Why?

I noticed that yesterday and I thought it was kind of weird, it seems like less people have been posting the last few days.

Creepy, right?

Well, there's probably more folks going on vacation since graduation is over. At times it does get little quiet around here; happens all the time. It just means others are busy doing different things.

I understand that people have other things that they do Smile
It's just I've gotten kind of paranoid about things like this, since every other site I've been on, once it becomes quiet like this, it never returns :( So I was just worried.

I agree with CindaLove and Neff. It's probably vacation time (I've seen posts by a couple Simmers about being gone for a month or so) and people just being busy. Or, they have issues with their computers which also happens and they are busy trying to fix them (like I did recently when I downloaded some CC that causing my game to stop working--couldn't upload any lots). And, the site does seem to go in streaks, very busy for a while and not so and then busy again.

So, for those of us still here mickeywave , we'll just keep having fun pillowfight . Lilly flower

You're computer got weird after downloading CC?

Usually bad stuff like that happens when you download a mod.

I think that you are correct, TheMysticalPip, and that I downloaded a mod along with the CC. I suspect the mailbox. It was actually a house which came with CC in it. And, there were dozens of things. I just deleted everything I loaded before my TS2 game stopped working--all of it came with that one download. And, fortunately that fixed the problem. I could have gone through all that CC piece by piece but decided not to since I wanted to get back to playing my game. Lilly flower

Sometimes when people upload lots they forget to go into clean installer and delete any mods that might be tagging along with the download.

I've noticed that the only mod that's ever really wrecked my game was inteenimater.

I have problems with the mail box too, i downloaded a lot from mod the sims i used the clean installer and it just showed up as an object recolour so i didn't think too much of it until i played my game and the mail box recolour started to make my game go bad, if i was playing an apartment the original apartment mail box was replaced by a normal mail box it really did interfere with my game i tried cleaning it out but no matter what i did to try and rid of it it was still there so i had to delete all my cc and start over from scratch. it's quite annoying so now i back up my downloads folder before downloading any kind of lot just in case i have that problem again. flower

That's a good idea, usually I'm able to find it in the folder and delete it, but if it's a lot it's not quite that easy.

That's quite true pip, these recolours had so many files and where all just numbers usually you can find it by looking for the name of the recolour.

I used Clean Installer to install and thought I had deleted all mods/hacks, etc. but must have still ended up with one. sad

This is my second game (re-installed) since I did some very bad things (VBTs) without realizing it and really messed up the game. :o I got the same mailbox thing that you did Neff (not sure if it's a mod or hack) but it messed up my mailboxes just the way yours were and I was upset since one of the neat things about apartments is having the mailbox be different, so that, they pay rent rather than the bills that the Sims who own the houses pay. No matter what I did (granted I didn't know as much about the game, then) I couldn't fix the problem. I'm more careful about what I down load now and do only a few things at a time which is what helped me this time since I knew the date I downloaded the problem CC. Because of my first mistakes, now I never download a house with Sims in it or move a house with Sims in it to another neighborhood via the house and lots bin or delete Sims in the Sim bin. I've read that you can only get rid of them safely by "killing" them off or having them die. scratch Thanks EA! I've read that doing these things leaves stray bits of files in the game which causes the game to crash temporarily and eventually, it will crash permanently which is what happened to my game.

So, I try to be as cautious as I can and this game is playing much better. I haven't once gotten the "this application will terminate" message. dancer I look at the first game as live and learn and try not to mess up this installation of my game. rolling lol

That's very true Lilly never ever move sims to another hood or download family's in a lot it is really bad for your game and yes to get rid of sims you no longer want you must kill them off otherwise your left with loads of useless files but those files are the ones that will kill your game if thing's are not done properly.

and i would also say that sometime its important to check as certain lots or sims family may have certain mods or hack listed in red that you do not nessecrely went and during the summer sites can become quiet.
