Games[edit source]

How do I put both The Sims 2: Holiday Party Pack and The Sims 2: Happy Holiday Stuff in the same box which shows the games he appears in? Joey.eyeball (talk) 03:24, December 1, 2013 (UTC)

You can't; you have to choose one. They're basically the same things anyway, aren't they? Nikel Talk Vote! 03:41, December 2, 2013 (UTC)
I thought you could because its done here and here. Joey.eyeball (talk) 04:13, December 2, 2013 (UTC)
That's because they use different templates, and they use different parameters. For example, Starlight Shores uses {{NeighborhoodInfobox}}. It has game1 parameter, which is for the main game (to display the icon, categorize, and so on), and game2 parameter, for additional games that will not affect the template's display.
The infobox used for Sims don't have these parameters, so we could only input one game to the parameter. Nikel Talk Vote! 04:35, December 2, 2013 (UTC)
Oh, I see. Thats why whenever I changed the template, it said Santa Claus was from The Sims 2. Joey.eyeball (talk) 05:28, December 2, 2013 (UTC)

Zodiac sign[edit source]

Is his zodiac sign Cancer? It is the usual zodiac sign for a standard object NPC. I couldn't check in-game myself because I don't have Happy Holiday Stuff. -- C.Syde (talk | contribs) 04:07, July 20, 2014 (UTC)

He has no personality points and no zodiac sign. You can conclude that finding yourself, I suppose. Nikel Talk Vote! 06:37, August 5, 2014 (UTC)

No I can't. I don't have that expansion / stuff pack. So he doesn't have the Cancer zodiac sign even in-game? The game tends to show whatever zodiac sign matches the personality of the Sim, because the based on how the game works, all Sims "have" to have zodiac signs. -- C.Syde (talk | contribs) 06:39, August 5, 2014 (UTC)

No, I meant because he has no personality points nor zodiac sign, I suppose you'd conclude that his sign is Cancer. You've done it to other NPCs too. I only checked from SimPE though. Chances are his zodiac is assigned to Cancer in-game.
But no, it doesn't always mean Sims must have a zodiac sign, or at least to pets. I once made a pet selectable, but I didn't remember whether it was a regular wolf or a pack leader or maybe skunk. The pet's zodiac sign is nothing. Instead of a zodiac icon, it's a plain black square. This could probably happen to these super old object NPCs too. Nikel Talk Vote! 06:52, August 5, 2014 (UTC)
