Yeah... NRAAS SP while at Uni, vacation or in the future... as Nancy Reagan famously said...
"Just say no."
That doesn't turn it all off all of SP, but it gets most of it.
The great thing about Uni is that you can level up skills, get a degree for it, and not age.

Sims are better than us.

Well this is the stupid questions threads... is dance together a romantic action between two non-married Sims?

Most of the time I create a Sim couple, but have never seen it. This time I created a single Sim. He works in the Fire house in Twinbrook and Blaise Kindle asked him to dance together. He accepted, most likely because they are best friends, but since Blaise is steady with someone else (I forget who at the moment), I'm curious if she would be seen as "cheating" for dancing with my Active. (He's not married or in a relationship with anyone.)

I feel so dumb, but this has literally never come up for me before. Usually I get as far as marrying off the CAS sim and having a kid or 2 and then getting bored or distracted by something shiny. These are my Nothing is Free kids and they have already earned their lots so they're quite skilled... I was really looking for spouses for them and some partying. They've spent their whole childhood and teen years skill grinding, so I thought they could spend their Uni time grinding grinding...

There should be no problems running NRaas SP in Uni World or any of the others. In fact, many of us find that new students are not generated as needed and professors are never promoted either without it. Others do not always seem to have this issue.

The aging of foreign sims, one day each at midnight, is a world by world option in NRaas Traveler once back in your homeworld. Not SP. Sims should not be aging at all, anywhere, when active play is actually in Uni or another foreign world (not your sims' assigned homeworld) as the entire game's aging manager would for that trip be shut down. SP does not have the ability to override that, the Death:Allow Aging option just disappears. Only Traveler can cut through it.

I do prefer that foreign world aging is on, but only when I've rotated into my "main" household back home so that sims across all worlds that I don't play as homeworlds will age somewhat evenly. For the homeworlds worlds I do rotate active play into and out of, then I would want foreign world aging to always be off or else they will get away from me. On Uni, when faced with a geriatric aging out student population, it's time to bring in some fresh blood with SP's Rapid Immigration. A bit tedious perhaps, but (for me) part of the fun and I don't want my current Uni students or those about to enroll to be able to date the same sims their great grandparents did. Others will have different ways of coping with the population there.

Regular dancing together is not a romantic activity, it's a social one. Neither is slow dancing, as far as I know, but the two sims do have to know each other pretty well and I've seen some of the same blocks on slow dancing ("Your sim doesn't want to slow dance with them") as on forms of romance, such as age blocking on Teen-Adult. But the result, the dancing itself, should as far as I know never kick up jealousy, cheating reputations, or other unwanted repercussions except for sore feet from being stepped on by an unskilled dance partner.

I'm only having a few people travel until there's a large enough population that in-breeding isn't a problem and I don't have to make over a whole bunch of puddings to look interesting. My problem is that this is the first time that I've used Uni this file and they're all old. It's a bit weird to see an elder doing a keg stand, you know? Samir just rolled the wish to brew all the chemistry set potions, so I'm going to set him to doing that and then make up a bunch of "Young Again" potions as a service to the community. I don't want the next generation to travel to France and discover the entire world is empty and dead. If I were travelling regularly then having aging on makes sense to keep things up across the worlds, but I think that since I'm spreading my travel out across generations, that the world should be fresh for the first travelers to see. (if that makes sense.) So after this semester, they go back to the home world and NRAAS>Traveler> then what?

On City Hall or an in-game computer, NRaas > Traveler > Ageless Foreign Sims > (select the connected worlds that you do not want to age).

Are household bills calculated solely based on the value of property, or are other things taken into account?
For example, how many baths/showers sims take, how often they cook meals, do laundry, wash their hands etc.

Property, depreciation, and possibly how often your sims have slept with the tax collector. With the SP Money add-on module, the rates charged can be set to vary by caste so different rates can be arranged for different ranges of net worth if wanted.

I want to do a complete restart for my Sims 3, so I uninstalled all EPs and the base game. ...I also need to either delete or change the name of the Electronic Arts -> The Sims 3 folder for it to really be 'new', right?

#7412 Old 16th Feb 2018 at 3:07 PM
Umm....
Yes. And make sure the registry entries were cleaned up.
But you can usually get a clean start with the Sims 3 -Just- by removing or renaming the Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3 folder unless there was something wrong with your game installation.

Although I suppose it's too late now to tell you that a complete reinstall of the entire game was probably not needed if all you wanted was a fresh start.

Is there a way to see an inactive's work schedule?

My Sim is in the Investigator Career, and I'm curious to know if there is a way to see an inactives work schedule both to avoid accidentally dragging an inactive out of work to talk to them about the case, and also do trash digging while an inactive is at work.

You can do this with MasterController Sim>Status>Career.

Or if you don't use MasterController but know the career and level of that Sims there are guides around that list all work schedules for all levels, like Carl's guides or sims.wikia.com

Thank you for the Information. I've used Master Controller for a long time, but didn't know about that function.

Eh, I figured I might as well do it. Although I've noticed my Sims 3 cover saying something when it's listed in Origin. But I can't read it, since it won't let me zoom in on the cover enough. (So, I thought there might have been something with the installation, despite clicking 'Repair Game')

Is there a (relatively) easy way to tell which EPs were used to create an unfurnished lot?

If the lot doesn't use any EP items then it shouldn't matter what EPs were installed.
If you mean whether there is an easy way to check whether any EP items were used, then the answer is no, I think. The Exchange does seem to have a system in place that checks for required EPs but I don't think that we have something similar available for us. And the Exchange is not fully reliable there either.

ETA: Aha, it didn't take long to find out what you were referring to, so I'll answer here: merely looking at the pictures I already spotted several EP items from AMB, LN and SHT, SN - SHT windows, AMB windows, LN columns, SN fences and I am not too sure about some of the wallpapers.

Extremely stupid question, but a while ago I downloaded a custom world called Vökurò or Vokuro. The question is: Why?
It's an island with two lots, and the rest of the terrain is unroutable almost everywhere. But something about this world must have been special enough to prompt me to get it.

Maybe you wanted to find the sailor who rediscovered the island (identified in the description) wearing that "pair of striking teal tights"

I'm afraid, no. It must have been something unique to the way this world was made, as I dimly remember that I saw it mentioned in a thread as an example for something; special terrain painting perhaps, good sculpting or particular lighting?
