    I dunno, the title says *including BV* but now that you said that, maybe it's a typo. No biggie for me if it is, since I can't get in to hop on the train anyway [​IMG]

    this from a blog that explains what is up with trains:

    Movers and Shakers
    Posted in Uncategorized, City Merge by Parizad on the February 27th, 2008 Edit This
    Although we’ve started merging some cities in, we’re not done with the moves. Let me repeat that. We’re not done with the moves!

    Okay, so here’s the ditty: We don’t know how many moves we’re going to do before we’re finished with all of the merges. There will be at least one more move. So if you’ve set your set to move and want to cancel, please do so immediately. As for the opposite, if you’ve wanted to move, please set your Sim to do so immediately!

    Betaville residence can move now! It is important to note that if your sim moves, they will take their objects with them, but not their simoleans or their houses. Important: If you move the head of the household to EA-Land, you will lose the property in BV. It will not go to the next family member.

    When you move a family member (not the head of household), they will arrive with a birthday cake and the clothes on their back. Only the head of the household will come with all objects.

    There is no Free Will in EA-Land!

    Budda-budda-budda, that’s all folks! Keep an ear out for the next bullet train. Choo choo!

    Hope this helps.

    Hmm, OK....guess I will just have to hope the updater issue is resolved so I can finish patching and set the H of H to move to EAL from BV. Lee hasn't posted in a while, if he's around can you poke him over to the Tech forums? I got a batch of special brownies up for grabs I've been able to make while waiting for things to patch!

    Think the blog post about it said they are scheduling 2 -4 hours (which probably means 6. hehe)...If TC3 moves well, then the next day they do EA-Land.

    Scheduled for next week. Then more merges week after that.

    <blockquote>
    Monday, March 3, 2008 at 8:00 A.M. PST. Test Center 3 will go offline for a data center migration. We expect the down to be between 2-4 hours.
    Tuesday, March 4, 2008 at 8:00 A.M. PST. EA-Land will go offline for a data center migration. This will happen only if the data migration for Test Center 3 is okay. </blockquote>

    FWIW, my BV sims were not deleted when I left, and I was gone a year or more. I don't think BV undergoes the same DADDI inactivity wipes as the other cities get, as I know several people who left and came back who got to keep their BV families even though all other sims on the account were gone bye-bye.

    oh so no more bv correct? will there still be 4 sims you can make or no?

    BV sims will be moved/merged to EA-Land. At this point their objects will be included as seen on the tso-e blog. Houses are still iffy, I believe. Betaville will, like all of the other cities, become a part of EA-Land. The Free Will aspect will be removed from moving/merging avatars. At this point you will only be able to play one at a time. Eventually we will have the option to play multiple sims on the same account.

    In summary, BV avatars will become the same as any other, and are included in the total number of sims we can have in EA-L (8).

  26. I have one quick question, i set my oldest sim from BF to move to EA-land. Does that mean i will lose my home? Should i cancel this move &amp; allow the merge to take place naturally?

    Yes, its always been said that bullet trains are WITHOUT LOTS. I'm not sure at this late stage if it's still possible to cancel the move since they were already supposed to have been started, but it's worth a shot. [​IMG]
     
  29. whew! quick call ! [​IMG] Cancelled the move, thank you for replying so quickly; i was a tad confused. [​IMG] Sometimes these threads leave me second guessing about what it is i am supposed to do.


    Again thank you, i have cancelled the move and hope my simmy makes the next merge intact and with her prized home.

    I noticed that also. They are now fixing a huge error we have been having for a long time. Maybe that has something to do with it?

    Sims2 Guest

    so if bv is being merged to ea land and we have 8 slots in ea land.

    any bv sims will take place of any sims we may have already created in the ea

    land in 8 slots?

    because bv sims do not get deleted from what i read in one of the posts above.

    thanks

    Is it to late to set the move when EALand comes back up?
     
  36. Guest

    Guest Guest

    The BV sims are already showing in EA Land log in screen. That is where you put in for the move.
     
  37. donnallg

    donnallg Guest

    Yes but EALand is down so it doesn't give an option to move them there.

    I was just wondering if it's to late to set them up to move.
     
  38. Guest

    Guest Guest

    No harm in trying, since the train is stuck at the station. I have put in for moves, since it was delayed. Hopefully my sims make it.

    if you were answering my question aslo not sure*

    i just recently came back to tso. i never could get in bv to schedule any moves*

    always got internal error- the reason i wanted to know was if bv sims were

    coming to ea land slots i would have to clear some slots .

    I'm in TC3 skilling. Seems to be several houses full of sims doing the same thing, so some people waiting can come skill here in the city with us [​IMG]

    Skilling is boring, but at least you'd be doing *something* with your sim to calm the withdrawl whilst tapping your finger on the desk and/or posting here? [​IMG]

    LOL NOT! Just not fond of much idle time so it's common practice for me to be doing 2 or 3 things at once. ATM, it is watching "Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man" skilling in TC3, and posting here. If things slow down here I might replace this with pogo for a bit until the hubby gets back from the neighbors house (love being married to a techie-geek hubby that used to build computers but hate it when the neighbors come by needing help 'for a minute' that lasts 4 hours LOL).

    So who's moving their BV sims?

    Are you moving all of them or a few of them?
