1  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / SOLVED: How do I get the charcoal off my face?? on: November 12, 2014, 04:42:55 pm
Here's a silly question (just cuz I'm a Sims vet but haven't played in forever)...

I just had my Sim sit down to repair the computer (my bad considering she's low on the mechanical skill). The dang thing exploded onto her face and nothing will clean it off (I assumed a bath or shower would, if not, to delete her, save, and have her brand-new at the mailbox). How do I get her face UN-charcoaled?

Problem solved. Used the Insimenator to take care of it. Probably could have done it using the mirror and then changing Full Face Makeup and then go back to normal face. Anyone else can use this in case they have the same problem.

Hey, thank you, Raven. This is very helpful.
3  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / The Correct Order of Operations (Expansions) on: July 12, 2013, 06:42:51 pm
Hey, everyone.

I'm hoping this isn't a constant repeat of what other Simmers have written...

My friend just ordered The Sims 2 Deluxe (The Sims 2 / Nightlife). I noticed when looking through the expansions that University is actually the second Sims 2 expansion and Nightlife is the 3rd expansion.

One, why is the deluxe pack the first and third expansion as opposed to the first and second?

Second, is my friend able to add University after downloading the deluxe she just ordered? I'm pretty sure that when I had read a similar post that someone said it is not like Sims 1 where you had to download the expansions in order, otherwise you'd screw up the game. The Sims 2 is a little more flexible when it comes to downloading expansions. I'm hoping this is true...

Hey, thanks.

I tried looking for that post, but had no idea how to find it. Guess I probably should have entered "Build Tool". Sorry for being one, lol.

I have a problem I had years ago. I was building a wall and now somehow my dang tool is stuck there. It won't budge and it shows when I put the game into "Sim" mode.

I can't remember how I got rid of it before. I have tried going over it with a build tool but it simply won't go away.

Help?

Sorry I was so vague. I have had the InSimenator for so long, I forget it is still new to some people. Thanks, caffinated.joy for filling in the blanks.

Thanks, guys, for the advice. I'll first try to move them out and have them enter a new lot and see if this trick works. If it doesn't, I'll disable the CC at the start up menu. If disabling CC works, I'll have to figure out something new for the family themselves, seeing Darren is the only messed up Sim I have in the neighborhood.

I'll see what works and report back later.

<Many frustrating minutes later>

I would have double-posted but it gets on other people's nerves. Just wanted to let you all know the results.

I tried moving them out of the lot and into a Sims 2 original lot (no CC of any kind). He still is having interaction problems. I even took extra measure in using the "face lift" / "makeover cheat" from InSiminator just to be sure (this has sometimes worked in the past w Sims). Didn't work.

Then I went back to the beginning and tried disabling my CC from the get-go in the start-up menu. Nothing changed. I have no idea now, lol. But any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm just about to replace my old Darren with a clone. Really would like to avoid that if I can, though.


P.S. I know what caffinated.joy suggested is absolutely right. I should go in and do that with the folders but I have no way of even reaching my folders. I currently have no desktop because I believe my RAM is sucky right now. I have to get to the game through the backdoor (the little window that comes up when you hit Cntl+Alt+Shift+Delete). I really probably shouldn't be using my computer at all in this state, but I'm addicted to this game and needed a little fun.

Of course you can always use the InSimenator Resurrection cheat.
9  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Re: Frozen Sim on: January 07, 2013, 02:47:48 pm
I kind of can't do that. Computer is special. Long story.

Is there possibly anything else I can try? Like I said, all my other families and lots in the game work fine.
10  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Frozen Sim on: January 07, 2013, 12:41:46 pm
Now I'm having a glitch with my Sim. Darren Dreamer just won't interact with his kids! He used to not interact with anything or anyone.

At first, I tried deleting him. Nothing. I also tried to move his whole family out of the house and back in again. He finally started to interact with his wife, but his wife won't interact with him. I'll have him do menial jobs like picking up the phone or washing a dish, but he won't interact with any nursery items or his toddler boys. All the nursery items I've never had issues with with any other Sim.

I know it's not a CC issue. All my other lots with the same CC are playable and working just fine.

The interesting part is that his Plum Bob keeps flickering in and out when I select him. I'm afraid to delete that, though, because I've never done it and I'm not sure if it will come back like when you delete a Sim.

Any suggestions?
11  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Custom Greek House Issues... on: December 26, 2012, 02:25:41 pm
I just recently added a new dorm to my campus. I already typed in the "change lot zones" cheat so it knows that it's a dorm. But when I have one of my currently residing students to call to apply for a charter, they aren't able to. I know you can custom create a Greek House from scratch and have the "Apply for Charter" option available because I have done it before, so why can't I do it now? I did create my first GH awhile ago so I might be missing a step?

ANSWER: Just remembered in order to apply for a charter, I must be applying for one in a residential house, NOT a dorm. I'm a dork. So, guys, if any of you are wondering how to do this, just lettin you know it's an easy fix!

All right. Back in business!

Actually just used the "stay at move out" shrub, saved, moved all the boys out of the frat house, then immediately moved them all back in and for some reason, that did the trick! Have to reset the frat house rep, but that's not too horrible of a chore. Just glad they're up and running again!

Thanks for your feedback.

Okay, now we're just being telepathetic, lol. I just decided to do that to give it a try.

I wish it were that simple to do a mods check but I can't get to my files. I don't even have a visible desktop... long story.

But we'll see if this works.

Here's hopin...

No, I haven't done anything in Sim PE for a couple of years.

Also, I was playing with this lot for most of yesterday and a short time today before it went crazy on me and no other lots with CC are doing that, so I'm not sure what exactly is going on.

Great pic of Castiel, by the way!

Usually when a Sim freezes unexpectedly, the norm would be to delete the Sim, save before leaving for the neighborhood, and then coming back to find the same Sim, except everything works fine. No more bugs.

This time, the freeze happened to everyone in the house, plus guests. The funny thing is, though, is that the Sims are the only ones who are frozen. All other animations (music, the fountain, T.V. etc) are working just fine. I have never had issues with this lot before, but now all 4 of the household Sims are frozen. I tried to delete them and come back to the lot, but it doesn't help things. The time is stuck, too. No time is moving forward at all. On top of that, one of the Sims is out visiting the campus and won't return, of course.

When I go to other lots and invite the boys over from the frozen lot, everything works fine. You wouldn't know there was a problem!

It's definitely the lot. So, any suggestions?

P.S. I haven't downloaded any CC for a year so I know that's not the problem.
