A head's up concerning the Curator Aspiration. In the past, milestones for this aspiration have only completed if the tasks were achieved while the particular milestone was active. For example, "Collect 5 Crystals" would not complete if the Sim had collected the crystals before that milestone. In addition, "Collect 25 collectibles" on Milestone IV did not auto-complete. I have had both of those things complete after my Sim traveled. I am not sure if this is a bug or by design, but this could be an issue in Dynasty challenges, causing an inadvertent completion of an aspiration, with the potential for failing the challenge.

I'm in the game now, I'm doing some testing. I'll update in a few minutes.

When my sim traveled back home, it did autocomplete when I switched back to the Aspiration. I don't see any reports of this on the forum.  I don't see it as being a huge problem if the game is completing the aspiration and all the milestones are actually completed.

If you are using this as a Unique Aspiration for an HEIR, Please use caution as it now "auto-completing"  For example, "Collect 5 Crystals", after travel. 

Let's see what the others say on the matter.

Right, it isn't a problem as far as the Aspiration counting but it could be a problem if it autocompletes when a player wasn't expecting it to and it was a claimed aspiration of the founder or a previous heir. I just wanted players to be aware. The Curator is an aspiration I use frequently for mining points. I also liked it because it didn't auto-complete (ie. I had control over whether it completed or not). That has changed and players need to be careful so as not to fail the dynasty because of the change.

I added a line about using caution when using it as a Unique Aspiration for a Heir in my previous statement.

I agree with you, reggikko. In my Rival Dynasties Challenge as well, I always relied on The Curator stopping at "Collect 25 collectibles 0/25" since the aspiration was claimed as unique by a specific heir.
I could see myself inadvertently selecting it in another dynasty challenge (Ten Gen Townie) and failing. :(
Another aspiration that works similarly would be Painter Extraordinaire. I'm safe as long as my sim doesn't paint the 5 masterpieces after reaching Tier IV. I wonder if that's changed, too.

@oshizu, yes I deliberately choose those kinds of aspirations to get points because they've been safe. I was also wondering if other aspirations are affected. I also question if this was intentional since it only seems to complete if the Sim travels.

I was working on Curator in my Ten-Gen Dynasty, but I was not intending to complete it until my heir moved out so I could get the 2 points. It wasn't an issue, really, because you can't switch around, and I'm basically only allowing one aspiration per generation anyway, but I'd have been quite upset if this was the 6th generation of an Immortal Dynasty and I got that little surprise!

I've just had my "Collect 15 insects" in the Outdoor Enthusiast autocomplete when travelling to Granite Falls (after it was 11/15 before travelling) so guess it may be a bug affecting collecting things?

I don't see it anywhere in the rules - is it okay to start with a pet?

Just got back into playing and thought I'd try (again!) for the dynasty.

I'm really struggling with parties though. Certain goals will not complete. For example listening to music or playing games, even though household members are doing these things. Anyone got a solution?

Welcome back. :) Yeah, the party bug apparently is a recent one...

Thanks Metro. Am I within the rules if I use the cheat box to complete them or shall I just wait until the glitch is fixed?

Unfortunately, no one knows when the fix would come, so you can definitely use a cheat. Just make a note when you completed any party requirements for HOF purposes.

It's okay with me. Usually, if we don't make a rule against something, it's okay.

The official Maxis gallery doesn't have many options for people who don't have EVERYTHING installed...guess I'll have to just use lots I save to my gallery from 'hoods.  Did those items get deleted, cause I KNOW there used to be more.  I always use Newcrest because I can make it however I like with the lots, but being restricted to only Maxis really reduces your choices.

I'm happy to announce that the winner of this year's random drawing for an Amazon gift card is Playalot! Considering the many happy hours I've spent reading about Winston's adventures in her Immortal Dynasty, I feel the gift couldn't go to a better Simmer. Thanks, everyone who has completed a dynasty, and remember, anyone who completes one next year will be eligible again.

Hi, the rules have gotten me a bit confused do heirs need to max all toddler skills, get A's in school and complete a childhood aspiration inorder to become immortal or is it just one?

The only requirement for a child or teen is to attend all school days.

If you want to expand the size of an heir's collection, you can have that heir max all toddler skills, get A's and complete an aspiration. But if you don't do that, it's okay, that heir will just be limited to 8 items instead of 11.

Hiya! I'm new to the challenge so I'm just clarifying to make sure that the GeekCon Social Event counts for the requirement (just got that finished).

@december22
For playing games, direct multiple sims to play video games on their phones.
For listening to music, use the Action/Group feature and have multiple sims "Listen to [genre] music together." Make sure the speaker/stereo is on first.
For the Black and White Bash, though, I find completing the "Listen to piano music together" goal impossible 98% of the time.
Good luck with your dynasty!  ;D

Hi again. I'm not on the Challenges Team, but I'm pretty sure that "Social Events" refers only to dates, parties, and toddler play dates, but not to festivals.

Hello again! I wanted to ask if the Veterinarian skill was valid? I know the career probably isn't but I was wondering if the skill could be learned regardless (I just downloaded the expansion so I'm learning).

Sure, the Veterinarian skill is valid, as it's a 10-level skill. Pet Training, however, is not. And there's no actual Vet career. As for your earlier question -- the Festivals don't count towards your party requirement. This has to be something that you can get a gold medal for.
