So, for those who follow my BaCC, you know I was getting increasingly frustrated when customers weren't paying for makeovers at Yvette Tan's Re-Nu-Yu Salon. Well, a few days ago I sent a copy of the salon to Nemo so he could do some testing, and after a couple of days of trial and error, he figured out the correct protocol for one Sim running a salon:

- Click on the Ug-No-More (lol) Makeover Station and set price to the cheapest, ie Ridiculously Cheap.
- Click on the makeover chair again and make your Sim the stylist.
- When the sales meter appears above the customer's head, DO NOT PERFORM ANY SALES INTERACTIONS to help the sale along, as that causes your business Sim to no longer be the stylist, meaning no makeover for them to sell.
- While the customer is contemplating the chair, your Sim will stand next to it, and once the customer's sales bar is full, they will go straight to the chair and the Stylist will autonomously do the makeover. When they're finished, the money earned will float upwards and be added to the household's cash as it does at a venue business.

Yvette got four §25 makeovers, one right after the other, following this method. Sooo happy, now the salon is fun again!

- If you want to charge a higher price for makeovers, you could have another Sim do the selling, but not after the customer's sales bar is full, as that apparently breaks the sale for that makeover.
(Haven't tried this yet myself...)

Btw, if this info is already out there, I couldn't find it...

Anyway, a paying salon is a happy salon!


Happy Styling, Happy Simming!

Hi, I finally have another Mesa Vista update, and saying I'm glad/relieved to get this one finished is an understatement!

Welcome to the London household in Week 4 of Mesa Vista!

These two are best friend townies Sarah Cwik and Melissa Kalson. (Actually, I have no idea if they're best friends, but this made me think of how I was practically joined at the hip to my friends at that age. They're just taking it to the next level.)
And what do they have to do with Brandon London, you might be asking? Not much! At least, not beyond witnessing a pivotal moment in his life.
But... I'm getting ahead of myself again! It all began...
