As Jo says, the called Sim is actually on the lot.
Peni - I have seen Sims turning up when being called and they can be greeted, but this is different. The called Sim appears next to the caller. Called Sim also holds a phone - and when you direct the caller to hang up, the called Sim vanishes.

In my game the called sim doesn't hold a phone. He just shows up on the lot.
I don't have outdated hacks in my game.
I didn't have this glitch until recently.

Yes, that's right - the game calls the sim to the lot and the conversation takes place. You can see that they're there using transporters like Inge's cat or visitor controller. However, if something happens that makes them become uninvisible, it's either a glitch (relatively rare) or a problem or conflicting hack.

I never see them turn up. There's generally a lot going on in one of my households, with the person on the phone the least interesting thing on it, so I'll just suddenly notice that this person who called somebody is here now, acting like any other visitor. It only happens during the evening rush of phone calls in a busy house, and I've assumed it had something to do with the phone calls piling up on top of each other.

Same here. The Sim it happens too is a popularity Sim with 30+ best friends, and it's always during the 6pm-rush of calls from friends wanting to chat or invite her downtown.

Sounds like you probably had a different version of this problem Justpetro, since yours went away when you hang up the phone. Seems reasonable to be caused by a default replacement, probably messed with the invisibility-part of the calling Sim. But it's sort of calming to know lots of people see this problem. It's still really annoying, but makes me a tad less worried about it.

If you have questions on how to use SimPE or WW, you're welcome to PM me.

I should also add that this is why it's a bad idea to save and exit the lot when sims are on the phone - because there are random invisible sims on lot. If there's a reset or something, this can cause problems.

Yes, @gummilutt - all my called Sims showed up, in every household - all the time. It has definitely stopped.

That's freaky that you see them all the time like that Justpetro.

Jo - it was kind of funny the first time - but then it did get a bit weird! I wish I knew which default to blame, but I don't. Each time I try default replacements, something weird seems to happen (I do have one replacement hair , default replacement skins, makeup and a couple of others - I'd say not more than 12 in total, that all seem to work perfectly, though). Maybe I am just great at downloading the wrong ones!

I would contact a priest to perform an exorcism on your computer and/or Sims 2 disc, just to be on the safe side.

I have this happen sometimes in that the Sim that is called is visible on the lot for the duration of the phone call. It makes a bit of sense in a way in that whenever a Sim calls another, the called Sim IS actually summoned to the lot that the playable Sim is on. So, that happens with every phone call. It's just that usually the called Sim is invisible when summoned. On occasion, they'll be visible for the length of the phone call and then disappear from the lot when the call is finished, though. I see this happen randomly on occasion in my game, here and there, never in a pattern and never with same caller or call-ee, so I think it's just a random hiccup.

However, I've never had the called Sim be summoned to a lot and then stay on as a visitor. I think that's an entirely different thing because, although a phone call IS supposed to summon the called Sim as part of normal game functioning, it isn't supposed to make the called Sim an actual lot visitor. That's abnormal game behavior and, yeah, probably means that something is screwy somewhere...although I suppose it might be convenient if you intended to invite over the called Sim anyway.

I'm mostly found on (and mostly upload to) Tumblr these days because, alas, there are only 24 hours in a day.

So that means there was actually nothing wrong and they may show up again in my game

No More Alfixes!
Almost 60 months later, I've managed to finally put an end in Pescado's dictatorship, by fully replacing alfixes!
With EVERYONE'S input on this thread, I've compiled a list with all the mods mentioned here, with a few other critical fixes and my own alfixes' extracted features! Not sure I'm making myself clear, so here's the link with all the info!

I went to read your post to see if there was something I didn't have, and was very surprised to see my own name pop up in the list. It's so long ago I completely forgot that I was involved in this, but always fun to stumble upon something you made being mentioned and still used, so thank you for the smile

NOTE TO MODERATOR: This message is part of another message on another later thread I only think it's related to the OP

I played with a TON of The sims 2 apartment in my life, I love The Sims 2 Apartment life, I only have all the patches from wiki including the AL patch I think I have the following patch, sims wiki patch link below http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title...elp:TS2_Patches

NOTE: those patches are for the disc based versions of the sims 2 not the Ultimate Collection



POST BEGINS:

If you want to have more sim household inside apartments or trailer park (etc) than just build more of them and put only ONE household at a time into them, at ONE time, and when you want them to move out it will reset the lot it's a simple fix

if you are having clone issues than move all sims out of your apartments. Then move them back in again in order to reset the lot without needing to be cheat or hack.

if you do want to have more then one household in them, you can reset the lot, by moving them all out and, then moving them back in again. If you want to have more than one household per complex? But I would only recommend having one at a time.




The ONLY issue usually occurs "in my own game" when I move sims out of an apartment with more than one household in it. and one or two NPC's households. (for example) you have 2 sim households in one apartment complex, "with four or more apartment's or trailers?

and then you move one of those sims out using the "Move In" feature in the sims 2 relationship by Proposing "move in" on a different lot. Doing that will sometimes get a sim stuck on the previous lot. The old apartment lot. Because of the last save state on that apartment lot., Resetting the lot is the safest solution to this in my own opinion.

technically whenever you move a NPC "for example "using the default propose "Move In" feature. while clicking on a sim and then proposing. "for example" IF you are taking that sims out of a complex, or group home, trailer park (etc.) with more than one family in it, it can cause a stuck sim glitch. If that occurs than just reset the lot, that is all you need to do to fix it, It's safer in my own opinion then deleting the stuck or clone sim or sims,

Of course that all depends on how you play your game, I would like just to use the Sim relationship panel, Move In without a glitch, AND? as long as I don't have more than one household per apartment complex I never have to worry about having a stuck sim glitch, and I can still use the default Propose "move in" features on a different lot.

Of course! I forgot about when I move my old sims out of one of my own households than I would need to probably reset the lot to be safe, by moving the sims out than back in again anyway

You are not deleting a sims character file when you delete their instance off a lot. If something happened to them it's because something else was going on. I would immediately have run Hood Checker.
