Question may you build a subway station?

Yes. You would need to own the lot that you place the subway on.

Hello - I don't know if this has been covered, when calculating the portraits value, do we use the original value or the appreciated value?

Ok I think one of the clubs I placed has a subway connected to it. Aquarius? Or was it the Prosper one? Anyway does that count? Can I keep it?

If a club already has a subway attached, then you're good to go.

Metro - If we can not place a Club down can we try and build one ourselves? Likewise with the Studio. Can we use the Edit World placing lot feature?

I had to use World Editor to place them in Sunset Valley.  They wouldn't fit anywhere otherwise.  My opinion is that you should use the existing clubs rather than building one so that everyone will have access to the same things.

Agreed. Not everyone is willing to mess with the World Editor or be required to do that. I know I'd be a little leery, mainly because I've never done it before.

World Editor is required to make the lots the right size in Sunset Valley for the clubs.  samoht was asking if it's ok to use it.  I think it's fine because it's the only way to put the clubs in.  He also asked about building the clubs from scratch as an alternative.  That's the one I don't think should be allowed.  It would require the use of Edit Town and the clubs could be customized by the player, which wouldn't make it a fair deal across the board.  Better to use the pre-made clubs with the World Editor.

Ah, okay. I don't think I had quite woken up yet!  :D Yes, if someone is willing to dabble with the World Editor to make the lots the right size, I can sign off on that. But, as far as which clubs are allowed to be placed, they need to be stock clubs, and not ones built from scratch.

The Bridgeport clubs will already be in your commercial buildings library, along with the buildings from Ambitions.

I've got a question. What would happen if a meteor hit your Dynasty home, but no one died, and your museum was underground? Would you still have to abandon your Dynasty?

If there's enough left after the meteor to continue playing, then by all means, keep going.

Well I tried and failed. Strike one.

I couldn't get my founder married so I could move someone on the lot in time for her lifestage change. I'm glad I didn't create a thread yet. And I have so many good pics that I was going to open the thread up with. Oh well. You know what they say. Try try again.  :D

Iím sorry it didnít work out with the spouse PlatnumDymnd. An advice for next time I didnít think of when starting myself is to check out the neighbourhood in advance and decide who it will be - then restart with your founder and have them go over to that person and make friends as soon as possible.

I somehow subconsciously keep checking for good spouse material even after needing it, so for anyone starting in Bridgeport I just saw that the pretty "blonde" (with black eyebrows) Matilda in the Art Central house is artistic with a little paint skill.

I agree you really do need to plan a spouse ahead of time. That way the spouse can get working on the painting skill as soon as possible.

Thank you. I really don't want players to go through major town renovations just to add those 2 careers from the studio. On the other hand, more options is always good. I'm on the fence with it. For now it's a no.

Well, glad I was starting over anyway.  I just found this post on not adding the studio and I had put one in my new dynasty.  I must have overlooked this post.  I thought I had read where we could add the studio.  In SV and RV, there are lots that they will fit on without moving things around or deleting them.  I have not been in TB forever.  Anyway, I am glad I was rereading these posts, now I will not add one in my new dynasty. :D

Yeah, Salty, you did see a post where I decided it was fine to add the studio, so ignore that older one.

Oh, ok.  Ya know how us 90 year olds get sometimes, blind and can't remember anything, lol.  Will be starting another dynasty soon.  I really hate starting over, but yours is going very well, so you know how it is. :)

Ok so this forum thread is VERY long and I can't seem to search within it for the answer I need, so apologies if this had already been asked!
The rules state -
Each generation needs to use a computer to purchase one building and one property (2 separate ownerships). The property purchased by one generation must be fully upgraded before Ambrosia can be eaten.

What does the '2 separate ownerships mean? The founder owns one and their spouse the other? Or is it simply just 2 town lots?

I'm on my 2nd attempt and doing ok so far, but then I am only on 2nd generation!!

Thanks. I'm going to try and make one more Man Dynasty update before the family heads south to Florida next Saturday for a week to visit my wife's folks. I was lamenting to Pam about the reality that I don't think there's any way I can finish the Tournament Finale in time before we go. I have not even started. There's only so many hours in the day.

Good luck with your new attempt.

It just means that the ownerships are all unique. For example, your Founder purchases Building A and Property B. Then generation #2 would purchase Building C and Property D. I suppose the word "Separate" really is not even needed given you'd have to buy different real estate anyway. :)

Well I feel better starting over now. I didn't see the ok to add the studio so I have been playing without it. I kept checking back but I must have missed it. I had picked my potential hubby. His name was Marshall Curious or something like that.We talked for hours. He was single and I thought... Listen to me with the 'we' stuff like I'm in there. I thought THEY hit it off. But when I went to call him, he wasn't in my call list. Then I went to find him in town and couldn't find him. So I had to move on to Wei and that didn't work. They weren't connecting fast enough. Then I found a sexy rocker guy and he was going to be the one. Then I zoom in for pictures to find he's a vampire! And now she's one day from her birthday and there's no way I can get it. I keep getting the move in social but not the propose. :( I was going to start a thread with my pics showing her relationship problems but there's no happily ever after so who cares? I was so bummed and I couldnt share because my internet was down all day.

I keep getting the move in social but not the propose.

The way the romantic socials progress and become available is a little tricky if you're not already aware of that. You need to jump through some hoops first: Confess Attraction > Ask to Go Steady > Propose Marriage. With each of these keep your eye on the reactions of your target in the top left screen. You want reactions like Very alluring, or Extremely Irresistible. Simply doing one romantic social is not going to give your target those kinds of intense reactions. You need to cue up 3 or 4 different romantic socials and see how it progresses.

It's pretty sad really. I understand the social process. It just wasn't happening for me... Her. I got the "try for baby" but I wasn't trying to get pregnant BEFORE they come in the house. I think my sim may be a little hot in the pants to be allowing the woohoo interactoin before even the going steady and stuff.  ;D

I didn't see it in the rules but I think I saw it in this thread. They can't move in until they were married right? Like they can't live together before they get married. The only reason I was rushing the marriage was because I needed to get control to get them to do the portrait.

The next thing I'm going to change is her career. I think I lost a lot of time with her going to work. She will have to sell veggies or something for money this time.

I may still post the story. I'm still on the fence.
