There is unfortunately no way to get your child back once it was taken away by the social worker. Your child will be available for adoption by other families, but any Sim which has the "Child taken away" memory will never be able to adopt a child. To avoid this happening in the future, here is when the social worker will take your child away: When the ...

There are many differences in gameplay between the two games. I don't have Generations or the newly-released Showtime expansion packs, nor most of the stuff packs, but the main differences should still be the same between the games. Open-World The main difference is the open-world characteristic of The Sims 3. Unlike in the two previous games, your are not ...

In order to break up/divorce in the Sims 2, the couple's relationship needs to be pretty low. There is no happy way to do that. One way is to purposefully be mean and fight with your spouse. Another way is to have an affair and make sure your wife sees it. She'll be pissed and hurt and you can then break up with her. I suppose not interacting with her for ...

To trigger the "Break Up" option, the sims in question must have both a Daily and Lifetime relationship of 45 or less. How the relationship reaches this point can vary. If you don't want to fight with your wife, you'll have to ignore her for a long time - there's a 2 point relationship decay every day, so you'll have to wait somewhere on the order of 2-4 ...

"Growing up" is a particularly strong memory, and sims who have grown up poorly (due to aspiration failure) will spend the first couple of days in their new age moping about it while a picture of the bad memory appears in their thought bubbles. Accordingly, because this is a negative memory, growing up badly will allow sims to learn, and then gossip about, ...

The only ingame interface is within the Sim's memories. I believe that SimPE, a third party editor is also able to read the data file, but it's unlikely to give any more information than the memories screen.

"Llama + Ostrich + Orange + Strawberry = perfect (skills-booster), aphrodisiac." Although this is only available later, once the U-Probe-It Refrigerating Organism (top-tier refrigerator) has been unlocked by acquiring enough Aspiration points, it is crazy useful. As the quote from my journal says, it's a skill-booster ("perfect" being a descriptor for a ...

To whomsoever it may concern I was able to solve this problem. The very first problem was being able to run SIMS 2. I solved this by going to compatibility tab and checking "run as administrator" tab. After running the crashes were probably due to SIMS 2 problems with windows 7. I found a patch online in the ea sims website (under cd/dvd section) which ...

According to the information found here, complete the following steps to disable aging for your sim. Press Ctrl+Shift+C to display the console window Enter "aging off"

I believe there is an item purchasable with aspiration called the ReNuYuSenso Orb that can change your aspirations, turn-ons, and turn-offs. It's purchasable with roughly 7,000 aspiration points. As with all aspiration rewards, try to use this item with a gold Aspiration level or you might end up with the Grilled Cheese aspiration. This item is only ...

As far as instantly? Not really, but some pieces of art tend to increase in value over time.

I don't know how complete it is, but there's quite a bit of it over on MediaFire. I found that by way of this forum thread which contains many individual links that might be of use. I found that link via this thread, which catalogues Sims sites that have bitten the dust and where their content is backed up/currently located. Unfortunately, by the very ...

Found a couple other people and have the same problem myself. Seems to go away if Apartment Life is removed. No other fix found yet.

You have to click on the child once they are in bed, but before they have fallen asleep (z's appear). There needs to be space by the bed for the teen/adult to sit while they are reading.

So far it seems there are no specific effects. The only thing is that the life aspiration includes something like "reach the last stage in the XXX career".

You can't download new scenarios for the Sims per se, but you can download pre created Families with goals and wants created by other players. Most of these are available directly on The Sims 2 website. Look under the Exchange section and specifically at Sims. Alternatively you can look at doing a Sims 2 Challenge. The concept is that there is a specific ...

Objects in The Sims 2 are assigned a "depreciation" value. It's been a while since I looked at the internal code of the game; but if I remember correctly: The "depreciation value" is between -100 and 100. An object with a 100 depreciation value will lose 100% of it's value over the period of one day (within the game). The average depreciation value is about ...

One of the problems is with your graphics card. The Radeon HD 4250 is a low end card, nowhere near powerful enough to handle a game like Sims 2 at high resolutions. AA and AF are pretty demanding on graphics cards. I would recommend disabling them or reducing them to the lowest setting to improve performance. As for your resolution problem, you can try the ...

Yes, it is possible to change you Sim's aspiration. There is an Aspiration reward called the ReNuYuSenso Orb available for 6,250 Aspiration points. It will allow you to change your Sim's aspiration as well as turn-ons and turn-offs. It only has 5 uses in it though. Do note that if you use it with your Aspiration level below gold, your primary aspiration ...

Use aphrodisiac meals to put the target in a good mood. Giving the meal to the target raises the relationship and they will want to eat it. Couches can become social machines. Trap a Sim on a couch. Block their one-tile exit. Now, any Sims seated with them will talk with them, at NO loss, raising their relationship, albeit slowly, AND filling the Social ...

I'm not really sure on this but I know that more activity reduces their stat bars quicker. Here is a duplicate question on yahoo answers but I don't think it's exactly what you are as it cheats to make them a household member. Must you starve them? I always found the best way was to make a swimming pool and remove the ladder or else place fireworks ...

I'm not too sure wherever you're talking about the sims 2 on pc or not but there might be cheats you could use to add the child back into your household if you see them again and maybe next time you can delete the social worker before the government take your baby.

The Sims wiki has a page comparing the two games, including a list of features that were available in The Sims 2 but disappeared entirely in The Sims 3, or that returned to The Sims 3 via expansion packs.
