1  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / BodyShop Nose Issue on: July 23, 2007, 11:18:14 am
Moderators, if this is in the wrong place please feel free to relocate this thread. If it's already been covered, please let me know where.

Does anyone know how to work well enough with the BodyShop to make it so that there's not some grotesque dimple directly above the bridge of the nose just below the middle of the eye brows? I've been tinkering with it for the past couple of hours and I can't get rid of it. Or at least I can't figure out how to get rid of it. I attached a picture of what I am talking about. The yellow circle is there to highlight the problem and make it more visible.

2  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Discussion / Where's Sims2Carsource? on: July 02, 2007, 04:10:27 pm
About a week or so ago went down. They had a page up letting their members know it was going down but to "stay tuned" for further details. Now that page is gone and there were no "further details". Does anyone know where it moved to, or if it's even back up again? Thanks in advance for any helpful information.
3  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Hot Chocolate Is Undrinkable, and other concerns on: April 02, 2007, 11:51:44 pm
I'm not sure why, but I can't get my Sims to drink the hot chocolate they make. They make it, and hold the mug for about a second then it vanishes and their hand goes down to their side again. I've tried this on residential lots, community lots, and even a dorm. Still they cannot drink hot coco. I've read a few threads in various places on other sites/forums, but they've only been met with others saying they have the same problem or the moderators telling the people with the problem to do some long winded process that would eat up enough time to do something constructive, like rebuild the twin towers and have enough time left over to order a pizza. I've looked over their "solutions" but who honestly has the time to remove everything from several folders (including Downloads), start the game up, quit the game, place one file/folder back in, start up the game again, quit again (if that didn't show the problem), rinse repeat, and then move on to placing back in each and every bit of custom content one at a time (when you have say roughly around 15,000 items in there) just to see which file it is? I don't know about anyone else, and I really don't know about the moderators that wrote that thread, I also don't know how seriously outdated that "solution" has become, but I don't have the time to waste doing that. I'd like to enjoy things such as life. Does anyone have any helpful ideas on how to fix this so that my sims will drink the hot chocolate they make?

On to the "other concerns"....

Does anyone know what all of the new career rewards do? Especially the one for Journalism. It's nice looking and all, but what's it do??? Does it do anything other then take up a slot on a surface? Does it have a Comfort number, and if so what is it? I never see the Comfort rating for any of the custom content, but it's twice as annoying when Maxis doesn't show any information on their own items at all.

Is there any way to plant anything other then tomatoes when using the gardening soil? My Sim is just starting out with the whole gardening thing, so I am wondering if that is the reason that the tomatoes are the only option.

When will my Sims be able to actually gather the fruits/veggies they plant/grow? Just wondering since it's about the equivalent of a month in real time for the full life cycle of a Sim, so why does it take so long to harvest plants?

The Composter (or whatever it's called). I only get one primary interaction which is to check the level of compost, and when there is trash/garbage/whatever on the floor I get the option to Gather compostable materials. Does it do anything else and if so, what does it do and how do I make it do "it"?

The lightening rod and the weather vane. Do those things do anything, or are they just there for decoration and nothing more?

How do you get the wishing well? I read in an faq that you get one whenever you join the gardening club and an additional one every time you get re-evaluated. My Sim is a member, but I see no wishing well either on the lot (residential) nor in the inventory. How else can I get one?

I'd also like to direct a little attention here because this is also an issue with me (my Sim's daughter went to college AWAY FROM THE FAMILY DOG and all of her wants and fears are nothing but ones that relate to the family dog). It's extremely annoying.

That's pretty much all that I can think of/remember that I've been wanting to ask around about. I'm sure that the next time I play with my main family again I'll find more things that I wanted to bring up, and when/if that happens I'll update the list. As real solutions are presented/found by you/myself I'll also make the appropriate editings.

Note to moderators: If this isn't in the right place, please move it where it belongs, but do not delete this thread. Thank you.
4  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Resolved: Names For Needs Are Missing on: March 25, 2007, 02:20:06 am
Just as the thread title says, the names for all of my needs have suddenly vanished. the meters are still there, but they do not have a name next to them, nor does anything pop up when I mouse over them. I just sent my Sim's daughter to college, and things were running just fine. I took her to get some clothes and poke around the campus for a while, and just as she was going to the coffee shop my game crashed. I started it back up again, and she was dropped off at her dorm, so I pick her up there and took her back to her shopping and fun time on the campus to meet some people. I look at the needs tab and though the meters are there their names are not. I've tried closing and opening the tabs, going from one lot to another, and back to the dorm. Nothing. Can anyone offer me some help please? Playing is going to be really confusing for me without the names, and I don't want to have to keep using the maxmotives cheat every time. Any constructive help would be much appreciated. Thank you.
5  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / A few problems, could use some serious help on: February 14, 2007, 08:03:05 pm
Moderators/Administrators, if this is not in the right area, please move it to its proper section (just send me a PM so I can find it again please).

I have a few problems here, did a word search on here trying to find posts/threads similar to these problems, and came to results that were closed threads or no results at all. Here goes...

     There is a thread similar to the first problem I'll address which can be located only I am having this issue with clothing, hair, and accessories. As an example, with the clothing, I have the proper mesh for "outfit A" (ex.) and it will display properly in the bodyshop, but the thumbnail will be a basic Maxis outfit, like a gray suit for males or a red long sleeve top w/white capris for females. Though with the female outfits, it does not show up at all as it should and shows what's in the thumbnail. (I hope they're called thumbnails, I just call them icons or previews). I tried to delete the stuff that beosboxboy suggested, but, this brings me to my most recent problem which I will now address.

     I tried to start up my game and HAL (I've named my computer, yes, I'm a nerd, HAL, after the HAL from 2001: A Space Odyssey) gives me an error saying to make sure the disk is in the drive and to retry. The disk is in the drive, yes, the right one, and it still won't play. Here's a little info, so you have some knowledge on what's what over here. I have, in relation to the game, the Base game Sims 2, University, Nightlife, Open for Business, Family Fun Stuff, Glamour Life Stuff, Pets, Happy Holiday Stuff. Eagerly awaiting Seasons. In relation to my computer, the stats are as follows;
Operating System: Windows 2000 Professional (5.0, Build 2195) Service Pack 4
Processor: AMD Athlon(TM) XP 1600+, ~1.1GHz
Memory: 1280MB RAM
DirectX Version: DirectX 9.0c
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce FX 5600 Ultra w/128.0 MB RAM
Sound Card: Sound Blaster Audigy
The DVD-RW's speed is something I'll have to get back to you on, but I can at least tell you that meets the requirements to run the game flawlessly.

So, what I'm basically asking is can anyone help me to figure out how come my game won't play, when, before, it has been running just fine all this time and only started this mess up today when I tried to use the suggestions for the first problem to see if that would fix it. I'm not sure what the deal is. Everything is in the right place and logically it should be running without a hitch. And before any conclusions are jumped to right away, it's not Pets because I've been running Pets since I got it the first week it hit the shelves and I've never had any trouble from it. It actually improved the game and how it runs. In any case, if anyone has any knowledge about this and would be kind enough to help I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thank you.
