I don't know if I have missed this, but can the 6 best friends be in the family?

Yes they can be. Just remember that best friends of one immortal can't be best friends of another immortal eg Immortal A has spouse and heir (Immortal B) as 2 qualifying best friends. Immortal B can have Immortal A as qualifying best friend but not Immortal A's Spouse (as that one was already used by Immortal A as a qualifying best friend).

Is it still possible to get HoF for a Sims 3 Immortal Dynasty now that Sims 4 is out?  :-\ My gaming laptop died early last year & I haven't been able to play Sims 3 since. (This computer won't run it).  :( I plan on getting a new gaming laptop soon, if all goes well & I'd love to try for HoF if dynasties are still eligible for it. Can someone let me know? I would appreciate that.  :)

I still update the Hall of Fame whens someone completes a dynasty, or at least try to. TS4 being out doesn't affect that.

This is a good reminder that I actually did forget to enter someone in and should do that. Oops!

Hi, I just tried to click on your link to d/l the Sim Selector and got a popup saying that there was an extremely "critical update to flashplayer." This turned out to be a very bad file. It is not flash at all, but some other virus/trojan or whatever. I had to do a system restore to get rid of it. You may want to look into your link and correct it. Thanks!

That's bizarre. The link is to the mod on Mod The Sims. Perhaps you clicked a bad ad?

I agree Trip. I just went through the process and it was normal. No problem when I unzipped it. If there was a trojan or virus Norton would  have shut it down fast.

I'm just now starting this challenge or trying to anyway. Without going through all 405+ pages of this thread, could somebody please explain to me why the following restrictions are restricted? I just got SN very recently.

1. Getting a tattoo.
2. Getting a makeover. However, the Stylist career is not off limits, so you're free to give makeovers to other non household Sims. Just be honest and avoid giving makeovers to any Sim where their longer life from the makeover would be a benefit to your Dynasty.

4. Getting plastic surgery.
5. The mud bath feature of the Steam-It-Up Sauna.

7. Drinking soy milk from the Farm Fresh Folk set.
8. Keeping special seeds in the personal inventory.

I've done makeovers before I got SN; is it possible to makeover a sim into an alternate lifestate? Is it the same w/Plastic surgery or what about the tatoos? The others I don't totally understand. What does the soy milk do? What does the special seeds do? Most of the special seeds I've seen so far are just money trees or life plants or flame fruits, ect.... The might be plasma fruit one too. What is the "mud bath" feature? The only thing I find remotely related to that is the Volcanic Clay Bath and the Mud Facial. What do they do? Thanks!

All of those add at least a day to the current life stage (which is life extension, thereby prohibited), except for the special seeds.  If you have a special seed of a death flower, it has been working just like having the death flower in your inventory which is reserved just for your Immortals to prevent accidental death AFTER Ambrosia.

Hi Sonshine,
Even though Shewolf13 has posted while I was typing, I'm going to still post my answer as well.

In general,  1, 2, 4, 5 and 7 can either return your sim to the start of the current life stage or take some days off your life (I don't know for sure which is which). This gives you extra days to achieve your requirements which isn't permitted. Specifically on the individual items.

1 You can have a tattoo on your sim at the start of the game though, give them one while in create a sim.
2 Basically if you put your sim in the Stylist career, give sims who you are not likely to want to use in your dynasty the makeovers (so avoid giving them to sims who you may want to put in your household or who you are wanting to be best friends for your targeted immortals.

5 The Steam-It-Up Sauna is a piece of premium content that you can give mud baths with. This is a different item to the Volcanic Clay Bath and the Mud Facial in the Spa Rabbithole around town. You can use all the options available from the Spa Rabbithole, however.

7 Cows from the milking station premium content can give different kinds of milk depending on what you feed them. Normal milk, chocolate milk and soy milk are the types I know. Soy milk adds extra days of life to sim by reducing their age, so that's why you are unable to give it to non-immortal sims.

8 It was recently discovered that if you are carrying unknown special seeds in the personal inventory of a sim and they die either of old age or one of the other death types that if any of those unknown special seeds are a death flower seed that Grim will take the seed away and permit your sim to continue living. So, if you do collect unknown special seeds, after your sim picks them up, you can drag them from your sim's inventory and put them on your home lot. If you can get something that stores items (bug collectors cabinet or either of the two elixir cabinets are my favourites for this) you can drag them directly to the storage cabinet to store them securely. Alternatively, if you have a basement or flat roof that no one can get to, you can put the special seeds in either of those places.

Hope my explanation helps and please ask if you have any further questions, Sonshine. :)

Thanks Shewolf and Deklitch! I guess I don't keep up on all of the premium items in the store, lol. I do have the Milking station, but have never done the soy milk. If you have a sim in the family w/a gardening level of 7 +, is it possible to just plant the special seed to see what it becomes? It's been a while since I've done this, but I think there is a way of telling what it is before you plant it.

You are fine to plant them if you have a sim that can you just can't leave them in inventory in case it's a death flower, as for telling what they are well Plasma is obvious as it glows, I've read Nutella mention that death flowers and money tree seeds have a 0 value so might give you a clue there, that just leaves the flame fruits and life fruits.

Also remember when harvesting to take the death flowers off any non immortal gardeners once they collect them, it was actually in my dynasty that a sim gave Grim a death seed, I was so shocked but thankfully allowed to carry on but it meant this new ruling came about.

If the relationship bar is in the best friend range, almost full or full, then yes old friends count. Easiest way to know is keep the bar maxed or see if there is another sim labelled best friend after them in the panel, that would mean they are in the best friend range.

Is it legal to use the Young again elixir/potion/ltr to make your immortal sim young again after they reach immortal status?

Good news! Adjective, my photographic supermax found a group of sims in France that she didn't know and photographed a group of them so her paparazzi skill challenge took a great leap forward. Neither her father nor her in laws have died yet, so she and hubby can't bring in gen 4 yet.

Sucks about your elders having some life left in them, but as someone's who's never completed the Paparazzi challenge, that sounds awesome. :D

Hi again. I have another dumb question. Are any of my immortals allowed to use the young again elixir/potion/ltr after they've reached immortal status?

Didn't you ask this earlier today?

No, you cannot. It's not like other players have stuck with elder immortals as a mere aesthetic choice. :P

Okay so I'm a bit worried. I started an Immortal dynasty attempt going for HOF and Emma Delaney was attracted to Breandan O'Shea who was a fairy (large pink wings). I figured no problem and hit him with the potent cure elixir so he would be normal (this was on Saturday Week 1) and got their relationship up to engaged/ extremely irresistible. Then I had them try for baby at 11 something  Sunday week 2(tried to do it at 10 but I had to make them move to the actual bedroom and he was a human at the time I'm pretty sure unless I missed the tiny wings). I heard the lullaby so it was successful, but when I got the message he was leaving(sometime after midnight Midnight Monday week 2 but before 5) I saw he had turned fairy again(this time with tiny green wings :o ). Is it possible they will have a fairy and I have to start over again? The species decision is at conception right so there is nothing I could do no to help?  :-\ Wish she had been attracted to Kearney, he was on the teal green slider and still human.

Both parents have to live in the Dynasty house anyway, unless it's the seventh generation.
