Lol. Guess who forgot to reenable her mods and didn't even notice for a good while? Shouldn't have too many lasting consequences...

      *Insert an image of a bland sim sitting an empty room that IS NOT on fire. The sim looks blank to the side and thinks "This is fine."*



      *The room also has no door.*

    Here's hoping your potholes aren't this deep.

      My street needs paving so badly. But not THAT badly.

      Try getting some street kids to draw...umm...rude things...on them. That sometimes at least gets patchwork done.

    Just a question, I never understood how the save file works in the sims 4. When I look in the saves folder, all I see is a bunch of versions and slot numbers. I have no idea what is what. When I load the game (under the load game option) I have three choices: Auto Save, "Funk and Grind" and "Building and CC testing". The building and testing is where I play around trying to learn how to build and if I wanted to test any CC, which I haven't put any back in my game. The Funk and Grind is the game that I am playing with the issue. How do I zip the file? Do I need to just need to Zip the entire sims 4 under my documents? or just the save file with all the slots and versions? And how do you upload it?

      Heya! Yeah, that drives me Around The Bend, to put it nicely. I would just zip up the whole Saves folder, and if you do submit it to QA, it sounds like it'll be pretty easy for them to identify which save is the issue.

      I was just looking for upload instructions and found that they often like a few other files added to the zip:

      I use Dropbox for my filesharing. After you open an account there, you can just drag the file onto the interface and it will upload. Then hover over the filename on Dropbox, click Share, and pick Copy Link. You can save that in a text file or something, or PM it to SimGuruNick and SimGuruArvin with a link to the topic.

      I hope they can figure this one out! It seems to have multiple causes for different people, but maybe it's one underlying thing that just ends up looking different in different game patterns or something. Sims is complicated stuff sometimes.

      I went to a goose-infested university. They have had actual "do not go to that part of campus" right now warnings. Those things are *almost* as mean as swans. Almost.

      Hahaha! Are the geese there as ornery as the ones here in the southern US? They can be really scary sometimes here during mating season, chasing and attacking just because you happen to be having a quiet snack in their neck of the park... LOL ;-)

      My university was known for their ducks. Not as scary as geese but if you had a subway bag, be prepared to have a hoard of 50 or more following you. They knewwww.

    Okay. I have a quick question and I have looked EVERYWHERE for an answer before posting but I have to know!!!!!!!!! I recently made 72 Sims in The Sims 4 with a plan to make them all students at Hogwarts but I have no way to add more families to the same household! PLEASE HELP!!! I AM SO DESPERATE!!! Creating all those sims...finding a decent Hogwarts... IT WAS MORE THAN 30 HOURS OF WORK I DON'T WANT WASTED!!!...and I was going to cite my sources on my BlogSpot page so everyone could have access...I know about the full house mod but I REALLY don't want to add them all by name 64 times so if I try to place Hogwarts and then delete their houses? Should I try the Go To School Mod? Does that have an option to keep them at the school more then a day? Is their a better mod that I could be using? I NEED YOUR HELP!!! Also, I would be ever so grateful for any insights!

      You need a mod for that. MC Command Center (on Tumblr - search for DeaderpoolMC I think) or there's a mod on Mod the Sims. I have never heard of anyone trying to put more than 10-12 Sims in a household. I wouldn't try it if you don't have a serious gaming computer. I don't know anything about the workings of the Go to School mod. Sorry - try asking in the Sims 4 Discussion area.

      Thanks! =) I'll look into that and once I have it up and running, I'll be sure to share some pics!

      I spent 2 hours adding them all manually with The Full House Mod since MC Command Center didn't have an option for merging big households. My laptop held up and didn't crash! =) I saved and fixed my graphic settings to compensate the rendering and then saved again. It looks great! I can't wait to take some screen shots and share them! I'll post everything on my BlogSpot and post a features video on my YouTube so everyone can see what they download! I'm so excited! I wanted to do this since The Sims 3 but I had so much going on that it was so laggy and took forever to complete anything if it didn't crash first! =( Anyways, thanks for the MC mod. I forgot that I planned to have a school full of teens and the pregnancy menu will be a huge help in keeping roll call from expanding further. 72 is plenty! -_- Pics soon to come!

      First of all, that's astounding - well done creating that many sims at once. I'm just starting with Sims and have managed to create only a portion of that many in a couple of weeks time. Secondly? Thanks for posting this - I had a similar question but @luthienrising answered my question with his response, too. Cheers to both of ya! Thanks! Hope you've gotten yours solved now! :-)
  • Sims made this guy's real life better by showing him what's possible. (Sims 3, but the story he tells could have happened with any of the versions.) I love this.

      Enjoyed this link. This is what is currently happening to me...in it's own way (getting back to life after a lot of death and loss). I've only just joined the forums, but I've been learning Sims 4 for the past month or so, after not having played since the Sims 2 (before my son was born). It's really made a difference for me. People may think it's silly but it's really helped me to start to view my own life in a different and better way now, coming up on the one year anniversary of losing both my parents (within months of each other).

    @luthienrising : Can you help?
    Please! I can not for the life of me get Spandrels to appear or work and the other decorative elements are showing up monster size; I would like to get them in normal size. I got one corner of a house to accept a frieze and on every other wall it said it needs a taller wall or monster size is applied if I raise the wall height to a ridiculous size. The walls were all standard size and no different than the one that allowed the application. I have been working on this problem for many hours (Days now!) and even with instructions on Simsvip.com, nothing seems to work for me. I see spandrels all over other people's creations and I just can not get them! Any advise would be gratefully received. 2e4i4ci.jpg

      I don't know much about build stuff. Check with @bryonyrae

      You could try building with just your base game installed to see if it's bug, assuming you have no cc or mods installed, and after repairing your game.

      I have the base game only and I'm not having any of these issues when I build.

      Ok, by my official evaluation, you are mildly perturbing, but not enough to join the League of "OH MY GOD! WHAT THE [insert favorite expletive here] IS THAT?!" Scary Individuals. Here's the reapplication form; I'll need that in triplicate by Spring Break.

    You helped me a few months back with some game play issues. Just wondering if you have any other ideas I can try. My problem is that the screen turns black when I try to buy/build something. You suggested moving the Mod folder. I did that and it worked, but now it is happening again. What else could I do?

      That's genius. I saw someone say the other day that "Roll up" is Canadian for "Pull at with your teeth", which seems about right.
