Congrats, Samoth!
I'm far away from this achievement, still at the planing stage. So much only: I thought about doing seven deadly sins, but that seemed to... bad and might not be childproof for storytelling. So now I chose the seven virtues. Lets see how this works out.

Yep, I had a brief confused moment when I discovered that the link for the images is above it not below it and that was why they were all showing up in the wrong place. She completed everything, she is my first ever Sim to make and eat Ambrosia and I am so happy!  ;D

Metro,

I'm having some trouble with my game file.  I'm not able to get the family home from Egypt.  It's getting stuck on the loading screen.  I've done a forced exit three times already.  And now I'm trying to get them home with a previous save file.  No luck so far.  It seems to be stuck at the same place on the loading screen.  I may need to go back to the file I saved prior to the vacation.  Will it be ok if I do that and just make up the time I've lost?

Pam, so sorry to hear, all that work on mixology  and now you have to do it all over again. Wish you a lot of patience.
I had a smaller tech issue, I had 3 deaths on one party so game gave me some bugs, again map tags were gone, none came to another 2 parties legendary host were hosting, and finaly it froze while processing when Sim was added to family by marriage. It was processing for good 15 minutes until I gave up (I managed to make and drink a cup of coffee in meantime). I lost only 1 Sim day, and game looks fine now, but still not shore what to do when things like this happen but to quit game (I had to use task manager to turn it of).

What a bummer! I am quite pleased with Gabriella's progress, she is already at level 8 Writing and still a YA. Just need to take a break for building the mansion to save up for her Properties.  :-\ I can't wait to be able to finish or even get the second floor done on it! But with only $12,000 a day it is a bit slow at advancing, I am hoping that when Cemre can catch Deathfish he will get a perfect one and Diana can clone it on the Omni. Talking of the Omni Plant I am having trouble, when Diana is told by me to go and order some Omni Seeds the action disappears when she stands by the mailbox but she does nothing?

This came up before somewhere. Do a search with Omni plant. I'll try and find it too.

I found that Leto and Revolution have had this, no one seems to have found a way around it.  :-\

Now I know you can't kill any sims of your own in the dynasty but what about sims not under your control if its not cheat related.

Tell me what you had in mind and what purpose it would serve you.

I didn't lose all my Mixology progress after all.  I went back to a different save and was able to return to Sunset Valley finally.

About the Omni, it's a bug since Late Night came out.  Most people cannot order Omni seeds.  EA has to patch it.

I'm not sure if this has been covered or not, but are we allowed to use the time machine?

Yes. There's obviously a risk of returning with a child, so if that happens, make me aware of it and we'll go from there.

Too be safe I would get a legitimate Heir before time travelling since then it would just be a spare child. Also is it possible to duplicate Ambrosia? Diana can buy the Replicator thingy but I do not know whether to save it for a Unique reward or not.

Yeah, I believe Aria is using that technique in her Dynasty.

@samoht04

It really wouldn't matter if there's already a legitimate heir before using the time machine because the rules stipulate that all heirs must be the result of a natural pregnancy.  Children from a time machine don't qualify.

Yes, you can store Ambrosia.  While your Sim is making it, stop the action when he/she is stirring it in the bowl.  Then save the bowl to the replicator.  When it's replicated later, it will be fully cooked normal quality Ambrosia ready to eat.  It can definitely be one of your unique LTRs.  Just make sure only one of your Sims buys it..

I will probably give it to Gabriella as her Unique because Diana already has 4 LTHR and I need to keep options open. Diana can go buy another Collection Helper and sell it.  :D

I've got a question. Can you marry a ghost as a spouse using the Oh My Ghost! Opportunity? From what I heard, they don't have any special abilities that would let you cheat.

Do the ghosts age normally?  I thought they had a longer lifespan?

I think ghosts have a longer lifespan. I played a legacy once where I brought back the founders spouse using the oh my ghost opportunity. I moved him out because he was annoying me and six generations later he was still living in the town. He had the family orientated trait and he had loads of children.

The Oh My Ghost opportunity is not allowed on existing spouses because then you'd be tampering with the life extension ban.

I have looked on the guide to find a list of skills available on the Sims 3. I can find the list for vanilla,world adventure and ambitions but not for late night. Is that a separate list.
So far I have used:
Cooking
Painting
Logic
Athletics
Handy
Fishing
I cannot use writing,martial arts,charisma,gardening or inventing as they have all already been maxed.

By my reckoning that leaves me with:
Sculpting.
Photography.
Nectar making.
Mixology.

Am I missing any?

Guitar and all of the band instruments. If you go to the main Guide home page, hover your mouse over the blue sidebar that says "Skills." That will pop out everything in the game.
