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?

This is an existing glitch, you are fine.

What I do is wait to exit after the return from school.

So, I met a teen sim in my game who seems to only have one trait -- that's all that shows in the mouseover information, without a second "Unknown" trait, and this got me thinking about something I'd need to consider:

If this sim were to be moved in for one reason or another, would there be something I could do about it?

If you move them in as a Teen, at there YA birthday, you should be able to give them the other random trait. But once you move them in they are in. So make sure you want to have them in your household.

What do you mean by random trait? Since picking traits randomly isn't mentioned anywhere in the rules, I'm just making sure I'm not missing anything.

I'm not sure she meant anything by it. She's been working on a legacy challenge where traits do have to be random. Anyway, if you move in a teen with only one trait, you can add 2 at their birthday. Older than a teen, the trait screen won't show up.

Thanks, MarianT, I have been randomizing traits some much lately. I forgot where I was at. Sorry about that @Deme

Aliens can be added to the household. Vampires have to be cured of vampirism before they can be added.

Just got Seasons and looking to boot up the old dynasty file. Does anyone know if there are any Maxis made Seasons lots so I can add iceskating/rollerskating to my world? There doesn't seem to be any in my gallery by default.

@Rhoxi
I'm not in game but I believe you can go into build mode and add the ice skating or roller skating rink to a lot. I've added one to my own lot before.
Otherwise, the ice skating or roller skating rink will randomly appear in an empty area (not necessarily a separate lot) in your world along with a food stall.

I just checked EA's online gallery and found over a dozen rinks made by other simmers in the Community Gallery.
Sorry if that info wasn't much help.  :)

I've only ever noticed ice skating rinks spawning in my game: twice in Willow Creek (once in front of Oakenstead near the basil plant, another time northeast of Daisy Hovel) and once in Newcrest (between Fern Park and the grilling/monkey bars area).
Everyone's had different experiences, I'm sure, but just for your reference. :)

oshizu is correct. MAXIS doesn't have lots for the skating rinks. They will spawn at random.

This might be a silly question, but oh well.  Whenever I play a family for multiple generations, I like to do a community graveyard which includes the gravestones not only from my family but everyone in the world whose gravestones I can find.  So I'll visit say the Goth household and if Mortimer's urn/gravestone is on the lot somewhere I'll drag it into my sim's inventory and drop it off at the graveyard.  Would that be allowed in an Immortal Dynasty (provided I use one of the allowed substitute cemeteries)?  I ask because I see there are restrictions on editing non-home lots and I'm not sure if that would count as editing.  For whatever reason collecting gravestones really adds to the game play experience for me lol.

Since school aged children can not miss school, do we have to take them on vacation or can they stay home?

Dynasty players -- this week's major patch, unfortunately, introduced a nasty aging bug while your Sims are in CAS. Here is more information from Playalot...
