My fortune Sims open bank accounts for their babies when they are first born. I think of it as their college trust fund. Once the account is opened by the parents relatives can also contribute funds to their accounts.
Now what dammit?

I took a screen shot so if anyone wants to p.m. me about it I can show them, but since I still can't figure out how to post screen shots or how to use spoiler tags (don't try to explain. It's sweet of you to do so, but I've had them explained to me a hundred times and still can't do it). But I HAVE been able to upload stuff to the SFS and the files really are there. I just need to know how to direct people to the site.

If you click on the individual items you have uploaded, it will take you to a page which gives you the shareable url info. PM me if you want to.

http://www.theninthwavesims.com/201...ts-for-all.html these are lots I'm talking about. The Conflicting Castles.

Oh, I didn't notice the cautioned disclaimer that it may be imcompatibe in there. Still, doesn't make sense why it would require me to have BV when the premade itself came with just AL. Could it be that the game is misinterpeting and reading it wrong?

Thank you, guys.

If anyone needs anything else, let me know. Seriously, thank you, all of you.

Quick question: The other way, my video card driver spontaneously crashed while loading the game. I also had a dozen Chrome tabs open while waiting for the game to load, but they were all on primarily text-based pages. The last time my graphics driver crashed is when my video card was dying. How much should I worry?

They were packed up in someone's game environment, it's that environment that matters not what they came with. If they have BV installed, according to the in-game installer, you will need BV to install the lots.

Yes, and its also handy that all of Monique's functions are available on community lots. Not all of my sims want or can afford a computer, so it's great to be able to do their online banking etc. from an internet cafe or library.

So if I was to get Monique's computer ... which do I get? I hers here on MTS and then I saw 2 over at InSim supposedly updated by Chaavik one for AL and the other was some issue or other.
#10885 Old Today at 2:05 AM
If you have all the EPs, I'd get Chaavik's version.

If you'd like more variety, Sigmundsims has 3 Macintosh and several Sims3 and Sims4 conversions that use Chaavik's update of Monique's computer functions.

You need either the updated one by Chaavik on InSim and or the ones on Tumblr, I have both. The best one on InSim is the lap top.

One more time...So I have a mega hood, and know I can move SIMS from one sub-hood to another (from the bin). But to move their house would have to put a "stay shrub" on it, and move it separately. I've heard that moving the house with sims IN it will cause shrapnel (you know what I mean). Correct? WHY?!

#10889 Old Today at 2:56 AM
When you move a house with Sims in it to the bin, it essentially rips out their character files from the neighbourhood (as the lot bin is used through all neighbourhoods, rather than per-hood) and leaves a big mess behind. Then putting them back in creates even more of a mess.

Stay shrub isn't entirely the best solution either, as it leaves behind Sim references (though how dangerous those are is up to debate), but there's tutorials to clean those out in SimPE.

"..the lot bin is used through all neighborhoods, rather than per-hood" --translation? I was talking about 1 main hood, and a bunch of attached business hoods...but assume you just mean what I had surmised - that there is "SOMETHING" about sims being in a house when they are moved to another sub-hood, that shreds character files. Which just seems bizarre; you can move Sims that way, you can move houses that way - but not both TOGETHER. And I didn't know that about the Shrub! yuch

When you move an occupied lot to the lot bin, it removes your characters from the neighbourhood in the same way as deleting them from the family bin. Then putting them back in will transfer their incomplete character files back in - as well as a lot of other incomplete files. This messes things up pretty badly.

The lot bin is shared between all the main hoods. If you have just the base game, Pleasantview, Strangetown, and Veronaville all access the same lot bin. However, they all have different family bins.
