I found three ores on the coastline. I sent my sim from the Pier Point lot on the beach and had her just keep walking. I think she walked for about a sim hour to find the rocks. Can't remember what they were now, I think they were common type ones, nothing special, certainly not plutonium.

THANKS THIS IS GREAT

I'm trying to keep up with the thread, but I've most likely skipped some pages, so the following may have been addressed.

What is up with the lack of relationships between family and/or household members? I've so far witnessed two sprog birthings with zero relationship for mother/child, which
is retarded. I wouldn't mind working them up to friendship status, but they should start with at least some relationship points.

Also, the first of the families the game moved into town without my permission(this is also retarded) consists of two adult women and a toddler. Neither of the
women has any relationship status with the other, or with the child. What the hell?

The regular feed / snuggle / play routine you have to go through with infants, as well as toddler training, should give you some reasonable level of relationship with the kid before it will ever matter.

No idea on the second one. That's bizarre.

Well derr. I know how to get the relationship up, but why wouldn't they start out with one. It are stupid.

Well, for instance, my evil sim has fathered 4 bastards, none of which he has ever met.

PS - Hello all!

I have been letting a whole lot of stupid crap go by to the keeper (including Mr Snowflake who is so kindly willing to wait an entire week for the mods he wants), but this shit stops now. We don't like you, we don't care that you are new, and we certainly don't want greetings.

That's not illogical. It's illogical for the birth parent to leave the hospital carrying an infant and have no further relationship progress than she had with
a person she greeted two days ago.

Ok, I am hoping this hasn't been mentioned as it is so hard to even get this thread open.  My sim kid was riding her bike home from the park last night and, on the way home, guess who she passed?  Herself on a bike!  Undecided I followed the clone for a bit but then lost her at a steep hill I thought she would be coming over.  What is the deal with this?  VBT? Is this because of the whole place a copy of a family thing while the real one sits in the sim bin thing?  Not too cool to have two of the same sims residing in the same town.  I really hope the clone isn't living in another house and I just haven't found her yet.

Has this happened to anyone else?

No, which is disappointing. I thought at least that we'd be able to make jewelry out of them.

I've been trying to get all butterflies. It has not gone well. So far, I have:
Green Swallowtail
Monarch
Royal Purple
Mission Blue
Zephyr Metalmark
Moth
Red Admiral
Silver-Spotted Skipper

I know there's a rainbow one, but there has to be one or two more. I'm currently saving up for the collector's perk, but had to spend some points on ensuring that my sim would be a great host. I don't want to see an over-reactive party animal after a bombed party.

I hate the moodlet manager, my Sim used it a couple of times and it only seemed to work once.  Then it was gone from the inventory the next time I loaded the inventory (though I think I switched families in-between).

My Sim has finally gotten the teleportation pad.  He's currently updating it for perfect teleportation, since it's another unique upgrade (still trying to figure out what they all are).

After I plunked down the reward, all the members of the family could now teleport anywhere:

Mmm guess I'll save and see how the moodlet manager works, can always get the collection helper instead if the manager's a bust.

One thing to note with the telepad is that you can always teleport back to your home if you choose the option from your cellphone. At least I initially missed this.

There is a Red Somethingorother (sorry don't have the game running right now).  It's supposedly a common one but I had cases stacked to the ceiling before I found one.

ETA: my reading comprehension skills: let me show u dem.  Red Admiral.  My eyes totes skimmed right over that about 10 times until I read it in the quote in my own post.  Durr.

I'm pretty disappointed with the collection rewards. Seems like all they give you is the ability to find things you already have.

At least the collector helper also helps find seeds. That was useful.

Get the guitar skill up to around 4, or ideally 5, then just play guitar (or for tips, if you can) just before the first guest arrives and carry on till everyone leaves. I've hosted about 30/40 parties like this and the worst score I've had was pretty good, but most of them are "great."

I'm having a brief window where the forum has loaded, so I wanted to mention this in case it hasn't been:

I noticed in my save files there was Sunset Valley.sims3 and Sunset Valley.sims3.bak. So I think at any given time you may have one extra saved iteration backwards in case you really eff everything up. Haven't tried renaming one of the .bak files and testing this theory, 'cause, y'know, they don't let me play Sims 3 at work for some weird reason.

Adds to decor which adds to mood, add a nice garden and you will get a very nice enviroment boost as your sim relaxes in the garden.

Yes, renaming the saves with .bak on them works fine. Had to do this when one of my saves wouldn't load for some reason, but I renamed the backup and it was one save behind, basically. Really handy.

The collecting is disappointing, you can't do anything with the crap. At least you can put the fish in fish bowls and the insects on display. It's nice to know that the metal bars are stack-able though. For those collecting, I found at least four different insects at the ruins that look a little like Stonehenge. They only seem to show at night. Every trip to the area that looks like an abandoned mine produces several different gems and metals. At least three of my sim's plutonium bars were found there.

I have yet to find that huge stone however.

One day in college I was feeling very stupid. So I drove with Ben down to Maitland and toured EA Tiburon for an hour as an 'honorary intern'. I left feeling MUCH smarter. I recommend the experience to everyone.  -this is a quote from an Ex-boyfriend of mine..

I guess I'm just stating the obivous here, but it's hard not to imagine they've taken a cue from MMOs, and that it would be a good idea to hoard those 'mats' for future xpac 'recipe drops'.

I practically live at Stonehenge. Found the tiger-striped one there, and it looks like as soon as I can find the rainbow one, I'll have them all.

Also found the plutonium at the mine.

Finally got through the whole thread; I'm exhausted. Grin  Anyhoo.  Probably missed it somewhere; but when/if Sims 3 Store stuff is shared here, will it actually be importable into the game?

Nice one - Give my guitar party trick a go, you won't be disappointed. You don't even need refreshments for the guests. In fact, it's probably better if you don't. I earn shit loads from it. You can certainly earn at least 3/4k per party when your skill gets to the top, and you can host 2 parties per day. Great way to earn a living and keep a party animal sim happy.

What is up with the lack of relationships between family and/or household members? I've so far witnessed two sprog birthings with zero relationship for mother/child, which
is retarded. I wouldn't mind working them up to friendship status, but they should start with at least some relationship points.

I would actually prefer that. It's harder to act out Mommy Dearest scenarios when you're handed relationship points off the bat. NO WIRE HANGERS, EVER.

Yeah, I figured that was the reason.  Which is why I was not so surprised (but pissed).
