Re: Objects not giving emotional aura

★★ Guide

The Milton Word Processor is the only aura object my current Sims family owns, but enabling it still doesn't do anything.

I've ask Grant about this and he said that you should not need to use it for it to work but only the most powerful one does. So if you have more than one object, you need to disable the rest.

In my own experience it sometimes takes a moment to kick in too.

I'm not saying that there can't be anything bugged. It IS on the list

Auras not working?

★★★ Apprentice

Please see this screenshot for my problem.

 

This is my gym. It's on the opposite corner of a 50x50 lot from my "Inspiration" room (designed for writing, painting, music etc.), which contains all the items with the "Inspired" emotional aura (I have a pretty full collection of unlocked items.) In the screenshot, you can see the gym is equipped with multiple items with the "Energizing" emotional aura - crystals, unlocked lighting parts, a mirror, a couple of awards, even the stereo - and yet my sim still shows an "Inspired" decoration +2 effect. All items have auras enabled. She also took a Brisk Shower and Viewed one of the awards beforehand, giving +2 Energized in total. The nearest competing auras are a few "Playful" items in the reception area in the middle of the house.

 

Can someone please explain how this is happening?

All auras work - if your sim can see them.

Put inspiring decor behind a wall.

Did you even read my post?

 

The Inspired items are on the other corner of a 50x50 lot. There are at least two walls between my sim and the room that contains them. Plus there are plenty of Energized items within her view.

 

I've experimented with disabling items in the other room, and there seems to be a threshhold at which point the Energized decor in the room she's in suddenly kicks in.

 

However this doesn't explain why the numerous Energized items in the same room are being cancelled out by items in a distant room.

 

The latest mystery is this (screenshot). I had disabled all Confident decor, put all my dead alien collection in household storage, and I was still getting this. Turns out it was The Monolith (level 8 Astronaut award) that was in my front garden. When I disabled it, I suddenly got my Energized auras in the gym. This is a 50x50 lot, the Monolith is at least 35 squares away, with two walls in between.

 

I'd like a dev answer on this if possible, it's highly frustrating.

I'd like to add that sometimes I notice two people in the same room (e.g. mother playing with daughter at doll house) who are getting different emotional auras from decor. I'll screenshot it if I notice it again.

 

EDIT: screenshots with descriptions.

I've had individual rooms lose their auras and they don't work again until I leave and revisit the lot

In my game it happens too. Only they are with other objects. Anyway, there's more of an object that does not affect the mood of the sims.

Computer Hard Drive doesn't give emotional aura.

★★★ Novice

I'm assuming it's meant to give a "Focused" aura, but it does nothing at all either from enabling the aura or viewing the object. Other objects work, so it's not universal, just that one.
