One odd thing that I have noticed is that my Sim gets party invites and shows up at a reasonable hour, say 9pm, and the hosts are always in bed asleep! My Sim has had to do something inappropriate such as take a shower to wake up the host each time.

You know, you can just click on the sleeping sims and just click "Wake Up".

I have noticed that, after a few saves/load certain completely empty plots of land have their lot type autonomously changed to "residential" even if its just a completely empty piece of land. Is this EA behavior?

Sometimes the spawners close to the lot will spawn something on the lot. I had one lot with junk objects spawned on it. There were some nice stuff there, so I had my active sim collect the junk and the lot was cleared after that.

I find it more fun to have my Sim irritate them to wake them up.  Grin

I didn't want to make a new topic for this and I've run out of ideas. My game crashes in live mode every single time I try to play. Not in pause, build/buy mode, edit town or CAS, only in live mode. I tried adding all the games to the DEP list (I have Vista) but that made it crash faster. I've tried with my settings turned all the way down (even though my computer exceeds the minimum requirements, it was a long shot), with no mods, new saves and nothing seems to work. I'm attaching the error log file that generates when the game crashes in hopes that someone can understand what it is I'm doing wrong and if there is a way I can fix it. This is probably something so stupid and right in front of my nose.

ETA: Aaaaand I'm an idiot. I hadn't deleted any of my cache files and upon doing so my game seems stable for now.

If you've enabled higher than 2GB memory usage for the other TS3 executables, then you must do the same for TS3EP03.exe or it will crash upon attempting to run the simulation. Every single time.

How peculiar. I will have to look into quashing party invites from hosts which are not actually in a condition to host parties.

Yes, I remember going to a party only to find the host was at work for the entire duration. There were still other guests there, however, and if I wasn't specifically looking for the host, I might not have even noticed he was missing.

ETA: I'm also getting the jealousy-type thing for Sims who aren't even romantic interests of people who flirt at a party. My Sim has lost friends twice because of a Sim FRIEND who flirted with someone else, causing a relationship hit for EVERYONE at the party. Granted, the Sim was flirting with someone outside of his/her marriage, but what should the other Sims care?

Did EA do something to ramp up jealousy and anger re romantic interests?  Seems much more intense since installing NL?

I am having an old problem reappear with my 'neatnik' sim - she goes to bed and immediately gets up to make the bed. She apparently can't stand that her bed is unmade because she's in it sleeping. Usually, directing her to sleep once again solves the problem, but this has happened every night since she was created...and ONLY with the neatnik sim - the other sims in the household are not neat and they do not have this problem.  I do remember this happening way back when - probably with the base game.

I just had an interesting bug. I had to double check that I hadn't accidentally downloaded some sort of skilling mod because I had a child start painting and get full painting skill before the thing was even half done. She hadn't even read any toddler books.

And the dad was at the gym to get fatigued but even after five hours of Quick Burst it didn't happen (and there wasn't even a bar filling up). I don't know. It's possible that I suddenly have some sort of conflict and it's not actually a bug, but it's damned odd.

I had the same thing with my family of vampires. Is the dad a vampire? They don't get fatigued when working out.

Doh. Of course. I hadn't even considered that. Then why did he get that stupid opportunity in the first place?

The kid still isn't supposed to go from 0 to 10 in painting in a few hours, though... right?

I had something similar happen, but it was with Charisma. The only toddler skill item he had access to was the peg box, but when he was a teenager and started talking to himself in the mirror, his Charisma immediately jumped as high as possible based on the number of friends he had. For the record, he was born a vampire.

The jealousy in the game is driving me nuts. I keep having sims lose friends just because they happened to have a one night stand with the same person. If they're not in a relationship, it just doesn't make sense for them to get jealous.

I went from 0-10 in all of the music skills in one day with my vampire child.

You didn't mention if the kid was a vampire?  I haven't seen any behavior like this with my kids, they are gaining their skills as they are supposed to.

She is. Because, you know, her father was turned just before she was born.  Roll Eyes

Seriously. This game has very little logic.

Has EAxis ever demonstrated any logic in anything?  I gave up being surprised by anything EAxis does a long time ago.

That's the same reason my sim kid was born a vampire.

I've confirmed painting, musical instruments, logic, writing, and charisma are sped up for this born vamp. His fishing skill rises at the normal rate, other skills haven't been tested.

Athletic, inventing, sculpting, and martial arts as well. I haven't tested anything else.

As for the kid changing species in the womb, I'm assuming that's how my mummy kid was born.

Not sure if anyone else has had this problem,,

I have 2 sims in my house, one of them works just fine, everything's normal.. but the other can't go downstairs. She will walk downstairs but be invisible, and unable to do anything. Once i set her to go back upstairs, she magically reappears through the floor and heads there.

I don't know why this is happening to one sim and not the other.  Ive tried reloading, resetting, i even evicted her and moved her back in, but she still can't go downstairs. I'm stumped. :/

How did that work out? Was the baby just a black cutout, like when mummies try to change into martial art outfits? What happened when they aged up?

I know it's a bit off topic; you don't have to answer. I'll probably attempt this myself in an experimental save file, I'm just curious as to how all that panned out.
