Argh, my 5 generation dynasty family have been afflicted with the save error 533 bug, which is causing it to be almost impossible to play.  :( :( :( :(  I have seen a few suggestions of how to fix; none of which has worked so far.

What can I do within the rules of the challenge to fix this?  The next suggestion is to move the family, selling all the furniture, save the lot to library, bulldoze the lot, build it again from library, and move them back in.

Is this allowed?  Any other suggestions please?

Many thanks, Tracey
@tjtemple  I got that error once and the game wouldn't let me save.  I was finally able to save at the Neighborhood menu (select "Travel...").
Then I did all the usual things....reinstall, delete game caches, delete Origin caches, CC cleaner...

Well, what works for one person doesn't always work for someone else.
Good luck!  I really hope you can save your dynasty!

It sounds like you've got a good plan of action to try. As that's what's being suggested to do when you run into this error.

Also remember to save often, and use Save As, give it a name such as S1, S2, etc. - This is your friend in the Sims games. As then you can go back to a previous save should things like this happen.

I need help!

I think I just learned the hard way that you can't play another household even if it's in another town.

I am so bummed... I wanted to play something in between my time with the Riley's that was fun. I came back today to the Riley's and everyone is outside, a new nooboo who was due to be born is already a child.

Arghhhh....... waghhhh............

Is there a way for me to recover this? Obviously I can't play any house other than my dynasty if I want to continue.

Thank you in advance,

Chickwit

Greetings!

I think I figured it out. I went to my saved files and loaded the Riley's from my last save and voila; there they are. No alien named child with the evil trait. lol

Just to clarify; should I always open my file from a previously saved file? Riley for theirs and each other game under that saved file?

Thanks so much.

I've tried to skim through this threat to look for the latest x-pac and the effects of clubs on the dynasty challenge.
Are there any restrictions on club use during the challenge?
It seems like a big accelerant to things like Gardening if you can just invite your club around the maintain your plot.
Any direction on if we can join or start clubs yet?

No restrictions on clubs for dynasties.

Yes you can join premade clubs or start your own club.

You always want separate saves/files for each game you are playing.  If you start a dynasty, save it and name it something you remember.  You can go play other stuff and do whatever you want, but when you want to continue your dynasty, load that save file and continue.

Thank you Nutella!

I'm going to have to start a new Dynasty. The Riley's though fun, Elaori my founder is due to become an elder and I'm no where near done with her 1st aspiration. My 1st heir also just missed out on her Whiz Kid aspiration and I almost 100% certain I've had the founder stay home from work a few times over her lifetime. She's also only half way to top level of her career.

I don't see this as a bad thing. This was my very first attempt and I was brand spanking new to playing Sims 4.  it's been educational and I still had fun.

So I've printed off a copy of the checklist someone made. Hopefully I'll be able to keep better track this time. Look for the Winchester Immortal Dynasty to start appearing. Here's to a successful second attempt.

One question though. I thought I read somewhere that we can't marry our sims to existing families in the sims universe. I think maybe I'm wrong on this though as no one said anything in my first attempt. I may be mixing up the different legacy rules. Can we marry anyone in town and move in whatever townies we choose? Just need to clarify.

Many thanks for your continued patience with me as I learn.

I'm not the Team but I think you were/are allowed to move in/marry just about anyone. I think the only restriction is that your spouse can't have a child with anyone before they move in and beget the heir?

Winchester? As in the rifle? Or Supernatural? If it's the latter could I please request Dean and not Sam ;-D Jensen Ackles is my <3

Oh goody, I love Dean too!  Can you believe it's been 11 years?  Love that show.

Just need to clarify.

Yes you can marry your sims to existing families, only if they do not have any previous children.  You can't move in with them, they have to move in with you to your dynasty lot.  The targeted spouse must not have any previous children.  Also sims from online gallery is banned, make sure you start your dynasty on a fresh file virgin town.

You can move in whoever you want, but you can't move them out once you move them in.  They must remain in your dynasty house and die of old age, no intentionally killing them off.  Be careful because your household can only have 8 people max, if you move in too many and they haven't died yet, then you can't produce heir.

Showing my age here, but when I read Winchester, I thought Charles Winchester from M*A*S*H*

I'm sure you'd prefer Sam or Dean to Charles, @Magpie2012 :)

Lol @Deklitch it's been so long since I saw an episode of M*A*S*H that it just didn't even register lol (plus, I was a little kiddie at the time so that could also be why) and yeah, I definitely prefer Dean lol (not Sam, while he's cute and all, he just plain annoys me)

@Nutella 11 years O_O I knew it had been ages, but so long O_O grief, now I also feel old lol

Sorry if this has been answered before, but I couldn't find an answer anywhere.

I have a school age heir who on their first day of grade school (no less!) apparently got sick. I didn't see the sick icon until after 7 am passed to let me know that school was would start in an hour. Almost immediately after, it told me to keep my sick kid home. I did the medicine right after, but it's won't give me the option to send the kid to school anymore for today.

Anything I can do? I was not aware that this would happen :(

My dynasty gen3's elderly spouse just died of over-exertion in the pool after my clicking "swim laps" twice.  He was *very happy* from a recent vow renewal, so I didn't notice the mortally exhausted buff until grim came.  It was wholly unintentional - I didn't think swimming tired out the old folks too much.  Does this count as intentional killing, or may I continue my dynasty?

@dtaymoore
If the game won't let your child go to school because of illness, that's okay.

@tjtemple
You can continue your dynasty, but in the future please refrain from sending your elderly to swimming.

I've just had a very odd bug occur in my Dynasty. Malcolm Landgraab died a natural death of old age. Putting his tombstone in a sim's inventory to take it to the designated graveyard didn't work, so I released his spirit to the Netherworld and deleted the tombstone. Shortly after, my founder's husband also died a natural death, and she took his tombstone away. When she returned to the family home, Malcolm is alive and well once again, an elder towards the end of his life  but not at the very end.

What should I do? Continue with Undead Malcolm, or return to a previous save?

@Lady Orc
The bug sounds weird.  Return to a previous save if that's not too much work for you.  I am afraid continuing with undead malcolm might caused more bugs/problems later, safer to go back to previous save.

I had something odd happen last night.

I tried to plan outfits for Erik and when I was done and tried to accept the changes. Suddenly Olivia was on the screen and I couldn’t select my prior changes. Her last name highlights in red and won’t let me change her outfits either. Any thoughts? Do I need to shorten Olivia’s name to make things work?

One other comment; I'm pretty sure I'll 100% refrain from CC! Seems there are lots of bugs and those scare the bejeesus out of me.

@Magpie2012 – Winchester is mostly from Supernatural however the character is a girl who isn’t at all Supernatural. Samantha Winchester is my founder and it just happens that Samantha is my favorite name and often a main character in my NaNoWriMo novels. That being said I’m hoping my heir is a boy. Will need to search if we can influence gender still.

@Nutella – I’m so glad you included the part about not being able to have an heir from someone who already has a child. Sigh… I had so much hope for Eric Lewis and Sam’s future babies. Guess I’ll be schmoozing that blonde; Travis Scott. Sam became quick friends with Dennis Kim so I moved that family in. I’m really enjoying Dennis and Vivien from that family group. Bonus Dennis has gardening skill. Thought I’d have her make an heir with Eric. Phew…………….  I didn’t really want her as a homewrecker. Sam’s almost an adult and well, this heir needs to happen. Travis was my second choice so “upgrade” LOL…

@Lady Orc – YIKES! Guess I’ll keep my elders out of the pool. Glad you were able to continue your Legacy. ---Also, Lady Orc do you play WoW?

@dtaymoore – Oh boy. Sickness in Sims 4 seems to more realistic than from prior versions. I’m also glad you are able to continue your Legacy.


Carry on my Wayward Simmers (lol)....

Not sure about the last name in red problem, did you try shortening her last name to see if it works?

Yes there is a way to influence gender.  Strawberries and pop music -- girls, carrots and alternative music -- boys.  Eat these and listen to music while your sim is pregnant.

Happy to say that the second time around both Malcolm and the other elders in the house who were scheduled for demise all died properly, punctually and without bugs. :) Also, very glad that hint about getting boys or girls was posted, since I wasn't aware of it. Now I suspect I know why I've kept getting girls, since the pop music channel is the one I use the most.

@Chickwit  yes, I do.

Nutella - I didn't try to shorten it yet. I was afraid of doing anything that might make my 2nd Dynasty defunct.
So I'll try shortening her name tonight.

Thank you for the gender influencing tips!  ;D
