I don't think anybody knows. If you have no-respawn hacks in, they never will.

Since you are using empty templates the game is not going to automatically generate tourist because of how the game is coded. You can use CJ's Fewer Tourist mod (in his mod description he explains how the game is coded) here: http://cyjon.net/node/290. You can also create them yourself; there is a tutorial here at MTS: http://modthesims.info/t/529698.

I play custom neighborhoods and have always created my own vacation neighborhoods. I've used CJ's mod and I've created my own tourist families.

So the game is coded to not generate new tourists at all the way it usually generates new townies?

Speaking of fire alarms..when we had some remodel done they insisted that each bedroom have an alarm. I argued, there is NOTHING in there that is going to get hot! No alarm required in garage, where I have had fires in 2 prior houses due to the dryer. Alarms always choose middle of night to announce that battery is low..by loud noise every few minutes. Bedroom alarms have been killed.
My sims also hate being startled awake because lightning started a fire outside, or the dogs running away, but I like alarms outside because sometimes the rain does not put out the fire. I should look for an alarm that calls the fire department WITHOUT waking everyone up. And stop all that ridiculous lightning! And stop the firemen from telling me to be more careful!

This obviously can't apply to every single food? I've never had a sim get a memory "learned how to make cereal," for example.

Yes, that's exactly it. The no regen/no respawn mods only prevent the game from making new npcs/townies/etc; they can't remove ones that already exist.

A few questions about pet breeding and genetics.

1. There's no way to age a pet down to a baby, is there?
2. Is there a way, via some tool or another, to create baby clones of a cat? (Christianlov's baby pet creator, or in lieu of that, impregnating the poor cat with himself). I want to make some baby Tigers for my adoption pool.
3. If you change a pet's appearance via the mirror, does it affect their genetics?
4. Is there an orange kitten skin? I only recall seeing black, brown, and white.

I'm secretly a Bulbasaur.

1. I don't think so.
2. I would create a breed of Tigers, then buy the Tigers in Pet CAS, and then breed the Tigers and then seed the Adption Pool, I don't think that there is an easier way.
3. I don't think so.
4. I don't know.

I hope that my suggestion for 2. is useful.

That seems to be about right. I checked Andrew's memories in SimPE. (He thinks he's a good cook. [Correction:] I'm being churlish about a very good friend -- he is quite a good cook.) The first food item for which he has a visible "learned to cook" memory is omelettes. For earlier items he has just an invisible "Token - Sim - Foods Cooked Well" memory. Sims seem to get those tokens for everything they learn to cook.

Ah, thanks so much! That makes me feel a bit better, since Hamburgers is indeed just bellow that cutoff. I guess my sims aren't broken after all.

I know this is already answered, but I remembered adopting an orange kitten once, even though as an adult it was a much darker brown.

What would happen If I turn a residential lot into a dorm on the main hood? Would it function well how it like it is, except that adults/older could claim those doors and live in there? No npc like cheerleaders and mascots would do their thing there?

No idea about changing a dorm lot but you can use the doors in the main hood.

If you want it to work as a dorm with cheerleaders etc you also need Lion's Gold record. Google 'base hood uni' and it should show up.

I've turned a residential lot into a dorm in my main hood, but it was used for students. No idea what would happen if you tried to move adults in. If you really want to know, I suggest either making a backup of your game, or creating a test neighborhood and try it. That's how I figure out what will work or won't work with things I want to do in my game.

Also, if you build the lot in Uni and use it in your main hood (for YA's only) YA's will go class without any additional cheats and other YA's will visit as normal (at least that's how it works for me in my game.) Using a lot built in Uni makes the semester tester unnecessary but other mods are needed to allow students to perform their college task outside of Uni.

Silly Question: Does anyone else start up CAS just to "roll the pacifier", but end up with Sims that you like so much that you add them to the game?

Last night I created 8 Sims in a household that way. I'm not expecting any babies (my whole game averages about one live birth per year!), but I have found that, if I don't randomise things at the start, any townie or NPC that the game generates will be Aries and Popularity. I also wanted to make sure that some clothes I'd made available as separates and townified, were working properly. Anyway I made 4 adults (2 male and 2 female) and then used the "pacifier" button to give them 4 teenage children. And I liked what I saw so much that I added them to Baldrair Bluffs. Now I'm not sure what to do with them. I could make them all into townies -- my first idea. (I don't mind having townies related to each other -- I find the Tricou teens fascinating.) Or I could split them in two families and move them into two of the empty houses in the Fledgling Heights scheme. Or I could leave them all together in some sort of polyamorous commune. That's probably the most interesting idea, but it means I'd have to build a house for them.

All Sims are beautiful -- even the ugly ones.

I don't go in to roll pacifier, but it's happened more than once that I go in to make a specific thing but the randomized Sim that comes up when I start it is so nice I make it and add it as a townie. It's nice to have randomized things from time to time, makes combinations that you'd not think of yourself.

If you have questions on how to use SimPE or WW, you're welcome to PM me.

Cats are not orange. They are gingers Ginger cats have personality traits that no other cats have and females are actually quite rare (although we have one).

============
1 - no
2- the pet creator; if it's the one I'm thinking of that looks like the cat on a pedestal statue, doesn't work that way. But there DOES have to be cats in the hood; it lets you pick mother & father & then POOF a baby appears. Um now I'll have to see if cat STRAYS exist!
3 no

Fun fact: You'll never see a solid red/orange cat. They're always a tabby, although occasionally the stripes aren't very visible.

How can build the lot in Uni, but use in the main hood at the same time? Not understanding this contradiction

Move it to the lot bin when you're done building it?

This happened once, a female Sim came out rather lovely. I didn't use her right away but saved her and later ended up using her in my orphanage. She and her sister are happily adopted now.

I have a neighborhood that I use for only building my lots - no Sims live there. When I want to create a lot for college students to use in my main neighborhood, I build it in the college neighborhood associated with my building neighborhood. After the lot is finished, I packaged it to file and then I add it to the lot bin. I then load SimPE and remove all Sim references from the lot while it is in the lot bin. The lot is now available to use in either my college neighborhoods or my main neighborhood.
