1  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: EA to block any and all Custom Content? on: 2010 January 19, 23:50:57
It's inevitable really. EA want you to play their damn game the damn way they damn tell you to damn play it.

When such a move occurs, Will Wright will die and spin in his grave.
2  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Quick business-related question on: 2010 January 18, 16:45:19
I did a search but couldn't find anything. Am I right to assume it's a VBT to hire tourists/locals/iconic hobbyists as employees for my businesses? I recall something about this topic, but I can't remember what the verdict on this was.
3  TS2: Burnination / Oops! You Broke It! / Re: Lag (black screen) while loading on: 2010 January 12, 16:41:04
I'm also getting this. Win7 Ult 64, AMD and Nvidia here. While I agree it seems to be relatively harmless, it is weird and annoying.
4  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Unable to copy from disk when patching/installing EP after reinstall - RESOLVED on: 2009 December 21, 20:57:23
I'm assuming the patch is hard coded to install to the C:\ drive, instead of searching for whatever drive the game is actually installed on, therefore refusing to copy anything as it cannot find the game executable. I installed Ye Olde Sims (The Sims 1) today, and a patch for that threw up the same message funnily enough. Yet the bonus crap that was also on the disc installed perfectly fine.
5  TS2: Burnination / Planet K 20X6 / Re: EAxis House of Phail: September 2009 on: 2009 September 05, 15:42:14
Yes. As long as it matches the original footprint, that's fine.
6  TS2: Burnination / Planet K 20X6 / Re: EAxis House of Phail: September 2009 on: 2009 September 04, 18:12:13
To be fair, it does look far better in Seasons than this base-game-ified version here. It's still pretty crappy though.
7  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: TS3 was to include weather. on: 2009 September 03, 17:45:37
EAxis care about their customers, I really believe they do.
Do you work for EA or something? You are clearly one of the sheeple to even consider saying that. I've never seen a company treat their customers with as much contempt as EA does. If they are showing any "care" for their customers, it's some half-assed attempt merely to hold their own against their newly merged, and much larger, rival.
8  TS2: Burnination / Oops! You Broke It! / Owned community lot no longer a business. on: 2009 September 02, 20:41:47
Well something very odd has happened here.

Basically I have a sim who owns a salon business. I haven't played the family in quite a long time, since way before I installed AL when it first came out. Anyway, I sent my sim over to the business, and although I can access Buy/Build mode and offer free makeovers, the lot pretty much acts like an unowned community lot. There is a cashier NPC at the register; there is no business tracker; everyone acts like it's an unowned lot, and the doors are unselectable (although fortunately my lock setting is still evidently there, keeping the peasants out of the employee quarters). I have no idea what has happened and was wondering what to do next?
9  TS2: Burnination / Planet K 20X6 / Re: EAxis House of Phail: August 2009 on: 2009 September 02, 10:05:57
To be honest, I'd rather see a base game house or something. Last time we did a house that was weirdly shaped, not many people deviated from the original structure, so a lot of the houses were quite similar. With a more ordinary sort of house, people tend to run wild with it, and I enjoy seeing what people come up with when they do.

This thread lists the titles one would receive based on the cumulative sum of their donations back then, if that's what you wanted to know.
11  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: TS3 was to include weather. on: 2009 August 31, 13:42:22
TS3 was supposed to include the entire World Adventures thing, too. I saw references in the code to a moodlet for "Adventure", just like with weather and pets, meaning all these things were ALREADY in the game and were intentionally cut. We know they already existed because they are already solved problems, and thus the only reason they are not present is because they were intentionally cut to be resold seperately.

Lies & Propaganda of a different sort, eh? I'll be laughing when they refer to these as brand-new features down the track.
Well it explains why this EP is being pushed out pretty quickly. It's not surprising in the least though.

The Sims 1 EPs were made because people kept demanding them. The Sims 2 EPs were made because of expectation, and they used some concepts and ideas from things that never made it into the game and the stuff of olde that people wanted back. The Sims 3 EPs were planned from the beginning and are just pre-existing crap sold seperately.
12  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: Share pix / vidz of THE HORROR here on: 2009 August 29, 14:19:24
The Urbz was okay. Decent, but not as interesting as it could have been.

I think TS1 for console is the only one that is actually any good. I mean, it actually looks better than the PC version, your sims can actually die during the story IIRC, it has humour and does the goal based gameplay much better, as it just gives you some long term goals to achieve over time rather than the rigid "Go here. Now go there. Now do this" which the other console and stories games did.
13  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / Pudding Plots / Re: Get Your Homeless Bums off the Street in Style! (Over-stuff-able Housing) on: 2009 August 27, 15:43:44
I like those display homes a lot. I might even have to covert them into apartments in The Sims 2.

My only criticism is with the actual livable house. I feel that the roof at the very front could actually extend into the middle roof, but that's a minor thing. You've done a really good job here. It's quite hard to fill up a big house, and you've made pretty good use of the space, while leaving just enough for the inevitable extra expansion crap. Good job.
14  TS2: Burnination / Planet K 20X6 / Re: EAxis House of Phail: August 2009 on: 2009 August 23, 14:03:04
chobeegal -  + 10  for color and creativity.   - 15 for choking that poor house with plants, shrubs and trees.

OK, Honeywell, so I guess you don't like plants/flowers/shrubs/trees.
Are you like those people who go and buy a beautiful wooded lot (which because of the trees costs a lot more than the barren lot next to it) and then bulldoze them all out? If I had my way, those kind of people would be prosecuted for stupidity. If you want a "naked" lot then buy the one that already is. Don't pay extra money to get the one with trees and then murder them.
Personally I love to have lots of trees and greenery surrounding me and where I live. Rather than "choking" anything, they add a sense of freshness, "breathability", and yet privacy to a home. My one great complaint w/ Sims2 is that if I actually put as much "landscaping" into a Sims lot as I would like to have in RL, it makes the house totally unplayable.
Sorry, but hundreds of trees in a straight line and clipping through each other is not a good look. I have to agree with Honeywell that it's a shame, because the house itself really does look nice.

Some nice houses this month. The house for this month is much more versatile than the last one. I might give this one a shot.
15  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: A graphical glitch with adaptive anti-aliasing on: 2009 July 28, 19:21:56
I cannot attest to the accuracy of these claims, but according to EAxis:
ATI video driver's "Adaptive Antialiasing" option conflicts with ingame "Edge Smoothing." The combination causes visual corruption. A note has been added to the readme encouraging players not to enable these two features at the same time.
16  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: Patch 1.3 Released on: 2009 July 28, 19:19:35
I'm amazed that they would even consider fixing that much. Anyway, these two interested me the most.

Sims will now get the "Witnessed Divorce" moodlet from watching other married Sims break up.
Did this actually exist before, or is this an entirely new moodlet?

Sims can no longer "Try for Baby" with the Grim Reaper.
What a shame.  Sad
17  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: Fireplaces suck. on: 2009 July 26, 15:47:14
That's true. I just prefer the cheaper modern ones for some of my houses.
18  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: Fireplaces suck. on: 2009 July 26, 14:04:44
I quite liked the Auto Light upgrade until it resulted in burning the house down and killing everyone. I wish you could stack at least some of the upgrades.
19  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: The Driving Dead on: 2009 July 25, 15:03:15
Saw the same last night after I debug-spawned several ghosts in the default 'hood graveyard in a new save.
That's exactly what happened to me, ages back. I even made a post about this back on the picture thread. Mary-Lu is a default ghost, who was grave robbed and dumped unceremoniously onto my sim's lawn.

After Rhoda Bagley's first day back as a playable ghost, a pop-up for Mary-Lu Broke (who also resides on the lot) suddenly came up saying "Gotta go, bye!"

She gets in her car...

And then disappears into the science lab.

Her grave is still around, but I just thought that was really weird and random.
20  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: Share pix / vidz of THE HORROR here on: 2009 July 25, 15:00:43
I just loaded up my game after having to reformat and reinstall.

Has anyone seen this before? Any suggestions or do I just have to uninstall and start over again?
Yes, this happened to me. I think removing all package files and reinstalling Riverview via the launcher fixed it for me.
21  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: File that decides Maxis "townies"' names on: 2009 July 24, 07:51:00
or else they have absolutely zero quality control for stuff like this.
I think it's safe to say that we are the quality control.
22  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: New peggy hairs. They doesn't replace anything on: 2009 July 23, 20:51:41
We promise that our website will never affected by such issue and will continue to create more gorgeous works for players.
I'm not sure whether to laugh hysterically or throw up.
23  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: Misplaced Graves on: 2009 July 23, 20:44:52
Dead Sims can probably be found in the Mausoleum (graveyard rabbithole), but you need to be a 'loved one' of the deceased.
In my experience, this is the case most of the time. However, I have ended up with the odd gravestone of a sim that none of my sims have ever met, and one time my playable sim's mother (who lived on another lot) died and her grave simply did not appear anywhere.
24  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: I would like a Smoking Mod - Can it be done? on: 2009 July 23, 19:39:50
You don't even need a mod to simulate smoking in Sims 3.  Just do what I do.

Pick a smoker. 

This sim must spend a fixed amount of money per day on useless crap and then delete it.
This sim is only allowed to bathe every 3rd day.
This sim is completely restricted from having the Genius or Great Kisser traits and MUST take the Loser trait.
This sim must be killed off before they turn into an Elder.

There you go.  An accurate simulation of smoking in Sims 3 without even having to make a mod!


Ahahah, that made me lol. Just a few suggestions, though:

Realistically, only 1/3 of them would need to be killed off before becoming an Elder.
Deleting items returns your money; it'd be better to have some sort of repository so that when you buy something, you can then delete the items you bought 4 days ago, to actually lose the money properly.
Or just shove it in the inventory, where it can clog everything up much like in real life.
25  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: Why does slutty slacker grandma get to bring the baby to the cake? on: 2009 July 23, 18:08:51
I've also experienced elders getting priority in bringing babbys to caek in several households. It's quite annoying for pictures actually, when some other sim than the one you want in the picture simply MUST do it instead.
