I'm playing in Moonlight Falls, and so far things have been going very well. However, now that my second generation is nearing the end of Child stage, I've come up against a problem. I'd counted on the afterschool ceremony being a guaranteed Opportunity, and I got the prompt to attend ballet recital all right. However, the option to do so simply isn't there when I click on the schoolhouse. Apparently this is a known issue in Moonlight Falls which I wasn't aware of. My question is this: If I don't get another Opportunity, can I count the recital anyway, since it's through no fault of my own that it's not working properly? I'd hate to fail the challenge due to a bug.

Edited: Apparently it's a bug that can affect other neighbourhoods as well, according to a thread I found on official forums it's caused by going on a field trip, which I had done before it happened. Another bugthread says it's caused by the Moonlight Falls being combined rabbithole with the Stadium though, and that putting in two singlepurpose rabbitholes can fix it, so not really sure what's what.

Currently my Spouse is not an Occult and I'm just checking but can we use the Elixr Potions to make them into Occults?

Does reading the skilling books to toddlers (writing, logic and paint) count as part of the level 3 requirements? And let me tell you, potty training, teaching talking/walking to four toddlers is sheer chaos! lol

So, if the riding skill certificate is bugged, will you let us count it when we reach level 10?  Or do I need to go and find my founder a new career?

Yes, reading the books to get the skill points for a toddler is fine.

So, if the riding skill certificate is bugged, will you let us count it when we reach level 10?  Or do I need to go and find my founder a new career?

No, if the riding skill certificate is indeed bugged then give yourself credit when you max the skill for that career object you should have received.

The schoolhouse bug is definitely still going strong. I guess before next generation I can replace the school, but unfortunately if I do it at this point I'll lose the grades and won't be able to make the honor roll. So, can I count the buggy ballet recital opportunity if I don't get lucky and have another opportunity spawn?

I'm waiting for Metro and I to both be caffeinated and awake so that we can discuss this problem.  I promise we're going to get back to as soon as possible.

No which is why the rule states regular wishes versus just saying wishes.

Are we allowed to start with pets, or only the Founder?

Okay. I assumed it'd work like it did for the Immortal Dynasty, but I wanted to double-check. Thanks!  :D

Is this challenge able to be completed with only the Base Game installed, as with the Immortal Dynasty? I have most expansions so really I am just curious. You would have a whole lot of ghosts!
I'm noticing that with only base game, there are not enough available skills that produce items that can be used as the 7 required items for each generation.

Right. You need more than the base game for this Dynasty. There are not enough different types of ghosts in the base game and I felt the number 7 was so crucial to the whole theme of this event.

777 Unluckiest number in existence.

For a vampire Heir, can we use Immortal as a unique reward even though it extends life before we're technically allowed to?

Thats what I figured. I think with Base Game + one or two others it is doable.

Once you complete all 7 requirements, then you can extend life for an heir however you want to. So, just make that reward the last thing you have to do for your vampire and then you would qualify for it anyway.

@Metro and Rica,do you have to be best friends with your supernatural best buddy when you bring in a new heir or do you just have had to have a supernatural best friend at some point.

@Rachel — here's the relevant rule. I put in bold the take home message:

Spouses/partners of heirs are free to come and go in the Dynasty house, as well as spares that did not turn out to be a different life state. However, heirs cannot be moved out. You may not bring in a new heir until the current heir accomplishes the 7 key things listed below. Important: these must all be in place concurrently when it’s time to add an heir.

So, if all 7 requirements are in place at the same time, then you can bring in an heir.
