Thank you, Rachel.
I was thinking along the same lines, but wanted to be sure.
And thanks for the welcome.

Has it ever been completed with just the base game?  I've got another story idea... :D

@Tia: The base game skills are Logic, Painting, Writing, Guitar, Cooking, Handiness, Gardening, Fishing, Athletics and  Charisma, Which is 10, and there 10 base game careers.......so it should be possible. There's also enough LTR to go around, but I think you might have trouble with opps.

This dynasty was specifically written to be base-game compatible.

The ops should still be okay, I'm playing my Goblin Kings without Into the Future and not having any problems with them.

But has it ever been completed with only the base game, Trip?

Not a problem until now.
And if a sim don't get enough with their career and skill, I let them touch other careers or skills, just without maxing them.

I'm on gen 6 with my base game only! I haven't had the time recently to finish up, but it's definitely doable. Makes you miss all the fun shortcuts from the EPs though.

Some questions regarding opportunities for black ops, particularly in light of the fact that Into the Future seems to have eliminated skill opportunities altogether. I have used the following page: http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Sims_3_Opportunities#Business_Career for most of these questions

1 Can the opportunity you get offered from Emit Rellevart count towards Black Ops?
2 With Primary School/Secondary School Ops, Primary School has one called "Research Project", while Secondary School has one called "The Research Project". Do these count as two separate opportunities?
3 I presume that 'The Honor Roll' from both the Primary School and Secondary School opportunity lists can only count once. Is that correct?
4 Does Teaching, Fortune Teller, Pets Expansion Pack, Into the Future Expansion Pack or University Expansion Pack Careers offer any opportunities that qualify for black ops?
5 Do any of the Professions provide Opportunities that count?

Thanks.

1. I'm pretty sure it does.
2. As long as one word is different, it's fine, right?
3. According to the rule above, yes.
4. I haven't really explored those, sorry.
5. Private Investigator gives loads and Singer/Acrobat/Musician each give one when you get to level 2.

Short question while we are on the topic of BlackOps.

Can the opportunity you get when entering the equestrian training grounds in town (e.g. to perform x number of jumps), count as a BlackOps? Or are town events excluded from the list?

Special opportunities (Town Events) do count.

Not sure about any of the others, but I do know that the Art appraiser career gives at least 3 once you get to level 4 and can pick up side jobs (or whatever they are called), once accepted those ops are added to the regular business opportunity slot.
I admit I only found 3 during the small search I did, there might be one more, but there are definitely 3 different ones.

The Education career gives plenty of ops, and Fortune Telling has its fair share of ops too.

Can you send heirs to boarding school?
Continuing with the BlackOps theme, can 'Enroll In University' count as a BlackOps if only 1 heir goes to university?

You can send them to boarding school, but remember to get their museum pieces done first!

You don't have the accept the Enroll in University op to attend university. As long as only one heir accepts the op before enrolling in university and completes it as a part of their unique ops, you can still send anyone you want to university.

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.

Wonderful, thanks very much!

Question in relation to this - does it have to be the first immortal eating ambrosia before the second immortal eats ambrosia? Or could you have (potentially) all 8 immortals eating ambrosia at once for their first times?

Also, a question for people in general: My laptop has difficulty in running large savegames, especially in specific towns (Bridgeport, Hidden Springs are the ones that come to mind). What towns, both storebought and EP-wise, have people found run the smoothest?

How are you planning to keep the other immortals alive until then?

You can age somebody in the future, while the people in the present are frozen in time. Once that person is aged, send 'em back to the present. Then send back through only the next heir, and rinse and repeat.

Then you'd have 8 elders that all are the same age.

Thank you all for your help re ops. I should have sent Pug ConDoin to do Fortune Telling as his career instead of Business (after he maxed self employed alchemist), I can see. I'll be sure to send my alchemy supermax sim from the Oids to do Fortune Telling rather than Business for the ops.

I don't know how else you can lower the age bar for the immortals unless you eat one life fruit a day/every few days but that's a waste of life fruit. Ambrosia is the best way, you can't get a tattoo or a makeover before eating ambrosia so that's ruled out.

I don't think eating life fruit is allowed.
