Install. Use no-cd crack. Get DC or at the least use alfixes and notownieregen. Cry because you paid EA for an inferior product with SecuROM.

Pescado fixes are generally cleaner than EAxis. For example: the charlatan. Unlinking the characters fixes the apocalyptic spawn. Suuuure.

Specifically, use the Dizzy-patched version available here--> http://www.moreawesomethanyou.com/smf/index.php/topic,13150.msg377007.html#msg377007

Reason: prevents the game from continually reloading Sim portraits and killing the frame rate.

Stupid question: I got the Reloaded version or something from PB. Is it possible to uninstall that version of AL and install this one ^ without my previous expansions/system barfing? BOY do I hate that portrait change.

ETA: Thanks, exciting!

I think this is just the patch and a new no-cd.exe file.  You should be able to install all of this without uninstalling your game or messing up anything.

To be clear: is the lamp unmovable when accessing the inventory as well as Build/Buy? Does movebojects change whether or not you can move the lamp to inventory?

I could not move it with the build or buy options, also I could not move it and put it into inventory.  I did try moveobjects on cheat, but I still could not touch it with the hand. 

This cheat should help you:

boolProp aptSubLotSpecificToolsDisabled false

It lets you place and remove stuff outside your sim's apartment suite. But anything you place 'outside' won't be visible or even there if you play another household in the same building. It should allow you to retrieve lamps and date gifts, though.

And the new problems:

1.  This has happened several times.  An NPC who comes home from work with my Sim, will (as they often do) spend the night in the hot tub or at the chess board or whatever.  A dialog box comes up the next morning where the NPC angrily says, "You invited me to spend the night, and didn't even let me get any sleep!  I'm leaving!"  This in spite of the fact that (a) I thought being invited to spend the night, and then the other party not letting you get any sleep, was considered by many people to be a good thing? (b) My Sim did not, in fact, ask the NPC to spend the night; and (c) There is always a perfectly serviceable sofa, or even the other half of a double bed, in any of my Sims' houses, where the NPC could have slept if he/she really wanted to.

This error is driving me absolutely nuts! Anyone know if there's a fix for it anywhere?

You're taking this all very seriously, you know.  I take it as an axiom that townies and especially NPCs will act like total morons at all times.  Consider it lulzy.  Remember, in real life, many of the people you see on the streets are also complete idiots (who would likely interpret you throwing stones at them to be an invitation to stay over at your place - I actually know someone like this, although I have not thrown stones at him yet.  Considering it.)

Hahah, you're right, I really shouldn't take it too seriously. It's just a nuisance to have it pop up pretty much every night/morning. (Also, I'm not sure if it leads to any relationship decay? I keep forgetting to look.)

I don't really see the point of ever inviting anyone to stay over: Try "Make Bugger Off" on the Business Runs You Hammer and Sickle instead. There's no real POINT in inviting anyone to stay over because if you were planning to woohoo, they would stay over ANYWAY (and not whine), and if you didn't, then what's the point of inviting someone over just so they can SLEEP? Total waste of time and effort.

Yeah, I don't see the point, either. I'll definitely try the Business Runs You hack - I never paid attention before because I never really play businesses, but it sounds like that bugger off feature might be pretty useful. Thanks!

Sorry for the necromancy, however, I actually have a video of part of the borkiness from my list here (thought I did not):

The only way to prevent this that I have found, is to be sure to choose Say Goodbye To/...Everyone before putting the last Sim to bed.  Which is awfully hard to remember to do when it was never necessary before.  The problem seems to be worse in apartments, when merely talking to an apartment neighbor seems to equate with asking-to-spend-the-night-without-actually-asking.

But yes, I am taking it too seriously.  Hopefully it doesn't cause any relationship decay at least.

I got the Neverending Apartment Fire again last night. The one that can only be ended by restarting the PC. Grr... The fireman was there for several sim hours, spraying and spraying. One kitty kept running to the fire to hiss at it and sink through the floor. There was no sprinkler as I was playing a version of Asylum.

Maybe he's a big old softy with his wife.

Or maybe she's crankier than he is and the converstion went that way but in reverse. Cheesy

Somehow I think that Mrs. Pes rules the roost.  She does kill with her thumbs.  Also, Pescado claims that she is meaner than he is, and he doesn't want to be killed and eaten.

I think he married a special-forces trained scary lady.  She probably informed him that he WAS going to go out with her.  She sounds like a very interesting person, actually, but Pescado says she doesn't give lessons in thumb-killing.

Avoiding the ever-fascinating topic of Pescado's home life, could someone else check to see if raking leaves is borked?  I used to be able to tell super neat Sims to rake leaves and they'd happily keep on raking them until the leaves were gone or one of their motives went into the red.  Now, I have to tell even my 10 Neatness point Virgos to rake each pile individulally and the gardner has stopped raking them all together.

This is not exactly an answer to your question, but if you put your trees on hills, leaves won't fall on the ground at all.  I've taken to doing this or just moveobject-ing them because they take so damned long to rake.

To try to answer your question, I saw a landlord complete raking, but there were only two trees on the lot.  Undecided

Macrotastics has a "macro-garden" function - your sims will happily rake all leaves (and do any other gardening that happens to be waiting around for someone to do it).

I hope not to step on any toes by asking, especially if it's already been answered. I tried reading all the way through but failed miserably. There's just too much..
Anywhoo.
Has anyone else had a problem with the groups? And I do not mean social groups.
I invite people to join a group or try to meet a group of friends on a community lot to have dinner or something and they all freeze up. They literally just stand somewhere.
Here's a weird picture of it.


It's seriously strange. They look like they're on punishment. *snickers*
Any fix for this?

Either that or it's one hell of an interesting wall.  Do you play with debug mode on?  Do you get an error message/log?  If not, try playing with debug on and see if an error pops up.

What hacks/mods are you using?  Does this happen if you take out your hacks/mods?
