So that's your cue to come up with an excellent other type of challenge.  Right?

I see what you did there! You're challenging the challenge Man.

Yeah, I'm doubling daring you, Metro! The Immortal Dynasty rules were put up how long ago? And we haven't seen a hair of another Dynasty challenge yet! I've been patient to a fault - mainly because I am no longer a full-time Simmer and haven't touched my Origin client for a week, but I'm sure you've been cooking up the second Dynasty challenge while you were busy with all your work, right?  ;)
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.

The team is definitely going to be ironing out another event in the next few months. MarianT had a great idea for a Dynasty and I think we're running with it, so that's about all I will say at the moment.

Newcrest will not be approved for this Immortal Dynasty.  No worries, we will try to incorporate Newcrest in the next dynasty.

Sorry if I have misunderstood, but can we use Newcrest for building retail lots, spare study spaces for heirs or it's not allowed in anyway?

You can pick any empty lot in Newcrest as your retail lot, but you cannot filled up other Newcrest lots with buildings, houses, etc etc.

Starting Lot Changes:

Willow Creek -- Oakenstead (you'll need to move in to any empty lot then use your phone to move household and bulldoze lot).
Oasis Springs -- Landgraab Affluista Mansion (you'll need to move in to any empty lot then use your phone to move household, evict Landgraabs, and bulldoze lot).
Newcrest -- Twin Oracle Point

All Immortal Dynasty players need to begin their game with $10,000.   If you have more than $10000 starting funds, use money cheat to bring it down.

Press Command-Shift-C to open the cheat console
Type testingcheats on, then Return/Enter
Type Money 10000, then Return/Enter
Type testingcheats off, then Return/Enter
Press Command-Shift-C to close the cheat console

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Willow Creek and Oasis Springs still have the same starting lot, we just removed the specific empty lot you have to buy before moving.

Newcrest is added to this dynasty, while you still can't add other buildings in newcrest, you can start your dynasty there and build your retail lot there too if you wish.

Money cheat is added to the rule, this is mainly for players that want to start in Newcrest.  Since Newcrest lot is slightly smaller, your starting funds will not be the same, hence money cheat comes in to balance everyone's starting funds.  This also allows flexibility for future world with non 50X50 lot, thank you @ratchie for bringing this to our attention.  ;D

Requesting clarification on museum pieces, please.  The rules say you can have Focused paintings, from Focus skill, but also says later you can have Paintings, from Painting skill.  So if you are in a position where your Sim is pretty much always focused, and gets a whim to paint a mathematical diagram, this is different from a Sim who is an artist just painting paintings?  What about other emotion paintings?  Anyone can get a whim to paint a flirty, sad, energized, etc. etc. painting.  Are these counted as a separate group like focused paintings or just part of the general paintings group?

I'm not a mod, but I will try to answer as best as I can.  As far as I am aware, the reason that paintings (including emotional ones) are different from Mathematical diagrams is because if you look at what skill actually goes up, all the emotional paintings raise the painting skill, but the focused drawings level logic.  In fact, using the logic drawings does not count toward the emotional painting requirement of Painter Extraordinaire.  So emotional paintings are just a specialized painting, while focused drawings are a separate category because they are part of the logic skill.

Everything Shewolf13 stated is spot on. The Focused paintings derived from Logic are their own animal - all other paintings...emotional paintings or otherwise...are all lumped into the generic museum category "paintings" via the painting skill. Different emotional paintings do not get their own category.

That sounds great, except for one tiny detail.  Focused paintings actually do count towards the painter extraordinaire aspiration, unless they changed thing since I tried it.  They definitely do level logic instead of painting, though.

Hm, yeah, I was just playing a legacy family and tried to use the logic painting and it didn't count for the requirement... I may have to go test it out.

They count as an emotional painting so you can use it for painting your 3 emotionals, but the value of the logic painting is based on your logic skill, not your painting skill.  Also, they'll never be worth more than about $200 from what I've seen.

That's really odd because i tried it twice and it didn't count for me :( See, I always thought it counted too, but it hadn't the last few times I tried it,  across different files. .. hm... I'm going to have to do some investigation.

Old time lurker (and love all the stories) but completely new at posting so sorry in advance for any mistakes.

I am having a go at this immortal dynasty and my founder is one friend away from ambrosia. This question is for the veterans out there: How many days in between eating ambrosia after the first to keep your immortal alive?

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the Forum, Alarianna!

You have about 10 days, 9 if you want to play it safe. Good luck!

Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this.... I guess my dynasty file is getting quite big as now when any sim in the house changes emotions or a notification happens I have to hit pause, wait for about 3 seconds for the emotional change or whatever to happen then hit play again. If I don't all my sims just stand still with their heads bobbing, quite stuck. It even happens when during a conversation the sims get those 'plus signs' I have to pause, wait for the plus signs to happen and then I can hit play again and carry on.
If I try to play in any speed faster than 1 all my sims just get stuck and do the head bobbing. Parties are almost impossible to play at the dynasty house as there is massive lag and stuttering. This doesn't happen when I play on any other lot. I'm assuming it is because of all the items in the dynasty house, paintings, skilling items, potions, fish bowls and such.
I have cleared caches etc etc. It does not effect any of my other game files. It's making playing my dynasty quite tedious as it is very slow going because of having to pause all the time. It's not my PC specs as they are way over recommended.
Any suggestions or similar experiences?

Sorry to hear you're having problems. Aside from getting rid of excess "stuff," the only thing I can think of is to lower your graphics quality. Do you have the same problem away from the Dynasty lot? If not, and if lowering graphics doesn't work, you might ask for permission to buy a retail lot and set up your Museum there.

No problems away from the dynasty lot apart from the occasional lag during a party but nothing compared to what is going on at the home lot. I could lower the graphics quality... I'm quite reluctant to do that but it might just have to be done.  :(

Oh, that sucks =( Now I'm worried what will happen to my save file later down the line. Might end up building museums on another lot except for Kessy's.

Is it time to have a "yard sale" and clean up the basement?  Maybe getting rid of the extras might help so you don't have to lower the graphics.  I quite like the idea of a museum on a separate lot, or a U-store.  That new town would be ideal for that as there is nothing there at all.  The team did say we could build a shop there and if it's a shop we never sell from wouldn't that be ok?  It would mean we couldn't have or own any other shop but I think a museum would be cool.  Waddya say, Team?
