Yes. Too lazy to edit. :o

Winning the Game
Don't be absurd. This is a Maxis game! What's to win? You and your sims can play unto perpetuity, getting into entanglements and trying to get out, and by the time you know it, it will be 3am your time, and you don't even have your teeth brushed...

My sims haven't married anyone but as far as they go are Romantic Interest. I also have a middle-aged couple with a teen son who had a baby without my control.

My question: Are Unflirty sims really unflirty? I have two Unflirty sims in my game. One rejected her neighbor's (an acquintence) first advance but once she found out they both were Family-Orientated, she accepted his second advance. Another was Good Friends with a Flirty sim. He only had to flirt with her once and she was all over him. She even Woohoo'd with him the next night; plus she had another Romantic Interest without my control! I thought they were going to be stone-hearted but they're as easily gulliable as any other sim.

You should add a crib to their house. They will be more likely to reproduce if they have somewhere to put the baby I think. Haven't tested.

Ok, Stupid question...

How in the world can you see the roof on a sim's house. I clicked the "go up a floor" button like 90 times and still no luck. Apparently it's invisible or something.. I've tried taking a roof off and putting it back on. And I've tried just changing the pattern to see if that would help but it doesn't. Is this just a game bug or am I not clicking a button I need to?

Thanks in advance. =D

You have to click the button (just like in Sims 2) that changes whether the walls are up or down and also includes the roof button that shows the roof. I can see the roofs fine when doing that, whether building or playing the game.

Believe it or not...I don't have that.. I have 3 options, Flat, Cut-a-way walls and complete walls... No 4th option to see a roof. =/

That is really strange because the walls/roof control is exactly like Sims 2 for me.

Are you in walls-up view when you go up to the roof level? If you are in cutaway view you won't be able to see the roof. In walls-up mode, you click up until you are at the level of the attic and then click once more to see the roof.

So I'm like, "Cool! What should I get? Brain in a jar... monkey's paw... ooh, pie!"

I thought you could have babies at home? But my mothers always end up going to the hospitals eventually if I don't make them.

Lol. Yes I've tried this as well. I've tired to see the roof in walls up, cut-a-way and flat. And making sure I've clicked go up a floor each time at least 10 times. Maybe something didn't install right or something. =/ I don't know... I can't seem to figure it out. I tried googling this question and it seems some other people are having the same problem but there weren't any answers on what to do to fix it.

I cannot figure out how to make a 'group meal' of something. My girl has an opportunity to earn extra cash by making a group meal of cookies. I thought it would be a serving of cookies but it isn't... Anyone have an idea?

My ceiling seems to toggle itself whenever I zoom in and out. Even if I have the walls down, when I zoom in close enough to the sims, the roof is always there, I've never had to make it be.

You can find seeds lying around on the ground - check places like the park, graveyard, around the outsides of the science center, etc (they're tiny and white and pretty hard to see unless you zoom in). I'm not sure about buying them.


You can buy seeds from the grocery store

Do NPC sims use custom hair? Maybe if they did I'd quit seeing all those cornrows everywhere

[edit] Wait a minute... where's all the custom hair?!

If you were a Sim, would anybody want to play you?

If you just stay at home and cancel the action when she tries to take herself to the hospital then she will eventually have her baby at home.

I've started going into other houses while my main family is asleep and making people marry their love interests and knocking them up. My town was dying out, so I needed to take action.

Though I found the first magic baby in my game, you know the kind that has only one parent in the family tree. So it happens, it's just not happening very often in my game.

Here's a stupid question can infant sims die?

The reason I ask is in one of my families they had twin girls . One of the infant's mood was always in red. I went to another of my families and played them for awhole and when I came back the infant with the red mood meter was gone. When I checked the family tree she is still there but her pic is in black and white like when someone dies. I'm not sure what happened lol I really wish we still had memories.
