  • This happened to me too! I thought it might be a mod (I was afraid I had forgotten to remove LittleMsSam's "Easter Egg Fix" mod, which she said to delete because it might be obsolete). My family of Sims found every special egg in the game, including rainbow and golden eggs, but no egg registered or fulfilled the tradition,…
  • For some reason they put all the new trees and flowers (some of which are gorgeous) in Buydebug. I hate that. You can easily get them though if you go on the gallery because some builders have been collecting them in rooms for greater ease of access. I haven't been to any of the festivals yet (which yes look pretty lame…
  • My sim's dog (Active, Loyal and Friendly) barks at the chickens, and they seem to cluck back at him, looking like they are interacting with each other. He has a thought bubble of chickens when he sees them, and they have thought bubbles of him. They definitely notice each other at least. At one point my oldest and…
  • I also noticed that you can feed toddlers in the high chair with their special meals (cereal, applesauce, ham sandwich etc) even with the Simple Living challenge turned on. Technically I think you should only be able to give them food from your sim's inventory. I am guessing they forgot about the high chair as well, or…
  • I do find computers take a lot of power. I had a couple of college roommates living off the grid, and the power was never functioning when they needed to write their term papers. I ended up having to take them to campus and having them write their papers on computers in the Student Union. I tried to fix this problem by…
  • I think you can disable the weather effects in Game Options, but I don't know if that disables the passage of the seasons or the growing period for the various plants. I suspect you will have to disable the whole pack to do that. Personally, I love playing Cottage Living with Seasons enabled. It rained so much in Henford…
  • I love this pack and especially the experience of keeping a chicken coop and gathering eggs every day. It's not that hard to keep the chickens happy. Twice a fox tried to sneak in and steal an egg and both times my little boy was able to shoo him away, once before he had snatched an egg, and another time just after (he…
  • Some people may like the pack, enjoy playing with it and yet have a few specific complaints or reservations about it. Why do people have to be entirely negative or entirely positive? Or are you saying that nothing positive at all belongs in the negativity thread? Asking because I'm genuinely unclear about how this is…
  • Iron Seagull showed a sim baking a pumpkin pie. It looked pretty nice. I think there was a pumpkin conserve and a pumpkin stew as well. But sadly the new pumpkins do not seem to work with the pumpkin carving table from Spooky Day, according to him.
  • Thank you for explaining; it was all very interesting. I agree that pets like cats and dogs probably wouldn't interact much IRL with the larger animals like Cows or Llamas. I was just kind of hoping they would interact with the smaller ones, especially foxes and rabbits. My experience with farms is limited to my visits to…
  • Hmm, maybe I'm not quite getting your point. My uncle's barn cats were feral and extremely predatory. They certainly could not be left alone in the vicinity of chickens (unless they were behind a mesh wire fence). They also did not get along with any dogs (which wasn't that much of a problem because his dogs were always…
  • I am happy with some of the cross-pack functionality in that Platinum Simmers article, like the fact that the cross stitch activity can be used in clubs, that cross stitches can be sold on Plopsy and that the weather in Henford on Bagley is so very English. But the biggest disappointment has got to be the fact that cats…
  • Top of my list would be Generations pack. However, we just got a family and realism-oriented pack in Cottage Living, so I don't think it is likely to be next. The next GP or EP might be a bands or active music/ singer/ performer career, which I would really enjoy if it was done well, with enough different configurations of…
  • I think all of the things you mentioned would work fine in a Gamepack focussed on Childhood. It should also include many more child-child and child-toddler interactions than we have now, like all the games that child sims in previous games could play (like Mary Mack, tag, cops and robbers, hide and seek, etc) and the teach…
  • I could not agree with you more. Even if we had some of the simpler love interactions from Sims 2 back (with similar animations, not the same old ones we always get now), that would be an improvement. From the flirty interactions, I would like to have charm, caress, goose, and sweet talk back. From the hug interactions,…
  • LittleMsSam has just posted a notification that many of her mods need updating. She also mentioned that the Auto Stereo System mod needs to be removed if you have patched because it breaks Worlds. Her final advice was to remove all her mods until she can check them.
  • You are making me realize I am too limited in how I play with my toddlers. I have never had toddler triplets (or any kind of triplets) and I have also never allowed my sims that have toddlers to have a playdate or to interact with other toddlers. They never seem to come to parks for instance and we don't yet have the…
  • Maybe this inability to interact with other toddlers has something to do with toddlers belonging to other families then. I admit I have never tried to host a Playdate event. (You are making me want to test this out). But I do know that my twin toddlers in the same family have no trouble at all interacting with each other.…
  • Maybe it is a glitch with the playdate event? I have twin toddlers and they have always been able to interact with each other. They can hug each other and babble at each other. As they gain communication skill they can talk to each other about toddler things just the same as they can talk to other older sims (they have…
  • Just a tip: any toilets your sim can make from the crafting table are also off-the-grid. One of them in particular looks very appropriate, like an outhouse toile. I also agree though that it would have been appropriate to have an old-fashioned porcelain wall hung toilet with the water tank on top in this pack. The one in…
  • There is an excellent tiny mod that sends you notifications of every IL festival no matter what neighborhood your sim lives in. It was created by Scarlet, who retired from modding, but another modder has taken it over and kept it updated (I think it is MizoreYukii). You can find a link to it on Scarlet's old modding page.…
  • I too am looking forward to the new canning system and all the preserves and ingredients it will allow sims to make. But it doesn't behave quite as it did in the Sims 3, in part because not every harvestable in the game (even in the base game) can be canned. Now, the EP is in an unfinished state, so part of me hopes that…
  • Yes, most of those dresses you mention I would call jumpers, not pinafores. But I am a North American, and what I mean when I say "jumper" is a dress that is like an overall or sundress which is worn over another shirt or a blouse (my mother made me wear a lot of these when I was a child). When UK people say "jumper," they…
  • Which pinafore dresses do little girls already have? I don't remember any that look particularly English or old-fashioned, none suitable for a Victorian child or an Alice costume. The jumper dresses from Eco Living and DHD don't work for me because they are too modern. By the way I don't think it is bad that the teens get…
  • I am really looking forward to this EP and I think it will be one of my favourites, right up there with Seasons and Get Together. However, that doesn't mean I don't have a few pet peeves now that I have watched some gamechanger videos. 1) My number 1 complaint is that there is no social tea drinking, with tea sets, pouring…
  • What's wrong with aubergine parmesan? If it is done right, it can be delicious. Personally, I wouldn't have thought of that as an especially British dish or as pub fare, though. Perhaps someone can correct me if I am wrong?
  • I would like to have burglars back just for purely nostalgic reasons. They were an interesting complication in Sims 1 and 2. I once had a Sim in Sims 2, just after getting Open for Business, who was barely making ends meet with her business and a robber came in and stole her stock. It was a terrible tragedy and the…
  • I love the clubs, and I have a lot in my game. Many of them have designated hangouts in the various community lots, which ensures they are always populated with interesting sims. For instance, I have a club called "The Giggle Gaggle" which is made up my highest level comedians (you have to be a goofball and have some…
  • I actually like the NAPs (except for the buggy ones like Sharing is Caring) quite a bit so I always have them enabled. But I do max them out to 4 in every neighbourhood, some by gameplay and some by cheating, and I always ensure that only the ones that I like win. Once all the slots are filled, they are very stable and…
  • Well she seemed to think she lost it. She played sad music, pretended to cry and put up a RIP message with the cow's dates. Maybe it will be returned to her household at a later time or something, but the lesson I took away from the episode was to return any produce, pies or animals to the inventory before festival stuff…
