Jasmine Holiday moved into a lot after the Easter challenge was over. I thought she would have grown old like a normal Sim and died by now but she's still alive (Easter gen 2 was teen-YA, gen 3 is YA). She's never available when I visit her home and she doesn't appear on relationship panel either. Should I evict her then delete the Sim via Manage Worlds or let her remain?

Let her remain.  Who is Jasmine Holiday?  A random homeless sim?

She was the Growfruit challenge lady that you had to visit to get the special planters and fertilizer from during the event.

Ah I see.  @Nettlejuice - Go ahead and evict and delete her, that will free up the house for other sims to move in.

Just noticed that the mixology drink 'Snaggle Fluster' is available in Maxis restaurants when you go into the "edit a custom menu" options. Considering this drink increases skilling rates by a huge amount and is normally only available through the mixologist career as a job opportunity... which is quite hard to get, it doesn't seem right to have this option available in a dynasty challenge. Thoughts?

I haven't tried all the experimental food yet, do any of them benefit a Sim in some way? If not, is the chef station allowed on home lots?

You need to manually edit the menu to be able to get "snaggle fluster" correct?  If you don't edit the menu, does any of the Maxis restaurants already have "snaggle fluster" prebuilt into the menu?

None of the Maxis preset menus have Snaggle Fluster on it, so I think yes you would have to actually edit the menus to have them served anywhere. 

All special drinks except for the emotion potions are available on the menu selection screen.


Edit to Add:

The only benefit I've gotten from the food is a temporary happy moodlet that talks about it being art.

Rules Update:

You may alter menus only in restaurants that you own.

With the new rule, you at least have to go to the trouble of owning a restaurant to be able to edit in "Snaggle Fluster".  There are too many skilling advantages from club expansion pack (club skilling perks) that makes snaggle fluster less impactful than before.

True, I keep forgetting about club skiling perks as I don't use them in my dynasty! lol makes it all waaaayyy too easy!

Hi, guys. Regarding my last ask about the bugged successful lineage aspiration, the 'mentor a child three times' req has been completed and checked, the 'have a child reach the top of a career' has been completed and checked, while the the child has completed their own aspiration but that particular requirement has yet to be checked. Permission to use the milestone cheat to complete the aspiration?

Yes go ahead and use the milestone cheat for "Have a Child Complete an Aspiration".

    • 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.

    Since now both women and men can get pregnant with a quick change of settings, (and you guys have OK'd gender customization for this challenge), I think it makes sense to change the requirement to "being able to get pregnant" instead of being based on gender.[/list]

    @Nutella Shouldn't that just be 7th gen (6th gen needs to move in partner so there is only one spot left in the house)? Sorry to be nitpicky!

    @Nettlejuice
    What if your 6th generation marries an elder spouse and the spouse dies before you give birth to 7th generation?  I know personally from my past immortal dynasty that I was able to move in an elderly spouse and have them died on me before the heir was born.  You will have 2 spots open that time instead of 1.  And if you are super unlucky, your 6th gen might give birth to twins!  :'(

    EDIT: Actually nevermind, I just figure out your 6th gen will never have twins because of the spouse taking up a spot even before he dies.  I will change the wording right now.

    I would just like to add that the scenario Nutella first painted has happened to me twice:
    I have a household of six sims, so I move in an elder so that my couple can only have a single birth. The mother gets pregnant. I think everything's perfect.
    Then, due to my poor math skills, the elder dies before the child is born. Now there are two spots left and the mother gives birth to twins.
    It logically shouldn't work this way (there was only one spot left at conception), but it has.  For my sims, at least.

    Ah, so the spots left is determine at childbirth instead of conception?  Good to know.  In sims 3 it is determine during conception, I guess EA change it in sims 4.  I will revert the rules wording back to "firstborn" for those unlucky players like oshizu.

    But wouldn't that be a fail? There are 6 immortals in the house, 7th can't have a child until their sibling dies and by that time 7th gen also risks dying?

    @oshizu

    According to the sims wiki on childbirth "The number of babies born is determined at conception, but the gender is determined at birth." So maybe you have a glitch of some sort.

    That used to be true for sure in the other Sims games but the twins in my current dynasty also came from someone dying after conception.  So maybe it's a bug and no one has reported it. 

    Also having twins at the birth of gen 7 is an automatic failure.  The twin wouldn't die until elder stage and even with gender customization you cannot get pregnant as an elder.
