Silly, quick little questions about the game that don't need their own whole threads.
Things you're wondering about gameplay that you think you should know despite having played the game quite a while.
Little things you're curious about, gameplay-wise.
That's what this thread is for. Ask all your silly stupid questions here.
This thread is not for:
Technical help. If you are having trouble with your game, please read the FAQs in MTS2's Game Help section and post in the Game Help forums if you are having issues. More likely than not, any answers to technical questions you might ask here would be -wrong- and will not help you fix your issue in the best way possible.

Where can I find/does this content exist? If you are looking for certain custom content, even if you're not sure anyone's made it, please ask in our Where Can I Find? forum instead of here.
Questions about specific hacks/custom content. Individual creators support their own work. If you have a question about InTEENimater or InSIMenator, ask on the InTEEN or InSIM forums. If you have a question about how a particular piece of content works, ask its creator in the thread.

Your question may already be answered. Here's some helpful tips/links for you, so you may not need to ask.
Am I the only one who makes former townies related to those with the same name?
In my hood I planned on having Sarah Love from La Fiesta Tech and the NPC police woman Demi Love as sisters. Sarah had twins in college and couldn't raise them, so I was planning on making Demi playable and raising them, but I never got round to it - so Demi is still an unrelated NPC.
I usually use the Simblender to set family ties, but I've noticed it doesn't seem to show up in the family tree unless you set parents too. Not sure if that's a problem for everyone or just me, because I haven't seen anyone else complain about it.
It's only a buck. I buy it when I need it and delete it when I'm done using it. Except sometimes I may stick it in a foundation when I'm doing development in a shareable neighborhood and don't want to be messing with it constantly. Then it's mostly a matter of keeping it out of the way of pictures I'm taking for the storytelling folder. Same with the Tombstone of L&D - I spawn it once and put it somewhere inobvious, then take it out again when I'm doing the final clean sweep before sharing.
I started keeping batbox on all my lots after I needed it once to reenable controls and didn't have it on the lot - build/buy mode failed to become accessible again after a fire so I couldn't just buy it when needed.
I prefer to stick it under foundations because it kind of breaks immersion (that's not the exact word I wanted, but it's the closest to what I mean) for every family to have the exact same vase/flowerpot/something somewhere in their house.
