I've recently installed pets and I've downloaded the moreawesomethanyou-pets.zip folder today, so i assume all of my hacks are current ones.

I don't have the option to call friends/family, so is there somethinh I'm missing here?

ETA: I'm obviously losing my mind because I always thought to get the option you clicked on the phone, not on the sim?? Unless that's a recent change, in which case I should either read more posts and/or keep off the booze (or get on it more perhaps)  Tongue

Apparently, Maxis bunged up the code inside phones, so the option had to be moved to the Sim.

I have an interesting new variation on the old problem of sims showing up on your lot when you phone them. Now, if someone calls a child on the phone after children's curfew in the evening, the called child's parent appears on the lot (as if they had come to take the child home) and stands by the entrance port (possibly because there is no child to take home), while the phone conversation with the child goes on as normal.

(If I then interact with the parent, they remain as normal guests until 2 am. And they don't need to be greeted before interacting.)

Hope this is helpful il finding out what's going on... I assume it's AutoYak because of the related problem mentioned above. It could of course be something else entirely.

There are daily upgrades to JMP's most popular hacks... make sure you've got the newest ones from http://www.moreawesomethanyou.com/ffs/pets/hacks or replace "pets" with the last expansion pack you've got.

Well ok someone's cheating here  Grin

There's now a version of autoyak under Pets that's dated 6 November, and it's still the 5th over here!

Anyway -- will download and install, then report. (I thought I was safe, I had redownloaded all updated hacks just last night...)

The file server's on Malaysia time, isn't it?  I always figured that was the explanation for the time difference.

Yup -- there's a 12 hour difference (ahead)  from the US East Coast.

Um, shouldn't that be 15 hours?  The left coast is only 3 hours behind the east coast.

Ok, now running with the latest, shiniest and awsomest version of Autoyak, and the parent still shows up on the lot when I call a child. Further checked that this also happens when I call via "Call Sim", not just "Call Friends" (which had been where I'd seen it previously).

In all cases I've been calling from a mobile. My Sims don't use landlines as a rule :-)

So it is, I had forgotten.

However, I have the latest version of the phone hack installed (yep, checked right now, 23 Oct...), and this is still happening.

Check for conflicts with other hacks. I know several other hacks also mess with that BHAV, and you may be getting the defective version of the code as a result. Look for anything particularly pertaining to child curfew times.

In particular TwoJeffs' Vistor Controller must be loaded after this hack to avoid errors.

As of a week ago, the East Coast is now 13 hours behind Malaysia time since we went off Daylight Savings Time.  We went backward one hour, so it's now a 13-hour time difference.  Auto detect in preferences doesn't seem to work for me, so I manually typed in -13 and that seems to work.

You're right -- I was in Iceland on the day of the change, and forgot to take it into account.  Nevermind...

I'm getting the same result with the parents of children teleporting over.  I know it didn't happen before Pets, but I can't say more precisely when it started.  I don't have Pets, just the standard EPs up to OFB, and I'm only using a selection of hacks from the official OFB directory.  Apart from your hacks, I only have TwoJeffs mascot trophy, crystal ball, and Crammyboy's nudist hack.

Other than Pescado's, I have the following hacks installed:

Paintings stay visible by Twojeffs (updated after Pets)
Food already available + Low food warning + Visitors snacking fix by Twojeffs (not updated)
Moveinall by Pinhead at MTS2 (not updated)
Custom objects placeable on shelves by Numenor at MTS2 (not updated)
Pregnancy wear any outfit from MTS2 (not updated)
StayThingsShrub (not updated)
Timeclock + Help shoppers first by Paladin at Simwardrobe (not updated)
Teleporter shrub by Inge (not updated)

The two that looks most likely to affect phone routines are the teleporter shrub and the moveinall. I will try removing them as my next step.

I also have a number of hacks by Pescado that haven't been updated yet, but I kind of assume that if one of those was the cause it would already have come up here...

IIRC moveinall modifies the TTAB for PersonGlobals, and is therefore the most likely to cause all sorts of mayhem.

The teleporter shrub does not contain any phone globals at all. It puzzles me why you would think it does, actually.

Hello,

long time lurker here. Anyhow, I`m having trouble with the AutoYakYak hack ever since I got Pets. I downloaded the November 5th version of it and the new Phone Hack, but I still don't have the option to Call Friends, Call Enemies, Call Family, etc.

I believe the phone hack works since I have the possibility of programming how many rings before stopping, but I don't have these very essential features. Can anyone help?

All hacks I have come from Pescado, TwoJeffs or Inge (abduction pie, college telephone book, no baby harassment, noemptypotty, etc.) except for hacked objects like Toddler mirror, Merola Multi-Paint

Thanks

The options now appear on the sim instead of on the phone. Check that you aren't just clicking on the phone.

Also, make sure you have Macrotastics installed, it's now a requirement.

If the options now appear on the sim, does that mean that they must have a cell phone?

Nope. They will use the nearest phone.
