I am realising how much I miss the Memories from TS2...

Who knows where thoughts come from....? They just appear.

So... I don't know what exactly happened here.

One minute this guy is sunbathing, and the next I receive a notification that he has been gotten a severe sunburn. I tell him to exit the ocean, and discover that a sunburn means having a red rash, a complete hair colour change, a different melted-looking outfit put on, and also a brand new beard grown.

I haven't had something as severe as this happening myself BUT twice now my Sims have changed into a weird mismatch of clothes that I most certainly did not create myself. It doesn't even appear under their clothing options. According to MCC it's "an outfit for special occasions..." Either it's some bad CC going on or the game is bugged.

Have you also considered that having MCC is the problem? Or any other mods you are using?

"Special occasions" outfits are generated for San Myshuno festivals, sulani events etc. You can use MC dresser to force sims to wear outfits for any of these situations from existing categories chosen by you, instead of generating new outfits.

That's one strange festival in that case. The first Sim changed from his job uniform (the gardener one) to an outfit with a discolored, melted shirt and CC pants. (Which I initially considered to be the issue. But wasn't sure how to fix it.) But it went away when he changed clothes and I couldn't find his work uniform... I thought it had messed up somehow. He got a promotion the following day so I never saw it again. So I don't know what it was "coded" as. His new work uniform was the botany doctor one. Which was correct.

The second Sim had this... punk style outfit. Flannel. I can't recall any festival with that dressing code.

I wish I could nail the issue down... but I don't know how to make it happen consistently. So I'm not sure how to solve it.

My own issue seems to be linked somehow to swimming.

Back in 2018 (which was just before my Sims hiatus that ended only recently), I had a brunette haired sim swimming in the family pool. When she went to exit, Her swimwear was replaced by a dress that came in the Get Together expansion, and her hair colour changed to the light gold blonde one. Her eyes even changed colour, and so did her make-up. I realized that there was a neighbor randomly strolling around the lot. It was Clara Bjergsen. I did a double-take. My swimming sim had taken on Clara's exact clothing, hair colour, eye colour and make-up set. She eventually reverted to her usual self, but it was really strange.

Default Oh come on!
My sim is getting up there in the science career, and she had a little weekend break so she tried "Escape from Bad-Poo" as a vacation.
Gamewise, you can que up tasks like spread first order propaganda, but it never happens. Getting carrots out of my sim's garden back at home is just as interesting, but it also works, unlike Bad-Poo.
Edit: Anyone having problems with the special plants like Cow Plant and Money tree just disappearing? Going from fully grown to a not yet sprouted plant?
edit of edit: I mean, this is absurd. These EA guys just throw out stuff to sell and don't do any regression testing or keep tabs of what their changes might affect to come up with a sensible software update.
Here you see in these pictures a sim fertilizing his garden. By the time he's finished, he's reduced his entire garden to molehills. This is the kind of quality product EA puts out. If I wasn't addicted to the game, I'd do something else besides playing it all day.

Today Temperance came a haunting and tore up the bathroom sink. Then my sim gave her some fruit salad and Temperance repaired the sink.

If someone doesn't like what you have to say, clicking the disagree button is not going to start a discussion on the subject. All it does is tell the person making the post that someone didn't like their post. Very helpful.

The newest updates in the life of my Sim Austin.

He went to the Love Festival in the city where he was told that his prospects of love was grim looking. No kidding, his boyfriend died... It made me feel sad for him though. I know, it's a game. The "Love Guru" can say what he want but it's my game. Still... I'm bummed.

He then made a New Year's promise to skill up. Next day, he got to the next level in cooking. Way quicker than I anticipated! I was going to skill up his gardening (he's a botanist and needs it for a promotion). While he was deep with his nose in a book, Dominic Fyres called. It was time for a group meeting. So I went there and... everyone but my Sim are elders (Austin in an Adult). It was a little shocking to see these Sims... all old. Makes me a little concerned though because eventually they'll die, leaving my Sim as the only remaining member. I might have to start inviting people...

Anyway, that's all for now.

From right to left: my original sim, Gunther, a scientist. His clone Elsa who he changed gender with the Sim ray using a mod I've not made yet . The toddler? Yeah, she's an alien and the daughter of Gunther and is named Stacy. Gunther was an 8th level scientist when Stacy was born, so he cloned himself creating Elsa to take care of her. Elsa can't get Lifetime Reward Points for Family tho' because Stacy is her niece, not her daughter. Bummer.
It worked out better than I expected.
My goal, tho, was to get Gunther way up there in reward traits before he cloned himself.

My sim started seducing all the townsfolk with his charm. As a matter of fact he's so charming that news of it got to a different galaxy, as he was abducted and impregnated by an alien. He ended up getting fired because he didn't show up to work since he was busy being impregnated. So I imprisoned Santa in the basement and tried to force him to paint paintings for me to sell, but it wasn't working, he was just singing, so I tried seducing sims into becoming my slaves. An already angry Eliza Pancakes happened to stomp by, witnessed my sim cheating on her, got angry, they fought, and she ended up dying to a cardiac arrest. A few sims started to mourn her and then went to swim in my pool in the middle of winter so they also died. I decided I was going to make a move on Death but then my sim went into labour and was just screaming non-stop because he couldn't leave the lot to give birth, and I couldn't buy a bassinet since Death wasn't done reaping souls. Eventually he finished, but by the time my sim finished giving birth and started chatting with Grim he decided it was time to go and left mid-sentence.

So now I'm stuck with a screaming alien baby, no job, a singing Santa in the basement, no romance with Death, a couple graves on the lot with ghosts breaking everything and a dead Elisa continously yelling at me because she's still mad.

TLDR; My save file is a mess.

I got a little bored with my play in the laptop install and decided to challenge myself a little. I already had created (read: redecorated) this tiny house in Willow Creek, making it "off the grid". And now I wanted to try something now. So I did dig up an "old" sim from my library. Her name is Scarletta Ambrams and in the pic you can see her with some of her neighbors who came to visit... about 48 hours after moving in... By now I have some experience whit sims gardening and roughly know where in the worlds I can find things to grow (trees carrying fruit, mushrooms, wild onions, berry's etc.) and my idea is to make her to take care of herself as mush as possible. The hard part will be to collect water but there is a river nearby so I think it will be OK. The problem will, however, be that she wants to be a famous author and she need a computer to write anything at all...


Question for you: I have been searching in buy mode for a fertilizer but with no luck. Do anyone know any download?

I just... what the... So I got one of those inspectors from Ecolife. He said that I'd fulfill the "green garden" NAP... Even though I've 31 plants on the lot... how... I don't get it.

Edit: Seems like this is a common issue. Apparently you need a beebox or bugbox. Even though the message said nothing about that...

I have been playing some random families from both of my installs and Ms Ambrams is one of them. By now she have been collecting a large amount of different fruit an vegetables and she have been planting a lot of them. I even gave her a bee hive so she could get honey. She liked it but she don't seem to like the taste of fruit. "Too natural". Well, it's supposed to taste like fruit so... The BBQ at the porch I placed because she wanted it and it have a lot of new interactions, Food, that I have not seen on a "on grid" lot or any other BBQ. The biggest issue is that that ice must be added to the fridge about once a day and that there is no running water. But I did download the waterpump from here: https://modthesims.info/d/653145/un...water-pump.html so Scarletta do not have to walk all the way to the river.
