Are professions (Showtime and Ambitions) allowed and manageable careers for heirs and heiresses?

Since there is a problem with story progression, (Sims don't marry and have babies autonomously), would it be ok, BEFORE you actually enter your game, and while you are in Edit Town Mode, to go into the various households and have each household with couples try for baby, leaving the female pregnant?  You then finish up placing whatever venues, change from household to household to basically impregnate the entire town,  choose to be out of all the households, save the game and then make your character and actually enter play? 

To be clear the steps you take would be:

1. go into your town and choose Edit Town.

 2. Place any venues or items like bookshelves.

3. Select any household and try for baby.

4. Go into Edit Town and choose a new household.  Try for baby.  Rinse and repeat till all females are preggers.

5. Remove yourself from all households and save game so your town is now edited with all females pregnant.

6. Create your Sim and begin  to play your Immortal Dynasty per usual.

I'm thinking this would give a bigger gene pool without having to have someone in your own household going around "pollinating".  Of course, it would only work for the first heir but it could be interesting.
What?  Grannies can't play games?

No, not at all. It's not an allowed use of Edit Town, and it still counts as playing households other than your dynasty one.

You're stuck doing the dirty work as well as you can within the restraints of playing a dynasty household.

Another thing you could do though, Joria, if you have UL, is have either your founder SuperMax science, or have the founder's spouse or other roommates do it. Get to cloning townies and making them into babies.

This may be a strange question, the dog ate my special seed and it popped up about eating a life fruit. I didn't have anywhere to store the seeds yet except on the ground. Does this affect anything?

It is banned for pets to eat life fruit, I'm sorry that's the rule. 

You can store the special seeds (the ones with value) in the refrigerator, its only the special seeds that is value $0 cannot be put into the fridge.  But then special seeds with $0 are death flower and money tree, so it is okay for your pet to eat them.  The special seeds with value are flame fruit and life fruit.

Thanks, Shirin that's a great idea.

@ Trip:  Well, I didn't think  it would be allowed but it was worth a question.  Too bad because it would be a great way to populate.  I really hate the infidelity involved in "pollinating" but Shirrin's idea is a good choice.

Okay, I'm crazy for doing this, but I'm giving this another shot. I'm not doing a involved story like Colt's Return. But I have created a clean EA folder with no mods.  :o

When attempting to resurrect a pre-made ghost using ambrosia does it have to be made with your sim's home grown life fruit and your sim's own deathfish?  Or if your sim gets the default option to make ambrosia once getting the recipe and lvl 10 cooking is that a possible way to bring them to life?

No. They can't eat ambrosia. You have to resurrect them somehow else.

I'm in Monte Vista and I have figured out there is no Death Fish. Can someone confirm this for me?

The deathfish spawner isn't in the cemetery; it's in the ocean by the lighthouse.

I have a few more questions about this challenge that I'd like to know the answers to before I start again (my last attempt died due to a computer crap-out).

  • What store content is allowed?
  • When dealing with the Immortals' Museum, is it challenge-legal to have ice sculptures and/or photographs for some generations but not all of them?  I know that I need paintings of all of them, but I don't know about the others.

Thanks!

1. All except for what's listed in the rules. So that would be the Fountain of Youth, the Wishing Well (flat ban on both), the mud bath with the Sauna, and soy milk (last two banned for everyone except for post-ambrosia immortals).

2. You can skimp on photos and sculptures for some generations, or even just forget to do them. It's just the paintings that everyone needs.

In my game, it is currently Thursday and, with my current settings, it should be Love Day but it isn't. Also, the ages are messed up for some of my sims because it should be my fourth generation spouses birthday, but it's tomorrow. Finally, the game isn't counting the age of my third generations spouse. Apparently he is 113 but he has been for two days now. I'm not sure what is going on and what I should do about it. Can I go back to a previous save and see if that works?

I got to thinking about Shirin's quote and have some questions.  First, how could this be legal?  Isn't that also playing with other families instead of just your own?  Second, who would take care of those clones?  Do they go home with the person they are cloned from? If they stayed with you you'd be stuck with tons of clones in the house and you can't adopt out or move out people in your ID home.

Another thing you could do though, Joria, if you have UL, is have either your founder SuperMax science, or have the founder's spouse or other roommates do it. Get to cloning townies and making them into babies.

Cloning, when done through the Science skill, just adds a copy of the donor sim to the household as a baby. It's not the same as playing a family that isn't your own because the resulting clone is in your household and like any housemate.

It's no more illegal-sounding than having a female housemate have a baby, adopting a child, or adding an Imaginary Friend to the household.

What I was thinking is, for example, your founder supermaxes the science skill. Then the founder goes around and obtains DNA samples from the sims whose genes you want for future spouses. Then, when each subsequent heir is born, the founder can use the DNA sample to clone the future spouse. The clone does not appear on the family tree, and so has no familial relationship, but your family can still raise them (like Trip said, akin to an Imaginary Friend).

I don't have supernatural or showtime so is there another way to resurrect pre-made ghost Sims once I get the "oh my ghost" op?

You're stuck with them as ghosts, in that case.
