I know those things can happen in a none corrupted hood, but not several times in a play session. Let's just say that I keep my fingers crossed that I can finish this round without any major trouble.

As I'm going to start a new hood, I'm building completely new (and roman) houses for my families. But letting them evolve through the generations seem like a pretty neat idea. May keep that in mind for future transitions.


I had similar animation problems! For awhile I also had sims dropping babies randomly or stopping interactions to jump--I discovered that some of my CC was corrupt and on one lot there was a corrupted tombstone/ghost that would cause people to 'get scared' pretty much all the time. In the end I was able to fix it by deleting some CC and removing all my gravestones to graveyards.Now I don't get fright deaths, though

Although, if you are using the neanderthal clothes from MTS you should be fine as they all have pregnant morphs.


I have inteen I can't seem to find any that are compatible with inteen, plus maternity clothes doesn't seem to work for them, so they never look pregnant.

In regards to the mod, SUPPOSEDLY Squinge's mod will work with inteen, if it loads after inteen does. Or so says a bunch of random sims 2 users. If you want to try it, back up your files first just in case.

In regards to sims looking pregnant, the mesh has to have a pregnancy morph for the sims to look pregnant. A lot of people will put one on thier stuff, but not everyone, even EA, will. Some of my sims waddle around with no discernible belly. Or with half a belly if a top or bottom has a morph and the other doesn't. ~VP

I agree for my challenge i say 5 couples fall through a misterious time vortex to the prehistoric so it makes seince for them to have normal cloths and the normal stuff in the sims 2 can look like prehistoric time stuff

I know that there is a inteen compatible version of squinge's mod out there because I use that one, too. But I don't have the time right now to look for it. As for maternity clothes for teens (if that's what you mean, Totallyshort?) that's not as easy. Teens cannot wear their normal clothes during pregnancy even with Squinge's mod. As far as I remember you can just use those shipped with InTeen. For the one pregnant teen I had in my challenge before deciding I don't want pregnant teens after all (mostly because I changed their life span from 16 to 8 days) I replaced the textures for the base clothes that came with InTeen with more neanderthal-y ones in one of the Inteen packages (don't remember which one). But I sadly can't share this with you as their policy doesn't allow it. Maybe I could see if I still have the textures (even though they're far away from being good :p) if anyone else needs them and knows how to replace textures with SimPe?

Or, just delete the file that contains the Inteen maternity outfits (file D) - if the game can't find the maternity outfits, then they will stay in their regular clothes, and show pregnancy if those outfits have the morphs. This is what I do and it works fine in my game,

I will try that, thanks! I had heard that having pregnancies that don't show can cause the game to crash, but I know that I have clothes with preg morphs that would be more fitting to the neanderthalithic era. Although, I'm almost into roman, so I could just look for roman replacements.

I might try to do that for teens, or just remove inteen for now. I'm currently aging them up at 9 days, so I don't really need them to be able to get pregnant/married as teens.

That being said, I think it would also be fun to have a communal page where we could share photos, showcase blogs, and spotlight simmers more efficiently.

Thanks, and Neanderthal on! (although I know everyone is well past that point)

Hey- I missed this! Have everyone checked out the facebook page yet? Nice Idea, SwallowTail!

FREE DOWNLOAD OF THE SIMS ULTIMATE COLLECTION THIS MONTH FROM ORIGIN

My sister told me about this and I just did it. Origin is offering a free download of the ENTIRE Sims 2 Collection (all expansions & stuff packs) on their website/app. Just log in with your credentials and go to My Account and Redeem Code. The code is this sentence - I Love The Sims. Hope that works for all of you. I haven't ever had most of the stuff packs and only installed Pets once. Never had Apartment Life or Bon Voyage. This might interfere with downloads (mods and such) so redeem at your own risk.

I have 1 question, how do you prevent a sim from becoming a plant sim? It drives me crazy calling the matchmacker to buy 10 potions add 600 bucks to the familyfunds and use it everytime they spray their crops. Any way to prevent it other than not spraying a lot?

#2036 Old 25th Jul 2014 at 5:55 PM
I'd suggest searching on here/googling for a no plantsim mod if you want to get completely rid of them. If not, the only thing I can think off is letting your sims have smaller gardens which reduces the amount of spraying needed and sending them to fish instead.

having ladybug houses will reduce, but not eliminate, the number of bugs so there's less spraying ~VP

I found a mod that gets rid of plantsims but i will have ladybug houses just to be safe and make it easier to take care of plants

You can also rotate who is the sprayer. Extended exposure to the spray is what makes a plant sim, so I have the adults take turns spraying and when a child can do it, let them until the next child. I think the greenhouse would help too since bugs might not be able to get in. But I don't have greenhouses enough to know if there is a difference or not

I came here today to say good-bye. I am uninstalling the games so that I can install the Ultimate Collection that EA gifted everyone. I am losing everything and since I was in the Dark Ages, I am just too devastated to start right back up. I am gonna try something less intense (the Apocalypse probably). I will be back. I really want to finish this challenge, but I need to step back and get a little variety before jumping back in. Good luck all of you. I will see you again hopefully.

DitzyEkko, you simply have to remove your files from Documents/EA games/ SIms 2 to some safe place, uninstall your old games, install UC, run UC once and copy your old files back in place.
As for the plant sims: Children can't be turned into plant sims, so it's pretty safe to have them do the spraying.

Btw, my own newly started ToT challenge neighborhood is pausing too. I'm currently working on a medieval-y hood, but I'm pretty sure I'll be back again playing ToT. ^^
