The Stanford Prison Experiment is no more :(
I've tried and I've tried, and the problem is unfixable. Y'see, ever since I patched a while ago the prison household has become kind of inaccessible. Because there were like eleven Sims in a household I had to use a mod to make it work, but having to take out that mod and put it back in again meant the coding to allow more than eight Sims per household was gone for a while, which fucked things up rather.
When I load the game there are no thumbnails at all, meaning I can't control any of the Sims, and when I try to split or evict the household the game shuts down. I thought if I tried it on my new compizzle it might be okay, but now instead of shutting down the game just 'processes' FOREVAR. I don't have a finished copy of the prison saved, so there's no way to fix things (and I'm not about to build it all over again).
Apologies to all. I have other stories you can read if it makes you feel any better :)
