I'm thinking about starting another one of those since the release of GF and was wondering if gaining fame levels are worthy of points and if any fame perks  are not allowed, and also if there is player choice of weather or not to play with fame

Good questions all, but we haven't done much with Get Famous yet. I'm going to say that you can certainly chose not to play with fame if you want. As for the rest, give us a couple of days to discuss it.

Regarding fame:

If you complete one column of fame perks, that's worth 2 points. You're allowed a one-time use of the quirk removal potion. Whether you disable fame is up to you; ditto for choosing to have a Sim become famous.

With alot of updates and new packs comming to this game, we all try to keep the dynasties up to date too.

So its now time for a new round of update the dynasty spreadsheets.
I plan to have them updated by latest 13th January

So if you see something missing in a dynasty spreadsheet, or something not working. Or in general an idea to make them better or easier to use.
Then please PM me.

Thanks for all that want to help.

hello, i have two questions about the collections!
  • Can one sim use multiple types of item (ie 3 frogs 4 snowglobes 3 mysims trophies), or are the collections of a single item type (ie 10 frogs of all the same pattern or of a mix of patterns)
  • Regarding the 'unique' aspect - not the same type of item or not the same exact item? ie if heir 1 uses frogs/snowglobes no one else can, or if heir 1 uses leaf frogs no one else can use leaf frogs but any other frogs are okay
✨🐸✨

To answer #1 -- your collection would be all frogs or all snow globes, but they don't all have to be the same frog or snow globe. The frogs could be a mix -- leaf, dirt, etc., whatever your Sim comes up with, and there can be duplicates within the collection.

As for #2, once your founder has completed a collection, that's not allowed for the heirs. They can still collect frogs and sell them, but their unique collections have to be of some other item.

hello again! i have been making Attempts, and have another question -
are we allowed to select non-heir/founder sims to check their motives, aspiration etc. so long as we don't tell them to do anything, or we can't select them at all outside of the free days?

edit: Oh, also, if my sim joins a premade club can i take over that club from the current leader?

Yes, you can check on non-controlled Sims, and also take over a club.

May I just check something. We cannot count cooking or handiness for designated skills but can we still get points for maxing them? I've suddenly had a panic and I really want to finish this one successfully after so many tries.

Yes, you can still get the 2 points for maxing cooking and handiness.

phew, thanks Marian.

I'm on attempt eight I think and am doing pretty well so worried about accidentally breaking the rules (even though I should be confident in knowing them after all this time).

about carrying over points.

We can carry over those from something that earns more than one point e.g. someone maxes a skill when at 9 points to take it to 11.
Also it was mentioned that they're carried over when one gain also means another e.g. you gain two points for maxing a skill which also completes an aspiration

What about when two point gaining things happen at the same time for different people? E.g two people returning from work/ school with promotions at the same time when at 9 points. Do we just count the first and lose the second? Sorry if this has been mentioned already, I may have missed it.

No, you can count both of them.

I did it!!! I've completed a dynasty at last  :D

I've updated my avatar which was a favourite character from a Sims 3 Dynasty (Darla the vampire from a failed lifestates dynasty) to my favourite from this one; Valie, a criminal rocket builder from gen four.

Now I just need to remember where and how to upload the photo of gen 10 as proof as I can't find my account info to whatever platform I used in the past.

I'm sorry to bother you. I've started this challenge yesterday, I'm playing with Candy Behr as my founder. I had her and her sister Yuki move in with Joaquin Le Chien (Candy's spouse) and Sergio Romeo. I still need 1 point for my first free day (if none of my uncontrollable roommates makes me lose some other points). Since my game crashed, I thought I could start filling my spreadsheet, but when I enter the "household funds at move in" - which, by the way, is 91748 simoleons - I get -6 points in the "household funds increased by 30.000" section. I know I had read something similar somewhere, but I cannot find it anymore. What should I do?

I don't use spreadsheets myself, so can't tell you how to fix that. Can you just change the -6 to 0?

I tried, but if I change it to 0 the formula for that section gets canceled. I use to write everything down on paper, so I don't really care about it but I was wondering if there was something I could do to fix it and use it correctly.

You've probably found the answer already Ronnie but the way to avoid minus points in the spreadsheet is to add the current funds as the same as the starting funds - you shouldn't have zero here as the objective is to improve on the number you started with. The same principle goes for starting and running total of satisfaction points. You can't lose points so even if you spend everything don't reduce it below the starting number.

One thing you should be aware of though is that the formula for the household funds points can give you a point when you're halfway when you should only get two points every 30k. You just have to remember to ignore odd numbers in the box.
