I found that the new kleptomaniac trait (and it's mod to make it autonomous) is pretty fun when you have two of the same type on a lot. They'll spend their time scamming one another and others, stealing and restealing back their ill-gotten gains.

The Strangetown head has glasses. From some angles it's easily mistaken for a round bolder with moss on top.

I don't know what Will looks like: glasses and moss?

So have you found out if it does anything?

Sorry for all the posts; now for MINE:
I figured out the answer to my question about calling in sick; what happens if you call in sick every day? Sim called in sick 3 days in a row and got;" Did you think you could fool me with that fake coughing? You're fired!"
But now I'm wondering if Sim will still be fired if call in every-other day..

You could always test it, and not save at the end of your said days of testing.
Talking about call in sick...I always had the same answer : *You don't look fine, stay home and keep your vacation day...* But my Sims were never sick when they called. Mostly, I was making them call in sick because they were too tired to go.
The ONE day my Sim is actually coughing and sick for real...I received a different answer : Stay home, but we'll take that vacation day* I was like..hey!!!!
Never had that fired answer as of yes, needless to say..

OmG, I would LOVE your help. I posted on the help section before I even started and no one was dumb, err, sweet enough to volunteer. PM when you are ready to suffer, err, I mean start.

Thanks again! :3

EDIT: @ Rosebine, I once had a guy fired when he called in sick. He was laughing a lot when he did, though. And it's only happened once in all these years.

How come all sim portraits (+wants) are in the same pose?

I think it's a portrait Mod, it could be this one: http://modthesims.info/d/609265/static-ui-poses.html

I learned Sims can get rejected for WooHoo and get a unique memory afterwards

Bahahahaha, well... I've just learned that if a sim gets rejected on "Ask Back To My Place", the date immediately ends. Camryn Cooke, wife of Julien Cooke, has been cheating on her husband since the first moment she was out of my control and I've just been running with it. Her current goal is to get ten different lovers. She had asked Bruce Rauscher out on a date and he was giving her some mixed signals. So she tried to coax him back to the townhouse, where she might have a little more luck. But no dice. Bruce declined the offer . Even so, it still ended as a "great date".

I learned that my groups.cache file was corrupt and needed to be deleted. I was trying to run Sims 2, and it wouldn't cooperate - it'd start to load up for a few seconds (was watching the Resource Monitor which I like to have open at all times) and then disappear. At first I thought I'd need to repair the game, but nope - just had to delete groups.cache and accessory.cache.

I remember I had an old mod for the static portraits way back in the early days, and one EP (Seasons, I think?) made it incompatible. So when I first entered my game after installing, everyone's portraits were seizing non-stop.

Static? How do you mean 'static portraits'?

The UI portraits poses constantly change after changing clothes after a certain EP which they didn't do so in the base game. Can't remember the EP that brought that feature or bug in but static portrait mods prevent a new pose from being generated every time a sim changes clothing category ie from causal to PJs or swimwear to gymwear.

In inspiredzones case a sim probably walked outside with seasons, the mod inspiredzones had used wasn't updated for that new coding and so error spammed, throwing a tantrum.
At least thats my understanding of the probable cause.

Had the same issue recently due to a different problem.
Its funny for 10 seconds, then its just annoying.

Oh, the Criminal career reward can break! Ok, I guess it's not so surprising, because it's a machine after all, but I found it amusing.
One of my Sims repaired it, but now that I think of it... it would have been funny to hire a repairman to fix this sort of not-so-legal stuff.
