Clicking on the spa tonight I came across, “meet with matchmaker” what exactly does that entail?

So when he started running about the place I cheated him into CAS, changed him to female and renamed him Cosima. Will that work? Or will it cause my game to throw a fit at some point?

After she'd been in CAS Cosima briefly took on human form, although she still had a light over her head and later she reverted back to doll form. And now I'm very curious to know what she will look like when she turns real.


When they are toddlers you can click "rename doll" and you get "give boy name" or "give girl name" You can then name them what you wish. I tend to rename them to pretty sounding words like "Hesper" rather than the game's suggestions which seem to go towards "Chuckles."

I've noticed that I had no luck getting the forbidden fruit seed when doing a gene splicing experiment at the science station when my sim had no human sim DNA sample.
But right after I got a human sim DNA sample success, twice.
Do you think you have to have a human sim DNA sample to get a forbidden fruit seed? Is that why Carl's Guide says that the baby plant sim is the same gender as the person who harvests the baby plant sim? I know that isn't true, but it would be if your sim leveled up on the science skill and still had his own DNA samples in his pocket.
Edit: sim had only female DNA in his pocket, got two girl babies, both aliens at 50% alien DNA (more or less) like himself and half human sim (not plant sims).
So...
The gender of the DNA in the sim's pocket determines the gender of the baby.
The baby has half of the picker or cloner's DNA (not sure which) and half of the DNA in the pocket.
If aliens, they are not plant sims, but half alien, half human sim.
Everyone but me knew this.

Sims are better than us.

Is there a mod or some way I can get rid of the whirly-gig things that appear over sims heads when they go somewhere as a group or on a date? Using the hideheadlineeffects cheat doesn't work and I really hate them. Whose idea was it to put so much crap sims' heads in the first place? Sheesh!

Yes I can edit them out if they bug me that much ( they do), but if there is a way not to have them in the first place, all the better.

Well, if the grade is horrible when the kid grows into a teen, I believe it's more likely to develop a 'bad' trait upon growing up. I think social services might warn the family to fix the grade, too, before they take the kid away. I'm not sure.

Can my sims stable their horse off-lot (on a community lot or something)? My sims live on a fairly small farm (30x30) so with the horse being rather noisy and running around as horses do, it got irritating really quickly. However, my Equestrian sim really should have at lease one horse. So, can I have a horse stabled elsewhere? I have all EPs and patched to 1.67.

Yes, you can stable your horse elsewhere! However, for it to work optimally, you might wanna look into some mods. For example, I have a mod that restricts the horses from autonomously going home. They do that all the time, especially if you switch households, which can become quite annoying. I can't remember where I found this mod, but I'll look into it. At one point I also had a mod that allowed you to stable horses on other community and residential lots, for a fee. I can't remember where I found that either, though haha.

Not gonna lie, this suits my style of play perfectly and I want this mod! Seriously, thanks, they're both mods I would like have.

Found them! Without you telling me exactly what I was actually looking for I doubt I would have found either of them. They're both here on MTS; No autonomous Go Home for horses by KittyTheSnowcat and Horse Boarding Service by pjsutton.
Thanks again.

Hello,

Haven't been to this site in a long time, it's great to see it's still so lively.

I started playing again recently and picked up Generations. I love the video camera but one thing has me pretty confused. After making a home movie, apparently I need to have a sim watch it on the TV rather than being able to just play it myself. As soon as they stop watching, they shut off the TV. I'd like to use it similarly to the digital picture frames that allow you to just drop in pics and it constantly shows them as a bit of decoration.

I figured it would be one of the first mods to get released for that EP, but I've been unable to find anything. I see tons of threads about how to make a custom TV channel but I'm pretty sure that's not what I'm after.

Now I feel like I'm missing something obvious and being stupid, so here I am, in this thread.

One other thing seems odd. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the orange circle icon at the right side of a button supposed to indicate that it's an action the player can make, rather than a sim? For example, opening a fridge, book shelves, and the digital frames, but the home movies button has one too, which is adding to my confusion.

Thanks in advance for any info.

Is there a way to give a ghost you created in CAS a different/better tombstone? Because they all start out with the tiny one and I'd like for them to have something fancier.

If an Active Sim uses the Toadifcation spell on an inactive, how long does the inactive stay a toad? (Trust me Sunset Valley is not a good place to be right now with my homicidal active running around. Hank got off light being toadified instead of being murdered.)

In my experience, they stay that way until someone kisses them. I had toads running around town for ages.

Aliens are a bit different from the other occult states. A sim is an Alien if their Alien DNA is greater than 20%. This can be set or changed on a sim using MasterController, under Sim > Intermediate (MC Cheats add-on module required).

Just keep in mind that there is an error in MasterController when it comes to the numbers. The UI says and allows a range from 0-100, but this is wrong. Entering 100 will give an Alien more than 100% alien DNA, 10,000 I think. The actual range in MasterController should either be 0-10 or 0-1 (I'd have to check because I can't remember it now).

(And, yes, I did report this quite some time ago.)

I have this peculiar problem lately. Sims outside the home lot are becoming unselectable. Is this a sign of save file corruption?

Where do Sims hang out in Hidden Springs? My active came back from the future and has an opportunity to play for tips, but all the places I look there aren't many Sims around and the ones that are there aren't giving her tips.
