September 24 - Everyone ready for the Friday Highlight? It's ready for you here!

I Find It Frustrating When My Sims …

Thought this might be fun. I'll start us off.

I find it frustrating when my Sims whine over the holiday they found awful, even though they failed to fulfill the commands in their queue. :open_mouth:

Please, feel free to add your frustrating moments. This could be a hoot. ;)

    I find it frustrating when my sim does not follow my command....

    Nothing more frustrating when I tell the sim to make some food and they are tired. So instead of making food, they head to bed anyway, then get up and walk all the way back to the kitchen to do what I asked them to do in the first place UGH!!!

    ... Keep grabbing glasses of water or wanting to just "Troll teh forums".

    (Not all of them are that bad about that and no, I don't let them do either too much).

    at l;east your sim stayed awake while it cooked . not my legacy but just in regular play save one of mine started dinner then took a nap and burned to death even though she woke up and saw the fire.

    ...when they go to bed with their bladder need in the yellow. Bathroom first, then sleep. :D

    ...when they insist on going up another floor in the house for something there even though I wanted them to stay on the floor they were on; I never knew it would become such a problem when I started living in multi-floor houses more often.

    ...when they refuse to cancel the action even if I've clicked to cancel it already twice.

    Without fail whenever a sim gets in a playful mood on Winterfest they will add a prank present to the pile of presents. Even if they live alone. They are pranking themselves? Seems like they could have put more thought into it.

    I think that's funny, myself. I've had brothers prank each other and their reaction to the 'pile of poo' gift is quite comical. Note that I have four teenagers in one household. Three boys and a girl. She got the prank gift once. Her expression was priceless. Wish I'd thought to snap a picture.

    When their enemies hit them up to say they heard their friends with someone, and when you invite someone to a lot and they disappear.

    When they get out of bed to pass out on the floor or when they get off the toilet to pee themselves (seriously happened to me once).
    I can understand the first one cause sleep deprivation makes you crazy, but what's the last one's excuse?

    Oof, nothing makes my blood boil like a sim walking from one side of their massive house to the other side and still doing the thing I cancelled.

    When they get up and hug each other just to sit back down and have a conversation.

    Sure, it was funny once but then it happens every single winterfest and it quickly loses its charm.

    Anyway here's another one - Lighting the fireplace during a heat wave. Sims are just not smart.

    I find it frustrating when my sims ignore the dining table right next to them and go to the other side of the house where there’s a couch, and then ignore that, too, and squat down on the floor to eat.

    Wow mine never eat on the floor, why would you when you can go eat on whatever bed someone is sleeping in!

    Lets see, so many. Probably my pet hate atm is grabbing water. I've tried using autonomy scan on the sinks, fridge and the sim themself and turned off every instance of grab water or 'craft' water I can find. They've resorted to not showing an action queued but still somehow going and getting one. Grrr!

    Honorable mention to everything to do with the phone.

    When my sims wear the ugly random outfits instead of what I dressed them.

    When they do autonomous actions with NO autonomy selected.

    Me talking to my Sim (screen):

    HEY! Nobody told you to passionate kiss Simeon, what the...?

    Tsk, I didn't tell you to keep talking to that visiting Sim and especially didn't tell you to 'imply Mother is a Llama.'

    Wait, wait, STOP! I canceled 'bake chocolate cake.' I know you have a sweettooth, I can relate but sheesh!

    Do what I say and nothing more! If there's nothing in your queue, just stand there like a good little Sim until I tell you to do something, mkay? Get it? Got it? Good! (I know you don't got it though) *sigh*
