    Has anyone made a mod that prevents Sims from using cauldrons to make food? It drives me nuts because if they make Mac & Cheese, Chili or Cippolini in the cauldron, then the next time I go to make an actual potion, there's a good chance I'll get something that LOOKS like the potion until you go to bottle it up, and then you end up with a plate of food in your hand and several more in your pack. I've tried resetting (debug) the cauldron after each time it's used for food, but it doesn't always help.

    Thanks!!

    Give this a try:

    Thanks, looks like it should do the trick. There's 2 versions - one that stops autonomous cooking and one that removes the cooking option all together. I grabbed that one, and, so far, no more M&C :smiley:

    I'm kind of worried with the recent game packs that they're setting a trend of game packs not coming with worlds again.. Dream Home Decorator didn't have a world, Batuu didn't even have proper lots and now it's looking like this next pack isn't gonna have a world with it either. I really hope they don't go back to not including worlds because worlds are the main reason I buy packs, I desperately need somewhere new to play in after only getting one world in the past year :s

    I'm thinking that the next time I make a video about cats and dogs, I'll make all the cats and dogs green.
    You can never discover The Sims games 100%. Even when you think you know everything, the game manages to surprise you.
    That's why I do experiments in the game from time to time and tutorial videos on YouTube.

    I wouldn’t be too bad if they would throw in some more (free) blank worlds like Newcrest.

    So I've been playing live mode a lot more than usual and I had a quick question for you all. Is there a definitive way to make sure sims you like don't get culled? I never really thought about that until now. I read somewhere how Erwin got culled from someone's game and it made me think how I don't want stuff like that to happen.

    Mark the household played in Household Manager and they will not be culled. Other option is to use mods, for example with MCCC you can flag sims to not be culled. 😊

    Thank you so much! Just went through and marked a bunch played.

    Does marking lots of households as played slow the game down very much? I'm playing on a very good laptop, and it's running just fine, but I'm considering putting the "played" tag on quite a few more households.

    Not from what I noticed! I do play on an Xbox One S though and don't have every pack.

    Here's a random comment or question for ya! Sims use the toilet at least 2 times a day right? Soooo does the toilet paper EVER run out? No!!! Why? The food is paid for (check your fridge prices), the water, and light's are paid for, (check your lot taxes), your internet and phone is paid for (with the Sims National Bank mod), but the toilet paper is free? Is there a mod that makes us pay for toilet paper? If so please let me know so I can get it. LOL

    I really need to go through everything in BB. There's so much content in the game now. Things I've totally forgotten about and never use.

    I am finding build/buy really intimating!

    I didn't play for a handful of years and I started again back end of last year, so I have all the updates that have taken place over those years and have also bought a handful of packs. On the one hand its really nice seeing all those new icons, but I go into BB and think Good grief, where to start?

    My sims often stop whatever they're doing just to go look at a piece of furniture. I have to wait for them to finish and requeue their action list. Anyone else have this in their game? I think the solution is to not select any preferences in decorations. It happens often and it's irritating.

    totally random.... but when they were showcasing the Laundry Day Stuff pack, I could've sworn they showed and advertised the end tables that came with the pack auto stacking on eachother... but they do not in the game. I know the washer and dryer do, but was certain the other items did as well :D

    I have. The first time I gave a sim a décor preference, she stopped in the middle of making a vlog to go stare at a section of her couch, and I lost all progress. Then when I had her start over, her mood changed right before she was finished, ruining my second attempt to make an inspired vlog. I will -never- give another sim one of those preferences, because that is terrible AI.

    ETA: And I had autonomy turned off when this happened, which made it several times more infuriating.

    I've said this before but I would DIE if we got an option to exclude/hide specific items. There's so much stuff I would never use, especially in the clutter/misc catalogs. Same with CAS, so much clothing I would never use, and haven't used.

    What's the best way to get new clients to show up on the DHD gig list? I keep getting the same list of sims for the gigs that aren't bugged.

    I'd like makeover a small neighborhood like Forgotten Hollow, fill it with fixer upper houses and go the houses as the decorator. When I add sims to the houses does marking them as played or unplayed households give them a better chance of being on the gig list?l

    I wish so hard that they would just give us the option to "favorite" some items, and have them appear first in their category every time

    Also, random question - when you have "laundry stuff" and/or you love laundry rooms, do you look for lots that have laundry rooms?
    Or do you add a laundry room to every lot; it doesn't matter if the lot comes with one or not?

    I just add laundry facilities to any lot I like. With how washer/dryer can be stacked and you only need one hamper for the entire lot it's pretty simple to find a spot for them in even the smallest of houses. I only make an actual laundry "room" if there is enough space for it.
    My current house, for example, I put the laundry facilities in a tiny sitting area that is right outside the master bedroom. The tiny area was there in the lot (which is from the gallery), but originally it was just two chairs. Now it's a chair on one side and laundry on the other.

    And I totally agree with your wish for favoriting of items in BB and CAS. I'd actually kill for the ability to make our own "catalogs" of specific items as well, like we had in uh... I think TS2.

    Yes, this is happening to me a lot. It's very annoying. Sim will stop in the middle of cooking or whatever to go to the farthest room in the basement to look at a table. It's so annoying and time wasting. Can't we turn that off somehow??
