I am not sure, but I going to say that it is alphabetical and that folders and files are equal in the sort order.

I'm pretty sure the game reads the title of the subfolder then everything in that subfolder and then the title of the next subfolder. Of course, you can have subfolders inside subfolders, so the game would have to keep going "deeper" in order to read everything in the deepest subfolder level.

Maybe if you gave an example of what specifically you're wanting to know, we'd be better able to help. Normally if I want to ensure something loads first, I add "1_" to the beginning of its subfolder.

Rosawyn is right. The files that are in your actual folder called Downloads are the very last to be read.

Is there any easy way to find out what a specific outfit in the game's package file name is? I have a dress in game but I don't know which package it is, and I was hoping to kind of reverse engineer a WCIF for someone by googling the package name. Trouble is, I don't know which package drives it's existence in CAS.

Uh oh! My social bar is low - that's why I posted today.

I'd like to know that too, Charmful; it'd make it easier to remove broken things, like a dress with a missing texture.

One way I do it is through Wardrobe Wrangler, hoping the item actually has proper tooltips and images.

Edit: Would packaging a sim with the outfit work? You could put them into a cc-free Body Shop and narrow down your options from there.

My life is a series of incomprehensible sketches, illegible notes, and running away from angry reptiles. I don't enjoy that last one.

Is there a way to use the bandatron on only part of a lot? There's the pay door but I think Sims only need to pay once and a door doesn't always look nice.

I have a periodic issue with the The Secret Society that I am not sure I am handling right.

At University I usually run one of the Greek Houses and what will happen is that The Secret Society Limo will arrive and the NPC gets and comes into the House and then instead of "Arresting" the target Sim, the NPC will just turn around and get into the Limo and then the Limo leaves.

Sometimes the Limo won't come at all.

Either way, when this happens I have been using the Bat Box and going to the Nuke section, nuking the Scenario Controller (+AWOL HM) and nuking Sim Schedulers, then I proceed to rehire the Maid and the Gardener.

The next night at about 11pm the The Secret Society Limo returns and usually the "Arrest" proceeds as it is supposed to and the target sim ends up on the Secret Society Lot.

What I find rather annoying is that after a number of days of playing the same problem will re-occur and I will have to do the same routine with the Bat Box again.

So I have a several questions, is what I am doing the best? Why doesn't my solution always work? Why does the problem happen in the first place. Why does the problem happen again?

No unfortunately. What is needed is a pay turnstyle or a pay archway.

Yes there is! All you need is Bodyshop, and my favorite sims-related program ever, CatOfEvilGenius' filename tooltip adder. It's easier to use if you have your CC well-organized, because you have to manually add each folder with files (click the first file in the list, hold shift and click the last item to mark all of them and add a whole folder at once), but it can be used either way. I would recommend doing chunks, don't add all your CC in one go and then run it. Sometimes there are files that will make the program crash. It's fairly rare, only happened to me with 3-4 files and I've used it for years, but having been there I can tell you it's not fun to add all the files only to have to re-do it in chunks anyway to try and find the faulty file. Also, don't forget to tick "Change existing tooltips"-box if you want all files to be renamed.

Once you ran it on everything (or the relevant section, if you have well-sorted CC), you can load Bodyshop and simply mouseover the outfit in question and the tooltip will tell you what it's filename is. It's awesomesauce!

A question about Monique's Child Support mod. I'm currently playing the Curious household and Pascal received money from the Pollination Technician. Since there are no relationships or memories involved, can I assume this is safe?

I am interested in installing business runs you. The page says it requires:
autosoc.zip
autoyak.zip
bathroomusesyou.zip
macrotastics.zip
skillinator.zip

Are all of these actually required? I can't find skillinator in the ffs directory. Also, do any of them not play nicely with big mods like ACR and Inteen?
#10040 Old Today at 2:31 AM
Macrotastics is probably the only one you need. I've never had any real problems using it alongside ACR, wasn't using it when I had InTeen. Skillinator might be in the big zip file.

It can conflict with other mods (one of Sun&Moon's toxic herbs made Sims drop dead if you were also using Macrotastics, something about it changing illness).

They will all be in the Director's Cut. You can try them out - they all work with ACR well.
There are menus and objects which you can choose to use or not on different lots or in different situations.

It is safe. Hey, even aliens have to pay child support. Interstellar mail is much faster than regular snail mail, too.

Thanks, Fran! Weirdly, Pascal ended up paying child support the next time around, even though his daughter lives with him. Not sure why that happened.

@Zena-Dew-Drop , you'll miss out on some functionality if you don't install all the parts. I'd say the least needed is bathroomusesyou though it does help prevent people congregating in the bathrooms.

I have both Inteen and ACR. At one time I think I had all of them, but now I currently only have macrotastics. Didn't have any issues prior and don't have any now. Some day when I play for real (after I get my stuff sorted so it's easier to find and know what's what) I might put the rest back in.

IIRC one of the hacks listed as needed for business runs you was morphed into one of the other ones at some point and is no longer a separate package. I don't remember which one it was, but I remember looking all over for it when I wanted BRU only to realize it wasn't available because it was no longer needed.
