If you use the gable roofs to create "fake" walls, you'll have the problem of the game not treating the rooms you build out of it as being indoors, so it'll be exposed to the weather. This game guide shows you how to convert those fake walls into real walls in order to weatherproof the affected rooms. A number of premade houses, like the Pleasant house in Pleasantview, and a few lot bin ones, have this problem (They were made before Seasons though, so do forgive EAxis for this one).

rephrased question/questions::
which file in Program Files directory contains the shipped version length of semesters? if a PACKAGE file, which resource/resources in that file?
and seasons?


unrelated::
awnings; what are all of their functions?

the AquaGreen Hydroponic Garden (Slacker reward); does it affect Garden Club scoring in any way?
any career reward besides the cowplant (Natural Science reward) influence Garden Club scoring in any way?

greenhouse roof; is long gable its only shape?
greenhouses; can same greenhouse have different colors of greenhouse walls/roofs?

Since the quote mentions the Pleasant house, I can tell what they mean by "fake walls". In that house the FIRST floor has a roof-section with a flat side, one on each end of the house (where the girl's bedrooms are). Then what the builder did was use the "flat side" of the roof as one wall of the bedroom. Then they would have erased the "flat side" of the roof-section with the wall tool, and rebuild it as a full wall. BUT the game still sees the section that WAS the flat side of the roof section as just part of the roof, NOT as a wall. In Angela's room that's what it looked like, but in Lilith's room I could see a wall built in FRONT of what looked like a wall (but it was really the roof "wall") so I took out the front wall. Now BOTH girls freeze at night.

I think I fixed it but I want to double check anyway before my sims die of heat exhaustion in the summer

Lets see if I did

So where I have those four windows on the second floor, I knocked those walls down and re-put them up. (Did the same on the opposite side) Then I had to re-roof the chunk that was missing on the top of wall to the original roof. Am I correct?

Do I need to do anything on the north and south end of the second floor?

From what I can see it looks like it is fixed.

The easy way to tell if your walls are walls or roof, is to hit the clear all roofing button. If it's a roof, it'll vanish.

Then you'll want to hit undo to get your windows, etc, back.

Sure, I use this one here: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=302233 modified to be longer hours rather than shorter ones. It's a fairly simple BCON mod, just edit the time in grading period and grace period hours lines to your preference. I do pretty exclusively use dorms, I can't vouch for how/if it works in rented uni housing.

I know this was a few pages back, but that wasn't the question I was answering. I know that there are mods which can be used to manually adjust college and season times, but the poster was looking for mods which adjust the default span of time without the player having to do anything. We were both right, we were just answering different questions.

Edit: Although Mattie's link seems to have managed it. When I tried to change this it didn't work for me so that would be interesting if I ever wanted to play longer semesters.

Edit2: Now I see Mattie's comment about semester 2. Oh! That is interesting. It's very likely that I didn't think to push them into the next semester to check.

Does bathroomusesyou nuke the naked emitter? I've noticed that my Sims have stopped screaming at each other recently and it's the only hack I've installed of late.

Also, did anyone else have issues with the O'Mackey house in Riverblossom Hills? My sims keep overheating when indoors. Want to rule out a structural issue. I hate doing 50/50s.

I've never had problems with overheating in the O'Mackey house, BUT it has been a long time since I've played it and I usually don't have summer in Riverblossom Hills. I would backup and test with no cc at all if they're overheating and it's not even summer.

As for Bathroom Uses You, I'm not 100% positive since the description doesn't mention it (I spent a good half hour tracking down the description too, so let me know if you need it) but I would imagine it does nuke the naked emitter since the intent was to make sims smarter about using bathrooms.

I checked out an unplayed O'Mackey house in my game. I can't see any structural problems that would cause overheating. Have your sims been doing anything that would get them overheated?

It's been awhile, but if I remember correctly, she did. I think her hair was even the same color. I've also had someone marry the music hobby girl, the one with the short blond hair. Her replacement was the same as well.
