Yes to both.  However they become supernatural, the meeting, wooing and woohooing should be as cheaty-free as possible.  The categories are in no way mutually exclusive (beyond one man fathering two pregnancies) so changing the husband to a supernatural to fulfill an additional slot is fine as long as he's supernatural at conception.

Just a curiosity that struck me while playing in Zheena's file (she's up to M now!!), since a plantsim counts as an offspring, would clone (in the way of the science machine thing) count as well?  Seems they're both along the same lines, so I wasn't sure why it wouldn't unless it's because the plantsim is a lifestate and clone is not?

So, since plantsims count as babies, do clones from the science machine thing also count?  Loving this challenge, by the way.  Baby "P" is currently in utero!!
Also, just a strategy tip, I try to always keep my household full so when a kid graduates and moves out, I only have one spot for a new member.  This helps avoid twins and triplets!

Hmmm.  I don't think clones should count.  It's the father that counts, so to have a father who was a clone, you'd have to level up in science, then clone someone, which would add a baby to your household.  You'd have to raise the baby, then use him as a father.  Which would go against the rules of adding people to your household.  Unlike the imaginary friend and the genie, who exist as inactive non-household members until you make them active, the cloned child would be active the whole time.  It also just doesn't seem special enough to warrant adding it to the supernatural cluster.  What if you cloned Christopher Steel?  No big deal.

No to a cloned child counting for one of the 26, too.  No woohoo, no pregnancy.  No relationship to build and maintain, nothing challenging about that but the time invested.  It would have fit very well in the TS2 rules, but since the TS3 rules really focuses on collecting fathers, I think that one's out.

Fair enough.  I just figured since the plantsim was unconventional in the lack of a father, the clone seemed to fit in the same category.  I suppose clone is not a life state, so to speak, so that makes some sense.

Yeah, you said that much more succinctly than I managed.   ;D  I think it's the life state portion that sticks the most.

I read this a long while ago, but I feel ready to try it soon as a break while working on my Immortal Dynasty. The elders are starting to drive me a little bonkers....time to let a bunch nooboos do that instead.

Actually, I've had a few different Sims successfully court and woohoo Sims at uni, and the try for baby option has always come up.  If you're not getting those options, maybe you need to try at a different location or just lead the other Sim nearer to a bed so you can do the "relax" "cuddle in bed" "try for baby" chain of actions.  In my WYD game, Zheena got pregnant by one of the professors.  I used the chain listed above to make that happen.  Hope that helps.

Nope.  Straight up base game is in effect for the WYD.  I didn't even have story progression going at that point.  It should show up just like it does for the WA locations.  She won't start to show or have sickness until she returns home, though.  It's possible the game just didn't boot properly.  Perhaps quitting the file and then restarting it would help?  Zheena couldn't conceive at one point (about 18 kids in) and I was terrified that the file was ruined.  However, I quit the file, then started it up again several days later and she conceived right away.  I'd definitely try restarting it if you haven't already.

I am thinking of giving this a try :)

Anyway, I tried my hand at coming up with a Spreadsheet for this, using Google Sheets. The link to my effort is in the link below. I've marked it is as unofficial, because I'd rather it get 'approved' by CSquared.

Nice spreadsheet. I had this info scrawled on a piece of paper, meaning to create a spreadsheet, but hadn't got around to it yet. Thanks!

I like it.  Let me get Jenn to look at it, too.  I think she's much better at spotting the small "oops, this is missing" stuff.

This looks really good.  You did forget Law Enforcement under the job cluster, but that does seem to be the only thing missing.

Do you have any interest in doing the formulas for the scoring?  I am horrid at math and was forever getting my score incorrect.

You can always head back home and invite your Uni choice over for a visit, that's what I had to do.  I have never had the TFB option at Uni show up.

No problem.  We have to do our best with the imperfect product at our disposal.   ;)

If our sim is a witch, could we still have the lifespan bonus?
