Sims Being Mean

Behappy1stBehappy1st Posts: 711 Member
I hate this. Why are all my sims being mean to each other when they don't have the mean trait? They are destroying their relationships. I want a big happy family, but now I just get hurt feelings all around. I play for hours normally, but lately I'm in maybe 10 minutes and I get upset with EVERYONE being mean that I quit. In the past once in a while you would come across a mean sim, fine. But the last few weeks its been everyone. Please fix this, something is very wrong here.

    @Behappy1st If you're not opposed to mods, someone has a mod to fix this. Unfortunately I can't remember who and I don't have it because I own Snowy Escape, which not having that EP is linked to the bug. Maybe someone else knows or you could find it by Googling.

    If you use MCCC you can turn off autonomous mean interactions in the mod settings. That’s what I did.

    Yes, I did that too. I just thought if behappy1st doesn't use mods, a complicated mod like MCCC wouldn't be the place to start. :smile: A simpler mod that disables something that's causing them distress might be a better option.

    Here is a link to a small mod (mean socials fix) which should fix the issue: https://kuttoe.itch.io/mini-mods-bug-fixes

    It's a bug related to the new loyal trait, though it affects all sims.
    They seem to be considering it a high priority bug, here's the latest I've seen

    I do hope that they fix the bug, it's so annoying to have to worry about my Sim randomly being rude to people (especially her wife and kid), usually when I'm unable to cancel it, or an NPC is the one being mean (despite not having the mean trait) I use the reset object cheat.

    Aaahh, thanks for the info! I couldn't understand why I absolutely don't have this bug. I had missed the exception with Snowy Escape.

    You're welcome. I had missed it too until very recently. Since I have SE, I was then reassured enough to go ahead and update my game. I also used MCCC tuner to cut out autonomous mean interactions, but I was afraid that the bug could somehow supersede it. I'm a bit paranoid when it comes to my sims LOL.

    I don't use mods. I'm not good with computers and I wouldn't know how or even remember to take them out with an update.

    Also a couple of people said not having Snowy Escape was part of the problem. That's not the case for me. I have every pack except the Beat The Dust Kit.

    Interesting. You might consider posting on the Answers HQ thread and mention that you have Snowy Escape and are experiencing the problem anyway. (Be sure to list the packs you have and the mods you are using, and whether you also have the problem without mods, that will help with troubleshooting)

    I do also have Snowy Escape and did experience the issue without mods. I also heard of other players who own Snowy Escape and got the issue regardless.

    I have all the packs and I haven't seen my sims engage in mean socials, but I have seen the number of bad relationships in their panels growing. So far everything is still rosy between all my main cast of sims. The bad relationships are confined to random townies and characters that aren't involved in the main story other than to be background filler.

    I haven't gone and looked for a mod yet to stop it but I probably should before my luck runs out.

    I don't use mods and never have. I'm just vanilla.

    I don't any other expansion packs besides the base game, and holiday pack for my PC.
    I have two Sims with the loyal trait, and they are constantly having mean interactions, when none of them have any negative traits.
    I constantly have to cancel the mean interactions, and make them apologize to each other constantly as well.

    This is literally the worst bug from recent past years, topping even the infamous cooking bug. Even more because it affects something core to The Sims: relationships.

    I'm really sad this end of year with the bundle "new wants" & mean interactions. :|
