How about deleting your caches?  Did you try that?

CodyAlex-

If deleting caches doesn't work, 3rd option (approved by metro):
Go into edit neightborhood and evict them. Move them back in then reload the family. This should fix your problem.

** We have a player with your same problem and the evict option help fixed it.  Hopefully it will fix yours too.

In regard to Midnight Hollow, I'm trying to start an immortal dynasty - never done this before - when buying property, like the small fishing park I forgot the name of, can I flatten it and place the pond towards the edge to fit in benches, grill and public restrooms? (Sorry if this has been addressed already I really don't think I can read through the previous pages x.x)

Since you own the lot you can do pretty much anything, but please note that it will delete the fishing spawners and there's no dynasty-legal way to move them or get them back.

I see. I guess I can keep the existing pond but extend at the back so the middle gets raised for more space. Thanks =]

If you own the lot, answer is yes.  You can flatten it, move the pond, fit in benches / grill / restrooms.
If you don't own the lot, answer is no. 

Since you own the lot you can do pretty much anything, but please note that it will delete the fishing spawners and there's no dynasty-legal way to move them or get them back.

You cannot add spawners, but you can restock the pond with fish of your choice.

Sugarcubes.

I got the notification that the family horse ate a life fruit. It might have been a stupid mistake on my part, but I honestly have no idea where she could have gotten it from. There are life plants on the property, but they're in a greenhouse on the second floor of the house which a horse just can't access. I got the notification while the horse was standing in the yard doing nothing. All harvested life fruit is locked away in an alchemy cabinet. Nothing was in the horse's inventory. I actually had her active at the time and I didn't even see an action to eat life fruit or really do anything in her queue.

The only thing that could have maybe happened is that she ate a special seed off the ground. I have the Swift Gro greenhouse content from the Store, so I get random seeds on my lot. In which case, it was very well hidden and it seems unreasonable for horses to eat seeds anyways.

So I'm angry and very confused.

I don't think Horses can consume seeds Would there be (accidentally) a life fruit on the floor?

Poor Trip, I understand the feeling, I was the same when I found out Grim now takes death flower seeds, I feel that somewhere along the line seed coding was changed as he never did that in the past, but as we don't know about it we only discover these things while playing, I've seen horses dig up carrots, potatoes and onions but that's all, eating a seed seems a possibility.

Horses can eat seeds that spawn on your lot or other places (I feed Unicorns seeds all the time when I befriend them).  I will contact the team and let you know what we decide Trip.

@Trip — I am very sorry but I discussed the horse eating the seeds issue with the team and we decided that a restart is necessary. You made the decision to purchase the Swift Gro greenhouse and one of the known side effects is it producing a tons of seeds which horses will indeed eat. So if you choose to continue to use that greenhouse then be prepared to constantly pick those up or the horse will continue to eat them and force more restarts.

Alright. I learned a lot of good strategy from this attempt, so not all is lost. But maybe I'll give up on a riding supermax and get a dog instead. :P

So I've used almost 2,000 bunches of French grapes and nothing else for Nectar Making, but the Vizard of Vine challenge still hasn't registered. May I count it when the time comes?
From the moment I fell down that rabbit hole I've been told what I must do and who I must be. I've been shrunk, stretched, scratched and stuffed into a teapot. I've been accused of being Alice, and of not being Alice, but this is my dream. I'll decide where it goes from here.

Answer is yes.

The Nectar Making Vizard of Vine challenge is buggy because the grape count resets if you travel. It has also been proven to be buggy without traveling, so simply keep accurate count of the number of grapes used to give yourself credit for the challenge.

Thanks! That's exactly why I made sure to use only grapes, trying to get it to register. I've definitely used more than enough.

The following items are banned across the board for non-immortals and pets and only pre-Ambrosia for immortals:
6. Keeping special seeds in the personal inventory.

Quote
Ambrosia must be made from homegrown Life Fruit and caught deathfish. Ingredients are allowed to be cloned but only if the sample came from a homegrown plant or caught fish.
All deathflowers placed in an immortal's inventory must be homegrown or cloned from homegrown.

I hope this isn't a strategy question, but I don't see how we are supposed to grow the life fruit to make the Ambrosia if we can't have special seeds in our inventory until after Ambrosia ???
Same for the death flower?

Obviously you can carry them when collecting and planting but otherwise either put them in a container or on the ground somewhere, world adventures chests or supernatural cabinets are good places for storing them until your gardener can plant them, you just cannot leave them in inventory in case it's a death flower seed.

Also you can talk strategy for dynasties, just not the challenges :)

PM the Challenge Team with the relevant information: museum score, how long it took to play, picture of all eight immortals, and what you liked the most about the dynasty and what you found to be the hardest.

Congrats on almost finishing!
