Thank you! I really do feel terrible.
I'm just going to leave it up as a reminder not to be stupid.

Is there a FAQ page where we can go to keep track of rule changes that come with each expansion pack? Because I got pets and I'm playing with a family in that neighborhood (I had to start over because my computer crashed. Again.) and... I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything. I tend to miss questions even after reading/scanning through all of the pages.

Also, is it okay to have the townie family be engaged and not yet married?

You're not missing anything. All Pets content is already covered in the rule set on p.1. If it's not specifically covered, then assume you can do whatever it is you're wondering about. But, always feel free to ask. :)

Also, is it okay to have the townie family be engaged and not yet married?

Yes.

At the moment, it's probably impossible to set a Townie DecaDynasty in Appaloosa Plains as there are only 7 buildings that can be bought. Even if you add the pet store (which not everyone has) and the film studio, which requires LN, the most you can get is 9. Since you lose ownership of the buildings each time you move, I'm wondering if it would be possible for a subsequent generation to buy one of the doubled-up buildings?  For example, Gen 1 could buy the book and bath building as a bookstore and Gen 5 could buy it as a spa.

If you ask me,not that anyone did, you should be allowed to do just that. So long as each generation buys a building it really shouldn't matter that it is technically the same building.

When brought up, I think it was mentioned about placing buildings from Community Objects onto lots after purchased to meet the requirement.  There are also lots from Town Life Stuff Pack.  Otherwise, I'm fairly certain metro said you can only buy a particular place once in the way that you're speaking of though.  It was right after Pets came out when it was mentioned that we only had 7 buildings so I don't remember how many pages ago that was.

There's nothing in the rules stating that all building purchases need to be unique, so with the fact that you do lose ownership after a move — it's really not an issue at all for Appaloosa Plains.

I don't see why not.  My gifts weren't as large as that, but I've been selling them if I don't have a use for the item.

If you are lucky enough to get the fountain of youth as a gift then you should do whatever you want with it.How many other wedding presents did you get,because if you have ten presents I would be tempted to save them and use them as your ten unique items. You would get a really big score then. Of course if you really need that money then sell it.

 I think my Sims need to get richer friends they only seem to get cheap wedding presents.

Thanks Pam

ratchie, let me look in my inventory and count. I know on the day after the wedding, they received 5 gifts and the foundation was one of them. I was floored. I have never received a gift of that price. When I shut down last night the mail had just ran and needs to be checked. I didn't realize we could use the wedding gifts as the unique items.

If you don't have ten items you could always have a spare get married and keep their presents too.

Thanks for that little tip. All I need is 2 more gifts.  I'm still trying to figure out why on earth they give The Speedy Pole as a gift? LOL So my 10 items are off to a GREAT start with generation 1.  8)

The good thing is you will probably end up with more then ten so you can choose the most expensive items. In my last Sim wedding they got a rusty old tractor of the cat. My husband said I should consider myself lucky because the only gifts cats usually give are dead birds.

I made a discovery yesterday that might help people with the NPC requirement. I found out that if you ring an NPC and invite household over you get a list of all the NPCs in the game. It makes meeting NPCs a lot easier. It doesn't tell you what their jobs are but it is start.

Way to go, Rachel! That's very useful for people who aren't playing in Sunset Valley, or for subsequent generations.

Metro, in my Deca I've bought a moodlet manager for each of the sims. I first bought one for my heir then whenever I needed another sim to use it a sent it to a different sim. When my heir moves, does it matter which Moodlet Manager he takes?
