I've also seen an opportunity pop up at the Equestrian Center - I can't remember exactly what it was for or the premise, but eventually they DO happen. So there is still an opportunity there that can be taken advantage of even if you aren't in the Equestrian Career. But I'm with everyone else that racing and jumping competitions are part of the Equestrian Career and should only be done if you've rolled that.

Going back to the breeder topic, I had the same idea as Nuts, that to make it more challenging make it more realistic. Breeders don't just do one batch of puppies/kittens, they make their money off multiple batches (even though it doesn't appear we can make money off breeding dogs/cats, but you get my point). So perhaps set the goal to have three or four batches, whether that be multiple batches from one set of animals, or using a seeding pair of animals to breed three more batches down the line. That might be fun and interesting! (Space permitted, of course, but if you get rid of the baby animals, then you'll still only be left with two pets at a time).

And again, as Nuts did, I set my pet's ages to much lower to be more realistic. I believe the default was something crazy, about 3/4ths of the length of the Sim's span. So I lowered it to something like 25 days for cats/dogs and 35 for horses.

OK thanks

and aswell for the breeder challenage you could say like every puppie/cat/foal you sell (give to adoption) you type kaching although this is cheating it is not really in this concept? just an idea! :)

although some people may take this to far and type kaching lots of times!

Sophie, that would make the Breeder roll more of a career than a generation goal/miscellaneous fun. Besides, we tend to avoid rules that involve cheats and/or mods.

Red, I agree that having multiple litters would make the Breeder goal more realistic, but the problem is that not all players want to adopt out their puppies/kittens/foals. And if you don't get rid of some of the extra pets, space becomes an issue.

Honestly, I'm kind of on Melissa's side on this one. I plan to breed my pets regardless of whether I roll Breeder or not, so I'm probably not going to use that roll anyway. But I won't object if you all want to add a Breeder roll. :)

Like Melissa and Giga, I've been experiencing lag in my town now that pets is working. I'm also sick of the drive to school or work taking hours due to the split city of Anne Arbor so I'm portering the important residents to an undecided town. Once I get the new town set up, I'll update since I've had half a chapter done for days.

If anyone has been having problems with the roller not working, you might need to update Java. The IDE I used is older so everyone should be fine anyway, but I thought I'd bring it up JIC.

Yeah, when I found out that putting up pets for adoption just vanishes them forever, I decided I never want to adopt them out.
So, I'm fine with adding a breeder roll for people who want it, but I won't play it.
Just so people know, the family cap is now 10 in Pets. The human limit is still 8, and the total Pet limit is 6.

Do little pets like snakes and stuff count towards the limit?

I'm getting pets soon. =D Doing my best to prepare my game for it now. I do currently have some lag. I've been going through the house trying to delete pictures I don't need, and some shrubs. When generation 3 has died off I'm getting rid of the garden and hot tub.

Some questions for anyone that knows...

1. do lots of items in sims' inventories cause lag?
2. what about the intense art museum I have? It's across town and all, but would it still cause overall lag for my game? should I nuke it?
3. um... any other tips?


It's not TOO bad, but when I played a different town for a bit I noticed things were so fast...

I'm pretty sure that the small pets don't count, only cats, dogs & horses

My only tip would be, in case it all goes horribly wrong, export a copy of your family (and any others you want to keep) so that at least you can recover them if your save becomes unplayable

Oh wow, I didn't realize that adopting out your pets sends them into the ether! Yeah, that's terrible. I probably wouldn't be adopting them out either - I just figured they went into the "shelter" pool and other families would adopt them, and you'd see them running around town with other families.

Man, some really simple things are totally messed up in this EP. =(

As far as including the roll or not, I can go either way. While I like the idea of 'more options in rolls the better', I know it'd be frustrating for those who have rolls they skip and having them keep coming up. So, whatever the majority decides, I'm good with. =)

Sucks about the lag, Becky. But I suppose it makes sense that more clutter = more lag.

I haven't really figured that out yet.. neighbors get pets during adoption scenarios, but those pets disappear as soon as the neighborhood adoption is over, so they aren't real pets. And besides that, none of my neighbors have been getting pets, so I figured they didn't unless you added them yourself. But then I noticed something in the Nraas forums that mentioned pet beds with the home inspections, so I think that SP might be preventing my neighbors from getting pets because they don't have any of the necessary items for them. I ended my play session last night by going around and adding extra beds/cribs and pet items to all of the houses, so I'll find out next time I play if other families get pets of their own. I hope they do. That would be a ridiculous thing for EA to leave out.

calisims
27th Oct 2011, 7:09 PM
The only neighbor I had in BH to gets pets of his own was putting them up for adoption. You'll get a pop up saying that so & so's pet had babies and would you like to come adopt one. And the house will have a special map tag over it indicating there are animals up for adoption. When these adoption notices happen, the family hosting it gets pets out of nowhere, they aren't actually born from any pets they may or may not have had previous to the adoption event.
In my neighborhood, Anson Pleasant has had his puppies up for adoption for a good five or so days, and I eventually got age up notices for his dogs. As far as I know, no other neighbors will adopt these pets, so Anson is stuck with them.
I've heard that if you switch over to play the family hosting the adoption, the pets disappear. Creepy.

mimi250
27th Oct 2011, 7:20 PM
I think that if EA allows pets to disappear after an adoption, it's in order to preserve our gameplay. If every pet given by our active family during 10 generations stays in the neighborood and breed with other pets, I think we'll face troubles and save issues after a few weeks.
My computer performance has decreased with Pets, and I can clearly see how the game runs hard to create and manage all these little minor and major pets.. So, if adoptions are not really adoptions in game, it may be an explanation

As for Melissa, I think I'll chose not giving any pet to adopt rather than seeing them vanish from the pet-family tree

I also get lag! it will stick for about a minute or so then be fine and then the same another 10-30 mins!

I don't mind it all too much though to be honest!
I put some puppies up for adoption and they were still there last time i checked on my other game (if you click on the computer then adopt from shelter the puppies should be there)! But It would be nice to see other EA families running around with our bundles of joy, but I agree with Kai, it could cause even more lag¨

Hey, I just noticed that Twallan updated the Consigner mod to allow selling Pets, major and minor, through the consignment register. It even has price adjustments for good and bad traits, pet age and training, etc.
We can't add an official career that relies on a mod, but for anyone that really wants a Breeder career and uses this mod, it would acceptable to add Breeder to the Non-standard career list when you roll, I think.

SimmingStarfish

Welp... Harper will be moving within the next three chapters or so to a small town, that hopefully doesn't have any issues. I just wanted to forewarn everyone that the next chapters will be rushed in an attempt to get her moved. I'm not sure any writing skills that I do have will be good enough to pull this one off. *shrug*
And thanks for the heads up Melissa! I'm not really interested in a breeder career, but it's nice to have the option.
/me off to attempt and get Harper all set up; and read everyone's updates! : )

Edit: I guess I have read everyone's updates already... so scratch that. You people need to get some new chapters up pronto! Or else I'll actually have to attempt to fix my legacy and I don't wanna right now. :lol:

Won't it confuse later readers who see people playing breeder career, then, if we don't add it? With a big tag that says "re-roll if you don't have X mod"?

Anyway now I need some ideas about a weird occurrence. There's a guy standing outside River's house, on the sidewalk. I think it's Clint Burger, a pianst or something, who died several days ago (so I can't use total annihilation on him). I can't be sure it's him, though, since when I mouse over him no name pops up! He stands completely motionless. I can't click on him at all.

...it bothers me.

Any ideas on how to get rid of him?

ReyaD

I have absolutely no ideas for what could fix your problem Nuts besides maybe reset lot or delete object (But you mentioned he was unclickable...).

So instead I'm just going to be silly.

IS IT SLENDERMAN? RUN, RIVER RUN!

28th Oct 2011, 12:51 AM
Never mind I found a way to destroy him. It was indeed Clint Burger, who was supposed to be dead. x.x HE WAS SUPER CREEPY, JUST STANDING THERE.
There was an option in MC under town, rather than sim.

Also SP just threw a green-skinned lady into my town, Calisims. She had the surname Xu-Rome, meaning she's a hybrid of Rose Rome and... some big-chested Asian from Bridgeport. She was in my Riverview legacy. I don't think Xu or Rome had green skin. o.O

I will check Xu to be certain.

The rules already allow players to use custom careers. BE at one point had a prostitute in her story, one of the custom careers available, and I didn't see much confusion around that. But if you think it's better to have it as a listed career with a note to re-roll if you don't use the mod or want to use the career (I use Consigner, but I wouldn't play the Breeder career if we added it officially. I'm assuming you aren't ever required to play that career even if you have the mod for other reasons), we can do that.
I'm glad you fixed your Clint Burger problem.
I have my SP set to use random names for immigrants, so they don't necessarily take the names of the families they spawn from. But having Titania and Auberon in my bin has led to a few blue and green skinned bartenders here, lol.

Hey, redcoal, you live in Santa Monica? I live in Mar Vista. :D

So, I've been spending the afternoon fixing up the houses in AP, and sometimes editing the Sims who live in them so they don't all go breeding monsters on me. Is it terribly wrong that I'm starting to pick who Tearney will be beating up as part of her Fighter goal when she moves in?

I left it set to the names of the parents so I have less mental work to do when I see immigrants. I always do wonder who their "parents" were.

I think you have to go to the town hall to access all the extra settings.

And no, it's not wrong calisims, it's awesome. ;)

I guess it's just me that's crazy about the breeder thing. Sorry. x.x Since I don't do the equestrian thing, I'd like either breeder as misc. fun or career... ...and if it's not on the actual page, I'll accidentally not roll for it.

But if I'm the only one that cares, I'll just write a note for myself somewhere, lol.

Ugh. Does anyone know if there is a way to make sims appear pregnant when they are not?

Arjun's lady friend is glitched. Even with MC's pollinate (which I used after she mysteriously was not pregnant after chimes), she does not become pregnant. O.o

I had this glitch with Sun, and blamed it on travel, and used instant baby to create Yasu. But I really would like some scenes with the lady and Arjun before their kid is born.

28th Oct 2011, 3:28 AM
I had the same glitch with Marie (And Faith). For Faith I used loose-looking teen clothing and for Marie I just switched them over to a new version of the same city for the pregnancy photos (then MC'd a baby after in both cases).

Buckley
28th Oct 2011, 3:41 AM
Becky, that sounds so frustrating. I don't know how to make a woman look pregnant when she's not, but I have a (probably stupid) suggestion/idea about Arjun's lady friend. I once had that problem where they woman wouldn't ever get pregnant, and then I realized that I had previously changed her settings in story progression to not allow pregnancy. (Or maybe I set the father that way. I can't really remember.) If you perhaps changed those settings and forgot to change them back, that could be why she's not getting pregnant.

Again, probably not the case. But I thought it was worth mentioning, on the off chance.

Just look at the consigner mod it says;


This mod replaces the "Buy" interaction on the Consignment Register with one that allows the sale of potions, gems, rocks, metals, insects, relics, and sketches..

If you have Pets installed, a new interaction called "Sell Pet" will be added to each consignment, general store, and pet store register in town.

Animals sold via this interaction will be placed in eligible homes around town. If no homes are available, the animal is emigrated.

EDIT: What does it mean emigrated?
Definiatly downloading this one i hope to see little pups/kittens running around! :D

YOU CAN ALSO TALK TO PEOPLE AND SELL THEM UR PET AND THEY WILL TAKE THEM HOME!!!!!! AHHH!

Sophieridley:

I found another thing disturbing in Twallan's mod

"Be aware : Buyers are limited to the family funds they have available, so any pets normally higher in price than the available funds will be sold at a lower value."

I don't want my sims to be underpaid after having spent time and energy to educate and raise their pets. It's a pity because this mod sounds very interesting.


I'll start over a new family in Apaloosa (I'm so fond of this neighborood that I want to try again). To avoid corrupt save, I won't install all the downloaded buildings and cc I had previously. I just bring back a few of them in my download folder, one by one.. (Fingers crossed)

So here's my first roll:

GENERATION 1:

Marital Structure: Mixed Single Parent

Number of Children: Five Children

Heir: Child #5

Primary Income: Ambitions Job: Private Investigator

Generation Goal: The Opportunist

Misc Fun: Fashion Diva

Optional Pets Goal: Perfectionist

5 childrens would be hard to manage but it'll be ok since the most of them will be adopted. :rofl:

I won't replace Private investigator by one of the EP careers (EP gift) as it seems to me that this AMB career is nice if we want to take of care of horses or dogs or cats in the same time. ;)

Sophie, if you have any CC beds in your downloads that haven't been updated for Pets, that could be causing the stuck in bed problem. I've heard that just having broken CC beds in your downloads can even effect nonCC beds in your game.
Also, make sure all your mods are updatd. The broken progress bar sounds to me like something and outdated mod might cause.

Colleen, your puppies are so cute! <3

mimi, those are some serious issues with the consigner mod for Pets. I think that's a good reason to keep the career off the official list. If people want to play the breeder career, knowing that they might not get paid consistently for their efforts, that's their choice.

EDIT (for your previous post):
And second thing, what kind of glitches have you met in AP? I'm interested as I'm hesitating a bit, it seems to me that it's a bit hard for a lot of players to manage families in AP and that corrupt saves appear faster than usual :rolleyes:

I've had saves (any town) corrupt on the first save since the update. ;_; Even when I was just saving so that my collections would show up, when I hadn't moved any family in or anything.

So Iíve been toying around with the possibilty of a non-legacy sequel to the Starr Legacy. Itíll pretty much explain what happened to Marie, Bennett and Freddie in Bridgeport and wether or not their mission will be successful. So far Iím planning something like 20-30 longish chapters with room for more depending on what arcs I want to use or if people wanna make me more vampires to kill off in spectacular and gory ways.

Thing is itíll be a heck of a lot of work (Already have bits and pieces done and I donít know if I want to kill my game or kiss it). I do love the story, I love the characters, but I want to share it. And if no one cares I donít think itíd be worth even attempting to organize it for a blog.

So the question is: Would you guys be interested in reading ďTrouble in BridgeportĒ, the official Starr Legacy epilogue?

CinderEmma

That's not good! Why don't you try your game CC free (it shouldn't be hard to put the CC back in if you just move the file) and see if the UI glitches stay.

NutsAndDolts
29th Oct 2011, 2:42 AM
It's definitely one of the .package files causing the errors.

I'm doing a trial and error, putting my CC in one batch at a time. Currently I know it's one of 33 files potentially causing the error.

This is pretty time consuming. xD

CinderEmma

Definitely sounds like it, what a pain.
Personally I would just banish all 33 except nessarity ones, I probably wouldn't put the glitched one back in again :P
I just hope I can find all my CC when I switch computers, I deleted almost all of it to make room for pets on my computer. I even had to clear the recycling bin to make room, bah. Then the whole graphics card thing happened, and all that effort was for naught XD

Is it ok to adopt kids from the neighborood(or from vacation neighboroods)? We can use MC to make other sims join our active households, so I think it will be nice if we are allowed to do it (the only problem will be the age, kids won't necessarily be at the beginning of their age stage, but we can reset this with MC)

NutsandDolts, how many package do you merge in the same time (in one file)? Before having my save corrupt, I used to install almost only S3packs by the launcher, but when I saw the mess it was to delete things and test CC by this way, I chose recently to use only .packages merged. So now I use the Sim3pack multiinstaller to extract my old S3packs files. I'm really glad of this method, but I've read someone advicing to put no more than 199 cc in a merged file. But I'd prefer not to have limit in order to avoid having to manage to much .package files (because of the lags in game when there are too much .package files).

So, if you use to install more than 199 cc in your merged files, I'll know that I won't have to worry about limits.. :)

NutsAndDolts
29th Oct 2011, 12:40 PM
I have 144 merged into one .package file. And that's all I got.

I keep a folder containing all 144 of them separated, because when a mod updates I need to replace that individual file and then repackage.

Thank you Becky, it seems that you're not a big user of cc like me :rofl: .. I've only reinstalled Sandy's items for the moment (aroundthesims) and have got more than 250 files yet.

Did someone test the "traveler" from Twallan? I've just installed it and I think it could give us a lot of fun in our legacy challenge, particulary for our single parents (so much potential partners in other towns :D ). But if someone has tested it, I'll be interested to have all her feedbacks

About travels, I know that from the beginning of this topic, players had been adviced to avoid travels because of glitches and above all the fact that travels increase save size. A few of us have had bad experiences with travelling too (Calisims for instance). But it seems that a lot of bugs have been solved with the last patchs and I've had another interesting information on the french main site: vacation neighboroods and the main neighborood run as different parts of the same process, so even if the save size is increased after a trip, it won't have any consequences on the stability of the game.

So, I think I'll try Twallan's traveller mod for my first single parent. My game works fine since I've recreated a new sims3 folder. No more lags or freezes. I hope my save won't corrupt again (fingers always crossed)

My new sim (her name: Dakota Singleton/ mixed single parent/ 5 childrens/ private investigator/ opportunist/ Fashion Diva/ pets: perfectionnist)

http://www.zimagez.com/miniature/screenshot-857.jpg (http://www.zimagez.com/zimage/screenshot-857.php)

She has two dogs: Fox (female, doberman), and Merlin (male, I don't know the race)

http://www.zimagez.com/miniature/screenshot-1043.jpg (http://www.zimagez.com/zimage/screenshot-1043.php)

The game installed her with only 16 days left in young adult stage, so I'll have to urge for the babies.

Question: Perfectionnist goal for pets talks about learning hunting but there is another thing a dog can learn: to sit. Does it mean that I don't have to learn my dogs sitting?

Question 2: my sim is in the first level of the career (private investigator) but for every mission she does, she earns 650 simoleons (???). It doesn't seem normal to me because it's written "25 simoleons per week" on her career report :| .. Bug or not, the beginning of this legacy is pretty easy. She had been able to buy a big lot with a little house and a lake for only 15.000 simeoleons.. But it seems to me that it's a bit too easy :D

calisims
29th Oct 2011, 3:34 PM
Mimi, I haven't played much with dogs, but my understanding is the tricks they learn, like sit, don't have skill challenges in the Skill tab the way hunting does. Perfectionist requires that you max one skill and complete the skill challenges that go with it. If the sit trick doesn't have skill challenges, it's not part of the perfectionist rule.

I still have naver playd the investigator career, but all the other Amb careers pay a weekly stipend, and you get paid for each job you do on top of that.

I haven't tried Traveler yet. The thing I am most concerned about is the large save file, it takes the game longer to load. But AP is a pretty small town, after I move my legacy there I may want to start traveling, lol.

NutsAndDolts
29th Oct 2011, 4:31 PM
I must be the only one who dislikes AP as a whole. The lighting seems pretty bad; like it's perpetual dusk or something.

Also something about the pool shaped like a dog bone makes me want to run away screaming.

I like animals, but I tend to hate "animal people". You know. People who think their precious widdle cuddwy fwuffy is more important than children, friends, any form of human life, etc. My second cousin's girlfriend insists on taking her misbehaving dog to every family event at what was once the place I lived; it's a constant annoyance in the kitchen, it's an ugly dog, it smells, and it DESTROYED several of my things, and the lady's response was "awww isn't that adorable."

When I was little my step-grandmother also once told me she loved things in this order: her god, her DOGS, then her husband, then her sons, then her stepdaughter (my mother), then the grandchildren.

I'm under a dog? Seriously?


I loved all the new combination lots though. And the pier. And the criminal "warehouse"... lol...

Buckley
29th Oct 2011, 4:58 PM
I know what you mean about the dog pool, lol. I also detest the cat shaped pond too, because it seems to cutesy. I am a complete animal nut, but my dogs would come after my family and friends. I hope you don't take this the wrong way, but your step-grandmother seems either really insensitive or really thoughtless. I can't believe she'd put her dogs before her own children. That seems extreme.

The thing I love the most about AP is the terrain and the architectural consistency. The Midwestern style is beautiful, imo.

1.3 - The Thief's Daughter: http://sabolegacy.blogspot.com/2011/10/13-thiefs-daughter.html

If I meet someone who puts their dog or cat ahead of their kids or their priorities conflict heavily with my own I tend to stop speaking with them. Frankly, they terrify me. I mean... if their toddler sat on the dog and hurt him would they yell at the baby? I can't understand the die-hard animal people.

calisims
29th Oct 2011, 5:10 PM
I love the terrain and architecture in AP, too. I've been thinking about bulldozing the giant dog & cat parks and deleting the giant lots to create two smaller parks. This would free up some space for bars & such. I moved the bookstore/spa rabbithole onto the same lot as the business/restaurant lot (it has a huge parking lot, so I reduced it from 12 parking spaces to six, making room for the extra rabbithole building. That freed up a 20x30ish space I used to place the playground park that came with the town life SP.
I've also been retrofitting some of the Riverview farms for placement in AP. The McDermott house, the Joy house and one called Sunnyside acres or something.

29th Oct 2011, 5:14 PM
Now that I'm older, I'd skip "thoughtless" and "insensitive" and go straight for "terrible human being".

Because she's done worse than that, lol.

Anyway yes... there was a lot of thought put into AP, and if not for the lighting issue (is it only me?) I would consider just editing the parks to be less weird.

Edit: wow, neat idea. Putting some Riverview farms and such in sounds really neat.

<3 Riverview.

29th Oct 2011, 5:27 PM
Sadly, the barns in Riverview houses aren't wide enough on both stories to accommodate the the new barn doors. But the McDermott barn has open sides that horses can get through, so I was able to put a box stall in there.
On the Joy house and Sunny acres or whatever, I just kept the barns as garages. LOL, not every house has to have horse accommodations.

I don't think I'm going to add pet accommodations to very many Barnacle Bay houses. I don't really want a million new pets clogging up my game.

Hmmm, perfectionnist goal for Pets sounds to be very very painful.. I have it in Generation 1 and it's so hard... First, to achieve the skill challenges, every pet have to find 50 gems, 50 stones and 50 metals.. It's hard because each day, there are only a few stones displayed all around the town and the dogs have to spend all the day running around and digging to find these stones and metals.. and they always come back home in the night, depressed, exhausted and starved...

I think it would be better to focus on the skills only: learn to hunt and why not learn to sit.. and the skill challenges could be linked to a kind of " awesome goal" (we can create an awesome goal for pets too.. ). But it's not fun and very stressful to achieve this goal in only one short pet life

Random question: For mixed single parent do 'time machine clone' and 'clone voucher' count as separate?

NutsAndDolts
30th Oct 2011, 4:18 AM
Clones count as biological children, so you'd still need to adopt one. Hope that helps.

DEP was indeed causing my crashes upon starting the game. Now I have resolved that, and played my legacy family for a few minutes. I had a random freeze shortly after Thalia brought her child home, though. I don't know if it's one of those things that would be resolved by moving, or what. More testing required.

My boyfriend was fiddling with DEP earlier, but he yelled at me pretty loudly when I suggested that might have possibly affected sims. v.v

I got good news on the computer front and scary news. Good news, mom will pay for the computer for sure, I may or may not contribute my $175 depending on if Mom decides its my Christmas gift or not.
Scary news is, mom wants the computer to be a surprise. I don't like surprises, especially with computer stuff. She's trying to reassure me that my sister will be there to help, but she's not as good about the computer parts as she is working with computer programs and stuff. And even there I excel her in some spots. I just tend to freeze when people watch/expect from me, so I look more incompetent with them. Plus I say thingy a lot, even when I know the word, which doesn't help XD
Anyway, I made a board trying to see if I can get some people to help me explain to her (and my sister and I) what we should look for in a new (well, refurbished) computer. But I felt like ranting here, in the hopes that somebody will understand the anxiety I'm feeling about leaving this whole thing to my mom, who struggles with using Microsoft Word. *shakes head* I love my mom, and she's not stupid, she's just easily impressionable with computer talk. It's shiny and looks good, she'll buy XD My sister helps, but still, I think I would do better if I was there. *hmph* Though at least she's a good bargain shopper, I do love that :)

Oooookay... since everyone else is doing this, I thought I would do the same. I created a few families (and took some of my favorite legacy characters) and placed them in the new town for the Harris'. It's a few chapters away before they actually move, but here's a short intro/background for the few families I moved over:

I know, I can't wait to start playing again, I have quite a bit before Irish/Kipp (and probably Isadora and Calloway) move! They'll probably be 1/4 through young adult before I decide to move them, though maybe a bit earlier if glitches come back earlier then expected.

I am unfortunately getting some major lag in Anne Arbor so I don't have a choice. I love Anne Arbor too. Poo. Oh well, fresh starts are always fun... or something.

That's exciting about your computer Emma. It will be nice to get a new one, so you can sim and such. That's all you do with a computer right? There's no need for that other useless mumbo-jumbo that takes up hard drive space.

Edit: I've had this happen before, but it never ceases to be hilarious. Uther pranked the computers in the library and then proceeded to use ALL of the computers he just booby-trapped. So now he has a negative moodlet that lasts three sim days or some nonsense like that. :wtf: Stoopid simz prankin' themselves.

In most of the cases, playing a new EP with an old save is not a good idea. A lot of players have to move or start a new neighborood because of the issues they have with all the new features.

I hope you won't have to move, but you'll probably have to do it..

@ Cece: Oh Marie and Angel will be playing a role in the current generation (if everything goes according to plan), especially regarding their past with vampires. I don't have it entirely hashed out yet, but they'll be in there. Also, the last time I checked the Starr's were already expanding (Marie and Angel sure work fast don't they?).

Also, that picture of Sybil exercising was hilarious. She was a lazy bum in the Dennis Legacy... nice to see she is doing something productive besides popping out children and complaining endlessly about it. *shakes head*

Update: Beatrix and Foster are apparently dating/hooking up, but Foster has already been with two women since I played so I don't know how long that will last. :lol:

Just for laughs, while I was playing around and making my Greek sim Cronus, I put all the sims I had downloaded from you guys into a neighbourhood so I could play when I got frustrated lol. Pia Starr has a daughter with her girlfriend, I think Foster Enmity is dating/possibly married because of a whoopsie and Pavel Archer had a kid (he was pregnant because his eventual wife was an elder)... Loose bunch...

ReyaD
30th Oct 2011, 8:44 AM
YES! BABIES! <3

Hayley is carrying their second child, so Sybil should be happy this time around. I THINK they had a boy but I can't quite recall. Eh, (s)he'll probably end up in the story sooner or later. Currently Hayley and Sybil are neighbors to my family. (I SWEAR Sybil is stalking them. The house next to the Sabos was empty when they bought it, and later that night Aarun got an invitation to Sybil's party... next door. It freaked me out a bit. And Crissy just aged up into a teen. I need to change her hair but she's really adorable feature wise.

*Snerk* Oh Foster... I love him. He never fails to amuse. (Resist, Bea! Resist! I know its hard, but try!) ... then again, he does make good babies if I recall correctly.

30th Oct 2011, 8:49 AM
Goodness. I'm seriously having a laugh over how creepy Ms. Sybil is being. She was certainly a stalker when I played with her, but she has upped the ante since then I guess.

Foster is hilarious. He managed to break up one marriage and *I believe* has already had a kid, but I can't remember. It looks like Foster-spawn will be overtaking Meadow Glen if he has anything to say about it. Not that I mind, necessarily.

I agree. It's better to avoid custom cribs and custom beds during a moment. They are hard to fix, and it'll be a long time before all the creators rework their beds and cribs and upload them on their site. I've removed all my custom beds and cribs too

Might have a go at making your pups and yang the kitty if Cali would be ever so nice and post a full body pic ;)
I hope you don't mind me making them!Aww thanks Sophie! I would love to see a Sim version of my pup(s), if you wanted to take the time. :)

Melissa, Yang is awesome. I just love tubby kitties. If Sophie makes a Yang cat and uploads it here, I may just have to steal her and add her to my town.

Ali, your kitty is beautiful! All these cat pictures are making me want to get a cat...

As for the Perfectionist goal, I don't know if this would be plausible or not, but what if we change it to only completing one of the skill challenges and maxing the skill? Again, I haven't actually played with an animal yet, so I don't know if that would make it any better or not. Just thought I'd throw that out there for consideration.

Honestly though, when my family gets a pet, I'm probably not going to play with the new pet-only rules. Cause I want to decide how my pets spend their time. And more goals will probably just stress me out, lol.

calisims
30th Oct 2011, 5:49 PM
I like that idea for the perfectionist goal, Colleen, that might be less stressful than trying for all of them.
For now I guess we can consider the pet goals as in testing, and no one should feel stressed about completing them. When I get my legacy moved to AP (still working on the house) I'll go ahead and voluntarily try out the cat perfectionist goal, just to see if I can do it, and how long it takes.

My legacy game is up and running again for now. Haven't had a freeze or crash in a while.

For a while I was considering having to move the family, so I downloaded Redwood Harbor. It's very lovely. I played Cricket and Jada (from Melissa's last legacy) there with a little sheltie for about ten minutes. The dog promptly dragged her toys behind the house, into the ocean where I could no longer retrieve them. Lulz. Also the ice cream truck showed up and Jada had some ice cream. EXCITING.

I'll need to find a way to disable the fog if I'm to play in that town, unfortunately. I don't even know if I can. I think the creator used fog emitter effects to create the waterfalls, but I couldn't find the emitters. And fog is everywhere.

Here are some pics of Cricket and his dog in Redwood Harbor:

http://i.imgur.com/OjAHG.jpg

The place looks a lot like areas my grandparents took me to when I was small, so it brings back the warm fuzzies, despite the lag.

Luckily my legacy has been behaving, and I don't think I'll have to move.

Don't worry, Nuts. The story line is more just the fact that they moved INTO the town. I won't make them suffer and I'll let them live their own lives. (But no promises Michael Mason won't break them up. He's already broken two marriages and had 4 kids by 4 different mothers. He's giving Foster a run for his money... but isn't nearly as hot)

Once I had Cronus and Rhea, the 6 Gods everyone knows were easy, I just 'played with genetics'. They don't look exactly how they will in game, but that's only because I won't be playing with them until I have my own computer... But anyway, here's the rest...
Rhea will be an elder in game though, and the rest are in order of age

Buckley
31st Oct 2011, 3:10 AM
Glad you're still with us Lady Awesome. :) I need to catch up on updates too.

So I was working on Appaloosa Plains today, and I got to thinking about my legacy. I think the reason I haven't been updating lately is cause I haven't really wanted to play it. I planned out this (somewhat complicated) story line for why my heir would become a thief even though his family is super wealthy already, and I'm dreading playing it through. So, even though he's only a child right now, I'm considering aging him to YA and moving him to AP by himself, with only as much money as a starter family. I would still keep the same blog and all, but my story would jump (a lot) and all the old characters and stuff would be gone.

But I'm not sure yet. Cause I liked some parts of my story, and I liked my generation 2 heir. And I wouldn't be able to move in to Melissa's beautiful house for a while, which would make me sad. I just wanted to let y'all know what I am thinking about, so it wouldn't be completely out of left field if I decide to do that. (Also: Melissa, I swear I will move into your wonderful house soon. I hope you're not upset that I haven't used it yet. It's not because I don't like it, because I really do love it. :))

EDIT: OMG Teal! They're beautiful! I love Zeus. :lovestruc Probably cause I know he's such a player. (I always go for the wrong guys, lol.)

EDIT 2: Are you gonna have Zeus and Hera be married? I'm just curious how you're handling the whole incest issue, hah.

CinderEmma
31st Oct 2011, 3:17 AM

Alright, I laboured over my chapter and I'm cranky. I love Teal's sims too, but Irish and co wants some attention! Please?

Does anybody have a really hard time with writing relationship types they haven't experienced? I'm struggling with Irish and Tyson, as it makes me long for my father, who's a cruel manipulative bastard who shouldn't ever be near children. Not long for him the way he is, but the way regular fathers are (like Tyson).

teal_moonshine
31st Oct 2011, 3:42 AM
Poseidon has dark blue highlights, with dark green tips too... I love him... They're all quite beefy too.

And Buckley, the way I'm going around the incest thing, because he's supposed to be married to Hera and had children with his other sister Demeter, what I'm doing is, using another saved sim of Hera (with some slight changes) to marry Zeus, and a saved version of Zeus to marry Demeter. So same genetic fodder without the messy incest deal.

And sorry for taking away the spotlight from Irish and Co. I didn't mean to.

EDIT: Would it be possible for you to just put up their household as a .pack file? I think they're both corrupted because I tried to add them into the game anyway and they forced my game to crash.

EDIT 2: Even with the twins. I promise I won't showcase them in game until you have. I just REALLY want Archer genetics in my town (especially since Arthur seems to have become a monk. He's flirted with one girl and that is IT for him romantically! You're kill me, Arthur!)

Yeah it was a lot more than 12, which included Helen of Troy, Minos the King of Crete, the Muses and the Graces, but anymore than the 12 well known gods/demigods and I'd have a town full of only Greek mythology... The town wouldn't last long lol

Glad you're still with us Lady Awesome. :) I need to catch up on updates too.

So I was working on Appaloosa Plains today, and I got to thinking about my legacy. I think the reason I haven't been updating lately is cause I haven't really wanted to play it. I planned out this (somewhat complicated) story line for why my heir would become a thief even though his family is super wealthy already, and I'm dreading playing it through. So, even though he's only a child right now, I'm considering aging him to YA and moving him to AP by himself, with only as much money as a starter family. I would still keep the same blog and all, but my story would jump (a lot) and all the old characters and stuff would be gone.

But I'm not sure yet. Cause I liked some parts of my story, and I liked my generation 2 heir. And I wouldn't be able to move in to Melissa's beautiful house for a while, which would make me sad. I just wanted to let y'all know what I am thinking about, so it wouldn't be completely out of left field if I decide to do that. (Also: Melissa, I swear I will move into your wonderful house soon. I hope you're not upset that I haven't used it yet. It's not because I don't like it, because I really do love it. :))



I'm not upset about the house, don't feel rushed to move into it.
I would also miss Ryder if you decide to skip ahead on your legacy, but you have to do what you have to do.

About fixing up AP, I ended up bulldozing both the cat and dog parks. I also deleted the empty lot the dog park had sat on, and in edit world added 3 empty lots, 2 20x30s and a 20x40. I plopped down the 20x30 cat and dog parks in the bin (they both kind of suck, lol, but I don't know how much use I'd get out of either anyway. And they don't have cat shaped ponds or bone fountains.) On the 20x40 I plopped down a bar I found here on MTS, it was made for Riverview, in a big red barn, so it fits into this town's theme very nicely.
When I tried deleting the giant space where the cat park used to be, the game wouldn't let me place any smaller lots. (When you muck around with deleting lots, always do it in a spare copy of the world, because you might not be able to replace lots you delete forever). So what I ended up doing with the space is I took the Remington's Ruse house from Riverview and turned it into a 'hotel' with a bar lounge.
Anyway, just a couple of ideas.

Buckley
31st Oct 2011, 2:31 PM
Thanks for the ideas Melissa! I always thought it was funny that they had a "cat park". That would never work in real life, lol. But I guess it's the Sims, so it's not strictly bound by "reality". Hah.

How much work was involved in converting the Remington Ruse house? I know exactly which one you're talking about (the giant mansion on the hill, right?), but I've never played in it so I'm not familiar with the interior. Was there a lot of structural stuff? I can redecorate okay, but roofs and walls and layouts give me fits.

And lol at the red barn. I already downloaded it and added it, but in a different lot. Great minds... ;)

So are you only going with those three bars (the two you mentioned plus the one that ships with AP)? Also, are you adding a film backlot? I probably wouldn't if Ryder wasn't employed as an actor. I downloaded the 40x40 backlot from here MTS and placed it on the 40x50 lot by downtown. It had a house on it with a couple living there (I can't remember their names, but they have three baby animals), but I moved them to the empty 40x50 lot in the hills next to all the rich people's houses. I'm not sure if I'm going to keep it that way though. Would I be allowed to re-roll Ryder's career if I remove the backlot from AP?

Sorry for all the questions! One more: Did you add houses to the empty lots? I already populated the pre-existing houses with beds and cribs, but I haven't added any more structures yet. I want to keep the architectural style similar, and I haven't yet had time to scour the uploads section for ranches and Midwestern style houses. If you did add more housing, did you build them or download them? (And thanks again for the tips! :))

Revamping the Remington house did take some work. I didn't change the exterior at all, but the interior is kind of a mess. I think it was based on the Winchester Mystery house in San Jose, because it has a lot of secret room and stairs to nowhere. It must be a nightmare to play.
But what I did was remove the stairs to nowhere, cover the giant hole n the floor with floor tiles, an removed excess walls, getting rid of secret rooms. I put a bar in the main hallway and put a dance floor and band instruments where the kitchen used to be. I'm using the bedrooms on the second floor as 'hotel rooms'. Sims won't stay there or anything, but your Sims can use those rooms for woohoo if they need to do that away from home for some reason. *nudge, nudge, wink, wink*
I'll try to post pictures later so you can see what I did. The lot is originally 40x40, and I placed it on the cat park lot whch is like 62x62 or something. So it made extra room on the grounds. I added trees, a small parking area, and two gnubb sets on the back lawn.
If you bulldoze the cat park, make sure to turn on buydebug when you enter that lot. Bulldozing removes everything except spawners, and the cat park hastwo fish spawners in that pond. So, unless you put another pond in there, you'll need to delete the fish spawners, or have fishes swimming in the grass there.

And yeah, I'm just having the three bars in AP. I did download a small dance club and sports bar by Daluved that wouldn't look to bad in AP, and they are both really tiny 10x15 type lots. But I haven't decided if I want to play them yet.
I'm not adding the film lot (and I've banned celebrities and paparrazzi), so I won't be doing the film careers here. I think it would fine for you to reroll Ryder's career if you don't want to add that lot to your town.

I've added a few houses to the empty lots. And I've bulldozed a few one bedroom houses and replaced them. Mostly in cases where they've built starters for people wanting to do horses. So, tiny one bedroom houses on huge lots with big fields for horses. I've been using lots I've taken from Riverview and retrofit for pets (also, adding more beds & cribs to them).
I built Tearney's house myself just for the neighborhood. I just moved them in yesterday, and I love my new house. I built on a 30x40, across from the Marshall family (the ones with the kitten, puppy and foal, their bio says they've been having trouble having a baby. And they have one of the only houses with a crib. Whereas there are like 5 pregnant Sims that ship with this town that don't have cribs, lol)
I have some of my houses I've built in the past that will work in this neighborhood, so I'm planning to drop a few of them in, too.

Oh man Cali, you make my town editing seem lazy XD. All I did for Neverglade was add lots, bulldoze and add a 60 X 60 in the mansion area for the backlot. And plop in some cheap housing.

Although now I may need to replace the school, diner and town hall. The school because prom no longer appears, the diner and town hall because it won't let Aarun stakeout. But I only rolled P.I. once so maybe I'll let it slide.

There's also an option in Story Progression for how many maternity days sims should get (which then gets adjusted according to traits apparently) although I don't know whether that affects the active household or not

I feel horrible admitting this, but I haven't actually played my legacy save since before I installed Pets. I pulled it up today, and guess what? Lag. The worst I've ever had. And freezes. I don't know what is wrong. It was tolerable before Pets. Appaloosa Plains is fine, and when I play in a new save of Anne Arbor there is no lag. But in my legacy it freezes all-the-time! I mean, I can't go for more than five minutes (Sim time) without a freeze.

...Which sort of forces my hand. I was going to play a bit more in Anne Arbor (to try and finish Ryder's story) and then move Elijah by himself as a young adult to Appaloosa Plains and start him off like a founder (no money, skills, etc). But it looks like I'm not going to be able to finish Ryder's story. Which makes me sad. :(

EDIT: How does the expansion gift work? If I wanted to change Elijah's generation secondary income from job hopper to Equestrian career, I could?

They were both made by 'play with genetics' because I needed their parents so they could be made cousins.

3 questions about the legacy

1) for those who use Simreality's neighboroods (brooklyn heigts, redwood arbor, anne harbor and so on..).. Are they populated? I would want to send my sim to Redwood with Twallan's traveller but It'll be annoying if she can't meet anyone. Otherwise, I would have to install families by myself and I've to say that it's the only thing I really hate in the game..

2) My sim and Gavin Pinkerton just got married (Gavin is one of the richest man in town). She has to be single parent and has already 2 kids. But I've no intention to keep Gavin on the lot, so it's ok for the rule.. but Gavin owns a car in his inventory, which value is 105.000 simoleons!! , He brought 16.000 simoleons when he moved in, and this money was much needed.. But I'm attracted by the 105.000 simoleons as I see what I would be able to do with it, particularly for the house.. Is it ok to sell Gavin's car? Are single parent who choose to marry are allowed to use their short-time partner's funds?

calisims
2nd Nov 2011, 4:58 PM
There is a version of Anne Arbor that comes populated (it's a save game rather than a world file). But the rest are all unpopulated.

That's a tough question about the short term partner's funds. I'd say they are allowed to keep the funds brought in by the marriage, and you are allowed to keep in him in his current career and use his income, but getting 105k for selling the car seems kind of sketchy to me. I would let him keep it and take it with him when he moves out.

It's so much fun to watch various Legacy characters around town. I'm so heartbroken that some of the older ones are beginning to die out. (Morand died during my last play session. Broke my heart, man. He had three children and one grandchild). Faith hooked up with a guy twice her age and ended up marrying him when he knocked her up with a "woopsie" baby.

When Gen 2 officially takes over I might add in another few families because it will seriously break my heart if I don't have any familiar faces out there. I'm thinking Foster (With a different surname), Lukas and one or both siblings, River and Nick (I WILL GET THEM TO WORK. MARK MY WORDS. *Eye twitch*), and maybe Tearney's siblings. I know where I want two of gen two's kids to come from but no plans for the third.

EDIT: Oh and Giga guess what I just found out? No one in the family has Sybil on their relationship panel. Jake and Aarun are both friends with Hayley but no one even knows Sybil! It's official. She actually IS stalking them!

Could it be CC that crashes River and Nick in your game? To my knowledge you have everything they're wearing so I didn't bother changing them.

When I go to CAS I open up the pre-made sims bin and click on (for example) River. It opens to the normal CAS page but she's invisible, no tabs are open and the "basic" panel is blurred out so I can't click it. And if I click on hair or clothing every option for all ages and genders is available (instead of just those for YA - female).

To create a .pack file I think you just need to go to edit town, click their household and press "share household"... I THINK. Its the one that doesn't say "Save to bin".

Dammit River your perfect genetics are taunting me.

Family Man Challenge anyone?

EDIT: No seriously. If Melissa gives me permission I will TOTALLY do that challenge with him. And as many female sims as I can find from the legacies.

Hey, you have my permission, as long as you share pics.

Im behind in legacies AGAIN. But Also Alma I wouldn't panic too much, in april I crashed my car into a power pole, and landed in a ditch on the open road. (not really open when the ditch is a meter away from the road) I burst my bowel. But I recovered super fast and my daughter didn't even get a scratch. Just take it easy and give you friend lots of love!

ALSO HAPPY BDAY FOR YESTERDAY EVERYONE XX

*Salute* On it, ma'am.

... I'll probably end up starting tonight after my party xD. Oh Foster. Why must you be so alluring?

No one minds if their shared sims get knocked up by him, right? No? Awesome. Cause no one's safe with this play boy around (Well that and I've been dying to use Red County for a game but its an empty world so I need to fill it with sims).

So I can't remember who it is that wants teen!Glynnis's hair, but I found the link to it, so if you see this, PM me or quote me or something and I'll hand it over. xD

Update coming soon~

And thank you for all the well-wishes. My friend's fine, just really shaken up and carless. No insurance, so that's going to be pretty sucky. >.> But no one got hurt in the collision at all, thank goodness.
