    My baby chilled in the car seat for a bit (figured out how to make it work!).

    Then, my sim went to the casino, hit a 10,000 simoleon jackpot and leveled up in gambling.

    And then literally right after hitting that machine, she won the 1 million simoleons lotto from store lottery tickets.
    Here's her victory dance:

    My sim family needed the money so badly and it helps, since my sim is with child <3

    @emorrill re:SS This makes me SO SO SO happy!! I can live vicariously through YOU living vicariously through HER *giggles uncontrollably* I honestly had started going back through every QL episode I could remember trying to think of the love of his life Emma :joy: MORE thank once! :joy::joy:WHAT a dunderhead!

    Do whatcha ga' do, gurl! I'm just so pleased you're liking the updates and my writing :blush::)

    @ZhakiraP Something must be in the water in Praaven, all those babies being born! LOL
    Summer looks like she will be a beauty!
    Kermit looks pretty lordly.

    @Silverofdreams30 Happy Midsummer!

    @thuggishsplicer I'm enjoying the detective stuff and just add to the story a bit with my imagination. It was so funny that the 'thief' turned out to be the ghost buster and was at her house getting rid of ghosts so I had to incorporate that into the story. A lot of the detective stuff is kinda silly like the little girl wanting him to find out who used her toothpaste.....not gonna be part of the story, but, he will do it to get the points. :)

    @AbellaKellaher I added a bunch of simselves and a few player made sims to a futuristic world called Sanctuary. I play two sims that I put in the world just for fun and let the others alone to see who is pairing up with who. I have not played it in awhile as I got too caught up with my Cowboy and Mermaid and other stories. I didn't make a thread for it since it was just for fun, but, I think some of the posts are in my Random Happenings thread. About half way down the page. They'd be too hard to go back and find on this thread! :open_mouth: Emily ( @emorrill's ) and Sam are gravitating towards each other in it. @silverofdreams simself is partnered and had David (@tinyspacefox's sim) baby! @CravenLestat simself is playing the field still. Becky (@Charlottesmom simself) was stalking Sebastian....another of tinyspacefox's sims. (not really stalking....just want to wake her up if she is lurking around here)

    @GraceyManor He better get busy talking. He should be able to prove where he was when he allegedly was on the puter (probably playing with his little girls or doing a concert!) She's ticking me off! She needs some faith in her man.

    @Linamints Long time no see ya! Looks hot in your game! :lol:

    @Mikezumi So....who got the splinter in their tush...inquiring minds want to know! :tongue:
    I think Shannon has had a bit of plastic surgery in this save. He doesn't have as aged look!
    Nice that Keanu found his treehouse and was able to play in it without being traumatized! :lol:

    @ElainaFrost Welcome and it sounds like you have a fun game going on. Bummer about the crashing though.

    @Nomiko13 Hi! Your sim sounds like a very lucky sim!

    @bekkasan Am about to head out door to visit sister but saw your comment. Thanks :)
    As for Shannon, I have made no changes to his looks. He always looked very young as an elder. I think the hair he had in my Roaring Heights save might be the only difference.

    Edit to add pic: Here's Shannon in Roaring Heights save. I am thinking the hair is what makes him look older here.

    NOW I remember Shannon @Mikezumi ! Awwww, you look so cute as a early century house wife!! :love:

    @bekkasan that's awesome! What a lark I think that would be!!

    @Nomiko13 aww congrats x2! Jackpot AND baby! :)

    @TinySpaceFox Welcome back! Well done on finishing your exams. I hope you get a lot of time to relax and play your sims again. Your drawing of Martin is so cute! Aw his hair is so messy and plum :smile:
    @Silverofdreams30 That's weird, I don't play on Steam so I have no idea sorry. I hope that message doesn't come up again.
    Jake is so nice to look at. I'm jealous of your sim making skills :tongue: Ty's looks haven't changed much since he became an Adult. I still love Audra's wedding dress :smile:
    @Steamvarius Great work on getting that skill challenge completed for Rachel. She's so lucky to have three cars. The fireflies look pretty at night. That's unlucky that Drake didn't catch any fish. You must really love the colour pink :smile:

    pg. 3552
    @Brandontaylor The launcher unticking games is apparently a constant problem with Origin. I'm on a disc install but hopefully other people have some suggestions for you.
    @ZhakiraP If you don't mind me asking, what skin and eyes do you use? All of your sims are very pretty. Agnes is just adorable, she looks so sweet. Bartholomew is a cutie too :smile:
    Oh my gosh so many pregnancies and toddlers in your game. I'm curious do you have Generations reputation system working? It would be so interesting to see what it says about these sims. Desmond's curly hair is unique, I don't think I've seen that hair before. Olive and Angelina sleeping on the rocking chairs looks funny. Kermit has grown into a responsible and mature looking child. It must be quite a change for Summer going from a castle into a children's home. That's a cute little garden for them to work in.
    @emorrill Hey don't worry about it :heart: The PM has been very quiet for a while now so I guess we are all busy with other things :smile:
    I love that gif too, it's so mesmerising almost hypnotic :lol: Ooh that's a smexy cover. The chainmail suits Sam, if only it was made into a proper ep :smile:
    @AbellaKellaher Let me know if you have any trouble with the fadeobjects cheat. I'm just going off my memory and I can get some details mixed up sometimes. I loveee the X Files and I'm laughing imagining someone working in a Lone Gunmen themed office :lol: Sounds like you are well equipped. I just feel sad when people talk about deleting their images but if you have like 100 of the same scene then I can see why it would be a good thing to cut down a bit :smile:
    Like Silver said, bekkasan has an SS game set in a futuristic world. I think she played it sometime last year. There are a few other simselfs scattered around in other games, I think thuggishsplicer has quite a few their game.
    @GraceyManor Kristy is just being silly at this point. Even if Josh did log into his account (which he didn't). There's nothing to suggest that he was talking with girls or anything. She needs to think harder about the fact that someone sent an email telling her to look at his account. That is so fishy! I'm glad Josh's romantic verses got through to Kristy finally :smile:
    @Linamints Oh my gosh that is just hilarious. I feel so bad for your garden though, but it would have been hysterical to watch that all play out. You could always go back to a previous save but it seems that the game was intent on causing damage!
    @mikezumi Thanks for the link for the rings. Of course Mikezumi and Shannon have to check if the tree is sturdy enough lol. He sure is a very handsome elder sim, such a loving gaze! That easel will get plenty of attention by Keanu. It must have been their look earlier which resulted in a trip to the bedroom. Keanu's block creation is cute.
    @ElainaFrost Hi and welcome to the forums :smile: It would be nice to see some pictures of your sims when you become a full member.

    @Nomiko13 Woop woop, congrats on winning the jackpot! Now she can spend it on things for the new baby :smile:

    Still haven't came up with a solution to the issue. I started a thread to see if anyone can help so hopefully someone knows what to do. I'm on a disk install but it is a more recent disk so you have to have Origin to run it and the 1.69 update.
  • KarritzKarritz Posts: 19,901 Member
    Still haven't came up with a solution to the issue. I started a thread to see if anyone can help so hopefully someone knows what to do. I'm on a disk install but it is a more recent disk so you have to have Origin to run it and the 1.69 update.

    There used to be a huge thread at the top of this forum on this subject. It seems to have been unpinned.

    As far as I know, this is a feature they introduced in patch 1.69.

    But, since you went ahead and uninstalled your game, did you clean your registry? If not that'd be a place to start with rectifying your issues. You'd need to uninstall, clean the registry and then reinstall. This is because uninstalling doesn't properly clean out the registry and reinstalling without first cleaning your registry can result in the game not running.

    Otherwise, it's just a patch 1.69 thing and is the main reason so many people have gone to Steam if they didn't have the old version of the base game that'd let them play a disk only version of the game.

    You could try Answers HQ if you can't get an answer you like here.

    "Kristy, let's go home and talk some more.Please?" "I'd like that Josh.I'm tired anyways."

    heading home a fan stopped Kristy for an autograph.

    "Now what's wrong?" "I got an email again.." "Give me that.Let me see."

    "Miss Andrews....your favorite singer may be stepping out on you......woah...Hey!" "You can't believe all this Kristy....this isn't right!"

    "Kristy, I don't even know my password for the site, but I need to login to see something, I have to reset the password.." "Okay, go ahead."
    Josh logged into, and clicked on "recent logins" the IP address did not match the IP address of his computer nor his phone."See? IP doesn't even match...someone's hacking my accounts."

    "Your ex maybe..." "No, peter's not that smart.That's giving him too much credit." "..." "What?" Kristy just had an idea of whom it might be.
    "I think I might know...now.."

    "Kristy who?" "Tyler....Josh....he came on to me the other night while you were on tour.I had to push him off me." "What?! Are you serious...I mean I believe you Kristy, I know you wouldn't make that up...I'm gonna kill him..." "But...But I don't have proof he's setting you up"

    "I got an idea and I need you to just go along with it.." "Uh...what is it Josh? I'm not gonna woohoo with him or anything so.." "Maker's breath! I wouldn't torture you like that!"

    Tyler was flirting with Kristy when Josh walked in."The lady said no Tyler, being a police officer, you should know what that means."
    "Oh I was just being nice is all Josh." "Sure."

    "I do have something to show you." Josh held up the emails for Tyler to read.

    Tyler went completely white as if he saw a ghost."Busted Tyler...Oh and what's the word I'm looking for....FIRED.Stay away from my family."

    "I hope we're good now Kristy.I'm sorry, I probably should have just deleted that site to begin with." "I'm sorry to.I shouldn't have jumped to conclusions." "Its fine, I might have done the same honestly."

    This is @CravenLestat's new sim Colette Davis. Her aspiration is to be a chef but I fancy her as a bit of a gamer on the side. Her favourite colour is blue so I tried to follow a theme with that :smile:

  • ChuChuExpressChuChuExpress Posts: 1,370 Member
    @coco, 3553.
    Thanks for the feedback! My favourite colour is dark blue, but when my parents are out for the weekend, It tends to be pink. And in the olden days, before I was born, Pink used to be a boy colour, whilst blue was a girl colour...And I'm a man who likes both.

    Bith you and @ZhakiraP got me into the mood to
    check back with my Praaven save yesterday, I do not have all that cc anymore.
    But my Sim looked the same, she did not have the dress so had to switch hehe.
    Will have to look around at my other families there to see if they still look the same as from start.
    I also gave Matthew a bit of edit when I moved his save to my original cc folder.


    My original cc game worked with no problem so had to move
    Matthews save to that folder and delete that other one.
    I love your Seville and Logan sims so you have great sim making
    skills too. That photoshoot is gorgeous, I now wish I had your photoshoot making skills haha.


    I am glad the both of them now understand each other and have made up.


    Your Praavens ave sounds fun, it got me in the mood to check out my old Praven
    save as well lol.
    Thanks for the sites I downloaded a few beards.


    I had to move Matthews save to my original folder,
    but then the game worked.


    Thanks, it was a rainy day.


    Keanu is a great looking sim kid, I love all the great
    names you come up with.

  • Silverofdreams30Silverofdreams30 Posts: 4,754 Member
    So @ZhakiraP got em in the mood to check out
    my old Praaven save I had backed up on my external drive.
    I only took two screenshots however, I do have a normal update to post after these two.




    My Bianca sim was asleep, her bed is not very medieval but
    she likes it lol.

    Today, I finally decided on the windows for the living room at Loveheart Chateau.
    I also changed the bench design:
    Rachel started work on Princess Loveheart and the Carnival of Colour, the 21st book in the series:
    Whilst that was happening, I removed the plants near the kitchen windows and moved the stray gnomes to that area:
    When I was done, Rachel had finished typing up Princess Loveheart and the Carnival of Colour:
    She had a well deserved bath:
    Later, Drake had a bath as well:
    Whilst that was happening, Rachel and Iris were having a pillow fight!
    Rachel then gave Iris a big loving hug and several big smooches on her face:
    Iris giggled a lot. Rachel had covered her face in big bright pink lipstick smooches. 'Thanks for being such an awesome mum!' Iris said, smiling at Rachel. 'You're welcome, Iris, my beautiful daughter!' Rachel replied. She used her demigoddess powers to magically clean Iris, removing the lipstick smooches from her face:
    Drake then came out of the bathroom. Rachel sat in front of the mirror in her bedroom and applied her bright pink raspberry scented lipstick. Drake sat and watched:
    Rachel then smiled and gave Drake a big loving hug and several big smooches on his face:
    Rachel then blew several big kisses towards Drake, which landed on his face:
    Drake went bright red, and giggled. Rachel had covered his face in big bright pink raspberry scented lipstick smooches. 'Thank you for the lipstick smooches, mum!' Drake said, still blushing, but smiling brightly. 'Awww, you're welcome, my cute, adorable and kissable son!' Rachel said, smiling sweetly and batting her eyelashes at Drake:
    She then used her demigoddess powers to magically clean Drake, removing the lipstick smooches from his face:
    They then played in fairy form:

    Bonus Picture
    Originally I put a fountain near the outside of the kitchen:
    But I found it was making my game lag, so I took it out.

    Normal update


    Mixologist always shows up when my sims have parties lol.


    since Jake had moved in Matthew had a wish for a party.
    ( parties are so easy to meet people at). Jake watched TV while
    Matthew called people he knew.


    " Hey everyone, there's this big party this afternoon you won't like to miss out"

    I later switched to Tys save and played Alex for a bit, lol had forgotten he
    had invited to a party as well to meet his soulmate.


    Calling guests for dinner


    I noticed Luna walking with Max past Alex home



    These two left before even entering, Alex was not quick enough to invite
    everyone in.



    Only two guests stayed put


    This one decided to use the sauna


    Alex had fun dancing with this girl


    photo fail

    All for now

    @PalmArrow Regarding your post on p3544, I use TSR Workshop to change textures. I also tried that tutorial and I couldn't do what I wanted. :'(
    Should you need help with TSR Workshop, you can count on me. Here's the link of the program: https://www.thesimsresource.com/workshop/
    I believe you have the gimp or photoshop plug-in to make the DDS files.

    @thuggishsplicer , thanks for the suggestion! I downloaded TSR Workshop a while ago, and I seem to remember there was a helpful step by step guide for beginners somewhere online, but I can't find it now. Do you know where I could find something like that? (I use paint.net for image editing, and it can open dds files directly, without plug-ins, which is very helpful!)

    @Silverofdreams30 Thank you :) I didn't make up the name, Keanu. He is my Keanu Reeves sim as a child :)
  • bekkasanbekkasan Posts: 8,211 Member

    @Mikezumi Perhaps it is the skin you use on him that keeps him from having the typical elder look to his face. :)

    @Brandontaylor I'm sorry you have not got the issues fixed. It usually doesn't take a full reinstall to fix, but, I'm not patched to 1.69 so I don't know how that messed up things. I do have the old disk and can do it without origin....knock on wood!

    @GraceyManor Glad they were able to work things out. I don't think Josh would have done the same thing. He'd of got mad, but he wouldn't have run off. He'd of confronted her about it right then and they would have talked it out. She needs to learn running is not the answer and hopefully she did.

    @ChocoCub :smirk:

    @coco Beautiful pics of Collete. I love how you background your sims for their pictures.

    @Silverofdreams30 Your scene from Praaven looks beautiful.
    Lots of parties going on, but, it is a great way to meet people at the beginning of a story.
    It's nice the two who stayed were females!

    @Mikezumi Cute outfits for everyone. Love the little romper with the ruffles on the tush!

    Happy simming everyone. I'm working this weekend so not sure what kind of time I will have to play!
