Doorbells

Am I doing something wrong or are there no doorbells? I keep seeing Sims at my door and i have no idea how long they have been standing there.

    There are no doorbells. Be glad they are just standing there. Some folks have had the neighbors just walking in and out at leisure.

    glad they arent just walking in, but i never hear a knock. Maybe cause i have the radio on? They should make it louder

    There should be a doorbell. It's so much easier to hear than the knock.

    EA could not implement doorbells due to engine limitations.

    I heard they had doorbells but a suit at EA has doorbell phobia.

    I heard they were cut for Loading Error 102 Addiction to Milk, Orange Juice & Computers.

    Actually... as often as neighbors visit (say within the next 4 minutes of asking them to Leave) doorbells might actually drive me INSANE.

    Why would anyone want it to be easier to hear the 200 times per day a sim is at their door?

    Turn the front door back/front... Neighbors are walking in because the outside of the door is on the inside.

    The knock at the door is way too quiet. I believe that that sound, like the radio music, is muted by walls, too.

    I really want to know why they removed doorbells. It's great you can knock on doors, but who on earth can hear that when they are somewhere at the back portion of the house?

    I would only support the addition of a doorbell if it sounded like the firey screams of the last sim who rang my doorbell.

    I miss doorbells. I especially loved having my sims upgrade their doorbells *le sigh* I would like that back!! My sims have plenty of standard upgrade parts just waiting for the moment...

    No doorbells It's bizarre, my simmies sister who he has a really good relationship with just stands there, whereas his childhood friends just wander in.

    Hated doorbells in game, especially when sims rang it at nite and my sims were trying to sleep

    Knocking on the door is better as you just pretend you did not hear it. Nothing worse in life having unexpected visitors if you have a doorbell then they know you heard it, a knock on the door you can say you did not hear lol

    how about adding doorbells as something that can be bought of the buy/build list, or add it so a sim with handiness around lvl 5 or so can add it to the door. they way those of us that want a door bell can have them, and simmers that don't want them don't have to install them on their doors.

    Sometimes I just let the neighbors stand in front of the door without letting them in. LOL

    I'll try that. If this is true, you are my new favorite person, @runesong !

    Brilliant! That's something Id like to see. Plus anytime a Sim comes knocking I never hear it lol!

    If they release a Showtime-like XP, there'll be paparazzi ringing the doorbell day and night.

    If that becomes the case, I'd like it if we had the option to click the door from the inside and get two options:

    -Buzz Them In
    -Release the Hounds!

    ...and then a pack of attack dogs chase them off the lot. Maybe trotting back with a pair of pants in their jaws. I'd buy a Pets XP just for that...
