If anyone has a request pending with me, send me a PM and remind me. I've gone over my list and my inbox, and I feel like there's one I'm forgetting. I have a little bit of time, so I might be able to finish it.

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

My husband just bought a number of games through Steam and though I do enjoy playing games other than Sims, my first reaction to what he got was "SimCity 4 - now I can make my own terrains!"

This one is truly random. I was watching the Mr. Robot marathon today and found myself wishing he could hack the sims 2 source code files for us.

I love it when teenagers are sneaking out, walking on tip-toes, being awfully discreet - and then the sim they're sneaking out with arrives to pick them up in a freaking limousine

I am Error.

Speaking of sneaking, Monica Bratford and kids moved into a new house last night. The gypsy showed up all tippytoes to leave them a lamp. Monica was walking like a step behind her. Seriously, stop being stealthy when the whole household can see you.

This may sound strange, but I would like a mod that would allow children to get the mail. They don't have to pay the bills, but they could at least fetch them.

I just moved the Gavigan family from the bin and soon as they moved in and the taxi was leaving, there was Nathan telling a dirty joke, then a loud 'boing' sound and Mary was mad at him. Her (or maybe both) aspiration and their relationship points dropped. So they head into the house and he's ready to tell another. I know a lot of sims don't like the jokes, but never this drastically. They have now moved back to the bin.

I had that happen with the Goodies. I didn't realize how badly it had hurt their relationship until Herbert tried to fulfill a want by kissing Faith and she rejected the interaction, further dropping their relationship. While trying to fix the relationship I had to pay attention to him because he kept trying to tell dirty jokes autonomously, and apparently Faith really didn't think he was funny. It took me a couple of sim days to get their relationship back to where Faith was accepting all of Herbert's romantic wants, but she still hated his jokes even when their relationship bars both were full.

Of course, in the hood I'm playing now, Faith is telling dirty jokes to any of the other families that she visits, even mere acquaintances. Sims are weird.

Easy enough to do, since I already dug out the mailbox pie menu for my no autonomous get mail mod.
No autonomous get mail + children get mail
Children get mail only
Only for AL or M&G users. If anyone wants it and has a different setup, let me know and I'll modify the correct one for you.

Sim children will float when getting the things out of the mailbox. I'm not an animator, and I don't want to be either, so I can't fix the floating but if anyone else wants to they are welcome to.

The no autonomous jokes isn't compatible with some of those other mods which I use. I think it's only in an opened shop too. (if I read it correctly) Thanks anyway (:

You could get rid of that if you figured out how to activate the little step that children use for things like reaching the counter.

My sims have never autonomously got the mail. Lazy sods!

No autonomous dirty jokes is listed in his No Autonomous Socials Collection too: http://www.insimenator.org/showthread.php?t=94748
Just only THIS mod separate you can find in his shop socials page. I found I don't need all of his socials restrictions.
No one of my sims have business and they tell dirty jokes only when I direct them so. Just make this mod load last.

I know, but that's assuming that the mailbox is at the correct level using the stool. Would look weirder with clipping than floating, I'd think. I looked at it for my juicing enabled mod, but I don't know enough yet. I'm decent at editing existing BHAVs, but not at creating them. In the end it ends up being a matter of what I consider worth more time, and the floating does not bother me much so that I think it more important spending hours and hours on it when I could use that time to create new things. If I had more time for Sim-creating, definitely, but since it's a few hours a month and a little extra over holidays, Sim children will just have to float for now

My Sims don't autonomously get the mail either, but my roomies do constantly, and they end up swallowing date cards, meal tickets and post cards that were meant for my Sims. If I see them doing it I can have them gift it to my Sim, but I don't always notice so I prefer if they just don't get the mail. It's never for them any way.

Hmmm I'm thinking it has to do less with being lazy and more with knowing they'll have to pay bills. I mean, isn't that why we avoid getting the mail.

Sometimes I drive myself crazy. I've been having an issue with a Sim of mine not gaining enthusiasm, which is interfering with my story, I finally decided to tackle troubleshooting it, and I've spent the last three hours doing 50/50. The culprit? A Cyjon mod. Doing exactly what it's designed to do, stop younger Sims from gaining above a certain level of enthusiasm *facepalm*

Not the first time I end up finding a mod I forgot I had. Why I ever wanted that mod, I don't know, but clearly I did. I thought I had a good idea of what mods I have after going over all of them in my download cleaning prior to the last hood rebuild, but this is the third time I find a mod I did not think I had since I went through them. I guess I should take the hint and make a proper list with detailed descriptions, so that I can search that before I go on a 50/50.

What a pain, although I'm sure most of us have been there in one way or another. I could not figure out why this sim could not give birth, had to exit without saving 3 times in a row, was about to do a 50/50. Found it was No Sim Loaded-but my fault since I had not read properly and not included smarter EP check.

When I find a mod I don't need I do a search under Start and remove all incidences of it because it can be lurking in a backup.

Thanks, Gummi for the mailbox hack!

I never have to do 50/50. That was such a pain and, since I'm constantly in and out of my downloads, adding new stuff, I had to do the 5//50 often. So now I have three folders in my downloads, marked 1, 2, and well, you get the pattern. Inside the 1 folder are folders with the same pattern. New cc always goes in folder one. If I add cc more than once that day, it goes in folder 1, subfolder 2, or 3, or 4...
The next day all folder 3 items are placed in the download section, 2 moved to 1, and 1 unpacked of cc in subfolders is moved to 2. This gives me three days to play with all cc in my game to find any bugs. Offending content is removed to be tried again at a later date in another order. It sounds more complicated than it is, and it certainly beats the heck out of 50/50.

If you've never seen it, go and watch the animation right now for a sim teaching their pet to "play dead". It's funny and sweet, and it never fails to make me laugh.

I found it quite terrifying at first. It does look way too much like the death animation.
