I meant Gangam style. They didn't add the music in the game right? Whew.

Has anyone tried Ani's apartment mod? I figured I'd ask about it here before I get my hopes up and download it

Okay...it's silly question,but how to take sim-self photo with other sim using smartphone?(I don't find this option in smartphone)

I think you need a certain level of Jock influence to do that. It's not the question that's silly, it's the answer.

I don't know what it is, but all these little interactions and items that has been added in Uni seems to improve the game a lot.
Imagine if they included minor stuff like this in every expansion instead of throwing one major new thing in there, like performing etc.

TS3 aliens? Finally! Now give us OFB and proper apartments, damnit! - EA, you are breaking my heart. - I give up.

Performing could have been a minor addition as well. We didn't need an expansion pack that focused on being a celebrity because we already had one, though I did like what they added to the pack. Even without the performance stage object, the stages themselves are great for the bands and look nice in general.

The Salt Lake Team adds in a lot of minor additions to the game, surprisingly. Showtime features a lot of stuff that had NOTHING to do with performing. Supernatural did. University Life Did.

I don't think Showtime added minor interactions, just a lot of minor objects to flesh out the game world. Jukebox, pool table, golf, arcade tables, MP3 player, Meditation machine, etc. Lots of little cute things.

I have grown to hate the social groups, it messes up how I like yo play my Sims. Why do my couch potatoes must be a part of the jocks group so they can take a romantic pic on the smartphone? Ugh!

The threshold to become a part of them should be higher.
Or it could have been so that when you reach the first "level" or whatever, you get an invitation to join the social group by a leader or some sort.

I agree Lewisb40, I've come to feel the same way. The thing that makes it so problematic for me is the amount of time needed to maintain the standing in each group. Has anyone modded that yet? I may look into it, if not. Well, if it's possible, that is.

EDIT I do see a tunable that appears to disable influence skill decay, if anyone wants to be a guinea pig.

Really wish it was possible to have the picture functions without the social groups influences. I know the influences are needed for the jobs, but I hate it so much. I don't want my flirty, man whore to be a nerd because he played a few computer or video games. Probably enjoyed a few raunchy, mature, comic books. (That's my story, I am sticking to it) The man whore is a musician but gets enough nerd influence to get offered a technology job. Sad thing is he will wish to have the damn job. If I want to play a nerd, then I would create one. Thank you very much.

The other problem I have with the social groups outside of Uni world is, there are no social groups. No world offers sims with any of the social group "scores" for your sim to even socialize with. Yes, you could go through with something like MC and assign groups individually, but that's tedious. It's almost as though, in order to unlock those social "skills' like taking a photo together, EA wanted you to just use the LTR's that are the lowest cost rewards they have, and just give the group memberships to your sims without all the trouble of actually having a social structure outside of Uni world.

Someone on the development team must have had a sense of humor about it, though. I had my sim, who is a level 10 rebel, level 10 nerd, and level 7 jock, ask her romantic interest to call someone about them. The friendly interaction is worded something like "drop someone's name to impress them....". Normally, the sim places a phone call to that third sim, and acts like that sim they're calling is vouching for what a good sim your sim is. This time, instead of placing the call and getting a positive relationship response, the sim looked at my sim and said "You really have some issues to work out. I'll leave you alone while you deal with it". Blew me away. Now THAT developer deserves a prize.

...?

Sorry, it's just that I took a romantic pic on the smartphone with no social group standing whatsoever.

That is funny and nice eskie. I could love that, but when my sim ask the " tell someone how good a friend I am" interaction it goes through very well. Just don't know how it benefits my sim, so I will try it again.

I have a town filled with social group set for them. I just put in Twallan's updated mods last night, so I thought EA Story Progression was issuing them. As my Sims talk to and befriends them, they are uping his influence, also being a computer whiz doesn't help anything. From playing computer games to playing chess, my military man is overcoming being a jock to a complete nerd. Now his feelings get hurt when he is called a nerd by the jock socialites. Frustration I tell you.

You will get better answers on his wiki. Since that is where the mod is hosted.

I've put the mod back almost immediately (no updating was needed) and it is working fine at University as well as in the homeworld.

When sims "Play Online" or "Play Online With . . . (another sim) using a video game console and the television, a Hands Free Ear Piece/Mic combo appears in the sims ear and they talk crap while playing ! LOL
Also, the relationship with the other Sim their playing an online game with increases while they play together
