I use the Longer Dates one, works well for me. I don't usually have my Sims eat out though.

Is anyone else using the UC and UC Inteen having trouble with sims made as adults-either premades or CAS-with their biological clocks spawned and in inventory being told they can't get a job due to poor grades? Can be fixed by aging down to teens and back to adults or by going into SimPE and manually setting their grades.

Is it Inteen or is it my mods, in other words?

I ask on here as I only wanted rough/quick opinions:

Out of the options Acer AMD A-10 9600 R5 and Intel I7-3820, but other specs very similar, which processor seems generally better for gaming?

My friend are willing to give his old Intel i7 to me,but unless its a BIT better, Im not sure if I would need it, as its much a older type processor. But I also heard i7 are more superior in general but 3820 sounds like an old one.

I don't use InTeen myself... I do remember it being unsupported nowadays tho... so I'm not sure how much help there's possible to get.

I don't know specifically. However, just for TS2 purposes, older processors (as in, NOT multicore) are actually better, as TS2 doesn't understand how to use multiple cores. The newer multicore processors can actually slow down the game. My Simming machine deliberately has a 3.2GHz Core2Duo processor -- the oldest I could find but still decently-fast, and which was cutting-edge when the game was first produced -- because all I do on this machine is do Sims-related things (playing the game, creating stuff, etc.) and dink around on the internet. For computing in general and for newer games and such, newer-with-more-cores is obviously better, but for TS2 specifically? Not so much, really.

@Sunbee There is now a version of Inteen at its download site on Simbology that says specifically that it's for UC. I don't know if the mod itself is actually updated, though. The install instructions are. (I know this from trying to help someone on another thread ) Whatever the case, it's worth a shot. I don't have the UC, so I can't really help you otherwise.

Double-posting because I has a stupid question and don't want to muddy the waters and tack it onto my reply above.

Other than using two Myne doors on a room, is there a way to make more than one DORMIE be assigned to a dorm room? I know there's this mod that adds "keys" to Myne doors, but I'm A) I'm not sure if it'll still work with all EPs (tho I suspect it will), but more importantly B) I'm pretty sure that'll only affect playables, as in it allows you to assign more than one playable to a room. I would like for more than one dormie to be assigned to a room. In other words, I want to build a 5-bedroom dorm with room for two beds in each room but have a playable or two plus 8 or 9 other dormies show up to live in it. I suspect this isn't possible, but it'd be nice....

I have an Intel i7 - 3840QM at 2.8Ghz running UC on a laptop with Windows 7 64bit, 16GB ram. It handles it well, but the 3820 is even a bit faster. It's a lot faster than the AMD you mention. I do think the video card, ram, and OS are also important.

iCad, thanks, but I have that Inteen--that's the problem version. With the old one, spawning the bio-clock made the adults employable. However, teen pregnancies didn't stick past the first hour with the old version with UC, so it's . . . hmm, not Hobson's Choice, but some sort of dilemma.

Which is why I asked before troubleshooting if anyone else using it had the same issue, because if it's inherent to Inteen, then there's no point in doing a 50/50. Born in game (or created younger than adult) no problem . . . well, I haven't actually had anyone graduate college who wasn't born in game so I can't say for sure it won't affect young adults, I guess.

Time to create a testing AGS with no other mods. After munchkin bedtime, that is.

Is there an upper limit on the resolution it's possible to play TS2 with? Looking at monitors and wondering if, since Sims games are the most graphically intensive task I expect to use them for, it'd be worth even looking at 4K monitors, or if 1080p is gonna be plenty.

.

Maybe adding two doors per dormroom? Not ideal, obviously, but it might do the job. Er....that's the only solution I can think of other than trying the key thing. Maybe try that out in a test hood

Two Myne doors work, I have that on one of my dorms for couples.

Looking at the downloads on Affinity Sims, does anyone know if the ones I list below produce custom NPCs like the chickens? I had the chickens. Enjoyed the chickens,except that I also have a couple of naughty mods. At least one of them had a strange relationship with the chickens. My chickens had male appendages and some interesting woohoo menu options, which, of course, corrupted a few hoods (not the mod alone, I'm sure ... many people have used the chickens download with no problems. It was the combo of chickens + naughty mod*.) I may like frisky Sims, but there are some areas where I will not venture, thank you very much!

Anyway, it seems the owl on that site doesn't seem to have the same problem. The owl hoots and turns its head. Period. It does not seem to create a custom NPC like the chickens. I have used the owl for years, and checked on Hoodchecker. No custom NPC. No harm. No foul.

Are these animals of the same sort ... NO custom NPCs?

Yeah, I know that. Unfortunately, the design of this dorm is such that two doors just won't fit on the rooms. Basically, I'm converting a large, already-built, 5-bedroom house into a dorm -- sort of like a greek house, but I don't want it to be that in terms of its coding -- and the configuration is such that putting two doors on each bedroom just isn't feasible, and I don't want to rip out and re-do the whole interior to accommodate more doors. I was hoping there was some way I could still have a larger number of dormies in the house, but apparently not. I'll try out the keyed Myne door to see if it'll still work in an all-EPs game, and then playables can pair up in a room, but not the dormies. Ah well. It was worth a shot.

I don't know, but there's an easy way to tell. Download the fowl. If there is a separate file (that's usually called "Controller" or "NPC"), then it has an NPC. If there is no separate file, then there is no NPC.

On CC clothes you can see it sometimes have 2 different options: Slaved and Standalone

Whats the different?

If I remember rightly, for Slaved, there's one copy of shared files like the mesh, tied to one specific recolour. The download is smaller but whatever you do, you cannot attempt to use it without that specific "original version" being downloaded, and the shared bit being put into the Downloads folder.

Standalone can be downloaded as you like, but you will probably have duplicate meshes and the like in your Downloads folder if you are not careful. Also, it takes slightly longer to download.

Slaved means the file draws the texture from somewhere else. If it draws it from the game itself, you will see it in game without problem. If it draws it from another piece of CC, you need to have both files in your game for the slave to work properly (the other file is called the master). With skins, this can be quite complicated. Actually, it can be quite complicated with objects too but whatever.

Ah so that's the different, I see. I usually downloads the standalone because I feel if I use the slaved one I must have a version I don't need or want. Pros and cons with everything I guess.

But thanks for the explanation @ieta_cassiopeia and @maxon !

If you have an object that's slaved to a master object that you don't need, you can use SimPE to hide the master object from the catalog. It's not the best solution though.
