" Heir #1 then brings in a spouse/partner to produce heir #2 "

When I read this line, I am reading it as they need to bring in a spouse, so bring in to the household to produce heir #2.   I could be wrong though  :-[

Nah, that makes sense. For some reason, today my brain is processing that line as "if you want to," when it doesn't even say that.

I need to go find a sturdy brick wall to beat my head against. Maybe it'll reset that brain...

Is there a hints and tips thread for the 4 x 4 dynasty?

There isn't one at the moment, we can create one.

Does the heir have to maintain his/her max career after completing all the requirements? Can he/she quit once the next heir is born?

Yes, he/she can quit the career once the next heir is born.

Does that mean they have to stay in the career until the next heir is born?  My generation 1 heir was a self-employed photographer but I moved him into the business career after he'd been at level 10 for some time because the photography opportunities weren't firing.  (In fact, he didn't get another one for the rest of his life.)  Generation 3 is now working on her requirements, so I hope it's OK  :-\.

You're good, no worries.  :)  Don't have to maintain maxed career.

Gah.

Generation 3 has an opportunity - Help Investigation - that he's completed twice, but it won't register as completed. The first time, I thought the jetpack interfered, so I sent him back. The second time, he completed it again, again without it register, so I removed the jetpack altogether. The opportunity quest says to visit the police station, but the option doesn't exist at all (his only options are to join law enforcement or private investigator) - it doesn't even show the yellow opportunity background where it's greyed out due to the time. I am currently in Bridgeport.

May I count this as completed?

Yeah, that's fine, Shirin. Go ahead and count it. Bridgeport has those combo buildings and if I recall the police station is one of them — correct me if I'm wrong. I think that can mess up opportunities.

Thank you so much!

Yeah, the police station is combined with the military base and city hall.

I like Bridgeport in that I don't play it often enough, but I will be glad to get the family out of there.

Is there any restriction moving in and out of spares and other townies as deca dynasty does? I am going through a stage in my heir's life that's very boring and there is not much to do, so I wonder if I could do something to the townies...

No restrictions for moving in and out for spares / household members.  Only restriction is potential spouse needs to be in the correct life state and must be invited into the household by the heir.

No to adventure ops, but if you mean PI ops by profession ops (it's the only profession that is op-based, anyways), then that's a yes.

If the opp appears on the regular slot then it counts (career, skill, special).  Trip is correct, PI opps count, since it appears on the regular slot, however opps like adventures and university don't count, since it doesn't appear in the regular slot.

What about the ops you get from time traveler in ITF ep? There seems to be quite a lot of them, changing the future could give you a series already.
Btw. Is genetic child (I think the door of life and death seems to have similar function but I am not sure since I don't own it) allowed as household members (just not heirs) or completely banned? I am not going future yet in the current world but want to make sure so that I can plan later on.

I know they fill up a regular slot, but they seem too easy to get.  The team will discuss this and get back with an answer on this soon.

Currently it is completely banned.   Does anyone see any need to lift this ban from household members?

For what its worth, all the d.o.l.a.d. babies are generic townie featured.  All sliders at zero.  at meast in my game.

I've seen people on the official forums report generic-faced children with the door too. I can't test it myself because I don't have the venue.

I'd say lift the ban, because other ways of getting children without natural pregnancies are allowed, as long as they don't threaten an heir's firstborn status, right?

Ok, got an answer.  They do count, just remember if you count those opps, they have to be unique, no other founder/heir can complete them.

I also vote to lift the ban, as long as it's non-heirs.

Thank you. Actually, I really need these opps right now because I have a problem with my file - I think the family has somehow stopped getting skill opportunies -
I used to get them a few days in a row but it has been several weeks and I still haven't got a single one for any household members although they are constantly improving their skills.
Career I haven't tried but I do get school opps still. However, there is problem with me getting trophies for ambition careers, even if I have completed the usual requirements.
Is there a work around to this?
