View Full Version : Making one Sim on a lot MUTE?
19th Jul 2010, 4:51 AM
Hey hey! So, I'm making Sims of my original characters, finally. Been wanting to for years, but could never get the game thanks to my mum who still tries to control my purchases even though I'm an adult (I really wanted that Toy Story 3 Lotso keychain... ;n; But I digress). Finally got it at a thrift store, nabbed some expansion packs, and got ready to play. Then my hard drive died. :/ The other day I picked up my inheritance from my father's passing, which included a very nice computer. So, now I can start to play. I've created my main man, Jarett, and I was all set to make his lover, Azure. I went downstairs to get some ice cream first. Then it hit me: Azure is mute. Awwwwwww crap. Jarett having a manly voice is annoying enough, but I'm fine with it. The question is...is there any way I could make Azure mute? o: I'm going to be changing the height of these Sims, in case that affects anything...

I'm actually curious, too. I also have a mute oc character but she's too talkative in the sims; to take it a step further, how do you change the voices out-right? i kinda want my robot sims (that aren't servos), to have the servo voice overs, and Pyramid Head to sound like the grim reaper.
there is a line in SimPe about voices, but fiddling with it yields no results.

Um, aside figuring out the fiddly lines in Simpe (I'm sure we have a tutorial on changing their voices) you can always choose to just mute Voices in the sound section. Even if you do manage to kill the sound effects from one sim, they will still do the talking animation and have a speech bubble. I think this is where imagination comes in... good luck!

So...wait, can I mute the voice of just that one Sim and leave all the others unaffected that way? o: If so, I can just pretend he's using SSL...Simlish Sign Language xD

No, there is no option to just mute one sim. You can probably find the values in SimPe for that character file and edit it's voice, and maybe if you pick a value that isn't assigned to a file it just won't play without throwing an error. This is all just speculation though. Look for a tutorial on changing their voices.

What have you tried doing?

ive tried opening the sim in SimPe via neighborhood browser/sim browser and fiddling with the voice line (in other settings, i believe) even changing a male voice code to another, different, male voice code you get no change in voice.
