I'm thinking about moving the family to another town rather than trying a mod. The toddlers aren't aging now, and I think I'll keep running into problems if I try to keep this file going. I turned aging off, and turned it back on again, but don't know whether that will work. Anyway, would it be okay to move them? I've thought of a way to fit a move into their story.

Edit to add:  Now the game keeps crashing at about 6p.m. Sims time.

You can try moving them to another town. Treat it as if you were moving to a brand new house in your existing neighborhood. In other words, do not do this until you get all requirements to move and you're set, if that's possible.

Generation 3 just moved out and got married, and the generation 4 heir is still a toddler. She hasn't started working on any requirements yet, so it seems like a good time for a move (that and the game crashing all the time). I could go back and move just the parents, but I'm getting attached to the kids.

Anyway, thanks for the okay.

Two questions:

1. Is "unlockoutfits on" an acceptable cheat to use?

2. You say ghosts are allowed to be household members. So can I have a ghost spouse if I feel like it? Can ghost children be heirs?

I don't know about the cheat but I do know that ghost spouses and ghost heirs are allowed as ghosts have a normal life span.

Does 'criminal career objects taken home' mean just rewards for promotions in the later stages of the thief branch or all of those 'taking care of your own bonuses' objects?

If the cheat is not mentioned in the rules then it's not allowed so as far as I know unlockoutfits is not allowed.

The ghost spouse can only really be the first one because remember that you must move into a townie household and ghosts don't have homes.

Oh, you have to marry someone in the house you move into?

Rica technically speaking you could marry your first heir to Morty Goth and move into Goth Manor. Then you could divorce Morty and attempt to get into a romantic situation with one of the Goth Ghosts,get married to said Ghost and have a baby with them. I think so long as the nooboo was born within the ten days of moving to the new house it would be allowed. The rule just says that a new heir has to be born within ten days of moving to an occupied townie house.
Of course most people wouldn't do that but I am sure you could within the rules.

@Trip the only way to move into another house is by marrying one of the occupents but as I said there is nothing to stop you from divorcing them and marrying somebody else who is already in the house. I don't think you are allowed to move somebody else in and marry them but I haven't seen anything in the rules that state that for a fact.

You don't actually have to be married with the sim you reproduce with, just both have to be playable and living in the primary household.  So you could marry Morty, make one of his ghosts playable thereby adding them to the household, then reproduce with the ghost.  The only limitations on moving someone in is they can't have lived in a dynasty household previously.

I have no problem with the unlock outfits cheat. I will add it to the rules.

Thank you Metro. The base game and Ambitions have some of their best clothes locked, and this pleases me greatly.

EDIT:

Thanks a ton to you too. :D

Metro, did you see my question further up the page?
