    I also think (im rlly not sure) that sims can die from not doing laundry after a long time, making the stinky clothes be everywhere around the house.... not sure...

    Yes! I always use that tool. It's a shame that the uploads on the news section doesn't show these icons.

    Now, on topic. Did you new that alien hybrids had a secret handshake? And that the outdoor retreat items allow you to camp everywere, even in workplaces! Is fun to live as a nomad.

    Outdoor retreat is fast becoming my favourite pack. Those tents, showers and tiny fridge boxes mean that you can now stay a weekend or more on Sulani without having to go home, as well as everywhere else, if you keep them in your inventory.

    I found out that if you graft a money tree with a different type of tree (I did it with a pear tree) you can see the money fruit on the tree (looks like a bunch of simolean bills) and harvest it into your inventory to plant more instead of just selling it.

    There was a small window of time on may, where you could graft mushroom into trees. The effect was hilarious, sadly I had never seen a mushroom tree uploaded to the gallery yet.

    I learned recently that if you turn the earbuds in your sim's inventory on it will increase their fun even if they're not directly interacting with it via actively listening to or dancing to it. It doesn't increase fun as fast as directly listening to it but it does increase it. As far as I'm aware of regular stereos do not do not have this feature if they're are just turned on in a room with a sim who is not listening to it.

    At any rate this has been a lifesaver in one of my poorer sim households where they haven't been able to afford a TV or computer yet and mom is too busy to read books to increase fun.

    I have not seen the earbuds, are they base of from a pack?

    Yep! Those came from the Fitness stuff pack with the rock climbing wall. :)

    The swing set that comes with Island Living raises your Fun motive so quickly, it's like a cheat.

    That's true in real life too, swings are 👍

    I did not know sims could scoot into a double sized bed if its against the wall.

    I also didn't know unemployed sims labeled themselves "stay-at-home mom" if they have a kid and you ask about their career! That's soo cute. :)

    What's some other little things you just found out?

    This is a great thread, and it made my favorite list. I keep my list small (only 3), so that should show how much I like it.

    I didn't know Sims could place things on top of a half wall.

    ...And I just realised that the tutorial house has a few things sitting on a half wall in the kitchen. ^^;

    I did not know that either. I am looking forward to trying that.

    I didn't know that other sims can autonomously break up with your sim. You'll get a notification saying, "[Sim] just broke up with [Sim]." This probably only happens when the relationship is poor.

    I didn't know about any of these, I always though you needed to have space in between the wall and that really annoyed me

    Did you know that if a sim dies in your household and after the reaper takes the sim, or finishes if they let them have a 2nd chance and you have celebrities in that household that Grim will actually come over and ask for an autograph! I had a sim die that was married to Vatore, her twin was married to Izzy Fabulous, the one sister that died was the one married to Caleb and after she was gone ( I let her stay dead she had the nerve to ask Izzy on a date just as he was about to start his wedding to her sister) Grim came over to Izzy and his wife and asked them both for an autograph!

    When my child sim was sound asleep her mum suddenly walked into the room and kissed her forehead autonomously. It was a super cute moment and never seen it happen before.

    @smurfy77 Off topic, but I always thought Izzy was gay.

    I've seen him seek out many of my female sims and flirt with them on his own, he's married a few different ones, I've never sern him in any game I've played flirt with a guy

    I didn't know that the voidcritter cards came in two versions for each card... the normal version and the limited edition foil version. (On the right of this photo you can see one of each of the same card)

    Apparently, it's possible to learn music by listening to masters of the craft...

    "Carry Lovingly" - I guess that's mod, @TomasGrizzly?
  • TomasGrizzlyTomasGrizzly Posts: 243 Member
    @loubyloulou yep. It uses the 'leap into arms' animation from proposing, Carry Lovingly is just the same initiated from the 'target' (compared to 'Leap to Arms', which is also included in the mod).
    Should be easy to find on Modthesims if you want to give it a try.
