No Strays or Neighbourhood Pet Adoption *Solved*
« on: May 25, 2016, 07:06:21 PM »
I'm sorry if this exact topic has already been discussed but I cannot find a fix anywhere. So for a few months now I've had no way of adopting pets in the neighbourhood. There is no neighbourhood pet adoption in map view either. I've had no strays, unicorns or anything lately either. I have gotten rid of all Custom Content, uninstalled and reinstalled Pets EP and checked the paper every day. I try adopting from the shelter but they only have maybe two or three animals available.




*Solved*

This issue was caused by a mod conflict.

I usually don't play with strays on or have pets in my households, But the pet adoption place pops up after awhile some where in the neighborhood.

Something you can try is to Reset the town.

Unfortunately resetting the town hasn't helped...

I don't play with the pets expansion any more, but as I have later expansions are installed, I notice there's a checkbox for animals on the screen where you can choose which life states you want to allow in your game, and whether or not you want celebrities and your family to become celebrities.

A silly question, perhaps but you've enabled pets/strays in that screen, haven't you?

ETA: Did you start the game before or after you had pets? If it was before, that may have something to do with the problems you are experiencing.

No, not a silly question at all 😊 I have all the check boxes ticked and started this particular game after I reinstalled Pets (I uninstalled and reinstalled it to see if that would fix my problem)

Hmm... This is making me curious as to what's happening with your game. If you're willing to give me a little while to play-test a little I'll see what I can find?

I can take my current household into a fresh new game to see if/when I get the pet adoption center. Even though I don't play with strays or pets checkmarked in the options I still get the pet adoption center after awhile.

How long game-days wise that will take I don't know. But I'll do the play-test and let you know how it goes. This may take a day or two real-time.

Do you have scripting mods ? MasterController ? Overwatch ?

@Rissa

A little update, nothing much to report really, but that I'm getting the same results so far. No adoption center and only a couple each of cats, dogs and horses that can be chosen from.

However, my family has only been in Sunset Valley a couple-few days. So this may change with more gameplay.

Silly me, canceled the newspaper like always. *Blush* So I can't check that at the moment. But will renew it when I get back in-game tomorrow.

I did turn off stray animals via Nraas Register. But I don't think that affects the adoption center from appearing later in the game.

As in one of my current games, it has an adoption center. But I've been playing that game for a couple real-time months.

 I know you mentioned taking out custom content, and I'm sorry if this is a repeated question, but did you take out your mods and wait a few sim days to see if that influenced the number of pets? I'm just trying to wrap my head around the problem and I'm seeing if it is possible the mods could be causing an issue.  :)

@Rissa

I resumed getting the newspaper. It looks like the same pets you find via the newspaper can be found by phone.

The neighborhood adoption became available a few days after starting the game. So that leads me to believe your game maybe glitched some how.

You may want to try a new test-game yourself to see what you can find. If after a few in-game days your new test-game shows a neighborhood adoption. Then you know there's something wrong with the original game.

I'm not entirely sure how to fix that. When I get game glitches like that I usually take my family and their house into a new game and just on from there.

At least one of the NRaas mods (sorry, can't remember which) has an option to disable strays. Might be worth checking your mod settings.

Hey guys thanks so much for the help and advice. I'll try turning my mods off and starting a new game to see if that helps. How do I turn mods off?

If you want to try the game without the mods, best thing to do is move your mods folder to your desktop for temporary.

I couldn't live without some of the mods I use. MasterController, Register, Overwatch, Traffic are some of my must-have mods.

If you're anything like me. Try a new test-game first, with mods to see how that works out. If it's still acting odd, then move the mods folder to see if that helps.

Yes I also use woohooer and story profression. I've had a few new games with the same problem as this one. So I'll start a new test game without the mods.
Fingers crossed it works 😀

Thanl you all so much for the help and advice  :D

I'm going to move the mods back but only the important ones. I have a hunch it might be story progression. But hopefully not.

Let us know how that works? I've had problems with SP so I don't use it anymore.

Ok, tried to play my game to see what mod is messing up but the game wouldn't load at all. Took my mods out of the folder and now my game is ok again.

I've had that happen. It's been a long while since that has happened. But what helped is to put the mods in back one by one to see which one is making it not work. Or have you tried that already?

If so, and they are all or mostly Nraas mods, you can ask them how to solve that problem.

As when I went through the mods I'm using I had to end up picking and choosing which ones I really wanted to use and that wouldn't cause a lot of problems with my game. SP and Error Trap were two of them I had to delete as they weren't working correctly and/or making my game lag.

I've got it to start working again. Ended up deleting all mods but re downloading them one at a time to see what one is messing up. So far Master Controller, Error Trap and Overwatch are ok.
I'm on my first sim night so hopefully in the morning my sim will check the paper and it'll all work ok 😊
