Thanks so much, Ratchie, I think this has fixed it.  I also took out all the CC.  Will that be a problem?

Silly question, perhaps, as I've never had this happen to me, but it might at some stage.

With regards to the camera that the founder gets if you have both WA and UL installed, if you elect to keep it and never sell it (as I usually do) and then put it on the ground somewhere in your house, if a burglar should come in and steal it (can burglars even steal items like that placed on the ground?), does that result in a failure?

I wouldn't think so, since the point of the 'never sell it' rule is to prevent free money.

I wouldn't believe so, as it's not like you directed the burglar to steal it. To my eyes, it's no different than the burglar stealing your car, or an outdoor light, or a toilet.

I'm with Shirin and Zyffyr. You don't profit from the burglar stealing it, so you should be fine.

Thanks for your answers, I was just hopeful it wasn't going to be similar to a burglar stealing your portraits from the museum and failing the dynasty in that way.

By the way, at one stage with Into The Future installed, I discovered that it was possible to sell the time portal thing, and it seemed to have a similar sale value (or more) to the camera. Does a restriction on the time portal need to be made for a similar reason?

(I tried it out with a non-Immortal Dynasty file, not an official Immortal Dynasty).

Yes, the restriction applies to time portal too (treat it like the camera).  Either you sell it and adjust your funds with the cheat, or never sell it.  This is to prevent free money.

January 16th, 2014 -- Rules Addition:

All Immortal Dynasty players need to begin their game with $1800.  If you have WA and UL installed, you will receive a camera in your inventory.  If you have ITF installed, you will receive a time portal in your lot.  Players must choose to either sell the camera and time portal or keep it forever (never ever sell).  If you sell it, do it before the next step.  If you have more than $1800 after purchasing your lot or selling a camera , then temporarily use the family funds cheat to bring starting funds down to $1800.

What about the University Welcome Kit? (Is that what it's called?) I think it arrives whenever a sim ages up to teen too.

At the start of the dynasty, yes treat it like camera / portal.  In the middle of the dynasty when you receive it for sims aging up to teen, you can do whatever you want with it.

I always figured that because it was only 20 simeloens, that selling it/keeping it wouldn't matter. I have always sold it from the get go, including in my current Oid Immortal Dynasty (started before this ruling).

Do I need to restart the Oids as Oids 3.0, or can I continue on?

Continue.  The 20 simoleons is no big deal, I was just lumping it up together with camera/portal for rules completeness sake.

Hi gang, it's me again.  I'm still having the same problem in the game...may I try Twallen's debug enabler to see if that cleans up the problem with the saves?

Have you checked out these pages MsFlynn found? They couldn't save my game, but maybe yours?

Just as a heads-up, twallan's Mods don't look like they've been updated to work with 1.66 yet. (see edit below) Without twallan himself to code them, a bunch of coders are trying to work with his code and update them. crinrict is getting a bunch of bug reports though. :P

Edit: I stand corrected. I didn't check one page, almost all of them work (bar about four).

For the first time ever in game, I have had a male sim (Aiden Jones) who was kidnapped by aliens be impregnated by said aliens. I know I have to return the baby to its home planet, but I don't know how/when to do that, is it at the point of birth?

Yes, it's at the point of birth. Also, if you have a full house, the game will send the alienboo back by default.

Hello again, Challenge Team!

After a week of trying to fix my save, I think I've managed it, but also think I've wrecked any chance for HOF.  Here's what I've done.

First, tried going back before the save error started.  No luck there, it just showed up again.
Then, tried removing the hair and eyes cc I had for Jareth, created a new factory reset, put last working save in there, and lo and behold, that didn't work either.
Then, I tried to evict and move them back into the house.  That made it worse.
So I took a copy of the last working save again, (I'm so tired of that file, you can't believe it), and ran it through Error Trap.  It cleared over 1000 errors, but the family and UI were still missing.  So when it was finished with that, I did the edit town trick again, which worked, and now had a clean working save.
Then I copied the save into yet another brand new factory reset file with no mods.  It seems to be working just fine.

I'm assuming that use of Error Trap has precluded entry into the HOF for this dynasty.  So I'm just going to keep on going with the story.

Thanks,
Tia

I have a question about lots that are allowed to have their designation changed. Ricalynn's post stops with Dragon Valley and Isla Paradiso. Was such ruling made for Midnight Hollow and Roaring Heights?
