Tuatha's Garden: aka The Little Island in France
« on: August 24, 2012, 02:44:11 AM »
I'm very, very stuck in this tomb. It's not the part where you have to put one statue on the two floor tiles. It's later on in the dungeon. You get to a part where you're standing in the hallway, and you must enter a doorway into a room with a tight spiral wall and a "stand on" tile. My sim won't go through the doorway, she acts like something is in the way or perhaps the door way/walls are too close to each other. I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere else. Am I missing something?

There should be a way in, sometimes sims won't walk where you want them to because there is a trap in the way, hover your mouse over the floor to see if that is the case, the mouse symbol will change and the options to inspect/disarm/attempt to cross will show up if a trap is there. Have you tried putting up the walls? There might be a wall trap or a switch you need to activate. If your sim knows how to zeneport then you can just do that to get into the next room.

Wait, I just remembered something. Is this the adventure where you have to investigate what is spooking the museum guards? Because there is a revolving door leading to another room with a stand on switch, which is a pain to get through.

Which adventure is this? Teliing us what adventure you are on would be more helpful and is like to result in more/better answers.

It's not on any adventure. I accessed the place by smashing the boulders covering the entrance. I don't have an adventure for it. I've tried Zeneporting in, but she won't for some reason, like there's not enough room to do so. I'll try to get a screenshot of it and post it on here for clarification of where I'm at exactly.

I know the spot you're talking about. I think it's simply broken...except that people seem to have gotten past it somehow! I'm also curious about any possible solution.

I've only ever had one Sims get to that floor switch without any problem.  All the rest have complained of pathing issues.  When they do that, I figure I may as well cheat and do the "teleport me here" option in testingcheatsenabled.  It doesn't feel like I'm cheating if the game is the problem not me.  ;)

I always seem to have that problem in files where cheats aren't allowed. Perhaps a martial artist can zeneport there? Sadly, the teleporter LTR and the Not So Routine Machine don't seem to be able to drop a sim into a tomb.  :-\

Zeneport definitely didn't work - I could zeneport to the outside of the door but not to any of the areas behind it.

There was another place in this tomb where a sim could walk in, but complained about pathing issues related to narrow corridors on the way out.

Is that the only way to the bottom of the dungeon? I've tried Zeneporting. I'll try testingcheatsenabled next ;<

Will it let you drag and drop an eye of hours there? I'm guessing not, since most tombs don't let you, but worth a try. I know the exact spot you mean.

I ended up just having to cheat and teleport myself into the tiny room. It's ridiculous that you can't walk into there. I tried everything.

I had the same problem a while back. Someone suggested you zeneport past that point and walk back to the foot pad. I didn't try it because of time constraints. But it should work. You can't port into the room, but you should be able to port behind it.

If you mouseover the threshold, you'll get the "can not cross" sign (circle with a slash through it). There's a similar spot in the dungeon where you get Pangu's Axe.

It's very frustrating, but it's been like that for a while. I don't see them fixing it.

I have my adventuring sim carry some ghost potions (from Generations) to get through situations like this. It actually makes tombs much easier.

Ghost potions are an excellent idea!
I, too, have been stumped in this tomb - though it work's in some games. Zenporting don't seem to work but bringing the potion was a very creative idea. I'll be sure to check it out!

I just did it this morning. I can confirm that zeneport works.

I just chose a spot up the corridor past the foot pad. Then I walked back to the foot pad. I was able to complete the rest of the dungeon with no issue. Even caught some kind of glowy butterfly which was a first for me.

Zeneport can be a little tricky. I tried doing the same thing in China and ended up three floors below where I wanted to go. So it's not 100% foolproof. But it can work.

How do you get ghost potions??  There is also a chest I can not get to either...I can get up to the doorway but my Sim won't go in.  It's the chest that you have to put a heart keystone in...it's on the same floor....any suggestions?

@61Barbi  You can make Ghost potions if you have generations its in the science bench when you have a high enough logic skill I think its level 8. As for the other thing I have no idea you could try teleporting maybe?
