Getting opportunities just got a lot easier with Late Night.  Several of my Dynasty members have been getting opportunities to do various things to gain celebrity points.  Can we count these opportunities as BlackOps?

Definitely. I'm getting a ton more ops myself in the article I'm writing on the Lifestyle of the Rich and Famous LTW.

You are not kidding about that, talk about opportunities galore.  I have a sim that is not even in the acting profession that has four stars and almost on her fifth.  That is so cool.  I am glad to hear everyone is enjoying the game so far.  I have not even played my poor dynasty.  I guess I should since I can use some of the stuff from LN.  I guess I just got too wrapped up in all of the new stuff, like everyone else, lol. ;)

Vampires are banned for Bridgeport players.

I don't get this bit? I thought Vampires were in all the towns?  ???

I think that goes for the dynasty players thomas, I am pretty sure anyway.  My vampire has 85 days to live now, so that would not be fair in the dynasty.  I could be wrong, but I did not see who the quote was by.

Me. Vampires are in all towns? For some reason I thought they might be Bridgeport only.

EDIT: Carl thinks they're in all towns. I'll go on that assumption and ban them across the board.

I'm pretty sure there are vampires in my Dynasty game in Sunset Valley.  My band members all suddenly got the wish to meet a vampire when they were jamming in the park one day.  Also I've noticed that some of my sims' acquaintances in their relationship panel now have red margins around them, and wondered if that means they are vampires.  Anyway, what does it mean that "vampires are banned"?  Do you mean that none of the Dynasty household can become a vampire?  Incidentally, I found a bottle of nectar made from plasma fruit at the Consignment shop the other day.  It's ok to drink that, right?

It means nobody in the Dynasty family can become a vampire, nor can they marry a vampire.  No vampires in the Dynasty family.

I don't know about the plasma fruit nectar.  My Sim ate a plasma fruit and it made her sick.

I have vampires in SV where I was playing my other dynasty.  I figured I might as well play them and plopped a few buildings from BP in there and yep, there are vampires and papparazzi and movie stars, yay. :)  The red around their pics in the friends page is definately vampires.

Correct, Pam. It's Dynasty only. By all means, if your Sims want to become friends with vampires, fine.

I'm so annoyed right now! Literally one day after I get to finally make my first immortal with my founder his son dies the next day at school because it was hit by a meteor!! It looked like it killed all the kids in school & took the Grim forever to get through everyone including my heir. So looks like I'll have to start again  :(

Ugh. Sorry to hear that, eza. From where I'm sitting...meteors, the official EA forums, and the vacation bug make up the axis of evil for this forum.

One of my sims was completing an opportunity to speak at the hospital or something like that, and when she left she started getting a moodlet that said she was being hunted by a vampire.   She was on her way home, so I figured she was safe, but can vampires infect our sims without their consent?  Is this something we now have to watch out for?

Perhaps this question belongs in the thread on vampires, but I am concerned about my Dynasty members becoming infected with the vampire disease unintentionally.

@Schipperke — have no fear. A Sim has to ask to be turned. So, you only need to deal with the minor "Hunted" moodlet. Not too bad. Still a little annoying.

Indeed. Becoming a vampire involuntarily would completely suck!

Haha, so good with the jokes!  :P

My sim got the 'Unusual Blemish' moodlet in the period she was transforming so if they don't have that then they are not infected, well that is what I found.

Uhhh, I wish I had Late Night! But I'm saving for World Adventures still, it's taking forever. LN sounds awesome.
I may not be a Twilight fan, but I still love playing with vampires :). And everything else - celebrities, hot tubs, clubs - sounds great! LN really adds a whole lot of new stuff and gameplay, it sounds like.

Ah well, while I save and save for WA, I have my Dynasty coming along swimmingly (do people still say that? 'Swimmingly'?). I'm up to my third generation without anything fatal happening, hurrah! It's great. I was afraid I'd never get to my third Immortal, but it looks like I will. Trevor Starr is a young adult and he's currently working on getting his job to half-way.  :D I love the pressure of juggling this, that, and the other, not to mention making sure my other Immortals don't accidentally die! It really adds another dimnsion to The Sims 3.

Elice :)

Simmeratheart, I still say swimmingly. LOL
OK so I started a dynasty in Sunset Valley and added the filming studios or whetever its called where you go to work if you are in the filming career and I added a dance club, the vampire lounge, dive bar and the club that has to do with water. I just want to make sure this is OK before I get to far in the story. I would have changed an exsisting lot but there really isn't any place to hang out in Sunset Valley.

Templesmom, Metro has amended the rules to allow the addition of Late Night feature lots to our Dynasties:  "•Anyone is free to use Edit Town to assign lots as bars and lounges to take advantage of Late Night's Mixology and band content."

Yea, I think I read it wrong. I thought it meant I could change the type of lot to a bar, but I wasn't sure if adding the lots was OK. But I am glad I am OK to go. Thanks for the response.

While most of you are all excited with Late night, (I hope to get it soon too), I had more technical issue with dynasty. It's like it is cursed! I got HELS and Fast lane so I did manual uninstall and installed everything again, put some additional CC clothes and hairstyles, and am enjoying all that a lot but my dynasty game is crashing after only few minutes of gameplay. I played another game, and even travelled a lot (around 7 trips to all destinations and a lot of exploring) and it run without any problem, but dynasty keep crashing. I have no idea what to do now. I'll probably try again to uninstall and install again, I tried running without CC and same thing. I really feel like that game is cursed :(

Have you tried uninstalling the CC? If that still doesn't work that game may be corrupted.  :-\

@Anushka:

This is going to be a problem for most of us playing this Dynasty challenge.  When the file gets this big, it starts having lots of problems.  I can suggest a couple of things, though, that might help.

1.  Try turning down your graphics settings on the Options menu.
2.  Clean out your game cache.
3.  Completely restart the game often.  This makes it reset the memory and run better.
4.  Check your save games and delete any that have ".bad" as part of the name.

Do I understand correctly that you've just done an uninstall and reinstall?  If you have Windows, did you do a disk cleanup and defrag?  There are some topics on the Technical Help board that will give you specific instructions about these things.
