I know itís a tad early to ask, but do you think there will things from seasons that are not allowed in a dynasty, or specific season settings that we will need to use?  I want to start a new one, but donít want to mess up as soon as I start. 😋

@simfulicious: it's still being worked out and I would hold off on starting until we have more things discussed.

While we're waiting for the rule updates, I've got a question I'd just want to be clear on: Does the Grilled Cheese aspiration count as an aspiration? Since it's a little different from the others, I thought better safe than sorry.

@Deme: we never explicitly banned it and I see no reason to change that. It is an aspiration with four levels and work that must be done like any other. It's just also really silly.

Excellent! Glad to make sure.

I'm starting to wonder, though... Is there some particular thing delaying the Immortal Dynasty rule updates for Seasons, or an ETA, since the other two dynasties have their rule updates?

Iím not sure, but I wonder if it has something to do with Ambrosia ingredients...correct me if Iím wrong, but didnít it just become a lot harder to get a death flower?  I havenít played too much yet with seasons, but I know you no longer get the spliced plant you want every time.  So unless they are hiding death flowers in a seed packet, it will be a luck of the draw type of thing.  Well, either way, itís a luck of the draw...lol.

Thank you very much for letting us know.

Ooh, that's a point; that's going to be tricky; there are probably some ways to manipulate that luck (I think seed packets can do death flowers?), but it's going to be dicey going.

Thanks for the update! Just for the sake of maximum clarity -- my brain wouldn't be able to let me have a moment's peace if I didn't ask, thanks for your time in advance -- is this the all clear to resume play (and anything that contradicts with later updates will just have to be worked out), or is this more of a status update?

Yay, we can have Immortal Snowball fights now!
Just a couple of questions regarding the holidays.
In the rules it states there can be only one holiday per week. Does this mean we have to delete either Winterfest or New Year's Eve (default holidays by EA)? Or can we leave those be since they are not created by us as players? And what about when a random holiday pops up on the calendar and we don't notice it in time?
Thanks so much guys!

You took the question right out of my mouth, @MissWulfy!  I moved Winterfest to a different week (Iím using 14 day seasons), but only 3 days into the dynasty my calendar added an event that wasnít there.

Are sheltered plants permitted?  The only difference is that sheltered plants can grow out of season.  I don't know if trees will work; I've never tried that.  I built one of my families a rather nice greenhouse for their garden and bees.  Much better than leaving them exposed to weather.  :)  Also looking forward to the seasonal friends!  One other thing:  can we move Maxis lots from other 'hoods to Newcrest?  There are only a few in the library by default, and filling up the empty neighborhood takes a lot of lots.  :P

It might be easier to be do 14 day seasons or you could move them.

Events are different from holidays. You can delete them if uou dont want to do them.

Lovely.  :)  As far as holidays, I think I'll keep Winterfest and delete New Year's.  I always liked Christmas more, anyway.  I like 7 day seasons for an aging on file.

Any rulings about the Romantic Garden and Jungle Adventure packs? I just bought both of those and I am enjoying the Jungle Adventure pack a lot. Also, concerning Seasons, can you start in any season? I have started in Summer. Thanks In Advance. :)

Thanks for the reply. I have tried using the well and it really trolled me. The first time it maxed out a skill I didn't want, the second time it cursed my Sim with slow skilling, and the third time it made the Sim mortified with +99 Embarassment and I knew there was no way to remove it before the Sim died of embarrassment. No way am I going to risk wishing for youthful vigor!!!  >:(

Seasons has made this a much more engaging, and hopefully fun experience!  I've started a new ID...and had triplets without any fertility boosts.  oops?

SEASON RULES UPDATE:

**Players can increase the value of their Immortal Family Museum by having an heir contribute four additional museum items (for a total of 12 of a given type) if the heir maxes all five of their toddler's skills, completes a Childhood Aspiration, maxes the Scouts and gets an A in school (as a Child and a Teen). 

-- If your heir does all 4 from the above list, you can donate 12 museum items (instead of eight).
-- If your heir does 2 out of 4 from the above list, you can donate 10 museum items (instead of eight).
-- If your heir does 1 out of 4 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.


I just noticed this wasn't clarified when the changes were posted.

If your teen heir goes to school and you save and exit the game, but when you load the game again they are home because of that glitch that sometimes returns sims early from their jobs, does that count as them missing school?
