Stupid Zales

Hi Friends.  I tried to play and update those lovely Zales last night, but the file is REALLY crashy.  I do not want to move, AT ALL, since I love that house so much.  And I know I could take it with me to a new town, but I don’t think it would look as pretty outside of Lucky Palms.  It might be okay in Sunlit Tides…  I just wish we could stay put for more than a generation, it’s obnoxious… Anyhoo, just letting you guys know.  When I do manage to get a post up, it’ll still be Ike’s Gen, as Juniper is 11 days from YA.  Here’s a picture of pregnant Ike just for stopping by.
A new Lightning post made it up, however, so go read that if you want.  Until next time, Happy Simming!

    I don’t have the crashing issues, just major lag if I stay in one place more than one generation. But I tend to take the house with me, as it’s not too specific to one town.

    Maybe you could move to a fresh copy of Lucky Palms? Or get rid of some of the family tree. I had to do that by gen 7, and it worked very well. Keep the main heir line, and remove the spares from previous gens. You’ll still have it all blogged and noted, just not in game. I know you’d hate getting rid of (some of) the ghosts, but to make the game playable…

      A fresh copy of Lucky Palms isn’t a bad idea… I could do that. And I don’t have the spares. My ghosts are only the Heir and the spouse. Well, and Imogene… since she drowned in the pool. I’ve left spares behind with every move… but yes! A new lucky palms! That might work…

        You’ll just have to be careful about any townies that you married in – don’t do what I did and have the same townie family in the family tree more than once!

        I haven’t married a Lucky Palms townie! Helen married Ramon from University, and Ike married Tahiya from Egypt!

    Ugh, technical difficulties. I wish you the best of luck with yours! I’ve been trying to start my next generation, but the lag is getting ridiculous and now the save file is corrupt, so… :/ It’s funny how the rules say you should stay on the same lot for the whole challenge, because I’m wondering if that’s possible even with a supercomputer.

    Hahaha, WhaleIke still amuses me 🙂

      Normally, my game gives me a few signs that it’s feeling a little unstable… little lags here, little visual glitches there, and usually I can get a save done real quick before it dies, but right now, it’s running perfectly, then BOOM, crash… outta nowhere. Previously I could go an hour plus without seeing those little warnings, and now I’m getting about fifteen minutes and then a crash… we’ll see though, I’m going to try again soon.

    WhaleIke! It is very amusing, I haven’t seen any of my boys get so fat like Ike did. And can you tell I’m missing playing? I don’t even have my backups with me this weekend to make a new post for the Maloneys 😦
