OK, I am facing serious problem here. I keep collecting Firefly fulvus and Firefly pratinus on AP! Why is this so. 2 Sim weeks have past and my collection remains at 25%!

What can I do to achieve perfection? I am a "completionist" by the way and I love to complete all my games. I added the necessary spawners but still I am getting these two types of fireflies again and again!

You've looked at night in the places I previously mentioned every night for two weeks and didn't see them ?  Not just where you placed spawners but where I mentioned having found some.   Also, collecting is a waiting game.  You can place spawners but you can't make them spawn.   

Were you certain that you placed the spawners in open areas where no where within the green squares were items that fireflies, butterflies and minor pets could be hiding in?   Minor Pets spawn from the same spots too so make sure to look and see if any of them are there.  Maybe you need to catch some butterflies during the day and some pets to make sure the fireflies spawn.

OK, I finally collected 88% of the fireflies. There is one more firefly which I have yet to collect and that is the Firefly luteus! This is a common firefly so why is it so hard for me to collect it in AP? Where can I find this firefly on AP?

Thanks!

The orange one was the hardest one to find out of all of them and it's only an common. 

It took me more than 2 sim weeks to find it and that was scouring lot after lot every night to find this thing.  Just keep looking as I don't remember where it was anymore

OK thanks. Is it possible to find it in the 3 travel destinations? Egypt, China and France?

Then the developers might have made a mistake. This type of firefly should be rare, not common!

OK, I am having a major issue here and hope someone can help me. I am using Twallan's traveler mod by the way. So far, I collected 88% of unique fireflies. Then, I decided to travel to China. To my dismay, when I reached there, the percentage of unique fireflies collected showed 25%! The other collections like butterflies and beetles are shown correctly but not the fireflies. When I returned home, the percentage of fireflies collected dropped to 12% !

I am simply frustrated! I guess Twallan never foresee the problem of fireflies being collected. The same principle applied to analyzing of rocks but with the mod, it solved the rock issue but not the fireflies issue.

What can I do now? Can someone inform Twallan to fix this issue? Is anyone else facing the same problem?

I guess trying o achieve the perfect Sim seems impossible with all these bugs!

Once twallan is aware of an issue he usually fixes it pretty fast.  If you report it to him on his wiki - http://nraas.wikispaces.com/ - then he would get it even faster.

Then I'm sure twallan has already added it on his list of "Things to do" and will get to fixing it eventually.

Just be patient and keep checking his wiki for updates.

OK, I have finally collected 100% of the fireflies but my happiness was short lived. This is the reason:

This was BEFORE I installed Twallan's traveler mod.

When I analyzed the unique number of rocks before the mod was installed, I traveled and unsurprisingly, the percentage of rocks analyzed dropped. So I installed the traveler's mod and the issue was fixed...so it seems. When I have analyzed 121% of unique rocks, the sentence pertaining to "Awesome Rock Collector in the Universe" was not BOLD in colour! It had seemed that I have not collected 100% of the rocks but 121% of the rocks!

I am deeply frustrated as I am trying to create the perfect Sim where all his attributes are being maximized!

Is anyone else facing the same issue?

Must I start ALL over again in creating that elusive perfect Sim where all his attributes are being maximized? And yes, I am a hardcore Sims 3 player. I am very, very disappointed. I should have installed the mod BEFORE traveling!

I've been having a bit of trouble collecting the fireflies. I've been readin through this post to try and find outwhat was going on. I have collected all but the blue firefly. I have searched 2 vacation destinations and the home neighborhood for many a sim night. Not once have I come across a blue firefly, although I have across the others in adundance. My skill journal says I have collected 25% of all fireflies but have completed the skill challenge for fireflies. Any ideas or tips? Thank you.
