   The bigger question is about transportable objects.  If the heir goes to the hermit, for instance, and catches a shower tarp, or goes to the back fishing hole in Oasis Park and catches a violin, those things have to stay behind?  That point is not clear.

They could not take those two items when they move out...

Quote
Items/Sims Heirs can take to the next household:
A spouse. No other Sims may move to the next household and Sims that are allowed to move must have empty inventories. (See exception next)
Heirs and their spouses are allowed to take any career rewards that can be placed in personal inventory. They cannot bring career rewards from other Sims.
Pets.

So, basically, it comes down to three things: a spouse, career rewards, and pets.

Well, I failed my challenge. Not by my own fault, my game is crashing randomly. When I tried to customize Gen 2's spouse, the game crashed... and I didn't save before then, so the last save was just after I moved her in, two days ago. I lost all that progress and couldn't continue on. :(

Be warned, the game might start shutting down on you without warning. It may be because I have too many packs installed. I may need to disable a lot of packs.  :'(

Please make sure you are "saving as" before you go into CAS or manage world. There is a known bug that will cause your game to crash in when exiting CAS and Simgurunick is aware of it.

I failed due to changes in rules that were brought in by the team after my initial one completed his requirements.

Um, no, Dek. The team would not fail you like that. What rule are you talking about? If it's the heir needing to be a YA before moving out and you had moved out a Teen heir already, that's fine IMO. You just continue on with your Dynasty with the new rule in place.

Do the parties have to be a unique type per generation ? Do events like a successful holiday (New Years) count?

Thanks in advance!

Okay thanks for that. I will be more careful from now on when playing the Sims 4. EA needs to fix this. Yes, it's a broken record but I think EA is not listening to us and sending out shoddy products and product that needs nerf mods. :(

Simgurunick posted about it after he found it in his game upon actual release.

Thank you, team for always clarifying my questions.  It is sometimes easy to get confused or to forget a part of a rule, even when you go back and re-read them.  You guys work so hard for us and it is appreciated.

To those guys who have "failed" this dynasty.  I may be very wrong, but I look at a "dynasty" of any sort, very differently from a tournament. Sure, you can fail a tournament, I've done so many times.  However, in my humble opinion, a dynasty is more a learning experience.  Did you mess up somehow and that dynasty doesn't work?  To me that is a do-over-having-learned.  Maybe I redo that dynasty, from the beginning, or maybe a I do another one in the same type, or a different one.  Each time I've learned something and move on.  Sometimes I "practice" first, then start to write up the dynasty, and sometimes even practicing leads to still, one more mistake, some of them not my own fault, (like your founder executes herself by "fixing" something electrical and a storm comes along and zaps her!, yes, that did happen), and sometimes you didn't understand the rules and went through days of play inadvertently breaking them.  You can always pm a team member to deal with that and get their advice.  So please, don't consider your favorite dynasty a fail, just a do over.  Just my opinion but I think maybe the team will agree.  It's a personal challenge, not one for any other kind of reward.
What?  Grannies can't play games?
I speak perfect Nooblik, (and some Simlish)!

My founder is being stubborn and refusing to get his last promotion. Now all of his good friends are dying lol. I can deal with making new friends but the not getting promoted is a problem lol. He’s already imbibed one potion of youth purchased by his spouse. Thinking of chalking this up to a lesson learned if he dies before getting that promotion.

Having a lot of fun at any rate. A lot of things I don’t usually do like parties.

Thanks team for a great challenge!

@craterdweller If you have Get Together, try forming or joining a club and purchase the Networked perk. That can really help with promotions. Also, as I'm sure you know, make sure that your Sim has all of the requirements necessary for promotion done, and try to send him to work in the best mood possible. If he and his spouse renew their wedding vows (purchase the wedding arch, click on it and choose "renew vows"), he will get a +3 happy moodlet for 48 hours. That can really help. Also, the Entrepreneurial reward trait may help. Which career is it?

Also, going forward, if you have the Parenthood pack, always get the responsible trait. This helps job performance enormously. If you don't have Parenthood (or even if you do) getting Top-Notch Toddler and completing Scouts will boost career performance.

He had started a club, the audiophiles, but the members are the good friends that have been dying all week  :P. I think the RNG has just been unlucky for him as he’s gone to work fully primed but then another friend dies 😂.

Thanks for tip about renewing vows. I may try that later when I get home. His heir on the other hand has some nice toddler/child/YA traits if I manage to get past founder.

Oh and the founder is in the Entertainer: Musician track currently stuck at level 9. His unique skill is guitar.

Oh, yes, those sadness buffs are hard to overcome. If he gets the buff while at home you can use a moodlet solver to get rid of it, but it is hard to manage if a lot of friends are dying in succession.

aargh how did I miss this new challenge? It's perfect [drops everything to start one]

Questions:
*In Finishing Up it says "remember to add up the total value of your museum." I can't work out what/ where the museum is - do we add up the value of the collections before we leave each house?
*Any restrictions on holidays?
*Can the parties take place on community lots so fulfilling both criteria?
*Is swapping aspirations for point gathering OK?

Welcome @mariposa1127

All heirs must be natural born.

Yes to all questions except no restrictions on holidays.  Good luck, Vesper. :)

@Vesper If you look at the spreadsheet, at the bottom you can enter the amounts for each item you put in for each heir.

Example:

frogs:
10
10
10
10, etc

it will keep a running total for you for each heir and the whole family.

@Vesper   Yay! You'll be starting a Power of Ten Dynasty! (And I also loved the shared museum from the 10-Gen Townie Dynasty)

@craterdweller   Congratz on that last promotion!

Regarding the 10 item collection. Is it ten items of the same thing or a collection of ten different items? How do I put that in the spreadsheet so it shows museum values?

Thanks! :)

No, it was the 10 friends suddenly having to be outside the household.

The heir was a YA and moved out, the founder's wife and kids were most of his normal good friends. So yeah, I failed due to rules changes.

@mariposa1127 I'm not a team member, but I can answer your question. Your collections need to be of the same type, but individual items may be different. For example, you could choose to use frogs for the collection. You collect 10 kinds of frogs (Dirt frog, leaf frog, heart frog, etc). You could not collect 5 frogs and 5 fish. Of course, your 10 frogs could all be the same (10 Dirtsurfer, for example). 10 paintings of different types (classic, pop art, realism, etc), but not 6 paintings and four sculptures. Does that make sense?

You would enter the value of each item on a different line, as shown above and then the spreadsheet calculates the totals.
