@joof CityLiving provides us the apartment shell which cannot be customized. You can only build inside the existing apartments or in the case of penthouse, you can treat them like normal house, but on top of a shell.

How do I bring Doc the cat back to life with the Ambrosia pet treat? I moved Doc the Cat ( he's a ghost) in with my sim I bought the Ambrosia treat. but, it only treat it will show is for to give him big pet treat. I tried putting in the floor in front of him for him to eat it, didn't work he just fell asleep by it. I tried putting in a pet bowel for him to eat and it would not let me. I tried to get a friend of my sim to visit and give it to him, that did not work either. Could it be because she owns her own vet business. is that why?

Strange. Did you adopt Doc? He's part of the Lynx household originally. If you didn't adopt him, maybe that's why. Otherwise it should work like when you give a Wellness or Aging treat (i.e. you just give the cat or dog the treat).

I just moved him in from manage households in main menu, I found him by unhide hidden households with mcc. Maybe that's why? Maybe I need to find his urn, pet gravestone and bring it on lot with him

I bet that's it. I don't play with ghosts very often and definitely not ghost pets, since I have aging off, so I wasn't sure if you could/had to adopt Doc or not. However, now I remember ghosts are moved into a hidden household since the culling changes, so it might have bugged him out somehow unhiding his household since that can't be done without mods. I'd try to find his urn if you can and then see what happens.

I just started playing the game and I couldn't find this anywhere- how are traits assigned in children? Are they inherited?

Nope. As long as you don't have mod for this, you choose traits and aspirations just as you like.

I think they do inherit some 'hidden' traits - I had a child who got negative moodlets when there was something broken or dirty, but I hadn't given her the neatness trait. Her mother had it, however. She lost it when she aged up and all her traits were chosen for her. Maybe it was just coincidence - the game just randomly filled that hidden trait slot?

Is there a way to create a pet rather than just adopt one? I want my family to own a specific breed with a certain personality.

Yes, just go into CAS, add sim and make it a pet. You might need to enter full mode though.

I hate to ask another question, but I built a house and I'm trying to access the cinematic/cameraman mode from build mode to get screenshots of it. Is that possible?

A lot of crap ended up in there after renovating my old crappy house. Too many items and the way menu's and screens pop up with this fancy delay, I got tired of deleting all those items one by one. So if anyone has a solution for this, it would be very welcome. A solution to get rid of the delay in menu's (the way it fans out) and screen pop up would be nice too.


Sadly, I don't think so. You have to sell everything one by one. Someone should really make a mod for that though.

ghosts dont exist. you just die then you're faced with eternal nothingness. it's gonna be great.

tab only works for me in live mode. I don't want to put anyone in the home, I just want to take pictures so I can't use live mode.

Tab camera isn't designed for build mode, unfortunately - only live mode, so if you want to use it, you'll need a Sim somewhere on the lot.

ah, okay. Is that how people take the shots of houses they upload then? Also, is there a way to make the plumbob invisible?

Edit: one last thing- is it okay to delete sims? At least in sims 2, it would corrupt the game.

I think it must be, because I know tab camera won't work in live mode. And for getting rid of the plumbob use: headline effects off in the console. Yes, it's okay to delete Sims. I've never heard of any save corruption from doing it and I know I've never had a problem with it. Hope this helps!
