If I'm not sure what the mod is about, I just download it and check RTFM. If that doesn't answer my questions, then someone gets a p.m.   Grin

Does this hack enable badging on comm lots too, or is that already in the game?

visit oculist? Smiley

I've noticed the same. Also, sometimes visitors show the bars on my home lots (while playing chess), sometimes they don't. I've never cared much about that, but it would be interesting to know if they still gain skill points anyway.

This is annoying,but not too much and seems Mr.Pescado will not be waste precious time to investigate this.

I don't find it even annoying, as I only care that sims gain points when I play them. I just noticed.

This happens because certain classes of visitor are permitted to skill while others are not: Nonplayables will skill anywhere (since you can never play them), playables will only skill when they are the active family (but they will now do so even on community lots).

Actually that's not entirely true.  I had a sim marry one of the social workers.  Might it be a better idea to treat all the currently non-selectable sims the same way?  Personally I am happy to have them all skilling without discrimination (they would in real life after all), but I can understand why others would prefer only the currently in-play sims to be affected.  How about two flavours?

That is, A: A Bad Idea, since the SS is not intended to be socializable, and B: Not relevant: Nonplayable sims do not become played until you convert them into playable sims.

Might it be a better idea to treat all the currently non-selectable sims the same way?  Personally I am happy to have them all skilling without discrimination (they would in real life after all), but I can understand why others would prefer only the currently in-play sims to be affected.  How about two flavours?
I only maintain one flavor of anything: The flavor *I* use. Anything else results in exponential overhead growth. The reason I have only the currently-in-play playables affected for playables is that skilling the wrong skills will totally destroy your want tree tuning.

Oh right, well, I don't do want tree tuning and stuff like that, I quite like to be surprised by what my sims have been up to when they decide to turn up on a comm lot of their own accord.  Ok, so be it Smiley

This hack is more awesome than I thought, then - I don't care if my playables ruin their marriages while not controlled, but I would definitively hate seing a carefully locked "max skill x" want fulfilled before *I* decide to fulfill it.

   Damn, i forgot all about those Wants i have locked, i was wishing for this hack to allow my playables who aren't being played, to skill while visiting other Residential lots.  But you went and reminded me about a personal pet peeve.  Those 'Make Friends with X' that i hoard, and then have fulfilled when i'm not looking.

Those are minor problems compared to the bigger issue: A sim that decides to forget his level 9 cooking skill and fixate on his randomly gained logic point instead, permanently ripping you off from being able to get the Maximize Cooking.

 Oh, having their carefully crafted wants panel all scrambled up once i get back to their lot is something i've gotten used to.  Unless you've got an undiscovered shiney that freezes those wants, until you return to playing them?

I got a problem   Undecided   when I clicked on macro/Hobbinate for my sim to birdwatch I got lots of those Insimenator machines popping up all over the place. I used the hack conflict and it said I didn't have any.... so do they clash because the Insimenator is not updated for FT   Huh

The point is, you wouldn't have *known* if you were having issues with it, as the damage is being silently done in your data files.  All your sims could be completely wrecked before you find out anything was going wrong.
