I'm trying to decide whether I want to disable emotional deaths with MCCC or not and I'm curious whether others do.
Pros of Disabling: I think that the emotional deaths are ridiculous, and too sensitive to small things, and there have been a few times that they have killed Sims I was genuinely sad to lose. I'm actually kind of annoyed because that's such a stupid and unrealistic cause of death.
Cons of Disabling: Even though I was sad to lose those Sims, it did make for unexpected twists in the story. I had one comedian die tragically young, leaving behind her husband and pre-teen child. The boy grew up to become a master actor, inspired by working through the loss of his mother, and he has an incredibly close bond with his father (they have matching tattoos in honor of his mother). Now he is raising his own son and lost her mother to a break-up/affair, and his son wants to become a master actor and the father-son bond is repeating across generations. I'm going to play this legacy of actors down the line now. I would never have gotten this interesting character/story development without the unplanned death. And additionally, I almost never lose Sims to anything else besides old age. In fact, I have never lost a played Sim to any other cause of death. A few dumb NPCs have died in blizzards, or vampire attacks, but that's it.
TLDR; I wish other types of death occurred just a teeny bit more easily, and emotional deaths were slightly less sensitive. Do you allow emotional deaths, and why or why not?
