Right now, my heir is about 3-5 days away from adult. The only requirement left is 6 opportunities. Am I in good shape?

I'd say you're in very good shape.  In addition to becoming a celebrity to trigger some opportunities, you might also consider getting your Sim a rabbit-hole job for awhile.  Just don't let him/her get to level 10.

Yes, Dynasties are permitted in any EA created world or Union Cove (but no other player created worlds!)

Yes, you're correct.  Union Cove is allowed in any Dynasty challenge.

Ok. Right now she's at level 8. But she's only generation 1. I forgot to mention that the career hasn't been maxed yet.

If you haven't already heard, there is a huge bug going on with the latest patch (1.42).   Sims that get married aren't getting the option to be moved in together.  In fact, the new spouse isn't coming under your control at all.   This is a major decaDynasty problem.   Metro & I would like some patience as we try to figure out the best way to handle this glitch.

Thank you.

Ok Guys - Metro and I still need to talk and we're waiting to see if there is anything from EA regarding the current marriage problem.

Until such a time as there is a fix or solution, players who are in the middle of a townie decadynasty can hold off on patching.

I patched up before the notification not to, and my heir is ready to marry. I'm planning on waiting until I get Seasons, but of course would like to move on if you've come up with an acceptable work-around for the marriage problem.

On a separate matter, the online dating feature should be beneficial to Townie Decadynasty players. You'll get a list of eligible Sims in town  plus their traits, and you'll have a way to contact them.

If my sim marries a townie with a child born already (like clair ursine after her baby is born) can that child move in with its parent but not as the heir?

This has been addressed earlier in the thread, and the answer is no. It also disqualifies Claire as a founding decadynasty spouse because she lives alone and can't leave baby Ursine behind.

Also, I think you can only move the spouse no matter what the age of his or her roommates are.

You can add to the household all you want.  The restrictions are that you can't move in children and once they live with you once, they can't live with you ever again.

You can't move in children?  I thought that you could.  Where does it say this in the rules?  I can't find it.

Metro made a ruling within the thread that you couldn't move in children that would be older than the heir.  The heir has to be the first child born in the house.  So that means you can't move in other children that would be older than the heir.   And since you have to have a child within the first 10 days of moving in, that includes children from other households.

The rules state the firstborn child.    The actual ruling is within the thread.  As with all dynasties, the rules aren't always just the bulleted items in the first post.  It was actually a recent development and I'll go find it now for you.

I found it:   On page 42 here, Metro says that by moving in children from a spouse's previous house is against the spirit of the challenge.  It was reiterated on page 52.

Regarding the marriage bug, I wonder if turning on testing cheats and adding the new spouse manually would work.

Pam, I'd be happy for any work-around, but you want to end up with the heir in the spouse's house. I think you're going to have to go into Edit Town and take control of the spouse's house, then do testingcheatsenabled true to add the heir. Whether Metro, Rica, and Rachel will approve that remains to be seen.
