1  Simmers' Paradise / Where Can I Find...? / Aubrey Sim on: June 10, 2019, 02:41:25 pm
I was wondering if anyone had a copy of Senkotwiik's Sim, Aubrey from the story here called "Confessions of Ashley" and "Confessions of Aubrey". Their site's been down for awhile and I'm not sure they still play the Sims 2.

After my Sims go on maternity leave, their job instantly goes to career level 10. huh I'm not sure but was there a mod to fix this?
For which game is this happening and what EPs/SPs, etc, do you have besides the base game, if any?

If this is happening in Sims2, then it is not normal or default behavior and you probably have some mod which is causing it to happen. Remove your mods and see if it recurs. Then you can slowly add your mods back in and test (quit without saving so you can keep testing) until you determine which mod is the culprit.

I cannot speak to other versions of Sims games.

Turns out I had a duplicate mod file in the folder I moved over from an old computer. Just getting back into using CC again after about 5 years and to say I'm rusty would be an understatement.  Cheesy

Awesome, thank you very much.  YAY

I'm playing Meetmetotheriver's cleaned Pleasantview and I can't find Skip's gravestone. Is there some way I could get it back?
6  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Discussion / Re: Who is nervous's actual father on: December 15, 2017, 01:40:56 pm
i would like to know because i'm super confused is the reaper his father  huh
(I have something to contribute so I hope you don't mind me posting in an older thread)
The Grim Reaper is his biological dad. Since Grim doesn't actually have a face, I think it's a clone of Nervous' because when I use the "Grimpregnation" option on Insimenator all of the babies that are born look exactly like Nervous (light skin, brown eyes, black hair) regardless of who mothered them.
7  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Discussion / Re: Wedding ring stuck on unmarried Sims' finger on: December 15, 2017, 01:37:12 pm
It sounds as though the game thinks that your Sim is still married to their former spouse. If that's the case, then removing the married flag should result in removal of the wedding ring.

If you use the Insimenator, I believe its relations changer allows you to set marital status. Or you may be able to use SimPE to edit the Sim Relations between the Sim and their former spouse to be unmarried.

Thanks! I opened their relationship pannels in Sim PE and the "family" boxes were still ticked. I fixed it so hopefully once I go in and reset her it'll be gone. I appreciate the help!  Grin

I have a sim and they're no longer married but their wedding band is still on their finger. I've tried boolpropping and resetting them but it's still there. Does anyone know how I can get it off please?
9  Simmers' Paradise / Where Can I Find...? / A put up for adoption mod on: November 13, 2017, 02:58:21 pm
I was wondering if there was such a mod that would allow Sims to put unplanned children up for adoption and give them a memory of doing so? I think there was a memory replacement at one point.

What is the exact model of your laptop?
I'm pretty sure it's this one. I've also tried downloading the Microsoft Direct X tool and the June 2010 Microsoft files with the Direct X set up and it didn't fix the problem.
11  Simmers' Paradise / Sims 2 FAQ's / Sims 2 won't run full screen on my S/O's laptop (HP) on: September 30, 2017, 05:43:07 pm
My SO wants Sims 2 on their laptop (which I have done before, they had to get a new hard drive recently) so I downloaded the Ultimate Collection from my Origin account. I get a "No directx 9.0 compatible drivers found" error. They have Directx 12 on an Intel e5800 graphics card. I have tried:

- Downloading and running the dxwebsetup from Microsoft and letting it install and then restarting.

- Using the Graphics rules maker which literally did absolutely nothing

- Starting the game from the most recent game .exe in Windows XP service pack 3 compatibility mode and then service pack 2 compatibility mode

- Following the leefish guide to replace graphics rules with hers in Config and CSConfig in my most recent game's TSdata folder

The only way to get it to start is to put -w at the end.  They're on the cusp of being legally blind and I am legally blind so it's very hard to play this way.

Please help me out!

A few typos were introduced with EPs, so it's possible a small fix to the game by EA may have caused other bugs (isn't that just thypical?)

If the "tickle" interaction doesn't work, it's possible you've got a mod/hack that interferes. Have you tried playing without CC to see if the interaction becomes available again?

Not sur eif the patches will help, but might be worth a try.

Some interactions may not be available for townies, and sims may need to be part of the household to do them. I've noticed that for a few other interactions. It's also possible the sims must be part of the family or household to do some of the interactions. As long as it's available and working fine for household members, that might be the case. I haven't tried the tickle interaction for townies, though.

My game is entirely vanilla, not even bodyshop CC and this still happens. I think you may be right. I'll try patching when I get off work and see if that fixes things. If not then c'est la vie haha.

"Give smartmilk to [Toddler name]" will make the sim take a bottle and give it to said toddler. "Dispose" will make the sim clean up the smartmilk so it's ready for a new batch.

If you're confused as to why the pie menu says "to[name] instead of "to [name]" it's probably a typo, and there are plenty to go around, probably in most of the languages. I've noticed one in Bodyshop where they've left out a letter in the word "contents" (in my language) in the box that pops up every time I import a project to game. I've learned to live with it, but you can get fixes for some of these typos. Not sure if there's one for the smartmilk.

Really? I was worried maybe it was a sign the game didn't install right. That being said there is a fairly good chance it's been there for the past nearly a decade and I never noticed until now.  tongue I have up to Bon Voyage installed and the tickle interaction still won't work for children that aren't part of the household despite sharing a mutual 100/100 relationship and best friend flags. It just drops from the tickler's queue. I selected the townie child and the interaction to be tickled never even was added to his. I went to Mod The Sims and downloaded all the patches so once I finish installing my last three games I'll see if that does the trick and I'll update here after patching.

After all these years, I've never noticed the "MilkTo" typo. And I didn't notice it in Hammie's picture either. THANKS Theraven! Hopefully that's all the problem Hammie was/is having with it. I was thinking they were experiencing an actual problem with the Smart Milk itself.

Me too until now. I'm just hoping I was terribly unobservant as a teenager lol.

Thanks for the help and feedback. I've been having a hard time getting any help for Sims 2 these days.

Do these problems happen only in one household? Or all households? How about in new households created after your new install?

Is Amin not a toddler? If not, then does it only happen with Amin or with other non-toddlers as well? If only with Amin, then my guess would be that somehow the game doesn't know what Amin's proper age is and perhaps if you force an error on him, you might clear up the issue. Is Amin a Sim from before or newly created since your new install?

As far as the missing tickle interaction goes, I'm at a loss since you say your game is mod free. Is the interaction available with new families created since the install? If it only occurs with families that you had before, once again I would suspect something happened prior to your new install which may have corrupted the character files of the Sims.


Amin is a random toddler I put into the household. This pie menu happens in all households. I have a few more expansions to install and then I'll check if the tickle bug is still there. The installations weren't ever interrupted and the path goes to the right place.

This has been happening for a couple years. At first I thought it was because I had the European version of Open for Business, so I bought the US copy since all of my other games were US copies. I'm also having the issue where children can't use the tickle interaction unless they both share the same household even with a mutual 100/100 relationship. I just installed all of my games again and I have all game and expansion packs including Double Deluxe so the game is totally download and mod free. I'm also running on Windows 10 with no other problems.

Thanks for any help!  huh
