    You know how at University you can get an opportunity to "Pull the Lever of Doom" on the Group Science Project and all the sims in the area (including yours) will pass out? Until recently I hadn't been playing with celebrities turned on, but I have it on now, and I discovered that if your sim is a celebrity, they can be publicly disgraced for passing out in public if they do this.

    Well, actually they can be publicly disgraced for pretty much EVERYTHING (even if they hadn't done what they are being accused of doing). This happens frequently, and I find it sooo annoying... The "celebrity system" is one of the few things that is better in The Sims 4 than The Sims 3 in my opinion, and I only insisted in making my Sims celebrities because I wanted one of them to get the Celebrity Awards.
    But I guess this opportunity is connected to one of the social groups, am I right? One of my Sims had a degree in Science and never received this opportunity.

    I didn't know until just recently that children of celebrities, who gain celebrity themselves when they age up to child, can also be disgraced. The wife/mother of my current household is a four star celebrity master acrobat, and the husband father is a 1 star celebrity. When their twins aged up to child, they became two star celebrities. Soon after they moved to a new town, their son was disgraced for peeing his pants in public, even though he hadn't actually been out in public yet.

    Go to City Hall and sue them for Slander ... B)
    You'll probably win, and at least get some money out of it.

    Happy Simming!

    Can children do that? I do it when adults get disgraced with false accusations.

    If you use NRAAS mods you can disable some of those false accusations under General Options > Options: Friendships > Options: Celebrity.

    Just Found This Out:
    You can Magically Upgrade the Aurora Wardrobe (possibly other wardrobes as well). You have to be a witch but the Portal that has a similar story to Narnia.
    You can also WooHoo in the full sized wardrobes.

    This could be a mod, but I'm not sure. Today, I had my sim call in fake sick to work because she was very unhappy and I didn't want her performance to suffer a ton because of it. Later that day, I got a notification saying that a co-worker ratted my sim out! :astonished: She lost relationship points with her boss. :lol:

    Teens can AFAIK.

    I did´t know, that adult sims can use the seesaw! I did know, that they can use the swings, and teens can hang out on the slide.

    Seesaws are just a routing fail to happen, so I normally don´t bother with them, but my sim autonomously decided to have some fun with them on a public lot.

    Just assume that every edit I make is because of typos.

    Might be connected to the Nerd social group, I'm not sure. It doesn't seem to happen that often.

    Another thing I just discovered, BTW (since I didn't have Seasons until now) is that sims with the Evil trait will make an evil laugh when there's a thunderclap.

    It's completely up to you how often you get that. Completely charge the Group Science Project with one of the colors until the beam of light emerges at the top (you can see your progress by the progress of the light bars on the upper part of the device), and then you are allowed to "pull the lever of doom". Blue yields the "power nap", red greatly increases the chance of everyone around the structure to streak, and green is the jackpot: double skill gains for six hours. You can power level lots of skills by using the structure. It's one of the easier ways to get your sims' university performance up.

    There's another mode, but that requires you to equally charge the structure with every color (keep track how the eight light segments progress). After activation, you can pull the lever to get a shower of gems.

    Regarding things I didn't know, my mind is blank at the moment, although there are probably still quite a few things I don't know.

    That much is true, but an actual Opportunity sometimes comes up to pull the lever (for extra credit, I think). And you don't control that.

    Ah, that's cool. I guess I misunderstood that. Aren't the social group opportunities in a different tab than the normal ones you get during class?
