Question on Townie DecaDynasty Challenge

Can Claire Ursine be used as the founder of a DecaDynasty?

All questions about the townie Decadynasty should be asked on the appropriate thread. Therefore I am merging this with the Townie Decadynasty Challange thread on the challange board.

By the way the answer is no.

I just moved out my heir and discovered that the imaginary friend doll which she had left in her bedroom showed up in her inventory anyway. Is this a disqualification?

I'm a little rusty on IF mechanics. Is that typical? Either way, it sounds like what happened was out of your control.

Basically, if the IF doll doesn't become real through the potion, it's attached permanently to your sim. It is out of the player's control -- you can't sell it, and as I found, you can't leave it behind when you move.  I think someone said you can have your sim bury it in the sandbox as a child, but I haven't tried that.

In my sim's case, the IF doll is inert, that is, it never "grew up" but just stayed a doll. I guess you could say it's okay to take the doll with you whether inert or active, provided you don't make it real through the potion after the sim moves.

You can no longer bury the doll in a sandbox, EA stopped it with a patch.

Can you start with a household, lets say, one with 5 people in, then kick a few out at the start so you just have 1 or 2 people left?

Hi warr, I have bolded the rule set that answers your question.  You can move them out but they will not be able to join a household in the future.  Hope this helps :)


Adding to Your Household

1. Heirs must be the result of two Sims living in a household Trying For Baby and must be born within 10 days of starting in a new occupied Townie house.
2. The first named child born into a new house is your DecaDynasty heir.
3. There are no restrictions to moving Sims in or out of the household, except as stated below:
  • Once a Sim leaves the household, he/she may never be invited back into the household of an active heir.
  • Sims from the previous household may not move in with a later heir, either when he/she moves or after the fact.
  • The heir must remain within the household until they have completed the requirements to move.
  • The only items Heirs can move with are Career Rewards and Lifetime Happiness Rewards that they earn themselves. No other objects.

However, can you delete them? Like, not move them into a house, just remove them entirely?

Well, no. That would involve having testingcheats on.

You can kick them out. They might leave town, they might not. But if you don't want to spend money on buying them a house, it's your best option.

No, sorry I suck at explaining, I mean move them out using edit town then deleting them from the clipboard.

I don't think that's an authorized use of Edit Town.  You would have to start the game in that house and immediately choose move.  Then simply just kick out the people you don't want in the house.  To kick out is an option that can be checked at the top of the moving screen on the right side.  That's what a lot of people have done with the Roomies household.   They just find a house somewhere else.  Otherwise you are altering your starting town via the townies which is definitely not allowed.

Why do you even want to delete them anyway? Surely if you just want them out of the picture just kick them out and don't have your Sims socialise with them?

Nevermind, I found a solution around it, change which sim I start with!  ::) My DecaDynasty is now underway! With some sims I personally haven't seen used in a dynasty  ;)

It's been almost 6 months since I finished my Immortal Dynasty... I think it's time for me to start up a DecaDynasty!

I really cannot wait to see it Alexandria.I have tried loads of times but I just can't seem to find a family that I really like. I loved playing with James Douglas and Hebe Smith in Union Cove but the town runs so slow on my computer it is impossible to play.

Thanks Rach and AdnaanA.
I'm going a completely separate way with this story, and will be trying out a third-person approach.
I started playing last night, and my heir isn't even born yet, but I'm already enjoying it! Haha.

I've started with Matthew Hamming.. He's alright to use, yeah? Single adult living in Bridgeport with no other household members, and therefore no children. (And yes, I'm going for yet another story. I don't know, I just felt like at least getting this dynasty started before the next one comes along. :P)

Matthew Hamming is fine.  Bridgeport isn't the best town, though.  You'll be required to move all over town and have at least one baby in each location.  The problem is that the apartments in Bridgeport are horrible for raising babies.  For some reason, the parents try to take the babies down the elevator to feed them and maybe for more things.  It was very frustrating for me when I tried to have babies in an apartment.  The Immortal Dynasty isn't so bad because your family never leaves the Dynasty lot.  Also, you cannot make the apartments bigger.  I just wouldn't recommend Bridgeport for this challenge.

Thanks, Pam! I've started already. :-[ I get your point, that does sound very irritating! If it helps, the only thing the babies and toddlers will be doing is getting trained because I have that deluxe swing thing and I like to keep them there until childhood. ;D

Yeah, the swing might make enough difference for it to be tolerable.  And you can always take them to a park to teach the skills if the apartment doesn't work right.  Good luck with it!  Are you writing a story, too?

Edit:  Never mind.  I found it!

Yea, taking them to the park is a great idea! Thank you, Pam. :)
