@joandsarah77 thanks, I must have used a skybox then as I remember TS2 sky being vibrant with white pillowy clouds.
@Sunrader thanks for the invitation but I haven't got TS2 yet and my old laptop that has all the games installed won't work anymore

After congratulating myself on bringing Amar Larrea back home safely I find I have a more serious problem in Veronaville which I may not be able to fix so easily. I created a couple of Sims in CAS, with a view to making them townies. They are a father (adult) and daughter (child) and my plan was to change the father to a teen, make them siblings, and then make them into townies. (I like having townies who are related to each other -- like the Tricou teens.) I moved them into my Downtown Changing Hut, a tiny lot which provides basic accommodation for a few hours for CAS Sims who are destined to become townies. They moved in and started to dance together, but as soon as I started trying to instruct them the game crashed back to the operating system. ("The application has stopped working and will be terminated.") When I restarted the game, they were standing outside the house, but, as soon as I tried to do anything with them, the game crashed again. I restarted the game, moved them back into the Family Bin, replaced the furniture in the Changing Hut (which of course had all been deleted). Then I moved them in again. I let the game run for a few seconds and they started to dance again. I paused the game and saved. But as soon as I tried to do anything with them, the game crashed again.

Now it seems clear to me that either one (or both) of my new Sims is badly glitched, or else the lot is. And, as I've used the lot before, my suspicions must rest on my new Sims. I'll try moving them back to the family bin, and then move them into a different lot -- possibly a completely empty one. Then I'll see if I can play therm. If the game still crashes, I think the only thing I can do is revert to a recent backup. I've extracted their likenesses in SimPE, so I will be able to clone them in Body Shop and bring them back. But I've got several other new families in the Family Bin; what if any of them are glitched too? I've got lots of backup, but I could potentially lose a lot of gameplay. In the past my game has been remarkably stable and free of crashes. Any suggestions as to whit I should do?

Test them in a different lot first. Make sure that it's not just that the lot has glitched.

Are they wearing CC? I would be more inclined to think that could be borked before sims fresh out of CAS.

I moved them into a completely empty 2x1 lot. It was even worse: merely moving the mouse caused the game to crash. I didn't even get the "The application has crashed" message -- the game just stopped running and disappeared off my screen as if it had never started. There's obviously something far wrong, and it seems probable that the current version of Veronaville is toast. I'm not too bothered about that, as I do have plenty of recent backups. Sooner or later I'll probably have to restore from backup, but meantime I can use the current 'hood to try to test just where the problem lies.

Yes they are wearing CC -- most of my Sims do. I probably have other Sims wearing the same clothes, but I can't swear to it. I can't take them back into CAS to change their clothes. I'll try using a teleporter to summon them, one at a time to another lot, and see which, if either of them, causes the game to crash. If I can, I'll then try to change their clothes. I'll also try moving in my other Family Bin Sims to see if it's not a general problem moving Sims in.

I know that there are serious problems with my hard disk, and I've been putting off changing it. So it may be a corrupted file somewhere in the game files (under Program Files). If that's the case, I'll just have to accept that I can't fix it until I change the disk.

You don't have to change their clothes if you can remember the names of what they're wearing. Move those files elsewhere.

It seems more likely to me that, if you know there's serious problems with your hard drive, the problem's more likely to be there than in your game. I hate to tell you not to play till you can get a new computer; but you always knew you were running on a machine that couldn't take it, and every time you load the game you're straining it again.

Ugly is in the heart of the beholder.

You're right of course, Peni. But I'm so totally addicted to my Sims. I get withdrawal symptoms if I don't meet up with them for few days.

I managed to identify who is causing the trouble. It's this innocuous-looking child:

You wouldn't think so to look at her, but as soon as she appears on a lot, everything stops working!

I moved one of my other Family Bin CAS families in, and they moved in no bother. I saved the game and added a teleporter to their lot. I was able to summon the adult Donald Dent with the teleporter, and my Sims were able to interact with him with no problems. But, when I summoned Amy, the game crashed as soon as she appeared.

I could try the shorts and the hair with another black-haired girl child already in the game (Beatrice Monty?) , and check that they work. And I can try moving in my other Bin CAS Sim families to make sure they're ok. But I suspect the fault may be in Amy's character file. With all the disk problems I've been having it may contain bad sectors or something like that. I know I really shouldn't be playing with the disk in this state but my Sims keep drawing me back. I can't resist the lure of spending just a little time with them.

Andrew, make a backup, move all your cc out then try loading up this child. if she works sans CC then you will know it's something that she is wearing.

Well, there's obviously a poltergeist. SimSurgery can give you a fully exorcised child. If removing the demon infested clothes doesn't work, maybe just clone and rebuild her?

Or an error log might give you a clue if it's some other object - like, occasionally, I've noticed an error because the sim planned to interact with some glitched object. I could see it in the error log, but not in the game, since the object borked and the sim didn't interact with it where I could see it.

It's that Peggy Hair! I changed Beatrice Monty to it, and the game immediately crashed. It may be ok for older Sims, but it clearly doesn't work for little girls. Now I just have to identify which files go with it.

At least I know what the problem is. And I assume that, when I fix it, my game will still be playable.

Which Peggy hair is it? I'd like to avoid putting it in my game.

Peggy used different numbers for the same hair, and seemed to change her numbering system over the years. But it seems to be the one named PeggyFreeMeshHair0029-female-07506-black.package and 7 other colours. The mesh is peggyhairmesh0029-070506.package. I'm pretty sure I got it from SimsCave after Peggy's site stopped working. It is in archive 2007-3.rar and inside the archive it is in subfolder Free - ID #003101.

All that I know at present is that the black child version doesn't work in my game. It is possible that my disk problems have corrupted the file. I'll try to make further tests.

What were the pre-written stories that are supposed to happen when you play the premades the first time? I remember Cassandra being left on the altar.

Mary-sue gets a chance card that, no matter what, makes her lose her job so she can catch Daniel cheating with Kaylinn;
The Caleintes always receive the burglar visit on the first night of game;
Don is supposed to hire the maid because the house is fully of rubbish (so he can invite Kaylinn over);

Can't think about anything else that heavily influences the game-play - aside from existing relationships and so.

If Cassandra asks Don to marry her, she gets left at the altar. If she kisses him a couple of times first, the marriage goes through successfully.

The Caliente sisters get robbed, and Dina is set up to marry Mortimer with wants and everything. When she does, Nina gets a want and a note to move out.
Dustin gets called by Angela to sneak out, and it will always get him arrested. Also Brandi will lecture him when he comes home from school.
Mary-Sue has a rigged chance card, and if Daniel has a want to woohoo with Mary-Sue when Kaylynn arrives, it will change to her instead. Also Angela always brings home Dustin.
Nervous is the one with the roaches, he gets 51364761 actions to go to the fridge and roaches just appear.
General Buzz will always come over if Olive calls him.
Tank will always come over when you play the Smiths.
Tank will always only have the Military appear when he searches for a job.
Vidcund always gets abducted.
Tybalt always comes over when you play the Monty's.
The Summerdreams are having a party when you play them, and Puck's supposedly scripted to have his first kiss, even if he's already kissed someone before.

Okay I'm going to throw this in this thread because I SWEAR I am not going crazy...

A few days ago (maybe a week? two weeks?) I swear someone posted the extracted files of Sims 3 TV shows to put into Sims 2? I can't seem to find it in any thread now... apologies if it's been deleted for whatever reason.
