Thank you so much- I was hoping to max out Blair's cooking skill, and Stiles is in the medical career. So in theory one of my heirs can later max cooking? Silly questions, I know.

The rules and restrictions only apply to heirs.  Founders aren't heirs, so they can do anything they want. 

They aren't silly questions.  If you need something explained, please always ask.  :)

Phew, I'm grateful for this. The founder is having 5 kids, but I think to keep it simple, future generations will simply have one.

Yeah, 5 kids is a lot and even more challenging when you're playing within the restrictions of a Dynasty.  My founders had only two kids and even that was difficult, but I wanted to try to spread the family through town with various descendants.

I'm playing the Wolffs again and somehow I got messed up and got six kids...two sets of twins right after each other. I love playing the nooboos and families though.

It's a good idea, but if they want more than one kid, one will be booted off to boarding school, ha. I'm going to have my two founders try for triplets. :)

Okay so I know this question has been asked before, so sorry I am asking again but I don't really want to shift through this whole thread.

Anyway for the 10 items, could it be 10 different fish, paintings, sculptures, etc? Or should they not even be in the same category?
If at first you don't succeed, call it version 1.0.

Yes it can be ten different fish or ten different sculptures etc etc. But if you do have ten sculptures for one heir make sure that another heir does not make a collection of sculptures.

Please forgive me if this has been asked before.  Can items conjured from the cauldron (premium EA store item) be counted in the collection of 10 items?  It generally spits out gems, metals, fish, and bugs, and sometimes they are quite valuable (I got a couple of supernovium metals and some soulpeace stones from it recently).  So if I choose to leave a collection of cut gems or metal ingots can I use the ones I get from conjuring?

No, for the same reason that Display table items do not qualify. Check Rule #10.

Do gems from the breaking board count towards the 10 item?

I don't think they'll count as a special collection. Gems are one collection, but how you get them does not matter. For example, gems from the breaking board and gems you find around town wouldn't count as two different collections. Short answer, yes they should count. :)

Okay, thank you.  :)   Would items that cats or dogs find while hunting qualify?  I would think they would be the same as if a sim family member collected the item.

I agree that items found by a pet would count the same as if found by a Sim.

Back to the gems, though.  There's one kind of gem that cannot be used are part of the collection.  If it's a gem that came from the Display Table, it doesn't count.

Do you mean if it was transfigured? So say you transfigured a Gem into a Spire Cut using Tiberiums, that resulting Spire Cut Gem wouldn't count?

Agreed.  I can cut the gems and smelt the metals to increase their value but not transfigure them to get large/special cuts or large ingots, though, right?

Well, you can — it's not like the Display table is banned. You just cannot use it for the purpose of collection items left behind. But, if you want to use it to make valuable items simply to sell — you have the green light.

For anyone thinking of doing a DecaDynasty,  the James family had a baby on day 3 in two games.  Not sure it's because they love each other in story progression or it's like Juanita Blanco of AP.

Union Cove is really annoying me because it's making it really hard to resist a DecaDynasty. I'm just not sure if I have time for it on top of the Legacy and Immortal Dynasty.  8)

I'm assuming this is Lunar Lakes?

Yes - the sentence was supposed to read "For anyone wanting to do a decadynasty in Lunar Lakes."

Sorry fir asking this repeated question, but would it be allowed for me to use that household in AP with Juanita Blanco since they are both already married and she is pregnant?

No you would not be able to use that household.

Thanks for the quick response. Also, would a ghost of someone previously living in the household qualify for an NPC friend? (i.e the ghost of whoever is supplying the tombstone)

I would think so as long as the ghost is not brought back to the active household via the 'Oh My Ghost' opportunity.  At that point they would be controllable and not an NPC anymore.
