  • Oh, man. And I was just getting into scripting. Swatting up and slowly botching a few attempts. Well scrap that now for a pointless endeavour. Locked in tuning purgatory for a while longer, I guess. Well, as Scumbumbo pointed out, early days yet,…
  • The game (normally) generates fake pregnancy sims to come in off the streets for your doctor to deliver their temporary babies. Once they leave the hospital, the new born babies no longer exist in the world. I've seen it many, many times before this…
  • Hi, guys. Just to help confirm, all my mods on MTS, as of last night, are now good to go with October/November. All present and correct minus one that has fallen by the wayside. Maxis have fixed the route fail issue when fruit punch bowls sit atop b…
  • As a means to explain what happening in my game more thoroughly, exactly what is happening in my game with each of the TS4 lighting settings. June 2nd patch notes say those players on Very High Lighting will have the new sunlight effect. Great…
  • I actually have that HWmonitor, and the accompanying CPU checker by same makers, but I'm just too used to calling them both Cupid (CPUID) I didn't cotton on when you first asked. My head was away, lost in the crazy realms of frame rates and possible…

  • Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790K CPU @ 4.00GHz PC gamer for years. Keep background processes to bare minimum as a matter of course. Vsync always on, screen tear without it. Game was set to default fps prior to new lighting, but messing about this mo…

  • You guys! I came here somewhat unhappy, but you've managed to chirp me up no end. Thanks. Now I feel like a right meanie for some of my opening comments.
  • hello to you too, egwarhammer. Nice to meet you here. Have you experienced the lag on large lots with a fair amount of windows?
  • I've tried all of those. I'm a dab hand at keeping any game in the Sims franchise in good shape. But this is something else. Yes, I have mods. Yes, I make mods for this game. This is a technical issue beyond anything I can currently do on my end to …
  • No, it's been hitting since last month when it was first introduced. I only mention it now because I see nothing in the patch notes regarding lag and lighting. Screenshot folder is empty anyhow.
  • Did he age up naturally or did you use a cheat to force age from child to teen? I have seen this "missing trait" happen when forcing age-up with a cheat. It also happens that if sim A learns the traits of sim B, then you change the traits of sim …
  • I think it's meant to be this way. To limit the amount of NPCs. Each venue will generate four bar NPCs, each to cover eight hour shifts over a twenty-four hour period. And each NPC, when you ask them about their career, are specifically tied to that…
  • That's what I'm trying to say. There is no permanent solution until either Maxis clean it up or a modder finally does. Place your bets as to who will be first...
  • Recently, this can happen if you move between several households without letting any game time pass - (Continually paused.) You might try to start a different household from your last save, only to find the game keeps going back to neighbourhood sel…
  • If you go into bb.showhiddenobjects, you can clear the "new objects" highlight by selecting the GTW hidden stuff. However, it is only temporary. Once back in normal play the highlights return.
  • I am seeing this, too, also in a mod free, fresh neighbourhood test game. It is also not just one drink stuck to the bar tender's hand, over time it becomes several. If the bar tender is reset, all the drinks end up outside the building on the front…
  • Is the coffee maker more likely to disappear when there is brewed coffee sitting in the pot? And it is more likely to vanish during or immediately after a save? I'm wondering if it has anything to do with the move objects on/off problem. When there …
  • Something certainly needs to be done in regards to the "move objects on" cheat. Many people upload lots to the gallery where they have used Moo extensively, all to good and pretty effect, and probably why you would wish to download the lot to your o…
  • The "Sell from Inventory" glitch has further problems to gameplay than just dropping stuff on the floor. You may notice after a while, if and when swapping households, that all items in the personal inventory of a sim have been moved to their family…
