So no, there aren't other body shapes. There's just custom meshes linked to skins that emulate other body shapes. Which yeah, is still very good for people who are alright with working with the limitations the skin-linked meshes have, but they aren't functioning in the same way as the actual body shapes that came with the game.

I guess I'm unclear on what you are saying. The Maxis shape is the default but there are custom body shapes which can be used as default overrides as well.

Custom body shapes act just like the default Maxis shape in CAS which is to say the body shape is not displayed at all (unless you use Chris Hatch's True Nude in CAS mod). All fit, normal and fat states as displayed in CAS and in game are all determined by the clothing meshes the user selects and are independant of the body shape used.

So I'm not certain what the distinction is you are making between the Maxis shape and other body shapes. They are all linked to skintones using nude top and bottom meshes and a Sim's actual body shape (custom or Maxis) is never seen in game or in CAS without mods.

I'm getting so sick of my musically-untalented sims torturing everyone on community lots I wish I could make mods. This is how I'd set up the checks:

- Sims who are Shy (less than 4 outgoing) don't perform unless their creativity is higher than 7
- Sims who are outgoing (more than 7 outgoing) may perform regardless of creativity skill
- Sims who are neither overly shy or outgoing don't perform unless creativity is higher than 4

I remembered something that occasionally nags me. I think it's definitely possible (especially with Sun & Moon over at Plumbob Keep) but I would love tendable llamas. Ones that you could feed, care for, harvest wool from, etc. I'm surprised no one has done it yet that I could find, but the functions have been created for other animals. The closest I could think of getting to replicating it myself would be to stick a life-like llama sculpture over a tendable sheep. I just want Patrizio Monty to be able to actually have his llama ranch, darn it!

There's gummilutt's Music Autonomy Overhaul . Not as nuaced as your ideas - any Sim with Creativity 5+ can play - but it may save some sanity.

There are the llamas made by Strange Tomato, which are technically dogs, but I use them in place of llamas. This is a link to the brown one, but there's a link in that post to a spotted and a light one as well. Like I said, they're technically dogs, so you can't get fur from them or whatever, but they *are* llamas, kind of. Sometimes they bark, but that's because they're bilingual.

I wish there were sand bags which sims ACTUALLY USE when they clean the pet potty. I kniw they appear when you clean pet potty, but I want an actual/usable/functional sand bag.

Gummilutt has something like that for pet food. So it might be possible.

One thing that I would love is if a skilled modder managed to figure out how to create custom wants!
Sims can't roll wants to buy or use custom objects, such as Sun&Moon sets, Deedee's woodcrafting bench and gnome crafting bench...
I play want-based and if custom wants were possible, these objects would insert naturally in the gameplay! My sims could want to start a farm or craft gnomes without me deciding it for them.

This, but less chance of genie lamp. If it exists, I cannot find it. Does anyone know the default amount?

I might one day finish my Zanes Hollow project, but I wouldn't hold my breath. Until then, you can see what I'm up to on my Simblr!

It's calculated based on your sims' lifetime aspiration points and hobby enthusiasm. It seems like the easiest way to make the genie lamp less frequent would be to change it to be a chance out of 1000 or something instead of a chance out of 100, which would make it ten times less likely. Or you could pick some other number to make it only however many times less likely.

Has anybody ever made a mod to make it possible TO delete spoiled food? You could do this in Sims1, but you can't do it in Sims2 - and the sims, even the help staff, are low-grade morons when it comes to cleaning up after themselves.

You can use testingcheatsenabled (the debug cheat) to force an error on the plate and delete it.

I have one by Simmodder, but I can't find where I got it from. You could try posting a WCIF.

This is from the Readme file:

Reduced wealth given by genie (10000+5000)
Genie arriving is now a much rarer event.
Old logic:
Chance = 2% + 2% for each sim > 66% LTA + 1% each sim >= 8 hobby enthusiasm
New logic
Chance = 2% for each sim > 75% LTA + 1% each sim >= 66% LTA

You can also, I discovered, use the "moveobjects on" cheat to delete the plate by deleting the surface it's on - but that gets expensive (and then you have to resort to "kaching" or "motherlode").

What I want in a butler mod:

Butler starts work as soon as he arrives (CJHatch, "Butler Controller Fix").
Butler cooks decent food, not junk food (Cyjon, "Better Butler Meals" - but does it have a stop code?)
Butler cooks only as much food as will comfortably serve the number of hungry sims actually present on the lot at the time. (And that means no cooking for sims who aren't hungry, who are sleeping, who are at work/school, or who are...bizzee. Also no babies, toddlers, Servos, Plantsims, vampires, werewolves, zombies, ghosts, etc. Beware broken code.)
Leftovers to be left on the kitchen counter and nowhere else - if no counter space, "Put Away Leftovers".
Butler to STOP cooking when the above conditions are met! (Nobody seems to have a Stop code!)
Butler NOT to roam the house and lot looking for flat surfaces to place food that no one will eat!
Butler leaves the lot no later than 11 pm regardless of any remaining work of any sort. (He can pick it up again in the morning.)

a mod that changes every sim into a woman (or at least, playables only) once it's loaded into a neighborhood. dangerous npcs and object npcs are left alone to be on the safe side. i don't want to use SimPE 24/7 to change every neighborhood to my liking.

i very much doubt this is possible though

I don't know if it's a suitable replacement, but midge the tree was once asked about a mod to make the game only generate female sims, so maybe you could follow their advice? I don't remember what post it was exactly, but you might find it on their tumblr archive

I'll take a look. Like I said, I don't even know if what I want- like some sort of automated process that replaces all gender strings ending in twos with strings that end in ones - is actually feasible. If only I had any programming skill!

Would it be a bad idea to ask midge themselves about it? Not request, but just ask a question?

Id like to be able to export a house without the sims living in it. Sometimes I remake a house the sims live in and I want to save it but not them.

@floodedbaths, not sure if that's possible for an existing hood but should be for a new hood. I think @Chris Hatch has mods to make an all female hood. Or I think I remember reading he had one. I'll try to look around as it may be with his adult mods and idk if those are archived anywhere.

And @kewpie you can do that with the TS2 Clean Installer. There are buttons at the top to select All, the Lot and Objects, or just Lot Only and no objects (useful if you ever want an empty version of a lot with cc). I forget the exact names but the options are there.

Once you install the lot without sims, I would go in, clean it with the Lot Cleaner, make sure it doesn't have SDHG (it you have SuperDuperHugTest installed, it'll find and delete it), and maybe delete sim references, and you're good to go.

ETA: Yes, floodedbaths, looks like Back Alley Sims was archived by DigitalAngels/Hermit Fox/foxmanic here and you're looking for the Single Gender Neighbourhood Mods zip and maybe Female Butlers.

Thanks for this!! Based on this information I was able to find it! Simmodder had made one but it was only uploaded onto TinyUpload which is apparently gone now? Found it reuploaded here.

Thanks, I appreciate your help. Might honestly take a look into modding to see if all playables can be made one gender in one go.
