Yes, it most certainly does, lol.

Did you check to see if the Sim actually had their lifespan reset as if eating ambrosia?  If so, that's something challenge creators would need to know for some challenge rules.  Seems I read that similar can happen when eating at the diners.

Oh wow, excellent point there. I didn't even think to check that. Now that I think about it though, I wouldn't have known in this particular family since I have aging off. But that is quite a possibility.  :o

@ Mrs Laphalot, I can hardly wait for my sim to start bringing back some good stuff.  The only things he has brought back so far is some simeleons and a couple of outfits, the caveman and tron suit.  I so want that medival outfit too. ;D

Edit:  Forgot to add that I've gotten a few gems, cash, and the cavewoman outfit so far.

I can confirm that. If you have a twin and sent one back or forward in time and he will get the divine meal moodlet you have something like the twinbrother paradox. :P
But anyway, I can confirm that it will indeed make your sims younger.

If you watched charmed, you would know that it is possible to have a future adult appear in the present.

Traveling to the past can bring your Sim a new acquaintance or relative in the present.

On one trip to the past, my Sim convinced a pioneer Sim to keep going instead of heading back.  When she got home, she had a new acquaintance with the same last name as the pioneer, presumably the pioneer's descendant.

A second trip had more surprising results.  My Sim encountered a quarreling couple and smoothed out their relationship problems on a trip to the recent past, only to notice they seemed familiar.  Before she returned, I saw a new box on the side of the screen showing the members of the household, then something shimmered beside the time machine and a child appeared!  He has the same last name as my Sim and looks like her, and is her son according to the family tree (no mention of the father).  I'm just glad there's a SimBot in the household too, so Social Services doesn't get on my Sim for leaving a minor unattended if she's out when he's home.

This is strange, I had this happen again but this time I had been watching to see if it affected the age. In this case it didn't.  :-\ This was a different family with aging on. It's a tad aggravating at times when there seems to be no constant in such event. Don't get me wrong, I love randomness, but certain situations shouldn't be random in my opinion.  :)

All this time machine stuff reminds me of the Back to the Future movie series... It'd be funny if a young adult came back with his older self...

And when your sim grows up, you'll see your younger sim popping up and kidnapping your sim to the earlier times. ;)
It would have been great! ;D

I built a masterful time machine earlier today, and noticed I had a new moodlet from using it, "Having a Great Adventure", +20, on top of the traveled in time moodlet.

My Emperor of Evil Sim went to the past, explored a bit and then came back with a -50 moodlet for "betrayed"   Apparently his brother (the International Spy) had betrayed him in the past.  They were best friends but Evil Sim came back and beat up his brother, like a serious throw down, considering they were both max Athletics!

The moodlet has worn off but they still hate each other!  :(

How exactly do you get a baby from time traveling?! I have never seen a "try for baby" option. Is it something that just randomly happens?

These are all good stories by the way, some things I've never thought of. Haven't spent a whole lot of time time traveling yet, but have gotten some money and a few books out of it :)

I've seen the Try for Baby option quite a few times, but I haven't used it.  I just had a Sim come back from the past with a child who looks just like her.  There was no woohoo or try for baby involved.  I would have liked to let the child grow up so I could see if she looks identical to her mother (who is very pretty, by the way), but it's a challenge game and I had to delete the child to stay within the rules of the challenge.

You've already been legendary for a long while, Swede!

On topic: I wonder how many things the time machine can affect. I have the idea EA is hiding something from us...

But I don't mind, finding out myself is much more fun, as long as it doesn't crash my computer!

Question related to Male Time-Machine-Unlocked Outfits:

What is the 3rd past outfit? There are supposed to be 4 outfits for males, 3 from the past and 1 from the future. I've already got the future one, and the chainmail armor and caveman ones from the past. Oh and for the record, you can get the caveman costume by exploring glowing holes created by Miners.

Do you come out of the hole wearing it, or is it just unlocked? Mine hasn't come out that way, but I never checked to see if it's unlocked.

I had one of my male sims end up with the caveman outfit from exploring a mining hole.  I kind of didn't like it.  His original clothes became every day outfit #2 and I couldn't delete every day outfit #1.  I suppose I could have just changed it but... how annoying!

Whahahahaha!!!! That would be so totally awsome. And dangerous to. :P

@ Pam, deleting a child... that is indeed sad. Especially for you, being such a child lover and always like to play the challenges related to baby boomer things. :) Maybe you can also save the game as something different than the challenge save game. But maybe I am a bit late with that solution for you. :(

When you get a new outfit, like the caveman one, it will be added as a new Everyday Outfit. If you want to remove it, click on your sim and Change Outfit -> Your other Everyday Outfit. Then go to the dresser, click on Plan Outfit, and click the trash bin next to the caveman's number (it should be 2 after that, but once my Sim had 3 everyday outfits, he got the glowing hole caveman one, and it became an everyday 4, which was hidden. I had to delete one of the ones I had to then delete the "4th")

Hey, I'm new to this forum and was wondering if anyone else time travelled with a ghost. I have been lately and the other day during travelling to the past it, said that my sim stood too close to a tesla coil thinking it wouldn't hurt him since he was a ghost and that the coil caused him to no longer be a ghost and when he returned he wasn't.
Kinda wondering if this has happened to anyone else because I thought it was cool, and if it only happens to certain ghosts because mine died from fire ironically while building the time machine, lol.

He, he, habsfan, that's amazing! This must be the first way we have ever discovered, except the intricate ambrosia recipe, to revive a ghost! :o

Thanks. I looked everywhere to see if anyone has ever had that happen to them and couldn't find it, so I figured I would ask.
