A way to identify a predestined hobby[edit source]

I have honestly no idea how to implement it, but I was wondering if there could be a way to identify a predestined hobby on this table. I would like to have that information for my fanons. Icemandeaf (talk) 15:08, May 10, 2014 (UTC)

You could just write "Predestined" somewhere... Also, the predestined hobby for a Sim can be found using the FFS Lot Debugger, via "Info.../One True Hobby". The Predestined Hobby should be greyed out. --k6ka (talk | contribs) 15:39, May 10, 2014 (UTC)
Do you mean within this template? Where would I write predestined? Maybe something like this?
|filmandliterature = 2
|sports            = 5 | predestined
|fitness           = 3
And how would that show up? Would it make that row grayed out to signify that it is the predesignated hobby? Icemandeaf (talk) 16:06, May 10, 2014 (UTC)
No, I was talking about how to find the predestined hobby in-game. Making a parameter for "Predestined" hobby will require some template-editing. I'll need to copy the template into one of my sandboxes and experiment with it. Or you could always ask Lab or someone else that knows how to work with things like this. --k6ka (talk | contribs) 16:14, May 10, 2014 (UTC)
Now that makes sense. :-) I figured it would take some template-editing, but I just needed to get some ideas of how it should work before trying to do any editing. I think I have some ideas now, so I am going to some sandboxing as well. Icemandeaf (talk) 16:29, May 10, 2014 (UTC)
I was able to figure it out. I just added a predestined parameter that uses one of the names of the hobbies. Thanks for your help (being a sounding board). ;-) Icemandeaf (talk) 17:13, May 10, 2014 (UTC)
