April 7 - We just released a patch Day for The Sims 4 on PC/MAC. Patch notes here.

SP and Aging in WA

If I have a couple, lets call them Mike and Lucy. And then I go to France with them and meet locals and blahblahblah... Lets say Mike and Lucy have kids and a family tree begins. Then someday I visit France again with one of mikes grandkids(Joe) after Mike and lucy die of old age. Will joe meet the same locals or their grandkids or some random made sim families.

Another thing, If the game makes sims will they have names generated based on their country or will China become full of locals with names like Pierre and Brad and Kazim from various cultures.

What do you think will or should happen?

    As far as I know, the locals won't change unless you have them move to the base neighborhood by marrying them. So it seems most likely you will see the same locals for many generations.

    As for names, the game is set up to give locals names that fit their locations, so there should be no Pierres in China.

    :( bummer
    I guess that means you can marry a sim your grandparents met. EDITED for sick stomach reasons

    Haha, no its ok. It is a scary thought though, but I don't think they wanted to make the system have to make new locals every time you send a sim on vacation, or have to deal with finding a way for the game to deal with the gravestones of dead locals.

    I read somewhere that BV caused havoc by creating new sims so your right, they probably played it safe this time.

    You know what hit me just now?? And what if playing long enough we marry off all the local sims from destination?? :shock: Destination is going to be empty? Or what? :lol:

    It will probably work the same as if you married say the maid, a new person is generated to replace that one. So new people will only be generated for locations only as needed, not all the time.

    Oh! I see... I think you're right =) Then let's hope they generate correctly according to the destination they are from :)
