I love the rabbit plant! and nice engagement shot :) I had a ghost baby once - the only thing I found cool about him was he could walk through walls - caring normal toddlers too! it saved a lot of time

and cute fairies - I might get them if I had the points. I used up all my free points (i love getting miscelanious decorations like those gorgeous kid bears) and because I'm from Australia I can't buy more. A bit silly of EA in my opinion - they have a market in countries other than america.
...unless I can buy but haven't worked out how? please let me know if this is the case. lol

Great pictures Pam, really funny! :D
And...  she's much thinner then she was in life.  She wasn't chubby by any means, but she was healthy looking.  Now she's as thin as a Sim can get, I think.
I often play with starvation ghosts, and do you know what? I actually think that these ghosts are the level thinner than a sim can be created with in CAS. I have had some families that were as thin as living sims get and when one died of starvation I could've sworn that she was thinner!

However, this is hard to prove since it's just how I interpret their appearance, but it wouldn't surprise me if EA really did put in this as a feature. It would be kinda logical if starvation ghosts was skinnier than living sims are; they must have died of something in the first place!

I know how to test that! Make a Sim - Copy another one, kill one with testingcheats by dragging Hunger down, but keep the hunger levels up for the other sim so they don't put on weight, wait for the opportunity, revive them, then take pictures of them side ways on.  Seems simple to me but I am probably babbling!  ;D

I haven't tried Samoth's idea yet, but I have one question. Sunset Valley looks like a normal neighbourhood; it doesn't look poor at all. But why do so many people die of starvation. That ghost didn't look poor, so why couldn't she afford to buy food? And if every house has a fridge with food in it, why didn't she just go to the fridge and make some salad?

I suppose it is just part of the game.  It gives sort of an air of mystery.  Just like some neighborhoods I have, they progress in their jobs and reach lifetime wishes without me, while other neighborhood families just stand around and don't progress at all.  Which reminds me of something weird that happened.  I had a sim that reached astronaut while I was playing another household and that was his lifetime wish, but he did not get his points, which goes to show that I guess that is part of the game, that was a bummer though, so I try to pay more attention.  I have not played too many ghosts, guess I will have to try that.

Just thought I would share an image with you all, here is a pic of where my first generation legacy Sim would sit to eat and read when he very first started out.  :P





Enjoy  :)

[EDIT: Hey, Lisa, I threw your picture in this thread since it basically serves the same function. Hooray for toilets!ŚMM]

I remember in sims2, they would pull out a newspaper and read it while on the toilet, but I guess when you gotta sit, ya gotta sit.

I have heard that the Story Proggression will kill off sims if there are too many in the Area, thats why some move out, something about the game running better...

Samoht is right. I am one of those weird people who read what ever patch entitles, but anyways, on one of the more recent patches it says that Sims you have once played within your neighborhood will not be affected by the regular story progression of Sims moving away or Dying. I thought that was a good idea, but it also it pretty much recommends afterwords to not try to affect too many houses otherwise the game won't run smoothly because it can't kill of regular Sims/move them away.

hmmmm yes my sims sat on toilet to eat when there were no chairs they wanted to sit on. kinda annoying when another sim wanted to have a shower but they didn't want to undress in front of the sim eating their breakfast on the toilet. lol

I don't know if this is just my imagination, but it seems like if the neighborhood is overcrowded that townies will age up faster than the ones you're currently playing.  In one of my Legacies there was a teen who my teen was friends with, I was hoping that they might become more than "just friends" as adults.  Well, the other teen aged from young adult, to adult, to elder before my teen was even a young adult.  Maybe I'm totally wrong and I was just mistaken, but it sure seems like this happens sometimes.  I'll have a young adult sim looking for another young adult to be a potential spouse, and before I know it they've become adults and then elders before I can make up my mind about them.

That is exactly the reason I keep aging off! I hate it when that happens!

Wow, really? I've never had a Sim do that before, maybe once but it was only one age level up faster than I thought she would... not all of them... That is so strange.

I had Gunther Goth live for about three generations once.  He was elderly and just didn't die.  It was very strange.  I've seen the premature aging once or twice, but not often.  I don't think it would be related to the town being overcrowded.  I doubt it's even possible for that to happen because there are only so many houses available and a certain amount of them are always empty if you want to move.  I think the game would keep itself balanced out by just having families leave town, just like new families come to town to populate it.

I had a sim, Jon Lesson keep on going too.  I think he was like 250 days over his day to go.  I finally had to age him up and let grimmy come and get him.  I do not like doing that, but good grief, when it is time to go, it is time to go.

I did have something else weird happen.  My little sim was playing guitar for tips in front of theatre and she stopped because someone was having a baby.  It was a friend of hers, so she took her to the hospital, or I  should say, walked her to the hospital, anyway, she went in the hospital with her and the friend came out with baby in her arms and the sim that took her got the new baby moodlet.  They were not in the same household or anything, but I guess since she took her and witnessed it, it must have given her the moodlet.

I've had the baby moodlet thing happen a couple of times.  Most recently, I had a Sim visiting my house go into labor and I deliberately had one of my family members take her to the hospital so she would get that moodlet.

A little update on my starved ghost...  I had planned for her to marry the heir and maybe produce ghost babies.  However, the constant ghost sounds, having no voice, and always scaring people got very annoying.  Instead of bringing her all the way back with Ambrosia, I just aged her up a couple of times.  Oh, what a bad idea!  After elderly, I aged her up one more time and, of course, she didn't die because she was already dead.  Grim didn't come.  She just returned to the netherworld and went back to her grave.  Ok, that's all fine and dandy except that her fiance is still engaged to her and cannot marry anyone else!  They didn't break up and she didn't die, so they are still engaged.  Argh!!  My plan at the moment is to see if her ghost will come out and haunt the house, in which case I'll try to get him to break up with her.  If that doesn't work, I'll just have to let him move a lady friend into the house and change the baby's name after it's born.  I can't believe I was so stupid!  ;D

Keep us posted with what happens Pam, I am curious how it will play out. I know what you mean at that moment when you thump your forehead and say, "Noooo, Now why did you do that? That was just plain stupid!".  lol, Oh well...

Bad luck Pam! After they've returned to the netherworld it can take a while until they appear again to haunt.

Regarding that uncontrolled-sims-never-die conversation: In my oldest save Pauline Wan stayed a young adult indefinitely. Normally, around 5-6 generations had passed outside my household (the ones on ambrosia), but Pauline was still alive! Just for fun, without saving, I added her to my household and saw that she had probably aged 3 days into young adult when Hank Goddard had been dead for ages! I concluded for myself that it was a glitch, but if other people here also experiences problems with uncontrolled sims aging, then it's maybe more like a bug in programming.
