Any sim will swim across a pool blocking its route if there's a ladder to act as a portal and suck them in. In Widespot's Swimming Hole, where the pool takes up 80% of the lot, it's common for people to swim in order to get to the picnic tables or to greet someone.

Ugly is in the heart of the beholder.

from my understanding, there is no visible wetness for anything in this game.
burglar; swimming I think would be audible to just player. burglar alarm would wake sims.

Back when I used to deliver newspapers, on rainy days we put them into clear plastic baggies. When tied (and not the cheap ones that split apart at the seams), they kept papers pretty well dry:

They also made good boot linings for when the snow came up over the top of them.

Ehhh, not really. You couldn't really hear someone swimming from the inside of your house, as the sound of swimming produces of a frequency kind of the same as a rustle of the falling leafs. Besides, a burglar would be stealthy and would be careful to not speed up as that would make a lot of noice. Even If somebody did heard it, you kinda accept that a lot of things swim in the pool (like animals), so you would eventually get used to the sound and might not come to your mind that as a specific burglar could be trying to breaking into your house while your asleep. Especally talking about somebody that lives in a houseboat, lol.

I'm more of a surprise that it didn't cancel the action of a newspaperboy. He came in, swam up the pool, and drop the newspaper as If nothing happen. They also look that they really enjoy burning extra calories in the pool. It's a bit funny when they do the "ugh, water got in my ears, better pour it out" animation before leaving the lot with trunks/bikini on.

You can have a date at the same time you are running a business lot?

My business owner was casually talking to some patron and he's like "you know what, I know someone perfect for you - want to be set up on a blind date?" and I accepted and she had a date while running the business.

Uh oh! My social bar is low - that's why I posted today.

Does the Chris Hatch Orgy Hot Tub need FT or later? If it does work with BV could I a get a link to Chris Hatch's Orgy Hot Tub?

I have seen the Want of Purchase a Robot and completed it by buying a Servo
I don't recall if I have seen the Want of WooHoo with a Robot or not, however have completed it by WooHooing with a Servo
I don't recall if it was a Want or a Fear, but I have seen Marry a Robot

Definitely not visible wetness in the game, especially when Sim hairs are not affected by water or gravity. Shoot, even Sims will use the toilet with their pants still up, so I don't see why that has to be censored.

In the Sims 3, they censor horse butts when they pee.

They're censoring what's not happening.

It's the explanation for why they censor breastfeeding in TS4 as well; without the censor, you can see that the baby's somehow getting milk right through the shirt. But that's how I see it all the time in TS2 with the censor turned off, so I don't really care. Seeing sim baby's wrist-feed doesn't exactly phase me.

Just for giggles, I combined the Newson and Ottomas family in my test hood. The family portrait got a little crowded, and Sharla went missing from it.

Vampires, in bat form, using the elevator animation is a bit disappointing. Too much clipping happening.

P.S. Speaking of that, I just had a weird glitch/bug. Not sure If the result is positive, but somehow the baby ringtone rang when I directed one to try for baby while the partner was out there skating on a ring

I discovered that I need to run Sims2cat as Administrator to get it to work these days.


...it seemed to be a game about watching other people sitting around the house, on a computer. It just seemed so lame. - Rod Humble on his first impression of "The Sims".

Alternately, if you install it anywhere other than program files (mine's under C:\Games\Tools\The Sims\Sims 2 Categorizer\Sims2Cat.exe) you won't need administrator.

Angry ghost can destroy tombstones and cause them to disappear ... I never had this happen before; actually I've never encountered angry ghost. I was playing the church cemetery lot where three townies are buried. All three of them were out and their haunting started out mild and playful, but soon they were angry and all over the place. They were jumping in and out of their tombstones, causing them to float in the air and scaring everyone in the cemetery. The next thing I know one of them literally scared the life out of a visiting townie - jumped back into his tombstone and it disappeared. Not sure what happened to the townie because he was no where to be found; the Grim Reaper didn't show up so it's a possibility he ran away. Since one of the tombstones disappeared I quit the lot without saving as I wasn't in the mood to go through all the steps to get it back. I returned to the lot again and the three townies were as quiet as a church mouse. They didn't come out at all.

Cyjon addresses this in his Ghost Hack:

Bug Fixes - Contains a critical fix that prevents ghosts from haunting tombstones, potentially destroying them, shredding character data and corrupting your neighborhood.

My life is a series of incomprehensible sketches, illegible notes, and running away from angry reptiles. I don't enjoy that last one.
