An interesting new thing happened to me in my latest attempt, so I think I'm up to another attempt. For those keeping count, if you take the number of seconds in a year, multiple it by 4 score and subtract the cubic root of 27, you get the number of attempts I've made so far.

My latest one ... (after my CC mysteriously disappeared again after just reloading it) ... my founder became a witch, she learnt alchemy learnt to make friendship/best friendship potions and then tossed them at teenage boys around Sunset Valley. She had also befriended Aggie K to look after her painting/photography/ssculpting for the museum.

Parker Langerak aged up to YA and he and kid sister, Kaylynn moved in. He had 'master romancer' as his ltw so I sent him around befriending ladies with my founder's best friend making potions and toured the cinema and the town hall with them around town. Still working through them.

That's all going well. What hasn't gone so well is when my founder found her happiness in the arms of Ethan Bunch. I was checking his age status daily until he hit young adulthood ... so founder moved in for the kill (I mean kiss) and married him.

When he got added to the family portrait listing, I noticed that he appears above my founder in the list, indicating he is older than her. I checked his lifestage and it confirmed - he was day 1 Adult (instead of day 1 Young Adult) and she had about a week to go before becoming an adult.

This is the first time this has ever happened to me, and I've got no idea how it happened. Is it something to do with the fact that she married him on the day he graduated from High School? Anyway, what do you suggest I do? I know this sort of thing can happen if you marry the newspaper delivery kids, pizza delivery people, etc, but didn't know it could happen with townie kids. Anyway, what can I try?

Don't fret because I've had it happen to an original townie teenager too when I moved him in too close to his YA birthday. It's not AS likely to happen with resident sims but it's not unheard of.

If you don't care about Ethan's age then just leave him be, if you do then go back to a previous save and wait a day to move him in and see what happens.

Thanks Trip, I really didn't care about his age, but was aware of the no shortening age thing with this challenge.

Anyway, when I went in to play last night, his age went ... back to where I was expecting it to be the first time - Day 1 of YA, instead of Day 1 of Adult.

So it seems it is back on the go again.

We can't police every day a townie loses or gains when they're not part of the household. It's prudent to ask, but I gave up on any dream of the system making sense a long time ago. :P
