Ach. Read a thing about a way to provoke death that I hadn't known about and now I can't find it. It's probably in Sims 4 GD within the last... week? Two weeks? Sound familiar at all?

      Aha! Found it. It was a way to get the sauna death to be a sure thing, but I guess I didn't do it right :/

    You may or may not remember me and may even have saw my previous messages to friends and post on my wall about this but I will be getting a new laptop in May or so. It will have an Intel Core i7 7700HQ 2.8GHz CPU and 16GB of DDR4 RAM and 1TB 7200rpm HDD, and 128GB SSD with a 17.3 inch screen and finally a dedicated GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB.

    I am excited to be getting this laptop and it will transform my entire PC gaming experience into something way more smoother and funner.

    My sims game was working fine but my toddlers were very hungry so I did the "cheat need" cheat. My sims job ends at 5:00pm but now in game it is 1:37am and she is still not home and my toddlers are stuck at daycare but I still hear my toddlers making noise. If I try to pause the game or go into ultra speed it just stays in normal speed. Also, before I sent my sim to work I had her boyfriend over and he is still at the house frozen. If anyone could help me that would be amazing. Thanks in advance.

  • Listening to the Langley Schools Music Project ( <3 ) and thinking how if we do ever get bands in the Sims 4 - where Sims can play music together - what I most want now is children's school instruments and vocals and mine will be Aliens and I'll just imagine they're singing Calling Occupants too.

      That's such a good idea! Bands would be awesome.
  • A really great way that Sims in apartments could annoy the neighbours would be to buy a grandfather clock that makes Big Ben noises every 15 minutes, then put it against the adjoining wall, turn the volume to REALLY LOUD, and have it run 7 minutes fast so it's not even bonging at a useful time.

    And yes, there will probably be banging on the door.

      Cold rain. I went out to dinner, all of two blocks. It felt too far. :/

      Also lol. I grew up with Buffalo TV and Buffalo was like that ALWAYS. It was more Canada than Canada.

      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:
      http://forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/comment/14040113/#Comment_14040113

      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!
    • DaniHopkins

      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).
