Interests panel randomizing constantly?
« on: 2010 November 09, 05:09:16 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

My sims' interests are being constantly randomized. They're not being reset to their old status, they're actually being completely randomized each time. This happens constantly and I haven't found anything specific that causes it to happen. Every few minutes it will just... **poof**... randomize itself.

Yes, I already yanked all the hacks. It still did it even with no hacks. Originally I thought it might be the interestloss hack, but it isn't.

It just figures that as soon as I start playing the game again, it does its best to remind me why I had stopped playing it.  Roll Eyes

If I find out this is a "feature" of one of the newer EPs, I will murder someone at EA.


ETA: I should note that this causes lag if the panel happens to be open. It's like that stupid re-rolling portrait glitch we had once upon a time.

When it first generates the interests, it normally sets a stamp on the sim indicating this has happened. Is it possible that something is preventing the game from writing save data correctly, thus causing the token to fail to take?

What would cause that? Nothing else seems to be wrong in this neighborhood, and it's pretty new with only about 100 sims total (playable and NPC). The other sim attributes, like skills, badges, and so on, are being saved correctly and I haven't seen them randomly change.

I guess I'll see if it happens in any other neighborhood.

No, not really.

Anyway, I still haven't found any reason this is happening, but I did figure out that it's only happening in one neighborhood and only to a few sims (all playable). I figure the neighborhood is just corrupt, somehow. Good thing it was new and not very important.

Just to further document this glitch in case someone else gets it, here's a pic:

I think that happens as a non-glitch while your sim is off the lot during an alien abduction. Does knowing it might be abduction-related help? And I don't know if it would help but did you try deleting the .cache files before loading an all-mods-removed game?
