This is totally normal Your pet just wasn't happy enough. If the positive moodlets add up to a very good mood and the mood meter thingy is higher than the little notch, lifetime happiness points will be added constantly. I use this to collect some points for my toddlers, even if they don't have wishes yet.

This can be done with babies too, but it's much more challenging to get and keep their moods elevated. I consider it a success if a baby ages up to toddler with a couple of hundred (or really any number greater than 0) happiness points already.

Thank you for the answers. I don't use to give this panel so much attention but this time I just happen to see it and found it odd. But OK, I understand. No, the horse was not very happy as it was raining (and there is no room for a barn on the lot).

Where does the game get names for fish that your Sim puts into fish bowls? I usually go with the default name, and recently have noticed a theme with the names the game is using (Elizabeth, Emily, and Garrett are characters from different video games and also the names the game suggested for the fish that my Sim put into bowls towards her LTW.)

Does getting a degree while they already have the job related to the degree give them a sallary boost? I notice they don't get jump to the relevant level instant-iniously? but I didn't pay attention if they sallary pay has changed.

P.S. Sorry for my bad english.

No, and that's very annoying. Whenever I plan to send my sims to Uni after they have already been in the workforce (as YAs or Adults with full time jobs), I have to remember to try and put them in a different career to begin with than the one I ultimately want for them. And that's not always possible since storylines evolve and plans change. But sometimes I'll give graduates who return to their existing careers a promotion and maybe a Bonus (raise) by way of MasterController for all the academic effort.

Is there a way to stop my sims from getting massive amounts of time off after getting pregnant? I have master controller and story progression, and had set it to not give them any time off (so I thought), but they seem to have gotten over 5 days off anyway.

The SP options dictate what sims stand to get over and above what they are getting from EA as a base number, which in turn varies by career and job level. The SP values do not replace the game values, they add to them. Thus the trick is to use Town (Caste, Household, Sim) Options and set Pregnancy > Maternity Leave to a negative number. How negative a number to use depends on whether you want to see any parental leave at all or just less of it across the board. Changes made this way would only impact future pregnancies, not ones for which sims have already been granted paid leave.
(SP Population add-on module required)

MasterController can be used to add or take away days off already accumulated, but it can't do anything for future automatically made allotments. MC > (Sim) > Intermediate > Career > Days Off > (enter a negative number to take days off away that have already accumulated; use Status > Career to see how many that might be already for any given sim).
(MC Cheats add-on module required)

Thank you so much Igazor!

I have another stupid question. It seems like every time my game creates a new sim they get added as a roommate to my house. It’s not really a big deal, as I can just dismiss them, but I’m more-so curious as to what I messed up to cause this to happen, haha! Is this a known issue/setting in MC or SP?

If the residential lot on which your household is living is showing as Residential-Regular (or Ownable) in Edit Town, then this means you probably have the town's Roommate Service enabled. They need to be called up to cancel it or else whenever you dismiss a Roommate, a new one will be provided for you by the next sim morning. Asking a sim to be a roommate through social interactions will engage the ongoing service as will using MasterController's Add Roommate function.

If the lot on which they are living is showing as Residential-Apartment, then there is no way to switch off the Roommate Service as that is how that kind of lot is supposed to work. This lot type (from Uni) is meant to emulate a dormitory-like setting away from Uni World. The lot type in this case can be changed, again through Edit Town, but not while your sims are living there and most players find it needs to be changed to a Community Lot type first and then Residential (Regular or Ownable) again to get the new designation to stick.

Anyone else miss contests?
Photo contests, building contests, cc contests....
We don't seem to do anything as a community around here anymore.

I started playing The Sims 3 a few days ago coming from The Sims 2, I ran into some minor issues and I don't know if they're part of the game or caused by mods?
When I direct my sim to buy drinks to have with a friend, after the friend gets the drink form my sims hand, my sim gets stuck holding an invisible cup and I have to reset them;
When my sim is sitting at a table with a friend without doing any other activity and I direct them to talk, they do the talking animation but don't get any relationship increase/decrease. When they're eating however, they do increase their relationship as I can see the icon above their heads;
My sim's best friend died, I got the notification, the wishes my sim had related to them disappeared, however, my sim didn't mourn their death (never got the mourning moddlet), I thought that was strange;
Can someone help me? Are these things normal? Are there mods to fix them?

Hey, welcome to Sims 3

This sounds all very buggy to me. Non of these things happend to me before.

For the missing mourning moodlet, does your sim have the cold-hearted reward? This would make him immune to after death sadness. Otherwise the moodlet should be applied if they were really best friends.

Do you already have some mods in game ( because you mentioned, it could be caused by mods)? Have you ever tried the game without them and is the problem still there? There is a thread here that lists recommendations for mods if you are new to the game: https://modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=517365 I would at least go with NRaas Overwatch and MasterController to keep the game playable and help you out of situations where something unexpected happens.

Thank you Good to know it's not unmodded game behavior, I'll try to find out what's causing it.
No, my sim doesn't have that reward. I'm using many nraas mods including all the recommended ones for performance, I'm also using the fixes mods recommended in this guide (I did all the required steps on it all well), and a few other mods. I'm also playing in Midnight Hollow, and only have the ambitions and late night expansions (don't know if that's relevant). I'll check right now if the invisible cup and talking while sitting glitches happen without mods.

Edit: these things still happen without any mods unfortunately (I only couldn't test the mourning moodlet one), I tested on two different worlds as well.

Judging by the whole 5 people who showed an interest I'd say it's not something that would get off the ground. You have to have 3 judges. Also there's the whole forum rules problem that says to host a contest you've had to host a contest here before...

I think it's that you have to have participated in a contest before. I know contests are moderated now as in the old days we had a whole load started up only for the 'host' to abandon it... very disappointing. The rules were to prevent that, but seem to have put people off altogether.

@MurderPrincessK: I don't qualify to host a contest at all. But we could really nicely ask someone who has hosted a contest in the past and is still active here... To host a contest seems quite time consuming so there should be at least some kind of feasibility study before we bother one of the 'old' contest hosts. Perhaps someone gets in the mood to do it, if s/he sees that there is a high enough number of interested people (if there is at all). I'm thinking of a poll thread here in this forum, like "What kind of contest are you interested in?" Building, Writing, Photography, I don't do contests - like that? I cannot do that on the phone, but perhaps tomorrow on my pc. Or do you think it is useless and we are not enough active users here anymore?

Posted under Rules for hosting found here: https://modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=531036#host

To Be a Host: You must qualify to be allowed to host your own contest on this site. Firstly, you must have at least 20 posts (in any forum on this site). Secondly, you must have successfully participated in at least one contest on this site as either a judge or a contestant. Successfully participating in a contest means that you judge for the entire duration of the contest OR you must have made it through to the end of a contest if you've chosen to participate as a contestant. Note: Single round contests will not qualify you to host.

I don't qualify if those are the rules, but if I could I wouldn't mind picking the end of year calendar photo contest back up for sims 3 only. I think if you advertised it on the main forum to let people know it was happening you might actually get participants.

Is it possible for an elder Sim to get pregnant of an alien baby (abduction type), even if using NRAAS?

I would like to extend this question: Is it not possible to get an alien abduction in an overstuffed household, even if all the NRaas mods are in place to allow more than 8 sims?

So I use NRAAS to compact CAS (no recolours shown until you edit colour) so that CAS loads a lot faster. But in CAS you can't create multiple outfits per category. When I go into plan outfit at a dresser, all the category filters are enabled again and CAS is not shown in compact way.Making it slow again.

Does anyone know how to create multiple outfits with compacted display and disabled category filters from NRAAS?
