When I first started my DecaDynasty, I thought it was harder than the Immortal Dynasty.  And some generations truly are more difficult than others.  My third generation who just got released as the current heir had a very easy time of it.  Everything went very smoothly.  Other generations won't be that easy.  You can work it out so that none of your generations are hurting for money.  Once you get started with Money Trees and perfect produce, you can put it into one of the chests you get while traveling.  My new family had nearly $300,000 sitting in that chest just waiting for them to pick it up.

I just got a random "+1,200" in my decadynasty while my Sims were asleep. I looked at everyone's work/retirement stipends, and nobody gets that much. :-\ Should I get rid of it?

I Googled it, and it seems that it's a common bug. I think that I got it once in one of my abandoned immortal dynasties, too.

No, that's fine. Keep it.

Although my toddler heir (gen. 4) is aging up on schedule, her parents seem to be stuck. Does anyone know how to unstick them? It's not a disqualification, but someone will eventually have to provide a tombstone.

It's an allowed cheat, so don't worry about turning them on in these situations. Just remember to turn them off.

@Metro:

I think maybe Marian means their ages are stuck.  Not that the Sims are stuck and need a reset.

Are they stuck on 'Days to Aging Up: Never?' I suggested a check to fanofaband for her DecaDynasty, but it uses mods and you would need to ask permission to do it. I've only had the bug for my whole town, but I'm trying to work out what's causing it for just a few sims.

Oh, yeah. I misinterpreted "stuck." Haha. MarianT, let me know if you can/cannot find a solution. If you need to use a mod temporarily for a fix, then that's okay too. Just uninstall the mod afterwards before continuing. Good luck.

For reference, my suggested check was here:

If it's not the aging flags, then I have no idea. Sorry. :(

Thanks everyone! I'd hoped the problem would resolve itself when I returned to the game, but it's still there -- the toddlers are a day older, the parents not. Sweetpea, I'll try the mod, and if that doesn't work, I'll try evicting the family in Edit Town and moving them back into the same house.

If neither of those works, another possible but very risky fix would be to use Twallan's advanced Reset Sim interaction, but I have no idea whether Metro will permit it or whether that's going to work.

Evicting the family in Edit Town should probably be your first choice, Marian. Use mods as a last resort, including Twallan's advanced Reset Sim.

I wouldn't recommend the Reset Sim unless it's the last option left. I have only ever used it when sims get stuck in the middle of a birthday interaction, because it does some irreparable damage including the loss of wishes and the current clothes. Because I've never had the bug, I am wary about recommending potential fixes that could make gameplay even worse than it is with bugged aging.

Oh, believe me, I'm not recommending it at all. Using any mod always comes with a "use at your own risk" kind of understanding.
