Another hack requested by myself a long time ago.

These stereos can be turned by your simmies only if you tell them to.

Im tired of everlasting uncontrolled music when playing

These stereo have own GUIDS so they dont overwrite default ones


WORKS IN OFB!!!

You all know you can put your mp3's in the music folders and play whatever you want in the game right?

I'm another person who wants a hack to prevent Sims turning the stereo OFF! I have a whole load of Final Fantasy tunes and rare William Orbit tracks that I love to listen to while I play. Originally, I used the J M Pescardo hack, but that doesn't work since the arrival of Nightlife. I tend to use the stereo for getting the Sim kids to keep fit and for teenagers to get the Uni award for dancing skills. But no matter what time of day it is, there's always at least one Sim who is just past halfway down on their Energy level and they insist on turning the blasted thing off. So I end up sending anyone who's halfway down on their energy bar to bed, or to drink loads of coffee so someone else can use the stereo.

So, please! A variation of this for all stereos that stops them automomously turning the stereo on OR off!

Oh, it's so great when someone, with the knowledge to hack, has the same problems with his/her sims! They make us a better world! You don't know how much you need something unless you'll see it!!! I haven't searched for this hack, I was just viewing around on MTS2, but I hate my sims for turning on the radio and then go to sleep or answering the phone or do something else! And I'm gonna search for the "don't turn off-hack" as well! Cause they turn off the stereo right before the final end of their parties and the mood is going down! Stupid Sims! (They are mine so I can say that! ) Good idea and Thanks for making it with the cheapest stereos! bye smelly

Maybe I'm too stupid , but where can I find "Insimenator", is it a Username? I've searched in the forum and couldn't find it! Is it a site?

By the way, my sims always want to cook something, although they have no skills or another sim is already cooking for the whole family, so a "don't-touch-it-hack" for the fridge would be great! bye smelly

OMFG thank you. Yesterday I was so pissed at my sim. A really good song of mine was starting and my sim turned it off. So I turned it on again and another good song was starting and the sim turned it off again. So I turned it on again and here comes the **** up part. My sim looked up at me from the screen and wile he was still looking at me he turned it off again. I was so pissed. It looked so much like he just looked at me and said **** you. Then turned it off. Needless to say I enjoyed locking him in a room with nothing in it and watched him starve to death.

Any chance you could make it where a sim won't spontaneously start to dance (other than at the club) without given a command to?
