    Also with the ear buds... if your Sims are in a club or group together, and one of them is listening to the earbuds, somehow all of them hear it and have their fun raised. You'll see the little music notes floating around besides all their heads even though the other ones don't have earbuds

    In one of the careers (possibly culinary), you get a chance card about reporting a colleague for stealing. If you choose the option of reporting, you get the result that the colleague goes berserk with you. Well, if you just happened to have that sim in a club with other colleagues, the one you reported will have a negative red friendship bar.

    I learned that building roofs isn't nearly as hard as it looks. I'm more of a CAS person.

    Am loving this thread, there's so many little details in sims that i wouldn't be surprised if there were 100 more people hadn't found yet

    I'm not sure if it's been mentioned, but when you have a bee hives from the seasons pack, they go dormant during the winter and little z's are coming out of it indicating they are sleeping.

    I tried giving my sim a bee box once but they attacked her and I deleted it. Bees are scary. I'm curious to give them another try. :D

    I did not know sims could scoot into a double sized bed if its against the wall.

    I also didn't know unemployed sims labeled themselves "stay-at-home mom" if they have a kid and you ask about their career! That's soo cute. :)

    What's some other little things you just found out?

    Can someone confirm if this still works in 2019? In my game I had a double bed against the wall with a window and only one Sim could get in the bed on the closet side to the door.

    It works but very very rare and random I cannot reproduce it on my sim but I remembered clicking the other side instead of the edge of the bed to nap

    Thanks! I'll have to see if I can reproduce it myself! ^^

    I didn't know that the Detective Active Career that came with Get To Work EP actually takes you to almost ANY random lot. The first day on the job I investigated a crime scene in Selvadora and the second day I went on Patrol... In Del Sol Valley xD

    Alien sims, even those not from space, get homesick if they watch the alien channel!

    I just discovered that sims can't marry their boss. And apparently being in the same level of the same career makes them each others boss.
    I have an engaged couple in the same household, both level 8 of the same track in the criminal career. Every time I have one try to marry the other I get a notification that it would be inappropriate to marry your boss. Luckily I didn't plan a whole big wedding.

    @treece01 wow! I just got one of my Sims to roll his first career and he got detective as the pick. Right away I had my eyes set on the chief. It's good to know. ^_^;

    It threw me, I never had that happen before. But when I think about it, whenever I have a couple in the same career they were always married before getting the job. I was kind of annoyed because I was trying to get the "marry your BFF" reward points. Oh well, it's my super sim couple and I plan on having them move on to other careers once they get level 10 any way. I guess they can wait to get married.

    - Noncommittal
    - Hates Children
    - Art Lover
    - Quick Learner

    Did you know Sims have a hidden skill for how well they play indvidual video games? They'll get collectively better the more hours they sink into one. Not to mention while they aren't playing they'll slowly start to get rusty when they're not playing it.

    Just like real life. I found this amusing. :p So having a high video game skill doesn't necessarily mean you'll win a tournament compared to playing a particular game your Sims plays often. If you have your sim constantly playing biblock they're more likely to win a tournament than a sims forever than they only played once.

    I just found out that if your child makes it to the top of the scouting career, then they only have to get to level 6 of an adult career for their parent to get "have a child or grandchild reach the top of their career" in the Successful Lineage aspiration.

    Thank god - I had no idea how I was going to achieve that before the parent died!

    (I also learned that the successful lineage aspiration is probably the laziest aspiration in the game...)

    In the Movie hangout pack there's a fairly in-depth system when your sims watch movies.

    Depending on your sims mood they may or may not like a movie. Example if they're sad, chances are they just won't like the movie.

    Also after watching a movie, your sim can declare to another sim that genre as their favorite (gives them a hidden trait for it), so they'll have a preferred movie genre they'll enjoy watching a lot more compared to others. Thought this was a nice feature as it makes sims feel like they have more likes and dislikes for things.

    To add to that a sims traits can also play a part in sims likely enjoying/disliking certain movies (mostly base game traits.)

    Childish Sims liking Comedy
    Bros/Athlethic sims liking Action movie
    Evil/Not-commital sims don't liek family-oriented movies (Dog's home journey)
    Foodies not liking horror films :D

    I discovered that with the fame "update", streaming live videogames in the TechGuru career not only gives you a ton of money but makes you a celebrity if you do it for enough time!
    Probably most of you know this already bahaha but still :smile:

    I learned that in the April 2019 patch the laptop is an unlockable. Now I have to use cheats EVERY STINKIN TIME.

    I didn't know sims get a hidden trait. I'll have to try it out next time I play.

    Sims can go to the toilet while holding a pet.

    And I'm sure I've said this before, but dragonfruit makes awesome fertiliser!

    Sims can sit at the dining room table while holding a pet too ^^
