This Dynasty should not be an issue at all. Rule #2 already covers things nicely. With the Immortal Dynasty I need to edit the ruleset for a specific starting lot. samo gave me that information.

You might want to add that we can use edit town to put in the book corral at the library.  It currently just says that Bridgeport and Twinbrook players can do that.

Thank you, I just did. :)

Also, after samo gets back to me this weekend with specifics on the Hidden Springs fountain I will edit rule #1 under Additional Restrictions to include any life extending benefits of the fountain. Aside from that, I'm not sure if the new town needs any other attention in the rules. (Thanks for your assistance, samo)

You're welcome Metro.  :)

EDIT: Forgot to say this but HS is going to have one bug for sure, the one where Townies spawn loads of cars (Is it normally big lemons) because on almost every Community in HS there are about 6 Parking Spaces including Rabbit Holes.

I have been hit by an aging bug again. Cassidy was two days from adulthood and she reset back to the begining of young adulthood. Hector aged up to elder with no problems but he started of as an adult. I have been checking the newspaper and Elderly Sims are passing away and babies are being born.Toddlers,children and teens appear to be aging as normal. It looks like it might just affect young adults.
Would it be allowed for me to go to edit town and see if any of the other townies are affected.

Rachel

Edit:Ignore me my brain hurts Cassidy had aged up to adult without me realising and was at the begining of adulthood. I think I might need to take a break from playing.

So just to double check -- heirs -don't- have to have completed a unique LTW to move, correct?

It doesn't say that they have to complete their LTW in the rules so I would say that your heir can move without completing their lifetime wish.

Really? I've read the rules like 10 times, and thanks to the Immortal Dynasty, I just always assumed the wish had to be completed! But you're right! Just had to read it an eleventh time. ;)

It kind of makes sense that you don't have to complete a LTW before moving. A few LTW would be very difficult to achieve before moving gold digger and raise five children spring to mind.

That's why I wanted to double check -- I was thinking of the Immortal Dynasty too. :)

I'm hoping you haven't answered this already, but if we started the challenege in one place and we get HS, can we move to a new file?  If I save the family and the house they are in?

Nope. That's not an approved use of Edit Town.

Just to double check, NPC's are totally out of the question for marriage, since they don't really have a house, right?
The forum rules are like a towel; don't forget them.

And now it's time for one last bow, like all your other selves. Eleven's hour is over now, the clock is striking Twelve's.

There's probably some convoluted way to get moved to a new house and marry an NPC as completely separate actions, but it would be nearly impossible unless a townie invites you to move in.  There are plenty of townies to marry without considering an NPC.

Pam's right. There are definitely enough townies to consider. But if you were dead-set on marrying an NPC (say, for genetic reasons) you'd have to first marry a townie to move into their new house, then divorce/"Break Up" with them.  Then you can marry that NPC and have him/her move in with you. The ex-spouse will still live there, I think, but you can move him/her out. And in the end, you would still technically be in a new townie home, but you could still be with the NPC.

I have a question pertaining to written books. Say I want to leave 10 books as my collection. Am I only allowed to use the free copy that comes in the mail? Or can I go to a foreign area, order another copy from a computer, bring it home, and count that book towards the collection? Me theory is that traveling will increase the value of the book upon returning home.

Didn't work. They're still the same value when returning home. :/ On the same topic, I've noticed that over time, the value of the written books depreciate. Are we allowed to purchase new ones via the computer just before moving so that we can count them at full price when tallying the simolean amount? I still have the original free copies in a bookshelf, just in case.

Doesn't matter to me one way or the other as long the collection is completed before moving.

Hi... I've been stalking this site since it started pretty much, as I bought sims 3 on release, but now that my graduate degree is finished, I'm all up ins.

My eyes started watering on page 3, so I apologize if this has been asked, but should we "enable story progression"? Do move-ins count as townies? Or is this option to be turned off for the challenge?

Looking forward to finally participating. It's my present to myself for not running off a cliff during the past 3 years along with Adult Furniture.

Welcome to the forum! I cant answer all of your questions but I can tell you that yes, story progression has to be on at all times.

I also welcome you to the forum, and I hope you enjoy your stay. I understand that this thread is very long, so I don't blame you for not reading it all lol. As Sportsfan said, yes Story Progression needs to be on. I'm not exactly sure why you would ask your second question, though. For this challenge, the townie part of it all is that upon moving to the next household you need to move your heir into a new house. The easiest way is by marrying a townie--someone in the game who lives in a house in your town--because then you will have the option to move into their home once the couple gets married. However, if over the course of the challenge you wish to have someone move in with you, there is no reason that this person has to be a townie, but moving anyone in needs to follow the moving in/out rules.

3. There are no restrictions to moving Sims in or out of the household, except as stated below:

    Once a Sim leaves the household, he/she may never be invited back into the household of an active heir.
    Sims from the previous household may not move in with a later heir, either when he/she moves or after the fact.
    The heir must remain within the household until they have completed the requirements to move.
    The only items Heirs can move with are Career Rewards and Lifetime Happiness Rewards that they earn themselves. No other objects.

If you could please explain exactly or specify more what you mean by a "move-in," we could probably help you more.

Welcome to our Forum, saiye.

Sportsfan is correct.  Story Progression must be turned on.  I just looked at the rules again myself and didn't see it mentioned and it probably should be.  Metro, would you mind looking into this?

Anyway, saiye, if what you mean by "move-ins" is the new people who move to town as the game progresses, yes they are counted as Townies as long as they occupy a house somewhere in town.

I'm a little confused about your reference to Adult Furniture.  What exactly do you mean?

And lastly, I made some changes to your post to correct for grammar and punctuation.  You might want to take a look at the Forum Rules again to understand expectations for posts made here.  Thanks very much and I hope you enjoy this DecaDynasty.  I hope to start mine soon, too.  :)

Ahah, it was a poorly worded joke (having my entire post capitalized correctly sort of kills the effect.) Thanks for the tips.
