January 13th new patch:
"Sim fertility levels had reached an all-time high recently, and twins were popping out all over! Our specialists have examined the issue, and administered a correction to the abundant babies. Sims should no longer find they are having twins (or triplets) at an alarming rate."

I am so glad they fix this.  In my dynasty, I was popping out twins and triplets like crazy, so exhausting.

Agreed. I had to abstain from having kids in my current gen up until now because I didn't want to deal with mulitples, and my heir is getting older so if they hadn't fixed it soon I would've needed to have kids anyway and just deal with it.

Nutella, When  you befriend the Hermit, In the hidden lot, there are alot of tomato plants there. I don't know how traveling is going to work with the Dynasty yet, but that will help when needed.

Thanks for the info.  Traveling is fine in dynasty, the days will pass just as usual, and you will also age up just as usual.  I don't see any need to ban or restrict traveling, unless there is an exploit somewhere that I haven't discovered.

I noticed that there's a new party with outdoor retreat, rough translation is 'frankfurters party' or 'pigs in a blanket party'? (I play in another language), will this be added to the 5 different parties per generation?

I haven't travelled to Granite Falls yet, do Sims age and are we allowed to go on vacation? Is there a limit to how long we can be away?

My founder is stuck on her music aspiration where she has to mentor another Sim, she's maxed violin and guitar and there is no option to mentor, what should I do?

Yes, sims do age normally in Granite Falls.  There is no restriction on vacation, you can go as many times as you want and you can go as long as you want.

As for mentoring, you can do it to your spouse or children.  Have them play the violin or guitar, then your music sim should have the option to mentor them.  It is hard to mentor NPC, as it is hard to catch NPC sim playing violin or guitar.  With sims in your household you can control, much easier.

OK, thank you. I was using the interaction with a household Sim and it didn't work. I loaded my game today and tried it on another household member who didn't have any skills in instruments and that seemed to work.

I've run into a minor (hopefully) issue that I need help with.
Marko, my future second Immortal, just about half an hour ago real time managed to get the targeted BFF to good friends.
But the guy refuses to be asked the question to become BFF's!
Their relationship is high enough that it should be there, but it isn't showing up anywhere when I click on the guy.

I now wonder if it is something with that sim causing issues or is something else going on?

Try resetting your sim and also the targetted BFF sim.  IF that still didn't work, save your game close down and use Origin to repair game, then restart your file and see if that work.

This challenge looks fun, I think I will start it. Maybe I should take some pictures and try story telling as well.

Since the new spouse for the second generation moved into my dynasty household, she is constantly mourning the tombstone I have on my lot. It's from the spouse of the founder. This new spouse doesn't even know the sim that died.
Right now I can't let her make a single drink at the bar. Every time she tries to make a drink, she cancels that interaction and starts to mourn the dead sim. it's driving me nuts. I've build a small house on the lot where I will keep the urns of the dead (the sims can't go there), but it doesn't help. I would love to keep the urn on the lot without having this new sims mourn all the time. I've had this before but I don't know how to stop it (unless I put the tombstone in someone's inventory) I kinda want to prevent having it in a sim's inventory all the time, so I was wondering if there was another way to stop it. it's super annoying.
Has anyone else had this problem? Everyone else on the lot is fine and doesn't do this. When this sim wasn't in my household and when she came over she didn't do this either. It's so weird. Maybe this is a bug?

So the sim mourns even when she can't get to the urn?  I am assuming you removed the door to the small house you built for the dead.  I can't stop laughing after I read your post.  ;D

So nobody has a solution, except putting it in inventory? (or waiting for this sim to die  ::) ) that's a shame  :P

Unfortunately, I don't think there's anything you can do, sadly.  I've noticed that there are just some Sims that go and mourn unnecessarily.  So putting it in the inventory or moving it off the lot seem to be the only viable solutions at this point.

Added to General Rules and Restrictions:

  • Editing any lot other than home lot is banned, except for putting tombstones in substitute cemeteries.
  • Substitute cemeteries: Willow Creek (Magnolia Blossom Park) and Oasis Springs (Desert Bloom Park).

Added to FAQ:

What can I do with the graves of non-immortals?
-- 1. You can keep them on your lot and deal with the ghosts.
-- 2. You can place them in magnolia blossom park (willow creek) or desert bloom park (oasis springs).
-- 3. You can carry around the grave in inventory and essentially never deal with it at all.

This was added to the rules earlier. Does it help you at all?

It does actually. Forgot I could make a graveyard on another lot. I think I might do that.

Am I able to store all my death flowers in the roof space as I can't find anything to store it in? I've also ran out of space so I thought of having each immortals 'museum' in different sections of the house? My founder has MySim trophies on a stone table and second gen has her paintings on easels in the garden.

Yes you can store your death flowers in the roof spaces.  For your museum, you can build just one building and put ALL the heir's contributed items in the one building.

Thanks for confirming the first part. I don't really have anywhere to build a museum unless I destroy the children's area which I would hate to do. Does it have to be a building and not any old place in the house/garden? If so I may have to rebuild the whole lot  :(

It does not have to be a separate building. I think that's the norm for most players just to keep the museum items unique to themselves.

Yes don't have to be separate building.  Just anywhere on your lot will be fine, but most players like to display their items and build a museum to showcase it. 

Personally I like to protect my items from my wandering sims - if I don't watch my sim carefully, they tend to drop what they are suppose to do and go wander off doing something else.  That is what I don't like about sims 4, when I tell the sim to read or watch tv, they never sit still.  I build a museum with no door to protect the items (like cooking dishes).
