I have just hit a glitch where my founder completed  the Renaissance Sim Aspiration just by selecting it! He is still in the very first and only career he has ever done which is the active science career and yet every single requirement was completed in seconds. I don't understand how this could have happened as the last step of this aspiration is to reach level 3 in 3 careers. I'm really annoyed as I don't have any spare aspirations as I have planned out this dynasty in detail.

I had planned on using this aspiration as my one and only spare aspiration should something go wrong further down the track and now I can't because of this really strange glitch.

I also don't know how to 'remove' the extra satisfaction points he has gained from completing this aspiration and I do not want him to have to quit his career just to legitimately join two other careers so that he has, in real terms, deserved the aspiration completion.

Any suggestions? I'm stumped...and a little annoyed!


*edited I've just noticed that step 3 of this aspiration is reach level 3 in 2 careers...ugh, even worse as there is no way he has done any of this at all.

Do you have a previous save you can go back to?

No...I had just completed a double save where I get both my save files saved at the same point...ugh. *face palm*

* I really don't want to have to make him quit his career as he is +8 max now... I can just remember that 5000 points are not actually his as that is the amount of the aspiration. It's quite frustrating how this happened though as I thought it was the fab wealthy aspiration that had completed...I should have taken the time to pause the game and read the notification. I guess renaissance sim just became another shared aspiration.  :(

I've never gotten the Ask to Move In interaction with a teen.
Does the asking sim need to be the same age or did I simply give up too quickly?

@oshizu , you have to find the teens parent and use the Ask To Move in interaction with them. Then when the moving screen comes up you just choose the teen that you want. Or you can move in the whole family, whatever you want really.

@Playalot, I'm a little confused.  When I PM'ed the Challenges team few months ago about doing that with a child-age sim, I was told that I needed to either move in the parents too or wait until the child aged to Young Adult.  As a workaround, I moved in an elder and had the elder adopt a child (then had to wait for that elder to die).

Is it okay to use that method (ask a parent to move in but move in the offspring instead) to move in a teen but not a child?

@oshizu, best wait for a team member to answer for sure but I was under the impression that as long as you were using the 'Ask To Move In' interaction and NOT using manage worlds etc then asking teenage sims to join the house was fine. In fact I'm sure someone asked that question not so long ago somewhere on this thread. I'll keep looking and see if I can find it for you.

@KTK10
Any age.  Yes, you can move in your "teenager" potential spouse.


Ah, found it... here is Nutella saying it's fine to move in a teen aged sim. Hopefully that is what you were looking for @oshizu   It was literally on the previous page. (page 43)

This is kind of a new trick that players discovered.  I myself is not a fan of this, but it is not against the rule to do so.  oshizu, when you PM me about your child sim situation, I didn't realize at that time the game allows us to manipulate the moving in screen.

I'm not a fan of that either, Nutella.  You could have a pollinator decide he wants one or more of his spawn to move in with him but not the mom and that is just not right.  Gee, who knew there could be "custody" issues in Sims?

Hmm, I didn't even know this was a trick! I just thought it was how the game worked!

It *is* how the game works. I don't think it necessarily should be classed as a trick just because it's not automatically assumed to work that way. I suspect it was intentional because they have generally made it easy to rearrange and mix up households in Sims 4.

It is intentional but being able to move in a child sim without his/her parents is just wrong on all levels.  I know this is a game, but I always compare it to real life ... just seems like kidnapping the poor child.  You befriend the parent, ask him to move in, then say: "hey sorry bud, I don't want you to move in, I just want your child.  Off you go now."  ;D

@oshizu
I apologized if I mess up your dynasty.  I was just so used to sims 3 not being able to move in children by themselves, and didn't realize sims 4 you can do it.

Is it considered a cheat if during an Incognito Party I change the costume of my household Sims only to what I want them to wear? Using the mirror and not CAS.

Does changing the costume using mirror gives you any advantage gameplay wise?  Seems harmless.

Oh yes, I get what you mean on a real world level - especially if you're doing it repeatedly it's hard to come with an explanation sometimes.Generally I find it hilarious though :D

Personally I don't think it gives you an advantage, just puts you in a costume like everyone else but no one seems to notice if you are not dressed properly.  For instance, in one black and white party my Sim changed clothes to party clothes which were red and it didn't create any problem or even be noticed by the other guests.

@Nutella It's totally harmless but I thought I would ask in any case. Though in one test run one of the party requirements was changed to something else - instead of needing a Hamburger Cake it became Taco Casserole.

Changing costume seems harmless enough, shouldn't be a problem.

My dynasty didn't suffer at all, so no apology is necesary. I had two spaces in my household at the time, so I invited Don Lothario to move in as a spare.  When I checked his age bar, it was already all bubbly.  I had him adopt a child-stage boy who never married into the family.
Reading your dynasty thread, however, I understand better about keeping the household size lean. Thank you so much for sharing your dynasty with us.

Does the snap dragon plant take a while to be harvestable? When I hover over it, no menu appears, grayed out or not.

Is the snapdragon on your lot or elsewhere? Usually it's one of the fastest plants to harvest.

No, it was still in the world. I sent my founder and she snatched it up.
