I think I'll go back to the previous save. She's only a teen there, but I'm nervous about what other glitches might appear.

My heir accidentally got an extra day in the baby stage; it's a long story, but is that okay?

The long story: I forgot that it was his and his twin's birthday, and they were in a locked room in their swings, so nobody could get them out and put them on the floor until the next morning. Heh, maybe the story wasn't that long. Still, do I have to start over now, or is that alright?

It will have to be Metro's call, but it wasn't a bug or a technical issue.  Deliberately locking out adults and forgetting it's a birthday is a player mistake.  If you're not going for Hall of Fame, it's ok.  But if you are, you might be looking at a restart.

Yeah, I hate to be a meanie, but if I let this slide, then every player who messes up one time would then need to automatically be given a free pass. So, I agree with Pam — it was player error. @Upinde — if you are going for the HOF, then it's a restart.

As this is only the first generation heir and they're currently toddlers, and only one has learned one toddler skill, I'm just glad it didn't happen later. ::) Thanks for the clarification!

Okay, question. Sorry if this has been asked before but I'm in a rush to start. Can the "Founder" (if that's the proper term) move in with his/her spouse rather than the other way round? I want to have Marc Brandt marry Julienne Knack because 1) She's rich and lives in a huge house 2) she's so easy to woo, what with being a Flirty Snob and all as opposed to 3) Marc having Commitment Issues, so I'd rather not try to woo him and 4) Good old Nick and Pattina are nice and old so they can easily provide the tombstone requirement without me having to lose my beloved Marc and Julienne. So would it be okay for Marc to woo Julienne and move in with her, or since I'm starting with him does she have to be the one that moves in?
EDIT: I was reading this thread and realised I couldn't have Julienne woo Marc if I wanted to, since the Knacks are not allowed under the "couple with no chldren" rule. Just as well.

I don't see anything in the rules that would specifically prevent this.  However, you might want to wait for Metro to rule on it because I don't think it's come up before now.

Also, keep in mind that the tombstone must be a medium or large size.  The elders may not have enough time to earn enough happiness points to get one that's large enough for the moving requirements.

Thank you for your response! I have decided to create a save file just before they get married that I can later return to in case I need to adjust my strategy. Just to be on the safe side.
Thanks also for the good point about tombstones. As it turns out, Pattina and Nick are not elders but Adults, which should give them plenty of time, especially as Nick's LTW is to reach the top of a career in which he is already level 6. Pattina's, however, will need changing as she has Home Design Hotshot, which we know to be quite bugged. As she is already a Natural Cook, Artistic, and Charismatic, I think Renaissance Sim should suit her well :)

The only person who cannot extend their life is the current heir. So once an heir is born a founder, previous heir,spouse and or spare can extend their lives.

From the rules on page one:

Quote
1. Anything that lengthens life for heirs is forbidden—eating Life Fruit, Ambrosia, make-overs, tattoos, plastic surgery and drinking from Leon's Fountain of Youth (Hidden Springs). Non-heirs have no life-extending restrictions. Once your firstborn makes an appearance and becomes the active heir, you’re free to extend the life of the former heir.

It is indeed a yes.  And all you had to do to find the answer was read the rules on the first page.  It's all there in one nice, tidy page.  Before asking all these questions, I suggest you read through the rules enough to make sure you understand them completely.

Well this is from the general rules:
2. Choose a pre-made townie family with no children from any unaltered EA designed neighborhood.

So someone who is a teen is not a family without kids, so I would say no you can't use her.

Twinmum is correct you cannot use the Dreamweavers as a starting family. You could however start in a different house where there are no children/teens/toddlers and persue and marry Bubblegum once she is old enough. Always remember that the heir must be born within ten days of starting a new townie house so your Sim would need to have moved in Bubblegum before day six for that to happen.

I'm with Twinmum and Rachel on this.  Bubblegum is still a teen and that makes the household ineligible.  She's the child in the household that disqualifies it.

To be honest with you Metro already called it as he wrote the rules and they state that you have to move into a house with no children. So for that very reason you cannot use the Dreamweavers as your starting family.

It wouldn't matter if she was YA as I wanted to use the Angelista household in Bridgeport but since Lala is Tiara's Mother, you can't unless you start as a different family. Being a YA doesn't matter.

The Dreamweavers are not even a townie family. They're a player creation. So their eligibility for this Dynasty ends right there.

Ah..I did even think about the fact they are a stock family in UC. I was in the mindset of stock EA neighborhoods.

Wait, I thought Union Cove was approved for DecaDynasties. I thought Bubblegum Dreamweaver was a Young adult in Union Cove. Not a teen.

If that wasn't true, I'm a little bummed. I wanted to do the Big Bang Theory edition of a DD.
