Is there a way to make movement on various lots, such as houses, easier or less time consuming? It shouldn't take my sim an hour to come down for breakfast starting from when he gets out of bed.
In some of the larger, more complex lots I have built for story telling I've found that using ladders speeds things up considerably. They are easier to place than stairs, take up less space, and are certainly a quicker way of getting from one floor to another. One of my castles has four storeys above ground and four dungeon levels below. Three of the towers have ladders going from the topmost level right down to the lowest. I click where I want my sim to go, he heads for the nearest ladder and... zip, he's down in an instant.
Is there any way to age up Sims with aging off without having to remember to enable testing cheats all the time?
I keep aging off on a per town basis with NRaas. I just like playing a family as long as I want without having to worry about an actual age counter. However, I can't seem to be able to age them up with the birthday cake when I'm ready to. It always says "No one on your lot is able to age up" or something similar. Is it blocked from functioning if aging is turned off?
