You need to open the cheats console and enable testing cheats (Ctrl+Shift+C then "testingcheatsenabled true").  Next shift-click on the child, Object, Delete It.  Easy as that.

Thank you very much ... I need to explore "testingcheats" a bit more, obviously!

Our other 'surprise gift' Time Machine child, in a different household, causes no trouble at all and is a hard-working little paragon of virtue!

I haven't started an inventor sim yet, I've only just been experimenting with Ambitions. As I got it two days ago. But so far it's nice. I'm improving the sculpturing skill, so that I can finally get some ice sculptures in the little family museum. x]

But I'm eager to create an inventor sim now, all this time-machine talk makes me all happy and curious! C:

Well, sometimes an unexpected child from the Time Machine just can't happen.  Like once I was playing a tournament challenge and a child came out of the Time Machine.  The rules specifically stated that no other Sims could join the household, so I had no choice but to delete her from the file if I wanted to finish the challenge properly.  Personally, it's not my preferred play style, but there are times when things can't be helped.  And others sometimes need information.  :)

Hi! Your Sim does not have to be an inventor to get a time machine. My Sim got one at the consignment store @ 1,200 simoleons (I think). I am not so much a fan of the time machine when my Sim who had reached the top of his career (and happy in it) went into the time machine for the second time and when he went out, he was into another career. A change that was so unwanted. Cant shake it off either, so I had to quit the game without saving rather than him starting up all over again in level 1 of that career.  :(

So I guess that when I am planning a vacation I have to find someone else than Pam to look after my baby sims? :(

First, there is no pregnancy. If it's successful, in a couple sim hours a person will pop out of the time machine whose parents are the 2 people who tried for baby. If you tried in the future, it will be an elder, if you tried in the past it will either be a child, teen or YA. I prefer this to the "old-fashioned" way because there is no sickness, no maternity leave, and no weird cravings. Spaghetti and Ice Cream?? Together? Yuck! I have no luck fulfilling them so I always cancel anyways!  ;D

You would think that a child conceived in the past would be an elder.

You mean: 'It sounds paradoxal.' ;)

Well, I think it can be now officialy be taken  that the huge benefit of a Masterly made Time machine is that it provides my sim with stuff 9 out of 10 travels. He almost always get collectibles, if it are books, money, childs or clothes, everything you can collect, almost everything, can be taken from 'outa time.'
I'm glad I can now note this because I was really hoping for that this is the benefit of a Masterly Time machine. 'Great scot!'

Woah nobody has posted in this topic for awhile! Well anyway I was playing as Judy Bunch and I decided to throw her in the time machine. Then I got the message that she saw someone that looked familiar and told them to stop fighting. Well sudennly a little girl showed up outside of the Time Machine that looked JUST like Judy!

I aged her up to Adult and dressed her like Judy and she looked exactly like her.

I guess they just take the same sim who was using the Time Machine and make them a child. Not sure if this has been mentioned before but I just wanted to mention it.  :)

Yes, that's actually Judy's offspring (!).
Nice how it's exactly like her.

Yep, sometimes your Sim will come out with a complete copy of herself - Judy Bunch is just an example here.

EDIT: Leto, I think you meant "mess" instead of "mesh".

Actually, I think Leto may have messed with time, and Time retaliated by altering his post to say "mesh" instead of "mess". ;D

Who much does the time machine cost at the consignment store? After you buy it can you travel in time just once or multiple times? Are the collectibles that you bring back worth anything and able to be sold? If so, an unorthodox way to making money is buy a time machine, travel through time a bunch, and sell the collectibles. That would be a fun way to make money.
