@QueenOfSquirrels

Do you have a save before you travel?  If you do, you can go back to your previous save.

I do have a previous save; the problem is that whenever my sims go to travel from now on, the same problem happens where my game doesn't eve detect that I have sims in my household.

@QueenOfSquirrels

I read some posts on this bug, pasting it here hopefully you can get it fixed.  If not you either have to restart your entire dynasty or not travel at all.  Is not traveling possible?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you can reproduce the error every time you try after loading a backup, try switching active families, save the game, then switch back and go traveling again (Credit to davebignell)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Before going traveling, make sure to empty out any items from your family inventory, especially gifts you have received (Celebrity and otherwise). (Credit to DarkAmaranth1966)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Solution by QueenBeewannabeein the official US forum

        Make a copy of your savegame folder
        Go to town edit mode
        Click on any random family in town and select them as your active household.
        Your active family should now be playable. If you look on the vacation tab that lets you know how much time is left at your destination that means you are good to go at the next step
        Click on phone, computer etc and "go home"
        Once you arrive home, your original sim family (the one that dissapeared) should be back in place.
        Your random sim family from vacation are also now added as members to the family.
        Simply kick out additional sim family and you will now have your original family safe and intact.

Mr. Softie and team decided that you are allowed to use Joria's edited buildings on your current immortal dynasty attempt.  Union Cove world is the exception to the no edit town rule after entering live.

Awesome! Thank you Mr Softie and team!

Mr. Softie and the team has given me permission to go in to all the buildings I created in Union Cove to edit them and make them a bit less graphics intensive, and to allow us all to use them legally in dynasties played in Union Cove..  I have finished 24 of them so far.  Here is the link! 

https://www.mediafire.com/folder/jimwmftfbtopw/Union_Cove_Rebuilds


The "vanilla" version of Pier Fun O Won has now been added to the list.  I meant to do it before but had gotten involved in my on ID there, unfortunately, my pc ate all my UC files!  I don't know what happened exactly but my file got hung up somehow so, since I had chosen to save shortly before, I went into task manager to close the game down.  When I went back in, no Union Cove!  I checked my Sims3 folder under Saves but both of my Union Cove saves were gone.  I must have clicked delete or done something equally stupid but anyway it was back to square one.  Fortunately, I had saved all those buildings to my library and mediafire but it was still frustrating to have to go back in and replace everything plus lose my ID.  Ok, I was only on gen1 nooboo but still!

I only have one home, plus the more interactive version of the Pier to do.

EDIT:  Pier Fun O Won Interactive is now up.  The Toy Shop is now gone and was replaced by the Carousel, candy cart, popcorn cart and icy cart. 

The dress shop has been changed to a coffee bar, (Java Hut thing where you can buy coffees and treats), the bakers oven and is very Show Time oriented.  So your Sim can bake a pie or buy a cup of something yummy to drink or fix free juice and sit down and enjoy them.

The Tavern now has a dance floor and fewer items.  Outside of the Tavern there is a pizza oven and some tables and chairs where a covered dance floor once was.  There is also a vegetable cart.

The pool now has a life guard chair near by and a water slide.

The store that had ST items in it is gone and was replaced by a Hot Air balloon.

The Arcade still is an arcade but includes treat machines and bowling alley lanes but few arcade type machines.

There is a chess table and a gypsy fortune teller table.

The venue is still the same as it was but the entire pier is much more interactive with a lot more things for Sims townies to do.  You'll find a bar tender and a barista in two of the buildings, namely the Tavern and the Treat Shop.  I don't know if this will be a "legal" building for dynasty challenges or not but it sure was fun to remodel and I think you'll have a lot of fun playing with it.
What?  Grannies can't play games?

I have only read the rules, so excuse me if I am asking a question that has already been answered.

Can my sims own a resort, not for the property, but just as a resort. Also, can additional lots be owned in the first place?


---Thanks for Reading---

P.S. Thanks in advance for anybody who answers my question

You can own a resort. You can own buildings an properties that aren't a part of an heir's requirements, as long as you leave enough buildings and properties for heirs to buy as their requirements.

Is there a no-strategy-posts rule for the Dynasty challenges like there is for the Tournament challenges?  I'd like to write about or make videos of my Dynasty challenges if I ever do them.

Nope. Post all the strategy you want! Many dynasty players write stories to go along with their dynasties too, and videos are fine.

I have a rules question.  When moving in a spouse for my founder, am I allowed to move in the spouse's existing children as well?  (Obviously, they would be non-immortals.)  I'm going to assume yes because I couldn't find anything in the rules saying I can't, but I'd like a confirmation.

Yes, and I've seen it done multiple times. The step-kids have to live the rest of their natural lives there, but other than that, there's nothing wrong with moving them in.

You can move in anyone you want as long as they are allowed life states, but you can't move them out.

Furthering the step-kids question, am I able to move in a group of housemates all at once? Or do I have to ask them all separately?

Just had an idea... Can we use Oh My Ghost on ghosts that were ghosts at the beginning of the game?

Yes. After a lot of testing last year, we finally allowed Oh My Ghost to resurrect eligible ghosts.

Though if you have Supernatural, believe me, the Philosopher's Stone is so much easier for getting the job done.

By using various elixirs I've been able to bring my family to the point where my founder MIGHT be able to make her first batch of Ambrosia while still an adult.  Does she have to wait till she's an elder or if she finishes the last thing she needs, (LTW completion), can she eat the ambrosia sooner?  I know the rules say:

"Start with one Sim. Only by accomplishing key tasks is your Founder granted the power of immortality upon reaching Elder status."

but was wondering how hard and fast this is.  I doubt the heirs will have as good a chance of completing everything before they are elders but my founder had so much help getting everything done, including her quickly learning alchemy and getting the elixirs, that there is a chance she might actually complete everything before then.  Right now it's at the rinse and repeat stage of gameplay.

Even if all requirements are completed before elderhood, she can't have ambrosia until she's an elder.

Plus, the elder portrait is a requirement and there's no way you're getting that before she gets old. :P

Dang!  I knew there was a good reason for that rule.  Totally spaced the need for the portrait.  No making them young again once it's accomplished either right?

LOL.  Well, at least I know how to make them more or less presentable if not all that attractive.  Can't get rid of the hunch or the denture munching but I CAN make them look good.  Unfortunately, my nooboo heir changed from cute Burrito bundle to a pretty homely nooboo.  I doubt I can do much to fix that.  Guess I'll wait and see if she becomes a cute child.  The first time I tried the combined genetics of Gepetto and Handichick I got a really pretty nooboo.  Unusually so.  This one doesn't look like any family member at all and I KNOW mom was faithful.

How can you make a locked kitchen and still be able to feed the family?  I tried  putting a second kitchen in my founders private, locked, area with a fridge in the general family area but the family won't go to the fridge for food.  They just stomp their feet and wave their arms at it.  They also won't use the pizza oven I placed so they could fix their own food if they wanted to.  (It does not raise cooking skill)

Putting a fridge in the general family area usually works. Try placing the fridge somewhere else, or replacing the fridge?

I didn't know that tip about the pizza oven, though.

Will do. 

Both the pizza oven and the bakers oven are ok because they don't raise cooking skill.  I was sooo happy to see that!  It means my founder really only has to cook ambrosia in the future.

EDIT:  I've tried several things but it's like there is an invisible barrier.  My Sims can't get anywhere near the old frig.  I've tried removing extras, (pizza oven, baking station, grandma's jam making thing and complete second kitchen), and replacing the frig with another but it's no go.  Getting a bit scared.   It's only the first heir but it was a lot of work.  Adding this to Misc. Help

Try putting the private fridge in the family inventory, the other fridge out in the open for the rest of the family.

I just rebuilt the kitchen and that worked. 

Note on the "doesn't raise cooking skill thing".  Boy was I wrong there!  Pietro made himself a batch of cookies on the baker's stand and reached another level in cooking.  Guess that one gets locked up as well!
