1  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: Ambitions: What's borked on: 2010 June 18, 00:39:06
I've had serious trouble with the world editor. Removing lots causes them to no longer be plašable, even in the exact spot upon which they used to be placed; Rarely can other lots be put there, either. This was near the beach, so the ground was not entirely flat, but it was not exactly steep, either. The error was always "can't be placed on other lots", although if it was too large it did object to being in the water.

This was in the Fuzzy Pumpkin's neighbourhood (Dragon Cay), so it may be something to do with the way it's structured. (I guess technically this is a problem with the patch and not Ambitions, though, since I'm running basegame until this torrent finishes.)

This could be me remembering wrong, but is it not a feature of AM to encourage running whenever possible? Pescado has always been of the persuasion that running is the master race.

I can't seem to find it in the rtfm, but my Sims seem to run often, and I'm running basegame. In any case, it seems more of a feature than a bug. Who wants slow sims?

For a second I thought this was a font that you were referring to.

* Faafy goes off to look for this font

Once when I was 12, I turned in an essay written in Comic Sans just to see what would happen.  Unfortunately (or, perhaps, fortunately for my grade) nothing did.  My high school teachers had no backbone.

Oh god, Comic Sans. I was asked to revise an essay once that was written entirely in Comic Sans. I put a big red pen line through the cover page and upon it wrote "DIFFERENT FONT". I got out of it by saying that their teacher wouldn't accept the paper. But in reality, they probably would have. I just want to see that font dead.

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!

 Wink

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.
After WooHoo, roll a 20-sided die. If they get a 1, set their bed on fire.

Since I'm a skill whore, I find that genius can be useful, as getting your Logic skill up more quickly means getting your other skills (aside from Charisma and Body) up more quickly as well. Bookworm can be useful if you skill from books, though the speed boost isn't always noticeable.

The boosts that lucky gives are pretty negligible compared to the fun that unlucky provides. Indestructibility is useful in high-risk households.

Jordi-

A cash cow can be milked for as long as people will pay for the product, e.g. Pokemon. However, Pokemon remains, at least the main vein, to improve on something and keep up a standard. While there are failures and issues, for the most part, it's still an enjoyable game. Electronic Arts seems to believe the passion for the games by its communities will keep it afloat. As the all glorious Pescado has shown, we can fix though mods what EA doesn't.

Has EA capitalized on this and just sent out something that works better when tweaked by others than the stand alone?

They've found that the sheeple simply don't care. Why would you bother holding up the standard when you'll make millions off it regardless?

There is, however, something to be said about certain evolutions that should really be repressed for the sake of sanity, such as the movement that exists in high school environments known as "I should be allowed to spell things however I want, since languages are always changing". Usually, I just direct them to the works of Geoffrey Chaucer.

Sims: other sim on the path (obstacle).  less lambada

Am I the only one who giggled profusely at this?
9  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / Facts & Strategery / Re: A special breed on: 2009 July 15, 14:49:48
Moreover, we must find a way to make it a standard feature. Grimspawn are delicious.

I know of English teachers and school principals whose grasp of the language could make you cry.  And they're teaching the next generation!

My English teacher in Grade 10 tried to teach us "would of". Go ahead, it's okay. You can cry.

It's fairly normal for pregnancies to last a couple of days. I'm not entirely sure about this, but having the game on longer lifespans might extend the pregnancy, as well - what setting do you have them on?

My Sims are all Loners. It seems to make them pretty happy. I just love how adorable they look when they get nervous in crowds.

13  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: What did you do with the Wolff family? on: 2009 July 13, 00:21:17
I have to hear more of this neighborhood. That is pure comedy.

There's a disappointing lack of spontaneous revenge-taking on my Gold-digger; while Thornton is her first kill, she's cheerfully interfered in five or six other relationships, and so far I haven't even observed a flamingo-kicking or a trashcan-dumping.

...

I'm betting quite a long time, so it's the kind of game where I'll probably set it to run when I'll be AFK for a while (although the opportunity / phone pop-ups are likely to make that problematic).

Everything you just said. MOAR OF IT PLES. That is pure gold; I'm totally going to be trying this.
14  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: Stupid Suicidal Sims on: 2009 July 13, 00:10:42
Yes, actually, I was quite pleasantly surprised by the fact that the entire game doesn't stop to load a single thing. It'd slow to a crawl if it did. It seems like they actually did get something right here.

Not really because it reaches the point where my sim is actually dying by the time it's loaded...

Sometimes I find that the performance can change arbitrarily. Despite my best empirical efforts, I've yet to isolate the cause, but sometimes it happens after having just had a virus scan, from all I can tell. Sometimes I can barely run the game on fullscreen, other times, I can have Firefox running YouTube and be talking on my chat program at the same time. Try restarting your computer and brutally murdering background tasks until the pants are dead - that could help.

I don't see how the Bisexual Circus thing is a negative. Maybe I'm just a deviant, but everyone being bisexual sounds... cool.

* Faafy does not disagree.
16  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: Moodlets + Six Bars vs. Eight Bars on: 2009 July 09, 01:35:29
I may be wrong about this, and I know that the game in general is counter to this idea, but it seems as though the moodlet system also leaves things a bit open-ended, i.e. perhaps some mods could make interesting use of it.
17  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: The Sims 3 Expansion In My Head on: 2009 July 09, 01:29:52
Yes, apparently I went a bit over the top with that one. My apologies. I was going for the whole "discontented sheep is discontented" feel. I was in accordance with your point that the game does have a lot of complexity as is.

*begins mopping up the puddles around the pumpkin's meter*
18  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: I would like a Smoking Mod - Can it be done? on: 2009 July 08, 16:52:01
Perhaps an interaction (Maybe for Good, Genius and/or Family-Oriented Sims) that lets you smack cigarettes out of people's hands if you have a high enough relationship score with them. Sim apathy is boring.

Although, personally, I wouldn't put cigarettes in my game for the same reason I don't need fundies going around lynching my gay sims. I'm perfectly content leaving behind some realism for the sake of enjoyment.
19  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: The Sims 3 Expansion In My Head on: 2009 July 08, 16:26:27
Splotch?
You people all eat funny. This is why it takes you so long to finish.


Actually, I aphotosynthesize. I generate food through not being exposed to sunlight.

Are you sure you don't want to simply play Splotch?

Precisely! They should have programmed in Splotch on top of the existing game. And this time, they should do it RIGHT, dammit. And you know why this didn't happen? Those lazy developers not programming in the obvious missing details.
20  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: The Sims 3 Expansion In My Head on: 2009 July 08, 03:30:16
And just how many variations should there be? At what point is it too much? The base game is already over 5 gigs, comparable to a gig and a half for TS2 basegame. Add animations to the level that you seem to want, and you're talking about a game almost double the size.

In the end, you'll still whine that they are too predictable and that the differences are too small. Newsflash: sims are code bits and pixels. You will not get the level of complexity you seem to crave from code bits and pixels anytime this century.

Shut the hell up, pumpkin. We're having a mature conversation here. Now, what I don't like is the fact that all Sims eat the same way. I know plenty of people who were born in the same location, but some use the American style of keeping the fork in one hand, and others, the European style of setting the knife down and putting the fork in the dominant hand. It's ridiculous, and their eating styles are being given no personalization whatsoever. I also dislike the fact that all of my Sims use the exact same aging-up animations. Dammit, a daredevil Sim should leap while age-transitioning, not just do that spinning around crap. And why don't my Pyros knock down their birthday candles and set the tables on fire? Lastly, I think we should be able to actually follow our Astronaut Sims to work. They could have set us up a moon base, created a couple of planets, randomly generated atmospheres, different flora and fauna... Damn those lazy developers.

That's not a glitch, that's a feature. Your rejection of the grimspawn is offensive to wiccans.
23  TS2: Burnination / Peasantry / Re: Steampunkish Servos on: 2009 July 07, 01:44:19
Oh crap, my thread's alive again. Thanks for covering my ass, Tsari, I didn't have those files anymore! Glad people are enjoying them enough to come back for them six months later, in any case.

The headpeen has managed to start being inconsistent within the space of a single post. That must be some sort of new record.

I fail to see how the two statements are inconsistent.  The first is pointing out that (rake in face!) X no Y cannot ever be translated as X of Y/Y's X (e.g. Neko no ai -> Cat of Love).  The second statement is a general truism about all languages.

If it's true of all languages, I fail to see why it shouldn't be for Japanese. The alternate translations that were provided are (almost) all identical in meaning, so unless you're insisting that there are direct, coherent translations for Japanese phrases into English, they would be acceptable. Either way, I think one of your statements is rendered objectively invalid.
25  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: Cannot delete custom recolours on: 2009 July 06, 15:31:48
This is wild speculation, but if your game isn't running the procedure due to an inability to bring up the confirmation dialogue (for whatever reason), you could try using AwesomeMod on expert mode. It bypasses "are you sure" dialogues.
