Cannot get some sims pregnant
« on: 2009 October 26, 16:47:07 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

I'm having problems getting a couple of female sims pregnant and want to know if there's anything I can do. One is a Goth descendent and the other several generations on from a CAS sim. They're both married to their respective spouses and I can go through all the interactions right up to and including 'Try for baby' but nothing ever comes of it. I have switched to other families and created a fresh CAS family and they can all fall pregnant with no problems. It happens that there were aging up problems with both of them as I had to make their respective households active before they'd age up to the next stage each time for toddler/child/teen. They were both also resident in the Goth household so I moved them out thinking it might be the house that was bugged in some way. The other odd thing is that the romance interactions don't seem to reset the way they do with other sims, either the couples are ready to try for baby or a simple flirt action will get them in the mood. I'm only running awesomemod (latest dated today 26/10) and have tried deleting cache files, resetSim and just about anything else that looked like it might work. Help!

EDIT: I've got the awesomemod messages enabled now and they both couples come up with 'Unable to pollinate X with Y' messages.

How many people do you have in each household? I think the maximum is 8, and even with overstuffed houses enabled, I think I heard you can't actually get pregnant once you hit 8.

Originally the two couples shared the Goth mansion then I moved them out to separate houses, so no problems with numbers. I haven't had any problems getting overstuffed houses to work.

I had that problem with 2 females in one generation. I never determined the problem. There must have been a problem with the aging flags. If I tried Twallan's pollinator the response was something about being too old to get pregnant, even as a YA. They never aged on their own, I finally had to manually age them. Are your 2 aging?

I had to manually age both of them in their respective households. They remained toddlers, children etc until I made their household active at which point they automatically had a birthday and hit the next life stage. It's quite likely their underlying ages would put Methuselah to shame. I guess that the pollination logic is probably checking days old rather than if they're at the appropriate life stage to spawn.

I've had over-stuffed houses have babies without a problem. One of them had a baby when I wasn't controlling them.

Eh, it was a topic somewhere down in the Awesomemod section. Maybe it was an isolated incident.

I just remembered that I had a problem getting a woman pregnant recently.  She had just aged up from YA to A. I finally gave up on the normal method and used twallen's pollinator. At first, it said she was too old to get pregnant. I thought "weird" and did something else for a while. When I came back to her later, I was able to impregnate her with the pollinator with no problem. Not sure that is any help to you, but there it is.

If you have debugging enabled, shift-control click the female sim you want to get pregnant, then choose "get pregnant". It's a couple of layers deep, and you can pollinate a child or elder sim, or even your own offspring as well. Pregnant child sims stretch out rather bizzarly when they walk, and elders are just a head, feet, and hands.

Why would you want to get a child pregnant though?  I'm rather disturbed that option is even there.  Ewww...

I agree with Dragon Slave, why the hell would you want a child pregnant? For the lulz? And elders? Ew...
