Title: Anach's Sims 3 Mods - Updated 18th September 2014 (1.67)
Post by: Anach on 2009 December 20, 22:31:14
These are my own personal mods that I use to tune the game to my liking. Many of these tweaks will make the game harder by increasing expenditure and decreasing income. The mods are modular and will not conflict with each other.

All these have been updated for 1.67, and while you may find similar mods elsewhere, these versions are my own personal settings and entirely updated for the current version of the game with all EP/SP installed. I do not support any other versions than the version I play.

It is likely my descriptions do not list every tweaked value, as it can be difficult to recall each setting. If you don't like the settings, you can easily change them yourself or remove them without risk to your save-games. I do not do custom requests of these tweaks, as the majority are easily tunable to your own liking using S3PE. Use at your own risk.

Anach_Sunset_Valley_Expanded_1.2 (http://www.mediafire.com/?b3fd61l1q2u9111)

This is an altereration of Sunset Valley to include room for the various EP/SP/Store lots.

As I like Sunset Valley, and have an established family line within this town, I wanted to continue playing this town, but was finding it increasingly difficult to place the lots that keep coming with each expanion. I looked at some other custom worlds, but none of them were exactly what I was looking for.

My main goal was to make minimal changes to the terrain and leave all the original lots in place, while adding enough lots to include the new lot types from the various expanions and DLC. The size and location of the lots is to suit my own game and may not be to everyone's taste.

I have used NO store or custom content and all new lots are vacant. All standard lots and town families are untouched.

Added:
15x20 x1
35x25 x2
30x20 x7
30x30 x6
40x30 x3
40x40 x2
60x60 x2
64x64 x2

1.0
+ Intital release.

1.1
+ Routing fixes
- Removed rogue shrub

1.2
+ Routing fixes
+ fixed edges on some default EA lots.

9 day pregnancy?  With "rule of 6" aging mod, the pregnancy lasts longer than the entire baby/toddler stage, the most useless stage of a sim's life.

Then use one or the other. Are you playing on epic?

BTW, before anyone asks where the tweak file is, been having trouble with my router today, so intended to upload a fixed version of the annoying sound removal mod, but have only just been able to do so now.

Not quite epic.  Sort of mid-range aging.  My sims (if they survive) tend to live about 175-200 days.  I just like more instant gratification - 9 day pregnancies are too much like waiting in line at the supermarket.  Not meant to be a criticism of the mod itself, just a comment.

Seems like the standard setting is more for you. Hopefully one of the other modders will update their pregnancy mods and give you some more options, I only included one option, simply because they are my personal mods and I only use one option. In this case its all about me :)

My mods are released as is, the only tweaks I'll be doing to them are bug fixes or if I want to change something to suit my tastes. However, you can tweak my files yourself with s3pe, or go find yourself the pregnancy morphs on MTS, then head over here (http://www.the-isz.com/theisz/index.php?s=6f83a1f4663f664cf55d4b1e078df68e&showforum=251) to get yourself a custom pregnancy mod compatible with AM.

Cleaned and updated the AF elder pregnancy clothing to include the nude model so there are no more floating heads in the shower either.

Hopefully someone will do some proper elder pregnancy clothing and body at some point so we don't need to use the AF mesh.

Some of the mods should work as long as you have the latest patch. Of course the WorldAdventureBuyable you will need WA. Certain other mods like Teen woohoo and mods marked WA have some code relating to WA, which may cause issues with non-WA. The limo, elder clothes, life time reward debug items and bikini will work regardless of version. For some of the minor tweaks, you maybe able to find non-WA versions elsewhere, or even open up S3PE and the The Sims 3\Game\Bin\Gameplay\gameplaydata.package, find the files I've edited using their instance ID and make your own versions.

Teen woohoo has been updated for the latest patch with Ambitions/World Adventures installed. There are numerous other versions of this type of mod floating around the internet (MTS, CRAZY TOWN), which may include non-WA versions. I purely focus on my own installed version, which includes all the expansions and include my own personally preferred settings. I'll not be including any other versions or supporting older patches.

I cannot accurately state whether all these mods will work without the expansions installed, but feel free to try. However, usually the mods will include EP specific code which may require the EPs (Such as the buyable books mod).

Will you be updating your mods for the latest patches? The first post states they are compatible with versions 1.12/2.6/3.2 (current versions are 1.12/2.7/3.3/4.0).

Several of your mods are "must haves" for me and I would like to update them appropriately. However, I'm a bit confused since you updated the post on June 1st, which is after the current versions were available. Perhaps I'm being dense, but any clarification would be greatly appreciated.

Most of them are usually safe. The main one to usually cause issues with patches is the teen woohoo mod. I've just downloaded the patches and installing now. It will take me a while to go through the files to check, but I'll post as soon as I find if any updates are needed.

*edit* I can't see anything that needs updating at the moment. Everything should work fine.

I've only just got around to reinstalling the game and updating. LN doesn't arrive until next week, and I haven't tested these mods, but I have updated them. They should be good to go, but let me know of any issues.

Open up my mod in s3pe and delete the duplicate entry, which has the following instance 0xC2D9D4BE5390D589 ID, then save. Both mods edit this file. If you are feeling particularly clever and adventurous, you could use winmerge and merge both those xml together.

All these mods are purely for my own personal needs/likes. I share them in case others wish to make use of them. At the moment I don't plan on supporting more mods than I make use of myself. You can always try opening up the file yourself and extending it a few rows in either direction. It's purely down to editing the box dimensions to suit your own needs and only requires s3pe, notepad, a bit of simple math and some trial and error.

I'm aware of that but, even if my game is fully patched, the scroll does not work. I modified all the ramps and used Skininator to mix and match ND skins but those changes shouldn't impact the scroll. Anach's mod is a good solution until I figure out how I messed up CAS.

Handy. I might have to look into that. While I still prefer the larger pane for my own use, it would be good if it scrolled.

And what makes you think the current mod you are using that conflicts with the scrolling UI isn't going to bork this mod too?
The fact that this mod is working.

While I still prefer the larger pane for my own use, it would be good if it scrolled.
Update: after solving the issue relative to scrolling in general, I can confirm that the 6x4 scrolls perfectly.

Same here. Doesn't have a scroll-bar, but does indeed scroll with the mouse wheel.

I don't actually use that in my game, so I've not noticed, but I just had a look and you are correct, it is mistakenly marked for the "naked" category. I wont be updating it, as I had planned on removing that particular file next update.

I know you probably set the Lifefruit value to 1000 in the allbuyable mod as way to balance them being buyable, but that also changes the base sell and reward price. Meaning high quality harvested lifefruits will sell for several thousand each, and opportunities that require lifefruits like the simbot one will reward hundreds of thousands of simoleans. Same for anything else you changed the value of. Easy enough to tweak myself, but just thought I'd give you a heads up in case you (or anyone who installs it) ever decide to garden or build a simbot in your game.

Interesting. I guess I never noticed, as my Sim family is already super rich, I don't sell lifefruit, I've only ever made one Simbot and until recently I had opportunities turned off. :P

I'll revert the values to default for next release (with the Generations patch.) By default the lifefruit is 25 and the flamefruit 18.

Thanks for the heads-up.

Actually, as they are simply .xml tweaks, and they modify much of the same files as mine, they wont work without awesome mod (or other enabler) installed. The only thing that could cause a problem is Twoftmama's files have not been updated since last year.

That's the same sex pregnancy version for freaks. It will still need an activator to work. Also I believe the new version of Twallan's woohooer doesn't need an XML tweak at all for it to enable these things, which would make that particular non-awesome mod friendly version mostly pointless, except for the other interaction tweaks..

I had a read of the woohooer documentation the other day - that thing is getting almost inteenimator like. With complete adjustability to disable the teen, same sex, etc options as well as opening up autonmous woohoo to the general populace again. Definately something I might add to my game when I next play one I haven't already worked the script out for (I'm remaking Pleasant Village again).

This is why with the next patch my Teen TFB mod will become more of a general autonomous interaction tweak. The TFB xml tweak is made redundant with Twallan's woohooer mod.

The WA registers buyable goods may be blocking the consignment store in 1.19.  With it, the buy/consign menu doesn't show up at all, not even in a brand new 3-Sim day old world.  Taking it out allowed the consignment shop to open for buying or consigning.

It is in the "Family Oriented" special dialogue, although when asking other Sims "Ask if Single" or "Ask Sign" when you relationship is not high enough they will still have negative reaction. I also got my YA Female Sims in trouble with the law (PedoBear) when she ask a Teen Female her sign and relationship status under that Special Dialogue.

Try For Baby is also under Family-Oriented.  I don't think the fact that an interaction is considered Family-Oriented precludes it from being romantic.

Anach, the All_Buyable_1.22 was busting the consignment store this time.  I took out everything related to consignment and it looks like it works so far (didn't try a vacation to see for absolute certain).  Nice having it all rolled into one, including death flowers.

The menu to buy or consign didn't even show up.  With Twallan's ErrorTrap installed, it reset my Sim and sent him back home.  Without it, nothing at all came up and it looked a little like a jump bug.

I've just reverted a couple consignment related changes, and tested the consignment register in bridgeport (my test game), which is working fine.

You will need to re-download the packages and replace the all_buyable. If it doesn't work, then it must be something specific to twinbrook, or you have a conflicting mod somewhere. I'm unsure what else in that file could be causing your issue.

I've removed the pregnancy mod for now, until I work out what is causing Sims to get stuck pregnant. At the moment I am unsure if it's caused solely by my mod or a specific combination, but for safety I would suggest to anyone using it, to remove it until I can track down the problem.

Thanks for the report. I had a suspicion that might be the case due to the modifications to the socializing xml. However, I'll most likely have to combine it into my interaction tweaks for it to work. Or have a bunch of compatibility tweaks, which I don't want to do. I'll look into it.

Should be fixed now. Although I've had to merge it into my interaction tweaks, as it needed tweaks in the socialising xml (this makes other things available to teens also).

Added some more mods, updated some, modified others. File modification times will show which, though it's always best to simply update them anyway.

The interaction tweaks mod isn't about one thing specifically. It's a collection of tweaks that enable autonomous interaction for a few things, as well as enable others for teens. Hard to remember specifically which off-hand, but it doesn't alter the chances of such things. The "Ask to move in" interaction was something I've had in there for a few versions, so I've never tested to see if it worked without my tweak, however, it isn't marked as autonomous by default, at least not in that file.

You can change this yourself. Look in the 0x50B229A0C636C136 file, search for "ask to move in" and change the auto to false and udo to true.

That is a good idea.  I'll have a look an see if I can locate a tuning file, and then hope there are separate values for group/single servings.

Unless Buzzler has done something new today with his interactions mod, they shouldn't share any similar files. His mod adds his own tuning files, and doesn't change any existing game xml. I can't remember all the changes off the top of my head, but If Buzzler tweaks a similar interaction, then it will likely overwrite/replace any settings I have changed for the base interaction, so you can safely use both together.

However, mine haven't yet been updated to the latest patch. Not sure when I'll get around to it at this stage, as I'm having a much needed Sims 3 break and finishing off a few other games I bought but never played.

I've just noticed that the pregnancy tweaks make the bump disappear. So I tried others, and it was the same thing. Do you have any idea what they could conflict with? Dashboard didn't come up with anything.

Well I know there was a bug with 1.22 that caused Sims to get stuck pregnant (if they got reset), but I've not heard of the opposite, nor have I had that issue myself. The only difference with my pregnancy tweak is that it makes the pregnancy duration longer, so the bump may take longer to show than with the standard length pregnancy.

I'm in the process of updating mods as we speak, and the pregnancy mod should be fine, as no updates were needed.

I had the problem of the baby bump not showing, and found it was CC Clothing not having pregnancy morph.   When I dressed sim in appropriate clothing the bump appeared.

Well, it may be clothing conflicting, but not on its own, since I had a save with a pregnancy near the end and with a pregnancy tweak, no bump, no pregnancy tweak, bump, with the same clothing. Same with 2 other similar tweaks.

There is also some Generations clothing marked for pregnancy, but it has no morph. More sloppy EA categorisation.

That wouldn't explain why the bump grows back when I take out the mod.

Finally finished updating to the current patch, although I'm still not actually playing at the moment. There shouldn't be any issues, but as always, let me know if you come across anything.

Also I have included a couple mods that I generated with velocitygrass' tools (MTS), simply because they were in the folder where I keep all my mods. For those two mods in particular it maybe best to generate your own using velocitygrass' mod tools, that way you get your own choice of options. Up to you.

According To Sims3Dashboard -- Your Mode With the new Patch Version 1.26  conflicts with Awesomemode .

Question:

Is there another way to add more skin slots-- dots  in CAS accept This Mod? I want to have more Skin to choose from option .
I was looking inside the Awesomemode Config And couldn't  find such option

There should be no conflict with my mod and awesome mod. You can check for duplicate files by opening both in s3pe. It's more likely dashboard is reporting a false positive, or it's telling you something other than conflict errors.

You can use your mouse scroll wheel to see more skins if you can't use my mod.

The option to see more CAS skins is not compatible with 1.26, so you'll need to use the mouse wheel to see more skins. I have more than just the basic 6 that come with the game, and it works fine.

Anachroschism is the soldier name, but unless you are in Australia, I doubt you'll see me playing.

The update for pets is about priority. Skyrim and SWTOR this week. Then between now and Christmas there is LA Noire, Batman: Arkham City, MW3, Jurassic Park, Assassin's Creed Revelations, Metro: Last Light, Trine 2, LOTR: War in the North............ etc. I hope to fit in Pets somewhere between all that.

While I can patch these files without the Pets EP or play testing, there isn't much incentive for me to do so unless I want to play too. If there is a mod you particularly like, you might be best getting winMerge, and altering the files yourself. It's very easy to alter XML files. Or even finding a similar mod on MTS, which there are no doubt plenty.

All I can say at the moment is Soon™ :)

Ah Australia damn, yeah I play in NA region. So youre getting MW3 as well eh... didnt see that I figured its either BF3 or MW3, at least for me. I have looked at MTS and they have lots of great MODS, but the one thing they seem to be missing is difficulty mods. One thing that has always turned me off from Sims is how easy it is and thats why youre mods are great. Making money is already too easy and I like things being realistically more expensive. There are only a select that I was looking to use, but Ive looked into the WinMerge and yeah... Ive NO idea how that stuff works. Maybe I should just try using em with the game? I have tested other mods when  was testing stuff for EP and a bunch of them still worked. You think thats a good idea?

I enjoy the single player of MW, multiplayer sucks balls compared to BF3, unless you like a rehashed version of quake multiplayer, and I was never an Arena or UT player.

I can't say which mods need updating without actually going to update them, and then I might as well. Likely a lot wont actually need updating, but if they do, it might crash or cause strange behaviour. WinMerge is very easy to use. Just copy the xml from my mod  to the one side of winmerge, and the same xml from gameplayData.package (same resource ID) into the other side of winmerge, and compare the data. You will quickly see what I have altered and what (if anything) is missing.

It's a pain when mod authors don't update their mods, but as I stated, I only provide files for the version I'm currently playing. Unfortunately for the majority at this stage, I'm still unpatched. This is why I encourage other people to take my mods and do their own edits. It's very easy once you know which file to change, as finding the right xml to tune initially can be the most difficult part.

Thanks Anach. For some very odd reason, the link in the first post still doesn't work but the one you posted now does. The link on the first page has worked for me in the past and I can access all other mediafire links. Oh well. In case anyone is wondering why I want these even though I'll be installing Pets - in case I want to uninstall due to bugs and borked CC I just need to swap my mod folder.

I see what you mean about the time now and between christmas. Every game company out there are aiming to release their game so it can be found under the tree, probably pushing the deadline so we'll get some extra bugs and crap  :P

Zed Pee Em, would you mind sharing the mods you have updated? Or if anyone else can? Yes it might sound like a piece of cake to edit it myself to you but to me its like fighting a horde of rhinos wanting to kill me. If Anach would be fine with anyone else uploading updated versions, of course.

Anach, thanks for mentioning WinMerge. Makes XML tuning a hell of a lot easier, not mention its usefulness in other non-Sims-related fields. Don't know how I did anything without it! Seriously, they should add that to the XML-tuning tutorial on MTS.

It also compares folders. Very handy tool, and free!

I included that reduced memories package simply because it's in the folder where I keep all the other mods and saved me time. This is why I included info on how it was made, so other people can do it the proper way if they wish.

As far as I noticed during my own use of custom skins, random generated Sims will only use the default skins. However, if Sims with custom skins have babies, they will usually share the same custom skin as their parents, which causes problems later if you want to remove the skin.

No he doesn't mind one little bit.

However, it is not possible that my mod conflicts with multiple mods you use, unless you are using mods which already conflict with each other. My mod only edits a single xml (0xC804E72F531C6AAD). So at most, there should be only one conflict. Regardless, you can either ask Twoftmama, or tell me which mod mine apparently conflicts with so I can take a look myself, and you may even find I already include similar changes in my file.

Second in agreement.

Anyways, like I said, I'm learning how to mod, I've read some tutorials at simswiki, not getting very far because of time restraints but I'll probably get the hang of it once I have some actual time to kill, shouldn't be too hard to do, the tuts seem pretty extensive....On this particular matter, my weak attempt is trying to find that ID, (0xC804E72F531C6AAD) in the one of the code tables but no luck, (I think I have an idea why...)

In my downloads I had Twoftmama's "Don't Eat Unless I Tell You To/Visitors Cant Use Fridge Combo" and "Don't Eat From Inventory", and it's obvious why they they conflicted so I took "Don't Eat From Inventory" out and your "Ambrosia Group Serve" popped out of nowhere with a conflict (Yes, I do understand how Delphy's Dash works). So which changes to your mod conflict with "Don't Eat Unless I Tell You To/Visitors Cant Use Fridge Combo"?


Title: Re: Anach's Sims 3 Mods - Updated 29th November 2011
Post by: Anach on 2011 December 02, 21:04:39
There is no conflict between those files. My Anach_AmbrosiaGroupServe mod and Twoftmama's Don't Eat Unless I Tell You To \Visitors Cant Use Fridge Combo mod edit totally different files. Open up both files with s3pe, and you can see Twoftmama only edits ITUN files, where mine is _XML, they also have different instance IDs. If there is a conflict report with the Dashboard, either it's wrong or you're reading the conflict report wrong. If it's wrong, I suggest posting it on the MTS board as an error.

I am almost at the point of option C so I'm ever so slowly learning how to mod the game myself. Sims 3 BFBVFS usually happen to lesser player like you who instead of learning how to fix something, re-install 100000000000x everytime a booboo happens, goodness why do people insist on idiocy. Something like running into a glass door continuously when it's obvious that there's a handle and it can open to let you through, because it's a wannabe splurker. Smanks mysweet for the flaky advice, but moar tryhard next time m'kay doodles? :P

If you're such a big, bad, self-sufficient, budding modder, what was the point of your original "OH NOES WHAT DO I DOOOOOOOO?" tardery?

A. Laziness, couldn't find where to test my sig, didn't have much time
B. Boredom, just wanted a quick laugh, but I know some ppl see that as a personal insult
C. Mitigation, once you get past the sarcasm and/or ridicule, this site is probably has the best strait-forward advice, I wanted to see if he would actually help as I'm learning how to mod the game myself
D. All of the above, maybe I was/wasn't expecting, but there's no shame in asking

You choose. You seem to see everything...

I think I'm overly confusing myself, and so was Delphy's Dash, which was my mistake. I since then actually looked into the files and seen which ones are conflicting. I cleaned my greedy ass but decently organized enough, downloads folder; now DD can actually read properly, Twoftmama's Meals anytime is the culprit. Also, was her Save Money Eat Leftovers was conflicting with Don't Eat Unless I Tell You To/Visitors Cant Use Fridge Combo, my stupid mistake, and she said she would combine those two, but that still leave out your Ambrosia mod.

I haven't come across that issue, ice cream trucks work fine for me, I'm using 1.26 and the Ambrosia mod.

Post by: YoungOldPrude on 2011 December 20, 03:42:32
That is really strange. I removed all my mods and went through the process restarting with certain files and gradually worked my way to where I am now: No Ambrosia = Working Ice Cream Truck.
I wonder if it's a double conflict, then? When I was at the very end of my testing I had kept AmbrosiaGroupServe in and had ice cream selection available, but then I came to the last mod I had to test (CameraHeightMin) (which I was devastated about, because I couldn't fathom how in the world that would affect the truck) , but when I removed it, the ice cream selection was still blank. So I took out Ambrosia once more, and lo, I had ice cream again.

 
I hope this makes sense. My mind is all over the place. Main Point: This situation is strange because, on one hand, Ambrosia will not interfere with the ice cream truck, but then, if I have all my other mods in (the ones declared innocent by testing), Ambrosia will interfere with the ice cream truck, yet if I remove Ambrosia, the conflict will terminate and the ice cream truck will no longer be empty.

Give me a few hours and I'll double-check the code against 1.26 and see if I can see any possible way this could cause the issue. If you are merging mods, then it should take care of any conflicting xml files. Otherwise, if you can't wait, use winmerge and open up gameplayData.package and compare my file to your original.

*edit* Double-checked, and couldn't see any errors, or anything else that would affect the ice-cream truck.

Well to answer the question. My mods work with the patch version listed on the first post, and the readme. I can't guarantee it will be free from breakages if used with a latter version, as it depends on the mod used and what's been patched. Though I've explained this in previous posts already.

I just got the new SP today, but I haven't had time to sit and update my mods or play it yet.

Well your mods appear to be working fine for me with Master Suite Stuff. I put it down to the fact that this was a stuff pack that only added 27 new objects (from what I counted), 5 male pieces of clothing (not including recolours, just meshes), 1 male hairstyle, 36 pieces of female clothing (not including recolours, just the new meshes), and 4 female hairstyle (3 with forced accessories), 1 female head accessory, all restricted to adults (with the exception of the hairstyles). It's just an over glorified selection of crapola that, because it's in a shiny box, they can whack a higher price tag on it. There is nothing "new" about this, of course I didn't pay for it, stuff that.

If you are looking to speed up the updating process for all of your mods, I checked four of your mods for compatibility with Showtime. These mods are the ones I installed for Showtime:

Anach_ChildrenTrainSimFix
Anach_InteractionQueueLimit16
Anach_MedicalPanicChildFix
Anach_WashHandsChance

The above mods do not need updating for Showtime.

The only mods I didn't put into my Mods folder are:

Anach_CASSkins6x4 (There is supposed to be a new component in CAS that should have added more colors to the skintones, but I haven't seen that yet.)
Anach_NoIntro (This one probably needs updating, but it is safer to wait for further clarification first than to blow up Showtime.)
Anach_NoQToQuit (This one probably don't need updating, but with the way EA programs Sims 3 these days, it is wise to wait for clarification first.)


Title: Re: Anach's Sims 3 Mods - Updated 8th December 2011
Post by: exspes on 2012 March 19, 11:29:37
For what it's worth, I'm running Anach_NoIntro and Anach_NoQToQuit with Showtime/1.33 without problems.

I don't use Anach_CASSkins6x4 or Anach_CASDetails8x2, but I'd imagine there are issues with CAS UI mods and anything post-1.31, unless all the stuff regarding skintones etc. in 1.32 has been totally removed.

Anach_All_Buyable
Anach_CelebrityDifficulty
Anach_CelebSuePaparazzi

^ Twallan's ErrorTrap is picking up 1k+ script errors for me with these three, but I'm using all the service NPC tweaks (Mixologist, Repairman etc.), interaction tweaks, tweaks to bills and fees, and pregnancy tweaks without noticing any problems.

Well I'd been using a low end replacement PC for over a month, so it took me longer than expected to sort my data and get everything I needed transferred across. I didn't get much done on the weekend either, as I had to wait for an important email that didn't show up. Then to add to the delay, they sent me a brand new, but whole different motherboard as a replacement, which meant I had to redo my nice neat case layout, and Windows doesn't appear happy with upgrade either, which means I'll probably have to do a fresh reinstall, and I really hate having to do that. Beside all that, my main concern at this moment has been getting my car modifications/repairs finished to get it registered and insured (I had to find something to do for the last month without a gaming PC), and that has taken longer than expected.

The good news is, the EP is installing as I type this, however, I'm leaving in an hour, so we'll see how this weekend goes.

I downloaded and installed your tweaked Sunset Valley. I then placed various business/venues and houses in the new lots you had placed about. Other than switching a couple of the lots from community to residential, I didn't change a thing.

Shortly after starting a new game I noticed my Sim was having difficulty going to the stadium for athletic training, then later getting to her job (the warehouse). She would get the route fail thought bubble whenever I requeued the action. I could send her close to the stadium then do a few "go here" actions until she was close enough to send her in. As far as the warehouse, she got into the car to go to work then it dumped her right before the warehouse and again I had to do a couple "go here" actions to finally get her inside. The following Sim day I also noticed that other families were just standing around when they should be at work.

I'm not sure what's going on, and would really like to play your tweaked version as Sunset Valley has always been one of my favorites too.

I can't say I've noticed any routing issues those locations, and have been sending Sims there frequently, but I do have some routing tweaks installed which might be making a difference. I'll have a look at the routing around those areas and do some testing of those areas over the weekend.

Much appreciated, Anach.

If you can't find anything perhaps you can point me in the direction of what and where the routing mods you use are?

I had a good look around the stadium and couldn't find anything obvious. I had to rebuild the routing data anyway after I fixed some other routing issues outside the town area, and also fixed a rogue tree that somehow made its way into the street. My Sims still have no issues with the Stadium area either. Try the new version and see how you go. I have my Sports Bar and Dog Park in those two new lots.

As for the routing tweaks, I'm using Twoftmama Route Fix Flavor 2 v4 (http://simsasylum.com/tfm/). One other tweak people often use is the sims3.ini in the Game\Bin folder. However, mine is currently default.

Code:
[Config]
DynamicAvoidance_FieldRadius = 0.15
DynamicAvoidance_InactiveFieldLength = 3.0
DynamicAvoidance_MinNonIntersectingDistance = 0.24
DynamicAvoidance_FieldLengthPad = 0.6
DynamicAvoidance_StopDistanceMultiplier = 1.85
Stroller_MinimumPathLength = 5.5
Stroller_MaxIncline = 0.05

If you continue to have problems, please try to get a screenshot of the area giving you issues, that way I can be more specific when looking in the editor.

PS. For everyone else. Updated mods also uploaded.

Yes everything will continue as normal. Just be sure to backup your saves before uninstalling the world, so the game doesn't delete them. If you have any routing issues, please let me know where, and if possible, include some screenshots of the affected area.

Yes, I took it out as I was having issues. Although I had fixed the issue I was having, it's safer to use the tool on MTS to create your own. That file needs updating every patch, or you may end up missing effects from objects and Sims.\

hello, first I wanna say thanks for these awesome mods!.
and, to my problem then...

my game seems to crash a few times after updating to 1.34 patch and I thought maybe some of your mods need updating.
would you mind telling me which mods need updating? I will not use them until you update... I am not asking you to, but i will wait because I don't have the knowledge to do it myself.

and again... thanks! (excuse my english)

Just happened the patch came out on the week I have my Daughter for school break. This coupled with my 8 year old file server died this week, so am waiting for parts and having to do everything from backups. Very inconvenient of EA as usual!

Title: Re: Anach's Sims 3 Mods - Updated 10th July 2012 (1.36) Pregnancy glitch (Mebbe)
Post by: illys on 2012 August 11, 16:28:02
Love these mods! Using most of them, though I tried to sieve off the ones which appear to be specifically for EPs. I'm running Sims 3 base game, at 1.36 patch.

I especially like the Epic lifespan setting, and the pregnancy tweak. I like the idea of it lasting longer and going realistically!

Been playing with the mods for about a week and a half now, no problems, but after I got my sim pregnant, the game has started freezing oddly every time she plans to do something, as if my system were struggling with the planning of the action. She'll stand up from bed, freeze in place and the clock will stop, and then about 10-15 seconds later she'll go on about her life as if nothing were wrong.

I'm testing for the moment to see if this is a problem of a conflict with other mods (Using some of BUZZ's mods, aging management, seed box and expanded interactions, and Treeag's Breastfeeding, and NRASS' WooHooer). I'll update if I find the fault is due to other mods.

Thanks for sharing your tweaks! Cheers and stuffs, -illys

I've not encountered anything like that. All I can think of is it could possibly break if you applied the tweak when the Sim was already pregnant. You will know at the end of the term either way.

Another one of those issues that everyone but me is having :P

I plan to go over that area in the next update, but with my recent look over that area I was unable to find anything amiss. All my Sims enter and exit that building perfectly fine. Did you uninstall the previous version of the world before attempting to update to the newer version, and clear your world caches? (you can't install over the top).

Well...  There are ways to do it, with say a monitoring task that routinely watches for the existence of taxis and bills their occupants.

However, I do not consider that a sound approach, due to the high processing requirements.

So, it is possible, just not feasible in my mind, and unfortunately cannot be done via tuning. :)

Honestly, the patches are really annoying me too. All I want to do is just sit down and play some Sims, but to be able to do that, I not only have to update all my mods, but everyone else's mods too, which means hours of editing custom configs and checking which files need updating (Last time took me a couple days). On top of that, I've just moved house and still unpacking, and as part of the house move I'm trying to reduce the amount of PCs I have, in an attempt to cut down on power consumption and noise. So I'm in the process of getting rid of my separate domain controller/fire wall/mail server and distributing it between my network file server and router. This means some domain transfer, active directory configuration, lots of database transfers and a bunch of other stuff I don't really feel like doing. Between all that, I've been trying to finish off Skyrim, and help my mother deal with my terminally ill grandmother. So the hours I do have free are are better spent elsewhere unfortunately. Wish I could wave a magic wand and just have it done for me, because I just want to play. :)

From the date on this topic, it looks like I haven't played Sims since mid July. :(

I've loved Anach's mods since I discovered them last spring. Unfortunately my family is a bit paranoid on the internet front, and my internet-saavy administrator has us using OpenDNS domain filtering. That means no phishing sites, less Pornz, and a kinda blanket-block on sites like Mediafire, etc, since they'e so popular for Warez.

Can anyone possibly share a dropbox, skydrive or similar link for these downloads?
Before I get desparate. Y'know, like saying yes to a mobile data agreement with my telefony provider. Argh.

From my experience, activity pause is generally caused by CPU overload, and that is usually down to the hardware you have and the amount of script mods you have installed. The older and bigger a town gets, the worse it gets.  All my mods are xml, and object tweaks, there are no script mods. Overall lag (continuous) is usually caused by bad custom content, or lack of decent hardware). The usual bugs you may encounter from an outdated xml mod is that something doesn't work right, or you're missing artwork, or text. A common one seems to be the life time wish vanishes from the HUD, or with some cases, a total game freeze or CTD when you click something.

As this was a very minor patch, I only did a quick file compare and it showed up nothing, so unless someone reports an issue, I'm going to assume that all is ok with this update. I've not had a chance to thoroughly play-test the game myself, as I'm still importing my old families to the new version of St Claire.

Butlers have always been a bit twitchy, which is why I prefer to make my own using a normal CAS Sim and Twallan's "Make NPC" option from Master Controller. I got tired of butlers vanishing, resetting their beds, losing inventory, getting stuck and being short on interactions.

Hello, the mod seems great, but I just discovered, that none of my sims can cook! I have a fridge, a stove and a clean free counter. There are no interactions available with both fridge and stove.
-after I learned 2 skill points of cooking, my sim can make pet gournet food
-after I bought one of very few recipes in shop (there were only 8 or so available) and I learned it. I could do this one meal afterwards (cheese plates). But still no quick meal or salad or anything.

(I posted it here, because before I installed the mod, I didn't have this problem)

Any ideas? solutions? please

I'm running these mods with the 1.50 patch and the only issue I've had so far is with All Buyable, which made books disappear in World Adventures worlds.

Before anyone takes this post too seriously, I am only using Ambrosia, MoveIn, CameraHeight, CASD, ClubClosing, FishTank, InteractionQ, PartyTweaks, RichValue, and WashHands. And as Anach said this does not mean that there are no conflicts with these mods and the 1.50 patch.

I know that EA is a huge pain with the constant patching - am curious as to whether or not you'll be updating for 1.50 or if you are, in fact, waiting for the next patch. I use several of your mods and will hate not having them in the game but I don't want to deal with trying to figure out what does and doesn't work. After an HD crash (with little saved-oops!), I'm still trying to get my downloads back so I'm still going through everything with the Pets patch. Yeah....way behind and too tired to tackle much else just now!  :P   Will keep checking back and hope to put them in soon. Boy, I miss the days when EA waited a much longer time between EPs!

I haven't felt that urge to patch yet, as I haven't got the EP yet, and so have a lack of desire to play right now. I will get to it, but as usual, it will just happen when it happens. :)

You can probably find alternatives to most my mods on MTS anyway, and as usual I encourage people to get winmerge and update the xml themselves, as it's quite easy once you've done it once.

Hadn't done it before, but I knew the basics of how this stuff works so I figured it out. Thanks for letting me know about winmerge, finding the files manually with notepad++ would have doubled the time.

Only updated the ones I use, however, and not guaranteed to be perfect. But thought I'd share.

Anach, all the newest links to the downloads lead to pages that can't be displayed.

Please, disregard this post, the links are working now. Thanks for the update.

Is it just me being moronic (wouldn't be the first time) or have the following mods disappeared from you collection for patch 1.55?

Anach_NoQToQuit
Anach_NoRouteFailTantrum



They have indeed vanished. I haven't used them for a long while now, so I didn't feel a desire to update them this time around. However, there doesn't appear to be any changes to those files, so as far as I can tell, the last version should be fine to use.

Both of those are covered by AM.  If you use that you don't need those.

Anach, how possible would a 'never make cell phone calls' mod be? For us Medieval folk ;D Cheers.

I don't recall seeing my Sim making calls autonomously, only receiving them, is this what you mean? It's not something I'd use myself, although, I'm pretty sure I saw a mod somewhere for the latter, which would stop Sims answering the phone, but you'd still need to mute the calls.

Yeah the other mod does what it's supposed to, apparently. You don't take calls. It's the other stuff, like sims taking the phone out and pressing buttons (autonomous) or making calls ( I thought that was autonomous, but perhaps not). Basicly any action that would look out of place in a world set before 1990.

That would be something like a no idles mod; taking out things like holding the camera, pressing phone buttons and such. I believe there is already a mod about for that too, as there are plenty of people that like to play Sims that way. You might be best off posting in the WCIF thread.

As far as I can tell at first glance, none of my mods need updating for patch 1.57.

Does anyone know which ones of these mods do or do not work for 1.63? So far I am not seeing any problems, but I want to be sure something isn't going to kill my game slowly from the inside.

The only one I peeked into was AllBuyable, which is missing code for the EP11 books, at least. WinMerge is a really easy way to check where the differences exist. New code usually sticks out like a sore thumb.

You can use the list here to compare the XML name/instance ID: http://www.simlogical.com/ContentUploadsRemote/uploads/2227/TS3_XML_Changes163_Nona.txt

If the XML is on the list, something's been changed about it. Some of the changes were very minor (or in some cases, insignificant, such as changing a comment only), so they might not be a big deal. Other XMLs had major changes, though, and those will cause problems when used with the wrong patch level.

If the XML is on the list, you can check the changes in WinMerge and decide if you want to use the mod or not.

I'll go through that all later, for now I've removed them all because I've discovered one of them is actually causing the future portal to reset constantly and I can't inspect it.

I got the necro warning, but I'm posting anyway because of the popularity of these mods.  If I do wrong, I'm sure you all won't hesitate to tell me so.

Rubyelf:  I had the same problems with Anach's mods interfering with the future portal, and so far I've ruled out:

Burglar Tweaks
CAS Details
Children Train Sim Fix
Fires
Genie Tweak
IceCream Truck fix
Medical Panic Child fix
Newspaper Tweaks
No Annoying Music
No Auto Pet Wake Up
Party Tweaks
Reaction Remover
Vampire Tweaks

At least those are the ones I'm running right now and I'm able to use the portal.  This is just for anyone's information.  I'm not planning on doing more testing to find out specifics.

The Babysitter Tweaks is the cause for the ITF time portal to not work. :).

Mods updated! Been out of the loop for while. Decided to try Sims 4 and it was so terrible that it drove me to update my mods for Sims 3. I haven't tested these yet, and I'm unlikely to get a chance until next week, so please report any problems.

Ditto, I played Sims 4 for a week, returned it, and went back to playing Sims 3. It's good to see you back, Anach.  I'll make sure to edit this post if I have any issues.
Thanks.

I'm currently using your version of Sunset Valley, and something prevents my sims from moving in and out of Doo Peas Corporate Towers lot. If I move my sims on that lot via teleport, they have no problem entering the building itself. Does anyone else experience this?

I did have that problem with an early version, but thought I had fixed it in the current version of the world. I haven't had the issue at all since. You could try reinstalling the world and clearing your caches, or you could try removing and replanting the lot, just be sure to save the lot to the library first.
