Leontine, in rules it is stated that "All offspring must result from natural pregnancies of Sims living in the Dynasty house." Except for gen 7, so it is a no to single mothers in dynasty except for generation 7.
And as for vampires, you can't ban them from game, but it is not allowed to turn into vampire or to marry a vampire.
Good luck with dynasty, it is very fun, you'll see!

Can female immortals get their offspring without having a spouse in the house? (Even if they are not gen 7.)

No, generations 1 through 6 need to have a spouse living in the house.

How do I ban vampires from the city?

If you have Late Night installed, you cannot ban vampires from the town/city.  The ban against vampires refers to vampires in the family.  No marriage to vampires and no turning into a vampire because of the extended lifespans of vampires.  You can interact with them, just don't have any in your family that's living in the house.

Thank you!
So I'll give it a try all by myself first... You don't need to see me failing already with gen 2 or so. Which will probably be the case. :-P

Could someone provide a list of which are properties and which are businesses?  Not sure how I can get 8 of each?

I also wanted to place some of the Late Night buildings, but can't figure out where I am actually supposed to put them, none of the lots are big enough, and you can't make your own like in sims 2, do I need to delete properties already there?
We could learn a lot from crayons:
Some are sharp, some are pretty,
Some are dull, some have weird names,
And all are different colors....but
They all exist very nicely in the same box.

When you check real estate, there is a column where each buyable community lot is described as "business" or "property."

When you use the cell phone to see available properties, it will indicate which are buildings and which are properties.  You need one of each for each of your Immortals.


I also wanted to place some of the Late Night buildings, but can't figure out where I am actually supposed to put them, none of the lots are big enough, and you can't make your own like in sims 2, do I need to delete properties already there?

In Sunset Valley, I put the bars up on Pinocle Point.  I used the World Editor in Edit Town to put down empty lots large enough for some of them.  They aren't right on the street, but my Sims don't have any trouble getting to them.  And it's not the most aesthestically pleasing with the hills and such, but it works.  I put the movie studio on the other side of the Landgraab house from where my family lives.  Again, I had to use the World Editor to put down an empty lot big enough, but it works.

This may sound like a stupid question. but is there an interaction : Paint x Sim, or do you do a still life of the Sim for the portrait?

Your target Sim needs to be on the lot. Then click on the easel and you'll see "Paint a portrait of..."

If you complete the Immortal Dynasty challenge is that your one and only shot at the hall of fame. The reason I ask is because I know I could get a higher museum value if I tried again. I don't need to start again right now and I won't I was just wondering if it was a one shot deal.

No, you can do the dynasty challenge as often as you want, as this challenge doesn't count towards the ranking system.

Now the question, first does anyone knows if sleeping in blessed sarcophagus change traits as sleeping in cursed one does? And if it does, can my immortal sleep in it after eating ambrosia?

I don't know for sure if it would or not.  Just to be on the safe side, I wouldn't do it.  My suggestion for keeping your Immortals out of the sarcophagus is to put a rope fence around it.

I need some help with Life Time Wants for the Dynasty, here are the Skills I have decided on.

 - All can work on Charisma
1.Gardening, Cooking.
2.Painting, Writing.
3.Sculpting, Photography.
4.Athletic, Handiness.
5.Inventing, Handiness.
6.Fishing.
7.Nectar.
8.Logic.

Life Time Wants:

1. Perfect Garden
2. Master of the Arts (Painting and Writing)
3. X
4. Physical Perfection
5. X
6. CEO
7. Bottomless Cellar
8. World Renowned Surgeon

Do those sound like good mixes? The reason the Fisherman is going into to Business is because I don't see how I could possibly complete the Fishing Career.

@samoht04:

Why are generations 4 and 5 both maxing Handiness?  I know an Inventor will almost certainly have to also max Handiness, but why will the athlete do it?  Did you perhaps mean to put Martial Arts?

My Inventing/Handiness generation had Living in the Lap of Luxury.  And my Sculptor generation had Renaissance Sim.

Have you successfully completed Master of the Arts in the past?  That one is personally difficult for me and I've avoided it in the Dynasty.  Wait a minute.  Isn't the one with Painting and Writing called Illustrious Author?  Master of the Arts is Painting and Guitar, I think.

CEO is an odd choice for the Fishing skill generation, but I understand about the Fishing career.  I haven't tried it myself, but I imagine it's difficult.

Illustrious Author is $4000 Royalties, there is a Painting + Writing One which I have done a lot. Agnes has done it, Dafy did it as well. Gabriella is on Level 9 Painting already, also does anyone know if those decorate the 'Offices' reward money affects the Painting Career, if she gets a lot for it like $60,000 then that would be a huge help.

I think I meant to put Martial Arts, before I decided I was thinking of the Military Career because Athletics you can not do a 'Work Hard'. So I am unsure. There are two money LTW so maybe the Sculptor could have one and the Inventor the other. The 'Rolling in Cash' and the 'Be worth X amount'.

No, the $4,000 in royalties is Professional Author.  Master of the Arts is Painting and Guitar.  Illustrious Author is Painting and Writing.  Here's the Guide page if you need a good reference for choosing an LTW.

Thanks Pam, I'll do it as you suggest.
Samoht, my 4th gen is now 8 level of athletic career and still have 12 days till elder birthday. And she have a child so no maternity leave will slow her down. It is doable, specially since she has only one day off in a week. So don't worry about that career.
Fishing is easy to max, I had an angler who max it by selling death fish (perfect if possible since  they are worth around 2000$, but not obligatory) I did force him just to fish no other skills and nothing else except eat, bath, little chat at dinner and sleep, so he max career much before elder birthday. Huge help is fishing on vacations, so get him/her a tent and let him fish that dragon fish as much as you can. Make shore you fish with bait since it will help a lot. It is not really hard and there are plenty of opps for fishing too .
I would leave writting and charisma as a reserve. Both of those skills are easy to supermax and you can do it while on vacation.
And Martial arts, Pam, why is it hard for you? My teen supermax it, she was sparing mostly with her uncle(spare in dynasty), breaking oak boards (five in one move), meditating a lot and won a tournament, none was hard to do. When fatigue, she meditated and it was all done pretty fast.
Samoht, LTW can surprise you when they pop up. I had my adventurer martial artists wanting to max journalism! Swimming in cash, and Living in a lap of luxury are supereasy. Maxing targeted career is also easy. If you leave athletic free (and chose martial arts instead) you get Forensic for painter, International spy for logic, and military for handyman.  Plus Criminal and Athletic career.

Pam, how's mixology going? I'm afraid of that one challenge, serving 60 Sims, have you done it already?

No, not Martial Arts.  I said Master of the Arts is hard for me.  But that was when we were still confused about which Lifetime Wish was for which skills.  It's actually Illustrious Author that's hard for me.  I've always had a hard time getting painting and writing maxed together.

Pam, how's mixology going? I'm afraid of that one challenge, serving 60 Sims, have you done it already?

I'm nowhere near finishing it.  Bubblegum is at level 10 and has completed the challenge where she creates 25 new drinks, but she has only served 3 Sims!  She's only made 142 out of 500 needed drinks, and has only learned 1 Custom Drink out of the needed 42.  A huge problem is that the clubs are almost always empty in Sunset Valley.  I've been trying different things, like throwing parties at the clubs and managing a bar at a home party, but not much luck at all.  She'll have to do a lot of it while on vacation.  All of this while trying to reach level 10 in Politics and raise a toddler.  Of course, the rest of the family helps a great deal with Forest, but it's still very very difficult.  Bubblegum has to be the hardest one since the founder.  Maybe even harder.

That does sound hard, have you tried moonlighting in happy hours and hot spots? Happy hours were most productive for me. It is not easy in BP, and specially in SV to serve many Sims. Does it count if Carina order a drink if Bubblegum is moonlighting?

What about throwing parties on your home lot? I'm assuming you have a bar, so maybe the drinks made on your home lot would also count towards the total. I know it's very difficult to get Sims to voluntarily drink nectar so it's probably the same mechanic as getting them to drink at the bar. There's no social where you can click the plate of drinks..."Call for Drinks" or something like that. That would be great — just like calling everyone to a big plate of food.

Well, my next plan of attack is to take several of them on vacation, have Bubblegum manage the bar, and have the others order drinks from her.  That's about the last thing I can think of.

Anushka,I mostly play long generational games so I would definitely do the the immortal dynasty again. I have a long list of things I would do differently. Of course if a certain Metropolis man comes up with another long generational challenge I might just do that instead.
Of course I need to finish the dynasty I am doing right now first.
