Meteors
« on: June 10, 2010, 11:22:45 AM »
I usually send my sim, Josh down to the consignment shop to see what's on sale on most days.  This time when he clicked into his truck a sign appeared, all pink..."Josh noticed it getting dark all of a sudden."  I kept looking around but there was nothing weird I could see.  He gets to the consignment shop and I panned out to look around and see smoke coming from his house.  :o  I send him home and there are meteors everywhere.  Between him (daredevil) and the girl across the street, they managed to put out the fire.  He got about $5,000 from all the meteors lying around.  I was so shocked I never got any pics.  :D

So if you see one of these signs, move fast cause you're about to get smacked.  :D

Very exciting!  I can't wait for something like this to happen in my game.  So far I haven't even had an earthquake, and I have not one but TWO level 10 firefighters!

Oh wow, So cool. I didn't know those could happen to someone who was not a firefighter. I thought it would be a job for them. Awsome. Can't wait for it to happen in my game.

I had a meteor shower when one of my sims was using the telescope.  It destroyed everything that was outside and left big craters.  The money realized by selling the meteors barely covered the cost of replacing everything.  If, as I read somewhere, meteor showers are more likely when sims are using telescopes, my sims will be doing without their telescopes in future.

According to the Prima Guide, if you see that shadow overhead, you better run! It will kill your Sim it if strikes in the right spot.

Hrm... I think I better move my family into an actual house before I buy a telescope then.  Right now they're living in the wild outdoors.   ;D

It happened to me while I was at work, it sizzled everybody who worked in the Hospital, and it killed my boss Morgana Wolff.  This was my 3rd or 4th day of work.  I didn't get a new boss, and didn't get any more books to read for research.

How on earth did you fulfil the Research meter without the books?! Or was it through doing the new Ambitions related activities?

I didn't.  The Research Meter stayed at Yellow the entire game.  I made it to World Class Surgeon with both my Sims regardless.  (I am playing an "ER" game, since i am new to the Sims, and I thought having my two Sims in the same profession would simplify things to start).

"ER" was a TV show that is very popular and the series just ended within the last year or so I believe.

Something I forgot to mention:  after the meteor shower that destroyed all my sim's outdoor possessions, she had a constant "disgusted" moodlet on her lot.  I couldn't find anything that would have been causing that moodlet - I had filled in the big craters outside, and as far as I could tell, there was nothing different inside the house.  I didn't want to deal with that negative moodlet every time she was at home so I wound up deleting the game.

Or you could have just gotten rid of the moodlet.  Just a thought.

Sure I could have moved, but I was playing a private investigator and frankly, it got boring very quickly.  I likely wouldn't have played that game much longer anyway.  It would have been nice to know what was causing that disgusted moodlet though, in case it ever happens again.  Saltypaws, how would you get rid of the moodlet?  And if you did, wouldn't it just come back unless you got rid of whatever was causing it?

If you have testingcheatsenabled true just control+click it and the moodlet goes away. I don't know if it would come back though! I don't know if I'm lucky or unlucky. I have not had any crazy things like that! I think I'm gonna start a new game and use the telescope, see if I can get some crazy screenshots!

EDIT Well I started a new game. It is now Week 2 Day 6 and other than finding 5 meteors,3 large 2 gigantic and finding a $7552 star, nothing weird has happened.

I guess all my games are weird-free!  >:(


Yippee! Week 3 Day 3 a meteor hit! it was very fun! I got singed from it and alot of peeps caught on fire! No one died though!

Ok, after its said and done, I'm not sure I like that! I had me a little garden right beside my 2 telescopes and the meteor took out one of my telescopes which is no biggie, but then it also messed up my plants! So I planted another garden on the other side of the lot far away from my telescope! I'm hoping I can still salvage my cheese and egg plants because I had just gotten them to perfect! If I can, I'm planting the rest away from my telescope!

Saltypaws, how would you get rid of the moodlet?  And if you did, wouldn't it just come back unless you got rid of whatever was causing it?

Chances are it would come back if the game is bugged.  I've had that happen before and had to give up that game file.

You can get rid of moodlets by turning testingcheatsenabled true on and then shift clicking the moodlet.

If the moodlet is just stuck like mine was, it never did come back, but if there is something that you cannot find that is making the disgusted moodlet, then it will probably come back.  So far I have use testingcheats about three times to get rid of it and it did not come back.

Thanks for posting this Schipperke.  That's exactly what has happened to my sim, except his disgusted moodlet happens when he goes into the bedroom, next to where the meteor hit.  I have used testingCheatsEnabled, shift/click several times and the moodlet just comes right back.  I was thinking of moving him to another house, so I guess that's what I'll have to do. ::)

No one would believe me if I did not have pictures.  I started crazy eights challenge.  My sim went downtown to get the first two books, then the sky goes dark:

Bam, first meteor:



Then the second two hit:





Guess where it landed:




You got it, right on my challenge character, here is grimmy:





And poof, she is gone:



I had only started 10 minutes ealier, can you believe that.  So, since this is part of the game, I suppose that ends this challenge for me and I totally understand, it was just unfortunate.  See I should not have complained that I had not had a meteor.  Good grief, lol.

My character is 3 weeks in-game, and no meteors whatsoever.
