I'm not really understanding the tombstone thing.  Possibly my question was answered, but I only read through the first ten or so pages of this thread.  I'm considering trying this, and it would be my first legacy (dynasty).

I play Hidden Springs, so I'd like to get Ella Carlisle and Sebastian Vanderburg together to start.  So in order to have their child move out, one of them would have to die first?  And the child must be born in the first ten days?  As they are both Young Adults, wouldn't the child be older than an Adult before one of them dies?

Also, I'd have Ella move into the castle, and Renauld and Caterina already have tons of friends (I think).  Would that count toward the friendship tally or does it have to be the parents of the heir?

The tombstone requirement says that someone has to die.  It doesn't have to be the parents of the heir.  It could be someone you moved in.

You can't use Ella Carlisle or Sebastian Vanderburg as both of their houses are disqualified for this challenge.   They both have parents with children even though those children are all grown up. 

The friendships have to be current which means you would have to have Renauld or Caterina still alive with all of their friends still alive at the time that their was moving to the new house.

Also, it might seem nitpicky but there is a difference between legacies and dynasties.   A legacy was started with Pinstar's rules or some variation that someone else has come up with.   A dynasty is a challenge on this forum that was made up by Metro.   Anytime you are referring to an Immortal Dynasty, Townie DecaDynasty or a Life States Dynasty please call it a dynasty and not a legacy. 


For some reason my heir isn't getting any opportunities, what's weird is that the rest of the household is getting loads of them. Is there a way to increase the chance of getting an opportunity for my heir?

I don't think there is really.  I just suggest a job that will most likely give them, keeping all the slots open and working on your skills to see if that helps.  I did have some trouble a while back where the Sim I wanted to get opportunities wasn't getting any and I think it was because I had supermaxed his skill before he was a YA.  Did your heir also supermax early?

That's... disappointing.  "Children" to me means anything from baby to teen, not a young adult.  Oh well, no challenge for me.  I guess I'll just use some of the rules for something else.

She's a self employed painter and a young adult. She hasn't supermaxed painting yet, but she's at level ten. I'm surprised that she hasn't recieved any skill-related opportunities.

I'd recommend putting her in a rabbit-hole job (except not fortune-teller). My painter actually picked up only 2 painting ops, plus some for handiness and logic.

Ok, which one would you recommend for a painter?

Law Enforcement, specifically the forensics branch, uses painting as a metric. You would probably have to give up logic as a future supermax, though.

I'll try that. I wasn't planning on supermaxing logic, because the challenges look so hard. Thank you!  ;D

You're not going to play this challenge because you can't use that specific couple as founders?  There are many more in many towns that would be fun to play.

I have a love/hate relationship with the game.  I can only play certain towns and certain sims.  :)

That would be part of the fun though, I'd think!

You may discover new sims to love when you hated them before.

One thing about joining rabbit hole careers to get opportunities - it looks like careers in combination rabbit holes don't spawn opportunities properly.

And you can max the Forensics career path with maxed painting and Logic at 5 or 6. Just keep the other job metrics at the highest level, and watch out for autonomous chess-playing when you're done.

Cathy, you're right about the rabbit-holes, but I didn't mention it because he's playing in Sunset Valley.

I don't understand, does this mean I'll only get rabbit hole opportunities if I'm in Sunset Valley?

You'll only get rabbithole opportunities if the rabbithole you work in is not a combined rabbithole (for example, the combined public services building in Bridgeport and Moonlight Falls, which contains city hall, the police, and the military). Sunset Valley doesn't have any combined rabbitholes, but it's not the only place without them. Riverview and Twinbrook are fine too, and it depends on where you're working in Bridgeport. I don't play any of the store worlds (well, besides Riverview), so I can't comment there.
