they've done all their requirements.

My founder has been dating David Pok for several sim weeks. She/I have been working on her requirements and we are finally finished. She is 4 days from elder.  What with one thing or another, she could never get him to visit her at home. Today he just showed up. We wasted no time and got right to the socials to get him moved in. The option never appeared! I got them to go steady and then engaged. Still no option to move in.
I know the move in option is viable in my game. My sim has turned down 4 offers since she moved to Moonlight Falls.
My question is: can I use edit town to move David in with my sim? Or is there another way to do it? I don't care about the money that he would bring in a normal move in situation. My sim is quite rich and doesn't need his money.
Oh, and can I go ahead and let her drink the young again potion?

If she is done with her requirements, go ahead and use the potion since it's allowed.

You're using friendly interaction to get the move in option right?  You have to be using only friendly interactions, no romance options to get the "Ask to Move In"  It usually comes when I'm around the "thinks So&So is sociable".  Get some of the other Asks out of the way like, your day, your alma mater, your job if you haven't already.  Just remember to stay in the friendly interactions.

or my Life States Dynasty, I plan on having one of the Skill Challenges my founder completes be the Master Chemist one, where you discover all potions. (Will also provide a Wish worth 5K so I can get two things out of the way at once!) But t Anyway, I noted the rules about skill certificates and in order to do that, she'd need to master Logic. Since her career in the Culinary field doesn't involve logic, could I still use the Logic skill certificate for a different heir?

Only as long as your founder never actually maxes logic, and your logic heir never touches the master chemist skill challenge.

No, no, no. You absolutely cannot. Please note here:

Eisande, the career objects you use must be unique to each heir. If your founder maxes Logic, then no heir can use that skill certificate as a career related object.

I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that ratchie (Rachel) will be given the same special title as Ricalynn effective today, Challenge Board Assistant. Rachel just loves the Tournament and all the Dynasties (she is after all the Dynasty Queen ;) ) and will be a huge help to the team. And that's what it is now, folks--a team effort. For nearly 3 years it's been me, me, me and while I have enjoyed that responsibility, the popularity of the events, the size of the forum population, and the reality of responsibilities I have elsewhere has made it such that I need help. And both of these ladies are awesome and I could not ask for better.

Congrats, Rachel.

Welcome Rachel!  Our trio is now complete.

Just remember - Don't go to different parents in hopes of different answers!  If I tell you no, the answer is most likely going to be No from Rachel & Metro too.
