Grrrr!  That means my mods are probably outdated.   >:(  Guess I'm going to wait.
Good thing with Twallan though, he is really fast on updating all his mods! Assuming all of yours are his. :)

Please anyone who can test it let us know if it fixed this problem!!

Unfortunately, that won't be me.  I won't patch until I know my mods are compatible with it or compatible mods are released in a day or two.   :(

I forgot to remove the patterns from my singer last night before I sent her on tour. Now I feel bad. I was just so excited that she got to go. I also forgot to take screen caps of the awesome performance Katluvr's sim put on.

I am a horrible host and tourer!

I hope it was changed with this new patch but I haven't had a chance to play and wont be able to until tonight.

I can't knock the way people play, but some of that high quality hair just looks absolutely ridiculous.

@ Trentorio   

Nothing is actually installed to the hosts game, so if anything did come over with your sim it is easily removed when the host deletes your traveling sim from their game file.  Hopefully the newest patch will take care of this, but it seems to be more of a nuisance issue than a real security issue.

Your sim put on a great show at my coffeehouse!  I have a screenie to send you when I get a chance later.

Yes, I use his exclusively because he makes everything I want for my game.  He seems to already be in the process of doing that.  Although, his progress seems to be rather fast (even for him lol), so I'm guessing that either there wasn't much to upgrade or the patch didn't affect the compatibility of most of them.  ;)

I don't have it yet so hopefully it will be fixed before I get it, but talking about CC, this is 3rd party CC right? I have alot of store items which are CC I think but it was made by EA. Even though to be on the safe side before I send them somewhere I would take them to the mirror and dresser and change them into something not from the store. Would that work?

Nobody has really said specifically one way or the other to my knowledge, but 3rd party CC is the big concern (I can't really see someone being mad because they got an item for free that you normally have to pay for :P ).  However, this is allegedly fixed.  I haven't tested it yet because I just finished writing the Singer article for the guide.  I'll be looking to give SimPort a test run tomorrow.

But no more singers for a bit.  I still have "Oogie Fever" playing on constant repeat in my head.   :o

Has anybody tried out simport since this patch? I've never used simport. Did the patch work?

According to a ton of members from the Sims 3 Forum, the patch caused lagging and such with not only SimPort, but the overall game. I'm scared to update.  }=

I had no problems with the patch, it updated quickly. I'm just scared to use Simport. :/

Before the 1.32 patch, both the Sims I hosted showed up in downloads as custom content. Since patching up, I've hosted a couple of Sims, who didn't show up in downloads at all, although they did appear in my game. So my guess is that they fixed that issue.

I'm not experiencing any more trouble with game lag now than I was before the patch.  The game was laggy to begin with.

But, yes:  it's fixed.  The hosted Sim isn't even saved in you CAS bin anymore.

I am curious once my simport is working again if a copy of my touring sim is saved to my uploads again. I had a copy of my Singer waiting for upload for each time she went on tour.

..But what if I found the singer I put on Sim tour in my exports on the launcher? I didn't put her up for the Exchange.

Just because something is in the exports section of the launcher, doesn't mean it has been uploaded to the exchange. You control whether or not that happens.

Yes, but you did export her for SimPort.

i haven't installed Showtime yet and was leary of sending my sim since so many people hate CC. I love the CC outfits and have had no problem with them. So, you're saying the hosted sim doesn't stay in the game. How do they look if their CC hair and clothes aren't allowed. Curious. Otherwise, I will host others and not upload (don't want people here mad at me).

So far my experiences with SimPort both before and after patch 1.32 have been positive.  Nothing has transferred over into my game, all of the sims I have seen so far have been wearing their work costume.  I would be happy to host your performers - CC is not an issue anymore as far as I'm concerned - sending a friend request now.

When a Sim appears in your game from another person's game, it defaults to the standard work uniform.  Since this cannot be altered at all (not even the makeup or hairstyle), there's no custom content to transfer.

I'd be curious to see how she would look without her custom content. Still haven't installed Showtime yet, as people are talking about Blue screens, etc. Kind of nervous putting it in since my game presently runs wonderfully.

They do show up with things like glasses and earrings though, don't they? I don't know if all accessories transfer but I'm assuming the glasses worn by my visiting acrobat aren't part of the normal male uniform as he's the only one I've seen. So theoretically it would be possible to have custom content transfer for those things unless it's checked for. I haven't tested it, I just made sure all my performing sims are free of anything like that.
