Metro, I went back to an earlier save, and I am still having the same problem...I'm going to try a factory reset and see if it helps at all. This might just be a game breaker.

Fingers crossed that it's not. Keep me posted.

I don't see this asked or mentioned anywhere and I was just wondering. Are we allowed to add a pet to the household? And if so are we allowed to take the pet with us when we move?

Yes to both questions. The Townie DecaDynasty is a bit looser than the Immortal one, so I intentionally left pets completely up the Dynasty player and simply did not put them in the rules at all.

Metro,
Permission to go back to an earlier save, please. My sim was pregnant and went into labor during her sister's graduation ceremony. There was also a protest at the same time. She had the delivery moodlet for a bit, then lost that. She is still pregnant - won't go into the hot tub, etc - but has no pregnant moodlet and hasn't given birth in 2 days. I could go to an earlier save and either wait a day to get her pregnant or give the sister a life fruit to delay her graduation a day. Neither sim is the heir - the current heir is a child during this experience.

Yeah, no problem. Go back to an earlier save.

About the editing town rule: Can pet lots (cat jungle, dog park, and other lots that came with pets) be added in say Riverview, SV, BB, or BP? What about the LN Rabbit Hole for the Acting/Directing Career? (I don't see any rule about those lots, and they are in AP).

Can the heir/heiress, or any of the second born to the original townies get a part time job when their teens?

Anyone can use Edit Town to place EA-created buildings and lots.

And yes they can

No sure is this has been asked/answered before, but we are not allowed to start with vampires?
Haha, never mind. They need to become adults in order to move out ;P My bad.

2. No household member can be a vampire. Potential spouses can never have been a former vampire. However, heirs are allowed to move into a house with vampires provided all vampires are moved out the same day the heir moves in.





In the rules!

Can imaginary friends and pets like cats be counted as best friends? Do pets count as part of the household? If so do their best friends count? And do best friends have to be outside of the household? Don't know if any of these have been asked forgive me if so I don't remember reading them.

The original basis for this idea is found here, under the title "Housacy."
I'm not sure if this is a serious coincidence or not xD

It's not the same type of challenge at all.  So I don't know where you got that idea from.  A housacy is based on the style of house.  A decadynasty is a dynasty where you have to fill requirements to move to a new house.  The type of house doesn't matter at all.  It's all about fulfilling the requirements to move and keeping track of the challenges for 10 generations.

I agree.  The rules and expectations are totally different.  The Decadynasty is original to this forum.  The idea for it and the ruleset were developed by Metro.  The Housacy is not in any way "the original basis" for the DecaDynasty Challenge.

Plus...

My thanks to Hosfac and Pam for their editing chops on this rule set. Gheez also deserves a round of applause as she was kind enough to work up a nice spreadsheet for everyone’s benefit. Kudos, guys.

In my experience editing the Let's Build a House! ruleset, you cannot edit a ruleset in 7 days. Especially of this size. The Let's Build a House! ruleset took 12 days to edit, and that's tiny compared to this.

Also, in the housacy thread, you MUST move in to a particular style of house. In this one, Metro couldn't care less if you moved into a farm house or into a modern beach house.

This "Housacy" (that's not even a word) is absolutely not the same thing as our Townie DecaDynasty Challenge.  As others have already said, the rules and objectives are completely different.  Metro had this idea in production for weeks, if not months, before posting the rule set.  We all, especially Metro, take a lot of pride in the fact that the challenges hosted on our Forum are original creations.  It's really not a good idea to imply that anything was copied from the official Forum, as you've probably already guessed from the reactions so far.

Yeah, FYI I had no idea of that challenge's existence. There's bound to be similarities between challenges across the board, but as far as what was the real basis for this event, it was entirely my own idea.

Jeez, I'm really sorry.
I didn't mean to be rude...
I was just pointing it out.
I thought they were similar... I guess it was my bad.

Metro, my whole body is burning with embarrassment.

Honestly, dont worry about it. Everybody makes mistakes. What's done is done and you can't do anything about it now. (well you could delete the post lol).

@Echo, forget about it. No biggie. I was a little sarcastic in my original response to you and after some more thought felt that I was in fact rude to you, so I edited it. No harm done at all.  :)
