Also, if you use a package installer, then you don't need to put your files anywhere, because the installer does this for you. That's why it's called an installer.

THANKS THIS IS GREAT

In the last thread, there were a ton of separate posts with different commands for different things that weren't always listed in the rtfm.  Is there any way people might list the ones they know?  I never got around to messing with the commands in AwesomeMod since I just stuck with playing regularly while running the mod siltently, but noticed there was a lot of talk about different ones in the last thread. I had intended on going through and making up some sort of reference however, that is no longer possible.  Maybe someone could start a thread for that, or post them here since the thread does say "helpful tips".  That would be awesome as a recap all in one place.

I think that is a good idea. If someone makes a list like that I'll try to edit the first post to include them.   I should probably also add the various mouse commands that I know of.

Thanks a lot. That will be a great help and will probably cut down on a lot of questions if there's a comprehensive list that everyone can refer to. Much appreciated what you've already accomplished here.

I agree. I too am also totally lost regarding all these new functions, so I'll just ignore them and keep simming until I feel a bit braver.

They have to have a house first.  Just move them into an empty lot.  Do the familyfunds lastname thing... then move them to where you really want them to live.

So move them to an empty lot.  type familyfunds newdude 50000    and they'll have $50,000 (assuming their lastname is newdude).

I found a way to shortcut this which I knew I should have written down, but I believe it was something like doing the familyfunds cheat, going through the steps of merging them into a household, but then cancelling, which updated their funds.  I'll try it again when I start up the game and see if I am remembering correctly.Can't seem to replicate this, so ignore my idiotic ramblings.

I just read on the sims 3 forum that having the awsome mod installed stops you from being invited to parties?

A) Is this true

B) Can you be rang out of the blue to attend somebody elses party?

 Huh thanks

I don't think that my friends would stop inviting me to parties just because I have the Awesomemod installed. If this is the case, then they aren't very good friends!

My Sims were not invited to parties before Awesomemod, and they have not been invited to parties since Awesomemod, so my anecdotal experience suggests that Awesomemod has no effect on party invitations.

There is a patch out on the official site: http://www.thesims3.com/game/patches

Complete list of changes:

    * Addresses some issues with Speed 2 and 3 moving too slowly. Some machines will have better results when using Speed 2 and 3 now.
    * Fix to story progression on/off selection toggle.
    * Fix for a possible crash with audio code.
    * Fix for babysitter routing off lots with babies.
    * Addresses some issues with Vsync and refresh rate problems.
    * Addresses some issues with DVD authentication errors and drive compatibility on startup.
    * This update deals with some issues on Mac systems that can crash the game while connecting to AFP servers.
    * Fix for a freeze that can occur when Sims attempt to clean out bad food from the fridge.

Has anyone tried using the patch with Awesomemod? I was hoping that they were going to address more issues in this patch. I think I'm going to pass of this right now, as Awesomemod fixes story progression and adds awesome other features as well.

The mod will of course override the patch, just like it overrode the original game, but there could be interesting juxtapositions.

After all this time, this is all they fixed.  Pathetic.  But I guess that's EA for ya.  They seriously should compensate Pescado for fixing their fuckups.

I was discussing this with a friend the other day.  Ideally, EA would take Pescado's changes and incorporate them into the game, with a better UI.  However, is it ethical for them to do so?  Pescado is unlikely to give them his personal ID so that they can pay him for his work...

Does anyone know whether it's possible to get the patch without connecting my game machine to the internet?  My game machine hasn't had internet access since EA and Sony decided to start spying on me and destroying my hardware.  I'd prefer to download the patch and copy it over, but I can't see any way to do that.

Ethics, schmethics. It's not a concept I pay more than token attention to, so what makes you think EAxis does?

Yes. What's your region version?
EN_US (00001)
Worldwide (00002)/Razor1911

Note that if you got the 632 patch, you have to reinstall now.

That was my conclusion.  They should just use your fixes.  I'm glad to hear that you agree.  EA, are you listening?

Is it safe to use AwesomeMod with this patch?

This is ALL they fixed? What about the other obvious bugs like the inability to have more than one outfit per outfit type, or the stopping of all music when apparently too many channels are being used? Or the bracelets only going on one wrist? Or "favorite color" being vestigial? Or the inability to have custom neighborhoods? Or the conspicuous absence of a diving board, piano, or hot tub? Or the lack of a cute, zany mood-related character like Tragic Clown or Social Bunny? Or the inability to style fences, stairs, or chimneys? Or the inability to change maternity clothing? Or ghosts having all of the needs and abilities of corporal sims? Or Dim Sum being a dish rather than a style of serving? Or the developers being a bunch of lazy &$!?nuggets when it comes to patching, beta testing, and game intricacies? I had complete faith that all of these would be fixed.

Or the one reported by GOSlings where toddlers stretch into this weird ET-like thing while watching TV? o_o

Just out of interest, what IS the point of favourite colour? I know it crops up in conversation, but... is that it?

I haven't had any toddlers get all weird myself, but if that is a problem, yes AND THAT TOO! The favorite color is completely vestigial. It was supposed to give sims mood benefits when they were around it, but I guess they couldn't make the limited selection of favorite colors and the hundreds of colors available in the color wheel work together.

I have no idea if this was the sole intent, but when Sims discover they have a favorite color in common, it boosts their friendship a bit. Similar to how having a trait in common will give a boost.  That's my observation, anyway.  Someone who's seen the code could tell you whether my observation is true or just wishful thinking.

If you are having extreme speed issues the patch is worth downloading. I no longer have time to make dinner while sims are at work and school. Speeds 2 - 3 are now comparable to TS2 2 - 3 speeds.

The speed issue annoys me, so I am downloading the patch and hoping that my hacks still work. It's not like the patch is dramatically changing much of anything.

For optimum speed, in case this patch does nothing for it, zoom in close to the ground. You can also move your camera out into an empty field far away from anything. I think that helps even more.

Reversing the 632 patch should be easy enough.

This is ALL the 632 patch did:

Default.ini - added "InstallationRequired = 0"
GraphicsRules.sgr - in the very last line with the #, changed "E?-Kad}" to "0bfffcc9753aabac325f".
skuversion.txt - changed "1.0.631.00002" to "1.0.632.00002".

Oh yes, I've banned the tv from the toddlers cause of this.  I can't believe this is all they fixed after all this time.  Especially when there are other crazy bugs, like the turdler-tv thing, that need fixing.

Edited for clarity.
