  • I like that some classes are very close. They could not benefit much from a 30 minutes break anyway, so it's better having that time added to their freetime later in the day. I normally plan their day in advance, preparing schoolwork etc the day before. I normally follow 6 students in a residential lot dorm, so I keep note…
  • Yea, I think this must be an unintended effect from the lifestage finetuning. EA might have forgotten to adjust the Athlete extra days accordingly. If this was my game, I'd just send that sim off at a certain age - 188 years/days is way too much unless it benefits a particular story in your game...
  • looks like there is again a new Origin update...
  • Is this delivery limited to the new App, or can anyone get them still? Pls ignore, I figured it.
  • Just curious, is it not possible to uninstall the App? I got my game repaired/patched, but I did not install the App, and am still playing offline from that old desktop icon (.exe). I can't say for sure that I won't need to "repair" the game again when the next patch is out, but I expect that I won't need to. I think…
  • It's sure frustrating not being allowed to decide when to patch our game. I'm glad that both my fave mods were upgraded with the HSY patch and were not affected by yesterday's repair. So, I think the forced patching at least won't cause new problems re mods. At least not mods that were updated recently.
  • And I'm utterly confused... ;) I don't want my game to change their preferences like that, or did you direct it to happen?
  • My game was auto patched, too. I first thought it didn't, but it turns out I have body hair as well as new cell phone layout, so here we go... At least my can't-play-without mods were updated.
  • I used to name them, often using one theme per coop etc. But learning animals grow elderly rather quickly I stopped naming the typical farm animals that are there for business purposes, but still name those that are more like pets, or at least that the household will keep until the animal dies. I rarely use those names any…
  • Thanks. So, then I will just ignore it. Yupp, would be better if it was not there, but ma be they thought it looked bad with just 1 option... I do miss my CC body hair a lot. Ie EA arm hair comes in only one version which is rather heavy. I'd like to add a little arm hair without thinking of werewolves...
  • Update: body hair is indeed available in CAS, so my game *was* patched. Hm, so why did I not find any UI regarding wants/fears? Are they not thee for already existing sims? Just clarifying that I find no trace from the recent patches, although Origin repaired/updated my game for 30 minutes. I think I should have found…
  • I never had anything on automatic. And I can't see anything in simology panel related to wants and fears, so I'm happy to guess my game was not patched :) UI Cheat mod is not working though, but the creator normally is very quick updating it, and I can always build etc while I wait :) So, if I gt this right, my game was…
  • Sometimes I use the name of the fake sender of spam email as name for a sim :) For a period I got tons of such trash mail and had to come up with a way to benefit from them...
  • My game is repaired, but I see no button for Patching, so I assume the game was patched as well (without really asking me). Not sure though. Loading game now. Not sure what bugs I should worry about, is there anything particular I should look for, or avoid even? I guess there's something about wants/fears that is easy to…
  • Such an eventful day! Drama and more drama! I'm in the process of repairing, and it's kind of exciting not knowing whether I will be able to play my game anymore this week, or not... This might become more intense entertainment than the game itself, lol.
  • Thanks. Oh - it did not patch? Perhaps I will need to try the repair then. With some luck offline will work without patching. I really dislike the way they simply roll out a big change with no warning. I guess I'm not the only one being able to play one hour now and then, but like tonight that hour was stolen by backing up…
  • I had something similar few years ago. CAS would occasionally give sims the wrong gender voice. It happened in creating the sim though, so it was easy to fix. This was long before the recent gender/sexuality focus was added. Will you get more voice options if you use the cas.fulleditmode cheat?
  • It's not working for me. Rebooted computer (which took forever to start). EA, why are you doing this to us, and why are you doing it without even a tiny warning? I'm not patching my game, meaning I will not be allowed to play? It worked fine last night, today nothing? I don't want the App either, why would I need it when I…
  • Is it no longer possible to play the game offline? :open_mouth:
  • Awesome, thanks!
  • Thank you! I've since this thread learned that the problem was probably caused by Blogger no longer accepting links to my site because they were http and not https (seen as safe, although I have no idea what the difference is technically). The site is now set to https and I guess old links from blogger will work again, but…
  • Wow and thanks @Chicklet453681 ! This was very helpful, and thanks for taking the time to write all this in detail! I managed to replace those two files needed, and the relief details are gone, yay! You just made my day - thanks a lot! :)
  • I too had this problem in the past, lately I mostly avoided those trims. I think I did better if I waited adding them until the building was complete. Often their status changed if I kept building walls after they were added. Mostly I had problems using them if the house included a room spanning two floors. I think they…
  • I patched about a month ago (before the HSY patch) but still get these notifications. Did not check whether they are still for strangers though, but because I play 100+ households, I guess there will e plenty of these even if unplayed NPCs are no longer involved. It's not a huge problem, more like showing what direction…
  • I do enjoy my game very much. However, I've noticed that recent updates seem to turn it into a game that decides things for us, instead of letting us decide for ourselves. I don't need the game to surprise me. I'm more into a sandbox game where *I* decide personalities and events, without the game trying to throw in too…
  • 100 years ago I think it was quite common to become young adult (and even marry sometime) at 16-17. In modern time lots of YA wait to have one child until pushing 40. I guess it takes more freedom to being able to see the entire world, we are global while our ancestors were often stuck to a small farm. In 100 years from…
  • I don't have the pack, but I read that students tend to change into their cold/hot wear. I guess you will need Seasons for that to happen, but if so, one start would be to add the thermostat object to the school building. EA never add anything that is not from the basegame or new pack. If your problem is not temperature…
  • The purrfect desktop image! :)
  • Not quite sure... most packs did influence my game in some way. But I recall Seasons revitalized everything. Not just because changing seasons and weather makes the worlds change, but the calendar somehow was what I needed to get back into the game. I did not even know I needed time management before I got it :) That said,…
  • I read that CC beds might cause actions to get ignored. Get rid of all CC beds and see if it helps, they are officially broken.
