I noticed that if two sims have handheld games in their inventory, they can play together!

Just take each day 24 minutes at a time... Unless you hit pause, then you could be there for hours!

I discovered that any Maxis lot, occupied or not, has Sim references which have to be cleaned first.

If you make a pond, then click undo, it wipes out all the terrain paint on that area.

This was a good thing- I was trying to get it back to normal to blend with the surrounding hood terrain, so I was able to just cover the lot with a pond.

Hold the right click-button and use the terrain paint does the same thing.

This also includes the CAS and young adult CAS lots, found in game data \TSData\Res\GlobalLots. Sucks.

We don't actually know that these references hurt anything, though.

I'm going to assume that everyone knows that the Sims series was based on Abraham Maslow's theory of self-actualization.

Today, while browsing I came across this article that discusses it and why some do not think it's actually or totally accurate. I found it educational:

The "Water's Flow" painting worth $300 also functions as a light. It has a cute little animation too when the light is switched on.

Yes, we are talking about this here. Very interesting reading. There also says that Sims 2 describes all levels of the hierarchy in contrast to other games.

My grandmother used to have an animated light similar to that. Those animated lamps were popular at one time. Most of the old ones seem to be round, but I have seen flat ones like the one in the game.

I thought we had confirmed that, back when Jawusa found how to clean them. Bad memory these days so not totally sure, but like 85% sure.

I learned some new things this weekend, and I'm so happy with this result.

I learned about all the OMSPs from SilentLucidity (oops, who hit the lamp post?). I figured out how to change the model used for favorite mods I use constantly while playing (community trashcan is actually InSim's selector, Sim Crossing sign is VC, and wrecked lampost is BOs Need Freak, all up front where I need them). And, through the helpful simmers in WCIF, I found some awesome decorative skates so my version of Rollers! can finally have a skate rental (through the window). A weekend well spent!

Well, I discovered something while NOT playing: distance definitely makes the heart grow fonder.

56 days and counting, folks! I do not know how much more I can endure! Please, help! Send me a new computer! I miss my game with all my being!

In this house, we respect and treasure all Pleasantview, Veronaville and Strangetown pre-mades. Is that clear?

Good.

Am I the last simmer to figure out how to use GridAdjuster?! Wow, I'm just loving it, no more sloped or doubled walls. I love tiny lots. Now my single sims can have a tiny apt and a tiny business all on the same tiny lot.

Three photos showing just a quick throw together play test of GA's basement for a tiny footprint on a tiny lot.

@Sunrader you realize with lot adjuster (rather than Grid Adjuster) you can build one tile closer to the edge?

No, is that a particular setting or do you mean build on a bigger lot, then shrink? That could be useful. I do find, though, that it's sometimes good to leave the two spaces so sims can walk around or to put the occasional item where they can interact with it.

Yes, now known as Humbler Humble, since he can't give away his computers anymore. He's cloned as safely as I can, I think, cloned with christianlov's cloner, then rinsed through Body Shop. He has so many computers because he's the only sim in my entire test hood, or he was, until the game spawned a newspaper carrier - When I get tired of building test lots, I might have them hook up to repopulate....

This idea of putting in the underground apt has grown over time. I've tired of watching sims do everyday stuff like go to the bathroom, so I have sometimes put those upstairs and never bothered to follow them up when they go. But, mostly the vast majority of my sims get stuck with only Veranka's All-in-One. I like the idea with this of putting a more luxurious place underground (Humble has a nice clawfoot down there) that is just for them. Once they are built and the fun stuff is upstairs, even I won't follow them down when they go down for a nice long bath or a good sleep. Give em a little privacy, you know?!
