Bronte Supermax skill painting.Lifetime wish to be an illustrious Author. Career painting. She has also maxed the writing skill.

Kumquat Supermax skill logic. Lifetime wish to be a world renowned surgeon. Career medical. She hasn't maxed any other skills at all.

Sunset Supermax skill athletic. Lifetime wish to be a superstar athlete. Career athletics. Again she has no other maxed skills.

Eskarina Supermax skill inventing.No lifetime wish chosen yet but I was thinking of going with living in the lap of luxury. Career Inventing.

I have decided not to follow a plan and just wing it, I have had many different ones and still mess up. Sorry I always get the LTW's mixed up but I have had the Illustrious and Professional Author completed in the Character Legacy. Illustrious were Agnes and Daffy, Professional Author was Jerry. All I know is that the next gen will be a Sculptor.  ;) I even have a name for the next Generation child.  8)

Only $14,000, 2 Cooking Skill Points, A Deathfish and 2 Friends stand in Diana's way!  ;D They are currently in China. Diana studying Cooking and Chris is Fishing, he is at level 6. Diana is at level 8 of Cooking and still 2 days to go. $14,000 is all she needs to get to Lvl 10 in the Career! I am so exited! She needs to replenish her friends and make 2ish more. Won't be hard as she has Level 6 Charisma and the Long Distance Friends LTW. She is about 80 days old!  :D I hope she makes it, probably will be very close. Gabriella's on level 5 of Writing already and she has only been writing for 3 days. She also made $9,000 for a Painting Op but I don't know if it will count for her Career or not.  :-\

 ???  Sadness has invaded my game.  As of today every time I open the game it immediately crashes to desktop. 

Is it permissible to move the entire challenge lot to a new save file or is starting over the only option?

There could very well be something about the household which is causing the crash which means moving the lot might carry the problem right with you. I recommend a complete reinstall and a fresh new file (yeah, I know that blows). Have you shut your computer down completely and let it sit for a while before booting it up again?

I think it might have been the heat, got to love playing on a laptop.  I got in after posting and it played just fine with no crashes so hopefully it just wanted a day off.  I am going to give it tonight off and see how it does tomorrow.

You can buy a fan for your laptop to sit on that will help keep it from getting so hot.  It's just a platform about the size of a laptop that has a fan built in.  It plugs into a USB port on your laptop.

I do have a question.  In Pam's dynasty I know she puts the furniture of each immortal in the room where the museum pieces are, I have done basically the same thing, only, each separate room also has a bedroom where they sleep.  Is that acceptable or does all of the pieces need to be somewhere where the immortal doesn't sleep?  I know the rules states a museum, but I was just thinking that I needed to find out for sure.  It is no problem building another museum and putting everything back into it, but it actually looks kinda neat in their own rooms.  There is no other paintings or portraits in these rooms, except for I need for the dynasty.  Just checking, would rather find out now than later. :)

I'll let Metro answer that one, Salty.  I don't know if it really matters if you put the items in a specific "museum" room.  Either way, you only count the value of the museum items in the final score.  So, whatever Metro says on this is fine with me.

Salty, you can locate your museum items wherever and however you choose.

Oh yeah I have one.  I end up replacing it about once every 6 months because apparently the bouncing around from my lap to the foot stool and back is too much movement for them so they stop turning.  And it is about time to get a new one it seems.  ::)

I figured that was the case, was just wondering.  I had my house so spread out with rooms everywhere, it just looks a little neater than it did.  It is still a big house.  At least I don't have to worry about them falling all over each other, lol. :D

My daughter decided that one of the members of my dynasty family really needed to be a vehicle enthusiast. My question is seeing as she has made friends with her scooter can I use him as one of her unique best friends. Also is it possible to use Simbots as best friends.

Ha ha. :) Sure, why not? As long as the "thing" is listed in the Relationships tab as a Best Friend...cars, scooters, Simbots — they all work for me.

Does that 'My Best Friend' LTHR with the Simbot give your Sim an Instant Best Friend?

Yes, it does.  Just remember it can only be used by one of your Immortals if you count it as one of the 3 unique LTRs.

Are we allowed to use the collecting skill as a supermax skill. I don't know that I want to use it but was just wondering if could. I like to know that I have options.

Rachel, I'm sure I remember this question coming up before, somewhere in the previous 150+ pages.  And I'm also quite sure the answer was no, because there are no levels to the collecting skill.

No, the Collecting skill is not a SuperMax option for exactly the reason Schipperke gave.

samo, congrats! :) I'm assuming you'll fill everyone in on the details in your story thread. That's the place for any kind of updates.
