That seems like a logical idea to me Metro, no need to cross out a EA made town.

Sorry for Double post but it is a different topic and a while since the other post:

@Metro - I want to keep Green Eyes as a Dynasty Gene, so am I allowed to always choose the Green Eyed child? If both had green eyes I would choose the first born. Or does it always have to be the first born?

The designated immortal has to be the first born child of parents. Even in the case of twins/triplets that means the first child that you assign a name.

Ugh, I haven't worked on the Enmei Dynasty thread in so long that now I'm not sure if I want to...I should have known this would happen.  Now I'm just playing Final Fantasy XIV (collector's edition which gets to start on the servers a week early) and doing things in Barnacle Bay...and I really want to start a dynasty there.  I did get the Enmeis to Generation 6 and I have three immortals, nearly four...ought I finish it out?  We are allowed to do dynasties in BB, right?  Has there been an official ruling on which BB lot to use?

Maybe I will just post a huge picture post in the Enmei dynasty without story (I haven't been doing much of that anyway)...just with simple captions...and try to finish that dynasty out asap.

Hrm, I've been playing EarthBound on SNES too (for the millionth time)...I'm really getting sidetracked!  At any rate, I think starting a dynasty in BB (whether or not I finish the Enmeis first) is really appealing, so I'd love to hear any new info on doing dynasties there (the lot to use...and if there's anything else...I admit I've only kind of skimmed the previous pages since I've last posted).

Sorry to ramble :)

I don't have a problem with the life fruit in Barnacle Bay.  Each town brings different advantages to the game and it's for the player to decide which one to play as part of the strategy. 

I've got Barnacle Bay downloaded and I'll determine the lot that is to be used for the Dynasty Challenge very shortly.

Got Barnacle Bay this morning (yay) and have only had a quick look so far, but as someone else noted, there are none of the new Ambitions lots placed when you start a new game. If we are going to have dynasty families started, will there be some sort of ruling to allow the placement of those lots?

The Dynasty lot for Barnacle Bay has to be 432 Tidal Terrace.  It's 59 x 59 and priced at $7,200.

Metro, would you mind coming up with items to buy and keep in family inventory to make the family funds the same as if playing in Sunset Valley?  Thanks!

Done...

  • Purchase either 15 Summerhill Ct (Sunset Valley), 345 Riverblossom Hills Dr (Riverview), 16 Puddlewick Dr (Twinbrook*), or 432 Tidal Terrace (Barnacle Bay**).
  • **With the Barnacle Bay lot, you’ll also need to purchase 1 Channel Trowler 27" Deluxe TV and 2 36" HiFi Plasmondo TVs from Landgraab Industries (Electronics > TVs). Place these 3 items in family inventory and leave them there for the duration of the Dynasty Challenge. This is for Barnacle Bay only and is necessary to make the beginning family funds equivalent to Sunset Valley and Riverview.

Don't forget to edit the Guide, Pam.

I'm wondering the same...especially about the consignment store, as I'd really like to have the luck to pick up a camera.

In BB, is it all right to home grow the life fruit for ambrosia by using one of the life fruits available on various lots to grow the plant, or do we still need to hunt down special seeds?  (I guess I'm not even sure if the having to homegrow life fruit for ambrosia is set in stone, though.)

I think I'm totally going to have to start a new dynasty later this evening.  I'm sure I'll get back to the Enmeis eventually though :)

To me, it's not. Maybe it is to Pam. We'll see. I can max gardening inside of 3-4 days and have life fruit on the vine from Special Seeds in about 2 weeks. I'm not saying this to brag. Anyone can do this. So, I don't know. Not a huge issue to me.

Maybe the simplest solution would just be the added edit that any life fruit for Ambrosia needs to be home grown.

Pam? Your thoughts?

Ok, one question.  How?  Rabid readers want to know.
What?  Grannies can't play games?

We're working on this and will have a definite answer soon.  :)

I just made the following edit:

  • The Edit Town screen is off limits with two exceptions:
  • Twinbrook players can add the Book Corral to the town library, and
  • Barnacle Bay players can use Edit Town features to place a Salon, Firehouse, Consignment Store, and Junkyard.

Maybe I did something wrong but I as only able to place 3 of the Ambition lots.  They let me pick which three and I did the consignment shop, Fire Station and Junk Yard.  I can't figure out any way to do it.  There are special little things that show where you place those lots but I only had three.

I saw the same thing Telsey.  I guess you have to convert a residential lot to commercial in order to lay the other Ambitions building(s).
