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.

Correct.

Always remember to save your game before installing any new content. Be aware that installing a new EP can cause problems in game files. I have lost several games after installing new EPs.

Can people who've moved in werewolves (after curing, of course) help me? I have 3 original townie males who are stuck as werewolves, one is a young adult and the other two are adults. Considering we're almost to Gen 5's birth, what's going to happen when I cure them? Are they only going to age up to the next life stage or will the YA age all the way up to elder?

As I remember, any occult that we cure would stay right at the stage they are currently in. So, the cured YA would stay YA, just with less day to become Adult (than he was, when he's an occult)

That's how it works for vamps and fairies but werewolves are stuck. They keep accumulating days towards a countdown but never actually age up so that's what I'm asking about. Do the accumulated days carry over or once the age up occurs, it goes back to normal?

When you look at their portraits, do they still have the brown lines around their portraits?  Maybe they are still werewolves and not human yet?
I know sometimes elixir can bugs out and never actually cure the occult.

For your 3 werewolves males, can you tell us their age right now?

From your comment, I conclude that you mean the sim would jump right to the life stage they supposedly in? and not the life stage they stuck at?
I think werewolf or not, a cured occult would stay at their current life stage just with less day towards the next stage.

@dontmindme: The accumulated days won't carry over, but they're basically guaranteed to have their birthday right after you cure them. So if you cure a young adult werewolf and if they've been stuck that way for a while, they will have their adult birthday about as soon as you move them in (if you do it right after curing them).

Fairies and vampires often will have their age pushed up to 0 days left in their life stage after you cure them. So that nice adult fairy you have your eyes on will possibly be a lot older when you cure them.

What is the difference between venues and buildings? Would a fishing lot be a venue? I assume so, but again, not sure.

And if you want a simple guide to it, rabbitholes are buildings. Community lots without rabbitholes are venues/properties (I see the terms used interchangeably). The only exception to the last one is the Graveyard; it has the mausoleum rabbithole object on it, but it's considered a property. You can't buy the mausoleum itself.

As a personal note, my seventh generation just ate ambrosia! I'm in the homestretch and couldn't be happier. :D

No question, I just wanted to bounce around and proclaim my joy that Gen 3 has eaten ambrosia and thus I have surpassed all previous attempts. Gen 4 is well on her way, Gen 5 will soon be born....this could actually be it.

New problem. My founder has the LTW of The Culinary Librarian. Will she have to learn all the WA recipes? She can't travel for a few weeks, and I'd like to do it before she becomes an elder.

Culinary Librarian will complete when your sim learns 28 recipes. It doesn't require WA recipes because the base game has 28 recipes, and you can get WA recipes without traveling, because they're available through Trading Kitchen Secrets and watching the Cooking channel on TV.

Permission to use outdated version of sims? This is my new major setback, and why another promise HAD to be broken. It just wouldn't install. All would go well....
And then it would crash.
I've tried restarting the computer and reinstalling the sims, but it just won't work. I'm going to start working on the dynasty now, but if I'm not giving permission I'll just restart. Thank you so much in advance if I don't reply.
Also, it's version 1.4.2.??? (I don't remember.)

We have a ruling of you must also stay current on patches for the entirety of the file.  I can't make the decision here, let me check with ratchie and we will decide what to do.  Will let you know asap.

I've just bought a new laptop and installed everything. When I loaded up my dynasty after transferring the save file over, both townies I had moved in, Olive Specter and Nervous Subject, had simply disappeared. I loaded up the file on my old computer and they'd disappeared there too, even though they were both on the picture in the main menu. I also tried a backup I'd just made on the old computer and that has the same problem. Does anyone have any idea what to do?

One more thing: I don't see anything banning young again for pets.  :) that isn't just me, correct?
I have a cat who I really, really love (best shelter cat I have ever seen) and she's mastered hunting and has good relationships with members of the family. I will be so sad if she dies. Please tell me I can...?

Unfortunately for you, I believe Young Again for pets is banned through this rule in the first post:

•Generation's, Pet's & Supernatural's potions, elixirs and rewards that reverse/freeze/extend/shorten age are not allowed.

However I do think there is a clone voucher for pets that is allowed.

Edit: I do suggest you wait to get confirmation on that from a team member, however. :D
