It looks like the cooking bug is back - I can't seem to cook, the money is deducted by the action never happens. :( If anyone can PM me with a way to fix it, I'd be glad - I can't repair the game from Origin as the option is unavailable.

Also, I wanted to ask something that was mentioned about on the tips thread in the Immortal Dynasty forum - I mentioned that completing an Immortal Dynasty was impossible after Generation 6 for base game because you can't have Wedding Parties for Generation 7 or 8, but ManiSims said that you could double up on parties if the other party was on another lot. I know you can set the lot where the party takes place. So if I had a house party at someone else's house and one at my house, would that count as two separate gold medals for the the party requirement? What about if i had a gold medal date at the bar and one at the house, would that count as two separate gold medal events?

If that was the case, then it would be clear what the five gold medal events for Generation 7 would be - five seperate gold medal dates at various locations! ;) I'd like to hear from the Boss(Metro) for official rulings on that.
I play The Sims 4 for fun, so I don't care if I never end up being interviewed for the Dynasty Hall of Fame; people who play for keeps burn out too easily and don't enjoy playing the games, so I am going to not sweat the details.

Yeah once you run out of different types of events (date, house party, etc) then go ahead and change the location and I am okay with the new location counting towards the requirement.

I've sent you 2 PM's hopefully the second one is the fix you need.  :)  My dynasty is hit with this bug often... so I know how frustrating it is.

Could you clarify a bit?  Is it okay to have 5 dates at different locations count for your 5 parties, or do you need to make your best possible effort to complete 1 of each party type at gold before resorting to parties at other locations?

No you can't use date at different locations.  Date can only count as one medal regardless of location.     

need to make your best possible effort to complete 1 of each party type at gold before resorting to parties at other locations?
Yes.

What's the status with BFFs right now? I want one of my children to do the Social aspiration, but one of the requirements is have a BFF.  I'm worried it will mess things up later on when he needs a BFF to eat Ambrosia if the BFF gets culled or something.

As far as I've been able to tell, you can switch your BFF at any time, so long as the new BFF has as much or more friendship than the other BFF.  A recent, and useful change.

Are we able to uses poses as long as it's in a different save file?

Edit: I have a weird glitch. After my immortal has eaten her ambrosia I can't drag it to the sink or bin. Sims can't wash it either as there is no option to do so. It doesn't affect any other dishes, just the ambrosia plate. The only way I'm able to get rid of it is to create a 1x1 room and delete it. It ends up in the family inventory and can be sold from there. Repairing the game and clearing caches has not solved it either. It's not a huge problem but really annoying.

This happens to me every time an immortal eats ambrosia. I am able to go into building mode and delete it by grabbing the plate and hitting the delete key on my keyboard. Which in itself is strange as you can't do that with normal plates. Anyway, maybe that will work for you.

So I'm not the only one! Since no one else mentioned it I thought it might have been some bad CC and got rid of loads. Deleting the plate doesn't work for me, just building and deleting through a room  :o

I have the same problem. I have to delete from build/ buy mode also. I just leave it the museum until I go back in for some reason

EDITED:

I made a post in the Sims 4 forums about this if you guys want to post to it. That way they know others have the same problem..

I was rounding up the requirements of my second immortal. I choose to do the mansion baron aspiration. You have to have a $350.000 worth house for that. So I was building and building to get that aspiration done. And I notcited I needed more money than I expected. I'm not entierly sure how it works. Is it because stuff gets worth less over time?
When I finished my aspiration and saved my game crashed >.< Luckily I could load another save which is a day before completions, so not much loss. Somehow this game always chooses the worst time to crash  :P

20% depreciation the moment you buy an object. So in short, yes.

I've got a save that I've had for 3 generations, and the big carpet that is new at 825 is now worth 660. So that's the 20% it lost the moment it was bought. But bathroom / kitchen / electrical appliances either continue to depreciate steadily, or they lose value every time they break. I have a fully upgraded sink worth $1, and an InvisiView TV worth exactly zero.

Question:

Is it possible to have a wedding party at a location other than the home lot in the challenge?  Personally, I love having weddings at the park in Willow Creek but would have to add to that lot.  So just wondering.

Seems a shame that we're limited to a Wedding Party on only one lot.  Oh well.  Also, it seems gay couples are also out. :)

Well Dynasties = bloodline and natural pregnancies. It's not that the team is making any kind of social statement on gays because we're not.

I'm having issues with the events.  The wedding event for my founder and her fiance bugged out.  It appeared that I was getting credit for the initial criteria because it went to silver but the items didn't tick off the list (like the get married even).  So since they didn't tick off, the new criteria never popped up so I couldn't get a gold.  Now I'm doing a birthday party for the spouse and the Have an Adult Make a Toast isn't working.  My founder had a drink and tried Make Toast about three times.  All three times the animations completed and it looked good but no completion.  I hope the dates work.  Haven't done them yet.  The only event I've managed to get to work properly so far is the House Party.

Edit:  The next day was my Founder's birthday and I hosted it on the home lot and it went off without a hitch.  But it had different criteria and the Make Toast didn't come up.

Can an aspiration be completed during the teen stage and the second when the heir is young adult/adult?
