Perhaps it would, indeed. Still I'd like the option to freeze preferences too, since that would at least preserve conditions in already existing hoods ;)

Since the fix has been DL-ed 63 times already, and nobody is reporting any breaks, I'll upgrade back to 2b5b again, too. With the fix, of course... :D
I just hope there won't be any hood resets...

The only downturn is that some of my sims use their new freedom to act stupid again. It only happened with one teenager so far though. After her boyfriend got jealous and furious with her and his cousin for the second time because they were kissing and hugging right in front of him, I made her selectable and set her to totally faithful with the exception of low flirts. The next moment she accepted a hugging once more, completely ignoring that her steady boyfriend was already in pieces and had broke down crying before.
But I guess teens are a special case and none of my adult faithful couples have attempted to stray so far.

Some sims are just like people... Some of those also mistake 'freedom' for 'a good excuse to misbehave or act stupidly'... And teenagers... 'nuff said ;)

Just don't forget to uninstall the tokens - which I did when I reinstalled it.  Didn't get a hood reset, but did get a couple of weird pregnancies that I had to fix.  :P  This is the second time I've forgotten to do that and was blessed it didn't completely reset the hood.

Not worthy of the bows as I seem to have to learn the hard way, then get distracted and forget to do what I do know and do bad again.  Hopefully there will be no third time.  :lol:

What do I have to set with the new version if I don't want sims to cheat under no circumstances, including teenagers? Autonomy 1 - static and No cheating allowed - static? I tried both settings separately and they don't seem to do the trick anymore. Is it possible that Chris Hatch's adjuster bouquet on the lot interferes with the ACR settings?

If you have the bouquet set to autonomy of any kind, it will overrule any ACR settings.

ETA: It only overrules it with the bouquet options, like if you have autonomy on, they will do the wild sex actions and making out (if not disabled at the bouquet), but the usual ACR actions should be untouched.

I have it on one community lot, but usually don't touch the autonomy, so it is restricted to the room it is in. Sims just seem to be more likely to cheat (not with the wild sex options, generally) there.

Maybe my game or ?.
Ok I am starting a new hood with Sleepycats Pleaseantview V2 sims which have no mermory of friends.
Goth - Gretle and Victor are downtown on a date they have not met the Crumplebottoms yet but as soon as Simon enter the lot Gretle and Simon are off to the Photo Booth to Woohoo. I stop them before they get in and set up ACR to have Gretle be totaly faithfull and then try to copy it to all sims in the hood and a error pops up and it wont set it up and I hit the cancle and nothing happen so I hit the reset and still nothing so I hit the delete and Gretle disapear (reset her back to zero on every thing) and I have to use the teleporter to get her back. I wait till they get back to the house and try it again thinking it was being downtown that did it and the same thing happens.

ACR will not copy settings to all sims in the hood with out a error.
I have tried it on a lot and it will works if there are no kids, todlers or babies on the lot or you will get error. (At least I do.)
I am thinking that ACR is trying to give tokens to kids and below so that might be the problem.
The only conflicts that show up are the Inteen ones.

I have all EP and SP.

I think this could be one of the many errors that occur if you have sims without aspirations who should have them.

Is there a easy way to find out who dont have a aspiration.

Can some one make a mod that will give aspiration to every sim in the hood?

No, a mod like that is not available or able to be made I believe.

There is no really easy way to do this.  You can either check all of your sims individually in game or through Simpe.

Here it is discussed the sorting method in Simpe.

http://www.simbology.com/smf/index.php?topic=2211.msg44955#msg44955

It's also talked about in another thread on here, but I don't remember which one and can't seem to find it.  Maybe someone else knows where it is and can point you to it.

I found this, but I think there is another thread talking about it.

Base Game townies aren't such a problem, since you know their names (or most of us do) and which few of them start out as kids, and spotting any of those that have aged to teen or older is pretty easy.  It's the other townies and downtownies who change names from one install to the next who are the real PITA!

BTW I had the occasional townie kid when I was playing Desiderata who had an aspiration they shouldn't have had - I wonder sometimes if that would confuse ACR?

This is a new hood and the only sims in it are the Goth and Crumplebottoms so no townies should have age up yet. I have went through this hood with simpe and have found only 2 that needed it but still get the error.
All the bin sims have been put in downtown and played for 1 sim day.
Have any of you been able to copy setting to all sims in any hood.

I would never try that... To me it makes no sense to have all sims use the same personal settings. There are a number of things that can be set globally, and I'd prefer to use those options where possible.

If there are teens or kids on the lot adults will not sleep naked(sleep nude), I have taken out my sleep naked mods and just try the one in ACR and nothing happens, they will not sleep naked after woohoo, so I put sleep naked(sleep nude) mod back in, if there is no kids or teens on the lot the adults will sleep naked, but if there is a teen or child on the lot the adults will not sleep naked but the teens and kids will.
Could you try one or the other sleep naked or sleep nude mods and see if you can get it to work for adults please.
Thank you.

Reading this section, I've discovered I'm waaaay behind the times on the latest ACR2 release.  And yay - one of the things fixed is sims freezing in the hot tub!  (I knew there was something I wanted to find out about besides the minor thing I wandered over for, but couldn't remember what it was!)

Okay, so questions about installation:
Do I just need to remove the older files from Downloads and put the newest in?  From what I understand, it's good to be sure no sims are in the middle of any ACR actions/interactions during the switch, and I'm 99% sure I'm good on that score.  I generally make sure sims aren't doing much of anything before leaving a lot. 

Will I need to re-run the gender prefs for the 'hood, or will the settings as set under the old files be retained?

Yes.

You may need to change the percentages (to what you prefer), but any sims that already have a gender preference will not suddenly change.  You may also need to reset other settings (been a long time since I switched).

Yeah, there are definitely settings I'll need to re-tweak.  I expected that, and it's no biggie. 

Thank you, SleepyCat!   

Man, I'm looking forward to sims being able to autonomously woohoo in hot tubs again.  That freeze bug has been driving me nuts.

Erm- what link are you talking about?

All I see off hand in the 1st post that's *clickable* is the ACR ZIP which downloads just fine. (Maybe something is different for new posters, but I don't think so...?)

It's working peachy for me too. (Just tried it again.)

Poena, I sometimes get the *index.php* file thing when my either the link or my computer is being fuzty (trying to download files *too quickly* at MTS often triggers it for me) but 99 times out of 100 it's just a matter of trying again.

Just curious- are you trying to download by left-clicking or by right-clicking/SaveAs...? (I've often found when one method is being a pain the other often works fine.)

If you still can't get it working right I can email the ZIP to you.  :smile:

I'm getting the index.php too (Firefox/logged in). Tried it with IE/not logged in and the file downloaded perfectly.

Just for the record, I'm both logged in and running FireFox & it (still) works fine for me.

It's giving me a php file in firefox version 8.00 also. I never had it do that before in firefox.

Looks like one more reason for me to avoid upgrading!

I've heard tell of similar problems with FF 8, which is too bad. I hope *they* fix such silliness soon.

I am curious if the Index.php thing happens when trying to download via left-click, via right-click-save-target-as or both? I know in the past I've had one way work when the other wouldn't.

ZW I just tried it both ways and got the same thing.It only seems to be this site that does it,I haven't had this issue with any other site when I try to download a file.

I've heard complaints about FF 8 not liking the downloads at SimWardrobe either.

Urg. So much for computers making our lives simpler, eh?  :biglaugh:

*blinks*

I see an annoying pop-up just appeared in the lower right of my screen telling me that FF v 8.1 is now available, but I think I'll pass on that at the moment!

Technology is great when it works, but a major PITA when it doesn't. Instead of making life easier, it makes life harder when it messes up.

I used Firefox until release 5 or 6, and then started having problems. I now use Chrome, and haven't had problems with it so far.

I had to redownload all my mods, and I was able to download ACR just fine.

I thought about switching to Chrome, but I'm addicted to using Thunderbird for my email retrieval (too lazy to *have* to log in at each inbox I own) & wasn't sure if I could keep it if I switched. (I would doubt it as it seems everyone wants you to use *their* set of toys.)

Plus I would hate to lose my awesome NoScript & AdBlock plug ins, not to mention my collection of bookmarks.

Still, given the way FF seems to be going lately (that 8.1 pop-up is getting very aggressive!) I might give it a try pretty soon.

I'm pretty sure you can keep T-Bird for your mail client.  I installed Firefox and T-bird separately, then uninstalled T-Bird and everything was still happy.

You can save your Firefox bookmarks, literally.  Somewhere, there's a menu item or button that will save them off as an html page, which you can just open up in your new browser.  Might be called export instead of save.
