The items you'll are mentioning are items you only can achieve by field trips?

One nice thing about the field trips -- if your teen maxed the xylophone as a toddler and goes on the Theater field trip, he or she gets 3 points in guitar, piano, bass, and drums. I don't know if this is the case for children, too.

Do you mean 3 points on top of the 3 points from maxing the xylophone?

They come home with 3 points in guitar, 3 in piano, 3 in bass, and 3 in drums -- which is pretty good for an afternoon.

But doesn't the xylophone already give them those 3 skill points?  It's been a while since I uninstalled LN, but I know that completing the xylophone gives them 3 guitar skill points as soon as they're old enough to pick up a guitar and play it.  And I do remember that when I had LN my characters were getting that 3-point head start on the other instruments as well, the first time they picked up the instruments.

Yes, that is correct, but I believe Marian meant that a field trip to the theater will give them the points without the need to buy the instrument and make the teen play it. :)

Yes, Chronic, that's what I meant. Actually, that can be a headache if you're trying to supermax one of the instruments.

Exactly. So... -ssh- Dynasty players, never send your teenagers on field trips to the theater if you want them to max out Guitar, Piano, Bass or Drums ;)

After you get a point for one of the instruments (you have to start somewhere if you want to max them all) will your sim get oppertunities at buildings to play there eventhough they can not play the instruments yet, because they're too young?

A little correction to my above post, supermax, instead of max.

About your question, yes, they will get opportunities once they are teenager and have at least one skill point in a music skill.

My little boy just went to a field trip.

He and his teacher were the only ones. No wonder he has no friends. I feel so bad for him.  :-[

Being friend with other kids shouldn't affect how much students come to the field trip, but I may be wrong. Mortimer Goth had zero friends at school except Bella Bachelor yet every kid (Sandi French, Malcolm Landgraab, Sam Sekemoto) came to the field trip at the bistro.

My two child sims went on a field trip to the police station together, and only one (Luna) came home with a souvenir. I had a couple of notifications in the corner about Belle misbehaving on the trip (apparently she locked a police officer in a cell, which I find quite funny because she has the good trait!), so maybe that's why she didn't get a souvenir?

I have been to science lab, police station, theatre and graveyard. I got the "That's for adults" at the police station for one of my kids.

My child went to the theater and got a $500 mirror, then to the graveyard and got a $1000 mysterious Mr. Gnome!

No, they continue to make progress towards an A.

I never send my dynasty kids on field trips at all. They can pick up skills like cooking and fishing as well as the instruments. Unless that's what you have planned for them, it can be a real pain. Oh, and the tendency to get stuck in the hedge outside the science building in SV.

In a normal game I would do the field trips for school performance and objects and skills. But in a dynasty it can be a bit risky.
