I discovered that Vampire Servos are kinda tricky. Gypsy was bitten on a community lot; when I finally got to her household, though, she looked normal -- not a vampire. She cowered at 7 AM, but she didn't begin fry. She then went about her day as usual. I sent other household members to a community lot, brought them home, and Gypsy was still normal. Ehhhh, I thought, not much to this Vampire Servo thing, let's give her some Vamprocillin-D. She drank it, and changed back to, well, this. Pretty Sim face, but creepy as anything.

Exit without saving; back in; still no vampire face. It was only when I had her change into formal wear that her face changed to vampire. Then she started to sizzle outdoors!

Okay, so I then bought a coffin for Gypsy for the daytime. But she wouldn't stay in it, jumping out every time "Do Chores" appeared, about once an hour. The solution: park her someplace out of the way indoors and power her down during daylight. No sizzle, no mood decay.

On the plus side of all this: Gypsy is now Gothic Robotics' most tireless robot builder. And the fangs are rather cute.

What do vampires drink when they bite servos?
Battery juice?

I don't have many servos in my game (hardly any, just one) but as soon I make the simbot change into formal wear the face shows partly servo/partly human as in the post from tancred. Very annoying. (But that's not the main reason that I don't play this servo).

Just saw my sim lecture a visiting townie for breaking the sink. Never seen that before; I didn't know that they could lecture townies. XD I then added insult to injury by asking her to leave; well the person she'd come to see was already in bed and she was just hanging out breaking sinks. XD

I didn't know until this day that pregnant sims go up and down stairs very carefully.
They go up and down stairs just as a sneak-out motion just as the picture below.
I guess it is because their body is heavy and also they can't see stairs because the belly is hiding the front view so they put extra caution.
Another great detail for ts2 !!

It's possible for someone to bring the Charlatan home from work. What made it worse was that the Sim in question was in the "Unemployed" custom "career". Though perhaps this explains why the Charlatan steals stuff 24 hours a day...

I feel so clever... probably everyone else already thought of this, but it just occurred to me and I'm so pleased. So... I don't like the bookshelves to all look alike, especially lined up like this in a library, so I have tons of empty bookshelves and bookstacks, but filling them is a tedious process. It suddenly occurred to me for a shot like this to just put an empty one on top of the regular one and fill a few odd eye catching parts of the bookshelves. I just don't want it to jump out at you that they are the same and I think this works well. I'm so happy. This pic is nice, too, because, though the walls are down, the wall on the left is the back wall of the tiny bathroom in this tiny library. The wall stays up with Numenor's no-cutaway walls. I think it looks so much more real when the inner walls stay up when we're "inside" the building. Also, this is Amanda and Samantha Ottomas's long lost father (he's actually an aged up Tommy clone - see the resemblance) who is the only townie in Widespot and he autonomously showed at the library, which is what I was going for - him just wandering in and out of the hood on his own. Oh, and they are all autonomously reading, too.

A new scholarship! Zenisha Harvey was just awarded the Mendel Award for Oxygen Donation and Repletion. Googling shows people have speculated sims get this scholarship if a parent is at the top of the Education career. I'm not sure because Zenisha's mother is dead (and I honestly don't remember what her career was) and her dad just made top of the Journalism career. Maybe journalists' kids also get awards for breathing? Lol.

With most packs installed, discovery was made - estimating that they're over more than 499 floor titles in the game. I did the counting.

P.S. Sorry for my bad english.

I've never seen a sims cheer up another sim right after something embarrassing happened, but the mayor of Milber cheered his pregnant wife up after she didn't make it to the bathroom in time and cleaned the mess up while she got in the shower. How adorable ;w;

Wow! I am late to the party but, even though this upload is from way back, I had never seen it, and it's awesome!

First the one I knew about... I love small lots and I've used Andi8104 and MaryLou's for years:

Andi8104 and MaryLou Lots

Honestly, until recently, I didn't notice that they have the sun coming from the rear in lot view, but back in 2006-2007, Aelflaed did, and worked out how to turn these lots so that they'd be facing the sun in lot view:

Aeflaed Sunnyside Lots

In case others are late to the party, too, I took some screen shots so you can see what they do.

EDIT - HugeLunatic posted a link to files (below) that modify the game lighting that you can add to your installation files and call with a cheat if you prefer that to building on Sunnyside lots, or if you have a lot that's already built that you want to change. Also very cool.

You can change the direction of the sun in a lot by using cheat, you don't need to install those lots. The last post by Hook, http://www.moreawesomethanyou.com/s...hp?topic=8076.5, contains the edits to make to your lighting files. If you use DreadPirate's updating radiance lighting mod, it now contains that.

I've never noticed how few windows Olive's house has until I was renovating it for Nervous and Pascal. That house must've felt like a prison for Ophelia. Her bedroom didn't have any windows.

I think the big doors in the bedroom walls on that lot are meant to look like windows with shutters on them, but the base game didn't come with anything like that so Maxis had to put the big doors there instead. I always replace them with the windows and shutters from Moune999's Torrox build set. I leave the shutters open for Ophelia's room and put closed ones on Olive's room.

It's not a good idea to use the teleporter cat to add a Plantsim to the household (unless it was just a one-off glitch).

For some reason, I couldn't find a newspaper on the Greenmans' lot, so I used the cat to bring Cactus to the Roths' place so he could perform the funerary rites for Lady Betty and Miss Catherine. It moved him in no problem, but then he getting 'hungry' thoughts even though he couldn't eat (when directed to 'grab a plate,' it just fell out of his queue) and kept going to bed! In the end I just exited without saving, bought the Greenmans a computer and let Cactus move out that way.

I'm pretty sure I've moved plantsims around using it, so I'm guessing it was a glitch.

Only when moving the ideal plantsim should there be a problem (though i don't know why you would as I'm sure there are more attactive plantsim bachelors for your sims than him) personally I've never had a problem with the teleporter cat or at least not that i remember anyway.

If have your Sim be "be stylist" by clicking on makeover station, all of their interactions get killed.

P.S. Sorry for my bad english.

Thanks to this post, I found out it's possible to completely deactivate a specific song in-game! That's brilliant :O

Well, depending on that Sim's personality, he'd fit right in with the "Stepping Out & Cleaning Up" challenge.
