Oh no! One of my Sims died from laughter! Good thing he is not my heir.

Before he died however, there were the things I did:

While Grim has not yet arrived, I paused the game. Then I pressed G to check his reward points. Turns out he has 11000 points to spend. I bought all the potions of youth and sleep replacement I could. Then I emptied his inventory.

And THEN I let him die peacefully.

I hope that was a accidental death, not intentional killing.

What the team needs to confirm though is if the death was indeed an accident or a set up.

Yes.  Every dynasty player needs to be careful of their "playful" sim.  The playful emotion if stacked with many positive emotions will become "hysterical" and you will die in a few minutes if you don't remove the hysterical emotion fast.

This is why I watch Rory like a hawk.
EDITED:

@Nutella My third generation twin Jerry is elder and his age bar has been bubbly for a sim week now, and now sign of grim yet. It's been like this with all my spares. Except for Nina who had the Cardiac Explosion and Josh with the Mortified Embarrassment. I hate waiting. Generation Five is about to be born at anytime now.

Back to square one for me.  My founder died.  In her household Dina, Nina, Don and she all got impending death notices.  Nina was the first to age up and first to get a notice.  Dina was next, then Don and last was my founder.  Of the group she was the youngest.  Nina died first, but had lasted several days past her notice so I had hopes.  Dina and Don were still hale and hearty despite a full ten Sim days of bubbles.  My founder had one day of bubbles.  I'm really bummed.  It would not have been so bad but this time I had everything except the last friends, (2) and the last level of her career.  Sigh.  Gonna go eat chocolate.

@Joria - Sorry.  Do you start your career at level 1?

@sdhoey - Yes.  Sometimes grim comes the very next day after the elder age bar goes bubbly, sometimes weeks, you'll never know.

I've had a problem with my heir apparantly being unable to get an A in school - He goes to school every day (4 days now) in a focused mood, has done both his mandatory and optional homework, working hard, with both bars checked the whole day, until the very second school ends, where the performance bar mysteriously turns almost full, leaving him still a B student.

Could I be allowed to count this as an A? Or does anyone know how to solve this problem?

I actually ran into this bug during one of my test files.  During school, I check my child school bar and see that he will be getting an "A", gold bar everything checked, but as soon as he gets release from school, the checked mark mysteriously disappears and leaving him with a grade "B", so weird.

Sorry I don't know how to solve this problem, but you have permission to count that as an A.

I guess with GTW, The kids get "Sick Days" from school? My 5th Generation just aged to child and one his first day of school, he took a "sick day'. He had the "pepto" looking bubble pop up so I went into Colts inventory and gave him a bottle of medicine, he drank it and was fine. But the next morning this is what happened. I had no idea this could happen.

Has it happened to anyone else?

Thanks, big guy.  Hugs right back.

@Joria - Sorry.  Do you start your career at level 1?

Yeah.  I usually take day one to get my founder settled in, start making friends, find a potential spouse.  If I haven't done it day one I get founder a job day two level 1.  Normally I choose culinary career, and fail, this time it was science.  Hard to manage the folks at home doing what needs to be done if you aren't there but I think I've figured out a way and will try that next time around.

Well he finally showed up,  9 days late but yeah. Poor colt, every time he turns around he's sad lately.

He has been having such a rough time of it.  For a "baddie" he really is quite a softie.

I will then. I just hope this bug doesn't appear for adult careers  :o

I like to start all my heirs career at level 4, connections reward.  I will find other ways to get back the 3000 whim points spent on connections, I just can't stand starting any career at level 1.  Starting at level 4 also save you time, if I do my math properly, it saves me 6 working days worth of time.

Good plan for heirs but you can't do that for founders, right?  How would you wind up with 3000 whim points when brand new?  Hmmmm.  Lot to think about there.

Question for the team:  Since we are allowed to move in "helpers", and since those helpers can be wealthy families like the Landgraabs, why not just move them in immediately?  You get your first lot, you go into manage worlds and have to bulldoze a specific house.  If you choose the Landgraab house we can evict them, and I assume put them in a different house.  There is also a choice to move them, and you can, at that point, move them in with your founder who is sitting on a mid-price empty lot.  You then just move them all back onto the now empty lot that used to hold the Landgraab mansion since your founder has to buy and move into that lot anyway.  Does there need to be a rule made for this?  Seems like a great way to get a lot of money and helpers instantly and there is no rule about moving them in right away.

@Joria

Well for founder, you won't have 3000 points at the start of the game, but you can have 3000 points in as little as one day.  Personally I use soulmate aspiration to get points, but I don't finish it.   You can switch aspiration as many times as you want, just complete anything that gives you whim points.  If you are planning to save the aspiration for future generation, don't complete it.

As for the Landgraabs, I can see the exploit you are referring to.  The team will come up with better wordings in the rule section for this.

I was just going to go ahead and do it but then figured it would wind up being an exploit and could bomb my dynasty further down the road.  Better safe than sorry.

Now, there wouldn't be a problem with going to wherever the Landgraabs wind up, meeting them and then moving them in, right?  Just as ok as finding them at the gym or whatever, right?

Correct.  That is the right way to move them in, befriend them then use the ask to move in interaction. 

The other way that you mention is using manage world to move landgraabs in.  It will save you some time, you don't have to befriend them and ask them to move in - but in sims 4 it really isn't hard to befriend someone right?

Sorry my reply is a bit late on this one but I had the same problem in a fun game. I found that if the whole family was at the park or just NOT on the home lot when the child came back the check mark 'worked' and the child was accordingly rewarded with an 'A'.
I struggled for days with this and so when I found the solution I exited without saving and ran through it again and got the same result. You have to make sure homework and extra homework is done and that the progress bar is obviously full.
