I am curious if one of the intents for this hack is to stop servo from trying to clean up puddles (which constantly breaks cleanbot).
It would be great if something could be done about cleanbot. This thing only picks up litter and water, and half of it's job causes breakage.

He just does a copy/paste from old hacks, but I notice he's changed it now.

I don't think Dizzy is dead, I think he's just absent.  Myybe forever, but that doesn't mean he's dead.

I'm kind of of two minds on this. On one hand I feel like servo is supposed to be like having a maid, he certainly was in TS1, but on the other they also sort of made him the weird sim type of this episode and playable so as a playable sim, it's annoying but if you are using him as a maid, it's helpful.

I'm kind of dissapointed that he's playable as a sim actually because I think the one in TS1 worked really well as a maid and butler and I was kind of looking forward to something like that. Oh well, I guess there are various maid npc hacks.

I wouldn't mind the chores thing if he didn't keep making meals nobody wants, especially when there is already food left from the previous lot he made that nobody wanted.  In any case, he responds perfectly well to Macrotastics, so the chores thing isn't really needed anyway.

Mine is really quite amusing.  Today he did his usual meal-making and as usual, he was the only one who ate it.  Yet again he got fat, but I didn't need to tell him to work-out this time.  I'd installed Inge's pay stuff in the business side of the house and as soon as Servo had finished eating, he ran upstairs to work-out all by himself.  Of course, he hadn't been on long before he was pushed into doing chores, but when I left the lot he was ignoring the instruction and continuing to work-out.  Good bot.

Will he still stuff his face if you have the no-autonomy fridge?

Mine seems to have a preference for desserts and makes odd stuff like Christmas cookies.

I finally got my HD defragged and thus installed OFB last night, and wow, that behavior is INCREDIBLY annoying. It pushes on Servo even when I've got the robot busy with other things, just appears at the end of the queue I already have going. This is going to be one of the first few sanity-saving mods to go in as I do further testing.

(So, if you don't want to be thanked, what IS an appripriate expression of gratitude?)

JM can you look and see if this (although I am sure it doesnt) affects any of the servo's ability to sleep during the day? I am just checking my mods one by one to try and figure out which one is causing it.

My servo can no longer sleep while anyone else on lot is awake, only when everyone else is asleep and then oddly enough sleeps all night instead of just to recharge. The other mods I have in are toddler/elder sleep through night and no auto napping. Its probably those and I will be reporting there as well I just want to ask you also, to see if there is a conflict or some bizarre effect on the sleep code in do chores.

I wouldn't mind if they ate only when told to, but they really seem obsessed with food and stuffing their faces and you have to watch them all the time or they'll eat all day.  Roll Eyes

The newest maxis patch has a fix in for servo. It claims that now servo will not pop up the DoChores and insert itself into queues with 'free will' off.

Does this in any way conflict with your fix JM? I'd rather not take it out, but I do want to patch OFB, especially the car->community lot bug.

Edit: Ah well, nevermind. A few friends tell me that they haven't any problems with it, so I'll just leave it in for now. If my neighborhood goes down in flames, meh, so what. I just either junk it or install the back-up over it. Here's to pushing the button.
