    With how low the area of effect jealousy is in the game, I doubt a Sim will notice if they are being cheated on or not.

    Oh I don't know about that Scobre. My sim's wife Cat had Bella Goth over for visit one day. And Bella hitted on my sim while Cat was standing right there next my sim and Bella. Cat was furious with Bella flirting with my sim. Bella Goth was so embarrassed with what she had done that she had bolted right out the front door without saying goodbye or even I have to be going. Bella just bolted out that door. I have never seen a sim move so fast like Bella Goth did that day.

    That is neat it works well with the pets at least.

    I imagine that it works well with any of the packs. Although I haven't had any sim do that in my game for quite some time now. So I don't know if that's still working or not at this time.
    ETA: Bella Goth moving so fast was something to see alright. I mean she just high-tailed it right out that front door as if Temperance was chasing after her. Of course Temperance wasn't because this happened years ago, long before we got Paranormal.

    every occult or sims interactions should be allowed too be switched off so those who brought the packs just for items do not complain that they have vampires and spellcasters or mermaids and aliens in the game

    Yeah, vampires are so nerfed I don't see them doing anything vampiric. Alien abductions don't exist unless sim is scientist or alien.

    I don’t know. I have one sim that a vampire likes and tries to come feed of at night..... and it’s not vlad. I just keep the door locked if I don’t want it to happen. I do remember my sims not being able to get out of a night club once because the vampire was keeping them in there I guess..... I never did understand the point of that.

    Who even complained about this? I am very active in the Sims community yet I never saw anyone complain about this feature? I have seen people complain about other stuff that was never changed though.

    @logion You hit the nail on the head.

    People on twitter started complaining and got a response from the sims twitter, soon after that sims news sites and youtubers started making videos blowing the whole thing way out of proportion.
    To me it honestly feels like these people are just chasing drama at this point and I'm getting pretty tired of it. The sims team should just have changed the patch notes and that's it.

    The written 411 Recap on April 29th listed and detailed what personality traits were updated in the last patch. Up until that point, we did not know. Too much information/communication--you tell me. When I read it on April 29th, I thought nothing of it--certainly didn't think it had anything to do with consent considering all the various ways a Sim can become dazed.

    Molly who is also an EA Game Changer also known as storylegacysims who recently designed two outfits (Toddler top and pants) in the Sims. According to her, she's been playing the game for 11 years. On April 30th, Molly put this on her twitter account which kicked things off.

    So, of course the Sims team wanted to avert a PR nightmare and squash the issue before it ignited. Hence, the Sims teams responded the next day on May 1st with the following:



    Ofcourse it had to be a Karen.

    The Sims 4 is becoming a castrated version of life at this point.

    I was actually replying to the part you edited out, by saying "Hey, don't get them any ideas" :smiley::p

    @Ellupelluellu Haha yeah I thought I might give them ideas for more "politically incorrect" stuff to cut out so I erased it just in case. :lol:
    Where's my Sims 5 squad at?

    As a game-changer shouldn't she have mentioned it quietly to EA/Maxis? It makes a nonsense of EA using them to try out games for them and find out problems. I thought that was what they were for.
    That was a problem that could be sorted if reported but she chose to show it to all and sundry who hadn't come across it at all yet.

    Illegal abduction by aliens next! No abduction of adult male Sims leading to alien babies and all that...............

    Instead of Star wars stuff we should have had a game pack of fighting such aliens off our males! :oB)

    I'm gonna ask for simrays to be nerfed.

    I once had a very disturbing dream of being frozen in a block of ice, and the thought of using a simray in game really triggers me.

    What they should do is make different modes. One where nothing bad ever happens to your sims. One where sims can die and some bad things can happen like normal life. And one mode where life can be chaotic within the game's rating.

    I don’t want to play a sims game with modes. I will agree for a on and off switch for interactions!

    It's stuff like this that makes me take loooong breaks from the game - waiting for Paralives to drop, then I can forget about Sims 4 and most likely Sims forever. It makes me sad what happened to the Sims franchise tbh. It's so much I love about it, but I'm just wasting money and time and hope on it at this point, sorry to say. I'm supporting paralives now and it looks very promising so far and exactly the kind of simulation game I want. The direct line of communication to the devs is the icing on the cake and very much the indie approach which I love. Still will take a while before the game comes out, but at least I know that I'll have some simulation game to play once all hope for sims is gone.

    In essence, Sims 4 is just hurting itself with limiting any kind of gameplay and not letting players decide how they want to play instead of sanitizing everything. I'll NEVER understand why the devs don't just give us more setting options and toggles for things instead of nerfing or removing. Just give the over sensitive players a sanitized player mode and leave us adults alone. For crying out loud.
    Allons-y!
