I'm way older than 6 and I think farts are hilarious at least when sims do them, they don't smell.

Two arrived sims at their owned community lot had died. Grim reaper then closes down the venue for them, whistling away the customers.

P.S. Sorry for my bad english.

Oh also I think the Sims 3 probably did university a lot better, with its actual need to study, and it's degree specific objects to use, it actually seems like someone at least talked to students while making it. Also smartphones and social media are just a little more relevant to today but that's actually not important especially since the game is from 2004-2008, so yeah. 3 has tuition, some whiteboards, study groups, and older students, where as 2 doesn't. University students in 2 have it easy, EASY


Sims 2 devs disliked lectures. They liked dorm life.

I read about this somewhere.

Hoodies were very much a thing in mid-2000s universities, if the lectures I was in when a student back then were anything to go by (they were usually worn with the hood down unless the weather was awful, so the developers didn't even have that awkward neck/body animation issue to contend with).

Mind you, the students at my dorms often seemed to have trouble with self-catering facilities, not to mention trying to juggle working at businesses with lectures...

That sims can stuff their faces directly from the fridge when hungry enough! I feel like I’ve heard about this but never seen it. I’m sure I’m late on discovering/witnessing this, but I literally take years off at a time with this game, so I still find basic things out when I’m back on a playing kick as I currently am.

I had two sims on a date, and one of them had a fear of their date smelling bad. I didn't know that was a thing. It's highly realistic too.

I also have something I did not know. Sims can *cry* sitting on a chair...lol
I mean, I know they will show some sadness and worrying behavior when their aspiration go south, but calmly sitting? I just never saw it happened. Poor Sadie, nothing seems to be working right now.

You can make money from selling aspiration rewards - LOTS of money. EVEN if they are set to RIDICULOUSLY CHEAP. Found that out when my mad scientist 'invented' the Simvac. Now he's selling them behind his eldest son's back, and his second son went off to live on his own after marrying a townie who rolled wolf/plantsim. Yup. Dogwood.

I have a pic of that from way back when I was testing my roach mod.

He's only there because you can't make an animal only lot, so he can sit there and be grateful that I'm incapable of just building a box for my test sims.

Today happened something that I have never seen before:

Natasha Una, which in my game is owner of Mostly Modern Art Museum, get a job offer to Counter Intelligence, from guy which played with her in museum. She accepted it.

Then she go to work. Chance card appeared:

Quote:
The enemy has made recent headway with its latest attempt to crack the SimCity Security Systems Database. <Sim> has been assigned to launch targeted counter-intelligence measures, but with the highly classified nature of all information within the agency, <Sim> finds himself/herself in the embarrassing position of not knowing exactly who the "enemy" is. He/She tosses a few subtle questions out while in the lunch line, but begins to get the distinct feeling that no one in the bureau has any idea who or what it is that they are fighting against. However, orders are orders, and <Sim> is going to have to come up with something. He/She could play it new school, unleashing a horde of his newly coded "double-agent" firewall replicator network probes, or he/she could keep it old school and go with a barrage of wire taps and traces.


I answered incorrectly and Natasha was fired.

I'm pretty sure that that's the chance card that ended Gloria's military career, and pretty well ended me doing chance cards; she was so upset! Being a modern girl, Gloria chose the "new school" route but the fuddy-duddy old army wanted it done by the book. It didn't work out too badly in the end; Andrew eventually persuaded her to look in the paper for another job, and the Veronaville All-Stars were looking for a mascot. Now she's fulfilling her dream as their star player.

What really rankles with me still (and I'm sure with Gloria and Andrew too) is that the army gave her a Dishonourable Discharge. An error of judgement perhaps, but Gloria, dishonourable? There's not a single dishonourable atom in Gloria's makeup. Is there no right of appeal in the Sims universe?

All Sims are beautiful -- even the ugly ones.

I assume this is common knowledge by now, but I just found out a few minutes ago that Sims can buy different video games!! I was so sick of SSX, and when Rick Contrary rolled a want to see a community lot, I found out I could buy other games like Spore and MySims!

ETA: I just started looking through these forums after posting this, and while I did, Rick messaged Violet Jocque on the computer and invited her over! Never saw that before!

Apparently, if a sim is pregnant and happens to get her first bump when she is formal clothes, she will change into the formal outfit Brandi Broke has and get her bump in that outfit. I don't know why they don't allow for them to change into formal wear though, guess it might have been in case you invite a pregnant sim to a wedding and she needs formal clothes.
Also, while poking around I also found that apparently the short nightgown-looking sleepwear and the long not-flowy-skirted formalwear also have pregnancy meshes, as well as all the swimwears, underwears, and some maxis shirts too, for some reason.

As a side note, I've noticed that whenever my young adult sims get pregnant and I try to change their maternity outfit, this outfit (in blue) is always an option. It's never used (or atleast I don't think it is, I think YA wear the same maternity as teens) but it's got appropriate morphs.

Not sure why it's there. If it's an inteen thing, or if it's there for other reasons? I think it appears as an option for adults too.

I discovered that if your sim gets electrocuted (in my case it was TV), this can cause fire.
Also I've discovered that mod for much more dangerous fire is working very well.
