      For any New members who want to get their post/point count up, the best thing that I would advise you to do is to find threads that may interest you and join in on them or go to the Off Topic section and join in on some of the word/story games over there. The posts made over in the forum section will go towards your post count whereas the posts made on your wall and the Activity Feed doesn't go towards the total post count. The only thing that you will get if you should make any post over on your wall or Activity Feed will be any Insightfuls, Likes or Awesomes as they will go towards your total points count. Hopefully creating your posts on other threads will also increase your points... :)

  • So, we can't access the cooling fan. Turns out that two of the screws for the base are stripped (missing a thread) and we don't wanna take the chance to pry it open.

    We're gonna get a cooling fan...mat...thingy...

    Something like that...and see if it helps. If it doesn't, we're gonna try to pry the bottom off very carefully and access the cooling fan.

    That's the thing is we really don't know how old this laptop is...so I'm hoping it's not going. I really don't want to get a new laptop cause I won't be the one buying it and I hate making others spend a ton of money for/on me.

    Still gonna postpone my Sims playing till we get this issue fixed. I'm not taking the chance to lose more saves.

  • I have been working on building up the DIY version of Legacy Island III from Rflong13. I have pictures of a house that I built once upon a time ago that I really loved, so I decided to recreate it. I had to change a bunch of things because I really disliked a lot of the things I did to the original house. I.E. The color scheme was too gray and bland. I have spent the last three days building and furnishing and what not to get it the way that I want it. I finally finished it up today. I'm so happy! This was a project though. I have a love-hate relationship with building.

    Here are a couple images:

    Please excuse the blandness of the bedrooms though. Bedrooms are one of my big weaknesses. : (

    Next up: Two more houses that I built awhile ago that I'm going to recreate and fix up!

      Hello :) The home looks very nice! Very nice design of the exterior, and the layout of the interior looks very nice. Very nice colour scheme of the interior of the home. The roof covered front entrance to the home is very nice. Nice back patio outdoors dining area, for Sims to enjoy eating at the table in the sunshine.
      It is a very nice home :)

      Hello.
      I am sorry to hear that you need to have teeth extracted :( I hope that the dental surgery goes as smoothly as possible, and that the healing of your mouth goes well.
      I send hugs to you <3

    After downloading Seasons my Sims who had maxed a few of their skills, (i.e., painting, cooking and archaeology) are now at either level 6 or 3. These sims were born in the game and are about to die, so they are not able to maxed said skills again. The toddler in this family cannot go up or down the stairs. While I couldn't do anything about the toddler and the stairs issue, I tried the max skill cheat (stats.set_skill_level Major_Archaeology 10) on one of my elders who had maxed this skill and lo and behold it didn't work. I tried the career promotion cheat on their grandson, and that didn't work either. So the cheat bar or whatever is typed in the control+shift+c bar doesn't work either. I have been playing with the sim family for a long time, they all where born in the game and now their skills have been cut in half in some cases or reduced to 1 or none in other categories. I don't want to continue playing with them, unless EA comes up with a solution, or you can possibly help

      I started a new save with my sims as neighbors who fell in love. They moved in together and became foster parents to this beautiful little girl Julianne. Later, they officially adopted her and now have a foster son and Katherine just gave birth to a son named Nixon.

      Hello,
      Repairing the game may help. To do that, go to games library in Origin, right click on the sims 4 picture and click repair

      If you have cc/mods in your game, move your whole mods folder to the desktop. Then start the game and see if the issues are still there.
