@Metro

Aren't building cheats such as 'MoveObjects on' allowed in the dynasty?

Yes, if you're doing recon work for Katluvr I already discussed this with her via PM.

Well, shoot!  I would have made use of the Castle Kit for my dynasty then.  I was really bummed because it requires the moveObjects cheat to use properly, and I assumed that even this cheat was off limits.

Oh well.  At least I can put fireplaces in without messing up the look of my house!

Urgh. I'm almost ready for my Founder to eat ambrosia - but before I go any further I wanted to check something. I found a Deathflower in her inventory and I honestly have no idea how it got there because I didn't have any in my garden and she hasn't been anywhere near the cemetery - all I can think of is that it's from a Science career "chance card" event about my Sim being allowed to take leftover materials from her experiments home. I sold it as soon as I noticed it, but it had possibly been there for several days, during which nothing at all happened that would have killed her. Do I need to restart?

(also, while I'm thinking about it: in the event that I don't need to restart, is it permissible for male non-immortal offspring to father children outside the household?)

No. Thanks for telling me and being honest. No harm done.

I have a question about the travel bug revolving unmarried sims.  I'm putting it here, because if my assumption is correct, this could be a reoccurring problem in my dynasty.

Does anyone know if formerly married sims with deceased spouses are subject to this glitch?

I don't know if there's a clear cut answer as to what exactly causes the traveling bug. From what I've heard, married spouses that travel seem to be less susceptible. Does that mean that your Sim is more susceptible now since their spouse has passed? Who knows? Avoiding contact with locals also seems to help.

While that wasn't the answer I was looking for, it was the answer I expected.  Thanks for responding anyways.

Once you get into the HOF, if you play again, does your score get replaced if it's higher?
Or do both attempts get listed?
Or is the second attempt just left out?

I'm not really doing this for the score, more the experience and different take on things. However, I am curious.

You can replace your original entry with the higher score, if you wish.

If I get into the hall of fame with the Khalids then I want both my scores in there. The first time round I just did portraits and I did not really focus on the value of the museum it was just about completing the challenge. This time it is all about the museum.

You'll have to take it up with Metro.  I thought he said only one Hall of Fame entry per person, but I could be wrong.

Oh I did not know that. Hopefully when Metro sees this he can enlighten me on how many HOF entries are allowed.

Well, there will definitely be another Dynasty Challenge later this year, so I doubt i said one and that's it. Maybe I said one for each specific Dynasty Challenge.

At any rate, ratchie, here's a little bit of your own entry:

rachie
 
Immortal Dynasty Challenge
Total value of Immortal Dynasty Museum — $147,778
Finished — Week 54, Day 3

---------------

So, what I could do is something like this...

rachie
 
Immortal Dynasty Challenge
Total value of Immortal Dynasty Museum — $147,778 ($X was achieved in a 2nd attempt)
Finished — Week 54, Day 3

The thing is — everyone's entry is geared towards that one file/family, so simply attaining a higher museum value in another attempt is fine if you want to do that, but it can't be spotlighted — just mentioned as an aside like above. Make sense?

If I complete the dynasty challenge again I would want the Khalids to have their moment in the spotlight so the Smiths would have to be removed. I would like to have it mentioned that it was the second time I had completed a dynasty.
After all the Smiths are still on the completed dynasties board so they won't be forgotten.

Of course I still have to complete my current dynasty.

I'll think of something, Rachel, don't worry. Yeah, maybe your first entry could simply be removed. I'm guessing 95% of Dynasty players are not going to be willing to do this challenge twice, so nearly all entries will be a look at one attempt. So, it would be kind of odd if your entry was twice as long as others. Not a huge deal, just looking at the consistency of the Hall of Fame.

Maybe my Smith hall of fame entry could be put at the bottom of my Smith dynasty story leaving room for my new improved higher scoring dynasty.

I give it a try in Tweenbrook, cause I haven't really played there, and hit a jackpot. Sofia Carlton turn to be almost perfect, only thing is she don't have any skill points except in charisma. She bring in around 20.000 and a 85.000 car in inventory, and since her LTW is Living in a lap of luxury, it was fulfilled as soon as I sold a car. So she got midlife crisis and has left plenty of LTP before changing hairstyle (she even turn pretty after changing makeup and hairstyle), and family has more than 100.000 on a first day. I left them there, cause I'm tempted to move in some artistic slaves to ease the gameplay, but on the other hand, I feel like it is like a cheating even inside the rules..

@Metro:

Is there any real reason why a person can't have an entry in the HoF for each Immortal Dynasty family that is completed?  I don't know if I'll do a second one, but if I did, I probably wouldn't want to have to choose between my families.  And if someone completes the challenge twice, that seems like it's an accomplishment worth two entries.  But then, if the entries are per player, then I see why it can be only one entry per player and not per Dynasty family.
