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.

Rachel

I can't really change the no vampires rule at this point. I hear what you're saying, and it makes sense. But, the way the rule reads is no vampires at all and it's been that way since Late Night was released last November. Sorry.

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?

Yes, you can definitely have overlap with the LTR as long as every immortal has 3 unique to them. I would think almost everyone would pick up things like Steel Bladder eventually. I certainly did.

Well, I am going to try something and it will be alot of work.  I know I deleted the Colour Dynasty file, but I am going to go into the game and totally redo everything.  It will take some hard work and patience, but I have thought about it and I cannot give up.  If after all the work I do to delete and sell everything but the museum pieces and it still crashes and burns, then I will throw in the towel.  I will post updates and some screenshots of maybe some life events that are worth mentioning, but I cannot in good conscience just give up after reaching almost 4 months of work.  This will take some time and I will start a new thread on the Colour Dynasty for updates.  Please stay tuned for upcoming Colour updates.  Thanks to all who read it and I hope I can get it to work. :)

No error 12 yet.  I know I am not adding anything to the household.  Thanks, will probably have an update sometime today.  Not much going on as of yet.  Sunshine still has a way to go before turning teen, because I had to find an earlier save and the one I found, Sunshine had only been a youth for a couple of days.  Oh well, at least for now I can play and it runs alot smoother and the rendering rate is way faster now.  Amazing how downsizing can do that.  These files can only hold so much, then after that it crashes and burns.  Thanks for the comments. :)

Is there any limit on traveling (after generation 2 becomes a young adult, that is)?
Or can the sims travel as often as they want, and for as long as they want?

Also, are the to-be immortals allowed to carry deathflowers? Or must they wait until they've reached the ambrosia stage?

Yep. No limits at all once you're eligible. Just ask Pam what "no limits" means.  :D

No deathflowers for immortals until after they've eaten Ambrosia. Oops. Scratch that. Looks like the rule simply states no deathflowers for non-immortals and there's nothing specific about when immortals/soon-to-be immortals can keep them in inventory. So, because there isn't anything specific, you're fine to place them whenever you wish. Personally, I feel an immortal does not qualify until they've really become an immortal and eaten Ambrosia. I actually thought this had come up before and that was the ruling. @Pam, do you remember this coming up before?

I am not Pam but it is stated under Gift of Immortality...

In this Dynasty Challenge, the act of eating Ambrosia and placing a deathflower in personal inventory is a reward reserved only for your Founder and each generation’s firstborn child upon reaching Elder status (no immortal can eat Ambrosia and place deathflowers in inventory before that). The following tasks must be completed before Ambrosia can be eaten and deathflowers placed in inventory:

Haha. Thanks, Teresa.  ;D I was 95% sure that was there somewhere, but I was looking in the additional restrictions section where deathflowers are also mentioned. Thanks again.

@Alexandria_ — there's the concrete answer on immortals and deathflowers.

Thanks tjsmetana and Metro. I had a feeling I read that somewhere, but I must have skipped over it  :D
Lucky I keep my death flower garden locked up.

Hi Metro,  I had a disappearing trait in one of my sims.  I'm fairly certain I added it correctly, but it's also possibly I wasn't paying attention and just messed it up.  How should I proceed?  Can I cheat to add it back, or do I have to make due without it?

This is a glitch that happens sometimes.  Go ahead and use testing cheats to add the trait back in.

Am I right in assuming that adventure opportunities can count towards the 6 opportunities needed for a Sim to reach immortality?

Nope. Career, Skill, or Special opportunities. Adventure ones are a different class.

Okay, thanks for that.
I didn't write down any of the names of the adventures anyway, so I'm glad I didn't need to retrace that :D

Hi! I found the Immortal Dynasty challenge while looking through the Guide for building tips, and I thought it sounded like loads of fun so I'm giving it a go. Fortunately pretty much all my questions have been asked and answered in the prior 200+ pages (including "No, you can't turn off vampires in Sunset Valley", grr) (and no, I didn't read all 200+ pages, but Search is my friend, yes? :) ), so I got started a couple days ago, setting up in Sunset Valley, with something of a plan for how jobs, skills, and LTWs for the eight generations should go.

So far....I'm astonished at how far the starting player money doesn't go! I do plan to build a big house, over time, but right now mostly what we've got is different areas laid out with the free floor tiles. But Christopher Steel was a good choice of husband for a female founder - he was, well, kind of easy to woo, he's got good traits to be the cook for the first few batches of Ambrosia we'll need, and he brought enough cash to the wedding that we could move the bathroom indoors. :) He's learned painting pretty quickly, too; after two weeks, give or take, my founder sat for her first portrait (which turned out to be more of a silhouette, thanks to a badly placed light near where she was standing, so she posed a second time, and I think we'll have time for one more crack at it if that one's also unclear), and a couple days later the happy couple became the parents of a baby girl.

The biggest challenge I'm anticipating is the real estate purchase requirement for my first generation (I did luck into a money tree seed, at least; here's to hoping the tree drops more...) - although making six best friends might also be tough, given that out of five coworkers, three just aged up to Elder pretty much simultaneously, so they're probably a good 20+ days older than my Sim. At least her boss got turned into a vampire, and is therefore likely to be around for the foreseeable future...

Hey, cathyknits, welcome to the forum and good luck in the big Immortal Dynasty Challenge. It's lots of fun and we're all here to throw some encouraging words your way. One tip on the BF requirement — try not to make too many BF that are the same age, but rather shoot for friends one bracket below your immortal-to-be.

Welcome to the forum cathyknits.

I just thought I'd say, about the money tree seeds, that each money tree only drops on seed. This usually happens when the money tree has been perfect quality for a few days.
So if you want lots of money trees, you could go searching for 'special seeds' which I often find around the graveyard and the science facility.

I've been so nostalgic and avoid reading stories in grief for my Stucksons. Today I reread my story(and many others) and decided to start again. Not just now, there are some building projects, and challenges, but I did figured naming theme and still thinking about strategy with this new aspects some of you brought in. I'll have to restrain from overbuilding and landscaping so my PC could handle it.. And still am thinking should I write this new story or not. This first and only encounter with multigenerational game really add up to my Simming experience, strangely I do care for them ::) Anyway, wish me luck to get this one to the end!
