If you don't want an IF in the house but want them as a part of the story, then yes, separate save or incorporating them into the story without turning them real. And Bubbles is right about the rules involving IFs.

I think this got lost in my rambling and other questions, but; Can a founder be created with two pets (I.E. A dog and a cat both with the genius trait)?

That's fine too. :)

Alright, time for my question!

While I don't participate in the Tournament Challenges, I keep up to date with the rules for the sake of knowing them. Recently, Metro brought up that using MoveObjects on to get the price of an unfinished sculpture is going to be banned in the 2014 Tournament. I was just wondering if this will affect dynasty rulesets at all.

Untill now the ruleset for the challenges and the dynasties have been individual and had nothing to do with each other. So my guess is that when they change the rules for the tournaments, the dynasties wont be affected.

Correct. All existing Dynasty rulesets are already in place. Changes made for the 2014 Tournament events are a different animal.

Unless EA brings out new premium content that gives a player a significant advantage over someone who does not have it, the Dynasty rules aren't likely to change, as a no more EP's are being released. ;)

I'm back again with more glitchiness. I tried using Union Cove for my dynasty, but I was left with 2,800 or something like that instead of 1800. I couldn't get the familyfunds cheat to work. What should I do?

Next question is : have you typed the right family name? like the the caps? or is there any other family with the same name in UC?
If there is a family with the same name, it might be the other family that ended up with the 1800 money.

Another question for myself would be: If the heir is a girl, is she allowed to just get pregnant without marrying and then give birth to the heir? or is it a requirement for the spouse to move in too?

The father of the child has to live in the house. Generation seven is the only generation that can (and must) have an heir with the father outside of the household.

But they don't need to be married to the father of their child, as long as he lives in the household.

I'm pretty sure I got it right. I copy and pasted the cheat code from this post, after having done testingcheatsenabled true and typed in the family name, Reverie. I think I did everything right?

Open cheat code panel
                Testingcheatsenabled true
                 familyfunds Reverie 1800
Close cheat code panel


I know sometimes people get confused about the familyfunds [family name] part, so make sure you aren't using brackets.

Don't forget to turn testingcheatsenabled to false when you're done. ;)

Yes that happened to me too. Perhaps someone should put 'No brackets' in the first post...

Hello !  :)
My name is Florent, I'm french, and I'm new in the forum.
I like this challenge, very great and original.


I would like translate this challenge into french, publish on my website and share with the sims French-speaking community.

However I need the permission of the creator (Metropolis Man I suppose ?) (or Pinstar ?)
Of course I give credit.


Thank you so much.  :)

I'm in a little bit of a pickle. When my graphics card gets an update--which it does every couple of months or so--it resets my game settings, including the Sims 3 story progression population options. I just got an update, but can't remember all my settings. I know I disabled fairies and pets, but can't remember whether I left horses on/off. It's vaguely important, as my next generation was going to supermax riding, although by no means a necessity seeing as how their are still plenty of supermax options available. I honestly can't remember whether horse progression was on or off at the start of the dynasty. I've planned all along to use riding as a supermax and put the equestrian center in the game at the start, which makes me think I probably had it on, but now I can't remember seeing any horses roaming around town. Any thoughts?

Just as a note, wild horses, which are usually the ones you see roaming around town, spawn independently of whether you enabled horses or not. I don't know if they spawn in Bridgeport, though, which might be a problem for a riding supermax no matter what, considering that one of the challenges is to adopt wild horses.

I figured that was controlled by the horse option in the population section. Good to know its not! I don't think I've seen them in Bridgeport, though. I think I'll just go with a different supermax option then, and leave horses on because I think that was the original setting.

Bridgeport's special classification as a city means that wild horses definitely won't spawn there, according to SimGuruGraham. Sorry that you have to change plans, and have an unused equestrian center too!

Anyone attempting a dynasty in Bridgeport and wondering what supermaxes to choose should avoid Riding, in that case, since it renders one of the challenges impossible.

I'm pretty sure Unicorns do spawn there, however. So, if unicorns count for the challenge, it might be hypothetically possible to complete it. If you're a glutton for punishment and looking for bragging rights, I mean.
