Lol, Sita, Greg catches on very slowly sometimes...

I'm sure he'll have Pets and Seasons both by July.

I found the camera hack as listed in the "Necessary Hack" thread...

You can get that from Mod the Sims 2 http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=30492&highlight=neighbourhood+camera

There are other more complex ones there too, look in the global hacks part of the forum. I like this cos it works in all versions and doesn't mess with anything else.



Edit: Fixed the link. --Greg


This is another one I found by Gunmod http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=97642

Aha! Thanks, Rose!

I installed GunMod's version. It overwrites several of the cameras in My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Cameras while Snappledud's mod only fixes the neighborhood view.

I need GunMod's version for shooting stories. smile

GunMod's hack has two really important features for storytelling: It slows down the rate that the camera moves and zooms so you have more precise control, and it enables a much wider range of camera motion and zooms.

Well, that and the fact that I have lots built right on the edge of some neighborhoods so I can't even get to them without it.

The trick to MTS2 is to hit your back button and try again. I usually get the download within 5 tries.

I can now, occasionally. But for the last several days I couldn't dl anything at all.
Now it takes me - a LOT more than 5 tries. I just leave the page open and go back and try again whenever I think of it.

Of course that means I can't have a major downloading spree there, and it's a pain cos many of the dls have several files on one page.

I wish he'd get his bleeping server sorted.

Have you ever tried Quark Express? I don't even know what it is, but MTS2 advertises for it a lot.

Isn't that some kind of cheese?

No, I use Winzip and WinRAR.

I thought you had to be a donator to use Quark Express. GetRight does well enough for me, so I never bothered with it.
