Transforming is fine, since you don't enter build/buy mode while using the gun.

Thank you, Nutella.  Obviously I hadn't tried it. :D

dethdukk that ray gun is marvelous but be warned, it can cause fires.  It also can make you very wealthy.  Those Easter eggs transform quite nicely and you can transform items more than once, often increasing their value accordingly.

Just thought I would ask if the locking doors mod is allowed until EA adds it into the game?

The SimRay - Sims 4's answer to the Witch's Conversion Spell in Sims 3!  ;D

I did get a couple of Easter eggs in one file while playing my Time Lord challenge. They are very pretty.
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.

@Nettlejuice
The mod provides an advantage to gameplay, the team has decided that this lock door mod is "not" allowed, sorry.

I never thought of it like that but you are absolutely right!  One of the things I got while transforming was an orchid.  No need to graft!  I got a cowplant seed also.

You can get Easter eggs pretty much every time you dig or harvest so I've not only completed the collection multiple times but am getting fairly wealthy, (lacking of time to be REALLY wealthy), just by transforming.  The scientist career not only is moving up the success ladder rapidly and supplying me with collectibles but is also giving me the Easter eggs for transforming.  Love that ability.

I have been playing the challenge for two and a half months now. So far these have been my experiences:

1) To get a lot more money and buy better essential home objects that would not cause the uncomfortable moodlet, I tried moving in either the Landgraabs or the Calientes.
2) Since I moved in a lot of people, I had to wait a while before producing children. I usually start at adult.
3) I observed some of my teens can't get past the current grade even if I've done all the requirements (competed homework, extra credit and go to school focused).
4) I missed the part on the instructions regarding the BFFs: One heir's BFF must not be the BFF or Good Friend of another heir.
5) Having someone in the household with Handiness, Mixology, and Cooking/Gourmet Cooking skills at high levels can give a lot of Happy boosters to the required emotion. Upgrades such as clean coat for bathtubs, pulsating jets for the really nice bathtubs, shower upgrades, auto soap dispenser for faucets etc. sometimes give Happy boosters. Mixology drinks such as Prose and Pop, Sunset Valley, and Sour Punch give strong Happy emotions, sometimes even +4 if your sim is a Foodie. Baked Alaska (Gourmet Cooking level 10) can give +4 mood if your sim is a Foodie.

Really bummed about the BFF mistake. Oh well.

Sorry to hear about the BFF mistake.  Sucks when you get along so far, (how far did you get?), and find you've made a simple mistake.  Been there, done that, hate it.  I keep trying though.

I got up to the third generation (they were already teens), when I reread the rules and found it out.

I am so sorry.   Feeling bad for myself as well.  Everything moving right along and me so hyper focused I forgot to save.  Yep.  Game crashed.

My founder is pregnant with his second nooboo from abduction. He has no spouse nor natural children (of course) so just checking that it IS within the rules to keep this alien nooboo if I want to and still be able to go on, find a spouse and make an heir etc as normal?

Amended:

The firstborn child through natural pregnancy of any generation is the targeted Immortal. In the event a pregnancy results in twins or triplets, then the first named child is the next Immortal.

Alien abduction borned children are not ban, you can keep as household members or send back to home world, it is your choice.

Can you place and use any of the Science items created by your Scientist on any other lot other than work and home lot?  In particular the Satellite dish which, when used as "hive mind", can transform the moods of everyone on the lot.  For instance, you're at a park and you hive mind angry, or happy, or any of them.  The other day I was just not able to get my Sim to be friendly with others as they kept getting offended or angry.  Had I used hive mind I could have turned that situation around.

Yes you can.  From my experience, all the science items created can be put in personal inventory, hence you can pull it out and drop it at any lot without having to go into build/buy mode.

There are half made serums on the ground at the scientists lot in my dynasty. One of which is right in the way and my sim can not use a piece of equipment because of it. These serums are from the other non-controlled co-workers there. I had assumed that the serums would be cleaned-up over night or as my controlled sim travelled home and back etc but they haven't been. I have also saved/exited/reloaded etc. Still there.

Can I use build/buy to delete these half made serums or is there some other way or getting rid of them that I haven't thought about? Obviously my sim can not 'pick them up' or interact in them any way that I have found!

Ok. Done. So I left the ones not in the way and deleted the one in front of the inventor robot thingy (can't remember it's name). Thanks.  :)

I'd like a clarification as there's been a lot of confusion lately with the new pack: 

1)  Aliens are allowed for spouses, and a naturally born baby from that union would be an heir, correct?
As in, I have a Male human Heir, he woohoos with a Female alien, she gives birth to a nooboo, that nooboo is the targeted Heir?

2)  Would a nooboo born from a union between a male sim and male alien be considered "natural pregnancy" and therefore an Heir?

3)  If the gay natural pregnancy is okay, would it then be okay to leave your 7th gen as a male and do try for baby with a male alien instead of cheating to a female? (I note that this may result in the alien getting pregnant instead and would have to be tested if it's allowed)

Edits:  added more questions and clarified

Edit:  last 2 questions are invalid as it's not a possible thing (my apologies, test before assuming!)

Yes.  The aliens that you can invite into your home to become a spouse are allowed, the baby from that union would be an heir.  The abducted alien UFO spaceship where you don't get to invite them into your home, those baby from that union would not be an heir.

As in, I have a Male human Heir, he woohoos with a Female alien, she gives birth to a nooboo, that nooboo is the targeted Heir?

Yes, the nooboo is the targeted heir -- provided the female alien is living in your household.

2)  Would a nooboo born from a union between a male sim and male alien be considered "natural pregnancy" and therefore an Heir?

You can get pregnant from male sim + male alien?  I didn't know that.  I have to check with the team on the male/male pregnancy.

3)  If the gay natural pregnancy is okay, would it then be okay to leave your 7th gen as a male and do try for baby with a male alien instead of cheating to a female? (I note that this may result in the alien getting pregnant instead and would have to be tested if it's allowed)

I have to check with the team on this too, will get back to you with answers as soon as I can.

@Nutella - I'm a derp, sorry haha.  I totally made an assumption that it was possible based off of the abduction thing...  I just tested it in a game, there's no try for baby available.  My apologies, disregard the second two questions.

Thanks though, for the quick answer to the first question.
