  • I have this issue as well. Trick is that, for whatever reason my plants start an planted, grow to maturity then return to planted for no apparent reason. All post patch.
  • Consistently in the $500k range. I have built multi-basement castles with lower bills. This is a regular house with a detached greenhouse and a single level basement. (30x20 lot) Now if Schrewd was working it'd be ok. but when you spend 90% of your time to make up the bills and a fortnightly bill is 50% of the value of the…
  • I kind of assumed that "Off-the-Grid" only worked for my primary home lot. Once I acquired ANY additional property bills showed up (like death and taxes). So if you have a store, restaurant or a clinic I would recommend that you assume you will need to pay utilities for those lots. I only started getting bills once I…
  • Playing a multi-generational vampire family (I think it's 40 sims) I tend to move one of the "kids" into a new lot with some items, skills and not a lot else. You can always do home to get more equipment (usually I use art to transfer wealth), but starting again makes for a good reset in my experience. The Simonleans are…
  • Hence the Cheap Laptop, you can take it to the library (or any public lot with a flat surface really) and get the parts that way. As I said above, the computers in the Library didn't have the "Order" option (at least in my game) so I needed to get the laptop. You can also take your chances and leave the fridge out in the…
  • Other things I haven't seen mentioned here. * The fire pit that comes with Island Living has five big meals that can keep you fed and raises the Cooking skill * The ICEBox Fridge, once upgraded (and under a roof, rookie mistake) works as well as most any other fridge. * The Antique stove gives 2 meals so you can get the…
  • I spent like 20 minutes looking for solar panels. lol
  • There is also a really dodgy stove that sort of works ... using gas. I can get it to cook things about one time in three.
  • I like that idea of the 50/50 method. Thanks!
  • Thanks, I found it looks like a specific mod has been hiding a whole lot of changes to the reward list. :S
  • I had this issue too (well part of it at least). When you start writing a song and interrupt it for any reason (when it works, more later on that). you get a set of Music in your inventory. You can return to continue that piece by clicking on it in your inventory and selecting continue. Once you finish it, provided you are…
  • So an infinite number of Mods, Add ins, etc for Programmers and only one song per instrument for Artists? I think, if this is an oversight you may want to look at body of the work of ... well any real world artist for inspiration.
  • Just got the txt notification from my local supplier(EB Games). The expansion will be available tomorrow.... Pity about the whole work thing.
  • I got it and was left thinking "this is an item that's screaming out for a modders attention". ;) J.
  • Fertility treatment, kids TV and something you eat(?) I can't seem to have less then triplets with this couple (both have fertility btw). I eat apples for boys and I think it's watermellon for girls... but maybe that's what's giving me more kids. Not sure, but apples definitly skew the chances to a male child. Of course…
  • It's interesting when the clone appears when terribly pregnant in the home when you return from vacation. I have two of my main lass that have delivered triplets before "the clone" could even enter the house after being over seas! I got two sets of triplets, unofrtunately they weren't clones of each other and I had to send…
  • I have 6 kids in the Prep School, so far 4 have come back (the 2 Vampire, Ghost Children are still out there not sure if it's a bug but hey). So far they have received: Snob, Ambitious, Charisma Skill gain and Writing Skill gain. Haven't lost any traits still not sure if they have a unique social yet. J.
  • Yup 10 years in Sydney, I still find myself making an assumption that would have been correct in Sydney but not so much in Brisbane (usually about retail store opening hours). ;) Pity I have 2 parental responsibilities and three critical work meetings tomorrow. Otherwise I think I'd be playing Generations from about 9:45am…
  • I checked in again on closing, yeah right on opening you can pick up the game. The guy at the local (EB) actually did check for me and did assure me that it wouldn't be available until then. Sometimes they (that store) do pre-orders the day before but not this time. Sokay, tomorrow is another day and I suspect that we'll…
  • I just looked at the stand, blinked and then asked the branch owner "Err... are you sure that you should be selling that yet?" he told me about there not being a date, etc. They got a business to run and it's only fair that they play by the rules. Sometime the dice fall in our favour. Best of luck today, I've got a busy…
  • If memory serves the street date wasn't entered into the system the stores use, so the stock arrived and the store staff (rather then corporate) started calling their pre-order customers and put it on the shelves since their systems didn't say there wasn't a reason to do so. Lucky for us. ;) J.
  • I suspect that while EB may want a receipt (and perhaps avoid any consequences if they did break the embargo) EA will be more interested in the PR hit. Give their office a call tomorrow (normal business hours, ask for the Sims Product Manager), the number is in the white pages rather then the help lines and explain the…
  • Well there's always the local EB Branch in Southport if you feel terribly motivated. The staff are always helpful even if they get a little razed when they get a flurry of calls from motivated simmers. ;) When I called in regarding Medieval I suspect that they'd had more then enough, the content of the offer document to…
  • In Brisbane too no less. Grats to her! J.
  • I'm sure it would be beneficial to pass on the info to EB Game HQ if you can find some evidence. I can pick my pre-order up tomorrow which would fit into my plans quite nicely. :) J.
  • The last few EA Sims releases have had some issues with early release in Australia so it doesn't surprise me that they're being fairly strict. That being said, the embargo is designed to not disadvantage one retailer over another. That all goes out the window if someone starts selling the game early. I suspect that there…
  • Given the number of issues that don't seem to have been fixed from Late Night, I'm hoping that the few days will be enough for the authors of the stability mods (Overwatch et.al.) to get their code re-engineered for the new release, that way I may actually be able to play the game when it's released and "patched". ;) J.
  • I have checked in with my local suppliers, in Brisbane at least and the "street date" is Thursday June 2nd which, all things being equal is when it should be released. They are getting their stock of the game tomorrow (Monday May 30th, if they haven't already)and, given that the game is already out there they may release…
  • Very "Brady Bunch" kind of things. I'm with you, I think that there's a lot more to worry bout raising teenagers then the possibility that they're egging my neighbor's house. ;) J.
  • You made my morning with that comment, I'm listening to my kids in the next room.... *Priceless* J.
