Then again I don't think I've ever had a Sim who +500 or -200 on that "gender preference" scale.


I use ACR and randomize gender preference with high settings because I want my Sims who are gay to actually be gay and not sorta gay. It will randomize some to bisexual, so I do check the scores to make sure.

Pescado's romancemod is indeed supposed to do that. If it isn't working properly, try running the Hack Conflict Detector to see if something's interfering with it.

yeah I know it does all sorts of things but I really don't want ACR in my game. It has a lot of features I really don't want in my game and with the features i would want I can emulate them in the way I play my Sims. Like if I have a gay Sim, for example, I just don't have him flirt with female Sims and don't have female Sims flirt with him, don't need ACR for that.

Taking an extended break from Sims stuff. Might be around, might not.

I like the randomizing of gender preference with ACR, that's all I was trying to say, not advocating for it per se. It still doesn't prevent gay and straight Sims from getting crushes on the wrong gender. Hence my pet peeve, but I do the same and try not to have them flirt with each other. Not every pet peeve can be solved with a mod.

I did put in a mod for autonomous putting away of leftovers, which I liked until I played some dorms. As soon as the cafeteria cook put out my meals, someone would autonomously put them away. That's all they'd do! Had to take it out.

Not going to lie, this feature is one of the best parts of ACR for me; one of the reasons why I installed it, too. I love the unpredictability it has brought into my game, the chaos, the ability to have sims choose their own partners, and the ability to give birth control to certain sims, but the ability to randomise gender preference was a godsend for me.

As tedious as it may sound, could you not have just had a sim get the leftovers from the fridge? Or does that just turn it into a game of "Let's place the leftovers in and out of the fridge"? I think that's why I've never looked into this mod to be honest

As for a recent pet peeve of mine, it's annoying how sims can't woohoo in their cars if there's a child home. What do I mean by this? Imagine this scenario: a couple are on a date in the comfort of their home and are having a decent time. Suddenly, they want to woohoo in the car, so you chuckle to yourself, or roll your eyes depending on your mood, and have them prepare. They get to the car and "I know I have other responsibilities, but I can't leave the young ones alone!"

To that, I say, the car is literally a couple of steps from the front door, you can hear little Jimmy watching the TV, you're that close; what's the big deal?! So, I'm expected to call a Nanny, just so a couple can have fun in their car for a few seconds? Really?

When a game is predictable, it's boring.
That goes for any medium that isn't life.
That's why The Sims 2 is my favourite sims game.
It pays great attention to detail and can be unpredictable.
The Sims 4 is another story altogether...

Yes, it turned into a vicious cycle because as soon as they put the prepared meals in the fridge, the cafeteria cook would make more, and then they would put those in the fridge, and on and on and on...

A really minor thing but when my sims are eating and their hunger meter reaches the maximum, they decide to go wash the damn plate full of food even though there is visible food on the plate! Stop wasting this food away dammit!

I really would like a fix for the bug -- and I'm sure it is a bug -- when you set up a casual group for the purpose of taking the children on an outing. You make sure all the children are included in the group. You call for the taxi. And, when the taxi arrives . . .

"I know I have other responsibilities, but I can't leave the young ones alone!" . . .

But I'm not leaving them. I'm taking them. . .

But it's no use. The taxi drives off empty. And the children don't get their outing.

I find that absolutely maddening. GRRR! GRRRRR! GRRRRRRR!

All Sims are beautiful -- even the ugly ones.

My neatest sim is in temporary housing, and cleaned the place out before work. And back from work, she is still full of soap bubbles

I was just getting extremely irritated when the bubbles vanished

The Sim Blender also has the ability to randomize gender preference and I used to use it frequently on my old computer.

It doesn't work in my game anymore for some reason - instead of a range from 0 to 100% for each gender preference, I get a range from 0 to 2. This isn't a mod conflict because I tested with Sim Blender literally the only thing in my Downloads folder. ACR2's gender preference randomizer still seems to work just fine, but I really don't want to use ACR.

Drives me crazy too, I now have them go to the community lot first with everyone then I have to do the whole "ask to join group" scenario. Seems a lot of work just to take the family out to dinner.

Does the taxi not ask who is included in the outing when you phone? I've never had a problem with that.

Silly question, but do you have the Sim Blender appropriate for the EPs you own? That's the only thing I can think of.
