Does anyone know where to find the ceiling beam that came with AL in the Object Workshop?

Admit it, Milotic is beautiful.

Do you have advanced mode enabled? Sometimes things only turn up when you're in that setting.

It looks like a broken mesh to me.

For reference off of the top of my head (I looked these up a few days ago): cereal spoils in 2 hours, jello 24 hours, a few things like chips and instant meals in 12 hours, and most other foods spoil in 6 hours.

What's the cheat that tells you which EP objects came with in the catalog?

Thanks, but I actually managed to find a no spoil hack in exnem's stuff at the Booty.

The Object Workshop uses the Names from Catalogue Description (CTSS) to search for the objects.

It's under 'Unknown' right down at the bottom under T for Transversal.

That sounds interesting. I'm not sure I'd really fit in over there though.

Yeah, GOS hosts the big trade-off now, but that section is pretty dead. And with the TS2 fanbase shrinking, the various sites aren't as distinct anymore. GOS hasn't been gothy in years if that's what you're concerned about.

Picture - the list is so long I can't show you all of it but the location of the side scroll bar might help.

If it's really not there are you sure:
1. You actually have AL installed? (I know you probably installed it but just recently we've been seeing odd instances of the game and/or your computer and/or your antivirus deinstalling EPs and SPs (it's a thing, really)).
2. You have the AL location correctly set up in preferences

Because, basically, if it's not there SimPE is loading the filetable and isn't finding it.

Well, then I refer you to my last comment. Can you see anything else from AL in the list?

No, I can't, and I think AL is not the only EP whose objects I can't see. I can see Base Game, Celebrations, Happy Holidays, K&B and IKEA objects. I think I can't see items from any other EP/SP.

Admit it, Milotic is beautiful.

How do I change the black background in Bodyshop? I read on GoS about this:

Quote:
F5
Changes the background to a solid black color. If there is a bitmap graphic named "userBkg.bmp" in the "\EA Games\The Sims 2\" folder in My Documents, the image will be displayed as a backdrop.


Of course I have the Ultimate Collection so I don't know where to find it.

Any bmp file called userBKG.bmp will work - mine is 1024x768. I think the size might matter. You put it in your The Sims folder - mine is in:

C:\Users\maxon\Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2 - you'd use the UC equivalent of that. I have the disc version of the game.

Picture - I really must change that. It's not the best background. It was an experiment.

Okay, I'll try that and report back @maxon

EDIT: it worked @maxon, this is my new background:



I had to resize it down to 1600x900 so that it'll fit. I'll experiment some more, though

Megahood is a neighbourhood containing several Maxis neighborhoods as subhoods (shopping districts or downtowns). Uberhood just means it contains all the Maxis hoods.

Who says there's a difference? I think some people call it a megahood if only some of the premade neighborhoods are used, and restrict the term uberhood to ones that have all the subhoods attached. But some people use them interchangeably.

Ugly is in the heart of the beholder.
