Read to children/toddler, and other questions.
« on: 2012 March 10, 20:22:25 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

I started playing Sims 2 again and I have some questions.

1. Is there any benefit for toddlers/children being read to? I always cancel this action because it seems time consuming with no value (that I know of).

2. Is it dangerous to use Rodney's death creator to set adult or teen to "die of old age"? I want some adult and teen ghosts that behave like normal ghosts and have fancy urn/tombstone.

3. Do I have to care about the zits on teen sims? Is there any effect?

4. What possibly caused my romance sim to want nothing but to dance? He has 7 loves now and each time the wants are rerolled all four slots are filled with "dance with". I have to invite a sim, greet, then run to the stereo, call over and make them dance together. That's a lot of work for 500 aspiration points, not to mention very repetitive. If I'm lucky he's gonna want to talk and tickle that sim afterwards, but most times he doesn't want anything to do with them anymore. It's been a week he hasn't wanted to flirt or woohoo. I have to see if those Neukum speakers are available for homes, I think I should put one of them outside just for this.

5. When a sim is abducted, is the alien pregnancy decided at the start of abduction or when the sim is sent home?

Yes. If you don't take care of the zits your poor sims will grow up with horrible disfiguring pock marks!

None whatsoever.

Not that I know of.

3. Do I have to care about the zits on teen sims? Is there any effect?
Nope. And there's nothing you can really do about them afterwards, either. They just go away on their own. Sims can't actually amputate them in any way. The alleged treatment option in the mirror is actually a placebo, as it does not actually remove them.

4. What possibly caused my romance sim to want nothing but to dance? He has 7 loves now and each time the wants are rerolled all four slots are filled with "dance with".
Apparently, science has found that better dancers are more attractive.

5. When a sim is abducted, is the alien pregnancy decided at the start of abduction or when the sim is sent home?
I believe it occurs during the return sequence, because if something breaks in mid-abduction, nothing happens.

Yeah, the little pregnancy music cue plays only after the abducted sim has recovered from the shock.

Well, I'm being super positive because I've only tried University so far and I enjoyed it immensely, while you guys pooh pooh it. So it looks like I'm gonna very much enjoy all the other EPs. I play very few computer games which is probably why I have such a low standard.

And the fact that you're as dumb as a box of rocks has nothing to do it, right?

I would suggest you get those EPs and then apply the Director's Cut. It will cut down significantly on all kinds of want spam (may cure your dance issues).
