  • It's been too hot here to do anything but I've spent an hour or so each day on my Perfect Genetics Challenge save. I'm not recording much video of it though as I'm trying to sort it out and get young sims ready to move out of the house as it's a struggle having to save every half sim day and then shut down and reload to be…
  • I played a whole sim day late yesterday. I recorded toddler training and some other household members gained skills or worked their way through opportunities. Then I thought, to be safe I ought to save here so as not to lose anything. I still have 20 sims plus 2 pets in the household and it runs very smoothly but I still…
  • @Brandontaylor don't let the dislikes children trait put you off allowing a sim to have children. It just gives them a negative moodlet when around children and toddlers and they pull a face occasionally but still make excellent and attentive mothers. It is a necessary trait for the heirs to have in the Perfect Genetics…
  • A change of topic. Back to my video series on the Perfect Genetics Challenge. Over the past few days I've been working on the townie population of Moonlight Falls. I've moved a heap of them out to Mountain Lake and listed them in my spreadsheet and also cleaned out their overstuffed inventories. Then I returned to…

  • Somehow this got into the wrong thread. So I am moving it to where it belongs. Happy Simming.
  • The Launcher was designed to use Internet Explorer and that has now been retired. I think the functionality of IE is now in some other browser, possibly Chrome but I'm not sure. This is possibly what is causing all the issues with the Launcher lately.
  • The The only thing I can add to this is with my all disk (not Steam or connected to Origin) game, I used to have to have the ContentPatch.package file. Then one day I set up a new Sims 3 folder and I couldn't install any of my store content. This was a few years ago. So I downloaded everything again and since that time I…
  • Do you have anything inside your ContentPatch folder that is in you Sims 3 folder? You might need to have at least a file named ContentPatch.package.
  • I decided to try to install some store content that I have backed up and it installs. I installed the Al Fresco Market and a pair of adult female shoes successfully.
  • I have an all disk installation. If they have changed the purchased store items so they can't be installed without having Origin or its equivalent then I suspect I may find myself no longer playing Sims 3 once I need to start installing my store content again to play the game. The reason a lot of people went out and bought…
  • I just looked at the store and the buttons for store items I checked all say 'Buy Now' when they should say 'Download' for me. EDIT: So I had another look - if I'm logged in the buttons say 'Download'. I tried with two browsers and both of them say 'Download'. I will have a go at making a fresh sims 3 folder and see if it…
  • @DivinylsFan if you have an integrated graphics card then you may not have that line in your options ini file. But your computer may not be able to run the game for long with that type of card.
  • @DivinylsFan I think the user presets file holds things you've recoloured. All of the 5 Cache files can be deleted or not. They are replaced by the game if deleted. They are usually the culprits if you have game issues and deleting them can fix the problem. Many people delete them each time they load the game others don't.…
  • For the last few days I've been gradually cleaning up and recording the population of Moonlight Falls. This is the Perfect Genetics Challenge game. The game is on Week 17 Day 1. I need to add all of the sims in the world into my spreadsheet. I'm just adding the names, ages and addresses of the townies. Plus their LTW (if…
  • Hello. I'll have a go at answering some of this. I'd recommend saving a copy of your options.ini file somewhere safe once you have got your options set how you like them. This is because whenever your graphics card gets a software update the Options.ini gets replaced with it set back to defaults. There is one line from the…
  • I've been busy too. The first two shows went well. Next weekend we have three to do. In the meantime I'm working on my Perfect Genetics Challenge. I have 57 sims living in Mountain Lake now. 30 of them are townies from Moonlight Falls. The townies I moved to Mountain Lake are: Beatrice Crumplebottom, Bianca Crumplebottom,…
  • I use NRAAS mods but haven't looked for much in them unless I have a specific problem I want to fix. I have, over the years, had several sims I've played in performance careers and then moved them out to live on their own. Later on I've discovered they had reached level 10 in their chosen performance career. My sims in…
  • @Nikkei_Simmer you need a dedicated graphics card as well as plenty of memory for pets. When pets was released my computer stopped working for Sims 3. That’s when I learned about dedicated cards. So, since I was working at the time and the computer was getting old and I really wanted to keep adding content I got a new one…
  • The video is available to watch on YouTube. https://youtu.be/cOpTDEDsItw In this video we see James and Carla's new house and their family move into it. The children complete their child skills. Then we go back to Donna and Gary's place. Their toddlers age up to child and do their child skills. Then Cindy and Bill and…

  • I spent a good part of today working on my next Perfect Genetics video. I had a few mishaps with Error 12. I got enough video recorded to complete the video and will do that when I can next get to it. Tomorrow will be a big day for me and I won't be home much so there won't be time for me to work on the video until at…
  • I only ever see them at the Performance Park and it's the only showtime venue I tend to place. But I do place others sometimes.
  • On old simmer once told me about her worst start to a new game. She placed her new sim on the lot and it was promptly struck by a meteor. She didn't save.
  • I usually see Sim Fests at the Showtime Performance Park. I don't look for them though and tend to ignore them. I just place the park, it came with Showtime, and forget about it. I really only use it if I have a sim in a performance career and usually send my sim there to ask the proprietor to enter the career.
  • @texansky instead of risking deleting the lot I place something small, such as a rock, on it before bulldozing. That way there is at least one thing on the lot and it won’t disappear on you when you bulldoze it.
  • Hi @coco it's nice to see you and your gorgeous sim again.
  • I have heaps of them. Firstly there is Old Gertie McFluff who is a witch who 'accidentally' turned 15 of her least favourite friends into cats then was horrified to discover she couldn't reverse the spell leading to a video series where her adopted descendants will eventually manage to do it - I hope. When they finally…
