1176  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: File Management - renaming files, meshes and FBVFOS on: 2005 December 13, 03:01:33
because of the mess in the downloads folder (before NL) I got rid of most of my downloads and all hair/newmeshs and clothes/newmeshs. I then refused to download anything that used a new mesh and ignored anything to do with custom hair. (sorting out stuff that didn't even work was a huge headache!)

The other day after downloading and installing LindaEtterlees self-sim, I checked out her self-sims custom hair and wow! custom hair has come along way! I loved it but I removed it and then I realized that with NL I can actually allow myself to have custom hair again! *went on a downloading spree*  currently quite a few custom hair files are neatly sorted in subfolders within subfolders by creator (and in the case of of one creator - Kaver - also sorted by male/female)

Unless you have paysite stuff that you know you can't redownload then I suggest you save yourselves a huge headache (and many many hours) an just remove your downloads folder and redownload what you really really want.  (Don't just delete your Downloads folder! you may have some favorites that are no longer available)

In the case of a Bodyshop item that you can't live without and don't remember were it came from (that has only numbers for a name) then you can always export it in Bodyshop as a new project and give it a good name(if it had a name in the tooltip then you can use that)  and then import it again and delete the other.
1177  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Zombies and SimPE on: 2005 December 13, 02:08:00
InSIM (SIM version) - currently using it with over a hundred other hacks without any conflicts...

As for zombies, I believe you can use InSIM to switch them to zombie and back again but as I have never bothered with zombies I'm not really sure  Undecided


EDIT - went a looked at the InSIM info

Quote
Click on the RIGHT section of the InSIMenator Machine (the super computer) and you will get some miscellaneous options.

1misc option is - Life state - Change a sim from zombie to sim or sim to zombie (University specific). Turn your sim into a vampire or cure vampirism (Nightlife specific)

35 Lucky Lane - $64,919 - app 6 bedrooms and app 4 bathrooms (with 1 wall added it could have 7 bedrooms)

45 Lucky Lane - $41,801 - app 7 bedrooms and app 3 bathrooms

I say "app" cause there are some rooms that be used as bedrooms or study/rec rooms or whatever (their bigger then 4x4) and some rooms can be used as a bathroom or a very small bedroom. Both Lots have plenty of room inside and out.

unfurnished (sorry but I have very bad dialup so mine are always unfurnished)

The more expensive one dosen't have room for a garage(sp?) but I know you can fit atleast 4 driveways. I haven't moved anyone into the other one yet so I don't know how driveways will fit.
1179  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Request: Object to add family ties in game on: 2005 December 13, 01:25:53
The InSIM is not the evil one. The really Less Awesome hack also begins with an "In", is hosted on the same forums as the InSIM, and will cause a BFBVFS guaranteed. Can you guess it's name? *CoInTeenimaterugh*.

I've had the InSim in my game since the base game, and no problems yet.


Why do you say InTEEN will cause a BFBVFS?


Edit to mention that I also agree that a "Object to add family ties in game" is a great idea!
1180  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: best way to make them know they're family? on: 2005 December 13, 01:06:00
*giggles at the dirty old sim comment*


I've always thought that Maxis set the cousin thing up so that distant cousins would be able to marry and stuff for those that play with large familys but don't want a million sims in their neighborhoods...
1181  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Skins glitch on: 2005 December 12, 05:05:27
it's not just a MAC version issue, I've had the same problem on my PC, it drove me freakin nuts!! I think I ended up killing off the family it happened to...
1182  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: So whats in your wallet? errrr I mean folder on: 2005 December 12, 04:49:35
Although I will get the next EP as soon as it's available, I will wait to install it until certain hackers have it and get atleast some of my favorite mods tested/updated *laughs* unless I decide to test them myself to see what still works! My daughter will want me to install it ASAP on the computer she is allowed to use so I can always watch her check it out and I can always let her do some testing... Wink  It sucks that I always have to buy 2 copys, maybe soon I'll get lucky and she won't be interested in TS2 anymore...  Roll Eyes

Bad me, I added more hacks today  Grin  more of JMs, had to check the list about 1 and discovered a bunch I had forgotten to grab  Shocked  I now have 45 of his!
1183  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Request: Baby Last Name on: 2005 December 11, 19:24:45
I love that movie, I wonder if you could google it and get the "brides" names to? I could never keep the brothers or brides straight *laughs*
1184  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: ran away help on: 2005 December 11, 19:21:15
*giggles* from what I've read - You can have a adult sim in that family call the cops about the runaway (the sooner you call the better I think) and they should find her and return her, she ran away because her relationship with her "family" was really bad and she may run away again (right away) unless you can get the relationship up quick enough. Otherwise she should return just before she ages to adult :\


1185  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: my game is messed up on: 2005 December 11, 19:01:25
I've never even seen Ms Crumplebottom because I have TwoJeffs "NPC & Visitor Zapper" and she is banned by default, haven't used the Zapper for any other sim yet but I heard enough about Ms Crumplebottom that I knew I didn't want her anywhere near my sims!!!
1186  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: So whats in your wallet? errrr I mean folder on: 2005 December 11, 18:44:09
I ended up adding Inge Jones - "TeleporterShrubPlus" and her "sensible study bookcase" (works great!)

Some of the hacks I have do stuff another does but in a different way ie; the teleportershrubplus - I can use InSIM to teleport sims in But I can't "put up for adoption" so that makes it worth having both Wink  (I use InSIM for some of the stuff that others use SimPE for, like adjusting interests/personality/asp+turnons\off etc...)


Alot of the hacks I have "fix" bugs or annoying behavior like the baby harassment - right now I'm using Inge Jones "less autonomy babycare" but once JM gets nobabyharassment updated then I will switch back to it.


I am very picky about what hacks I install and I try not to download any that will conflict with ones I already have. I keep a very organized "NL Compat Hacks" folder Wink and my hacks are all organized in subfolders by creators in my Downloads folder. I keep an eye out in-game for any conflicts and last night I played for app 7 hours without any problems but I didn't have time to check all of crammys stuff (didn't have time to go to a C lot)

I play and/or build, depending on how I'm feeling.

twojeffs will tell you that that is not possible. The trips and quads hack only comes into play when a sim is giving birth, and once it sets how many babys are to be born (and named) its part is done

well, that is good to know because I love that mod.   Smiley

I love it too Smiley but I usually don't let myself use it much now *laughs*  (was a tester way back when at mts2 starting with the first available version twojeffs released)

1190  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: my game is messed up on: 2005 December 10, 18:57:32

as for the baby fight, I think it had to do with the quads and triplet mod,



twojeffs will tell you that that is not possible. The trips and quads hack only comes into play when a sim is giving birth, and once it sets how many babys are to be born (and named) its part is done, it dosen't affect anything else and can be removed at any time.
1191  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Homes? Where do you download them? on: 2005 December 09, 01:11:33
I have some over at http://www.insimenator.net (Community Downloads section) the "affordable" ones (under $20,000) are all on smaller lots, all of them are unfurnished and clean of hacks.

--

'Twas the night before Cat-mas and all through MY house,
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse...(I ate it).
My kitty stocking was hung by the cat door with care,
In hopes that Santa Claws soon would be there;
The humans were nestled all snug in their beds,
While we cats in the darkness danced on their heads;
Big Owner in his "sleepy's", and me his loyal cat,
Had just settled down for a long winter's nap,
When out in the 'hood there arose such a clatter,
I sprang to four paws to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Eating curtains and shades (I threw up the sash).
The street lamp outside shined eerily below,
Maybe two cats fighting?  Paw to paw, blow-by-blow?
No, wait!  What my sharp kitty eyes should detect,
But a miniature cat box, and that Devonshire Rex.
A little old driver, all hairy with paws,
I knew in an instant it must be Santa Claws.
More rapid than hairballs his coursers they came,
And he howled, he meowed, he called them by name;
"Now, BOMBAY! now, BIRMAN! RAGDOLL and BURMESE!

On, PIXIE-BOB! on KORAT!, on PERSIAN and SIAMESE!
To the top of the fence! To the top of the tree!
My felines are awaiting, they are all purring!"
As dry heaves that before the wild furballs fly,
When he meets with an obstacle, they jump to the sky,
So over my shingles the kitties they flew,
With the carriage full of cat morsels, and Santa Claws too.
With a turn of my ear, I heard on the roofpole
The scratching and clawing of each kitty's sole.
I drew in my head, and was spinning around,
When through the cat door Santa Claws did abound.
A long hair in fur, of course, from head to foot,
And his hairs were all shiny, well coiffured, nicely put.
A bundle of cat toys he had flung on his back,
You'd swear he was pedigree just him with his pack.
His eyes -- how they twinkled!  His whiskers how bold!
His cheek hairs so soft, his nose...oh, how cold!
He shed not a hair, each strand in its place
The most famous of all of the proud feline race.
The stump of some cat nip he held tight in his teeth,
Its aroma encircling his head like a wreath;
An imposing cat with the biggest belly in history,
That shook, when he laughed like a bowlful of Friskies.
A grimalkin of breed, a right jolly old cat!
Did I say grimalkin, how could I think that!
A twitch of the whisker and a twist of his head,
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread;
He mewed not a sound, but went straight to his work,
Filled my stockings with kitty treats; then turned with a
jerk,
And laying a talon aside of his nose,
After giving a nod, out the cat door he goes;
He sprang to his cat box, to his team gave "MEOW!"
And away they all flew, like the wind they did howl.
But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,
"MEOWY CAT-MAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD-NIGHT!"

eaglezero - in NL you can also go directly to the community lot you want Smiley  you don't have to go first to downtown and then pick the lot (same for the neighborhood now also) unless you want to Wink and of course if your sims have a car then they don't have to wait for the stupid taxi either! *also hated community lots before* 
1194  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Is there a fix or cure for this on: 2005 December 07, 03:06:54
I always have problems finding the date I downloaded something these days, I just get modified on such and such when all I did was open the folder it's in!

when I download a new hack (or a new version) it goes in a new subfolder for that hacker/modder and I now put the versions # or the date I downloaded it as part of the name of the subfolder, found it helped me keep track of them better cause I always keep the older versions "just in case"
1195  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: MATY Neighbourhood update? on: 2005 December 07, 02:58:27
I think #9 would be fine for most people, currently I have only 3 and actually only use 1 but then I did just back after a long break (which explains my low post count/date of joining  lol)  I don't think I've ever downloaded a neighborhood before(my dial-up connection really sucks) but I am really interested in this one so I plan to download it even if it takes hours!  Smiley

I don't know if I'll have time to make anything new to contribute but I have some "affordable" (under $20,000) Lots up for downloading over at  http://www.insimenator.net (in the Community Downloads section) that can be used if any appeal to you guys (done before I got NL)

runs TS2/UNI/NL great Wink  This is MY baby, noone else is allowed to use it! 

I have another thats about a year old that my daughter is allowed to use, it runs TS2/UNI/NL really well and she has rarely managed to crash the game (shes 12 and does all sorts of stuff to her sims)  and shouldn't have any problems with future TS2 EPs but I don't have the specs on hand so I can't list them, spent app. $2,000 on it and my alienware baby was app. $4,000.

I'm not rich *is actually very poor* but I "came into some money" when I got my SSI back and knew I needed to replace my ancient computer (which TS2 never would have worked on and I doubt TS1 would have worked on it either) so I choose to spend the money and get the best I could since it will be a long time before I can afford to buy another new one.
1197  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Default Replacement Skins on: 2005 December 06, 20:35:56

If I remember right I had the texture/exporting problem with both CC and Maxis clothes and I know exactly whats in my Downloads folder since I have spent many hours cleaning it up (took forever to find all the clothes + makeup that didn't work!)
