1  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Re: Blue thumbnails in the buy mode/build mode catalog... on: April 07, 2018, 08:41:09 pm
Do you have a link to a few of the objects that show up like this?

Blue objects usually mean missing textures, so chances are they're slaved objects and you don't have the master meshes.

Also, don't layer your subfolders too deep. I've experienced that slaved objects won't show up properly if the master mesh can't be read by the game (to me this happened to texture-slaved CAS items - they showed up with the right mesh, but skintone colored. Moving the master files a few subfolders back solved the problem).
  • Keeping to 3 layers of subfoldering as a maximum might help you avoid this issue. Also avoid special characters (using only Aa-Zz and 0-9 and -_ in file and folder names is a good habit, though spaces seem to work fine in folder names. Extra punctuation marks save from the one in ".package" can be a very bad thing and can make the game unable to read the files).

When you go back ingame to test, try to click the thumbnails to reset them (it's a combo of holding in either ctrl or shift, and clicking either the left or right mouse button - I can never remember).

Deleting the Thumbnail folder is safe, it's pretty much like deleting the cache files. The only trouble is that your game might spend a few seconds when you click next in buy/build/CAS because it generates new thumbnails.

There's probably a lamp, something on the wall, or an item on the side of the door that makes the door stay open. If you've placed items with Snapobjects they sometimes tend to overlap doors.

Removing the item will let the door close. Either that or replacing the door. Or, if possible, turn the opening of the door so the door opens the other way.

Oh, and Photobucket no longer shows pictures for everyone unless you pay for it, so you may want to find a different photo uploader. The picture did show fine at first, but now it shows the usual placeholder picture.

I fixed the picture for you. It's possible you used the wrong url or something.

Also, if you want someone to make a sim for you, they'll need a 3/4 view picture (the one you have is probably fine, though a little small), a profile picture (from the side), and a front-facing picture to get a good base.

You can read a bit more here: http://www.insimenator.org/index.php/topic,6975.0.html

Bigger pictures (up to 600x600 pixels, or links to bigger pictures) are preferable.
6  A Safe Haven / General Discussion / Re: Quick question for y'all. on: January 15, 2018, 07:38:16 am
I have the game installed on both a tower and a laptop, and it works fine on both. The tower has my full CC folder, and game-wise I mostly use it for storytelling and lengthy play sessions.

My laptop has decent enough specs for me to play the game with most settings on high, but since I ran my old laptop to death by playing the game (the specs were not good, but it did sort of manage everything up to FT), I quickly decided to cut down on the CC and play shorter sessions on the new one. It heats up quickly, and lately it's started to slow down a bit, so I don't want to risk anything. I've had some issues with the graphic card deciding to go into hiding, but other than that the game works fine on the laptop.

Whether or not it will work for you depends on the laptop specs. Make sure it meets the requirements for the game (AL/M&G has higher requirements than the older EPs) and that you have a graphic card that can handle the game.

"Thor: Ragnarok", which was very funny and entertaining.
8  Resident Creators / Squinge's Mod Help Section / Re: Q: 'Buy maternity clothes at shop' + 'Pregnant Sims Wear Any Outfit' on: October 16, 2017, 02:11:18 pm
There's one for EP7 here: http://www.simbology.com/mods/index.php?dir=inteen/jordi/&sort=date&order=desc (says it works for Inteen - but not certain to be compatible with AL/M&G)

And one for EP8 here: http://www.insimenator.org/index.php/topic,91730.0.html (technically not inteen compatible)

I've got one in my game with the date stamp 2010 - I honestly don't know where I found it, but I'm pretty sure it was made for AL/M&G. I've got a Z in front of it, "zPregnancyWearAnyOutfit", so it loads last. I've also put it directly in the Downloads folder (because all subfolders are read first). This may work with Squinge's mod if you have Inteen.

Haven't updated here in a long while, so here's a small selection of older updates (and some newer underneath)

I also have an important announcement - The site has gone through a platform change (more on that here), meaning it no longer looks the same, and/or is completely unrecognizable. I think old links still work, but just in case, here's the new link.

Maybe this can help? http://modthesims.info/d/304594
It doesn't say anything about the smart milk, but it seems to fix other typos.
11  Simmers' Paradise / Apartment Life Help / Re: Weird pie menu glitch on: August 06, 2017, 09:15:38 pm
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.

"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.
13  Simmers' Paradise / Hair / Re: Can someone please convert TheRaven's baby hair to Sims 3? on: July 08, 2017, 03:39:17 pm
Most of them are converted from TS3, and the head shape is different (meaning I've had to edit them to fit, so they may be a little squashed and changed here and there), so I do suggest using the original TS3 hairs if anyone wants to convert them, for a better fit with the TS3 baby heads. For the TS2 hairs, it's better to use the original TS2 toddler hairs as a base.

(also, please read my ToU for conversions and such - it's linked several places in my download area at MLD)
14  Simmers' Paradise / Where Can I Find...? / Re: These two clothing items for Sims 2 on: June 26, 2017, 02:03:00 pm
Where did you find the pictures? Knowing that might help in finding the clothes.
15  Simmers' Paradise / Where Can I Find...? / Re: WCIF This Sims 2 house on: June 16, 2017, 07:34:54 pm
Fixed your picture link.

On ImageShack, you can't use the URL in the address bar, because pictures won't show up. Instead, click the "get links/image sizes" button, and copy the "forum" link. You can also choose the "direct link". Copy it, and wrap it in IMG tags by marking the link and clicking the icon of a picture in the full editor (the icon to the left of the earth icon).
