Lost... My Precious Axe
« on: January 10, 2010, 02:33:33 PM »
Hey all. So I was playing in Egypt and found a small rubble of stone. Nothing there. So I got my Sim to start digging it out to view the loot under it. But then I noticed he took the old "slow" axe out and started digging hard and slowly. And after looking in my Sim's inventory, I have somehow lost my Pangu's Axe.  >:( ??? :'(

I have no idea when this has happened or how. Now I have checked my house, my other Sims (his wife), everywhere. I know for sure that it's only my main Sim who always had the axe, and I must have sold it or something by accident.

I have searched the China place again but there's no "new" axe on the wall in the tomb. So without this axe, there's just something you can't complete because of the big boulders you need to smash only with the axe.

So, any others lost theirs or have some answer that could help?

Well, if you did sell it by accident ....

I know for sure that its only my main sim who always have had the axe, and i must have sold it or something by accident.

...then there's not much you can do about that.

There occurs some bad glitches now and then, but the thing you could do is to hit control-shift-c and type in "testingcheatsenabled true". Repeat control-shift-c and type in "buyDebug on". Now there's a new category in buy mode (sort by function) and in one of the subcategories you'll find the Pangu's axe to buy.

Type in "testingcheatsenabled false" and "buyDebug off", respectively, to cancel the cheats after you've bought that. It's technically a cheat, but there is absolutely no disgrace to cheat to reverse an unfair glitch! ;)

It vanished!? ???
Well, then it must be some continuing glitch that erases all Pangu's axes, because that cheat should've done the trick.
Sorry, but if that doesn't work, then I'm personally out of ideas...

I have to think this over, but I can't promise I can figure something out...

But the one you tried to get through that cheat also disappeared (if I understand everything correctly), so, I'm not a computer expert but, it could be a bug that makes you unable to get/have a Pangu's axe. :-\

I found this thread on the official forum when looking for information on your problem. That you should look in the family inventory came up, but also the issue of it disappearing when you try to cheat. While nothing came up to fix the bug that causes the axe to vanish immediately upon entering live mode, it was suggested to delete boulders using cheats by shift-clicking them with testingcheats enabled. You'll be missing the effect of smashing the boulder but since your axe has vanished and seems irrecoverable this might be your only option for getting past them with that saved game.

Hmm. Can't somehow see the thread you link to. It just tells me I don't have the right to view the tread.

But yes, your second idea would of course be possible, but a bit boring. But if i get to those boulders, I guess that must be the way to "smash" them. :-)

Yeah cuz I am unaware of any debug cheats that relate to resetting adventures and things like that. This must be something they need to fix in the next patch, since you're not alone.

And being not alone, I just stumbled upon a lot of new forums with people talking about how they lost it, too.

But then, I found this: how to guide

But, of course it is still not showing on the wall. :-( Do I need to do something with the pc that the guide doesn't talk about to somehow link it etc.?

You're asking a question here about something on another site.  If we don't write it, we can't answer questions about it.  I'd suggest you ask the question on the site hosting the how to guide.

Unfortunately, I've tried the cheat to get the axe as well, (wanted to have two of them in my family...one for each sim) but it doesn't work. It does disappear every time you try to buy it and then go back into live mode. I'm not sure why other than it's just a special item that you can ONLY get by doing the adventure. I even created my own tomb once and tried to put the axe in there and it won't work that way either.

If this special axe is something you just hang on your wall where anyone in the house would then have access to, there's no need to have multiple axes. I've never done the quest to get the axe, but am I right? You just hang it on a wall and then the entire house can put it in their individual Inventories to use it?

I imagine that's correct, Metro.  The Axe can be moved to the inventory of any family member.  The hard part would be to remember to put it in the traveling Sim's inventory before leaving home.  However, the initial problem is that someone lost the Axe somehow and the cheat isn't letting it be purchased.  Or something.

Yeah Metro, there can only be ONE axe per family. So if your whole family goes on vacation, and two sims are doing adventures, it's kinda difficult to keep changing it from one to the other's inventory. It would be nice if you could just have two of them. I had a situation not long ago where I had two sims adventuring and the guy didn't have the axe and so he couldn't complete his adventure until he got back to base camp and get the axe from his wife.

You could try to reset your foreign countries. That way, you would have to do all tombs again, but the boulder adventure should come up again in China, and the axe would be back in its cave. I am afraid I do not have the link right now where I saw the explanation how to reset the countries, but i have seen it on different forums, so it should not be hard to find with google.

Why couldn't you just drag the axe from the wife's inventory over to the husband picture on the left of the screen?

To IK. I have tried to delete the China files in my save folder and the tomb was then "not explored" but then I could not complete the tomb because i needed the special keys along the way to unlock the doors. Anyway with a little editing I finally came to the place where the axe should hang. But then yet again it was not there... go into buy mode and it hangs there.  ::)

So its a mouse and cat run about this axe i feel.

PS: but maybe i should delete the files again and see if the adventure for the axe comes up??

I don't know....never tried that. Is that how you transfer something from one inventory to another? I always pull it out of one inventory and lay it on the ground and then drag it to the other inventory.

Ah!  Yes, that's how I did it at first, too.  But you can just drag the item from one inventory over to the left side of the screen and drop it on the picture of the Sim who needs it.  It will transfer to the new inventory just like that!

Ok, I can confirm that at least that buy cheat worked for me early (before I ever went on a vacation) to get the Pangu's axe. When I had just gotten WA I played around with all the cheats to see what it had in store for me, at least then I was fully able to cheat me a Pangu's axe.

Haven't tried that since I got my Pangu's axe the honest way, so maybe you just can't have two of them and that's why it's not working? Maybe I still can cheat to get it, I''ll try when I get the time.
