If my sim wants to contribute harvests (from gardening) which includes going to Sixam to get alien plants, do they also have to build the rocket/wormhole to get to Sixam themselves? Or can they use a rocket or wormhole that was built by another sim?
They can use the rocket/wormhole built by another sim, but they have to personally travel to Sixam and harvest the plant, then come home and grow it.  You have to use harvests from homegrown plants only.

I guess in a similar vein, can a chef use ingredients from the family garden, or do they also have to grow/fish/obtain all the ingredients for whatever it is they're cook themselves?
Depends on what you plan, museum or ambrosia?
Ambrosia -- for the immortal requirement.  Your heir/founder doesn't have to cook it themselves or collect the ingredients themselves.  Everyone in the household can cook and/or help collect the ingredients.
Museum -- if this is for museum collection, your heir/chef must cook it themselves but they can use ingredients from family garden or directly from the refrigerator.

Serious issue that might affect dynasty/legacy play

 New post on Crinrict's Sims 4 Help Blog   
   
   
Clubs broken with Patch 1.25.135
by crin

Unfortunately Patch 1.25.135 has practically broken clubs. According to alanmichael1 and others the following issues occur

    Restarting the game or changing the lot, will reset your club points to zero points. They will come back after starting a meeting or clicking on the group settings.
    If you have existing groups with more than 6 people, the extra members will be removed and the places locked
    After restarting the game, every new member in smaller groups will be evicted although they're place stays unlocked
    The lot the meeting starts isn't really the lot type chosen

This affects new and old saves and it's unclear to what extent it will break your clubs permanently. I would suggest not to play any existing save games that you have clubs in you care about.

If you haven't patched yet, you can try avoiding the patch but you'll need to put Origin in offline mode before it gets a chance to know about the patch.

Also make sure to backup your files before attempting any tests.

More info to follow as I have them.

 While we now have more rules regarding clubs and how we can use them in dynasty play, my concern is the part about evicting members which is sometimes used to get a mass of people onto a lot.  Can we avoid accepting this patch even though the rules state we must be completely patched up?  At least until they have this fixed.  Otherwise I can see a lot of dynasties being put on hold and no game play happening.
What?  Grannies can't play games?
I speak perfect Nooblik, (and some Simlish)!

There's a new collection of Plushies from the Holiday crackers from the Holiday pack. Can we use the plushies for museum pieces if we want?


Thanks!

I'm confused, why would you evict?  Are you talking about evicting ghost?

I think Joria was talking about a bug that came in the December 1 patch that removed Sims from clubs. That bug was fixed in the most recent patch.

Yep, what Marian T said.  Glad to hear it's fixed.  I've been avoiding playing my dynasty because my family is all in their own club and use it to rally troops so I'd hate to have one left out.  Another family member has another club used to get kids from pollination to the lot en mas.  Good for socialization and parties.

Announcement:

Hall of Fame Prize. All players who have made it into the Hall of Fame by the end of 2017 will be entered into a random drawing at the end of the year. One lucky player will be randomly chosen for a $50 Amazon gift card. It's the team's way of saying thank you to those who dedicate a serious investment of time to finish their dynasties. You don't have to write a story, but should be prepared to furnish a detailed account of your dynasty.

Little bit of an off question, but after losing my save of my Dynasty, it made me curious. Are aliens viable for parents to heirs? I know the alien traits would probably be considered cheating for an actual heir, but the hybrids do not inherit those. Would it be an acceptable pregnancy provided it isn't an abduction?

I used to be able to catch angelfish left and right and now it takes forever to just catch one.  Is this a patch issue or just luck of the draw?

Yes, your dynasty heir may marry an alien.

I'm just wondering about the produce vendors. Can we buy the produce to use to start the gardens since it's all normal produce? I've looked and haven't seen this asked.

Just saw the Toddlers update that just came out.

I don't know anything about it yet, other than that we have Toddlers. Will it affect any of the challenge rules?

Thank you for your time!

TODDLER'S RULES UPDATE:

**Players can increase the value of their Immortal Family Museum by having an heir contribute three additional museum items (for a total of 11 of a given type) if the heir maxes all five of their toddler's skills, completes a Childhood Aspiration, and gets an A in school (as a Child and a Teen).

-- If your heir do all 3 from the above list, you can donate 11 museum items (instead of eight).
-- If your heir do 2 out of 3 from the above list, you can donate 10 museum items (instead of eight).
-- If your heir do 1 out of 3 from the above list, you can donate 9 museum items (instead of eight).
-- If your heir did not do any of the optional requirements, you can donate 8 museum items.

Remember these are optional requirements to increase museum values, does not affect hall of fame eligibility.  Spreadsheet for the Immortal Dynasty will be updated shortly.

My founder has thrown two parties to try and get his last one. Everything was done, but nothing tick off as completed. :( So the game said they were failures. Is anyone else having this problem?
