  • My strategy on this is to just forget about it and get reminded when it actually happens. That way I won't waste time or energy pondering or wondering, and whatever it turns out to be, won't disappoint.
  • ikr?! It reminds me of the wack a mole game. Can't keep em all down at once. Thank good ness they made the "set the table" option that gets people to all sit qnd eat together. Also the hot pot, that does it too. Have you tried turning off autonomy? I was pleased that Sims are now more likely to do sensible things like Go…
  • That would be nice, but if you have noticed, the game is curiously puritanical in some ways but not in others. Sims can be alleycats but attaching sensuality to vampires as is done in all vampire lore ever, must be a step too far. After all, even calling blood, blood, isn't done in the game despite it being rated Teen.…
  • The teenage garbage artist really should have been a rug, but alas, it's more Ike a backpack or laundry pile which you also have to go around instead of over. Most unfortunate for making the room believably messy.
  • This is so true! Prom is like one of those buggy dates that goes too fast to accomplish goals.
  • Not a quirk, but I had a global superstar who was also rags to riches, and it was odd how after a while, being adored mindlessly by Sims who don't really know him, and also surrounded by people who just want to ne seen with him, will offer him jobs because he's famous, be friends or lovers because of his fame, it all…
  • Haha that was great! Okay, this was messed up: I have a generational rotation save, and in it, Cassandra Goth married Caleb Vatore, and Alexander Goth married Lilith Vatore.amd had her turn him. Lilith and Alexander had a daughter, also a vampire, named Belladonna who is a child now. Mortimer had died long since and was…
  • Never tried them. Eggnog?
  • I must have, as a kid, at least once. Have you ever fallen off a trampoline?
  • I have. NHIE had a pet lizard.
  • 😊 that's a heck of a compliment, DeKay, though I'm certain I don't have near the cutthroat drive necessary. I do wish and hope that humanity is actually evolving slowly away from rule by force toward something more collaborative and consensual. Evidence around the world seems to indicate that old habits of running…
  • I like this idea: an aspiration to be a well rounded teen, just winning at a normal happy balanced life, not going to extremes in any direction. The kind of person who strives to keep things in balance. They could have goals like maintaining a B average, keeping needs from going red, and having at least three good friends,…
  • Usually when I start a new Sim from scratch, I take my inspiration from what they look like to me. A sim that gets my attention might look like the quintessential playboy living off a trust fund, or like an old retired jazz musician looking to finally catch that legendary fish he's been angling for, in a cozy little cabin…
  • The culture of excessive obligatory gifting is awful imo too, wherever it happens Gifts are supposed to be a very personal thing, done between people who are close enough to go to each other's homes regularly, I think. When it's just nearest and dearest, it's fine. But all the obligations to gift near-strangers and…
  • What happens with the door locks in Sims4? I was enjoying the ability to specify which sims could open which doors in Sims3 and it works really well. Of course if it worked just as well in 4, that's still a heavy-handed solution because then, roommates and family members can never come into someone's room unless you unlock…
  • I have the most affinity for Windenburg and have had so much fun with the Villarreal (mostly Max and Hugo, but also Jacques); the Munches (mostly Wolfgang); and often, I had fun having Wolfgang date Luna and/or Morgan Fyres. Recently I played the Behrs and played Yuki being a transguy, with a mod. That has been a blast…
  • Maybe @Kendrana or @AlpineCuriosity ? WOTT has the most pets?
  • Surprised no one has yet mentioned boinking anyone and everyone, even when their spouse is in the next room, and it's all good. 🤣
  • I laughingly sympathize! Remember Third Rock from the Sun, if you ever watched that? Ms. Dubachek (not sure of spelling) the middle-aged landlady with the flashy taste, was of the type who still wore fake eyelashes, at the time. They were practically a standing joke, except for drag performers or those grizzled ladies who…
  • That's terrible! But was Riku Andrew's husband, or your simself's? Couldn't tell from how it was worded. Very interesting story event!
  • Would love it if the gameplay were deep enough that a crazed fan did it for reasons that make sense in context, but it's probably just a sim with the klepto trait. If it were a hidden possibility with starstruck sims, that would be a great surprise that they actually added that much depth.
  • Yes! Mentally I have an image of me as a Sim, slapping away that grabby hand and giving them a good scolding. Don't you just hate it when you hire a caterer for a fancy wedding and they make everything BUT wedding cake so you end up having one of the couple getting married, busy baking their own wedding cake? I need to…
  • He is always older in my games. Sometimes they have the same number if days til age up but his green bar is longer, and sometimes there's a difference in days, more difference usually if lifespan is set to long. I was surprised that some people said in their game, Luna was older. This is why it's so perplexing to me, you'd…
  • I know this is an older thread but I never know how old is too old to still use. I really want to get to the bottom of this, that some people report Luna being older and some people report Hugo being older. I wonder if random variations in age bars between siblings happen anywhere se in the game, or just Luna and Hugo? It…
  • Those are strong unilateral generalizations about what kids, and people generally, are like. I find there is more variation in the world than the OP takes into consideration. I had a couple of friends in high school who had parties at their houses, so some teens must throw parties. Some people are not polyamorous at all,…
  • You. Sounds nice but I'm not that motivated. WMLT keep wearing shorts even when it is chilly enough to need a jacket?
  • Yuki Behr (he/him) Not the kind I was hoping for, all those nights with the telescope. But I had a strange encounter my senior year of high school, with a young teacher. We just felt this instant chemistry, too strong to deny. We had a whirlwind clandestine romance. He quit his job teaching, and surprised me with a New…
  • Egg and turkey bacon sandwich with a whole French press of coffee. Mostly decaf thpugh.
  • What even is that? And no. NhIE ridden a real bull.
  • I think that must be @DeKay WOTT drinks the most coffee?
