Metro, I think you missed Gogowars' last question.  I'm not comfortable answering it.  Actually, I forgot the answer.

I deleted my last post to avoid contradicting myself because after giving the whole vampire issue some more thought — I'm relaxing the rule. Vampirism spreads like a plague through a town and I can actually see someone failing their DecaDynasty due to not being able to move into a vampire-free home. That would be stupid. I'm holding firm on no vampire spouses — even if you could immediately cure them — it's a no go. Vampires/former vampires cannot be spouses. But, I'm willing to allow heirs to move into a house where anyone but the potential spouse could be a vampire provided all vampires are moved out the day the heir moves in. I'm off to edit the rule now.

@Metro:

Have you asked Carl to put the DecaDynasty rules on the Guide with the Immortal Dynasty rules?

I did when I originally posted them here, but I will remind him.

Hi... first up, I think this is a cool dynasty challenge, although I confess to having to read every page of this forum topic to fully understand the rules.

I started my Dynasty last night, but I kinda made a slip up... I'd turned 'Aging Off' for a previously loaded game, and assumed it would be automatically re-enabled with a new game, but apparently not; I didn't realize until two days after my first heir was born. I'm going to have to start again, aren't I?  :-[

BTW, since this is my first proper attempt at a challenge, what are BlackOps exactly? I get that they refer to Opportunities in careers, school etc., but what makes them BlackOps, as opposed to regular Opportunities?

BlackOps are purely a term. There is no difference - Only the fact that there is a game call Call of Duty: BlackOps. Also, it's a military term. Metro recently defined this in the Immortal Dynasty thread.

This is a challenging challenge but it lots of fun! I know from experience!

Adding on to what Seabody said, a BlackOp in this challenge is a normal opportunity. Although, each heir needs to complete 10 different Oportunities that no other heir has completed before they can move.
Example: Sim A has completed the Unclog Pipes opportunity. No other heir can do that opportunity.
Edited to include correct information.

Yes, you'll have to start again, this time with the proper aging setting.

Adding on to what Seabody said, a BlackOp in this challenge is a normal opportunity. Although, each heir needs to complete 10 different Oportunities that no other heir has completed before they can move.
Example: Sim A has completed the Unclog Pipes opportunity. All the other heirs can do that opportunity but not add it to their BlackOps.
(Metro Man: Correct me if I'm wrong)

This is incorrect.  If an heir does the Unclog Pipes opportunity as one of his BlackOps, no other heirs can do that opportunity at all.

Good question. It's 10 different NPC professions.

My first heir moved but had multiple repair technicians as friends as I didn't know about this rule. Does this mean I have to restart?

If the rule was unclear to you then I guess it's partially my bad. Just make sure it's 10 different NPC professions from now on. I'll edit that rule for clarity.

Thank you so much!
EDIT: Can you have an heir leave behind 10 spirits from the Ghost Hunter Career? Also if your heir is a gardener, could they leave behind money bags?

Great minds think alike. I too thought of Agnes at first, actually. ;D
Must be because Agnes is in the center of the picture in the first page.

Sorry I missed your edited questions from earlier, Gogo...but the answer to both is yes.

Metro, can you have sims move into the house? As in have your starting pair ask someone to move in. I'm asking as my heir and her husband are elders and they only just had kids and if they'll die and I'll lose control and my decadynasty will end.
