Salty, you mean to reset her even if she is not controlable ghost?
I need Metros confirmation for that. I'm not shore can I call this gamebreaker, I can't store ambrosia anywhere cause she is eating leftovers and go through walls, she use bed so I must have some extra sleeping places for other Sims. She use bathtub so I had to by more of them while sculptors were sculpting metal sculptures, etc. Also, living Sims often stop their action for her freaking them out, and top was when she helped her grandson to blow candles on birthday cake.
Waiting for your decision Metro.

OK Metro, I would appreciate your answer, I'm in a built mode, cleaning the lot to built a new home. Ghost is resting on a bed, and with moveobjects I'm able to delete bed with ghost on it.
Can I do that please? I play in window mode so I'll keep an eye for your answer and won't do it if you disagree, but this might be nice way to solve this problem, so please?

Thank you very much, you are a kind man.

And to avoid posting just a thank note, is that other building cheat allowed, I know you were asked about it, but didn't catch the decision, constrainFloorElevation cheat? (to build that sushi bar for a dynasty)
thank you again for quick response

As long as they do not affect game play, and I'm quite certain that none do — any building cheat is fine to use.

Except buydebug, right?  Want to try an aquarium on my lot but I'd have to use buydebug to get the fogger.

@Anushka:

For future reference, yes, you can reset an uncontrollable Sim/ghost.  Sometimes ghosts get stuck while they're out haunting and resetting them puts them back into their urn/grave.

Ok so Odessa, the wife of my founder (she has been dead for ages), is now alive and well on my lot.  Her tombstone, which was in my backyard, is gone and I'm absolutely sure I didn't do any opportunity/action to resurrect her.  I'm going to use moveobjects and delete her, it's just sad because in the end I wanted 8 immortals and 8 ghosts on one lot :(

So, one day she's a ghost, and the next she's not?

Precisely.  She showed up in my nursery.  If I wasn't tending the babies at the time who knows how long it would have taken me to notice she was back!  I've never had anything like this happen before, my only theory is that this may have something to do with locked doors.  I'm doing a baby/toddler raising experiment and I had 2 babies and a mother locked in my basement (Not as bad as it sounds!  It's like a full house in there) and on the first night Odessa popped in there as a ghost.  I didn't notice her over the next couple days and I wonder if she was unable to leave and just eventually reset?

Interesting theory. But, the tombstone up and vanishing? I guess that coincided with her resetting if that's what indeed happened.

Yes the tombstone is gone, and in the family tree she shows up as a non-ghost.  She's been deleted now, sometime soon I'll try to reproduce the event so we can be aware of a bug to look out for.

@TommyT:

That's a most bizarre bug!  My gut feeling is that it's unrelated to the locked doors.  Ghosts have been having some strange behavior lately, although that one really tops them all.  I wonder if it's just a huge glitch where the game forgot that Odessa was dead.  So sorry you had to delete her.

Did you have any ambrosia anywhere on lot? If so she might eat it and that would resurrect her.

I don't know if it's related, but my sims family tree shows that Shark Rackett's father is still alive, and Shark himself is 107 days.

I also noticed, when a great-great grandchild is born, it is listed as best friend to the great great grandfather, wonder if the family tree stops at great grandparents and children, that kinda bites.  Oh well, at least I still have a tree, no worries, just wanted to see if anyone else is finding this out that has gotten that far. :)

I've read through the topic, but some parts of it have been a while.  So I may have missed an answer to this question if it was asked prior.  Are you allowed to move in people your Immortal Family isn't married to?  Like a girlfriend or whatnot?  Also is polygamy allowed?  I realize the game won't let you actually marry two people at the same time, but you can marry one, get the no jealousy reward, then break it off, marry again, and everyone lives in the house.

Are you allowed to move in people your Immortal Family isn't married to?  Like a girlfriend or whatnot?

Immortals, spouses, and the offspring are it for the household. So, you need to get married and then bring a spouse into the household, not before.

Also is polygamy allowed?  I realize the game won't let you actually marry two people at the same time, but you can marry one, get the no jealousy reward, then break it off, marry again, and everyone lives in the house.

You can marry twice. I did this with my Founder to enable a certain strategy I'm employing. But, any spouse has to live a full life with no influence from you on their life span. Once a spouse would die, then your immortal is free to bring in another spouse.

I had my immortal marry Agnes also, you can sell her car and she brings 20,000 simoleons with her.  It is a nice chunk of change to start with.  I just kept building on the funds until I had enough to really build a nice house and just kept building and building, etc. lol.

I mentioned this in my Chronos story thread, but thought I should pose the question here.

I sent Hera (founder) and Billy (spouse) to China.  Billy went home early, but Hera stayed for her whole trip, and now she won't go home.  I found a save file from right before they went on vacation, am I allowed to go back and use it?

That's best to post questions here because I don't get to all stories sometimes.

Yes. I didn't even know you could send people home separately. How is that even possible? If Billy goes home then the file would only be played from the home town.

I just had him as the active player and used the phone to "return Home".  A screen popped up and I got to choose who went home.  I only chose him and he went home, leaving me in China with Hera.  I thought I was ok with this, because I could focus on getting her a visa 3, but then she wouldn't go home when her trip was over.

The Sim who goes home early just leaves and the player stays in the foreign country with the remaining Sim(s) until the vacation is over or until the remaining also go home.
