Really fantastic OLD lot : modthesims.info/download.php?t=341000
Fallout 3 - Museum of History (Underworld)

Squeam is not on MTS that I could see.

Question : Since this is a community lot-- I was surprised to see a SIM on the 2nd floor by the Hair salon chair. Do I delete her ? (Gina Pai)
Or is she just a "preview" of what sim will appear by the hair salon chair when I start playing the lot ?

Also, the large pallet bonfires in the building have had the 'burn' animation removed ; does that mean all of the pallet bonfires lose their burn animation ? Didn't want to lose that since it plays a role in my apocalypse hood.
There is nothing in the description about a global mod for the large pallet bonfire that would affect all other pallet bonfires.
So maybe it's a mod for just this lot ?

I just downloaded this and placed it in my hood.. but haven't played it yet by having sims come visit.
Should I just delete it ?

Went in a looked at this lot while in-game , the second time I'd entered it before allowing my sims to 'go there'.
The second visit, the lights were all turned on , and the sim standing by the makeover salon chair was gone !

Didn't play it with my sims ; but exited the game and looked at the Character Files in the my doc. area of the game ; and it said 222 Ch. files !
So the added sim in this community lot counts as a sim !!!

Fortunately there was a backup I'd made, and it had 221 Ch. files.
Not sure, but this lot might be borked ?
I know deleting sims is a vbt.

I really want to have the loop fixes in my game too even though it is not recommended in the sticky essential mods threads because I hate that start doing action, drop it immedially, start action again etc. : http://cyjon.net/node/123

the other 2 are from the recommended lists. and I have made sure that computer fixes load after VisitorsBehave as per here: https://sims.fandom.com/wiki/User:K...recommended_DLC

computerFixes: http://www.simbology.com/smf/index.php?topic=13.0
visitors behave: http://cyjon.net/node/227

Is it safe to leave these conflicts? If so, which load order should I use?

1st creaturefixes
2nd Visitors Behave
3rd ?
4th ?

Conflicts can't hurt your game -- as in, can't hurt installation files or neighborhoods -- so they are all "safe" in that sense. The question is how you want your game to work. Is it currently working the way you want, without "jump bugs" where Sims are constantly resetting and without, say, missing pie menu options? If so, then you're fine. If it's not working the way you want, then you noodle around with load order and see if you can fix it that way. If you can't, then you'll have to make decisions about what to keep and what you'll have to let go of.

I'm mostly found on (and mostly upload to) Tumblr these days because, alas, there are only 24 hours in a day.

@Tleilaxu3

This Sim that appeared in the hair salon. Did she just appear when you opened the lot in Buy/Build mode to look at the lot? Sims do occasionally appear on community lots when you open them in Buy/Build mode. I think it's because for a tiny fraction of a second the lot is opened as if it were in Live mode, and sometimes it's long enough for an appropriate NPC to spawn. I've seen a chef appear in a Downtown restaurant this way. She will be a "real" Sim. If you already have a hairdressing chair on an unowned community lot, the game will probably have used an existing hairstylist. But if this is the first unowned hairdressing chair in the neighbourhood, the game would create a new one. It's not necessarily a sign of corruption. By opening both the current 'hood and the backup in SimPE, you should be able to check just who the 222nd Sim is

All told, seeing you have a recent backup, then you are safer to restore from it rather than just playing on. But you shouldn't have to give up on the downloaded lot if you like it. There are ways to clean lots to make them safe. I believe Jawusa is the expert on the subject. squeam says, "Clone Tested: 2 days" so it looks like they play-tested a copy of the lot rather than the original.

I suggest that you open the sim2pack file with Clean Installer, and look to see if there's anything in the file that shouldn't be there (like Sims or global mods). Delete any such content before proceeding. Then install the lot in a test 'hood (preferably one with no Sims at all). Examine it carefully there before installing it again in your "proper" 'hood.

@iCad Oh really, that's a relief! TS2 is so different from TS3.

I noticed just now when the game loads, the screen flashes to black very briefly once until it goes to the neighbourhood selection menu.

@Tleilaxu3 it sounds like the person who built that lot had the salon chair spawn a NPC. These days we say its safest for creators to check the lot for any 'live' actions but especial NPC's and clean the lot before packaging. In build mode while building a community lot the lot can 'go live' while saving.
If I was you I would revert to a backup if you have one. if not, clean the lot: http://modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=609188 You can now do so easily with the add on to Lot Compressor. Then I would run Hood Checker.

Andrew since this is an MTS lot it should not have sims or hacks.


Good to see you back @Rosebine.

The site is down for a bit while they pull a full backup, part of efforts to get everything working well again: https://simfileshare.tumblr.com/pos...owntime-warning

Basically, keep an eye on their tumblr. They're good about answering questions and making updates about what's going on. But, you know, bear in mind that this is a person with a real life, too. It's not like there's a whole team of techie employees working on this stuff. Patience is a virtue, and no one's gonna die if they can't download a piece of CC exactly when they want it.

I have had "You Are What You Eat" now for well over 8 years and they have worked for me, Maxis Match plus over 20 different ones not only defaults.

They look way better in game than what the link show: http://www.digitalperversion.net/ga...hp?topic=9469.0

Everybody has different tastes in this area. What's popular right now may or may not be a look that you're interested in. What do you prefer in the area of skins and hairs?

What helps also, is to go take a look at other people's sim pictures, in the Picture Forums. I am pretty sure, most of us know, what our sims are wearing, so we'd be able to let you know if ever you like what you see..

@RoxEllen1965 I don't know my preferences yet that why I wanted to download a bunch of popular stuff and then nuke one by one until I only have stuff that suits me I used to like ultra realistic but I think now my taste is more maxis match but not that maxis match as in it's purest form. It always depends on each individual mod

I find that many old blogs that I liked do not exist anymore and browsing modthesims downloads people have dead links to genetics and meshes

@Rosebine cool didn't think the picture forums were that active here anymore

Thanks very much for the info @iCad dear. I posted the info you gave and quoted you with credit to a Sims 2 group {a closed group} I belong to on Facebook. BTW It was the updated VC Mod by MidgeTheTree and a new one by her: Matchmaker Name Fix. I certainly don't need to get either right now though.

Take care.

Is reputation only affected when sims interact with townies? I ask after watching Armand DeBateau and Samantha Cordial having a prolonged and heated barney on a community lot - with plenty of poking and fisticuffs. Yet, they both came away from the fracas with their Social Celebrity status intact.

No, playables affect it too. I have hardly any townies, just a handful and all my playables have some level of reputation from horrible to great.

Thanks joandsarah, that confirms what I had always thought. Which is why I'm confused that these two Belladonna stalwarts could make such a spectacle of themselves on a community lot, without it affecting their impeccable social standing. They were not my active household at the time - I made them selectable to check out the damage, only to find their reputations had incongruously remained intact.

I had been wondering if the game allocated reputation for inactive sims based on their personality profile? I've observed a few of my nicer inactive CAS sims tend to become Social Celebrities very quickly, having made very few appearances on community lots - or at least not that I've noticed anyway.

I found the lighting in The House of the Fallen Trees annoying. I did some research by looking at old threads and according to what I read to change it, you have to type in the cheat window 'SetLotLightingFile clear'.

My question is pretty simple, anyone tried the cheat on this lot and if so did it work?

I've only played that lot briefly, so I'd never noticed it, but, I just did it, and yeah, it changed the lighting. I'm also just noticing the roof is poking through the ceiling. Oh, Maxis.

Speaking of Social Status. does status actually DO anything? Like make it harder or easier to make friends?
