As well, it keeps the game in standard camera mode. This is handy for those few instances where tab/freecamera glitches out.

Dogs who have run away can die and come back as ghosts. Buffy ran off a while ago and eventually disappeared from the panel. I figured that meant she was gone for good, but didn't realize she was gone from the world. A few nights later I saw her floating around the lot.

I've got one or two things on MTS, but most of my stuff is on my main site here:

Twojeff's visitor controller might accidentally zap away SimWardrobe's Sani-Bot 5000. Oops.

I didn't know that. I always use tab.

I had that with a cat once. Her grave was dumped at the very back of the lot.

I learned the hard way you can't edit antique camera photos in SimPE while they're in a Sim's catalogue. I had to do it all over.

If a Sim takes a kite outside an apartment to fly it, they'll put it down outside and it can't be moved without building cheats.

That apparently the function GetRandomTownieParents is not only responsible for generating babies to adopt, but also for getting introduced to new friends via networking. I discovered a while ago it's apparently impossible to generate a new baby for adoption without townies. Toddlers and children would generate fine, so I suspected it was due to babies being generated via a slightly different process (since you can make toddlers and children in CAS but not babies). I just got an error as one sim was networking with another and checking the logs shows it was attempting to run a Sub - New Friend. I guess it couldn't pull from the social groups and since there were no townies, it didn't have any sims to properly execute. Makes me wonder what other events use the same function!

Although I do know what you actually meant, but simmers are players of the sims. Kind of a funny context.

P.S. Sorry for my bad english.

Apparently Sims have to have a high relationship to accept talk about hobby. I've never seen a Sim reject talk about hobby until just now. Bruno Ruggbryne was abducted by aliens and his daughter from that abduction is now a child. Hydra had a want to talk about hobby and since Bruno was at work I had her try to talk about hobby to Mamie. Mamie immediately rejected her and it hurt the relationship. I didn't realize their relationship was around 20/20, but apparently it needs to be higher than that to accept.

about hobby talking; Freetime's Prima Guide seems to tell that acceptance depends on both enthusiasm and Daily.

I discovered that the garden club can go INTO the house and complain about the trash even though it's called GARDEN club and not HOUSE club...
Always lock your doors!

I also discovered that a sim can resurrect their family members even if they've never met them. It depends on how closely related they are. This sim who is in generation 11 was able to resurrect his half-brother who is in generation 3. They became instant best friends.

So are adoptee babies generated with random DNA and personality points instead of default zodiac sign points?

I was playing whit Move_objects today and discovered that it's possible to mix two flower beds at the same place. I'm sure most of you have known this from "day one" but I'm not that smart

Whoops. I accidentally found out that Sims can be hit by lightning while flying a kite. Vadim Simovitch was flying a kite and a thunderstorm started. Lightning hit him before I realized he was in danger and he is now fried. Thankfully he didn't die.
