I've gotten used to this one. Whenever there's routing issues when a sim decides to give another sim a back rub, the action won't cancel. Instead, the sim just flips their arms backwards and moves their hands, as if they are giving the other sim a back rub...when they are across the room. Seems to happen with teens only, so far I haven't had the same thing happen with adults/elders. It freaked me out the first time.

Say no to bug babies.

The first time I had it was with YAs, and there shouldn't have been any routing problem - Pigeon and Zeke were the only ones on the street. She got her points, so he gave satisfaction. I figured it was a talent of his, and a valuable one, too.

Ugly is in the heart of the beholder.

My Sim threw her cat at her husband.

He threw the baby at her.

The most scary glitch I've ever had was when one day I was at my mom's computer. She has The Sims 2 there, but her graphics card isn't that good. So I made a family and I just zoomed in to the Sim's face and... BAM! It turned black! It scared me and I jumped off the chair and fell down. This was the most scary glitch I've ever had... I will never forget it. :D

Last night, I had a long series of jump bugs that freaked me out. One of them managed to bring one of my sims back home from work a half-hour early, then she stood there and kept jumping no matter what I tried to get her to do. It went away after I turned on TestingCheatsEnabled to see what was wrong (of course). I hope this isn't something irreparable, they're one of my favorite families. ;_; I have no idea what caused it, but it was creepy as heck. Hope it doesn't happen again.

I had a similar thing but with a toddler when she was aging up to a child. For some reason the adult sim didn't put her on the floor, so when the transformation happened the (now) child was stuck to his chest which was a bit alarming Fortunately, the adult then had to go off to work and when he changed into his work clothes they were separated.

I've also had a couple of sims who keep on swimming after leaving the pool, that does look really funny

Did you put in any new hacks last night or do anything that required the use of a previously-unused hack? I had a similar problem in my own game a while back when I put in a hack that unlocked the low-level flirt options, and the main Subject lot became jump bug jamboree as a result. I exited without saving, removed the hack, and everything was good on reload.

I also had a weird jump buggish glitch back when Uncanny aged into a teen: once she got off of the bus after school, then kid-aged Verity would appear by the door to the house. It was playing havoc with Verity's grades (and causing interesting warnings from the social worker), so I had to age Verity into a teen in order to get it to stop.

Hopefully it's just hack-related instead of some character-file goofiness.

From time to time a Sim will "Jump" to another location on the lot (Sometimes to places they can't get out of, like in to a room with no doors (Yet).

The other day one went to the fridge on the first floor, and jumped to the new sun room on the second floor. There was no door, yet, so I had to add one so she could get out.

It wasn't hack related, it actually turned out to be related to how I placed the child's bed in the room - I placed it at an angle against a diagonal wall and apparently the game didn't like that, because every time her father went to go read her to sleep he jumped. I moved the bed and the jumping stopped, so yay!

A tree in my Sim's yard caught fire two days ago. The fire may have been set by her jealous ex, Tybalt Capp, who hangs around day & night. Even after several rainstorms, the tree is still burning, so I had her call the fire department. It didn't help.

The FSS Lot Debugger has an option to Nuke (Or Fix .. can't recall which) stuck sFX (Special Effects) you might try that.

Thank you RebaLynn! The Nuke option took care of the problem. Guess I can't blame it on Tybalt after all

Lol, you can blame his grouchy ass for a lot of things, but apparently not that.


The way I found out that my integrated graphics chip couldn't handle Sims 2 was the ground on the neighborhood turning blue and/or white with weird textures and the ground on individual lots was changing to all sorts of interesting textures instead of being ground.

I get that too, except it's usually hair texture. It's like having the yard carpeted with toupees.

The glitch that surprised me when I first saw it (but have learnt to live with) is kind of like a sim-erase point. I'm not sure how to title it. But whenever a sim is in a specific place on the screen (And there is a multitude of these places) they kind of disappear. Like their torso is missing and when they move, they're back again.

It's like a sim blind spot >.< And also, some of the screen flashes a light blue.

For some reason my toddlers started aging into these creepy ultra skinny children. It was as if the only thing the game did to age the Sim up was stretch the toddler body until it was as tall as a child.

Lol! Sometimes I wonder how the plumbbob (sims nerd alert xD) they fit all these grand pianos into their pocket (inventory) When sometimes it won't let me put homework into the child inventories!

Biggest glitch was this sleeping problem. It was in the alien vista, Strangetown. My Sims would go to sleep and never wake up. No matter what I did, no matter what was happening around them. Their needs moved slowly so they died really slowly... I even had another person set the house on fire, no go lol
I think my game was boolprop corrupted. I stopped playing it for about a half year, when I came back the problem was gone like it had never been!

I once had an idiot sim who lived in a trailer with his daughter run outside to see that the GARDEN LIGHT was on fire. It wasn't raining or anything. It proceeded to catch everything in the yard (patio set, tree, BBQ, him) on fire and KILL MERCILESSLY.

This one is common enough.

Moving the family out of the lot from the neighborhood screen is one way.

Another is "move_objects on" command.

The biggest (not even really big though) glitch/issue I had was this one time I was playing Veronaville like a madman.
It was all fun and games. I had played the Monty's quite a lot, so I decided to play with the Capps, to keep the progression right, with rotating households every few days and whatnot.
I switched to the Capp family. Loading...
I get to the house, and all the sims are either invisible or completely black with white blocks where their eyes should be. I exited without saving and reloaded. I tried loading the Capp house again, but my game crashed. I was like 12 at the time, so it freaked me out pretty bad.

That's REALLY creepy!

I don't know if this is just my graphics card being weird, but my sims have always dialed numbers on the phone with their knuckles.
