Wording regarding "unplayable" sims[edit source]


I've had some difficulty finding exactly the wording I should use regaring "unplayable" sims. I agree that unplayable is maybe not the best word to use when referring to NPCs, Townies or foreign residents in their articles. I will reword my template.

Midnight Hollow[edit source]

Hi EpicJoyBoy,

I added some headshots of Sims from Midnight Hollow yesterday and today, especially the Sims who live alone (see the page Special:NewFiles). I hope you spare a little of your work. ;)

Nomination for Rollback[edit source]

I've nominated you for rollback rights. Please visit this page and accept or decline the nomination. Thank you! --Frostwalker Talk to me! 09:38, October 15, 2013 (UTC)

Hey, thanks for accepting the nomination. Meanwhile, I apologize for saying that you have been active in this wiki for nearly month, because I thought you started editing on September 2013, not 2012. However, good luck with the nominations, and I hope the bureaucrats will grant it soon. --Frostwalker Talk to me! 10:21, October 15, 2013 (UTC)
Your nomination has been approved. Congrats! -- LostInRiverview talk ~ blog 17:13, October 15, 2013 (UTC)

Hi, I'd like to thank you for your great contributions here. :) You've done a great job improving those Sim articles, as well as providing the headshots with black blackground. And to my personal liking, you even named the headshots in the correct format ([[File:Firstname Lastname.png]], instead of [[File:FirstnameLastinitial.png]] and so on). I'd like to give you an award for you to display in your userpage, if you'd like to. Again, thanks! Nikel Talk Vote! 12:50, October 19, 2013 (UTC)

Plumbot maker[edit source]

Hi, EpicJoyBoy. Will you do me a favor, please? I'm wondering if you could tell me what's the self-employed career for Bot Building skill is called. Nikel Talk Vote! 16:18, October 26, 2013 (UTC)

It's called "Self-Employed Bot Builder" in game, but it's probably better to just shorten it to "Bot Builder." The "Self-Employed" part would be redundant anyway, though. EpicJoyBoy (My talk page!) 23:31, October 26, 2013 (UTC)
Woah, that would be the ugliest career name in the history of Sims. Thank you so much, that's very helpful! :) Nikel Talk Vote! 03:28, October 27, 2013 (UTC)

Plumbot infobox[edit source]

I'd like to help you design an infobox for Plumbot, but I have no idea what makes them really different from Sims. In the meantime, you could use {{Sim3}} for the Plumbots.

What I know is that their traits are different. I could tweak the {{Sim}} template, add parameters for trait chips, and provide the trait chips icons. What do you think? Is there any more that needs to be considered? Nikel Talk Vote! 04:13, October 27, 2013 (UTC)

Their traits are different, yes. I like to think that they are similar to pets, since they are different compared to a normal Sim. Both (usually) has an owner, has different trait lists from a normal Sim, and needs to be taken care of. Adding parameters for trait chips should suffice but I'd like to have Plumbot quality and Owner parameters onto the infobox as well.
To be honest, I haven't created any Plumbot articles in the first place since I'm not sure if I should use {{Sim3}} for Plumbots or create a new infobox entirely. EpicJoyBoy (My talk page!) 08:28, October 27, 2013 (UTC)
For trait chips, we could use the parameter trait1 to trait7. I've made so that if the life state is Plumbot, then the "Traits" on the infobox will change to "Trait chips".
As for owner and plumbot quality, I don't know. Is there legitimately owner and plumbot quality in the game? If yes, then I'll create new parameters for those in the {{Sim}} template, for use in {{Sim3}}. That's much more efficient than creating a whole new infobox template. Maybe if I could see how the plumbot's info is retained in the game, I could understand more. Nikel Talk Vote! 08:41, October 27, 2013 (UTC)
Plumbot quality exists in-game. I just realized we don't really need the owner parameter since the roommates parameter should do the trick for the most part. What I was thinking is that any human Sims living with the plumbot is automatically owners/creators of them. EpicJoyBoy (My talk page!) 09:17, October 27, 2013 (UTC)
Ah, I see. I agree we could just use the household and roommates parameters for the assumed owners. What do you think about this? Nikel Talk Vote! 10:16, October 27, 2013 (UTC)
Looking good. I suppose I'll be using this template for Plumbots, then. EpicJoyBoy (My talk page!) 00:31, October 28, 2013 (UTC)
Any feedback would be appreciated. I wonder if it needs anything else? Perhaps the quality parameter is too crude? Nikel Talk Vote! 10:23, October 28, 2013 (UTC)
To be honest, I don't think I need the quality parameter. I found out that pre-made Plumbots has a randomized quality meter, which means their quality is randomized for every game, so I never got it into use. I don't think the parameter is going to get any use either considering that the Plumbot's quality is randomized. EpicJoyBoy (My talk page!) 03:39, October 29, 2013 (UTC)
Ah, I see. Thank you very much for the clarification. I'll remove the parameter then. Nikel Talk Vote! 03:48, October 29, 2013 (UTC)

Use of Warning feature[edit source]

Hello. I am contacting you to make you aware of a recent decision that was made by the administrators, to allow rollbackers to use the {{Warning}} template. Please read this blog for more information on this decision and how it affects you. If you have any questions regarding this, please contact me or another administrator. Thanks! -- LostInRiverview talk ~ blog 01:23, November 5, 2013 (UTC)

Small mistake[edit source]

On your userpage, you made small mistake with one of userboxes, which says that you're fan of Isla Paradiso. Here is the correct code: {{Fan islaparadiso}}. :) Mate1234 (Chatterbox...) 10:04, November 17, 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, it was my bad. I renamed it but forgot to check who used it. --Frostwalker Talk - Read 10:13, November 17, 2013 (UTC)

Sims page Work[edit source]

Hi EpicJoyBoy! I know you saw me making pages of Sims of Roaring Heights (I think). So, do you still planing making Sim pages? I'm almost finish at making pages of Townies, so that you can now only making pages of Sims and Plumbots of Oasis Landing. And making a little (well, not little) help with you. :)

By the way, what do you think of my edits of Roaring Heights Sims? Are they okay enough? ThePeculiarMe | (talk to me) 13:11, May 25, 2014 (UTC)

I'm really unsure though. I've pretty much lost my interest and don't feel like playing The Sims right now, so I won't be doing the remaining townies and the plumbot articles anytime soon. I might do it later when I got the motivation to do so though. :P
BTW, I see that you do have Into the Future, so you might want to consider creating the remaining articles if you want to. I already have all the headshots in Oasis Landing uploaded though, you could use them as well.
And yes, you did a pretty good job at creating Roaring Heights sims articles. I do see some minor mistakes like the lack of SkillTable2 or making the title in bold in earlier articles though, but I do see you end up correcting these in later articles. Thanks anyway! :D EpicJoyBoy (My talk page!) 16:09, May 26, 2014 (UTC)
Well, I do have TS3:ITF and creating the pages of the Plumbots, but I uninstall it because (1.) I have graphical issues and my computer hasn't even upgraded yet, (2.) It took me for 1-2 hours go load an another neighborhood, and (3.) well, that's about it. However, I'll install it once I finished creating pages of the Fraternities, Sororities, and Dormitories of TS3:U and adding the Chairs of TS3.
And Great! Thanks for appreciating me. :) And almost of the children in Roaring Heights don't have any skills. So I just added their friends in the article so that it doesn't look like a stub. :| ThePeculiarMe | (talk to me) 02:30, May 27, 2014 (UTC)
