When school starts, it drags his/her kid in along with all the rest ('cos their kids have a token). I'm fine with it that way.
And that's the set up I'm looking for! I just needed to be sure. Thank you!

Does anyone else have any problems with Create-a-Sim showing the wrong thumbnails? I'll be creating a female adult, and it'll show thumbnails of male children. Shift+Click fixes the thumbnails temporarily but they keep getting messed up.

Yes, happens to me all the time. No idea what triggers it, or how to prevent it.

Thanks.

How close can an object be to a fireplace before it risks burning up?

Right next to it. Just... Don't put anything on the tiles surrounding the fireplace.

I create a lot of clothing, and start, shut, reload the game very often. This does not happen to me often, but when it does, deleting the CASThumbnails.package within the Thumbnails folder clears it up.
It will take more time to load your CAS images the next time you use it, especially if your game is packed with CAS cc's of all kind, but you'll be tranquil for a while.

Yes, but it doesn't prevent it from happening again. Sometimes the next time I open CAS!

I think Carrigon's forever burn fireplace suppresses the fires - I've had it forever and can't quite remember properly. I don't tend to have fires from fireplaces though (burnt pancakes, yes). Carrigon is putting her stuff back up but if you can't find it and want it, I can stick it up on SFS.

If you're talking about the thumbnails of sims in CAS, such as those made in body shop, and not the clothing/hair/etc in CAS, it's from deleting/removing those sims made in body shop. As far as I know, the only way to prevent it is not to move/delete sims out of saved sims/downloads.

The FT one has dance contests.

I never use the DJ booth that came with NL anymore. If you have FT, there just isn't any point in using the NL one.

Uhm I'm not really into Free Time competitions and lots (I've deactivated the creation of the Subhood for years now) and honestly the Custom Recolors I found were just for the NL one, but I'll take in account that the FT booth has extra functions for future references

You don't need the free time lots to hold dance contests, you can do that on your own lots, it makes a good item for an owned dance studio.

I don't use the FT hobby lots much either. I do use the DJ booths in nightclubs on ordinary community lots. When I first got FT, I replaced all the DJ booths in clubs that were already in the game with the FT booths.

My Fortune sim owns a business and has the want to earn 100 §. The want wasn't filled even if he was the cashier.
Is this normal behaviour ?

#9518 Old Yesterday at 12:59 PM
Normally, the only way most get that want to go away is to be in a job that has some kind of huge salary, and it's over the course of a lifetime.Owning a business won't do it, but selling it for a huge profit might..

Is the Sim the owner of the business? I believe business revenue is supposed to be credited to the owner, rather than any specific employee.

If the Sim doesn't live in the same house as the owner, they will gain a salary (and be credited towards finance goals) by attending work when they are a playable.

If your Sim is neither the owner nor living in a different household to the owner, I don't know how to fix the problem. Sims 2 seems to think that fellow household members are free labour for some reason.

Yes, he's the owner.
I thought that money related wants of business owners could be filled. It seems I was wrong.

Huh, that's odd. My Sims' "earn $whatever" were fulfilled by owned businesses. Maybe I'm using a hack that affects it.

Another question: If a Sim is running a business, and they hire another playable, do the wages they pay go to the other household's family funds? Or does the employee only receive money when playing their household?

It's been awhile since I had an employee/employer relationship in my game. As I recall ...
The money paid by the employer vanished into thin air.
Thankfully for the employee, they get a regular check every day (when you play them) that is usually quite a bit more than they'd get from their cheapskate employer -- at least that's how it works in my game.

I can't be trusted on this subject because I can't remember numbers or do simple arithmetic, but teen River Land, getting grossly overpaid by Junior Mann to work part time at the General Store, got an "earned $10K" memory, which would hardly have been the case in the time frame available unless he was getting the money paid to him when sims visited the General Store in addition to the money he got when he went to work in the evenings. Even if the "earn" memories are based on money earned by the household, his parents have never rolled any skill wants and therefore have never gotten promotions in their low-level full-time jobs, and none of the other children have done anything to earn money at all. And it always seemed to me, during this period, that the Lands would be a lot richer than I'd left them, every time I entered the lot.

There seems to be no reason for money not to accrue to them in the same way that they build badges at this time - River has gold Sales and Cashier badges, and a Silver in restocking, even though I seldom had Junior call him in when I was playing the business, unless he got overwhelmed running it by himself. Similarly, the only other teen I've had work for a prolonged period in an owned business, got badges in Styling, Cashiering, and Sales, even though her employer's family was big enough that she was never called in to work when the business was active; and she not only had lots of "earned" memories, she was constantly platinum from badge and money acquisition wants getting filled between rotations.
