Bonehilda
« on: September 08, 2012, 10:31:52 PM »
I wanted to warn everyone to not have Bonehilda and a maid, the maid will quit. A maid I hired to see if she would quit, said ''You'll never turn me into the walking dead''. The funny thing is the maid is a werewolf, I do love The Walking Dead reference though. In the first Sims game the human maid would quit also. I haven't checked the butler yet, but I doubt they'll quit.
Edit: If you do have both on the lot, make sure Bonehilda is in her closet.
We are of peace, always but this is war.
We are of peace, always.
We'll help build a resistance. We have to fight.

When all you've ever loved has been stolen from you, sometimes all you have left is revenge.
For the truly wronged, satisfaction can be found in one of two places,  absolute forgiveness or mortal vindication. This is not a story about forgiveness. When deception cuts this deep, someone has to pay.

One of my sims had a wish to get Bonehilda, hilarious  ;D  She continuously gets cereal, jam and bread etc out of the fridge and leaves them on the table, apparently feeling the family is incapable of opening the fridge themselves ;),  then if they don't get eaten within 30 seconds or so, puts them back in the fridge ::)
We could learn a lot from crayons:
Some are sharp, some are pretty,
Some are dull, some have weird names,
And all are different colors....but
They all exist very nicely in the same box.

I had a sims who is terrified of Bonehilda. It's funny, she just can't stand her as a maid.

I had the same thing. The sim just started running in the opposite direction every time she saw her.

Do you mean that they don't get the embarrassed moodlet when she walks in on them? Because my sims do get the moodlet when she walks in on them. Maybe it depends on what traits the sim has?

I only played with Bonehilda once... she was too inefficient (I like cleaning to be quick), but that could be because the lot I was in somehow had roaches that wouldn't die.

I also have problems with Bonehilda not working efficiently. I let her out of her box a couple of times and after she does a couple of chores, she then proceeds to annoy my pets. She constantly tries to pet my cat, which resets his action queue (he hisses at her every time she tries ;D), as long as my cat is awake and on lot. If my small dog is awake and on lot, then she'll try to teach him a new trick (rather funny to watch, but she'll just keep on teaching him new tricks at the expense of not letting him do anything else). So I ended up leaving her in her box (which looks cool anyway for a $4000 decoration...) and hired a butler (who also has annoying problems with the Supernatural EP, but that discussion is for another thread).

 So does anyone else have Bonehilda constantly interacting with their pets instead of working?

I wish Bonehilda would interact with my pets! I find their social needs annoying sometimes...she DOES interact constantly with the nooboos, waking them up from a dead sleep; I had to dismiss her because the toddlers were always too tired to learn their toddler skills. I heard someone else mention this on the forum as well.

I think Bonehilda is like other service Sims in that she has a few traits that spawn randomly when you buy her. For example, the first time I had her she was constantly doing this boxing mannerism that I think is associated with athletic. Due to certain things, I had to 'rebuy' her - and she doesn't do it anymore, like she's a different Sim. Maybe your Bonehilda has animal lover or something. I'd try to rebuy her and see if she behaves any differently...

I heard someone say that their Bonehilda went to a nightclub and didn't come back for three days. My Bonehilda did autonomously go to the park at one point. It's important to note that she can glitch and just stay still, but when this happened to me I was able to dismiss and reawaken her to fix it. So if she's not being useful, she might have glitched out on you.

She wouldn't leave the dog alone until she taught him all the tricks. After he learned all the tricks she's always trying to pet him but every time she tries he bites her. But he probably looks at her thinks. Yummy, bones. :)

My Bonehilda acts like a burglar alarm. As soon as the burglar music came on she went outside and fought him. He didn't have a chance to get in the house.

The pattern for my Bonehilda seems to be to clean satisfactorily at first, then she moves on to food/drink prep, then she won't leave my dog alone, endlessly teaching him tricks.  The pattern I'm seeing here is that you are expected to put her away when the work is done - you can't just leave her out 24/7 and the longer you do, the more of an annoyance she becomes.

Unlike others here, she doesn't endlessly prepare food for my family, but bar drinks.  I had a hilarious realization the other day that my favorite Sim has developed a drinking problem over the past few (human) months.  He never went near the bar in the beginning, then one day he tried it.  For the next week he'd prepare drinks once in a while.  Then it became all the time...  Now I can barely keep him away from the darn bar when I leave him on his own!  Enter Bonehilda, who obviously realizes that the master of the house has no use for autumn salads.   ;D

Yes we have roaches in the game Pam. They are part of the bugs, I was weirded  out the first time my sim caught one.

As sdhoey said, there are indeed roaches as a collectible insect (although why anyone would want to collect roaches is beyond me).  But I've never seen those swarms of roaches that used to appear in the earlier Sims games.  And I don't think I've ever seen them on a residential lot either.

Some of the starter homes will have a challenge attached too them when you first start the game and one of those is a bug infestation and they will have roaches crawling around on the lot. Maybe orawnge is on one of those lots.

I forget if it was Twinbrook in the swamps or Riverview near the Broke household, but I remember collecting some roaches and the house was not infested (meaning I didn't get a challenge for it before moving in or anything). I was all excited to see bugs on my land and so was my sim - I was rather disappointed to see that they were roaches and they weren't worth anything (my simself didn't seem to mind though...weirdo).

But anyway, yes, Bonehilda - sadly I haven't been able to fully play yet as I forgot to lower my graphics after reinstalling all EPs through Generations, and then installing Supernatural & Pets so my game crashed to desktop right after making a witch in CAS (luckily I had saved her shortly before it happened). Assuming I don't have to upgrade my RAM too (crossing fingers), one of the first purchases I plan to make is Bonehilda so that my werewolf won't need the neat trait and can focus on cooking and gardening for his evil witch mistress, hehe.

Unfortunately I found Bonehilda unusable. My cats are awake when my Sims sleep, but since I would invariably forget to put Bonehilda away I had no other means to do so other than waking my Sim. Bonehilda however would constantly try to pet the cats - and would follow them everywhere in order to do that, constantly interrupting them and rendering it impossible for my pets to do anything. Shame, really, I found her useful otherwise.

Roaches in Sims 3? 

I shouldve explained that better. I moved into a lot in twinbrook that got the insect challenge. The guy who comes to take the bugs didn't get the roaches for some reason. When I used bonehilda, she spent all of her time trying to kill them and failing, hence her ineffeciency.

Ach! The one thing I hired her for was to help with my pet's social needs, that's the one thing she won't do.

I have noticed in Moonlight Falls that there is more roaches than any other insect and also that every lot that I live in, both empty or pre-exsisting house has insects and gem spawners which in buydebug come under alchemy spawners.

Is Bonehilda a supernatural, or a normal sim in a locked outfit/skin, or an object similar to Ms. Crumplebottom in the Sims 2

She is an item that acts as a maid and can't be added to households or player controlled.
