As for mixology, try not to buy drinks on house since then Sims won't order drinks from her (having drink already). Having high skill, knowing how to make drinks served in that bar, and having few good unique drinks should help. And let her moonlight in hot spots. You may try to sent all family in bar to order drinks from her and to have them under control. You should also chose her a career with less working hours, no matter which one you choose, since moonlighting is time consuming (and you need 60 Sims to serve, still not shore is that 60 different Sims or orders).

To be honest, folks, I'm not sure why I made the ruling to not allow a studio to be placed. But, that's about to change!  :D (In fact, I need to remember to mention that placing a studio in a Tournament challenge town is okay as well). Perhaps it was because the studio is so large that players would need a certain level of expertise to place it vs the other buildings and I just felt it would be simpler? I don't know. But, if you know how to place it — go for it.

I am not sure why I had missed that either, for some reason, I thought we could place it.  I had not used it myself either, but I was shocked that I even got it in there.  I remember the post some, Metro was talking about the size and finding a place for it to fit because so many in SV were having a problem.  I put mine over on Pinnacle point.  I had to put it kind of side ways, but it did fit.  I am like Pam, acting would be perfect for my new addition and with the house almost full and a couple of elders are at home now.  I am trying to keep most of them working, so they won't all play instruments and max out those skills.  I think I am getting more and more confused now, lol. :)
Is it true that cannibals don't eat clowns because they taste funny?

I took out 2 of the lots in Sunset Valley - the empty ones up on the road near the junkyard.  The studio fit there nicely.  I haven't used it yet, I thought that Achilles might be an actor as he rolled Star Quality but he ended up going with Renaissance Man due to his genius trait.

OK another question...
Apollo (g1) has 6 best friends, only his spouse is in the household, all others were neighbors or coworkers.  Now Aphrodite (g3) has become best friends with Apollo.  Since Apollo did not count Aphrodite as his best friend, can Aphrodite still count Apollo as one of hers? 

I am thinking that is goes one way...  it doesn't matter who Apollo listed as long as no other immortal (other than Aphrodite) has listed Apollo.  As opposed to both ways where Aphrodite can only list Apollo if Apollo listed her.

This got quite confusing at the end of your post.  However, from the middle part...  yes, Aphrodite can count Apollo as one of her best friends as long as no other Immortal counts him as a best friend.

It was quite confusing as I was thinking it, and the longer I thought about it the more confused I made myself.  ::) 

Thanks for the confirmation.

I almost let my generation 3 age up without her toddler portrait.  I caught it the evening before her birthday though so all is good so far.

I'm thinking about trying this out, but I have two little questions:
Can female immortals get their offspring without having a spouse in the house? (Even if they are not gen 7.)
How do I ban vampires from the city?

Leontine, in rules it is stated that "All offspring must result from natural pregnancies of Sims living in the Dynasty house." Except for gen 7, so it is a no to single mothers in dynasty except for generation 7.
And as for vampires, you can't ban them from game, but it is not allowed to turn into vampire or to marry a vampire.
Good luck with dynasty, it is very fun, you'll see!

No, generations 1 through 6 need to have a spouse living in the house.

How do I ban vampires from the city?

If you have Late Night installed, you cannot ban vampires from the town/city.  The ban against vampires refers to vampires in the family.  No marriage to vampires and no turning into a vampire because of the extended lifespans of vampires.  You can interact with them, just don't have any in your family that's living in the house.

Thank you!
So I'll give it a try all by myself first... You don't need to see me failing already with gen 2 or so. Which will probably be the case. :-P

Could someone provide a list of which are properties and which are businesses?  Not sure how I can get 8 of each?

I also wanted to place some of the Late Night buildings, but can't figure out where I am actually supposed to put them, none of the lots are big enough, and you can't make your own like in sims 2, do I need to delete properties already there?
We could learn a lot from crayons:
Some are sharp, some are pretty,
Some are dull, some have weird names,
And all are different colors....but
They all exist very nicely in the same box.
