Is there a way to get the value of street art so it can be counted as something left behind when the heir moves?

I don't think the street art has any value. It's worth 1000 simoleons when done for an opportunity, so you might ask if each piece can be counted as that.

Street Art can randomly appreciate as far as I can tell.  I don't know if it's because you do the opportunity when you do that piece of art or what but I've had it happen.  They're never worth a lot but they can be worth a little bit.

If you're making the murals in the house, you can click on them in Buy Mode to get the value.

They can have values without opportunities attached to them - I've been working on it (for the first time!), and while I've only had 2 of the opportunities, I've made over 20, and about 5 or 6 have cash value. I think my highest is worth 6 simoleans lol

Does anyone know if street art would appreciate in value if their creator died?

So how about using the opportunity value for however many are done for opportunities, and then use the Buy Mode value for the rest of the 10?

I'm currently running a small practice run for a Town DecaDynasty, mainly to test a few things that I'm not familiar with.  I do have a question... what is the easiest way to tell a homeless Townie from a regular Townie?  I'm more concerned with those that tend to move into the town and all that and the homeless, since the spouses have to be Townies with their residences.  Some are fairly easy for most towns, others not so much.

Try using "Invite Household Over," since if they're an NPC it'll usually be a huge list of people. Or try looking for the household name in Map View, or invite the target over, ask him to leave, and follow him home. If he just disappears at some point, he's an NPC. Or, if he's a teenager and above, ask about the career.

I did that... but the household list was blank.  Now, I'm running this test in Barnacle Bay and my heir has an RI that she got while at Prom.  Now, I did some looking up and the Lai's are an original family for the town, but when I went to invite his household over, it was blank.  Maybe that was just a glitch?  Do you have to know the household to invite them over?  I had thought about the inviting household over and then when it came up blank, I was rather confused XD  That, and I can't find his house...

Try inviting him over, asking him to leave, and following him with the camera.

I am having a small spouse problem. My 3. heir is a young adult and has done all of the requirements so I went for a spouse hunting. The problem is, there are only two sims that are elgibile for a spouse, one is dating a family member(that happened via story progression and I'd hate to break them apart) so my sims is now dating the second one but the problem is he has two children with his ex- girlfriend( I found out that when they became boyfriend/girlfriend). Is he elgibile for my sim to marry? In other circumstances I'd let her marry a random townie and move to another town to find a father for the next generation, but I don't want to waste my moves too soon in case of glitches in future because my game runs perfectly now* knocks on wood*

He has children, so he can't be a spouse. I don't like breaking up sims either, but your most viable option seems to be the one dating a relative.

All items are counted as their price in buy mode for all collections.   Opportunities do not factor into the collections.

Are you using mods to keep the towns alive?  Since story progression still isn't fixed to allow for townie children, thought I'd ask.  If you're using mods, then does it matter if it's in the rules or not?

Ok, thanks.  It's a good thing I don't care about my score!  At this point, it will be a huge accomplishment just to finish the challenge.

I don't use any mods, I'm going for HoF. He is not a original townie, he just randomly moved in during the game with his kids and their mother(they were only dating and they split up)

Anyone knows if Criminal career objects taken home & Career reward objects are 2 separate items?  In my mind they seem like the same thing, but the rules page listed it as separate.

Criminal career objects taken home are acquired more randomly than other career rewards, which are given at a set level of the career, which is probably what separates them from true career rewards.

Question: The merchants in Egypt/China/France don't count as NPC's for the 10 NPC Friends requirement, do they? The special merchants, general goods merchants, etc?

NPC usually don't have family or home, appears out of thin air into your town.  The merchants in world adventure actually do have family and a home.

The World Adventure xpac has been out for a long time, and if those merchants counted for NPC friends, I'm sure the list would have been updated by the team.  Since I don't see those merchants on the list, I'm going to say they are not counted.  Safer to stick with the list?  There are 34 on that list, more than enough for the requirement.

Are we allowed to harvest forbidden fruit to have a plant sim?

Household members are allowed to become PlantSims but an heir and their spouse can only become a PlantSim after the next heir has been born.  Heirs can never be PlantSims.
