View Full Version : can't figure out predestined hobby!
23rd Apr 2008, 1:20 AM
So since I got Freetime, I created two new families.
In family A, I moved them in and had them do a bunch of activities. Within the first day, the guy declared his love for sports after shooting some hoops, and the girl for nature after watering a garden. So then their hobbies were highlighted in white showing it was a favourite.
Second family I made, I moved in and I have had both of them try a number of activities relating to every single hobby there is in the game and neither of them will reveal their predestined hobby!!! What's up with this?

I've had this with one of my born in game sims.. usually by the time they're a child, they've chose their hobby. His little sister even decided when she was a toddler.. But he's now a teen and just gone off to uni and I still have no idea what his hobby is and I'm sure I've tried all the different activities! :confused: Perhaps it's a glitch that happens some time...

You could try using Paladin's hack to determine what their predestined hobby is supposed to be (or change it): http://www.simwardrobe.com/

The lot-debugger at MATY has an option under info to show the predestined hobby as well.

yes, obviously I already did that

But nvm, It was under objects.

I have the same problem with a bunch of Sims in my game but so far none born in-game or created in CAS. Those in my games missing their pre-destined hobbies are the Townies I created with the NPC maker. Some of my Sims married said Townies and after going through everything I never did find their hobbies. I finally checked in SimPE and sure enough, they have no pre-destined hobbies.
While digging in SimPE I looked at the born in-game Sims and they have pre-destined hobbies as do my randomly generated Townies.

I had my Sim self try every hobby out. She went quickly from activity to activity but she didn't like any of them. So I peeked with the Lot Debugger and it said "games". I know she played the video game on the computer. I had her play again and a after a few seconds, sure enough, the pop up appeared.
A little tip would be to make sure they try a hobby activity for a good amount of time. That said, I'd rather just peek. :p
