I'm surprised that I didn't end up taking the axe to my computer, this was so annoying. But yes, my first upload is *drum roll* Buyable Fire. Yes, I know this was included in Carrigon's Wierd Collection, yet I made this one myself, and it is available in the catalog rather than as a collection. It is in Sort By Room > Miscellanious and Miscellanious > All. I hope you like it, all you pyromaniacs!

Sounds like an interesting way to play out a 'family dies by fire' scenario now. Thanks, I'll test this

Well, you go in Buy Mode, click 'Sort By Room', click 'Miscellanious' and there will be three objects there. One of them has a picture which says 'No Pic' - that is fire. It is free and you can place it in your lot (it is invisible in Buy Mode when you place it). As soon as you go into Live Mode, a fire will start on the tile you placed it on.

Oh my freaking gosh! My dream has come true! This plus the insane fire hack is crazy crap. I have this family, Alien guy, normal girl. the girl is pregnant. So they're inside sleeping, and I put a fire outside. An hour later I call the firemen and they come, only to be met by flames. They run around for about 7 hours and try to put it out. But my yard is a big one so it's everywhere. I found out that firetrucks are flammable. The whole thing dissapears and ashes are left behind. My sims are in a horrible mood and then my wife has a baby. TWINS! So I'm thinking what next. I need to do some remodeling for a new room cuz I thought I would only have one. Too bad there's a fire so I can't buy anything. Two days and a half later, the fire is gone to leave me with ashes, ashes, an alien baby, a baby, 5 urns from my neighbors, and horrible sims in need of sleep, food, and social. That was one HECK of a day LMAO!

Fire, I think it's a cool idea but there needs to be a way to contain the fire. If anything happens, like your house burns down, you get twins, and you have 4 very miserable sims in the house, nobody's going to download the fire. Maybe you could make some kind of fire pit you can add the fire to or something to keep it from spreading...

What do you mean no ones going to download it? Even if right now there's no control over it, it's not like you can't just reload after using it. I don't understand the problem. I love it, thanks!

There is a way to contain it - use fences or balustrades. Quite a few of my sims are pyrotechnitions (or pyromaniacs - not sure which!) and have a balustrade round a single square. That can act like a makeshift fireplace, that doesn't even have to touch a wall!

looks great for a makeshift bonfire (until we get one w/ University).

Nice!
Fire! Fire! Heh heh heh! Anyway, what we need now is a way to make them ignore the fire... I can make all the pet fires I want behind fences, but I can't get my sims to leave the cursed things alone, all they do is panic and scream about it.

Actually I have found it in function sort mode too. It is in misscellanious > all. I found a very original way to kill roaches. I placed fire near them, but i had forgotten how powerful the Intense Fire Hack was. the whole lot went up in flames, Amy the paper girl and Mortimer Goth died, I had to call the firefighters, I nearly burnt to death three times and there was ash everywhere. I killed the roaches, though!

OK, now that I've read the other posts, I think I understand better. Very creative, downloading now!

If you can contain it with fences, then that's a good thing. I just thought that you wouldn't be able to contain it considering it's fire and all.

Dwnldng right now

What?? I said in there that I had a hack that makes hugely intense fires, so a normal one wouldn't do that much. And houses can't burn down. Fires only stay in the room they're put in.

Anarchist I like your avatar.

So, can the fire burn down your house or not?

Thats why fencing them in works. It is classed as a room.

#23 Old 1st Feb 2005 at 11:17 PM
Thank you Elven. It depends what your talking about. Fires can only burn down sims and objects. Say If you put the fire in you living room. It's only going to burn down the things in the living room unless you call the fire dept. It can't burn down walls, windows, doors, and things like that. As for outside, you can just look at the pic I posted. It won't burn down your mailbox, trash can, or the firemen. But It can burn down the firetruck and your ride to work :/
