Scheduling a meetup for the invitee or a group: choose the time and the day of a week (vacation interface?) would be a nice feature. So I won't need to remember that I need to make the call at the right weekday and hour after waiting and reaching a couple of rotations for the sims to get together.

P.S. Sorry for my bad english.

Has anyone ever used the Event feature of the Lot Sync Timer? Maybe it could be used to help set up reminders like that? If not, I'd also like some kind of in game reminder system, as there are often things I forget I wanted to do. If you could type in a name and tell it when to pop up and remind you, that'd be cool.

I am wondering if this is possible and thinking maybe even making a request to midgethetree on Tumblr. Of course it may not be possible to use the game mechanic in this way. I've been thinking of how we sell items in game, it normally means opening a business, placing down a cash register, the whole shebang. I don't always want a business set up just to sell a few items especially for my pickpocket who would rather just sell something quietly on a street corner. How about the action on the sim pie menu that allows sims to sell pets, how about if they could offer items from inventory through that interaction. It could be available wherever they are, so at home or on a comm lot, the other sim can accept or reject the offer to buy the item just as they do the pet.

I'd like to see a hack that increases the chances of a Romance sim rejecting proposals I've got two Romance sims who accepted proposals, and while I came up with story-based reasons why they said yes, I don't want to do that for all my Romance sims.

I've used the 'event' function of the LST, and all it does is list the day the event happens. Haven't looked inside it to see if one can change it to a 'text' option on it, but I rather doubt you can. Pes was very precise on that one. You can edit other strings on it, but the core functionality is beyond hacking I think.

I'd like to see more interaction animations with Pets. Also, adding Pet Care as a skill and hobby.

I would like someone to make empty stealth neighborhood templates with Pleasantview Townies and NPCs. Something like meetmetotheriver did here:http://meetmetotheriver.tumblr.com/...d-empty-stealth. I would try it, but I don't have the time nor the knowledge about cleaning templates.

I'm not sure if you mean this or not. Jawusa emptied the stealth hoods. http://www.modthesims.info/d/520751/

Even better would be an object that we could place in the inventory that would make them always decline proposals, or something that we could change percentage chance of declining proposals on. Some sims ought to be able to get swept up in the heat of the moment, others ought not.

I'd like to see a mod that when sims come to ring your door bell they actually stay put so I can greet them without pausing.
Actually, I'd like a mod that slows walking sims down when I bring a mouse closer so I can click on them without pausing. TS2 sims walk so fast.

There is one: Christianlov's visitor manager-which will slow down and stop all passersby so that you can run out to greet them. If they're friends they'll come inside or in the yard to pay a visit.
It's available at Simbology:
Christianlov's Visitor Manager

Quote:
This mod will stop all sims from leaving the lot they arrive at, unless the "autogreet" function is disabled.

The setting of "Sit down" (if checked) will push all sims to stop at the lot and sit down on the nearest chair, and not move.

Unchecked, they will stand outside until either greeted ("Autogreet") or if they're known to the family, come into the house and interact with the household.

"Clear Visitors" does just that-orders all lot visitors to leave the lot immediately.



I was the one who posted it there. It's very useful. I have it in all my pixels houses.

@FranH thanks for that. But do I understand correctly that sims these sims will just stand there until I greet? What if I want them only to hang back for 10 minutes in game time?

Perhaps it already exists, but I'd love to see a mod that fixes the problem of sims bottle-necking in the snow - even if this would necessitate getting rid of the pretty snow trails they create when moving around.

Yes, they will, but if they are friends with the occupant, they'll come into the yard or in the house. As for the second question, I'd just say that you 'say goodbye' to them as soon as you're done with them.

I like the mod because when the passersby come they don't keep going, and sometimes it gets crowded when a dozen pixels show up to say hi. That's when I tell them all bye-bye and zap them off. But then again, my pixels like their neighbors and friends. They're a very sociable bunch!
