I didn't know that it was possible, but I just noticed that one of my sim's sons got the skin color from his grandfather!
I'm very fascinated, haha.

Bonehilda (supernatural) taught my dog the trick 'Play Dead', normally all she is good for is comedy relief, like mixing herself a drink, then having to mop up the puddle.

I always thought the Major Master, where you complete 3 degrees, was not much "bang for the buck"; 6 weeks of game play for 40,000 LTW points.
Au contraire, mon frère! (yes, i know, to be used ironically and I'm not your brother... but still)
The dream tree for this LTW is epic! You get more in the dream tree on the third degree than you get for the LTW itself!!

Edit: Also while my sim has caught fire many times at the inventing bench, I've never seen the bench itself catch fire. That's new to me.

Edit: I'm using NRAAS SP in the home world. I need to make settings for University, Future and vacation worlds, otherwise strange things happen like the university students start having children.

Edit again: I've been playing for years and I've never seen this... a Zombie spawned right outside my sims house. It's early afternoon, and no full moon. Also, I can't edit sim with either NRAAS MC or testing cheats and shift click. My game is corrupt, isn't it?

Edit once more cuz no double post: Ever have this happen to your sim? Talking to a sim on the phone, and she shows up where you're at... NOT talking on the phone. My sim must be talking to an automatic chat bot or something.

Yeah, I've had sims show up while they were supposedly on the phone, too. I just say that the other sim decided to see how long it would take your sim to notice that the voice on the phone is now coming from behind them...

(Although I still can't figure out how my sim manages to start woohoo with a romantic interest, and suddenly in the middle of it there is a pop-up that the sim who is being woohooed has gotten engaged to someone else. My best idea involves an accidental press of the answer button instead of the mute button and the caller misunderstands the "YES! YES! YES!" they are hearing when they propose over the phone. )

I am Ghost. My husband is sidneydoj. I post, he downloads, and I wanted to keep my post count.

My couple just had an anniversary. Didn't know that was a thing. Is there anything special I can do?
Meanwhile, my neurotic foster son kissed his gf and immediately wanted to brush his teeth three times :p
Also, the sim supposedly-but-not-actually talking to your sim on the phone.. I love stalking them while they're doing other things. Same with your prom date doing their homework at the gym while somehow simultaneously fetching drinks and doing chicken dances over at the prom. I guess there's a secret clone infestation...

I made sims that to me, were Major Tony Nelson and Jeanie from the old "I Dream of Jeanie" television sit com. I gave them what I thought to be their character's personality traits.
Well, NRAAS SP is too smart for that! It didn't take long for the playful Jeanie and the proper Major Nelson to split up. I thought about it for a minute, and yeah, that would be right. The show was funny because they were not compatible.
Instead of going to become an Astronaut, I found Maj. Nelson at the consignment as the clerk. That was Lawrence Fletcher's job.

I found out that if there's some pop music or whatever playing on a jukebox in a diner, my sims will sit and bop to the music in between bites and conversation.

It's pretty hilarious when my grumpy sims do it.

I'm almost positive Dr. Bellows must have had a hand in this somehow, even if he doesn't have a presence in your game.

Today I discovered that Sims can get "naughty" reputations....for apparently cheating on dead partners. One of my sims is in a new romantic relationship after his girlfriend died. And as soon as he kissed his new lover, I get hit with a "Kayden has a naughty reputation" pop-up.

Pets in Sims 3 just blows away Pets in Sims 2 (no bashing, I like both versions of The Sims). I just like how more expressive and how the pets do more in Sims 3. My new family I recreated from Sims 2 has a border collie and a pointer and I love how they interact with the Sim. Hugging my dog in real life is something I do a lot!

I've been playing Sims 2 more the last few months so I'm impressed again with the improvements in Pets.

I keep getting lots of new things to do in Sims 3 that only come as you acquire and play new eps. I still have more to experience even though making families is a long and involved process on my laptop. Body shop runs so slow...

Should be playing--instead probably downloading!

If you mean the zombie then that's normal, because you can't edit a transformed Sim. They should be editable again once they're de-zombified.

Also the zombie spawning during the day on a day that is not a full moon might have an easy, if longish explanation: The Sim you show is a magician and the game sends (inactive) performers to perform for tips around the neighbourhood on a random basis. This command cannot be cancelled and so they'll perform until they hit the exhausted level and all other commands will remain in the queue until they stop performing. So my guess is that they were sent to perform on the previous day (which was a full moon) and then also got randomly selected during the full moon for zombification, but as they were also performing the zombification couldn't be triggered until they became exhausted which seems to have only happened on the following day.
Inactive Sims can perform for quite a long time (longer than usual) if they happen to do this in a location that is far away from your active screen, which sends them into low detail mode. Low detail mode doesn't calculate motive decay for Sims the same way as high detail mode does for active Sims.

I didn't know where else to post this... you know those "online vs. in person" comparison pictures? That's pretty much what happens whenever I download a custom Sim from here or TSR and then see them in my game.

Downloading custom sims can be an unpleasant experience in general, you either get a sim with no links to the CC used or the links are all dead, or worse the CC has been merged into the sim file, which leaves you with a sim full of broken and/or bad CC.

You can also thank photoshop if you're downloading from simblrs. I've found if you just get good skins and hair and know your way around CAS you can do some pretty awesome makeovers with townies. Also unless you do a lot of editing and personalization with downloaded sims, they come with the style of whoever made them and that can look kind of odd if you try and fill a town with them.

How didja get so smart ?! That explains everything.
I just thought the game was corrupt, so I shut it down and went to a prior saved and hoped for the best.

I don't know if this is native to the game or the result of a mod, but...



All of my bullies resigned. I got a message stating that Jonah Sludge was no longer able to fulfill his duties as leader Town Thug and had been forced to resign. His brother, Peter, was next on the proverbial chopping block. About a half hour later, Charlotte is no longer the head bitch ( bitch is not the game term. It is what I like to call it...) and Lisa DiPerna is no longer the number one brat.

My plans for Jonah were foiled for his being a jackass, or lack of being a jackass. I was looking forward to almost everybody in town kicking his butt all over the place at least once. I might go along with my plan anyway after he stole $300.00 from Regina yesterday.

I only ever use downloaded sims as a working base to create sims from, to prevent puddingfaceitis, because if you don't have all the right CC and sliders as the creators, the sim on the website, or even the game thumbnail, never looks the same.

Nraas Story Progression, I think

Not sure which, But I added both MC and SP mods recently and have been seeing detailed textwalls like that since.

The entire town personalities feature is created and managed by NRaas StoryProgression. These slots and the antics they get up to do not exist in an unmodded game. The notification summary is of course from SP as well, those can be switched off if the player prefers to not get the walls of text.

One thing that will trigger the forced resignation of SP Personality leaders, clan members, and others so designated is switching into these households as actives even if the game clock is paused. None of them are meant to be relevant to or allowed for on the current actively played household. Or, also possible, the town's storyline just went in a different direction.

I don't mind the wall of text. It's always interesting to read when I'm only half paying attention. If they were messages from EA telling me what to do, that would not go over well.

The only time I interact with these sims is if I spot them out and about somewhere; like Jonah sitting on the floor at the laundromat in front of the women's bathroom door with a laptop. My sims were sleeping at the time while I was doing my usual trollin' around the neighborhood to see what everybody is up to. I'll behave and not talk about the scenarios that popped into my head when I saw him doing that. I can say that I called him a perv and left.

What caught me off guard was the fact that this happened on my new save which I'm into less than 10 hours with 99.9% of that time being focused on one household. My old save which I'm still fiddling with when I have the patience for it ( I found a big problem yesterday) this particular group remains intact. It is a weird contrast. In one save, it is now all sunshine and rainbows and in the other, it's all about being bullies and obnoxious.
