Yes, in one play I found it on the first day and another time it was day 2/3.

Another question about genie from me... Are the non-immortal/heir have a child with the genie?
and if the child is human, is he/she allowed to be the next dynasty spouse?

I really like to have a genie colour blend in LOL

If you're wanting to get the blue skin tone in your dynasty, there's a shot a cured genie can do it. I cured a genie (which took away her blue skin), then invited her into the household and got her pregnant without doing a makeover in the mirror on her until after the baby was born. For whatever reason, the game still 'thought' she was blue and her kid got the blue skin. I don't know if it was a glitch, or if this is something that can be re-created. Just thought I'd mention it!

The rules say you can have a playable ghost as part of your household - but how do you get rid of them to make room for an heir? Do ghosts "die" again? I've never played a ghost.

I have two playable ghosts as my household member. They're just like normal Sims; I have seen that they grow up too. From YA to Adult and becoming an Elder and I believe that he will die too. As my ghost child actually grow up from baby to an adult now and he's married with my heiress ::)

One of them will reach his own limit soon due to old age. But, I haven't got my chance to play Sims again. I might tell you what happen if you're still curious and need proof to satisfy your curiosity :P

And I believe the Challenge team already thinking throughout about this, if not maybe they will be forbid Ghost like other supernatural state :P

@Playable ghosts "dying:" Playable ghosts do "die" when they reach their time, but the camera won't pan to them and they quietly disappear into the aether instead of having Grim come for them. I've never seen it happen since I didn't let my last family of playable ghosts grow old, but that's what I got from Hazelnut's life states dynasty and others.

And to drive Ratchie's point home, do not send them to the netherworld.

Huh. I'm confused now, so I hope someone can explain. I thought genies could never be part of the household, due to the extended lifespans. I assume, then, from previous comments, that they're treated like simbots - ok on a temporary basis when freed, but must be immediately booted out of the household?

Genies are also curable with a potent cure elixir in the same way that other occults are, and you don't need to add them to the house to cure them. Once cured, they're human and legal to add to the household.

If you're wanting to get the blue skin tone in your dynasty, there's a shot a cured genie can do it. I cured a genie (which took away her blue skin), then invited her into the household and got her pregnant without doing a makeover in the mirror on her until after the baby was born. For whatever reason, the game still 'thought' she was blue and her kid got the blue skin. I don't know if it was a glitch, or if this is something that can be re-created. Just thought I'd mention it!

For some reason I missed the little detail in your dynasty about Shawnya not going to the dresser until she had a baby. Anyways, I think that's entirely why Darcy turned out blue. I know that when you turn a sim into a genie using an elixir, they're given blue skin and generic features that are permanently locked in when you use the mirror or dresser. Perhaps that is what's needed to make a cured genie permanently not blue too.

Just asking out of wonder though :

If my heir is a guy, and then he got a woman preggers out of wedlock out of household, is the dynasty failed or still allowed to be continued?

If it still allowed to be continued, when the woman move in to the household with the child, is the first child out of household be the heir, or the second child but born in the household be the heir?

thx in advance. :)

Male heirs can have children outside of the household after the next heir is born. If they have a child outside of the household before they have an heir, it's game over.

Thx Trip. Just need to make sure before I make a plan on any twist in the game  ;D

Thank you all for explaining how to handle a playable ghost :) I'm not sure if I'm going to use him, I just wanted to find out.

One more thing I want to ask :

Is the heir allowed to have the next generation without married? just as long as they live in the same home?

Yes, that's fine. It's the heir who cannot have a kid with someone else.

Since plumbots are allowed to be created for the bot building career, are they allowed to be tuned up before being sold? I did this in old old dynasty and didn't get told off for it so I assumed it's OK.

What is the protocol for dealing with the "random foreign child" bug? It affected my teenage heiress, and I didn't notice it until she took another trip to France and ran into a kid with the family name, who turned out to be her son.

I'm certain that I'm not the first one who has had an heir end up with a foreign child out of nothing, but this thread is unwieldy to search.

When it happened to me Rica let me go back to the pre travel save, gen 5 had just married and I sent them on honeymoon to Egypt only when they arrived her surname had changed to Hosni and she had a teenage daughter in town with her purple hair.

She had been to Egypt with her parents before that and that trip was fine, it was the return trip that spawned this teenage kid out of nowhere so chances are your random child just appeared during this visit and is not from the previous one. One thing that did happen is some Egyptians they met died between visits and I think the game had to spawn new sims when she went back and that's where the mix up occured.

The team has to discuss this, will get back to you with an answer soon.

ok, a couple questions about elders:  i've never actually played a sim to elder before(usually play a sim till its kid is out of school then move the kid out and play that sim.  also, its my wifes game and until now haven't been that interested in it) and was wondering if elders can have jobs.  if they can have jobs is it ok to give elders the same job as long as they each have a unique career?

Elders can have jobs, yes. You can give all your immortals a new job once they reach the top of their unique one. I just prefer for mine to keep their old one. :P

When it happened to me Rica let me go back to the pre travel save, gen 5 had just married and I sent them on honeymoon to Egypt only when they arrived her surname had changed to Hosni and she had a teenage daughter in town with her purple hair.

I see. I do have a save from before that trip, and I think I'd lose a week of progress at most (which isn't bad). If this was any other sim who got affected, I'd just shrug it off and be cool with the idea of extended family abroad. Travel has been especially buggy for me in this particular file, but there's a part of me that can't resist returning.

Team has decided that plumbot needs to be sold right after you create them.  Plumbots may be made but cannot stay in the household after they are made.

You have permission to go back to a pre-travel save.
