Ok so when it took me a minute to figure this out also. whille you are playing a family you have to go to Options...Edit Neighborhood...then when it takes you to neighborhood view you have to click a little button that says change household... You will loose your wishes (this dosent bother me they always come back again). Then you get the option to play another lot or move another family. Took me a minute to figure out how to get both the family's i wanted to play in the same neighborhood.
HAHA!! good for you! it only took you a minute or so to figure this one out. for me, it took me like FOREVER......did i say that right?? let me say that again FOR-E-VER!!!!! actually, took 3 days to figure it out. BUT, theres a catch if you dont want to loose any relationship, job or whatsoever from your previous family you need to disable the Story Progression and/or Aging.
NOW, thats the part i dont understand or is it a bug or its just how it works?? somebody tell me. is there a certain time or place or whatever to disable those features if you want to play another household in the same neighborhood? because i truned off the story progression and aging when i played on another household (i want the "new" sim to be a perfect husband for my "old" sim household) and i saved my old sim before i entered EDIT TOWN MODE.
when i was playing my new sim (perfect husband) then had an interaction and conversation with my old sim (soon to be wife) it says there that the career of my old sim has been degraded and she even sell the theater herself! BUT she didnt aged! i was like what the hell!! i worked hard for that old sim to reach to wherever she was.
i didnt use a cheat or two when i was playing her! (i didnt know theres a cheat too so yeah) and then, i decided to use a cheat on my new sim so that he could marry my old sim so that i could control her career and life! its was really a big deal for me. I WORKED so hard for her money,fame and glory! she was at the top of the music career! she was a rockstar! holding autograph sessions! she was living on a mansion while receiving the profit from the theater she bought!
it was crap! so, disabling story progression is a flop? or theres a certain way/time on when to disable it on a certain household? GOD! somebody please answer me! and the story progression doesnt apply to the NPC in the town after all! but the aging does! uhgg!!! anyone knows? or anyone who can relate with this?? AAAHHH!!!!
