That is the correct lot size for Bridgeport's dynasty lot. And yes, it is tiny. Even smaller than Twinbrook's dynasty lot!

Well, at least I'm not into building. I'll probably have my sims sleeping outside.  ;D Thanks, Trip!

If you have IP, just buy them a tent from buy mode.

Oh, I was just thinking about putting their beds outside. I don't have seasons so I'm not worried about the weather or anything like that.

Island Paradise? Lets you buy tents? I never knew that. I thought the tents were part of WA and you could only get them on vacation.

I used sleeping bags at first.

Yeah, IP comes with a tent - if memory serves, it's under Outdoors > Activities, pretty close to the windboards.

Its size is the same as the smallest of the WA tents that you can buy on vacation, and the IP design is blue on the default and icon.

Works wonders if you can swing a tent, a fridge, and a shower/potty combo.

I know it's early, but any word on if it's ok to use the tractor in the Grandpa's Grove set?  I would think we can since it doesn't age you up or down, but wanted to make sure first.

So...I've run into a small problem. Well, a large one.
My generation 3 Heir was born invisible. Reloading the game does not help. She cannot be selected to be interacted with, and thus cannot be deliberately tended for or anything. I don't even know if she can be autonomously cared for. I've tried reloading the game, but no dice. She's even invisible in the save select portrait.
So, assuming clearing my caches tomorrow does not work, can I go to a previous save and try for a non-invisible baby?

Yes it looks fine to use, unless you find some kind of aging bug while using the tractor, let's hope not.  ;D

Yes, that's fine. Good luck.

I have also had this problem before, or something like it. You might have some bad cc causing it. That's what was my problem. If not then I can't help.

I don't have any custom content. I have store stuff, but that's about it. Nothing that'd show up with a baby.

Speaking of which -- I asked this on the ambitions board, but the only people who could answer it are probably reading this board, and may not think to look... Let's say you have an heir who has an imaginary friend. You don't make the IF real, but it is "living." This heir becomes immortal. Will the not-real IF live forever?

Since they're permanently tied to your heir's life if you don't make them real, yes.

Are we allowed to change the spouse name just to match the themes we are using?
What I meant is when we move the spouse in, and then we go to town hall to change the name...

I see no problem in doing that.

I have a bug with my immortal dynasty family, I've gotten to the second generation being YA, so I wanted to do some travel. But when I try to return, the game freezes on the loading screen. I've left it running for hours and it still won't finish, it's stuck at about 96% or so. I tried returning by using the phone, or waiting until it makes you return. I already did a factory reset, removed all my premium content, and it still happens, regardless of which Sim(s) I try to take on vacation. I tried recovering a backup and still the problem occurs. I made a new file and that Sim can successfully return from vacation.

Any ideas what I should do?

I am currently trying this challenge in Isla Paradiso. There are some questions that I would like to ask, does anyone know the answer tell me please :

1. In Isla Paradiso there is a resort that could be bought for free. Are we allowed to buy it? Will it count into lot that we own?
2. Are we allowed to re-colour a housemate?

Thank you  :)

You can own a resort but it doesn't qualify as a business or property.

By re-colour, do you you mean change the hair colour? I am pretty sure you can, as long as you do it at the mirror and not the styling station.

I was puzzling over that too, but my guess is mermaids and scale color, since Sherry mentioned Isla Paradiso.

That, too, is allowed, changing the scale color, so long as it does not extend their lives or unnecessarily shorten it.

Pardon me, I forgot to mention it clearly... the re-colour I mean is the skin colour.

The only way you could do that is with mods or cheats, and neither are allowed in this.
