Major bug warning
« on: 2014 October 07, 19:12:39 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

I'm generally anti-creating-new-topics, but this is a big one. Two problems suspected to have begun with the 10/1/4 patch:

1. Aging off is borked. As in, if you set other households (non-played, played, even just the townie pool) to not age, they still will. Kills rotational play, obviously. Reference
2. Sim males are getting squinty eyes and lantern jaws most noticeably in the child & YA stage and returning to what they should be at adult. Reference

The supposed "gurus" are aware. It's now a countdown to the next patch and a wait-and-see on how much worse they bork it with that.

Lantern jaws are the new pianos.

Yep, it happened to me.  Sometimes their faces lengthen, and profiles flatten, as well.  Someone in that thread mentioned that maybe the RNG got disabled for testing, and they forgot to switch it back on.

Pes could probably fix this.  We need you, Pes!

That would be very EA-like, but you wouldn't think that would affect things aging of already created sims.

This was posted by SimGuruLyndsay on the official site today:  
    
    "Hey folks - wanted to jump in with an update. It turns out we did make some changes to the sculpt modifers translation between genders BUT it looks like it had an unintentional impact on age  
    changes!! So - we have a fix that we'll get to you as soon as we can. Your details and pictures were really helpful! While you should see some change as Sims age it was not intended to be so
    dramatic or unpredictable."

More proof that they don't actually test their shit before releasing it to the public.  I still find it amazing that after 3 incarnations of the game, they still haven't learnt anything and improved the way they do things.

The patch today supposedly 'fixed' it, but unsurprisingly they actually just half assed it, so still keep the Shimrod fix if you have it.

The new patch did not fix anything, it did not even address the issue. What they have done is REVERT back to prior to the Oct.1st patch. With that patch they added 3 new Cas Modifier files (6 files actually, 3 XML and 3 DATA, but this is 3 "Modifiers", each requires an XML file and a DATA file).

What they have done now is remove these 3 new modifiers! These three were TeenMale, AdultMale and ElderMale; the entire problem is that these 3 did not jive with the YoungAdultMale file which was in the game from the start, since the CaS Demo; the new ones were written a bit differently.

My recommendation is that anyone using this mod keep using it after this patch, the mod does not need "updating" to "comply" with their "changes"; they have changed these by REMOVING!!!!!!!! one third of these modifiers which our sims need, as opposed to, IDK, writing them correctly and leaving them in the game maybe? I am gravely disappointed.

In other news, there's something that's making the save file sizes bloat ridiculously out of control, and eventually causes crashes on saving at times. So far, only people who have put in A LOT of time in the game (over 100 hours) have reported it but surely as time goes on other people will start getting it. One guy is getting save files of 100MB.  Shocked Mine range from 28-54MB right now.

How on earth has anyone gotten 100 hours of play out of this thing?  The Sims Facebook game had more content.

I've gotten the 100hr achievement, but I left it open for a week while I did other stuff.

Well some of it was that. Just leaving the darned thing running to go and do other things etc, but I admit I've played a lot too.  Tongue

I don't remember a 100 hours achievement, so I probably haven't gotten it yet. I've gotten a 4 days straight achievement, but that's Sim days.

It's rather telling that there's an achievement for not giving up in disgust after four in-game days.
