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.

Thank you.  I'd been checking there but guess I wasn't there long enough.

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.

Are you going to get "Go to Work"?  I'm going to start a new dynasty but I'll wait till I have my "Go to Work" and try one of those careers.  Meanwhile I'm saving my old file separately and putting my house, which I really love, in my library or maybe the gallery.  It's horribly expensive for the gallery though.

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

I know your frustration!!  This seems so much harder than it was in TS3 and I think it's mostly because of glitches coming along with updates.  When I first played TS4 I was able to max out my cooking career right away AND have a great garden. 
What?  Grannies can't play games?

The Musician career seems to be the easiest for me to get to the top level. Then Painter. Then Writer. I've made Culinary but it's a struggle. None of them in the ID Challenge though.

Max three Adult skills (photography does not qualify). These do not need to be unique.

You can level photography for fun, or for museum items, but the skill itself does not qualify to be one of the three max skills.  The team feels that it would be too easy to allow photography to count since this skill max at 5.

Made some changes:

Meals (from homestyle/gourmet/baking cooking skill)

This is for the museum, all the meals cook by the 3 different skills will be counted as one category only (Meals).

I hope this doesn't seem like a silly question but I was considering building a basement and changing my dynasties museum from an upstairs room to the underground new basement.
However I am aware that once items are in the museum they are not to be moved out.... so I was wondering if it would be ok just once to build the basement then transfer all the museum items from the immortals (founder, gen 2 heir and gen 3 heir) into the basement museum?

And if this has already been asked/answered sorry but I couldn't find anything in the thread!

@Playalot, yes that would be fine.  You have permission to move your museum to the basement.

Yes, basements are always perfect for museums, now I have to have a good think on what my 'old' museum rooms will be.

Another question. If I want to buy/make a shop... am I allowed to build/alter/edit that lot in Magnolia Promenade? It goes against dynasty rules right but how else can we own shops? Or is shop owning something that we can't do in a dynasty?

Wait, I was glad Photography is back, but it only have FIVE levels of skill now? Crikey!  :o

Guess the Cowplant Milk loses its magical youthening power when cooked into a pie. :D Also, I KNEW the Age-Away serum Scientists can invent would be banned! I predicted it when I saw that it had the same effects as the Potion of Youth. You're doing good catching everything in this new expansion. Shame EA was lazy and didn't add new aspirations or traits, like they did with most of the Sims 3 expansions(I'm playing a 4x4 right now) but I guess it's because they're getting used to the new Sims 4 mechanics. I am sure that when the supernatural expansion comes out they'll try to add some new traits and aspirations. (And yes, I was part of the survey EA e-mailed out to customers for ideas on the Sims 4 expansions so I might have influenced Get To Work's conception. ^_^)

I guess cloning Sims is also OOTQ. I'm not trying to sound rude, but what's the point of cloning anyways if you can't use any clones for the Dynasty? I'd put up a general rule saying "Cloning is banned, period." But then again if someone can give an example of cloning which doesn't fall under the above rule, I'm up to debate.

I'm not trying to be a Sour Sam but trying to quell the Grumpy Guses here who DO whine about the bans - if you don't like the rules, don't do the challenge. You can do a legacy or play 'for fun'(a term bandied about here) but don't drag everyone down. There are people who love this sort of tough challenge and I love reading about the attempts. The mods create the rules to ensure that those that DO do this challenge show a wonderful story about how they won the challenge; if we let everything be allowed, then there would be no challenge and no accomplishment for finishing. It's like the Gen-Oners of Pokemon whining about how these new mechanics in Pokemon suck and how Red and Blue were the best generation. I don't want to hear it.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled thread. ;)
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.

Not to sound like one of those whiners Etnafan was talking about, I'd like to know WHY owning a business is not considered a career.  I haven't played it enough to understand the why of it but I was the one who asked about it in a PM to Nutella.  So, Nutella, can you explain the why? 

So far I'm finding owning a business a lot of fun but definitely a lot more work than just having a go to a rabbit hole job!  Getting folks to buy is very time consuming.  I decided to open a bakery and while I made a ton of sales, only one of them was an actual bakery item.  It was interesting and fun to find all the hand painted pictures I had hanging for decor, (and for sale), sold at higher than otherwise possible prices but the goodies stayed put.  Easter Eggs did not move either.
What?  Grannies can't play games?

@EtnaFan666
Cloning sims is not out of the question, household members can be clones.

@Joria
In real life, yes retail business is a career.  However in this game, how would you determine when your retail business is max?  There is no levels associated with retail business.
