Oh, well, I'll hang on to it until I install AL... bound to happen one day (I've loads of downloaded houses that require it, so I have themes that are already set up for AL & M&G, just have to get around to playing them.)

I'm glad I tried it out, though, since it means you can alter the instructions and, hopefully, won't have loads of people posting issues about it.

The really odd thing was that the girl in my hood who had the progress bar above her head when she went to sleep, still had it when I next played her, and only lost it after going to school and returning - so if a stuck meter appears, it seems that the sim needs to leave the lot to lose it, rather than the lot to be left and reloaded.

Unfortunately, I can't test this yet, since my simming computer doesnt have an internet connection right now.  I'm looking forward to trying this though!

Also added a new comment to the original Blender download, including this mod as an attachment (easier to find for those who are already picking up the Blender).

Coming out of lurk for a moment...I keep running into trouble randomising skills using TJ's Blender. I find it often assigns too many skillpoints, and I have to re-roll many times until the sim gets a vaguely believable amount of skills.

I know this is massively out of date and presumably fixed using the skill limiter, but I just wanted to share the way I get around this; I use TJ's college adjuster, it has an option to randomise skills with a max of 5. This is quite handy for giving adults or teens a smattering of skills without overloading them.

Doesn't the SimManipulator have a similar facility?
