Yeah, CAS hates Olivia SKL's last name. I used her in a Legacy as my 2nd Gen spare's spouse and the first time I entered CAS after she moved in, it wouldn't let me exit or save my changes until I had shortened her surname.

@FrancescaFiori and @Magpie2012 - Wonderful news! To be honest I was concerned I glitch. Shortened last name coming up soon for Miss Olivia.

OHMYGOSH this challenge is SO hard!!  I just birthed my gen6 nooboo, of this my 8th attempt, and sitting eating my breakfast casually admiring my spreadsheet and spotted this in my gen 2 column:

Take bath  tense
complain - sad
joke - happy
watch comedy - playful
tell story - confident
Tell joke - playful
paint - inspired

ARGH!!!!  I really think this challenge is beyond my aged concentration skills!  :-X

Awww tjtemple.  One thing that might help in the future is when you making your spreadsheet, use colors for the emotions.  Whenever you enter an emotion on your spreadsheet, change the color to match that emotion -- easier to spot mistakes when I see 2 of the same colors, much harder to spot mistakes when it is just plain black text.

@tjtemple - I'm so sorry....

On my second attempt but I do feel your frustration.

Is there a list of all the emotions that go with whims. In looking at my spread sheet it just lists 7 whims tied to emotions.

Quick Question:

Are we allowed to use the new Grilled Cheese aspiration for the requirements even though it only has 3 levels instead of 4?

Tj,  I feel your pain.  I'm 76 and it is increasingly difficult to keep track.  Look at how many fails I've had so far.  We just keep trying though don't we?  Sending cyber hugs.
What?  Grannies can't play games?
I speak perfect Nooblik, (and some Simlish)!

There is just too many different emotional whims to list it all, don't think I've ever saw a list anywhere.

Thanks for the hugs @Joria. I'm taking a break from the game for a while. It's taken me 100's of hours in the past year and I'm a little burnt out at the moment. I think I'll just pop in for the odd tournament now and again!

Thank you, Nutella. Am juggling SIMS and Blade and Soul. The free anniversary stuff got me hooked into SIMS again. :)

Romantic Garden Stuff Pack is released and there is only one tiny ban from this pack.

Updates:


Eating Ambrosia is the sole privilege for your Founder and Heirs who reach Elder stage and is the only allowed method of extending life for these special Sims. Household members cannot complete the Bodybuilder Aspiration, use Potions of Youth, Essence of Life (from cowplant), Book of Life (from writing skill), Plead with the Grim Reaper to save a dying sim, use Age-Away Serum, wish for Youthful Vigor from the wishing well, or any other methods of extending life.

Dear Challenges Team,

My dynasty file has gone haywire. Right after a birthday party, I lay out ambrosia for the immortals to eat. One sim's just standing around and the other's in the sauna with a "friend."
However, the game has frozen and the sims don't move, yet the game clock keeps advancing.
I tried saving, but the save operation has been stuck for about 20 minutes now.
May I have your permission to force-exit my game and restart from my most recent save? It's from about 90 (non-sim) minutes ago.
*sighs

ETA: I closed my game down since it'd been frozen for 8 sim hours already.

Go ahead ozhizu, that sounds like a game glitch and nothing you could have caused yourself.

Oh thank you, thank you!
My dynasty game lags a lot in general but this time the game clock was ticking even while the game was paused and even while I tried (unsuccessfully) to save.

I appreciate your letting me work around the freeze.

UPDATE:

-- No splitting the dynasty household.


1. No splitting your dynasty household into two or three different household.  Everyone that is moved into your household must remain there until they die of old age, this also means no moving out anybody from your dynasty household.

2. If you wish to invite an NPC into your dynasty household, you can choose to move in a single person or two or an entire household.  However you must use the social interaction "ask to move in", cannot use manage world to move portraits around and move in your NPC.

3. The "ask to move in" interaction will eventually bring you to the merge/split household screen.  You can then choose to move in the one person, or two, or an entire household.  After finishing, you return to live mode and continue your game.  You cannot go back to manage world and mess around with splitting/merging other NPC households.

My gen 3 heiress has fallen deeply in love with an older man (Jermaine).  He has moved in, they have married and they are very happy and she is now in her third trimester with their nooboo.  Tragically however, he is "bubbling" with the end of days warning.  If he passes before the birth can the infant still become the heir?  If it helps with your judgement; he is VERY handsome!

Oh this Dynasty is going to be the end of me  :'(  I appear to be a victim of the "fill empty homes" not working bug, and have had the gross misfortune of my pollinator creating only boy children in the SKL, Goth and BFF homes, and all that is left in my world is "Raymondo Goth" - a pollinator's son with Bella.  The others have all died. 

My "spare" boy in the house has created about 17 children with random homeless townies, so playmates for my gen 4 are not a problem at the moment, but I am aware that any/all of them could be culled at any point. 

I NEED NEIGHBOURS!  Does anyone have any suggestions what I can do without using the forbidden "manage worlds"?

Has anyone else been having issues with the party timer?  I know there's a bug that has it staying all white until just about the end, but what's happening in my game is that it seems to speed up at the end, even when I'm not on speed 3.  Anyone have any suggestions?  I've done the normal things of clearing caches, repair games, etc.
