My polinator, Don Lothario of course, now has life line bubbling.  I really did not want to face witnessing another death.  Can I send him on vacation and let him just die there?  I won't be killing him and he's still a member of the family.
What?  Grannies can't play games?

You could, although I don't know if that will mess up your game.  There have been Grim Reaper bugs, not sure if that will affect you.

I had my pollinator mainly either fishing down at the river or in his locked bedroom in his last days. Eventually Grim got him in the bedroom and none of the family witnessed, they just carried on with their day!

Thank you @nutella. I've been lurking a while but this is my first time if having something useful (hopefully) to contribute!

Changes:

With the addition of Newcrest, you are allowed to place "MAXIS CREATED" buildings (commercial and residential) in your dynasty.  Go into gallery, look under "My library", the official maxis created buildings/houses will be in there.

Do you think placing new houses might spawn new residents? Here's hoping!

Do different variations of an emotion, like "Embarrassed" and "Very Embarrassed," "Mortified," or "Playful" "very playful" and "Hysterical" etc. count as the same emotion?

Also, just to make sure I understand: regarding the unique aspirations, each heir has to do his/her own work for the aspiration to count, right? Like, if they were doing the collecting one, they have to collect the items themselves, and if it's the botany one they can only evolve plants they themselves planted, correct?

Yes, Embarrassed, Very Embarrassed, and Mortified would be allowed only one emotional whim -- embarrassed. And with regard to the unique aspirations, the heir does have to do all the work connected with that aspiration. For example, you can't have someone collect crystals and then set them on the ground for the heir to "collect."

Gardening is a bit tricky. If you have a large garden, you'll probably have several people working on it. I had my founder do the Freelance Botanist aspiration, which is one approach. Now that we have locking doors (and gates), you might want to fence off your heir's garden from the rest.

Once an heir has completed his two unique aspirations can he then complete others that his ancestors have completed?

No.  If the ancestors has claimed unique on 2 aspirations, none of your other heirs can complete it.

So sorry to hear about that tjtemple. 

Rule:
2 - Complete two Adult Aspirations no other Heir has completed.

Example:
Heir #1 completes Mansion Baron, claim as one of his unique aspiration (under requirement no. 2)
Heir #2 completes Mansion Baron too, thus making heir #1 requirement 2 invalid.  Does it make sense?

It does now. I just didn't have it in mind, and they just get so talented and skilled they complete them almost by accident!

Does the same apply to the unique rewards?

It hasn't happened for me yet either, but I'm testing something else out, so fingers crossed!

Yes. the same applies to "unique" rewards.

Example:
Founder claim 4 unique rewards -- savant, steel bladder, morning sim, and night owl.
These 4 rewards cannot be purchase by any heirs in the future.

Wow, tjtemple, you are sort of a newbie to the Immortal Dynasty thing. I'm guessing Sims 4i is your first Sims experience, right? The same rules applied in the original rules for Sims 3.

No worries, you can always restart a new Dynasty and learn from the experience and the mods and creator(Metropolis, who created the original rules) are always friendly and helpful.

Anyways, welcome to the forums!
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.

Thanks @etnafan666 I am a long time Sims player but always give up through boredom and running out of challenges. This board has totally revitalised my interest! Perhaps a dynasty challenge was a bit too much for my first! Anyway... I have happily abandoned them and started planning for the entertainment challenge instead. I'll certainly get all the rules straight before I start though!
