@bluebelle

Sorry I misunderstood your question.

You'll need to wait for a response from a member of the Challenges Team because the rules currently don't cover the question of lot traits for community venues.

@oshizu, this was a few pages back and suggests that using lot traits off the home lot is fine - not sure if something's changed in the meantime, though.

@Whirligig

We are trying to balance it out and don't think one is better than another.
Lot Traits -- 50% skill boost to 2/3 skills.
Club -- 250% skill boost to 1 skill plus you get nifty perks like networked club (for careers) and rally the troop (for needs).

@MissZoef

Correct you can still attend festivals to boost certain skills, and can travel to lot venues to boost your skill, not a loophole.  :D  You just won't have the lot traits on your home lot, hey maybe some players don't like to travel and likes the comfort of their own home lot.

I know from own experience that I dislike travelling.  The map screen always freezes my game for a bit and it is slow to load, then while travelling I lose all my environmental buff that I set up for myself on home lot. 

@reggikko

The team is discussing Leader of the Pack aspiration, will update you soon.

Can we add lot traits to community lots? Can we join and take over other clubs?

The team discussed this and it's yes to both questions.

A ton of questions coming. I'm needing something to get me into Sims 4 and I'm hoping this is it, as I spend most of my time -playing Sims 3.

So, first question...
  • School-aged Heirs cannot miss school.

I thought this got removed?  I do see the rule about needing the aspiration and the grade both for extra museum peices got added.

How do you have kids not miss school while they are on vacation? I thought when they went to Granite Falls they auto-got off days and you couldn't send them?

Once you have your immortal eat ambrosia for the first time, can you then put a death flower or flowers in their inventory so there is no accidental deaths?

It's five gold metal parties per immortal, yes?

What's everyone's take on which is better, lot traits or club perks? I'm leaning towards lot trait, but then you can't change it, can you later change club perks (as in start a new club and get a new perk for that club?)?

Another tip I could use help with (what everyone has found most useful) is the aspirations. I know several aspirations require you to reach a milestone in a career, are there enough that I won't have to be hopping from career to career (careers and me and Sims 4 are not on friendly terms, I have only maxed out a career out a couple times in all the time of owning the game since release. I just can't seem to do well with careers)? Also, any tips on maxing out careers easily enough, or is it normal for a sim to nearly be dead at 90 days (or whatever Sims 4 is) before they max out their career? I do the requirements, I do the daily tasks, and I have them in the right mood (all needs green) but I just can't fanaggle careers that well.

Not as many questions as I thought. :D

Oh, just remembered one more. I can fill up Newcrest with EA made lots (even found on the gallery under the maxis EA ID), just not delete any lots in other worlds to change them to something else, correct?

They can go to Granite Falls on the weekend, but they won't automatically get off for vacation.

You can, but death flowers don't have the same effect in TS4.

Yes.

You can't change clubs and the club perks either. I don't know what to suggest, but you might look in the Hints and Tips thread.

The Connections reward starts your Sim at level 4 and heirs that graduate with an A in high school start at level 3 of a career, which can help with their progress. For the time being, I'd recommend avoiding the doctor career (GTW) as it's bugged.

Not as many questions as I thought. :D

Thank you so much for the answers @MarianT! :) I'll avoid the doctor career for sure (With the way EA fixes bugs, it might be bugged for a while. I think I recall the detective career is bugged, too? Something about suspect descriptions?) I'll definitely save up for that reward and keep it in mind about grades (my kids usually do well in school, no problems).

I'll check out that thread, too! Tips and tricks is exactly what I'm looking for! :D

Thanks again! :)

One more. I've read several different challenge rules here on the site over the last couple days trying to settle on a challenge to do, so I can't recall where I found this rule and if it applies here (figures I can't find it again, now)... are the emotional lamps (rewards from owning Sims 3) outlawed in this Dynasty?

I have another question, and I'll just add it to this one, since I'm already blowing up the boards with questions... I added up the rewards that are NOT potions... there are only 30, yet 4 unique rewards for 8 sims is 32. We have to use potions, too, as a unique reward? So no wiggle room there, at all?

@WriterJunkie: The emotional lamps are fine.

Potions count as a unique reward too.

Is there an immortal dynasty sharing board? I thought I'd be fun to share a bit where my founder is at and my thoughts on the challenge and whatnot (which is not an easy challenge, is it! :D ) I've looked around the boards, but I couldn't find any spot like that.

You can use the story board for challenges. Some people write in great detail; others just share what's going on in their attempt.

I know we can add microphones, easels, etc to EA lots, can we add the huge Arcade game and gamer pad thing to the Bowling Alley?

Sure, that fits the venue.

Back after a long spell from challenges.  I have looked through 40 pages but can't find the answer.  Can you create community lots for restaurants / bowling alleys etc.  Rules say Manage worlds is off limits, but I would love a restaurant to get the photo of food for my museum.  Apologies if this has been answered before.

I'm not on the Challenges Team, but on page 1 of this thread, it says:

With the addition of Newcrest, you are allowed to place "MAXIS CREATED" buildings (commercial and residential) in your dynasty.  Go into gallery, look under "My library", the official maxis created buildings/houses will be in there.  You can also find more Maxis creation under "Community", with EA Account ID = MaxisCreator_01.

I was trying to Gold a birthday party just after throwing a silver birthday party and it seems like one of my sims got stuck with a celebrate icon.  The icon keeps on coming back and it is interfering with that sim's dancing to count.  I tried resetting all my Sims at home but it didn't fix the problem.  I am going to repair the game and see if that fixes the issue but if it doesn't work can I go to a previous save? :(
