If you can`t find an essence, then you can just change in "playerRecord.xml" a name
of essence that you already have.
For example copy [applefruit type = "number"]99[/applefruit] and put it one more time
near it,then change word "applefruit" for another name of essence (you can find all
names in Program Files/MySims/SimsRevData/GameData)and dont forget about distance
100% Essence house:
Submitted by: Edward
If you want your home (or another's home) to be 100% of a type of essence, like food,
there are many ways. Obviously dont use ANY other colours from other essences otherwise
that ruins it. First of all, when in the build mode you can put actual essences (like
cake yum yum) onto a table or anywhere. I put a spider on a wall once! Another thing
is to paint your floors and wallpaper with an essence too. And the third way is to
put literal essences into the furniture WHILE your building it and paint them with
essences too. Now you can have a house made of food (or whatever type you wish).
I don't know if this has happened to anyone else, but every time I move in a Sim,
throw them out and move them back in again, I walk into their house/business and
find not one Sim, but two Sims. The second Sim is always a clone of the first. And
if I move in a Sim, chuck them out, move them back in and chuck them back out, the
clone of the Sim who got thrown out stays in town, even though they haven't got a
place to live anymore. Of course, the relationship with the clone feeds into the
relationship with the actual Sim, meaning that you can befriend them more quickly.
