Haha you're hilarious Leto. That's a good question. I don't have any IF's at the moment except a toddler with one but if it's possible, I guess putting a cursed sarcophagus in would be a must but since we can't control what they do unless they are made real, I don't know if they would sleep in it.

If you could remember the subject of that mail: it was about timetraveling being not possible. Stupid paradox made me unable to proof you wrong. :(

I guess that would be possible if you had the IF and mummy reproduce, because I don't think IF with turn into a mummy if they were to sleep in the cursed sarcophagus because it doesn't work with vampires.

Sleepin in the sarcophagus indeed doesn't work on IF's. You've aniticipated on that correctly. But reproducing... well, that would be the old 'dump-them-in-another-home' way of working I guess. Let's make sure they both are Fertility Threatmented.

I was thinking about the imaginary friend and why they seem to get terrible traits as they age up. In my dynasty game I've gotten four so far and the only one who didn't roll awful traits as a teen and young adult was the one I turned real and could therefore control. The other three all got evil or mean-spirited (and one got both!) and things like clumsy, dislikes children, kleptomaniac, technophobe, and snob. I was wondering if the game treats them like kids who fail school (because they don't go) and therefore pulls from the pool of undesirable traits only.  Has anyone else seen this, or am I just unlucky getting so many rude and annoying imaginary friends?

My two IFs have had good traits so far, only one badish one which was Rebellious.

My IFs all had terrible traits, so I don't want anymore IFs. Traits like: coward, slob, mean-spirited, unlucky, etc. Funny in my last game, there was no IF at birth. Maybe because it was a penthouse and there was no room?

I have 8 Sims and an IF in one house, although there were only 7 when that sim was born and another was born a few hours after.

If you realy don't want a IF put it in the mum ot dad's invetory and it will just stay a doll future generations can play with. Just don't let the owner get a hold of it before he is a teenager :P

Chucky dolls? Haha that's an awful thing to think about!  :D The only IF I have right now is still doll-form as the owner is still a toddler, but when she ages up and the doll becomes an IF, I'll let you guys know the traits.

I love my imaginary friends! I wish there was a setting on the game, I can increase the chance to get one! I love how they walk too. I put on some rap music while they walk just for laughs!  :D

Seriously, why does everyone have to be so mean to their imaginary friends? I love mine!

I love mine too Jeana. Oh, by the way, the IF just aged up and the 2 traits that I know so far are Eco-Friendly and Heavy Sleeper. So unless the 3rd one is evil or something, I got a good one!  ;D

I like them too!   If it helps you any I've been experimenting and so far every time I've had a successful "try for baby" interaction on a Sunday the resulting baby got a doll in the mail.

So far every kid born in one of my families came with an IF.  Just lucky I guess?  I kind of hate them.  The have that silly walk they do around the house and they're attention hogs.

LOL AriaGirl the walk is actually my favorite thing about the IF's. Put on some hip hop and it's perfect!  ;D

Anyways, I'm naming my next one NPH! That's my heir's IF's name ahead of time when he's born! If it's a girl, her name will be Rosie or Pam.

For me, girls have to have girl IF's and boys have to have boy IF's due to the creepiness of falling in love with the IF later in life. However, if both children have an IF, I plan on making the IF's fall for each other when real and have imaginary kids.

What! It's not creepy!  ;D I mean if you think about it your Sim imagined them, thus making them the perfect match in Friendship or further for that sim. Besides they do tend to turn out quite well when turned real.  ;)

Face One is a term I picked up from a legacy I read.
It's basically just the generic face every Sim created randomly by the game gets.

I have a small problem with my IF. Nothing to do with her, she's awesome. But, my girl went to the prom, and I remembered Pam's IF becoming a romantic interest to her kid, and I didn't want that happening, so that night I took her out of her inventory. She went to the prom, and I noticed in her relationship panel was the real sim form. I said oh great. Well, she got home and now the doll is stuck as a doll. I had her pick her up and everything. She will not turn back into her IF form. I closed the game down soon after, so maybe it will be solved when I go back, but has this ever happened to you? If I reset it, will I lose her forever?

Be careful to reset the IF. I did once and the doll was gone, but the IF still show up in the relationship panel. It spoiled the game for me. I think they fixed it in the latest update, but save before you do it. :)

I had an adopted child who recieved one. There's supposedly a small chance that even a child born in-game won't recieve one. I guess the developer felt that it wouldn't be very realistic if everyone had one.  :P
Me to. I had an adopted toddler that recieved one in the mail after a few days.

I just turned the imaginary friend of Sage Rhoen real and hes green like she is! I guess it makes sense that she would imagine him to have the same skin color as hers. Otherwise he has the generic, adoptee features. His traits are Daredevil, Family Oriented & Computer Whiz which are not bad at all.

So if I give my IF a girls name will it automatically be a girl or will it automatically be a boy if I give it a boys name?

I never got a chance to make my friend real yet that's why I'm asking.
