But wouldn't that be a fail? There are 6 immortals in the house, 7th can't have a child until their sibling dies and by that time 7th gen also risks dying?

@Nettlejuice
Sorry for being unclear--I didn't mean to cause confusion about the 6th generation heir question. I just meant to say that if there's just one spot left but someone dies before childbirth, leaving two spots open, the mother may give birth to twins.
in my Immortal Dynasty, this happened to my third-generation heir who gave birth to twins. That didn't destroy my dynasty but made things harder because I no longer could add that pollinator I was anticipating.

I would like to think that if twins were born to gen 6 because of accidental death the challenge team may be able to help if however a player didn't plan for potential situations then it would be a fail.

The obvious solution to me is to have an elder move in if anyone dies while gen 6 is pregnant.

I apologize if this has been asked and answered before, but are immortals allowed to have a death flower in their inventory after they have earned ambrosia?

What does it do when it's in their inventory?

I think I might have failed then as my gardeners have death flowers in their inventory until I remember to put them into storage it could easily be several days if I forget. I don't recall seeing the rule about no death flowers in inventory in the rules.

Death flowers in inventory used to save a sims life however it does not work anymore in Sims 4 because a dying Sim cannot plead for their own life last time I tried.  Someone else has to do it and I've never had someone autonomously plead with Grim.

@ratchie
No you did not fail.  Sorry my mistake, I forgot that it works differently in sims 4.

@Jamie
Yes can keep death flower in inventory, however remember not to have anyone plead with grim when he comes knocking on your door.

@Ricalynn
Thank you for reminding me of how death works in sims 4.

Thanks for the quick reply Nutella I have never had anyone plead with Grim in the Sims 4 and wasn't sure how it worked. I tend to get things all muddled up together and often think I can do things in the Sims 4 because I did them in the Sims 3.

My Dynasty had a family tragedy today. Poor Noa died at her wedding. The spouse of gen. 3. She just gave birth to her son (heir for gen 4) so they decided to get married. All the excitement was too much for her and she got hysterical with laughter. The poor thing tried to save herself by calming herself down in the mirror, but with no succes. The succesful and amazing wedding had a turn for the worse when she died of laughter.
At least she gave them a son to fulfill the Dynasty. (She died way too joung).

Awww !  Sorry to hear that happened but just think of it is as a good backstory for Gen 4 finding his true love and holding onto her tight.. or never getting married at all!  And you definitely have room in the house for other things later.

I recently spent 8 IDC generations in terror of one of my Sims dying of hysteria! It happened to one of my heirs in an early attempt   From then on as soon as anyone gets very playful they get sent straight off to a mirror to calm themselves!  RIP Noa.

@Ricalynn it sure does!

@tjtemple aw that sucks, I always try to keep a close eye on their emotions as well.

@Nettlejuice yeah I feel a bit sad for her not being around when her son grows up. I'm considering brining her back. Too bad I did not write a book of life for her.

@MissZoef Is it a non-HoF entry?

It is a HoF entry. I thought you could use it on non immortals  (although I am not sure how it works though, I haven't used it yet). I thought you could bring a dead sim back to life with it, is that right?

You can use the book to fulfill sim's needs right? I saw that somewhere in the posts along the way. Other than that I have no idea how it works, so maybe it's good I didn't write one for her :-)

@MissZoef The Book of life can be used like a moodlet manager (which is allowed ) and it can be used to summon a ghost.  However if you bring that person back to life, that is against the rules because it's considered elongating their lifespan.  If a ghost reads their own book of life then they can resurrect themselves which you don't want either.  It's like them eating ambrosia.

If a person is dead, they need to stay dead to be considered for HoF.

In the Rules Section:

Household members cannot complete the Bodybuilder Aspiration, use Potions of Youth, Essence of Life (from cowplant), Book of Life (from writing skill), Plead with the Grim Reaper to save a dying sim, use Age-Away Serum, wish for Youthful Vigor from the wishing well, or any other methods of extending life.

In the FAQ Section:

Can I use book of life to cure negative moodlets?  Can I use book of life for museum contribution?
-- Yes to both.  You cannot use book of life to extend life, but you can use book of life to cure negative moodlets and you can write book of life and contribute it to the museum for requirement.

So sorry, @MissZoef! I had a Sim die of embarrassment after being turned down for a proposal, so I know how it feels.

@Ricalynn thank you for the clarification, good thing I haven't used it yet :) (and won't!) I'm afraid she will stay dead then.

@Nutella Thank you for pointing out the rules. Sometimes I get a little confused, luckily I haven't made a mistake (yet) with this Dynasty :)

@MarianT Oh that's so sad, I hope it wasn't a dynasty member!

I've been working on my next Generation and the plan was to have her use harvestables as her museum item possibly but I've noticed that some of my items seem to keep increasing their value to the point of random numbers at perfect.  I thought I read somewhere this was a glitch but if I harvest and this happens and I get apples that are worth §2000 - can I use those as my museum items?  Even though the price is glitched?

It is a glitch and EA still hasn't fix it yet, doubt they will.  It's fine, you can use those as your museum items.

Sorry if this has been answered already, but is it ok for good friends / best friend to be deceased at time of ambrosia, so long as the relatio ship in the panel is still registering?

I'm not the challenge team and they could correct me but as far as I know friends still have to be alive at the time of ambrosia, that's why it's one of the harder requirements.

Found my own answer, time to start over -_-



Still at the beginning stage of my IDC, (multiple crashes of course, I think it's a cooling issue), but since I've married Don Lothario and moved his entire household in, I was wondering if my founder has to be the one to do all the acquiring for museum items?  Can the household pitch in by doing anything like dig a treasure and give it to her, or does she have to do it all for the items?
Spamming questions here (sorry for that), it's the first time I really try a dynasty challenge. I noticed a few of my good friends of my list have died. They still are listed as good friends in the friends overview. Am I allowed to still count them for my list of do I have to find some new ones?
Dead friends = need to find new ones.
