THANKS THIS IS GREAT

Sending Sims on dates are annoying as hell if the active Sim doesn't have a car. It appears that when the active Sim goes on a date with Sim B, Sim B drives away leaving the active Sim behind. After that, I had to click on the venue again and wait for Sim B to show up. Sim B shows up and goes into the cab. Also, the option for "Ask 'x' to Leave Date" when clicking on Sim B is stupid. "End the Date" fits better. I suppose that changing the wording is too much work. I'm hoping that group outings didn't get borked.

I didn't have this issue and my sims didn't have a car. But they lived together so maybe that helped?

CTRL+shift testingcheatsenabled true>Go into town view>Click on your sims house>Right click and teleport here.

Yeah, that's a better method than resetsim which is what I used eventually.

I prefer to use that method of getting my Sims around their town than having to use transport.

Daycare profession is just plain pointless. The kids are left overnight frequently (and unannounced), which causes them to stay until the next shift. Then, suddenly they disappear, and my sim jumps to the front of the lot. After all of that, and hours of keeping the kids' mood high, job performance doesn't increase.

This happened to one toddler at my daycare but I just used reset sim on him which worked like a charm. Job performance tends to increase when the parents actually come to pick the kids up however which is why yours isn't increasing.

I've been fiddling around with the new Buy/Build filters and there's an annoying issue with the basegame one. I put some objects back in Mods\Packages and the custom filter works--only shows custom content. The store filter (even for decrapified content) works--only shows store content. But the basegame filter shows base and decrapified store and custom content. I assume it's because all the filter is looking for is an EPFlag value of 0x00 but it's strange that EA wouldn't differentiate it more than that. Even for people with crapified store content it would still show custom objects along with base objects, rather defeating the purpose.

I was playing in CAS a bit, and noticed that the voice pitch slider is broken. The 3 voice buttons change the voice, but sliding the bar up and down doesn't make the voice go higher or lower. I pulled all my CC (except for NoCD and nointro) and cleared caches, to no effect. Is anyone else having the same problem?

Patched to 1.22, Generations installed.

I'm having jump bug sort of issues which I haven't had, I don't know, since never. First when teaching a toddler to talk, and then with two (married) elders trying to sleep in the same bed. Also I encountered some problem with all sims in a household turning invisible during a toddler being potty trained. Everyone else eventually returned visible, except for the toddler, who was fixed by resetsim.

Edited to add: OK, the jump bug is not limited to elders in double beds, but to anyone sleeping in any kind of a bed, including toddlers. They just jump out of the bed while nowhere near fully rested.

For some reason Generations made my game insanely slow and I'm talking about an vanilla new game. Oh, and the EP sucks, anyways.

Anyone got the original TSLHost.dll file? Forgot to back mine up (Embarrassed), so now I can't update my game, and the Reloaded version keeps crashing on me.

So strollers...anyone else notice that they can't be pushed up a slight incline or hill?  I had my Sim take her toddler for a stroll and all was well until she reached a hill.  Then she picked the kid up, walked up the hill and put it back in the stroller.  Later she also put the kid in the stroller to move her from outside to the highchair on the same level.

What's the point of a sand box if a toddler can't play in it?

That's my TSLHost.dll, my games already patched though. So I'm not sure if that will help.

Pirating 101:  Don't Overwrite Important Files.  Back them up, move them to a safe place, or leave them where they are and rename them with a ".old" extension so the game will ignore them.  Whatever you have to do to keep you from going on websites to expose your shame while we point and laugh at you, because you WILL NEED those original files again if you plan to ever patch your game or upgrade to a new EP.

No shit.
I'm usually pretty good at that - I keep them backed up (I have TS3W.exe, TS3W-original.exe and TS3W-crack.exe) and color-coded in the original folder, so I can easily use whichever version I want, but I just forgot it this time around.
So lesson learned, and my daily backup has already run and updated all the files, so I'm at a loss here.

Anyways, if you happen to have the unpatched, original TSLHost.dll lying around somewhere, feel free to upload it, because I have no idea how to get it back - it didn't appear after reinstalling Generations, even after removing the cracked TSLHost.dll so it wouldn't get confused, and I can't find it lurking around in the installer either.

I'll even buy you a beer if you're ever near me if you could be so kind.

Suck it up, you're going to have to uninstall everything and start over. Why would you even waste your time using cracks for this game anyways? There's way too many updates.

Yeah, guess that's the reality I'm facing. And for my last noobie question -- is it possible to run the Reloaded version without a crack? I thought even the No-CD mods/cracks/whatever required changing a couple of the files?

For my last Hail Mary attempt I'm installing Generations on top of the regular base game, and extracting TSLHost.dll from that folder. Not sure if the contents of TSLHost.dll change with regards to what you have installed, but it's worth a shot. Otherwise I have a hell of a job ahead of me trying to find all the DMGs and all my CC..

Edit: SUCK IT.
I fixed it. Here's the unpatched, original TSLHost.dll for you daphoenyx. Just updated my game, so I know it works. http://www.mediafire.com/?z701kv49aql3947

Yeah I noticed that too, pretty lame.

Toddlers can't play in it? Also lame. Haven't tried the sand box yet.

@vesper - No, the nocd mod is a normal package that goes into your mods folder. It changes nothing.

After that, I had to click on the venue again and wait for Sim B to show up. Sim B shows up and goes into the cab. Also, the option for "Ask 'x' to Leave Date" when clicking on Sim B is stupid. "End the Date" fits better. I suppose that changing the wording is too much work. I'm hoping that group outings didn't get borked.
I had that issue, too.  My sims were married.  Husband asked wife on a date to the theater, she had a car in her inventory and took off in it for the theater.  He didn't have a car, hung around for a few seconds, then went inside to play with the baby.
Really?
Took forever to have them meet back up.

Wife also disappeared for a little bit... she was in the house and I could hear her complaining, but she was nowhere to be seen.  I can't remember how I got her back last night, but she showed back up eventually.  And at some point, they wouldn't get in their bed to sleep, relax, woohoo, nothing.  The action would cancel out as soon as I started it.  I deleted the bed and bought a new one and it was fine.   Huh
And all this on a clean install, no mods.  Oh well.

Sandbox is children only which is fucking ridiculous. The animations would be a little wonky for teens and older, but hopefulyl with all the work on animations people have been doing somebody can enable it for all ages. I tried enabling it to see if it would stretch sims, but sims just plain don't do the animations if they're not children.

They do all teh work to make it so that you can PAINT a usable object on the ground (sims can play in the sand on any sand terrain on a usable lot), and then they go and make it children only. Ridiculous.
