Thanks! And, yes, I've completed all five. OCD is good for something.

Hi, guys, I'm considering doing Nectar Making for next generation's supermax but I've heard that the vizard skill challenge bugs out. What should I do if that happens and how does it happen? Thanks!

Nutella helped me a lot with this (I think in the Life states thread fairly recently) and her method worked for me. It doesn't always though, but I've seen people get permission to count it as completed. Keep good count of bunches of French grapes used just incase.

Yes, we do give permission to count it, but I'd like you to make sure that you do everything right first:

- Use only French grapes.
- Have your nectar maker plant and harvest them (if you already have an immortal who supermaxed gardening, you can get it done by planting common grape varieties and using some automated way of watering them so that they don't needlessly skill up in gardening. Just plant and harvest when ready).
- Don't travel.
- Keep a close count on how many you use.

Thanks for the input, you two. I'll keep all of that in mind. The heir's loving nectar-making so far, now we just have to deal with the broken family tree.

Are we allowed to have the water wheel from the Old Mill set, it'll save time going to the graveyard for deathfish? Also, this may not be allowed but I wanted to ask to make sure, can you convince non-household sims to try for baby with each other?

I don't know about the water wheel. It was never discussed. While I have it, would you mind explaining how the mechanics work in relation to getting deathfish?

The "Convince to Try for Baby" interaction comes with Twallan's Woohooer. It's not a part of an unmodded game. So no.

My sim just went fishing at the Wheel and caught random fish including deathfish during the day - this was on a test save just to see what I could catch.

Oh, I was wondering why I didn't have that interaction any more, oops.

What level of fishing was he and how often did he catch deathfish? Could they be caught at any time of the day?

He is only a level 7 and it was around 1 or 2 pm when he caught the fish. I don't think it'll be allowed then. I was hoping to keep the Wheel as a decorative item when I build a dynasty house and have it fenced off so no one can make use of it.

That's what I'm thinking too. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

Would it still be legal to have your cats catch 10 deathfish, then stock them in a pond you build, and catch them at any time of the day that way? Is it still legal to catch 2 deathfish and breed them in fish tanks (in fact, was this ever legal)?

I think, mostly, I'm confused about the wheel, because I don't know how many deathfish were caught. If it was only 1 or 2, I could see that as a fluke, if it was 10-12, then not so much.

It's just that there's a little more work involved with those two methods. Cats have to max the hunting skill to get deathfish, and in order to breed deathfish, you still have to catch deathfish the old fashioned way.

Granted, we also allow the fruit stands from the Al Fresco Street Market to be used to get life fruit (to plant, but still). I think that I'll drag the topic into a discussion between the Challenge Team.

EDIT 10/24/2014: The Old Mill Water Wheel content has been deemed okay. Sorry for any confusion.

Thank you, I'm glad I don't have to make amends to my build design  ;D

I don't have any questions, I just want to celebrate the fact that Gen 7 has been born! *dances* Everything looks good and I can't wait for the end, we just might make it!

Are we allowed to start dynasties with our founder and a pet, or does it just have to be the founder?

Hi, I saw on the Life States Dynasty that those challengers could change their graphics settings when they wanted. Does this apply to the Immortal Dynasty as well? My game's really starting to lag ferociously and I think that would help matters.

I have a question for those of you who supermaxed inventing: how high did your heir's handiness skill get by the time you finished? I'm a bit concerned as my heir has made ~10 things and already has lvl 2 in handiness when my Founder supermaxed it. Thanks!

I don't think my inventor maxed it while supermaxing, at least not when I factor in that I made her the defacto repairwoman of the house too.

Pretty sure it's possible to supermax inventing without maxing handiness, but do you have a backup skill just in case?
