My last session I was playing a family I had not played for a longer time. One of the adult males on the lot had lost 3 (!) want slots. I have not a clue why they were blank. I have had sims whit a blank slot before but three! I let him get a little tired and after some sleep all 4 was back to normal.

1: My nanny was blue yesterday with only a head there wasn't
2: A guitar played itself in the air after a simmer rescued her husband from death.

I had a 0-point shy toddler dancing along to the radio. Every few seconds he would shift between the regular toddler dancing animation to the adult 'shy dancing' animation (levitating in the air). it was really something to see.

A long long time ago, I made a thread about this:

http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=331274

Later in the thread I DID post screenshots/videos of it, but now all those links are expired (because it was nearly ten years ago). I think I still have them somewhere at home, I'll look later.

I have a video of it too. That's my Gravekeeper flailing around in the backyard. The toddler is his alien son.

Oh man, I can't believe how well the dancing (of both sims) fits the music. Especially when the toddler does the "shy flloaty" dance

this happened back in December 2016 before my laptop crashed (not caused by the game); I was cycling through the 'randomize' button for a good 30 minutes before I came across this . I don't know what caused it but it sure was weird!

Everything is black when I enter apartments that NPCs own. IDK why but it sure is weird clicking around in the darkness trying to find the sim you want to befriend so now I started the "ask them to come out" instead xD

Today I encountered a child Sim who kept rolling wants to play the piano, but she couldn't interact with said piano??

Ten bucks says that's not a bug and the piano just needs to be tuned. They break, just like toilets and sinks, and need tuning before you can used them again.

Although--I have had broken pianos that were usable by some sims and not others. Right now my working theory is that up until you have a certain creativity skill level, you can bang away on an un-tuned piano and still learn something, but past that point it becomes an exercise in futility.

Don't put a piano in an asylum challenge. The thing will constantly break down.

Got a weird glitch where the cinematics are blurry and dark for some reason? Funny when you first see it but after a while gets annoying. I'll have to post a picture when I'm next getting it haha. Likely CC in all honesty but I'm already fixing my game for a crashing issue so I'm not doing the 50/50 method twice!

Could it be your graphics card acting up?

Nope, all the other Sims aged teen and elder were able to play it, but two different child Sims couldn't interact at all.

Hack conflict, perhaps?

Not exactly a glitch per se, but I just moved a couple into a new apartment and every single female neighbour is wearing the wedding veil hairstyle with normal clothes. It's a hipster downtown area so I'm playing it as the latest hipster trend.

today in my BACC hood,a childs body was turned red and was stuck in an idle position of hands out straight and legs standing still,i solved it by changing the kids clothes but then it happened to his sister right before they went shopping and so my game froze.

here is an example of it happening in pleasantview:

You're straining your machine. Make sure it's using the correct graphics card, take precautions against overheating, and if it happens a lot consider turning down your graphics settings.

Try to delete your thumbnails before starting the game next time as well. I can't say it will help, but it is worth a try. @Emerald1234

It does help for pink flashing - I had a quite dignified looking elder Matthew Picaso digging in a trash can with his body flashing pink once and deleting the thumbnails did fix that.

Pink flashing textures is caused by the game running out of video memory - if it happens just once or twice, it's likely just the game's been running too long, but if it happens multiple times you may want to check out this tutorial on increasing it.

Some time back, I once thought it'd be fun to have a Sim propose to his girlfriend during a party, so I temporarily made him selectable and had him do so. But in the moments between making him unselectable again and the actual proposal, he managed to get turned around the wrong way. He's not the sharpest tool in the drawer anyways - a previous iteration of him had a few baby problems.
