Put that plate on a surface, go into buy mode (F2) -- grab that plate as if you were selling it, you shall see the price of the plate.

The value of the museum does not matter, its personal preference.

Thank you for the quick and clear answer. As for museum value, if aiming for a high museum value is a matter of personal preference, then I'll just focus on trying to finish.   :)

I have noticed that heirs - every generation but the founder - in most Immortal Dynasties is being push to complete child aspirations and get excellent grades but I did not see anything in the rules stating that each Immortal-to-be past the first must complete a child aspiration and get As in school. Is this a mistake in the rules or what? I am going to do a speed dynasty for fun and need to know if the child aspirations or grades in school count. I know heirs cannot skip school or get excuse notes written but what about this other stuff?

I think that people are doing it because they figure they might as well, since you can't age them up early anyway. Child aspirations and good grades can help them later in life. Also, since you can't age them up early, I'm not sure how speedy a speed dynasty would be, but you can always try to complete it as fast as you can.

That is because they want to have "ten" museum items instead of eight.  It is not necessary for child to get "A" or complete aspiration, but you can't age them up early anyways, so my as well give them something to do for the 12+ days while waiting to become teen.

From the rule section:
**Players can increase the value of their Immortal Family Museum by having an heir contribute two additional museum items (for a total of 10 of a given type) if that heir completes a Childhood Aspiration and gets an A in school (as a Child and a Teen).

On parties, somewhere I read you could have the same party type, for instance a birthday, at more than one location and you could count both parties as valid types since they were at different places.  Is this accurate?  I tried looking up where I saw it but couldn't find.  So, if I go on a date to a pub and have a date at my house and both are gold medal would they both count as two of the required parties?

@Joria I believe it's called party at a friend's house in the rules section.

@Joria

If you run out of parties type, then yes you can recycle the parties at different location and count them.  I mean, you can't use date in five different locations as your requirement, because you still have other options available.

Found on page 30 (2nd post)

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.

If you only have sims 4 base game, you could.  You don't have black & white and costume party, left with exactly 5 types -- date, house, birthday, dinner, wedding.  If wedding fails, you can't redo wedding.  We didn't want players to have to divorce and redo wedding, so locations were introduced.

Okay, didn't see that - it's totally optional, right? I mean, I would make the kids complete a child aspiration and my Sim kids always get excellent grades in school, but at least I'm glad it's not an official rule, just something to increase the value of the museum(which I don't care to do - I'm not a slavedriver and I prefer to do my excellent value runs with Platinum PS3 trophies, not Sims, so I give them motive cheats to keep them happy and thus I can't ever do a legit Dynasty, so I prefer not to stress over PERFECT VALUE items).

Also, when I said speed dynasty, I was talking about what people had been doing in the Sims 3 Immortal Dynasty to get all the stuff done early so you can play with the game minimized while waiting for the birthdays and killing time out of boredom. I wasn't talking about aging anyone early!  ::)

Another thing: About the parties, I asked that same question Joria asked because I was concerned due to the 7th and 8th Immortals unable to have a wedding party gold medal because they are forced to be celibate(unwed for you laymen) due to the house restriction.

Go to Build or Buy mode. Then pick up the dish and the value will be shown in the screen.

Yes, "A" grade in school and child aspiration is absolutely optional.

When you mention celibate (unwed), one thing I have to point out, lots of people seems to missed this: Your couples do not have to be married.  The dynasty requirement is only for parents to live in the same dynasty house (except for the last generation), says nothing about must be married.

@ilovethesims They need to eat Ambrosia when their age bar is almost full, you can do it when you get the notice for them to get their affairs into order ie the impending death notice.

I understand this but even so, you still can't have a wedding party for Gen 7 or 8. And unless you don't like wedding parties, I think it would be something that players would probably do - I mean, you've already wooed the baby daddy in a gold date and he's going to be living with you, why not add a gold wedding and knock out another medal? I'm not saying that's it mandatory to get married, but I usually have the mindset of gold medal date, gold medal wedding. And since Generation 7 can't have the baby while the other parent is living with them, wouldn't have be hypocrisy for the rule? Just stating.

There, I've exhausted every argument. I'll put this subject to bed now.

You can still get married, have the wedding party and go for a gold medal. You just don't move the new partner in when the option comes up.

Is that a legal? I may try it but I have a long way to go to reach that point and new content and such could possibly mean more party options though.

Yes this is legal for your 7th generation.  While all the previous generation needs to have parents that live in the dynasty house, the 7th generation don't have room.  You can get marry, just don't move in your spouse; that empty spot in your dynasty house needs to be for your baby, the last heir.

Keeping immortal sims alive by ambrosia seems a little expensive.

Can I just let them die and then have another sim plead for their lives with a death flower?

Thanks.

Sorry the answer is no.  The whole point of the dynasty challenge is the rule where elder must be kept alive via ambrosia.

I just had a blue screen crash and since then every time I go to change my alien disguise the whole family turn up as options to change... which is kinda like when you use the cas.fulleditmode cheat. Only I have not used this (obviously as it's against rules). The crash happened when I was in the middle of changing one of my aliens disguise (which you do just by clicking on the alien).
Can I delete this file and go back to an earlier save which is about one sim day back from this current save?

*edited: I just noticed that in this file when I visit a neighbour their house is open to me and I don't have to knock on any doors! Ugh, something's gone wrong with it for sure.  :( And when I travel all my sims moodlets all drop off which they shouldn't as most of them aren't environmentally linked.
