I name all of my sims by hex code. Don't you think "00:0a:95:9d:68:16" is a nice name for a baby girl?

It's all or nothing, either the replacement custom names tuning file is used for all sims in the category under consideration (births, immigration, service sims) or it isn't. If you are trying to get a blend of EA and custom names in a world, one approach might be to keep switching the Custom Names options and and off throughout. Another might be to build a custom names file that includes both "kinds" of names you want to see randomly appearing on new sims.

Or have I misunderstood what you were trying to do?

I am looking at kurasoberina's skins and I am very tempted. There are HD and SD skins with quite a difference in file size. I am wondering if the HD versions would be taxing my system a lot?

It depends? I recently upgraded to 16GB RAM and picked on of kurasoberina's skins and grabbed an HD one. It looks good in my game (high Sim detail), although the rest of my PC is not the greatest.

Thanks! I have 16GB RAM as well, so that helps in the decision making!

Thanks for the reply. You've understood my query exactly. Just to clarify, if "Use Custom Names Only" being enabled means only using names from the tuning file, what's the source of names used by SP when this option is disabled?

I have a question about Cupcake as well: can it be made to stock the shelves with single servings instead of group servings?

00:0a:95:9d:68:16 would make a good plumbot name.

If the option is not enabled, then EA names will be used. Where in the game files those names actually are is I'm afraid beyond me. At least, I'm pretty sure that's how this is supposed to work.

No on the single servings except for recipes that only exist in single servings. But the current version of Cupcake (v6) allows sims both active and inactive to purchase single servings of food from the group servings on the racks and displays instead of having to buy an entire group serving each time -- in other words, a slice of pie or one sandwich, whatever it is, instead of the entire pie or platter. Or they can buy the whole thing at a much higher price. What's also different here is that inactive sims will shop the racks and displays to relieve hunger and they actually get to eat the food they bought, as opposed to the EA way where inactives shop to relieve fun and the food just disappears after being purchased.

That's perfect, igazor; thank you! I didn't realize Cupcake has been updated to have serving options and now makes NPCs eat (the latter is a major beef many players have with the bakery set). Now if only the next iteration of GoHere would come along--there are many venue ideas in my head waiting for it.

Yeah, he'll answer to "Mac" too.
