I've started to grow a little bored with Sims, so I thought I would try installing Pets to see if it works with AM (and if it doesn't, I'm not bothered at the moment). Although the game started up with no critical mimatch errors, and the new world loaded up fine, I cannot use the Create a Household function. I click the button, and it make a click sound, but then nothing happens. I can still place pre-created sims in houses, and they seem to play fine, but I cannot create any new households.

Nothing, you say? It worked for me in testing on 1.2.6, but no Pets.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: Death-Jester on 2011 October 19, 12:54:10
I just tried using Pets with no mods, and it worked fine. I am running a handful of 'official' CC, AM, and NRAAS Mastercontroller (purely to fix Mixologists in bars when they stop doing their jobs!). I'll try removing NRAAS and see if that's the culprit.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: Death-Jester on 2011 October 19, 13:29:59
Okay, it seems NRAAS was stopping the game entering Create a Household, but now I found a different issue, which is caused by AM, I took a screenshot of it:

http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/171/amcahbug.jpg/

There's no premade Sims showing up, and most of the buttons cannot be clicked. The only clickable buttons are the top set, but clicking them doesn't change what you see (ie nothing!).

The only CC I have is some store content, nointro, and AM.


PS: Sorry for double post, but it won't let me edit my first post.

Have the same simbin issue as Death-Jester, default config AM only.

In the new neighborhood I get bombarded with error messages similar to those posted a bit up in the thread, but about a wild horse. Example:

Post by: J. M. Pescado on 2011 October 19, 14:13:56
Issue should be fixed now. Wild Horse Issue is a mystery, since the code that generates it is EAxian in origin and should never do that...but it's EAxian code, so...


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: Slymenstra on 2011 October 19, 16:23:30
While in Create a Household & editing the relationships I crash to the desktop.

I only have awesome mod (the latest with the horse fixes) I have Pets & all the patches.  When I take awesome mod out, I can edit relationships again. I had been making a toddler the child of a young adult at the time if that makes any difference.

I had the same issue, crash to desktop editing relationships in CAS.

ETA:  NRaas Error Trap caught nearly 500 of these in Appaloosa Plains on a fresh start of the new town; only mentioning it because it mentions Awesome.

Having the same horse issue as Goggalor, but it's not just wild horses. Using a horse in the household and having them interact with an object that would create fatigue, such as the racing posts, the error will pop up. However, the exercise meter still fills and the thirst goes down. This happens every time a horse interacts with something that will cause fatigue. No idea if fatigue actually works since I haven't tested yet.

Yes, it's the version as of this morning, 10/19.  Just to be sure, I re-downloaded it and tried again, and within a few moments of playing the new town racked up 115 of the same error, all caught by Error Trap, plus what looked like the Stupid EAxis Fail re: Wild Horses.

I just tried playing Pets today with AM, but the game crashes to desktop within a couple minutes everytime.  I'm not using any other mods, but do have all EA released store items in package form.  I just recently got back into Sims this past week, so I don't know how to post errors messages like others did, but will with instruction or direction to where I could find that information. Thanks for help.

Game crashes after a short while here too. No more horse messages, but there's some excessive pet motive depletion when using the "train to hunt" command. The poor dog's motives went from full to depleted in about 15 sim minutes. Does not happen without AM.

EDIT Got another error:

I think there's something hinky with AM still. My sim couldn't get a taxi to places, the travel action would just drop out of the queue unless it was within walking distance.

I thought it might be NRAAS, but it still persisted when I removed that, so I put it back in, and also added The ErrorTrap.
When running the Sims again, I still had the problem with the taxis, but now ErrorTrap was going berserk, throwing up hundreds of errors. I also noticed the icecream van didn't have a driver, which I think correlates to these lines in the ScriptError file:

That's not a crash. In fact, that's apparently an EAxis specific error that I normally no longer show to people except if AwesomeDebug is enabled, because, well, I have no idea what causes it or why, since that code branch is just a snowclone and I've checked it many, many times. Does it persist? Sometimes the game just borks.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: Cyron on 2011 October 20, 14:13:30
I get a core mismatch error (latest awesomemod version) when I start the game (Pets EP installed). Is this normal behavior because awesomemod is not built for Pets yet (at least the download page says so)?

(http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6108/6263324669_0526b269aa.jpg)

A couple of the other horses there also has had a couple other Awesomemod traits randomly selected by the game: Chosen & Blind

Same here. Game crashes even with just awesomemod after seconds of gameplay. 1.26, but with Pets.

This. Initially it seemed for me that it was crashing at 12 noon each time, but on later attempts, it would happen somewhat earlier. Point is, with AM only, I get as far as loading, choosing my household, and between 3 and 5 hours in-game hours of play before unceremonious CTD, in any given household.

Same here. Random crashes after about a minute of playing. All EP's (incl. Pets), HELS and latest patches.

Post by: Death-Jester on 2011 October 20, 20:06:53
Yes, this seems to be the problem I have too.
No ScriptError files, so no way of knowing for sure, but it just seems to crash after a minute of play. My sim freezes, then a second or two after I get the crash.

After browsing google it seems that this crashing error is cause by EA rather than AM. I havn't been able to find any outside fixes for it yet though.  Good luck to you Pescado in fixing this problem, hopefully it gets resolved soon because I am itching to play with my new kitty and doggy.

I haven't had a crash without AM, but I get them frequently with AM.

I second that. No crashes after I removed AM.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: darkbard on 2011 October 20, 21:20:09
Same, no crashes once AM is removed.

As far as the EA crashing issue, some of it is being caused by people trying to play Pets with shitty and unsupported video cards. Other people with high end video cards have fixed the crashing by enabling the Advanced Rendering option in the game's graphic settings. Updated drivers seem to help some folks. And turning down the graphics on video cards that are borderline has helped others. Also the mac client has been crashing since the Pets patch. Shoddy programming is shoddy, EA.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: blackninja on 2011 October 20, 21:26:06
I, sadly, am still getting crashes after removing AM.  I will try making sure my drivers are updated, and check my graphics.  Does Pets require a higher end card than the rest of the Sims 3 expansions? That might be a problem for me.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: Skadi on 2011 October 20, 21:59:23
Updated to AM version 2011-Oct-20 19:15:40
Only hacks/mods installed are AM and Error Trap.
Using FPS and 3 booter to launch.
Previously the game was running with twallan's stuff with no crashes.

Loaded, got into house, hit play.
All the sims had their queues drop and the horse was reset to the mail box. Paused again to re-queue interactions. Hit play, after about 3 seconds got the "Sims 3 has stoppped working" message. CTD.

No error trap notifications this time.

It does require a better card, but if your pets do not look like oddly warped freaky things, reminiscent of adult CC enabled for toddlers, you probably don't need the upgrade.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread

As soon as I removed AM my crashes stopped, and I'm running 2 GTX 470's in SLI.

Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: Meteora on 2011 October 20, 22:36:04
AwesomeMod seems to be semi-working for me. The game runs perfectly fine if I just leave the sims to their own, but the moment I use a object in the house (namely the toliet or filling the pet bowl, just 'cause) the game just crashes. Was running in window mode. I took out AM and it suddenly stopped crashing. I do have some other mods from NRaas but Delphy's Dashboard doesn't report any conflicts with AM, unless there's something I don't know about. I have yet to try AM without the NRaas mods to see if it was a mod conflict.

Crash report includes "DasmX86Dll.dll not found" but I already read that its basically got nothing to do with the crash. I am using a GTX 465 and a Intel Q8200 (gimps the hell out of my video card but there's nothing I can do about it at the moment with my finance), so I presume it has nothing to do with computer specs.

It does require a better card, but if your pets do not look like oddly warped freaky things, reminiscent of adult CC enabled for toddlers, you probably don't need the upgrade.

Oh see, I have encountered that problem where my kitty kat turns into Jack Skeleington (Seriously looks like him cause I used the skeleton coat on my kitty). It occurs for only a second or two, but it seems that would indicate that my card is not powerful enough.  Looks like I'll have to get a new one soon.  Can I lower graphics to possibly keep the game running?

Edit: Even after turning down almost all my graphics from high to medium or low, and disableing advanced rendering, the game still crashes after a few seconds of play without AM or any other third party mods.  I don't know what to do, but this is so not good.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: Beldara on 2011 October 20, 22:48:11
same problem here. Random CTD after a few seconds of playing.  It doesn't appear to be AM since there's no error messages, but it does work fine with no mods running at all  :-[

Everything patched. Latest version of AM. I have an Nvidia GTX 470, with latest drivers, so more than enough to handle the Sims. 


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread

No crashes, no CTDs.

Post by: J. M. Pescado on 2011 October 21, 01:10:45
I am unable to reproduce the random crashing at the moment, nor identify its apparent cause. Be sure that you are using the latest version, as versions change frequently at this time. DO NOT ATTACH XCPT LOGS, they are EVEN MORE USERESS THAN WHINE.

AS for the game allegedly crashing when removed, no doubt a coincidence caused by the fact that you can't actually play the game in that state, so stop quickly.

Also getting random CTD with latest version of AM, pets installed. Uninstalling AM, no more CTD, my niece's computer which has 0 Custom content, and only had the latest version of AM on it, and only has base game and Pets on it, also experienced CTD after ~10 mins of play ON LIVE MODE ONLY.

Building houses, CAS, etc etc, it's all perfectly fine, but as soon as you start playing live mode for awhile you get the CTD.

CTD are occurring in all hoods, I did a clean install before loading pets, and installed only your latest version of AM, and was getting CTD no matter which hood I played in once I hit live mode.

Small bug but I may aswell mention it. It appears when changing the lot zoning to community. The lot type list looks like this with AM:

I just installed the new version of AM.  It worked a lot longer than it has been working, let me play maybe like 2-3 minutes instead of 10 seconds.  Still CTD though after a few minutes.  I have no CC, no othermods, full clean install except for AM.  Although I was having crashing problems without AM, although that could have been related to an outdated no cd crack.

When my sim was trying to train her new dog to hunt with AM in place, to see if there was a conflict with the newly fixed Spellbook/Fountain, both of their needs started dropping rapidly to the point where I had to set needs to static to keep them from dying instantly.

edit: And I crashed about 8 sim hours later.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: J. M. Pescado on 2011 October 21, 18:49:38
That's quite odd, considering that nothing has modded dog training yet. Do you have a save of this setup right before it occurs, along with what you do to trigger it, that I could look at?


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: Moryrie on 2011 October 21, 19:06:11
No. But I could probably re-create one.

Got it. Just have the lady select the 'train to hunt' option on the adult dog. Dogs motives will drop. Fast. If you raise the dog's motives up, they'll continue dropping again. Sim's motives are dropping too, but not as fast as the dog's.

Investigated motive drop issue. Apparently it is caused by chain-EAxis-fail, because they made some odd assumptions in the code without bothering to error-check. No idea WHY that happens. The error probably exists in the EAxis version, too, but is hidden from the user because of the way they timestamp.

Registered to report a bug.

My sim is a firefighter and the game was running fine until she got a disaster job to deal with, it crashed to desktop after a few minutes, I've updated to the latest AM and taken out all other mods and it's still happening. She works from home and had recently got a horse. I don't know if it's the horse or the job causing the crash. Is there any other information you need?

I'm also experiencing this. I suppose it's hardly gamebreaking... but still, it's a visual annoyance.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread

Relating to the dog motive drop when training. I haven't tried it in game myself but believe it may be partially deliberate due to this info found in the Lessons; "Make sure to include some play time in between training sessions as dogs can quickly become fatigued while being trained".

ETA: Should have kept my mouth shut until I tested in game myself. Played first off without AM and trained a dog to level one of hunting with no issues what so ever. Motive drop was very reasonable.

Reloaded the save today to contiinue training and, after the Sim and dog were reset in place and I re-qued training, the dog's motives dropped almost immediately into the red!


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: LadyAmarra on 2011 October 21, 23:31:32
I found the following: The rapid motive drop is not only a dog thing. Horses seem to have it too. I played a horse for several hours without AM and he's at level 9 now, barely dropping a sweat - with AM however, his motives drop within about a second into the red. Especially the thirst is red so fast, he virtually drops the training action as soon as the icon pops up in the corner which makes training impossible.

The game also still crashes - black screen and the previously mentioned Sims 3 does not work anymore note: it takes between a couple of seconds and a whole sims day.

This is more than 'quickly fatigued'. This is everything but social and fun dropping at a rate that causes a 'feed your dog before the social worker comes and gets him' balloon to pop up, within a few seconds of initiating the action.

Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: Trinity on 2011 October 22, 02:41:01
Yes, the motive drop is crazy! It happened to me with a horse ... every time I would send the horse off lot to anywhere it's motives would drop very quickly. I have been playing with AM removed for about a sim week now and all the animals can leave the lot with worrying about them getting taken by the social worker or whatever it is that comes to take them.

I should say that I didn't play with AM for very long, because my stupid pets kept getting taken away because I wasn't realizing what was happening, till my horse that had all high motives got taken away when I sent him to the equestrian park. I had sent my sim over there to make him happy again but she was at work and by the time she got there it was too late.  ;D

Also I was playing one of the pre-made families the Marshall family and I noticed I could not send both adults to work at the same time, every time I would try to send the husband or wife to work and the other was already there, the one I was trying to send just kinda dropped the que. He/she would call the cab or the family vehicle but it would just drop out of the que. Not sure what was going on, I thought maybe it was because they had a fowl but when the horse grew up, they still couldn't leave the house at the same time.  ???

Well, I found out the cause of the "Blank lines" in Edit Town, anyway: Having EnableLotLocking that enables you to click the locks also displays "hidden" lot types, which do not have strings. Not really AwesomeMod specific, other than that AwesomeMod turns that on when you enable testingcheats by default. Next version will include added strings. Trying to reproduce mysterious crashes now.

Good luck with that, they seem to be completely random. Last night it was while I was browsing the pet shop, this morning I had one while my Sim was sleeping and another when my horse was drinking out of the water trough. Oh and i've had the game just freeze up for no apparent reason on the Pet Shop lot when I tried to add a bird to the birdcage there, probably not the smartest idea and that one was my own fault.

...and not a single issue in over 2 hours of play

Was getting miscellaneous issues including complete lock ups after about 3 minutes of play, but this version seems very stable.  Will try the 10:38pm version tomorrow.

Another firefighter related possible AM crash to report, my sim was dealing with a large house fire when a deer wandered onto the lot  and a wild horse did ... something (wasn't paying attention) with my sim that interupted them putting out the fires. The crash happened as she was breaking down doors and persuading the screaming idiot sims to run for their lives, I had a few actions qued so I'm not entirely sure which one she was doing at the time. I loaded again and redid the large house fire with no crash, there were no wild animals on the lot that time so I'm assuming they were the problem.

Cannot identify any reason for Pet Store Register malfunctions, as this is an unmodified core-game object not intrinsic to the store.

I decrapified the store and installed it and have the same issue with not being able to buy anything from the register. The lot type Pet Store also does not show up on the list of available venues when I'm designating a community lot.

Both of these work fine, however, if I use a package containing only the non-decrapified OBJD and OBJK resources for the register. I can then buy items from the decrapified register and the venue shows up in the list as it should. Something seems to be looking for one or both of these resources with the Group ID 0x01.

Updated Awesomemod, updated aweconfig as well (just in case) but it seems that the extended sliders no longer work on the full-body sliders.  Double-checked it, made sure the extended CAS sliders is enabled, & grabbed an Aweconfig set at 5x to be sure.  My skinny Sims have gained weight; my fat Sims have lost weight.  The slider range for fit/fat, muscle, & the LN breasts slider don't give anywhere near the range as they used to.  Default & custom facial sliders appearing in the Advanced facial editing tabs in CAH still appear to multiply just fine.

I have no hacked objects, no hacks other than Awesomemod & a few extra facial sliders.  Game is updated to Pets patch 10.0.96.013001  Cleared cache/temp & tested with only Awesomemod/aweconfig (no other CC or store items at all) to make sure it's not a conflict.  Same result.

Good news, all errors I found yesterday have been solved with the latest version update. No crash, no motive drop, no dead animals. And the Overstuffed houses works too, with all animals and all essential functions.

However, there is a moodlet thing going on. I don't know if it's EA fail, or not, but when I teach a kid to talk or walk, all members of the household have the notification that they just showed toddler x how to walk/talk. The same happens with the pregnancy annoucements and the reading of the pregnancy books. All members of the household, even toddler aged kids have the notice. Does this have to do with AM?


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: Maranatah on 2011 October 22, 18:52:09
Is anyone else getting the age sliders reset to 0 every time the game loads? It seems to happen even without AM so I guess it's Eaxis fail (once again)?

Okay, still trying to pinpoint if AM is the cause or not.

Had a premade sim in Appaloosa Plains visit the hotspot of the night and saved just as he arrived on the lot. Despite there being a rope on the door and a bouncer he walks straight THROUGH the rope and door, niether open, and enters the lot. Me being me, I told him to ask the bouncer for access, so he walks back outside, this time with both the door and rope opening for him only to have the game lock up and CTD as soon as he begins to speak to the bouncer.

Taking AM out and this doesn't happen although that could be as both Sims, mine and the bouncer, get reset when I take AM out and run the save.

ETA: Ran the save again with AM in and cancelled the interaction to go to the lot. He continued to walk through both rope and door again without them opening. Got him back outside on the porch and waited for his action que to be empty before clicking on the bouncer and selecting "Ask to let in". The lock up and CTD happened again as soon as they began to interact, so there is a bug somewhere there.

Hey guys, have encounter a few small, non game breaking issues since new AM update.  While the game works, thank God, I'm having a couple aesthetic and building errors.

1st.  My main sim will not stop dripping water, as if he is sweating or soaked.  He was just working out, I think it is a bug that got stuck to him while working out. Its hard to see but you can see droplets, and they countinue while in live mode. Picture followed:

(http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n188/xblackninjax/Screenshot-2.jpg)     (http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n188/xblackninjax/Screenshot-3.jpg)


2nd. Next issue I got while building.  I was trying to stretch out the foundations, it works fine if im going horizontal, but if I try to strech it vertically it gives me horizontal errors and pulling it does nothing.  Picture as follows:

(http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n188/xblackninjax/Screenshot.jpg)

3rd. Final issue, you can see it in last picture kind of, that set of round stairs that goes into my basement.  Before patch 1.26 I could use the stairs to get into my basement, no problem, even with foundation all around it.  Post past 1.26 I can not go down my stairs unless I delete like a 10x10 square of foundation around it before I can use it. I know your not supposed to be able to put those stairs in foundation but it wasn't a problem before.

I believe this problem is EAxian in origin, going by similar reports by people who don't use AM. And I'm personally finding that I can't even place basement stairs on lots even if the offending foundation is deleted entirely.  :-\

Finally.Could an unnecessary mod cause a conflict and crash the game somehow? Because now it crashes when I save and quit the game occasionally (save game ends up fine, it seems to crash as soon as it's done writing the save files) and just once in Hidden Springs and both crashes were caused by Custom Content according to the crash log analyzer.

CRTL-Shift-Click -> Force Reset. That has nothing to do with AwesomeMod, that's regular borkedness.

Yea I figured I could just reset sim but I didn't know if I should report or not, so I stayed on safe side, thanks!

With Awesomemod breeding horses doesn't cause pregnancy. The animation plays fine, however there is no 'impregnation successful' sound nor foal after any amount of time.

Having the same problem, although I haven't tested without Awesomemod yet.

Should be fixed now. Was caused by the check for valid pregnancy uniforms, so as not to allow it if there weren't any valid uniforms installed, resulting in the sim disappearing, but animals don't have or need those.

[MOVED FROM GENERAL AWESOME DISCUSSIONS]

Noticed on Awesome for patch 1.26 that it has not been tested with Pets, but thought I'd report my findings anyway.

I've suffered constant crashing in The Sims 3 Pets, and by default I blamed EA (who wouldn't?). So, I uninstalled the works, and put pure vanilla back in my computer. Game didn't crash. After adding one thing after the other into the game to see if and when it would crash, I hate to report that Awesome causes Pets to CTD. I have tested with vanilla+awesome only, twice - crashes both times. Without awesome, it hasn't crashed yet.

Is this something anyone else has experienced? Could it be some of my specific awesome settings?

Having been a long-time user (albeit first time poster) of this mod, I find it unbearable to think I cannot have it in my game... well, I probably won't even play the Sims without it. I can provide all possible information if needed. And, just in case some smartass wants to ask - yes, I'm well above minimum reqs, drivers are up to date, and yadda yadda. This time, as much as I hate to admit it, awesome is the sole cause of the crashes for me atm (that is, until I continue testing EA crap, as I am currently testing vanilla against mods until I have determined which ones are defenitely safe).

-------------

Added today... after my continued testing, it is now conclusive. Hopefully you can find the issue. Like I said... this is with awesome and 100% vanilla Sims 3, all expansions + high-end loft. So it's not a conflict with another mod or anything.


Noticed you updated awesome today. Giving that a run now, and I'll let you know if it changes anything.

SOLVED:

Yes, the new version seems to have fixed the problem. Thanks ! Now I can begin exploring the world of Pets.

Well, lied implies it was done maliciously. Honestly, we delete those files as a traditional voodoo rite. Nobody really knows why, how, or if it works. However, while all the other files have known functions that have nothing to do with scripts and are therefore unlikely to crash, the tiny scriptcache file is a bit of a mystery, since it serves no apparently useful purpose...so...we nuke it from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

I keep getting the control panel/hud missing upon loading neighborhood. It had happened on 2 separate neighborhood now, both are appaloosa plains. It appears that the save is basically corrupted, as the entire household is missing. And if I tried to forcehud using mastercontroller and choose other households, the hud would be missing again. How can I stop this from happening? I didn't even "save and quit", just save.

I recently started a new sim in a new town, and just went abroad with him for the first time, to Egypt. I collected all the items from egypt (camera/tent/shower-in-a-can/food/skill books etc.), and also got a load of gems from exploring the Great Sphinx (I was cursed by a mummy).

However, when I got back to my home town, a load of the items I had gathered had gone. All the gems/rocks, moneybags and artifacts, the storage chests, cherries, pomegranites, and crocodiles, the skill/food books, and I think all 3 cameras (I bought all 3 types of camera to test if the camera stuck bug affects all of them). Some stuff didn't dissappear, like the mummified teddy. The only error ErrorTrap recorded was the 4 crocodiles I tried to bring back:

Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: Vertiginious on 2011 October 23, 17:04:51
I seem to be experiencing an aging problem with the latest version of AwesomeMod. I wanted to point this out because other users seem to have dismissed it as an Eaxian problem, but I don't have it without AM or with an older version of AM.

Basically, when I place a new family, they're almost totally done with their current ages instead of being near the beginning. Adults have about 17 days left (and I set it at 60), young adults have 0 (also set to 60) and indeed will age up the next day.

I do not have this problem with the un-modded game. Unmodded, it still starts a few days into the life stage, but only 2 or 3 so it doesn't bother me, whereas with AM it is almost completely done upon starting. It should be noted that the 10/19/11 8:09AM version of AM does not cause this problem for me. That version had no CTD issues for me, and no aging problems. Unfortunately, it had the bug of pet motives dropping in about 2 seconds, so I had to install the most recent one which seems stable in every way except for the age issue.

I don't know what exactly is causing this but how bad the bug is seems to vary depending upon the age lengths you set. Specifically, it seems like somehow the game is reading the % along the bar that you are, rather than the number of days you set. Here's what I mean:

(http://i51.tinypic.com/2hnpfsp.jpg)

When I select long sim lifespan and max all the bars out, as in Figure A, I get more days than when I set the sliders like in Figure B, despite the fact that Figure B is set to be more days than Figure A is.
When set like in Figure A, my adults start with around 37 days and young adults start with similar. Not terrible considering I only asked for 45.
But when I select epic sim lifespan and set my ideal numbers, as seen in Figure B, my adults start with around 17 days and my young adults start with 0! Which is pretty terrible considering what I tried to set it to. So I don't know if this makes sense from a programming standpoint, but it seems like somehow lifespans are determined by how maxed out the life bars are, rather than by the actual number of days you set.
When I max out epic lifespan, it is also not perfect but closer, giving me several 100 days, just not the full amount. It's not game breaking but it is pretty frustrating that right now I can only play with less than 45 days or more than 180 and nothing in between.

I don't either. That error isn't an AwesomeMod error, nor does it reference any AwesomeMod code. So...I will watch for it, but it could just be your game buggered from something you did.

Basically, when I place a new family, they're almost totally done with their current ages instead of being near the beginning. Adults have about 17 days left (and I set it at 60), young adults have 0 (also set to 60) and indeed will age up the next day.
By "new fambly", do you mean that these sims are actually related, or that you just created a single sim? If this is happening with just a single sim unrelated to other sims, that is unusual. If it is happening to sims that you have made parents, children, siblings, etc, of each other, using AwesomeCASRules, this is normal: If you give a sim a child, its age will be bumped up to whatever it needs to be so that the sim could actually have the other sim as a child. This in turn dependent on your aging settings, where if you use unnatural values, your sims won't have lifecycles that are familiar to humans.

To avoid all this, I recommend getting the latest "ruleof6" defaults, which makes all of the age durations realistic for both people and animals (dogs last about 12+ scale years, cats about 14+, horses about 25+).

Anyway, if you're certain you haven't done anything weird and fallen into a logic trap, you can just reset entirely by typing "resetage" into the console with the debug commands enabled. I had that ages ago while hunting down other factors.

Oops, yeah, that wasn't very specific. The sims in question aren't related. I haven't tested it out with children yet. I noticed the thing where young adult mothers will be aged up a bit before now. That's what I was referring to when I noticed discrepancies of a few days. I haven't tested out that family though since I noticed that issue. The sims I was having a problem with was a "family" of 6 sims, but all of them were unrelated young and regular adults, no children. So I couldn't figure out any logical reason for their ages to be advanced, especially not as far along as they were (my totally unattached young adult male began with 0 days left in that lifestage.) Just thought I'd clear that up in case it's relevant.

I will try both of the fixes that you suggest. Thank you.

Do new neighborhoods do the same thing? It's possible that something is wrong with your save.

I downloaded it again today when the game started crashing, and it was still happening, but it is the very latest one. On another note, I loaded a new neighborhood up, and no crashing. So then I went back into my old save and the game loaded up unpaused, and no crashing occurred. I did load it after taking AM out earlier today, and the saved & quit when it didn't crash, which reset the town by not having AM in. So maybe it was an action someone or something was doing that was crashing it before. Its not happening now, and I reloaded 5x earlier and crashed every time before taking AM out. So it wasn't a coincidence. I don't know what the deal is now, but it appears to be working fine.

Can't reproduce this. You're probably just doing something computationally intensive on a computer not well suited for it. Some of AwesomeMod's modules are more computationally intensive, including Supreme Commander and Story Progression, and running too many sims with these can occasionally cause hiccups.

Yes, I have now managed to get my horses to breed. For some reason, the "Pregnant" moodlet (that stork must have superpowers if it carries an actual foal) doesn't have an expiration time, so I'll be interested to see how long it takes.

Ah, then that countdown is one more example for how one gets used to the awesomeness so that one believes it is a game feature...

I have observed something else that might be Awesomemod-related: Young animals are not supposed to have/fulfill wishes. But it does appear that they do in fact get them. Even though the relevant interface slot for a new wish is covered up, the halo-like effect that happens with a new wish appearing can sometimes be seen shining behind it, and if one changes between Sims quickly, one can sometimes get a glimpse of the icon of the wish in the upper panel.

It's also possible to fulfill these wishes - one sometimes sees a number of points and the Lifetime Reward symbol appear over the head of the animal, for example if it is hungry and one sends it to eat while it apparently had a wish to do so. Probably somehow connected to the Awesomemod feature of getting points for non-locked wishes?

My mare is for a reason or another unable to conceive with AM enabled. I removed all mods and put them back one by one, AM is the one causing this, no conflicting mods enabled. At least one other person is suffering the same bug. I'm not sure if this breeding problem spans onto other pets. Paid fertilization isn't working either. Sims are having babies just fine, however.

Curiously enough, it was my male sim shooting blanks, but as soon as I updated AM to the most current test version, suddenly boom, he got the bullseye and she was running for the toilet to throw up. Weirdly, my stallion has done alright, particularly with this recent test build.

Not AwesomeMod, since AwesomeMod does not give or remove wants. If they're really there, then they're really there, no matter how you try to cover them up with a plastic interface cover.

It's also possible to fulfill these wishes - one sometimes sees a number of points and the Lifetime Reward symbol appear over the head of the animal, for example if it is hungry and one sends it to eat while it apparently had a wish to do so.

With the latest build, I get that my game lags out if I put even one sim on Supreme Commander. If I take SC off again, my game runs smooth as a baby's back, but as soon as I put any sim under SC, it lags so bad that I can't even get it to pause without waiting 6 minutes (yes I timed). I know you said SC is computar intensive, but can it be <i>this</i> much of a difference?

Seriously? ONE sim? I can't say I've noticed this. I run entire famblies of 4 or 5 sims along with several others in other households just fine. Admittedly I have a fairly beefy machine, but TS3 is extremely bad at using newer machines anyway, so the performance difference should be minimal at best, since TS3 is still single-core-only, having basically no ability to use multiple cores. The only reason I can think of that this might happen is that you've constructed an intentionally degenerate neighborhood optimized for worst-case performance of everything. I can't even imagine what that would look like.

Actually, it was on a vacation hood - in France. In Normal Hood, it works fine again. Huh.

I noticed this yesterday with a sim in Egypt. I had set him to "Collect Dig Sites" with SC and my game would seemingly suddenly start to run at a crawl at random as you described. I finally figured out that it was happening when he was trying to reach the unreachable excavation sites on the small island there.

The action would queue up, it would get the blocked thought bubble, and then re-queue. Anyway, whenever those particular sites which he could not reach became the 'target' for SC, my game crawled almost to a halt. I'd pause the game, cancel SC, teleport him to the island to clear the excavation sites then pop him back onto the mainland and turn SC back on. Stopped the freezing completely. It's an easily reproducible error. If you set a sim to that task from the expensive Egyptian house those are the first sites the sim targets.

I'm using 1.24 final and have the all expansions and stuff packs except pets. Game is patched to 1.24. Date on Awesome.package is 10/18/11 at 10:14 AM.

AwesomeMod scrubs the gameplay data, so that no useful or intelligible data will be sent: The actual connection attempts occur for unknown purpose and at a lower level than scriptcore, so you will still need firewall there. This is just a simple thing to prevent spying on your gameplay.

With the 10/25/20011--9:53am version of AwesomeMod, my horse's wants are no longer fullfilled unless he locks them first.

With the 10/24/2011--11:08am version of AM, my horse get's his wants fullfilled, and gets the points for them, whether or not he locks them first.

In both cases, FullfillWantsWithoutLocking = True in Setconfig.
My human sim has his wants fulfilled without locking with either version.
This is with a saved game that I have been using without issue, want locking or otherwise, for the past few AM test versions.  I have no idea if the issue is present with dogs or cats.

There has been no change to the want locking system at all, so whatever you're seeing is just a strange artifact of some wants being broken by default, sometimes losing their listeners so that they just don't trigger properly.

What does AM cause to happen between 3 and 4am? Because I'm crashing to desktop with just one household, always at around 3.30 in the morning, and only when AM (up to date - 2011-Oct-25 20:18:04 version) is installed. No other saves are affected by this, and the fated hour passes just fine with AM removed.

I'm perfectly willing to accept that the problem is with the save itself, rather than an actual AM bug, since it seems to only affect this one household, but I'm curious to know what could be causing it that AM finds so upsetting and crashworthy at that particular hour that nothing else is picking up on.

Not that I doubt you, but let me clarify.  This occurs using the same save game file.  If I have the 10/25 version of AM installed and load the file, if my horses wants to play with the horsey ball, the want is not fullfilled unless it is locked.  If I have the 10/24 version of AM installed, and load the same save game file, then the want to play with the horsey ball is fullfilled whether or not is is locked.

I find it very odd that the "strange artifact", only shows up with the 10/25 version of AM, even when using the same save game file and using the same wish as a test.

That's actually understandable. Sometimes patching will break all of the listeners for a want. Are we talking about the exact same particular instance of a want? Try killing any want that for some reason won't trigger even when its conditions are met, and seeing if it afflicts future instances of it.

What does AM cause to happen between 3 and 4am?
Nothing. There is no special event that occurs at that time, although it's possible some bug or form of neighborhood corruption comes to roost then. I haven't seen this, though. My game hasn't crashed in ages since I've been playing it.

I recently started a new sim in a new town, and just went abroad with him for the first time, to Egypt. I collected all the items from egypt (camera/tent/shower-in-a-can/food/skill books etc.), and also got a load of gems from exploring the Great Sphinx (I was cursed by a mummy).

However, when I got back to my home town, a load of the items I had gathered had gone. All the gems/rocks, moneybags and artifacts, the storage chests, cherries, pomegranites, and crocodiles, the skill/food books, and I think all 3 cameras (I bought all 3 types of camera to test if the camera stuck bug affects all of them). Some stuff didn't dissappear, like the mummified teddy. The only error ErrorTrap recorded was the 4 crocodiles I tried to bring back

I'm having the same issue with missing inventory -- my sim had an Opportunity that could only be filled by going to Egypt, and lost a bunch of inventory while there (all their caught fish from their home world) and when they arrived back home didn't have anything but the fruit they purchased/harvested. I'm running the latest beta of AM and no other hacks.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: J. M. Pescado on 2011 October 30, 04:45:22
I am testing this right now, and all of my inventory made it to Egypt intact. My guess is that this is not intrinsic to AwesomeMod at all, but rather, an effect of the lack of exception handling in the native EAxian code which causes the entire process to derail if one or more inventory objects is corrupt. I will keep an eye out for if this happens when I return.

Hey there. I'm also getting the weird CTD issue where the crashing always occurs between 2:30 AM and 3:50 AM, except for me it happens no matter which household I'm in. When I take Awesome out, the crashes stop. If I go back to an earlier save and replay the day, sometimes the crash won't happen. In this way, I'm moved forward in time slowly. I'd say the crashing happens about 75% of nights and literally only in that time frame.

Can't say I've seen that before. What manner of "Fatal Error"?


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: Claeric on 2011 October 30, 23:31:47
Just the typical popup error window. Absolutely nothing goes wrong and when it goes away I simply get the ctrl-click menu as opposed to ctrl-shift-click.

If it means anything, it first happened when I was controlling a pet, and now happens no matter who I am controlling. I don't think "how something was clicked" would be something saved to persistent memory, though.

From the window all I could catch was it mentions a clicking definition, which is pretty obvious anyway. I'll see if I can snap a shot of it before it goes away.

Linked is a save file that should crash around 3:28, if I remember correctly. It's always in the 0300 hour, but not always at the exact same time-- even if I reload the save file a bunch of times, the crash time will vary slightly. It's odd. As for what I'm doing that could contribute, it's hard to say-- I've left the game to run on its own free will for a while, without any outside commands by me, and it still happens.

I was unable to derive any useful test data from this file, as for some IDIOTIC reason, you did not PAUSE THE GAME before saving, so it immediately runs away before I can do anything with it.

DISREGARD: Despite the complete uselessness of your save, I solved the problem via applying an orbital strke to the problem. It was the only way to be sure. New version should resolve crash.

This error indicates that a sim in your neighborhood, for some reason, has no uniform and is a disembodied floating...well, not even a head, apparently. It is a sign of some kind of neighborhood damage to a sim that is apparently outside of your awareness.

Recommended solution: Rapture. Tag anyone you consider important enough to keep at least temporarily "Chosen", then run therapture to dump anyone who won't be part of the new world.

Just some feed back. I believe your still working with the new Pets Ep, so I just wanted to state a problem I discovered. Twice now I have had a cat go off the grid, and am unable to get them home. They are stuck out in an area they can not return from. They are slowly starving to death, and nothing I have tried has set them on the path home. I just installed Awsome Mod today, and until it was installed I had not encountered this problem before. I am attempted to reload the game now, and hoping it resets my cat.


Edit: Restarting the game didn't seem to help. Poor kitty is still stuck. Any ideas?

I've had this happen to human sims, I just use the reset command on them.

Also:
Not sure if this is something I am doing wrong or what, but my sims seem to have no free will.  In any house I play, even in a new hood, the sims will just stand around doing nothing, to the point of starvation and peeing themselves unless I direct them or have them on some form of SC.  Pets seem fine, but humans just stand there.  I have AM, Master Controller 5, Woohooer 7 and miscellaneous downloads and store crap that doesn't affect behavior.

Any ideas here?  :)

Check that their autonomy is actually turned on? Mine don't seem to have any problems. As for sims running off the grid and getting stuck, that's apparently caused by EAxis not filling in the terrain with nonrouteable spots correctly, resulting in deadzones that sims can teleport into somehow and then be unable to leave. MTS2 has fixes for that.

Regarding the 0300 crashes: I still have no idea what causes it, but I have isolated it in at least one submitted test game to the Stray Pet Pool (which makes it even more baffling because AwesomeMod doesn't really interact with pets). As a temporary workaround, if this starts happening, you can just nuke the pool with "deletehousehold pethousehold", which halted the problem. Odds are you don't really pay any attention to this household anyway, since it mainly consists of random animals you've probably never encountered before.

For the first time, my game is having hissy fits.  Whenever I try to save a town, my game crashes.  It's occurred in a previous save and in completely new games, in different towns.  I've always used AM with no problems.

I have Pets (and all EPs except Generations) installed, fully patched.  Arr'ed store content is decrapified; paid for/free content is not.  (I got Riverview for registering, and Hidden Springs is arr'ed.  Crashes happened in both.)  The latest version of AM is installed; I tried removing non-store CC, except for some mailbox overrides -- still crashes.  Cleared all cache files each time, crash.  I haven't even begun to play with the actual pets yet.

Do you think "deletehousehold pethousehold" will work in this instance (or do you need more info)?

Using Nov 1st package, spotted the family horse standing in trough but drinking from behind it, and the silly sim that owned said horse standing in the bookcase to put a book away. Sorry, was laughing too hard to take screenshots.

No other problems observed in over a week of sim time played, and these aren't really game threatening are they? But, I know the little things can lead to bigger issues, so thought I would mention it.

I have no CC in my game but AwesomeMod & some sliders, and I have all EPs. Everything works fine, but one thing. Whenever I create a new game and try to play one of pre-made families (it doesn't matter which world I play, and they're all EA worlds, or which family), when I click on the house and the play button, it grays out the buttons (to go back to family choice or play the selected family), but the family doesn't open. The menu to save, edit town, go to menu, etc. is still clickable. I tried going to edit town and change active household, but the same happens. Moving in freshly made families and playing them works just fine, so this is the only problem I have encountered.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: J. M. Pescado on 2011 November 03, 13:03:18
Cannot reproduce this issue, that works fine here. The game does not distinguish between premade and you-made in any way.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: Anathea on 2011 November 03, 13:19:11
The problem is probably (so I believe) occuring not because they're premade, but because they're already moved in (so, while I didn't try it, I presume that moving in premade families from sim bin shouldn't be a problem). I've tried removing AwesomeMod and deleting the cache and I could load premade families. I now reinstalled AwesomeMod since I don't really load premade families anyways, and if I really have to, I can still remove the mod to load the family, save, quit, reinstall AwesomeMod and play the save game (which works fine), but I figured I'd still point out the problem :)

Alas, no.

The first household I'd had this bug with, "destroyhousehold pethousehold" did indeed do the trick, 4am passed without incident. When I went to check the same on the second affected household, in a different neighbourhood, first of all it said that it could not find "pethousehold" (I wasn't sure if it was global destruction or on a per 'hood basis, but that was the result, anyway) and then, same old crash between 3 and 4am.

So, like, boo.

The "pethousehold" may be unnamed in your game, as it was in mine. If you list the households, it will come up as a file path ending with "UnnamedHousehold" or something similar. You can't destroy that, though. I used Twallan's MasterController to assign it a name and then destroyed it. The game is running smoothly now. Hope that makes sense.

Victory. 4am has been achieved.

So, is this tactic advisable as a preventative measure in all neighbourhoods until a proper long-term fix is found? I can live happily without strays, and an empty animal shelter is workable just about, but I'm a girl, and therefore want a chance at a damn unicorn.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: J. M. Pescado on 2011 November 03, 17:21:31
I don't advise it as a preventative measure at the moment, since I have never personally encountered this problem despite leaving the stray pool alone, but apparently something can manage to go horribly wrong somehow (How, I don't know, since AwesomeMod has yet to venture into the animal realm...), the solution appears to be to nuke it from orbit. The unicorn was definitely not the problem, since in my attempt to find out WHY this was happening, I randomly nuked half the pet pool, the half the unicorn wasn't in, and that cleared it up. It's not even really a permanent measure, since the pet pool will rapidly regenerate itself. My WAG is that some people have pet pools that stocked up with bad data from earlier versions, and this old junk data is fouling the works somehow.

I do not believe this is an AM issue since I just tested it with nothing but store items. Are you using any store bath tubs? This happens when cats try to play in the store tubs. I'm not sure if it's all store tubs but I know for certain the seven I have cause this to happen. I get them back by teleporting and no longer use store tubs in houses with cats (although you could simply lock the bathroom to pets and only let them in if you need to bathe them). Sims can bathe cats in the tubs but with dogs (large at least) the action gets cancelled out. It sucks but that's the only way to avoid this behaviour.

So that's why the cats keep going off grid. 'resetsim [firstname] [lastname]' is an easy fix.

Got a script error earlier. Told sim to use the macro "Use Bathroom," and she broke or something. Got sent back to her house and whatnot. Xml attached.

This error appears to be impossible unless some very basic elements of your sims are completely broken, but I will add a fix anyway. Even though it seems more like a bandaid on a sucking chest wound in your neighborhood.

A "fixall" earlier in the save did mention that I had a bad sim, and it was her. Something about missing a miniperson? I don't remember the details, but it said "attempting to fix." It's odd, though, considering I had just created her and plopped her into the world that sim morning. Then there was her husband getting the same problem later on.

Eh, I'll start a new save. I was only two days in on that one, anyway.

It happened again on a new save with the same family. I have no idea how I managed to screw them up so well when I've never had any problems like this at all. Now the husband is breaking when he checks the weekly events in the newspaper. Same deal, System.NullReferenceException. Does anybody have any idea what is causing this? Both the husband and wife can "Use Bathroom" when Supreme Commander commands it.

Also, I'm curious to know that a 'miniperson' is. My sim apparently had hers in the new save, at least.

It's a technical term. Basically, sims are often stored in double-entry, with the result that romantic oppositions are stored in quadruplicate. These two records can diverge due to crappy EAxian coding, in particular, causing the bug where a sim cannot remarry after the death of their opponent, because the "Mini" record, used to track sims as they move between neighborhoods (Main & Vacation) incorrectly indicates that they still have an opponent, while their full "SimDescription" record indicates that they don't, causing the game to believe that the sim DOES have an opponent, who didn't accompany it to the vacation/mainworld. The opposite case, "missing minipartner", is where the Mini-record indicates no opponent, while your sim DOES have one, which is not presently linked to any visible error condition on its own, but still represents a data discrepancy found at the same time we look for other errors. A "dangling" entry is one where the relationship is not bidirectional: One record indicates that sim's opponent is some sim, but that sim's record doesn't corroborate this.

perhaps it has to do with setting them as married in CAS?

That's a normal error that is fixed up when you do a fixall, so nothing to worry about.

Crash on save is a mystery. Check to make sure nothing is wrong with your game, that you haven't deleted anything important, that you aren't out of space, etc.

Apparently, it was tight pants.  The Hidden Springs and Barnacle Bay mailbox overrides are fine, but the mod to delete the standard mailboxen seems to be the culprit.  I'm guessing it conflicts with AM.  Or I could be completely wrong, and I fixed the game with voodoo (and lots of head-desk moments and cursing).

Using AM to nuke the standard mailboxen works.  But would it be difficult to add an easier way, also using AM?

According to a code reading, the following conditions could possibly produce that error:
1. The interaction has no actor - How the hell did this interaction even launch again?
2. Your sim has no Interaction Queue - This is a fatal error of a terminally corrupt sim.

Everything else has explicit null testing and cannot produce that error, so I am baffled. If it is a one-time occurrence, just ignore it. If it continues to occur consistently with the same sim every time, send a save.

All sims on the lot have the same bathroom problem.

The family were EAxis originally. Starla, a horse and a unicorn were in the sim bin from another hood and I merged them into this house. Then I created a male, a horse, a dog and a cat in CAS and placed them in the house also.

I don't think this has been mentioned yet...

I recently purchased and installed the Late Night EP. When I went to place the vampire altar on a lot, I noticed the catalog entry is broken (cannot read all of the writing, default recolor options/thumbnails not showing up) while AM is in my game. I removed it, and the catalog entry showed properly; AM was the only hack I had in my mods folder at the time.

Oddly enough, the altar still functions normally in the game as far as I can tell. It's even still CAST-able when I clicked it with the CAST tool in buy mode. It's just the catalog entry and thumbnails that are broken?

Post by: Clara on 2011 November 08, 21:18:29
I'm getting crashes every night in a Week 1 Appaloosa Plains save. I've been saving in the evenings and the crashes usually show up 11PM-1AM. It's incredibly hard to test what could be going on, though, because when I boot up the evening save again the crash is delayed until the next night. I tried destroying the stray pet household but that didn't change anything. Crashes occur with AM as my only mod and stop when I take it out.

Edit: I've been jumping around so many different test saves that I failed to realize the pattern: the game crashes exactly 24 hours after loading the save file. If it was a new hood at 8AM, it'll crash next 8AM. If it was loaded up at 1:42AM, it'll crash next 1:42AM. This is completely consistent across all neighbourhoods that I've tested and I have absolutely no idea why it's happening.

Post by: AJCazz on 2011 November 08, 23:58:07
I'm also having random crashes with the latest AwesomeMod, although mine aren't every 24 hours like the last poster's.  I've removed all other custom content, deleted the cache, and tried with fresh neighborhoods.  I didn't experience the crashes until I updated to the version where Pescado put the Major Update post on the AwesomeMod download page.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: wyvern on 2011 November 09, 00:46:53
Ditto on the random crashes with the very latest build of AM. One thing that might be helpful (or not) is that, while there is no script error log, there was an exception log I opened. I expected to see a memory access violation or something equally unhelpful.

Code:
[Exception info]
date: 2011-11-08
time: 19.44.49
type: BREAKPOINT
address: 0x0058a546 "C:\Games\The Sims 3\Game\Bin\TS3W.exe":0x0001:0x00189546

Is it possible you forgot to remove a breakpoint you had set for debugging on this latest AM build? [11/08/11 @ 9:25AM]

I could upload a save if needed. Though, given the random nature of the crashes, you'd probably have to run it for a sim day or so before it crashed. This is a new sim in a new unaltered neighborhood. New maxis house. Twillian's overwatch and master controller are the only other major mods I'm running. Store content from here the only cc.

Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: wyvern on 2011 November 09, 03:38:35
The crashing has been replaced by random lag. As in game crawls to a slideshow.

This may be tealdeer but more info is always better:

No cc at all - only thing in mods\packages is AM and config. All caches cleared.  AM timestamp is 11/08/11 @ 6:30 PM.

Steps I'm taking:

Start new game in Riverview. Create brand new sim. Plop him in bargain maxis house. Cheat up 8000 to buy easel/sell crap bed/buy decent plumbing and kitchen gear. Set him on Supreme Commander: Skill: Painting.

Within 24-28 sim hours the game starts to suddenly lag. Happens with AM story mode on and off. No crashes so no logs. Making sim sacred and Rapturing the 'hood does not clear lag. Fixall doesn't seem to report anything unusual beforehand (usual bad skill modifiers and phantom butts cleared.)


ETA:

I tried this a fourth time, but this time I used "destroyallhumans" before placing the sim. This time I got no lag at all. However, after about a week or so in-game time (enough for the sim to master painting) on a hunch I checked and there were no pets available for adoption. [I had seen no strays during the entire time I was playing.]

The option on the cell and computer both say "There are no pets available for adoption at the moment, blah blah blah." Thinking then that perhaps something in the pet handling code may be what is causing lag for me. No pets = no lag. Will continue testing various scenarios.

My sims all have free will on and set to highest.  So I'm not sure what their deals are. :)

But also:

In my game I tend to run vampire famblies the most...  SC seems to be unable to handle hungry children.  Kids will be set to SC and when it comes time to eat they will get the action to eat, they are unable to select a meal, the action will drop and SC will try again.  I've tried putting left-overs into the fridge, but they won't eat left-overs, make a quick-meal or drink plasma juice.  I usually have to feed them manually.  As usual, I am not sure if this is a problem in my game only, or what, but I thought I'd post it.

Thank you.  :)

Not sure if this is AM but, I have the config set to not require a parent in child only households. When the active household is just a child, maybe with a pet or two, after I go into edit town, they disappear. The lot shows no residents, choosing another family shows no relationships with that sim, and looking through master controller it shows absolutely no record of that sim ever existing.

I tried creating new sim children to move into a lot by themselves, or separating existing kids from families and same problem. Moving the child with a parent seems to fix this. Trying to save while this goes on causes the UI/HUD to go missing when I reload the game.

This has only been a problem recently, I've been able to play with just a sim child or teen before just fine. I have the newest AM, haven't added anything new to the game, and tried removing all CC except AM just to be sure.

Awesome mod doesn't like the combined science lab and hospital in Appoloosa Plains. In my game if I tell a sim to sell all their collectables they get stuck when it comes to selling the bugs, the diamond icon is the only thing in the que and they just stand there doing nothing, if I remove the insects manually they carry on with selling everything else.

With the new build downloaded today (Nov 12, 6:12AM), the game won't load at all. It will hang indefinitely on the black screen before the Sims logo shows up (and before the intro) and this whether or not I by-pass the launcher. Of course I have tested without any other mods or CC, without the AM tuning file, and I even tried removing my save and library folders.

The game loads normally without AM. My previous build dates back from October 25, and the game loads fine with it, but it is expired. It is quite probable that the problem comes with the major update rolled over on November 7, rather than the latest changes.

I run the game on patch 1.26 with Pets (1.27 on Mac). Maybe it is useful to mention that I run Mac OSX 10.5.8 and I am currently plagued with the infamous horse-freezing bug (game freezes every time it tries to render a horse).

Alternatively, is it possible for me to alter the expiry date of the 25/10 build in s3pe? I noticed an XML instance with "BuildLifeDays value=14", but have been deterred to try due to the "sharp edges" warning so far.

Thanks in advance for your response. I am very concerned about the kittens at EAxis :).

Have you tried with a teen rather than a child?  I have been able to move teens, even a teen and a child, just fine.  I have never been able to move a child on it's own, even with the AM config set for the no adult requirement, the game has still always needed at least a teen to complete the move.

Moving teens does seem to work fine, I only have the problem with a child only. I've been able to do this before, I have often played worlds where there might be some orphan children living on their own. This is only a recent problem I'm having.

The child will move into the house on their own, and at first a babysitter might show up , this has always been the case, and then I can play normally. However now once I go into edit town, that child will disappear, whereas before they would stay.

The 'fulfill wants without locking' doesn't interact as expected with Midlife Crisis wants.  The midlife crisis keeps a count of how many Midlife Crisis wants you've fulfilled, but it doesn't count them if you fill them without locking them first.

I'm using the 11/16 17:18 build and haven't gotten any errors so far, but I do want to say that I'm with the group of people whose Hand of God function is broken. And for whatever reason, the game doesn't autosave either. The config is set to "on" for both.

I do have Twallan's MasterController, Overwatch, and ErrorTrap (not traveler, or whatever)--though I was using those (updated) in conjunction with Awesomemod until the second to last build, which I believe is what caused those Awesome features to stop functioning.

Disableclothingfilter doesn't cause the outfits to disappear, but it DOES cause the "custom content only" filter to be turned on by default instead of off, because if it is not turned on, the game will list everything all at once, which immediately chokes the computer. Since you most likely wanted a piece of CC or custom-colored item anyway, this gives you faster access to your item without waiting 15 minutes for the entire thing to finish rendering. unlock outfits doesn't do this because it's a purely EAxian functionality, and doesn't add bajillions of items to your list all at once.

Sims stand for long periods of time before engaging in next queued activity and the clock will jump anywhere from half hour to around an hour instead of progressing by minute or at most two to three minute increment jumps while in 'normal' speed.

That only happens if your computer overloads, possibly due to pathing failures in the default world. Removing AwesomeMod would likely trigger a world reset, temporarily resolving this, but it is not specifically caused by AwesomeMod.

With latest build (11/24 9:34 am), I am experiencing tremendous lag and odd time jumps. Sims stand for long periods of time before engaging in next queued activity and the clock will jump anywhere from half hour to around an hour instead of progressing by minute or at most two to three minute increment jumps while in 'normal' speed.

Took out AwesomeMod (my only installed mod) and problem does not occur.



I am having this exact same problem with this build. Updating Awesomemod was the only change I made to my game before this started to happen.

So, I don't know if this is for sure an AM bug. But, I sent my sim to get plastic surgery and then played a bit, exited game, saw there was an update for AM, installed it. Went back into game and my sim had reverted back to her shape before surgery. And yes I had saved it after said surgery.

So my question is, is this EA f up or is this possibly AM??

And yes I searched, but did not find answers.

No idea. I've never seen that before. Or, for that matter, used that feature. Since that feature has never been modified, touched, or even looked at, I really doubt it's anythng AwesomeMod-related.

This could be AM related or not. I doubt it is, but I figured I would mention it just in case. Starting a new town (Appaloosa Plains), I used the Destroyallhumans command and created a family (man and dog) and moved them in. A few days of game time passed and my dog was guarding the house. A burglar came (the silly dog did nothing, but I figure he needs to be trained or something), only the burglar was invisible. The music played and I figured it was because the dog was guarding. But from nowhere, a white sack appeared in the bathroom and the toilet and sink were stolen. The police came and had a fight with thin air (and lost). This was about 5 minutes of real world time and the burglar still didn't show up.


EDIT: I should probably add that I am using the latest version of AM.

You can revert that option back to EAxis default in the config manager. It is, however, a feature: What possible use could having the game immediately run amok anyway have? The idea is to stop and issue a new order! An improvement to this mode will be forthcoming in an upcoming version, as requested by Fat Gwilly People.

I always assumed the function of speed four unpausing was for when you have ALREADY given them a long que of actions where the first might be something boring like sleep. That way you can have the game speed through that and then resume normal speed as your Sim continues on with the previously qued actions.
In other words, I still prefer how it was originally designed and hope that the 'improvement' will still allow it to be turned off. Not that I ever use speed four anyway.

The feature added to AWESOMEMOD that brings about a paused game following an ULTRA speed setting of "4" can be disabled when customizing AWESOMEMOD for yourself in the configuration menu. I luxuriate in this facet of the diamond that is AWESOMEMOD, whilst my daughter lamented that the game had somehow "messed up" her 4th speed. That is why we are utilizing two separate, personalized config files, swapping one out for the other depending on who is Simming. It has worked well for us. You may want to investigate the options available, and design your own experience accordingly! You are the king of your keep, as they say.

We appreciate that concern very much, Shiggy, but there are other key characteristics in AWESOMEMOD that my daughter and I do not see eye to eye on. For instance, PEDOPHILES have no place and are not accepted in my game, whether they can be condemned or not. She also favours SIMS 2 style aging, while I do not. There other other tweaks and twacks that differ between our play styles, too, which make swapping configurations the most desirable method. We also have respective "CC" configurations established within the now titled application, "CC Magic", conceived and created by one GRANT HESS. My daughter fancies oodles of "CC", while I like but a little.

Oh yes, and do not worry Menaceman, I would never aim at the innocent!

Well, if you want to do such a baffling thing, you can, I suppose. Why one queued action would be any less boring than another, I don't know. The next edition will speed through the entire freaking queue, and stop when you run out of orders.

In other words, I still prefer how it was originally designed and hope that the 'improvement' will still allow it to be turned off. Not that I ever use speed four anyway.
Yes, all of this will be in the config. But like you said: You never use speed 4 anyway...because in the default incarnation, it is useless!

With the latest build of AM installed, I'm having severe bouts of random crashing while playing. As well, when I save and go to exit the game to the desktop, it crashes every single time. I removed AM and play-tested again and had no crashes at all.

I'm with base game 1.26, World Adventures, Ambitions, and Late Night.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: J. M. Pescado on 2011 December 03, 07:38:43
I'm very skeptical that any crashes are specifically new in AwesomeMod, since you're the first one to report it, and the s3gs file hasn't been altered since 11/28, which is the main source of crash-related issues. I will, however, keep watching for it, even though I have seen nothing like it in my own game. What are you doing that causes it?

And if you're exiting the game and it drops to the desktop, it's sort of supposed to do that.

Do you have any other CC in your game? Have you cleared out your caches? I've had AM installed (with everything installed minus Town Life) and I've experienced no problems. I did experience once instance of crashing when Pets first came out, but that has since been fixed and as far as I've read, the crashing problems seem to have ended.

Since I have installed the latest version of awesomemod yesterday I can grab and move every object in live mode. Is this a new feature? I couldn't find anything about it in the manual. I hope I can turn that off in the config as I fear to accidentally move anything while I play.

EDIT: I disabled MoveInventoryObjects again and now everything is back to normal. However that setting doesn't work anyway in my game. I'm still not able to remove stuck cameras.

I don't mean it exits to the desktop, it literally crashes trying to exit. I click Exit, the screen goes black like the game is going to stop, then it pops up with the "this program has stopped responding" window. Every time with AM in my mods folder. When I remove it, it exits fine... no crashes.

I have no other mods installed, I cleared all four caches in the Sims 3 folder, etc. Tested it with and without AM. Crashed with AM in the mods folder... didn't crash with it removed.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: J. M. Pescado on 2011 December 04, 00:44:45
I haven't the slightest idea what could cause that since nothing would be running while you are quitting. Plus, I haven't really seen this and don't regard it as a major issue, since you are already quitting.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: wowzeroonie on 2011 December 04, 03:29:00
Even though I do agree with you that the crashing as I exit the game isn't that big of a deal, what really hurts (and as I also stated in my earlier posts) is the random crashing that occurs during my actual gaming sessions. As I said, I've been having random crashes both while playing and while trying to exit.

The fact of the matter is that these crashes are happening while I have AM in the game. I can remove it, clear my caches, and it no longer happens. I'm fairly certain that it's something that's pertaining to the latest build because this hasn't happened with any previous version of AM until this point.

I guess I'll wait and check everything with the next couple of updates to AM. If it still happens, I'll just remove it and play with Story Progression turned off. AM is the only thing that makes it worth having the Story Progression enabled.

Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: wowzeroonie on 2011 December 04, 09:16:04
With the random crashes, it seems most of the time that they occur while I'm playing on the 2nd or 3rd speed (skipping through showering, sleeping, etc.). Rarely, it will happen while the game is going in normal speed, but almost always with the higher speeds. I've already explained the crashing while exiting thing. I save my game (Save As... World Name), then I click Exit. It goes to the black screen like the game is going to shut down, then it pops up with the error window that it's stopped responding.

I've cleared the caches numerous times, made sure my saved game wasn't corrupt, added the Sims 3 to the DEP list so I don't get any Data Execution Prevention crashes... I'm pretty much at a loss on this one.

The last time that I updated my version of AM (using the AwesomeMod automatic updater here from the site) was November 30th because it said that the copy of AM that I had installed would expire December 2nd. When I did the update and went back into the game to continue playing, I've been having these crashes since then. I had no problems before this latest update.

I have not seen this posted, so I am assuming it is something blowing up in my own game again but as usual I will mention it just in case.

Recently, as in since the RHoG was fixed, I have noticed that my sims will not be instructed to use their cars when going to and from rabbit holes to collect funds while on SC.  As stated before, I tend to run vampire households, so their speed while running isn't all that terrible, but it seems rather odd to have them running clear across town to carry out an order instead of jumping into their car.  I don't really mind it except that the last time they all went collecting SC kept dragging my pregnant sim out of the house, hungry and unable to run, to waddle across town.  :D 

I am currently playing in Appaloosa Plains, if that matters any.  I have noticed them running about during other activities as well, but I cannot recall the actual scenarios, it is just most common while collecting funds.

Thank you.

As per your suggestion, I created a 2nd Sunset Valley and tested it with EA-xis made sims only; I tested the save/exit situation, play-tested on normal speed as well as various speed fast-forwarding, and there's no lag or crashes at all.

So, there's apparently something that's broken/corrupted in my main Sunset Valley neighborhood. I honestly don't know what FUBARed it and why it seems to have happened about the same time that I update AM last time, but maybe this was a good thing in the long run. If my neighborhood is indeed damaged, I'll have a chance to back everyone up to the library and transfer them to a new location.

Thanks so much, Pescado, for helping me with these problems.

The final decision to use a car or not as part of routing is still determined by some EAxian code. Does this failure to use a car and instead run across the entire neighborhood occur when the sims doing so are the active household, or only when they are not? Does everyone have their own car? If sims are sharing a car, it is possible that one sim hogs the car and forgets to return it, thus resulting in sims being deprived of the car.

If one of those sims led to the corruption in the first place, or have become corrupted as a result of the corrupted hood, you'll just be transferring the problem to the new hood.

Post by: J. M. Pescado on 2011 December 06, 07:14:55
Usually, the cause of neighborhood corruption is a non-played sim rather than a player-run sim, however, since players tend to notice damage to sims they are playing before the situation gets out of hand, whereas an unplayed sim can accumulate corruption until something fatal occurs. Dumping them tends to resolve most issues relating to neighborhood freezes, lags, etc.

I experienced something similar in a custom neighborhood: Every sim who lives in a house in the neighborhood seems to prefer walking over driving to get to community lots. This does not happen with the currently active family; they use their cars or a taxi. But while being inactive they will only rarely (or maybe even never) use cars or taxis. It doesn't matter whether every sim in the inactive household ows his/her own car, or they own one, or they own none.
I think, they mostly use taxis to get home again once they reach their destination, but I'm not sure.

I was assuming this was either a routing problem in this particular custom neighborhood or a sign of corruption of the savegame as I didn't experience this before. But now I'm interested whether this is a more common problem.
RHoG is disabled in my game.

Post by: J. M. Pescado on 2011 December 07, 01:45:51
This isn't actually a "problem", this is a dubious EAxian "feature", where a sim will just RANDOMLY decide to perform an 8-hour cross-country hike to reach the destination they've been pushed to go, instead of routing normally.

I choose not to use driveways in my homes because the sims will park their cars and leave them there when they go to work or whatever, so the ones who have cars have them in their inventory.  The sims I was referring to are all in the active family, though I have seen inactive sims make the '8 hour trek' you spoke of in your other post.  I do not blame SC or anything Awesome and was quite sure it was either something I did wrong or something EAxis thought a feature.  I was just wondering, mostly, if it was an isolated issue, a problem specific to Appaloosa Plains, or something that might have 'broke' when the RHoG was having problems.  I do not mind watching my Vampires take off running, it still makes me happy, even if I have to babysit my pregos a little more.

I had a strange problem.  I don't know if it was caused by Awesome mod or a combination of Awesome mod and something else.  That something else most likely would be one of Twallan's mods, since I have them all installed.

My family consists of a second generation sim and her Invisible Friend who was turned into a visible friend using a potion.  They have two cats.  They also have twin daughters.  The daughters aged up from toddlers to children.  However, the next day, the kids were not going off to school.  I clicked on the button to send them to school and got a message there were no schools in town.  I was using a pretty straight Apaloosa Springs.  The only changes to the town were my McDonald's restaurant (a rabbithole), and a house I built for another family.

When I removed Awesomemod, the problem went away, and the kids went to school.  Since it solved the problem, I did not experiment further.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: J. M. Pescado on 2011 December 13, 03:41:31
If No Automatic Enrollment is enabled, then kids will not be automatically entered into a school and you must do so manually. However, this is not turned on by default. Did you turn this option on? If you turned the option on, then it's doing what it was supposed to. You must manually enroll your kids in a school by clicking on a school.

If you didn't turn this option on (check it in showconfig), then something has malfunctioned or your neighborhood has devolved into some kind of odd corner case, as leaving this option off results in EAxis default behavior (kids automatically get drafted into a school), except that the game will strongly favor choosing "like" schools rather than simply "closest rabbithole". This feature allows you to create gender-specific schools, as well as separate 6 and 12schools.

I first noticed this upon installation of the Pets EP, so assumed since it was stupid, it was caused by EA coding.  Have also had repeated instances where I have sent teens to school early (at 7 a.m.) via their own vehicle only to have them run (as in on foot) all the way back home and get on the bus.  Also am unable to send children of any age to school via teleporter. The only method of getting to school, seems to be via the bus and it seems to be 'set in concrete'.

There are many mods that allow you to cancel the schoolbus and any other carpool.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: floopyboo on 2011 December 14, 07:51:38
AFAIK, there are many mods that stop the carpool & buses from coming in the first place, none that alter the non-clickability of the queued 'get on bus' that can only be unqueued by resetting the sim in question.

Which begs the question - why the hell have that freaking want if you can't fulfil it unless you go into cheat mode to do so?

I have had sims skip school, can't remember for sure what I did, but it was by accident.  if I remember, I had them doing something like painting, writing, etc. that doesn't cancel when the school bus arrives, Either the go to school option dropped when the bus left or when I cancelled the action they were doing, can't remember which as it has been a while and I never paid that much attention.  Of course the sim then got grounded for skipping school.

Something to experiment with, might not be an ideal option, but worth a try,

There has been no change that would suddenly make the school bus uncancellable, since it is indistinguishable from any other work-carpool-vehicle. I am not sure why you are unable to cancel it.

The game closes several seconds after a save loads. I removed all my other mods except AM and it still crashes (using the most recent version of course). Removing AM fixes the problem. My game was saved at 3:30 AM so I'm not sure if it's another of those time-set crashes...


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: J. M. Pescado on 2011 December 14, 23:10:22
Define "closes several seconds after the game loads". As in, it just crashes while sitting there paused? I have noticed that for no particularly explicable or reproducible reason, sometimes the game will become unhappy if you leave it paused too long after loading, immediately crashing when you unpause, but this is not apparently specifically AwesomeMod-related, nor does it persist if you retry. It is also possible that the game was saved in a manner which will fatally die, and the process of removing AwesomeMod triggers a reset that prevents in, in which case typing "resetworld" into the game before unpausing will also prevent the mysterious crash. Saving can sometimes destabilize a game if you save at precisely the wrong moment.

One of my famblies just returned from China. Now whenever I try switching back to them I get a FSE. I can still play as them, but the bottom screen consoles remain stuck on the last sim I played before switching. After updating awesomemod just to be safe, I tried backing up from the previous save (in China) and coming home again... same problem occurs. Is there any hope, or am I going to have to put these characters out of their misery?

(http://oi41.tinypic.com/huqczp.jpg)

I have some custom content, but other than AM the only mod I have installed is nointro.package (which is obviously innocuous).

It looks like the affected sims have broken quests. Before sending them home, try doing "resetquests" for each of the selectable sims.

Post by: PrinJess on 2011 December 15, 00:52:19
I tried resetworlds, but it didn't solve the crash. Whether I speed the game up or let it flow naturally, the crash still happens within 3:00 and 5:00 AM. I guess the autosave saved my game while it was unpaused.

EDIT: Before I saved the game, my child Sim's Cosmo doll came to life and walked annoyingly around the house, eventually forming back into its doll form. At 4:02 AM the save crashes. I wonder if deleting the doll will stop the crashing...

Here's my save data if you need it for analyzing: http://www.mediafire.com/?t8csc5j8x7nwya4

To the 3 o'clock crashers: Are you using Awesomemod's story driver?

This may no longer be the case, but I remember that when I was using Awesomemod with the story driver disabled I would eventually run into a 3 o'clock crash. It had something to do with EAxis's story driver firing. When I enabled Awesomemod's story driver it fixed the problem.

EDIT: I could have sworn someone else posted about a 3 o'clock crash error, but it seems that post has vanished. 3 posts and I'm already losing my mind.

OK, I have a wierd one to report. I patched. I updated my Awesome Mod and the game is now asking me if I really want to play with a 3rd party mod installed. If I 'continue' the game crashes (ie doesn't progress past the next black screen and W7 gives me a 'searching for solution' message)

Definately no duplicate. I thought I'd got all the caches, but I'll try that again.

It's not the Awesome. It's something 3rd party logged in my caches. Removing all CC other than Awesome and clearing anything resembling a cache worked 2nd try - first time I got the crashing again. I'll figure out what it is exactly this weekend.

Well, I think I fixed my problem. I deleted the cache of CCMagic, changed the log file in options.ini to 0 to disable the store, and updated my mods to their latest versions. I was able to progress through a whole day without crashing.

As for those with the crash upon startup:

http://modthesims.info/showpost.php?p=3727289&postcount=80

At one point I too experienced the crash, but it somehow decided to stop crashing. Again, it may have something to do with the new patch's store ads bullshit.

Nope. The error you're getting appears to be occurring inside the bowels of EAxian quest handling, meaning, it SHOULD never break, but it was also written by EAxis.

I am running into what I will call the "3 pm crash to desktop."

My current game save starts at 12 pm in game time.  When I progress the game, it always crashes to the desktop at 3 pm in game time.
I tried to speed past 3 pm but it still crashes between 2:50 - 3:10 pm in game time on any speed.

I have the base game, Ambitions, World Adventures, Generations, Late Night, and Pets installed for expansion packs and High-End Loft, Fast Lane, Outdoor Living, and Town Life Stuff all installed for stuff packs.

My game is patched to 1.29 and I downloaded and installed a new awesomemod package yesterday evening after I patched my game to 1.29.

This issue started happening at 1.26 and is still happening with 1.29.

I ran the game with my Mods folder and awesomemod still in and disabled custom content and the game still crashed at 3 pm in game time.

I ran the game without my Mods folder in so there was no awesomemod and disabled custom content and my game ran for over and hour on freewill without a single problem and was able to get past 3 pm in game times and well beyond.

Everytime I put my Mods folder back in with awesomemod, it crashes to desktop at 3 pm in game time.

I use no other mods but awesomemod and some clothing and lipstick I have downloaded and some objects I have purchased from the sims 3 store so I don't think it is a mod conflict.

I redid the framework for my mods as well to see if that was causing an issue but that did not solve my crash to desktop issue.

I also deleted my cache files as well to see if that would help solve to problem but it did not.

The only solution I've come across is removing awesomemod and the game runs fine, but I cannot play my game without awesomemod in it so I think the crash to desktop might be caused by a bug in awesomemod.

Game crashing to desktop  :-\

I have the base game, Ambitions, World Adventures, Generations, Late Night, and Pets installed for expansion packs and High-End Loft, Fast Lane, Outdoor Living, and Town Life Stuff all installed for stuff packs.

I have used AwesomeMod for as long as I remember. And never had issues with my game until the updated version of AwesomeMod after Pets released. My game loads normally and I can play a random amount of minutes in a given load, but randomly crashes to desktop with the Windows error, asking to close the program and/or search internet for solutions. My game then will load fine to the last save spot in game. Sometimes it crashes to desktop while attempting to save.

My game is patched to 1.29 as of this afternoon and I downloaded and installed a new AwesomeMod package right after the game update. It is still doing the same thing.

This issue started happening at 1.26 and is still happening with 1.29.

I remove ALL mods (which is only AwesomeMod and the config.package file) and run the game and plays smoothly, absolutely no crashes, only problem it's my legacy family and I cannot save without AwesomeMod  :'( Only other items are from Sims3.com from exchange and purchased items from EA, which no new (downloads) changes for several months.

I redid the framework for my mods as well to see if that was causing an issue but that did not solve my crash to desktop issue.

I also deleted my cache files as well to see if that would help solve to problem but it did not.

Sounds like the same exact problem as the previous post.

Post by: J. M. Pescado on 2011 December 16, 03:18:04
If your game crashes WHILE SAVING, this cannot be an AwesomeMod issue because AwesomeMod does not affect the saving process, which is hardcoded.

I remove ALL mods (which is only AwesomeMod and the config.package file) and run the game and plays smoothly, absolutely no crashes, only problem it's my legacy family and I cannot save without AwesomeMod  :'(
Send me the save and I will examine it. I am presently examining someone else's reported crashy save as well.

Here is my save file:
http://www.mediafire.com/?71i46kcl1c64tbo

I hope this works.

It only crashed once when I hit the save button, so not sure if it was crashing while I was hitting it or what. It has not crashed while attempting to save.

To clarify not being able to save my current file, isn't it correct that running my save file that had AwesomeMod in the Mods folder, then taking the package files out and loading that said save file and playing WITHOUT AwesomeMod, then saving that file again with AwesomeMod not in the Mods, will wreck/damage that save file? That is what I meant by not being able to save that game, I would not be able to play that file again.

I USED to have this problem, but it just decided not to crash anymore. What I did was I removed AM, fast-forwarded several Sim hours past the hour it was crashing (3:00 to 5:00 AM for me), saved it, placed AM back in, and continued from that save on. It's been working flawlessly. Thank God for autosave backups. Yesterday I played 3 sim days and no crashes.

Then again, I have AM's timestamp of 12/14. Been hesitant to update. :/

I'm having an issue when I combine Supreme Commander, a Moodlet Manager, and a horse. I have a human Sim and a horse both skilling using SC, and the Moodlet Manager keeps ending up in the horse's inventory, even though it was in the Sim's at the start. The horse cannot actually use it, and the Sim cannot get it back when her moodlets turn red (contrary to what usually happens when several human Sims on SC automatically pass it around at need), unless I transfer it manually. But as soon as the horse has a bad moodlet and no action queued except SC, it gets the Moodlet Manager again.

I'm experiencing a series of crashes that I've been able to relate to AwesomeMod. In order to exclude as many options as possible, I was able to reproduce the crash by just installing the base game (updated to 1.26+) and AwesomeMod. Then starting a new game on an empty lot in Riverview. It still crashes within 15 minutes.

Always the same:
type: ACCESS_VIOLATION reading address 0x00000030
address: 0x00d0edef "C:\Games\Sims\The Sims 3\Game\Bin\TS3W.exe":0x0001:0x0090ddef

So it's either a Bohrbug or a Mandelbug.

I have experienced this behavior on 1.26 with the December 9 package, and on 1.29 with the December 16 package. Those were/are the most recent packages for those versions, right?
Last time I played was during Ambitions. Didn't have a problem then, so it must have happened with one of the patches (since it's now also happening in the base game). If I'm not mistaken, all patch content is now neatly stored in delta-packages, so one of them probably contains the bug. Since my game crashes quite reliably, I could test any new versions if you want. At any patch level.

By the way, thanks for all the hard work and time you put into the mod.

This particular issue is definitely a "Bohr" bug. I spent hours doing binary-sweep to isolate the section of code that triggered it, except there's absolutely no good reason why it should, since it's a widely used standard function call with no arguments, that should not under any circumstances CRASH, and when I bypassed that call, replacing it with an awkward kludge, it stopped crashing in that test case.

So in this update, I have globally replaced all the calls used with aforementioned awkward kludge.

Worked for almost 20 minutes though.

The strange thing is, when I started playing about 3 days ago, I was running a game in Bridgeport with everything installed. It ran for nearly a day without a crash. By then the Speed 4 had slowed to a crawl. I attributed it to a CPU which kept maxing out. So I bought a new one. Now my CPU doesn't go over 80%, my RAM doesn't go higher than 60%, my FPS stays above 60, but these crashes have started happening (and Speed 4 still slows down to a crawl after a while unfortunately).
Why didn't the game crash that first day? Nothing changed except my CPU.

Sometimes the Sims reminds me of Windows. When it started, it was small, fast and efficient. Then they kept adding stuff onto it, until now it is a huge blob of code that has to be compiled in its entirety every time something needs to be tested.

A few seconds?! It takes nearly 10 seconds to save!

Well, I do like a challenge for the sake of progress. Risking public humiliation, but when you say 'send', where exactly is it you want me to send it? And what files do you need? The 5 files in the "savename.sims3" directory only (neatly compressed of course)?

Really? You can save in only 10 seconds? And by "a few seconds", I mean "I can mash 3 and it will crash shortly after". I'm not going to play your game for you. Just zip the save directory and put it on something that isn't too annoying to get. Maybe you have your own website, or whatever it is you do.

Okay, I have a save that crashes within 3-10 seconds of loading, slightly different every time. Speed is at 4, you don't need to actually do anything, but you're welcome to move the mouse if you want. I installed the base game, patched it to 1.26 first, later to 1.29. The only content installed is Riverview and Awesomemod. Best I can do, hope it helps.

I am having a strange problem. I updated AM (to be very sure, I just did so about 5 minutes ago) and ever since, my game crashes to desktop when I go into buy or build mode. It happens almost immediately -- the grid appears on the floor and then Windows pops up the "The program has stopped working" dialogue.

I am fairly sure it is AM-- I removed my few other mods, and even removed my CC to be sure. I also started a Sunset Valley to make sure there just wasn't something wrong with my current save file.

(eta: I also updated my game to the most recent patch yesterday or the day before.)

Okay, so I ran it for a good minute or so until your kid went to school and then came back. Several times. Nothing happened. It didn't crash. Then I needed my computar for some heavyweight processing, and moved to my second system to continue examining. This computer is somewhat older, and it crashed there.

Well, I am running on a relatively older system, an nForce 570 with an Athlon II X4, HD4850 and a first generation X-Fi. Has kept up with me so far. So how can I explain this then (got it from the crash-dumps)?

Memory load: 53%
Total physical memory: 6142 Mb
Available physical memory: 2849 Mb
Total page file memory: 8188 Mb
Available page file memory: 4239 Mb
Total virtual memory: 4095 Mb
Free virtual memory: 2945 Mb

Every single crash-log, never goes over 60%. And I've had the game running without Awesomemod for hours on one screen while playing a TV series and web browsing on another screen. But as soon as I put Awesomemod back in...  :(

Also, I did run them through the Analyzer. Same thing every single time, 'Corrupt Save Crash' at the same address. So, I asked the author for help, posted the logs, and he also pointed at Awesome as the cause.

Anything else I can do, or will I have to accept life a little less Awesome?

I am not sure why this happens. Did this happen under 1.26? Is it something that specifically afflicts certain neighborhoods? I traced a previous such crash issue from someone else's save to a place that made absolutely no sense to crash, since it had never done that before. I have yet to encounter this particular problem in any of my own games, however. Where are you getting these saves which appear to be damaged?

Update: Rapturing your neighborhood fixes all crashes on all systems, it seems. Probably tons of gunk data accumulating somewhere that the game doesn't like. So, simple enough. Bless everyone you want to keep, rapture the rest. Problem solved.

Yup, 1.26 did the same. I started out with 1.26 a few days ago. And they're not really saves. I can start a game, never save it at all, and the Analyzer will call the crash-dump a Corrupt Save. When I asked the author, he concluded it was custom content. You can read it in the Analyzer's comments thread should you feel so inclined.

Same crash location every time:
1.26 - Crash Address: 0x00d0edef "C:\Games\Sims\The Sims 3\Game\Bin\TS3W.exe":0x0001:0x0090ddef
1.29 - Crash Address: 0x00d22aef "C:\Games\Sims\The Sims 3\Game\Bin\TS3W.exe":0x0001:0x00921aef

Rapturing is dropping a neutron bomb on the neighborhood right? Complete genocide of all living things, while leaving the structures intact? Will the game repopulate with random weird looking sims afterwards?


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: J. M. Pescado on 2011 December 20, 07:43:54
Rapturing eliminates all inhabitants except the ones you flag as Chosen, meaning, "Your Sims". Repopulation is not intrinsic to AwesomeMod itself, but if the game generates coworker NPCs and other inhabitants, the neighborhood will repopulate on its own, or you can "spawnmoreoverlords" to immediately fill out the neighborhood again. Basically, use the CRTL-Click command to tag any household you recognize well enough to keep, and then nuke the rest and see if the problem goes away. "Same Location Every Time" crash sounds like the kind of thing that could happen if some sim was deeply corrupted, which is why I never, ever, see this in my own games.

Well, if you're going to do that, see how long it takes you to bugger up a fresh Sunset with nothing special done to it like that. A fresh Sunset should be clean...until you start messing with it.

Well, it's been working for about two days now. Only 4 people in the entire neighborhood, so Charisma is a bit hard to raise. I assume the longer pauses at 4am and 9am are due to one of Awesome's processes. Going to add WA into the mix now.

So, will I have to do a ritualistic purification on a regular basis? There's no command to run through the neighborhood and fix only what EAxis fracked up? Is there a chance that my own sims get corrupted?

I posted earlier in this thread that I was having the issue of my game crashing at 3 pm in game time.

The tweaked 1.29 version fixed my problem with the crashing at 3 pm, however I am still having crash to desktops in my game and it is getting perpetually worse.

I updated my AwesomeMod today to see if their had been any new tweaks to it, but the issue is still happening.

I took my Mods folder out today and let the game run for an hour without AwesomeMod and it was perfectly fine, no crashes to desktop.

I put my Mods folder back in and it's crashing to the desktop all over the place.   It's not at a certain time like it used too, now it's crashing at random times.

Here is my save file if you are interested in taking a peek at it:

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=O1M5RKX3

I've had a lot of issue with this particular save, but it is my Legacy family, and I am almost done with it so I am really hoping to be able to see them through to the end.  With AwesomeMod of course.

Despair, do you have any other items in your mods folder? If so, have you tried taking them all out and putting them back in one at a time to see which one is causing the crashing? Also, have you checked to make sure that everything is compatible with your game version. I assume that since you said you have got the latest version of AM, that it is 1.29.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: DespairFactor on 2011 December 23, 14:23:52
The only other items I have in my Mods folder are some custom hairs, clothing, and make up that I've downloaded from MTS.

My game is patched up to 1.29.

I've tried playing with my Mods folder in and just removing the awesome.package and the config file and leaving in the hair and everything else and I let my game run for an hour and a half and freewill and it didn't crash.

I put awesome.package and the config file back in the mod folder and let it run on freewill and it only made it for about 15 minutes before it crashed to desktop.

I can't say for 100% that I know AwesomeMod is causing it, but from my testing it looks that way and other people were also reporting similar problems.

Since it was tweaked after the crashing problems were reported, I thought I would throw my save file out there just in case.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: Orionos on 2011 December 23, 22:52:19
All the new NPCs created by the game have a -100 hygiene and won't stick around. When I rummage through their trash, they immediately run out of the house and sprint away. When I invite them over, I have to call them several times before they show up, and then immediately get back into their car and drive off.
One of them is marked in blue on the map, all the others in orange. I assume Awesome is marking them on the map, but what is causing their inability to interact?

EDIT: For some reason, I'm also good friends with my car according to the relationship panel. Talk about taking vehicle enthusiast to a new level.

Awesome! Thanks a ton. Sorry for the extra work but I love AwesomeMod so much ... I literally refuse to play without it.

Is there an updated AwesomeMod for the crash issue? I installed a new file that I downloaded yesterday. Then played today and it crashed to the desktop again.

Post by: J. M. Pescado on 2011 December 24, 05:53:57
The "crashing issue" is kind of a mystery and appears to be at least partly intrinsic to the new patch, since practically nothing has actually been CHANGED AwesomeMod-wise between 1.26 AM and 1.29, and all of the functions that had to be manually patched have been thoroughly inspected already.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread

I haven't had a CTD for so long I can't remember when, and no freezes, this is with latest patch and AM version.  I wonder if it could be partly system related, I have a fairly beefy system with plenty of grunt for TS3, although short of what I suspect Pes has. 


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: J. M. Pescado on 2011 December 25, 02:28:04
Personally, I suspect this patch introduces at least one resource leak, due to the fact that the main thing added in this patch was "more Store features", and that this feature therefore can destabilize the game.

It seems to me that the new Awesomemod version doesn't like CCMagic. It's 'nonfatal core mismatch'-ing the whole 'mods' folder. (I keep all script, core, and non-objects there.)

I have had the in-game shop mode turned off from day one and I am having NO crashes with the latest build or any other recent build.

I seem to have figured out how to stop it crashing (at least, in my game).  Turn off the Memory Notifications.  I've been playing a game that used to ctd every five minutes for about two hours crash-free now.  I could be wrong, there might just be a crash lying in wait to ambush me when I least expect it, but so far so good.

Also FullfillWantsWithoutLocking doesn't allow unlocked wants to give you points; it gives you the moodlet and you see the floating numbers, but no points have actually been added.  Might just be me, but I thought I should mention it while I'm over here.

A sim is looping, repeatedly trying to cure a negative moodlet with the Moodlet Manager.  He has no negative moodlets, and is fully greened up.  He does have the Midlife Crisis moodlet - is he trying to get rid of the moodlet and is this a bug or AM working as designed?

Also, I've noticed that sims with the Imaginary Friend trait rarely have any positive matches.  When I type matchall it seems the best I can get for most of them is -1.  This has occurred in different neighbourhoods with multiple sims.  As a result of this, most of them never get any romance action from ASM.  Is there a big negative hit for the Imaginary Friend trait when trying to find a match for them?

I've noticed a bug that popped up recently with the steel bladder perk changes in the Awesome mod, I only noticed it after installing Pets a while ago.

Sims with a steel bladder only partially fulfill their bladder need when you tell them to go. It'll fill the bar up around 1/4 of the way, then they'll stop. You have to tell a Sim with a steel bladder to use the toilet 3 or 4 times for them to max out the bladder need. Sims without a steel bladder however always max out their bladder motive the first time they use a toilet.

Also this is probably related, but I noticed a sim without a steel bladder fills their bladder need 2300+ an hour when using the toilet (according to the numbers you see when hovering over the motive bar), but a sim with a Steel Bladder only fills their bladder need 560+ a hour. Perhaps this is part of the problem, if a sim only uses the toilet long enough to fulfill the bladder need for a sim without a steel bladder, even though sims with steel bladders take longer to fill their bladder motive bar.

Okay, so I installed AwesomeMod, and I just experienced a total game freeze, followed by a CTD. At first, the plumbbobs and the water were moving, but right before it crashed it just did nothing. I couldn't click anything, ctrl-shift-c wasn't working, nothing. It was at an off-location wedding, and I'm thinking the quantity of Sims had something to do with it. I've had problems when a lot of Sims gather in one location.  I also noticed that my game's really lagging. As in, speed 3 barely crawls. I know that this is probably a byproduct of AwesomeMod, because AwesomeStory makes Sims actually do things, but it is irritating. Anything I can do to temporarily fix it?
Edit: I should probably mention I have no mods or CC other than AwesomeMod, nointro, and nobuildsparkles.
Edit: Just crashed again after about 2 seconds of gameplay. The first crash occurred after about 10 minutes.
Edit: I did fixall upon opening my save game, and everything seemed fine. I played for about 20 minutes, with no overly noticeable lag. I doubt I fixed the issue, but if I have major problems I'll report it here. Thanks (=

I seriously doubt that I'm the problem when everything worked fine before and nothing else has changed. I've generally avoided patching because it's caused more problems than it's solved in the past, so judge away for that if you want. Just tell me if that alone would account for the problem when nothing has changed except AwesomeMod and my game probably hasn't been fully patched since 2010.

Awesomemod always requires the latest patch, as even the most perfunctory of searches would have told you.  Older versions of Awesomemod aren't supported or available.  So, yes, my AIDE was correct.  The problem is you, and you should feel bad.

It's a bug. Will fix it in the next version, apparently that moodlet detects as negative but isn't actually removable.

Also, I've noticed that sims with the Imaginary Friend trait rarely have any positive matches.  When I type matchall it seems the best I can get for most of them is -1.  This has occurred in different neighbourhoods with multiple sims.  As a result of this, most of them never get any romance action from ASM.  Is there a big negative hit for the Imaginary Friend trait when trying to find a match for them?
Purely coincidence. There is no specific code attached to that trait in romances.

I saw a tag in Map View that I think was triggered by Overwatch, telling me that the Pudding family's car was parked at the police station in SV and was therefore a derelict vehicle. I tried the towderelicts command but the tag was still there, which obviously means the car was still there. The problem persisted for several days, until the tag was gone. I tried towderelicts again during those several days, until the tag randomly disappeared. I'm wondering if the car wasn't actually there, but the tag for some reason didn't go away when I entered the command. I'm assuming Overwatch finally realized the car was there and removed it, but it took several days, when problem fixing is supposed to happen nightly. I'm going to report the problem over at the NRaas wiki, and I'll edit when I get an answer (assuming I don't get one here first).

That isn't actually a derelict vehicle, since it's parked at an actual spot. It disappeared on its own because they finally decided to drive it off. The tag is there for "Dude, Where's My Car?" purposes.

Is ErrorTrap compatible with Awesome these days? Because it is, after all, a core mod. I do remember trying to use the two together, but that was at least 2 patches ago, if not 3, so it's probably no longer relevant right now.

Sims with a steel bladder only partially fulfill their bladder need when you tell them to go. It'll fill the bar up around 1/4 of the way, then they'll stop. You have to tell a Sim with a steel bladder to use the toilet 3 or 4 times for them to max out the bladder need. Sims without a steel bladder however always max out their bladder motive the first time they use a toilet.

Also this is probably related, but I noticed a sim without a steel bladder fills their bladder need 2300+ an hour when using the toilet (according to the numbers you see when hovering over the motive bar), but a sim with a Steel Bladder only fills their bladder need 560+ a hour. Perhaps this is part of the problem, if a sim only uses the toilet long enough to fulfill the bladder need for a sim without a steel bladder, even though sims with steel bladders take longer to fill their bladder motive bar.
I had that very same problem until I removed NRaas Shooless.

edit: Sorry, I'd have put some pants on if I had known I was going to be at the top of the page.
I tried removing everything except the awesome mod and still have the same problem, so unfortunately that wasn't it. For the moment I'm using a custom version of the awesome mod that doesn't change the Steel Bladder perk to get around this issue.

I have a couple that was recently married and when I try to get the mail from the mailbox (the presents that their friends have sent them) the game crashes.  When I took out all of my cc and Awesomeware it doesn't crash. If I leave in just Awesomeware (Awesome Mod, Rule of Six, Config, straygnome) it crashes. Has anyone had this problem?

Yes, actually, though I assumed it was just a glitch and gave them a new mailbox from buydebug...

It is fixed now, but they can't write thank you notes. When I click on the mailbox to write thank you notes it disappears from their cue. If I take out Awesomemod, they write the thank you notes.

I have never seen this interaction, so...describe what happens. What does a sim do when you tell them to write this note, normally? Do they just pull a notepad out of their ass, write something, and stuff it into the box?


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: Madame Mim on 2012 January 10, 10:02:28
They go sit at a desk with the notepad out of their arse and write notes. I can't remember if they then even bother to go back and post them, but I do know that it is notoriously route buggy and even having a house on a foundation can quash the process. I tend to move a desk and chair out on the front lawn if I want them to write thankyou notes.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: PrinJess on 2012 January 10, 13:58:14
I think writing the thank-you notes worked before the patch or even before Pets...But yeah, I' m having the same problem.

I think writing the thank-you notes worked before the patch or even before Pets...But yeah, I' m having the same problem.

It definitely became problematic after that latest EA patch.  Prior to that, if I stationed the sim needing to write the thank-you notes very near an empty desk, then clicked on the mailbox and instructed them to write thank-you notes, they sat down and wrote them (pulled paper from tushes and then they just fling 'em in the air and they 'poof' and go to recipient - dontcha just wish it was really that easy?).  Now, not sure as the only couple I had married, experienced the CTD upon checking the mailbox and I assumed it was an EA problem, not Awesomemod, or I would have mentioned it over a week ago. sorry.

Edited to add:  Just in case this isn't EA caused either - continuing to occasionally have CTDs when I click on an opportunity - doesn't matter if I click accept or cancel. Latest one was a skilling one for handiness...and if I recollect correctly, most of the ones that 'cause' the CTD are skill related rather than say celebrity related.

I click on the mailbox "write thank you notes" and the sim will go to the kitchen table pull a pad out of his ass and write the notes, and I will get a notification that everyone received their thank you notes and know that you enjoyed their gifts. They don't even stuff it in the box. The notification just pops up in the right corner like all notifications as soon as the sim is done writing.

I'm having the same issue mentioned earlier about crashes at the beginning of horse competitions.  Restarting without AwesomeMod gets rid of the problem, letting me complete races.  

In my game I've tested it with Shawnee Fox riding "Bramble", and Dakota Fox riding "Willow".

I think I know why that happens, yes: AwesomeMod intentionally inhibits attempts to find surfaces that are millions of miles away from the action, to prevent a sim from deciding that a seat on the other side of the world is perfect, while the slightly lower-quality seat RIGHT NEXT TO IT just ISN'T GOOD ENOUGH. I will add an exception rule for this since the sim doesn't apparently hike the 80 miles to the box after selecting a chair on the opposite side of the world to do it in.

Easy workaround until it's fixed is to have the sim sit at a desk or table before you click on the mailbox. I can get them to write thank you notes this way without error.

I am testing this right now, and all of my inventory made it to Egypt intact. My guess is that this is not intrinsic to AwesomeMod at all, but rather, an effect of the lack of exception handling in the native EAxian code which causes the entire process to derail if one or more inventory objects is corrupt. I will keep an eye out for if this happens when I return.

I can confirm this is not AM, but an Eaxian bug. I lost all of the fish in my inventory upon return as well. ErrorTrap supposedly fixes the issue. Any update/plan to fix this in AM, or should I just download that?

I had found that when I had awesome mod installed alone, and patched up to 1.29 with pets, I can no longer order drinks from the bar at my own lot and others cannot order from me.

I wasn't aware this was even possible, and nothing has been changed there, so it may have been EAxian.

AM makes the two professional bars break down and cry since 1.29. I've never had an outdated version of AM.

With only AM installed: professional bar works fine until someone is actually tending it with the "manage bar" interaction. Then, no one can order a drink. This also happens when hiring a mixologist to show up to your party. Dude just stands there and breaks glasses, then leaves with your money.

With zero CC: Bar interactions resume function again.

I considered tweaking my AM config in the hopes that one of the options might be at fault, but a) I am not that obsessed and b) nothing in the AM config seems even remotely like it would break the bar, so I'm at a loss.

Does AwesomeMod work with the most recent Sims 3 release with Master Suite included?  I'm not able to get the game to load without warnings being given to me and I know the framework is installed properly (verified with the NoIntro package and the NoSparkles package)  This is also a relatively clean install with just a bunch of sims3 store stuff installed (freebies) but no prior mods (save for the ones included in the framework). 

I tried with both the Framework version on the MTS site as well as the version you provide here (installed in the Sims 3 install folder).

During Launch

They actually have to be.  Steam sends the entire game as a batch install so all purchased expansions and stuff packs are sent over all at once and updated at once.

EDIT: I'm going to take the drastic route.  There should not be any significant difference between the Steam and Origin versions but I do that the latter version available to download/install so I'm going to backup/uninstall the Steam one then download and install the Origin one and see if that makes a difference.

Ok.  That's fine.  ^_^

I was just wondering if there was a technical reason (a specific core file was different on Steam vs Retail/Origin or something).  If Steam isn't supported though it should be mentioned in the documentation.  It wasn't mentioned anywhere and the framework itself works fine with the Steam version.

Yea.  I caught that thread just now finally. >.>  Apparently it comes down to some potential patch version differences and a different file structure that is on the Steam version where they merge it all together rather than have it spread out..  The Origin/Retail versions put each expansion/stuff pack in their own little install folder.

I've been running in to this as well.

Running a newly downloaded Awesomemod(downloaded today) and have tested with an unplayed Sim(a different household).

Obviously, having the motiveperkrebalance option turned off doesn't let you test the bladder discharge rate of steel bladder Sims since their bladder motive never decays, but with it on I can confirm ShadowLiberal's experience regarding the Sim's changed discharge rate versus when they don't. As would be expected, Sims without the perk appear unaffected either way.

Why do they keep pinching it off?! I only do it when I don't have any other choice!

Post by: Alicelove on 2012 January 30, 00:04:20
I had a strange problem.  I don't know if it was caused by Awesome mod or a combination of Awesome mod and something else.  That something else most likely would be one of Twallan's mods, since I have them all installed.

My family consists of a second generation sim and her Invisible Friend who was turned into a visible friend using a potion.  They have two cats.  They also have twin daughters.  The daughters aged up from toddlers to children.  However, the next day, the kids were not going off to school.  I clicked on the button to send them to school and got a message there were no schools in town.  I was using a pretty straight Apaloosa Springs.  The only changes to the town were my McDonald's restaurant (a rabbithole), and a house I built for another family.

When I removed Awesomemod, the problem went away, and the kids went to school.  Since it solved the problem, I did not experiment further.

I'm having something similar with normal children in a custom hood, and I'm starting to wonder if it's that rabbit hole itself that AM (or whatever is causing it) has a problem with. It doesn't appear to be registering as a real school. I'm running a two-school system, and I replaced my fully functional 12-only rabbit hole with the Crestview building (Apaloosa's school/stadium). I attempted an enrollall 12 and received the message, "Cannot resolve with 0 schools on lot." (And yes, I attempted this on the school's lot. I'm stupid, but I'm not that stupid.) I can't manually enroll my teens into that school either, their only options are "pull prank" and "painting class" so I can't even enroll them individually.

Removing the offending building and replacing it with a stand-alone school rabbit hole fixes the issue. Except for the part where I want to use the combo rabbit hole. I have No Automatic School enabled by default, but turning it off doesn't seem to make a difference. I also use several Twallan mods, like the above. Twallen's school mod only gives me the option to enroll in the non-offending school.

This issue is reproduce-able in other hoods. Thoughts? Anybody else getting this result?

Serious risk of being labelled a moron, but hoping not so.

Basic problem: Awesome Mod seems to make game crash to desktop

Location of Awesome Mod: in My Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 3 > Mods > Packages

Yes, I've read other posts on here - most of the ones with this particular issue seem to be prior the patch I've got. Playing game edition 1.29. Only have base game. Yes, I have other CC - have played with other CC but not awesome mod = no crash. Have played with no CC = no crash. Add awesome mod back = crash.

I get the idea that since recent patches, the whole framework stuff in the Games > Bin folder is no longer necessary. Is that where I've gone wrong? Lately have just been playing with Awesome mod, but appreciate the awesomeness of it and would prefer not to.

Ta.

Is the only way to check for conflicting mods to remove each CC one at a time and try playing or is there some crafty shortcut? Have stumbled across Hack Conflict Detection Utility for Sims 2 but not for Sims 3. Am I missing something?

Specifically, with awesomemod installed, game crashes to desktop  ("sims 3 has stopped working, windows is searching for a solution") after 20-30 minutes game play, sometimes less.

If I click "Quit" then it quits after the loading, and if I click "Ignore", it works fine until I try to enter the CAS. When I do, the game crashes.

I recently re-installed AM and I'm having a problem with the sound. Every now and then, the game's sound will start re-looping one sound over and over for several game hours. After a while, the looping will stop and the game will "vomit*" out hours worth of sounds all at once in a matter of seconds. I will hear tons of clicks, phones ringing, cars driving, laughter, snoring all glopped together and then the sound will go back to normal for a few game hours, only to get stuck on some other sound loop. Usually, the sound is some background noise that would normally go unnoticed, like general outdoor sounds. Sometimes it will get stuck on the washing machine or a car engine. Once it got stuck on a cell phone ringing.   

I removed all of my packages except AM, and the sound glitches continued. When I took out AM, it went away.

*Sorry for anthropomorphizing my game, but vomit seems very appropriate when I hear it.

If you're getting that particular message, it means your SimIFace file does not match the version AwesomeMod expects. This means one of 3 things:
1. You are using someone else's. Very few people modify that file. But you have no other packages.
2. You have the wrong version of either AwesomeMod or the game. Patch your game, update AwesomeMod.
3. Your files are corrupt.

You need to make sure you are patched to 1.29. If you install Master Suite Stuff without patching your patch level is something like 1.28. I can't remember the exact number, but it's not 1.29. So, check your patch level. Also, my sims skill just fine with AM installed.

It's not even just that: the game has what I think of as 'hidden' patch levels - i.e. there are patches that need to be applied to individual EP's. If you install everything in one go you may miss one of these patches and I advise checking your game with the patching tool available from MTS.

Did you enable the "ScaleSkillDifficultyToAging" in the config, or maybe increased the "RegularSkillingDifficulty" multiplier?  Either of these would increase the time it takes to skill.  You never said if the skill bar showed above their head but didn't move, or if it didn't appear at all.

Your problem has nothing to do with AM. If you play the game long enough after having removed AM, you'll find that the freezing and sound issues will begin again. I started having the sound and freezing issues after the 1.29 patch was installed into my game. After reinstalling the game and avoiding 1.29, I have those issues no longer. Unfortunately, that means I can also no longer have AM in my game, but at least I can play without freezing and crashing again.

Did you enable the "ScaleSkillDifficultyToAging" in the config, or maybe increased the "RegularSkillingDifficulty" multiplier?  Either of these would increase the time it takes to skill.  You never said if the skill bar showed above their head but didn't move, or if it didn't appear at all.



It shows the bars, they just don't gain not even slowly. Ill do another config and see it is the problem. If it is enabled by default then that is probably the problem.

I recently re-installed AM and I'm having a problem with the sound. Every now and then, the game's sound will start re-looping one sound over and over for several game hours. After a while, the looping will stop and the game will "vomit*" out hours worth of sounds all at once in a matter of seconds. I will hear tons of clicks, phones ringing, cars driving, laughter, snoring all glopped together and then the sound will go back to normal for a few game hours, only to get stuck on some other sound loop. Usually, the sound is some background noise that would normally go unnoticed, like general outdoor sounds. Sometimes it will get stuck on the washing machine or a car engine. Once it got stuck on a cell phone ringing.  

I removed all of my packages except AM, and the sound glitches continued. When I took out AM, it went away.

Duh. You're suffering from an old know bug caused by bicycles. AM makes it a bit more frequent because of the needed processing and it's easy to erroneously blame AM for that sound glitch.

Okay, stop advising people not to patch.  This is stupid, pointless, and counter-productive advice.  Unless you plan to never install another EP, SP, or store object in your game, you WILL end up patching.  I'm sorry you apparently can't get your game to work with the patch, but troubleshooting fail =/= faulty patch.

This isn't even entirely correct. You can completely remove this sound bug from your game with Overwatch because it turns off the eight bajillion TVs and Stereos that sims keep on all the time. Frequently using AM's fixall helps as well, but you have to remember to do it; Overwatch is automated. I recommend TFM's STFU mods because the game has too many annoying sounds, but you can clean up sound bugs without them.

It's not even just that: the game has what I think of as 'hidden' patch levels - i.e. there are patches that need to be applied to individual EP's. If you install everything in one go you may miss one of these patches and I advise checking your game with the patching tool available from MTS.

I have to thank you Madame Mim, I came here to make a post about an issue I was having with AwesomeMod core error and no world edit tools, but I saw your post and decided to do that first, and it fixed my problems!

IIRC, you don't need to patch intermediate EPs anymore.

If you're doing a fresh install, I think you still have to patch them up to the point they stopped making the individual EP patches.

Yes this is true. I just reformatted my PC and had to run a reinstall. I ran the latest patch thinking that would be it, no I was wrong, awesomemod almost blew up my game haha (no world edit tools, ctd AND core mismatch), so I read what Madame Mim said and got the patcher from MTS, and it downloaded and installed all the patches (it was so fast o_o), and my game is now working better than it did before.

Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: sleep on 2012 February 25, 01:13:46
Hoping to get this right from the start....let me know if more info is needed.

Awesomemod appears to be causing a game crash.

I only recently got Pets, and updated all mods and objects carefully. The crashing definitely dates from that change; the game ran fine pre-Pets.

I'm using the most recent published version of AM (dated 30th Jan), and am patched to 1.29 with the intermediate patches as well.  I have all EPs up to Pets, no stuff packs. Currently installed are Riverview and two CC-free custom worlds (Neverglade and Niua Samoa), both of which have worked fine until now. The only CC is store stuff attached to Riverview, and of course Awesomemod.

The crash is occurring at random intervals in live mode, on any speed. The screen goes black for a moment, then comes back (but frozen) for another few moments, then crashes to desktop. The errors are usually 0x00000030, which the Crashlog Analyser interprets as a corrupted save. I have had some reports of faulty CC as well, with various error codes. I can't spot any correlation between crashes and any game activity - I installed Twallan's Errortrap but it didn't catch anything at the right times.

Sometimes the game runs for one or two sim-days before a crash, sometimes less. Using a previously crashed save will crash much faster, but restored backups still do it after a couple of days. My current game is in Neverglade, a large world, and involves an eight-sim household and their stuff, but I believe my system should be coping with that.

Sleep:

I just encountered that exact crash/error over the last few days (I am running Windows 7 64-bit so I don't think Windows is the issue), but only in one hood (four different saves). My other three do not have that issue - the only difference is that I used the "DestroyAllHumans" command in the one where the crashes occur. It was a brand new hood, so I made the exact hood and just manually deleted all households. I placed the same sims in the same lots and haven't crashed for two (real - not sim) days. Did you use that command?


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: PA on 2012 February 26, 16:46:21
Sleep, XP Home doesn't understand the /3G switch.  Basically, you're stuck giving Sims 3 2GB of RAM and it's not liking it.  Neverglade isn't helping.  Update your OS and your RAM or use smaller worlds with fewer memory-eating actions.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: sleep on 2012 February 26, 22:44:36
Nec - no, I have never used that command.

PA - I don't understand the /3G switch either, though maybe I'll Google it now and find out. Is it the same thing as Large Address Aware? I already upgraded the RAM as far as I can, which did stop an earlier memory problem.

I'll move out some of the surplus family members - it was in the plan anyway, but I was trying to fix those crashes before playing seriously again. A smaller household may do the trick, and otherwise, perhaps Neverglade is not for me! Thanks for your help.

Post by: Nec on 2012 February 27, 05:37:39

Well, back to the drawing board for me. Could be just a random bug that corrupts the hood. The hood with the crashes for me is Twinbrook. I never took AM out of my game so it might not be AM at all.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: sleep on 2012 February 27, 06:18:47
Just a query - removing Awesome definitely stops the crashes, putting it in definitely causes them. Using my normal amount of other CC (not masses, but some) does not result in crashes unless Awesome is also present If the problem is simply a limitation of XP Home, what is Awesome doing that the rest of the CC is not?



Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: Nec on 2012 February 28, 06:45:02
Not a clue, but 1.29/Pets is so damn buggy that I wouldn't be surprised if it was a by-product of that. All the WA stuff is FUBAR from one or both of them. No fish transfers to/from vacation/hood, adventure board all messed up, etc. I can get the board to work with a LOT of work, but I gave up on the fish and just put spawners in the base hood. With the exception of a few letters/numbers, we had the same issue. I haven't had a single crash since I changed hoods, though. Only CC I have is AM, no autonomous sprinkler (hate that!), HP's texture replacers, and Ambular's Coffee Flavored Coffee.

Just to share, here's my error:

I have tried tracing the mystery crashes using extensive 50/50 patch diffing, but it ended up in a weird, nonsensical place, and when I tried messing with it, the problem just disappeared on its own, even when nothing was actually changed. I can only conclude that it's some kind of bizarre deep engine glitch, as none of the analyzers I've run it through find anything wrong. You can try "resetworld" and see if that makes it stop, perhaps something is just stuck in some kind of weird state.

Hello.

I have that same kind of issue. Awesomemod opens a window tells me there's a non-core issue with another mod which is not answering the way it should (translated from French by memory, sorry if it's not correct). But, thing is, I tested the game with ONLY the Awesomemod and NO OTHER package - as I had just reinstalled my games -  and it says just the same...

If I click "Quit" then it quits after the loading, and if I click "Ignore", it works fine until I try to enter the CAS. When I do, the game crashes.

(I have all extensions up to Master Suite Stuff)
If you're getting that particular message, it means your SimIFace file does not match the version AwesomeMod expects. This means one of 3 things:
1. You are using someone else's. Very few people modify that file. But you have no other packages.
2. You have the wrong version of either AwesomeMod or the game. Patch your game, update AwesomeMod.
3. Your files are corrupt.

I'm having the same issue. I'm running patch 1.31 and checked my files with Dashboard and no conflicts. I removed all cc (except AM) and Saved folders as well. Still get the non critical box and no content at all in game and crashing when going to buy/build/CAS. I don't know what a SimIFace file is, but I haven't added any new content other than Pets to my game since before it was released and that version (pre RIG patch) of AM worked fine. Could this be because I didn't install Origin?

I've played several sessions of a couple of hours each in the last few days, adding Awesome back into my suite of CC (including other mods, from Twallan mainly). Interestingly, I have not had a crash. I did not use resetworld, and did not alter anything else as far as I know. Weird. But so far, so good.

Very doubtful.  More likely because you didn't replace AM with the correct version for the 1.31 patch.

There is a reason the test version is not readily available. Multiple, even. One, it means people won't just plop it into their games and complain about "WRY DIS NO WURK?" Two, if you're using the test version then you're expected to report issues that it seems to be causing. If you're not smart enough to find where it is, then you likely wouldn't be a font of good information.

New game in Appaloosa Plains.  All expansions except Showtime.  All current patches as verified with the patch utility thingy from MTS.  Had the 3/5/2012 9:08am version of AM.  When I move a new family into a house and select to immediatle play it, I get an eternal loading prompt.  Verified for at least 10 minutes on two different tries.  Problem does not occur with no mods at all.  Does occur with just AM.  If it matters, I have Win7-64 with 4gb ram

Edit:  To clarify, the abovementioned version of AM is the test version.

Also, I saved a game that I was able start and play successfully for over an hour.  I then re-enabled AM, and no other mods, and was able to play successfully for over an hour.  So, I'm not able to start a new family with AM, but apparently am able to load and play a previously started family with AM.

I played for hours last night with the latest test version of AM -- no more crashes.  However, since the patch and new AM, something really bizarre is happening:  My Sim comes home from somewhere, and her bicycle just disappears into thin air.  It's not even in her inventory.  So I buy her a new bike, she rides it somewhere; and when she comes home, that bike disappears, too.  This happened three times, before I gave up.  Is she eating them, or possibly putting them so far up her ass, she can't get them out?

I've had this problem too. My sims would come home, and the bike was just nowhere to be found. But then I noticed that the bikes are actually going back on their designated bike rack, but turning invisible for some reason. This renders the bike rack entirely useless, as the bike is unselectable, and the rack is still "In use". The only way to get them back is to replace the whole damn thing.

Same here as OP, Win7 64x, 4gb. Click to play any newly moved-in family and game stalls, place any family and the game stalls. Works "fine" (I get super-long pauses without AM) without AM.

Tried loading family, save/quitting, putting AM back in, and then loading up the family again: Loads the family so I can see them doing whatever their last action was, but then they respond to NOTHING. Have no portrait and their stats don't change. Time progresses at a consistent rate (no pauses/stuttering as it is without AM).


Updated to test version of AM.. family is now Chinese and totally uncontrollable. I.. uuhh.. am going to go run some more tests.




OKAY: I can say, with the test version of AM in and a brand new Appolloouzaoslafnarflefnarflefnarfle town:
1. Playing a pre-made family already in a home works fine, they loaded in under 30 seconds.
2. Playing a CAS family inserted into an empty lot works fine.
3. Playing a CAS family inserted into a new house (using Move In; furnished "The Madison") does not work. The loading box ran, went away, I got a "house infested with bugs" challenge, i accepted then screen =http://i39.tinypic.com/xek4nb.png.. now works after a second try.. not sure
4. Placing CAS made family into new house USING EDIT TOWN and then choosing them to play works.
5. Moving in a family that already has a house either doesn't work or takes so long that it effectively doesn't work. Was able to place, rotate, and the click accept.. then "Loading..." for upwards of 10 minutes. WORKS FINE

The no-mosaic works for humans when they get in the shower, but not when they use the toilet. It also doesn't work for the horses. (I don't have any other animals right now to see if it works for them or not). Not that I *want* to see the horses pee, but I hate the mosaic more.

The no-mosaic works for humans when they get in the shower, but not when they use the toilet. It also doesn't work for the horses. (I don't have any other animals right now to see if it works for them or not). Not that I *want* to see the horses pee, but I hate the mosaic more.

Working just as it should be.

I was having a ctd within minutes of play with the patch and the test am.  As I suspected it was tight pants--ancient rule of six was lurking.  Tossed that and all was well.

The test Awesomemod is breaking stage setup. When you buy props with AM installed, the house isn't billed. This is probably because of the setting that makes it so that clicking buy/build opens buy/build for the community lot.

When the game calls for buy mode to open to set up a stage, it's drawing from the family funds. When the game calls for buy mode to open for a community lot, it's acting as if you're editing it and thus you are not charged. With Awesomemod installed, I assume it's thinking you're trying to edit it, and thus the props do not cost you any money.

I can confirm that disabling "AlwaysBuildBuyHere" does NOT fix this, however. All I know is removing awesomemod = buying props cost money, adding awesomemod = buying props is completely free.

For what it's worth.

The latest test Awesome threw this FSE as I was quitting the game.  During the game, the clock had stopped at Sunday 9:04 PM but time still passed.

<FSE>
  <Error>Sims3.SimIFace.ResetException: Exception of type Sims3.SimIFace.ResetException was thrown.</Error>
</FSE>

Probably unrelated, but at times a Sim would sit in a car or taxi for a long while doing nothing when they had 'go home' in their queue.

I had the same error when I saved and quit last night. It seemed like the save was successful (the blurred out image was still on screen, then went to black as normal when the game is finally quitting, and that's when the error popped up). I don't know if the save actually worked then, or not, but I'll go in tonight and find out.

When playing today with the newest test version of AM and patch 1.32, I got a popup saying there was a simfest going on at the park. When I sent my sim there and had her enter the contest it popped up saying she was next, then a lady went on stage to announce the show, and everyone gathered around. She said my sim was coming up next and to let the show begin, when my sim approached the stage via the que, everyone "jumped" out of place and my sim could no longer interact with the stage, and there wasn't an option on the proprietor sim to enter the contest anymore. Not sure if this is AM related or not, but thought I would mention it in case.

When one of my sims gains celebrity-status, I get the message that some Townie is no longer their friend. This happens over and over, different towns and different families. I don't mind it too much, because i just cheat my way to friend status again.

EDIT: After some more testing it turned out that some store content is responsible for the issue. Awesomemod is still awesome.

I have never had an issue with AM before, but ever since i installed update 1.32 it hasn't been working. When I open the sims while it's installed, it pops up an error that says one of my modifications is not up to date with the current edition of sims. Also, I have the newest version of AM so I know thats not the issue. I have Sims 3, Pets, and Generations only. I have checked to make sure it wasn't one of my other mods but they all work just fine. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

There isn't an update of AM for 1.32 yet, just the test version, so the version you're downloading from the "Downloads and Announcements" thread is actually still version 1.29 and therefore not up to date with your patched version 1.32 game.

Not sure if this is AM related or not, but thought I would mention it in case.

A little update on this issue. My sim advanced a couple levels in Acrobat, I took her to a new Simfest, in a different location and the same thing occurred. She would ask to enter the Simfest, then they announce she is next as soon as she gets to the stage, her and everyone else reset and pop out of place. Then the Simfest no longer progresses from there, according to the proprietor's social interactions, it is still going on, but noone does anything after the reset. I had saved right before that happened, so I reloaded. When I went back in, and had my sim ask to be in Simfest it said great, you're up next, but my sim no longer got the instant que to go on stage like before.


Edit to add a new issue I just encountered. The game was acting strangely, so I entered 'fixall'. It popped up on both my sims saying their minipartner was missing. Then it said they both had an erroneous relationship with each other. Then when it was all done, I got memory pop ups saying they were romantically involved with each other and friends with each other. They were married before. Now it shows them as related still, only he is her son-in-law now, and they both have the red hearts.

The Bug Report Thread is for the reporting of bugs.  For the record, an Awesomemod bug is an error or unwanted game behavior -- usually but not always reproducible -- that occurs in a game where Awesomemod is installed correctly.

NOT BUGS:
Mismatched AM and patch levels
Conflicts with other hacks or cc
Improperly installed AM

Anyone else having anomalies with the testing version and the firefighter career?

It was working fine before, without any mods except nointro and no building sparkles, but when I added AM a few hours ago (yes, the testing version that is so darn hard to find if you search traditionally), oddness popped up, but only in the firehouse.

Oddness being:
Wrong cursors (walk on sink, grayed out on treadmill) but clicking produced the correct options.
Ambient sounds from 'building disaster' (the grocery store muzak in particular) would persist inappropriately.
Hang on promising new want. (3 minute hang, complete image freeze, alt-tab to other window worked but nothing in Sims did.)

All eps, up to and including Showtime, installed. Only mods mentioned in use.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: alaira on 2012 March 12, 18:07:56
With the latest test version, I had the alarm sound get stuck on.  Whenever I'm at the firefighter lot, the alarm sound is playing, but the alarm is not active(no animation) and there's no emergency.  I haven't noticed any of the other things you mentioned.  The only other mod I have apart from the ones you listed is an only important memories mod.
EDIT: Actually now that I think about it, I believe I may have also experienced the incorrect cursors thing.  But I wouldn't swear to it.

Having used cracks I would always wonder why I was getting the errors. Resolving it required updating the cracks.

I never used a crack. Just AM & Daemon Tools. This isn't the first core mismatch I get on a test version of AM either. Was just wondering if it was working as intended, as I can find nothing else wrong.

Each EP does patching of it's own on install, of course. I couldn't have an old base version because the EP wouldn't allow it. Either way, both launcher and MTS patcher are reporting everything up to date.

I got a script error last night while playing that I thought was related to MC from nraas. He looked at the script file and said it was an AM error. So I am bringing it over here. I had my sim child adopt a stray cat. After he adopted her, I reset her age back to the beginning of the stage. When I did that I got the script error pop up, and the cat got the que to "Go Home". She was already on the home lot, so I reset her and she stayed. All of her traits were missing. I'm not sure if it was like that when I adopted her, or happened after a reset. In the script error it says: Awesome.Traits.CAS:SortTraitList. I am fully patched to 1.32, and have the newest version of AM.

I have the test version which is compatible with my current patch level. So maybe you should hit yourself instead. I'm not reporting some dumb mismatch core like other stupid people are doing. I actually know what I'm doing and was reporting a legitimate error within the test version of AM.

Then perhaps you should have said TEST version in your original post, instead of "newest."  After wading through all the tard posts that are obvious patch/mod mismatches, I don't know why you'd think we'd assume someone knows what they are doing without it being demonstrated.

Actually it said test version then I changed it because I went to check for an update, and it is no longer in testing. It has been moved to the base mod section. Even though the thread has not been updated to reflect so, the test version is no longer a test.

I'm using the latest (test) version of AM (march, 9th), and when I'm buying stage props on a stage I wont get charged for it.
Even though I can place them for free, they can be sold for cash from the family inventory after the show.

Removing AM solves the problem, so it's not an EA-bug I guess.

Now, by a "Stage", you mean that this is a community lot, right?

Yes, when using the sim-option to build a custom set for the stage right before the performance begins (where stage props are the only items available).

In regular buy-mode I get charged normally.

I also have been experiencing this.

Thanks again pescado for your quick updates :)

Game is patched to 1.32, all expansions added, with Awesomemod dated March 9 local time. Game allows portable instruments on a community lot stage to be dragged in live mode, causing immediate "TS3 has stopped working" crash and subsequent shutdown. Removing Awesomemod allows normal game interactions, where the mouse cursor is an arrow with a sprocket and these same portable instruments cannot be dragged.

Edit to add further observations. The game crashes whenever I drag an object while the cursor bears an arrow and a forbidden symbol. Sometimes the cursor remains as "go here", the arrow plus feet soles, but game will still crash if any mouse motion is applied while left-clicking.

Edit to share more information and a question. Whatever object is left-clicked and then dragged while playing in live mode on a community lot causes immediate game shutdown. It can be a decorative object, furniture or even drinks. Now using patch 1.33 with Awesomemod dated March 17 local time. Removing every custom content file except for Awesomemod (with and without aweconf) still causes the issue, while removing it restores expected behaviour. Am I the only one experiencing this?

I'm just inquiring as to when you will be bringing out the new version of AwesomeMod that is compatible with the newest update?

Or will you not be doing that?

Please let me know.

I'm using the latest (test) version of AM (march, 9th), and when I'm buying stage props on a stage I wont get charged for it.
Even though I can place them for free, they can be sold for cash from the family inventory after the show.
So I can't find what would cause this, and I don't have any saves in a position to test this. Someone send me a save.

I am using v1.32 of Sims 3 and AwesomeMod. But it CTD about 30mins of game time. Not really 30 min though, it varies, but it always crash in live mode.

I tried using only AwesomeMod and take out any other mod that I have been using, and the same thing still happen.
But, when I stop using AwesomeMod only, I could play like forever.. without crashing.

Btw, this had happen since v1.29 and it CTD whenever I play Sims 3 with AwesomeMod.

Hope there is a fix for this. :)

I must admit that I updated to 1.33 already, cause my game wasn't very stable with 1.32.
Does a 1.33 savegame (temporarily without AM of course) helps too?
Or is there someone else around who encountered this issue and is still on 1.32?

There is already a 1.33 AM, so go ahead and get it and let me know if you still have the problem. Then send me a save that is in a position where I can immediately reproduce the issue. Not gonna play your game for you. :P

I'm having a very odd problem with the latest version--Sims can't get the "soaked" moodlet; not from dive wells or shower in a can, nor mummies from showers. I checked to be sure; it happens with AM and no other CC, but if I remove AM then Sims can get soaked again.

Also, I don't know if this is related, but I'm also having random crashes every 15-20 minutes; again, happens with AwesomeMod and no other CC, stops without AwesomeMod. The crash log analyzer says it's due to CC. Troubleshooting, anyone?

ETA: It seems to work fine if I disable all the options on the configuration tool; the crashes stop but Sims still remain bone-dry. I can live without the "soaked" moodlet. I'll have to narrow down which option is causing crashes when I have some time; maybe something conflicts with something else. Apparently this isn't happening to other people, so I guess the bug is on my end, but if anybody knows about what might be going on here, I'd appreciate the info.

I don't know whether this bug existed before 'cause I've never used SC on a sim with a profession, but here it goes ... One of my sim is a PI working on a case, and he has to question 3 sims about some missing wallet. It is early morning so I decide to let him learn a gardening skill rather than housecalling for questioning. But when I activate SC on him and select 'skill: gardening' tone, he runs to some neighbor's pet horse and continuously tries to ask it about wallet.

Very much like the way PIs usually roll the want to question their newborn babies...

Wouldn't be surprised if the horse thing is an EA bug that AM has to compensate for. They're known for randomly thinking of non-sim objects as valid Sims. You know, remote-controlled cars, random babies, and apparently horses.

I'm not sure if this is an AM bug:  After patch 1.32, my Sim's (arr'ed) Store hairstyle defaulted to some base game fug -- but the same hairstyle is still usable in CAS. 

Is this because of EA's attempt to keep CC from transfering, even though I've never used Simport?  Can it be fixed, Pes?

I also got random crashes after 15 - 30 minutes into the game. The crashlog analyzer always tells unknown, so I first thought it's a hardware issue, but I checked my RAM just now and it's fine. Other games also work fine. So I'm gonna try the same thing you did and post here again. Maybe there is a combination of options, which don't combine well.

Anyone else playing with Genies find that SC cannot move them around properly? They have a special Genie glide instead of running that awesome mod doesn't seem to be able to utilize.

Also, maybe more feature request than bug but they can summon food, so SC shouldn't send them to cook.

I'm having frequent crashes, too. Only mods are 3/20 AwesomeMod, Showtime reg rewards, unlocked stage props, unlocked Showtime CAS, patched to 1.33.

It may be relevant, I'm not sure, but I had the config set to auto save (30 minutes), but the saves weren't being made. The crashes might have been happening when AM tried to auto save, but I didn't note the time.

[edit] I removed the config file, and still had a crash after about 35 minutes of play.

I don't have any in my game, so provide a save with one so I can test.

Can you zero on the crashing at all? Try to get a save close to a crash and see if the crashing repeats itself. I am unable to replicate the crashing behavior.

I saved about 5 minutes or so before a crash; when I got back to the point where it had crashed, it didn't crash again. Nothing specific seems to be happening to cause it, other than half an hour of continuous playtime.

What method are you using to install the mods, old or new?  It may be nothing, or it may be just coincidental, but when my crashes started with 1.29, I changed the mod setup from the new documents system to the old, original system, and haven't had a crash yet.

So, can someone tell my dumb ass if the download thread is current even though the dates haven't changed? I know asking stupid questions here is going to get me stabbed and made fun of, but I can't help it anymore.

I reported an error awhile back with my sims not being able to perform at Simfest. I have the newest version of AM, and finally just got a Simfest popup. So I went down to see if any of the updates since I first reported the error had fixed the issue, and the issue is still there. The sim can ask the proprietor to join the Simfest, then once the sim approaches the stage and goes to step up on it, everyone in the park resets, and my sim can no longer ask to perform. From there the Simfest no longer progresses either, nothing happens. The proprietor's "join Simfest" option is grayed out, saying that they are busy or something to that affect.

okay, I tried playing now ... if I set every option in the config-file to "disable" I can play for several hours without a crash. My next try was to just enable the first column in the config-file, which is the story driver. Set to enabled, Popcap 0 seems to crash the game after ~25 - 30 minutes. Next I will try the other options with the story driver disabled. I will report it here, after I tested the next sections.

Post by: J. M. Pescado on 2012 March 25, 02:07:40
Hmm. That's mighty peculiar. The only explanation I can think of might be overheating, since the Story Driver does tend to consume a fair chunk of power. Can't think of how it could outright crash, since it's pure C# code and doesn't have any dodgy hand-edited MSIL stuff in it.

save-walking doesn't help. I save manually every 12 ingame hours. When I reload a save, it just keeps going, until it crashes after ~30 minutes. No spikes in CPU usage, RAM usage and/or temperature.

Have you tried setting the popcap to something like 25 or 50, and seeing what happens?

just tried it, with settings to 25 and 50. Still crashes. But it seemed, that the game lasted longer when I set it to 25. Could play for an hour. But I had it on pause for a fair bit of the time, too.

I also activated InformOnStoryAction. There were several actions in the play time, like Romance, Skill or Work, but nothing specific at the crash time. Maybe the culprit is a stack, which is overflowing or something like that? I currently don't have my desktop PC ready, otherwise I would test it on that one, and my gf won't let me install it on her computer.

The Crash Log Analyzer says the last two were a "Corrupt Save Crash", while the ones before were "Unknown". I'm going to start a new neighborhood tomorrow.

I am currently uploading two savegames:
Twinbrook, where I experienced crashes and had several options enabled.
Twinbrook - AMdis, where I tested with all options off. This is the one, where I got "Corrupt Save" crashes.
Maybe this helps figuring out more.

After trying new version:

1. Sims still don't use chair/sofa when assigned to watch tv in most cases.
2. Sims still don't completely empty their bladder if they bought 'Steel Bladder' LTR.
3. Genies have always Face One even though 'NoVanillaPudding' is enabled.


---------
After some more testing, I found sims properly using chairs while watching TV only when the TV is in a moderate distance away. When the TV is too far, they prefer standing instead.

And when I got 10 additional lamps through cheating and summon the genies one by one, #1~3 had face one and #4 didn't. Apparently it was solely my bad luck.

With the newest Test-version of AM there is a bug with the "write thank-you-card" (playing the game in German, I don't know the exact English expression, sorry  :-[) at the mailbox after a wedding. The action is immediately cancelled. Without AM the Sim sits down at a table and writes the card.

Also, before the option to write that card appears at the mailbox, the Sim can take out a present box (=wedding present), but nothing new is added to the inventory and no message appears in the upper right corner. I am not sure if this is also a bug (or a feature  ;)).

I've tried all three mirrors and tried it with and without aweconf but I'm still at square one!

That's odd, I thought that was fixed already. Try starting the interaction closer to the chair, or the mailbox. AwesomeMod attempts to prevent sims from engaging in slow-ass 50-mile hikes to find a chair when they COULD just perform the action in-place.

Also, before the option to write that card appears at the mailbox, the Sim can take out a present box (=wedding present), but nothing new is added to the inventory and no message appears in the upper right corner. I am not sure if this is also a bug (or a feature  ;)).
It's possible that you ended up with zero candidates capable of giving you presents. AwesomeMod fixes the issue where you can receive presents from your horse, as well as being able to receive presents that the giving sims could not possibly afford: With AwesomeMod, the gift-giver must be able to actually buy the gift, or nothing will be given.

I tried the (then cancelled) interaction with a Sim standing directly beside the mailbox, but not yet with a Sim beside a chair/table. I'll try that next time I load up the game.

May be the fact that there was no wedding party the reason behind it? I just made an "instant-wedding" somewhere in the middle of the street, so there were no guests = no presents?  ???

Take that equation one step further.  No presents = no reason to write a thank you note.   Seriously, why would you want to write a note to someone who didn't give you a gift?  Could perhaps this little snag be why the action is cancelled?

Mind you, I've never bothered with this interaction so I can't in all faith say that EA doesn't allow you to write thank you notes to imaginary people.  Game logic is not the same as regular people logic.

May be the fact that there was no wedding party the reason behind it? I just made an "instant-wedding" somewhere in the middle of the street, so there were no guests = no presents?  ???

I had a loner sim who discovered a long lost wedding gift in his mailbox after his divorce. The gift giver was a friend of his ex wife's. So, I don't think you have to throw a wedding bash to receive presents—your sims just have to get married and have at least one friend.

I'm having cursor issues with the latest version. I'm patched up to 1.33. The cursor reports the wrong info, it doesn't seem to want to display the basic gear/cog icon when I mouseover objects, instead it shows as grayed out pointer, or as feet, or even the forbidden symbol. I tested with several different mod combinations-- none, only AM, everything but AM-- and it stops happening when AM isn't installed. The game is still playable since clicking still brings up the correct menus, it's just annoying to lose the proper 'you can interact with this' visual cue.

The 'maxmotives' cheat no longer works after switching households using the CTRL + Click interaction. Switching households also seems to disable the right clicking centering of a sim when right clicking on the portrait in the relationship panel. I have all EPs and SPs and I'm up to date.

I'm having cursor issues with the latest version. I'm patched up to 1.33. The cursor (...) shows as grayed out pointer, or as feet, or even the forbidden symbol.

Varmint, with Awesomemod installed, could you please try clicking and dragging an interactive object in a community lot (or anywhere other than current Sim's lot) and confirm if your game crashes? I have been testing and besides the previous CTD, the game also crashes to desktop when haphazardly dragging an object from the inventory of a Sim. It is also likely to CTD when issuing orders to playable Sims if the cursor moves a pixel in any direction while the left-button is pulsed.

This has been happening to me for a while now, but since I reported it last I was able to update my computer to something a little nicer.  It seems that when I have AM installed, my sims will not do random things around the house on their own.  SC is fine and all, but it constantly tries to make them bathe the pets when put on random.  Without SC, they just stand there and will not even perform basic self maintenance even when on 100% free will.  Sometimes I just want my sims to be...  Well...  Sims.  :)  Is there something I'm overlooking?  I love AM, but I also want the option to have my peoples just be random.

Otherwise, no issues...  Thank you, Pes.

I did this, took a boombox and a picnic basket to the park and was able to drag them around on the ground and in and out of inventories with no problems, no crashes. My cursor just doesn't display the correct icons on most interactable objects.

EDIT: After re-reading your instructions I did experience a CTD by leaving the playable sims on their home lot, scrolling my camera over to the nearest park and click-dragging on chess tables. Restarted and was able to repeat the CTD the same way.

Random Crap basically just runs the EAxis autonomy when there's nothing else to do. Predictably, the actions chosen will lack any sense of purpose or appropriateness. If you don't care about that, then go ahead and use that setting...but otherwise, maybe you should select an actual goal.

Not sure what is causing this which is why I'm posting it here.
Every so often the sting for picking up a collectable will play multiple times without my Sims having gone anywhere near a collectible item.
So far I have noticed it when initially playing a save file from a previous version of AM and then some time during the night. It can play anywhere from 3 to 10 times before it stops. The sound isn't continuous, there is usually a pause between each play of a few seconds.
If I had SC enabled then I would expect this when other Sims went out collecting stuff but I have never made use of SC, ever.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: J. M. Pescado on 2012 April 01, 15:53:21
That's actually a generic sound effect used for many things in the game, so most likely, a non-playable sim is performing some StoryMode action in the background that causes this sound effect to play. Since AwesomeStory actually makes sims do things, things that EA might not have expected, and therefore did not put a squelch in for the sound effect when performed by a non-active sim, you may get odd sound notifications that play when this occurs.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: Menaceman on 2012 April 01, 16:14:07
Ah right. I've encountered it with the profession promotion sting before and rightly (it seems) assumed that it was because AM was allowing non-played Sims to join professions, gain performance and then promotions.
This is the first time I've come across it with the "collectible" sting though which is what made me question it.

Just an update on the maxmotives problem. I was playing today and I stuck with one family. I went to use the cheat again and it had stopped working again. I'm now wondering if it could be something to do with the Live Venues for Showtime. It's a bit of a confusion though because I had a few shows in the same place during this playthrough and it only stopped working at the end of my session. On the last occasion the cheat went back to normal after I reloaded the game. I imagine that it will do the same thing again this time.

Also, and I don't know if this is AM related, but I've noticed that Sims become stuck on the same lot for days on end. One of my Sims graduated and there was a crowd (about 27 Sims) on the same lot. I went by it a few Simdays later and the crowd was still there outside the town hall. This is happening in a few other lots where the same Sims will remain there for days at a time. For the 20-odd Sims at the town hall, I ended up using the ResetSim * to get them all away.

Is this every day or just when they get promoted to the next level? Because that's what happens in my game and has been like that since at least Late Night. I can't remember whether Sims were actually supposed to get a day off after being promoted and that Awesome removes this behaviour or whether it's a problem with the game itself, but work performance should be back to normal on the second day after a promotion.

The sim will be stuck going to work until the boss sim shows up to work. I reset the boss sim when they don't show up for a long time in case they are stuck somewhere and that fixes it, though usually they show up after a few minutes and I use that time to "take it easy" to build up fun if they need it since you can't do anything else.

This is not AM related, but an EA bug.

No, it only happens when the previous shift ends on the same day, promotion or no promotion.

The boss is working fine. It must be tied to the shift spanning over two different days.

I'm also getting lab coat spam from the lab station - a new work outfit being added every time the station is used. I know it's an EA bug, but they never care.

Like Kasmira, I am also having this issue. I've tested it with and without CC, and narrowed it down to AwesomeMod. Sims act like they are set to no autonomy at all time. This results in them standing in the same place doing nothing, even if they are starving or have other needs issues.

I am posting this very reluctantly. I installed Showtime on the 5th of April, and I have been extensively experimenting in hope of fixing this on my own, but I have failed. I am thinking it must be AwesomeMod's doing. Other than furniture and deco stuff installed through the Launcher, I've tried playing vanilla (cleared caches and all) with just AwesomeMod and NRaas Error Trap,  I've also tried playing new games and new saves both with and without AwesomeMod...but within the first two minutes or so of loading the game—it crashes, but only when AwesomeMod is in. Speeding up time can hasten the crash, but so can doing completely different things each time. I don't have the slightest idea of what's causing it! As of yesterday, I had the latest version. I just now finished up another test by adding back all of my CC and mods, sans AwesomeMod—no crashes.
I created a log of all of my crashes. They are all access violations with differing end numbers. If you would like to see them all, please tell me.

EDIT: This is now the most recent crash log I have. It was taken with just AwesomeMod, Awesome Config, Error Trap, and NoIntro in place.

That's a very unusual error, since it's not supposed to ever happen, and is buried in the bowels of an EAxian function. I cannot think of any feasible reason this should happen, since it represents a violation of a basic structural rule of the game. This means something is wrong with your neighborhood.

Hello,

I have got a problem with partly freezing user interfaces. It only happens when awesomemod is installed and it seems to related to households with at least one baby in it.
I am only using the base game.

The exact symptomes are:
- The small pictures an the left side all get the light inner frame which signalles the Sim currently selcted, when you click through your Sims. It disappeares after a while so only the selected Sim has the light frame but if you select another Sim it happens again.
- The big Sim-picture in the UI and the wishes panel does not chance on selecting another sim.
- I can still click through the UI tabs but on selecting another Sim the relationships, inventory, oppotunities, lifetime points and needs panel do not change while the Simology and skills still change.
- The moodlets are not changing on selecting another Sim but they count down.
- Otherwise I can go into build/buy mode and into map view and the problem still exitsts even when I change the household though I can use the sim played normally. Though when I change the household the little icons on the left side still show the old household and do not adapt.

The problem might be related to the following NRaas ErrorTrap message when I reset the whole town with NRaas MasterController:

Quote
System.NullReferenceException: A null value was found where an object instance was required.

That's mighty peculiar, since nothing was changed there in ages. Is your sim dressed in swimwear parts or something? The swimwear category doesn't give this moodlet.

The error trap message doesn't mean anything since resetting the town is supposed to cause a reset exception, although why it traps is unclear.

Your UI error, however, is just kind of mysterious. Does it happen in just your specific neighborhood, or in any neighborhood? No one else has reported this, I can't reproduce it, and something this serious would have been a dealbreaker. Are you SURE that this is the only thing installed?

EDIT: Correction, it does not only happen in households with babies. Now it happend in a household with 2 YA and one toddler.
That's very odd. Does this affect clean stock-game neighborhoods as well, or just your oddball neighborhood? If this happens in a "clean" base neighborhood, send save.

As I understand it errortrap traps everything so that it can be used in any incompatabilty testing that may be needed to run when you upgrade your game. Unimportant errors get their notifications turned off as and when they are deemed officially unimportant (again). Maybe Thetys is using an old/testing version of errortrap?

Hello again. I've been getting those wonderful little CTDs again. And while they've been a bit less prevalent, I get a crash caused by a "Corrupt Save Game" that doesn't make sense since I've been able to reload the exact same save that crashed and continue playing for hours without incident. I've heard somewhere using "Save As..." rather than regular saving method helps,  but I can't confirm. I have the error report right here if needed.

Provided that you can load up the old corrupted save, you don't have to start over. For example: All you have to do is click "Save As..." and then you change your file name from ABC to ABC1. If you get another crash and it comes up as a corrupt save, load up your old save and name it to ABC2—and so on and so forth. It works for me.

As much as I hate to be this guy, I'm at the end of the road here. With my current family, I get the crash after about 2 Sims days. Switched to random townie while the purge began. I have done everything in the crash check list, ran every Twallan and Delphy mod, same result. I've even done some of the more obscure voodoo methods to fix the issue. It all comes down to AM.
Sim day starts late Weds. night, crash by Friday. I'm up to date in all patches and AM package. So, I ran the game with AM out, no crash. But of course without AM mods, the game is unbearable in it's own right and useless to me as a tool of fun. And here I sit for 2 weeks on workers comp. and nothing to do with my useless injured time...any thoughts?

Save often and try to zero in on the crash. Once you can get it to die within an hour or so, send me the save. I've been trying to reproduce this, but it never happens for me.

You can't even *DO* that without AwesomeMod, though, right? I will take a look at this, if you say it happens in every game.

UPDATE: Could not reproduce. Performing the sequence you described functions normally. I can only conclude that you are trying something that you are not telling me about because of your CREEPY PEDO TENDENCIES.

That is not a save and is absolutely useless. I need an actual saved game, one which you can get to crash within an hour or so of loading every time. Try to zero in on the crashing behavior by saving regularly until you get close to whatever is crashing.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: MizzCerise on 2012 May 03, 20:51:43
Sorry 'bout that, been ages since I even bothered with this game, only bought the expansions a couple weeks ago as I'd forgotten what a nightmare it can be to run. I see now what you mean by save game files.

Anyhow, I reckon the problem is actually Appaloosa Hills or whatever. It became unbearable to even play test in, as it grinds to a halt every 10 sim minutes, so I switched over to Starlight City (?) which is a clean slate, and wouldn't you know it, runs fine with AM. I have no idea why and I'm too annoyed to care, but I thank you for the offer of help. I'm sure I'll be back when the new town crashes and burns...or I'll throw all my discs in the trash and vow never to play again.

Post by: J. M. Pescado on 2012 May 05, 05:06:21
I'm guessing your neighborhood has sustained some form of corruption that causes the advanced processing features of AwesomeMod to choke, such as someone getting stuck in an impenetrable obstacle: Doesn't happen in my Appaloosa game, though. If you can get it to reliable crash within a short interval of loading, it's possible to find out WHICH sim might be crashing it by systematically destroying half the humans in the game in a binary search until you narrow it down to one culprit fambly. Usually I find that offending fambly exhibits some form of data corruption.

i'm having the same problem as poopyseedmuffin. I have a feeling it might be conflicting with a mod he/she and i have downloaded from modthesims. Could this be possible? (all i did was test it out to see if i had that problem, then turned that setting off, i promise) It keeps crashing. If you want, i can pm you a link to my log in info on modthesims and you can see if any of my interaction mods might be messing with it?

Or, you could do a few minutes of troubleshooting and figure it out for yourself.

Can you elaborate more? My understanding is that you're supposed to be charged, so that when you sell the props, you don't get free money. Wasn't this fixed earlier?

Post by: vorpal on 2012 May 06, 10:51:58
I've got quite some problems with inactives, homeless to be precise, and the Showtime professions. Part of these happen in vanilla, too, so it's not solely AM:
Inactives seem to change professions randomly and also their respective levels and this has lead to multiple role and profession assignments (and the constant playing of the profession related music). I play Lunar Lakes and there is one homeless Sim who seemed to be stuck in performing Acrobatics but his career says Vocal Legend. He was an acrobat before, true, but was assigned the singer career some time later. Approximately half an hour after I had reset that Sim I got an FSE (attached).
Then things started to act up. A mixologist suddenly appeared in the world as an acrobat but according to MasterController was still also a mixologist and in addition a second acrobat was spawned who seems to have been a singer before.
I also noticed that when AwesomeStory assigns a career to a homeless Sim these don't stick. I sometimes get notifications twice within a few minutes that SoSo is going to get a job in SuchSuch and several days later the same happens again.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: Menaceman on 2012 May 06, 18:23:28
I wonder if what Vorpal has said is why I have noticed the music stings going off so regularly since installing SHT?

Right, to the *issue* with the stage props.
It is my understanding that when a non-active Simport Sim visits a venue to perform and you are asked to set up the stage for their performance, that any props you place should NOT be charged to your active family since it is the visiting Sim using them.
As it currently stands in my game, when a Simport Sim visits and I set up the stage, my active household gets charged for every stage prop/item I place.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: vorpal on 2012 May 07, 07:47:20
Due to repeated crashes or lock-up freezes I played the same save several times now and can hopefully add to the homeless issue.
What happens is usually this: Simon Hart is homeless and wants to become a Master Thief. During the night AM tells him to get a job at the criminal headquarters and the message appears: "Simon Hart going to get a job at Orbital Distribution Company". Several hours later I get the musical tune from Ambitions that tells that someone joined a profession. It's Simon Hart. He's a Singer now. Then I get two more tunes playing which usually tell that someone in a profession got promoted and a final flourish, which I think indicates that someone in a profession completed a high-level task. Simon Hart is now a level 5 Singer. The next night AM tells Simon Hart to get a job in criminal. Rinse and repeat. Simon Hart now has a career history of being a level 1 criminal, level 7 acrobat, level 5 singer and level 1 magician. After 6 weeks into the game.
I also added the LTW for becoming Master Acrobat, Magician and Singer to three other of those homeless. But the Singer, who has been a level 10 singer for quite some time now, seems to not have completed that LTW.

And as regards the crashing. I haven't gone too far into narrowing it down to something specific, but it usually happens shortly after AM Story Progression sends some Sim on a skilling mission. It doesn't matter who or what skill, but Athletics seems to increase the chances for crashes as it cannot be done with books. One of my Sims happened to be on the lot of a Sim that received the OneShot Command and they were chatting. My Sim discovered a shared trait and received the "talk about shared traits" action, which cannot be cancelled, but the OneShot Sim was sent to bed. Gameplay became choppy while the other Sim went to sleep and when my Sim finally dropped the "talk about shared traits" command and I could order him to do something else, the game crashed.
I also noticed that OneShot Commanded Sims are sent around half the town just to use a toilet and as Lunar Lakes is so spread out this increases the chance for crashes as this mission takes so long.
Is it also possible that SupremeCommander has become more aggressive than it used to? Because I find it much more difficult now to interrupt Sims that are on a mission. And I found three Sims in the library that had been there for days skilling Charisma and Gardening but haven't dropped their books despite having maxed out that skill already. They kept reading a book they are supposed not to be able to read anymore.

Here are my details: All EP's except for Pets, patched from 1.24 to 1.29, then incrementally from 1.29 to 1.31 to 1.33. AM is from 2012-Apr-22 17:38:51. World is Lunar Lakes and I haven't changed the default lots but added some Late Night bars. No Showtime venues.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: J. M. Pescado on 2012 May 07, 10:00:22
Fixed: Homeless uninstantiated sims no longer able to apply for Active Careers. Sims who already have jobs will not be dragooned as show NPCs, as this messes up their existing career.

Re: my crashes during AwesomeStory skill missions. Again I had troubles with a Sim that was sent to skill up Athletics. This time, however, there was no crash but the Sim was reset and I got two ScriptErrors from ErrorTrap (attached). The first happened when the Sim in question was interrupted in his mission to the gym by the start of his work shift. On entering the rabbithole he was reset and I got the error. The second happened after his shift had ended and I made that Sim active because I wanted him to get divorced and move back into his old house. On leaving the move screen the error popped up, the Sim was reset and the UI became broken - I couldn't pause the game anymore or open the main menu anymore and had to end the game with task manager.
I don't think that it's the Sim itself, as it's not the same that caused problems before. And I tend to be convinced that my crashes had always happened when Athletics was involved. Other skill mission work ok, at least they don't crash the game, although they still tend to not finish after a while.
I also got two saves, one shortly before the first reset and one before I made that Sim active and began the divorce-move scenario.

According to the error logs, the error you're getting should never happen and the same sim is responsible for both errors. Recommended solution: Kill With Fire.

I have no idea what the hell happened there. Does that always happen with every household, or just that one? It seems like your neighborhood is deeply corrupt and things have gotten decoupled from actual objects.

That sounds like the EAxis auto-clean. Community and inactive lots are normally supposed to autoclean themselves, since as no one is responsible for their upkeep, they would become horribly polluted without it. Are you saying it is now also affecting the active lot? Is this lot also an apartment lot? The EAxis code cleans up the following types of lots automatically:
1. Community Lots.
2. Non-Active Lots.
3. Base Camps.
4. Apartments.

It is my understanding that when a non-active Simport Sim visits a venue to perform and you are asked to set up the stage for their performance, that any props you place should NOT be charged to your active family since it is the visiting Sim using them.
Okay, verify that it now works both ways. I don't have ANY means of testing something this bizarre.

No, just happened once and another attempt to track them succeeded a few Sim days later. But could a resetworld perhaps recouple things again?

I need a little bit of help or advice please.  I'm having an issue which I believe may be related to the new store patch that was released today.  I am currently using AM, NoMemories, NoIntro, NraasOverwatch, NraasCareer, a Custom Career and some of Cmar's hacks.  The game will CTD within approximately twenty minutes of play time.  I have removed my other hacks and I think it may be AM related.  Should I wait for another AM update, try to generate an error log or upload a save?  I have had no problems with my hack setup prior to the store update and my hacks are up to date.  I also had issues installing the patch as well.  Would a reinstall of the game be out of the question?


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: J. M. Pescado on 2012 May 15, 09:35:52
If you are getting crashing, try to zero in on the crashing by saving regularly, until you can get the crashing to occur shortly after the save. If you say it crashes 20 minutes after you save, then save every 5 minutes until it crashes. Then start playing, and save every minute...until it crashes. When it crashes within a minute of play despite doing nothing except unpausing, then send the save to me and I will examine it some more.

However, an interesting phenomenon I have observed is that often, when these alleged crashes are sent to me, I run the game just fine without anything crashing.

I'm having a hiccup with Supreme Commander, I think. When the Sims are queued to eat by SC, it works fine. However, when I Ctrl-Click and instruct them to eat, they just keep preparing group meals and putting them in the fridge, over and over, and never eat anything.

I have some object CC, but nothing kitchen related, and no other mods. Installed are Ambitions, Pets, WA, and HELS, and I'm patched to 1.33. The last time I downloaded a fresh copy of AM was about 2 days ago.

Post by: J. M. Pescado on 2012 May 19, 02:37:07
That is...mighty peculiar, since the two outcomes are the same, as automatic eat just launches the same Eat command you launch manually. Got a save of this behavior? Do your sims have odd trait or attribute combinations which may cause them to produce food they can't eat, like vegetarians, vampires, or robots?


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: SJActress on 2012 May 19, 05:55:51
I considered that as well, but they don't have anything weird attached to them. One was a YA created in CAS, and she only had skilling-type traits and Good Sense of Humor. The other was a teenager when it happened to him  (born in game, son of the YA), and I didn't choose anything odd for him, but I haven't played in so long, I can't remember if Sims develop hidden traits or not (and if Vegetarian would ever be a hidden trait). I just moved a bunch of people out, so I will see if it is still happening and submit a save on Sunday.

ETA: I've searched and not found the info I needed, and I've never had to attach anything here. Do I need to zip the entire .sims3 folder for that particular save game, or do you just need a particular file within that folder? Or am I way off?

"Use Bathroom" command causes the Sim to pick a shower/ bath combo that doesn't exist on their home lot, causing them to run away from the home lot for a few seconds, then drop the command after, then once again the game selects the shower /bath combo, then drop the command again. Toilets work fine.

I still get crashes within a few days as soon as Story Progression is turned on, this time on a different, and much better, computer, with a freshly installed game and no Store content, with only AM, ErrorTrap and Overwatch as mods. It's hard to say what is causing it but I had "radar all" on and there was one Sim on a skilling mission. AM had sent her to a sarcophagus in a museum to sleep and she had remained in there for several hours despite a maxed energy motive. This is similar to what I had observed in my previous games where Sims on a skilling mission fail to end an interaction as soon as the respective need is maxed or the buff is achieved, thus perhaps causing the crash (?). In my previous games I also had Sims on a mission sleeping for days. In those cases, however, their energy motive didn't change at all, therefore keeping them eternally asleep - until I crashed.
I got no error reports only the EA crash log, which, I guess, is useless.

I've recently switched from an EAxian (Barnacle Bay) neighborhood to a custom neighborhood. No bugs in Barnacle Bay, but it seems that sims like to pick community lot showers than home lot showers in the custom neighborhood. It's a small annoyance, really, so I'm not too bothered.

I just downloaded the newest version of awesome mod and have discovered since doing so that the launcher will no longer install anything. I tried removing possible conflicts, however the problem continued to exist. So, out of pure curiosity, I removed awesome mod and tried installing again and it worked. I haven't taken the time to do an extensive search, so I don't know if this has been reported already. I just thought I take some of my own precious time to help others, assuming there is a need for it! Hopefully this information will help you identify a possible bug and correct it!

Does AM have a special addtrait function for pets? Because I just tried to add the genius trait to a kitten and it added the sim version of the trait instead of the pet version. It dropped the clueless trait just fine though. What I opened the "modify traits for active sim" popup, the sim-genuis trait didn't show up and neither did the pet-genius trait.
Did I miss something?

There's a clue in what you've written right there.

That the popup's called 'modify traits for active sim' instead of pet doesn't seem to be a problem. I can add and drop traits (the pet ones if I shift-click on a pet) just fine using it, with the only problem that I have to choose a minimum of three. I've actually used that and droptrait afterwards and the combo worked just fine. The only bug was addtrait adding sim traits to pets. But, since a workaround exists, it's not really that important anymore.

I can't think of anything else you might be referring to.

ETA: droptrait doesn't drop the pet version of the Adventurous trait. It says the pet doesn't have that trait. The pet wasn't born with it, it was trained, if that makes any difference.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: J. M. Pescado on 2012 June 03, 10:51:57
The version of traits for pets are not the same as the sim version. Genius, for instance, is known as "GeniusPet" on Pets. Console commands require some understanding of how things work on the inside, if you want a UI to hold your hand through the process, use the one EAxis provided.

* Dog chewing a newspaper toy.

* setconfig enabledebuginteractions true

Finally have my crashing pinpointed.  Not sure if this is AM but could not find another person with this problem in my searching.  Game CTD when my sims pull items from inventory in public places.  Once was when my sim took her mother's remains in her inventory and placed them in the cemetery in Twinbrook.  The other was when the Goth family decided to have a birthday party at the party warehouse and used the birthday cake from the mom's inventory.  From what I did find when searching other people are able to have a venue party complete with cake with no probelm.   I'm still at 1.33 with AM of 5/13.

Hi, got a strange problem with Awesome mod, installed pets recently and updated to the new awesome mod version ( because it didnt run without it naturally ). Now as soon as I go to a families house, instead of the normal sim selection I got a dozen ( more like dozens ) of dummy sims in that selection which do nothing.

Any Idea what bug this is and how to fix it? I can add a screen later if needed

Sounds like you either haven't patched properly or have outdated junk clogging your files.

Thanks for the quick response, but I'm kinda clueless right now, regarding inproper patching, the mod or the game? I'm pretty sure the game is up to date Oo
Old files could be, if yes, where would they be ?

thanks

Edit: okay thanks, i'll try to reinstall the whole sims 3 kerfuffle and try again, the scorched earth method usually works =)

Mailboxes no longer seem to function as such. They get the hand tool on hover, and are moveable objects, but have no clickable actions. Still works for the shiftclick menu. The mailman comes, but sims do not receive mail.

Edit: In the Investigator career path, case phone calls no longer receive the info pop-up and instead are automatically accepted.

Mailboxes work just fine in my game.  Have you added any mods/CC that may affect the mailbox?  If it was a universal problem, there would be a hell of a lot of people complaining about it.

Huh that's weird, I'm having the same problem.  I thought it was just me.  I don't have anything that should affect mt mailbox.  One other thing I went ahead and arred the KP crap ( I know, I know) I've only had this problem since then.  Also when I open the launcher and try to play it asks for my disc, which I of course don't have. I've never had that problem either.  I'm patched all the way, have current AM, and all mods have been updated.  I have all sp and ep's.

Ok, I'm about ready to kick this game in the balls. It's freezing and crashing all the time and it's been happening for a while so I can't seem to find out exactly what's causing it. I think it started happening shortly after installing showtime and updating from 1.29. I'm using a custom world, but I don't think that's the issue because I've always played in that neighborhood. I tried playing in Starlight Shores and I still got occasional freezes. I don't think it's due to any particular interaction because it's happened so many times and it doesn't matter what my sim is doing. I've been playing with the same mods I always have, they're updated for the latest patch and I know nothing conflicts with AM. I've tried playing w/ no mods except AM and it still happens. One thing I did notice is that when I turned AM's story progression off, it didn't crash. But I don't want to use EA's crappy story progression, I've always been using the awesome story driver. I do know that the patches that came after 1.29 have a tendency to cause crashing. The world I'm playing in is called Shearwater, created by simsample at sims cave. Is there a way Pescado can test out my game to see what exactly is causing it to crash all of a sudden? Do I upload the file in my "saves" folder? And I use "insert FTP link" to attach it, right?

Have you tested CC to see if that is the cause? (I don't mean mods)
Have you tried using Error Trap?
Have you tried a new copy of the world you use?
Have you tried fix all?
HAVE YOU ACTUALLY DONE ANYTHING OTHER THAN INSIST PESCADO FIX IT FOR YOU?

It may be that your PC just can't handle AM story progression, it does take a bit of grunt to run. You said you don't get crashes if you turn it off, so I suspect that's your problem right there.

Debugging doesn't affect anything. But I'm quite certain this is an AM bug, as I've pulled all other CC and only with it does this occur. I'm on the latest patch, however I do not have WA or SHT. Nor any SPs.

Or he has been running the hood for AGES, and there are too many sims/borked sims that don't occur in a new hood. Most EA hoods are laggy from the get go, so it's not really a valid test.

Hm, I've had the same since 1.33: random crashing as soon as AM story progression is turned on, on two different computers (Core2Duo 2.8 GHz, 4GB, Geforce 9600M GT vs. i7 3770 3.4 GHz, 8 GB, Geforce GTX 570), two different OSs (Vista vs Windows 7), with or without other mods, in various different worlds whether custom or EA made, in fresh saves and old ones. I turn SP off and I can play for days, I turn SP on and I crash within the first few hours and then on a regular basis for the whole play session. The crashes are either back to desktop or a total lockup of the whole computer.
I reset every Sim as soon as I get a notification that they are about to skill and the crashes stop. I replace AM SP with another SP module, and I don't crash either.
The only thing that both set-ups have in common is that AM is installed the "new" way in Documents along with everything else and that I play as user, not administrator, but with full access to TS3W and that I launch directly from TS3W.

HOW you install shouldn't make any difference whatsoever, once it works.

Will investigate issue. Is there any specific skilling you notice that triggers this? Do your own sims experience any skilling-related issues?


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: vorpal on 2012 June 18, 16:16:42

Hard to say. The last two Sims had to skill gardening or logic, respectively. My main impression, however, is that athletics is more likely than others. One guess was that it depends less on the skill itself than on the method of skilling. Attending classes in rabbitholes seems to be fine, sending Sims to the library, too. Maybe it happens when there's an object involved? Although my main impression is that it happens during the buff-up routine. I had a whole town on radar and before the crashes I had usually 2-3 Sims on a skilling mission that were still occupied with either sleeping, or cooking/eating using the bathroom or trait related activities like freak-out, gussy up or admire self.
This is a quote from a previous post I made:
Quote
One of my Sims happened to be on the lot of a Sim that received the OneShot Command and they were chatting. My Sim discovered a shared trait and received the "talk about shared traits" action, which cannot be cancelled, but the OneShot Sim was sent to bed. Gameplay became choppy while the other Sim went to sleep and when my Sim finally dropped the "talk about shared traits" command and I could order him to do something else, the game crashed.
And ErrorTrap is no help there. When the game crashes it's too late for ErrorTrap to catch anything. All I get are the crash logs and they invariably are interpreted by CrashLogAnalyzer as Save corruption. And apart from this all the games I have played since then are remarkably error log free.
Quote
Do your own sims experience any skilling-related issues?
No, they have maxed out various skills with no trouble, including athletics.

Edit: I remember something that may be related. In my last attempt to narrow it down to something I had one Sim that was sent to the gym by SP in order to skill athletics. I left the game running for one Sim week in Map View and he remained there for the whole week with "work out until fatigued". During that time several other Sims had gone to the gym autonomously and worked out until fatigued and properly left after a few hours. The SP sent Sim remained there indefinitely despite having a job (in Sports) and having by then maxed out this skill. The other Sims had continued with their lives normally. This game did not crash, but I found this quite curious.

Have you tried a new game in a fresh hood?  You are certain it is an AM bug, but it isn't.  I have all EP/SPs, fully patched, along with AM and a few other assorted mods, and the mailboxes in my game, as in most peoples is working just fine.  Which would suggest it may well be something specific to you and your game.

Vorpal:  Where are you launching the game from?  The TS3W.exe in the base game folder or the latest EP/SP .exe?  I recently switched from the TS3W.exe to TS3SP06.exe and saw a huge difference in the game performance, the lags stopped, and the crashing appears to have also stopped, with 6 and 5 hours continuous play the last two days without any hiccups.  Might be nothing other than pure coincidence, but anything is worth a shot.

TS3W in the base game folder, yes. I tried your suggestion quickly but only noticed that TS3EP06 seems to just refer back to TS3W anyway. At least in Task Manager it says that TS3W is being run. There is another TS3EP06 exe, however, in the base game folder under Game/Bin/Packs, together with the exes for all the other EPs/SPs and the EP6 BETA. I couldn't launch from there, as it asked for online-authentication and then quit. Performance-wise I can't say anything as lag hasn't really been an issue and no crashes at all other than when I turn SP on. The only lag that I've noticed so far since re-installing on the new computer is when the insect spawners change from butterflies to fireflies at, I think, 11 p.m. and the Collection Helper is still set on insects. Ah yes, and when some horse is stuck somewhere.

I did have crashing issues as well. These were probably awesomemod-related, since I had never experienced a crash before. I am playing the base game, no downloadable or custom content.

However the game was still more enjoyable even with the crashes so I kept on playing; the interesting thing is that they are gone now. Could that be of some use to you ? Is it possible that some initial elements are incompatible to what awesome affects but these elements are removed as time goes by ?

FYI, I installed the mod in the program directory and completely removed all content from the user profile documents before restarting the game. I then edited sunset valley to add cribs. Using an old cribbed sunset valley I found on the forum caused unbearable crashes at a certain point.

Post by: J. M. Pescado on 2012 June 29, 00:01:25
iIf the crashing just plain DISAPPEARS when you try to zero in on it, then it's probably a game-eating-RAMz issue. Even installing Moar RAMz won't help, because the game is crippled by its 32-bit nature in how many RAMz it can use.

Examination of your log reveals that, apparently, your neighborhood has some kind of corrupt want listener, because the error in question is buried in the bowels of EAxia, and is part of the want controller, rather than AwesomeMod itself. So, basically, something is just deeply messed up in your game.

I've been having a problem with sending sims home early while on vacation... I sent 3 people on an 11 day vacation to China and a few days in I sent the son home early and I got an error trap report. I didn't think it was a big deal but by the end of the 11 days when the two parents went back home the son wasn't there. Instead he was listed in my foreign visitors section and I could successfully invite him to my house as a visitor...

Later I sent the two parents back to China and tried to see if I could reproduce the problem and the dad got an error report too. Immediately after they call they disappear into thin air.. Is this a common problem or does my game have some issue?

By the way, when I sent the dad home they were at their vacation house. The time I sent the son home they still lived at the base camp.

This is one of those mystery errors that, as best as I can tell, really has nothing to do with AwesomeMod since that particular piece of code is pretty much exactly the same as the EAxian version and does not contain anything different that could generate a nullref error, meaning it's the EAxis code that is causing that. The Awesome version actually has far MORE error trapping than the EAxian version, so you'd get this same error without it.

Basically, it means the sim in question is just plain corrupted.

Hello, sorry to be a bother, but I am experiencing a bizarre glitch since the latest patch. When clicking on a build mode object in the catalog, the details it pulls up have a blank space where the larger picture should be, the word "moodlet" under it, and no color/design options. Buy mode objects display normally. In addition, some newly-placed walls (2nd story and above, 1st story functioned normally) appeared blue and would only show as "up" or "down", not cutaway.

I have removed every speck of custom content from my game except for Awesomemod to no avail; only when I removed Awesomemod did the objects display normally. I tested Awesomemod alone in a new town after deleting all caches but still found the bug.

edit: after additional testing, I found that using the config tool to disable improved object information allows build objects to function normally. However, prior to the recent update, that feature worked fine.

Bug:  Being architect and relationship goes up automatically to becoming best friends without much interaction.  All I did was begin renovation without chatting and then turn in.

I did a google search and this problem seems to have existed since 2010 with people becoming best friends after a renovation.  All the answers I found were people (including Pescado on MTS) suggesting that it was due to charisma skills and other relationship boost effects.  No, it's not.   I was looking at my sim relationship and moused over the little sim icon at each picture which displays the relationship from 0-100 with one decimal place  10.1, 10.2 10.3 ... the relationship was going up one decimal place at a time across the board automatically.  This seems as annoying, maybe even more than the bed bug mood a while back.  I have to save the game, reload it for it to stop.

Any fix?  Reloading every day isn't going to help, it stops it momentarily until you start going on the clock and performing designs again.  the "free" relationship gains keeps happening.   On another similar note, something I haven't witnessed myself, I found on search that playing tag also does it.  Someone became fulfilled a wish to become BBF during their sleep and it happens they were playing tag early in the day.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: J. M. Pescado on 2012 July 26, 14:49:23

Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: firstcharmander on 2012 July 26, 22:57:22
I like to think it's EA related based on search results, but I have no idea since I have not played without awesomemod.

I only other mod I have that edits relationship is No Car Relationships  @  http://modthesims.info/download.php?t=419204


Edit: Some more testing,  when you accept renovation, the relationship with the client starts going up 0.1 automatically every few sim minutes until you reload the game file.
What basically happened was the only sims I knew were clients I did renovations for and I never reloaded the game, so my entire relationship panel was sparkling and going up.

Having some issues with Awesomemod.   No other mods or CC are in use.  I'm experiencing CTD when using Supreme Commander's 'Task:Work & School' functionality with the Journalism and Firefighter professions.

With journalism, TS3 will crash while preforming the action sequence [Supreme Commander > Task: Work & School > Trash Rummage].  While attempting to isolate this, I noticed that TS3 would also crash if a character had [Supreme Commander > Task: Work & School > Trash Rummage] queued while saving.  It didn't seem to matter which garbage can was being rummaged, any would cause a crash.  No crash occurs while using [Supreme Commander > Trash Rummage] by itself.  The issue only seems to occur when 'Task: Work and School' is being used and the sim attempts to rummage trash as part of their work routine.

With Firefighter, TS3 will crash while performing the sequence [Supreme Commander > Task: Work & School > Maintain] on the trucks or the alarm.  Manually selecting the 'Maintain' option with Supreme Commander running allows the sim to complete the action successfully with no CTD, similar to the Trash Rummage issue.

Crash log analyzer indicates a corrupt save error.  The error logs themselves all have the same exception 'ACCESS_VIOLATION reading address 0x00000030'.  I was able to find some various solutions associated with that specific error message but nothing has worked yet; I'm still able to reproduce my crashes every time.

Any help would be appreciated.

Even though I cannot think of any logical reason why this would happen in the first place, I randomly rearranged the lines of code that didn't actually need to be any specific order and recompiled the entire mess, and the problem went away. I still have no idea why it would crash, and essentially just pulled out all the wires and then put them back in the same way they were to begin with, and it still went away.

Shrug. Try new update?

I'm having the exact same problem.  Gonna try running w/o the updater and with a freshly d/ld AM.


[edit] First, it does not appear to be an issue if you d/l the AM and run w/o updater...dunno why.  Secondly, the initial problem seems to be from SC telling a sim to rummage in the trash when that's not actually a valid command.  Dunno about the firefighter stuff, haven't messed with it.

Deleting the awesome.package file and d/l it again (from the AWESOMEMOD! SHINY! (http://www.moreawesomethanyou.com/smf/index.php/topic,15185.0.html) thread) didn't produce any changes.  The build information still appears to be the same.  The crashes still occur at the same times, under the same conditions.

What happened to the NPC Motor Pool? 

Without AwesomeMod (or with AwesomeMode prior to Generations), any sim without out a vehicle received one (usually a Sloppy Jalopy or Big Lemon) from the NPC Motor Pool.

Currently with AwesomeMod installed, all of my sims without vehicles are being driven around in the back of taxis.  (In France, only kespas are being used.  Without AwesomeMod, jalopies and other cars are used by tourist and locals.)

Has anyone else seen this?

I brought this issue up last fall.  J. M. Pescado said it should not be happening and he would look into it.  No new information followed so I decided to try again to have this corrected.

Fresh install, fresh hood...but I don't wanna clog up this thread w non-am issues.  I've got some leads to follow up on from other sims sites, so I'll figure it out eventually.

For some reason TS2-Aging does not seem to be working in my game. I set it up on the configuration file, and "showconfig" says it is activated, but all the sims in the world keep aging, not only my active family. Is there anything I should keep in mind that I might be missing?

Probably not a bug. Those 12s have probably not learned to drive, and therefore, cannot drive their own vehicles even from the NPC motor pool.

You are correct.  I added driving skill to a babysitter and invited it over.  It went home in a jalopy.  I remember seeing them driving in the past but that was before Generations added the driving skill.

On another issue, when HighFidelityPlantGrowth is enabled (for advancing inactive lots I assume), havestables in community garden remain static at 5:00 am.  I had to disable this to see any changes to my garden.

One curiosity question.   Did you change the chair finder protocol when Pets came out?  Before Pets, my sims would go to a random chair in the same room as the bookshelf in the library.  Now, they always go to the closest one.

Anyway, thanks for fixing the motor pool.

This is some manner of unusual EAxis Fail that gets propagated up because AwesomeMod replaced one of the core functions to fix a timer poll issue. There's really no clear explanation why that particular error happens since the code it happens is identical to the EAxis version, and presumably the EAxis version just kind of eats it and hides it from the user completely rather than catching or passing it along.

On another issue, when HighFidelityPlantGrowth is enabled (for advancing inactive lots I assume), havestables in community garden remain static at 5:00 am.  I had to disable this to see any changes to my garden.
The normal game uses very abbreviated rules for plant growth on inactive lots, basically completely ignoring the usual rules of plant growth that your own plants follow. Instead, a plant will just have a random chance of advancing one growth stage until they reach harvest stage, then will flip back and forth between harvest and full growth. High Fidelity Plant Growth removes this behavior: All plants will grow according to the same rules as home plants, so there will not always be a change every night. Non-active-lot plants, however, will still not require watering/weeding, as otherwise they'd all die because no sims are actually managing them.

I'm having a problem with AwesomeMod and build/buy mode. Whenever I enter build/buy, I get a circular loading icon. I can't switch out of the mode once I'm in it, the only way for me to exit is to force quit the game. I'm playing on Windows 7.

I have all expansion and stuff packs installed through Showtime. The last few nights I've been trying to troubleshoot but I've had no luck yet. I used the web tool to change the AwesomeMod config settings to get rid of anything that affects build/buy mode to no avail.

My game is updated through patch 1.34 as required for AwesomeMod.

Is there anything I'm missing? Thanks!!

After installing the Diesel SP and updating to the newest patch version, Awesomemod is no longer disabling the check for disc feature embedded in the game. Completely updated version of AM with a brand new config. Also, before you ask; yes, the option is ticked properly in the config file. I double checked that just to be sure.
Also, it isn't a case of tight pants. I moved all my mods to my desktop and tried with only Awesomemod and the config file in my mods directory (and the resource.cfg of course.) Still doesn't work.

I have legit installs of basegame and all EP/SP. Mine are all registered with Origin, and even the 'Launch from Origin' option won't allow me to launch sans-disc. My patch level is 1.36.45.017017
If it matters at all, I have all the arr'd store content, properly decrapped and installed via Launcher.

Have anyone else has any problems at all regarding the disc-check? I'm aware I could just put the disc in, or mount it on a digital drive but that seems quite the hassle when Awesomemod is supposed to disable the disc-check anyway.

ETA: Just had a brilliant flash and decided to check my resource.cfg, in case it might be the culprit (I had downloaded a fresh one, just to be on the safe side.) Turns out that it was useless; however I have since fixed my resource.cfg and I still cannot get the disc-check to stop. Just thought I'd heads up; it's not the resource.cfg file.

I've tried them all, actually. From Launcher, from .exe, and I even did the insane and reinstalled origin to attempt to launch from it sans-disc.
If it's working for you and you're freshly patched then I probably just borked my game somehow. I already tried sans-cc, but I will try culling and see if that helps any.

I know someone a bit back mentioned the same thing, so we might have a related problem. I'll see if I can find the post and edit with the info.

Sorry to march in here, but i've been having a problem for the past few days and the problem is AM. Because when I remove it, the problem is solved.
The problem I'm having is with relationships. I have an engaged couple (through CAS) but they can't interact romantically. They turn each other down every time i try. While their bar is set at 100. So that shouldn't be a problem. The strangest thing is that last week I uninstalled the sims 3 and the expansions i had and re-installed them. Before re-installing(which i did for another cause) i had the same version of AM and i didn't have any issues. Now, i have exactly the same version of AM and the sims 3(expansions Generations, ambitions, pets, showtime.)(updated fully) and i'm having this issue. Also, neither of my other mods have changed, all the same. (all compatible with the current version) So i really don't understand what the problem is and i'm not nearly good enough with computers to figure out. So, if you could help me out, one way or the other, that would be very very appreciated. Also, I'm Dutch, so please forgive me for any serious grammar mistakes.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: wizard_merlin on 2012 August 14, 19:40:37
No problems here with romantic relations.  Do you have the latest version of AM? Have you tried removing all other mods and just leaving AM?  This sounds like a tight pants issue, rather than an AM issue.

Post by: J. M. Pescado on 2012 August 15, 03:37:20
I can't say I've seen that problem before. Have you tried running the usual checks like "fixall" and whatnot? Are you sure you're not just pushing it too fast or while sims are in a cranky mood? The act of removing a mod can cause a reset that restores all motives, resulting in the appearance that removing a mod somehow "fixes" it.

I can confirm that the feature is working as intended in my game. I cannot launch from the Launcher as it still asks for a disk but can launch the game with no issues direclty from the .exe, or in my case, a shortcut to the .exe.

So far nothing I've done has stopped it. I tried running with only awesomemod, so I'm fairly convinced it's not tightpants but simply my install being a dick. It's been giving me attitude since I installed Diesel.
I also pared down my CC, just in case it was simply too clogged to work properly. It's amazing how much 5gigs of crap can clog up Sims.
I have a temporary "fix" by installing the nraas NoDisc mod in conjunction with awesomemod. I can now launch from .exe with no DiscCheck.
Oddly enough, the nraas NoDisc alone doesn't work either, so that is nifty. Tried that just for shits and giggles.
I'm hoping that once Supernatural comes out I can installed it, patch, and download a patch-compatible awesomemod and it'll go away and leave me be, but until then this seems to be working.
 Thanks for replying though, it's good to know it isn't affecting other gamers. Means the issue is somewhere in my game where I can fix it.

I managed to get the 1.38 test version of Awesome Mod, and things worked at first.  Sent my computer genius sim to hack on his computer at night (roughly 11pm).  As the game was approaching 7am, when hacking is no longer allowed, I had a CTD with no error message other that the generic Win7 one.  Not sure if this was because I had just told my sim to go potty or because the time hit 7am.

EDIT:
Tried again, and this time I did not crash at 7am, and was able to go potty.  But when I then tried to use the shower, I had a CTD.

BTW, I'm using the version of AwesomeMod with a time date stamp of  ‎September ‎01, ‎2012, ‏‎4:09:08 AM.

OK, so I did the update to 1.38 and THEN I grabbed a new Awsome.Zip, assuming that the version that I downloaded would be more Awsome than EA.  But 'twasen't. So now I am without any awsomeness at all. Then I see that Vitaee (quote above) has more awsomeness. Read the hint located below. Downloaded your test. So I am no longer in the same position as Oliver Twist of begging: "Please, Sir, I want some more."
Alternatively, how can I back out the 1.38 update and revert to my previously awsome status? Do not want to anymore. Some Awsomeness >> Awsomelessness

Sent my genius sim to the library at about 9am game time.  Arrived at front steps without issue.  Clicked on an upstairs computer to have him play chess.  He made it up the stairs, and looked like he was about to pull the chair back when I had a CTD.  AM was the only thing in my mods folder.

I've noticed the fun motive decaying while sims sleep.  Selling objects in a sim's inventory seems buggy; I spawned a random selection of rocks/gems/metals, and after collecting them and selling them, each object would appear on the ground near the sim.  Selling the object a second time by dragging from the ground as opposed to dragging from the inventory worked. 

Not sure if this falls under bug or feature, but using the gem cutting object on tiberium produced some tiberium dust, and each tiberium dust pile spawned the large spire after a period of hours.  My sim's net worth increased by 280,000 in the space of a day.

Would this be an update to the September 1, 2012, EA update, and if so, where could I find it?  Because I just got the Sims 3 w/ Pets (I know, I know, I'm waaaay behind) and all the other awesome mods I've found do not work with the current patch (won't even open the game), which I had no choice in adding since it wouldn't let me install without the darned thing.  Having tried the vanilla, non-cheat version of Sims3 (hated it, takes way too long to do anything),  I need awesome.

I've noticed the fun motive decaying while sims sleep.  Selling objects in a sim's inventory seems buggy; I spawned a random selection of rocks/gems/metals, and after collecting them and selling them, each object would appear on the ground near the sim.  Selling the object a second time by dragging from the ground as opposed to dragging from the inventory worked. 

Not sure if this falls under bug or feature, but using the gem cutting object on tiberium produced some tiberium dust, and each tiberium dust pile spawned the large spire after a period of hours.  My sim's net worth increased by 280,000 in the space of a day.

I'm led to believe that this isn't an issue with AM. Yesterday, after installing my shiny new EP (Supernatural - let's go ahead and say that I have alL EPs and SPs), I played a completely vanilla game. While having a dog sniff out collectables, I'd sell them as he found them. They would pop back out on the ground. Happened with my sim's inventory as well.

Also, while this is being mentioned, I'll also say that when I have my sim get a metal smelted or a gem cut, he snaps away from the mail box as if he's been reset, just after he puts the package in the mailbox.

I assume these are EA bugs and glitches that should hopefully be fixed with the next patch.

I just updated everything and one thing I noticed was that the map tags for my sacred households are not visible unless my sim knows them, or is their friend.  The map tags previously always showed for sacred households.  Can someone confirm if it is just my game or a general change/issue?

No AM here yet either, and I'm seeing a pretty consistent and replicable issue when I try to direct use of an elixir while it's in a sims inventory, I first noticed it with the Invigorating Elixir. They seem able to autonomously use it with no problem, but my clicking on it while in inventory results in it a noticeable wait before the menu opens up. All action stops and the game freezes for a few seconds, although music keeps playing and little notes still float in the air. I can drag them out of inventory and use them without problem while they are sitting on a table or something. It's always possible it's my copy of Supernatural, so I was hesitant to mention it until I saw similar issues. I am expecting a new copy, and therefor a new install by tomorrow. Although if it's more then me, it looks easily tracked down.

This is not so much an AwesomeMod bug report as it is an AwesomeSite bug report.  I received the alert informing me my version of AwesomeMod would expire, which made me very happy as I assumed it meant I could update to 1.38/SN.  I assume this because generally, a new version of AwesomeMod is specific to the newest patch from EA and I better update or be trampled.

However, when I updated to SN and downloaded AwesomeMod, the version was last updated August 03, 2012, and is not compatible with 1.38/SN.  In searching MATY to find what dumbassery I had committed, I found that there is a test version, but it is not widely publicly available (that is to say, I assume that's not the version I should be downloading and installing).  

I figure either: a) I assumed incorrectly that the 'update now!' message meant that AwesomeMod was now updated for 1.38/SN (Edit: ding ding ding!) -or- b) The new version of AwesomeMod isn't actually posted yet.

Of course, there's still c) I'm an idiot... but I really did search my ass off, cleared out all my old versions of Awesome, downloaded from all three mirrors, and finally am staring at http://www.moreawesomethanyou.com/ts3/hax/ and see that its timestamp is indeed Aug 03, so I think I did as much as I could do before I actually posted.  In any case, I am now in a sad state of running without AwesomeMod and would like to know if it's a/b or c that's going on here.

Edited to update where I went wrong:  I assumed, based on the coincidental timing of past expiration dates, that AM phoned home enough to get the memo when a new version was released, and that if I got an expiration notice, there was in fact a new version available for me to download.  That appears to be the incorrect assumption that led to this post, so I'm set to sit pretty till the non-test 1.38 is released.  Thanks!

Awesomemod expires because it's always being updated and has an expiration date, not because your AM from Aug. 3rd magically knows that a new AM is out.  There is a test version out that is compatible with 1.38 but if you can't find it then you shouldn't be using it. Wait till the official 1.38 AM is released.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: joolie on 2012 September 06, 18:59:09
I see I have created a misunderstanding:

I am not asking where the test version is, but thank you for the hint.  I spotted the download link for the test version (I did not repost it because as jezzer pointed out, it's not widely publicly available for a reason).  I only posted the current link to the current AM download to reference from where I was getting my timestamp info.

I assumed that the expiration notice was telling me that the new, non-test version of AM was available for download.

If that is the incorrect assumption, my answer has been given and I will wait for the update to be posted in the non-test form.

ETA: Upon re-reading kissing_toast's post:  In the past, my version of AM has only expired when a new one has been released. From that, I supposed that AM actually phoned home enough to get the memo that a new version was available, not that AM was psychic.  It seems that is where I am failing, so I will go back to sitting quietly and waiting...and marveling at how coincidental it's been that AM always expires when EA puts out a major patch and AM is updated.  (Seriously, if that's coincidence, I really am marveling and not sarcastic.)

STEEL BLADDER NOT WORKING

I have a sim with the Steel Bladder lifetime reward.  I know AM reduces the effectiveness of this reward, but with the latest AM patch, it's having no effect at all.  Specifically, when floating the mouse over the need meter, a sim without Stell Bladder has their bladder need decaying at about -13 per hour.  With Steel Bladder, my other sim is also decaying at -13 per hour.  Reloaded a save without AM active, my sim with Steel Bladder has their bladder need perma locked at full, and my other sim's bladder is decaying at what seems normal (can't get exact number of course). 

Can't say for sure, but I think that before, when I had Steel Bladder without AM, there would be no decay.  But now, I get the little red arrow, indicating some decay, but the green bar is constantly filling.  I THINK I see the green bar twitching between nearly full and completely full.  Just speculation on my part, but it seems as if EA went from Steel Bladder setting bladder decay to 0, and now has Steel Bladder not affect the decay rate, but manually resetting the bladder to full every few seconds.  But then again, this last paragraph could just be me hallucinating.

But regardless, with all patches and latest AM, Steel Bladder is having no effect at all.

Updated with latest test awesome mod, and this version seemed to give me a large influx of zombies.  At all times of day and night all over the place, I had a zombie party at my sims house.  Some kind zombie brought a boom box so they could dance and it was like a flash back to the thriller days.  I wasn't that crazy about the thriller/M. Jackson thing in 83, and to see it on my sims lot gave me flashes of 8th grade dances where every boy in the grade thought they could dance like M. Jackson.  Which, until he won one of those music awards and spoke, no one really liked M. Jackson in the same way.  Anyway, before this test version, didn't have the hoards of zombies, which at first was kind of cute, but the moaning and not doing much in the way of game play is just plain annoying to me now.  Just wondering if anyone else is having the same thing, or am I just being a zombie hater.  No other mods are in my game, just fyi.  On the other hand all other commands are working that I had a problem with on the last version.

I had a similar issue. With AM and my other mods (no other core,mind you), it would freeze on loading neighborhoods. With AM alone, it loaded just. With my other mods (some I find as awesome as AM, and wont live without), but no AM, it loaded just fine. I dont seem to have an other issues. I am using the same mods as before the latest patch/ep, and they played nice together before.

If this is a patch fail/mismatch issue, how does one fix that? (I know y'all aren't here to handhold noobs like me, but a point in the right direction would be appreciated.)

As far as I know, I'm fully patched. Installed Supernatural, ran the launcher, installed any patches that came up... which I think was none. (Had to patch before it let me install Supernatural.) So, I'm pretty sure I'm good there. Then closed the launcher, and used basbas' AwesomeMod Updater to install the current test version, which it usually yells at me if the versions aren't the same.

I have noticed this same issue with Steel Bladder as well. I have motiveperkrebalance set to false for now.

Also, it appears that the "Walk here as..." interaction provided by the Dreamer's Costume Chest (dress/walk as astronaut, prince/ss, tyrannosaurus) from Generations is overridden by the "default" AM go-here style sprint. The separate menu option is still available when the child is in their respective costumes, but the walking animations are never processed. I have made long and short distance attempts as well has pausing immediately after the order is queued and selecting the "Walk" option instead of the default, but the child sim only sprints to their destination.

edit: Running all expansions, patched to 1.38, AM timestamp 9-5:0115

Isn't it 56 days or something like that? I know there is a tag in the XML that states BuidLifeDays... I set it to 560 when I did not want to update from 1.33 until I received all of the other EPs (worthless ass Katy Perry + lame ass Diesel + disappointing Supernatural...)

This is exactly my case. All patches, Supernatural installed, no other CC -outside EA store items, which are not exactly CC-, last TEST version installed through AWSmod updater. Neighbourhoods don't load fully, they freeze at 99%. That is, the loading circle continues to go round, the game tips continue to appear one after the other, but it can go on like this forever. At least, for over 30 minutes last time, until I get bored and stop TS3 running.

Nothing but store stuff here too, no AM yet. I had the same with the boombox happen, they all danced badly on my sims lawn. After nothing but the terrible influx of zombies, that scene was a briefly amusing diversion. EA is probably considering the ridiculous zombie swarming as a "feature".

Interesting problem I can't seem to find a common denominator to. Random children sent to boarding school both a) don't go and b) can't go to regular school. You can still control them in-game, but they never go to school. At first I thought I was because I tried to send two on the same day, but on one occasion splitting them up and trying to do one one day and the other after the first one had left, I discovered it's one specific sim that won't go. Not sure what this is tied to but it's happened to me twice now.

Wiz, are you SURE its working?? I assumed mine was working because the unlocked want was disappearing when I fulfilled them, but I was NOT getting the floaty with the point value nor did my lifetime points advance.  To be sure of this, wait till you have an easily filled unlocked want of say 100 pts (like kissing your wife).  If your current lifetime point total is at 12350, and you then kiss your wife, does your total then go up to 12450, or is at less than that.  Making this judgment just because the unlocked want poofs does not mean it's being fulfilled.  You have to check your point total before and afterwards to make sure.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread

That is correct. Just tested it as I thought they were being fulfilled as well. The unlocked wish disappears, but you are not awarded for having fulfilled it.

Next time I play, I will double check and see if the value is being added right, although I could have sworn I saw the numbers floating off, but could be mistaken as I don't tend to pay that much attention to those details as they get mundane after a while.  Will let you know what I find.

I've had very intermittent CTD issues.  After about a week of game time each occurrence, I've had a CTD 3 separate times.  Reloaded from either a save or autosave, and game progresses beyond the previous crash point without issue.  I suspect a memory leak issue of some sort, but haven't been specifically watching for that.  Oddly enough, the CTD didn't start occurring until after my sim got married.  You don't suppose the game is trying to tell me something??

This
2 - Awesome adds an "Eat" action to honey jars and Sims will then autonomously eat instead of drink them
3 - I think it was Awesome that added a value to the "Well Rested" moodlet for sleeping bags (+25 (?)). This moodlet is now without a value

Not sure if bug or feature, but there seems to be a collective cap limit on some potions.

This could be an EA bug in my game, but suddenly sims cannot use the elevators in public buildings in Bridgeport (meaning the lounges/bars). House elevators work just fine.

2 - Awesome adds an "Eat" action to honey jars and Sims will then autonomously eat instead of drink them

[/quote]

nah - that isn't awesome.  up until end of this week I've been playing completely awesomless and sims drink honey whenever they get in the slightest bit hungry.  It doesn't occur to them to eat anything else if they have honey in their inventory either.  Gives them a happy moodlet, but perversely does almost nothing to fill their hunger bar.  And since it doesn't actually sate them,they keep eating jar after jar after jar if you don't catch them....Seems just another annoyance EAxis just had to put in.

On the real problem front:  I do have the psychic helicopter police too. Drives me insane - they catch my teen 100% of the time when she's out after midnight.  Just saw something new too - they now have police in the vacation worlds too (certainly don't remember ever having seen that before) - still not to pick you up at midnight, but when you egg someone else's house they sure are there in a jiffy.

I'm guessing here, as I am still playing Awesomeless at the moment, but I think you have misunderstood. I believe the OP is saying that Sims EAT the JAR instead of drinking FROM it.

I've got a sim in the Ghost Hunter profession.  When she goes on the missions where she's supposed to use the ghost scanner, I get the "room is suddenly incredibly cold" message but no ghost appears.  Further attempts to scan that room result in nothing, and there are no other actions my sim can take.

Removed all hacks other than AM, yadda yadda.  I have seen a bunch of people bitching about this problem on the BBS and other forums recently, so it may be EAxian.

Neither can I switch families with ctrl click, I must go into Edit town to do so.

I use Overwatch, Master controller, Relativity and a bunch of xml mods from Twoftmama, none of them should conflict.

I haven't had a problem with changing households, although I haven't tried, and usually don't use the ctrl right click to initiate the change, but just select the option to select sim or household. No problem.

The attitude that nothing SHOULD conflict rather than verifying that they don't is the biggest fucking problem with testing.  Remove ALL the other fucking mods and see what happens.

My sims cannot sleep in their beds.. they can only relax on it. When I click them to sleep, they go to the bed and then the action is cancelled. I've got AM 1.38 and Supernatural.

My sims sleep just fine, it sounds like a personal problem.  Try removing, or updating your other mods and checking again, even try replacing the beds.

4 in the household, I tried with 2, the animation when they go to the bed and relax is missing, they just flick to the bed. I tried resetSim, replacing bed, removing custom content and then I posted here. I removed everything but AM. I'm going to try new stuff like removing all user files.

I noticed FulfillWantsWithoutLocking is not working for me also. I double-checked and confirmed it's set as True.

I didn't used the test version but the one publicly available, so I never thought I was in any test conditions. Removed all my mods, the problems are still there. Cannot make sacred, cannot switch household and cannot follow on the radar.

While testing one of my family ended up with 3 horses, funny, I can't tell why (SP is off), maybe it's EA's fault.

If it helps I have EA Story Progression on off, aging on epic (800 days) and TS2 aging enabled via AM config file.
I can confirm from a vanilla game with only Awesome that radar doesn't work and that making a household sacred only shows in Map View if my household happens to know the people, but I can switch households with ctrl-click just fine. And the horses might have been caused by the neighbourhood pet adoption system that works independently from SP.

Awesome Build 09/04/2012 22:41:42, game is vanilla with all EPs, all SPs up to MasterSuite and only Awesome:
Some of the configurable options don't seem to work. Those that I noticed are PlantOnAnyLot and NoBabyDisintegration. Babies and toddlers hibernate as soon as all teens and adults are out and planting on community lots is not possible. The option is there but the placement square stays red. I can plant there only with moveobjects on. I tried in two existing saves and in two fesh games in Sunset Valley, Twinbrook and Moonlight Falls, with and without my config file and with a freshly generated config.

I am having the same problem with planting on public lots.

I tried turning PlantOnAnyLot to false.   Then my sims can't get to having a square on the ground, clicking the seed says they can only plant on a home lot.
I turned it back to true, now I get red squares everywhere, perfectly flat terrain, any lot I could find - my sims are on an Adventure in France.

I loaded to a previous save, the same sim could plant at home, but not on a public lot.   The squares are always red on the public lots, but on the home lot the squares are green.

I am on 1.38 and the corresponding awesomemod.

Moveobjects on does fix it - then they get green squares on public lots.

Thanks!

I've had Awesomemod for a few weeks now, and I have liked it apart from one bug. Zombies spawn uncontrollably regardless of full moon and time of day. This I can live with until an update is presented,

however, today upon starting the game awesomemod updated itself (or the game, I don't know) and ever since then I have some total of one minute game time with time rolling before the game crashes. I can build in town mode and buy mode in houses, swap households and do basically everything but play live. I'm figuring something went wrong with the patch, but since I can't see anyone else complaining about it I'm wondering if it's just me.

Thankful for any kind of help!

What the fuck do you mean "you don't know?" How is that something you don't know? The game doesn't update itself and Awesomemod certainly doesn't update itself.

Basically you're stupid. If you bothered to actually look when the most recent awesomemod was released you would realize that it was BEFORE the new EA patch. As awesome is a core mod it will not work with the wrong EA patch. This comes up every time EA patches and if you weren't a total moron you would know this already.

ORLY? Which positive potion moodlets do they remove? I think this occurs partly because of how the moodlet zapper clears moodlets, and each such oddball moodlet that produces no mood still gets zapped even though it is not harmful. I've had to list such moodlets as special cases to ignore when determining whether or not to zap.

Gardening - and Overwatch...

I have never used Overwatch, only barely heard of it.   But it is recommended as a fix for my gardening problem.

My sims planted on a public lot, but as far as I can tell from ea posts from other people it's a problem on home lots as well.

The garden has grown to harvest.  I tell my sim either to Harvest or Tend Garden - either way, they do one plant, get a jump bug.  So it doesn't matter if I tell them to do the next plant, they drop the queue.

Also, it seems like plants are not harvesting again.  Nine days into a trip to China, the garden was planted on day 1 - and the apple, grape, tomato, lettuce only harvested once.  Now they always say they are in harvest mode but no fruit/veggies.

So, is there an awesome fix for this?   Can I run Overwatch with Awesomemod?   Should I just pester EA, which means I have to run cheat free which really blows.   This mod really IS AWESOME.

This is the Awesomemod Bug Report Thread, where you report bugs that are specifically caused by Awesomemod so the FOJ can fix them.  This is not where you report every itty bitty thing that goes wrong in your game and ask Pes to fix it.  Learn how to troubleshoot your game properly to find bad cc.  Also, learn to search; this has already been discussed and moved.

Whenever my sim finished reading a recipe book, at home, she would place it in her personal inventory, no problem there, however after placing the book into the inventory it multiplied and I had two copies of the book.  One in and two out.  A minor glitch which doesn't present a problem as such, but may be worth looking into at some time when you're fiddling around in that part of the code.

Well, the making sacred isn't working for me. Without any other mods in that new Supernatural world Lunar-whatever-it's-called, I can't make even the family I'm playing sacred let alone any others because I can't even see any other lived in house tags in map view. I can click the make sacred but it won't actually do anything, no halo even.  I can switch houses, though, by selecting the + close up on a house and if it happens to be lived in I can click on a house and change to it, but only if I've been to the house first the old fashioned way. Otherwise I cannot select it. Don't know if you can help me as I can see this isn't a widely spread thing. Just thought I'd let you know anyways.

Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: vorpal on 2012 October 17, 10:00:46
Two small issues that I've noticed with the most recent version of AM:
(1) Witch brooms that are "parked" in a stand always show up with the pink derelict vehicle tag and "No driver" in Map View. It does say correctly that these belong to the households in question. The hidden brooms that every witch has by default don't show up it's only those that have been bought in addition. It's most noticeable in Moonlight Falls in the Crumplebottom household as they own three brooms and two cars. I also made them active and assigned to each of them one broom to be their preferred vehicle, but it doesn't make any difference.
(2) NoGhostAging doesn't seem to work. I have it enabled but resident ghosts age normally like any other Sim. I haven't actively played a ghost household yet, but when I switched to the household in Moonlight Falls that contains that yellow transmutation ghost she had lost several days of her life span on my second visit.

Edit: I almost forgot a third issue that I haven't tested vanilla yet, however: before the Supernatural update when two members of a household owned a motorcycle or any other bicycle and I told them to "Go Here With..." they would both mount their vehicles and travel to their destination. Now they either take a taxi together or one uses the motorcycle while the other is left behind and drops the "Go Here" command as soon as the first one arrives. What method of travel they use seems to be random.
Both SmarterVehicleChooser and BetterVehicleDisembark have been disabled in my config file as this had been the exact same behaviour before when they were still enabled. Disabling these had fixed this issue in the past foe me, now it doesn't. But, as I said, I haven't played around with this enough to say anything more specific. I just noticed this change between 1.36 and 1.38.

You are obviously doing something wrong, because the make sacred works just as it did with the older versions.  When you bring up show config, note the date and time of the build and post it, as it seems very much like you are not using the latest version, or you have severely fucked something up.

Time stamp is 09/30/2012  21:33:11  and that is what I'm worried about as this is what I get without any cc in game. Also changing files around I managed to actually fuck things up so that the old framework way stopped working at all, so I only get the AM to work within the new framework.  But the problems remain.

In this case, maybe you should consider doing a reinstall, then start a fresh new game, not an old save, because the sacred functions works perfectly fine.

Playing a single sim in a new game for just over one week with 1.42 and the Nov 2 test version.  I haven't had a crash yet.  One bug that I have observed, which I suspect is EA's, is with meteor rocks.  When a sim is directed to collect one, anything in the queue after gets canceled.  Additionally, meteor rocks can no longer be analyzed; they can only be given as gifts or sold.

With the 1.42 patch and no other content except for the test Awesome mod (which I download just before opening the game) and its config file game immediately crashes in CAS when you click the change traits button when creating a sim.

Installed the 1.42 no other mods, all was going fine for an hour or so.  Sim gave birth and after naming and before choosing traits game crashed.  I have seen a couple others talking about crashing in CAS while choosing traits.  Same problem as them, just a touch different and figured you might need to know.

I encountered a new bug after installing Seasons. Tested with just Awesome & the config (no store content, no hairs, etc) and the bug shows up in both new and old saves. I've also checked to confirm that I'm using the 11/05/2012 7:54 am version of the mod.

NPCs and ghosts cannot be interacted with. The ghost just stays stuck by their graves and NPCs arrive in their cars and then stand uselessly beside them until I force a reset, though sometimes the pizza delivery NPC takes my sims' money and leaves without handing over the pizza. I've tried to have my sims fire/dismiss/chat with the maid but the action always gets cancelled.

This bug doesn't appear in a modless game.

Festival items don't spawn at all if AwesomeMod is running. Also, with ErrorTrap, not a single NPC shows up in game, and story driver goes nuts trying to spawn *any* NPC, got over 76 error messages. Without AwesomeMod NPCs and service sims show up normally.

Post by: vorpal on 2012 November 14, 19:32:08
There are three things that I have noticed since 1.38 and that I have seen again with 1.42 (just the patch, no Seasons yet)

(1) Sims in the music careers lack a display of required instrument skill. The main tab only lists "Mood" and nothing else and the skill journal also has no instrument skill highlighted. The Sim I play has skill points in all instruments but piano is the highest. When he joined the career Piano was listed but after his first promotion the Piano skill requirement disappeared completely. I saw the same then with inactives that were higher up on the ladder.

(2) When ghosts are resurrected with Ambrosia and with AwesomeMod installed their walk styles remain that of ghosts, i.e. they still float. "resetwalkstyle" doesn't do anything and only Buzzler's mod can clear their walkstyles (but it hasn't been updated to 1.42 yet). At first I thought this a glitch in my particular save but I had started a second, vanilla game with 1.42 and there the walkstyle got properly reset with the first ghost. The second ghost that I resurrected in that same game with then AM installed again continued to float.
So, I have four resurrected ghosts that floated after eating Ambrosia in Awesome games and the fifth that didn't float anymore was the only one that ate it without AwesomeMod. Not very conclusive, I know, but it's a bit difficult to test this further in vanilla games.

(3) "dresser", "mirror" and "makeover" are just the default EA commands, aren't they? Because they suffer from the same bug like when doing it via the objects, namely that they change a Sim's age.

If I create a new fambly in CAS, the "disableclothingfilter" command works just fine.  But when I'm playing a fambly and use that command, only custom clothing shows up in CAS.

This has been happening for some time now.  So is it a bug, or is it working as intended?

That sounds like the CustomClothingFilterIsDefault option in the config file, which would be working as intended.

If disableclothingfilter is on, then the game will start with the Custom Clothing Filter on. This is a safety measure: If you don't turn it on, the game will pretty much lock up and die as it tries to load EVERYTHING IN THE UNIVERSE all at once while you fumble for the category you want to reach. This feature therefore allows you to reach the right category you wish to edit without locking up CAS for 5-10 minutes. Trust me on this one. It is for your own good.

They're not default EA commands, but they just invoke the default behavior of the object...and it seems that EAxis managed to put that bug back AGAIN.

I think the excessive combustion rate of Sims is actually an AwesomeMod issue. I have one save that was created vanilla and as soon as I load it with AwesomeMod added an inactive Sim (Marty Keaton in Sunset Valley) will catch fire within a few minutes while at work in the stadium rabbithole. When I load that save without AM nothing happens. I tried this three times and the result was always the same. The only other mod I used was MasterController, which allowed me to search for Sims with certain moodlets.

Up to date patch, Awesomemod, and Seasons.  The seasonal festivals and the weather seem to get... stuck. I'll have snow year-round even though it's summer and the temperature read-out says 75 degrees. I'll go to the park on Leisure Day and still have a haunted house. I can reset-to-current by save-exit-restart, but that gets kind of annoying.

Examining the combustion issue now. Poofs should be testing it now.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: vorpal on 2012 November 18, 11:47:34
AM build 18/11/2012 2:13:07. Loaded the test save. Within several Sim minutes Marty Keaton catches fire and is booted out of the stadium rabbit hole, burning. 4 random Sims start to heat up. When the save loads there are no Sims in the neighbourhood with any temperature related moodlets. Without AM this situation remains as such.
I also noticed that on re-loading that save that sometimes random inactives do not heat up but begin feeling cold.
Here's a link to that save: http://www.mediafire.com/?dwfa50znmrwcjml (Sunset Valley, no cc used, mods are AM, nointro and MasterController)
What I do to reproduce the situation: active Sim is Christopher Steele, standing in his bathroom, I send him to recycle the newspapers and then watch TV. I check the inactives immediately after load-up: no Sims with temperature moodlets. By the time Steele is finished with recycling I check the inactives again: Marty Keaton is on fire and random townies either feel hot or cold. It is dark outside, by the way.

In another save I also found the two festival ground merchants catching fire. These should be immune to temperature effects.

On a related note: while playing with AwesomeMod and Overwatch, Overwatch deleted more than 15,000 cars every day at 3am. With only Overwatch the number went down to some 5,000. I also experienced massive lag when trying to switch households with ctrl-click and maptags only showed up for the area directly covered by my current screen. Moving the camera resulted in missing map tags for the new area and taking several seconds to appear.

I have rather extreme combustion happening pretty much in every world (all EA pre-mades), everyday 5-10 sims are burning no matter what the weather is. Even when it's pouring rain. Non-controllable sims are mostly just standing around even when freewill is maxed. And they won't change to outerwear even when it's freezing cold and snow up to their ears.

I've been playing with Awesomemod for a couple years now.  Love it and have never had any serious issues.  I have Seasons installed and I'm patched all the way up.  AwesomeMod date 11/18/12.  While I was playing I noticed around 10 taxis pulling up and dropping people off on a lot.  I went over to see what was going on and the taxis were dropping off tourist sims from China.  They just kept arriving!  I counted around 60 before I closed the game down.  They were all just standing there facing the same direction starving to death lol.  Strangest thing I've ever seen on the sims.

I've also been having the issue of lots of sims dying from burning to death.

And new issue now...my sims won't sit down in the living room.  When they eat they stand or go outside and when they read they skip the livingroom and go to their beds.  I have tried many different couches and chairs in different areas in the room and have even started a new game and it's the same.

Three out of six of my sims had the overheated moodlet, it was -9 deg. C and they had been outside at the winter festival. They had been playing the festival snowball fight, but the fourth sim did not get the moodlet. Dunno if there's a connection, probably not as other people are experiencing the overheating anywhere in the neighbourhood.

Edit: Sorry, my sims had the sweating profusely moodlet, not the overheating one.

I am having the issue with townies catching on fire as well. So far I have had 17 deaths. This was with the latest awesomemod on the DL page on the 18th. They are always the townie people who are standing idle somewhere in town, so far never NPCs and never my active sims.

They get an overheating moodlet even in the winter. Then they get a sweating profusely moodlet. Some of them I have been able to get my sim to put them out, other times the queue just keeps stopping for putting them out. My last sim died in 37 degree weather.

I gave one sim the immune to fire hidden trait and he still caught on fire. I intervened by making him selected and cancelling all of the moodlets because he was a future husband, but it was in the winter.

Right now I used mastercontroller and gave the whole neighborhood immune to heat lifetime happiness award.

And another bug I found, not with awesomemod, but with the game, the unselected sims do not stop playing horseshoes. Parties and dates pretty much suck because the sims won't stop playing unless I select them and stop them (which ends the date).

Yes, it doesn't happen without AM. I also tried AM with default configs but the bug occurred again.
However I was wrong about one thing, the bug doesn't happen with ghosts too. To sum it up:
The bug doesn't happen with both humans and ghosts. It happens with vampires, fairys and werewolves, I don't have showtime installed so I don't know about genies

There's no more walking fireballs in my game either, which is a huge relief. Thanks JM! Although I second what Martine said above: disableClothingFilter is on but it doesn't work.

Edit:// I noticed another issue: even though Sims 2 style aging is enabled in the Config, a non-active sim died while I was playing with another household. He was an elder who had over a week to live when I played with his household. Day before a note about his death came, there was a pop-up about him going to die soon. I've never had this kind of issues before and I've used the Sims 2 aging since it became an option with AM. Now it looks like it doesn't work. (Using the 19/11 version of AM)

I'm having a pretty big problem with the in-game clock.  Basically, the game will "freeze" in that the game clock, sims, and cars stop moving and the game stops responding to mouse input. However, other animations continue as normal such as Z's over a sleeping sim, rain, or the plumbob rotating over a sim's head, as well as ambient sounds and music.  The clock, sims, etc will then suddenly progress again and any mouse input will get a response after a few seconds.  It'll then run for 5-10 sim minutes, and then the same thing happens again and again in a cycle. 

I saved while the game was acting this way and when I remove awesome mod and reboot, the problem disappears.  However, when I put the mod back in, the problem reappears.  Also, the game experiences these freezes at exactly the same sim time on each reload.

I have a few other mods installed but the same thing happened whether the other mods were present or not.  Also, if I load an older autosave, the game seems to be acting normally (I didn't play to the point in time where the problem starts occurring though).  I have all XPs and SPs installed except Showtime and KP, so I have the patch that came with seasons, and I'm using the 11/19/12 4:10 version of Awesomemod.

Here's a save file where you can observe this:

I am having the same troubles. I enabled this option, and I still have to wait for every single clothing item to load...

Also quick question... When you say "If disableClothingFilter is on, that the game will "Start" with the custom filter on". I was thinking,  disableClothingFilter isn't in the config, and something that has to be typed manually in-game...  So it doesn't last after the game is restarted right? Or did you mean something else, such as after disabling the clothing filter it will immediately turn the custom filter on at the same time?

Either way, whether using disableclothingfilter or turning the custom clothing filter on via config, I never once have seen only custom clothing display.

Title: AM story driver failing to correct EA story driver
Post by: Soltis on 2012 December 09, 20:43:39
As of two days ago, there was an issue with AM where cross-world opportunities were being blocked.

To be more specific, the adventure stage (opportunity) "The Diary of Sin Pah" calls for a sim to "Travel to France"; when the sim arrives, they're supposed to get a few visa points or whatever and a subsequent task to talk to the nectar merchant.

With the EA story driver (or AM) the "Travel to France" stage completes as expected, but the subsequent step fails to appear. If one attempts to forcibly add it (China->EP1_Quest_France1, if I'm not mistaken) with twallan's DebugEnabler, the message "Unable to fulfil requirements for EP1_Quest_France1" appears; trying to add various other China opportunities while in France simply does nothing -- no idea if that's relevant or not.

If one uses twallan's StoryProgression instead of AM or EA, it's possible to progress in the adventure and complete it normally.

Speaking of AM story brokenness, there seems to be a *serious* lack of consideration in AM code for sim traits and relationships; I had a "Good", "Proper" sim, married with an LTR of 100, who was flirting like crazy a while back; another time her spouse was flirting (or being flirted with) several other sims as well, while she was in the room, and, until the "rumour" got around, she didn't appear to notice -- she kept flirting with him in between him flirting with everyone else until that occurred.

While I can see a sim with low LTR or shitty traits (neurotic, diva, evil, etc.) engaging in rampant autonomous infidelity even while having a high LTR value with their spouse, the behaviour I observed is simply stupid -- and I hesitate to imagine what manner of exposure to dog-humping gutter sluts would cause someone to omit basic trait and relationship weighting and/or gating for actions leading to marital infidelity.

How to find out whether your aliens own a UFO:
(I hope it's not against the rules to mention other mods)
1. You need Twallan's MasterController and MasterController Cheats
2. Click on a wall of any empty house
3. nraas -> Master Controller -> Add Sim -> Type of Sim -> Living
4. In the upcoming list find and select all aliens (there were never more than 3 in my worlds).
5. Have a look into their inventories.

No. No vehicles will ever be removed from a sim's inventory, as you (probably) paid for them! However, uninstantiated characters in the game do not have inventory, and any items in the inventory of an NPC that gets unininstantiated will be lost. This isn't an AwesomeMod-specific behavior, this is standard.

As of two days ago, there was an issue with AM where cross-world opportunities were being blocked.

To be more specific, the adventure stage (opportunity) "The Diary of Sin Pah" calls for a sim to "Travel to France"; when the sim arrives, they're supposed to get a few visa points or whatever and a subsequent task to talk to the nectar merchant.

With the EA story driver (or AM) the "Travel to France" stage completes as expected, but the subsequent step fails to appear. If one attempts to forcibly add it (China->EP1_Quest_France1, if I'm not mistaken) with twallan's DebugEnabler, the message "Unable to fulfil requirements for EP1_Quest_France1" appears; trying to add various other China opportunities while in France simply does nothing -- no idea if that's relevant or not

If one uses twallan's StoryProgression instead of AM or EA, it's possible to progress in the adventure and complete it normally.
I don't see why this would be related at ALL. AwesomeMod's story progression is a standalone module that has ZERO influence on Quests. However, I will look into this.

Speaking of AM story brokenness, there seems to be a *serious* lack of consideration in AM code for sim traits and relationships; I had a "Good", "Proper" sim, married with an LTR of 100, who was flirting like crazy a while back; another time her spouse was flirting (or being flirted with) several other sims as well, while she was in the room, and, until the "rumour" got around, she didn't appear to notice -- she kept flirting with him in between him flirting with everyone else until that occurred.
That is not a behavior of Story Progression at all. That seems more like dumb Sim Autonomy at work. Story Progression doesn't manipulate sims that are presently within active viewing of the player: That's not what it's for. It seems to me that you're attributing everything to "Story Progression", when none of the phenomena described are actually part of Story Progression.

Does fixall or towderelicts remove UFOs from the inventory of uninstantiated aliens?
No. No vehicles will ever be removed from a sim's inventory, as you (probably) paid for them! However, uninstantiated characters in the game do not have inventory, and any items in the inventory of an NPC that gets unininstantiated will be lost. This isn't an AwesomeMod-specific behavior, this is standard.
But is it maybe possible that AwesomeMod prevents these UFOs from spawning in the first place? In my first test run of Seasons without Awesome my sim was abducted three times and almost reliably so after collecting space rocks during the night and analysing them straight away. Placing these rocks in the back yard then triggered the alien visits and befriending them and inviting them over resulted in an UFO landing instead of a car arriving. Since then and with AM I haven't had a single abduction in two different games and aliens were driving around in NPC motor pool vehicles and every alien that my sim had asked to move in joined the household empty-handed. I checked "listkills" regularaly during that time and there were never any SpaceCars listed among the kills but my suspicion is that they were never spawned right from the beginning because they are "free" cars in a way.

That's why I said 'fails to fix EA' and not 'AM breaks' -- I believe EA managed to break cross-world quests, probably in 1.42, and StoryProgression does some kind of housekeeping which mitigates the problem.

Using the Potent Personality Adjuster potion, my sim received "Radar Tagged" as one of his 5 new traits.  Any way to prevent this from happening?

Removing the tracking removes the trait, leaving the sim with 4 traits.  Yes, its easy enough to correct with cheats, just wonderin' though.

My sim also received the "Backstabber" trait, also a hidden trait - though I'm not sure the source.

The "Will Die Soon" popup and notification actually has no relationship to whether or not a sim will actually die: Once a sim reaches die-able age, it will die randomly and unpredictably. A popup, therefore, is sort of useless in terms of warning you about this.

I will schedule an investigation into this matter.

I am unable to verify this. Check that the proper option is actually registering as enabled in SetConfig? Nothing there appears to have changed, unless you have a third-party aging controller.

Which reminds me. If my child Sim has a 'snow day' is there any way we can enforce that all child Sims in the hood will? It seems silly that the kids one block over who attend the same school are forced in when mine stays home and has no-one to play with.
In theory, every single School Career work alarm is supposed to handle this. I have no idea why it does not, but I am not sure adding a global set check to every single school for every single school is wise at this point.

I cleared out awesome mod and it seemed to allow randomization without freezing like that (even in supernatural form).  Is that the same for you? I'm not sure if it's conflicting with another mod I have. & Yeah no one really responded to my post so I just started making them as humans.

I have played one save about 3 sim days hoping for my aliens to get their UFOs, but it appears they haven't.  I even tried using debug interactions to force an alien visitation, bought the alien a UFO and put it into his inventory, which he promptly used to leave the lot...and the aliens still have no UFOs in their inventories.  Edit: To clarify, the alien that I bought the UFO looks to have lost it somehow in the intervening days.

I'm not sure how to do that; if it is the "Who Am I?" interaction, this is what the alien shows when he is in-world:

I don't know how to do anything similar to a sim that is only accessible via relationship panel.

In the relationships panel, the alien has the same greyed out look that sims from Foreignia do and when I invited him over to get his stats, he appeared at the ass-end of the map, same place adult sims do when a "free vacation" goes haywire.

I agree that they are frivolous and stupid actions and nothing needs doing. However, to clarify, I didn't mean that they endlessly "Contemplate Surroundings," I meant that they endlessly try to "Contemplate Surroundings" and the queue keeps dropping and popping itself back up. In order to get them out of it, I have to give them some other meaningless chore.

You may have understood it that way anyway; I don't know. I won't whinge about it further, either way.

I am investigating the aging issue, but examining the code reveals no particular reason why this happens, other than perhaps your game having a backlog of aging that it was slowly working through before you turned it on. The cutoff seems quite clear, unless something is now suddenly managing to bypass it. Can you directly observe the aging? Does it happen with only specific ages, such as elders dying, or is it acting as if the setting is being ignored?

When you switch families, do you know what their age was?  If you switched on the day they were due to age up, I believe the queued aging action, which you can't see, will still cause the sim to age at the end of the day, even with TS2 aging, or if you suddenly turn aging off, and you change active households.

I have enabled TS2-style aging a couple of (RL) days ago because I wanted to try a different playing style, and I have noticed that at least 2 children have aged to teens. These are in families that I have never played - they were school friends of my playable child, which is why I noticed. It seems to have happened at the same time as my child aged, but this may be a coincidence -- she's been adopted as a child pretty much as soon as I moved into this new town, so she may simply be sync'd with the other schoolkids.

(I've also had an elder die, but I see that this has already been answered & isn't controlled by aging, so ok.)

Compendium is not working right.

If I transfigure compendium and put a compendium as one of the eight metals going in, it takes all the metals EXCEPT the compendium to increase the value for the output compendium.

I am running the game with no mods at all now, and the compendium is calculated as part of the input (which it is).   So I assume it is an awesomemod bug...


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: J. M. Pescado on 2013 February 03, 05:53:06
Working as intended. Compendium added to more compendium does not count the value of the compendium for compoundment, because otherwise, it takes only about 100 transformations to blow out int64, and math issues will start appearing well before then when you blow out int32. Therefore, ONLY the value of the non-compendium/supernovium metals are increased. Otherwise you've got a huge unlimited money exploit to the point where it will physically bork the game, and only the idiots at EAxis who failed math couldn't see that.

Creating a single item worth several quadrillion is BAD JUJU.

Here and there.  I had only a craptop unable to play Sims, so I was dead for a while.  Now I am reanimated with a pretty nice rig and I can play again!

DEBUG Trigger Alien Abuduction doesn't work. The game freezes for 2 seconds and then goes back to normal with no alien ship or aliens

I noticed that one of my alien visitors arrived for a visitation in a UFO and left in a Sloppy Jalopy.  Checked just now and my aliens appear to have lost their UFOs again.

I'm using the latest AM on a game patched to 1.48 (all SPs & EPs installed except WA, LN, Fast Lane, Katy Perry & Supernatural) and an aweconf.package file generated by the "config for dummies" tool. I have the config set to use Awesome's story progression, but when I check in-game via the showconfig command, it says False next to UseAwesomeStoryDriver. I tried to set it to true manually via setconfig, but received no confirmation popup and the same False notation shows up when I run showconfig after attempting to do so. I also have Nraas' Story Progression installed but have it set to not use his story driver, since I only want his mod for the map tags feature, not the soap-opera-style stories. Kind of desperate to get AM's story mode up and running again since I just realized that no townies have gotten paired up or had kids in the time it's taken my legacy sim to pop out a couple of heirs...meaning there's only 2 other teenagers in town and no under-12s at all other than my sim's daughter. Pretty slim pickings for when they reach marrying age, unfortunately.

Have you tried removing Nrass Story progression?  If I recall correctly, AM automatically turns off AM story Progression, if it detects Nrass Story Progression.

DEBUG Trigger Alien Abuduction doesn't work. The game freezes for 2 seconds and then goes back to normal with no alien ship or aliens

How many times have you tried it?  Last time I used the debug option, it took maybe 3-4 attempts before it worked.  Not sure what the issue was, whether it was missing ships, the time, or something else misbehaving.

I've tried it again and I managed to get it to work twice in a row and then nothing the next sim day when I tried it again. To get it to work the first time, I had to wait till the appropriate time period and get my sim to wait outside. I think I also had to have meteorites somewhere around on in his inventory.

Update:  I removed AM to see if that was causing the issue of no partner, and still none spawned, so it's not AM.  Also, my firefighter met coworkers on his first day, but since then, the firehouse is ALWAYS empty.  No one else ever shows up there.  Is this expected behavior?

Are you sure you have story progression on, within the game? It's got to be on in the first place for the AM story stuff to work, AM SP makes sims actually do things not just in pop ups.

Ah, thanks that makes sense...though it would be nice to be able to enable the AM progression if the Nraas progression mod is installed but disabled, similar to how people used to switch between Indie Stone & AM in-game. I personally find the expanded map tags included with Twallan's SP Extras mod incredibly useful and am loath to give up that functionality. If I could find a standalone mod that provides expanded map tag functionality I'd use that instead, but there doesn't seem to be one out there.

Can you directly observe the aging? Does it happen with only specific ages, such as elders dying, or is it acting as if the setting is being ignored?

In my case it stopped working after patch 1.39.
Same here. It was that bloody patch that brought the plague in my game and messed with TS2 aging feature of AM.

Expansion and Stuff packs installed: WA, Late Night, Ambitions, High-End Loft stuff, Town Life Stuff, Generations, Seasons.
Mods installed:  AM and Twallan's: Error Trap, Master Controller, Overwatch, Woohooer, Portrait Panel.
Running the latest patch and all mods updated to their latest version.

Pescado,
It doesn't happen with specific ages, but rather as if the setting is not present at all. I run tests in freshly-created world and new Sims with the same results. The game notifies me of Sims' birthdays and also asks me to choose a trait, if said Sim lives in a household marked as "Sacred".

You need the in game story progression option enabled for AM story progression to work.  With story progression disabled might explain why the game isn't generating the extra sims for you.

Working as intended. Compendium added to more compendium does not count the value of the compendium for compoundment, because otherwise, it takes only about 100 transformations to blow out int64, and math issues will start appearing well before then when you blow out int32. Therefore, ONLY the value of the non-compendium/supernovium metals are increased. Otherwise you've got a huge unlimited money exploit to the point where it will physically bork the game, and only the idiots at EAxis who failed math couldn't see that.

Creating a single item worth several quadrillion is BAD JUJU.

I wonder if you could let this be OUR decision, in the configuration, as to how we want compendium to calculate, since clearly the game does use ALL the input ingots (compendium and supernovium no exception) to calculate the value of the output when you run with no mods at all.

I mean, I was having my sims spend forever transfiguring, now I have to decide when to stop being greedy and just sell the compendium already, before the bank breaks.   I have sold a 22 million compendium and have another 67 million one sitting around, and I don't think they are really going to break the math, I can always just start another piece....

I'm not sure if this is a bug or a feature, but I've noticed that FulfillWantsWithoutLocking also fulfils Lifetime Wishes.  It's particularily troublesome with "Living in the Lap of Luxury", "The Perfect Garden", "Presenting the Perfect Private Aquarium", "Bottomless Nectar Cellar" and those kinds of wishes where no effort is required if you just happen to be born into the right kind of family.  It seems a bit cheaty to me, I never let sims pick those lifetime wishes unless they can do them from scratch.

The problem then is that Nancy will be posting and screaming everywhere how AM broke her game when it does implode, and want Pescado to fix it.

I'm not sure if this is a bug or a feature, but I've noticed that FulfillWantsWithoutLocking also fulfils Lifetime Wishes.

Are you saying that the LTWs are being completed before they are being selected and locked?  Because so far, I have not seen that happen unless I actually select the LTW, at which time, if all conditions are met, they immediately fulfill the wish.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: Gwill on 2013 February 16, 23:32:46
Yes, they are being fulfilled without being locked.  I just had a child complete something that must have been life of luxury when I wasn't looking.
She got the points for it, but the LTW slot stayed open.  I've selected a new LTW and am waiting to see what will happen when that's fulfilled.  If I remember correctly from last time it just changed the badge to completed without awarding any points.

Edit: Picking a new LTW made it show as completed within a few minutes, even though it isn't.  No extra points given.
She now appears to have completed "Master of the Arts", despite having a guitar skill of 3 and art of 5.

Hi there,

I recently patched to version 15.0 for sims 3 and downloaded test version 1.5 of AM accordingly. Every time I tried to split up a household or move a sim out the game crashed to desktop. I removed all CC, still crashed. Removed AM, working fine again, re-installed CC (without AM) and game still worked. Re-downloaded and installed test version of AM and game crashed when I tried to split up household.

I have all the right specs, enough free space, etc. It's definitely AM that's affecting my game, so thought I should post here. I'm running a mac, so not sure if the same issue would happen to a pc-user.

Yes, the recurrence of this issue is a known deep-engine glitch.  It occurs for no logical reason, simply because some code which doesn't do anything (the original EAxian junk) is left there, even though it shouldn't ever be accessed. Try it now.

The only reason you could get this error is if, for some reason, the skill data for Athletic is missing. I cannot think of any logical reason why this error would occur, since it is happening inside of a no-argument EAxian function call. Something is wrong with your game install.

The move crash did not occur for me in the latest version (It had in previous versions). So... It looks like that's fixed.

However, attempts to make a clay sculpture resulted in a strange, glowing red cube that was visible through all solid surfaces and, upon completion, was called a '****FailureObject'. Highlighting it caused it to be referred to as 'Missing Object Resource Instance 319e4f1d:00000000:0000000000000000 -'.

I am admittedly uncertain as to whether this is a bug with the mod or my own fault somehow, but it had not occurred before this latest test build. Issue occurred after attempting to move and cancelling, so it is not impossible that it is related to the move issue somehow.

AwesomeMod and anything else that happened to be installed by Basbas' updater are the only mods that I use, for reference. Ambitions and World Adventures EPs installed. A couple bits of store content.

Edit: Selling the 'sculpture' and starting a new one did not produce another ominous red cube, so it's a specific object having issues. Or maybe just update weirdness or something. I don't know.

I just got a new computer and after installing everything, I loaded the Sims to see if it was working. I did not have awesome mod in at that time. I had the sculpture problem too. I think it is an EA problem, not an awesome problem. Not sure what is happening. I transferred over my entire Sims 3 folder from my other computer, so I should not be missing any content; however, not sure if it patched perfectly. I have to check that out.

New Awesomemod is causing my game to crash. It happens every morning right at 6:26AM. I can't get past that point with AM installed. If I remove it then all is fine. Hopefully some core events are scheduled around that time to help narrow it down. The crash address is the same each time so it's not random.

Now my game has problems with having kittens. It crashed twice in the row when the birth started; as I had gone to a pre-conception save the second time and had the cats have another go at it, the two births were at different times, so I doubt it was anything else happening at the same time. The birth worked without issue when I removed AM; it was a save made with an already pregnant cat that had previously crashed, too.

Some of the confusion may be coming from the fact that there is still an older test version in the test folder on the alpha.moreawesomethanyou.com site.  I think some people may be downloading that and assuming it's the latest version.


That was not the case with me. I downloaded from here (http://www.moreawesomethanyou.com/ts3/). However, I downloaded AM again today (from the Shiny! thread), and the game is no longer whining about it being outdated. Either the FOJ fixed the problem, or it was PEBKAC all along.

The ones that say "alpha" and "gamma" in them.

Just wanted to add I got mine from the alpha mirror so it's not out dated. I removed all other mods and it still crashes every time at the same time. If I reset the world then it crashes at 6:32AM. Something is firing that takes it down. Possibly the carpool or could be one of my inactives attempting to give birth if such is causing crashing.

For those who are playing without issues: Are you using the AM config file too?
I ask because I tried to play with AM installed and my Sims couldn't leave work (one was at work the other was playing a concert). I removed AM and the AM config file, and it seemed to work fine. I sent one Sim off to Uni to check it out, and when he returned I saved and tried AM again, without issue, but I haven't tried the config file yet.

I tested it with University as well, but found that Awesome story progression pushed University world students into regular careers they shouldn't have and also caused some to quit their Uni careers.  The students with non-university world jobs then failed to perform those jobs.  I have had one Awesome error picked up by Error Trap regarding university rabbitholes (I'll post it later if needed).  So no, it isn't working without issue for the new expansion, as would be expected if it has not actually been updated for UL.

I haven't paid much attention, but I think I'm experiencing that, too. I'll have to watch the "Inform on Story Action" notifications a bit closer to verify.

Parties are broken. When a Sim gets invited and accepts, I still get notifications about when it starts, but there's no indicator on the map, and if I send her to the location, there's no party. Then, later on, I get a notification that she missed the party. I'm betting this all has to do with the new, improved smartphone somehow conflicting with AM.

I'm also unable to "Propose Going Steady," at least in University town, but this might be due to the "Commitment Issues" trait or the fact that my Sim has several boyfriends already, as opposed to AM.

I tested the game with no mods. Some parties (kegger, bonfire) need confirmation via text message, the party scenario only starts *after* receiving the text. The notification telling you missed it comes from a phone call, as usual.

I got a weird error, though. With AM installed my sim was hanging out at the sorority after a kegger party, near the garage door. The party already ended, so I didn't get kicked out of the lot, but when the game deleted the keg by the pool I got a flagrant system error.

Might be a bit late to the party here but I had a sim about to graduate from university and this popped up twice. http://oi50.tinypic.com/33louqg.jpg (http://oi50.tinypic.com/33louqg.jpg)
When the sim graduated and the "going home" screen loaded, it took me back to the university map without my sim instead of going to my sim's home world.
Will the disabled story progression fix this or is this a different problem?


Update: I updated my awesomemod and reloaded my save from before the error message and did not have the issue this time.

Actually, I think that the only thing missing is the map indicator. My sim had a party thrown in fraternity he lived in, so he basically had to attend. It fulfilled his wish to attend a party and I later got the "thanks for coming to my party" notification. I'm pretty sure there were some more people than just residents, though even if there weren't any it wouldn't say much, as NPC parties are kind of lame anyway and host is frequently the only sim present. It's been like that since Late Night, at least for me.

I didn't even think about it till I read this, but I've got this problem too.  I wasn't sure if that was just something they can't do in University so after my sim graduated, she went home and I invited her boyfriend over.  Still couldn't go steady/propose marriage, no matter how high the relationship was, or how extremely irresistible she was.  She doesn't have any type of relationship trait.  She DID have a boyfriend before she left for college, but broke up before she left.

I haven't had any problems with parties (besides there being freaking tons of them) and the graduation went fine as well.

Edit: Upon further experimentation, this was something wrong in that particular save.  I started a new neighborhood and haven't had any relationship issues, and books are all working normally as well.

I was able to propose going steady with a sim I was playing and one of the roommates that moved into the dorm. It took a few days and a bunch of conversations, making out, etc. after they were romantic interests, but it eventually showed up.

Haven't seen any further reports of this issue, and don't have Uni yet so would not be able to reproduce at this time. Is it reproducible, or random? Is it Main-Hood, or Uni-Hood?

I haven't had any crashes of this sort since, although I had a few household population changes (which was when it happened, usually). I'm currently playing a new game with a Sim in a university world without any issues at all, which is rather unexpected.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: PrinJess on 2013 March 09, 12:33:30
The crash happens in an old save I had before I updated to 1.50. The only thing I remember before it crashed was the trick-or-treaters outside...and it's Spring. Two hours later it goes black screen and crashes. This all happens in Lucky Palms. I haven't even gotten to the potential problems I'd have in a Uni World.

I tried both resetsim and resetworld but it changed nothing. I guess my save is forever corrupted at this point.

Not sure if you even want University-related things reported at this stage, but my game is otherwise running fine with the most current AM and University, so...

The Sim Finder App (which is available once one has raised Social Networking a bit) allows searching by, among other things, traits, and the AM hidden traits are among the searchable ones. Reporting this in case it is not intended behaviour.

It occurred right when I upgraded to 1.50 and is a main hood Sunset Valley crash. It cannot be averted by resetworld, that just delays it a few sim seconds. I haven't figured out the exact cause. The pre-uni save file is below if you think it will help any. It starts at 4:45AM and the crash occurs every time at 6:26AM. Resetworld delays it to 6:32AM. It might a inactive giving birth causing it, I'm not entirely sure though. The game goes past that point just fine with AM out of the mods folder.

Okay, I've done more digging and I can confirm the crash is due to a dog trying to give birth. I installed Twallan's MasterController to locate the pregnant sims. In that save two female humans and one dog are pregnant. With the removal of AM at 6:26AM when the crash was occurring the dog was no longer listed as pregnant and two new puppies were in the population demographics.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: PrinJess on 2013 March 12, 15:05:00
So once the female dog had puppies the game was no longer crashing for you? Because I have one dog who is currently pregnant. I'll let time pass until she gives birth and I'll try to put AM back in.


Title: Re: AwesomeMod Bug Report Thread
Post by: Chain_Reaction on 2013 March 13, 01:37:45
That is correct. It's the same issue Nienor reported with having kittens. I wasn't aware I had a dog in the neighborhood pregnant until I installed MasterController. Any animal attempting to give birth immediately takes you to your desktop with AM installed.

I've found a Supreme Commander problem: If a witch Sim has a cat or small animal in the household, they get an "Animal Familiar" moodlet, which appears coloured as neutral in spite of giving a mood bonus. My witch on Supreme commander keeps removing it with the moodlet manager. It is removable, but it comes back immediately, so that leads to looping.

Trying to use awesomemod in a custom world.  Multiple beta tests without any mods went smoothly, so I decided to put in awesomemod.  Less than a minute into game I start getting the flagrant errors.
Flagrant System Error: http://www.zeppyster.com/Images/Mekare/flag1.jpg

Seem to get this repeatedly and randomly, i'm guessing it is not directly related to my individual sim's actions (it goes off reguardless of what I'm doing, even just standing around).
Needless to say, turning off story progression makes it stop, but I'd like to get it working normally.  :)
Trouble is it only happens in this custom world, even in brand new saves.  I realize this may be out of awesomemod's jurisdiction, but figured it can't hurt to post and see if maybe it's something small and simple i've overlooked.

Removed everything except awesomemod and it still happens, but for the sake of this report, here are my other mods:
MasterController + Cheats
Porter
DebugEnabler  (my awesomemod debug commands is toggled off)
Inge's invisible floor rugs
DasMatze's Skylights
Handful of hairstyles/outfits.

I have all expansions except University, 70-90s stuff, and diesel stuff installed.  About half are legit, half Arrr'd.

The world is primarily made up of imported Community Lots and Houses/Sims from Sunset Valley, Bridgeport and Twinbrook, as well as some made from scratch ones without any unofficial CC.
112 premade sims, and 6 premade pets in total.  The world is a mostly flat grid, so terrain shouldn't be an issue.
Population spawners are all toggled off except for pets and celebrities.

Any ideas would be appreciated.  <3

I thought that for a moment, but I don't think it's the sole reason.  I've made 3 custom worlds, and this is the first one it's happened on.  It's also the first one to have this many sims, but i have the population cap disabled in my awesome config, so unless that's broken it shouldn't matter.

The only reason you should get that particular error is if you have some sort of corrupt career data in your game. I can't think why this would occur offhand. Since this is an EAxian call that accepts no arguments, it should never break unless your game is damaged in some way...

In two different games I had some inactives end up with the Pedophile trait (with Pedophila disabled in the config). My only guess now is that this must have happened during a full moon. One Sim had the Supernatural Fan trait, the other the Insane trait - both are likely to embrace other Sims spontaneously, and some of these embraces are considered romantic. The insane Sim could have embraced her teenage daughter, the Supernatural Sim was friends with some teenagers in town and could have done the same. There were no Sims with the Pedobait trait afterwards, however.
Is it possible to stop this trait from being applied in that case?

Hi, I'm not sure if this is a bug. I'm playing with the "Scale Skill Difficulty to Age Span"  (Age Span set at 270 days) and the Handiness skill seems to grow at normal speed while fixing objects (like the shower or the toilet). Fixing one of those raised up an entire level of the skill (at lower levels). The other skills seem much slower in comparison.

On a side note, is there a list of changes to the story progression of the mod? I've read the RTFM but there's not a description of what it actually change the story progression (things like emigration, immigration...).

Examining the action tables for this reveals that this isn't supposed to be possible at all: The "Lunatic Embrace" action excludes 12s as both actors and victims, and is limited to YAE only. Therefore, the situation you describe cannot occur.

Fixed. Was caused by a peculiar edge case of a sim trying to skill Mixology, but with no valid objects deployed in the entire world.

So, what could cause this then? StoryProgression was off in both cases, Pedophilia is off by default and when user-directed none of these two has any interaction available that is marked with the handcuffs. But they became pedophiles nevertheless. If, by any chance, a teen could have initiated something they should have got the Pedobait as a consequence, shouldn't they?

It does create some problems at least, as these are deleted before the roles are fully assigned and in one case I ended up with the barista bar tender as my Sim's professor.
I checked with MasterController and these deleted Sims ended up as compressed MiniSims.

Usually, this is caused by smartasses attempting to evade the rules by use of third-party modifications to try to bypass the handcuffs. This is why they also don't confess and waste my time with frivolous reports. Did YOU do something like that? SPEAK! CONFESS YOUR CRIMES!

AwesomeMod contains no functionality that will delete sims without your specific request. This therefore cannot happen unless you are mass-deleting sims using one of the destroy/rapture/erase commands. So...stop doing that?

No crimes to confess. I did try one of those ominous third-party modidfications now but even there pedohilia is not enabled and user-directed YA-12 romance is not possible. So, whatever.

I loaded several games with only Awesome and upon arrival in the Uni world most homeless were already deleted. I loaded several games without Awesome and upon arrival all of the homeless were still alive. I wouldn't report this here if I ran any destroy commands myself. So there is nothing I can stop doing.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Edit:
I tried again:
(1) Loaded a fresh vanilla game with a fresh user folder in Sunset Valley, only mod was noCD. Had the Sim take the test and then saved.
(2) Reloaded and sent the Sim to university. On arrival used testingcheats and "Make me know everyone". Result 164 Sims. Saved.
(3) Reloaded that save with AM and config added. Ran "listhomeless". Result: 8 households with 7 members, 1 with 5 members, 1 with 3 members, 2 with 1 members, 1 with 18 members (Service household perhaps). 84 homeless bums.
(4) Reloaded first save with AM and config. Sent Sim to university. On arrival ran "listhomeless". Result: 1 household with 7 members, 1 with 6 members, 1 with 3 members, 1 with 1 members, 1 with 21 members. 38 homeless bums.
Most of those 7-members households were deleted. Afaik these are the co-students and potential professors. The 1-members households were freshly spawned, were named and with §20,000 each in household funds. The others are unnamed and have §200.
(5) Reloaded first save with AM and without the config. Sent Sim to university. On arrival ran "listhomeless". Result: 2 households with 7 members, 1 with 3, 3 with 1, and 1 with 23. 41 homeless bums. Again most of the 7-members households were gone.
"Make Me Know Everyone" went down from 164 to 109.

step (3) suggests that this happens during the transition from homeworld to uni world, as the population remains unchanged when I load a non-Awesome game with AM added.

Edit 2: I also found this script error while poking around my user folders. It's unrelated to the issue above, but mentions Awesome Motivator.

Just a thought - would one of the ones that changes and interaction to being 'friendly' be the possible cause. There's a lot of those mods out there.

Can you elaborate more on this? Apparently some of those traits are supposed to be invisible, so you may not see them. What causes those traits, and what happens if you acquire those traits while Chosen/Radar is not on?

This may not be a bug, as such, I haven't cleared caches or anything - about to try it now & will report on progress - but I just had this FSE pop up and am merely wondering what would cause it http://i47.tinypic.com/4n5mt.png

EDIT - Okay, cleared caches and restarted..and now I have an unplayable save file. Help?
(I've a backup I can use in the meantime, but I'm guessing I can't really restore this one...)
(scratch that, that's me thinking dotted outlines automatically equal unplayable)

EDIT (2) - I was able to play with my family for a while, probably about 18 sim hours, and the same error happened. This is after clearing my caches, etc etc. I am unable to test it with a completely vanilla game + AM, because I cannot rename the folder to make a backup of it, Windows keeps saying that it is in use by another program, however TS3 isn't running, nor is the launcher - processes in task manager also do not bring up anything blatantly EA or TS3. :/

Paige, reboot your computer. Sometimes windows (particularly windows 7) will "forget" to turn off a program completely. Rebooting helps. This way you can do the rename without any issues (presuming you have admin permissions if required)

It would appear that AM is preventing Sims from relaxing in igloos.
I've finally played a save long enough for it to be Winter and now that there is snow on the ground I got my Sims to build an igloo. They can nap, sleep and woohoo without issues but trying to get them to relax results in a jump reset.
With AM removed the issue goes away and my Sims can relax fine. To make sure it wasn't a case of a conflict, I ran the save with JUST AM and the error came back.
I'm patched up to 1.50 with all packs, minus the Katy Perry crap, and my copy of AM was downloaded two days ago.

SC does not appear to be monitoring the vampire thirst motive properly.  If I use the "Eat" command, it functions as expected, but SC will not trigger the command on its own.

So this is still a thing...

Running with Debug mode on, the game did indeed throw up a FSE when I attempted to get my Sim to relax in an igloo. This was with a freshly built igloo on a new lot but with the same Sim as when I initially reported the issue.
Here's a screenshot for you;

Can you elaborate more on this? Apparently some of those traits are supposed to be invisible, so you may not see them. What causes those traits, and what happens if you acquire those traits while Chosen/Radar is not on?

This happens to me also. When a sim gets the extra trait from social influence or finishing a degree, the trait is supposed to be listed with de other traits. The extra traits are not invisible. But the new traits are not showing up on the chosen sims. This problem only occurs with the chosen sims, not the rest.

I have also experienced another weird problem. After finishing the university degree, the sims are supposed to travel back home, but somehow they get stuck in the university world, with no where to live, and nothing to do. They just walk the streets. No car is picking them up and taking them home. If I try "resetsim *" they just disappear, and Im still stuck in university world. I have tried to go to edit town and go back to the neighbourhood but my sim is not there either, and I can't change household because of the moving. This happens 50% of the time, and its really annoying to have to start all over again. Has anyone experienced the same problem? What to do? :)

I have the lastest version of Awesomemod installed.

(Btw, thanks for making AwesomeMod, the game is nothing without it!)

A workaround for the first problem is to removed the chosen trait from your sims while they're at uni.  They don't need it there anyway, as story mode doesn't apply there.

The second problem is not an AM problem.  I've had it in two neighbourhoods now, both times when a sim went back to uni the second time (or a second sim went to uni).  Try putting Twallan's Traveller mod in your game, and then using the phone to drop the sim out of university after they've graduated and received their extra trait, or after they've received their results for the term.  If that doesn't help, take a look here: http://sims3.crinrict.com/en/2013/03/sim-cant-return-home-after-graduation.html

I no longer send sims to uni because the game glitches out when it's time to leave.

I'm sorry if it is hard to read.  I still haven't figured how to take screen caps of my game, all I get is a black screen with FPS ##.  The best I could do was the text outside the game.

I kept getting this right before my sim is supposed to be heading home.  I restarted the game from before he went off to Uni and now when the main hood is supposed to load from coming back home I get dumped back into University and can't play (Just curious is this the same thing you have happen Kyna?).   I have already downloaded the latest awesome mod but haven't yet tested to see if I can move on.  


I found out this is happens in vanilla games too.

First FSE ever, I'm really...not sure what to do about it. Happened only once so far. Had just moved a CAS family into a lot and began to play when it occurred. Is there something I should do? How do I go about fixing this? Is it even something I can fix? Do I just have bad files or something? I do have CC, MasterController, ErrorTrap, Overwatch, and a bunch of clothes and hair and stuff. It's all updated, but other than that nothing has changed with my CC recently, although I was using a semi-custom town, (Sunset Valley 7.0 ALGPStSnSs) from Naga over at the Carl's Sims Forums and it was my first time playing in the town.

Hi. I had no FSE from a very long time. Suddenly it appears. I have all EPs and SPs (latest updates installed), no custom mods and packages except Awesomemod from May 9th (this year of course). I have sent my sim to university, he's living in the dorm. I noticed that when I enter build/buy mode and back to living mode, all sims living in this dorm got reset (no matter where they are before, they are suddenly appear next to the dorm main entrance). So I typed "fixall" command and:

I'm using "fixall" command every time before saving my game (I'm saving my game every about 20/30 minutes of gameplay) and never had FSE before. After closing FSE message window whole simulation seems to work like before but now I'm not playing this game to do not make any more errors.

Thank you in advance for any info, what went wrong.

P. S.
Sorry for my english if I wrote something wrong way.

My game keeps freezing and crashing whenever the trait screen comes up, whether it's for aging up or in CAS.  No FSE screen comes up, the game just freezes and stops responding.  My game worked just fine after deleting awesomemod... It made me really sad that I had to delete it because I love awesomemod :(  
Is there any way the trait aspects of awesomemod could be removed?  I think that might be what's causing my problems. I was disappointed to see there's no trait options for the config tool.
I don't have any other mods or custom content but I do have a bunch of pirated store items in package form, if that makes any difference.

My scuba diving sim has also started peeing herself regularly since Awesomemod was installed.  When underwater, the sim pees once the bladder bar drops to about 75%.  
The peeing scuba divers is an EAxian feature, actually.

Aren't SCUBA divers meant to pee themselves to keep warm IRL?
Apparently this is a feature, which probably why you don't want a rental suit: Someone has probably peed in it. However, I find the physics of such a thing questionable, as it seems like it would produce the opposite effect in the long run: You start with a warm, body-temperature fluid reservoir, and you eject it. But water tends to contain a high specific heat and thus retains heat better...so you'll end up losing heat faster as you've just ejected your heat reservoir. This plan seems to be a fail.

I don't know if this is an AM thing or not, but the street art set in my sim's inventory is not useable.  When I click it, I get a hand to take it out or I get the option to give it as a gift.  I tried taking mods out and putting them back, still the same thing.  I also bought a new one, set it on the street and still no option to use it.
Thanks

I've noticed the bug in IP, where when you wanna improve your resort (be it with build/buy mode or by using the management interractions) the improvements are not charged to the owner (Only the improvements to the rooms rabbithole are, the 5,000 and 10,000 ones). While this is not a bug that need to be fixed right away, the bug makes the whole improve your resort challenge nulled.

Hrm, looks like I posted in the wrong spot before. Go me, clueless idiot, etc.

Anyhow, using the test version of 1.55, it seems Build and Buy both get greyed out.  AM is the only thing I installed on top of an otherwise functional install.

Sound issue sounds like a rehash of the old Bicycle bug. Probably someone needs to make a STFU-Bicycle-type mod for whatever is screwing up the sounds.

Ok possible bug. In my config I have it set up to where it is build/buy on current lot always. And when I was testing out the new 1.55 version with my config file set that way it made it to where I could not build/buy at all on houseboats. I didn't notice a problem on regular lots just houseboats. I did try moving the camera all around on the houseboat and even down to the basement and zoomed in, all with the same result the build/buy was totally disabled. No other issues found as of yet. But thought I would let you know about this one. Once I edited by config file turning off that feature I didn't have a problem with build/buy mode.

When I remove AM (latest test version) it works fine.

I have not played the Sims in a while and just bought a package from Steam that is up to Supernatural and reports game version 1.55
I installed the latest awesomemod and when the game launches I get an error "Non-critical core mismatch! A core file not part of AwesomeMod does not match expected values." I press ignore and the game launches but all buttons are unclickable and all pulldowns are blank. I am running a clean install with nothing but awesomemod and framework for mods.

Any ideas?

Thanks

AM is only up to 1.50. 1.55 is in testing - if you can find it, you get to use it. If not, wait for the stable release.

I think I have worked out what is causing the sound issues - I have that stupid swan peddle boat in IP and my sound stopped when some townie was on it. Managed to nuke it, no issue.

Flagrant system error. Test version of Awesome. I do have other mods, but they are "supposedly" up to date. IP patched to 1.55

My Sim went to play with the Gnubb set thing on a community lot and all it had was "Join Game" with a Sim standing next to it. My Sim sat there for a few minutes and no game started. So I had her greet the Sim I thought was trying to initiate a game and got this. I clicked the okay check mark and everything was fine. The Gnubb set could be played with.

I tried at a regular Late Night bar that I placed in the new EP world, then I tried at the new pool bar that came with the EP, and when both failed I started a fresh vanilla game in Bridgeport, where the same happened. That's why I am not sure whether AM had added these icons or whether they were default but are gone now.

If AM has nothing to do with the sound issue, why does it only happen when AM is the only mod installed? But when AM isn't installed and other mods are, there is no sound problems. I'm not saying AM is causing the problem, i'm just wondering why it happens with AM being the only mod installed when it does happen.


I think I have worked out what is causing the sound issues - I have that stupid swan peddle boat in IP and my sound stopped when some townie was on it. Managed to nuke it, no issue.

In consideration of your sound issue fix and when the problem came back in IP, I looked into object stats via Master Controller and there wasn't a single swan peddle boat anywhere in the world. There were sailboats, speed boats, fishing boats and water scooters, but no peddle boats.

The released version of AM, when combined with Overwatch and/or ErrorTrap is now crashing the game. The test version did not do this. I suppose it's technically not an AM problem, but I'm throwing it out there anyway.

Sound issues remain; I haven't found a pattern to it yet, so I don't know if it's AM or not, or what is causing it to happen.

It's probably ErrorTrap as I've been reading about the the issues it was causing.  It's had at least 2 updates this week. I've pulled it from my game which then was running fine (more or less).

When traveling to the University world AwesomeMod still deletes most of the homeless population.
The first time it deleted all except for 3, the second time I was left with 20 homeless Sims, the third attempt listed 39 homeless bums. The fourth time in a different, fresh game had 16 survivors.

First two tries were done together with MasterController for population checks, the last two with only AwesomeMod and nothing else.
What I did was have a Sim take the test and send them to university straight away. Population checks were done immediately upon arrival in university world. Config is default, no config file and no other console commands were used than "listhomeless".
Default homeless population should be something around 70.
MasterController shows that they were all compressed into MiniSims, together with the Sims from main character's homeworld.
Without AwesomeMod homeless University Sims stay intact and only homeworld Sims end up as MiniSims.

I managed to get Sims stop using jetskies while traveling on-land; I just typed in "setConfig smarterVehicleChooser false". At first I thought it was EA's revolutionary idea, but the fact that there were also water effects along with jetskies really made me go "Ugh".

Though about that sound issue - that really scared the crap out of me! I thought my fucking sound card went faulty. Anyway, I updated my driver and rolled back my game to an auto-backup. The sound's over (for) now.

I've been running the latest AM in Sunlit Tides with zero problems. My sim's can use the jetski/all of the boats on water just fine and with setConfig smarterVehicleChooser false, I haven't seen any on the roads either. For me, the sound issue seems to be Isla Paradiso specific.

I was able to get rid of the sound popping issue permanently in Isla Paradiso.  First I disabled SmarterVehicleChooser.  That by itself doesn't stop the sound popping.  To stop that required resetting everything.  I don't know if AM has that ability built-in, but I already had Nraas MasterController installed and it has a "Reset Everything" under Town.  I was able to confirm this works on two different saves on two different machines and the problem did not reoccur even after 4-hours of gameplay.

With smarterVehicleChooser now working properly, a reset everything is probably all that's necessary to fix the sound.

For reference, I do not have IP installed, but I am patched to 1.55 with the latest AwesomeMod for this patch level.  It may be relevant that I am also using Twallan's Careers mod (also updated for patch 1.55), considering this FSE looks to be all career related.

Re: mass deletion of homeless Sims in University world.
I think I have figured out what may be happening here: I always play with Story Progression off and all supernaturals, celebrities and whatnot disabled in the Advanced Demographics Options. When I had these enabled but Story Progression still off, meaning the boxes were ticked but greyed out, a large portion of the residents in the Uni world were already transformed into supernaturals when my Sim arrived. So, it is possible that AwesomeMod deletes those homeless Sims that the game tries to convert into supernaturals during transition. This would go well with my observation that no matter how often I tried to travel to the Uni world there was always one constant: regardless of how many homeless were left after the purge, the two PlantSims that are supposed to live in the homeless bin were always missing.
This is a bit stupid if it's true. Can this possibly be fixed such that it rather prevents conversion of humans into supernaturals according to the Advanced Demographics Options, leaves the pre-existing, i.e. PlantSim supernaturals intact and does not simply remove them all from the game?

AwesomeMod does not attempt to delete any Supernaturals regardless of your settings. In fact, AwesomeMod does not interact with those settings at all and neither attempts to add nor remove any Supernaturals. The cause of the disappearing sims is under investigation.

It's essentially the hygiene motive. Merfolk must regularly be in water to fill it up, when it's fully depleted they die.

It's essentially the hygiene motive. Merfolk must regularly be in water to fill it up, when it's fully depleted they die.

I've also noticed that baths seem to fill it up faster than showers.  Also standing in the rain or swimming does it, too.  It's really more of an annoyance than a feature as it decays too fast.  The only way it wouldn't be a pain is if we could build houses underwater...or at least let them sleep in water...but I digress...

Oh, and the Dirt Defiant trait supposedly doesn't affect hydration, but mermaids can still take it...I haven't personally tested this, but I saw complaints elsewhere about it...I certainly wouldn't cry if you added it to the list of motiveperkrebalance changes.

Mermaids apparently still have a hygiene motive, it's just hidden and (mostly) static.

Mermaid's also have a slightly different hunger system.  Normal foods don't fill them up as much (although there's mods for that) and seafood and kelp is supposed to work normal for them.  Not really sure if SC needs to be adjusted for that or not.

Tested this with AwesomeMod, without AwesomeMod, with ONLY AwesomeMod, but I am still experiencing a bug where my sim will reset whenever I go to Check Real estate using the phone or computer. Without AM installed it works perfectly fine, with AM installed my sim will reset, with NO MODS, except AM, it resets, with all my mods but no AM, it works fine. I have no idea why this is doing it.
Are you sure you have the latest AM? I can check real estate on the phone and computer without problems. Selling and renaming lots works fine, too. 

Yes I am 100% sure, I went and downloaded it yesterday again thinking maybe it's because I didn't update it, the one I have was updated last on the 19th (at least according to the file date change), and I got that via downloading it through the main page (I've forgotten the URL I used to use to download it straight from the ftp page). I have exhausted all options, as I said I removed EVERY addon except awesomemod, and with AM installed it resets the sim, but without it, I don't get a reset. This occurs in the IP neighbourhood, could it have something to do with that? I'll test it out in another neighbourhood an d see if it happens there.

Rubyelf, did you try doing a general resetsim* with just AM installed, and then a check to see if the problem persisted? If memory serves, removing AM causes the 'hood to reset when you load it, so that could be what is fixing the problem when you remove AM.

When I use the "addtrait" cheat on my teenager sim, I get a message saying "Boo! [simname] already has 4 out of 4 traits allowed." and it fails to add a 5th trait. I thought it could be something wrong with my tunning so I decided to try on my cat, wrote down "addtrait Hunter" and the trait was successfully added. When I tried to add a trait to my sim again, it displayed the same message. Any idea why the <addtrait> suddenly decided to work on pets only?

I am going to assume that you have disabled the trait cap before posting, because I am hoping, since you posted in the right place, that you are not completely stupid. With that said, have you tested on an adult to verify that it does not work on any sims?

Just tried it, didn't make a difference. It's only when I use the phone and laptop, I can buy real estate still, I just can't use check real estate.

Did you by chance disable the trait cap before trying to add another trait?

Yes, I checked and the tunning is fine. Also, it works for pets, just not humans, that's what makes it weird.

I've always had to wait until they hit YA to add the traits.  I can add to YA/A/E fine but not to children and teens.

Did you try it on an adult sim rather than a teen?

Just came here to report the same. I have two households in the current world, with one I can check real estate, with the other I cannot and the Sim that's using the phone resets.

Edit: Okay, I think I know the reason for this now. If there is one household in a world that already owns property no other household can access the "Check Real Estate" on the phone or computer. And it doesn't matter whether these housholds own property, too, or not. I tried both with landwoners and with households that didn't own any additional lots apart from their home. After I had the other household sell all their real estate my current household could access theirs via the phone again. I guess AwesomeMod does this to prevent multiple owners of the same lot, but something is broken because technically I should still be able to sell and buy other lots.

Edit2: After further testing it turns out that this happens only if another inactive household owns an Island Paradise resort. Selling that was enough to enable the Real Estate UI for all the other households again. It is still an AM issue, however, as this doesn't happen without AM installed.

There seems to be an issue with using Supreme Commander to make a Sim level Tinkering. Every time I try to select it, the game tells me that there is no available workbench, despite the fact that I'm looking right at one.

Sims with Chosen and/or Track on Radar are unable to receive their extra traits from social group influence and degree.

Can you elaborate more on this? Apparently some of those traits are supposed to be invisible, so you may not see them. What causes those traits, and what happens if you acquire those traits while Chosen/Radar is not on?

This happens to me also. When a sim gets the extra trait from social influence or finishing a degree, the trait is supposed to be listed with de other traits. The extra traits are not invisible. But the new traits are not showing up on the chosen sims. This problem only occurs with the chosen sims, not the rest.

This still happens, by the way.  I just graduated a couple of sims, and didn't realize I had to unbless them first.  Fortunately, I save often, so I have a recent prior save to go back to.

I hadn't until today since I had no adults on my active household. I think Skadi is right, it doesn't work on kids and teenagers, cause it worked fine on the adults. I need to find another way to give my teenagers extra traits :/



edit: In order to disable the censor mosaic, the option on the tunning file need to be set to Enabled, right? 'Cause it was working fine until I decided to stream TS3 on twitch. I had to reactivate the mosaic so I created a file named aweconf-stream.package. It worked fine, but now I wanted to go back to not having the mosaic so I deleted the aweconf-stream.package and replaced it with the regular aweconf.package I had before, but the mosaic is still there.

Since the latest patch and AM update I cannot disable Story Progression. I'm not sure if this is an AM problem or if it's EAxian.  (I have been using AM very happily with no problems for a long time so I feel like this is an EAxian thing, but the moderators of another TS3 forum directed me here, insisting that it must be an AM bug because "If [AM] is installed and working properly, it hijacks the story progression code.")

My game is patched and I have the current version of AM.  My AM seems to be installed correctly because I get all the proper pop-ups when I do the "showconfig" thing.  I have the Story Progression checkbox unchecked in the Game Options but I am getting new random Sims spawning into my empty houses, which I do not want.  I have tried playing with AM Story Mode enabled and disabled in the config, either way I can't disable SP.  I have Ambitions, Pets and Supernatural if that makes any difference.

AM makes no difference in whether you can tick or untick the story progression option in your game config - whomever you were talking to needs to pull their heads out of their arses.

I can think of no mod that removes functionality from that game option button. Start looking at your actual game program being the problem - or you.

If SP is set to off in the game's options then it's off, regardless of how AM is configured. Are you sure those aren't necessary NPCs that will spawn whether or not SP is off or not?

Nope, they're not NPCs, they are new households moving into my empty homes.

That's kind of what I figured.   Technically I don't need to start looking at my game or me being the problem, because I already suspected that.  But at least this gives me something more concrete to take back to the other forum and say no, this is not an AM issue.  Now I just need to figure out what the hell is actually wrong with it or what I did to it.   :-\  Thanks!

Right, but are they co-workers/employees? Sims that have to exist in order for the world to function? Even NPCs have to live somewhere.

When I run the Check Real Estate with twallan's ErrorTrap added my active household will actually be hard-reset and I get a script error. I tried several times and the result is reproducible, my active Sim and some random townie get reset. I uploaded 3 of these error logs, one of them also mentions an error with Awesome Motivator.
