What happens if you give it on the day of the birthday? Do they still age up; then  you have to keep giving it or are they truly immortal?

If you give it on the day of the birthday, this means you do not have to keep track of all the requirements anymore.  Just have to remember to keep feeding them ambrosia when the time comes close, they will still die of old age if you don't feed them ambrosia regularly.  Ambrosia will not make them immortal, they will reset the elder age bar only. 

If you choose to give them Ambrosia later, then you have to make sure all the requirements are still completed when it is time to eat Ambrosia.  The friends one is the most annoying one, as friendship decays.

So if you move a Sim into the household and discover they have the Bodybuilder Aspiration then you have to change it right away right?
Your choice, you can change it right away or choose to change it later.

Can you switch to that Aspiration temporarily to complete a milestone as long as you don't complete the Aspiration or is that not an option?
Yes you can complete milestone as long as you don't complete the Aspiration for the reward trait (long lived).

One more thing, is pleading for a dying Sim's life off limits? Probably is, but just checking.
Off limits.

@nutella ah I get it now. Thank you so much. My founder's spouse and two of her helpers died today so I have some experience of how quick it can happen.  Thank heavens for the moodlet solver!

Choose New Game and create a single Young Adult. Gender, Aspiration, and Traits are all player choice (except Bodybuilder — this Aspiration is banned for all household members).

Pleading for a Sims life is definitely off limits!  It cost me one dynasty try.
What?  Grannies can't play games?

You can not give ambrosia to a sim until they have aged up into an elder. So your founder must already have completed all her requirements (including being an elder) BEFORE you feed her ambrosia. Whether you give it to her on the day she becomes an elder... or whether you wait for ten days or so is up to you.

Well it looks like I have to start over (again!), this time because I lost my dynasty spreadsheet and I don't understand how it happend. I upgraded my windows, but I also remember making sure I didn't lose it, so it's kind of a mystery to me. Third time's a charm right?

The starting part is most fun anyway :P

If my gen2 has achieved his 4 unique rewards before eating ambrosia, is he then allowed to purchase further rewards that others have purchased? i.e. Can they all end up "never weary" as long as they have their 4 unique rewards prior to ambrosia?

Tracy, here's how I see it: With Get To Work and Outdoor retreat installed, there are a total of 43 rewards available. The founder and each of the heirs must have 4 unique rewards, so that makes 4x8=32. These 32 rewards must be unique and can't be shared between them. But the remaining 11, the founder and heirs can share. The exact number of awards available to you may differ depending on the expansion/stuff packs you have installed.

So I think the answer to your question is yes, they can all have never weary as long as they have their 4 unique rewards.

Am I correct?

Perfect thank you @Roxanne07  I need to work out the best rewards to keep as "free for all" then.  I am thinking never weary is a good one.

True. :) Off the top of my head, all of the needs-related ones, Entrepreneurial, Mentor, and Savant seem to be pretty good choices.

 :D I know!  And if you count the washing hand time, its way more than 23 sim minutes.  I absolutely detest sink, so I remove all sinks in my dynasty house.

Me too! Disgusting but saves so much time. The idiots leave the dishes everywhere though. Even the neat guy collects all the dishes then puts them on his dresser instead of in the dishwasher. Make a fortune from the nano trash

My Wonder Child constantly washes his hands if I don't stop him. It's annoying.

I cannot wait to see what new Dynasties will crawl out of the woodwork come October. :)
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.

 My dynasty sims are at Granite Falls and a townie sim I don't control is on holiday with us... he burns to death and now Grim is stuck... just standing there and not reaping. I have played two whole sim days with everyone constantly witnessing the death... I can't travel home, I can't save or save as. Do I have permission to quit without saving and then just reload my game and play from the last save?

So... I don't seem to have a 'working' Grim in my game. The Grim Reaper that has been reaping my sims was moved into a house and since then anytime a sim dies Grim just stands there and does nothing.
I've saved my dynasty into another file and tried evicting Grim to see if that would fix the problem... and I've tried waiting to see if another 'working' Grim would be spawned by the game. So far I just can't get a sim reaped. In house townies are dying like normal... they just disappear from the household picture and turn up as ghosts in my sims relationship panels.
It's not a problem as I'm on gen 8 now so I don't have anymore spouses in the house that will need to be reaped but the problem arises if one of my sims is on the same lot as a dying sim (eg park etc) the only way out of the glitch is to save without quitting and go back to the last save. (In which case I'll post here for specific permission.)

So it's a really strange glitch and I can't find anything much about it on the web anywhere. I'm hoping it's just a freak bug that I've got and no one else will get as if it happens earlier in your game I think it would basically have to be a restart. Or a return to an earlier save where Grim hasn't yet been placed into a house.

As usual... I haven't got a save far back enough. Grim must have been placed into a house a few days ago and I didn't realize.  ::)

I know you like your grim :)
But to get rid of the bug, what about trying to evict him from the house and delete him from the families?
Then you might have a new grim comming for you.

@LenaLJ , yep I tried that in my dynasty 'test file', evicting didn't change anything as sims still just lay dead forever lol. And *facepalm* I totally didn't think to delete him! Everything I read online was about resetting etc... lol. I'll go back and delete him and then kill of an elder (in my test file of course) and see what happens! And you're right... I don't want to do that in my actual dynasty file but at this point I'm beyond caring about losing that particular Grim. I just want to make it to the end!!!

*edited: Deleting Grim after evicting him didn't make another Grim Reaper spawn. I guess the save got corrupted somehow. So at least I can play as long as I'm not active on any lot where someone is dying. Far out, what a totally annoying glitch.

I know I sound a bit crass, but if I were you, I'd just call that file a failure and start over after a factory reboot. That sort of bug can haunt your game if you tried a fresh start from the same game. However, I know you want to get to the end so I pray for your good luck.

That bug scares me though - Grim being stuck is a terrifying experience since you can't save your game while Grim's on the lot.  :-\

@EtnaFan666 seeing as my 8th heir is now a teen I will just be continuing the best I can. Once my dynasty is done I will be doing a major clean out and tidy up for sure  ;)

*edited: actually, the moral of the story is to make back ups regularly. Which I don't, I'm shockingly bad at doing this so I have no-one to blame apart from myself! If you make regular back ups then when strange errors do occur it is no big deal. It's only because my last back up is over a month old that I'm having to scramble to find a solution.  :)

I've had the bug where Grim gets stuck before all you need to do is quit without saving (with teams permission) and then clear out your cache files and restart your game. Sure you lose a little play but everything goes like clockwork after that. I think my corruption occurred when Grim was place into a household... for some reason no new *out of world* Grim was made. In all my hours of playing (and that is a lot...) I've never had Grim placed in a household before. I know other people have but I'm sure that it isn't really supposed to happen. So you don't really need to worry about Grim getting stuck EtnaFan666, it usually is no big of a deal.
