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.

I agree with metro. Good luck

Hello again challenge team!  I looked through the rules, and the last few pages of the topic and don't see a ruling on this, so I'm going to ask:

Is buying Deathflowers and Angelfish from the magical stores banned?  I see that you can't clone them (but it specifies with the cloning machine, that should be updated) but there's no rule saying that the flowers and fish NEED to be fished/harvested naturally.

Deathflowers have to be grown in so if you buy one, you have to plant it. To just go out an purchase the two items needed for ambrosia makes it too easy.  The same with the fish, they have to be caught by fishing.

ADDED:

Added this question to the FAQ Section:

Can I purchase Angelfish and Deathflowers for Ambrosia?
-- Yes and No ---- No, Angelfish must be caught via fishing by your sim. Yes, Deathflower can be purchased but it must be planted as a seed and grown in the garden.

Apologies to the others for making a challenge harder, but:  I feel it might be better to ban buying either of them outright, as most of the challenge in obtaining a deathflower is the plant splicing you have to do to obtain it.  Allowing people to buy and plant it from realms of magic will remove most/all of that process.

When Seasons came out, the overhaul on gardening really messed grafting up. Now by design, when grafting, you might get the new fruit/flower or you might one of the same that was used to graft. So if the player wants to spend the money trying to acquire the deathfower/seed from a pack then plant it, it still to be home grown.

Makes sense, I guess I hadn't put enough time into gardening of late to know that it's been changed that drastically.  Thanks for the clarification on the ruling!

I do have a few questions regarding building. The rules state "You may edit community lots to add or rearrange objects such as microphones, easels, etc. You may also add on club hangouts. You still may not bulldoze community lots." How extensive can I edit? Can I change the lot to the point that it doesn't resemble the original building? Can I change one lot type to another, like lounge to nightclub? Can I edit non-dynasty residential lots to add missing items such as toilets or change their aesthetic? Can I build some lots from scratch to fill in the empty lots or download my own creations?

Mod question. Can I use this mod that I got from Carl's YouTube video: Mod to Stop Automatic Spellcaster Occult Townies:  https://www.patreon.com/user/posts?u=23229453?

Ok. I was hoping it would get approved since I got it from Carl and it fixed the townies from turning into Spellcaster bug. I guess I’ll wait for EA to fix it or disable ROM.

@Kishori It's a valid clarification to ask for but Carl doesn't call the dynasty shots like we do. :P
