Very well, then I know it's not a bug and I'll just pick another skill in addition to alchemy, which was all I really wanted to know.

One more question: My same Sim keeps having his cellphone ring, and he can answer it but I don't get an Opportunity popup window. I suspect it's the Alchemy opportunity chain not triggering properly for some reason. Is there any known reason for what might be causeing this, or any way I can fix it? Otherwise I may just roll myself a new foundersim and hope for better luck next time.

Do you have Into the Future installed? That's a bug that's been happening in a lot of people's games. :/

Yes I do...that's annoying, I guess I'll just restart and hope the bug won't happen again.

You can't get it on land, I was trying to myself two days ago, ask about fish parts is the only way and you can only ask that underwater  :-\

Ahhh. :( Well thanks anyway.

Okay so after taking a break from this the challenges got me itching to try again, I understand we can't help a sim to die but I'm assuming not helping them to live is okay  :P

Basically I got the chance of a dehydrated mermaid ghost after Dallas passed out in front of the fireplace in his house, my sim was just on her way out the door having stayed over for the night and he must have got turned in his sleep as he went to bed with no scales but got up with them next day, I thought about throwing a bucket of water on him then decided it was too interesting to pass up the possible ghost so left for work, and of course his evil family just left him there for Grim  ::) But then technically so did I so maybe I'm the evil one.

But it means I now have the chance of a ghost mermaid heir assuming I didn't do anything wrong there, did I?

I restarted my challenge in Midnight Hollow, and it's going well so far. I love the layout of the town, but for one minor drawback - I can't find any deathfish spawners anywhere. Is there any challenge legal way to add them in? Otherwise I'll just have to struggle on without them and hope my sim doesn't die from old age before he makes enough money from fishing to qualify for a reward plaque.

Thanks Nutella, I thought I was okay but then I thought I was okay last time when I messed up, better to check these things.

I was just reading the ITF guides, I decided to use rabbit hole jobs for the ops and so have it installed, I noticed a comment about dream pod dreams permanently changing traits which reminded me of something I meant to ask before, if one of our sims rolls the unstable trait do we have to send them to hospital or do the paper bag thing so they don't change their traits if they are 'out of sorts'? I was sort of assuming we would have to as no trait changing is allowed but I don't see it mentioned in the rules, unless I overlooked it.

@Turoskel

Yes, if your sim rolls the unstable trait, you will have to do the paperbag or hospital so they don't change their traits.

I don't know if this has been asked already (can you search threads? :P) but...
For moving in a desired spouse: does it have to be done by the heir that is seeking marriage? (For ex: Heir 2 is a child and I'm trying to save a certain sim for them, so to prevent them from dying/having another relationship, I have Heir 1 move him in). Does this count as illegally adding to the household? Do I have to wait until the heir seeking marriage is of marriage age?

The heir themselves has to move their intended spouse in.

Edited because I was in the wrong thread and should not comment at 1am.

Okay lets try this again adding to what Trip has said the heir can only invite a potential spouse to move in once the heir is old enough to marry.

Also to add to what Trip has said you should only be moving in the heirs spouse once they have completed all their requirements not beforehand.

Rachel

They can't move the spouse in before they finish their requirements? I thought you could move them in whenever.

Okay another question, for some reason yesterday I failed to notice my ghost baby was also a witch, he still counts as a new life state though doesn't he? mother is a witch and father a ghost and he is both.

Because there is something new about his life state, he counts as being of a new life state.

Thanks Trip, I thought so but wanted to be sure, I had also already fed Dallas ambrosia so was a bit stuck if it wasn't the case as I now had no ghost father, guess human would have done but it's a bit boring compared to a dehydration ghost.

Alright, so a premise:

Say a sim dies on your lot. (Naturally, of course, like they were just old and died, or stupidly tried to fix something in a puddle...) That sim can later be resurrected as used as a spouse, correct? Or are they required to stay a ghost to be used? If resurrection is okay, using Ambrosia, how can the requirement that the spouse has to be the one to move them in count?

You can resurrect any sim that dies on your lot to use as a spouse, and you don't have to keep them as a ghost if that's not the life state you want.

As for resurrecting them with ambrosia, I'd play it safe and resurrect them another way and then feed them ambrosia once they're a part of the household.

Alright, thank you. If I use the Oh My Ghost opp, it doesn't have to be the heir to get it, does it?
