Default Need help with the pie menu
I am playing around with some interactions, and want to change the sayings on my menu. I have not added any new ones, these are currently existing interactions.
But when I go to test them, there is no change in the pie menu. I have changed them through the pie menu strings, and double checked in the functions section, but have not found where else to edit it. Is there a section I am missing, or a proper tutorial. The only tutorial I have found was Echo's for new interactions, but it did not work with the old and changing the pie menu.

There was a recent upload that I used, changing 'change diaper' and 'ask for diaper change' to 'change nappy' and 'ask for nappy change' which worked perfectly fine when I clicked on a sim but doesn't change what the queue says. http://modthesims.info/download.php?t=614207 I left feedback on there but have heard nothing back.

What process did you use to change them? I'm assuming you extracted them from somewhere and put them in a new package, but which set of strings did you extract? Did you change the group number, and what did you change it to? Also, not all of the pie menus are in pie menu strings. Some of them are in text list 12E, I believe.

From my experience, it's one of two things:
- either the language setting is wrong (for instance you edited English, but your game is in English(UK)), which can be avoided by clicking Default language only; or
- the same string set exists as part of a different piece of custom content. If that's the case, reunite them into one file. Either choose which of the CC-s will hold the string set, or pull it out into its own file, making absolutely sure you keep the group and instance IDs the same, so that the TTAB can find it to use. This is good practice for the most common TTAs, such as a Sim's pie menu or destination menu, which different mods can edit in different ways.
Hope this helps.

edit to add: sorry for the double post, network hiccups
