1  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Sims portraits disappearing? on: March 15, 2010, 03:57:24 am
Hello everyone.

I have an issue with some of my Sims' painted portraits and I was wondering if it is something wrong with my game or a game glitch happening to others players, too.
The issue in question is that sometimes [not always] when my Sims move to a new house and are about to bring their portraits out of their inventory and hung them on the wall, the portraits will change into some common Maxis paintings. A couple of times the same has happened to the photos they took in photobooths, only that the photos will appear completely black.  Whether it is a portrait or a photo, I find it sort of heart-breaking, role-playing wise speaking, because some of these portraits and photos come from their childhood and can't be replaced.

This issue has occured twice with young adult Sims who had finished their Uni studies and moved back to their home (their portraits were made during their student lives), and a couple of times with Sims from my regular neighbourhood when they moved to a new house.

I was wondering if anyone else has experienced the same, and if you have any idea as to the cause of it. My best guess so far is that these objects become corrupted over time, but I don't understand how. If, for example, it has to do with how long I have been playing with a particular Sim, or if there is a bad saved file somewhere. Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks in advance!
2  Simmers' Paradise / Where Can I Find...? / WCIF male hair same as on this photo? on: June 23, 2009, 07:18:10 am
Hi everyone.

I'm looking for male hair as close as possible to the ones shown on these photos:

Thank you!
Edit: I changed image host. Now they should show properly.
3  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Adult Sims became ...students overnight. on: March 20, 2009, 08:21:01 pm
As the title says, one of my adult couples turned into students again. I'm explaining:

I was playing the Liu family. At that time another of my Sims, Yashamaru Ishikawa, was visiting them. It was the time the butler's shift was nearly over and he was about to leave. Then, the gypsy appeared to leave the geenie bottle in the lot. When she left I checked all the residents' memories to see who got it. None of them had memories of getting it. In game paused mode I used "Make selectable" on the visitor, Yashamaru, to check if he had got it. He hadn't. Also, I had checked if he was supposed to be at work at that time or having a day off, and his job displayed okay. I made him Unselectable again, unpaused and carried on with the game, the Lius said good night to him and then one of the Liu couples went on holidays.

Today I loaded the neighbourhood, entered the Ishikawas lot and found them sleeping, as last time I had left them in their beds. The mess part: when I went through their job screen to check who has a day off so as to see who is going to keep the kids after school, I found out that both Yashamaru Ishikawa and Cloud had gone back to ...students!

Instead of their jobs, the screen displays their majors, they are both half way their final semester. Their appearance is that of an adult, but their voices are YAs ones.  Their in-game memories appear to be displayed correctly up to that point: graduation from college, carreers, friends, wedding, birth of children, fulfilled LTWs and all.

Cloud's brother who is living with them was not affected by that mess. He is still an adult with his job intact. The kids themselves and their memories are also fine.

So far I have tried but *without saving my lot* afterwards:

1. Used Pescado's lot debugger to force errors in All, which grew them up into adults, but it's weird to see their children getting the memory of their parents growing up well and graduating --again!

2. When the butler came in the morning he was stalking them in their bedroom. I used "moved objects on" to delete him, and all of a sudden Yashamaru and Cloud grew up to ...adults!

3. Cloud's other brother tried to ask him move in with him but the "Propose" option in the pie menu does not appear at all (only in Cloud's case).

My question is: Has this ever happened to anyone before? and, What do you think is the culprit for that royal mess?   I could try open SimPE and check there if I knew what exactly should I look for.

Any suggestion/ help is greatly appreciated.


4  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Sim on Date obsessed with falling for someone else on: October 28, 2008, 06:31:21 am
Your Sim wants to Ask his other half on Date, you do him the favour only to discover he rolls the want --very persistently I must say-- to Fall in love with someone he had a short affair back in his College years. All that despite the fact this happened Sim-years ago; despite he is happy with his significant other; despite he has family and kids he adores; despite he has 3 bolts with his hubby/wiffy and only a single bolt with the other guy.  This is happening every single time the specific Sim starts a date with his other half.

Has this ever happened in your game? I am trying to figure out whether this is due to some game's mechanics (e.g. the game tries to screw you) or it has to do with some kind of nostalgic thoughts from Sim's part.

Any ideas are greatly appreciated!
