I discovered a method for making all the adorable pushchairs and prams and things useful!

My sims can't push their infants, but I do have the toddlers-on-community-lots mod. It occurred to me that these non-pushable pushchairs are SUPER useful for this. I put one in the proud parent's inventory (whichever parent is taking the munchkin shopping), and when they get to the community lot, before baby can make their way to god knows where and start pestering strangers on the street for attention, I yank the pushchair out of inventory, plunk it down and have mum or dad insert the infant. Then, using moveobjects, I can move the pushchair with the baby in it to whichever bit of the shop mum or dad needs to be in to get their shopping done.

Baby remains contained, gurgling and cooing, or raging like a tiny rain monster - just like in real life - while mum or dad shops in peace. And, like in real life, the damn thing takes up space and forces every other sim on the lot to go around.

I love this method so much I had to share in case anyone else is like me and prefers for their sim's children to only befriend adults that their parents actually know or that they are related to. I'm ruthlessly protective of my sims' relationship panel, but I want the sproglets to be able to have a life off their home lot too. This solves that problem.

Tried and tested with Erin and Ajay Loner and their adorable tot Savannah. She actually was perfectly happy in her pram, so Ajay was able to get clothes for the whole family (he rolled a want) and I couldn't have been happier.

Sims are happy to live underwater. Once I get my main computer out of the shop, I'm going to download Midge's mermaid stuff and look for some furnishings that look natural under the sea. I suspect this will require another mod for cold days though.

That's very good. I was just going to put one at a table on the sidewalk in front of my new tiny restaurant in build mode, and then leave it there to be used like a high chair when any toddlers come. I like the inventory idea, too, though.

One of my sims threw an anniversary, several the guest used the owner's bath and bed and woke up to leave the lot when the party was over. I've never seen guests sleeping in others houses unless it's a sleepover.

I like to put high chairs in my restaurants for families with toddlers - that way everyone can sit at the table together I also use the booster seats from AffinitySims for slightly older kids!

I wish I could have video taped it, but my sim blew a fart!! First time I have ever seen that. After she ate, she stuck her but out then green fume came out. I first thought it was her hygiene, but it was ok. So funny LOL.

Yea, funny. Till a Sim who would never do such a thing, DOES it. Or till you've seen it (and the belching) too many times. Then, even if you're 6, it's not funny. I have a mod that stops it.

Why do they do it just after eating and then waft it towards the sims still eating? That's just rude!

I'm not sure whether this mod by @Lamare was ever officially released, but I tested it in my game and it was awesome! Have you seen it? Seems like you might enjoy it.
There are two files. I only tried the toddler-restaurant-outing one but it worked so well that I built a whole community lot just so I could have that one high chair in it.

Maxis never made a single hoodie for young adult female sims. Weren't they a thing in the 2000s? Did 2005 university students not wear hoodies? Weren't zip up ones at least a popular thing? What the heck Eaxis?? Oh also I think the Sims 3 probably did university a lot better, with its actual need to study, and it's degree specific objects to use, it actually seems like someone at least talked to students while making it. Also smartphones and social media are just a little more relevant to today but that's actually not important especially since the game is from 2004-2008, so yeah. 3 has tuition, some whiteboards, study groups, and older students, where as 2 doesn't. University students in 2 have it easy, EASY

Why do I have a badly done MS Paint spiral as my profile pic you ask? Well you see I have nothing better to put there than a thing I quickly made during a grade 10 business class.

I'm way older than 6 and I think farts are hilarious at least when sims do them, they don't smell.

Two arrived sims at their owned community lot had died. Grim reaper then closes down the venue for them, whistling away the customers.

Sims 2 devs disliked lectures. They liked dorm life.

I read about this somewhere.

Hoodies were very much a thing in mid-2000s universities, if the lectures I was in when a student back then were anything to go by (they were usually worn with the hood down unless the weather was awful, so the developers didn't even have that awkward neck/body animation issue to contend with).

Mind you, the students at my dorms often seemed to have trouble with self-catering facilities, not to mention trying to juggle working at businesses with lectures...

Whoa! Is there an effect of water running off the roof when it rains?!

That sims can stuff their faces directly from the fridge when hungry enough! I feel like I’ve heard about this but never seen it. I’m sure I’m late on discovering/witnessing this, but I literally take years off at a time with this game, so I still find basic things out when I’m back on a playing kick as I currently am.

I had two sims on a date, and one of them had a fear of their date smelling bad. I didn't know that was a thing. It's highly realistic too.

I also have something I did not know. Sims can *cry* sitting on a chair...lol
I mean, I know they will show some sadness and worrying behavior when their aspiration go south, but calmly sitting? I just never saw it happened. Poor Sadie, nothing seems to be working right now.
Job is hard to find, money is slowly running away, a 4th kid on the way...
