Are birthday cakes allowed before a sim's birthday?

Yes they are. Can you imagine having to wait for babies and toddlers to age up on the long setting  :o

With Respect to the Skill Certificate Collection, can both King and Queen provide a certificate for the same skill (eg Painting), or do the 5 certificates need to be for 5 different skills?

Yeah, I think if there was overlap that would be fine.

Just a question, I had a sudden chill go through my body as I re-read the rules just now about the following and wanted to check if what I've done is what I should have done:

Quote
Click on the Show Empty Houses tab in the lower left screen and choose a house (EA designed houses only -- from the library bin or from any one of the EA world houses copied to the library bin) you like that will fit on the lot.

So in a couple of places in Sunset Valley, I placed houses from ITF expansion down because I liked the look of them. The houses placed were originally in the library bin, and I think I am fine, just want to confirm. What caused the chill, was me probably overthinking the 'EA World Houses' part. Initially I thought yeah, that'll include oasis landing, holiday worlds and uni, but I just thought it best to check.

You're fine, Dek — ITF homes are still EA designed homes which is the requirement.

Seven, I believe, without checking in the game (as I can't access it right now).

Do the drones need to move out before the next Reproductive Day or can they stay for a while?

They can stay until they have completed their requirements to move out.

I have an itch to play something in Twinbrook for some reason, so I have a question.  I am pretty sure it has been said that you can change ANY 5 lots you wish.  So, obviously in Twinbrook, there isn't a really large lot.  If I was to bulldoze the stadium or some other rabbit-hole I didn't plan to use for a place to put the Fae Rae Gardens, would it cause any bugs not having that staple rabbit-hole in the town?  Or would it be better to get rid of the big park in the town center?   Also, am I even interpreting the edit town rules correctly?  Thanks for your time.

My King and Queen have just qualified for RD 9, and things are going pretty well. However, MN8 has been overrun by dozens of proprietors. They gather outside during the day and inside at night getting in each others way. So far I don't think it's slow my file down, but if it does, do I have permission to save a fresh copy of MN8 to my bin, bulldoze the old, and replace it with the new? My drones would repurchase MN8 2.0. They've run out of properties to purchase anyway.

Also wondering... My drone got an RI who happens to live in town. Can she marry him and move in with him?

EDIT: Can drones repeat skills?

Yes, you can change ANY 5 lots you wish. So, what you want to do is fine. As to the consequences I do not know.

We'll discuss that when and if you have technical problems, but yeah go ahead and save to bin just in case.

Also wondering... My drone got an RI who happens to live in town. Can she marry him and move in with him?

How would you do that though? You cannot move her into the hive where you could kick out the drone and her when the drone moves. Once you move out a drone you're done playing them because you do not switch households.

Drone skills do not need to be unique.

When you marry a sim, you choose the household they move into. My drone would move into the townie's home, which would be like moving her out.

The only thing is it kind of does not make sense because then you will not finish the challenge with every home filled with offspring and clones of the hive — you'd have that one where a spouse is in there too. So, it's not total domination. She must have sweet talked the drone and somehow dominated him!  ;D

Yeah, that was my thought. Besides, he'll probably be dead by the end, not like he's a fairy.

My MN8 proprietor issue is starting to be a problem. Sonny is in the PI career and keeps being sent to interview said proprietor. He can't reach them and can't interact with any of the others. Much foot stomping and lagging ensue.

I am fine with your bulldozing and replacing your troublesome lot to see if it will help. Just wait until Metro pops in with the final say though.

Thanks for the go ahead. It seem MN8 was stuck in permanent SimFest mode, 24/7. My game is much smoother now.

Quick question: Does the Masterpiece portrait need to be painted by King/Queen or can a drone paint it?
