I have always wondered if sims actually would repair something on their own free will.  That has never happened to me in any sims game I have ever played.  It would be especially difficult since it seems like in sims 3, a sim wouldn't die unless they were already singed.  Then in the sims 4, they may die if they are dazed.  In sims 2, their needs would have to be really low.

Yeah, I don't think I have ever seen or heard of a Sim that autonomously repaired an appliance. I don't think its possible for that type of death to be "legal" for the challenge, because the "Repair" action is (presumably) always player-directed.

Actually, I think I had a handy sim repair a broken stereo once autonomously in the Sims 3 but it happened once in years. By the way, he ended up dead  :(

@Cristina Are you sure that it was a handy sim?  Handy sims are immune to electrocution.

Oh I'm so sorry, you're right, I just assumed because he was in the military, no his wife was handy. But yeah he did it himself (without the handy trait). It was the first time it happened without me instructing them to do so.

Hello everyone!

Terribly sorry if this has already been answered, but how much money are we supposed to have in the beginning? I followed the directions to get my big lot and still have 10k.

That seems like way too much! Did I miss something? Maybe I just didn't read carefully enough... ???

@alisonclaire
10K is correct.  It is a lot more money than the immortal dynasty in sims 3, boss was feeling generous while writing up this challenge.

Just wondering now that the ability to paint portraits has returned via the free update today, if the rules for the ID will change to reflect this?

The decision we came up with is yes, you can use cheat to change the last name of the dynasty spouse, but you must do it as soon as possible. 

For those of you that already moved in their spouses, you have permission to change their last name now.  For future dynasty players, please change the spouse name as soon as they move in, no waiting.  The using cheat to change last name is of course optional, you do not have to do it if you don't want to.

March 26th, 2015 New Patch -- You can now go into Create A Sim and change the name of any of your Sims.

Before this new patch, we allow players to use cheat to change the last name of dynasty spouse.  After today's patch, the cheat is no longer needed or allowed.

Will we be able to use the new eggs as museum pieces?  There are 10 different designs or you can collect multiples of any design.
What?  Grannies can't play games?

There will be no new requirements added to the rules.  We will not be adding portraits as a requirement by itself, however you can paint portraits and add them to museum (under paintings category).

Discussing this right now.  One thing everyone needs to consider is that these eggs are only available in April, I am not sure if the eggs collected will vanish when May rolls around.

Is there a thread that discusses strategy ideas? Because I have been unable to make it past my first generation. I am so sim-remedial!!  :P

There is a hints and tips page:  http://www.carls-sims-4-guide.com/forum/index.php/topic,22197.0.html

You can also post on this thread what problems you are having that you can't make it past your first generation, plenty of players will be happy to help you.

I consider myself dynasty challenged!  lol  After 5 years, (or maybe it's more), with Carl's forum I've yet to succeed at a dynasty.  Still only level 1 at the moment but don't play that often.  The tips page does help a lot.

FYI:  Colored eggs can be harvested along with fruits and veggies.  When you click on a tree or veg you wind up with both the fruit AND an egg.  Not every time though.

Apologies for double post.  Get to Work will bring new collectibles with it.  Will these be allowed or banned seeing as how not everyone will get this expansion?  I'm hoping allowed.

Can't answer your question at this moment, but I will test all the new stuff as soon as expansion release and update everyone on the changes.

Oh thank goodness we don't have to do the whole "baby to elder" painting thing again! I came on here as soon as I heard on the Curtis Paradis show about the new portrait painting option in the update.
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.

Ok!  THAT's IT!  Once again, 4th try, and my stupid founder can't get to the top of her career and is about to die.  I am so frustrated with this challenge it's unbelievable.  (stomps foot and throws hissy fit)

Ok, better.  Thanks for letting me vent.  I really wish I knew what I am doing wrong, besides constantly choosing the culinary career.  It's not like I haven't read the guides or the tips.  She should have maxed her career long before this.   I rather like this family so it's time for me to cheat and keep everyone alive with youth potion and start a new file for a dynasty.  Time to pick a different career path and see if it's the career or just me.

To add to the frustration, while I can find bugs, I seldom can get my Sim to them to collect them before they disappear and I haven't been able to find a cherry tree anywhere.  No, not even where Carl shows one in the guide.

There's a cherry tree on the property of the Landgraabs.  Go camp out there for a bit.  There's one down the cliff and there's another toward the ledge on the back of the property.

I'm very sorry to hear that the Culinary career is causing you so much trouble, Joria. I was about to boot up The Sims 4 today and try another Immortal Dynasty attempt too.  :'(

Maybe I'll just play for fun, not do a challenge, just to see if any of my Sims can top a career. Anyways, I don't know much about the bugs since I don't have Outdoor Retreat, but I'm sure there are some cherry trees in the park of Oasis Springs. You'll never find a cherry tree in Willow Creek - it's all apples and pears over there.

Joria, I am stuck on generation 1!! I can EITHER level up the career OR complete the friends/party requirement. But I can't seem to do both. Grrrrrr
