This has bugged me since I first managed to get a Sim to learn to teleport.

The image on the left is what the game normally displays after learning to teleport. The right shows it with my correction in the downloads folder.

I don't know if the error exists in the other languages so this just corrects the English.
If it is incorrect in other languages in which you play your game you should be able to open this file using SimPE and edit the text yourself. Just select your game language from the dropdown list in the 'Plugin View' and type in what it should say. Commit Changes and then save the file.

Please don't redistribute this elsewhere as it is. You are free to distribute any versions which correct flaws (if any) with the other languages though.

I suppose EAxis has their own language now? Bwahahaha. Thanks!

I did notice this, but I really tried to ignore it. Operative word is "tried." Thanks!

As an English major, I extend my gratitude. I haven't seen this error yet and now I don't have to! (But I am willing to forgo the ancient Latin grammar rule of not ending a sentence with a preposition)

I can't believe this was there. I'd always been reading it the right way.

I can never seem to catch that dang ninja to teach my Sims to teleport, so I hadn't noticed this error before either! I am glad it is now fixed, though, it would bug me!

I officially hate whoever keeps screwing up with the grammar and clothing bugs and trying to calculate the attraction between a Sim and a skunk (really, there's a fix for that somewhere.) It's just sad that they have to leave everything up to the modders. Thank you!

Okay, strangely, it doesn't even say that on mine.

Hmm, maybe the text for American installations is correct but UK installations isn't. I've been noticing this recently when I've been trying to correct things. I had thought it was wrong in both UK and US though.

I can't ever catch those damn ninjas, and when I do I get the friggin' riddles wrong all the time!

Is there a fix for that?

Well the default chance of success is 50% and I don't know how to change it but I do seem to remember seeing a hack to give a 100% chance. I think it was here on MTS2 but it may have been on Insim or MATY.

I hardly see the ninja in my game, so I hadn't noticed it...
Thanks for this though- fighting bad grammar, one word at a time! (This could take a while...)

With a name like Saxy, you know it's unique.

Thanks for fixing this - I didn't even notice. Would have bugged me once I did notice. Geez, can't EA/Maxis even use correct grammar? Wouldn't kill them if they fixed things themselves. But, I guess they must think it will. Without the modders to fix EA/Maxis screw-ups, I'd have quit playing the game along time ago.
