When you square up to your neighborhood thinking: "Okay, whose community lot visit did it crash on last night?" and realize, no, wait, you quit on purpose last night, not because it crashed and it was too late to load the game again - maybe you're having a bit of a crashing problem and should do some computer/game maintenance.

Confirmed when the game crashes on the way to the first community lot visit within half an hour of opening the game...

(I know I need to clean the cat hair out and the last time I did this the guy I took it too showed me how to slide the panel straight off but it doesn't come off, not for me, not for my husband, so what am I supposed to do? I can't just take it in to be cleaned every six months! Besides, it's probably not just the cat hair.)

It's obvious that the author has never played the game for more than a few hours.
I mean, who doesn't play a family for years?

"Half a decade". Yeah, yeah. I've played the same "in-game" clan for half my life.

I've only stuck with a few of my sims that I had when the game first came out. They went through a lot of makeovers over the years. But they are still sentimental to me and treat them as the founders of my sims world.

Setting up defaults. Paying close attention to what I download. Using an archive folder set up like the default database. STILL ending up with three replacements for "afbodyshortdressshoes". Also realised that the problem isn't how creators name their files in very different ways - I ended up getting confused over MY OWN freaking defaults, named in my own file naming system! Why is organisation of my downloads folder such a hopeless task?

If you see a CC clothing outfit, open it up with WinRAR to find out what it contains and you see a file called C/DISK it"s a sure fire sign NOT to extract that CC to your game.

If you right-click on it, does anything pop up to give you a clue? On my computer you can do a security scan that way, and finding out when it was added through properties might tell you something.

An .exe file?
Don't touch that sucker.
.Exe files can overwrite on the computer-it's an actual computer program.

.Exe is shorthand for "execute" and it's only used to install programs into a computer.

Official definition: https://fileinfo.com/extension/exe

An EXE file is an executable program you can run in Microsoft Windows. Most EXE files contain either Windows applications or application installers. However, EXE files can also store malware distributed by cybercriminals, so you should not open an EXE file unless you trust the file's source. To run the program an EXE file contains, double-click the file.

I've seen that atical about the sims and I've been known to play a town for a while though it wasn't easy with TS2 on my old computer when I played vanilla and kept having issues that were game-breaking.I won't havw to ever worry about those again since I've got my game Modded out now.I can see my Pleasantview game lasting for about 400 years of sim history and enjoy watching it grow into a city over the time span of it's life.

Having gotten into Mahjong myself since the last time I played, I am impressed with the detail on the in-game tiles.

Although it seems everyone has the same hand, and I can't figure out why they've exposed the first tile in the line--it doesn't go with anything. Though, when I look closer, both of them have Mahjong already--maybe it's not as detailed as I thought. Well, at least the tiles look nice, even if the rules weren't quite followed.

However when they play chess they play legitimately. They move the pieces by the rules. But it's always the same particular game. Confirmed by my sims playing elite chess player friend who also happens to be very detail oriented.

I once read it's not just the same game that's played each time, but that it's some famous game from a championship, or something like that?
I also never thought about it, but doesn't that also mean one colour will always lose?

The game that they usually play is a classic one (but I can't find the reference to it) and chess is always either 1) a draw 2)win 3)loss for one of the players, no matter if it's in Sims 2 or real life.

One color will always win-either black or white.

Also this from the Sims Wiki:

"Unlike The Sims, chess pieces are now separate from the chess table itself, and players can now watch their game in greater detail. While Sims generally follow the normal rules of chess, it has been noted that they may continue playing even after the king has been captured, which would normally result in a "checkmate."

"In The Sims 2, when one or two Sims are playing chess, the chess game is played out dynamically, and the pieces move or attack accordingly, while in The Sims 3 when a Sim makes their move, the pieces are all different."
Reddit:
"and like they actually follow the rules and stuff?"
"Yup. And IIRC the moves they make change depending on their logic level and they cheat if they're an *******."

No, what I meant was: "if they are always playing the same game, doesn't that the same colour will lose each time" ;-)
Sorry for not being clearer, even with my years of living in an English speaking country, it still shows sometime that it's my second language.

Orphalesion, I don't think that's a language thing, it just happens to be slightly ambiguous. I want to know the same thing now - I always just assumed it was random who won and who lost, but if they follow a specific chess game I suppose it can't be?

It's all right, but it's not always the same outcome-professional players who play the 'classic' Grand Master games of chess have sometimes come out with different endings than has been done before-when they're playing it out-if they take a different tack mid-way through the game to a different conclusion.

It's why there are entire libraries for chess players who literally memorize the grand master games to play.

I'm not too sure that's true about Sims 2 chess games-I've never followed a game before.

BTW, I am familiar with chess in real life, which is why I can state these conclusions.

I've also noticed that sims yawn a lot while playing mahjong. Did they think the game can't be fun or what?

They yawn when playing don't wake the llama, too. I always took it as taunting other players implying they're taking too long to make their move.
