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.

On the 10th day is still "within 10 days" so you're fine.

So in my game, I had a multiple birth and now the children are saying their birthdays are on different days.  The one who is schedule to age up first was the last to be born.  It's the toddler stage and I just noticed the problem.  I can't remember which one is the correct age setting.   Do I let the kids age up on the day the game says to even though they should be the same age or can I cake them together when the youngest is supposed to turn older?

I think Metro will have to answer that one.  I don't remember if it's come up already.

Rica, yeah it sounds like the game threw you a curve ball. So, do whatever you want to to get them back on track to where they all have the same birthday for simplicity's sake.

I added the following new ban to Additional Restrictions:

5. The Wishing Well Sim Store item is banned.

I have a question on why making wishes from the wishing well is banned but making wishes through the genie is allowed?  Shouldn't it both be treated the same?  Or is it genie lamp is allowed because it is a lifetime reward and wishing well isn't allowed because it is a store item?

The Wishing well is a much more powerful item and that's why it's banned.  The Genie has wish restrictions.   

The wishing well is going to be awesome for challenges.

-No cooldown whatsoever.
-Can go from career level 1 to 10 in one sim day just from repeatedly wishing for power. Does not matter if it's rabbithole, profession, or self-employed.
-Wishing for wealth can put a random car in that sim's inventory, even the Marguet Vaguester

The wealth is no different from wishing for money from the genie but the genie does require a bunch of happiness points or luck to get whereas the Wishing well sits in Lucky Palms or can be placed somewhere for a small amount of money.    A genie has three wishes before you have to get another one and the wishing well is never used up.

Ahh thanks, I have only ever wished for wealth from the lamps.  I didn't realize you could affect careers with the well.  Of course I just added 900,000 dollars to the family coffers in 24 hours using multiple lamps so I wanted to verify before I saved.  ::)

How hard are decadynasties to actually do? I've read the rules and requirements, and Pam's decadynasty. She makes it look easy, which I'm sure it isn't. Then again, Pam makes everything look easy. I have been holding off from trying this challenge, as the requirements are definitely harder than an immortal dynasty. Not just that though, also that even with a house full of sims, depending on what jobs they have, and how much you use, money can still be tight. I am nowhere close to being able to buy any property in my immortal dynasty, but maybe I need to start with a partnership, to at least get the money from that.

My understanding is that DecaDynasties are far harder than Immortal Dynasties.  The proof is that no one has actually finished a Decadynasty.  It takes a long time and there are just so many little things that you have to remember to get done and all has to be ready within the 3 weeks of adulthood and then it's another 10 days to get the next generation in right after that.
