Thanks for the spreadsheet Lena! I'm so excited about my new Lilith Pleasant dynasty.

Some questions about university:
*You get a point for each time you get an A in a course. Is this for marks of A and A+ only or does A- count?

Sorry about being late with this @Vesper. I must have missed seeing it. I guess A- can count as well.
Quote

*If a character you don't control finishes their semester can we select to have them sign up for another?

On a free day, yes. Otherwise, no.
Quote

*When do you count the points for a degree/ distinguished degree? When you get the final grades or after graduation the following day?

Does it make that much difference? Either one sounds okay to me.
Quote

*Presumably the Study Spot lot trait is added to the list of skill building lot traits?

Yes.
Quote

Also, now you can earn points on a free day what happens if you get another 10 points? Do you extend the free day to end 24 hours from that moment or do you add on 24 hours to the end of the original day?

Add 24 hours to the end of the original day.

Plus can heirs buy satisfaction rewards after control switches to them but before they move into their next home? This is usually a time that you can't lose (or gain) points but as you note "Satisfaction rewards bought upon completion of an aspiration are free" I was worried that was the only time they are free.

The only time satisfaction rewards are free now is upon the completion of an aspiration.

Thanks Marian.

I tested gen one with a non-played student and they did ok without supervision, even getting the occasional A, but don't think it's the best strategy.

Whatever I do for degree point scoring I'll be consistent within the challenge. I love the pack so a few heirs will study. Interesting fact - the time after you finish your course and get your grades, but before you graduate you are called a graduand.

Iím starting another attempt of this challenge and have a question about collections: If a founder/heir chooses meals or drinks for their 10 items, how do we keep them from becoming spoiled once theyíre placed in the museum? Or is there really no way to prevent this?

Thank you in advance!

@Shmeggo: no way to prevent it, but they should still retain some of their worth. Ambrosia does at least (I don't really keep other food around for prolonged time sorry!)

Ah, I see. Thanks, @Trip!

Just wanted to make sure there wasn't anything I needed to do to prevent the spoiling before placing in the museum.

I have an additional question regarding the point for adding $30,000 to the household funds. Since the initial amount upon move-in changes when items are bought for the house or Sims spend money on food and such, do we need to manually keep track of income brought in to accurately count the $30,000? I haven't been doing that, but probably should have been.  :(

Also, when a Sim maxes their unique skill and picks up another designated skill, are they able to gain points each time they increase their skill level or do we only count the two points once it's maxed?

Thanks again!

No. Just write down the household amount when you move in, and add 2 points every time that increases by $30,000. Don't bother subtracting what you spend on food and furniture.

You get to count each increased level of 2nd designated skill. For example, let's say that your Sim maxed mixology and then chose gourmet cooking as the next designated skill. If she was already at level 3 of gourmet cooking, then when she got to level 4, she would get a point.

Thank you, MarianT!

I think Iím still a little confused about the $30,000. I wrote down the householdís funds upon move-in, which was $14,000, but since the number has changed quite a bit from redecorating the house, Iím not sure how I would know when the $14,000 has been increased by $30,000 unless I count everyoneís earnings. I think Iím probably confusing myself and making this more complicated than it actually is.  :)

When your household income is at $44,000, give yourself the 2 points.

I have a question about starting with a child founder, related to aging them up.  Are we doing that with birthday cakes back to back or through CAS to age them from child to young adult?

I have been toying with the idea of starting this dynasty.  It is the one I was in the middle of in Sims 3 when I moved to Sims 4.  Still not sure I am sane, but here I am.

EDIT
I am thinking changing their age in CAS would be allowed since that is the only way to back an Adult/Elder to Young Adult.  Just had that part sink in
