about enthusiasm gain; looking at the programing of objects that build it might be a help.

Crisps & Kerosene posted a hobby enthusiasm tute here: http://crispsandkerosene.tumblr.com...bbys-enthusiasm. As for its difficulty....It's BHAV editing, so how hard it is will likely depend on your level of familiarity with that and/or whether or not you're willing to become familiar with it. My own level of BHAV-editing familiarity is currently zilch, but I have the tute bookmarked for some day when I finally get off my butt (or get ON my butt, as the case may be ) and sit down with Echo's tutorials...

I'm mostly found on (and mostly upload to) Tumblr these days because, alas, there are only 24 hours in a day.

I made topic of this some months back, but i had it happen again, so i figured out i'll write it here because tbh, i'm interested.

For some reason, my sims' gravestones keep duplicating. I have this system in my neighborhood where i put all the gravestones into the inventory of the owner of the town graveyard (summoning him to a lot, making him selectable, putting the gravestones into his inventory and then making him unselectable and poofing him out with Sim blender) so he could place them into the graveyard when he visits it. Everything to this point happens normally. But when i arrive into the graveyard, there are some duplicated gravestones next to the community phone. I have absolutely no idea what causes this. I hope it doesn't cause any corruption (I haven't played the community lot much so i haven't seen the ghosts yet). The duplicates are exactly the same as the original stones so it's not just blank stones. I wonder if the Hood checker causes this, as it sometimes asks what is the graveyard in the hood. I just think it's little annoying since my graveyard keeps filling up with these unnecessary duplicates i'm scared to delete even when i have the fixes that could allow me to do it w/o corruption.

I would guess that's it - when you run the Hoodchecker and it asks that question, it sounds like it might run the code for graves that are 'in transit' and making sure they are getting deposited at the right lot. If you want to avoid this issue, I would visit your cemetery keeper before you intend to run the HDCU and make sure there are no graves in his inventory because it seems the Hood Checker is reading those as 'in transit' ('in transit' occurs when you click on a grave on the home lot and send it via the game system to your cemetery lot - doing this is known to have the occasional issue of losing the grave in the ether and I can see why that functionality might have been included in the Hood Checker). Two graves of the same sim are not a problem, as a gravestone is just a static sim really - just like two instances of the same sim on a lot are not usually a problem, just a glitch on the part of the game. What is a problem (though not always) is the absence of the gravestone - if you're missing one, that's when you should get worried.

I am bewildered. I have a family with two teens, a child, a toddler, and an infant. The school age kids are doing very well, are happy, and helpful without complaint. However, if I use the "try for baby" command with the parents, the two eldest get angry. The boy actually ran into his parents room and started silly slapping the dad. When I checked, it showed both teens 'furious with the parents. I just don't understand. I checked their fears, and there were a couple of silly ones (i.e. "see hail") and the serious, "be rejected for first kiss" on both kids. Any ideas? Thank!

Ok, here's one: I've got a lot of teens going to college in the very near future. What I want to do is play each house, and just before they all 'grow up' to be YA, move them out (because otherwise they'll miss out on the full college experience) and keep them in the Uni bin until they're all assembled.

My question is-can it work to even up everyone's ages? (I suspect it will), and what would be the best way to do this project? By the 'move teens out' or by having them move out one at a time? (remember, this hood has a few triplet and quad mixes, and they're going to be in gender separate dorms).

I'm curious as to if this will work to keep them all together and if it'll impact the parent's finances one way or another. I do know that they take whatever is left over in family funds divided by the number of inhabitants. I just want to make this as smooth a transition as possible with as little impact on both the teens and their families.

The parents will be paying tuition out of their savings accounts, and I think whatever's left is going be a small amount. There goes the retirement fund!

Unless you've modded it, the only funds they'll take to college with them will be their scholarships. You have to use a mod or cheat to pay tuition at all, so refer to your mod creator for that.

If you want to move sims to college in a group, do it from the neighborhood screen. If you want each of the quadruplets to be alone in the family bin, move them out one at a time, it doesn't matter whether you do it by phone or from the neighborhood.

Again, unless you're modding (using a community college hack or whatever) all the sims will start at the beginning of their YA period and leave college on the first day of adulthood. This is the same regardless of whether they drop out, graduate, or manage to stay in University for an unusually long period of time. In between, they'll vary in how many semester hours they have left due to the semester clock not pausing when they leave their home lot for a campus community one. You can fiddle with their ages by playing them more slowly or more quickly, by the time you make them spend in the family bin in the main hood when they leave college, or by simply using an editing tool to add or subtract days of adulthood as suits you.

Yeah, kids take zero of their parents funds Fran. YA moving to a place of their own while living in the main hood would though, like any other move out.

Technically, in an unmodded game, sims never take money from family funds when they move out, they just get a free 20k after going into the sim bin. It's no20khandouts that causes them to leave with money from family funds.

How to fix the problem of Santa Claus (NPC) and Toddler New Year having sim wants and fears in a newly created empty neighborhood? I didn't use AnyGameStarter as I own the Ultimate Collection, but I made sure that stealth hoods are not going to be active. I have the normal number of universal Sims, but that's the only thing that scares me now. It can't be normal, am I right?

Yes, you are right! I've had 20K handout for so long I was thinking the taking part of funds was the game. So many of us here use it, it feels like part of the game.

Thank you all for your replies. They are very helpful, as these kids are a handful as it is-and college should prove to be a riot, if nothing else..and the parents will be able to start saving for their retirement almost immediately. (and take that vacation some of them were looking forward to...)

I, too, do have the No20K handout, so I'll have to make allowances for that. Those little buggers are going to have to earn this one, though. All except for Rosemary Bishop, of course. She gets everything she wants..and you can see why..in the picture below.

Although to be very fair to the young lady, she's a ultra neat, personable one, who is polite and well-mannered. It's too bad that she inherited her mother's oversexed personality...

Hoodchecker stopped asking me that after I got into the habit of using the batbox to Nuke > Global Urnstones at the beginning of each simming session. I also check for global urnstones whenever I switch to playing a different household.

Don't do that if you've just moved a grave to a graveyard but haven't yet loaded the graveyard, though. If you use that option then, it will delete the grave.

A neighborhood has to be uploaded as a specific type (main neighborhood, downtown, tropical vacation destination, etc), right? It can't be left up to the downloader where they want to place it?
