@Meg

I'm not the team, but I can almost guarantee that it won't be allowed.  As far as I'm aware, no mods that affect gameplay are allowed for the Challenges or Dynasties.  At least, you wouldn't be HoF eligible.

I have a question regarding the townies. I'm almost at my third generation (the baby is on the way) and already the three towns are almost empty. I actually had a hard time finding a partner for my second gen too due to the lack of 'townies' I now have a partner who hates kids (poor man  :P). Is it allowed to fill your empty homes with random families from the gallery? I think it's probably not allowed, but I was expecting that the houses would fill automaticly (this is turned on in the options) and so far nothing has happened.

How long does it take for the game to fill them on their own? Maybe I'm impatient.
I saw something about this subject regarding the ghosts when I searched for this subject, but nothing about filling homes via the gallery.

This is actually why a lot of people include a pollinator because townies disappear and we're not allowed to move people in via the gallery per the rules.    One thing I've noticed is the more time you spend in certain neighborhoods the more likely they will get people in the houses. 

Do you have get together? Make sure there aren't clubs with ghosts.  Otherwise just wait.  My Gen 3 didn't seem to have any prospects for getting the social aspiration but then 4 homeless townie families moved in with kids, teens, one parent.   Just make sure to visit the parks occasionally and if you have active jobs (get to work) you could have someone join them to make the game generate some people to fill the positions.

There is a possible solution that I was allowed with my IDC. You need to PM the team.

Oh I do have get together and a lot of ghosts in clubs. Can I do something about that?

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?

@Meg

@Meg
Shewolf13 is correct.  Any mods that affect gameplay are not allowed, we have a list of mods that are allowed listed here (which doesn't affect gameplay), http://www.carls-sims-4-guide.com/forum/index.php?topic=22195.msg394381#msg394381

If you aren't aiming for HoF (Hall of Fame) status, then you are welcome to add any mods you wish.

Join the clubs, take over as leader and disband them.  That's what I do with my founder on the regular.  I had him complete the free for all club aspiration which means he can take over as leader sooner.  This seemed to help mine quite a bit.

Ah yeah that works. Actually the second heir completed that one as well, so I can use her to rid the clubs of ghosts :-) I hope that will help with filling up the town

Hi, so I just hosted a Birthday party for Gen 2 and the requirement 'Have an Adult give a toast' popped up but none of my sims got the option to give a toast, even though they all had drinks and were good friends with each other. It is literally the only requirement I couldn't complete and I got a silver for the party. Can I count it as a gold?

Sorry @dontmindme, we can't let you count that as gold medal.  It's a really annoying requirement, but is doable.  You could use a different kind of party for gold medal requirement, or wait for the next birthday party to redo the birthday gold medal.

Thanks @MarianT for a few tips on this:
- use orange juice.
- The trick is to have another sim besides the toasting sim actually drinking at the time.
- For birthdays in general, wait for the YA birthday, because you have to use the "compliment" from romance rather than friendly.

@dontmindme I have found that your Sim also needs to be standing up to do this.  They have a tendency to go and sit down to drink so your timing has to be good! Or remove the chairs! :D 

Good luck; the parties are hard but as @Nutella says, doable.

@Nutella @tjtemple Thanks for the tips and quick replies, you guys. The thing is that I had everyone doing orange juice (well, I told them orange juice; whether my sims actually took orange juice and not milk I'll have to go back to look) and with everyone good friends with the birthday boy but it didn't come up. Oh, well, *makes notes for future reference*.

Is there a way to get more children (quick) into my dynasty file? Because I want my child heir to complete the social butterfly aspiration where he was to befriend three other children. The one that I found in the world is his BFF, but now I have to befriend three others. I also have a pollinator sim in my household now, so there are three new babies born already. If they age up I can befriend them too.
I tried visisting the parks with the playgrounds, but there are no children there unfortunately.

@MissZoef  You could have someone in your household adopt a child. I often invited "elders" into the home so they could adopt, bringing new blood into the family.
Just depends how much space your household has.

Edited: Oops, I misread that you wrote "dynasty file" and not "dynasty household." Ignore that bit about adoption.
You could also try to have your child "Make friends" at school but I don't know if that will actually cause new children to spawn...
Or, you could just wait two sim-days for your pollinators' three kids to age up.

@oshizu Yeah I suppose I could wait, it would be nice if there were more children in the world to interact with, I always felt that was a bit lacking. Same for teenagers. I will try to make friend at school, maybe that way there will spawn more :) it's worth a shot.

edit: making friends at school actually works. They show up in his 'contacts' and that way I can invite them over :)

Can good friends also be ghosts? Or does it have to be a living person?

They have to be living; hence the strategy to delay this element until towards the point of ambrosia.  Otherwise you risk your friends dying, or sometimes being culled by the game (usually not until gen 6 onwards if the town gets over populated).

Good luck :D

Todays patch and changes to CAS makes male pregnancies possible as part of normal game-play. I guess this means some changes to the rules regarding these changes?
