    One thing I learned is the debug menu is amazing! I guess I was a little late to start using it as I literally just started and have had this game since release. Also, depending on how you play turn the aging off. I like doing this as it allows me more time to do what I want until I am ready to age up. I also enjoy playing one family at a time and on long setting when I do allow aging. Another faithful tip, remember your roof (lol)! I love to build but this sometimes slips my mind.

    Good morning! I'm new to posting here. I've only made one post. I need to get my count up in order to make any profile changes, like a photo etc. So, not new to Sims just new to posting here.
    I'm a senior and live in a small town in Texas between Longview and Tyler.
    Today is town day and I'm running a little behind, so gotta go!

    Hi, can someone help me out please, I didnt know where else to ask. My sim died and became a ghost but i didnt add her to my household. She then called another one of my sims and asked if she should try for a baby and i answered yes. The ghost sim then became pregnant and at some point had a baby because i could see it on the family tree. The baby was human and grew into a human toddler. My issue is that I cant find the toddler and I dont know where they could be. If anyone has any ideas please let me know :)

    If You can find em in Edit Town, then place em somewhere in the world and You can vistit em. If You want em to be normal sims, that is possible in different ways. Feed a sim Ambrosia f.ex. or use spell as Spellcaster. Spellcaster may sound like a long process, but I think it is not that bad. :)

    After updating your game, You need to activate Mods, as they are turned of by the game during updates. Hopefully your sims and saves will work again. :)

    It's an anti-troll spam measure. You're still a "new member" and you need to be just a "member" to make a new thread. Until then feel free to ask questions here in this thread.

    See here for full details on how to get to member status: https://forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/770609/member-or-new-member-everything-you-need-to-know/p1
    This post will be edited by StormKeep at some point.

    I've been playing for over 20 years. The first thing I did was build a house. Didn't realize it was going to be so time consuming. Let's just say I came in after taking my kiddo to school and had to be called because i was over 30 minutes late picking her up. I honestly don't remember if there were prebuilt house in the gallery, but I did take advantage of the premade sims.
    Buy game packs when on sale. You save a whole lot of money that way. The more kids I had the more I opened my eyes on how to keep up to date on y expansions and packs.

    Hi everyone, I have been play sims since the sims 1. Before I am more focus on building house, decorate the rooms. But now, I started learning how to write mod! Trying to learn more from the forums.

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but does anyone know if there's a way to remove those cards in world mode (when you're choosing what family to play) that say something like "sage estates" with a description on that place in the world? I'm okay with it being a mod, but I'm not finding anything. Maybe I'm not typing in the right words in the search bar?
    I want to make my own personal custom save for myself, but those info cards make it hard for me to do so. Thanks

    Just change the name of the lot in build mode. Anything else can be changed as well in other spots. As for removing them all at once, no idea.

    Hello everyone! I have been a longtime lurker but I am trying to be more active and participate in this wonderful community that I have observed for so long. I used to write SimLit a while ago, and I am hoping to get back into it as I have missed it much more than I thought I would.

    Hello. I'm new to the forum but have been playing TS4 regularly for the past 4 years. I'm currently waiting to post a new thread:

    I have a piece of custom content I found: Nysha's "Free, No Obligation!" british window set (https://modthesims.info/d/584075/quot-free-no-obligation-quot-window-set.html) and I love it... But... It is for the Sims 2. Is there a way anyone/ me could easily convert it or replicate it to fit with the new Sims 4. Course, my game crashes with it now.

    Also, the website above linked is >not< the one I desire the CC file to be from. This is: http://simfil.es/2683706/
    It is the clear glass edit.

    Thank you!

    Hello everyone i am a new simmer but i found that mods really enhance my gameplay, otherwise it would be too boring for me ahaha. I watched this video for some references on mods and helped me out since a lot of mods listed are not talked about a lot but i find really useful http://fumacrom.com/3w7cY
    Any other suggestions are welcomed, thank you :)
