I have started my first decadynasty attempt and I have a question relating to opportunities.  I'm sorry if this has been answered earlier- I've read most of this thread, but it's easy to miss something in a thread this long!  Are we able to count school opportunities towards the black ops requirement?  I was thinking that it wasn't allowed, but then I couldn't find where I had read that.  My first heir is currently a child and had a school opportunity pop up, so I thought I'd ask!  Thanks!

Yes, you can count them. Just keep track so a future heir doesn't do the same one. It's the Life States Dynasty where the School Opportunities don't count.

I noticed in my Gen 4 game that my skilling opportunities (black ops) came from original inhabitants of the town who are long-lived because they're a fairy and a werewolf. That's made me wonder if skilling opportunities are fewer because they only come from places (the Spa, etc.), or original inhabitants. Could people working with older towns let us know if they receive any skilling ops from newcomers?

Edit to add: Okay, I just answered my own question with a skill op from a newcomer in town.

I know I've gotten skill ops from random townies before but I can't remember if it was only charisma or if it was all of them.   I did at one point at the end of my dynasty get one that was to name a drink after a random townie.

As I mentioned above, I did get a skill op from a newcomer, so that doesn't explain the drought.

A new question -- can kissing booth attendants be eligible for the NPC requirement?

I do not know whether this is any help, but throughout the Centauri Dynasty, there were more than plenty opps from beginning to end. The opportunites were given by original and 'settled' townies as well as newcomers, but also from NPC's. I tend to think that the flux of opps may be influenced by (new) friendships rather than 'townie status'.

Aren't the kissing booth attendants people from town?

I couldn't find them anywhere in town, and one lives in the same "household" as the maids, newspaper deliverers, etc.

In my Life States Dynasty one was a townie and the other was a homeless Sim.

If it's ever a townie than no, they can't count as an NPC.  Also, as soon as the season changes, they lose the job.  So it would only be viable during one season (Spring).  I'm of the mind that no, they don't count.  Metro has final say however.

I tend to agree that Kissing Booth attendants would not qualify as NPCs because of the seasonal nature.

I have the marriage bug that I think happened with a patch- the one where you don't gain control of a sim who marries into your household.  I haven't gotten Seasons yet, so I'm wondering if this was fixed with Seasons.  My generation 1 heir is still a teen, so I don't have to worry about it yet, but I was wondering if the issue is resolved with Seasons or not.
