May 29 - It's Friday. What does that mean on The Sims forums? Time to highlight some awesim discussions!

Do You Sims Sit To Watch TV?

I swear mine never do it unless I tell them too which is kind of annoying but oh well lol. Just curious.

    It depends honestly. Sometimes they want to and sometimes they wanna stand and ive noticd if you have a kid sim watch with their parents sometimes, their parents will sit and the kid will stand right in front of the tv, ensuring no one else gets to enjoy the show xD

    I've got a cinema build in my game, theres lots of chairs so that's not the problem and they still stand, talk and on their phones 😂, blocking a poor wee sim that decided to sit down watching the big screen from movie hangout hahaha

    I downloaded a cinema from the gallery the one that is in there and like I had my sims take their kid to watch the movie and she stood right in front of her dad hes trying to watch and she was throwing paint on the floor

    It was a time to be had XD

    People sit down to watch TV in the Sims? I kid. That seems to be the one problem I don't have (as long as there are seats).

    Most of the time, but I have noticed them sit less and stand more... stand literally infront of the sofa/couch/chair, too.

    For me, it depends on how many other Sims are around, or they'll stop sitting if they're done with another action like eating. They'll stand up after eating and watching TV, and proceed to just watch TV while standing instead of just continue sitting.

    Mine ALWAYS stand when watching tv unless told otherwise. Quite frustrating.

    it differs, I feel like it has to do with how the seatings are placed to the tv but I am not sure...

    Most of the time I’ve noticed that mines usually only sit when they are eating.

    My Sims rarely watch TV, but they always sit down when they do. I really like that Sims can snuggle while watching TV o:)
  • BabykittyjadeBabykittyjade Posts: 1,147 Member
    They never sit ugh. I have to sit them manually then they play musical chairs. The snuggle while watching TV has potential but the animation is really bad. They slightly lean their heads together and last time I checked that's not the definition of cuddling lol.
    Zombies, oh please oh please give us zombies!! :'(

    Some do, some don't. I don't get the pattern behind this but I suspect active/sporty sims are more likely to stand, at least in my gameplay. Kids usually sit on the floor and play with a toy while they watch tv. It's the cutest thing lol

    No, they will stand right in front of the couch/chairs to watch tv.
  • TistouTistou Posts: 72 Member
    I often let mine eat in front of the TV, then they sit. But when they've finished eating, they let their plate go, stand up and continue watching TV standing, although they were sitting on the couch for the whole meal xD

    Mine will always watch tv on their own but refuse to sit down
  • Bearpal64Bearpal64 Posts: 731 Member
    Mine will stand behind a TV to watch it and I'm like so you can do that but you can't sit down to watch the TV? Is something in the way? Does coffee table placement matter? It's just such a simple thing and I just don't understand Sim logic sometimes lol

    My sims always sit down and watch TV, while they eat, that’s my way of fulfilling Fun and Hunger at the same time. And after installing Island Living, they even kneel in front of the TV first before sitting themselves down on the couch.

    Yes and no. They will sit when there are chairs open. If all chairs are taken then they most likely stand to watch TV. Sometimes they just stand anyway which is really annoying.
