Too weird the exact same thing happened to me tonight in my life states, threw a birthday party and nobody came, next day just as they were leaving for graduation everybody turned up, it ended up as an impromptu graduation party instead. It's not the first time this has happened to me but it's rare it just seems to be a random glitch that sometimes crops up.

Urgh, it's happened again. I fear my game may become entirely corrupted.  :-[ This second time it happened without any previous travelling, but otherwise in exactly the same way, and I'm afraid the issue will keep spreading. May I try either fixing it with Twallan error fixing mods, or else move the household prematurely into another town?

@Lady Orc

Mods are banned, sorry.  However you can evict your family in edit town then move them back in to see if that fixes the problem.  If it still doesn't, you have permission to move town prematurely.  New town should solve all the problem.

Thanks, evicting didn't work, but moving towns did.  :) Fingers crossed this won't happen again any time soon!

About the 4 days rule, is it after  they turn into  an adult or after they move?

If it's the 10 day rule, it's within 10 days of moving (if I read the rules correctly) into a new house.

4 day rule is for founders in 4x4.

Lol exactly sorry. But is it 10days after becoming an adult or ten days after moving?

1. Heirs must be the result of two Townie Sims living in a household Trying For Baby and must be born within 10 days of starting in a new occupied Townie house. After the first generation, the former heir must be one of the parents. Genetic Engineering is not allowed.

I'd like to ask a question about the viability of Gardening as a career, if I may. I have planned to have my Gen 5 heir use gardening for supermax, but I'm wondering if that will give me enough opportunities if I stick her in the selfemployed gardening career. According to the list I read of possible opportunities there should be plenty, but of course I don't know how often they will pop up. My alternative plan would be to have her garden, but use some sort of rabbithole career to add more opportunities, possibly Science.

So, to summarize, my question is: Do the people who are more experienced with gardening in challenges think it's rich enough in opportunities even without a rabbithole?

I would add the Science career. Besides The possibility that you might not get enough opportunities, you need to make a great deal of money to max the career. That's fairly easy if you plant lots of money trees, and the red berry coffee beans from University Life and the greenhouse from the Store also help. Anyway, the time I used gardening as a skill, I did not get enough opportunities, and this was before I had Into the Future, which has almost eliminated skill opportunities for me.

Yes gardening opportunities is plentiful, however if you have into the future xpac then I suggest you employ her into the science career to get some rabbit hole career opp. 

A problem with gardening opps is a lot of those opps can be deliver "excellent" plums etc etc.  You have to wait for your garden to produce those quality before you can turn in those opps, might take a long time unless you already have those high quality plants waiting around.

Also gardening self employment career can be quite hard to max without omni plant.

Her father Nutzo Curious also wants to garden, so I may be able to have him raise enough of the good crops for her to deliver. I think I may use the Science career as a backup though, at least to see that I get enough opportunities. Thanks for the input.  :)

If I, say, chose Jamie Jolina, had her marry, give birth to the heir etc. Would she be able to take any opportunity but her child could still claim the same op as unique if they get it too? I understand that there can't be overlaps in between heirs, but what about the founders? Are they exempt, or are they treated the same as in the 4x4 dynasty?

Founders are treated differently here than in the 4x4. So Jamie can do what she wants without jeopardizing an heir's requirements.

I'm just about to give this another go and I just want to check that I can use the Game Selector 3.0 program, it's not listed in the rules although I know it's been approved for the Tournament challenges.
From the moment I fell down that rabbit hole I've been told what I must do and who I must be. I've been shrunk, stretched, scratched and stuffed into a teapot. I've been accused of being Alice, and of not being Alice, but this is my dream. I'll decide where it goes from here.

I know that it's allowed for the 4x4, so I don't see why it wouldn't be allowed for the other dynasties.

I'm looking for some clarification on the 'Vizard of Vine' skill challenge, since I've read conflicting reports on how it's supposed to work. My first question is: Should it be French grapes, or base game grapes? And my second question is: Does it have to be the nectarmaking sim doing the harvesting? I'm worried about him accidentally getting gardening skill, since his mother supermaxed gardening. I do know about the traveling glitch, so I haven't done any after he started his nectarmaking.

French grapes, and I think the nectarmaker in question has to do all of the gardening work. Or so I've heard. If someone who has completed the challenge can chime in, please do. :)

How it is supposed to work: French grapes, not base game (since the skill came with WA, like the grapes); by the sim who's doing the nectaring. Setting that sim to harvest only does not create the gardening skill, but if he's already got 1 or 2 points in it, then I believe it does raise it. But even with that, should not raise it to 10.

Of course, it doesn't work like that, since a Sim can sneeze and reset the challenge :(

(I did it in my Immortal Dynasty, without any travelling, and something like 1k French grapes.)

Thanks very much for the input, I'll expand the grape garden and have him harvest away. :)

I don't see anything in the rules about ageing down Townies, is it allowed? Am I, for example, allowed to throw a fountain of youth elixir at my heir's future wife who has turned elder?

Yep. I can think of at least one player who did that. So age down your townies at will!
