1  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: What are these? on: 2013 October 16, 17:41:20
Oh my God, thank you so much! I managed to delete them using moveobjects ON. (duh! why didn't I think of that)

I'm just happy it was an EA bug and that I hadn't done something terribly wrong.

I started having problems with my game, so I removed my TS3-folder and started a new game. Everything's been fine ever since, except for this one really annoying thing.

At first it was just my family's Uni house. A round-shaped mirror-like object suddenly appeared on the living room floor. Can't be deleted, can't be moved. I'm not even sure if it's an object or some sort of bug in graphics.
After the family moved back home, a similar one appeared on their house, at the same spot it was in the Uni house. So, I made them move to an empty lot and built a new house.

Eventually one of their kids moved out. I started playing with his family. He was then invited to a party to his parents' house. At the party I noticed that there was a new mirror-thingy on the floor of their "new" house as well. After the party I made the parents' family active, and when I went to see their house, this is what I found:

I'm sure I'm not the first one to see these, but English is not my mother language and I have MS which makes it really hard to concentrate and understand things, so I'm not sure where and how to look. What are those and how do I get rid of them?

I have all expansions and stuff packs. They're all Arrr'd, but that was never a problem with sims 2 (not saying that couldn't be the reason now). I have the newest Awesome Mod, 3Booter and fps-limiter. Removing those doesn't solve the problem. Everything should be in the right place and also I've checked each and every file and there should be no other CC in my game.

If there's a topic about this somewhere, a link will do just fine. I hope.

I just found this site:

I didn't find a discussion about it here, so I don't know if you've seen it.
If I understood correctly, there's two sites called "the sims vault" and this is not the paysite one..

Apparently this person has downloaded a bunch of mods from MTS2 in 2004 or so, and has uploaded them to this site (and seems to claim that they are still hosted in MTS2). There's mods from Pescado and TwoJeffs, there's InTeen, InSim used to be there.. With InTeen there's a link to the InSim forum for details, rest of the mods have (obviously not working) links to MTS2. SimPe's download-link is the only one that leads to the site where it's actually hosted. There seems to be rtfm's with the downloads, but other than that the makers of these mods are not mentioned anywhere on this site.

I don't have much knowledge about uploading rules, so I thought I'd ask you Awesome Ones what you think about this. To me it feels at least morally wrong. Not to mention it doesn't make much sense that someone pays (since it's a free site) to host mods that are already hosted somewhere else.

Okay, would someone please explain to me what I'm doing wrong?

I made it to the tribal stage. My creatures are peaceful herbivores and I tried to make friends with other tribes. I tried to communicate with them, but the game said I should play an instrument to them. Okay, so I look for one. I've got one instrument. I make a few of my creatures take the instruments and go with their leader to the other tribe's area. I click other tribe members with the leader and my creatures start playing. A meter comes up but it doesn't change. The game says I can press some buttons to make the performance better. Finally I find the buttons and when I press them, the game says I can only use that abillity during a performance. Result? Nothing happens. I forget about the whole thing and go gather food. Soon the other tribe becomes my enemy. They start attacking me. So I figure I'll attack them, whipe them out and proceed that way. I have my creatures take torches and go to the other tribe's area, again. I have no option to attack them, only to give gifts. But not to worry, they attack me. After a long fight and a lot of respawning, the enemy tribe's population is zero. What happens next? Nothing. I still have an option to give them gifts. I figure I'll attack other tribes as well, maybe I'll "win" when they're all defeated. But the tribe I just killed starts respawning. During all this my tribe hasn't evolved even one bit. Advice, anyone?

For those who had it not work, was the telescope in a common area or private balcony? Neither should affect anything, but you know how EAxis thinks...

Mine was on the roof of an apartment building. I used apt building cheats to build stairs and a fence so that the roof is at least supposed to act like it's a part of the apt. My sim tried summoning aliens for 6 hours and nothing happened. Although there was really short moments of lag, which usually indicate that something or someone is coming to the lot (or I could just be paranoid). Lot debugger didn't notice any offworld loiterers though, and the lag wasn't as bad as the last time someone tried to come to the lot but couldn't.

Roomies seem to get all their needs refilled by going to work and never have to sleep or much of anything else thus killing the challenge of keeping them happy.

I had that the only time I had a roommate.

Going on a date with a neighbor on the lot causes them to go back inside of their apartment and won't come back out.

Well my sim's date kept going back to his apartment but everytime he did, he remembered he's on a date and came back.

The garage doors that came with NL count as another apartment door where as the ones that came with AL do not.

I haven't tested the other carage doors, but in pre-made apartments sims do tend to use the carage door more than the apartment door.
Speaking of carages, it's frustrating that you can't place a car on the driveway on an apartment lot, if you have a carage.

More Romantic than You bed doesn't use all the default bedding.

Yeah, it only has three.

Butler cooks for hungry toddler and if he cannot find empty counters or tables to put newly cooked food, he puts them in common areas. Sims also seem to be setting the tables out in common areas too and aren't suppose to be.

My sims do that too if they don't have enough space in their apartments. Didn't know if this was a clitch or a feature, but it still feels like it's not supposed to happen.

One thing I also noticed is that apparently if you somehow manage to get a telescope to an apartment lot, you can't get abducted. So no alien babies for my knowledge sims living in apartments. Roll Eyes

I don't know if this is a clitch or am I doing something wrong, but I'll mention it anyway.

I had two CAS-sims in a pre-made apartment. I made them both witches, one evil and one good. When they both got the ability to make those lamp-thingies, the nice witch could make it without problems, but the evil witch couldn't. She had all motives up (almost max) when she began. Halfway through her motives had dropped so low she couldn't continue anymore. So it takes my evil witch much longer to finish her lamp. So far she's been working on it 4 times and still not finished. I had only awesome hacks, and I've tested this with no CC at all so I know it's not a conflict.

Oh, and, then there's the thing with her spellbook and cauldron. When I took them out of her inventory, I moved them a couple of times after that, but now they're unselectable. My sim can use them, but I can't select them in buy/build mode or in inventory. Move_objects on doesn't help.

Edit: Solved. For some reason the game thought that the little room wasn't a part of the apartment.

I uninstalled and re-installed FT and AL. FT items work fine now. Only problem is that when the uninstalling deleted all saved games (which was fine since I didn't need them) I now have only EP 'hoods and none of the 'hoods from base game. Not that I wanted to play them but I'd like to have the option.

I've done more testing with the closets, and I've noticed that when neither of the sims are doing anything else, they both go into the closet and WooHooing works fine. But when one is busy doing something.. This time I put the female reading and the male attempting to Try for Baby. He opened and closed the door and she became pregnant.

Took me long enough, but I finally figured out that I should test if other FT items work. They didn't. So at some point installing AL borked my FT install. So.. Never mind that bug, I'll re-install both. Roll Eyes
10  TS2: Burnination / Oops! You Broke It! / Re: Apartment Life Borkiness, or how i ended the world in 1 hour. on: 2008 August 27, 17:50:49
Nope, still have the same bugs. The Sims 3 still doesn't work (it has a flashing blue screen). The SSX-game works fine, though.

And my sims still keep WooHooing in the closet the same way. This time the husband did get out of the toilet with WooHoo on his queue, after his wife had already got pregnant.

Oh, and Humble's computer is also invisible.

You removed the CEP, right? It probably needs updating...

Just realised I didn't. I removed all CC-stuff but forgot that one. It's removed now and I also updated the drivers. I'll start the game in a moment and see if anything's changed.
12  TS2: Burnination / Oops! You Broke It! / Re: Apartment Life Borkiness, or how i ended the world in 1 hour. on: 2008 August 27, 14:58:39
I'm going to guess you have an ATI video card -- this was a bug in the release version of FT that was finally fixed by the 2nd/3rd patch, and also fixed by an update to the ATI drivers.  Looks like it's back.

Yes, I do. This is actually the first time I've had this problem. I have FT but never had any problems (like this anyway) and I never patched my game. Maybe I'll try updating the drivers and see if that helps.
13  TS2: Burnination / Oops! You Broke It! / Re: Apartment Life Borkiness, or how i ended the world in 1 hour. on: 2008 August 27, 14:36:58
I played AL for 30 minutes this morning and these are the bugs I noticed:

- Potty and high chair that came with FT are missing the wooden colours, I can only choose white ones. I can place them on the apartment, but they're invisible and so I can't use them.

- I directed my sim to first clean up dishes and then cook a meal. She cooked the meal and ate it, with the cleaning still at the end of the queue (notice it was the first thing I directed her to do).

- When my sim finished eating, she walked out of the apartment, down the stairs and placed the plate on a table there. This was to be expected, but it was still annoying.

- Trying for baby in the closet worked like this: Man sits on sofa reading a book. Woman walks to the closet. Woman opens the closet door, "*bling* I'm pregnant", woman closes closet door and leaves. Man is still sitting on sofa reading a book.

- I don't know if this is a bug or if there's something wrong with my game, but there's no video clips on the television anymore. When my sim tries to watch television I just get some text on white background on the tv-screen and that's it. Also my sims can play The sims 3 on the videogame thingy, but there's just a blue screen and no sound.

My sims don't seem to have any other vacation wants than to go on vacation and go to Far East. I have all three vacation 'hoods in my regular 'hoods, but my sims only want to go to Far East. Is it just my game or/and can it be fixed somehow? (I think all my hacks are awesome at the moment.) Also it would be nice if my sims didn't have wants to go on tour and other stuff that are only available in vacations, when they're home. Roll Eyes
