Pets can also take elevators on their own, which is awesome if they live in a highrise dwelling. Was never sure if it was explained how they could reach the buttons, so there must either be floor-level versions for them to push or the elevators are voice (woof and meow) activated.

As for subways, given the way I see humans behave on them whenever I leave my immediate neighborhood IRL, I would have to say that animals would be a welcome addition. They couldn't possibly behave any worse.

I got a pretty big chuckle yesterday while I was playing. Clicked on the mailbox and one of the donate options was "Donate to Insurance Companies".

Zilch... because my poor Sim is struggling to keep his house as it is! Who says art doesn't imitate life? Should I be expecting any forceful knocks at the door anytime soon?

Cue the "Stressed" moodlet any moment now.

I think MAYBE the devs were trying to hint that celebrity gossip is unfair and harsh ... but maybe not, I don't know.

I made an interesting discovery about CCMagic today, although (on past form) it may be that I am the last person to have spotted it.

I use CCMagic to install most of my cc, and I have quite a lot of it in there. One problem with it is that it doesn't always show a thumbnail of every item installed, which can make it difficult to find what you're looking for.

Among the items that didn't display thumbnails were some converted TSM chairs I download. They were fixed versions of some others I had which didn't work. They looked very nice, but sims couldn't sit in them properly: they would slide backwards so that their bums were hanging in mid air and their feet were clipping through the seat. The new ones were fixed for PETS, so I thought I'd give them a try, and hallelujah, they worked! But the patterns were different, so before uninstalling the faulty ones I saved the patterns from them and re- CASt the new ones so they looked the same. Then, back into CCMagic to delete the old ones, and surprise, surprise! there were my four new chairs, each displaying a nice thumbnail with the pattern I had just given them.

Intrigued, I tried the same thing with a number of other items that lacked thumbnails, and it worked each time. It works with CAS items too.

I may have to see if that works because yeah not having the thumbnails kind of stinks.

I had forgotten that if you drop a food synthetizer at a base camp from Adventures, by default Register will assign a waiter. So now between that, the professional bar, and some extensive remodeling, the base in France has turned into something more like the TS2 hotels. Which frankly I liked a lot.

Just felt like sharing the idea, in case someone else is missing the TS2 hotels too.

I discovered that I need to be a werewolf and in werewolf form to growl at pets.

Funny. I never had that problem IRL. Hell, my terrifying howl once got my brother's puppy to look like every paw was trying to run away in a different direction. And then there was this trip on the mountain where, well, let's just say I just wanted to test the echo... and then a nearby shepherd's dogs decided to join in the howling. And *ahem* mom almost jumped off the mountain.

Hmm... then again, I AM pretty hairy... and I have these recurring vivid ultra-realistic dreams of running on all fours under a full moon... Nah, probably doesn't mean anything. Everyone has weird dreams, right?

Today I discovered that the Snake charming basket (WA) can give more than two options when I click on it...

Wait, it that "charm snake into clothing" as in putting a little hat and jacket on the snake or "charm snake into clothing" as in it crawls into your shirt? I know there are people that let their well trained snakes hang out on them (on their necks and the like) but the snakes in the baskets are cobras. That seems a wee bit dangerous.

Today I learned:
I took out the desk facing the the door in the Moonlight Falls library (which is supposed to look like a librarian's desk) and replaced it with four of the modular seating from Late Night because there is a lack of places to sit and the desk isn't really needed. I looked over and there were five sims sitting on the four seating sections. Apparently it isn't one sim for each section if you get enough of the sections together. I hadn't seen that before and will have to keep it in mind for large families.

No, worst case scenario: to crawl into someone else's clothing (any other sim currently on lot).

I only figured this out from a reddit thread recently, but was anyone else aware that the Seasonal Lot Marker can be used on residential lots for decorations and such? So you can have like Christmas decorations appear and disappear at the start and end of winter respectively. I can't believe I never thought to use it like that.

I've had Monte Vista installed for some time now but I've never gotten round to playing it. Today I discovered, much to my irritation, that if I want to play it 'out of the box', so to speak, I must first delete a lot of stuff my game has plonked down willy-nilly all over town on lots that should be empty. Some of them are Showtime venues, including Big Micks Karaoke and my all time least favourite, the Port-a-Party Mini Warehouse (that hideous box!). Also a fire station stuck right in the middle of a nice big 50x50 that I'll probably want to build a castle on, one that will hopefully be in character with the local architecture, which most of these other little additions are not.

I've deleted the ones I don't want and saved the game, and henceforth I will use that save to start playing in Monte Vista. But I don't understand why I had to do that. I thought the game gave you the option of placing additional lots if you wanted them. So what's different about Monte Vista?

It's only pre-existing saves that give you the option. Any newly generated worlds will automatically dump those lots anywhere it can. You can get mods to stop this though.

I found a mod called NoVenuePlacement. I'm not sure who made it, but I found a Mediafire link to it on Reddit. It seems to work for all EP worlds and all the Store Worlds. I wish I'd known about it before, it would have saved me a lot of trouble. But auto lot placement was never such an issue with other worlds as it is with MV, since it is such a beautiful world and I hated having anything that spoiled the look of the place.

Anyway, thanks.

I haven't played today but while wondering about ATS's functional perfume bottles: how are they functional? I checked with the Artisan glassblowing station's features and yes! You can create perfume! I had no idea! I might even have it, just never installed.

If you call back home while travelling, your sim will talk about their travels over the phone. I went to egypt and my sim was talking about snake charming and pyramids.

I wouldn't lose too much sleep over it myself, but the pigeons in Bridgeport likely aren't aware of your existence either.

I discovered recently that with testingcheats on, you can shift click on a lot and have "season" options. I'm not sure if this is just testingcheat or of some mod I have. But this is so cool... you can instantly change all the weather conditions, rain, hail, and you can even have winter season with snow but change the temperature to 200!

Sanity is overrated.

Nitromon is a type of Pokemon encountered in the Pokemon Nitrome Version series.

There. Mystery solved.
