Ah, so it's the rounded corners that are the culprits! Damn. I liked them, too.

I've tried removing that part of the pool, and the square would remain. I'd remove the flooring, and it would remain. I could build a pool all around the square, but that looked stupid, like a fluorescent green island. I guess I'm going to have to grow one of those shrubs that grow in cement on the edges of pools. You know, like what you'd do in real life if a bright green square suddenly appeared on your property.

Realism? Screw that.  Tongue

That's pretty much how I feel about this green square thing. Ouch.

I've had the building tool get stuck, before, so now I make sure before I go back into gameplay, I switch to the "hand grab tool thingy".

I hope I'm not being too technical, here.  Cheesy

I swear I searched, but I didn't even know what search terms to use, so it was fruitless. "Green build mode thingy"?

This problem has followed me from my old laptop. I have no idea what it is, and the only "solution" I had for it before was to exit the lot without saving when I saw it appear. Unfortunately, I seemed to have missed it during my most recent save, so now it's stuck on my lot.

This pool was built MONTHS ago. I have not added onto it or modified it at all. I don't even know if I've been in build mode, recently. Seemingly out of nowhere, the bright green that shows up when you're building a pool, or selecting land to level, shows up on the corner, while in play mode. Most times it's this corner. Sometimes it's 3 corners. Sometimes it's two. But it cannot be built on, deleted, 'sploded with the stuck objects remover, or lot debuggerified. It just. won't. go. away.

Any clues?

Oh, cool, glad you found that one! I wonder if it's the same one I found?

*a little more than tired right now

Let me know how it works for you!
6  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Pet Animations on: 2007 December 10, 06:16:38
I believe I have such a hack in my game. I'll look right now and see if I can find it.

Edit:

Grrr. Can't find it, but it's late and I'm half-asleep. I KNOW I've seen one, though. I thought I had it downloaded, too, but maybe I was on my work computer when I found it. I'll keep looking, because it's something I could use, too.

shh, he meant TS3


I know, I just like to yank his chain.   Wink
8  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Idea: "Arousal" meter on: 2007 November 26, 07:00:18
Suggest it for TS2.

That's what he was doing, silly Pes.

It would be a really cool idea, though.
9  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: high texture detail, crappy clothes details on: 2007 November 17, 20:31:37
Well, considering the card was weak and my cc folder was not...I'm thinking the card lost the fight. And I had overheating issues with that machine, as well. Not a good gaming rig.
10  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: high texture detail, crappy clothes details on: 2007 November 17, 19:35:58
You need to set your in-game resolution to something that is proportional with your actual screen aspect ratio, or else everything will end up looking warped.

Well, I haven't had the problem on the macbook pro. I just had to get used to seeing my sims as they were supposed to look.  Tongue

I also haven't had the blurry clothes issue since the laptop I had when I made those posts back in 2006. That was a HP zv5240us or something like that. It had an Ati Radeon 9000, which was crap. After that, I got a Winbook with an ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 with 128 dedicated, and had no issues with blurry clothes. The card in my mac is pretty good, so I'm guessing the blurry-clothes issue I had was because of my crapola graphics card back then? 
11  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: high texture detail, crappy clothes details on: 2007 November 17, 04:15:19
I "randomly" had this problem back on my old laptop, and the texture of the blurred clothes would appear a bit better on a lower graphics setting. It was very frustrating. The grass was blurry, some of the clothing (but not all!) was blurry, and objects were clear as day. There was a thread about it here a long time ago, but I don't think anyone ever came up with a real answer. Sometimes rebooting would clear it up for me, but the problem would still sporadically occur.  Undecided

Edit:

Yes, it's been posted here, and I posted pics from when it was happening in my game in this thread.

(Heh - OT, that's when I had a weird resolution, and all my sims looked wide. I thought they looked "normal" back then. I play those same sims, still, and they're much thinner on my mac. Tongue )

It looks like it's been removed from MTS2, but can be found at Insim here.
13  TS2: Burnination / Planet K 20X6 / Re: More Awful Than You! November: "Fucked up Make-up!" on: 2007 November 01, 23:42:10
I've never entered anything in one of these contests, before, but I have seen SO MUCH bad makeup...where to start??

How about here?

The eyes, people! The eyes! I know the lips are even worse, but I can't find them!

14  TS2: Burnination / Oops! You Broke It! / Re: Same error, different data. Seasons won't load. on: 2007 October 20, 03:04:47
What about deleting groups.cache before restarting? Have you tried that?
15  TS2: Burnination / Oops! You Broke It! / Re: Sims stuck on vacation on: 2007 October 16, 04:31:45
I've got a house in Pleasantview that is now unplayable (unlit plumbob overhead in n'hood view) because the game is convinced the family is still on vacation. Only half the household went on vacation, they got stuck via the taxi-takes-them-right-back-on-vacation-after-bringing-them-home glitch (with the taxi refusing to show back up at the vacation property after they made the call to return home), and I ended up teleporting them into another lot in Pleasantview, and moving them in, as Kat suggested. The vacation house (Brickstone Chateau in Twikkii Island) is now uninhabited, but the original Pleasantview house is still unplayable, even though there are about 5 sims living in that house that never even went on the vacation. I had the owner of the vacation lot sell the property (he was one of the stuck sims), but that didn't free the Pleasantview lot, either.

I do not have the patch installed because...I don't know, at this point. How much more problematic can things get?  Tongue

I couldn't even read that without getting tongue-tied.  Lips sealed
17  TS2: Burnination / The War Room / Re: Energy Decay and BV on: 2007 October 06, 21:20:06
The Seashells are particularly sadistic because the Prima Guide publishes the lie that they decrease bladder decay, when, in fact, they do the opposite. And with them, Brynne has an accident on a nearly hourly basis. Tongue

Yeah, and I'm pretty pissed off about it, too. Har, har, har.
* Brynne kicks the seashells
18  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Judgement Call: Bon Voyage on: 2007 October 05, 11:16:29
Oops, my bad. I forgot which of my sims have the skill, and which don't.   Tongue

Yes, Sea Chantey does show up.
19  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Judgement Call: Bon Voyage on: 2007 October 05, 10:45:59
I do have antivacationactions, and it did cut the autonomy. But it doesn't show in the pie menu as an option.
20  TS2: Burnination / Oops! You Broke It! / Re: Has anyone used Omega Drivers? on: 2007 October 05, 10:37:17
You're running at the bare minimum specs (especially for Seasons! Wow), so I would definitely up your RAM. I think the lowest I ever played with was 512 mb, back with just the base game, and it was almost unplayable once I added cc. Now I play with 2 Gigs (different computer) and it runs like a dream. Your graphics card could be upgraded, as well. I think 128 mb dedicated is the minimum recommended video memory. This will give you an idea of what you're looking at.
21  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Judgement Call: Bon Voyage on: 2007 October 05, 07:04:18
I won't let any of them learn the sea chanty etc. until I can find a hack that stompinates them to my satisfaction, because I know that's something that would drive me insane.


Aww, you don't want a continuous stream of

Ro ho ho, a lipey liber nee
smailing ferney silder
Life is but a dream

Uh, okay. I don't remember the rest.  Tongue
22  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Judgement Call: Bon Voyage on: 2007 October 05, 03:37:36
I'll bet they can once someone makes that non-autonomous, but still in the pie menu. (Edited to finish this sentence! )

This is what happens when you take away the Sea Chantey skill while they're singing. Sim me sounds totally hammered.

And this is why I wanted them to stop.  Tongue (There's even peeing in this one! I turned the camera away, but then they started singing in the bathroom.  Lips sealed )

edit: the video is jerky because I was filming on high settings with sound enabled. It doesn't do that in gameplay.
23  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Judgement Call: Bon Voyage on: 2007 October 05, 03:01:36
The lag problem almost seems to be a random issue. I've seen people with higher specs than me saying they have lag. I haven't had any lag whatsoever, and I play on a laptop! It's a macbook pro, mind you, so it's a pretty powerful one, but still. My game loads faster than ever, with over 6 Gigs of cc. The only time there's any lag is when one of my sims is getting a sunburn or a tan, but it's just a few seconds. Doesn't bother me, much.

The launcher is easily bypassed. The most annoying thing about that, to me, was that I was used to clicking the shortcut icon, and going to get a drink or something and coming back to find my game loading. With the launcher, I'd come back to find I was supposed to have hit "play". That's what made me bypass the launcher, not any of the spyware talk. Yeah, I'm goofy like that. Tongue 

I've had the same bugs I've seen documented elsewhere: the taxi taking off for vacation, again, as soon as it drops the family off at home (my sims don't just camp, they re-re-re-re camp!), not being able to walk to other lots, things like that (many of which have fixes, now). And the same annoyances: ENDLESS sandcastle building. Thank god for no autonomy hacks. My sims were wanting to go build sandcastles in a friggin' thunderstorm, and I had to lock them in their house. Bwahahaha... I played with free will off most off the time to stop that Sea Chantey obsession.

But, all in all, I love, love LOVE this EP. BV is, IMHO, the best EP since Nightlife. I have become so addicted to the game, again. Unfortunately, I have very little time to actually play it. I'm still at my office right now, and it's almost 11 pm. I'm jonesin'. Seriously.

That's nice. Shouldn't you go follow him now, and go away? And take your little friends with you, seeing as you hate it here so much? Not much keeping you here, is there? So shoo.

THOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!

You're so funny. So are your little wannabes.  Kiss
