This is but one of the millions of manifestations of it should I blast my graphics too high e_e; fortunately I should be upgrading to a better graphics card tonight!

Fortunately the problem fixed itself. It was funny but I do want to be able to see my sims thank you very much.

There's actually a fix for that up on Simbology if you have Freetime (it was a bug).
Maybe its freetime, but it definatly scared me the first few times it happened.
(Eclipse, Aubrey, and their kids are all gone now! )

So its not just my game? Thank goodness. o_o I thought I did something to mess mine up!
Another glitch that scared me (I don't know if you can call this a glitch) was when neighborhoods disappeared from the "Select Neighborhood" view. Glitch or not, that really freaked me.
anyhoo, besides being jealous that her graphic card is extremely better than mine, i started a family to kind of show my cousins how to play.
I had a female sim in that family go to downtown to get some more clothes..and well when she came back,....i looked at the screen and it wasn't three sims like before i went to downtown. it was just the male sim and their baby boy, the car had returned but i zoomed the camera to it and she wasn't even in the car...it was like she was none existent and boy she was good looking maxis sim.
freaking out, i saved, exited to neighborhood view and re-entered the house, she was there and she was standing by the house like if she had just moved in...and she was back on the sims bar so it was now three again...
boy did that scare me....
my bad on the long post.

And someone posted a video of the fenced-in flying skunk somewhere, it's hilarious!
ETA - I found The Amazing Flying Skunk video! It's by Ferret.
I forced an error on the Skunk because it was twitching. Then it kinda glitched and went like that! Fortunately not all the skunks in the neighbourhood ended up like that!
Okay, one that really suprised me was when Pascal (?) Curious gave birth to triplets. This was a glitch cause I didn't have any hacks back then (this was waaaaaaaaay back in the days when I didn't know about CC ) and apparently he is programmed to only have one baby, like how Brandy Broke is programmed to have a boy.
That, and there was another time when one of my girls invited her boyfriend to live with her, he brought about 1,000,000 Simoleons with him despite the fact that he only had maybe 3,000. Now THAT was a surprise.
The first time, all the service people just stopped coming to the lot. This isn't particularly scary in itself; it just made me wonder why I hadn't seen the maid in so long. Then the teenage daughter set the stove on fire and the fireman didn't come... and didn't come... and didn't come. Eventually I moved them out of the lot, went back in build mode with move_objects on and deleted the fire object. For a while there, I'd thought they were all going to burn to death.
A generation later, on the same lot, I picked up a toddler with move_objects which created some really bizarre graphics glitches; the toddler became invisible, the toddler became invisible and was mysteriously selectable in a completely wrong part of the house, the dad carried the toddler up the stairs, but his arms were bent backwards and the toddler was displaying on the other side of the room. This may or may not have been connected to how a different toddler on the same lot started acting like a baby and could not be picked up without causing error messages.
Also, in the process of fixing the toddler problems above, I moved the family out of the lot while the nanny was there; she reappeared on the lot as if she was a member of the family, and there was no option to dismiss her - I eventually had to delete her with move_objects.

I'd disagree- the patch solves a whole load of quite nasty bugs, like the aspiration problem and the motive decay during ballet.
Graphic glitches get to me. When I see glitchy hair, faces, screens, etc--I freak out. Totally.
I exited and went to the older house, the babies were still there with the father. I went back into the new lot, and the babies were still laying on the sidewalk. I waited to see what would happen, they cried and got dirty diapers and were out there for a total of 6 Sim days. I moved the mother out, but the babies were still there with the room mate. When snow came and buried the babies, it was too much. I moved the room mate out entirely and moved her back in. I had to redecorate the entire house, but the 'ghost' babies were gone.
Another weird thing was with another child on another lot. Her arms went backwards and she'd do her homework upside down, it was very strange. Once she grew into a teenager, it went back to normal.

I just started playing with him again after I moved him into a new house, and for some weird reason, though he is an elder, he only qualifies for teenage jobs! He works teenage hours (three hours a day?) for like, 70$, and reaches the top of a career after three advancements. Weird!
