There is no rule on multiples for this dynasty, but I am going to assume it is the same like the Immortal Dynasty.

"In the event a pregnancy results in twins or triplets, then the first named child is the next immortal." -- in this case, first named child is the next heir.

From the rules on page 1:
Quote
You automatically assign a Sim to be an heir if he/she is the firstborn of the previous generation.

Regarding the fish (one more time): I don't have any storage chests, but I would keep them in family inventory until the big move and then put them in the fridge. I would rather display them in bowls and count original value, though.

@Krae

The Family Collection must be on display at all times either on your home lot or on a purchased lot.  You need to put the fish on display, which means fish bowl in your case, not family inventory (or fridge).

Sounds good to me. I have fish planned for town #3 (Riverview) so I'm just planning for the future.

If you have pets xpac, leaving uncooked fish on the floor they will never die.  If the fish dies in the bowl, then you need to go fish another fish for the moving requirement, if you are using fish as one of the collection.

I guess I just need to make my fisherman my moving heir, or just extend his life until I'm ready to place those fish.

That's how it is in real life too, right?

I got confirmation from Metro regarding the fish.  For people without the pets xpac, you can display the fish in bowls, but take the fish original value at the time of moving.  You can scoop the fish out of the bowl, jot down the value, then put the fish back in the bowl.

Totally. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to pick some money off this tree before I have to be somewhere else. *whistles tunelessly*

Is this only for people without Pets, or can we choose to do that with Pets as well?

I would think that if you have Pets, it would be easier just to put them on the floor with a little fence around them. It may not look as nice, just easier.

You can choose to do that with Pets as well, but like KRae said in the previous post, it is easier to just put them on the floor.  You don't have to worry about feeding them or them dying on you, just have to put a fence / wall around them and lock out the pets.  If you are going for looks, by all means put them in bowls  ;D

Would it make life easier on players to just remove the whole "display" requirement for the collection? So, we'd go from...

The Family Collection must be on display at all times either on your home lot or on a purchased lot and must remain in the neighborhood and not packed up when it’s moving time.

To...

The Family Collection must remain in the neighborhood and not packed up when it’s moving time.

I mean if players want to display it for photo/story purposes, that's great. But this way it's player choice. Let me know your 2 cents.

On display for the move maybe, not the whole time? then it would still be a display.

I also vote for: On display at moving time.

If you want to display sooner, up to you, but if not, at least when moving.

Definitely would make life easier for lots of people. 

Lots of items depreciate in value when display (example: books, spirits, etc etc etc).  If we don't have to display it and keep it in family inventory, the prices wont' depreciate, making it definitely easier to get the 16k value.

Also would make KRae life easier, she won't have to feed the fish everyday !

Yes, please, display on moving, then my money bags can be kept in family storage so they won't depreciate and my last act before moving won't be harvesting.

Heir #2, a gardener, completed his add an heir requirements the day before his adult birthday. Way to go, Blaine Washington! All buildings are purchased with 5 properties to go. Three collections are done, totaling about 19,000 (not trying for big numbers here). At this point, I'm only collecting easily displayed items (beetles, butterflies, gems). Is there any decision yet on the display at moving yet?
