I'm not sure if this has been answered before, but I've skimmed through the other pages.

Each household is allowed 10 days vacation. Vacation can be accrued and passed on to the next household. So, if you never take a vacation in your starting house, when you begin playing your 2nd house, you then have 20 days vacation available. For every Sim that goes on vacation that counts against the vacation total—i.e. 3 Sims go on vacation for 3 days = 9 vacation days.

I was wondering if the time off for maternity leave + marriage counted as vacation? It sounds like this only applies to people with the World Adventures expansion pack but I wanted to double check. Now that I"m typing this out, though, it sounds like the vacation thing is totally separate. XD

It only applies to vacations taken with World Adventures.  Maternity and marriage leave aren't vacation days.

I'm actually about to buckle down and get through this as fast as I can. I'm taking my time with the Immortal Dyanasty, so I figured I'd get the Townie one done quickly. I'm about to move generation 2 out and start the third. The first generation is the tricky one - once that is done it goes by much easier. maybe I'll be the first in the HOF for this one...

A quick question concerning the 'heir born within ten days.' If one of the sims is pregnant in the beginning, and she moves in with the father before the baby is born, is that child the heir? Or does the heir need to be conceived when they are both living together?

Auden, The rule states:
1. Heirs must be the result of two Sims living in a household Trying For Baby and must be born within 10 days of starting in a new Townie house.

So to answer your question the Sim has to get pregnant once your two founders are living together. If a Sim is already pregnant at the beginning of the game then they cannot be used for this challenge.

Okay, that's what I thought, but I wanted to make sure.

I don't think this has been asked but can you have a collection of Ice Sculptures for Generation 2 and say for Generation 5 you have a collection of Wood Sculptures?

I think probably not because if we could do that, we could also have a collection of Death Fish for one generation and then a collection of Vampire Fish for another.  Same with gems and many other things.  I feel that we are supposed to have unique items for each generation.  Metro, please correct if I'm wrong.

Nope. You're right, Pam. Sculptures are sculptures, no matter the type, so you would not be able to call two different type of sculpture collections unique objects.

Right. You just could not have Rainbow Butterflies in one collection and a different type in another collection because it's all butterflies — the same type of object.

Metro,I wonder if you should make an amendment to the birthday cake rule I was thinking maybe changing this:
4. Birthday cakes can only be used on actual birthdays.
to this:
4. Birthday cakes can only be used on actual birthdays.(This means all Sims,including those not under the players control)

No. I think it's been way too short a time, because Samoht just completed his Legacy which has been going on since around August last year.

It was January 10th 2010, officially.  ;)

Just so everyone knows it won't take you two years to finish this for sure. I have the worst history with my Legacy. I have had months of not playing it and could have done it in under a year for sure, maybe even 6 months if I had steamed ahead. Sorry to go off topic but I just wanted to mention that after the discussion about me on the other page.

No one should be using cakes on non household members anyway, but I will make that clear. Thanks, Rachel.

Sorry , but the deadline to sign up for these challenges was yesterday.

No I'm just kidding. You don't need to sign up for the immortal dynasty or townie decadynasty challenges.

For the others, only the tournament finale is left, but you can participate in that one if you send a pm to metro stating your intent to participate.

There are so many pages, I am unaware if this has been asked already:

My 2nd heir is a fisherman, and I took him to china in order to complete the supermax of his fishing skill.  While he was there he received a vacation opportunity called    Seeking Adventure?    Does this count as one of the unique opportunities?

No, it does not.  Those are vacation Adventures and don't count toward the opportunities you receive in your home town.

One more question. My sim will be moving soon and both his parents died.   He has $110,000 on him that will be transferred with him when he marries and moves. Is this ok?

He's the only one living in the house, right?  I'm actually not certain the money will transfer with him, but I think so.  If it does, then yes, it's ok because that's just how the game handles it.  If you don't mind, let us know after he moves whether the money transferred with him.

Also, welcome to our Forum.  :)

Ha!  Another question.   My angler supermaxed his fishing.  But I still need 4 more opportunities, can he quit his job and get a new one and hope more opportinities come quick?
