Sometimes the hair mesh is just not even available anymore, and it just feels like way too much trouble either way for anything I have to follow a link to find separately. But I've actually got a specific sub-folder in my Downloads for sims that are going to get stripped of their CC.

Well, I see I got one Disagree on my last post in this thread, though I've no idea what that was for. Maybe for the ancient millionaire with the teenage bride. Well I can understand that some people might find that objectionable, but we can hardly say that it never happens.

Anyway, I think I can add at least a partial Disagree to my own post myself. Back when I was just starting to play, and I opened up the game for the first time, I went into CAS and created my teenage Sim Andrew (whom you all know!) I was just going t create him on his own, and add other Sims for him to interact with later. But CAS insisted that I give him a parent. So very, very hurriedly I made Gloria, his mum. I'm so glad the game made me do that. If I'd had my way, poor Andrew would have been an orphan.

As soon as I started to play them, I was impressed by how close Andrew and Gloria were. (Remember this was my very first time playing.) Chat, Play Red Hands, Friendly Hug, Family Kiss -- mother and teenage son were inseparable. They were always doing things together. I looked at Gloria's Fears Panel. "Have a bad conversation with Andrew," was about the worst thing she could think of! I watched their intense conversations over meals as they sat together at the little table by the window overlooking the back garden. The powerful mother-son bond between them became a major feature of my early game, and indeed has remained so ever since. I was, and remain, a relentless micromanager, but this love for each other was something that Andrew and Gloria autonomously taught me about. It certainly influenced how I played them. Gloria made a Herculean effort to help Andrew get back on his feet at school, when he got hopelessly behind with his homework. Later, when the army gave Gloria a (totally undeserved) Dishonourable Discharge, Andrew in his turn gave her equally solid help and support until she was working in a job that she enjoyed. They have let me know that, whatever betide, they'll always be there for each other.

So, all in all, while I'd like to be able to place teens alone, or with unrelated Sims now, I'm very glad that, back then, the game made me give Andrew his mum!

So at least a partial Disagree with myself!

I wonder if that's what happened to a random townie in Hazelton. He was completely bald and no matter what I tried, he was permanently bald. I think I ended up removing his eyebrows and pretending he had alopecia universalis or something.

I had that problem once and I was so desperate to fix it that I performed Alt Surgery on him with an identical version of himself with hair.

Though when I have bald townies due to missing hairs, they usually just grab another hair on their own the next time they appear, so I don't worry too much when I find one.

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

@Emerald1234

Two by BoilingOil that I like, first for the Read-To Thing BO - Curb All Auto Read-To.package and for other Annoying things about Toddlers BO - Less Toddler Annoyance.package

I have a number of MODs and these have never caused any problems. Some of Cyjon's Mods have caused problems for me and I like BoilingOil's better. Besides if you have a problem with one of BoilingOil's Mods he will most likely fix it, and he has done that for me.

Being in enough pain that even the thought of playing TS2 exhausts me.

Okay, you can't tell me my Sims don't read this forum. I have played the Newsons at least a dozen times in different neighbourhoods, probably more, and it has always, always been Fortune-aspiration Gavin who insisted on staying home with the toddlers while Family-aspiration Ginger went to school. I post this, and what happens? Just as I had decided to go with the flow and let Gavin be the one to stay home, they up and decide to do it the other way around.

The poles on awnings. Stupid stupid stupid! Drives me nuts that they are always one tile from the edge, so if you want an awning over en espresso sales counter, you have to make it two tiles wider than you actually want or get stomping.

If you have questions on how to use SimPE or WW, you're welcome to PM me.

I posted somewhere about how Gavin insisted he stay home the last time I played them. So it can happen.

I've been playing a heavily modded game for years with mods created by both CJ and BO - I like them both. However, not all mods they have created work well with other mods in my game. This is why the HCDU is so important - I run it whenever I add anything to my game. It's also equally important to know how your game responds after added something to it.

Since I play on an iMac, I can't use the HCDU, I have to test out the Mods but testing what I added recently first, or test using 50/50, and then I change the load order and then try and see, if changing the load order does not help I just remove the offending Mod. For example I figured out that S2L_teen_woohoo_BASICBONVOYAGE.package needs to load before Squinge's Adult PregnancyWearAnyOutfit.package in order for the PregnancyWearAnyOutfit.package to work.

Also since I have on BV and older I think some Modders say that their mods work with my setup, but they don't. Anyway two Mods of Cyjon's just fail with out conflicting with any other Mod in my game, one of which is CJ-SelfPreservation.package the other I don't remember the name right now. Unfortunately Cyjon has stated that he doesn't fix anything of his, while BoilingOil had one mod that I had problems with, but BO uploaded a fix soon after I had told him about it.

I do use a lot of Cyjon's other Mods though.

I have never found that BO's Mods conflict with anything I have, just the one mod that needed a fix and that BO fixed.
