I've started uploading my Lots to the Sims File Share site, here: http://simfileshare.net/folder/46809/
Check that link occasionally to see whether I've added or updated anything.

TS2 Technical Odds & Ends

Date Posted: 10th Aug 2015 at 5:23 AM


Here's another quick FYI regarding my recent reinstall of the game.
I noticed this morning that I was no longer able to take in-game screenshots using the PrtScn key, which I always found to be the easiest and most practical way to take screenshots.
I found out that if I maximized the in-game Graphics/Performance Options Smooth Edges slider to "More", it will then let me take screenies using the PrtScn key.

I don't like cluttering my computer with silly little programs just to take screenshots, so I'm glad I found this solution.

TS2 Lot Builders' Odds & Ends

Date Posted: 4th Mar 2015 at 6:06 PM


Here I will list various Odds & Ends I come across while playing and building Lots, with a short description and a link to the corresponding forum discussion thread. I would ask readers to post comments, and especially lengthier discussions, into the linked-to threads, not here.

Problematic Beverage Bars

There are four beverage bars that don't fully work when placed against walls (or other objects that restrict or prevent movement). What happens is that after a Sim mixes drinks (ie, four drinks), they are subsequently not able to access them.
The four bars are:

Bachman Busbar
Retro Lounge "High Liquidity" Juice Bar
Black Lacquer Bar Counter
Double Wood Bar by Romantic Notions

Problematic Chairs & Barstools

Some chairs will block Sims' movements in certain situations, while most others won't.
Besides the Jacuster's "Last Stand" Sectional Booth, which is obvious, there are two chair types that are more restrictive in their allowance of Sims moving around them. They are the Sit-Up-Straight Dining Chair and the "Contorto" Dining Chair by Ernesto Doloroso. These two chair types should always be tested in situations that might be problematical (nearby diagonal walls, nearby objects, etc.).

Also, four barstools have the same issue:
Crankshaft Barstool by You Got Muscle - $205, Apartment Life EP
"The Sample" Bar Seat - $400, Bon Voyage EP
Instant Giant - $500, FreeTime EP
Barstool by Simulated Comfort - $690, Pets EP

Disappearing Telephone Handsets

If certain actions are performed in a certain order, it is possible that the handpieces to telephones can disappear, rendering the phones unusable by Sims and requiring their replacement.
