Hello lovely people

I'm going to post in this thread when I need your help figuring out some game play issues if that is ok? Sometimes I'm clueless, just the other day EQ showed me that there is an option to select creations that include custom content in the library, I had no idea *face palm*

First couple of Qs:

  1. I don't currently receive notifications when people post comments on my gallery uploads. Is there a setting to receive notifications?
  2. Are you able to drag fish from debug mode to fish bowls or your sim's inventory? I can't seem to do that in TS4
  3. Is there a way to disable the welcome wagon or vampires breaking in?

1. I only see the notices in-game when actively playing. Not sure if there is a special setting.
2. Some of the current debug fish cannot be moved into personal inventory or dragged into bowl.
You can find Fish Collection uploaded by me in the gallery. Try these to see if you can put them in fish bowls in live mode. These were gathered from several collections uploaded by Kenleigh_Dean a long while ago.
3. Private Dwelling lot trait to prevent any Sim from randomly visiting your lot. This includes the Welcome Wagon. If it is removed the Welcome Wagon will show up.

Hello lovely Simmers

Ok, so when I am in build/buy mode, the build value I see is not the same as the final value once I've uploaded the build to the gallery. At first I thought it is because the build excluded the lot value (i.e. price of the empty lot before building) but the figures don't add up even if I add the lot value to the build value.

Is this a glitch in my game or is there something that I'm missing?

To my knowledge this has always been that way. I've noticed it too once I've uploaded one. So I don't believe it's a glitch in your game. thumbs up

Ok, I have the answer now after checking what prices I should use when participating in BnS. This is my understanding:

Objects depreciate in value when we hit play (similar to TS3), thus prices in build/buy mode will go down if you are play testing. But the depreciated prices won't transfer to the gallery (unlike in TS3), it will revert back to the original values.

The price of the lot is not included in the gallery price and needs to be added.

W0W That is great information. I had noticed differences in value between build and live mode. But I had not really paid much attention to why there was a difference.

Good to know @Simrissie Rykle! One question, how do we add the lot price?

Also, I usually save my builds to my library before play testing them. Then if something went wonky (routing issues) or I forgot to add something, I exit out of the game. Then go to my library and delete the first one and when I go back in to fix whatever was the issue I don't do it through live play. I go through the wrench icon (build), fix and then save to library.

@MJNN There is no formal way of adding the lot price - we just have to remember that Sims will have to pay the "gallery" price + the lot value where it is placed. Good to know if you are building a starter home.

I've noticed that when you build from the wrench icon (not live play) the value does not depreciate. It is all a bit confusing confused
