I like it. Plumbots can provide a Bonehilda replacement for cleaning and repairs and gardening as well but they take up 1 of the 8 sims you can have while Bonehilda doesn't. Plumbots make great multi-generational family stewards, imho. I use them for all the routine stuff that involves a lot of repetition.

I don't like the Sentient trait chip. My plumbots only keep it long enough to get Maintenance Master LTW and then they're done and out it comes. The whole "You didn't say please" routine is a bit annoying.

The "trendsetter" and "entertainer" future achievements don't work, as far as I can tell. The One where you donate simolians to the future fund and bot builder do.

The whole alternative futures is the kind of scripted "follow the storyline" game play that I don't like. I did it once. Nah.

The crashed space ship? IMHO, it's a waste of time. You collect this Llama statues. Big whup.

The most irritating thing about ITF is how future clothing gets mixed in with the "present" clothing, and it just looks jumbled. In the future itself it adds to the feeling of "future", but they really needed to keep future clothing out of the present. I mean, the future sims don't wear present clothing, so why does the present get it mixed up?

Usually, after my sim meets his future descendants, he wants to become a monk. It's like how you Universities "Sim Finder" app always gets a fat sim, only worse. Seems decedents are usually no one you want to know. Not always, but often enough where you're better off just visiting a random future sim.

That's a rhetorical question.

That's because your Sim thought they looked thin in their profile picture, but then found out it was just the angle.
This game is pretty realistic sometimes.

I've always liked ITF. It introduces a cool new way to live in the game. I replaced the future hood with a custom one and recommend it.

Thanks everyone for your insight! It's currently downloading and I've already archived Oasis Landing as its own world, and lots, and everything. Super excited to start building,

Be sure to take lots of screenshots, 'cause I want to see them.

Trendsetter: What's missing? You have to own the lot where the pedestals are placed, "edit" the displayed outfits in CAS and after four Sims bought your stuff you should get a message.
Entertainer: That's because unlike other instruments watching Laser Rhythm-A-Con doesn't advertise fun. There are however some location based motives which do - Dive Bar/Dance Club/Cocktail Lounge/Park/Future Bar as well as Orientation (from UL) and the Future Sim trait.

In every EP world such as the WA worlds, you noticed that they have assigned clothing for those sims that randomly generate with new sims. This is why your homeworld can get random clothings from those worlds but not the other way around.

There is a way around it. You can use NRAAS Dresser + MC clothing filter, which you can customly set those clothes to be banned from your homeworld and only be showing up in futureworld.

I tried NRAAS Dresser. I didn't like it because:
1) Incessant removal of "invalid" clothing. And then telling me about it like a child that filled the potty.
2) Now I had the opposite problem: it was changing future sims clothes to present world and World Adventures. I should have screen captured the sim it made with the Chinese Straw hat, Egyptian Snake arm band, and knee high Present world socks.

Is there a way to make NRAAS Dresser behave? I fooled with it a bit trying to shut it up and not dress my sims in clown outfits, and couldn't figure it out.

Yes, you have to use a custom filter. It is actually more powerful than the CASP editor b/c it allows you to filter clothings based on worlds. But basically it only filters the clothes you add to the custom filter and made with your custom filter setting. I set all the future clothes in my custom filter to be permitted only in the future world.

It is a pain in the butt b/c when you get dresser for the first time, you have to go through all the setting manually and you can't save the setting. It will be saved in the savegame, but if you start a new game, you can't import the setting like MC or SP. I turn off all the random accessory and body hair and makeup.

The other thing is, it lags the game when you allow it to be automatic. I turned it off so it only works when I manually use it. So every now and them, when I see enough future clothes in my world, I go to the town hall and activate it where it will change 50-60 sims. You can also turn off the notification so it doesn't display those things. You can get more information from the NRAAS forums or we can call @igazor and he can add in more details about this.

There are seemingly hostile players on this thread demanding support for a mod I've never used, do not want to use, and do not understand myself. (curls up in the corner mumbling unhappily and eats cookies)

I would suggest the NRaas message board route for better Dresser mod support. My colleagues there know what they are doing with that one.

Welp, Idk where this thread is going but I'd like to thank the users who helped me find the children's clothing set that made me refuse to play ITF until I had it.
Just throwing that out there.

Eh? Sorry I have short term memories sometimes so I'm not really sure what is going on. It is just natural to tag you as the resident NRAAS expert. That and another member Barbasomething, I don't remember. Getting foggy memories with age.
