What does uncanny valley mean, though?

Basically, it's when something with human likeness looks real, but not quite real enough to the point that it's creepy.

I had never heard of it until reading it on these forums either, but with TS3's graphics, it's definitely possible to get there. I prefer TS2/TS4's graphics by a long shot, tbh. So much more fun & cute to me.

I don't know what the hell is going on. Could it be an NRaas thing? 'Cause I have a bunch of those mods installed. How do I make it stop?


I think I found out how to fix it. You have to set the allow romance caste for the town to false. idk who agreed with my post but I guess someone else is having the same issue.

I've decided today that I'm female.

I have two Nraas Story Progression .package's in my mods file. One in the Package file and in the Packages file there is a NRaas_StoryProgression_V265 file and in side of that there is another Nraas_StoryProgression.package file. Are these suppose to be there is should I delete one of them? To me they look like the same.

Just to be safe, I would delete both and redownload the mod (for your patch level) from the site.

I have never used the Overrides folder and I am wondering what type of mods/CC I would put in it? I'm running most of NRaas, a lot of mods from MTS and Simsasylum and some from Simlogical, about 100 MB overall.

I install everything else (except counters, lots, and worlds) via CCMagic.

Any suggestions what I should put in there?

I did that. I downloaded the mod again, this time there were only on .package file, but the mod did't work in the game. But when I had two .package files it did.

The file with the version number is the zip file that you download. It won't do anything. You extract the package file with WinRAR and put the package file inside into the Packages folder. It does not have a version number.

Also, delete your cache files before you start the game.

You don't need both, the zip file won't do anything.

The overrides folder is mainly used for package files that "MUST LOAD FIRST" above every other mod file for the game. A best example of a file that should only be placed in the overrides folder is the "Store Fix" file used for decrapified Store content.

I don't really have a sense of what "must load first". Default skins and eyes? Sliders? On Nona's site, it mentions EA hair replacements, so I assume that also means changed EA clothes?

Any type of mods that should go there? Tuning vs. scripting (not that I understand the difference)? Core mods?

Go visit MATY and read all about the importance of the overrides folder on there.

Be warned though, there are a lot of hostile folk on there.

Ok, I'll brave MATY. Wish me luck!

Thanks for your help!

I thought files in the overrides folder are loaded last? It means that if there's a script and core mod that potentially require / change the same resources, the core mod has to be loaded first (packages folder) and then the script mod has to be loaded last (has name higher in alphabet or placed in overrides folder). That's what I understood in TS2 though. I'm almost certain it's the same as TS3?

If the mod description doesn't mention anything about Overrides folder, you don't need to mind it at all; just pretend the folder doesn't exist. Some mods do require to be placed there. For example, Sims MX has a Variable Career Metrics mod that's placed in the packages folder. But if you have AwesomeMod, which seems to tweak the career resources, Sims MX's mod has to be placed in overrides folder to work properly. KissingToast and Notouching have fixes for Store and Premium Contents, but in case you have the .packages files of the Store and Premium Contents in the packages folder, you have to put the fix in the overrides folder.

Hm. I don't have AwesomeMod but Twallans's Career mod. Would that also require the Variable Career Matrix mod to be put into the Overrides folder?

I really appreciate all the tips and help! Generally, I've ignored it but I'm overhauling my mods after I finally updated to 1.67 and started wondering about ti.

Buts that's the thing. Their are both .package file, the one I dowloaded from the site comes as .package file. There is no zip file.

That's not possible. This is the link:

http://nraas.wikispaces.com/file/vi...ession_V265.zip

You unzip it with WinRAR and put that package file (it's NRaas_StoryProgression.package) into the packages folder.

#4669 Old 23rd Jul 2014 at 7:28 AM
Yes it is becouse it still sais .package. I have downloaded it like a million time. Even for different patch levels. Inside the dowloaded NRaas_StoryProgression_V265 is Nraas_StoryProgression.package no zip file. And I know how to unzip files, This is'nt my first time adding a mod.

I'm not sure, since I don't use Twallan's Career mod. Although, there's no harm if you put your mods in Overrides folder, I suppose.

I just downloaded the base mod of SP to check this out. It is the latest version, 265, and I did this 5 minutes ago. My download file name is NRaas_StoryProgression_v265(1).zip (the (1) is because I've downloaded and installed this file once before). Inside the zip is NRaas_StoryProgression.package. You unzip the download, and place the .package file in your mods/packages folder. You cannot download mods from the NRaas site other than in zip form, so I cannot explain why you are not seeing the download properly. What OS are you running?
