Traveller + Ani's Apartment Mod

Is this true? http://anitmb.tumblr.com/post/174074641 ... ted-it-was

Might be a good idea to mention this in the documentation of these 2 mods.

Not that I'm aware of. Pretty sure Sarah has been using both for years without issue.

Sorry Chain, I meant to reply to this yesterday. Although I have had both mods installed at the same time, I don't think I've ever taken a sim traveling while an inactive household was under the control of Ani's Apartment Mod. I have found unusual things do happen when the Apartment Mod is left enabled on an inactive household so I generally disable it before switching to another family. :-)

Ah ok. I'll look into this. What other unusual things?

Hi Chain. I've been testing this over the last few weeks and didn't experience any major problems when travelling with my active household, whilst Ani's mod was controlling an inactive household. Neither were there any problems travelling with the 'Active Family' within Ani's mod with an active household.

As to the other 'unusual' things, here you go... ;-)

SETUP
Test household has three sims: Preston, Aiden and Rio.
Each sim has their own 'apartment' on the Lot.
The Lot Type is: Regular Residential
Aiden is set as the 'Active Family' within Ani's Apartment mod.

- - - - -

RESULTS

When the household being controlled by Ani's mod is ACTIVE:-

1. Four other sims in town are displaying the Roommate Icon on the Relationship Panel, even though they are not roommates.

2. Whilst Aiden was travelling, the Relationship Panel still showed the Roommate Icon for Rio but not for Preston.

3. When Aiden returned from travelling, his fridge was empty. It had food in it when he left.

4. Going into Edit Town Mode dissolves the 'Created Families' and their individual household funds. All sims on the Lot are merged back into one household with combined household funds again.

5. This is not directly related to Ani's mod but I thought I'd mention it anyway. The GoHere door locks on the apartment doors did not let the Repairman through. I originally had them set up to only allow each sim into their own apartment by their last name. After I added a 'Service Sims' caste filter to the allowed list, the repairman still couldn't get through. The moment I unlocked the door, he went straight in. EA door locks also wouldn't let the repairman through either, until his name was added to the allowed list or the door was unlocked.

When the household being controlled by Ani's mod is INACTIVE:-

1. Only Aiden receives the income from his job. His Map Tag correctly shows his Cash value. The other two don't receive their career income and their Map Tags show only $1,000 each, even though they both actually have over $5,000 each.

2. SP's 'Daily Fee Per Household Sim' is being deducted from Aiden's funds for all three sims.

3. Master Controller and Story Progression's 'Make Active' options only show up on the 'Active Family' sim (Aiden) within the apartment, not on the 'Inactive Family' sims (Preston & Rio).

4. Rio moved out of the Apartment Lot and in with Monika Morris under SP's direction. After this, MC's Focus interaction worked on him but he cannot be made active via MC. The option just doesn't show in the menu. Neither can he be made active via SP's menu or right-clicking with Selector. I made his new household active via Monika but clicking on Rio's portrait does nothing - I cannot control him in any way. Thinking he was still tied to Ani's Apartment Controller (which was still on the original Apartment Lot with Aiden & Preston living there) I tried clicking on it in order to release him. When I did, a notification appeared in the top right-hand corner of the screen: "Rio Marx removed from resident list of Rio Marx" but I still cannot click on Rio's portrait and control him. Tried an MC 'Reset Sim' on him but it had no effect. Not sure how to release him from this predicament now. Any ideas?

5. When my active sim was invited to Aiden's party, she and all the other guests were unable to enter his apartment due to the doors being locked by Go Here.
