Also, I'm having a sim work on photography. He finished the around town challenge except for the theatre which I can't get to register. Could I count it please?

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

Aaw drats, thanks Trip for helping  :)

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).

Thank you Trip and Shirrin.  I was thinking you could have that clone child go home with the donor and that is why I thought it was illegal.  I wasn't even thinking of actually having to raise it.  Thanks so much for the clarification.  It makes much more sense now.

Thank you so much! I love photography but it can be so glitchy especially with combo rabbit holes. My school kept being a stadium LOL.

Yes, go ahead and go back to a previous save and see if that solves your problem.
I went back to a save that was 10 days before where I got to and everything was fine there. I'm assuming the answer to this is yes, but can I check other saves that are closer to where I got to and see where the problem started?

Yes you can.  Go to the "no error" save which is closest to where you got and you can continue your dynasty from there.

08/14/2014 -- Rules Page Addition:

  • Into the Future currently has a bug and will need to be turned off to receive skill opportunities. You can uninstall ITF using Sim Selector 3.0 or the old fashioned way using EA's uninstaller. You can also elect to play with ITF installed but will not receive many phone calls for opportunities.

Just a quick question regarding the new allowance - Do we have to uninstall ITF now if we choose to or can we wait until we feel we need to (For example, when we start running into problems with getting the opportunities)?

Joria - if you wanted to help populate the town on an unofficial dynasty, you could try have a sim become a genie and ensorcel people and make them marry/procreate. Too bad ensorcelling is not allowed for challenges that disallow adding to/removing from the household, because it could probably be so very useful in assisting story progression.

This isn't legal for an immortal dynasty either. You can't have a genie living in the household (extended lifespan).

I have a child sim outside my household who is in "bot-mode". According to a comment from SassySimmer on the Bot Fan Trait info page on the guide, this prevents a sim from aging up on their birthday. Sure enough, this sim's younger sister is now a teen, while she is still a child. I went into a parallel file and checked her age - she is 0 days to aging up. It has been several days - she's still a child. What are my options here? Should I reset Sim? Can I leave her be? Give her a birthday cake? Remove the cardboard bot-head via a make-over?

You can use a birthday cake and cake her up.

Hello! I'm attempting a dynasty (just a private one) and I have sort of an odd question: Can a pet purchase the young again reward as long as they don't use it? For example, I want the family's dog Misty to purchase the young again potion just so I can revive her and make her young after I complete the dynasty (assuming I do ;D). As long as she doesn't use the potion before my dynasty is completed and it just stays in a chest somewhere until I do, is it fine for her to buy it?

The laws are technically against the use of the Young Again potion, so I don't see anything wrong with just buying it (you're allowed to make the potions at the chemistry set during the course of the dynasty, which is kind of similar).

Anyone else want to weight in?

Agree with Trip.  As long as you don't use the potion, buying it is fine.

Thank you both! I'm on generation three and I really didn't want my dynasty to end just because the dog bought a potion.
