I'd say that it's worth a shot trying the Inventing supermax, then. :)

Though I should ask; what's their career? You generally have to build more than the supermax requires to max out the Inventing career, which carries a greater risk of then maxing Handiness.

Its quite risky isn't it?  I mean you have to make 250 widgets, 100 big inventions, and simbot - that's quite a bit of time spent on inventing table.

Yes, but it's possible in the same way that supermaxing martial arts without maxing athletic is possible.

I'm playing in Barnacle Bay and there isn't any space for the horse training grounds, am I able to buy an additional home and tear it down to create my own for a future heir? I have a large garden, swimming pool, wedding and relaxing area and have just enough space for a small barn for the horse to sleep but not train.

As long as it doesn't involve Edit Town or cheats or other banned actions/content, do what you want with bought property.

*Sigh*
I went to open my most recent Grammar Family file this morning, and they are all doing the long pointed stick figures pose on the saved file shot. I've had that before (with other families from the past) and the game proved unplayable. May I return to an earlier save?

Thank you, I wanted to make sure it was OK before I did it and ended up regretting my decision when things are going so well  ;)

Hi, guys, so my first ID is drawing to a close and I thought I'd ask something for the next one I'm considering: What do you think are the hardest LTW, Careers, Skills, etc to do in an Immortal Dynasty?

That's probably a question for the hints thread - http://www.carls-sims-4-guide.com/forum/index.php/topic,12247.750.html

MODIFIED to add a question: One of my sims disappeared. Just... Disappeared. It was a ghost (Violet Slymer) so I'm not sure what happened, but she just fell off the portrait panel for no reason. My theory is she might have died, but of what? And is my dynasty failed? I really hope not, I just got done supermaxing photography.

Hi, guys, I think I'm having a problem with my heir. She's doing what she needs to do to complete opps but they aren't clicking as done. One is 'Commissioned Street Art' and she's sprayed three different murals across the public parts of town (gym and city hall) and the opp hasn't registered as done. The second opp is "help Investigation' which required her to go to the Police station and stay there until the opp was complete. She stayed until the bar filled up but the opp hasn't been finished. I tried again but the same thing happened. Any ideas about what to do? Thanks!

Help Investigation is impossible to complete. It's just buggy that way.

I've never heard of the issue with Commissioned Street Art. Have you tried cancelling it and getting it again? It is one of the few ops you can force-trigger by going to City Hall, after all.

Thanks for the info, Trip. Dang, lucky number seven you are not, dear. How do you force Commissioned Street Art? I never knew about that!

It's an option at City Hall if you have the skill. I forget the exact name of the action, but it's something related to getting a street art job.

Hi Trip,

Lisa46 added a question to her, post, it may have been missed by you, so I'm quoting it here for you.

Thanks for the heads up.

@Lisa: Was Violet an elder? Ghosts inside the household "die" with little fanfare when their time is up, and the camera doesn't even pan to them. However, you get a message about them returning to the great beyond when it happens. Unless you're referring to her disappearing in a different way.

She was an Adult, just aged up. I thought she might have died but wasn't sure how.

Go back to your last good save with her and continue from there.

Pretty sure there's no way for a playable ghost to die other than through old age.

Hi, Trip, so I looked for that way to force Commissioned Street Art like you mentioned and it's not there. I'm really starting to get worried about the heir's ability to get opps. She's in the middle of her YA stage and those are the only two she's gotten; none for fishing (her skill), none for logic(learning for her job), and none for her job( which I don't think has opps, she's a ghost hunter). Sorry if I sound excessively nervous, but she's Gen 7 and I'm hoping she gets them soon.

Really? I've never not seen that option at City Hall. :-\

Ghost hunting actually has a few ops. One was delivering spirits to one of the rabbitholes ("Best. Haunted. House. Ever."). My ghost hunter got it towards the end of her career.

Logically, those skills of hers should give some ops. Middle of the YA stage is too soon to tell if things are dire or not.

What rabbithole careers have you used so far?

Ah, good, that's a relief to know.

Politics, Military, Police (Spy), Medical, Chef have all been used.

Ghost hunting is a quick profession to max, and there are a lot of rabbithole careers that use logic that you haven't used yet. If things are getting tough, you can try one of those careers once ghost hunting is finished. Teaching, the evil branch of the Criminal career, and the forensics branch of the Police come to mind. And then there's Business, which has plenty of ops and no required skills.

Thanks for the list, Trip. I'll probably stick her in the Education career if she doesn't get her opps, that way I don't have to worry about potential overlap (I think Gen 4 got an opp or two from business while she waited for ambrosia). When should I start panicking about opps?
