HELP ME! / Re: I need help! Mod Folder broken
« on: May 29, 2018, 09:16:23 pm »
This happened to me after the Jungle Adventure GP...as someone else already mentioned, the 50/50 method may be your best - this is what worked for me.

Forgot to come back and update this post...

I placed the teleporter too close to the other teleporter. When one sim teleported to the first spot, the second sim overlapped the first sim which caused the first sim to pop out of place.

Ha! I wish...
I've been searching for one since City Life came out. Those hallways are tragic. Even the high class apartment hallways are tragic - very unrealistic.

Let's cross our fingers and hope they give us an update that includes the ability to edit the halls.


I have the latest version of Andrews Pose Pack. For some reason, while attempting to take a group photo, my sims refuse to stay seated and keep jumping up from out of their poses to "see what's happening" or to do whatever else they feel like doing (eating, playing on the computer, watching television, etc.). I turned autonomy off but they're still doing their own thing.

Is anyone else having this issue? I'm wondering if it's a mod such as MCC or my UI Cheat mod. I will remove these two mods from my game and if this solves my issue I'll come back and update the post in case anyone else is looking for a fix....but if it doesn't work, I'd like some assistance from anyone that has any clue as to what's going on.

Is it just me? Are my sims just bad?!  :P

**ETA: Removed MCC and UI Extensions Cheat...I still can't get my sims to pose correctly. I'll try repairing my game in the morning.

HELP ME! / Re: CC on external hard drive?
« on: June 12, 2017, 03:19:02 pm »
There is a way around having to keep your CC in the My Documents folder. It's called making a junction/symlink(symbolic link). That way you can actually store your CC/Mods/Whatever in a completely different folder or drive and the game will still read it as being in the My documents folder where it's 'supposed to be'.

Yes, this includes putting it on an external drive, but I will warn you outright: Storing any of the files for the game (CC, Mods, Game files, etc) on an external drive WILL increase your lag time. If you have a higher grade USB port and a higher grade USB plug on the external drive, then it might not be so bad, but there will still be increased lag because of the time it would take your comp to read the external and basically 'push it through' to the rest of the comp. Also, external drives tend to spin more slowly (unless you sink in good money for a higher speed drive) which also means more load time. (The slower a drive spins, the longer it takes the comp to access the data on the drive, this goes for internal and external drives.)

Personally speaking, if you really want to get the most out of your gaming experience, then a computer upgrade is most definitely in order, especially if you intend on using a lot of CC. That means a decent graphics card (or two, depending on what your ultimate goal is), a quality processor, and as much RAM as you can get away with. Also, how you organize and maintain your CC will directly contribute to your load times and performance. Removing spaces and special symbols from the file names (CC only, not script mods or anything that's a part of something like Wicked Whims or MCCC), and merging packages will cut down on load times. Just make sure that if you merge packages, keep the unmerged files in a separate location and organized by which files went into which merged packages, that way if you need to update or edit your merged packages you know exactly where everything is and you'll save yourself a headache and heartache down the road.

Long story short, here is a link that very adequately describes the process for making a junction/symlink. I've done it with my CC and put all my CC on a solid state drive so I have space and improved load times. Husband and I built my rig with an eye specifically towards gaming, so if you have any other questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask.

I decided to do a quick search before asking this exact question and voila. I did fork out a bit of money on a Passport HD/USB a few months back that has 4TB of storage so I'm hoping this will do the trick once I do a junction/symlink. I'm going to try this out within the next hour or so. Thanks for the link!!

HELP ME! / Re: Anyone having problems since the origin update?
« on: June 01, 2017, 03:38:28 pm »

My sims have constant flashing positive/negative moodlets. I have to turn off headline effects to get them to go away.

No problem! I hope I explained it well enough!!  ;)

HELP ME! / Re: The new sims update.
« on: May 29, 2017, 04:50:30 pm »
I'm not having that problem, but I did begin having issues with my gameplay. When I select a household, my load screen appears and then it goes back to the main menu. I removed my script mods for now - once they're updated (after the new pack is released), I'll try them again.

My game is currently loading without the script mods so hopefully this issue won't continue.

HELP ME! / Re: Need help please

I think I can help you.
On the upper right hand corner of the post you'd like to quote, please the word "quote" or simply "reply" to your vault. If press "reply," go to the bottom of the screen and find the post you'd like to add to and press "Insert Quote" which will populate the message you'd like to quote. Once your quote populates in the text field by either pressing "quote" or "reply" then "Insert Quote," at the bottom or the top of the quoted message, press the "Insert Quote" button at the top of the text box (see the smiley face emoji's? above them, there's a thought bubble icon that says "Insert Quote" when you hover over it). You should get this: [*quote]  [*/quote] -- without the stars, though. You can also just type it out if you don't want to go through the hassle of clicking the button. You can copy the code and paste it on top of your original message or on the bottom of your original message depending on how you want your latest addition to your vault to show up.

so, for example I'll quote you:
hello i am want to make a Post in my Vault with Quote"
but when i make it it is false
dont look like these

on this Topic the new one goes under the first one with a short brake line and when i make a quote it makes a new re entry at the last Site with the first entry at the above.
What make i false and how can i make these like this

and now I'll add my new quote to the bottom here:

Quote my entire response to you to get a view of the codes

I hope this helped!

HELP ME! / Re: Mccc or wickedwhims broke my game?
« on: May 29, 2017, 08:06:13 am »
^^and if that doesn't work, you have another mod conflicting with the MCC commander mod. Can you try removing your other script mods from the game and only loading the game with the MCC commander mod to see if that works?

HELP ME! / Re: Mccc or wickedwhims broke my game?
« on: May 29, 2017, 08:05:00 am »
i have  question my mc command doesn't load in my game  can some one help me get it to work

Did you have it installed previously? Meaning, did you update the Mod and decide to replace your old files with the new ones? If so, search through your Mods folder for any MCC related files and delete them. Then, get your new MCC Mod download, extract the files and drop them into your Mods folder.

This happened to me once before. I somehow had old files and new files mixed together and the mod wouldn't show up in game until I did the fix above.

HELP ME! / Re: Is there a way to place lots closer together?
« on: May 26, 2017, 12:53:11 pm »
Without a world editor, it is unlikely. But there are creators out there who make lots for an entire neighborhood. I don't know anyone who completely built Newcrest though.

You can "fake" this by using a 64x64 lot, and building multiple buildings in it.

Or you can use lots already by each other, and scale up building items/fake city scapes by the edge of the lot. They will overlap into the next lot, faking the lots are connected.

Thanks for the responses! I'm going to try rebuilding my lots on a 64x64 lot to see what it looks like...
I can't believe we were able to do more in previous packs yet on the 4th installment, we're so limited. Eh...

HELP ME! / Is there a way to place lots closer together?
« on: May 26, 2017, 08:22:56 am »

I have several lots I'd like to place in Newcrest. The only issue I'm having is the inability to have a seamless placement. I want the lots to look connected all the way down the block (two lots worth of space). There'd been a way in both TS2 and TS3 to do this - is there a cheat in TS4 which would allow me to place my lots anywhere? Or, is this impossible in TS4? :o

Treat yourself and get 7Zip. It's better and completely free! Here

7Zip is a breeze. Love it! @Op, definitely uninstall Winzip and install 7Zip

HELP ME! / Re: what is causing my sims to shine??
« on: May 13, 2017, 07:19:17 am »
This is definitely an issue on Macbooks. I played solely on a Macbook with all kinds of setting - nothing worked for me after a while. I eventually transferred all of my CC over onto an Intel Core i7. I haven't seen greasy sims since.
