I think my apartment's elevator is stuck, though the doors are not open.  The maid can't get up, and my heir tried to go school but couldn't get there due to the elevator.  Now it's time for the adults to go to work, and they are all just standing there, waiting for the elevator that never comes.

Can I please have permission to use buydebug to buy a new elevator, and see if that fixes the problem?

For one of the collections would it be alright to grow an omni plant feed it books and have the books as the collection. I know that feeding it a book we have bought from the book store probably wouldn't count as that is not something that has been grown,found,given or made but how about say a book that our Sims have found/stolen from base camp while on vacation.

Sure, that collection sounds like a good idea, Rachel.

This is confusing me a little.  I'm not aware of an official collection of books that would qualify for being left behind.  It's not the same as butterflies or gems where we know what's in the collection.  How will this work with books and the Omni plant?

Rachel's talking about feeding an Omni plant books that have been found or stolen and having the resulting book "fruit" count as a collection. So, as long as the books fed to the plant are not bought, she's fine.

I'm sorry if this has been asked before and I just didn't see it...

Can presents from other sims (outside of the household - such as wedding presents) count as a collection for your heir to leave behind?

Thank you!

Sure, why not? Lol. The more categories for possible collections the better.

A couple more questions. The heirs have to supermax a skill does that mean other heirs cannot max the same skill. I am thinking purely in terms of careers as I might run out of career options if I cannot max Athletics more then once.

Second question would inventions count as a collection.

Third question the ten NPC friends do they have to be friends with the family at the time of the heir moving or can we collect them as the heir goes through his/her life. On the same subject how do we know if the NPC is a science geek.

Thanks in advance.

Right. The SuperMax requirement means that skill is unique to the heir.

Yes.

It all comes down to having moving requirements fulfilled at moving time just like in the Immortal Dynasty it all comes down to eating Ambrosia for the first time. Same deal.

Is using the potions from the chemistry set allowed for DecaDynasty as well as Immortal challenges?

Anything that has the potential to extend life would be banned for heirs in the DecaDynasty. In the Immortal Dynasty once an immortal has eaten Ambrosia then they're free to do minor things such as tattoos or makeovers, but some of the new Generation stuff would eliminate the need of eating Ambrosia altogether, so that is not allowed — i.e. the age freeze thing. Non-heirs in the DecaDynasty are free to do whatever tricks they want. Immortal Dynasty non-immortal household members still cannot prolong lifespan.
