I just discovered that my paper girl is trolling my Sim. My current house had the trash can in the backyard, which makes disposing of the old newspaper time-consuming as my Sim had to walk around the house after picking up the paper at the front. So I placed the can at the front. From that moment onwards the paper girl dropped the newspaper at the back door.

I accidentally discovered that you can make floor openings between two levels of basement using the platform tool.

This will be very useful for future builds.

Edit:
It only works when deleting using ctrl and the diagonal platform tool.
You can also apparently just use any floor tile to fill the hole again to get your desired shape.

Discovered that if you click on a negative moodlet (like hunger, energy or bladder) the sim will go and fill that need, like going to eat, going to pee and to sleep. Not very useful but it's nice to know. :D

LOL, I'm going to assume if you place a recycle bin by the back door now, she will start throwing the paper up on the roof or into a treehouse just to teach you a lesson (of some kind).

I think they are all part of some secret cult, because the paper girl in Dragon Valley always placed them in a circle at the very border of the lot's front, and a very neat one at that, and the one in Moonlight Falls always threw it under one of those bushes that don't fade when you move the camera closer in order to find it.

See?

(Gasps) Those aren't newspapers. Those are Journalistic Gnomes congregating and wearing very clever disguises.

Ah, and you mean the girls are just a tool for their nefarious plots?

I just discovered that while honey and beeswax count as fruit in the consignment skill they do not count as produce for the gardener career. (Although I've read somewhere that both still count as produce for the omniplant opportunity chain.)

Ah, and in case you're still interested. I changed household and the papergirl now places the paper neatly in the empty area between mailbox and front door. Trashcan and recycle bin are to the left and right of that area. I think she got the message now.

ETA: Well, I think I just found another use for beeswax. I'm pretty sure that my Sim had 4 pieces of beeswax in his inventory before he cooked Stu Surprise. Now there are only 2.

Not really "discovered", just realized something...
My alien (love to play aliens! When I get one, I keep 'em! This one is half alien) got hold of a genie lamp!

Wished for happiness! Wished for beauty! What else? Money? You know he can drop space rocks and doesn't need money. Love? He's a teenager! (And I wasn't interested in the teenagers who showed up when he tried to wish it.)

"So, whadda wanna wish for?" Andy the Genie asked.

I discovered that divorce can be undone via a smooth recovery. Major facepalm moment, too, although I like that there is a bit of a cooldown period after break-ups before those sims can become friends again.
