It's just one to make CaW work again, since 1.69 broke it. I don't really see anything else to say about it.

Sorry, I could've worded that better. :) Since the last patch was an optional upgrade - given the lack of gameplay-altering features - is this one too?

A question regarding this part of the rules:-

Quote
Immortals must result from natural pregnancies where both parents are living in the Dynasty house.

So, a female to be immortal brings in an elder male to be her spouse. As quickly as possible, she becomes pregnant with her sugar daddy as he is getting on in years. Unfortunately her hubby goes with Grimm between her falling pregnant and her giving birth. Does that break the above rule, as he's no longer living in the Dynasty house? Or is it simply a case of an extra space is open in the household now?

ETA This has happened to me recently in a non id game file, and I figure its sure to happen to me in an id game file as well, given my experiences with what happens in my games at inopportune times lol.

My interpretation is that in this case the pregnancy was natural and both parents were living in the dynasty house. It says pregnancy, not birth.

If the babydaddy is a part of the household at conception but dies before the baby is born, it's fine. It happened to at least two players I can think of and we didn't have an issue with it.

And yes, it's the same if your upcoming heir's strapping young father dies in a horrible, genuine accident before the birth too.

So my sim went to visit Ms Aggie C on Mday one of a new attempt in order to sell her car, err befriend her and calm her in her time of weeping when I got the message that my sim was wondering why the sky turned dark all of the sudden ... so I hightailed my sim out of there. the meteor struck on the left hand side of her front yard, but her car (on the right hand side) was destroyed by the meteor as well. Oh this is sure to be lots of fun, ROFL.

Time of Meteor Strike 2:39 pm Sunday week 1. :)

ETA: Her car gave me 1889 pieces of scrap. The gigantic meteor was worth 3591 simeloens before analysis and 5027 after analysis. Just a little bit less than the value of her actual vehicle lol

ETA Question: I just hovered over the 4 piles of scrap that surround where her car was, and then added them up, I haven't picked them up or anything. If a future sim does inventing and picks those piles of scrap up, will they count towards the collecting scrap skill challenge? (If not, I'll just have my founder pick them up and sell them).

ETA: Further amusement ... my sim went and picked up the meteors and then went and visited Aggie again, this time in her house. Aggie agreed to go to dinner with my sim (6:28 pm Sunday week 1) ... low and behold, Aggie reached into her back pocket and pulled out a second Bwan Speedster, because that's what they drove to Hogan's Deep Fried Diner in, I fully expected them to get a taxi there, or at the best one of those sloppy jalopies.

Out of curiosity, since it's not in the rules, are mermaids also banned for the household? Because if so, I'm going to have to watch my future spouse's legs carefully. :P

I stand corrected, but I vaguely remember the Team saying that mermaids were fine since they had a normal lifespan, like witches. But don't quote me on that lol

@SeraNita: Magpie is correct. Mermaids are not banned from...any of the dynasties, come to think of it.

I see. Thank you for the clarification, I must have missed that somewhere. Good thing they are allowed though; my town is already filling up with the fish people.

@SeraNita: Yup. There might have been a lot of complaints about IP as an expansion, but nothing bothers me more than the random mermaids that you can't disable.

Just remember the caveat that any heir born/turned into a mermaid cannot use diving as their supermax (and therefore bans anyone from using diving as their supermax).

Mermaids drive me crazy. Before I let them procreate (except in the Lifestates Dynasty) I keep them away from the ocean until they lose their mermaidiness.

I think my question must have been missed in my previous post. :)

Basically it is ... if a meteor strikes and it destroys something that leaves a lot of scrap, can a later generation immortal pick up said scrap and have it counted towards the scrap collector challenge?

Does the scrap even stay there? I think it would "disappear" after a while wouldn't it?

I dunno if @Magpie2012 is right or not about it disappearing, but if it stays, sure.

Lol @Trip Magpie isn't even sure if Magpie is right about it disappearing lol I just know that sometimes you would go to a junkyard lot and see something there and then a day or so later, you go to that same lot and its gone! Then again, that was probably the work of spawners or something lol

I seem to recall scrap from a meteor that struck Central Park stayed until I cleaned it up, and scrap from exploding dishwashesr on the home lot stuck around lagging things until I did something about it.

Ok then, my latest attempt has the following plan.
1 - Painting Supermax SE Artist Career - Living in Lap of Luxury LTW - Dusty Old Lamp/No Bills Ever/Extra Creative LTRs - switch to Art Appraiser Career as elder
2 - Fishing Supermax SE Angler Career - Presenting Perfect Aquarium LTW - Motive Mobile/Food Replicator/Change of Taste - switch to Music Career as elder
3 - Handiness Supermax Military Career - Become an Astronaut LTW - Moodlet Manager/Meditative Trance Like Sleep/Efficient Inventor - remain as astronaut
4 - Sculpting Supermax SE Sculptor Career - Swimming in Cash - Artisan Crafter/Collection Helper/Fire Proof Homestead - switch to journalism career as elder
5 - Writing Supermax SE Author Career - Professional Author - Acclaimed Author/Bookshop Bargainer/Born to Cook - switch to Cooking Career as elder
6 - Photography Supermax SE Photography Career - Jet Setter/Prepared Traveller/Learned Relic Hunter - switch to professional sports career as elder

8 (turned to witch) - Alchemy Supermax SE Alchemist Career - Alchemy Artisan - Flying Vacuum/Magic Hands/Dirt Defiant - switch to Education career

This leaves athletics/all instruments/inventing/martial arts/logic/gardening/cooking/nectar making/charisma/mixology/science/social networking as free skills (note I don't have Pets/Seasons/ITF/Island Paradise installed/active)

Once upon a time, there was a Dynasty called Medley, and their Watcher abandoned them due to real-life nooboo and a laptop that refused to load the game in less than an hour and a half. Said Watcher now has a nooboo AND a toddler, but the new laptop will actually load quickly enough to not be frustrating. Previously, all expansions, stuff packs, and much store content was installed. Currently, I am playing without ITF and some unknown amount of store content. Would this be kosher for a continuation of HoF status (assuming I can maintain enough interest through 3.5 more generations of immortality) or should the current crop of Medleys be cast into Limbo with the rest of their failed ancestors?

None of the ITF content was in use as far as I can recall, since I'd all but abandoned all travel unless absolutely necessary for a BlackOp.

I remember the Medleys! Glad that there's a possibility of them returning.

ITF is an exception to the rule regarding EPs. Proceed, but I'd probably chew you out if it were any other pack. ;)

Just to confirm something. Provided I grow the original life fruit and death bush and I catch the original death fish, I can then clone them to my heart's content for immortals, can't I?

I was going to do so, but then thought I'd double check.

When creating our founder for the dynasty, can we also create a pet/pets to accompany our founder?
