And the greenhouse doesn't really work, as it snows inside it as well, unless you give it another roof.

I've never had a greenhouse fail, or have it snow indoors. If you're using the glass pieces from the premium content, make sure you lay a flat roof down before the glass roof pieces. Otherwise, I'm not sure what you mean by "another roof."

I was wondering what the rule was for using the dresser to change a sims clothing/style. Agnus has just spun a wish to have a makeover using the styling station which I know is a no-go but can I use the dresser whenever I want or does that change the age too? ( I actually meant to do it on her adult birthday but I forgot!)
Also it's week 2 day2 in my game and there has still not been a camera in the consignment shop... bummer.  :-\ If I get a camera too late for my founder can I still count the value of photos of the rest of the immortals at the end?
 (Here's assuming I will get to the end  ::) )

Using the dresser is fine, because it does not reset age. So make Agnes less of a Hagness. ;)

You're not required to have photographs for every life stage. If you miss one stage, you still get to count photos taken for any other life stage.

@ Trip,  thanks! I started out intending to absolutely not use Agnus but I gave my founder a promise that she could invite the first person she met into the house... so, long story short, it was Agnus! Unbelievable  :P So to find the love of her life it's the first guy who doesn't get angry after the 'heat of the moment kiss'. lol  She's two guys down so far  :o And one of them who turned her down is none other than Mr. Flirty break everyone's heart Hank!

Oh, I don't know if I made it clear that my idea of unistalling seasons was because I was going to start the game all over from scratch, not unistalling it in the middle, that would be weird. I thought that if you started without an EP and then added it, that wouldn't be a problem. Sorry to insist, I could just keep seasons, but what if I want to get "Generations", that is an EP I don't have and it is not a new one? I got a bit confused with the adding of EP…  :-\

You can install Generations once you obtain it, since you don't currently have it. You cannot then decide later that you want to uninstall it because you find the dolls to be super creepy, however. I believe, however, that since you do currently own Seasons, you either start with it, or you go without the entire duration.

Oh, ok Shirin, thanks… I later thought it might be something like that.

Are the dolls super creepy, by the way? Hehe... :D

Some people find them creepy. I find them creepy as dolls (they have bad habits of walking into the bathroom when the Sim they are attached to is using the toilet or showering/bathing, coupled with their "dolly stroll" UGH) - but they have pretty interesting coloring as non-dolls.

Unfortunately, you can't lock doors against the dolls when they're still imaginary - they just teleport!

Pick them up before heading to the bathroom. Turn them loose when you're done. When I make mine real, they usually have lovely traits like inappropriate, flirty, evil, or diva, or maybe all of those. It can be challenging , and yet quite interesting.

So now my question is...if the doll is in its mobile person state, how do you pick them up? 'Cause if I can shove them in the personal inventory of eternal clutter, prior to going pee pee, I might play with the dolls more.

You cannot move them around while in 'mobile person state'. (Lol, I love how you put that.) If your child sim:

-sleeps
-leaves the lot

Then the doll goes back into doll form and you can move it around. I think it also reverts to doll form if you're meant to it.

Well darn. I guess the dolls either get turned into future spouses or get relegated to somewhere out of sight.

Yeah......if you look at some of the immortal museums, there are dolls stacked in their museum rooms. I've always thought it was a little depressing.  :-\

I usually just put them in the founders inventory when they arrive in the mail unless I want them for a spouse. I mean, who doesn't want someone who hits on anything that moves living in their household.

Re Imaginary Dolls

If you only have all in one bathrooms for your sims to use, they don't annoy their owners in there.

Gen 2 had an imaginary friend doll which I had her turn real. Gen 2 married the son of Aiden and Hannah Jones. Her imaginary doll was given a male name (Destr), made real (via the op) and married Anita Lobos (who of course was brought into the family).

Anita and Destr had a little girl name of Marisa who picked up her daddies doll genes.

Gen 2 was also a witch. Interestingly, Gen 3 didn't (Tabl) pick up the witch genes. I'm looking forward to seeing if the doll genes go into gen 4 once Tabl and Marisa get married and try for baby.

So, what I concluded from the posts above is we can't install new EP until the immortal dynasty is finished? is that right?

Correct. If you have a specific situation that you feels can only be resolved by uninstalling, you would need to discuss it with the challenge team.

Haven't we allowed people to install new EPs, though? I can think of plenty of dynasties in the Hall of Fame that had new EPs installed midway through. If someone purchases, say, Showtime after they started their dynasty, I don't see why they shouldn't be able to install it.

Though I can understand putting a ban on uninstalling after you start, and I think the Team made it clear that you can't do that.

Correct. Installing new EP's after a Dynasty has started has always been okay. The issue is with Edit Town restrictions, so anyone doing this needs to refresh those restrictions and be familiar with them.

Alright... So, installing = okay, uninstall = need permission from challenge team, edit town after dynasty = not allowed. Is that right?

To be more clear about the installing expansion packs.

1) If you already owned an expansion pack (example: pets) and decided to start your dynasty without pets xpac -- you "cannot" install pets xpac later on in your dynasty when you feel like it.
2) If you "do not" owned the expansion pack and later decide to purchase it, then you "can" installed the xpac to your dynasty midway.

For example, my dynasty started in Isla Paradiso and later I bought ITF so, I'm allowed to install it because I haven't owned it and just purchased it later after my game.
