16  Simmers' Paradise / Apartment Life Help / Is this right? on: September 27, 2008, 11:08:05 am
Best method is to back up the empty apartment building, then "changelotzoning residential", save and exit, re enter to build, and stick to the rules for apartment building.
"changelotzoning apartmentbase" when done.
If built right, it should throw no errors.

Have the Sims2 Employment agency screen them and disallow sloppy Sims, mean sims, and only accept butlers and nannys, with High cleaning and cookong skills.

Mod them.

Service Sims have been borked skill and personality wise since the game came out. I've even seen NPC Chefs in restaurants with no cooking skill, when I have used "make selectable" on them.

An alternate or addon would be nice.
I had been waiting for SimPE to come out to go hunting up the bhav, rather than uninstalling AL just to hunt it up and go poking about in it.

Once agan, kudos on a job well done.

Nice work, Squinge. Thanks.

Does it also cover "hunt bugs"?
21  Simmers' Paradise / Apartment Life Help / AL Sectional Not Working on: September 23, 2008, 10:51:30 am
Is this the same sectional sofa which came in Nightlife?
I've had no probs with the ones from Nightlife.
22  Simmers' Paradise / Apartment Life Help / Apartment help... on: September 23, 2008, 10:35:32 am
try "changelotzoning residential" and hope it works.
Do this from the apartment base, meaning move any sims living there out of the building, before trrying this.

It is recommended saving the base into the bin or exporting it to a file before converting to apartments.Saving to a file keeps you a copy you can restore from outside the game.
23  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Overcharging maid on: September 23, 2008, 09:43:08 am
I was using Servo in past to avoid the maids/nannies.
The Spectral Assistant is also great for cleanup.
24  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Is anyone else having weird issues with Clean Installer? on: September 23, 2008, 09:10:43 am
I've been placing CC into subfolders which are named to identify what the content is for. It makes finding problem files a bit easier, and removal of unneeded material a snap.

I only allow the house materials to go one folder deep for each house.
I remember probs with it not showing for those when I tried a deeper heirarchy.

I hated slogging through all the greeked names in past trying to find something.

Never had problems with Clean Installer itself. (Crosses fingers for good luck)
Good luck to you.
25  Simmers' Paradise / Sims 2 Apartment Life Chat / Apartment Life- EP 8? on: September 23, 2008, 08:59:03 am
It works in apt lots. One of the EAxis apts has the "secret door" in it.
Just needs to be set up before conversion to apartmentbase lot type.
26  Simmers' Paradise / Sims 2 Apartment Life Chat / Annoying problem with Apartments on: September 23, 2008, 08:49:14 am
Considering each family lives in a seperate apartmentsublot cloned from the apartmentbase I do not see an easy solution to it.
Each "sublot" is a seperate clone of the main lot but not visible on the nhood map.
27  Simmers' Paradise / Apartment Life Help / Mailbox doesn't change when re-zoned to apartment on: September 20, 2008, 09:04:15 am
An option one can consider is a tool to go through CC to look for mailboxes.
A bit of slogging about there, but it can preserve lots and such.
Alternative is to "repackage" those lots and glean them up by removing any mail boxes from the listing and saving it clean.

I refer to the Clean Installer here.
28  Simmers' Paradise / Apartment Life Help / What am I doing wrong ? on: September 20, 2008, 08:32:02 am
I recommend hitting the delete button on such an error. I have seen them before, and in other EPs prior to this one.

Usually it would show for me when loading the lot though, after an EP installation.
29  Simmers' Paradise / Sims 2 Apartment Life Chat / Few things bugging me about AL on: September 20, 2008, 07:11:04 am
TO fix BookhandBoy, run "boolprop testingcheatsenabled true", shift click the kid, force an error, click delete. Save and exit the lot.
He should appear by the mailbox without the books in hand.

I've had this happen with the "spray paint" for the car before this EP came out, and with the wand in this  EP.

This fixed my sims.
30  Simmers' Paradise / Sims 2 Apartment Life Chat / Where is the witch skin? on: September 20, 2008, 06:39:13 am
I made a Gray Witch by having another Gray witch Cast Magus Mutation on a sim. Oddly the sim target had no memory of becoming a witch.
