This is one of the best looking neighborhoods I've seen out there, but is there a chance of release for a base game-compatible version?  The only thing that possibly compels me to even consider looking at getting WA is the fact that I can't download decent custom worlds like this because the creators all own WA for some reason.  It's not that I'm some cheapskate, I just really, really don't like WA.

I'm still getting a bunch of failed findhome executions and sims moving out of adequate housing only to find they have nowhere to go and get stuck sitting in the homeless pool.  Sometimes, the families are even rich enough and there are enough houses with the correct number of beds for them, but they still experience move failures.  I used to get these messages more often but then it died down, but recently the sims I placed myself and the spawns of my main family branches are getting kicked out of ancestral/nice homes.  Also, when I attempt forcemovein it just affects a single family (probably the ones I had last selected it would seem) and they move to completely empty lots when the homes they were in were just fine. 

I update AM before every play time.  Any ideas  Huh

Really loving the features of ASM though!  I'd rather live with this than have to play vanilla, but I'm hoping someone else has this problem or knows what to do about it. 

This is EAxian in nature - poor genetic mixing. I'm on the 5th generation of one family. I've married in handymen, maids, firemen, townies and more. Every single female looks the same, just with different hair colors. I have some more variation in the males. I have a portrait of each person and I have to do the "view" action to tell who it is because they all look so alike.

Well shoot, I just did some searching on the official BBS and discovered that there are plenty of people complaining of the same problem as me.  I just assumed it had to do something with my own actions (as in installing mods) since my game wasn't always like this.  I have a suspicion that this actually started around the patch release, since it fits into the range that the first sims I noticed this happening to were born in.  I wonder if there is anything to be done about this other than waiting for EA to screw up the game in little ways some more.  Though, for me, this is no longer little.  I need genetic mixing if I'm going to play this game  Embarrassed  It's that or I'll be playing my newest 4th gen sim, who when turned female through CAS is an exact replica of his mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, only with lighter hair and blue eyes.

I'm not entirely sure if this is due to ASM but around the time I started using the driver, most of my sims have been having offspring that more or less are clones of one of the parents (regardless of gender) except for their skin tone, eye color, and hair color.  So basically, there has been practically no variation in facial structure of new sims, except a few who are somewhat a more realistic combination of both parents (i.e. a clone of dad but with mom's lips only.)  I know this sort of thing can occur to an extent in reality, but as it's on such a scale it's getting a little too much.  I'm pretty sure that in the past there had been more mixing going on in my game, as playing around and following genetic lineages are half of the game for me :p  I just wish I could remember where I started noticing this, but it took a while for my sims to age and now I've forgotten.

Also, any new NPCs and townies generated all have the same default faces, though they also have the weight/skin/eye/hair differences.  This I noticed started when I began using IM to repopulate my dead towns, but I've since removed the package and now use ASM on my new hood, and now all new sims are having this problem. 

Really loving the features of ASM though!  I'd rather live with this than have to play vanilla, but I'm hoping someone else has this problem or knows what to do about it.

I've had countless twin and triplet births in my game, and most of the time I prefer to leave the genders up to chance and go through great lengths to make sure the mother doesn't consume any watermelons or apples, having her only eat birthday cakes or that goopy stuff, and not a single one has had a birth of both genders.  I've never tried the trick with consulting a doctor, but I don't think there's any other way for a boy and girl birth to occur.
