I've got the cheat in my startup for maxtotalsims but I'm not sure how to actually move more than 8 on to the lot. Do I need to use like simblender or something to add them to the family? And if I do that will they stay?



I use this mod https://modthesims.info/d/250640/la...-04oct2008.html

Then that's because you haven't seen Simler90's 192 updates to their Romantic Standards mod. Your point would switch up pretty quickly after reading the essay-long changelog. Good luck

Seriously, it's about as ableist as banning workplace/academic use of Comic Sans sight-unseen (as in, not even knowing what Comic Sans looks like!) and since we play a game that pretty much exclusively favours that font, perhaps we should act in its spirit when discussing corruption.


As someone with autism, the reason it is hard for us to detect sarcasm is because of difficulties interpreting tone of voice. In a text-based format, we're just as capable of detecting sarcasm as anyone else is, although notoriously allistic people are much worse at it without tone of voice cues as well. So no, I don't consider not marking text-based sarcasm to be ableist. It helps everyone the same amount. Some utterances, however, you don't need tone of voice cues to pick up the sarcasm.

There are some very gifted creators who really should be made to understand that we want to know what their mod does, not see repeated effusive thanks to everyone who taught them how to make it and pretty pictures that do not actually show how to make it work. Read enough of those, and you start wanting to just scan everything you read, even if you know better.


Yes, I can imagine that's a problem sometimes. I actually have not even considered installing a number of Simler mods just because I don't have the time to read an entire novel about the mod. But I really do think that if you can't read the description for whatever reason, the correct course of action should be to not install the mod. If you really really want it, you can probably find time to read the description. And at the very least, if you have questions about the mod, they should go to the creator, as other people are not generally going to know how it works, particularly if you never mentioned that you were using a mod in the first place. Numerous people in this thread assumed the pregnancy would not advance unless the maid was moved in, for example, when clearly that person's mod was causing the pregnancy to advance when she was unplayable. Stuff like that. You could answer the question based on how pregnancy works for playables, but who knows, maybe this mod does it differently and we would be giving out wrong information.

I've been noticing a certain fear popping up in Strangetown. "Sim is chased by X" You may have noticed that X usually refers to a pet, but I'm seeing this fear in reference to actual sims. Is this caused by hood corruption? If so, then it was corrupted since the beginning, and I'm just gonna roll with it.


I kind of miss my carefree younger days, when I'd just make my families, and delete them all willy nilly when I got bored with them. Seems like everything and its brother causes corruption in this game.

Can anyone give me a hint on how to do a thing?
I want to put a CC bookcase on the wall above other furniture (like a bed, or a pot plant), and have sims able to use it. I tried adding BHAVs for person and object intersection, but it made no difference. Sims are still blocked from the books. Is there a way to enable using the bookcase from a slight distance?

Well I'm grateful that this information exists now, as a child I hated starting a neighborhood and that everything ended up unplayable without knowing why, I always thought it was my fault.

When I came back to the sims a few years ago, I didn't know anything about 4gb patch, graphic rules, mods and everything else, and on top of that, I was playing with broken templates, it took me like a year or two to find out all of that first. I still miss my sims in my attempts to play in a totally broken Strangetown.

I don't mind reading the essays when it comes to mods. Or anything else.
If all else fails - read the instructions (I read those too It does not always help, though).

Is that the only issue? Because there is a theory that this want is just badly written and it doesn't mean that the game is broken and thinks to your sim is a dog.
