of the base game NPCs, it seems that the Nanny is the only on-duty NPC that it could lure.
in university; it has lured cheerleader, both kinds of mascot (though summoned a cow one through mailbox), and professor. the cafeteria NPC was not lured.
gypsy matchmaker was not lured either.
I do not recall testing the other University/Nightlife NPCs.

edit:: did test a Chinese deliverer; it was not lured.
do not recall testing Headmaster or any universal.

another edit:: a coach did come by; was not lured either.


I wonder if those other NPCs did not get eaten because they were not hungry when they came by and not tempted by the cake.
I learned about the Nanny the hard way. My Sim infant was taken away from her single father after the infant's nanny was eaten by the cowplant.

I download mods, but I don't create them. I am so awed by the talent in the Sims 2 community that I'm always saying, "Oooooh," which has left my lips in a permanent A-kissing configuration.

I've known about this for a long time, ever since I got BO's "Reward Catalog"-but thought I'd pass it on-that if it's left on the lot with all the points on it, (and the furniture remains, as well) they stay on it for the next occupant to add to it.
Which means that if there is a fridge on the lot that's partially full, you can use it (if it has enough points) to refill it.

And I've had lots with left overs in the fridge-including vegetables and fish from the previous occupants.

Edit: I forgot to add the link to this: BO's Rewards Catalog

Oh, SQUEE, SQUEE, SQUEE! Another thing I desperately needed but didn't know existed. Thank you Fran for posting that.

If anyone else wants it, here's the link (I hope I'm doing this right)

It's possible to burn food and then left in oven till it spoils.
Someone in Specter household served breakfast and then forgot about it, till I started to wonder where these annoying fly noises come from.

That is one of the most annoying things! I should probably whine about it on the Hacks-I'd-Like-to-see thread. Who among us would do something that stupid.

Welp, I just burned my dinner. I don't want to stink up the garbage can by throwing it away, so I'll just leave it on the stove or in the oven for the REST OF MY LIFE.

In Belladonna Cove, all the ancestors' graves are located at the library. I guess they figured Knowledge Sims often want to see a ghost anyway.

Whose Belladonna Cove are you using? In the Maxis version, the graves don't show up anywhere because they're assigned to the wrong neighborhood. In Tarlia's version of Belladonna Cove, if the hoodchecker is run before play all graves should be at the cemetery except for one at the art museum (I think it's Timothy Riley's wife).

Thanks to Crmelsimlover for sharing these rare Christianlov mods for TS2: Cpack editor with working face DNA fixer and Skin Selector Prototype. Instructions for adding custom skins to Skin Selector at post #37 here. Instructions for using the DNA fixer at post # 2662 here .

Apparently, if your lot is full and you can't get any more sims into it, (and if you possibly have creaturefixes and a mod that makes new witches not have the witch hats and robes) and a High Witch tries to cast the cat spell, you'll get a message that there are too many people on the lot and the cat needs more 'psychic space' to play.

did some more NPC testing with the cowplant. summoned most of the NPCs through the mailbox.
Headmaster, Grim Reaper, Therapist/Sim-Shrink; got them to come regular way. they were not lured.
Mrs Crumplebottom and Streaker were not lured. Grand Vampire, Diva, Mr Big, both genders of Slob; those were lured.
was not able to test University's/Nightlife's community lot NPCs.
not sure about Hunger being a reason; Headmaster ate the food my sims served.

had sims buy cell phones.
Child & Toddler can also have them in Inventory; though cannot use them. Child; does not make sense to me since they can use regular phones.
cell phones ring anytime their "owner" is called; and at least Adult sims could answer through their cell phone.

Vanilla version. Maybe they fixed it at some point?

This honestly makes me so mad. I'm playing a challenge where my sims currently have unlocked cell service but not landline phones, and the kids can't use the phone, like why???

If Sims are naked when someone calls them, their butts ring. Where do they keep the phones?

Not only that, but they take them into the pool, hot tub, regular tub, and shower with them! Those must be some pretty impressive phones! They are't even damaged by being struck by lightning or being frozen...and assuming the sim themselves doesn't actually die, I'm guessing even fire won't hurt the phone?
