there are actually 2 buttons for moving lots. one puts the lot into the lot bin; the other lets us place a lot in another part of the neighborhood/sub-neighborhood and/or to rotate a lot. be careful about the former; at least with occupied lots.

I sent a teen, named Emily Anderson, and from a poor family, to paint at the art park for a while. Several townies pitched up and painted as well - and then left.
Emily ceased the opportunity - some of those townies are talented - and sold two masterpieces.

Sims will freeze on the phone if you invite a Sim over and said Sim calls back just as they arrive on the lot. My guess is the game doesn't know what to do when 2 instances of the same Sim are on the lot. I was playing a patched base-game config so I don't know if it was ever fixed, but it was weird! lol.

ihate; the art park is a thing I built for my sims - just a small park with a small pond, a BBQ and lots of easels

Fortunately, I kept a bunch of stuff on some shelves in his barn, so I can use the item duplication trick.I didn't use AgeCorrect, so I don't think its that.


According to the creator:
"Dropped fruit does not spoil. If Sims fail to claim the fruit (or leave it outside their inventory) for longer than 48-hours it will disappear. No need to clean it up and no spoil fx. Only placing the fruit on a magisplay tray or on sale will "freeze" the fruit from disappearing."

I wonder if there is a snafu and the items IN our inventory are also disappearing after 48 hours?
Come spring, I'll harvest again, keep notes and see what happens.
I'm hoping it was just a hiccup in my game.

I love that idea! Better than just chess games.
Do you use a community skilling mod? I'm thinking it might be fun to have the mod, then my Sims can (or have to) leave the house to build skills. I think painting in a park with a bunch of other Sims beats staying at home painting alone.

So many things to learn; so few brain cells to process the info needed to learn things!

I do, SIMelissa, the one by Pescado (not sure if there is another one). It was a done deal for me when I found out about it, since I have always loved and abused that feature in Uni.

It has changed my game - Sims don't own many skilling objects these days. All the "municipal" lots have some skilling objects - there is the fitness park with the obstacle course and trampolines, the music park with instruments on a gazebo type of stage, etc. These lots are small, not fancy, since they are free (and the mayor ordered the architect to build lots to further education in a fun way)

No idea if this one's been posted before so sorry if it has. Yesterday I saw that sims can pull out a book and start reading it while they walk! I don't often use the 'go here' command so it took me by surprise.

It's the hobby idle for film and litterature hobby. I like it, except that Sims also do it when carrying babies which looks kind of disturbing.

If you have questions on how to use SimPE or WW, you're welcome to PM me.

But isn't that how you learn the parenting skill? By reading babies. :P

LOL. Reminds me of when Angela Pleasant in mine slid down the stairs rail while carrying her newborn son. Not the most careful parenting!

Thanks! I don't know what I thought that button did. Maybe just rotate the lot? I didn't know I could pick the lot up and move. That's so great! I have a custom subhood that only has eight lots on it because I ran out of room. My custom subhoods HAVE TO HAVE ten lots on them. So, it's been a real problem to my OCD.

Particularly impressive as she appears to be reading the book with her feet.

I've been going through empty lots in my new mini-megahood to see if any of them would be suitable apartments and trying to find good homes for some of the bin sims.

I discovered that 99% of the empty houses in Desiderata Valley were built by a 5 year old. They are AWFUL!! Big square boxes with gigantic cavernous roofs full of empty space. Dear me!! I've redesigned most of them now and they look much better

Every single apartment lot in Oakbrook is glitching. Should be a simple thing to fix, though. The last time I played an apartment successfully was not too long ago. I just have to figure out which hacks I've installed since then and figure out which one it is.

Actually, on second thought, this might not be so simple.

Dogs can scare hamsters, which astonished me as I've never witnessed such a reaction before. Even though I control pets through the cheat, I've not seen this option pop up (unless it doesn't appear for more amiable dogs, not sure).

One evening while my Sim was visiting the local pet store, this stray dog showed up and started barking at one of the hamsters. Aside from the hamster's usual activities it was freaking out over the harsh behavior. I think the dog also attempted to frighten the parrot but couldn't because the room the budgie was in was too small.

Edit: Yep, dogs can scare parrots, too. At the pet store, I turned on buy/build mode and moved the parrot cage out into the larger part of the store. They shower feathers, too.
