Paparazzi filter possibly not working

Post by Orudeon » July 2nd, 2018, 12:43 pm

The most likely scenario is that I misconfigured the mod, but I managed to snap this image: https://i.imgur.com/895db9p.png
<a class="wiki_link_ext" href="https://i.imgur.com/6yXgTW5.png" rel="nofollow">https://i.imgur.com/6yXgTW5.png</a> this is the list of sims denied access
I am unsure how to fix it via configuring or if it's a mod issue.

It's difficult for me to see what's happening behind the filter tooltip display there, but is this gate on a home lot? Role Sims (and Service) will not obey the filters on a home lot when they think they are meant to be inside. There is also a toggle on Global Door Options for Role Sims though the Paparazzi are a special case and might not respond as expected to that one either (and I'm sure you don't want to accidentally lock cashiers and bartenders out of their intended work stations).

Chain will have to comment, but I'm not sure the Paparazzi can be locked out this way if that was the goal.

The role toggle is only for Sims with a role object so it shouldn't be that. Is the gate facing the right way? Arrows pointing in to the enclosed area?

Hi igazor and chain! Some context to the image, that sim seems capable of walking in and out of my home lot gates on a whim. The exterior doors are locked in the same way but it's apparently not working. I just changed the gate to point inward, maybe that'll fix it? The other doors aren't blocking either, do those need to point in too?

Looks like they're still getting through the gate when I swap its facing.

The only thing that seems to work is specifying the paparazzi sims as not able to enter, the filter it self still seems to not work even though i tried toggling the filter. I don't know what else to try

Perhaps it's broken. I'll have a look.

I think I figured out how to fix it, at least temporarily. It seems like I have to toggle it, which sometimes gets it working, then double-check with 'List sims denied access'. It also seems like every time I load up the save file (or every time I boot up the game, not sure) the list of sims denied is reset.

Make sure you have the latest version. Issues related to that were fixed. The clearing is normal but it should repopulate after the game runs a bit. It has been noted to be incompatible with relativity pause on load function as well as awesome's.
