Sims constantly resetting due to error with "Attraction Score"
« on: 2009 June 29, 21:08:32 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

After quite some time playing a family with two loving adults, they start to lost autonomy. They stand there complaining of their ailments, and their pose resets(as well as their portrait, and their plumbob disappears for a second).

Turning on testing cheats gives me this:



Which, from "Attraction Score" tells me the problem is with the adults in love.

Deleting one of the adults fixes this. So it definitely is a problem with attraction. But unfortunately...I have no idea what.

It is not a matter of Downloads- I got this before and "fixed it" by removing downloads. Since, I have installed NOTHING but decorative objects with no overrides or data changes, and it happened out of nowhere after at least 20 sim days and hours of play.

I've found that this happens to someone else, for seemingly no reason at all, too. Any ideas what the problem could be? I've included the error as an attachment.

Still tight pants.
Just because it's a decorative object doesn't mean it's harmless.  Yank it out and try again.
Make sure whatever you're playing is patched.

See, the idea was that in specifying that they didn't alter anything, it would get the point across that they don't alter anything.

I removed everything I've downloaded since I first got and "fixed" this problem and nothing changed.

Initially, when I got it, I removed EVERYTHING. And it was fixed. I put half of it back. Still fixed. Half of the rest back. Still fixed. Etc. Until I narrowed it down to one folder, and I simply never put that folder back.

Now, a week later, it happens again. For all I know, that folder that appeared to cause it didn't do anything, and the only reason it was seemingly "fixed" was because it isn't a constant thing.

I've removed everything downloaded since then and the problem came back. It happens after quite a long time so it isn't like I can really test it- that would require hours of play without anything installed to possibly see if it stopped. It's not a constant thing- often it is fixed just by reloading the lot. It isn't as simple as removing things and testing it. That would take days worth of gameplay.



Edit: Found this:
http://www.simbology.com/smf/index.php/topic,15.0.html

Which seems related. "fixes a very strange issue where the game would not generate an attraction score if the sim's ‘target' was sitting or laying down" However, it didn't do anything. The game was fine for a few minutes but it started acting up again.

I was ready to suggest that. If you don't want teens and adults attracted to each other, but want to solve the skunk attraction problem, then use this mod:

Skunk Attraction Fix
http://www.simbology.com/smf/index.php?topic=16.0

If you aren't familiar with that site, you should know that TwoJeffs puts out high quality mods backed by excellent support.

unfortunately it doesnt seem to work. =/

However that may be because I saved while the problem was happening. I'm moving the family anyway and will see if it changes anything now that they've reset their household.

Did you try nuking the attraction markers with the lot debugger?

This could be the "Aspirationless Sim" bug. Take the defective sims and stick their heads in the headfryer.

Aspirationless sim bug?

...Now that I think about it, I DID use the sim modder to change a sim's aspiration, and...yeah, I never checked. Checking now, it's not there.

So I should just...kill him off and be done with it? Is it trying to detect their compatibility from aspiration and finding there's none to detect?
