Yeah, I have tried it too and no luck - maybe I leaped before I looked?

Anyway, I can always focus on career ops for this challenge.

So one of my heirs has maxed Social Networking. I also have the option to set Grim Reaper as a Best Friend - can Reaper be counted amongst those unique BFs, or no? I obviously have no way to check the panel short of killing someone, but I figured that just before it's time for the heir to be conceived, I'd set the relationship then.

But Grimmy isn't in your sim's relationship panel if he's not there, is he? Unless we can count non-playable ghosts as best friends too.

Ya grimmy isn't in relationship panel, but Shirin does have relationship app and can set best friend status within a few sim minutes.   What's everyone thoughts on this?  Yes or no to grimmy?

Shirin can you hold off on your 4x4 dynasty?  I want to check with the team and the boss about this grim reaper thing.

I'm currently playing catch up, but I do have a back up plan in case the answer is no. The heir in question has plenty of time left. I'm just neurotic about planning ahead ;D

I don't know if this has been asked before, but I'll ask anyway.
I am ready to move Heir 4. My Collection and 4 x Career Rewards are displayed in my Collection room.
When moving, I get the option to pack or sell the furniture. What do I choose?

Could small animals (rodents, turtles, snakes,) count towards your family collection if they're alive at the time your 4/8/12 gen moves?

I would think so, since fish count - but best wait for a ruling from the team.

Ok, I think my file has either gone crazy, very buggy or both at once.
It all started when my fourth heir "died" in the next town. She did the usual sparkling and turning into a ghost things but where is the reaper? Nowhere to be found even more than 6 sim hours after she was supposed to be picked up.

Any ideas on how to actually summon the guy to remove my poor Artemisia from her still floating position? Or should I just restart the whole thing?

Margerita-

Did you try resetsim?  If that didn't work, do you have a save prior to the death?

I had the same bug happen in a non challenge/dynasty file and tried a reset there - it just returns the sim to life and at the start of the elder stage once again.

Nutella, I almost always have a previous save file, I'm not sure if loading it will change anything but I can still try.

I will try that tomorrow since I need to go to sleep now. Results of the reload will come sometime tomorrow then.

Ok, I think the Grim has taken a permanent holiday...

I reloaded an earlier save, earlier from the same day that Artemisia died, there was indeed a homeless dog that had wandered into the house earlier (it wandered out again during the previous play through). This time it decided to die, my sims got the usual grieve interruption,  no ghost, no grim once again...

I think the file might be entirely bugged with that event happening.

Margerita-

Can you try evicting your family in edit town mode, then move them back in the house and see if that fix the problem?  Other than that, I don't know what else to have you try.  I'm sorry this is happening, you might have to restart your dynasty.

Sure, I'll try that - if it doesn't work I'll remove some expansion and stuff packs and sort through the store content I have to relieve the load on the game a bit before I start it again.

Edit: Never mind, the file seems to have gone away somehow, I'll have to restart either way. Oh well I learned lots on how to handle this dynasty so next try should go better.

I just got a skill opportunity with ITF installed. I think it's because she was on a community lot when the call came.

Which one did you get? I've gotten about 4 of them for the Laser Rhythm-a-con, but that's it (other than career ones).
