In my last blogentry I mentioned I had some trouble. Well, I tried to remove the bar from Edit town and replace it with a new one. It didn't help at all, they where still stuck there. So I removed the bar again and also removed the actual 'lot' too and to my surprise I saw some small 'ants' where it used to be. When I got in closer I saw this!
All sims still stuck! So in the end I deleted the whole thing and started a new neighbourhood!
But despite this, I really enjoy this EP.

I just love the new EP and all the new actions with it. I have been playing a lot, but there are a few bugs unfortunately.
My sim is a celebrity level 3 at the moment and she gets invited to a few parties. But when she arrived the sim isn't even at home. She also gets a few visits and they ask via the intercom to come in but they never arrive. So one day I took her to the Bridgeport Sportsbar and what do I see there?
All these sims outside the club!
They couldn't get away and are standing there all the time! Hungry and feeling awful. Puking and screaming!
I got her up to the club but it was deserted so I sent her down again but the elevator took a very long time to arrive. When it did, 13 sims got out of it!
No wonder the parties gets canceled and no visitors arrive when they say they will.
I hope EA can fix this in a patch as many of these sims are standing outside the club 24/7.

I haven't really tried this as a profession yet and this was the first time for me. My sim lives in Barnacle Bay and this is one of her catches the other day. It's another angle of one of the screens I uploaded.She really enjoys fishing and does it almost all day and night long when I let her.
I also want to say thanks to all of those that have left comments on my screens. I do appreciate it and sometimes I can't reply to you so in this way I want to say a big thank you.

I usually don't buy stuff packs but I made an exception this time as there where going to be a few lovely cars.
My sim got a Cabriolet, it looks great I think.
I've only tested this one and the cheap Vespa. But after installing I have noticed a few 'issues'.
One is when playing my new sim Sylvia, I sent her to France and the tomb had already been 'used' although this was the first sim in this family. The treasures where there but the hidden doors and other stuff where already opened.
The other thing that happened (I think as I haven't noticed this before) is that I suddenly have furniture on 2 hills in Riverview like this!
Has anyone else seen this before?
Overall I'm a little bit disappointed as I had hoped there would be some more clothing, but now it's not that long before the next EP is here.

Finally it's here and of course I installed it at once after upgrading with the patch. I have played a little today and also looked at the new features. The best one I think is that we finally can add more empty lots so we can expand the towns as we want. In edit town this is possible and there are several sizes from 10x10 to 64x64.
I placed a new lot for the Junkyard, it was a bit tricky at first to get the best location as the lot is flat but after looking around in Riverview where I'm playing at the moment, I found a place for it. I sent the Sim Bot there to dig for some junk to eat!
I've also played the career Stylist for a little while as you can see on one of my screens. A disaster it was when he tried to do a makeover but he'll get better I know.
I'm enjoying it, are you?

I've got some NPCs before charming the gnome and I have wondered if this can happen to our sims as well. Tonight I got this confirmed as I was playing my Sasha. She sat and charmed and the first thing that came up was the Gnome.
Here he is on his way down.
After this the usual snake appeared.

The program I used to make the reflection picture in the previous blogpost is called Reflet. You can download it from here and it's very easy to use. Here is another example, I have resized the picture and cropped it to make it more rectangular. Then I added the reflection and made it just 50% of the height. Not 90% as in the previous picture.
This makes the picture not so large in height.

As you might have seen I have made 2 galleries with effects on screens I have uploaded. I really like to play with effects and here is anoher effect that looks great with photos, screens or any type of picture. Have a look in the galleries if you like, I'll add more to them now and then.
