  • @HorrorGirl6 Actually, yes, it can be caused by the world, or more aptly bad world building. @king_of_simcity7 the lag in IP is well documented with an entire thread devoted to it started by Ciane who fixed and shared a save with the lag-producing e…
  • Without SSD mine loads in around 4 minutes or less but I don't have a lot of CC (although I lately did add quite a bit more that still isn't merged and that is what pushed me up to the longer around 4 minutes) and only about half the store installed…
  • testingcheatsenabled true>shift-click teleport here is my all-time favorite cheaty cheat and I use it whenever I don't want to be bothered on waiting for a Sim to get somewhere (not real often) or if a Sim ends up in a place they can't maneuver o…
  • I like the the wants/fears (TS2) and wishes (TS3) systems in both because they added an extra layer of complexity to the game. I usually have a path for my Sims in mind but I like to use what they "want" as a guideline for how they will pu…
  • I used to do (and kept a copy of the images in the folder with whatever it was) that then I would run into problems occasionally where I would end up with duplicate files with different names. I had the most massive organizational structures for Sim…
  • How do I weed out bad hair? I put my hand gently over it then wriggle my fingers down under the roots and give it a good yank! Okay, seriously, I keep pictures and the original archive files on my back-up drive. I download the file first, then save…
  • And that makes perfect sense and we are in agreement on most, if not all of that particular paragraph. It's the other things, like the plug being pulled on Olympus, that we disagree on. From your post up the page: Based on all the evidence I have re…
  • I notice you said OFB was one of your favorite TS2 expansion packs. I'm wondering if you ever got bored with it. It was my favorite too, only made better by every other expansion pack (aside from Seasons which killed a considerable number of my Sims…
  • If you buy from eBay just look for discs that include a license number. You already have the other license numbers registered but in case those don't work with your discs you'll have the numbers for installation at least. I've bought some of my stuf…
  • @Erpe Indeed they "investigate" their players. I can't count how many times I got a survey about Sims 2 and later for Sims 3 where as soon as I answered the first question: "What is your age group?" I was locked out of answering …
  • Everyone, including a large company like EA, can make a decision that ultimately can be not such a good one and I know they didn't intentionally create a bad game. The fellow I mentioned in my above post (his initials are F.G.) believes strongly in …
  • I'm the same way with TS3. I don't have a lot of CC because with CASt I don't need it to make things look like I want them to look. What CC I do have fills in spaces where the game lacks, like decorative objects and more storage containers. I was al…
  • @Erpe are you forgetting the changing horses in the middle of the stream scenario? (Dear readers, bear in mind the following is based in fact but certain details may or may not be represented 100% accurately and no names will be mentioned.) We can …
  • One thing that holds me back from reinstalling TS2 is the possibility I won't want to play without CASt. However, something that I always loved about TS2 was how when I decided I wanted something I didn't have in my game as far as textures (walls, f…
  • Right? Sometimes as I'm reading some of the topics here (I don't play TS4 so I usually don't post) and see how they "can't talk" or this, that and the other and I think about how much fun it was every time I opened a new expansion pack for…
  • It's just a personal thing, I know, but I like the tractor from Grandpa's Grove in the store a lot better than either the Harvester or that cute little dragon. I don't keep most of my Sims' crops under the grow station either because it and the drag…
  • Aside from going for the consignment stores first I play build-it-as-the-opportunity-presents-itself. When I find an NPC that I like that has a personality that will help earn a lot I move them in and set them to work. I haven't played on it in mont…
  • In my case part of it is because I was last playing the Nothing Is Free Challenge, whereby no single community lot gets built in your town until your Sims "earn" it. Earning generally means a Sim getting a certain skill set AND having the …
  • I use a few cheats in the form of mods to help with that kind of thing. First of all, NRaas Relativity to double the length of the day and gives my Sims enough time to actually live. There really isn't anywhere nearly enough time in a Sim's day by …
  • Monte Vista is a $19.99 world in the TS3 store. I bought it (or rather the code-in-the-box) off Amazon and got the bundle with Hidden Springs because it was a lot cheaper that way.
  • Pfft. Even without Relativity I can have a Sim to Level 7 in gardening in a day easily. Just start off their gardening skill then send them to a public lot that has a lot of stuff to pick it doesn't take long at all. Fishing takes longer and if I d…
  • If nothing else I love the grow station from the store for those Supernatural mushrooms. For me it's too OP to use on everything but I like to consider it like a greenhouse if I want to get something off to a quick start or in the case of the mushro…
  • Of course you can sell it back but the idea here is to hang on to the business and keep making money off of it. If money is that big of an issue, as in for some reason your Sim really needs a little something right now to tide them over I think coll…
  • They should be showing up on this page in the store. I can see them there.
  • The number of days of the lifespan isn't a set number. It's just like Sims, based on the type of care the dog had throughout its life. For example, if they've been fed home-made pet food their lifespan will be slightly longer. Once they reach the en…
  • Excellent! I do hope you enjoy it. TS2 is an awesome game!
  • I think it shouldn't either. The tool you want to check for potentially corrupt .package files is the Dashboard. CUSTARD is the Sims3Pack cleaner, very useful for removing things a person doesn't want in their game when installing Sims3Pack files bu…
  • My Sims that make a living off the consignment store usually haul in around §70,000 a day and could do more. It took them a while to get there but the husband gardens and is a gem cutter while the wife fishes and makes elixirs. They both have the Bo…
  • At the very least it will be a temporary solution, as in the new town won't yet have a lot going on with it but as time goes on save times will increase. More Sims and more lots is more the game needs to save. And like I said before, going longer be…
