    @Cloudseeker How do I paint a family portrait? The only way I can think of is to paint the family all standing there (which will take forever getting them positioned, and will require one of the family members to not be in it because they have to paint it...). I was planning to just paint a single portrait of each Sim once they reach young adulthood and just hang them up like one big family tree.

    @ewright9 Unfortunately, until we get a better option, you'd have to get them to stand together and then Paint From Reference. But if you turn off autonomy just while you do that, it shouldn't be too difficult to get them to stand still. And remember that I defined a "family portrait" as a picture containing 2 parents and 1 child, so any one of the children could be the one who paints.

    I know it's not the greatest solution, but sadly it's all we've got at the moment.

    @Cloudseeker Would it be ok if I just did individual portraits of everyone? They would all be represented in the house still...
    The game also doesn't refund painting from reference if you cancel it once you get the picture screen, so that makes it even more difficult to get a good picture of everyone together without wasting a lot of money.

    @ewright9 Well, since we're still beta testing, and whether or not you paint individual or combined portraits doesn't really matter for the purpose of beta testing, I'll say it's okay, and hopefully there will be a better method by the time I consider the challenge finished :)

    @Cloudseeker I mean, unless we can move in a "family photographer" who paints the family, then moves out right after :)

    @ewright9 Well, one of the reasons that I decided that a family portrait is just parents and one child was so that you wouldn't need to bring in an external painter :)
