Ok... Starting to become clearer. :) So even after earning a platinum orb the sim will still age up and die allowing me to pass it onto Julie or do I just use it to pause her at anytime after the other sim earned it? And then the earning sim will gain a new life dream but will still continue to age?

I think you can go ahead and assign it. Try clicking on the age controller. Find Julie. Hit the pause button. You should be able to scroll through to the platinum orb and assign it to her.

Thanks! You all are so helpful!! I would never have figure this out without this forum. :)
I'm not quite there yet, but I have 3 Sims that have earned their bronze orbs & are nearing life end and then have several more up to 99+% on their life dreams just hanging out and waiting to receive the orbs of their loved one. I really still hate that Sims have to sacrifice their lives I order to save others but I have created several new sims just for this purpose since I wasn't at my max sims when this death cycle started.

Thanks for all the useful info on this thread. I've been able to get the IceApe Arcade using orbs.

Now 2 of my adult sims have reached the end and are ready to pass their bronze orbs to other sims. But for the life of me, I can't find the way to so this! Pls help me thru step by step that my feeble mind can understand. :-)

I also tried to reverse the life of an adult sim for 18LPs. But no new life dreams show. It's still the same message that says he has completed his life dreams, etc. should he get a new life dream?

I just had 2 of my Sims reach the end of their life, the grim reaper came and got them and they passed onto the sim afterlife. Unfortunately one of them was a senior who I just started on their bronze orb and didn't earn it which was no big deal, so she just died and passed away. But the The other had earned a bronze orb, and when he died he was outside and it simply left the orb lying in the grass. To assign the orb to another Sim I just clicked on it, and it came up with a list of all of my living Sims and I just chose the one from the list to pass it onto. This Sim was 90% towards their own bronzed bronze orb, so when I gave him the completed bronze orb it's now shows he's 90% towards his silver orb, which is really nice.

No, once a Sim has completed their life dream and earned their orb, they can't get a new lifedream or earn any higher orb, the only way to pass that or onto another Sim is to have the Sim pass away.

I only reversed one Sim from aging, and that was because she was the Sim that received the life orb earned from the original set of death goals. She had advanced to a senior and so was ready to die, but was working toward a gold orb so I didn't want her to die with that uncompleted. So by reversing her lifestage to the beginning of the senior stage, it's allowing her more time to work towards that gold orb.

You can also use completed orbs that are still with a living Sim to build the new community lots, or to pause the ageing of a Sim. If you do this, the Sim whose orb was used gets a new life dream, and can create another orb if there is enough time.

OKay Folks!

When your sims are fulfilling their dreams and look really tired, even though they are healthy, click Osiris :mrgreen: and click reminisce!!!

they get back to the way they were!

Im a friend of Allison and im typing this, you should thank her for that- it is saving a lot of time!!

All this info is so helpful! One of my sims died and left behind a bronze orb. When I tap it to give it to a living sim, only some of my sims are there. Does anyone know why some sims are not eligible? They are in various stages of fulfilling their own LD.
