This is weird, right?

My Sim brought a friend home from work... except it’s a child Sim. The kid already knows one of my Sim’s children, but even so...

    It's a hobby thing. Not weird but dumb of them not to think about. :(

    Oh, ok. I’m not sure what hobby they have in common, I’ll have to check when I go to play the kid’s family.
    As with the other thread I started, I’m a little paranoid about corruption haha.

    Usually it happens after a Chance card from work and it sends a hobby friend home.

    I think there was a hobby-related chance card now I think about it.
    It’s definitely an odd scenario. The Sim in question is employed in the Architecture career, why would a child be on a building site? Do they not care about health and safety in SimNation?

    The Sims has currently lost its identity. Bring it back for TS5

    That is a bug caused by hobbies, as @Rflong7 mentioned. There is a mod for it tho. To stop kids bringing adults home from school and the opposite.

    I'm a new member so I can't make a thread for this but it's similar so -

    My sim (teen) invited her boyfriend over to her house. He asks if he can bring a friend, and I assume it's his teen sister because he probably doesn't really know that many other people. He brings HER (the sim who made the phone call's) dad? She's not even that close to him, as even though he's been invited to her birthday parties they either don't interact at all or have some sort of "clearly not getting along" conversation.

    Is this normal, a glitch, just a weird feature? IDK I have a feeling my hood is getting corrupted but I also haven't done too much to corrupt it in the first place.

    IDK, maybe I missed them really hitting it off during the parties, but he's usually too busy with her mom.

    Hi :)
    No, it's not a glitch. Iirc - The game randomly chooses someone they know even if they don't know them well. :)

    As long as they're not someone like Strangetown's Bella Goth who knows the Therapist and Reaper you shouldn't be in danger if someone brings a non-friend home. It's a common game quirk like how hobby chance cards can cause Don Lothario to get off the school bus.

    There's a mod that tells you who they want to bring home too if you want to play it safe. Also good if you want to help prevent Don Lothario accidentally bringing the whole neighbourhood over when you decide to get him over to flirt with.

    Never had that happen in ~15 years of playing. Lucky me!
