Hey, thanks! I took a look at the Share Your Spreadsheet thread, but I'll take a look at this one when I get home (can't open zips on my phone). It suddenly dawned on me over the weekend that, instead of calculating formulas for motivation, credit worthiness, infertility, etc., .etc by hand, I could have excel do it for me! And, since I'm lucky enough to have a tablet, I don't have to give up my full screen either, and can record changes on there as I play!

All this I realized while I was trying to do something else, of course. I couldn't find my notes on my plans for a career overhaul and decided to do this instead. Oh, well, at least the spreadsheet should help me track income, when I get there. I think I'm going to start color coding my post-its. Maybe that will help?

Potholders can't be moved up and down on a wall. Probably the developers/artists overlooked to implant this feature after AL, which where it came from.

Not really discovered, but first time I see it happen: a lightning hit a tombstone at Gothier Green Lawns, by day, and the ghost of Sarah McCarthy was expelled from her resting place!


I didn't see the tombstone getting hit, unfortunately
I saw an unusual lightning, it wasn't white, it was turquoise. I thought it was my eyes, or that maybe I had never noticed before that lightnings were not really white. There was a tiny teeny lag so I expected to find a fried sim where the lightning had hit, but there was no one.
It's only a little later that I noticed the ghost and figured out what must have happened.

Sarah floated about for a while, then she must have gone "home" soon after. So they don't haunt all day like regular ghosts haunt all night.

That "Pet Reflection" is a thing

I found out that you can edit the text output on Monique's computer!

Which is exactly what I did-the "Donate money" got changed to: "Donate Money to college."

That's all I did but I'm pretty sure that you can change it to anything you like-the Red Cross, Girl Scouts, Salvation Army, etc..

I've seen pets react to their reflection through a bathroom cabinet, because half of the mirror was covered by the furniture.

My old cat Tiger used to hiss at his reflection in the mirror. He quickly figured it out, though.

In real life, I've witnessed the way my pets over time have reacted to their own reflections. For betta fish they will flap open their gills to look intimidating. Even females will behave as such but not as aggressively as a male would.

A case with one of my zebra finches years ago was quite hilarious, when I used to have a small mirror hanging inside the cage, She would charge at the mirror and shrill angrily towards herself, but she'd learn to retreat early in mid-flight before actually hitting it to avoid any injuries. She would repeat this action several times before giving up.

The funniest cat I ever had with reflections was my beloved Kat. His mother abandoned him and I bottle raised him. He was several years old before he ever saw another cat. As a result he didn't know what a cat looked like. When he would jump onto my dresser and look in the mirror, I could see his eyes search until he found my reflection. He never even noticed the beautiful kitty. He thought he looked like me.

My three cats would studiously avoid looking at the kitty in the mirror.

That the adoption memory isn't always the same - the text for adopting a child is different from that for adopting a baby/toddler. I appreciate these neat little extras!

Don't run HoodChecker while the neighbourhood is also opened in SimPE. I nearly had a heart attack when I saw "Sim instance ### is corrupted" over and over!

I have been using ihate's template for several weeks now -- and I love it!
I'm lazy, so I do my day to day tracking on paper with a pen: Household Name, Day Name, Day #, Season Day and any note I might need to remember for the next rotation. But I keep the majority of information--stuff that doesn't change on a daily basis--in ihate's excel file.

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

Sleep for two hours.
Sim for four hours, Fall asleep at the computer.... (Does THAT count as Simming?).
Wake up a few hours later, exit without saving, as several Sims died of starvation, general mishap, or old age, Children grew up, Teens missed the opportunity to go to college, some simply disappear.
Go to bed for 3 hours, wake up, Sim another 4 hours.........

Hmmmm, you sound like you "Simmed" yourself to sleep at the keyboard.
