1  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: NEVER FORGET! BLUESOUP HAS FAILED US DAY! on: 2008 March 27, 18:31:05
I was a regular poster at BLS--and found it to be a great community.  I didn't talk much to Blue Soup, but I talked to the other people there.  I was very sad when she closed it, and I haven't been a "regular poster" at a forum for a long time.  I have no idea what went on behind the scenes or what caused the drama of "Blue Soup Failed Us."  It's none of my business and I really don't give a kitty--but I was very disapointed in her for closing down BLS.

Hey!  Bigfoot made pork chops!  ROTF!  I don't know why that is funny to me, but it is.

Insim allows you to change a sims first name. 

I've taken mine out since it hasn't been updated for FT.  I'm afraid to try it, even though I've read over there that some folks have had no adverse effects on their game. 
4  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: How does the game choose the "one hobby" on: 2008 March 16, 14:06:36
The majority of my Sims are either Arts and Crafts, Tinkering, or Music and Dance.  Since Seasons is my favorite EP, all of my families have orchards, greenhouses, and/or fishing ponds on their lots.  So, they run up more "enthusiasm points" for the Nature Hobby, but then want to go tinker or paint all the time. 

I did buy one of my farmer-dads the junked car and have been letting him tinker on it.  His daughter is a teenager, and I thought it would be a nice present to her for college.  He's a family sim and he and the daughter are close.  Just a little realism for my game, I guess.  LOL
5  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: EA/Maxis has found the Nvidia problem! on: 2008 March 16, 13:52:56
I find this all very interesting.  I am also having problems with nVidia since I installed BV, but no BSoD, just a lot of graphic artifacts and distortions.
Artifacts and distortions that appear over time are generally a sign of overheating.

They don't appear over time.  They'll show up at random times, and sometimes from the neighborhood screen when I first open the 'hood.  Sad  Worse when I use shaders or camera mods.  I've tried to snap screenshots to post here and ask how to fix, but every screenshot I've taken does not show the distrotion.  The flash of the camera corrects the problem.  LOL  I guess I could use Print Screen, just hadn't thought about it. 

Okay, when I Alt-Ctrl-Delete it shows that I have 70 processes going.  I remember back in the olden days of TS1 there was a program that would cut off all the unnecessary background programs so that the game would run a little smoother.  Is that what this Black Viper program does, Kat?  Or, is there another program out there that does this?  I know that I do not need 70 processes going. . . and I don't know what is necessary and what is not.  It would seem that all I'd need in reality are the "System" processes, right?

I'm still sitting here LMAO at crotchfruit, HP!!!  That was precious!  Next time I yell at my kids, I'm gonna use that one!   Wink (j/k)

And, please do not call yourself stupid.  I did the exact same thing yesterday and now have a new baby named "Baby Boy Pofolk".  The bad thing was that the Mom was already pregnant and was a day away from giving birth.  Since I have a shortage of male babies in my neighborhood I let him stay, but since the Mom was pregnant and miserable already, childcare was not a joy!  LOL
7  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Crammy's Penis and FreeTime on: 2008 March 16, 13:30:00
I downloaded some user files from KKK's "Tasty" line that work match up really well with some of the more detailed skins.  Right now I'm using Navesta's new default skins from InSim Adult and KKK's files still look good.  Oh, I got KKK's files at InSim Adult, too.  Smiley

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. . . thank so much to Crammyboy for sharing his naughty bits with us!  Smiley

9  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: EA/Maxis has found the Nvidia problem! on: 2008 March 13, 22:21:12
I find this all very interesting.  I am also having problems with nVidia since I installed BV, but no BSoD, just a lot of graphic artifacts and distortions.  They are much worse after a longer period of gameplay.  I do not use Nortons, I use McAfee, and have always found it to be bloated and a major pain in my backside! 
10  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Abandonated Mods Needing Updates for Free Time on: 2008 March 04, 23:56:46
Didn't Monique move over to Insiminator?  That's where I get all her stuff.   
11  TS2: Burnination / Oops! You Broke It! / Graphic Problem--Is this a Nvidia problem or do I just need to update my driver? on: 2008 March 02, 14:08:42
Hi there.  I have done a search and I see that the nVidia graphic cards and TS2 do not play well together.  I'm having an issue since I installed BV.  Every once in a while, I'll get an graphical glitch where the pixels will form a straight line that can be seen straght out to the neighborhood view and, I'm presuming, into the Simmy-sky!  This glitch happens with or without custom content installed.  I first noticed it with a high poly hair file (either Peggy's or Rose's, I can't keep up with who made what LOL) so I removed the high poly hair files from my hair bin. 

My husband and I share our computer, and we both play game on it.  I sim, and he plays FEAR and Call of Duty games.  He updated the drivers for FEAR, and it caused my Sims Game to crash at the neighborhood screen.  I came here a showed him several posts that said that the new nVidia drivers were not compatible with TS2, so grudgingly he went back to an older driver.  My game no longer crashes at the neighborhood screen, but I still get the occasional line-glitch.  Hubby says that FEAR just doesn't play well, and hasn't played it since. 

So, what I'm looking for is a happy medium--what's a nVidia driver that will run both my games and his games well without problmes?  I found a simple but expensive solution for right now--I bought Hubby a PS3 for Valentine's Day, and he's been happily addicted to Portals on the "Orange Box". 

Okay, I'm running a nVidia GeForce 7900 GE graphic card on a Dell XPS 400, Windows XP SP2, Pentium 4 3.2 gig processor.  I have all the games from the base game to Free Time and all stuff packs installed.  It looks like the driver that Hubby has installed right now is 6.14, or at least that's what it says on the nVidia control pannel.   I need to get a screenshot of the glitch in action. . . I thought I had one but I can't locate it now.  I will take another one in game and edit my post later. 

12  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Odd Character Files on: 2008 February 24, 15:54:36
eevilcat:

Not meaning to hijack the thread or anything. . . but, do you really have 13 hoods?  I noticed that this neighborhood is #12 and you also have Riverblossom Hills, so that's 13.  Do you play them all, or are they test hoods?  I was just curious.  I don't play the Maxian Hoods, can barely manage to keep my own hood organized and straight.  LOL  If you are running 13 hoods, I'm really impressed.  Smiley
13  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Trailer trash/ Chav names on: 2008 February 16, 13:54:29
Most of these Chav type names are fairly common, boring names in the US. Danny, Kyle, Jason, Sam, Ryan and Lee? Those are pretty standard names. And while Aiden is uncommon, it is an actual boy's name, and not something made up.

I'm thinking I still don't get what a Chav is. Someone pretentious? Is it a "new money" type thing? People in the middle class who follow stupid trends? Because it doesn't seem to fit with illiterate redneck/trailer-trash very well.


Aiden/Aidan:
http://www.behindthename.com/name/aidan
http://www.behindthename.com/name/aodha10n

Is it an Irish thing?

It's Celtic.  My son's name is Aiden Bryce.
14  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Oh bloody hell! on: 2008 February 12, 02:25:40
I run a PC, and I've had this happen.  Sometimes, it seems that every birth I have in the neighborhood is a boy.  Then, for a little while, all girls.  Then, a run of twins.  I don't think that it's because my PC hates me, or that it has too much RAM, or that I'm feeding my sims too much cheesecake.  I think that the game gets stuck on a certain type of birth, and it can be very difficult to break the streak.  One time, tired of having girl after girl, I saved my game right before the mom gave birth, and kept exiting to the neighborhood screen without saving.  After about the 6th or 7th little girl, I gave up.  Sometimes running the Lot Debugger before the birth will help.  It does keep the siblings from being identical.  Before the Lot Debugger, I'd have a whole bunch of Simmy-kids in the family with the same genetics and personalities.  Now, siblings are more realistic.  But, it doesn't always help break the "same birth cycle". 
15  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Trailer trash/ Chav names on: 2008 February 12, 01:52:19
Being from WV, and having one of the afore-mentioned "trailer trash" and/or "stripper" names--(Krystal spelled with an i because my Momma thought it would be different), I pride myself at being an expert on those sorts of names.

Gay or Lee for a middle name.  Stop laughing. . . my grandfather's real, honest to God middle name is Gay.
Claudis, Clovis, Cledus
Dale, Don, Derek, Deke
Emmitt, Eugene  (Emmitt Eugene is actually my husband's cousin's name. . . again, stop laughing), Earl
Billy-Jack, Bobby-Joe, Jimmy-Mack
Roy, Raymond
Jessie
Truman
Maverick

Females:
Eula
Nuvella Lynn
Lovie
Myrtle

16  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: What's in YOUR Downloads? on: 2008 February 12, 01:22:59
Okay, I learned a new computer trick tonight--how to create and use a batch file to make a list!  Smiley  Yes, I am old, and slow, and I went to college for Social Work, not computers. . . so right now I am very proud of myself! You may point and laugh, but I am standing proud. . . and thankful to everyone who gave advice on how to create it.  Okay, enough jabbering, here is my Most Recent Hacks and Mods:

17  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Well-the Unsavoury Charlatan finally showed up. on: 2008 February 10, 13:32:43
I have yet to see him in my game, either.  Damn, I'm dissapointed that he is unplayable. . . I think in my game, I'd let Stella get her groove back with him!  Smiley
18  TS2: Burnination / Peasantry / Re: Love Shack on: 2008 February 09, 16:23:05
The house and Havlock's CC all look beautiful, can't wait to see them in game.  Smiley  Thank you so much. 

Dizzy--Why wouldn't you put a Sim into the house?  I'm curious.  Is it because of the multi-levels?
19  TS2: Burnination / Peasantry / Re: Aner-Dyfan's AwesomeSpec House 1 on: 2008 February 09, 15:39:21
Nice house. . . downloaded.  Smiley  I'll test it today.

Bathrooms:  In a starter house I always have 1 1/2 bathrooms, and in a larger house I have at least two-four using the 1.5 bathrooms to 2 sims ratio. 

20  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Haha - now I *know* EA use SimPE! on: 2007 November 14, 03:00:42
I dunno. I've seen some build items that look exactly like some of Windkeeper's creations, especially her windows (and I don't mean her Maxis-match ones). Then again, I think EA had hired her at some point, so perhaps she gave her own creations over to them.

I have thought the same thing about Windkeeper as well.  The TSR Kudos clocks came out before Pets did, and one of her clocks is almost identical to the one with Pets.
21  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: BV: Anybody Updating These Abandoned Mods? on: 2007 September 16, 18:15:34
#1:  Thank you, thank you, thank you for this thread!  I have been spending more times bouncing around from forum to forum looking for incompatilble hacks than I have actually playing BV.  And, it's good to see that there are people out there playing with more hacks than I do.  LOL

#2:  I have had the room service "bug".  I also have a bug that turns a plum bob into an urn and puts it in a female sim's ummm, neither-regions when she showers at Uni.  But, because of this thread, and one over at InSim,  I now know I was playing with a couple of incompatible mods:  Squinge's maternity clothes hack and Jordi's clothes hiders.  So, if I have it again I'll let y'all know.  I wish I would have taken a screen-shot of my sim in the shower with an urn stuck up there, that was pretty funny.
22  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Missing Mesh on: 2007 June 10, 12:18:57
Warlock has his own section at InSiminator.  He makes many different body shapes, and that site is also a good resource for recolors of his meshes.  Here is the link:  http://www.insimenator.net/forumdisplay.php?f=118
23  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Can the horrible werewolf walk be fixed? on: 2007 June 02, 01:25:53
Ahhh!  The 80's!  That "game that must not be named" meant a lot to me back then.  I married my DM.  LMAO!!

I hate the Werewolf walk, too.   Tongue  It annoys the crap out of me.  I always see my "wolfies" as some sort of strong, dexterious Hollywood movie monster, not some staggering, stumbling freakish creature.  I have really been dispapointed with them. 
24  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: STOP with the dormie assignments! on: 2007 May 02, 23:35:19
Yeah, that's what makes him tollerable, I guess.   Wink  He at least explains why we've done something stupid as he points and laughs.
25  TS2: Burnination / The Podium / Re: Help, my game asploded! on: 2007 May 02, 03:00:05
Well, Sara, that must have been some complaining at Wally-World.  At mine, they just say, "No.  Next?"  and someone moves you out of the way.  If the case to a computer disk has been opened, they do not allow them to be returned. 

Which is why I avoid Wal Mart as much as possible.  (Sigh)

I have the EA game link too, and have GLS, Pets, and Seasons from it.  I have had one issues that caused me to unistall and reinstall the games again.  For some reason, they just stopped loading after a time.  After the reinstall, they worked fine.   :-\But, yeah, it sucks if your internet is down and you'd like to play your game.  It happened to me Sunday.  Our DSL router went down, and it took me an hour on the phone with tech support before I could play.
