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...

You can't make the cat in CAS, you would have to adopt one.

Also, Alchemy as career and skill provide no OPs. Keep that it mind.

You absolutely can create a pet with your founder, actually. And alchemy does have one op (the Alchemic Mastery chain, which will fire only if you have the Vault of Antiquity and the Arboretum rabbitholes in town).

My bad, I thought the rules said you could only create the founder.

When Pets was released, there was a ruling that pets can be CAS, since the amount you get with them is pretty small, considering it's used to buy their stuff.

One thing on my own I saw in the rules was about ITF Genetically Engineering. I know that, obviously, heirs cannot be engineered. Does that ruling also apply to spares and helper offspring (and what about the baby one can get from the Grim Manor set)? My Googlefu fails me.

Well, it might be better to adopt a pet when my Sim actually has a house, with the Sim living in the firestation the poor cat got so lonely, even after going to neighbors to "scratch on doors", that it was taken away... I'm starting over again, just because I can't stand that sad moodlet of a crying teddy bear!

His maxed skill will be gardening, then...as I'm not sure how to get the "Vault of antiquity" in Dragon Valley. For career what do you think is better: science or self-employed gardener?

Oh, and he asked Morida to move in with him, but then he had the wish to kiss Siobahn! What was the rule for the moving-in thing, that I can't find it? Tha only rule I find is that noone can be moved out. Can I move in more than one sim, but not move them out again?

And Deklitch, great idea giving them the "loves the heat" trait, thanks!  It gives him a good moodlet to be in the sun!

You can move in whoever you want, provided that they're not a banned lifestate (and even then, just throw a Potent Cure Elixir their way).. You just can't move them out.

This is how I get it in mine.

I generally buy a property (normally the graveyard, but in Sunset Valley, for example, I change one of the lots that can be changed to a beach into a beach and purchase that). I then go into build mode and go to the 'community buildings' part of it. All of the various rabbit hole buildings appear there, and I generally then tell it to just show me the Supernatural buildings. Hovering over the icons, it tells me what each is called, I select the Vault of Antiquity and place it on the lot. (I generally also place the Fae Rae Arbitorium (or however one spells it) onto the same lot).

When you exit it, it sells the lot for you and you have the Vault and Arbitorium in your non-Supernatural world.

And Deklitch, great idea giving them the "loves the heat" trait, thanks!  It gives him a good moodlet to be in the sun!

I figure that as my founder has to be in the sun for a while, might as well make it as enjoyable for him/her as possible! I personally give my founder loves the heat and loves the outdoors for that very purpose.

Loves the outdoors is great for immortal elders anyway. Buy them a waterslide and a sprinkler, and they stay occupied and out of trouble for hours.

Question about aging.

My sims seem to ALL be age stuck. All of them. It has just clicked over to 3am, and I checked the ages of all my controlled sims. The ones who were 2 days away from the next age group (my 3 YAs, 1 adult, and one teen) the day before are still at 2 days to go until the next age group. Aiden Jones who was at 99 days the day before is still at 99 days, and my toddler who was aged up the day before is still at 7 days before becoming a child. Am I being overly anxious (in that does the aging up of sims happen after 3am, or is my game glitchy in some way? The day before (which was my nooboo's day to become a toddler, I gave said toddler a cake and aged her up in the morning. I had my child sim read the toddler painting skill book to her, and I have sent three sims (Founder, one of the YA sims, and the Adult sim) to France. They got there and back alright.

If this should be a glitch, do I age up the YAs, Adult and Teen sims on their proper birthdays (1 day time) or do I wait until the game thinks it is their birthday (2 days times)?

Dek have you tried moving your family to the clipboard and then straight  back to the dynasty house. This has helped me in the past with aging problems.

No, I haven't yet, Ratchie. What is the process in doing that? (Is it the same process as I followed with the Bunches when I moved them to a different house in Sunset Valley for the Bunch of Jobs Challenge this year? Going to edit town, evicting them, and then moving them into a new house (which in this case is their old house).

That's exactly it. It shouldn't sever relationships or so any lasting damage, but it will erase all of their unfulfilled wishes.

Thanks Trip.

I have now done that, it hasn't corrected their aging details, I would almost suspect that I misread how long they had to go until aging up, if it wasn't for Marisa's nooboo-toddler birthday cake being given to her on the day she aged up.

Have you played until the end of the current Sim day? Did they age up?

Sorry it took me a bit longer to get back to this. I played through to the end of the day and they all aged up, which is good. Thanks Ratchie and Trip for you assistance. The Oids are battling on. lol

I had some time on my hands today so was playing around with Google Drive.  I know there are already stat sheets for Microsoft Excel, but I also know some don't use Excel.  I use my tablet to record things as I'm playing a dynasty and sometimes the apps I use for anything Microsoft can be a royal pain to use, but I haven't had an issue with Google Drive as of yet.  If others can use it, awesome, if not, oh well XD

Hi, I'm thinking about giving an immortal dynasty a go and was wondering if the following lots were ok to add to SV...
Roasted Toasted Beans Coffee Shop Java Hut
The Grind
Business As Usual Bistro
Dog Park
Cat Park
Sudsy Time Laundry Laundromat

Also am I allowed to bulldoze auto placed lots like the Barney's Salon and Tatoo and put them somewhere else?
Also can I bulldoze some auto placed lots and then Not replace them as I don't want the equestrian centre at all.
Last question, to get some of these lots on the map I have to place a brand new lot using the world editor so is that ok too?

All of those lots are allowed.

Yes, you can bulldoze autoplaced lots.

You don't need to replace the autoplaced lots you bulldoze.

You can most certainly use the World Editor to place new lots as long as you're going to put a venue on them.

All of this is covered in the Edit Town FAQ, by the way.

Thanks for the reply, I must have missed the FAQ page  :o Don't know how as I've been reading about dynasties all day!  ::)
I'm a bit daunted I must say, the hardest part is starting with basically no money. I get so impatient  :-[

That's why you can ask some other sims to moved in with you. Preferably ones with high level job and a lot of money.

Playalot: look for descriptions of residents in the town you'll be playing, that helps a lot! That helped me, but I'm still struggling to begin! LOL

The FAQ page is hard to find, thanks Trip for the link, first time I see the link even though I knew the FAQ page existed… it is like the "Bermuda Triangle" LOL!

I think I'll also uninstall Seasons, and install it when my Sims have a house!

Why? Assuming you have Ambitions, go sleep in the firehouse. Assuming you have Island Paradise, buy a tent. If all else fails, a 4x4 house with a toilet and single bed isn't that expensive - you can go to the gym for the shower, and I believe they have a fridge so you can get quick meals there too.

@Tandrael

Playing without a certain expansion pack for your dynasty is a one shot deal, you do it at the beginning of the Dynasty and you have to play your whole dynasty without that expansion pack.  You can't add seasons expansion pack back on after your sims have a house.  You have to either play starting with seasons or without seasons for your whole dynasty, sorry.

Starting at $1800 even with seasons expansion pack isn't bad.  Like what Shirin said, you can sleep in the firehouse, you can also shower and eat in the firehouse.  They also have an easel you can use to level painting or have your spouse level painting.  If you befriend a townie, you can always ask to sleep over at their house.  They are also many places you can nap indoors, like library, elixir shop, consignment shop - basically anywhere that have a piece of furniture.
