    I recently found out that (with Eco lifestyle ?) kids can dumpster dive and find toys. I was visiting the Art center in San Myshuno when for some reason clicked the dumpster next to the bar inside and for my suprise there was this option 😁

    I just learned that if you have a ghost haunt a pipe organ it will play creepy organ music the whole time.

    I also recently learned that gloomy sims get inspired by being around ghosts.

    It should come from Kids Room stuff, being one of the ways to collect Voidcritter cards.

    Unlike adult sims, children can't be directly told to browse through obituaries on the internet when they're sad. However, that's exactly what a sad child will do if you tell them to look at kid-friendly websites.

    I didn't know that a toddler blowing out candles on a cake to age up to child can be instantly famous if the parent(s) has fame.

    Did you know that if you have the bowling stuff pack your sim can change the color of the bowling ball after leveling up bowling skill. You can do this by clicking on the bowling racks that come with the pack. I actually found this out today by playing, and i've had this since it released. :D Never realized the racks became functional.

    I just noticed that, after the latest patch, when a Sim is doing something that builds a skill, an icon indicating the skill they're developing appears over the "status bar" where you see the level going up. I could always figure out what skill was improving, but the icon is a fun little touch.

    Children can also look for discarded toys in the frog logs!

    It's nice to see for Genius (and a different trait? Can't remember.) Sims that get random boosts.

    One of my favorite new features. No more clicking on the skills panel to see which skill is highlighted. Once I learn what all the icons represent. 😄

    I didn't know that reading skill books doesn't count as reading books for "Nerd Brain" and other aspirations.

    Also didn't know that polite introduction doesn't count as a friendly introduction for an aspiration.

    Unless the latest patch broke something, they do count. It just takes a while, and unlike with some of the other books, you can't see the progress. Skill books are the only books I ever let my sims read.

    When a Loyal Sim sees another Sim be mean to one of the Loyal Sim's friends, he will intervene and act mean towards this person. He will also get a confident "not on my watch" confident buff. Similarly if he sees two of his friends be mean to each other, he will intervene and be mean to the instigator. He will also get the "why cant we all get along" confident buff.

    I didn't know there were custom frames that you can mount photos into in the Moschino Pack until reading McCrudd's post: How I take my sim's photo's and make them family portraits :o

    (I knew about the one that changes every hour or day or whatever. I'll see if I can find the static photo frames...)

    If you disable "Temperature effects on sims" in the game options, your sims will no longer get the freezing moodlets and cannot die from cold, but they will still do the shivering animation.

    I play with temperature effects on in regular gameplay, but this is so useful for scripted stories!

    Die from too cold or too hot. Yes. I turned it off because the NPC's were too stoopid and dying regularly. :D

    Keep in mind the Sims can still get the uncomfortable moodlet from extreme temperature. Unless they get one the reward traits to counter that. ;)

    EDIT: Oh and also, it doesn't matter what a Sim has in their Hot or Cool outfit slot(s). As long as they are wearing that, they are "ok". heh heh! You could have underwear in the cold weather outfit slot, and in freezing temperatures... they're fine!

    I've only just started properly exploring Character Values. Disappointed to find out that doing the laundry doesn't seem to have an impact on Manners at all :/

    What about "responsibility" maybe?

    Interesting observation though.

    I find that confidence does effect the values, and that starts off low if they were a chaos toddler. Still, confidence seems like it's too easy to bolster into high confidence and Responsible with Parenthood and Growing Together.

    I didn't know I could be offered a job randomly through a prompt once you reach a certain career level! That was crazy.
