Diversity in body shapes is possible. Unfortunately in TS2 body types and skin tones are intertwined. "True" body shapes are determined by the meshes upon which the skin tones are applied if you want the shapes to remain consistent when unclothed. But you can get pseudo-body shape differences by using body-shaped clothing by itself as long as you don't care that your Sims are default sized when truly nude (e.g in the shower). However you do it though, different body shapes does require additional custom content in TS2.

I am trying out a set of skins by Virtual Alex (here on MTS); he made 49! skins, geneticized & townified. I only have 11, but will change it; his dark skins are SUPER dark, and there are too many in my hood. Also it looks like my default aliens don't come out right; I have LOTS of alien skins (some geneticized) that now never show up.

When you accidentally have a reset for no reason that not only makes you have to reinstall ACR and rerun the randomizer (at least this gaveme the opportunity to increase me numbers of gay and bi Sims), but also reset the Sim Blender so now you have to reset that for every single Sim!

Aemilia Romana has had 4 sets of twins thanks to both her and her husband having the fertility perk. Here she is giving birth for a fifth time, and I'm expecting both of their "Have 10 Kids" wants to be fulfilled. It was one baby!! Argh!! Sorry Aemilia, you've still got one pregnancy left.

My Dodge residents in the BACC have a ton of work to do on the community service center to get it expanded enough to fit in a toddler nursury area to allow sims to bring their little ones before they can lift the conterception requirement and finally be allowed to try to have babies.It's likely to be a rule that babies can't be born if there's nothing to accomodate them on any community lots as my sims almost always take toddlers along on outings unless one adult is staying home.

Sims having to hire babysitting services before adding a Mod to allow them to take the toddlers along to community lots was installed.I've not had that issue for so long I almost forgot what it was like to not have any choice except to get a sitter for that toddler and sometimes leaving one adult at home because they couldn't afford the sitter.

Don't know if it has already been said but when graves are sideways from the neighborhood view. Oftentimes when you place a grave on a lot it will want to be facing a certain way and the neighborhood view does not always represent what is looks like on the lot. That's why I downloaded clickable graves to cover up the already existing graves to they all face the same direction.

Sometimes my own mistakes! I've installed something that has stopped the semester clock on community lots in Uni. This does not fit in with my style of play. I've not added anything lately that even has anything at all to do with Uni so I have no idea where to begin. *banging my head on desk* The only thing I've added was a friendly break up mod, a couple of party mods and nonflammable xmas tree mod. Let me tell you this really make me go Grrrrr.....

One was how fast semesters used to flash by when I was playing on campus in my old unmodded games on my old computer.I could never get anything done if they were allowed to try everything campus related out as that left no time to get the best grading and left them at risk of flunking out.I won't have to worry about that anymore with the hacks to fix that issue by freezong the clock for breaks and restarting it again when they've had a long enough break.

Having too many limitations of how much you can do in a newly started town and getting so bored that you try to grow it too fast and start getting lotst and confused about what should be happening with the sims or you end up failing to progress some families while others move ahead too far.That's why I'm writing out BACC rules and making sure I can follow them so I get to build my town up.

I've honestly never tried a BACC, or a complicated challenge, especially because of this. It seems like a lot of work - I am always impressed by those who can stick with it.

Keep is up, and have just a couple exceptions so it doesn't frustrate you too much, or play a different hood for the variety you need.

@TadOlson The one time I tried a BACC many many moons ago, I had a similar issue. I set up a strict farming only community in the Riverside falls set. Spent an enormous amount of time gathering CC and making all the sims and once I finally got in there to play it I found it kind of boring and I lost my prime directive. Your Dodge actually sounds interesting you have really good ideas on how to make spaces function, I really like your service lots idea. I agree with Coriel though you might want to have a different hood to play occasionally just for a bit of variety.

I've decided that some of the drama I can't use as a story to play out in my game can be used to make a backstory for why a cuple came to the town and made the decision to start over with their lives or why they went so far from their home and family.I'll use some ideas I have like using the Simloical prision tags to act out some of my sims being snowed in at home or quarentiend for an old illness like in the old days.I'll play out them having a drought and the fears that crops might fail or that they might run out of water and not be able to continue living there.It might be flooding from too much rain for too long or too much snow traps them at home.Econimic struggles and the drama of forming a collective community are also possiblities as I have a Mod to get families together to meet each other and get to know each other.

I've probably whined about this before, I can't remember, but I'm sorting neighbourhood deco so I'm gonna complain anyway about creators who don't change the name of the thing they cloned hood deco from. This log is not a Road Arch. That water tower is also not a Road Arch. And those traffic lights? Not a Road Arch either!
ETA: On that note, everything doesn't have to be a landmark. If it's a rock or a tree, perhaps consider putting it in the stone or flora categories, that's what they're there for.

Oh, that made me think. My bathrooms always look one of two ways - pristine, white, and boring, or black, chic, and marbled. Which, when you think about it, isn't that 'chic' if EVERYONE has it. I need to put more character into them...

Yes, I totally agree with you on that! As much as I love their content, I find that leoz94 is particularly notorious for this. I suppose I can deal with it but it's particularly frustrating when you can't tell WHAT the item is, and it's under the title 'road arch'.

The way this game handles children in vacation hoods. Curfew is completely out the window and kids show up at lots they have no business ever being at. I've tried banning them using Visitor Controller and that does nothing. It's just weird to have a nightclub have my sims go to it after 9 pm and see a bunch of children running around. They also don't have the option of ordering in a restaurant which leads to them stealing food another of my big pet peeves.

I read somewhere that when a Sim is holding a baby, they forget why. So they just stand there like the idiots they are. And then put baby on the floor (yes, even with mods); then seem to realize the baby needs to go to bed. And the nanny does one more irritating thing - she PREFERS to put the baby in the toddler bed, where it sometimes can't be picked up. And why is the nanny obsessed with entertaining herself, but won't eat? And I just discovered that when there are black piles of stuff all over the lot (a big fire...don't ask) a Sim will sweep up one pile, ignore the one right next to it, walk to the other side of the lot to sweep a pile..and continue walking randomly all over the D... lot. Why don't they sweep like they mop, in one area at a time.

I used to have a peeve with not having enough singe bed options for sims living in small spaces until recently when I went CC shopping and downloaded a new chair bed option and installed it in my game.I've got better choices for apartments or other small living spaces like the ohmes built by homesteaders in their first year.
