Due to it being both the SW and the nanny I would look more to mods to do with babies-toddlers-children. Adoption type mods since the game might consider creating an adopted child the same as creating a townie.

Well then i’ll Have to look through tomorrow. It’s a recent problem so it must be a newer mod :/
But the only child related mods I can on the top of my head is the YA mods (which I should move over in another folder as I don’t play university as so :/ - idk if It’s only me but university gets really freaking boring really fast :/)

The only error I know of is one I used to get about the nanny controller. But, @OnayaW, try recreating the error with testing cheats on and let the game produce an error log. That may help figure out what's causing the problem.

It doesn't have to be related in any "reasonable" way to the thing that's breaking in order to affect it. It could also be a new mod and an old mod interfering with each other even though they have no "logical" relationship to each other; and they may only conflict when they load in a certain order, or even on certain kinds of systems. This game is sufficiently complex that chaos theory applies.

@OnayaW

Are you trying to adopt a child when the social worker glitches out? Adopted children are created *from* two random townies as parents for the face/genetics. So if you have no townies it will error.

As for the nanny, what is the animation problem? If it's that it's playing an animation for the third time, you can just cancel that one without any problems, you don't need to reset the nanny. She's probably just doing and idle bouncing the toddler on her hip, or the baby in her arms.

I tried cancelling but it pops up with the same question

Anyway, there is plenty of townies - mainly bc Paul - a sim I have - is woohooing them all. The Nanny was a one time problem and I found out why.

She had kicked the flamingo even though I have a mod there should prevent that.

Anyway, for the social service - if it can’t generate a baby from two townies I may go to my second solution.
Take a couple from the bin, make the woman pregnant, let her give birth and then kill the parents. It doesn’t seem to have problem creating children though (mainly bc there is such townies). Only babies which is what my nearly elderly couple wants :/ but I can just drop it.
They’ve already got plenty of children and teens in their hands.

Not sure for regular build mode plants, but Hydrobots definitely don't water seasons plants. That's the only thing I wanted them to do when I made them, and they failed. Sigh...

How do you change the age in SimPE? I want to make my CAS sim suitably middle aged, and I have a super long age length span mod so Sim Manip does not work well. I want to get my sim about halfway through the 'days left' thingy.


You can do it this way, right?
Mad Poster
#14485 Old 11th Jul 2018 at 7:23 PM
In the character data, there's an "overview" tab. One of the fields is "days left." Change that to the number you want, commit, save, and you're done.

The age bar may not tell you the right number of days to the next birthday anymore, because it was designed for the vanilla days left and this method does nothing to change that. But you'll notice it doesn't advance, either, until the days count down to a number it can handle, and then it will be accurate.

Does anyone have an answer to this earlier question?

Also, please bear with me, I've asked this elsewhere but not gotten a response after some time. I'm having trouble with julsfels OMSP controller resetting every time I leave the lot. I don't *think* it was doing that when I first used it. Can anyone tell me where I should look for the cause? It's very annoying. There are quite a lot of OMSPs on some of these lots.

Yeah. I should test it again but I noticed SimPE's memory usage gradually increasing the more files I opened up with it. I suspect it may not be clearing itself.

about career; one way to find out might be to test it in game.
or some chance of similar careers at various sites. if so, might download them and check the programming of those.

what do you think would happen to the economy of the sims world? i think massive inflation, mainly due to the cheats, just huge amounts of money popping up randomly here and there in the world....

Well, I was hoping that it was a stupid/random enough question that someone knew, but... I tested in the game and, yes, they walk, no, they are not reminded. So, good if you want your sim to be late to work a lot. Pretty good for my working poor "careers."

So does this mean I can finally get rid of the carpool :O? I always wanted to make my sims walk to work and pretend they're taking public transit.

I was editing a career in Bidou's and just picked the none option, so without a mod, you could do it that way.

Did the mod to correct the "Suave Sage Staingobbler" carpet ever exist? I mean... I remember something about it existing, and in fact seeing something about it on this site. It showed the uncorrected tiles with the red stripes, and then the corrected tiles that looked much better. So... was I dreaming or something?

EDIT: I WASN'T dreaming! "Suave Sage Carpet Fix" http://www.leefish.nl/mybb/showthread.php?tid=3307

Here's the fix - No wonder I couldn't find it here - it's on Leefish! So frustrating though, since I was racking my brain searching for it on google!

Ok, an accessory conversion gone wrong has left me with this going on, I'll try to be as detailed as I can:
When in Body Shop I choose a specific pair of sunglasses - notice that it doesn't seem to happen with the others, Body Shop either crahses or hangs.
It doesn't seem to happen in the game, I can choose that pair of sunglasses both in CAS and mirror and everything seems to be fine. I tried to create a new game folder (the one with neigbhorhoods, downloads, etcetera) and Bodyshop works fine that way, so it's something that has to deal with that specific file, possibly the mesh? What's the best way to deal with this problem?

Slowly moving steps into basic TS2 modding.
I will occasionally post my stuff at spicyplumbobs.wordpress.com, hopefully it's good.

I've had the same thing happen. Is it CC?

I followed this tutorial:
https://hermit-fox.livejournal.com/1495.html
To convert a piece of TS3 CC to TS2. The base mesh was from base game sunglasses, I think the same pair used in the tutorial itself.
I probably messed up something in the mesh replacement phase, the rest was pretty much exporting work.
How did you fix it? If it was CC you probably had to just fix the corrupted mesh, but in my case? Doesn't seem to depend on the game files either.

SimPE question. I'm suddenly unable to drag and drop packages into the program. I can't find a setting for it and have already tried the task manager > explorer.exe kill method. Is there anything else I could try?

I think I just deleted it. Perhaps you'd have better luck asking over in the creation forum.

I ended up fixing it, in a brutal way but that worked so I don't complain:
I backed up all the sensible folders like Cameras, Collections, Downloads, Neighborhoods, SavedSims etcetera and then deleted everything. Running the game recreated the files and once everything was done I replaced the folders I had backed up and it seems it fixed itself. I don't know what was the cause, but this method worked.
