I removed all of the save files except the active one, double checked all caches were cleared, loaded up.

I can get Cars and Places Around Town. When I take her indoors, I can get Expensive Stereo System, Objects, Couch, Toys & Hobbies. Still no gym.

Chuckles, just for clarification: File A is the one in which it got stuck at the loading screen, and is the one with the successful gym photo. File B is the current problem child, and was saved 2 days prior to A (A's save is on a Saturday, B is on a Thursday). Also, thank you for your help too! I appreciate it :)

There is also a line in some of the photography subjects called <scale>. There is very little information to be found about understanding the code, but I found a short post about it on MATY. The person was complaining about not being able to select which subject out of several that you are trying to capture. It was posited that the <scale> had something to do with that. The <scale> for 'gym' is very small compared to other subjects (0.01 compared to 200!!), so this might also be a problem.

Also, just throwing it out there, try removing special seeds from inventory ;) They have wrecked havoc on all sorts of things. You never know!

No special seeds to be had! I haven't had a gardener since Nixie and Darrell - that was their special daughter/father time. Nixie has long since moved out (and works at the consignment store), and Darrell is a ghost.

Edit: BAH! I'm going to scrap this attempt, and retry it - after loading the file back up, and finding out the gym still doesn't work, I then found out that the Blooming Cactus Bistro has been replaced by the game with the Sunset Valley Bistro instead. No clue what's going on, but the aggravation isn't worth trying to fix.

Bah humbug, I say. :-\

Let me know what happens. I read here on the forum that sometimes it worked.  When I said names though I meant subject names like it registered as something while in France like "A Sim"  "A couple kissing in France" that kind of thing.
I tried all your steps but it still said that it hasn't been completed. Any other ideas?

So my sim just married Argus Brown, and no option came up asking where they wanted to live (just one sim in house) and he doesn't live with her... how do I fix this?

It's a known bug from the patch before Seasons - just ask Argus to move in through friendly interactions.

I don't have seasons (my computer doesn't run sims all that great, seasons would probably kill it) but thank you! Will try it when load up game.

So apparently feeding Argus many magic jellybeans is a bad idea... can I use the 10k wish to resurect him as one of the unique wishes? Do I still get to count marrying him as one of the 5k wishes? What if she remarries, can I count that as a seperate wish? *Confused and sad* One final thing, is aging up another sim without moving them in allowed? I'd love to age up Jules Macduff...unless there are other single male witch sims. :)

Yes you can rezz him.   Yes it counts as a wish.   Yes you count marrying him.   No she can't use that as a separate wish because Argus is the only mate/spouse she's allowed to have. You can only move in one person per heir other than children.  Yes you can age up someone outside the house.

So... Am I allowed a different husband since he passed, or must I use him? Thank you for answering all my questions. Don't think I'd be allowed to use him as ghost since I made him eat the jellybeans. Wanna make sure before proceeding

You have to use him.  You're only allowed one spouse.  If you kill them before the heir is born, you have to find a way to bring them around to eventually become pregnant with the heir.  And then you have to find a way for them to be best friends with the heir during the toddlers stage.   The easiest way is to actually have them under your control and not just in ghost form.  Don't forget ambrosia is not restricted to anyone other than heirs currently working on their requirements.

Would it be allowed if I added him to the house as a ghost, even though I fed him jellybeans (without the intent of killing him)? I thought about ambrosia, but she's doing painting and writing for her skills. I may just have to restart (for the fifth time...).

That's your choice, they are your heirs.  Remember you have to choose an heir that is different from your founder so if you're founder is a witch and you have a human because he's a ghost then that human is your heir.   Ghosts can produce ghosts or humans and even though he was a werewolf before he died, he may not retain the ability to pass on those genetics.

Edit: Just be aware that the ressurect wish may not be granted because you're not feeding him ambrosia.   I have yet to have it work with the other forms of rezz.

Not too concerned with the ressurect wish, would rather take chances and try and get op with science lab to use that.My founder, Amethyst Joya (spanish for gem) is a fairy so I'd defiently get a supernatural child.

Ghosts always allow for human children.   Fairies are not guaranteed to have supernatural children.  I did extensive tests when Supernatural came out and if a ghost is in the mix, there is always a 33% chance of getting a plain human child.

Even with both fairies and ghosts? How bizzare! I wouldn't be too bothered with a human, I suppose.

The only way to not get a human child when you have a ghost is to have two ghosts have a baby.   It's strange but there ya go.

Perhaps it is because I used two ghosts who tried for a baby whilst using the ghost potion but I have had *faux ghost* parents have two human children and a ghost whilst having triplets.
The one thing I have learned in the Sims is to expect the unexpected.

I have just spoken to Metro and it has been agreed that instructing your Sim to eat jellybeans goes against this rule:
• You may only kill to create a ghost and this is crucial — it has to be freewill on your Sim’s part that kills them. You cannot directly instruct them to do an action resulting in their death. Here’s an example: you can set up a situation where there is a puddle of water near a broken electrical appliance, BUT you cannot tell the Sim to fix the appliance. They have to do it themselves.

So a Sim can choose to eat a jellybean but and this is a big but it has to be freewill on their part.

Do we have any information about whether vampires can now have offspring that are not vampires?  When they first came into the game, if one of the parents was a vampire, every child born to that couple would be a vampire.  Just wondering if this still happens for this Dynasty.

It all depends on what the other parent is.  I'm still getting 100% vampire from human & vampire couplings but all other life states it is about 50/50 like it is supposed to be.  I did some genetics testing when supernatural came out and posted some of the results on the general discussion board.

I currently have a female Genie, male vampire couple. Sapphire gave birth to four genie daughters (single births) before I had her watch kids tv and listen to kids music so she could have twins hoping for at least one of them to be vampire. I ended up with twin vampire nooboo's.

I have a had a human and vampire pairing have twin humans and one vampire offspring.My vampire fairy pairing had two fairies and a vampire.
To be honest though I have not done a whole lot of testing in this area.
