  • Nice photo. The glass roof pattern cast all over the room is certainly eye-catching.
  • (Quote) Actually, if you have the Storm Chaser Reward Trait, your Sim is immune to lightning. Normally, a Sim struck by lightning get a negative Moodlet, then, if still under that Moodlet, gets struck again, they will die. The Storm Chaser Trait, o…
  • I'm not sure Fortnite would be considered a Triple-A title. The designation has little to do with the quality of a game itself, but rather the combined reputation of a franchise and its studio. With Fortnite's current popularity, if Fortnite 2 came …
  • Yeah, with the Hypercharged power, you can set your shot up in advance, choose the spot for the lightning strike, then use the tilde key to pause and unpause to basically frame-by-frame to be paused when the lightning strikes. After that, snap away.…
  • (Quote) I have MCCC, and at least one of the hidden skills isn't on the list of Skill cheats in the MCCC menu. Rock Climbing is a Minor Hidden Skill and the only way to cheat for it is via console code. It's really strange, because mod-based skills…
  • My Sims random outfits got even weirder. I don't recall where it came from, but I have a CC set of head wings (like you might see on some supernatural anime characters) which are slotted to the glasses spot, so now a bunch of Sims are running around…
  • You're quite welcome. I always thought those lightning pics were random lucky shots, and maybe a few are, but I'm betting most of them are staged in a similar fashion. It's also got me wondering if the Hypercharged moodlet can be added via cheat. So…
  • (Quote) A Triple-A game is a big budget, big profit game in a well-known, well-sold franchise. Examples of Triple-A titles would be Pokemon, Super Smash Bros., Devil May Cry, God of War, Legend of Zelda, Resident Evil, etc.
  • (Quote) Indeed. I'm and offline gamer and a 30+ year console gamer. I hate MMOs and the toxic environments they typically create. If The Sims franchise turned into an MMO, I'd be out for good. If people want to play an MMO, they can go play one. Th…
  • They're still making new content for Sims 4 and no sign of a Sims 5 anywhere on the horizon. People are getting awfully jumped up over something that amounts to nothing more than a personal speculation. Might be better to just leave sleeping dragons…
  • Side note: My main issue with so many Aliens is the problem of Hybrids (Alien/Human mix). Frankly, they're a mess. They look silly and they don't have any worthwhile powers. I prefer, generally, to match Aliens with other Aliens so their offspring r…
  • Yeah, a setting in the form of percentage would be nice as well. I think the Gameplay Settings menu would benefit greatly from population control settings. Aliens and Vampires are supposed to be somewhat rare, in concept. If the NPC spawn percentage…
  • It might be something in the latest patch, then. I still don't have Island Living yet. That and Get Famous are the only expanded content I'm missing. BTW, I'm still getting new Aliens. I deleted 16 last night, but at least 6 more undisguised Aliens …
  • I've never attended a bar event night (alien or otherwise), but I've disabled Alien Night bar events. I hope it works. If not, thanks for the suggestion either way. (At least someone finally tried to address the relevant conundrum.)
  • Ummm.... what does wardrobe have to do with making the system spawn fewer Aliens? Does anyone know how to do this? Anyone know of a mod that can do this? I just want to delete some of the Aliens from my Unplayed Households and stop the system from r…
  • I've never gone to an Alien Night at a bar. They're just everywhere. They especially seem to show up at festivals in San Myshuno a lot, but are also wandering the streets as well. There's just too many and I want to find a way to stop them spawning …
  • Back on the subject of the books themselves, I get a lot of these references since I've read many of the RL books being parodied. I've read all 3 books in The Hunger Games, the first book of Game of Thrones (A Song of Fire and Ice), the first 3 book…
  • From what I looked up, "spiel" means a long story or speech, usually used to persuade. A rambling sales pitch would be an example of this. Basically, rhetoric. In a way, I could see that concept being related to "playing a game" …
  • Okay, I just did a search and came up with something unexpected. I think I know where "Spiel" fits in now. Quoted from Wikipedia... "With 1,021 exhibitors from 50 nations (in 2016) SPIEL is the worldwide biggest fair for board games.&…
  • I just read the description for Glutton Spiel. Definitely Hunger Games. Kids chosen from isolated post-apocalyptic communities to fight to the death... Plus the "Glutton" in the title is a food/hunger reference, plus it says "because …
  • By the way, my all-time favourite book title is in the non-fiction. It's called "How To Seriously Injure Someone With This Book." lmao.
  • If I recall, The Glutton Spiel is another Hunger Games spoof. There are at least 2 or 3 others as well. The Bladder Games, for example. Some things got multiple parodies. Game of Thrones got a few. (Game of Groans, Musical Chairs: a Song of Hot and …
  • (Quote) I've never fully explored that mailbox's options before. I was never keen on the idea of using a holiday-themed mailbox for a year-round house. However, I liked the overall style of the mailbox and wanted to see if anything was there I coul…
  • I actually just had an idea concerning the locking in of career abilities. What they could do is implement a Retirement system. Once you get to the top level of a career, you could have the option to "retire". At this point, all career-exc…
  • @invisiblgirl - The Pride clothes are 2 shirts in the women's and one or two in kids, not sure about men's but probably the same. They're 1 Tee-Shirt and 1 Tank Top in women's. The default pattern is a small rainbow flag on a black background for th…
  • Update to previous post. I found the problem with the New highlight. You have to click every version of the armadillo and alien head toys to get them to clear. Even though they're shown in a single-item swatch, they're treated as separate objects. P…
  • (Quote) Nope. Not taken out of context. You shouldn't take me too seriously either. "No such thing as too much" of anything is patently not true. I was being facetious.
  • I'm having a similar problem with Strangerville. Item's themselves aren't marked as new, but the category icons in Kids Decorations, Kids Toys and Miscellaneous Decorations are all still "new items" yellow highlighted. I even tried using &…
  • (Quote) It's not very immersive to have Sims suddenly "forget" how to use the scientific equipment they used throughout their entire career and find themselves so completely incompetent they can no longer use them at all. It's bad enough …
