Community Wedding Fix for Celebration Wedding Arch (Obsolete in AL/M&G)
« on: 2008 February 14, 22:23:48 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT



At long last, EAxis enabled community wedding in BV, but failed to extend the new feature to the Celebration wedding arch. As stated in this thread, you cannot buy Celebration wedding arch in community lot anymore (because EAxis finally "fixed" the so-called "bug" in collection files that enabled community-only objects to be placed in residential lots, THANK YOU EAXIS), and "Get Married" menu doesn't come up in community lot.

This fix enables community wedding for Celebration wedding arch.

Tested with AnyGameStarter, all EPs installed up to BV.
After the wedding, the honeymoon van picked up newlyweds without a problem.

This fix does not enable community wedding for base game wedding arch, as BV already enabled community wedding for it. If you don't have BV, you may need Squinge's community wedding hack as well. I'm not sure if Squinge's hack is compatible up to Seasons or not.

Works for FreeTime.
Obsolete in AL or M&G. Remove the fix if you have AL or M&G.


Installation:

If you put this fix in Downloads folder, Celebration wedding arch will bear annoying custom star in thumbnail pic, and the delete button will be enabled.
Put it here to avoid custom star and delete button:

 C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Celebration! Stuff\TSData\Res\StuffPack\Objects

 C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Double Deluxe\SP4\TSData\Res\StuffPack\Objects
(for Double Deluxe)


If your latest EP is patched FreeTime, you can put the fix here instead of StuffPack folder:

 C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 FreeTime\TSData\Res\Catalog\Bins
 (or the corresponding folder on your system if your game isn't installed in C:\Program Files)

DO NOT remove z- prefix in the filename. It is for ensuring that this fix is loaded after SP objects, overriding original settings.

Thanks for the fix.

Life! should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO HOO what a ride!'

By the way, FT (or BVp2) seems to have fixed this bug. I went to make a community lot wedding chapel, and put in the CS and base game arches. I had remembered the bug, and that I had forgotten to add this back in. I wanted to go test the lot before exiting the game...lo and behold, all arches had the option.  Shocked

No, FT didn't fix this bug. This fix is not automatically uninstalled by CS uninstaller. You have to manually delete it. If you did a complete uninstall and reinstall, most likely this fix remained where it had been all along.

New EPs often don't even fix the objects from previous EPs, let alone from previous SPs. Unless EA releases a specific patch for Stuff Packs (like Family Fun Stuff Pack patch), you can safely assume that SP objects are not fixed by new EPs. The only stuff pack objects that FT updated are several Teen Style Stuff objects like computer and bookcases, on which they did such a sloppy job that I had to make an additional fix for it too.

Nope, this is in a new neighborhood. I am anal retentive about my Downloads folder and my main hood. Everyone here knows this. I never ever use my main hood or downloads with a new EP. I have a separate Windows account specifically for testing new EPs. It always starts with NO CC whatsoever, then gets the DC. I save my main hood to a different drive completely, uninstall CEP, SimPE, Scriptorium, etc., delete all existing EA folders in ALL My Documents, run a registry cleaner, and start with a fresh EA folder that the game generates. I can assure you that either BVp2 fixed it or FT. It is impossible for it to be anything else unless I have an exceptionally special game.

You didn't say anything about Program Files folder. Did you uninstall the Celebration stuff pack and delete your Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Celebration! Stuff folder completely? Or did you just make a new clean game in testing account, without uninstalling anything?

Because this fix is not supposed to go into Downloads folder in the first place. It should go to Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Celebration! Stuff\TSData\Res\StuffPack\Objects, not the usual My Documents\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\Downloads. Your separate testing account will run the game from the same location as your main account. It just saves game in the different folder. Taking out your Downloads folder from your main account and making a vanilla game from your testing account will not remove this fix. You must go to the CS folder under the Program Files and manually delete it.

It certainly wasn't updated in MY game. When I disabled the fix, CS wedding arch lost the option. I looked at the CS wedding arch code after installing both BV patch and FT. The bug is still there, and the CS wedding arch is included neither in BV Overrides nor in FT Overrides.

I just checked it in-game and it is still broken (and the non-placeable-in-decra-chill celebration cakes are still broken too) EAxis definitely hasn't fixed this.

Ha! I completely forgot about that. No special game for me. Thanks for reminding me, and sorry for getting all huffy about it.

I have this mod in my celebration stuff pack and I tried it tonight and it does't work for me. I have all eps and stuff packs up to Freetime. This is suppose to work with Free time isn't it?




Yes, it does work with FT. I have all eps and stuff packs, too.
