That a sim can randomly gain skill points during a date. Twelfth love got a cleaning point, right after he and his date had been wohooing in a car. I'm not sure I want to know.

I've had that happen many a time after someone's dated a Neat sim. It only seems to be Cleaning skill that gets passed on this way, at least in my experience. Given the amount of WooHoo some of my sims have had on dates, I'd have thought a bonus point of Body skill wouldn't have gone amiss.

I've had Sims pick up cleaning tips....from a Sim with 0 points in Neat. I've never seen anything other than 'cleaning tips' (perhaps someone could break open the text strings and check), so it kind of feels like a feature that Maxis just sort of sloppily implemented. Pun not intended.

I'm pretty sure I've gained mechanical points this way.

I had to look up 'Far away greet' to see where it's from and find more info on it. Not much said, but it's from Freetime, BFF has a few perks, along with the greet, it allows sims to freely walk into BFF friends home and hang out on their property. After locking the door when sims just strolled in, a few BFFs would hang around outside. Since the lot is about 2x1, there's no space really. One would check out the tiny garden at one end and laugh at it, they would sit on the bench at the front door and chat or read the paper. One of them was observed around the back corner, salvaging in the trash bin. It's so much better than having the paper stolen or the trash kicked over, all though those actions can be funny if not a constant thing. (:

I've had Sims learn cooking and body skills from outings/dates, so I'm guessing all skills can be learned that way.

Most likely. I know that if you plant a new family down in Strangetown then fake Bella will arrive with the welcome wagon sometimes. As for "working" in Pleasantview; I'm not sure, they only said Strangetown.

In one of the EP's (Bon Voyage, I do believe) there is a set of things under 'tropical' like the massive Jumbok Statue that you can place on community lots. Today I made a "Temple of Fire" with that and certain placing of those firing lights, the thing really looks ultra voodooey...I found out you can give an offering and get something back.

I tell you, I just love that cheat "moveobjects on"! It really does wonders for an otherwise boring old statue (that has a waterfall, no less.)

Try putting soap in the fountain if you really want a temple of fire. XD

This is probably something that was already known, but it was new for me. Passing on business perks and transferring business lots can only be done between Sims within the same household even if they are in the same family.

@icemandeaf: Just in case this might be what you wanted to hear... I ran into that recently as well. I find it odd:
  • as long as sims still live at their parental home, they can learn these skills from their parents and/or siblings
  • but as soon as they leave the house, they keep whatever they've already learned, but can no longer pass stuff on

I think this makes little sense, so I'm in the process of writing/testing a mod that allows sims to pass on these benefits to their direct parents or children or their siblings, even when the recipient lives in a different household. This does not apply to grandparents, grandchildren and/or step-family, by the way. I thought there should be a line drawn *somewhere* :D

Unsavory Charlatan likes to play pool. I've never seen him do anything other than skulk around and occasionally pick pockets before. I was playing the Printer Sisters at Land Grant U, and while they were performing at the lounge, he played a complete game of pool with one of the dormies and then spent the rest of the night trying to do trick shots. He was so entertained that he didn't find time to steal from anyone.

Not if there's a black jack table nearby, he doesn't. I have a comm lot with black jack, mahyong, don't-wake-the-llama, and pool tables (two of each), and whichever hood I place that lot, the UC always books for the Black Jack tables in the back, where he's cleaning out everysim who's stupid enough to join him.

@stitching Haha, he likes to sing karaoke too. One of my sims joined him and ended up having the Charlatan on his known sims list. I'm pretty sure that's a VBT!

Today I did play a female sim living at a dorm. The female professor did come to visit (she does that from time to time) and I send my sim out to greet her. She greeted the professor by kissing her on the chins. Have never seen anything like it before.

How many chins did the professor have?

I think she means cheeks and it was probably the kiss kiss darling greeting.

@smorbie I assume it's cheeks instead of chins.

- I officially lack male outfits. Linus Santerre and his teen nephew,Philbert Laferrière, are sporting the same clothes.
- Marie-France Santerre getting pregnant makes me ridiculously happy. She's 48 and in my game female sims barely get pregnant after 44-45.

I got a new computer so I am starting over with my sims downloads and installs. It is really a pain.

Deep in the graveyard beside her I lay

I discovered that I should hug every creator on ModTheSims that has created/modded anything! It's a very time consuming process, but I never realized the level of dedication until my first mod. For all those creators, I applaud you. *crawls back into custom career mod*
