frogz2007 - They can do it with toddlers, too. It's adorable. I just wish EAxis had allowed a few more interactions to be done while holding a little one.

Today I discovered that if you put two doors side by side, the game will see them as a double door. If you want to give only two people access to a room, you have to leave a gap between the doors so they can each have their own, otherwise only the last person to lock a door will be able to get in.

Well, I have confirmed that playables who have been Decimated via batbox are among the walking dead. Lazlo Curious brought Cassandra Goth home from work and she was still on lot when I had to save. Lazlo wanted to meet aliens and I had forgotten to remove the no alien abductions mod I had tested out before. When I restarted the game and loaded the Curious household, I was greeted with the message that Cassandra had died on another lot. Kind of sad, really, as she and Lazlo had two bolts and might've made interesting partners. Ah well. I'm glad now that I have been denying any school buddies whose lots I haven't loaded. I'd hate for the surviving kids to make friends with someone who ends up being dead.

Kissing a toddler apparently satisfies the "kiss"-want. Eh...

Yup. I remember that there used to be a glitch (or do I have a fix?) wherein toddlers could "suck faces" with older sims - now that was just... Nope.

Edit: Ah, here it is: http://www.cyjon.net/node/294

Hahaha, this reminds me of Sims 4 when a son was furious at the father for kissing his mother because he was in love with the mother. I ended up deleting the son and recreating him to get rid of that ridiculous glitch.

My life is a series of incomprehensible sketches, illegible notes, and running away from angry reptiles. I don't enjoy that last one.

Stories and stories about mermaids, kings and sunken treasure, magic worlds where the impossible becomes the everyday!

Today I sent a fully-playable Christy Stratton to a community lot I'd built, basically just a large indoor space with some hot tubs, poker table, chess set, and a BBQ with some tables. And a few couches. It's designed as a place for sims to hook up. I noticed someone there that Christy barely knew but double-bolted with, so I put Christy on a couch and got the other sim to join her. They sat there and chatted, getting on quite well, but Christy was getting a bit hungry.

Then, quite unbidden by me, another sim used the BBQ to serve up some hot dogs. I sent Christy over to get a plate. I expected her to sit at one of the tables, but no, she picked up her plate, walked past at least three tables and went back to the couch, to continue her conversation while she ate.

I thought that was rather nice.

It's details like those that make Sims 2 special.

(Not so much when they prepare dishes in the bathrooms to be closer to their lovers and go down several stairs to ride up an elevator to the 5th floor to leave plates though...)

Any kind of kiss satisfies the generic "Kiss" want. So I read that as a desire for physical intimacy with loved ones of all stripes, not just for romantic partners. So a Romance sim single mother who's getting antsy can kiss her toddler and remember what's truly important to her.

Sweetest kiss story I know (I trust Aegagropilon will forgive me for sharing this, since she can't be around much right now): Aegagropilon was playtesting Widespot for me and got Mary and Valentine engaged. Rhett made best friends with her and rolled a want to kiss her. After the wedding he went up to her and family kissed her, filling the want without opening a huge can of worms.

Ugly is in the heart of the beholder.

I learned the hard way that you can indeed get cockroaches inside the house. I only ever got it outside so I thought inside was no risk. Leaving a lot of trash on the floor for long periods of time in between taking trash to the compost is not an alternative anymore... o.o

Imagine my horror when the kid suddenly started watering the plants with his tears then finding the sad moodlet "Drifting Love - Caught the love of his life flirting with another. Are they joking around or losing interest?" on the son. The mother was hiding in her bed with the embarrassed moodlet "Caught with Another - Maybe it's not such a good idea to have multiple relationships at once, especially if one's supposed to be a secret."

The worst part was probably the father's moodlet: Great Relief! - Sharing the emotional burden with their spouse is a great relief for any Sim. Just... what? You wanted this to happen?

I accidentally teleported *NPCSkunkSkin onto a lot. It looked like this.

I don't even need to teleport him in. He's always lurking around!

(Too amused to actually ban him though.)

Edit: @ihatemandatoryregister Your skunk somehow reminds me of a corndog...

I was also playing around in an AGS that had only four mods: nounlinkondelete, creaturefixes, Macrotastics, and an old version of Sun&Moon's Wild Herbs and Spices. I just wanted to see an interesting glitch in action.

I plopped down some deadly nightshade on a lot and moved in a family. They got out of the taxi, went over to "what's this?" at the nightshade, and dropped dead.

Actually discovered this the other day, but...adding LGU to my hood added a 4 new teens! Obviously, one is the paper carrier, and two are cashiers...but who's that other girl? They really stand out, because Four Corners-Bitville only had 5 teens to begin with (1 paper carrier, 2 cashiers, and 2 playables).

It is kind of nice to see the poor, overworked cashiers get a day off here and there. I even saw one walking by on a lot in his outerwear!

I may have felt obliged to put three registers in one of the off-campus lots, which would give you a total of three cashiers. If she's not wearing an apron, I don't know where she came from.

Ah, that would make sense. I did go through most of the LGU lots, but I don't think I actually counted registers.

Another thing I learned last night but forgot to post until just now: my game really hangs when the pond is freezing over and a witch is flying in at the same time. I was just like..."What is happening?!!" And then I was like, "Oh. Oh, okay then."
