Interesting! Now I see what Morning Monday was talking about when she mentioned that sims move their head during pause. Originally that totally creeped me out that sims would move once I've paused. But I didn't realize how awesome it can be.
While Sims are hugging, I can turn on move objects, grab them, hold down alt to turn off the grid, and reposition them. Their arms move naturally, their eyes and their heads even reposition themselves. Very nifty!
They still make some uber creepy faces. Sometimes if I reposition them weirdly, their eyes roll up into their heads. And there isn't a way to make sims taller outside of aging them up.
Oh, and there isn't a reliable way to age sims down. That's a tip to anyone wanting to use TS3 to tell a story. I used Awesomemod's edit sim feature to age a couple of sims down, then had to reset sim 3 times until they looked normal. Pescado does warn that he won't offer support for it.
The other semi-nice part to not having memories is that there is less to screw up. I can copy and replace sims all I want so far as I know. I can have two of the same sims in a neighborhood or more accurately save file.
Another weird thing I've noticed while trying to get things set up, the gap between child and teen is huge! Especially since I don't know of a way to stretch the skeleton. Teens look more like adults.
Anyway, I won't show any of the test shots. I'm still working on the story, so I don't know where it will go or if I'll need those shots. So I'll just leave off with this one as a tribute to Laura because of course the first thing I did was make two sims hold hands.
