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

I thought that was just for producing the heir  :o Doesn't make sense with all the pollinating by elder male sims in other dynasties.

I am kind of laughing now because Hugh Grey, Nessie Lochlan's Romantic Interest to start and my pick for her baby daddy, just turned into a fairy as well. This time I have a witch's brew though.

Yes, for producing the heir it does.  Sorry, I misunderstood.  I thought you were talking about the heirs.  As far as pollinating goes, it's normally the males that live in the Dynasty house.  Hm, that's odd that you threw a cure potion at him, but then he had the wings again.  In the relationship panel, does he still have the green box around his portrait?

It's okay. He was a normal Sim on Saturday after the potent cure with no green around his portrait.Sunday they did try for baby, he had no green and no wings. Then on Monday  when he was leaving  he was a fairy again with different wings.

The species decision is at conception right

It isn't. Most of the things about an unborn baby in the game are determined when they're born, not when they're conceived. This includes life state, and I've seen several cases of babies being born as occults because their fathers turned into ones sometime during the pregnancy.

I'll let you go back to a previous save and cure him before the baby is born.

Thanks Trip. The baby was a fairy so I may just use Witch brews for baby daddies outside the house from now on if the game just wants to turn them back into long lifestates  and all males outside of heirs from now on.

That's the best way to guarantee your new baby will dynasty-legal. :) Good luck from this point on!

I am having a brain block and am not in the mood to go searching. But when Supernaturals was released, was there a ruling on whether or not we could have a witch as the founder?

Yes, you can have a witch to found your Dynasty. They share the same lifespan as a non-occult Sim.

Thanks Shirin, it's been so long, and I'm not getting any younger. I'm not sure what I want to do. I want Colt to finish a Sims 3 Immortal so bad. He has worked so hard at his attempts in the past. He is doing good so far in Sims 4. I need to think..

Ah, Colt definitely deserves the chance to finish a Sims 3 Immortal Dynasty! But can he do double duty? And do you have the time (and inclination)?

Either way, I'll go ahead and wish you (and him!) best of luck :)

Actually, appearance and life state are determined at least a day before birth. I had a baby born once, then crashed. When I reloaded, a day before the baby's birth, they were the same color and life state and (when aged up to toddler) the same appearance and even hairstyle.

Yeah, I do remember redoing births and getting babies with the same coloring...a lot.

Looks are determined at birth, though.

It says in the rules and you cannot carry special seeds or deathflowers around. Can you pick them up, then immediately put them somewhere else than the inventory (like a table in the Dynasty house)? Because else I can't see how you can get access to deathflowers and lifefruit.

Obviously. You can harvest deathflowers and pick up special seeds. Just don't hold on to them. :P

Thanks! Yeah, I suppose it's rather obvious, but I just wanted to be sure!

In all the yrs I've been playing I've never thought to ask this. But if  you have a female founder, when she marries, can she take the last name of the spouse or does the entire dynasty have to be the last name of the founder period?

Surnames don't matter. Who gets which last name is up to you.

I'd like to ask for advice before doing something possibly rule-breaking, so here goes.
Can I sell private lots that I previously have bought and modified?

Rules state: "Private lots can be purchased but the family may never move there... Private lots can be purchased and used but can never become the main residence".
Ricalynn Edit Town post says: "Another stipulation is that private lots purchased cannot be an empty lot that was placed by a player".

So, I plan to purchase an empty residential lot that is not placed by me but was originally in town since day 1, without moving immortal family there.
Then, I would build a decent house on that lot.
Then, I'd like to sell the house, so a townie family (whichever that would be, that's up for the story progression to decide) could move there.

As far as I know, rules do not mention explicitly whether we are allowed to sell purchased lots or not, that's why I'm asking.

Building houses on empty lots that were originally there anyways is fine to do too. Unorthodox, but fine. Rica was specifically referring to placing empty lots down with the World Editor just so you can have the right empty lot to buy and build on.

Finally it happened, Adjective managed to supermax photography, she travelled to the future and picked up the final few stranger pictures.



She never had to rely on anyone using the social networking skill to change the relationship from acquaintance/any of the friend levels to stranger to do it either.
