  • (Quote) It's been happening since the pre-Moschino patch and has been logged as a bug, so if you want to pop over and hit Me Too on AHQ, here's the report: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/OPEN-Cameras-can-t-no-longer-be-placed-on-any-shelfs/m…
  • Well, Seasons came out after C&D so definitely can't agree. And even though I had no interest in GF (I got it only because it was super discounted), I ended up liking it & think it's a good pack. IL has issues for a lot of people, sure. Can…
  • (Quote) And that's great. Coding has been the boys' club for far too long (considering it didn't even start as such historically). But it has zero to do with how The Sims is perceived in the industry, how it's marketed, or who the execs think plays…
  • Well, it depends on what you're looking for in the pack. I ignored the prebuilds in Glimmerbrook because I always do that with premade houses anyway (for anything other than occasionally getting some design ideas). The variety of BB items is awesom…
  • (Quote) The priority & reason for the emergency push would've been the other two things in the patch, one of which was literally game-crashing. I'm guessing that the islands recolor/redesign was added now because they had it done & decided …
  • (Quote) Or like someone adds CC eyelashes to the game and somehow it affects rings on SIms' hands. (which, yes, I've seen mentioned, though maybe not with rings but something else entirely unrelated to eyelashes and it still baffles me HOW). Expect…
  • (Quote) No, it was about several people I've seen around the forums judging the pack based on their specific limited parameters (like, how fast can they learn all the spells) :) I love the curses, they make the gameplay that much more interesting …
  • (Quote) Nope. There's a whole world between hating something and loving something.
  • (Quote) Apologies, I hyperboled. However, people did say that because it's possible to max out a spellcaster that fast, it means the pack is useless and not worth buying. As a general statement about the quality of the pack, not just as how much th…
  • (Quote) For what it's worth, there's now an emergency patch to fix that (because it happened for all occults). Sad thing is, bugs do sometimes creep in after release, no matter how much testing is done. Not saying all the bugs present are like that…
  • (Quote) I think the big point here that those people aren't telling is "I did everything I personally care about in an hour" rather than everything the pack actually has to offer. I'm sure learning all the spells and potions can be done i…
  • (Quote) It is indeed an Irish name & that pronunciation is the only one I know ;) I'm seriously debating making her but I suck at CAS so :/ My background idea (well, one of them): what if her and Grace got into a duel that ended up in Aine dyi…
  • The pregnancy issue with the Emotional Stability potion is already a reported bug on AHQ here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-INPUT-ROM-Emotional-Stability-potion-removing-Pregnancy/m-p/8195479#M104195
  • (Quote) There's a bug reported with the clones: if you travel/leave the lot they're on while they're still active, they hang around. That said, it happened to me (my Sim even got a duel invite from his clone) but I can't find the clone anywhere now…
  • Trash cans and oddly enough, fridges. I remember the outdoor bin but way too often forget to add one indoors. The fridge is mostly because so many of them don't really fit with the kitchens & I get too focused on making the kitchen configuration…
  • (Image) CAS is most definitely not my fav place to spend time in but RoM is changing my mind. ;)
  • Voted the way I did because so far any bug I've encountered was more a frustration than anything else and the effects on my gameplay are minimal. (OP, it would've been great to have a "I have bugs and they affect my gameplay somewhat" opti…
  • The Good: - the weather: it adds variety to gameplay and makes the worlds more realistic and interesting - the calendar: so much easier to keep track of things. the ability to schedule a party (when you plan it through the calendar) for a specific t…
  • (Quote) This exactly. Normally I spend most of my time in build mode because that's what feels like home. And this pack has so much lovely stuff there. But when I finished a house with this pack and went to do a quick playtest, I didn't emerge unti…
  • When my Sim had it (at the same time as the uncontrollable charge one), I ended up with fire, a duplicated litter box, and general mayhem. I think it will only use spells that your SIm already knows so the end result does depend on that. Basically,…
  • (Quote) The gender division and how it's used to bully is so frustrating. Especially to me as a parent. My kid got called out for wearing pants from the boy's section - she was 8, the kid who told her that she shouldn't be wearing them was maybe 6.…
  • @Ceres_Meiriona the easiest two ways to fix the columns are: changing their swatch or placing a 1 tile wall piece somewhere on the same floor (the latter supposedly fixes all the columns on that floor). The wall height change messes with already set…
  • If a Sim is reading a book and you sent them to the toilet: (Image) (multitasking in TS4 continues to surprise me. This is the first time I've seen this particular combo ;))
  • I don't know if answering a question on twitter counts as going out of their way to tell us her name but I agree, she should've been either in the game at launch or added to the gallery by now. The Sages being different is a whole different kinda m…
  • I would vote yes, definitely. As others said, you can turn off rain and snow if it becomes too annoying for your gameplay. But it definitely adds tons to gameplay and adds tons to the game overall (CAS, BB). Plus, the hot and cold weather outfits ac…
  • I love everything about this. (also, OP, you definitely can build a flat fountain like that, but honestly, your way is so much more fun ;))
  • Went with Other because "all of the above". My main save is a family with a few couples households in the same save that I rotate to. My second most used save was a single sim for a long time who now has an adopted toddler. I think if anyt…
  • (Quote) The recent pack is an occult one that's not everyone's cup of tea, so the people who aren't into that theme will inevitably be thinking about the next one coming up. Especially with a leak about it surfacing. There are still plenty of peopl…
