Olivia Riley's gravestone is placed at the Belladonna Cove art museum! Weird, I knew that some graves are in the Ganesend Grounds but I didn't know graves were anywhere else. I wonder if there's more...

Great, MTS is back online!

Today there was a spontaneous "burp contest" at one of the dorms. The cow mascot entered the cafeteria and stopped right behind a table where a sim was sitting down, having some food. The man stood up, faced the mascot and when the began to burp each other right in face. Plain silly if you ask me but some may find it funny. I have not seen that before so to me it was a discovery.

Then I did a sort of strange discovery that the mail man walked by the lot very often but he did not place any mail in the box. ?? Strange! On the very first semester my sim did get some bills but he have not have any since then. Is that supposed to happend and if Yes, why did the mailman walk by every now and then?

This is a potentially serious glitch. I think there's a fix for it; but you may have to just move them onto another lot.

"A potentially serious glitch" seems kind of dangerous but have no idea. Could/should the lot be played or is it better to leave? The sim living on the lot is just to be starting on his last semester so he will soon be leaving anyway. Yes, the lot seems to be kind of glinchy. Sims (non plyable) sometimes becomes a little transparent in the eavning but I think it was somehow related to the old videocard (sorry, I don' want to make this a help issue but I just had to ask).

The thing about non-mail delivery is that it means the game has lost track of certain references for that lot, which could have wider implications. I'd move lots and bulldoze this one.

Are you fully patched? I have this vague idea that transparent dormies were something fixed in a patch, but my memory is far from reliable.

Yes, my game if fully patched (all patches for the EP:s I have). I only got the "CD" version of the Uni patch but I guess it makes no difference. Oh well, I guess I should move the sim (and his friend) to an other lot. In the Uni subhood (only added one) I got sims at 3 different doorms. I can not tell if the problems accurs in the other doorms because I have not played them for so long (sims only at 1:st year). But I could check that out next weekend. If the other lots are OK I can move the sim and his friend there.

Sims can apparently steal people's gnomes (I didn't see who it was), my sim [Jessica Peterson] autonomously got the action 'Steal Back Gnome' while at work. To do that she walked off to the edge of the lot, did the devious finger thing the evil sims from the sims 3 do and then disappeared for a while. She came back and said 'I have stolen back my gnome, it is in my inventory'. Could be because of the bad reputation she has.

That's been in the game for ages, but generally it's Grouchy sims who will steall gnomes, and a sim has to be pretty Grouchy to go steal it back.

I have one household where the sims fight over who gets to go steal the gnome back this time. Sometimes more than one goes out, and somehow they both return with a gnome...

I never throw parties but while planning to have my sim call another, I found out that there is something called a Building Party. Has anyone done this?

It's just a regular party, where the guests are the other residents of that apartment complex.

That there is a serious gender imbalance of playables in the Uni hoods. Between the three, there are 27 male playables but only 20 female. Probably unnoticeable if played as shipped, but kinda problematic when you attach the cleaned versions to an empty main hood. I'm hoping Samantha Ottomas's unborn twins are both girls. Maybe this is why all the spawned professors are female?

That while on a community lot if the Unsavory Charlatan mugs someone, even if that person is not a playable, you can report him. The things I miss out on when I never need to use the telephone to leave lol

Grouchy points are not needed to steal it back. If you can remember (although it was ages ago) Opal from my OWBC with 10 nice points stole back their gnome.

I discovered the importance of backing up everything frequently.

The main harddrive on my year-old computer failed last week, taking a lot of things with it Luckily, the secondary drives didn't fail (so I didn't lose any of the most current back-ups I have of my neighborhood files, plus a semi-recent back-up of my downloads), but I'm kicking myself for not doing the big back-up I had planned two days sooner. Most of my computers have lasted at least 5 years before their first screw-up, so I guess I got cocky about the longevity of harddrives and computers in general.

So I'm going to be re-installing Sims 2 over the weekend. Since I'm going to get resets across the board anyhow, I'm going to install the Happy Holidays pack as well so that my game can have Santa "dropping off presents" in the bathroom and electrified reindeer. Woo!

(At least I didn't lose anything irreplaceable. This computer wasn't as "lived-in" as previous ones, yet.)

Sims can do yoga on coffee tables. Whether this is default game behavior, or a weird mod I don't know I have, I don't know. I had the option show up on a custom fish tank in the past, and I discarded it as being something with that fish tank. But now I realized it shows up on maxis coffee tables too =O I very rarely have empty space on them, so I guess that's why it's taken me this long to notice.

It's vanilla game behaviour if I recall, I remember reading it in the Prima guide years ago but I never managed it myself. Up until now I thought it was something that they took out of the game but forgot they had removed it while writing the guide.

I am dumb, dumb,, dumb. I knew that I could hold down the shift key and place multiples of objects from the buy catalog. But today I didn't realize cap lock was on and kept wondering why every single thing I bought had more than one

Elder sims may put a fight with the Grim Reaper

I think that happened because I made her die of old age, so she never achieved any wants or her LTW. Oopsies. Her grandchildren are lovely though :D
