So... Basically if you want to get the ambrosia you are going to have to have at least 2 different Sims: One, the Founder who can only max out one skill, be it cooking or gardening, and you need another to max out the other two skills.

I guess that this would be a question relating to the first: Your immortal Sim cannot max out a skill so long as he has not supermaxed it?\

Welcome to the forum n8thegr8!

An Immortal Sim can max any skill(s) they want, the only catch is they cannot max a skill that has been or is to become the super-max skill of another Immortal. So yes, your founder can max cooking, fishing, and gardening if you want, but then no other Immortal can pick any if those three as their super-max skill because it has already been maxed by another Immortal. All 8 Immortals have to have a unique super-max skill that no other Immortal has maxed.

As for needing another Sim - mostly just because of the amount of work to be completed before your founder dies (remembering that he/she needs a portrait before aging into an Adult) and to provide an heir.
You've played too much TS3 when ... your 13 month old's babble sounds like Simlish!

If the first pregnancy results in twins, is there a particular or preferred method for choosing between them?  Or is it simply the one I like best?  Because of course Athena pops out twins.

It's the first born...the child you give a name to first...that will be the next immortal.

I was only thinking of that because they have longer lifespans so it would be easier!  :P I probably won't go through with it.

Ok, thanks.  That was my thought so I named them alphabetically so I would remember which one was first.  And she has the better traits of the two.

Which Dynasty do you mean?  I hope you're still reading mine.  Plus, vampires aren't allowed into Dynasty families.

@Metro:

I thought you ruled that we cannot put the movie studio down in Sunset Valley; that we could only put in the clubs so the Mixology skill would be available.  Am I mistaken about that?  Someone suggested that I put Bubblegum Dreamweaver in the Acting career, but I don't have the studio placed because I thought it wasn't allowed.

Depends if you want to get into the HoF.

I looked back at the rules where we made the changes for Late Night content, and it only specifically mentions the bars for Mixology and Band content.  It doesn't mention the studio at all and I think it would if it were allowed.  I didn't go back and read through the pages, but I think I also remember Metro saying no to the studio.  Personally, I don't see the harm in allowing it, but it's Metro's call.  I'm sort of in limbo with Bubblegum until I find out.  The household is in turmoil now anyway because Antone just died.  I've got 7 grieving women on my hands!

That's a lot of crying you have to deal with Pam. Metro didn't allow Studio, not shore why, but he said no for Studio for now. Maybe Bubblegum can go into Music Career instead?

The Actor career really would be perfect for her.  If she can't do that, I might be in trouble.  I've never done Mixology and I can tell it's going to be quite a challenge to SuperMax it.  I don't have any other skills left for her to pursue, either.  It's even more difficult with the house almost full.  It's hard to focus only on Bubblegum.  She moonlighted at a bar and I was completely lost and had no idea how to make her do anything.  She stocked the bar and made drinks on the house and it took me several attempts just to get that!

As for mixology, try not to buy drinks on house since then Sims won't order drinks from her (having drink already). Having high skill, knowing how to make drinks served in that bar, and having few good unique drinks should help. And let her moonlight in hot spots. You may try to sent all family in bar to order drinks from her and to have them under control. You should also chose her a career with less working hours, no matter which one you choose, since moonlighting is time consuming (and you need 60 Sims to serve, still not shore is that 60 different Sims or orders).

To be honest, folks, I'm not sure why I made the ruling to not allow a studio to be placed. But, that's about to change!  :D (In fact, I need to remember to mention that placing a studio in a Tournament challenge town is okay as well). Perhaps it was because the studio is so large that players would need a certain level of expertise to place it vs the other buildings and I just felt it would be simpler? I don't know. But, if you know how to place it — go for it.

I am not sure why I had missed that either, for some reason, I thought we could place it.  I had not used it myself either, but I was shocked that I even got it in there.  I remember the post some, Metro was talking about the size and finding a place for it to fit because so many in SV were having a problem.  I put mine over on Pinnacle point.  I had to put it kind of side ways, but it did fit.  I am like Pam, acting would be perfect for my new addition and with the house almost full and a couple of elders are at home now.  I am trying to keep most of them working, so they won't all play instruments and max out those skills.  I think I am getting more and more confused now, lol. :)

I took out 2 of the lots in Sunset Valley - the empty ones up on the road near the junkyard.  The studio fit there nicely.  I haven't used it yet, I thought that Achilles might be an actor as he rolled Star Quality but he ended up going with Renaissance Man due to his genius trait.

OK another question...
Apollo (g1) has 6 best friends, only his spouse is in the household, all others were neighbors or coworkers.  Now Aphrodite (g3) has become best friends with Apollo.  Since Apollo did not count Aphrodite as his best friend, can Aphrodite still count Apollo as one of hers? 

I am thinking that is goes one way...  it doesn't matter who Apollo listed as long as no other immortal (other than Aphrodite) has listed Apollo.  As opposed to both ways where Aphrodite can only list Apollo if Apollo listed her.

This got quite confusing at the end of your post.  However, from the middle part...  yes, Aphrodite can count Apollo as one of her best friends as long as no other Immortal counts him as a best friend.

It was quite confusing as I was thinking it, and the longer I thought about it the more confused I made myself.  ::) 

Thanks for the confirmation.

I almost let my generation 3 age up without her toddler portrait.  I caught it the evening before her birthday though so all is good so far.

I'm thinking about trying this out, but I have two little questions:
Can female immortals get their offspring without having a spouse in the house? (Even if they are not gen 7.)
How do I ban vampires from the city?

 

anything
