@PeregrineTook: Does the issue affect all your existing saves, should you have them?

It does.  I have the one back-up file and there's no school in that one either.

Give it a try. Are there other rabbitholes affected, though? It makes me worry for the future of your file.

That's actually a good point.  All of the actual Dragon Valley lots are simply labeled "community lot" when you mouse over them, so that may mess things up moving forward.
I think I'll probably just start over to make sure it doesn't come back to haunt me a few generations into it.
Thanks, Trip.

I apologize for commenting on this thread as I know there hasnít been much activity for quite some time, but I ran into a minor issue that Iíd like to seek guidance on.

When my heir aged up from a toddler to a child, her third trait never appeared (although I selected it). Iíve tried restarting the game and waiting a full day from when she aged up to see if that would fix it, but she still has only two traits. Is there a workaround for this glitch thatís complaint with the challenge rules, or would I need to wait until I can use a Lifetime Reward to remedy this?

Thank you in advance!

@Shmeggo: Do you have a save from right before her birthday? If not you can turn on testingcheats ONLY to assign her the trait you intended to and then turn it back off. Pretty sure we've had to make this call before, you'll be OK.

@Trip: I unfortunately didnít have a save from before her birthday, so I went the testingcheats route to assign the trait and turned it off immediately afterwards. It worked great, and the third trait is now showing up.

 Thanks so much for your help!

Iím back again with another (hopefully) minor issue. Iím still on my first generation, and my founderís age bar has gone back one day. The other household members arenít affected. Since his birthday is supposed to be in one day, although his age bar shows two days away from Adult, am I able to use the birthday cake to age him up on his actual birthday, or is this considered a violation of the rules?

I double-checked his age since he was 21 days from Adult when I started the game and Iím now on Week 3, Day 7 (Saturday). 

Thanks again!

@Shmeggo: since it's only your founder, I'd just wait for his age bar to go to zero days naturally instead of aging him up on his "real birthday". If it happens to an heir later on I'll have to think about it.

Never ever really gave this one a good go.

But the rules makes me wonder about something. Does the line about

Anyone can use Edit Town to place EA-created buildings and lots.

just mean community lots, or can empty EA houses be placed as well? Specifically, I'm thinking the Grandpa's Grove house.

@Deklitch: houses have always been covered under it IMO.
