Sooo, I've been playing Pleasantview rotationally and I've been doing a more wants based playthrough as Pleasantsims has done. It's a playstyle that seemed like fun and I never done it before. I always get stuck in trying to make every sim perfect in school/work/lifetime aspiration, so it's a nice change to just play the family through and see what they actually want. The only thing I've noticed playing this way is almost all the teens NEVER want to do their homework which means they NEVER get scholarships for grades, or get daily messages about slipping grades and failing. I'm just now starting to send the teens off to college and I don't want them to all be drop-outs. They also NEVER want to earn skill points or do anything improving wise. A lot of my teen sims just want to earn money or buy stuff lol.
I like the idea of wants based playthrough but, I don't know I might have to take the control sometimes or be less strict with it.
Anyone else play this way? And what is your experience?
It also doesn't help that somehow I had three sets of twins born in the neighborhood and it's been hectic taking care of everyone lol.
A lot of my sims parents have the want for their teens to be overachievers, so I use that to incentivize the parents to help their teens with homework.
