A few odd questions Empty
PostSubject: A few odd questions   A few odd questions EmptySun Jul 15, 2018 3:48 pm

Couldn't find where to ask about these questions of mine on the Sims forum.

(1) I put some food kiosks on a lot with a skating rink. I think it's category is a Park . Took my teen Sim and her kid sister there for fun which they had but the food kiosk's never opened. Is there a trick to get them to open for the public? They were the only Sims using that lot. No other Sims came on it but they did walk by.

(2) When I canceled some saves they disappeared! I had to go into older saves to find them and get them back. I still wanted them in the game but not to play. Is there a way to keep some Sims in their neighborhood even if you're not going to play them again and want to delete their save?

(3) Does anyone know where the thermostat is in game inventory? I've not come across it. Have seen lots of stuff from previous packs that weren't in game inventory before. Seems like every update brings something new. Or maybe it just finally shows up.

Hi @Gramcrackers

Q/A 1: If you are building a park you will need to be sure it has the 'Park' lot type. There are certain items that are required for it to act like a park in the game.
Food kiosks can be placed anywhere but to get them to work you will need to click on the kiosk and hire someone to work them. Only the ones generated by the game will be automatically staffed.

Q/A 2: Not exactly clear on what you mean by

Do you mean you want to keep certain households to play in other saves?

Or at least to be neighbors to your household?
What I have done is save certain households to the gallery to place in other saves.
An example would be a series of #HeirsSpares Sims that were born in game.

Q/A 3: The thermostat is under Miscellaneous appliances.

To find the thermostat I went to the sort by room: kitchen, then click on the smoke alarm.

I have built a park with a kiosk and found it costs my sim §100 to hire someone. So it stays closed all the time. Maybe one day it will be a good place to have a party. Smile

Hiring a Sim to run a kiosk? Does that mean we can have one of our controlled Sims run one?

EQ, it's to have the old save gone from the Main Menu but the Sims to stay in the neighborhood and be neighbors and grow old naturally as a Sim.
Was shocked to have them be wiped off the face of the Sim worlds. Crying or Very sad

New problem. Posted on Sim forum but since no one has commented in the forum in two days doubt there will be an answer. Definitely not seeing things. the harvested plants are disappearing from my Sim's inventories. If I get them in the fridge right away they stay there, so far, Are they automatically sold or just lost? It's annoying.

And the only thing A Sim can fertilize with has suddenly been limited to fish. My Sims have a Hugh garden now with the new plants and not being able to splice to save room. Some one always has to be fishing.
Interestingly the spliced trees have remained grown and even produced. Only a few spliced plants have grown. They might have produced but I don't know since the harvested produce disappears.

Are there other plant items in your inventory?

When harvesting are you also selling from the plants? What I ended up doing was harvesting one or maybe two individual plants. Then I would either sell all or super sell.

Two families I have played since Seasons.  My generation family: Mom who works, Dad, who stays at home and gardens, mostly, and their 2 girls and 1 alien son. Pretty generic.  No vacations and probably no travel either ( until produce went missing & I tried to replace it ) due to raising the toddler.  Many things breaking all of a sudden , also, so went to play the other family.  Sirat's:  Allan stay at home Sim ( parents left him enough $ so he could stay home). his alien daughters from abductions, one a teen and the other a child and new family member was a child also), and recently added a wife and her daughter. And their resident ghost.   It was Allen's inventory I first noticed the produce had disappeared. Had him harvest and put some in the fridge, kept the rest, but when trying to fertilize only  fish showed in his inventory. Quit playing to look into these things but didn't find any info.  Guess it was still too new or wasn't widespread enough.  When next I went back to playing the game, things had changed.  The produce stayed in Sims inventory and  yesterday Allen could fertilize with fish and plants.  Yeah!  Also the spliced plants bore fruits.  There has been only one spliced plant, so far, that only produced one type of fruit( meaning vegetable/herb.  All the spliced trees are producing all their fruits.  Another Yeah! applause
My gardens are slowly getting organized.  What a chore.

Now I have to figure out why with all the Winter seeds that have been bought, they didn't get a Holly.  The other family got lots of Holly's but when it was planted in the ground it never grew. One got planted in a plant box and it grew.  Conquering the new 'Garden' is a new goal. A lot of new  things to learn.

Have not as yet used the new option to sell harvested plants. I think I answered all your questions. Hope so.
