It is player's choice to turn off seasons and weather for their file.  You cannot change your mind later.  It's another Set it and Forget it type deal but the settings are supposed to be by save file so it shouldn't be too bad to have seasons in one file and none in another.

Rica CFE did nothing to correct the problem. Permission to try sending to clipboard, bulldoze lot and replace family?

Using Edit Town is not granted at this time.


I would rather you have the entire family visit the park while you go into build mode and use the sledgehammer to sweep the entire place.  Just don't get rid of your mausoleum in the process.  Bulldozing your lot would get rid of your mausoleum and at that point you would need to start over anyway.   Make sure all items that are required for your mausoleum are safely in the family inventory somehow before trying anything.

Also, Jaymi, if it's of any help, you might try lowering the elevation and see if maybe something to stuck in the ground (I have no idea if this works, mind you, but it sounds like a grand idea!).

Time permitting, I'll try and see if I can fix the routing glitch I also have. It's really really annoying to have them walk in the front door, hug the kitchen to the windows, walk along the windows, then make a 90 degree turn to walk across the empty space and into the entertainment room.

Per your request Rica I have sent the family off lot and moved all mausoleum pieces into the family inventory. I left all other items in place and used the sledgehammer to delete items from each floor in one sweep. I then deleted the walls and floors using the same method. I now have floating floor pieces on the second and third levels where I cannot delete because they are required by objects. I tried replacing walls on the ground floor and still have areas I cannot use because of objects being in the way.



At this point I am going to undo everything and continue on with the glitch until a better idea comes along.

When I first copied my ID file to test new house styles, I tried to delete the whole house but it wouldn't let me; same thing. I just said to Hemba with it and kept those pieces, and re-worked a test house around, keeping the un-deleteable pieces and went with it.

Have you checked if there's lights above/below the floor? It's happened to me a couple of times.

How can a light be above when it's ground foundation, no walls and no roof there?

Maybe for a next step if allowed you can evict them to the clipboard and bulldoze the lot?

Jaymi - go ahead and put them on clipboard and bulldoze the lot.   Hopefully you won't lose any of your mausoleum items.   As soon as you're done bulldozing the lot, make sure to try and place the mausoleum back.   If anything is missing and you've already gone onto the next generation, then you may need to start over.

It is just the twins. Paul, Jessika and Marianne's ages are freezed, Pierce and Kimberly ages normaly as well.
The aging never changes at all, the heir's age hasn't changed at all since he was born, his twin was aged up to a toddler the day after he was born and hasn't aged since then as well.

Try going back to a previous save if you can to see if that changes anything too.


Also: Aliens are banned from all dynasties until further notice.  All pregnancies resulting from an abduction must be returned to homeworld.

I'll see if I can find a recent file that was before they were born.

I don't know if this was already asked, but could I move in a spouse-to-be and then change their life state (e.g getting them getting bitten by a werewolf) or do they have to stay the same?

Been asked a couple of times but yes you can change the life state of the spouse.

Thank you Rica! Problem is solved! I evicted the family with house to the clipboard, bulldozed the house still on the lot, then added the family and house back to original location. All mausoleum pieces are present and accounted for, and my sims are able to move freely through the previously affected locations.

I'm glad yours got fixed!

I still have the same issue, except I don't have anything in the way at all. I was able to extend a fence from wall to wall through the affected area, and move furniture onto it.

So I'll just deal with it. ;D I slapped the train set smack in the middle of the problem area, so now they have an actual reason to walk around it.

I was able to find a relatively recent save before the twins were born.
Unfortunatly it was before Pierce had completed his requirements so I will spend some time tomorrow figuring out which ones that I have written down are still legit and which ones I need to redo.
Could have been worse the next closest file was from when Pierce was a child.

Note to self, make a dropbox back up whenever they complete their requirements so the same things won't happen again.

It has also been suggested that you use the Bio section under Simology to keep track of each heir's requirements, so anytime you have to go back you know exactly where you are.

That has proven to be a very good tip already! Thanks for that :)

Honestly it was rather easy figuring out what was missing. Funny enough the last save was merely 5 days before I completed his requirements and I lost "only" the best friend, all opportunities, one LTH reward (I think, better buy an extra just in case), 2 wishes and 3 skill challenges.

Does the masoleum need to be an actual place? Just curious, as I'm not sure where to put it in my current house. Unless there is a way to bulldoze the entire lot... *ponders*
