What about this theory: is it complete balderdash?

"Mary-Sue Pleasant's first chance card is rigged so that however you respond to it, you lose - she gets demoted and ends up coming back early."

No, that one's true -- it's one of the scripted actions that comes with the game as a sort-of 'tutorial'  thing.  However, I believe you can ignore and and continue on normally.

Yeah my problem is that Daniel never got the maid in the sack in time for him to be "accidentally" caught.

That and if you have the cutscenes on, the kids get home for it in time, but not Mary-Sue...

I wasn't aware the idea was to be caught, so my success-oriented mindset dodged that bullet entirely. When the chance card dialog popped up in the middle of rel-fixing, I simply casually batted "ignore", as I do with most low level cards since the benefits rarely outweight the risks, and never found out it was rigged anyway until way later.

Yeah the whole point is to have tutorial dealing with jealousy and break-ups. As, Mary-Sue immediately wants to break up with Daniel.

But of course you knew that. =)

Well, that's what it said in the Prima Guide.  No matter which option you choose, the result would be Mary-Sue coming home early, and supposedly "catching" Daniel in the act.  But you have to time it just right because if they start to woohoo too soon, Mary-Sue won't notice when she gets home because she's crying about getting fired.  By the time she's done, whatever it is that alerts the sim that their spouse is woohooing is gone, so she is still blissfully unaware.

Most of the Pleasantview scenarios are broken since NL, unless you load the lot at least once prior to installing the XPs.

Is it rigged for the Caliente girls too?  The Mortimer walk by is clearly rigged, but how about the burglar? When I first played them they got burgled, one of them got pregnant, promoted, fired and dead in short order.

I guess I suck.
I've been playing this damn game since it first came out and I've never noticed these "hidden" tutorials.
This might be the wrong place to ask, but what other "hidden" tutorials are there?
Also, I've heard about several scenarios that were in the game (like the power outage) but were taken out although the code is still there. Any truth to this?

Feel free to point and laugh/poke with sticks as appropriate.

You can - or at least you could in the past - spawn a scenario tester in Debug mode (boolprop testingcheats enabled -> shift+click on a sim and click the menu till you see Spawn, Scenario Tester...). One of the scenarios dealt with a power outage, during which you still have to keep your family and your guests happy. Kinda weird to get the message and have plenty of electronical stuff still running. Guess it was intended to work with the not added weather function.

Hmm, I know one of the other scenarios is Pablo (?) Curious getting abducted the first time he star gazes (resulting in two alien kids in the Curious household. And the Spectre lady dies of old age in like three days of playing her lot I think. And the Dreamer wedding party.... And Cass and Don's wedding setup is supposed to teach you to make sure people are in a good mood before rushing them to the altar. Those are all I can think of ATM.

I don't play the Maxis made characters since they bore me. Once though, I played as Don Lothario a little bit and yes, he comes with a mini-tutorial. A little message will just pop in the upper corner every now and then. Stuff like, "Don's place is a mess! Call the cleaning service and hire a maid," or, "The showerhead is leaking. Don needs to fix it."

LOL, really? It was a roof raiser in my game... and it was only the first party I ever played. Only problem was I had already played the Caliente sisters beforehand and married Mortimer off to Dina, so Alexander got left alone after Cass & Don's wedding and I almost lost him to the social worker!

LOL, oops.

But anyways, the Prima Guide implies that if you don't play Don's lot first and get him to whoohoo with the Caliente sisters, he'll turn Cass down at the altar (due to low aspiration) and she'll go into aspiration failure.

But then again we all know how notorious those Prima Guides are... and how ridiculously easy it is to get someone to marry your sim...

That's not what the Prima Guide is saying.  If you play the Goth lot first and marry Don and Cassandra, then you can't play Don's lot and go through that scenario because he will no longer live there.  And the reason Don turns down Cassandra if you try to marry them too fast is because of their borderline relationship score, not his aspiration.  This only applies in the base game, because after NL, chemistry has an effect causing sims with good chemistry to accept interactions at lower levels.  The first time I played Pleasantview when I first got TS2, Don left Cassandra at the altar, and I went on to have her marry a sim I made for her.  I played the scenario again later after installing Uni and NL, and I couldn't get him to turn her down.

HelloKit, I don't understand something about your story.  If you had Cass marry Don in your game, then Don would have been moving in with her and Alex, so why would the Social Worker come to get him? Huh

There is another Caliente scenario.

If you move in Mortimer as soon as he walks by the lot (by marrying or just moving him in), you get a message saying something like "Three's Company! It's time for Nina to find her own place."

Rainbow I don't play this hood much but I'm guessing that Mort had moved out with Dina,(Leaving Cass with her brother in Morts old house). The wedding between Cass and Don was so good the Limo came and Alex was left alone, hence the warning from the social worker?

Hmm, maybe that was it.  I didn't have a wedding party for Cass when I first played the lot because the mini tutorial said to "click on the arch" so the only guests were Mort and Alex.  I don't think I've ever had a limo in a house where a child would have been left alone.

Yeah that's what happened. Since I had already moved Mortimer out, I had to throw a wedding party so he could be there, and being literally my first day playing the game, I didn't know about the limo... or the social worker.
