Mine is in Appaloosa, I just haven't posted it here yet.  It is just on my blog for now.

That's great! Happy to see you're playing in Appaloosa, hope you can do well ;)
I'm planning to play with "Sports, Spice and everything nice" household. They seem to be a nice couple for starting the dynasty.

You cannot use the sports spice and everything nice household because Juanita starts the game pregnant and you are not allowed to use families that already have children or are known to be pregnant. Plus Juanita has the dislikes children trait which can make things difficult.

I started with Gracie Lovelace.  She comes with just a kitty.

Thanks, I haven't made it too far into the challenge yet, the Holidays and an Eye infection has caused me some issues the past month.

I was playing my decadynasty when something very odd happened. I was watching my heir play her gutiar and suddenly the loading screen appeared and said traveling to france. When it loaded I
it was just my founders. Then after trying to figure out what was happening for only seconds the other loading to go home screen came up. Does this count as a vacation day no bigy if it does but I hope it does not.

That is bizarre. No, sounds like a glitch. Don't worry about counting it. In fact, you may want to go back to an earlier save if you did indeed save after that glitch. You may have locked in a unknown bug.

That's a good choice. I hope your eye never gets infected again, just take care of yourself beside playing Sims  ;D. ( isn't that Gracie Loveland, btw? )

You're right, Rachel. Thanks for reminding me  :)
I've got a plan B, though. Benjamin Schmidt's going to be a good founder for this dynasty as well.  :D

Loveland / Lovelace (at least I got close) - that is part of the "can't focus" from the eye infection  ::)  And unfortunately these are common due to my contacts, one of my side effects that I deal with since I won't give up wearing them permanently. :-\

Benjamin is who I chose for Gracie's spouse.   ;D

Gracie and Benjamin are my favorites in Appaloosa. The only annoying thing is their LTW ( Heart Breaker ). I'm gonna have to spend those happiness points on changing that. Eww..!  ;D

I've got a question about this Townie DecaDynasty- can sims move to a house for a second time?
I mean, if sim A (current heir ), moves from house A to B, can the second heir born in house B go back to house A afterwards?
And sorry, I'm not so good at English  ::)

Yes, there's nothing preventing you from having future heirs live in houses you have already been in — i.e. an "all houses must be different" kind of rule.

Thanks, Metro. The special items have to be removed then? Or do they count as special items for the next move?
Sorry for asking too much.

Each collection of 10 items has to be different. I don't suppose you have to remove the items, you just can't count their values again.

No problem. Yeah, if you left 10 paintings in house #1 to get to house #2, and you wind up in house #1 again at some point you cannot use those 10 paintings again to help you qualify to get to the next house.

Thanks. Starting now. Wish I could start this in UC, but I couldn't install it since I don't have Outdoor living and Fast Lane.  :-\

You should be able to install it even if you are missing Stuff Packs, as the game should just replace the OLS and FLS items with other similar items. Maybe you could find some help for your issue over on the Union Cove thread?

That's what I thought. But it just won't install.
And I've already posted my problem on its tread, thanks  :)

My founder is almost ready to give birth, and I've got a big question at this point.
Am I free to choose traits for the heir, or will I have to randomize?

You are allowed to choose the traits.

This sounds like it's really hard, but I'll try it one day though.

I have a question more about game mechanics than actual decadynasty rules.  How do you meet all the NPCs?  For some of them like pizza delivery guy, mixologist, ghost, etc. it is really straight forward, but others have me stumped.

For example, is there a way to meet a social worker/adoption person without adopting?  How do you meet a repo man?  These are things that I've just never encountered in game before. 

If my questions are too close to discussing challenge strategy and shouldn't be answered on the forum, is there anyone who would be willing to PM me about this?

Thanks very much!

All Dynasty strategy and advice flows freely right here. No worries.

That is the one thing that puts me off the DecaDynasty is that I'm useless as socialising (In Sims and in real life, Lol) although I think someone posted a really handy tip somewhere, they met a NPC and when they clicked on the picture in the relationships tab there was an option to invite the household over, then all the NPC's turned up or something.

Well, if you haven't met a repo-man than don't pay the bills once and one will come over.
Some of the NPCs can be hard to find that's why I've stuck to a basic set of 10.

EDIT: samoht, it shows a list of all NPCs that you can choose from since there are so many.
