Hi Joria! *waves
My sim household couldn't cook after the patch either. Whenever I sent my sim to bake a cake, she'd just wave her hand with a red x in her thought bubble.
After I cursed and pulled out some hair, I replaced their fridge & stove. Now she can bake cake again.

Temporary workaround: You could visit a restaurant and order a cake, then stash the cake in your inventory and proceed to your party venue.
This won't work, of course, if your sims get a party task to bake a cake....
Best wishes.

Thanks oshizu, I have been searching the net and trying to find if someone else has reported this, but I can't find anything. And I don't have this problem in game. But I am not giving up, I will keep looking for an answer.

Hmmm, a new fridge and stove. Well, she just maxed the cooking aspiration so a fridge she has.  I'll try that.

On another note, I had a fairly recent backup file and decided to try that file and voila, my Sims could bake.  Not sure why but now I don't know whether to stick with the back up or go with the later version.  Of course, in the back up my founder has not yet maxed her aspiration so that could be a reason to go with the newer file.  Or maybe the EA genie has simply fixed the baking problem?  Will have to try to new file, sans new appliances, to see.

EDIT  Tried the newest, broken, file.  No EA genie's had appeared, things were broken yet as far as baking was concerned.  Tried with new appliances and this was a no go either.  I think this file is corrupted somehow so will go with the earlier, save file where you can still cook cakes.  Deleting the newer, broken, file.

If a child completes an Emotional Whim,  does it count towards their requirements as an adult?  For instance, Cried it Out for being sad, or such like?

No, the whims have been from the when they become YA. That is when they start their adult requirements.

I'm a bit confused by this because nothing that I can see in the rules says they must be YA before working on their requirements. They can contribute kid's activity table drawings as museum pieces (which they obviously have to draw when they are still children) and can complete aspirations as teens. They can also max skills and complete their museum collections as teens and I know prior players have started working on parties when the heir is a teen.

They are only requiring the whims to be completed from YA, not the rest of the requirements.

Actually, the whims can be completed at any age.

I'm almost certain that the Potion of Immortality will be banned for this challenge when Realm of Magic comes out.  ;D

Yep. There would not be much point in making Ambrosia if we did not ban it.

Ream Of Magic "ROM" Comes out on Tuesday 9/10/19.

Please hold off any questions you may have for the team. We have to have time to go thru everything, test, and make decisions. There is ALOT of information coming from this pack, so please give us the time we need to make decisions.

Thank you.

 I would not be surprised if the Magic Realm is banned for this dynasty as well as spellcasters in general. Glimmerbrook is not compatible with this Dynasty as it only has four lots, one is a community lot and the only empty lot is a tiny 30x20 and the others are  probably too small. Because Glimmerbrook is probably not a good place to do this Dynasty and the Magic Realm will probably be banned, I wouldn't be angry if this was the first pack that gets banned for the Dynasty and you have to disable it to play the challenge for the Hall of Fame, there is so much EZPZ stuff that makes the challenge mindless it's stupid:

* Death Flowers and Angelfish can be purchased from the Caster's Ally. Sure, it might not always be there, but if you are a rich Dynasty founder, you will grab 999 Death Flowers if you have the chance!
* Certain things(Familiars, Potion of Potent Resurrection) protect from a fatal death, so heirs no longer need to hide in bunkers and do nothing.
* Non-spellcaster heir dead from fire? Just cast Necrocall and Dedeathify, you're safe!

I agree with Carl's video, EA needs to do some nerfs to this pack or we need to force Dynasty challengers to install nerf mods. This may be the first challenge which not only allows nerf mods, it demands them!

Also, has anyone had issues with the game crashing randomly? I have, which cost me a Dynasty. I think that Sims 4 is getting too bloated with content. Might give up on Sims 4 and pretend it never existed, might go back to Sims 3 or just stop Simming in general and go back to Pokemon. I hate to be depressed but it was inevitable that EA Maxis has made Sims 4 jump the shark just for a cash grab and not carefully checking their content. I mean, my game started glitching a lot. I think my game crashed because I teleported into the Secret Lab in Strangerville. :(

Not necessarily true, please don't just assume things about a pack before we have had a chance to fully explore and examine all aspects of the packs.

We already have a rule on needing to obtain all ambrosia ingredients through fishing/gardening/satisfaction points and banning resurrection through other means. I'm not saying it shouldn't be nerfed in a patch (I'm not a Maxis dev after all) but dynasty-breakers are nothing new.

@sdhoey

You might want to update this section:

Quote
Whichever world you end up choosing your choice is permanent — no moving after you set foot on your dynasty lot. Prebuilt houses or downloaded lots from someone else are not allowed. You must take care of all building and expansion yourself. Opting for the “no build/outdoors” route is also fine.  With the addition of Newcrest, you are allowed to place "MAXIS CREATED" buildings (commercial and residential) in your dynasty.  Go into the 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.

MaxisCreator_01 is now just Maxis on the gallery.

Okay, glad to see this list. Everything I predicted was banned accordingly. Also, you mispelled "Necrocall."

Hello challenge team!  I'm looking to (finally) finish my Immortal Dynasty.  I'd like to get a one time exception to move to a fresh lot, in one of the newer worlds.  My game was created when only the base game was out, and I believe that being able to get onto a new lot would help a lot with the lag and glitches that I've been experiencing.  Obviously, I would use one of the approved lots. 

To clarify, I'm asking for this so I will still be eligible for the Hall of Fame once the Dynasty completed.

I have no problem with this. Especially since you're experiencing technical issues.
