I've had a sim live for 126 days, and he wasn't a vego, or an athlete, just a lucky, guy, I guess :)

Straight from the horse's mouth...

Christopher (Steel) Dreamweaver passed away at age 117 days.

Okay, I was bored and wanted to know. I needed my daily Dreamweaver fix. And, no, Pam, you're not a horse.  ;D

I think the longest I had a sim live was 112 days.  And while I can't honestly say I was looking for him to die, he retired at about 90 days old and I was really getting tired of having someone puttering around the house all day, I can tell you. 

The Big GR must have been on holiday.  Geeze, a job that important and you think his boss would hire a temp or something.

Hi, I have a question. I just sent my current generation and his twin travelling for the first time. I gave them both the Jetsetter and the Prepared Traveller LTRs. I sent Jay (The current generation immortal-to-be) out on the adventure to collect mercury in Shang Simla. He got stuck up near The Terracotta Army, and can't move anywhere. Could I reset him?

Quite confused here. I'm doing a third (sigh) attempt at the Immortal dynasty, and I've had 2 pairs living in my house - Founder+Spouse, and a couple chained to the sculpture studio and easel respectively. Both pairs tried for a baby the same evening, about the same time - the artistic couple were an hour or two later. The two kids - Mordred to the Founder, Isabella to the Artistic Couple - were born the same day, and had their baby-to-toddler age up on the same day. They haven't been anywhere near lifefruit, makeovers, or anything else I can think of that decreases age.

Yet Mordred, the one born *Before* Isabella, is now a day younger.  ???  >:(

What should I do? Should I age Mordred up on the same day as Isabella, or on the day the game thinks it's his birthday?

This is a glitch that the game gets sometimes for no reason.  I've even had it happen to twins.  I say just go ahead and age Mordred up on the same day as Isabella, if you're sure that Isabella is the one with the correct age.

Oh phew, that's a relief. Thought it was something stupid that I had done (Wouldn't be the first time...). :P

I'm not sure if Isabella has the correct age, but I know that both were originally the same age. So I'll go with aging up Mordred alongside Isabella.

I just had that happen to my twins in my dynasty.  I got the first message it was going to be one twins birthday and usually the second message comes right after that.  I waited and nothing came up, so I looked and the second twin was a day later.  When I got the notification that it was the first twins birthday and aged up the second after the first had her cake.  Now they are the same age again.  Weird how that works out. :) Whew, did that make sense, lol.

Are the both children of the founder? Or one from each couple. Because I thought it didn't matter about non mortal children. If Mordred is the founders son, then Isabella has nothing to do with his mortally.

OR am I just reading this wrong?

Yeah that. Mordred is the future immortal the artistic couple and their daughter all have to die. Just out of interest why did you choose for the other couple to have a child is it to provide someone to do sculptures and paintings later on.

Maybe also for Isabella to be Mordred's wife in the future? Sorry but after Jocelyn this raising a spouse thing is my current interest XP

Either way I think Castaras may be concerned that there may be some bug that is messing up Mondred's aging process, so she's using Isabella as a guide to make sure he's on the right track.

One from each couple, both born at the same time. So was a little worried that their birthdays were no longer on the same day, because various things in the game can decrease age, which aren't allowed until you take the first bite of ambrosia. Didn't want to have to start over *again*  :D.

RJ is spot on. Raise my own spouse alongside the 2nd immortal, and it's easy to make sure they've got a high relationship bar, and that the spouse will compliment the 2nd immortal and the founder's abilities (in my case, Natural Cook and Neat are essential).

As we read all the dynasties that are posted on the forum we gain experience and think of new ideas and ways to improve ourselves. That's the great thing about the forum  :D

Something I just noticed in regards to graves of mortals:

  • 3. You can make a private family cemetery on a lot that you’ve purchased via the computer.

1)  How do you go about getting a private cemetery if edit town is off-limits, except to place Ambitions/LN lots?  Wouldn't you have to change the lot type?
2)  This is something I do regularly with regular legacy families, so I know how it can be a huge benefit to a household.  I would think that changing a vacant lot into a cemetery would be against the rules, as it's extremely, extremely cheap, and it doesn't really take a whole lot before it starts turning a considerable profit.  Although I suppose profit could be avoided by simply not placing any mausoleums (you need 1 for the level 1 requirement)...

Or do you mean simply placing graves on another type of existing lot?

The lot doesn't need to be designated as a private cemetary through Edit Town.  As long as you own the lot, you can place the graves on it.  I put mine on the lot directly across the street.  It was fenced off to keep it separate.

That will work out well in Barnacle Bay, since there's at least 1 lot that's entirely undeveloped.

I know the answer will probably be no but it never hurts to ask. Would it be possible to marry a vampire into the family so long as you take him or her straight to the lab to get him/her turned back into a human.

I'm just starting a dynasty and have a question.  After your immortal has gotten their 3 unique LTRs, can they buy other ones if they have the points for them?  If so, can these extra LTRs overlap with other immortals as long as all the LTR in question is not one of the unique LTRs for any immortal?

The situation I'm thinking of is Prepared Traveler.  It seems like it would be advantageous to have several immortals with this LTR to get longer trips abroad.  Is this okay as long as all immortals have 3 LTRs that no other immortal has?

Thank you,

Kat
