Same, they get stuck at places where they really have no reason to - like one townie I saw repeatedly route failing in the corner of a fence on some community lot. Then I watched as a taxi with 4 other sims pulled up, they got out and walked right past her, literally 10 cm away and they all routed fine. The dumbass got reset right after. It's like they're going out of their way to be extra stupid. I'll turn off auto reset next time and check out where they get stuck the most and if anything can be done to help or the game's just screwing with me at this point.

That's the point where the mother says "You woke the kid, YOU can get the kid back to sleep. Now."

Sent my active family to France to celebrate the oldest daughter graduating high school. Half the town is in France in the same bloody hostel we're staying in. Since I've got bed freedom installed and the mother has the "everybody's best friend" and "celebrity" skill challenges completed, she has woken up to find randos in her bed every night. This has lead to me having her double up with one of her children. The oldest daughter and middle daughter doubled up in one bed and I go to have the mom bunk with the child son. Apparently randos can sleep in her bed, but she can't sleep in the same bed as her son!? So she goes to sleep in another double bed and her exboyfriend hops into bed with her. I can't wait until our visa is at such a level as to preclude public sleeping arrangements! We came to France to get away from all you townies!

Why are teens and children trick or treating in freaking winter?!?!? Cause, seriously, I can't even get my sims to do it in autumn when it's supposed to happen. Plus, I can't actually direct them to give trick or treat and it doesn't show up on their queue or anything so it just destroys everything!!!

I've found Trick or Treating in Sims 3 to be a huge pain in the butt. It was borked in my various games so many times. I think ONCE it worked properly--the kids got the option to trick or treat in a family and they went to a neighbor's for candy. But it eventually got stuck and they all stood around.

I miss my beloved dog so much. RIP LUNA 12/17/18

What is it with trick-or-treaters and rocking chairs? If I have one in my house I get sims hanging around outside throwing tantrums because (as I presume from their thought bubbles) they want to use my rocking chair and can't. Look kid, I'll give you all the candy you like, but get your own frickin' rocking chair!

Rocking chairs are such a magnet for sims! I have a trampoline in the yard that no one uses, but they are lining up for the freaking rocking chair!

I can't help wondering how a rocking chair, if you were to place one outdoors, would rank vis-*-vis a lawn sprinkler.

I think it would rank below diving board, but above sprinkler? I made a pool with a splash pad and a diving board and sims ignore the sprinklers in favor of the diving board. This is the first time I've ever had a child skill in the hidden athletics skill!

When your game loads quick and runs perfectly for about 30 minutes, then gets stuck on a stutter and completely locks up. It's not even crashed or anything it just......it's not doing anything the full 60 times a second. I can kill it just fine but I don't want to, there's nothing inherently wrong with the process itself. I hate this fucking pile of garbage.

It's also not great that all Sim-to-Sim interactions look exactly the same. It's the same exaggerated arm-waving, gawking, mouth-gaping and nodding all the bleeding time. I can NOT make a believable scene out of this. I can't even get any footage out of this. I just spent 30+ minutes to get not even 2 minutes of footage, which is a pretty poor ratio, and I'll be surprised if I can get more than 6 seconds out of it in the edit.

EDIT: 3 seconds and 10 frames. Better than nothing!

Look out for BRIDGEPORT'88 - it's the hottest new show on YT this season!
Already renewed for '89!

(Oh, and join my dumb Discord server for more on that or if you like dead things, my Tumblr.)

I had a sim going to college for 2 weeks and I think there was not a single day whitout someone setting the dorm kitchen on fire! And my sim have to pay to replace the stuff! WHY??! The dorm belongs to the campus and if the insurance company pays (they always did) then it's up to the campus to replace the stuff.
