My founder just aged up to adult and got midlife crises automatically.  I know this is forbidden so what do I do?  Just not fill the wishes as they pop up?  This is not for HOF, since I messed up and had my life expectancy set at long, rather than normal, but I'd like to stick as close to the rules as possible even so.  I'd like to complete this one even if it isn't HOF worthy.

They mean the reward was banned, not the generations thing. If the generations thing was banned I'd have failed ages ago!

Lisa is correct it is the midlife crisis reward that is banned not the midlife crisis that automatically kicks in if you have generations.
I am going to go edit the rules right now.


The rule now says:
  • Mid-Life Crisis reward(this is the reward purchased via lifetime happiness points not the mid-life crisis wishes that pop up for a Sim if you have generations installed) is banned for immortals, but not non-immortals.

Does this eliminate any confusion regarding mid-life crisis?

Thank you Ratchie that made it much clearer.  My decision was to just right click the wishes as they cropped up anyway.  My Sim is ever faithful so no messing around, loves her job and can't move so what's the point?  lol  Maybe a mortal will get this as they age up and I can have fun giving it a try.

My sims have gotten stuck with the sim panels only showing the information for one sim, no matter who is selected. Am I able to reset all of them, if that might fix it? Or is there another way to fix this issue?

Do save as, so you have a save before this happened. Exit the game and go back into the game, starting with the one that is most up to date. I usually find that exiting and reloading solves the problem.

bubbles is right, save as and exit then restart the game.  Make sure you clear all your cache files too before restarting, helps a lot.

Thank you bubble and Nutella, that fixed the problem! I'd never had this issue before and it was really disturbing me, so thanks so much!

Hiya! I just have a quick question. It says in the rules that no EA-created lots may be placed. But there are a lot of worlds that don't have a festival lot!

Would it be possible for me to create festival lots for these worlds, and then send them to one of the challenge masters, and then have them see if they're alright for anyone playing a dynasty to use?

The sim gurus have created some festival lots for other worlds and posted them on the exchange. These are classed as Offical lots and are the only lots allowed to become festival lots. So the answer to your question is no.

Are there festival lots for Midnight Hollow and the other newer store worlds? I know they exist for Monte Vista and Dragon Valley, but I don't know of any others.

I have a question, since I've always wanted to do this dynasty and never gotten very far and since today the tournaments challenges end: will the dynasty challenges end also? Do the dynasties have a finish date?

The dynasty challenges are open more-or-less indefinitely. Maybe there will be a time when there's no one around to add you to the Hall of Fame, which would mark the "end" of TS3's dynasty challenges, but I don't forsee that happening for a while. I plan to stay for as long as I can (and I do have HoF-adding privileges, don't worry!). ;)

Aurora Skies Festival Lot

Please note that you will probably need permission to change the lot if you want to in your dynasty file because of edit town regulations.

Please note that you will probably need permission to change the lot if you want to in your dynasty file because of edit town regulations.

Before I actually started my game, while still in Edit Town mode prior to play,  I just placed a large enough lot and designated it Festival Grounds.  At that point I put whatever EA lot appealed to me on that empty lot, knowing that once I was in game and had enough Simoleons I could buy it as a property and remodel it to my taste at that time.  Right?  There aren't any restrictions on remodeling a lot you own are there?  If there were you couldn't upgrade places.

Correct.  Once you buy it as property, you can remodel it to your taste.

So is it okay that I did the Riverview one instead? I read the edit town post over and over and it seemed fine to me. I hope I don't have to start over, but I'm only in Gen 2 so I guess it's not that bad if I do need to restart.

Is it okay to plant the Life Fruit from the Coastal's home in BB to grow life fruit for ambrosia?

Yes, especially because that's basically your only bet for getting life fruit in Barnacle Bay, due to the lack of spawners. The only stipulation for life fruit in this challenge is that it's grown by you, so plant what you pick and you'll be golden.

And if you want even more life fruit to pick, Rose Rome has a few vines in her yard.
