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)
He is pretty good to use. Since he's an adult, he will be able to provide the tombstone since planning a young adult to die, that's just stressful. Believe me.

Very true.  Adults are the best for getting the tombstone.  Young adults take too long and elders don't have enough points to get a big enough tombstone.

That entirely depends on the elder.   I was able to use tattoos to keep Harwood Clay alive long enough to get the biggest tombstone possible.  I think he died around the time the heir hit young adult so you figure he lasted 5 weeks and was able to get more than 150,000 LTHP.  That's not too bad.

Yea I didn't actually know Matt was an adult so there I was searching sims wiki for an adult spouse and then I started the game and realised he was an adult. ;D Makes things that little bit easier, which is nice.

I have another question..

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.

Does this go only for our first heir onwards or for the actual townie we start off with as well? I.e: The first heir must be born within ten days of actually starting the file? If so, Matt better get a move on. :P He'll be alright, I just wanted to know for sure.

Every heir must be born within 10 days.  So you have 10 Sim Days to give birth to the first heir which mean Matt needs to move someone in and have them pregnant by the end of the first week.

Alright, only three sim days have passed and he is engaged so that shall get done. :D Thank you!

Well, according to Sims Wiki, Darren Dreamer is actually still a Teen, not a YA like I thought. I wanted to use him for a Deca-Dynasty, and have him marry Darleen, but it would've been unofficial anyways, because I need my mods to keep the game going (ErrorTrap and Overwatch!). So, since this is unofficial anyways, would letting Darren age up early be okay?

I'm not trying to gain a full advantage, or anything like that, Darren Dreamer was one of my favorite Sims to play with in TS2, and I was itching to use him in a Deca-Dynasty, when I found out he was in Lucky Springs.

Absolutely. If it's an unofficial attempt, then anything goes.

Don't believe everything you read in the wiki.  Once you actually download the town or if you had waited to see me update with Lucky Palms's residents you would have seen that Darren is indeed a Young Adult as they mentioned via TS3.com's news story.

Sorry about that! Yeah I thought that wiki was fairly accurate, anyways, since its one of our affiliates. I'm still keeping it unofficial anyways, since I use mods, and I'd like to save myself the frustration, with ErrorTrap.

Can you use the guitar op requiring you to get 500 tips as a black op on one generation and in another generation use the bass op requiring you to get 500 tips with the same name.

If the title is exactly the same, then no you can't (if the op will be counted as a BlackOp). If even one word is different in the title then you're fine.

I don't believe anyone has. Right now I'm not sure who is the furthest in a Dynasty, I think Pam may be one of the further along with the Challenge - Generation 4 I think?

I'm pretty sure out of everyone still going with a DecaDynasty, Generation 4 is as far as anyone is up to and Pam isn't the only one at that stage.

I have a toddler gen 5 in my game, but only on gen 4's YA stage in my thread. There's a few of us around that stage I think, MarianT, Pam, fanofaband, just based on the threads I've been reading.

I went up to gen six, but failed to make the 10th NPC friend. Big fail and totally unwarrranted. I just overlooked that side of things. :-[

I have never made it past the first generation. Once my heir moves I tend to loose interest I have so much for respect for all those people who have made it to generation two and beyond.

I got to Generation 4 in my first and blew it with plastic surgery. Currently I'm on Generation 3.

..I just started. :P I'm kind of the opposite of Rachel in that I think the moving houses thing is actually going to keep my interest going. I'm always for a change of scenery. :)

EDIT: Can the baby be born on the actual 10th day, or does it have to be before then? If it's not allowed to be on the 10th day, I have to start over. ::)

I'd interpret "within 10 days" as any time before midnight on Day 11.
