Ambitions: What's borked

Am I crazy, or are there no skill books in the library in Twinbrook?

I guess those two things aren't mutually exclusive.  I swear I clicked on every friggin' bookcase and couldn't find any, but I'd be happy to be proven wrong.

I do not see any trees in neighbourhood view. Zooming out I cannot see them, when zoomed in close to the lot I can see them, and before I installed ambitions I could see the trees in neighbourhood view. I've had problems with Riverview before with no trees in neighbourhood view, but this persists with the new town and also Sunset Valley.

Rad, check your graphics setting in Options. It may have changed the settings you had before you installed the new expansion.

Whenever you install a new EP, SP, or patch, the game resets to the default settings.  You'll also need to change your lifespan options too, if you were playing at anything other than the default.

My graphics settings appear to be on low even though they arent.

Also, the house I moved into has a FOUNDATION HEIGHT FLOOR on top of the first floor, and it deletes using the sledgehammer, leaving holes (walled holes). Like a deck/foundation. But there's no tool to build something like this for myself! D:

Copied over my options from my saved directory, and it's no longer borked.

It somehow saw fit to set all my options to default (minimum). I had it optimized for my PC for a balance between quality/performance before

I got my options to fix after closing and reloading, but it wont let me turn off data whatevering. Which is scary.

The grass in Twinbrook is so..ugly...that I didn't think my graphics settings were fixed until I placed the default grass to compare.

CAS has no music. Now that's changed from my last game session pre-ambitions.

On the contrary, I was enjoying the CAS music, there's some cute new general town/cas/etc music in this one.

Did anyone notice the logo on the load screen is ridiculously off center? <_< This is pretty Borked to me. I'll be updating my Sims 3 Load Screen mod to work with this for sure.

I can CAST floor edges...but not cielings. :\

I meant that after the original music in CAS when it loads/runs, there is no music. No loop, or shuffle, or play. Just stops.

I'm seeing a Grill-A-Thon marker constantly, not sure if this is intentional but it is a bit annoying. The house icon does it too. I am hoping this can be modded away because I am already aggrivated by it.

All the windows on every lot are blue tinged outside looking in and clear inside looking out. What the hell?

Tilt hte camera up. If it goes away, that's the sky reflecting onto them.

I think my launcher is borked. I can't install or uninstall content.

Well, the windows are significantly more reflective now (people complained that they didnt seem to have glass panes), so I think it is the sky. :p

Still nothing borked for me apart from what I listed. I really wish I could figure out the damn mini-foundation thingy used on, like, every house. It's clearly made with a special tool but no such tool exists!

FYI, I registered my game earlier and was able to download and install the free stuff from the store just fine. I also have all the new traits (can't remember where, but some people were reporting that the new traits were missing for them). I haven't checked out the reward items yet, so can't comment on those. My sliders also work fine and I'm currently testing out some other CC. No problems yet, although ironically EA did what most other world creators have done - used the most official-looking library bookshelves - which sadly have no skill books in them whatsoever. I wish I knew how to hack that and make all books available for all bookshelves, because it's ridiculous.

Yeah, sorry if I came off cold, I realize now that the windows are now a lot more reflective. But my first instinct was that blue window effect way back from sims 2! Other than that, nothing is borked for me either. I wanna how they did that foundation, too.

If you look when inside the windows reflect the indoors much more. I also notice the lighting and shadows are VASTLY improved (in a subtle way, if that makes sense). In particular an easel I was placing for an architect job produced a shadow on the wall when two tiles away from it, which I dont recall seeing before.

Has anyone shared the free registration stuff yet?

I don't have Ambitions yet, but I just patched. Have been enjoying the world editor tool, playing around with lot placement and moving trees or deleting them. I have been unable to grab the big oak trees, no matter what angle I try to get to them. Those are the ones I wanted to delete in some areas, cause they clip the houses.

I wonder if those of you that have Ambitions are experiencing the same problem? I wanted to know if this is just a patch thing.

Yeah, the indoor lighting actually is a lot better!

The laundry thing. I'm not sure what's going on but my Sim (pre-made, Sergeant is the last name I believe) never wears the same clothing twice anymore now that I've initiated the laundry system. Basically, every time your Sim changes clothes whether from showering or switching to work out, they drop a pile of clothing on the ground near them. Clicking on the laundry gives you the Clean Up option but if you don't then click on the Washing Machine and choose Do Laundry, the Sim will just drop the laundry in a pile again. OR you can just click on the Washer and choose Do Laundry and your Sim will go around the house collecting piles of clothing. Takes 45 Sim minutes for a wash cycle, not sure how long for drying, and a green light on the front of each machine tells you when it's done. Also, they get Wants to wash clothes and positive moodlets for fresh clothing.

BUT, back to the clothing, I was wondering if Sims wear ugly tattered clothing because you didn't have them do their laundry. It's bullshit but, I've been doing nothing but laundry since I started and my one Sim keeps wearing different clothing. Once it was a jumpsuit, then the career clothing for Culinary (even though she is a cop). Her husband does not have this problem.

Like usual, EA overdid something that players might have actually enjoyed otherwise. They are CLUELESS.

Hopefully someone will create a mod for this. Dropping the clothes on the floor once every 3-4 days ought to do it. To make it realistic, though, it should vary dependiing on the number of sims in the household. Currently I am playing a two-sim household and they are doing laundry twice a freaking day.

Small issue: my Investigator Sim was doing a Stakeout at the Library. A message came up saying he found some information and should write a report and give it to the police. Since he was already at the Library and could use a computer, I clicked the building to go inside (it was still acting as a rabbit hole) but I didn't get the option to Visit the Library. I had to have him walk off lot to the supermarket, then clicked on the Library and I finally had the option to Visit and the Library interior became visible.
