This has probably been answered before but I need to know about the birthday party thrown by heirs to qualify for gold parties.  Sorry for the run-on sentence.  There is no host specified, there is a birthday Sim, Guests, Mixologist, and Caterer.  I don't want to age up my Founder or Heir now so where would the Founder need to be included?  Thanks for helping me.  :-\

It is possible to age up someone other than the designated birthday Sim at a birthday party. I think several people did that for the first challenge we did in the Tournament this year.

Wouldn't it be if the founder/heir was the person who called in the party (even though there are no birthday hosts) it would count for them having "hosted" the party for the requirement?

I'm not sure if this will help answer your questions.

Also: to get the gold medal for a party, does the hier have to plan the social event?
Yes.

does the heir also need to be the one the party's for (like birthday parties)
No.


@MarianT @Ricalynn @MissZoef
This is from the Actual Rules:
 
No aging anyone up early. Birthday cakes (or bassinets aging up for babies) can only be used on a Sim's actual birthday and only on members of your household.

So we can't age up anyone outside of the dynasty household. So make sure if you throw a Birthday Party for Gold, that your Heir is Hosting it for someone that lives inside the household.

Got it.  Heir or Founder uses phone to plan social event with a household member as Birthday Sim on their birthday.

On the Skill Boosting Lot Traits list there is a skill-boosting trait missing.  It is called the Home Studio and affects the writing, painting and handiness skills.

Does that affect the skilling activity or just the quality of the results?

@oshizu  @CynKuy
It helps with the skilling, I have it for my dynasty and they skill faster for those skills listed.

Home Studio is more of a quality trait

What is does:

It would seem that Sims are more likely to get artsy whims in a home with this lot trait. It also raises the effective skill level of Sims using related arts skills - this means that at level 3, you could be functioning like a level 7 in terms of putting out high quality objects.

Need a ruling on my dynasty.  I started playing it again recently, and have a club that has both Wellness skill boost and Charisma skill boost enabled.  I was going over the rules changes, and noticed that this has been made illegal.  Do I need to start a new club, or may I continue with the one I have?  I'd be losing a lot of work/points, outside of skill boosts the club is pretty much fully upgraded, and this rule change occurred after I had made those purchases.

Need another ruling on my dynasty...  Ran into an odd glitch.  I aged up my teen into a YA about 3 sim-days ago, and at that time her age bar appeared fine.  Since then, I've been using the wishing well to ask for promotions and gotten her pregnant, and at some point along that way her age bar went sparkly, like she's ready to age up into adult.  I'm unsure if I should continue on with this game as is, or revert to an earlier save where the glitch hasn't happened. 

I'm okay with either way, as I don't believe I'll need the 17 days I've lost on her lifespan to finish the requirements, but I will lose about 3 hours of game play if I have to revert (my fault for not saving more often).  Thanks in advance!

i don't think it's a glitch, this has happened all the time with my female sims when the get pregnant. When the nooboo is born, the age bar is back to normal. @MarianT  @ratchie

That's normal, as sdhoey said. Pregnant Sims don't age.

So, the child still went? What does late exactly mean? If the child completely missed school and if that child was an heir, then it's a fail.

Can we add lot traits to community lots? Can we join and take over other clubs?

@bluebelle

You will find the answer to your question about lots above you in Reply #2259.
Ricalynn has quoted an excerpt with the ruling on the use of lot traits and clubs, which I have requoted below:

BIG CHANGES ** PLEASE READ **

Lot Traits & Club Perks Rules

Lot Traits Route -- Only one skill boosting lot trait allowed, the other 2 spots can be empty or any non-skill boosting lot traits.  Once all the traits are chosen, they must remain the same for the rest of the dynasty.

REMEMBER if you are not aiming for Hall of Fame, none of these applies to you as you can do whatever you want in your dynasty.

I don't know how the above ruling applies to clubs that your dynasty family didn't create.

I've read that and understood that to mean about the home lot, so it means all lots as long as it's only 1 skill boosting trait?
