Looks challenging, maybe even a little more challenging than the Sims 3 Dynasty Challenges. I'm going to give this a try! Hopefully my first Immortal Dynasty will go well!

Can the museum items added by completing a childhood aspiration be something the child creates AND something like crystals or JUST what the child created but ten of them instead of eight?

It can be something the child creates OR something you collect later on in the heir's life.  Since museum item needs to be unique type, you have to contribute 8 or 10 of the same unique type, cannot be mix or match.

Examples:
If your child heir completes childhood aspiration, he can donate 10 Kid's Drawings (from creativity skill)
If your child heir DID NOT complete childhood aspiration, he can donate 8 Kid's Drawings (from creativity skill)
If your child heir completes childhood aspiration, he can donate 10 crystals (from collecting)
If your child heir DID NOT complete childhood aspiration, he can donate 8 crystals (from collecting).

So, if I selected Food as my major aspiration, (the one you choose when you create your Sim), I could then select BOTH Master Chef and Mixologist as my two, unique aspirations? 

You actually can't do both Master Chef and Mixologist, because Master Chef requires joining the Chef career and Mixologist requires joining the Mixology career.  Both of these are under Culinary - unlike Sims 3, you can't quit one branch and then join the other branch in the Culinary career.  Once you've chosen, when you quit, and then rejoin, you go back into the same branch - you don't get to pick again.

At least, that's what happened to me in my first Sims 4 game - it's possible this got fixed with a patch and I just don't know it, but I haven't seen anything about it getting fixed.  :D

The master Chef only requires level 5 career, so you can do both.  Simply because the requirement for Master chef is BEFORE the career split occurs.

But wouldn't that foul it up for future heirs?  Don't the careers have to be unique so if you got to Master Chef lvl 5 and then get to lvl 10 in Mixology branch wouldn't that basically take up one career an heir could not take?  Is this kind of thing, (able to do two careers in one branch), true for other careers?
What?  Grannies can't play games?

Correct me if I'm wrong team, the requirement is to max a unique career, thus the pre-split levels can be done just not taking the same branch if you want to do the aspirations on different sims.

Margerita is correct. The restriction is on maxing, not joining.

You're thinking of it like master chef is the entire career, but you can choose to split into mixology.  think rather that before the split, you're in "generic cooking career", then after the split is when you choose your "real career".  also, even if what you said was true, you still have to max out the career.  so technically you could have a sim that finishes master chef (which requires cooking career) and computer nerd (which requires tech guru), then gets to level 10 in criminal oracle career (it would just be a pain).  Your other Dynasty sims can still be chefs and tech gurus, and they can even max it and count it as their "unique career" as long as that first sim didnt max them.

Thank you Margerita, Trip and deathduk.  Sometimes I over think things, so you guys really help a lot.

EDIT to ask question:  My Tense Sim keeps getting the whim, "watch fireplace chanel".  As far as I can see there is no such thing.  Does this mean have a fireplace and sit in front of it while it's on?  Or is there something I need to do to the tv to get the fireplace chanel?

I snooped around and discovered it's a Handiness upgrade on the TV - the Upgrade Frequency upgrade unlocks a couple hidden channels.

Good find.  I forgot you could do that at high handiness, I rarely ever get there anymore...

The discussion around the culinary career confused me, so just to clarify:

The unique career requirement refers to the entire career irrespective of branch selected, correct? If my founder maxes the mixology branch of the culinary career, that's the culinary career maxed. His son cannot max the chef branch of the culinary career and have it count towards the unique career requirement; he needs to choose a different career altogether, such as painter or writer or astronaut, correct? There are 8 careers (presently, could be 10 before the end of the month) and 8 immortals so it works.

No
Mixologist would be a unique career, so would the Chef.
So right now there are 16 possible careers to choose.

I know it was brought up before about the Soulmate aspiration and BFF's.  Was there ever a ruling on that?  I know I saw Ratchie saying that she thought one Sim should be allowed to have one BFF in the house due to that aspiration.  Was that agreed upon?  I couldn't find the final ruling.  I mean, I know someone else mentioned that the relationship could be left to decay before ambrosia.  So I'm just curious how that's going to work.

I'd actually like to know this too...  I went friend of the world and soulmate for aspirations, and forgot that they conflicted so badly.  I've already fought with her enough to break the best friend before, and then had to bring it back to finish the soulmate aspiration.  If I didnt have to break it again that would be nice.  I have 2 good friends that are maxed out on friendship, so technically either of them could be my "outside bff".

Re: Ambrosia

Obviously the FOUNDER must reach Level 7 in gardening, Level 10 in Gourmet cooking,be lucky with fishing to caught an angelfish and buy a Potion of Youth. Once he reaches old age and has completed all the 8 requirement, he can cook and eat Ambrosia.

Now comes the Heir. This is where I am not sure if I understand the rules.

1. Can the FOUNDER cooks the Ambrosia and have only the HEIR(s) eat it?
OR
2.Do the Heir(s) needs to have all  the ingredients in their inventory AND have Level 10 Gourmet to cook and eat Ambrosia? 

 

Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift; that's why it's called a present.

All the founder and heirs have to do is complete the requirements to eat ambrosia any members of the household can catch the angelfish,grow the plants or cook the ambrosia. If your founder can make ambrosia then it is fine for them to make it for all the heirs.

I think the team has discussed the whole friendship issue, and given story progression is a little funky now with the game not filling the town back up after townies die we are going to change...


6. Have six Good Friends not in the household at the time of eating Ambrosia for the first time. Other Heirs can share these Good Friends except one needs to be a unique B.F.F (ask to be Best Friends). This B.F.F cannot be a Good Friend or B.F.F to any other Heir. Donít worry if friendships deteriorate after Ambrosia has been eaten.

So, basically it's the exact same rule except whether or not the Good Friends are household members would be eliminated. Team - sign off on this today if you agree and one of us can make the rules edit.

Sounds awesome!  But anyone running soulmate aspiration has the same issue still, your BFF is a member of the household.  Any thoughts on this?

That rule change will make it lots easier if the town dies on me somewhat during later generations. That means their spouse plus other Immortals can be used if I run into problems.
