1  TS2: Burnination / Peasantry / Re: Empty and Cleaned-up Templates. [UPDATED] on: 2008 September 02, 13:06:11
Hmm. Someone reported that for the new social groups and witches, it's enough to delete their template character data, then the game will create new ones based on someone's very own templates, and everything should work fine. Would you people agree or am I overlooking something?

Well that's not all...you also need to edit the template because the memories and stuff are still there which eventually will bork your game...as in jumping bug, those weird bubbles with stripes...I wouldn't do it. It's the same with all the templates...deleting all the characters is NOT enough. That's why it's called empty and CLEANED-UP Templates...

...and afaik there won't be any cleaned-up AL template as long as there's no updated SimPE...so just wait and drink rum.

At least that's what I know.

Potential problem with the empty templates...

While the game will generate a NPC to be the 'hobby' head, and the lots are in the game, the game makes a NPC a member of that club.

In riverblossom where I did some testing (since Rose is most likely always going to be nature enthusastic), I put her into the lot, where the head, and two NPCs showed up. A pizza delivery man, and an exterminator.
I doubt this is a problem with the empty templates. I noticed the very same thing even without them. Several NPCs showed up as club members, such as the burglar, some custom dormies, some professors and even the cook from Downtown. I have very few townies in my game - maybe five "real" townies and about eight dormies? The rest are all playables, maybe that's why the game even allows NPCs to wander around the club lots? *wonders*
Well yeah, the game basically takes any NPCs it can get and turns them into "hobby-sims"...so my advise would be - if you start off with a complete new neighborhood NPC free spawn with boolprop townies (30 will be generated per batch) and the game will select these - that is if you spawn them BEFORE you enter the hobbylot. It's what I did and as I said - no maid, no gardener, no postman, no nanny...only the spawned ones. If you don't spawn any townies - well logically the game will use those rather "unusual" NPCs.

So I just did a "complete" test with a new neighborhood and everything is a-okay.  Grin I spawned with boolprop 30 townies and then they were used as the sims on the hobby lots - no unusual NPCs like postman or anything. No crashes, no bugs, no glitches.  Cheesy

Naaah I don't want any ugly Maxis Sims lol.

Well the template works for me so far so good. Only Mr. Humble (orwhatshisname) is popping round to bring the PC - but that's okay.
No problems at all so far with the template.  Cheesy

If I knew how to, I'd make a 'reverse' stealth hood, which only removes the playable families so I wouldn't need to go with the DELETED path, since if they were burninated to begin with, it wouldn't change the game.
So if I spawn (boolprop) townies BEFORE I go to any hobby lot - will they be used ?
Thanks for the template. Smiley

Yepp I tried deleting too and then I like deleted the lot files lol...which I restored - thank god. Lol.  Grin So I'm basically not touching anything until the templates comes out...  Cry

Yepp that's what I think @ Tragic...but I'd do a backup just to be sure anyway.


I can't wait for the clean Free Time templates lawl...will they be posted here, too? God I forgot how ugly maxis sims were.  Shocked
