I just encountered something weird. ? My Sim got a call from a friend. The friend said she and her partner had a big fight. A box popped up with (I think) 3 options. But the text was printed across the entire game screen and over the options, so I couldn't read what they were. (I just clicked one randomly and the friend said that wasn't a good idea. lol)

(editing this instead of making another post) Also got a notification - actually, about half a dozen of the same notification - that someone spread a rumor and my Sim got a phone call from a friend about it, but I never did find out what the rumor was. I'm very curious now. lol

Thanks for the report though! so the dialogue text just showed " Lyralei/School Events/Homework services" but the 2 buttons did show text? just to make things easier on my end :p


Yes the two choices did show text! You're welcome! Super excited about this mod!

I'm assuming that this was probably the older update, because of your comment on things having disappeared and such. The update will fix this!

Regarding the last issue, beyond the confession, the Sim isn't being told anymore what to do by script, sothats quite a strange bug maaaybe it has to do again with the older version? Since I've never had this happen before myself.


Hi! Thank you for the quick response. It was with the new version unfortunately, but Ill play with the mod again to see if anything similar happens again!

loving this mod so far! I love what you've done so far and It really spices up gameplay thank you so much for developing this!

I do have a few "bugs" though, like saying my sim has gotten a rumor but the rumor is empty so it will say like "Harry spread this rumor:" And my sim called himself to tell him that he has a rumor, which was nice of him actually. also, my sim is an adult and unemployed but he gets scenarios relating to school and work. idk if its possible to make this so it doesnt happen based on age/career status.

edit: I attached a photo of the rumor bug

This is absolutely great. I this and I really can't wait to see what you do next. though I am curious, would you ever create a supernatural aspect of it or not? I have been looking for something similar to this that includes supernatural, but I was considering making my own. Regardless, the work you have done is incredible.

is there always an event after the 10-72 hours, or is there just a chance of one? I just got done playing for about an in-game week and didn't see a single event fire so I'm trying to figure out whether something went wrong or if I was just unlucky/missed something

The seed event unfortunately froze and crashed my game when it occurred.

I love these little events in the game, and now there will be even more! Thanks! :lovestruc
I'm adding the Russian translation in the attachment (it may not be quite right, as it's hard to check all the strings in the game, so if anyone has any comments, write me in pm and I'll make corrections).

I have a problem where when my sim gets a prompt, that whole part works but for example my sims got a call about old furniture & I accepted & it said that the item would b in my inventory but that wasn't the case, this happened a few times. After that, my child got a pop up of sim that wanted to go on a date with her & nothing happened afterwards, like she didn't even know the sim. Really excited for the future of this mod though seems very interesting llololololo

@ghostmilky do you happen to own Supernatural? Because if that's crashing the game, then I should probably add this to the "packs that you need".

The reason is that I do use some code to get the fairy visual effects.

@joeyofrivia First off, I love your simbot lol

Regarding getting prompts about work/school... that's odd actually So the times this happened to me, it would throw errors, because it actually needs a work/school assigned to the sim to not throw null references/errors. Are you having those as well? Secondly, are they like "unemployed but registered at a city hall for a job" (So, self-employed)? Because that may be the problem then and I'll have to look into that.

@kixleart There are a few reasons it may not fire specifically, i've explained it a bit under the "Frequently asked questions" part of the description:

Quote:
"Nothing has triggered for me yet!"
Assuming the mod is working (which it most likely is), remember that it takes between 10 to 72 hours to trigger any event! Also, keep in mind that certain modules have requirements to work (like, your sims having a friend or a partner... or work :p)

Of course, the chances of any of these things triggering can be tweaked (see below.)


So, assuming as well you got the 19th June 2022 version (which is the most recent update), currently if you have only one or 3 modules, it can happen that the same module type is being fired, which in code i'm saying can only happen 30% of the time. I am currently working however on something that counts how many modules you have installed, and then dynamically figures out the chance it can let through the same module type, rather than it being a hardcoded 30%.

I know its not much, but i do hope this helps!

Hey @AirraJay

Can do, and technically you can use this mod as a basic framework to make it, but I am wondering what kind of random events you're thinking of? Maybe if they're not as super big I can include them

Hey @CrippliingDepression

Yeah, the furniture one is a really odd bug I've been having on and off as well! And because of that, I keep thinking it's finally fixed it, and then it semi work :p

Now, a thing to remember is that the furniture will actually go to your family inventory so that may be good to check

Regarding the dating thing, that's partially my doing for not actually adding any good user experience there. It can happen that the sim who goes to a lot after accepting a date, gets either stuck routing (Because TS3) or the sim has a need that cancels going to that lot. (Like being hungry/having to go to the toilet, etc).

I own all the packs so I don't believe that was the issue in my case.
I liked mod too much to delete it though

@Lyralei
I have all of the modules installed, so I shouldn't be having any issues that are caused by a low number of modules being installed
maybe a future update could add in-game alerts when the mod loads, or when it attempts to fire an event? that would make it a bit easier to tell what exactly is going on while the game is running

Hrm, not a bad idea! I can always make it a potential tunable option, so anyone who really doesn't want their notifications clogged up with any "firing event" texts, can still somehow turn it off. Which I'll hopefully be able to make Nraas-returner compatible. Still need to investigate on how to do that.

Because what does your active household currently exist out of? do any of your sim have friends/romantic relationships? Do they have jobs as well?

Since the disasters and death, as well as diseases module, have been tuned way back then they once were... a lot of people testing it before the Public beta had their sims go through a lot of tough moments I've been on an off tweaking the chances of things happening and so far I felt this was somewhat balanced enough, but it also feels like it's not firing enough now. Finding that sweet spot is most definitely not the easiest job.

If you can see the picture, this large text box appeared while I was playing, alongside the notification 'Oh no!

I hope what I am saying makes sense.

I have a lot of mods, so it might just be a conflict but I don't know what it could be.



Could you let me know how you managed to close this text box? I had the same thing happen to me and I had to quit from task a manager.

the household I was testing with had two adults (both of whom are employed), a teen, a child, and most recently a baby. I don't think they've formed much in the way of relationships outside of their household yet since they've only existed for about six in-game days

@kixleart , I fixed the firing stuff a bit, so I've actually seen it firing much more for my Sunset valley test save (Specifically playing the single Moms household), So make sure to update! Hopefully, that should fix things!
