What are some trivial things that annoy you?
For some reason all I can hear is Jimmy Hendrix singing 'Foxy Lady' right now...
Okay, that's bloody creepy...
My Families Via PlumTree App
If you do not mind me giving some insight on this, I'll take over for @FanPhoria here.
It's just happening with in-laws. It's caused by the whimset_Friendship tuning, more precisely the whims
Relatives are correctly tuned to be not available for these whims, but as in-laws do not have their own relationship set, they are not.
No way to ask an NPC where their home lot is so I have to search through maps trying to figure it out.
There's others but it was these two things today.
Hi! It never happens with relatives that are designated as family members (parents, children, siblings, first cousins, grandparents, first degree aunts & uncles, ect). However, in case where there's NOT specific designation, it can happen, which basically means any connection by marriage. So, for commonly, that's the parents of the sim a sim is married to, but it could also be their grandparents or siblings, or also when they are an aunt of uncle by marriage (so, Sim 1 has an uncle, the uncle gets married, there's no real "family connection" between Sim 1 and their uncle's spouse, so romantic inclinations can arise) I've also seen it very commonly happen with "step" siblings, (2 sims that get married already each had their own children, then when those children age they become interested in each other romantically) and can happen if, say, a married couple have both been impregnated by an alien abduction (2 children that are a result of abductions have no relation to each other, if the abducted parent is different, even if those 2 parents are married and raised the 2 children together), tho that maybe bothers me less since, idk, it's aliens I guess? lol.
Tbh, I haven't noticed any specifics in terms of group conversations or who their talking to or what have you. It's just something that can come up if they have a friendly relationship (if the whim to flirt comes up it usually has the "from being near a friendly relationship" tag attached to it). And since I tend to play a lot of families to who tend ot be pretty tight-nit and spend a lot of time together, often containing large households with multiple generations living together, having friendly relations with one's in-laws is pretty common.
Another thing kinda related to this that I didn't mention in the original post is how this affect sim's with the Jealous trait in what is, in my opinion, a pretty annoying way. Like, I get that jealous sims are supposed to be, well, jealous, but do they really need to fly into a fit every Harvestfest whenever their own mother talks to their spouse over the dinner table? It just seems a bit much lol. I feel like jealousy really shouldn't come in with the jealous sim's own family members unless they see something actually romantic going on, at which point they could have an even more exaggerated response to it, or something like that. But, I feel like even the most suspicious wouldn't automatically assume the worst when their wife asks one of their family members (the jealous sim's family members that is), like their grandmother or uncle or younger sister, how their day is.
~ Her dislike in Mischief and yet she autonomously chooses "Troll the Forums".
~ The standard complaints since the game's inception: musical chairs, fangirl/boying over a celeb in the middle of a date, celebs stalking other worlds/places (Judith Ward)…etc. I actually uninstalled some packs for that reason. I shouldn't see L Faba and Judith Ward in the library in Willow Creek.
~ The whole idea of requiring Modders just to make the game worth the $1000 you put in it (if you buy everything full price, it's almost if not $1000). Especially considering this is a massive company and one of the front runners in PC gaming in general. You want people to keep buying your stuff? Give them an incentive. (I love our Modders, don't get me wrong. But they shouldn't have to feel the need to fix these things).
~ Homeless Sims winning the lottery. I never win because of them. And the game generates massive amounts of homeless Sims as the save goes on.
~ The entire whim system.
~ The entire emotions system.
~ Sims getting hung up in tasks all because of some unknown stranger wanting to talk to my Sim on the far side of the map which eventually cancels out anyway.
~ Kids wanting to talk to random adults. E.g. My loner Sim was playing the chess in the library and a random kid just struck up a conversation out of nowhere. He was the only kid there too. As a kid, I wasn't really shy. But I did feel uncomfortable when an adult randomly started talking to me out of nowhere.
I can continue but I won't. You'll be here all day reading these. I don't hate the game. Just that this is a wax orange when I want a real one.
I don't know if this counts as "trivial" but it bugs me when my Sim is talking to Rey, that she is mostly mute when it comes to regular dialogue; as when they recorded her British dialect; they only recorded phrases relating to the missions in Similsh; as opposed to the full Sim dialogue.
I wish these characters had been coded so their more unique features could carry over regardless of what one did with them; while they were still capable of standard Sim stuff. It's annoying that if you don't remove the hidden traits relating to their NPC status, certain normal interactions can't be done. But if you do, the unique features, like Rey and her lightsaber, are no longer done.

Thanks for the detailed information, will pass this on to the team.
Sims that my Sims don't even know coming into my house and making themselves at home and then not leaving despite being asked to.
The riding bikes indoors that someone else has already mentioned.
I have created 150 Sims in one of my saves I don’t need more Sims generating.
@Peral: There's a social interaction to remove the bugg, but it can only be done by the Sim that initially added it.
I literally play this music above when playing Sims 4! Cozy and Fuzzy
Oh - that got me the first time! Because to plan an event, to me, suggests making arrangements for it to occur at some determined time in the future. When it occurred immediately, I had to scramble. I was at the big park in Oasis Springs. I dropped into Build/Buy, placed a counter, a stove, a fridge and maybe a sink, and had my Culinary sim - one of my grooms - whip up a wedding cake on the fly.
That was such a stress-bomb that with a single exception (1st gen heir) I have never done a scored Wedding Event since - it's all been Elope, or have a few friends around when they click on the wedding arch.
But I am unlikely ever to forget that, "plan" notwithstanding, it will start right away.
