Rounded corners[edit source]

If you look at the template code, you'll see that there is currently code in place for rounded corners on the template (like on {{Game}}, {{Object}}, etc), but for some reason that bit of code doesn't express itself and, thus, the corners remain boxy. Any idea why this could be? -- LostInRiverview talk ~ blog 19:09, January 24, 2014 (UTC)

Which part of the corner? It looks rounded to me, albeit slightly. Perhaps because the rounded corner is only 5px? Nikel Talk Vote! 18:32, January 25, 2014 (UTC)
It must be a Firefox issue, because the rounded corners do appear in Chrome. But, that's also confusing considering the code used to make rounded corners on {{Sim}} is the same as the code used to make the rounded corners on other templates - why do other templates appear rounded in Firefox but not {{Sim}}? -- LostInRiverview talk ~ blog 18:52, January 25, 2014 (UTC)
I've checked it with Firefox. It looks fine; it's just the same as Chrome, as well as other similar infoboxes. Nothing peculiar to me. Nikel Talk Vote! 11:00, January 27, 2014 (UTC)

Link to Fanon Neighborhoods[edit source]

Every time I try to add a link to my Fanon Neighborhood in the Sim Infobox Template for "neighbor", I get an interesting result. If I enter neighbor = [[Fanon:The Genesis Project|]], I get this:

The Genesis Project

[[Category:The Genesis Project Sims (fanon)]]

Is there a way to fix it? I don't know if this template is where it would be fixed, but I would like to find a way because I have been leaving the brackets off which leaves the text as expected, but I would like to have a link to the neighborhood page in my Sims' Infobox. Icemandeaf (talk) 06:08, April 17, 2014 (UTC)

This was done on purpose. You're not supposed to use a link for the neighbor parameter, and instead you should only add normal text. Fanon namespace, unlike the mainspace, will not link the neighborhood. This is because a lot of fanon Sims live in fanon neighborhoods that don't exist, so instead of bearing redlinks on many fanon Sims, linking is disabled.
I might be able to make a workaround though. Let's see if I can make it. Nikel Talk Vote! 13:14, April 17, 2014 (UTC)
Maybe you could try it now. Nikel Talk Vote! 13:40, April 17, 2014 (UTC)
I can understand that about many fanon Sims living in a fanon neighborhood that doesn't have a page. I was just asking because I have seen a few fanon writers who also had neighborhood pages do this as well because it does give the link, but it just seems weird to have the second line as well.
I just put the link back in for Fanon:Chris Fisher, but it still does the same thing. Icemandeaf (talk) 14:05, April 17, 2014 (UTC)
Try using just "The Genesis Project" for the neighbor parameter. Nikel Talk Vote! 14:10, April 17, 2014 (UTC)
That gives a red link. Icemandeaf (talk) 14:18, April 17, 2014 (UTC)
I've tested it and it looks fine. Nikel Talk Vote! 14:33, April 17, 2014 (UTC)
Oh, I read your last direction wrong. For some reason I was still thinking it needed brackets around it, but you said nothing about that. Oops. In any case, it does work now. Thanks. Icemandeaf (talk) 14:37, April 17, 2014 (UTC)

More Parameters?[edit source]

I realize that these don't come up for canon Sims, but I was wondering if there is a possibility to have a second aspiration and a reputation parameter since it comes up for my fanon Sims (in the Sims 2 if that is needed information)? Icemandeaf (talk) 20:28, April 27, 2014 (UTC)

Hmm, I guess no one ever thought of that before. I'll try to make them. Nikel Talk Vote! 09:07, April 29, 2014 (UTC)
Done! The reputation parameter should follow the reputation name as listed in Reputation#The Sims 2: Apartment Life table. Nikel Talk Vote! 09:38, April 29, 2014 (UTC)
Thank you! I just noticed that you had done this. I don't know why it took me so long. Ha! Icemandeaf (talk) 15:03, May 10, 2014 (UTC)

Career2?[edit source]

I don't have a use for this yet, but I was noticing that there was a paramater "career2". Does this mean that we could list a second career for a Sim? Like a retired elder who also has a part time job? The reason that I ask is because I tried it, just it seems that "career2" doesn't do a thing, unless I have been using it wrong (which is very possible). Icemandeaf (talk) 15:13, May 18, 2014 (UTC)

Bonus Trait[edit source]

I was thinking, perhaps we should add a "Bonus Trait" parameter to accommodate for the Sim4 template because of the new feature including the trait related to their aspiration.

Since The Sims 4 has featured and told this, I think we can add this up. ~~.ThePeculiarMe | (talk to me) | (my mistakes) 10:30, July 15, 2014 (UTC)
I guess we should wait and see how these traits actually work. IIRC, some gurus said that a Sim can get more traits than we expect, and Sims can fulfill as many aspirations as they can, unlike in The Sims 3. Nikel Talk Vote! 17:35, July 15, 2014 (UTC)

More Topics? Console Series?[edit source]

I was creating The SIms Console and The Sims Bustin Out series, but I've heard something is missing. Is it really the same as The Sims 1 PC? Wikierzz1122 (Let's talk it over) 01:27, August 15, 2014 (UTC)

Not the same, but it's a widely accepted fact that they're the console ports of the original The Sims PC game. --k6ka (talk | contribs) 01:50, August 15, 2014 (UTC)
I see that point. I've figured out how to use the Sims Console and Sims Bustin Out Simbio. Wikierzz1122 (Let's talk it over) 03:28, August 17, 2014 (UTC)
