1  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / accelerated skill gain while jumping rope... children on: February 01, 2010, 05:38:24 pm
I just came across this and was wondering if anybody has seen it before... I had a child with fitness hobby jump rope to increase body points. But after the fifth point, I set her to jump again and suddenly she gained 5 points one after the other in a matter of seconds. I received a notice after each point, that she had increased her fitness level and that she had finally maxed the skill. I had never come across this sudden increase. Any ideas abt what happened? I ended saving and keeping the change as nothing else out of the ordinary came up, but was completely taken by surprise...
Mari huh
edit: Sorry, forgot to add I have all exp. except Pets.
2  Simmers' Paradise / Where Can I Find...? / A Ricky Martin sim? on: October 05, 2009, 06:00:51 pm
I've gone to other sites after I checked here, but he's either hiding or I just couldn't see him anywhere.
Can anybody help? I could have sworn I saw one somewhere...
TIA  Cheesy

Edit oct 6: Thank you for that one, I was hoping for a closer resemblance though...
3  Simmers' Paradise / Apartment Life Help / How do I modify an existing apartment building? on: July 28, 2009, 05:57:03 pm
This is driving me crazy, one family that's living on the penthouse keeps using furniture (tables and chairs) located on the first floor. So they're reading the paper, I cancel the action, and the table or end table they choose to put the paper on is (you guessed it!) on the first floor! And this action will not let itself be cancelled. The sim will walk all the way down to the first floor and I'm pulling my hair out!
So I'm not looking to modify anything inside the apartments but the common area with sofas, dining room, exercise machines, etc. I tried entering from the (build) neighborhood view, but it won't let me. The only choice it gave me was to choose a family to play.
Is there anything I can try, that won't involve moving this family out and back in? I'd like to keep the neighbors provided (there's romance in the air... Grin )
Thanks in advance,
Mari
4  Simmers' Paradise / Apartment Life Help / A question, really... on: July 15, 2009, 05:23:47 pm
I'm wondering if it is something inherent to the AL expansion, or to apartment lots specifically...
Ok, I have a romance sim move into an apartment lot (a trailer park lot that comes with AL) and let him loose among the female tenants there. But they all seem fine sharing him, even when he kisses and flirts with each one in turn (with the others standing there and watching) It's freaky since I haven't turned off jealousy for the lot. To tell the truth it was to be an experiment on how many angry women he could handle. But no one is angry! Well, except for a teenager that happened to walk by, he romanced and woohooed with her, and then she caught him with another girl and let him have it. Still then, none of his other conquests were phased at all.
It's so weird! Is this normal?

5  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Weird comm lot crashing... when sims talk to each other! on: June 03, 2009, 01:04:47 pm
Ok, my sims can go to community lots and can purchase stuff, but the moment they try to talk to someone else, the whole thing goes poof! I have no idea what could be causing this. I tried waiting for some other sim to talk to them but sometimes it works and the game goes on as it should, and sometimes it doesn't. It's worse when my controllable sim initiates contact. The flirt interaction (check sim out or whistle) or even scope room, don't seem to trigger it though. Weird and annoying as .....!
I have all expansions except Pets and AL (do have M&G) and have used Inteen for a long while without any problems, I have added the sim blender and summoner cat, but that was a while ago too. I did add computer fixes (to get rid of the computer hogging thing). I'll have to go check anything else that might be causing this, though the main ones I've mentioned already...
If you have any ideas you are sure welcome!
TIA

6  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Question: uni dormies using beds? on: May 22, 2009, 04:16:19 pm
It's something that's been happening lately in my game... I change the beds of my uni sims (usually for double beds) but lately the dormies seem to be using them to sleep, something I never saw them do before. And I use maxis beds, not custom so it's not that I'm using cc beds or anything.
Has anybody seen that before? I tried searching this topic to see if somebody had posted, but no luck... I keep wondering what could cause this. I've added some cc, but no hacks lately. I have all exps except Pets and AL (but I do have M & G), and I use Inteen.

7  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Annoying visitors... What to do? on: March 10, 2009, 04:09:27 pm
Ok, so I'm playing Veronaville after installing FT and M&G... And I am starting on the Consort and Regan Capp lot, but now everybody that they've ever met is calling on them at every hour of the day or night! And I mean any hour... 1 am, 7 am, etc. It is officially the most annoying thing I've ever encountered so far. And they're so sneaky about it, they keep waking the whole household (2 adults,3 kids). I'm just deleting them as they come with moveobjects on, but I can't play on fast forward cause I need to keep watch for the nosy neighbors.
Any suggestions?
Mari  huh
8  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / A question about a Desiderata family... The Aspir on: February 16, 2009, 12:39:21 pm
Hi,
I mentioned this in another thread, but it's getting very annoying. I began playing the Desiderata with the Una character and it seems her dad lives in the Aspir lot. I made her call dad, and at that point the game crashed. Ok, so I restarted and tried directly with the Aspir... and crashed again. So I moved them out of the lot, and tried moving them back but crashed again. I tried moving them to a new lot (downloaded one) and crashed again. A pattern was emerging... angry
I didn't know if it would work but tried summoning them one at a time from the Una lot. It was working... but when the dad's turn came, the game crashed...
What would be causing this? Should I let them stay in Sim Limbo forever to avoid crashing the game? I'd try to delete them but since they have family still in town I don't know what that would do...  huh
TIA

9  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Question about Mansions & Gardens... on: February 13, 2009, 06:54:44 pm
Ok, now I'm confused...I had up to bon voyage, and at that point installed Mansions & Gardens...  (the game behaved like I was adding a new EP not an SP). Then I installed Free Time... so now I want to know if I upgrade mods/hacks to FT or AL. At first I upgraded for FT, but the way the game is behaving, I'm guessing AL mods might be needed instead.

For example, I installed the Ottomas family in Desiderata and played like for a week in game but nobody aged at all. Also one family there, the Aspir, makes my game crash.

So I come to the masters  Praise for their advice... please!!
TIA

btw. Happy Valentine's everyone! Heart
10  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Knowledge aspiration sims... all criminals on: January 19, 2009, 03:40:35 pm
Is there a reason why all my newly created knowledge sims are aspiring to become Mastermind Criminals? I like having knowledge sims around, I consider myself knowledge aspiration too Smiley, but not if they all want to be criminals... I have yet to install Insim since I believe my computer is being stretched to the limit as it is, but I'd like to have more options.
Any ideas? huh

11  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Bus on University grounds on: December 18, 2008, 01:03:20 pm
Ok, two sims are about to finish their senior 'year', but since I began playing the lot, the bus keeps trying to pick them up for school!!!! Have a bunch of pictures but can't show 'cause I'm at work  tongue And after, a message comes up that they've lost a grade by missing school that day!!! It even tried to pick them up after they finished the last final and had the 72 hr countdown, so I had to rush them out before they kept losing gpa points. huh
Anybody seen this before? (they were living in a dorm lot, by the way they're Mercutio and Puck)
Great work on the move, by the way, I was getting antsy looking for the site.

12  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Yikes! the nanny stole my baby!! on: July 02, 2008, 06:21:16 pm
What the...!! Mom goes to work and leaves the nanny in charge. When mom returns, the nanny is feeding the baby, she stops, puts the baby down and walks away. As mom goes to pick the baby up, the nanny picks it up first and walks to the car waiting outside, gets in and leaves WITH THE BABY!! The baby's picture is gone from the household menu.
I panicked and finally didn't save, but lost all the time she spent pregnant, etc.
What gives? Has this happened to anybody else?:sad4:

13  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Teen stuck helping with age trans. on: March 25, 2008, 01:56:22 pm
Hi, If anybody can help I'll be very grateful!

I'm getting tired of this. Every time I have a baby turning toddler, it seems to draw the teens in the house, even if they're not siblings, and not so much the adults (parents of the baby). Yesterday, it happened again (with the Grunt family), but mom was called as well as the teen, so I went and cancelled the teen to let the mom hold the baby. But the teen was stuck in front of the crib, and would not budge for anything.

I waited to see whether it would snap out on its own. The baby would still be drawing people near, even the stuck teen, but nothing would help. I waited for the need bars of the teen to get red (all of them), still nothing. Finally I decided to quit and enter again, but forgot not to save. So I ended up going into Uni panel and get the teen out of the lot that way. I still don't know what will happen when I go back into the lot.

Sorry for the long tale, I'm just so puzzled by it, don't know why it keeps happening.
TIA
Mari:sad3:
