ACR without the A
« on: February 11, 2013, 11:32:05 PM »
Hi

I just downloaded ACR and I had a few questions.

I mainly downloaded it for the teen/adult interactions for one of my stories. I usually prefer to decide who and when my Sims will shag. I usually plan out my Sims romantic partners and am not impressed if they go for someone else. I run a non democratic game lol.

If you turn off autonomy in the global override, can you change that for one household without having to change the global one? Can you set things like whether or not a Sim will cheat globally (and then change it only for say a house with a Romance Sim).

If autonomy is disabled will the timer still count down, resulting in unhappy sex deprived Sims who aren't allowed to woohoo? XD

Does ACR affect pets? Will I take my eyes off my dogs/cats for 5 minutes and discover one of them pregnant?

Can I turn on/off pregnancy chances, try for baby, jealousy etc. globally or only house by house? Does jealousy etc. still work autonomously even if I've turned off autonomous actions?

Can I choose to only give tokens to Sims I pick? i.e. can I stop the automatic giving of tokens to Sims who don't have them.

Thanks for any help.

Unfortunately, there was never a new documentation for the Final version.  However, most of your questions will probably be answered by this older version of the documentation.

I did read the read-me, but it didn't answer those questions that I saw.

That reminds me; which version should I have?

Since I don't know what expansions you have, I can't really say.  However, I think, if you really don't want the autonomous part, you might try the original Casual Romance.

ZZ, it's a good thing that you ninja'd me :ninja:, because my original answer was rather longish, and not this smart... X) Now I just edited it to compliment you :D

Actually that looks like just what I was looking for! Does it work for Teen/Adult interactions?

I'm honestly not sure, after having a look at the Read Me.  It may be possible, but if not, you could use Inteen, which is also non-autonomous.  I think they would work together, but there's really only one way to find out - back up your game and give it a whirl!

There's also Jenflower's Woohoo Teens, which does work for teen/adult, although I think only the adult can get pregnant.

Right, after traumatising my poor teen Sim in the house I picked to test by making him hit on his stepfather, I have established that Teen/Adult interactions do work with Casual Romance. XD

So, if anyone else ever wants to know if they work ...

Thanks heaps for all the help!

We are always happy to help!  I'm just glad that this has worked for you, and in your case, the old CR seemed to me to do what you wanted with far less bother!

I've been running into some problems in my game and the logs (and testing without all other hacks) seem to suggest that it's CR that's causing them.

Firstly, whenever I'm currently playing an animal (tested with my cat Marie) and she mouses over a sim who is eligible for CR it throws up the attached error and I have to reset her. It's kind of annoying as it's easy to accidentally mouse over a sim while moving through the house, plus it means that I can't make her ask for love etc. If she's asleep it doesn't do it though. I have the control pets cheat in my startup file.

I then tested human interactions and the attached socials threw up the same error and wouldn't let my sims do them (again, making me reset the sims). The others did work.

Finally, I noticed that my apartment neighbours don't have any of the casual romance socials available when I click on them (except for one gearhead townie). Is that a bug or are my sims simply not high enough class to attract the upper class denizens?

I also attached the OETreeDelete file as I don't know what it does and it seems to be deleting stuff, so I don't know if it's causing the bugs. I know CR isn't supported anymore, but I was hoping that someone might either recognise the logs or have had the same problem, so I can see if it's fixable.

Thanks!

Just off hand the type of errors being thrown are caused by mod incompatible with your game. 

What EPs do you have?  The original Casual Romance, and even the first version of ACR are not compatible with the latest EPs.  You can check the threads on them to see what they do work with.  It appears you have Apartment Life, which CR and ACR1 do not support.  ACR2 does though.

What does the HCDU have to say about your mods?  Any potential conflicts that you can't justify?  Do you have the correct version of those other mods also?

Charity, it's a pity it took a load of in-game errors for you to actually begin to answer the question I put to you (albeit obliquely) in #3.  Had you given that information in your first post, I would never have suggested you try Casual Romance.

BTW, a report from the Hack Conflict Detection Utilty, as suggested by AH (www.simwardrobe.com) would actually be more useful than all those error logs.

Going back to your initial question about global and lot autonomy and ACR, I know it's possible to turn off teen woohoo globally and allow it on a lot by lot basis, so I would imagine the same thing applies with many other global options.  Only one way to find out, and it can't hurt your game to try.

HDCU doesn't throw up any conflicts, so it isn't a mod conflicting. It will be because I have all EPs and I didn't notice that it wasn't compatible with them all (and I didn't even spot the question when I went back and looked XD).

Would updating it to work be something I could do myself or is it too complicated?

Maybe I will have to try ACR in a test hood.

Thanks for the answers.

I did say the question was *oblique*.

I would say that, since I know TJ spent months on the original Casual Romance, that updating it would not be easy.

I'm pretty sure you should be able to tailor ACR2 to your liking.  Trying it out in a test hood makes sense, but I'd suggest you keep a careful note of what settings you finally selected so you don't have to remember it all.
