No, it has been said in some law that I read through a link that modding the software to make it play without the CD/DVD is fine, as long as you paid legally for it.

Circumventing copy protecting may be illegal even if you own a copy. It is in some countries. It may also be illegal to just mod software. But again it depends on you national laws. There is a great myth that copyright laws are the same over the hole world. I am 100% that pirate bay would have been closed within a week in USA because of US laws. But in Sweden is very hard for them to touch them because our laws are different. But some rights you have in USA are more liberal when it comes to software then in Sweden. Small difference. So yes. IT MAY BE ILLEGAL. I am not saying it is. If you worried then just read what the law says. (And EULA. May wish to consult good legal advice if you really worried.)

In the USA, cracks aren't illegal, as is modifying software not illegal. I was saying for the USA.

That depends on the company, if their EULA says you may not modify the software in any way without permission, it doesn't matter what country you're in, the rules on the EULA apply to anyone who buys the product regardless of country.

If the EULA in the first place is considered valid. There is some debate about this and you may have to bring it up in court to settle the validity.

But i guess we do not need to debate laws any more. Let get back to The Sims 3. >_>

I'm not sure how I feel about this game yet. Your sort of stuck playing one family or else you lose all your goals and wishes. It's hard to be good at more than one thing. Trying to be a good gardener takes all my time. No time for romance however I did manage to get her pregnant and she has the twin/triplet thing so I'll see what I get. I think most of these goals will be multi generational.

Well mixing with the aging may solve some of that problem for you. I turned it off for the current game as the game before that i spent to much time micromanaging life fruit production. Form what i understand i got lucky in my first game to as i was able to get life fruit production up very quickly. For many players it takes many generations to get anywhere it seems.

Some prefer to just go with the flow however.

I'm trying to play without cheats or adjustments. It also takes forever for time to go by when they sleep and work. I just gave my pregnant woman a steel bladder so that should help while she works the fields of the farm.

Yeah some like it that way. It is almost like cheating to use the age adjustment. But i rather do that then have to micro aging.

I think i will make a game that is just go with the flow later on. Now i am still exploring most of the game. Also i always like to make a family of immortals. One that dabbles with Dark Powers >_>

Wait, so, I'm confused.  Does ambriosia make them eternally young or does it just reset their age?  I really would prefer it being the first choice since I could give it to a sim then leave them to their devices as they live forever rather than have to keep an eye on them.

To my understanding, it resets the bar on your current age. So if your about to have a birthday to become old, it will rest you down to the start of adulthood (Not young adult)

And life fruit can go beyond the bar. (Though not down to the next aging category.) You can add a lot of days in advance that way.
