I just wanted to clarify something: if an heir maxes their career before becoming an elder, can they quit and still qualify for Ambrosia? They still reached level 10 and all.

Also, the Freelancer Career: is it banned for immortals all-together for some reason, or is it just a career that doesn't qualify for Ambrosia purposes?

After they max the career, I see no problem with them retiring. The freelance career has no levels etc so it has no Ambrosia purpose. After retirement would be fine or for spouse.

Sometimes at the different festivals, (was just at Romance Festival), they have a thing where if you do what they want you can get a  gold rating.  Starts at copper, silver then gold.  Can this count toward one of the gold medal "Parties" as dates can count.  My Sim painted an excellent quality, large painting to achieve this.
What?  Grannies can't play games?

No, these aren't "planned" social events. Your sim has to call up to "plan" a medal rated event. Not a festival event

Thank you, Shannon.  My next silly question is, if you have a helper who buys Frugal reward, when the helper dies does the reward go away?  I've never really watched and just usually get frugal for everyone to cut down on costs but it's pointless if it just disappears when they die.

Sorry to be so late Joria, I had my eyes dilated this morning. :) Just starting to be able to see. Plus I am testing out contacts.

So as far as the Frugal Award goes, I want to say you lose it, but I am waiting on confirmation from someone. So I will let you know as soon as I have it.

Braver than I am Shannon!  I need to have laser surgery done on my eyes but can't quite face it.  Contacts!  What a blessing!  Waiting to here back on Frugal but I think you are probably right.  After all it makes sense if the person is dead and we know ghosts don't carry all the stuff they had when alive.  So best to reserve it for immortals in that case.

@Joria best to give it to an Heir or the founder. Because you will lose it when they die.

Don't know if this has been brought up or not.

Can the founder or any of the immortals be mermaids?

We can't say on this until the pack is out and we have had time to play it and see what effects the lifestate has on lifespans and so on. Please give us at least a week to get all the details worked out with the New EP.

Thanks

Can we use the new careers in our dynasties?  So looking forward to these!  Kind of sorry my founder is in culinary and not one of the new careers.

I don't have the new EP yet, as for the Part-time jobs, I will get with the rest of the team and see what the vote is.

Part-Jobs:

Part-time Jobs DO NOT qualify for Maxed Career qualifications. They are fine for an heir AFTER completing the Qualifying Career Requirements. Spares/Spouses are fine.

With the addition of Island living will we have a new lot(s) available, or is it still up in the air?

Sorry for the (probably) inane and dumb questions, but you should know that me and inane/dumb questions go hand in hand by now, especially the challenge team members.

Re The Bodybuilder Aspiration being banned - I know this is because of it extending their life - does that mean sims such as the pre created Young Adult J Huntington III who starts with Bodybuilder Aspiration can't be brought into the household? Or can they as long as they change Aspirations? If not, can such sims be used for Good Friends requirements? In any case, I presume there's no restriction on having them in your club?

I know there's at least one pre created sim that is pregnant at start of game. Can such a Sim be brought into the household if they are still Young Adult, or does the pregnancy mean they are off limits?

Also, re founder and their traits. The rules state that traits are players choice for the founder. But later on, it talks about created sims needing at least one 'bad' trait. Does that requirement include the Founder, or is that meaning further Sims you create? It seems as though there's something in the rules about being able to create further sims down the line to help with the issue of the town dying out or something. Does this also include toddlers born in game?

Are spares/spouses/helpers able to spend any points they earn on rewards that will help targeted immortals as we could in the Sims 3 version of the ID or are the targeted immortals restricted to using rewards that they earned. EG Spouse of Founder tops up on Moodlet Solvers ... can spouse give moodlet solvers earned to founder?

Also, re the rules around club perks vs lot traits ... I'm going the club perks route ... if you create multiple clubs do they all have to have the same club perks, or can they have different perks, particularly the 'adult skilling' perk restriction? As in club A has the fishing skill bonus, club B programming skill bonus, club C writing skill bonus. Or Clubs A, B, C all have to have fishing skill bonus or no skill bonuses?

@Deklitch

1. You can just change the aspiration. The ban is against completing it (though it's one of the easiest ones to complete even without trying so I just changed ASAP during my attempts)

2. It's fine to bring in a pregnant townie if you really want to use up that household slot.

3. The "bad trait" is only for your one optional chance at repopulating your town with created sims. Otherwise traits are your choice.

4. The ban on spouses/spares/etc. contributing is only for heirs' museum contributions. Otherwise they can help you stock up on moodlet solvers and potions of youth and grow your ambrosia ingredients.

5. The adult skilling perks are the only ones restricted...I always interpreted the rule as "one perk only" to make it fair with the lot traits one (since you only have one home lot and one unchanging trait). But to be honest I don't play with either nowadays, not the question I should be answering. :-\
No respect, no chance, cease and desist when I chant-

Good afternoon @Deklitch,

I had some problems getting on the site this morning, but Trip pretty much answered everything.

As for the perks, you are only allowed one adult skilling perk.
Quote
Club Perks Route -- Only one adult skill boosting club perk allowed, no limit on other perks.  You are not allowed to have any lot traits.  (Adult Skill Boosting Club Perks List)
So no matter how many clubs, you can only have ONE skilling perk, so if you pick "creative" that's it. no more.

Thanks Trip and Shannon,

It was all as I thought, I was wanting to make sure I was understanding it properly. Next problem: lot selection

So, as I was trying to play it and get started, I was having trouble with the choosing of a lot. I initially chose the fame expansion pack world and Chateau Peak. I moved the Sim into an empty lot and then tried to move him to the lot and bulldoze the lot via his phone, but was told he couldn't afford to do so. So I then upped his money and it allowed him to do it and also autocompleted the first part of his chosen aspiration - one of the money ones. Which I thought was probably not meant to happen. So, while I kept playing, this between me asking and Trip answering, I decided it would be practising things. I've restarted, and chose to start in Newcrest as I know that lot didn't require me to bulldoze houses and/or kick anyone out/rehouse them.

Anyway, my question is ... did I miss something extremely obvious when it came to choosing a lot for the founder and getting it ready. I had the instructions from post 1 in this thread printed out and next to me, so I tried my best. However, can you please re-explain the process to me?

Thank you

You move him to an empty lot first, go into "manage worlds" then bulldoze the lot you want to use. Exit manage worlds and then use the phone to move to the newly bulldozed lot.
