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.

@CynKuy:

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.

2. The first named child born into a new house is your DecaDynasty heir.

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

There are three types of tombstones when the grave is outside.
They are based off of how many LTHP a sim has accumulated in their lifetime.
1. The smallest is just the small one that lies on the ground.
2. The medium is not lying on the ground and is medium sized.
3. The largest one is very tall in the air.

I read somewhere (I think in the Dreamweavers) about what LTHP amounts give you which tombstone, but I don't remember what the numbers are off the top of my head.

Wow thank you, I never realized that there were different gravestones before I have just always seen the one that looks like the 'typical' tombstone.

Thank you

I can't remember the exact numbers, but I can say you need to get 75,000 LTHP in total for one sim to receive the medium one. So you should aim to get 75,000+ to guarantee that requirement.

I have completed the requirements for my first heir to move out.  However, I have a question that needs answered before I can do this.  

When I use the phone to have my sim move, and I select his new house, and click make this new house the active household, it says that he is going to take $134,000 with him to this new house.  Is this correct? Is he taking all the cash with him to the new house?

When I moved my heir out, he did not take all the money with him, but this was because his mother and sister stayed in the house. If your heir is the last sim in the house when you move them, then all the money will go with them to the next home. At least I'm 95% sure that's how it works.

Are there any other Sims in the house he is moving out of?

Daemo,
The way to move out with this challenge is to get married to a townie. When you get married, a move screen pops up. Move your heir into the townie's house and be sure to check the "make active family" button. You won't be using "move" on the phone or the computer.

Hello, I have another Question lol.

It says if you spend a whole day on vacation it counts toward your vacation days.  Does this mean if I go only long anough to grab a camera then it doesnt count?

I'm thinking that if they are there for part of a day than it still counts. I'm not positive though.

No. If any Sim shows up at a WA location — even if it's for a couple hours — then it counts against your total allowed.

EDIT: Yeah, I edited the rule. I'm not sure why I chose the original wording "and stays a whole day" because it's too much for players to keep track of partial days here and there.

Hi! A new member here!

I only got Sims 3 last summer so I'm quite a newbie with the game. This challenge intriqued me and I decided to give it a go. And boy, how much I have learned with trying to reach the requirements. So thanks for a great challenge.

But I have a problem now. I played the Drudge couple in Twinbook. Their son filled all the requirements, got married and moved into his wife's home. At this point I saved and just after that I noticed I had forgotten to empty his inventory, which was full of all kinds of fish (he is an angler). So, would you consider that I have failed the challenge now?

I did go back to my previous save (the morning of that same day), emptied his inventory, got him married again and moved once again to the new lot. I would not want to quit the challenge, because of my bad memory. But if you say I failed, so be it.
