Default Tutorial on continuation of 1 kingdom to the next.
There use to be a tutorial on how to continue your Kingdom from 1 ambition to the next ambition.

Does anyone know where it is?
Or just post it here please.

I hate it that you have to start from scratch every time you start a new ambition.

I have no idea where it is posted now, but here are the instructions I saved by WizardDani. The thanks goes to her/him.

Tired of building up new kingdoms each time you change your ambition? Miss your Royal Family, hoping that some day your heir would rule your kingdom with a new ambition? Follow these steps and you'll find yourself using your first kingdom for any ambition that you want.

The only bad news is that you can't do this if your kingdom already ran out of Quest Points. If you have a backup of your kingdom where there are still QPs (and thus, available quests to complete), then congratulations, you can do this.

EDIT: You can actually play too if you already ran out of QPs using the cheat "showallvalidquests", and everything will work fine, but you won't be able to earn Kingdom Points. There's no XP either, but you will gain XP by completing quests.

1) Play your kingdom until you ALMOST run out of Quest Points (not to be confused with Kingdom Points; KPs). This is really important, please do not run out of QPs. Save and quit your game.
2) Go to your "My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims Medieval\Saves" folder.
3) Create a "Backup" folder and copy there your kingdom save game (let's suppose it's named "Kingdom1"). In our case it will be a folder named "Kingdom1.tsm" with 3 files in it.
4) Run The Sims Medieval again and complete the New Beginnings ambition by spending all your remaining QPs.
5) Tadaa!! Now you have new ambitions to choose. Choose any and start a new kingdom.
6) As soon as the new kingdom loads up, save the game and name it whatever you want, we will call it "Kingdom2".
7) Quit the game and go again to MyDocs\...\Saves folder.
8 ) You're now supposed to see 3 folders: Backup, Kingdom1.tsm and Kingdom2.tsm.
9) Open backup and you'll see Kingdom1.tsm (which is a previous stage of the original Kingdom1.tsm in Saves folder). Well open Kingdom1.tsm (the one in BACKUP, NOT IN SAVES folder) and copy the file "WorldCastle_0x00000000.nhd".
10) Now go to Saves folder and open the folder "Kingdom2.tsm" and paste it there.
11) It'll ask you if you want to replace the file, click YES.
12) Load The Sims Medieval and... VOILÅ”!!!!!!! You are now able to play your very 1st kingdom with the new ambition you selected!!! And you'll say "Oh well thank you, but now I have 1 QP, I can't play!!". Yes you can, just:

1) Enable "testingcheatsenabled" in your "C:\Program files\Electronic Arts\The Sims Medieval\GameData\Shared\NonPackaged\Ini".
2) Right click "Commands" and click properties. Tick off "Read only" if it isn't already and click accept.
3) Now go back to the list in Ini and right click on "Commands" , open it using using WordPad and you'll see "testingcheatsenabled=0". Change "0" to "1" and save.

With this enabled, once you're in the kingdom, you can open up the cheat box (CTRL+SHIFT+C) and type in "setqp (number)", making you able to set as many QPs as you wish in the kingdom. For example, if you're wanting to play as legit as possible, you'd type: setqp 50

You can repeat this process as many times as you want whenever you're wanting to change ambition. But remember, it is extremely important to not run out of Quest Points.
If you're going to post this on any other site please quote and credit me. Thanks and have fun! ))

Thank you and I will test it out today when I get down to 3-4 QP.

The one I remember was posted on the Sims 3 EA website that is now gone.

ADD: Thanks once again and it works easy peasy.

"You can repeat this process as many times as you want whenever you're wanting to change ambition. But remember, it is extremely important to not run out of Quest Points."

This info above seems quite silly to me. If a player is very eager to end the ambition they are playing at the moment they decide they do not want to continue building new kingdoms from scratch each time they move on to another ambition, why does the author insist that the player fully complete the ambition up to a point where they have but one point to begin the new kingdom? The player after having read this information in all common sense should have their testingcheatsenabled immediately, and not wait until the author suggests...after a player has completed their present ambition with a mere one point left of QP. Then a player can set their QP to any number of points they wish at ANY time. In my experience, I finish the requirements of an ambition very early than is generally meant, so I will have several leftover points, and can end the ambition early at Platinum level. One can lower their points or raise them at any time in any game, so it is my opinion that the author may be of a bigger help in keeping questioners about such things longer in the dark about the abilities testingcheatsenabled and other such tricks can give to a player and actually limits some people for a time concerning the manipulations of game play one can enact in TSMP&N, and even other games.

I feel like this author thinks we're slow...ya know? Just had to have my two pence in!

I play all the ambition without cheating the first time through and when I start again I will follow this.


Some of the ambition uses renown to get platinum and is there a way to reduce it so my lvl 10 hero's kingdom with over 700 renown can do it.
