TESTERS WANTED: XML files to fix the missing data from Sims in WA locations.
« on: 2010 December 12, 14:14:25 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

I've been looking at the XMLs that specify the Sims to initially move in to France, China and Egypt. I noticed that the Barnacle Bay one carried celebrity data, and realised that I could potentially fix the Sims in locations up quite a bit. The data for the Sims is somewhat lacking in places - especially for the dead sims which have no Traits or Lifetime Wishes attached, let alone more recent additions like Star Signs and Celebrity.

Could a few people import this into your France world file using s3pe (remember to back up the world file first) and see if it all works for you?

XML for French Sims

You'll find the world file at Program Files/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3 World Adventures/GameData/Shared/NonPackaged/Worlds

You'll need to swap the original file back whenever patching if you use this, so the back up is essential.

Here are the changes:

- All Sims in France should have description texts. Not elaborate ones, just ones that match their traits/home situations.

- All households in France should have description texts.

- You should see one or two Sims with preset celebrity status *if* you have Late Night installed. This so far works nicely with bars and clubs installed in Champs Les Sims.

- All dead Sims have traits, lifetime wishes, and description texts.

This is the sort of change I'm making, from this:

Quote
<DeadSims>
  <SimDescriptionId>5939685146668615552</SimDescriptionId>
  <SpreadSheetUniqueID>Sim_500</SpreadSheetUniqueID>
  <FirstName>Gameplay/Excel/France/Sims:Tim</FirstName>
  <LastName>Gameplay/Excel/France/Sims:Doorson</LastName>
  <HouseholdId>41</HouseholdId>
  <Description>DescriptionNotSpecified</Description>
 </DeadSims>

To this:

Quote
<DeadSims>
  <SimDescriptionId>5939685146668615552</SimDescriptionId>
  <SpreadSheetUniqueID>Sim_500</SpreadSheetUniqueID>
  <FirstName>Gameplay/Excel/France/Sims:Tim</FirstName>
  <LastName>Gameplay/Excel/France/Sims:Doorson</LastName>
  <HouseholdId>41</HouseholdId>
  <Traits>PartyAnimal,Lucky,Flirty,DareDevil,XFactor,CutureFrance</Traits>
  <Skills>Cooking,4 Guitar,9 Dancing,10</Skills>
  <LifetimeWish>major_dream_level_10_music_rock_branch</LifetimeWish>
  <Sign>Cancer</Sign>
  <CelebrityLevel>5</CelebrityLevel>
  <GenderPreference>F</GenderPreference>
  <Description>In life Tim was a generation-defining musician. He was electrocuted at the age of 27 by a faulty electric guitar.</Description>
 </DeadSims>

If there are no issues with this then I'll do the other two worlds as well. Because every time I go on vacation/adventuring I get pissed off thinking about the blank Sims data in the location.

I've recently come across this error of missing data in world adventures locations and am hoping this fix may solve my issue, at least for France. Or I'll just find something else. I'll try this today
