Wow, that is weird. I wonder if it has something to do with population controls? Like, the one second the clone wasn't part of the household the game tagged it as a werewolf because the town needed more werewolves? Only something went wrong and the tag didn't show up until later?

I ended up having to go to a save before that clone was even cloned, back when Gen 2 spouse was still alive, and Gen 4 was still at high school. Each saved game I had with that clone in the family, he was showing up as a werewolf.

At least I'm tracking Black Ops through the sim bio function of the game so I know which opps Gen 3 and Gen 4 have now done.

I noticed that there was no pond in the graveyard of Midnight Hollow, and initially thought that meant no deathfish in that gloomy town. But I used the Google custom search function on this forum and noticed that Nutella identified the location of them as being the Science Lab in town: http://www.carls-sims-4-guide.com/forum/index.php/topic,12445.msg354685.html#msg354685. Just wanted to mention that in here so that people who were looking for them knew where to look. :D

Hi, guys, I'm wondering about the Science skill challenge of analyzing 100 Plants, Insects, Fish, and Rocks. Is it 100 total or 100 each (ie 100 plants plus 100 insects, etc)?

Is the Not-so-Routine machine allowed? :)

Edit: Never mind, found Metro's ruling:

Yep, the item is fine as long as it would not have life-extending properties as mentioned above.

Does 'The' Make a Difference?
There are two school opportunities. In Russian version of the game, which I'm playing, they're called Исследовательский проект (The Research Project) and Научный проект (The Scientific Project). As you can see, names are quite different, and that's what misled me. However, it turns out in English version they're called, respectively, Research Project and The Research Project; the difference is, well, 'The' (but it's a difference nonetheless!). Goals are similar but distinctive: in the first one, you have to 'research supermarket' and go back to school; in the other one, you have to 'research science facility' and go back to school. Both result in improved grades.
My Sixth Immortal got 'Research Project' in the past, tried to fulfill it, but failed because of the game bug. It wasn't counted as one of her six opportunities, but as I understand, her taking and trying the quest have made it out of bounds for all the other immortals to count 'Research Project' as one of the six.
Now my Seventh got 'The Research Project'.
So, my question is: are those count as different opportunities?

I say count it. The English titles are different, and I'm personally fine with people counting opportunities based on their translated titles if that's indeed the language they're playing their game in.

Just wondering - I'm playing in Dragon Valley and my founder found a black dragon in the graveyard and took him home. I wanted to check a couple of things, the first being that it is okay to use the baby dragons that came with Dragon Valley? Or are they too cheaty? The second, following on from that question; can I use the black dragon to summon a death flower, plant it, then use that death flower for my Sim's inventory/in Ambrosia? So it would be homegrown, but from a black dragon summoned death flower instead of a special seed.

Thank you!

They're all fine to use, but you have to plant summoned/otherwise not-harvested deathflowers.

Just to clarify regarding ambrosia - the ingredients for ambrosia are lifeplant and death fish, not death flower.

I am happy to say I just completed an Immortal Dynasty  ;D

Erik, Sandra, Senna, Walter, Quinten, Frank, Roos and Esther van Wandeloo had an ambrosia / nectar / fireworks party to celebrate.

Museum value: 570 052

I kept most of the rules, but not all, so no Hall of Fame for me.

I was wondering, if I could have overwatch for my game? My other two mods, mover - installed, but not using and vector - not activated in game play. Also,can I have moveobjects on due to the fact I need some cc to work correctly by using that cheat? Thank you for creating a great challenge.  :D

My first heir traveled to China to complete an opportunity and I forgot that was not allowed, in till the second generation is a young adult, is this totally rule breaking and should I stop the dynasty?

If you can't play knowing that you broke a rule, then yes, stop playing because you broke a rule.

Okay, thank you for answering my question, even if it wasn't exactly the response I wanted. Have a good day.  :D

Dive lots are not allowed to be placed in worlds that they don't come with.

Can someone please explain to me why this rule is in place? I only got Island Paradise recently & haven't played with dive lots yet so I don't know much about them.

Is it possible to supermax the Scuba Diving/Snorkeling skill without dive lots?  :-\

It's because you can't just place down a dive lot; there's a lot of cheating involved to do so, and that doesn't exactly jive in a dynasty where cheats are largely banned.

And yes, you do need dive lots to supermax Diving.
