Ok I've read the rules for the hundredth time. It said nothing about getting married and then moving out. Does that mean that is not an option? Like if you don't do the move thing when the box comes up you messed up? More so a clarification than a question I guess.

Can you be a little more specific?  I'm not sure what you're asking.

I was under impression that heir must obtain 10 required objects, but when I reread that rule I realized it doesn't:
"10. Heirs must leave behind 10 items (no more) of a particular type in the house. No items left can be from previous households. These items must be a) created, b) found, or c) given to you as freebies/perks as part of a career or being a Celebrity. None of the 10 items can be purchased or made on the Display Table. Each house must have a unique item type. " Maybe the bolded  "you" might change to "household member" to make it more clear.
I started my own Koffi/Hatch decadynasty but won't start the story until I reach first movement and feel comfortable understanding all the rules fully (and see if I can handle that many NPC's). BP is way to difficult for my PC to handle in long run. So far I'm having a blast!

I didn't realize I did two back to back. Sorry about that.

Pam, I was asking if I can get married before I move out. But I'm thinking I answered my own question. You only that box to move out when they get married?

The entire household can work on obtaining the 10 objects required to move.  Is that what you're talking about?

Getting married before moving out wouldn't work.  It's correct that you only get the moving box immediately after the wedding.  If you don't take advantage of it, you won't be able to move into a house occupied by townies unless you use Edit Town, which is banned.  The married couple would have to move to an empty house and that's what doesn't work.

AAAhhh ok got it. It's a use it or lose it kind of thing. Alrighty, I think I have enough data to at least get started. I'm cluless on the property thing though.

So... Who wants to volunteer to help this poor simmer how to post stories? Not now. I'm going to fall asleep in on my laptop any minute. Maybe next week or so. PM me.

Yes, I figured that later. That part was confusing for me a little.
Also, I suppose that objects being different means I can leave 10 Dragon Cave photos in one household, and 10 Pyramids photos in other?

Don't tell her to center the text in her story.  You need to stop doing that, too.  It's inconsistent with the rest of the Forum, untidy, and harder to read.

Don't worry Pam, I stopped centering since yesterday. I didn't know it wasn't allowed before that. So I won't tell her. ::)

Hello everyone. Thanks Chronic and Seabody for taking me under your wing. I am so nervous to start this thing but I'm going to do it tonight.

I have a question about the custom content we talked about yesterday. I don't remember if it was this thread of the Immortal Dynasty thread but I assumed it would apply to both. Custom content is what other simmers create right? Does that mean that the items I get for free and/or simpoints is not considered custom content third party? Since it is from the Sims Store? Not to be confused with the Sims 3 exchange. I figured the exchange was third party because our fellow simmer create them. Is that right? Am I confusing enough for you guys?  :D

Anything from the Store or the Exchange is fine. It's all use at your own risk. As always, modifications are not allowed.

Ok good. I made the silly mistake of going to the store before I started my game. And I was confused on the whole furniture prices and all that stuff. I don't particularly care for mods. Haven't used them since TS2 and didn't want to install them by mistake.

Thanks for clarifying Metro. I'm off to try this thing out. Now which townie...

EDIT: Wait what about Riverview? Can we use Riverview? Or is that considered not an 'original' neighborhood?
