I fixed a glitch I've had for months in my game where children and teens would make errors every time they tried to come downstairs using my favorite stairs
(and also the square version). I've had to build houses based around keeping kids and teens downstairs at all times because if they wandered up, when they tried to come back down, bam, error. If they wanted to finish painting something, error. The only time there were no errors was when I just told them "go here" but even that sometimes didn't work. So many times they'd go upstairs to do some stupid thing like make their parents' bed and then OOPS ERROR and the school bus disappears. But I played a tester hood and my megahood and no teens or children have had any errors, no disappearing buses or carpools.
All I did was redownload some hacks and I removed two I decided weren't important. I guess before I had old versions? But for now it seems to have worked. I've gotten so used to desperately trying to get kids downstairs before the bus comes that now I forgot how to play without doing that. I can't even imagine what hacks could have been clashing/interfering as I have no stair-related hacks or teen/child-related hacks. I also have no idea why it only happened to those stairs and not regular stairs. Mysteries of sim life, I guess.
Since I've been playing the megahood as a personal challenge to get all sims with the "have 10 children" want fulfilled I've had boatloads of children everywhere. I want all the Maxis sims to have children in addition to the premade children (so the Pleasants have had more than just Lilith and Angela... in fact Daniel wanted 10, and Kaylynn supplied some- she lives in a little cottage I built next to the house so I could play her without having to load another lot and Mary Sue flirts with her all the time as well, and now Kaylynn wants 10...) All these sims want children because I've switched most romance sims to family sims, since I hate playing romance sims in relationships and they annoy me in general.
Anyway I'm sure you're all already aware but PMBD and MATY desperately need money to keep their servers online so if you can donate, I hope you do.
YAY THIS POST ISN'T WHINY.
