Well, if I move in Renauld then he will be my tombstone, not Jewel.  I was thinking I might have her visit the tattoo artist to make a friend and also to live a bit longer than her hubby, that way she can be my relationship builder and I can focus on skill building with the baby.

I think I may have come up with some good strategies for preserving friendships for later households but there isn't much you can do about friends aging and dying.

Then Renauld would be good for his money but not his friends. My way to friends is to not start til the heir is a young adult, and then throw parties everyday. Either that, or get someone to play guitar a lot in public.

@VampirePlasma:

They are not stupid questions, so please hush up about that.  Your questions are just as good as everyone else's and they need to be asked.  :)
I just feel like it's easy enough to understand but I just can't.  :)

As far as ghosts go, I think you'd be okay to be friends with any ghost, even one of your tombstone providers. Metro might think otherwise though, but I don't see that in the rules anywhere.

Nope, ghosts are definitely okay.

Can we use the unlockOutfits On cheat? What about any other CAS cheats to change a premade townie's appearance? (give them a tan, unlock Ambitions hair, etc).

EDIT: I'm asking if I take Thornton to the Mirror, can I use the cheats to give him the Justin Bieber hair in Ambitions for example.

I have a few questions.

Can the other members of the family complete any opportunities they want?
Quote
6. Heirs must complete 10 unique Opportunities (BlackOps) that no other heir has completed. These can be Career, Skill, or Special Opportunities.

Can other family members max out and supermax skills without restriction?

Also does the Founder have to complete any requirements other than the birth within ten days and both parents living in the house?

Ops: Non-heirs can, I believe.
Maxing: Non-heirs can, I believe.
Founder: I believe not.

You don't need cheats to change Thornton's hair using the mirror.  If the Justin Bieber hair is installed in your game, you can use it.

The non-heirs can do whatever they want.  It's only the Heirs that need to keep track of unique skills, opportunities, careers, etc.

Is the Founder considered an heir for the sake of maxing skills and completing opportunities?

I just remembered I asked the exact same question on Page six! Pam said, and I quote:
The founder doesn't have to move at all.  The moving requirements start with the first heir.

The only things your founder has to worry about is producing the heir and possibly providing the tombstone requirement. I say possibly providing the tombstone because you could move an elderly Sim in to provide this.

Is life extending forbidden for founders? Also, is the second heir the second born to the founders or firstborn to the heirs?

This is clearly written in the rules on the first page.

I have been a fan of the sims for a long time, and I have been playing for several years.  However, I never really went very deep into the game until I discovered this website.  It really has brought the sims into a whole new light for me. 

I am interested in attempting this challenge, but one thing has me very confused.  I was wondering about the tombstone rule.  I really don't understand what this requirement means.  When my sims die of natual death, they either get an urn when the grave inside or a tombstone when the grave is outside.  Can you please explain to me what you mean by :

"Heirs must acquire a short, rounded tombstone or the larger obelisk resulting from the natural death of a household member. The ground plaque does not qualify (the smallest size). Tombstones must be placed on the lot before moving."

Thank You,
Daemo
