Also I remember when I played before I had more than 1 lonely buffet table and a lot of them were custom, but aren't there a few more?

I have tons more stupid questions but I feel I should ration them.


I think you mean something I asked on MTS myself a while ago about lots, look at the last comment in this thread. See if that is helpful : https://modthesims.info/m/showthread.php?t=632842

My question is does jealousy LTR still work? I was looking on the wiki here: https://sims.fandom.com/wiki/Lifetime_reward for the No Jealousy LTW, and a note with that reward is this: "(Note: this has lost its functionality since Generations)".
So does that mean that it does not work at all? Is there something else I can use to stop my sims from being jealous when my sim is a flirty bum? Or does that reward still work a little?

Hello, Lucy! This is the thread that I found very educational about community lot-behavior: https://modthesims.info/showthread....5#startcomments
(Contrary to its title, it's not only about LN bars, but all types of community lots; about traits that they attract, rabbithole + lot zone combo ideas, etc.)

Thank you, Floraflora2 & the others too. I've read all the threads now & I've hopefully downloaded something that will let me read spreadsheet files (this is a new-old frankensteined windows 10 machine with bits purchased from the local university's surplus warehouse, so it's strong & capable but came with no software except a windows 10 that has a fat watermark demanding reauthorization, which I will in fact do after the first of the month).

I don't know about the LTR being broken, but you can use NRaas Wohooer for sure to set the Jealousy Level:

Technicaly it does still work as intended, ie if sim A walks in on their partner having relations with sims C they won't react right then. However it sort of gets bypassed by the reputation system. So if (when) rumers about sim B and C start to spead and sim Bs reputation is affected then Sim A will get angry about being cheated on.
So in order to be completely covered you would need to purchase both no jealasy and Above reproach LTWs.

Where is the game's registry entry for both, origin and steam, directories can be found?

Also, is there a way to trigger imaginary friend doll appearing with MasterControl?

P.S. Sorry for my bad english.

I assume that this is a "stupid question" since I do not know everything about the mods and how they works in game. But let me tell you a short story...

...Today I did return to TS3 after a Very long time. I jumped back into Sunset Valley and my family of three female (two adults and one young adult). I did send the YA to the university but before we go on I will point this out: I have been playing in the Uni world before but back then I did not have any NRaas mods installed. But I do have a few now. So my sim did arrive at the uni and a warning message popped out:
Nraas Overwatch
Script Error
NRaas OverwatchSpace.Loadup.
Cleanup Relationships

Oh...OK?!? What...? Is this a normal thing or did anything go wrong? I did not backup my game after saving so I could replace my game folder if I must. I do not know how close the sim and her "extra" mother is but in the relations bar they were quite far off, only knowing each other briefly. So, is this OK? If so, I peace whit it. If not, I will need help...

You should take this script error and upload it to the forum at Nraas: https://www.nraas.net/community/errortrap-discussion

It's really the best place to discuss it! I've had tremendous help doing it that way--but nobody here has the expertise to interpret your script error.


To keep from double posting, have an edit: 2 more stupid questions about the catalog:

for Showtime users, where in the catalog do you find the mechanical bull?

for Store content users, where in the catalog do you find the Milkin' It Dairy Corral?

Mechanic bull should be under electronics>misc sort by item, if not indoor activties (basically where excercise equipment found).

Don't have Mikin'i it, but I would assume try outdoor activities (rugby ball icon)? Or grill.

P.S. Sorry for my bad english.

I know you meant it well, but I did not ask "hey, people who don't use these things, whereabouts do you think they maybe might be found?" I asked people who actually have used these things to tell me where in the catalog they actually found these things. Because I have spent two or three hours a day for the last week and a half looking for them, and I can't find them. I have gone so far as to uninstall and reinstall the cowshed so many times I have lost count, and still nada. I have been having a lot of difficulty getting the store items to install on my new computer, and the cowshed is the last one that I can't find anywhere. I'm hoping if someone can tell me where they see these things-not just the category, but what items are near them, I might see something I missed before.

Edit, addressed to everybody: I have in fact looked in all the functional and decorative categories multiple times, and still not found these items. So anybody thinking of telling me "It might be in thus and such category," please don't. The actual only helpful advice is on the order of "In my game I see it next to this particular item."

Seriously, I have been through all these categories over and over, and also, thanks to igazor, I know about filtering by pack or store, and I have done this, and still-no. I know Showtime is installed: everything else from the pack that I know to look for is there. I checked to see if the bull was special content like a pre-order gift (no). I've checked every way I know that the cowshed is properly installed, and the Launcher certainly thinks so. And again,it seems to be the only store content I can't find. I know I own it, and I've played with it on other computers.


I don't mean to be ungrateful or cranky, but you see my situation.
Another edit! In case anybody else is having this problem or is as obsessed with making a butter and egg ranch home business as me:

I found the cowshed, light of my life in outdoor activities>filter by store> between the rock climber & the hot air balloon (close to the end). Still have not found the mechanical bull, alas.

Some functional store items can be found at Entertainment> Misc, Decor> Sculptures or even Decor> Misc. It's ridiculous >/

Overwatch detecting duplicate sims in a foreign world and attempting to resolve that is normal. The script error might or might not be, we would need to see the script log (at NRaas, not here) as said to help determine that.

The mechanical bull, for me, is under Entertainment > Sporting Goods. It's not difficult to find there because at §9,500 it's the most expensive item and therefore appears at the end of the catalog list whether it's filtered or not. The actual name of the item is "Buck & Chuck Bronco." On the By Room view I can also see it under Study > Hobbies & Skills again pretty close to the end of the list because of how expensive it is. Is this not the object you are looking for?

The Dairy Corral is under Outdoors > Outdoor Activities and is §2,300. For me its neighbors (unfiltered) are a trampoline to the left and a strangely categorized television, followed by the snowboard course from Seasons to the right. Filtering to store content wouldn't be as relevant since we might have different sets installed. I can also find it under Decor > Sculptures. (Edit: oops sorry, you already found that one)

Thanks again, igazor. I'll look for the bull tomorrow, when I undertake the Adventure Park and the Casino/Fancy House lots. But I finally got my Butter and Egg Ranch built, and that makes me really happy. (I have not moved any sims into these home business lots, I have no idea whether it will actually work for me to play them in a loose and sloppy rotation or not, or whether my active sims will be able to be customersat them, I wuill find out).

#9216 Old Yesterday at 9:19 AM
You do know you can see the location in the catalogue for store items at the store? It says the corral can be found by location - Room>Outdoors>Outdoor Activity or by function Function>Decor>Sculptures. As you didn't explain your situation properly in your first post your second post is a bit rude. We can't read your mind and do not know what you have already been looking through. I am pretty sure it is located closer to the end of the outdoor activities as it is higher in price and the catalogue sorts it by price, as I can not use my game right now I can't tell you exactly where.

OK, I understand. My TS3 game is on an other computer and I will not set it up now. But I will check by the end of next week if I could track down the error log.
