I hope it's okay to ask about this here. I came back to TS3 after playing just TS4 for a bit and I wanted to try and play a whole world in TS3. I did try playing with the included story progression in TS3, but some sims I cared about just vanished or had randam babies added, who looked nothing like either parent. That's not what I want.
I am not sure, if that would stop with story progression disabled. I used to play with nraas SP and I wouldn't mind to keep that, but I just want a light story progression. It would be great, if sims didn't get married, vanished, were imported or had babies on their own. I'd like for them to keep aging, add some skills, maybe get promoted and it would also be okay for them to change their relationships, as long as their wouldn't move or get married on their own. It would also be great, if pregnancies continued, when I switch families. And I don't want them to add pets on their own either.
Basically, I'd like to control when a sim or pet gets added to a household or when a whole family moves. I've been trying to figure out how to set up nraas SP to achieve that, but I am not sure, if I did it right, because it's kinda hard to test.
Does anybody play like this or with similar settings?
