I think I'll stick a shower in the inventing room. Better safe than sorry.

However, all these plants are in the buyDebug menu, so you can just place them out yourself with Edit Town when you start the game.
There are plenty of players who want to play the game as it's meant to be played.  It's a hassle to create the game through Buydebug when those things should already be in town somewhere.
True, but it could be a solution for the people who want to walk that extra step.

Besides cheating, I believe you can't solve this problem so easily and if you'd like a death flower you'll have to grow one yourself from scratch. :-\
I am also unable to find a flower in the graveyard.

I've not actually played in Twinbrook yet, but do any deathflower seeds spawn around or near the graveyard? Maybe EA forgot the place the plant but not the seed spawners?
Grr Argh!

Seeds spawn as usual around the graveyard, so you're perfectly possible to grow your own death flowers.

I finally got Ambitions on Tuesday:) Of course I've spend every free hour playing and I must say that I like it so far.

I started out with two sims; Annabelle and Ambrosius Artès. She is a sculptour and he is an inventor. For the first weeks they lived in one of the smallest houses and kept almost all their stuff outside but yesterday I built them a mansion. Now they have loads of money and twin girls; Beatrice and Bellatrix. I'm planning to make one of the twins a firesim and the other an investigator, can't wait!

By the way, I had to uninstall WA to run Ambitions. Don't really miss it much except for the fact that it is now much harder to finish collecting challenges:/ The gems I've got from mining don't seem to count and that kinda sucks.

I don't understand this comment. Why did you have to uninstall WA?

Because my computer is too old to run the game with both EP's :/

Is that a hardware, or software issue? (I hope you will say software.)

I got Ambitions a couple of days ago, and played mainly with my swampy Ghostbuster. Banishing spirits, exorcising items and talking with ghosts is awesome. The clothes the ghosts have are cool too. The ghost who wears knight's armor looks supremely cool when blue (drowned). Overall, a neat expansion pack and I'm looking forward to the future EP's (Knowing EA, I'm sure they'll make others).

That's the strangest thing.  For my computer which is borderline, by installing both EP's, it actually overheats less.  I used to, with just WA and base, have to alt-tab out and be in windowed mode every few minutes to let my GPU cool off.  Now I can run it nonstop in full screen mode.  CAS was REALLY bad and now is also so I don't have to tab out.  Bummer :(

Hmm that's weird. My game runs much better with Ambitions than it did with WA. I want a new computer but untill then I do just fine without WA. I had finished all the adventures and it was starting to bore me anyway.
 @Leto I have no idea whether it's hardware or software LOL. I'm clueless when it comes to computers and related stuff. But I think the problem is mainly with the screencard

I got Ambitions 6 days ago and so far am loving it!

Twinbrook is an interesting place to live. So far my favorite "hidden" money maker is salvaging things from the junkyards and calling the repairman to come fix it for me.  :D   My Sim decided to buy her first home unfurnished so she could buy the Architect's table and an easel. She also bought a bed. The rest of her furniture was restored junkyard finds. It was interesting to see what kind of things she would find each day after work.

Anyway, my second 'favorite'  ::)  thing is that, so far, 3 out of 5 babies born in my town have died in a fire before reaching childhood. Of the babies still alive one child is my Sim's and the other is the youngest, so I'm still waiting to read his name in the paper along with "pile of ashes." It's horrible. When I get fed up with it I'll start a new Twinbrook and see if the same thing happens.

Over all, loads of fun! I'm so glad I bought this just before my week off from work.

@ Lisbeth, if the problem lies on your graphic card you could considering of replacing it. Of course, if your motherboard supports newer cards.

I put a new graphics card in my computer shortly after I first bought Sims 3 and it made a world of difference.  It stopped the lagging and crashing I was experiencing and the beauty of the game was awesome!

I did the same thing and I agree 100%.

I've ordered a whole new system myself! Not replacing something, but starting over entirely! A huge machine that I will connect with my LCD tv. Then I will have a total new experience with Ambitions. :D
It's expensive, true, but then I will have no lagging (and hopefully crashing) with The Sims 3 anymore. :D

I play on my less than a year old laptop and it's great. Just wondering though. Does anyone know if there is a big difference between 32 bit and 64 bit? My laptop will upgrade to 64.

I don't think you'd really see an improvement moving up to 64. 64-bit is generally more memory-intensive and hasn't really proven to bring faster speeds for most consumer games and apps just yet. Someday, every program will be written in only 64-bit and we'll all do best to move up. If you don't already have a 64-bit OS I wouldn't consider upgrading to one.

You may see a very very small increase in speed but I do not recommend it...

I love ambitions, and have all the packs installed. I can play the game fine, but the launcher is acting weird. Every time I start it, it says "THERE WAS AN ERROR DURING START-UP. PLEASE SEE LOG FOR MORE DETAILS" What do I do? ???

I'm sorry for the delay in answering, Staraptor.  A belated welcome to the forum!  Please post your question on the Technical Board to get some help.  This thread is only for discussions of first impressions of Ambitions.  I think you'll get more help that way.  :)
