I still don't get the whole orb thing. When I have a senior, who has completed his/her bronze orb, do I have to kill him/her in order to pass the orb to someone else to get in into silver or can I just pass the orb along to a new toddler while keeping the senior alive for the time being?

Yes, they have to die to leave an orb behind for another Sim to progress it to the next level.
You can only "use" orbs (for pausing or paying for venues) while the Sim is alive. (And obviously also when they've passed away).

My first platinum Orb
So this means that I can spend it on building etc. or age my toddler and perhaps stop at adult?

Thank you for your excellent guidance!

You can use the platium orb to pause a Sim. There is no need to give it to a baby. The pausing process uses it up anyway. Your toddler will be working towards a bronze orb after that. (Don't forget to pick a life dream).

Thank you so much for all you do!
I Will pause at adult. :P
You and all of the members contributors here are the greatest, without this forum I probably would have stopped playing! You all are amazingly.
I will go back to play/explore the castle now, practice archery, and await the pajama quest.

Is the progression of orbs
Bronze
Silver
Golden
Platinum

Meaning to get a golden orb I need a silver one first and have a sim work toward the golden orb and then use the golden orb to work toward a platinum orb?
