I am somewhat disappointed with Ambitions. And with the time machine too... I hope Late Night will be better.

I like the time travel machine but so far have only come back with one future female outfit even though I travel in the past as often as I do in the future.  Thank goodness no extra children (I don't dare try the woohoo part after reading what everyone has written).  ;D  
I have come back with quite a number of new books though, which were sorely needed with my 'readaholic' family! 8)

Medieval language isn't that easy to understand! Not the spelling/grammar is so difficult, all those different accents (even more in Medieval times) really make reading more difficult. And nobody knows how we'll speak or write in the future!

@ The Illuminator: we will speak probably a mixup with different leanguages. You know, a lot of English words have made it to Holland to, and have somehow being integraded here. Example: Skateboarding in Holland has become a verb: Skateboarden. 'Ik ga skateboarden.'

I honestly didn't notice if my sims had problems reading the books they brought back or not.  I will check it out this evening when I load up my game.   ???

This was even more in Medieval times. English and Dutch (and French) people could understand each other when trying.

Actually, the first sentence of "Middel-Nederlands" was until recently: Hebban olla vogela nestas hagunnan hinase hic anda thu wat unbidan we nu? (Hebben alle vogels nesten begonnen behalve ik en jij, wat wachten we nu. English translation: Have all birds begun building nests except I and you, where are we waiting for). But recently they discovered it was actually a late form of Early English.

The first sentence (9th century) is now: Visc flot aftar themo uuatare. (Een vis drijft over het water) English translation: A fish floats over the water. For all English people, try to see the similarity.

OK, I tried it with two different Sims tonight and both finished books from the past and from the future.  Maybe Simlish hasn't changed over time nor did it have different dialects  ;D.

Maybe it works like the Tardis in Dr.Who and automatically translates everything into a language the reader can understand.  :D

Wow, I need to make a female inventor!

Are you guys able to accomplish things like Master inventions while on Normal lifespan? I'm playing a legacy on Normal now, but I don't know whether it'd be worth it to pursue such challenging accomplishments with such a short life.

Well, having WA helps as you can do things out of your normal timeline, without family obligations and without aging. That is one of the big plus thingies in WA - much like a well built base in TS2 Nightlife. As you can practically travel every two days if need be and stay for a really long time if you have Visa level 3 + the extension certificate and a purchased house ... you can practically max a LOT of skills while on vacation, especially so, if you have the moodlet manager. :)

Alright a couple things. I had the da Vinci lifetime wish completed. When I went back, I had a masterpiece painting and in the past I sold it for 20,000 simoleans. Anyone done anything similar? Also if you have testing cheats enabled and you control click the moodlets involving the time machine (not including great meal moodlets and stuff like that), you can time travel again immediately, which if you only use it for that purpose it is not necessarily a cheat.

Well, yes, it is a cheat.  Anything that removes moodlets would be considered a cheat.  It's not a big deal if a player likes playing with cheats, but it wouldn't be allowed in any kind of challenge.

I read this yesterday and I was going to say I thought it was, cause I'm a big cheater, even though I can honestly say I haven't been cheating lately  ;D ;D but I figured I would wait and see what someone else said!

That isn't what I meant. I meant by that is was more realistic that way if there was more or less a downtime before going back in time. Also the only thing I have ever gotten from time travelling was some books and some money never a gnome or a suit or any other thing. Is this just because of a glitch or something?

P.S No grammar mistakes see I'm trying.

As for what you come back with from time travelling, I think it's pretty much random.  All my sims have ever returned with is a negative moodlet and, once, a child from the past.  But other people have gotten neat outfits and other goodies.

No way to trigger this? I already think to know the answer, but I can always ask it to be sure.

So weird I've never fot a message about Late Night stuff and other upcoming expansions after my sim travels to the future.

That would be so cool you can get a book about simcity 7300 or something like that but none about the future sims games.

My Sim chanced upon the time machine in the consignment store, and he bought it as a curious item for his home.  He is a brave, workaholic Sim who has reached the top of the politics career "Head/Leader of the Free World", and he is proud of it and loves his work. Going into the time machine travel in the past, and he seemed to have encountered a bad experience and came out in a diferrent career!!! He has switched to the top of the business career... I thought the effect was temporary, but the career stuck with him as he emerged from the time machine! Nobody wanted him to be in the business career, not after he toiled hard to become the Leader of the Free World! I had to quit the game without saving ... the Sim family hid the time machine in their inventory, vowed not to play with it again in case something bad happens again... :(

I had a Sim change job because her HUSBAND was using the time machine once.  She wasn't in there, but I got a 'Torri spent some time as jester to a medieval king' message as she went past the machine cleaning house.  I was trying to get her to the top of the cookery career so that I could get the good fridge, and she'd already swapped jobs from using the time machine once - once to medicine, I think, and this time to education.  I tried to get her job back at the Hogan's Deep Sea Diner and they only offered her Ingredient Taster when she'd been a Line Cook before.  I was so annoyed I drowned her.

My Sim got one at a consignment store in Bridgeport, and took a ride to the past.

Came back with a new futuristic outfit (very odd), a picnic basket, and a boy-child.

Had to move them to a new apartment, then they wound up moving in with Matthew Hamming.

Naturally, celebrities are curious about big things in their garage, so he took a ride. And brought back Flame Fruit.

I had my couple try for baby in the past and the future. Got a child from the past that says he is my man's son and my woman's step-son! How that happened I'll never know! I got an elder from the future that is both of their daughter. Any ideas? My couple is green, and both kids are green so how could he be my woman's step-son? He looks just like her!
The same thing happened to me, except I didn't even try for a baby. She looks exactly like her "step-mom", though.
