Itlandm's Sims

Jul. 6th, 2015 12:20 am Sims 3: Weird circus music following my sim

I've run into this a few times, and in the past I have solved it by quitting without saving and starting from before the weirdness began. But this time I had already saved the game, so I decided to find some other way to solve it.
This is a bug where for some unknown reason there starts to play an irritating circus type music, I believe it is one used in the Showtime performances, although I suppose it could be others if you don't have that expansion. It is not the ghost hunter music that sometimes keeps playing all night long in a place it shouldn't, or the computer game music that also sometimes plays at times and places where it shouldn't be. Unlike these, this is tied to one particular family member and follows her wherever she goes. If you zoom in close, the music gets stronger, like she is a walking stereo.

I solved it by sending her to University and back. For those who don't have that expansion, I would guess that the tourist destinations would do, and probably the city of the future. Perhaps you can also solve it by moving to another house, certainly to another neighborhood (but that will wipe all your relationship outside the household). Resetsim and Fixall (from Awesomemod) did not work though.

Posting this in case some unlucky soul doesn't find it out on their own. ^_^

Solve it by turning off the sound on your computer :)

It is actually enough to turn off sound effects. But I found the game less fun, plus it was hard to notice when the phone was ringing or some other things happening where I was not looking.

Tal vez es tarde, pero me pasó hace apenas 10 minutos.

Sin ninguna razón, comenzó a sonar música de circo; no era la música de la misión cazafantasmas, era música cómica o de malavares o algo así.

Lo solucioné con NRAAS mastercontroller:

Primero, ubicar al sim del que proviene la música (Lo hice mandando a cada sim a una habitación con las paredes arriba para aislar el sonido).

Ahora, haz click en el sim del problema, click en NRAAS, mastercontroller, interacciones avanzadas, reiniciar sim.


Espero le sirva a alguien mas que aún juegue Sims 3.


Maybe it's late, but it happened to me just 10 minutes ago.

Without any reason, circus music began to sound; it was not the music of the ghost-hunter mission, it was comic or wavy music or something like that.

I solved it with NRAAS mastercontroller:

First, locate the sim from which the music comes (I did it by sending each sim to a room with the walls up to isolate the sound).

Now, click on the sim of the problem, click on NRAAS, mastercontroller, advanced interactions, restart sim.


I hope it serves someone else who still plays Sims 3.

Re: Solution

Thank you, this sounds like a good idea for those who have NRAAS Mastercontroller. And they should have, it is a good tool.
