In Verona: Chapter 40 - Part Two

Flowers. Everywhere, flowers. Surely, some poor garden somewhere had been denuded for this as the flowers were fresh. It was absolutely lovely, but she couldn't understand it. Paulina noticed a touch of soil in the heavy floral scent. Lady Montague and Lady Bianca kept a very tidy house. If either of them knew their furnishings had been covered with uprooted flowers, they would be very angry. And who would ever think of such a silly thing?

Tales From Elsewhere- Update 2

This is part one- only the Altec family.

The Butterfield Legacy 1.1

Allow me to introduce you to.. The Butterfields!

I was inspired to do a BACC, as well as Apocalypse challenge, so I'm switching off between them, for variety.

The prologue for my BACC, Harmony Bay, may be found here:

Question -

Sooo I've spent most of the day fighting with my game, trying to make it run better, etc. I deleted a bunch of CC and even a few mods that I just didn't find useful anymore. apparently along the way I deleted part of a mod that was ACTUALLY needed or something because when I went back to play again I got this:

Sims2EP9 2014-09-11 19-31-46-90
When clicking on a sim to interact with them social wise.. the pie-menu has about 10 options for DEBUG- SUPER DUPER HUG and a lot of options that SHOULD be there are missing. Not to mention everyone in the household is spamming each other with 'friendly hugs' yet I can't even get the option to actually have them try to have friendly hugs with anyone.

I play with InTeen, InSim, and a few other very minor mods. I have all the flavor packs for InTeen as well and up until now, everything has been playing together very nicely. Anyone have any ideas what this problem could be or what I might have deleted to cause this? I'm off to google to see if I find anything right now and will edit if I do, BUT thought I would ask here and see if anyone else might have had something similiar happen before and know what to do..

EDIT: Probably should have googled first. I think I found what happened and tried one of the fixes I found for it. Hopeing next time I go in game it'll be fixed but I'd love to hear everyones suggestions and how they've fixed the issues before along with links if mods of any kind are needed just incase my fix doesn't work! Thanks! 

Quick way to prevent duplicate CC?

Hi everyone :)

So my game has been crashing recently. Thankfully I have my CC organized to a tee! I discovered the problem was from certain CC and I used Sims2CleanPack Installer to remove empty packages and duplicates, just in case.

At this point I had all folders, save for the Downloads one, so bye bye awesome lots.

Thankfully, my game stopped crashing - success!

But this has made me want to be even more cautious now with CC duplicates borking up my game.

I noticed one of the biggest culprits is when I download furnished houses. There is such awesome furniture that simmers use, but S2CP never tells me if I have this cc already or not. So after installing lots I need to rescan the entire Downloads folder just to mark duplicates, and later use DDO to sort them into the subfolders I have set up.

It is a painstaking process and I am certain I must be doing something wrong here :(

So this is my question: When I'm installing furnitured lots how can I make sure I am not installing CC that I already have?

Thank you guys :)
