Wallpapers -- Yes
Floors -- Yes
Add items like desk/TV -- Yes

Knocking down walls -- No
Extend building -- No


So is what you are saying that you can't change the shape of a building?  What if it was a matter of adding an internal wall or changing a half wall to a full wall but otherwise the basic shape remains the same?  One of the things that bugs me about some of the gyms/spas is the lack of sufficient bathrooms so you wind up with a lot of Sims peeing themselves.  Adding a wall and then jon and sink solves the problem but doesn't really change the exterior dimensions.
What?  Grannies can't play games?
I speak perfect Nooblik, (and some Simlish)!

Is anyone else having issues with Sims getting overly emotional about relationships they aren't in. I will elaborate. Hebe moved in Matt they flirted once and got the negative red hearts. She moved on and found love with Paolo. Two days later Hebe arrives home from work embarrassed about being discovered as a cheater. Now at least once a day Matt gets very sad because he keeps catching the love of his life in the arms of another. I thought there may be a way of making Hebe and Matt just good friends but their romantic bar is in the red and the only options I get under romance other than the obvious socials is gush about partner and give relationship advice. Neither of these things seem to help and yes I did turn the knife in poor Matts broken heart by clicking on both those options.
Also he won't talk to any other woman due to the aforementioned sadness. Help.

*cries*

Okay, After Gia ate her ambrosia, and all. Everything was going fine. I saved and closed my dynasty file. That was two days ago. This morning I go to play, I sent Tony(gen 8 ) the park in Willow Creek But it keeps going back to the loading screen. No one can travel. After it goes back to the the loading screen, my main parks in each town comes up as "incomplete" but they are complete. I've removed CC, does not help.

I don't know what to do. Has this come up before in anyone elses Dynasty?

I have a question about how to provide generational stats to accompany a story.
Is there any easy way to insert a table into a thread that can be continuously updated?

My emphasis on the word "easy." I see that our message menu has a "table" function but it's not intuitive at all.
Plus I feel it might be clunky for a table with 5-6 columns.
I've seen simmers share their completed tables in a post, but I'd like one that could be updated every real-life week or so.

Suggestions would be welcome.  :)

Hi, I just wanted to be sure about a couple of things regarding kids.

1) Heirs must be the first born of the previous generation, correct? So, say if Gen 5 is doing the Big Happy Aspiration, he must first father Gen 6, and only then can he father kids outside the house, right?

2) Can spouses can have kids from previous relationships?

Thanks!

So I had a weird problem recently occur.  I thought they had fixed the issue about pregnant Sims and their life span but my Gen 2 heir is now set to age up 3 days after the other person in the house that she shared a previous birthday with.   Do I just age her up with him or wait for the game to say it's her birthday.

@dontmindme: Your hypothetical Gen. 5 would have to do exactly that (and have the sixth heir be a boy too, as them seeding the town is the most sure-fire way to get enough grandkids for the aspiration). And there's nothing in the rules that says that spouses can't have previous kids. And I've seen other people use spouses with existing kids without us having an issue with them. :P

@Ricalynn: It happened to one of my pregnant sims just a couple days ago too (she started in a household where she was the same age as everybody and now she's 2 days behind), and I did a quick search of our patch note threads to see if it was a listed fix anywhere and it wasn't.

I'm trying to search the thread and my PMs for confirmation either way, but I'm 98% sure the protocol is just to ignore it and wait for when the game says it's her birthday. It's not your fault that the bug has yet to be fixed. But I'll edit if I can find anything saying otherwise.

Thanks, Trip. I figured if it was true for first one, it would be true for the later one, just wanted to be sure the first had to happen the way I thought. I appreciate it!

Regarding whether a founder/heir can marry a sim with previous kids, I think the following posts would make that a no-no.


One question though. I thought I read somewhere that we can't marry our sims to existing families in the sims universe. I think maybe I'm wrong on this though as no one said anything in my first attempt. I may be mixing up the different legacy rules. Can we marry anyone in town and move in whatever townies we choose? Just need to clarify.

Yes you can marry your sims to existing families, only if they do not have any previous children.  You can't move in with them, they have to move in with you to your dynasty lot.  The targeted spouse must not have any previous children.  Also sims from online gallery is banned, make sure you start your dynasty on a fresh file virgin town.

You can move in whoever you want, but you can't move them out once you move them in.  They must remain in your dynasty house and die of old age, no intentionally killing them off.  Be careful because your household can only have 8 people max, if you move in too many and they haven't died yet, then you can't produce heir.

This is a very missable remark and it never appears in the "Rules." It is the second iteration of the "no dynasty spouse with previous children," but I failed to find the first instance (only remember that it exists).
Whether a spouse with previous children is permitted or not, I wish to humbly suggest that the Team's ruling on this be added to the rules.

RULES UPDATE:

Heirs Rules
- The firstborn child through natural pregnancy of any generation is the targeted Immortal.
- In the event a pregnancy results in twins or triplets, then the first named child is the next Immortal.
- Heirs must result from natural pregnancies where both parents are living in the Dynasty house.
- Children that result from your Sim having been abducted and impregnated are not allowed to become heir.  When the child is born, the player can choose to keep baby as spare household member (non-immortals) or choose to return alien baby to home world.
- Your sim that has been abducted and impregnated are still eligible to produce an heir.
- Spouses with children from previous relationships are still eligible to produce an heir.
- Your 7th generation firstborn must be a female. She will need to become pregnant without adding a spouse to the household to bring in the 8th and final immortal.

The gym in Windenburg doesn't have a door on the ground floor (just the entrance) so Sims have to take the stairs down, across the basement to stairs that lead back up to the ground floor. Can I add in a door so they no longer do this please? I think maybe Eaxis made a mistake by having glass windows only and forgot to add a door.

Sorry Nettlejuice, the team has decided that any structural change to the building is not allowed.

How about using the gyms in Oasis Springs or Willow Creek?  I know I do, I dislike the Windenburg's gym.

@Nutella It's OK. I just feel bad for Sims having to use that path when they could easly have a door that leads to the gym, lol. Thank you =)

My founder's husband just died. She is so incredibly upset (she also witnessed the death). I almost feel sad for her, poor thing.  :(

Is it true (I couldn't find it in the comments here), if you finish school with an A when you are a child and a teen, that you start ahead on your job later? Or are more factors involved?
I will explain: my heir started out with the whiz kid aspiration when she was a child, she finished that, got an A in elementary and high school, maxed out the mental skill as a child and maxed out the logic skill as a teen. When she became a young adult, I chose to start the scientist career from get to work. When I started this career, I started at lvl 3 (I don't have any aspiration rewards). What of the things from above helped me start at lvl 3? Just the A's in school? Or are the maxed out skills also important? I'm very curious, because I would like to try that again with the next heir of course  :) it's so funny that after all those hours I've played the sims 4 (about 500), that I still learn new things quite often  ;D

Having an A in grade school will give you a B in high school and level 2 in teen jobs.  Having an A in high school gives you the level 3 in your chosen career after reaching young adult.

I think this is mentioned in the tips thread on the story board if you're looking for more things to think about.

Thanks :-) I never noticed the career lvl 3 before, or I just forgot, since I've tried the  dynasty challenge before. I'll check out the tips thread too, thank you :-)

Would a mod that allowed same sex pregnancy be allowed as long as it didn't affect anything else? And would those children be eligible to be the heir?
