THANKS THIS IS GREAT

Try this: Go into Edit Town mode and see if the kid is still a part of the household. If he is, grab someone random from the sim bin and move them in and then out again. This should reset the household and the kid should be standing by the mail box, with all opportunities/wishes gone and an empty inventory. It's a pain in ass but it's the only way I've found to retrieve missing sims.

Thank you so much. ♥ I moved the dad and kid out, then back in and he's back in the family. :D Since he was just a toddler, he had no inventory or wishes to lose, so it's really not that bad.

While working up a list of mutually exclusive traits, I have learned a sim cannot be both Grumpy and Hot Headed.

What is this... this... UNHOLINESS?!

*head explodes*

That makes little to no sense.  Then again, it's probably an EA "safety feature" to keep people from creating sims that are impossible to please.

The "grumpy" trait is stupid.  The sim isn't grouchy, he or she just gets sad instead of angry.  Just use hotheaded instead, and use grumpy where you would use "pathetic" or "whiner".

I also saw one; thought it was some kind of joke actually, but when I questioned him- I was looking for people to write up you see- he was all "I'm a magician! Whoosh!"

Of course he did not do anything either and when I finished my inquisition he took a taxi home. Rather disappointing.

I'm thinking maybe it's because she didn't know the neighbors well enough? I mean, I wasn't trying to have her eat out of their fridge, she just had to pee.

If you want to believe the Prima Guide, yes, you are correct.  According to the guide, you have to build up the relationship in order to use the bathroom at another Sim's home.  I have not tested this myself.

That's... incredibly stupid.  What, is the sim afraid that the not-acquainted-enough sim will steal all the TP?  Sure, maybe someone with the Evil trait would deny visitors potty privileges, but I can't believe that's standard.

It's pretty standard in my house. If I hardly know you, you won't even make it through the front door - never mind the bathroom.

Yes, it's stupid. I can't even make my self Sim properly, because it would require both the Childish and the Hates Children trait, they cancel each other out. Since when does being playful mean that you like peoples' little crotch droppings?

The "grumpy" trait is stupid.  The sim isn't grouchy, he or she just gets sad instead of angry.

Come to think of it, I had a grouchy sim with a whiny demeanor too.  I thought some other trait was causing it.  That stinks.  Roll Eyes

Mean-spirited has its charm, but what good is "see ghost of" without a ready cowplant?

This too.  I was going to combine Hates Children with Family-Oriented, which was probably a wee bit optimistic.

My grumpy Sim always gets angry toward the end of her shift at work if I have her hanging with her co-workers.  I always wonder what someone's done to piss her off so badlly.  She also got really mad once when I made her get up in the night to feed one of the babies.  She's not whiny that I've noticed.

I got my retail game, now. My experiences:

Bugs:
If you make a Sim a second outfit in the same category, the second overrides the first.

Annoyances:
What numbskull designed genetics? I was making a kid for two Sims in CAS, and most of the time the child seems to be a clone of either the mother or father (and it's really obvious because the dad was black and the mother was Asian). When I finally got one that seemed to have traits from both, he had hazel eyes even though they both have brown.

Why do families you aren't controlling age so quickly? I have "long" lifespan selected (for the very purpose of keeping families from aging too much while I'm not playing them), but when I got Dorie Hart pregnant, she had a baby ready to age up the next time I played the family, after being away for probably less than a sim day. Babies in long lifespan mode have 15 days, right? It's both fast and erratic, because the baby was ready to age up at the same time as the teenager Bebe, who had 8 days to go until young adult, but had not grown up. I hope this is a bug and not a feature.

This probably happened before I had turned off Story Progression mode in the beginning, but just as described throughout this thread, a single male Sim cloned a baby without my permission. Were some of the programmers retarded monkeys? Story Progression could be neat, but only for townies and other families I don't care about, and only when there are two Sims of the opposite sex present to create the babies.

Also:
It looks like same-sex marriage is still in the game. I got the option to propose marriage after making the Single Moms fall in love (which was ridiculously easy; there must have been some sexual tension there before I came along). There's also Gobias Koffi, a single male whose family description obviously suggests that he's gay. The description is a bit nebulous, but not enough to keep away the complaints of parents who want to preserve their delicate snowflakes' ignorance of the homos. I'll repeat what's probably being said a lot around the webs: The Sims 3 is much gayer than its predecessors.

Which is one thing we can say is a step in the right direction, atleast. Although the MalePreg in game already is a little odd.

Oh yeah, another slight annoyance: you can't copy/paste from The Sims 3 to another program and vice versa. I was going to save some hex color values in a text document to match the top and bottom of a bikini, but no luck. That might have been a temporary glitch, though, because I remember that happened on and off in The Sims 2.

Nope, that's what I tried. Does it work for everyone else? It could just be an intermittent glitch like it was in TS2.

It didn't work for me in the arrred version or in the official version.  It seems strange.  Wouldn't it make sense for people to want to type up their sims' biographies in a text document and paste them in, or copy a cheat code from a website into the game?  Everything seems to have copy-paste functionality now, but EAxis removes functions, of course.

Why save the hex? You can just grab the swatch and drop it onto the article of clothing that you want it to match. When an pattern has multiple color options for that one pattern, you can even grab the little colored circle and drop it onto something else.

You'd be able to use an 'alternative' clipboard, and set the copy and paste keys to something different. Can't give any examples of programs, but I have used them in the past. Also not sure if it would work within a Direct X window, but it's certainly worth a shot if copy paste is important. Personally I don't mind - I have an iPhone so I'm used to it. Roll Eyes

The Sims 3 team is taking bug reports. I think I'll point out the multiple outfit glitch, the erratic aging, and the slow, slow third speed mode. Maybe also the horrible genetics and Story Mode, but I doubt those would be considered buggy to them.

I'm still going through the topic, but I haven't seen this mentioned yet. After sticking a "Hates Nature" sim in a basement, it seems that basements have an inherent 'outsideness', because he got the negative moodlet they pick up while outside.

I'm guessing that if I enclosed the area in walls, it wouldn't be 'outside' anymore, but that's just an asinine waste of space. I guess his hippie sister gets the basement.

Well, in that same vein of being asinine. EA didn't program a way for sims to tell the difference between a normal room and a conservatory like room. The Goth family get a negative moodlet for an "unfinished" room when they are playing chess in their conservatory. How hard would it have really been to add a check for "outside garden plants" in an "unfinished room"?

Early on I had an outside loving sim who got the mood bonus everytime she went to bed - turns out I had forgotten to extend the roof when I extended the house.

As to the Goths, yes. I ended up moving the chess set because that room was such a downer.
