If your heir dies and your Sim and spouse are young enough to have another, can they have another heir or is it game over?  If they have and heir and a spare, can the spare become the heir in case of death?


If I remember correctly, I believe that is game over.  Others can confirm, just in case I'm wrong.

We need to test the strawberry / pop music -- is it 100%, or close to 100% to getting a girl?

I wanted a son so, each day of the pregnancy, I had the sim eat 3 carrots and listen to alternative music. 
However, a girl was born.  The strawberries/pop and carrots/alternative method is not 100% accurate.

Edit: As I explain in a later post, the carrots/alternative music didn't work for me because the pregnant sim was an alien.

I don't know what the numbers are for Sims 4, but in Sims 3, you had to eat about 10 of the certain item to get a reliable result.  So not sure 3 would be enough.  And I know it took a LOT of watching kids TV/listening to Kids' music to get multiples.  So maybe just try to up the number?

Oshizu wrote each day of the pregnancy though, so this would be nine total carrots.

Am I allowed to place focused drawings in the hospital (or the police station) if I have an heir doing this active career? Or does that break the 'no editing any other lot...' rule? I'm hoping it's allowed as all you have to do to place the focused drawings is drag them from your sims inventory. No using build mode etc has to happen.

Both of those only require that there be that many evolved plants. They will happily auto-complete for you upon unlocking the relevant tier if they are already present.

That is true, but many of the aspirations auto complete prematurely or incorrectly completes itself.  Even if the game completes it for you, keep track of your heir and make sure they are putting in the work/effort for that aspiration. 

When the sentence reads evolve 10 different excellent plant, I will make sure to evolve 10 separate plants that are of excellent quality or higher, even if the game auto completes it ahead of time for me.

If heir dies, it is game over.  The spare can never take the place of the original heir.

This is allowed.  You can decorate the place using anything you can put in your personal inventory, drag and put it on the wall.  We are only banning going into F2 or F3 mode to edit the lots.

How many carrots did you eat exactly throughout the pregnancy?

I just got back from work.  And have had all day to reconsider my hasty post of last night.
I'm embarrassed to confess that the pregnancy in question involved an alien, so I was wrong to say that the carrots/pop & strawb/alternative method wouldn't consistently work for sims.
All my result shows is that eating apples doesn't affect aliens.  (I even made a copy of my file last night and redid it with exactly 10 carrots.)
Sorry for the misleading post!   :-[

So does anyone know exactly how many carrots/strawberries the pregnant sim needs to eat to have a good chance of the gender outcome you want?

@oshizu , you're not the first to post in haste lol... I'm guilty of that on more than one occasion!  ;)



* Edited.

Once an heir has maxed their career can they quit it? Or do they still have to be actively in that career when they eat ambrosia for the first time?

Yes, you can quit it or retire.

I've been feeding Sim A with ten strawberries per day and Sim B ten carrots - the last few hours before birth they had garden salad before I could stop them. Nevertheless I got the results I wanted. Didn't listen to any music though.

Sorry for the double post!

Regarding the museum: as long as the museum pieces stay within the room, can we change walls, floors and decor objects after ambrosia has been eaten? Or must it stay exactly the same from the time items are placed and ambrosia is eaten?

I only ask because I have some idea on what the room should look like, but later on something else might be more interesting.

Yes, you can change the museum room walls + floors + decor objects.  It is the museum pieces that must remain the same after ambrosia has been eaten.

Welcome to our Forum, @geekischic.

Just started my new challenge in oasis springs, where I had played a family before.
Did you start a new game?  You can't use an old game where you had played a family before.

Moved in caliente/lothario, and they are all days away from elder. Do I need to restart?
All days away from elder?  Sorry I don't understand, can you please explain?

From aging to elder. I clicked the plus at the startup.  Will retry, would rather not so many sims in my house!

If you click on the plus sign at the startup and didn't start with a brand new virgin town, then something is wrong with your file.  Try repairing it through Origin, clear your cache files, and restart.

Will retry, would rather not so many sims in my house!
If you rather not have so many sims in your house, then don't invite them in?  Just invite spouse.  Also at the start of a new game, caliente/lothario are young adults, you need to wait for them to age accordingly.

I have two questions, sorry if they have already been answered.. At what age can an heir's prospective spouse be moved in? (If the heir is a teenager and so is the potential spouse) And can Insta Lean potion (or any of the potions I guess) be brought only by an heir and therefore used as one of the unique rewards? Thanks heaps

@KTK10

Any age.  Yes, you can move in your "teenager" potential spouse.


And can Insta Lean potion (or any of the potions I guess) be brought only by an heir and therefore used as one of the unique rewards? Thanks heaps

4. Purchase four rewards not bought by other Heirs.

If you are planning on using Insta Lean potion as one of your four unique reward requirement (the above rule), then only that heir can buy it.
If you are not planning on using this potion as unique reward (free for all), then any heir can buy it.

If you own all the expansion packs, there are currently "43" rewards available.  8 heirs X 4 unique rewards = 32 unique rewards.
This leaves "11" rewards that are free for all, can be shared among all your heirs.

Household members are not tied to the same restriction, they are free to purchase anything with their points.

Just to clarify this... so, for example, in my dynasty I have a sim in my house who I have used to make nooboos in 6 other households. Could my current heir now marry/hook up with/ him and have a nooboo that would now be the future heir?

All right, I know I'm not actively playing the Sims 4 and this is an older post, but I have to make a few comments about this question. Yes, you can promote the pollinator Sim to heir's spouse... but would having a baby with the former pollinator make all those babies he made outside of the household be related to the heir?
I play The Sims 4 for fun, so I don't care if I never end up being interviewed for the Dynasty Hall of Fame; people who play for keeps burn out too easily and don't enjoy playing the games, so I am going to not sweat the details.
