Five minutes?  Just wait.  The Clan Douglas Dynasty game was taking around half an hour to load and save at the end.  And I have a good computer, that normally loads very quickly.  I think it was just the sheer size of the file.

I am up to about 10 minutes per save and load.  And the longer I play the more often it crashes for no reason so I save every morning right before they head off to work and school and after every birthday/change appearance/buy or build mode.

ARRRRGHH darn portraits, just made me have to start round 3.  And the founder already had 6 best friends, 6 oportunities and the building required!

*about to kill myself*

5. Purchase 3 Lifetime Rewards not purchased by other immortals

Just to clarify, this means that my founder can purchase more than 3 LTRs, just that his decadents cannot purchase the same ones that he did right? (since there are more than enough LTRs to go around everyone)

Thanks. :)

More than one immortal can have the same LTR. But, every immortal needs to have 3 unique ones that no other immortal has. Those are the qualifying ones to eat Ambrosia.

I seem to think I have asked this before but over christmas fogotten: Does the Simbot in the LTHR come as a Best Friend? Or just a friend? I was thinking as a lifeline if one of my Immortals needs it.

Yeah, the Simbot comes as a Best Friend.

Just remember to use that particular LTR when you have at least one empty slot in your house. If you have a full house the game won't let you have the reward.

I just need to confirm something on page 146 of this thread.  Samoht asked if it was ok to move in another sim, a rich friend of the family, as long as that sim lived out their natural lifespan and didn't subsequently move out.  You said yes.  So, we can move in anybody we want as long as those conditions are met?  The household doesn't have to be limited to immortals and their spouses?

That's correct. That was not my intention to be honest when I wrote the rule set, but it doesn't matter to me one way or the other. As long as you abide by the rule of not moving anyone out and every household member living a full life, then you can move in non-spouses.

I'm sorry if I missed this, but if one of our Sims loses a trait, may we use the code to re-add it?

By "loses a trait" I'm assuming you mean a game glitch. If that's the case, yes. If you are unable to pick all traits during aging up stages, then you're stuck with what the game randomizes for you due to not keeping the mother happy during pregnancy, getting a child on the honor roll, etc.

Yes, I mean a glitch.  My teen got the Charismatic trait when he aged up, but a day later, it had disappeared.  I'll re-add it, thanks.

I might have just inadvertently blown my dynasty. I queued up Hebe to make ambrosia then my real life one year old had a slight diaper malfunction.(he was wiping aforesaid malfunction on the television). I forgot to pause my game and when I came back Mick the mortal had eaten the ambrosia.
Could I continue from a previous save or is it game over.

Err... I have some trouble here... my sim had twins and I have no idea which baby is my firstborn! Turns out that, at the hospital, the game asked me for Aurora's name first so I assumed she had been born the first as well... but then Claudia aged up first from  Baby to Toddler, and then Aurora aged up first from Toddler to Child... so I have them changing places from time to time in the sims-bar-thingie (where your family members are showed). I suppose Aurora should be the firstborn, but right now she appears as the second-born so it's kind of weird.

Nevermind... I thing the game fixed itself because I started it a few seconds ago and the twins are back to normal. Strange thing having twins... I had never had them in TS3.

Yeah, Frey, just for your information in the future, if you named Aurora first, then always treat her as firstborn. She's the targeted immortal. There's always going to be some randomization in age-up times, even with Sims with the same birthday.

Oh no, things were going well until my sims noticed it was getting dark, and ran to the park.  Then down comes a meteor *Bam!* right into my outdoor kitchen, I lost alot, but have been fixing and replacing stuff dutifully, only I just noticed my mailbox is broken and irreplacable apparently.  Is there anyway to fix this so I can click on it and get my mail again?  Because if it stays this way then it's time  to start round six *sigh*

Sorry to hear about this. Meteors...pfffttt...don't get me started.  ::)  Others probably have more info than I do, but if you can obtain a new mailbox via Edit Town or the buydebug cheat, then I'll allow it.

Yeah, I didn't know about buydebug yet, that was pretty interesting stuff, but I can't find a mailbox anywhere in it.  I checked both google and the forums, and found out how to delete it, but when I reloaded it was still broken.  I don't know what else to try :(  I can live without my garbage can, and I miss my super cooking fridge but could live without it, but I need my gems and smelting stuff.  So I guess it's on to another try, next time a meteor drops I will hide the mailbox and garbage can behind a wall!

I read somewhere on the forum that the mailbox can be replaced automagically by the game if you switch lots and then back again to your lot. But, in case switching from your main lot is not allowed, I suggest you'll have to keep the gems and metals you've found without cutting or smelting... By the way, I've recently joined the challenge, but my game is in Russian, so I use Google Translate to translate names of lots or sims' names. Please tell me where to show the results of the challenge?  ???

By "results of the challenge" are you referring to the scores of players that have finished? I established the Dynasty Hall of Fame for that purpose and Schippeke is currently the sole player to hold that honor. I'm guessing Pam will finish in the next week too.

No, I mean that right now I've started my family in Sunset Valley, 15 Summer Hill Court and where can I post the screenshot of my sim I've just taken? Maybe I should start a new thread and place it there?
