NancyJ, your sims don't have to get married, in fact generation 7 can't get married, because otherwise they woudn't be able to get pregnant :/

Just to make sure -- getting the Food Replicator counts as one of the unique Lifetime Rewards, right?

Also, is using Mid-Life Crisis on a spouse is fine?

I'm pretty sure the answer to both questions is "yes."  I just wanted to make sure before I keep going, though!  Generation 2 has just been born and Perry is getting pretty close to Supermaxing Cooking.

Oh, one other thing - we're not allowed makeovers but can we use the dresser/mirror in cases of tragically unfashionable offspring? Also can non-immortals get makovers? I'm hoping at the very least non-immortals can use the dresser because my first gen married Ethan Bunch and he's wearing sandals!

You can use the dressers, just not the makeover station.

Makeovers are banned for the entire household, not just immortals. And curlybennett correctly answered your spouse question.

Yep. That’s a good choice too, since you only need one. No Bills Forever is another good choice, especially for the Founder. Collection Helper also excellent choice for the Founder.

Also, is using Mid-Life Crisis on a spouse is fine?

It’s only banned for immortals.

Does each generation need a spouse or is being impregnated enough and does the spouse count as a best friend (assuming you were best friends before you got married)


I asked this question way back and Metro's answer was that they had to be married (except for Gen 7) and that it had to do with family values being promoted or something like that.

Thank you!

Then I must throw out this information, because I don't think I've seen it mentioned: if you're playing in Twinbrook, Sofia Carlton as your founder's spouse makes life much easier.  She's a Snob, so compliments work well on her and she can be married by dinnertime (or at least that was the case with my Schmoozer founder).  She moves in with about 20,000 Simeleons and has an expensive car in her inventory.  Sell that and you've completed her LTW.  Then, use the Mid-life Crisis and you can mold her as you see fit.  She's about halfway through young adulthood, if I remember correctly.

Finally found the earlier posts about whether or not the parents need to be married.  It was in the other thread, over in the section for announcements and stuff.  Here is my question and Metro's response:
 My Question:
Quote from: Schipperke on August 22, 2010, 06:18:03 PM
"•All offspring must result from natural pregnancies of Sims living in the Dynasty house."

Does this mean that both parents must be living in the Dynasty house (other than the last generation, of course)?  What if one of my female immortals has a pregnancy with someone not living in the house?  Is that ok?

Metro's Response:
That's okay for the last generation, but aside from that, we're stressing cohesive family structure here—two parents living under one roof.

Heh. It's getting to the point where I can't even remember my own clarifications. I'll edit the rule set.

EDIT: Okay, I just added the following to the "Adding to the Household" section:

  • Your first 6 immortals can be male or female and their spouses must live in the Dynasty house until their death.

Metro, did you see my friends question?

I have a friends question:  When my founder ate ambrosia, he was best friends with six different sims, as per the rules.  Since then, two of his best friends have died and one is about to (you know, the "so and so won't live forever...").    Does my sim need to get another set of best friends in order to eat ambrosia again?  Or is he "set for life"?

Sorry, that came up before so I think I accidentally glanced over that. The answer: there is no friendship requirement after an immortal eats Ambrosia for the first time.

Um I wasn't in time to get a picture and sculpture of my founder as an adult, does that mean I have to start over?

And what counts towards the museum? I mean like only ONE sculpture, picture and portrait or as many as possible? And can you only count one camera picture or can there be a sepia, black and white, normal...etc? Can you let them appreciate for a reallly long time and then add them? Or is that cheating?

No. Ice sculptures and photos are optional. If you had missed the painting you would have been done.

And what counts towards the museum? I mean like only ONE sculpture, picture and portrait or as many as possible?
One of each for each of the life stages listed in the rule set.

And can you only count one camera picture or can there be a sepia, black and white, normal...etc?
One picture per life stage. The filter type is your choice.

Can you let them appreciate for a reallly long time and then add them? Or is that cheating?
Wouldn't objects appreciate whether they were on your lot or if your museum was set up on a different lot? Objects that are made for a given life stage should obviously be placed in that life stage, or shortly after in the instance where an object was being made as an immortal was aging up.

You're only option is for another Sim to do "Paint a Portrait of..."

By spouses, do you mean anyone who is a parent of the heir?  Even if they're not married?  I don't remember talking about that when we did the rules.  Did we decide that they have to live together regardless?

Also, please send me a list of all the changes to the rules so I can update the guide.  Thanks!

Thanks for answering my question back there, Pam. :)

And yay more question time :p I know photographs are optional for the museum, but since I'm able to take them, I'm going to try to for all my Immortals, but I had a question about toddler portraits.  There isn't a "Ask to Pose" option for toddlers, right?  (If there is, please direct me to it.)  Is it okay then to take the photo of the toddler while the toddler is held?  I know it's of course possible to take a picture of a toddler while he/she is playing on the floor, but it's hard to get a good angle that way.  Does the photo of a toddler Immortal only count if the toddler is alone?  (For all other life stages I would of course take the photo solo, since I can ask the Sim to pose.)

Thanks!  Oh, and I updated The Enmei Dynasty if anyone is interested.  I'm having fun reading everyone's dynasties (though I really need to go make more comments!).

To be honest, I've never taken a photo of a Toddler, so if anyone else knows how to handle Toddler photographs, please jump in.
