Now that we can have vampire heirs after requirements are met, can spares be other life states?

Could we please move? I chose Agnes and it's so leggy even though I'm not even on my second generation.

Have you tried resetSim * ?  There is probably some stuck sims somewhere in your town.

Since I failed this dynasty twice due to forgetting some of the rules, I want to be absolutely sure about my next try.

1. Am I allowed to use SimGameSelects to play, for example, with World Adventures, Seasons and Uni in the first world
and then, after moving to the second world, play with Seasons, Supernatural and Island Paradise?
This way, my pc is less laggy and I don't want all of the expansions possibilites in every world.
Or have the expansions stay the same for the entire challenge?

2. Can I purchase an additional house in my neighborhood if the first lot will stay the main home?

1. Your choice of EPs has to remain consistent throughout your dynasty, with Into the Future being the exception (you can turn that one on and off entirely because of how it messes with skill opportunities). Other than that, make your choice beforehand.

2. Pretty sure you can, yes.

Does anyone have any tips for how to capture the photograph of Sculpture Garden (under the Ambitions collection)?

I have tried it with 5 random sculptures. I have tried it with 9 random sculptures. I have tried it with 2 Faboo Fu, 2 Siren, and 1 Gator. I have tried it with landscaping plants, and without. I've tried it in daytime, night time, zombie time.

Without fail, I either get the name of the landscaping plant itself (like Hydrangea) or, when I replace that with one that won't register, I just get Home Decor, regardless of the number of sculptures up.

I have another question about the collections.  So if I have an alien in my household that isn't an heir or founder, can I summon the meteor or whatever it is and have one of my heirs or founders pick up the space rocks?  Would that count as a heir or founder contribution?

I did sent a PM asking the team about this last year, only got one response from the team.  Metro and ratchie, do you want to give some feedback on this too?

Rule:  Only founders & heirs can contribute to the family collection.

Question:  If an alien housemate calls down meteors, but the heir is the one that collects the spacerocks and analyze them for the family collection, does that qualify? 


Personally I do not think it should be allowed. Even though the alien is a house member, you are still controlling the alien telling them to do a meteor shower. It would make getting your meteor collection done quickly without going out in the world to find rocks (I think the meteor shower makes it so easy, isn't that what the collection finder is for hehe).

I think that it should be permitted. Using an alien to do something for you is in my opinion akin to using a genie for money. Some people could say that using a collection helper should not be allowed because the heir or founder is using something to help them.

I agree 100%. I am okay with the alien housemate calling down a meteor.

As long as its your founder or heir picking up the space rock, then yes you can use it for the collection.

I believe it has to be 5 topiaries.

Ahhh, that explains it. I'd read elsewhere that topiaries weren't necessary, but it did seem odd. Thanks!

If you are playing in Moonlight Falls, can you place a separate school and stadium?

You can replace the combined building with separate ones ONLY IF you are experiencing combined building bug.

It's the Sims 3 Game Selector at Mod the Sims.

I haven't run into the bug thanks to not having Into the Future, but it sounds awful and I hope your game can go on. :(
