Why do my child Sim is forced to go home after 12am? I enabled the NoPsychicCurfewPolice configuration but my child Sim is still psychicly-controlled to go home and I can't even cancel that action.

The psychic police are only concerned with teenagers. If you're talking about children and their zombie-like trek home at exactly a certain time, you need to modify kChildStartCurfewHour and kChildEndCurfewHour in XML Sim_0xa29571c6f77aa18d. OR: use this attached tweak.

Sorry for being stupid but do I need to install this to default location of all mods? C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages

THANKS THIS IS GREAT

Slap me with a trout if I'm being a 'tard, here, but I have a sim that I kicked out of my main house, who I originally thought may have left the neighborhood because she never showed up in a house anywhere (to her detriment, she only got about 2 grand when she left, so she could not afford property). She called her twin (who kicked her out originally!) so she apparently exists somewhere in the ether. Now she has a partner, Artie, but still they have no house in the 'hood that I can find.

So, my question is this:  is she paired up and homeless? I've only kicked out a sim once before since installing AM and that sim moved in next door on her own (of course, she had more cash at the time).

I guess I didn't know they'd do that. If in fact that's what happened, I find it really funny. Also, if I'm so inclined, is there a way to find her and move her into a house, or is she perpetually lost in space? Just curious.

I seem to remember a "listhomeless" command, but I could just be brain farting. You should be able to invite the sim in question over using the phone, and then invite her to move in with you (with cheats if necessary). From there, you could just use the "Edit Town" method to move her in with someone else, regardless of how poor she is.

12. "bodysnatch <sim>": Steals body of sim of compatible age/sex, making your
     currently selected sim appear like that sim, ala SimSurgery. Destroys the
     target sim. Requires testingcheatsenabled. Useful for updating appearance
     of selfsims with better precision than editsim. Will copy weight.


I have a question about the body snatching option in AM.

When you do this, does it also copy traits, name, favorites, and LTWishes ? I don't think it does, but I've never tried it and I want to be sure.

Thanks.

I recently used it, and it definitely doesn't copy name, traits, or skills.  It does, however, copy clothing choices.  I'm not sure about favorites and LTW's.

Its best use is if you want to redo a sim's looks because you think you can do a much better job than you did at making them look as you want (most often, this will be if you want the sim to look like a specific person).

So I typed in "radar all" for the hell of it. Is there any way I can get rid of the effect without going through every sim separately or reloading a save?

Is World Adventures required for AwesomeMod to work?

I'm trying to follow this guide, but it keeps mentioning world adventures.

No, the WA and base game cores are the same, so it will work for both.

I haven't worked out what triggers these stalker interruptions yet, but rest assured we are focussed on stamping it out with extreme prejudice.

Awesomemod does not do a lot of town-balancing.  It doesn't randomly create sims to maintain an arbitrary or stable population level or any of that sort of thing (as indicated in requests thread recently).  I wonder though, does it control the gender of the resulting child from sims it pollinates?  I've had an uncanny shortage of males in town for at least three generations (with the fourth coming of age, according to family tree).  In every generation, there are about 10+ females and around 2 males born.  It's perhaps ironic that in TS2 this was the balance I had, but there it was intentional (I didn't play legacy).  Now it's getting frustrating, and this problem has been oddly persistent throughout the generations.  Actually it's so bad that most of the town is tightly interrelated - mates are that rare despite there being many families.

If awesomemod doesn't gender balance, I wonder if there's a mod that works alongside awesomestory to do so (probably not possible, but I can hope dammit) or some method I might employ to keep the townie genders relatively equal - or at least within sane ranges (3 males to at least 15 females below elder is current count and clearly untenable).

Nope. Once Awesomestory pollinates, it basically ignores the issue and lets the pregnancy engine take it from there. What you get is determined entirely at random.

I've had an uncanny shortage of males in town for at least three generations (with the fourth coming of age, according to family tree).  In every generation, there are about 10+ females and around 2 males born.  It's perhaps ironic that in TS2 this was the balance I had, but there it was intentional (I didn't play legacy).  Now it's getting frustrating, and this problem has been oddly persistent throughout the generations.  Actually it's so bad that most of the town is tightly interrelated - mates are that rare despite there being many families.
Sounds typical. With small numbers, skews can easily occur from random fluctuation. I suggest more apples.

I'm curious about autosave settings.

-Does "Pausing" count as going into/out of build/buy mode? I am well aware the game pauses to do so, but does autosave recognize it as the same thing?
-Is it a noticable thing? Does the saving thing come up and everything, or is it hush-hush and hidden? Does it interrupt gameplay? I Pause quite often just to move the camera and catch up with what my sims are doing.
-Will autosave save to a separate file, distinct from my intentional save file? If not, is there a way to force it to? I would like autosaving, but not if it saves my game just for going and buying a new lamp.
-Does autosave/can autosave save before leaving for/coming home from adventures?

Yes.

-Is it a noticable thing? Does the saving thing come up and everything, or is it hush-hush and hidden? Does it interrupt gameplay? I Pause quite often just to move the camera and catch up with what my sims are doing.
Yes. Saving is a fairly lengthy process in any event, it's not inobtrusive, which is why there are so many options for it.

-Will autosave save to a separate file, distinct from my intentional save file? If not, is there a way to force it to? I would like autosaving, but not if it saves my game just for going and buying a new lamp.
Yes, it will save to the autosave# files, it will not overwrite your real file or change where it will save when you manually save.

-Does autosave/can autosave save before leaving for/coming home from adventures?
No, coming home or leaving from adventures is too sudden.

Oh, I see. Doing it when you pause sounds pretty lame, then.

When it runs through the autosave files, I assume it starts over and overwrites the first one, etc?

Is there a way to temporarily turn on those little tracker bubbles you see from map view for all sims? Every once in a great while, I end up with a sim or three stuck somewhere*. It causes my game to lag. Unsticking the sim fixes the issue. However, it can take awhile to find the sim.



*This sticking has been my fault for issues with rabbit hole placement and is not an Awesomemod bug.

Where can I update my game to be compatiable with AwesomeMod? I downloaded the framework and did everything it said, but I'm running ver 1.0.631.00001 And I tried the showconfig and nothing comes up. I really wanna use awesomemod as I've heard great things about it. Thanks!!

I'm interested in the answer to this too, and I don't want it to be overlooked because it is at the end of the prior page.
