I think the mechanism for going to the future is similar to traveling in World Adventures, so I can imagine that the same bugs can come up. I know that University travel shares bugs with WA travel. :(

Thank you for letting me know, Trip. That was so sad :(

Yup, I did ask the boss (Metro) about this, and his answer to me is:  I have no issue with fast aging a spare via Oasis Landing. 

You want to cause age discrepancy in your dynasty?  :o  Would that make better stories?

So to confirm: Spare definitely, can a potential immortal be "fast aged"?

Hmm, I suppose a potential immortal can be "fast aged" via Oasis Landing.  Not 100% sure, let me triple check with the team and the boss when he gets back from vacation, ok?  Ill keep you posted.

It's a bit nitpicky on my part, but I don't think "fast aged" is really the right term to be using. The sim (heir or spare) isn't being aged up fast, like caking up early or Instant Age elixirs. They are still needing to live the full span of their lives for the full length of each age bracket. I mean, no one is calling WA vacations or University terms "life extensions" even though it grants extra time to work on skills.

But, that's just me at 2am-ish on a Monday morning. ;D

Issue is that it's not like university and WA trips - you still age normally in the future.

Nutella: Thanks, will hold off on doing future stuff with heirs for now then.  :)

If you buy the Duke Of Bows Ren Fair from the sims 3 store, you also get a violin and the new violin skill. Can that count as a supermax?

Are there skill challenges for the violin?  I may be mistaken, but it seems to me there are no skill challenges for the violin, and if that's the case, it wouldn't be possible to supermax it (since supermax means to maximize the skill and complete all skill challenges).

The Violin skill doesn't count, because it doesn't have any skill challenges attached. This was officially ruled some time ago.

And while Schip beat me to the punch, I did find the official ruling:

The Violin Skill is not eligible as a possible Supermax due to it's lack of challenges.

Okay so a female sim can get pregnant up to the day before their elder birthday, then her birthday is postponed until the baby is born.

Would that count as life extension and therefore is banned?

If so how late in adulthood can a female sim get pregnant without delaying their elder birthday?

I asked about it before, and it isn't banned.

Females can get pregnant on the day before their elder birthday, but not the day of it.

I have a quick question my kids and I share the Sims game at home on the same computer .

I'm beginning a dynasty but my kids like to use the cheats and change the options. Is there a way for me to keep the options for my game always the same? I don't want to have to keep changing the options each time I go to play my dynasty.

There are several ways. The safest way is to do a Factory Reset, which will create for you a folder to play your Dynasty. As long as you rename the folder before you play, you essentially have one folder for the kids to play and one for you. The kids folder, they can do anything -- Mods, cheats, options, whatever. None of it will affect your game.

Edited: Thanks for your help Seabody. I searched the forum posts and found how to do the factory reset.
Edited: I figured it out! Thanks again.

I have  a question about plumbots. Can they not be created at all or can you create them and then kick them out like SimBots?

Into The Future Updates:

- Traveling is banned until the 2nd generation becomes Young Adult. Travel includes going to University to get a degree or Time Travel (Into the Future).
- The Quantum Power Chamber (Hibernation Chamber) is banned.
- Plumbots are banned.

I'd take this as they can't be created at all and since they become household members, I doubt you'd be allowed to create them and kick them out. A team member might want to correct this but that is what Nutella implied.

Does that mean the bot making skill is off limits?

Also, do street art commissions count as opps?

I think there's a way to supermax Bot Building without building plumbbots, though it's trickier.

Street art commissions count, but the op is always titled "Commissioned Street Art," so it can count only once.

Thanks! I may just have to change my plans... it will be hard to use it as a SuperMax. I'll look into how to do it without making a plumbot.

It looks possible, but tricky. The skill challenges don't require you to build plumbots and you could essentially max the career without touching create a bot. You might want to test this in a different file first.

So to confirm: Spare definitely, can a potential immortal be "fast aged"?

Castaras:
Got confirmation from Metro, the answer is "yes".  You can send a potential immortal to Oasis Landing to be "fast aged" if you want to, just make sure to adhere to the traveling rule for this dynasty -- no traveling till 2nd generation is YA.

In my file, I've got a few new problems. My third generation is meant to age up on Friday (Current in game day) and she even got the birthday message, but her info says she still has one day to go. Also, she is now romantic interests with her husband and I've done nothing to make it like that. No deaths, no mean interactions, nothing like that. Can I go back to a previous save (Actually from earlier that day, when everything was normal and see if that file what it should be?

Did they do the "Kiss and Make Up" interaction? I've had that set spouses back to romantic interest level.

Yes... I didn't know about that. I only found it today and gave it a shot. Is it possible to get them back together somehow?
