Look at your life, and look at Sims. You can become immortal! Grow cheese! Fish for a gnome! I can't see any of that happening in my life.

Don't forget the ghosts, the mummies, the simbots, the vampires, the imaginary friends, and the unicorns.

If you had the insane trait, then you could do that ! (or at least believe you could)

Here's something annoying and new: Yesterday I started up the game and discovered an update.  For me, updating my game usually involves more benefits than costs, so I went ahead and did it.  Not surprisingly, it popped everyone in my 4X4 challenge out of the actions they were performing, but that's no big deal.  There's just four of them, I just asked them all to get started again.  Then I asked Min to go downstairs and jump on the trampoline.

"Whaaaaa?!  Something is in my way!  I can't jump on the trampoline!"

Um, okay.  Well, let's try again.  Jump on the trampoline.

"Whaaaa?!  Something is really in my way!"

Crud.  I knew I shouldn't have updated in the middle of a challenge.  Umm, okay, let's try moving the trampoline.

"Whaaaaa?!"

So that's not it.  Let's replace the stairs.  Trampoline?

"In my way!!!"

Okay, so I'll have to ditch the spiral staircase.  Darn it, I love those spirals.  Let me relocate a door and a bar and half of two entire rooms and I'll put in regular stairs.  Crud, they don't fit.  So it can't be that, then.  I wonder . . .

"Trampoline!  I love jumping on the trampoline!"

Do you know what it was?  On the wall beside the place where the stairs were, there were hung two high school diplomas.  Before the game update, all the sims had used the stairs without a problem, but afterwards, they couldn't.  Min couldn't use the stairs because there were pictures on the wall.  Not even adjacent to the stairs, but physically above them.  Absolutely absurd!

Min doesn't want to get hit by one of those things! They are sharp! One blow from those and your challenge is over. You should be thankful.

 :D  I'll be thankful when she can walk up the walls to route places.  Until then, I remain annoyed.

I don't know why, but just reading those words made me hear the Old Spice guy's voice in my head saying it.

"Look at your life, now look at your Sims.  Now look at your life.  Sims is your life.  Control the world, control life.  I am on a horse."

Lol, when I get Pets, I am so going to try and make the Old Spice guy now, and put him on a horse.

I just found out that if the adults go on vacation the Fireproof Homestead LTR is no longer in effect. They have been gone all of 8 hours and I've had 3 fires already.

If the parent has the LTR, then maybe that has something to do with it. Like if a Sim with the No Bills LTR dies, the family receives bills once more.

Guess the teens were having a blast! All I got from leaving my teens alone was a broken window and very angry neighbors! (high rise apartment).

Easy, throw a big rock at it. Oh wait, did you mean in the sims?  Nevermind then.

I've found a new annoyance:  Sims who keep putting away the puppy's chew toy. Oh, so you want the furniture destroyed?

Don't forget the ghosts, the mummies, the simbots, the vampires, the imaginary friends, and the unicorns.

Which reminds me of something else:  that lovely reaction to ghosts and simbots.  You know the one...

"Oh my god, a simbot/ghost...that one that I built or have been otherwise associated with my entire life, but I still feel compelled to drop an entire cue of actions to react to."

A funny bit of trivia:  when a simbot dies, you get a tombstone like everyone else.  If you place the tombstone on the family lot and the ghost of the simbot comes out, people in the house will drop what they are doing to react, not once, but twice.  Back to back.  "Oh my god, a simbot...oh my god, a ghost, too!"  Sigh...

That problem can easily fixed. All you need to do next time is make sure the Sim has the Brave, Insane, and Childish trait! ;D

What really annoys me I realize more and more every time I play is the friendship drama.
"What you are not my friend anymore because of no contact? Come on we are living in the same house and you are standing two meters from me playing with my toddler"
"Sim X are no longer friend with your Sim Y because they never call or hang out, come on Y is still a toddler what to you expect her to do?"
"Z is longer friends with your Sim W because of they never call or hang out, sure fine but it's their parent! Doesn't that mean anything?"

Gah! I am already sick of my sims filling the pet-food bowl that already has food! And why did they have to cancel their other action to do it!

It didn't help that one of them had that hidden pyro trait...

I just can't believe this, but why am I not surprised?


Several pages back I posted how annoying the Sim/sprinkler issue is to me. I started a garden in AP to see if there were new plants (I've grown carrots so far).

I have two dogs in the house. Guess what? They spend almost as much time in the sprinklers as my Sim.

Maybe you should make all your sims hydrophobic? Another thing you can do is upgrade it so that it only comes on early in the morning for an hour to water the plants.

When I do that they use their free will to do the "play with sprinkler" action and pick one to turn on.  I've tried.

After some reasearch on Sims wiki, I am rather annoyed at a trait conflict in Pets already. All the human traits relating to animals conflict with each other.  ::)

Really? I can't be an overall animal lover, and a cat person?

That annoyed me too. I wanted to have the benefits from both.
