I may not play with my TS4 Sims for a while. I'm currently planning to buy the Add-ons like Cats and Dogs, Outdoor Retreat, the various Stuff Pack. Seriously, it's the game with the free Holiday pack, weerbesu's UI mod (currently up to date) and the custom content I found with help from forum members who knew of the Silver Moon Simblr and the fact it's located in my computer under a folder titled like "TS4 Mods".

I might buy the Parenthood pack and see which of the sextuplets have phases and what kind of phases they are. I have seen numerous pictures of those Care Bear-like costume and in all honesty, they remind me of Outdoor Retreat's Bear costume (which is available in Grizzly, Panda and Polar bear)

So I convinced the Lynx household to move out, and moved the local elder vampire in. it's funny how fast you can convince people by flashing them a big shiny smile.... when you're a vampire

Anyway, I had underestimated the exact effect of the "cat hangout" lot trait. Currently I have a quintet of cats in my living room, carolling me with the song of their people, and none of them is mine. (My own two cats are out carolling the fishmongers)

A couple of them have already raided the food that the butler keeps making, and it seems like I can't lecture cats that didn't move in with me. I avoid using the word "own", because as the ancient Egyptians had already found out, cats are demigods and can't be owned by mere mortals

Not that I care about the food, since the butler doesn't actually make anything a vampire can actually eat, but some of that stuff is not good for cats. I mean, spaghetti with tomato sauce? Cat metabolism isn't tuned for carbs, and tomatoes are downright toxic to cats.

Speaking of butlers, the new butler for this family showed up in a track suit and with a Roman helmet on.You're drunk, MCC Dresser. Go to sleep

Kristopher went on a date with Elsa. Things really went well. First kiss, real kiss.





What else is happening is this:

I was tired of crack lines in some of the hairstyles of my sims. (White lines mostly) It occurred in some EA hairstyles and some custom content hairstyles. I have a Radeon graphics card and a six core processor, this is a gaming PC, so while most info on the web is geared to fixing rendering issues for simmers who have NVidia, I was able to find some info that helped. See, I'm not very techy about graphics and graphics cards, but what I ended up doing was turning on Anti-aliasing and some other settings and it solved the cracks in hair issue about 95%. Also I actually had to enable the graphics setting for Sims 4, don't know why it wasn't enabled. O_o

Cracks in hair would appear mostly in males hairstyles. Sometimes in seams in clothing. What would happen is, the more I zoomed away from the sim, the more cracked and terrible it would look. Apparently this can happen with NVidia too and there is an app that can correct these issues, but if you're a Radeon user you're hooped, no such app seems to exist and good luck finding anyone or a post who knows how to help you. Anyway now that I've changed the settings somewhat, there is a huge improvement in the graphics overall (and I already thought it looked good!) and game performance (frame rate) has not been compromised one bit, in fact it seems to be running better than ever.

By the way; here are the white cracks:



The white cracks would disappear zoomed in but further out they became very severe, although some hairstyles were still terrible close up.

This is not my cat. Well, neither is the other one.

Not sure why would a cat want to eat CHILI, but I guess if you want to melt a hole through the litter box, that's one way to do it

After reading that @Pillowkitty6 increased the length of their day (using MCCC) and it made the day more manageable, I decided to give it a try and haven't gone back. Big thanks to them!
Big developments for Kristopher. Click spoiler for pictures/story.

Aye, I'm on a 33% longer day myself. (Time factor increased from 25 to 33.) Otherwise I don't have the time to hug all those cats

Mine is 50. It is so much more relaxed. Even woohoo seems to last forever. *chuckles*

Right now, my sims family is going down the line... I may have cried when my girl's dads died, but i guess that's just what happens, right? ;-;

Totally. I might have when Henry's dad died (Henry is my fave sim) but I was more upset for Henry than for Hugh... T^T

Been awhile since I last posted. Had to collect my thoughts. Decided to withdraw from Sims 4 again due to annoyance with multitasking and AI routing.

@spidergirl79 Happy setting it to 50 worked out for you! It really feels needed when you've got to wash up and care for pets on the daily.


A day in the park, music warms the heart and this my readers shall be thy final part!
