It looks like there's a new NPC in Showtime -- the venue proprietor. Can this be added to the list? And I suppose another collection might be objects thrown to a Sim performing on stage, not necessarily rotten onions, but teddy bears, flowers, etc.

Another Showtime-related question:  would it be okay to replace the juice bars in the venues with the ones from Late Night?

Fireflies are also a new collection as well that could probably be put on the list.

Are fireflies separate from butterflies and beetles?  There are many different kinds?

Sure

If it means adding an exception to the Edit Town rule, I'd rather not.

Done.

Blanchflower brought them up on several posts but one is under General Discussion on this thread here.   They are a separate challenge under the Collecting Skill Journal now.  I collected eight of them and was told that I had 100% via the journal.

Well one of them could provide the tombstone so it is a good idea to get them a lot of LTH points. They can help provide the ten items that have to be left behind this is especially helpful if you decided to leave behind ten paintings as they increase in value when the original artist dies.

They can also have another child, who can help with making friends, especially if you have that child get high points in charisma.

You can hire professionals over the phone who are either a DJ, Acrobat, Singer or Magician. Would these count as NPCs?

What if you dont have the expansion packs to have some NPC's. Do you HAVE to buy them or something?

And everyone, thanks....

No, the list of NPC's in the rules are ALL that qualify. You pick and choose from what is available in your particular game given your expansions.

Are genies allowed as spouses for spares. I know it is a no for heirs as they have to marry a townie. But saying that could a former heir reproduce with a genie once they have completed all their tasks,moved and brought forth the new heir.
Also I am assuming that any genies would be permitted to move out of the house the same as any other household members.

IMO allowing genies in the house at all would conflict with the existing vampire and mummy rule. They all fall under the same umbrella.

Okay, so I was playing another save, turned freewill off for a bit, and then forgot that it was off and played my decadynasty for a while. Would this disqualify me?

Phew! I thought that I was about to have ended a dynasty in the dumbest way possible. ::)

EDIT:
I have another stupid question: can we start with a Bridgeport household with vampires in it as long as we kick the vampires out? For example, could we start with the Talon and Striker household, kick out Jessica, and do a dynasty with Raefeal (not actually what I plan to do)?

From the rules:

Quote
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.

I think it would be ok to do it with the original founder, but be sure to kick out the vampires the very first day.  Raefeal is not a vampire, right?

Nope, but he was just an example, anyways. I actually want to do a Chique dynasty, because Lily-Bo's got fun genes and a nice-sized apartment, but one of her roommates is a vampire. XD Thanks for the answer! ^^

Quick question about travel restrictions:

Abbie, my second gen, has already taken a three day holiday with her sister which I know counts for six days against the total. She's also just been to France for a school opportunity. She went for a three-day trip but came home early after only the first day, so does that mean I count the whole three days or can I just count the day which she stayed for (she left before midnight). It's not a massive deal if I have to count the lot as I'm way inside my total considering gen 1 didn't travel, but it'd be nice to save the days for my future martial arts heir.

It's just one day counted if she was the only one who went.

I have one more question: We can do multiple of this, right? I want to scrap my immortal dynasty and do a second decadynasty, because decadynasties are fun. XD
