Just one note on the Union Cove list: Panther Character should be listed as spouse-only material because he lives with a teenager.

Otherwise, it looks great. :D

Thanks guys.  Yeah I knew about Panther and didn't realize that the symbol didn't replace properly.  Thanks Trip.

What a great list! I'll be sure to check it if I ever get brave enough to go for a DD.

That is such a handy list! I've been thinking about doing a DecaDynasty for a while now but I wasn't quite sure who I could choose. That list makes me feel so much more confident now!

A really great list!!
But what about Jeffrey Castor and Jade greenwood? Don't they count in that group:
"¤4 denotes teenagers and the number of days before they hit YA.  This group of people also has to be moved in as a spouse."?

Teens that have 7 or more days before they age up were not included. The heir has to be born within the first 10 days of your start, and that wouldn't allow enough time.

Jade and Jeffrey are both in the beginning of their teen years from all my testing with them so yeah as Marian said - it would not work for them.   You can't age up anyone early outside of the house because cakes can only be used on their birthdays and even if you know at the beginning of the game they have 6 days - the game may have done something to change that so you could potentially ruin your chances of HOF without ever knowing it.

Also, keep in mind that teens have to be moved in as spouse. For example, you could have Bebe Hart as a spouse or Parker Langerak, but you couldn't have them marry each other.

Just checking on something to make sure I'm OK. I'm about to have my gen 1 heir propose to Coral Goldbeard. Her father still lives in the house. Both of them were fairies, but I'll cure them just before the wedding. Is this OK, or do I have to pick a new spouse? Coral has no kids from story progression herself.

You can either cure both of them or cure just Coral and move her father out immediately after you move in.

Thanks, Marian, I should have worded that a bit differently - coffee hadn't been consumed yet.

What I meant was that Coral still lives with her father. Is that an impediment in any way? I know there has been quite a bit of discussion around this lately and I think I lost track of the gist of it sometime last month...

Ok, I am up for another try at a Dynasty. I thought I'd try the DecaDynasty this time. Never tried this one before, so that will be a lot of fun :)

I have been reading and reading, but can't seem to find the answer to this question:
If I start with a household with a single sim and he/she can marry another sim, do I have to let that other sim move in with my sim or do I have to move in my sim with the other sim? Or maybe it doesn't matter and I can choose?
Problem? Don't panic! There is always a solution. You just have to find it  :D

The house you start with is the the house the first heir has to grow up in.   The heir has to be born of two sims living in the same household.

You can marry Coral just as long as Coral doesn't have any children within the household.

Ok, I've run into a spot of technical trouble, it seems that my last save file have stoped working.
It says when I try to load the file that something has gone wrong and I should shut the game down.
Permission to try to see if one of the back ups will work instead?
I'd loose some time in the game but better that than losing the dynasty...
