It was odd, but it did get fixed.

When they married, it gave me the popups as if he had moved in. It said it added funds and that he was a part of the household, but didn't show up on my sims panel nor did he ever stay at the house. After a day or two (sim time) I asked him to be a roommate, hoping it might trick the game into moving him in. Then I disabled the roommate feature and tried talking to him again. FINALLY, after using only the friend interaction would it allow me to ask him to move in, like Ace said.

I'm so happy right now! I've got my Founder two friends away from eating ambrosia, gen two has been born and is a teen, just four days from becoming a YA. This is the farthest I've gotten on the challenge so far on attempt number three.

@MissMagicMoon
Glad your game got fixed, good luck.

@AceFace
Thanks for the info on the bug, now we know to "disable roommate feature" to solve this problem.

I am starting a new dynasty attempt, since I lost my old games. I had to re-install on a new computer. I decided to try a different town this time, and I'm reading the edit town FAQ - I wanted to confirm where it says Anyone can add EA-created lots - can I add the lots I've purchased in the store such as the Prism jewelry studio and the greenhouse? And they would have to go on a residential lot I convert into a community lot, correct?

Thanks :)

Yes.

Yes.  Make sure the residential lot comes with the town and is empty.

In regard to placing store bought lots:
Does it work the same as placing new expansion lots? I.e, if I buy the Prism Art Studio, I can place it either the next time I load up the game or never?

My generation two heir and spouse are currently at University. I am now experiencing the graduation glitch where they do not get their diplomas/traits despite attending the ceremony. May I go back to a previous save from earlier in the same Sim day?

I have a question regarding the Alchemy opp involving the Philosopher's Stone.  I've read other places that you need the Arboretum and the Vault of Antiquity in order for the opp to trigger (as well as the required skill level, of course).  Does that mean that for a Dynasty challenge, if I want to make sure I get that opp, do I have to place the Fae Rae Gardens as well as the Library of Lore and Vault of Antiquity, or can I eventually place the Vault and the Arboretum on other properties as I can buy things?  I was playing around with another file and notice that since they are special items,  I have to place them on certain lots.  Has anyone had any experience in this?  Mind you, this is in a town other than Moonlight Falls (Dragon Valley to exact) and I'm just curious what others have done and what the challenge team says about this.

It works if you just place the Vault and Arboretum on a bought property. I was able to get that op through placing those buildings on a park in Starlight Shores, so it should work everywhere else.

Thank you! I only edited existing empty residential lots, and I was able to add most of the lots I wanted to use. The rest I'll have to do without :)

I chose Aurora Skies, which I love, but it does not have a lot of great usable lots for this part of the challenge, lots of tiny lots or huge lots. I needed medium. *shrug*

Hi! I decided to start again an Immortal Dynasty, but couldn't make it pass my founder's YA, because her husband couldn't do her portrait as a YA. I gave her the artistic trait so eventually she'll be the one making the portraits, but now I need someone to make hers. I'm doing it in Dragon Valley, and loving it by the way, but there aren't any male residents in Dragon Valley with the artistic trait, so the husband she found, because he gave her the "attractive company" moodlet and all, was Daric Ordhen, the one that looks like a garden gnome (hehe) and I thought he would be great because he has advanced fishing and gardening. In Dragon Valley the townies that are artistic are Nessie Lochlan and Siobahn Murphy, both with 3 points of the painting skill, but their other traits are not so great, not so bad.

So what do you guys think I should do? I have to start over anyways, so, should I use the same Sim and hurry her marrying Daric for him to have time to do her portrait, or do a male Sim and marry him with Nessie or Siobahn? Any of these girls are better looking than Daric, thinking about future generations... but Daric is not so bad looking, looks older but he's adult.

ĄPura vida!

Keep in mind you don't have to get married right away in order to take control over the Sim. When I restarted mine, the very first thing I did was go chat up the person I wanted to move in, and just did friendly interactions until Invite to Move In showed up. I can now worry about getting my Founder married once I have other goals met. You can have the male moved in by around 3pm, and then start him doing nothing but painting ;)

I've been able to move in a housemate by 12PM on the first day. My tip? Form a group with them. Do a couple of nice socials. Disband the group. At least in my experience, the sim will often think that they had a fantastic time with you, and you get a sweet relationship boost. But yeah, you don't need to marry who you bring in.

Also, I'm wondering how much time elapsed from game start to the spouse moving in? It's been my experience that skilling up in painting to level 7 doesn't take that long after all.

Hey thank you all! You mean I don't have to marry him at the beginning, but eventually. It took me long to get my sim marrying the guy because she was busy with her skilling and career!

At first I thought my founder's skill+career+lifetime wish would be cooking, but now I'm not so sure, as cooking is something a child can learn. I was thinking about making the founder a firefighter so she could have a place to live in at the beginning!

You don't need to be a firefighter to use their facilities. And yes, you really can take your sweet time actually marrying your intended. Some people just prefer to marry their founder as soon as possible.

That is correct. My personal preference is to take the first day or two of scouting out the intended, increasing the relationship, then striking in the dark, when the intended least expects it, and carries the sweetheart back to the field o' emptiness lovely dazzling castle. Chateau du Immortal

Ah, yes, the beautiful vista. Someone really knows how to live in an empty field.

Lol! The beautiful vista is great, but my poor Sim got a bad sunburn the first day from napping in the open! After that, she went to the elixir shop to nap! Or I can always find her a wealthy Sim to marry, in spite of his traits, for those I can change eventually... I wanted to find her s husband that would give her the "attractive something moodlet". Hmm...I just have to stop comparing Sims with real life!

In DV, Siobahn Murphy has the artistic trait and is around level 3 in painting when the game starts if you want someone with experience and the trait (she also has a pretty high ranked job). I know that the homeless townies tend to have high skills in gardening, logic, fishing, and/or cooking as well as having excellent traits.

The empty field, the sunburn etc is why I go for 'loves the outdoor' and 'loves the heat' as two of my founder's traits. :) Of course, them being the angler helps as well.

Since moving the Remington Ghosts (the ones from Aiden and Hannah Jones' house, not the one buried in the Riverview Cemetery) to my lot, they've all been out of their graves for at least one night, using everything I have laid out for the use of ghosts and paparazzi. One thing I've noticed is that none of them will use the tents, which is probably a good thing. Presently Cody and Eileen are out and about.

If you are a male, you can actually wait until you have become immortal before giving birth to your heir if you so desire. And the mother of your heir could be the child of two original townies born within your house or, if you really want to wait, the grandchild of four original townies born within your house. Although that latter one would probably do even my head in LOL

Gosh darn it, now I want to go and try that as a 'practise' for my ID coming up soon. Even though my founder's gonna be female in that one. Just want to see, y'know?

At first I made my founder a girl, but then I think there are more advantages with a man.

I could make him a witch with a cat and use alchemy as max skill, carreer and LTW, right? The only restriction with alchemy, as far as I'm concerned, is that you can't throw life changing elixirs to townies as they prolong their life.

As in moving sims in, it doesn't have to be the future spouse then...
