(just downloaded the updated version, hopefully it was just that)


In future updates, I'll make sure this is a file that gets created in your mods folder, rather than a huge dialogue. But to close it in the future, just press enter

I have problems with the Rodent Invasion. When the housekeeper arrives, no matter what I click on yes or no, the housekeeping service resets everyday, so I need to call them everyday, no matter if I am in another world or playing with another household or house. So I need to start my game all over. Would you like to repair this please?

Default How do I get events to fire more frequently? Some events are not happening at all.
My household consists of a husband and his husband and their daughter. The 2 husbands work different jobs yet a work event has never happened. They are friends with their coworkers too. Their daughter has attended elementary school for her whole childhood (14 days) and now she has attended high school for more than 2 sim weeks, but a school event has NEVER happened. Nobody offered to help her with her homework and nobody asked her out on a date. Admittedly, she has no friends in high school but she has a romantic interest since a week ago. To get events to fire more frequently, I halved all the values in the randomizer settings through nrass retuner; but I'm asking this question anyway to get a more definite answer.

I have downloaded this mod since July and have updated it (I updated the Core and Base mod module, since the description says I don't have to update the other modules), yet the only events I get are the earthquake, house on fire, house with rats and trash, rare gems and seeds spawning, leakage, being unable to use electrical devices and a fairy blessing the garden. The pictures in the description indicate that there are more events, such as your Sim being laid off, being broken up with NPCs, having a random adoption of a child and having a random adoption of a pet, just to name a few. There are also events for teen Sims such as getting detention for no reason, being asked out on a date, having no homework at school or being offered to have their homework completed for them for a price. Again, NONE of those has happened at all. No break up, no random adoption, no lay off and no deaths too! Sorry to say this, but I am quite disappointed with this mod as it barely affects the gameplay. I expected my game to have twists and turns, yet that never happened. Please give me a solution.

Hey @Golden_Fountain_Pen !

Sorry for getting to you so late. I'm really sorry that you're experiencing some weirdness with the mod.

Generally speaking, each event have their own "necessities" before they can fire. So for example, with the school events, your sim needs to be at school. However, the way that the events are currently triggered, is that daily, it will fire at the same time. Now, let's say (and you can verify this when turning on debug mode, as it will mention that it's trying to fire certain events) for you, the events start a 3am, then the school events get rejected by the event manager, since your sim's children are most likely asleep :p

A way to fix the 3am issue I'm talking about, is simply to save the game at, say, 9am (so the kids are then at school), exit the game and reopen it. What's happening is that the timed trigger will basically reset by an hour. So if you save the game at, say, 10 am, exit the game and reopen the game (and save of course), then the alarm will now try triggering at 11am. This is done deliberately so that it tries firing at different times.

Now, I'm assuming you got all the modules right? (or at least, a handful of them). It's possible that the event system keeps picking one of your adult sims and the wrong modules at that time. (because computers and randomizing things are just not the best systems. Just look at music shuffling :p).

But the only way to know that is by turning on debug mode. (which also means I can give a more proper idea of what may be going wrong, since the mod kind of has its own mind.)

Hopefully this helps a little, I think you may just have got a bit unlucky regarding what the event system decides to go for.

Hey @Bibe10 !

Hrm I'm wondering, do you happen to have some immigration settings (in nraas or maybe another mod that takes care of this) set that may prevent the housekeeper from even getting to your house? I'll check it out, though it's probably good to also see if the game is allowed (according to nraas or whatever you use) to create service sims, including housekeepers.

I got the same error. I'm hoping to find a solution. I love having the mod in my game too!
