And make her eat watermelon day and night starting with the moment of Try for Baby.  Not just three watermelon.  Not just six watermelon.  She needs to eat all the watermelon in the world!  And nothing but watermelon.  No meals for her!  Just watermelon!  :)

I'm bummed. I had my founder wife make a bunch of servings of ambrosia and stored them in the fridge.  My 2nd generation heir was just a day or two from becoming a young adult.  I was having her work on super maxing sculpting when I realized she was hungry. I paused the game really quick and went to look at my founder he had already made his way to the kitchen and ate something, the glow of ambrosia was floating between him and the fridge, there was a sinking suspicion that he had ate it, I checked his age, and sure enough he had some huge bummer going to have to restart my dynasty all over again, this would be my 4th time I think :( oh well I'll just take a little break from sims for a few days.

Hello from another forum-newbie!

I've been cruising the board these last couple of days (recent find although I'm an avid player of several years) and came upon this challenge just the other day. It sounds like fun and I'll be giving it a go, already have tons of ideas but there's one thing I'm wondering about - what if I want a gay sim to join the dynasty (as one of the immortals)? Does adoption count as a 'natural' conception in that instance or would that be a no-no?

Just curious really. I'm looking to change up my usual gameplay and thought maybe I could try it within the challenge if that's what I'll be playing for a while. :)

And sorry if that's been asked before. I must admit 117 pages seems a little daunting to read. *bag over head*

Hi Natitude, and welcome to the forum!  The rules state:  "•All offspring must result from natural pregnancies of Sims living in the Dynasty house."  Adoption would mean bringing in a child from different parents, so I'm pretty sure it wouldn't qualify.

Hello, thanks and yeah, I figured as much.  :) A *bit* of a pity though, considering the times we live in but a game is a game is a game. ;)

Right, I'm off to start this thing up! I'll report back when I've gotten somewhere.  ;D

Who was having invisible sims? I'm pretty sure someone had them. Four of my five family members turned invisible after Tamsen took a photo of Holly. Camera stopped working after that so there might be some bugs in it. Tamsen and first immortal Franklin gained back their visible form by visiting Central Park. They couldn't take the toddler with them so she's still invisible and nobody can interact with her and put her to crib or feed her. :(  Looks like Holly is permanently invisible too. Can I reset Holly and Summer (toddler)? Or go back to previous save in case it doesn't help?

Have you tried restarting your game?  Many times it's just a rendering issue that's fixed by a fresh start of the game.  However, if that doesn't work, you may go back to a previous save.

So I have to know, I'm playing a bit on my dynasty on the sideline of my other stories. But now I have a question. I'm soon getting Late Night, many have gotten it.
So are skills from Late Night okay to use as supermax skills? And what about opportunities, jobs and about living in Bridgeport for your dynasty? And would Vampires be allowed?

Hi Lena, stayed tuned. I want to knock out some key articles for Carl and the Guide asap, but today or tomorrow I'd also like to at least point Bridgeport Dynasty players in the right direction if they want that town as their choice — i.e. specific lot choice and purchased items necessary to bring starting funds down to $1600.

To be honest, I just read something in the Late Night board where Carl was having big problems with opportunities because of cue canceling. I would be really cautious of starting a brand new Dynasty in Bridgeport until more bugs are uncovered.

Sorry if this has been asked before but does the seventh generation sim just have to get pregnant from anyone in town or does it still need to be someone living in the house?

[Adding to Your Household
  • Spouses and spare children are not tied to the same restrictions as immortals. They are free to choose any LTW, career, skills, etc.
  • The firstborn child of any generation is targeted as an immortal and has restrictions: Their LTW must be different than other immortals, their career must be different than other immortals, and the skill requirement before eating Ambrosia as an Elder must be a different maxed skill than other maxed skills of immortals.
  • All offspring must result from natural pregnancies of Sims living in the Dynasty house.
  • SimBots may be obtained from a LTR or an Inventor can make them. However they must immediately be released into the wild.
  • You may choose all traits of offspring.
  • No Sim may ever be moved out of the household by any means. Spouses and non-immortal offspring are to live a full and natural life and their eventual death can never be expedited in any way.
  • Your first 6 immortals can be male or female and their spouses must live in the Dynasty house until their death.
  • Your 7th generation firstborn must be a female. She will need to become pregnant without adding a spouse to the household to bring in the 8th and final immortal.


aDrake, on first page of this tread you have rules so I recommend to reread them. I bold you a part that is specificly directed to your question.

EDIT: Samoht, you were faster:)

Lol, I replied to the same question in another Thread (Pam's I think) and then it appeared here so I copied it over and deleted the other one.  :)

I guess my question is, is the seventh gen. allowed to get pregnant with a town sim, or does it have to be someone in the household, I guess the two lines in the rules are confusing me :-\

Yes, you'd most definitely have the 7th generation — which has to be female — get pregnant from a townie. The townie can't move in because the 8th generation needs the available slot.

Thank you Metro, I was thinking maybe one of the Immortals had to do it, which was kinda grossing me out :)

Indeed. I doubt it would even be possible because the 7th generation would be blood related to all other existing immortals, so Romantic socials probably would not even come up.

I think Sims stop recognizing their relatives at great grandfather/great grandmother/great grandchild, anything that goes beyond this is just acquaintance or friend or whatever. So technically the 7th generation could flirt with many sims living on the lot, however gross it is.

Anyways, thank you Pam for answering my question. Reloading the game didn't solve the invisibility problem so I'll go back to previous save. And thank you Metro for answering my previous question about the China child. :)

Attention potential Bridgeport Dynasty players—

You now have the green light to begin if you wish. Check the rules in the first post of this thread and you'll see which lot you need to purchase as well as the two additional objects to bring starting funds to $1600 simoleans.

Vampires are banned for the Immortal Dynasty Challenge as they bring too many differences and changes to normal Sims that would give them unfair advantages—namely, faster skilling and a longer life.

Yes, you are right.  Blood line ends at great great grandparents.  I guess the game just stops recongnizing them at that point.  I have to be careful, almost had relatives start flirting again, but I caught it.  I would still not even think of using a part of the family for getting my seventh sim pregnant though and yes, it is gross, lol. :)
Is it true that cannibals don't eat clowns because they taste funny?

So just to be clear, I'm only at generation 2 now so don't need it now but if I later want can I use lets say mixology as a supermax skill??

Absolutely, Lena. I don't know Late Night content that well yet given I've only been playing it for a day and a half, but aside from the vampire ban, I really don't see any reason to disallow other LN content.

I know Edit Town is off limits except for the specific exceptions listed in the rules.  But when I installed Late Night, the game didn't automatically install any of the venues or bars in my Dynasty game.  This means there are no places for my band to play, no opportunity for a mixologist to get work, and no place to go and meet with the celebrities or townspeople.  Metro, would you consider letting us use Edit Town to put in a bar or club or two?  Without the new venues, the new skills aren't going to be very useful for us.

Good point. And that reminds me that the Bridgeport Public Library also does not have a Book Corral for skill books.  ::)  I'm on it.

Excellent!  Thank you.  That sound of running footsteps is me dashing out to build a bar or two.   ;D
