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.

That would not be allowed.

Actually, you're not allowed to eat life fruit until after you've had ambrosia.  Part of the challenge is to keep the first 7 immortals going with ambrosia.  That's why you have to have some every 20 days.

Then I guess the answer is obvious, Castaras, you can't have all 8 immortals eat ambrosia for the first time together.

Although it would be wicked cool!

Appaloosa Plains worked for my dynasty on the laptop.  Not much lag, but it has a lot of combined rabbithole careers, so you need to be judicious with the ops.

My dynasty is in Twinbrook, and at week 33, it still runs decently well on my laptop and loads in 10-15 minutes. My file is currently massive, though, at a hefty 919 MB. I honestly don't know how it still manages to run well. And I blame my file size on my own bad habits of building big and traveling often, rather than anything related to Twinbrook itself.

I've heard great things about Lucky Palms' performance, too.

The reason it is not allowed is because it wouldn't work.

When are the heirs conceived,obviously not in the future because heirs have to the product of two Sims living in the dynasty house trying for a baby. So a spouse would have to be living in the dynasty house in the current time. If the household is frozen in time the founders spouse and any other spouses  cannot age and die after several generations you would run out of house room because nobody would be aging.

Don't sims age in the future? I don't have the expansion downloaded yet, but from the previous conversationand questions, it seems like they age.

Yes they do age..but I don't see what that has to do with anything  ??? Why would you want your founder of heirs to age whilst the rest of the household don't. It might just be me but I spent a lot of time playing a dynasty wanting the spouses and spares to hurry up and die so that I had more room in the dynasty house and could bring in another spouse and another heir.

Well, it seems like it would be possible then. If you have, say, Gen 4 in the future with their spouse, and then Gen 5 is born while everyone else is in the 'present', adn you simply send each gen to the present when they hit their elder birthday-it seems possible. Am I missing something?

How would you progress in your career? Who will do your museum pieces? There are other questions too, I'm sure. Let's leave it at: it's not allowed.

What happens to all the spouses living in the dynasty house? 

Thanks for jumping in Nettlejuice.

Apparently, I have a glitch in the family funds. In the lats two sim-days it was increased three times, first in the amount of 9,800 then 3,700 and finally by 105,000. :o
Searching the forum I discovered that sometimes the amount matches the price of one of the cars available in the game. That's exactly what happened to me.
I have not used it,  because it is not money that my dynasty family won legitimately.
My question is if I can use "familyfunds" cheat to subtract those simoleons. I know I can buy those cars and just keep them unused in the family inventory, but I feel safer using the cheat.

We usually just allow people to keep the money. It is a glitch and therefore not your fault so sit back and enjoy a glitch that actually helps.

Thanks for being honest.

Are you allowed to move other townies besides a spouse, like Agnes Crumplebottom, into your founder's house?

Are heirs allowed to be ghosts? I.e, if gen four marries a ghost and the firstborn is a ghost, is that acceptable?

Perfectly fine. Ghosts age like regular humans. They just won't be ghosts forever, because ambrosia undoes that.

I have a question about expansion packs:

My friend who plays sims is letting me borrow her computer. I want to start an immortal dynasty but she has Ambitions and I don't, so when I get a new computer it will sadly be lost.

A. Will the move to another computer work? To prevent story progression from destroying the file I'm making a move to another town right before the move so that the brownies don't wear ambitions clothing.

B. Is this allowed since you can't turn off expansions?

I've run into a snag.  When I open my current save, all my sims have disappeared from the side panel and my funds are at zero.  I've cleared caches and restarted with no luck.  May I try a previous save?

The previous save isn't saving, I'm trying a factory reset with an earlier one, will that be permissible?
