ACR 2 - beta 5a and auto woo in VaporWare Spa
« on: January 10, 2010, 04:06:05 AM »
This never happened with beta 4a, but it does now... I'm not sure if it's ACR's fault, so I need some input.

I selected Wanda, clicked Crystal (her partner) and told her to 'Casual.../Auto Woo'. They chose to use the VaporWare Submerged Spa. They both got in, and Wanda ask Crystel to come cuddle. They cuddle, and then Wanda chooses her next action... and freezes! Shortly after that, her partner freezes too. I forced errors on both of them, had them reset, and tried again... same thing happened.

Then I turned it around and had Crystal initiate the auto woo. Again, Wanda started the cuddle, and Froze !! I've included Wanda's error-log from this last attempt. What's going on?

ETA: Another oddity, whenever I force errors in this case, the error-log on the second sim overwrites the one of the first... Possibly because the errors are linked to some factor common to both sims? The interaction? The Spa? I don't know, but I've now also included Crystal's error log.

ETA2: In fact 'Casual.../Woohoo.../Hot Tub' causes the same situation, which it most certainly never did before.

ETA3, April 30, 2011: removed the attached logs... both downloaded about a hundred times... what do people see in them? :P

I had two sims freeze up in the love tub that you get from aspiration rewards last night. I force an error on both sims and dismissed it. If it happens again today I will add an error report.

I just had two sims who froze in a hot tub (custom) too. They are visitors on a community lot. It wasn't enough to cancel the action when I made them selectable, I had to force an error on them.

I'll look into this.
Some people are like Slinkies. Not really good for anything but they bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.

i too am having problems with the aspiration reward hot tub and acr 2 v.5a... seems they will freeze and just never woohoo - however, my own controllable sim is not frozen, she can get out actually, that was just luck, now she's getting frozen too - actually, everybody is, even townies who are automonously getting in intending woohoo, everybody who tries an acr hot tub interaction becomes frozen in the hot tub and will not get out no matter how many times a non-stuck sim tries to interact with him... force error gets him out, but thought I should report it too :)

It doesn't seem to happen with beta 4a.  It was annoying me with 5a so I switched back to 4a and haven't had it happen since.  :hmm:

Same here. Beta 4a is stable enough in that respect.

I've been getting the same thing with all hot-tubs, just so you know.

Also, while we're on the subject - is there any way to curb the insistance of other sims to flock to a hot tub that's being used for ACR, then throw constant tantrums about being unable to use it? Dunno if it's ACR or Eaxis related, but it's infuriating - they do nothing else :pissed:

I recently had a sim who was equally fed up with it and simply jumped in. Twice. Once before the couple began to make out and then again afterwards.
I don't know if they would be unable to get in without ACR (which generally is helpful because it would be annoying if you constantly have to shoo other sims out of the tub) but the attraction is definitely there, especially on community lots. About half of them want to get into the hot tub and the other half stands around because they want to interact with one of the sims in the tub.
That tendency looks very EA to me. When I let my sims do what they want they show a distinct preference for sims which are engaged with an object instead of others standing around doing nothing. They wait endlessly to greet a sim browsing a clothing rack or a jewellery display and completely ignore the other one waiting to greet them.

It's very much the same if you use autosocialise at parties - if a couple have made for the hot tub, that's where your sim heads, and just stands around waiting..... so I tend to think it's Maxis coding which would need to be altered for any specific mod which affects social behaviour etc.

So version 4, huh?  I'm all for trying that, but I have a very newbish question on the subject - do i have to uninstall version 5 from my hoods or can I just let the version 4 files overwrite?  i'm trying to avoid any borkyness by doing the wrong thing as I am actually doing a contest challenge at present.... :nervous:

I think you'd best put safety first, and remove all 5a files, and start the game like that, before putting 4a into place. But then, I may be accused of being over-cautious.

You have to un-install 5a first or 4a won't work properly.

as BO said - "remove all 5a files, and start the game like that, before putting 4a into place"
