Relationships Triple Boost Week is here

As predicted, Jasmine is back for a new triple boost week. You can read about it here:
Not really excited to be honest but it's good for people who don't like to cheat.

    I absolutely could not be less interested in boost weeks. The needs/career boost was kind of fun.

    I guess there are people that like them though, but i couldnt care less about it.

    I generally don't cheat relationships because I think it's pretty easy as it is, but I do have some legacy children that I need to marry off soon so I might try this out.

    I'm neutral on them, although I do know a particular one of my AIs that could use the boost to try to get smitten with a particular Caleb AKA "Sad Puppy" for those from Discord. :D

    Don't feel like relationships needed a particular boost, but i do like the career/needs boost

    More like see Jasmine Holiday lurking outside your porch/aparment hallway. No, I won't call/need you. :D

    Good for the people that like these challenges.

    This isn't something I'd do since my current family is a husband and wife and their relationship bar is at max...:( Sad wish they could have a little something new...maybe a cute V-day 2017 item. Ah well.

    I'll use this for my lesser played rotational Sims. I was planning on visiting a few of them anyway. The ones that I play more often, erm, don't need this.
    Champ and Girlie are dogs.

    Aww well I don't use boost week so I guess Jasmine won't be visiting my sims!
  • simgirl1010simgirl1010 Posts: 15,035 Member
    I'll use it to boost my sim's relationships with all the non-played households in my neighborhoods. Currently my sim visits the neighbors on Friday nights and it's taking forever to make the rounds and build friendships.

    I wish these boost weeks would die.

    Career boost was nice. Some careers are hard to climb, but relationships really!? :( Not really a fan but whatever floats your boat...
  • luthienrisingluthienrising Posts: 32,137 Member
    Hmmm. I could use this in my nonrealistic save, but it's not the one I've been playing lately, so... maybe? Mind you, I can think of a Sim or two in that one who might be inclined to hire someone who promises "relationship magic," and that could be a way to feel like this fits a story.

    Relationships seem pretty easy as is.

    Everything in this game is easy, which is why I don't understand these useless boost weeks. Not to mention the fact that they're pretty much cheats for players who " don't want to cheat ".

    And an extra event for people who don't want to cheat isn't okay? I'm sure if these weeks weren't being used by players and weren't reengaging players who might have taken time off, they wouldn't be putting time into developing them. People who post here aren't necessarily representative of more casual Sims players, and if those players play more because of a week like that and are maybe inclined as a result to buy a new pack, that helps feed my Sims habit, too - hey, maybe it even helps pay for my bug fixes - so I can't see the problem of an event that's only occasionally likely to be useful to me personally.

    I like these events in general, but this time I'll pass. Playing a Fire Emblem based war challenge atm and the last thing I want is the opponents' friendship bars climb up after each chat. And they DO chat in between fights, way faster than I can click "cancel".

    And, yes, of course the events are basically sanctioned cheats. As is buying premium status or dlc in other games. I don't see the problem with cheating in a single player game. If I want a challenge, then I don't cheat and if I do cheat, well, then obviously my aim wasn't to challenge myself, but to enjoy my freetime in a more relaxed manner.

    Well, it is nice to have a month that might not lead to mods breaking. It is a lot of work to test all of them before you load your favorite save. I can do with a little bit of downtime before the next huge thing.
  • simgirl1010simgirl1010 Posts: 15,035 Member
    Well it's easy enough for those not interested to just avoid calling Jasmine. I wonder how much time and resources went into programming this? Maybe 10 minutes? An hour? :)

    I'm getting some unexpected enjoyment out of it, playing a mischievous flirty vampire who lives in other peoples' houses.

    I might use this for my sims with the Friend of The World aspiration, but otherwise, it's pretty much "meh" to me.

    I guess it's nice that EA acknowledged Valentines somehow... but I'm not so happy about having jasmine back. She's rather annoying to me.

    Where do we find her this time around? I have a lot of new characters with no helpful traits that could use a boost.
