Last night I opened my DecaDynasty and out of no where Agnes had a birthday.  No makeover, no tattoo, Only the mirror was used to fix her hair. Because I took out off CC from my game. No notification that it was her birthday. I'm only 1 week and 8 days into this file.

@sdhoey:

Sounds like you have the wrong lifespan settings, did you make sure it is on normal?  Agnes starts with 6 days to Adult on normal, and she should have 21 days before reaching Elder.  Now on medium lifespan, Agnes starts with 3 days to Adult, and have 12 days before reaching Elder -- that's a total of 15 days.  You did say your file is 1 week 8 days (15 days).  Can you double check your lifespan settings?

Everything is correct, I did have problems sometime back, and had to do a factory reset of my EA folder. I almost lost my Immortal Dynasty because of it. I wonder if whatever the problem was effected this file also?
Can I just scrap this attempt and restart a new in another town?

Sure go ahead, good luck on your new dynasty.  At least you didn't lose too much, only 15 days  ;)

Glancing through the rules and such, it doesn't appear to be explicitly forbidden so long as no former household members are still there.  I imagine this is more of a "spirit of the rules" as opposed to "letter of the law" issue.  The point seems to be living in/updating various homes and mixing the town's gene pool.  Therefore, I'd say it seems more "hall of fame-worthy" if you end up in a different house.  If you're not concerned about hall of fame status, I'd say go for it.  Hope that helps.

Ah, I really do not care at the moment because heir eight isn't an adult yet thankfully.

I found a post by Pam from earlier that answers your question.

If the founder or any of his/her family is still living there, then no.  That would be returning members to the household that have already left and is against the rules.  At generation 3, it's likely that the founder's family will still be there.  But by generation 8, it would probably be a whole different family and your Sim would be marrying into the new family and moving into the house.

When an heir achieves his/her requirements, moves, and the next heir is born, can they move out of the active household?

Yes.  Remember though, once he/she leaves the household, he/she may never be invited back into the household of an active heir.

I still haven't installed the EP, but I wonder if there isn't a time restriction on how long you can stay in OL can we count that as one of the towns you can move into during the dynasty? Of course if you add everything you need before going into the gameplay. ISorry if ti's a very stupid question, but I still don't know well how everything works and I'm a bit curious about that.
And does every career and skill counts towrds as arequirement? Also, are there any new collectables or NPC's?

You cannot start a new game in Oasis Landing, but you can live there permanently, there is no time limit in Oasis Landing.   However for dynasty challenges, we decided to make Oasis Landing travel time as vacation time.  Each household is allowed 10 days vacation.  Vacation time includes time spent in China/France/Egypt and time spent at University or Time Travel (to Oasis Landing).

Can we count that as one of the towns you can move into during the dynasty? Of course if you add everything you need before going into the gameplay.

Unfortunately no, Oasis Landing will be treated like going to vacation or going to university.

Sorry if ti's a very stupid question, but I still don't know well how everything works and I'm a bit curious about that.

Not stupid at all.  ;D

And does every career and skill counts towrds as arequirement?

Yes and no.

There are 3 new skills in this expansion pack - Advanced Technology, Bot Building, and Laser Rhythm-a-con.  Bot building will have to be careful, you can build nanites and create nanites, just can't build a bot (since plumbots are banned).

There are also 3 new careers in this expansion pack, however since you are only travelling to Oasis Landing using your vacation time, you might not have enough time to level these careers:  Astronomer, Bot Arena , Plumbot Dealer.

Also, are there any new collectables or NPC's?

Yes, there are new collectables: Nanites, Fish, Insects, and Plants.

No new NPCs, all the NPCs in Oasis Landing is already included in our NPC friends list.
NPC -- babysitter, burglar, fighfighter, maid, mail delivery, pizza delivery, police, repair technician, social worker.

This is probably an old question that has been asked before.....
Can you count quests in Egypt/China/France as part of your 10 opportunities?

    I have a question about the moving towns rule. Are we only allowed to do this because of glitches or can we do it just because we want to? Also, do we have to ask permission first?

    It's officially a part of the rules, so you don't need to ask permission to move towns.

    Moving is done at your own discretion, pretty much. The best time to do it is when the bugs get unbearable, but if you find yourself merely wanting a change of scenery, it's your choice. And if it comes back to bite you by not having an available move when you need it, it's too bad because it was your choice. :P
