View Full Version : Family Avatars COVERING SCREEN -- READ MORE
3rd Mar 2008, 1:57 AM
:help: I'm building a school. A couple expansion packs ago i had built one similar and used boolprop testingcheats to add lots of teenagers to my lot. There were like 60 people there. on the side bar that shows who's living on the lot, the pictures for each person just continued on past the screen vertically until you couldnt seen them anymore. that was great. now when i add lots of extra characters, it starts adding more columns until the entire screen is covered with little people avatars. how on earth do i get my people avatars to go into one vertical line or maybe even just toggle my family pictures all together? trying to explain best i can.

Sounds like EA changed the code because they are allowing for more family members between pets and people? If so, then there's nothing you can do except don't pack your lot so full as to make the game unplayable!

Indeed, that's been hardcoded into the game since.. hmm, OfB? Pets? Nothing you can do about it.

thanx guys. I kinda thought thats what it was. Does anyone know how to toggle that bar then?

Use space bar to toggle between playable Sims. It either goes up or down the column(s) of Sims; I cannot remember right now.

You can't switch it off, unfortunately, except by using cameraman mode - in which you can't use objects or look at motives etc.

Or you could press F10 which will get rid of it and let you interact with objects at the same time. You still can't see Wants/motives though.
