Ah, sorry. Your wording about it being "the one thing ACR had that I really wanted" made it sound like you had been or were looking at possibly using the mod.

Risky woohoo makes there be a risk, the whole point of birth control for me is to remove that risk for certain couples that I don't want unplanned pregnancies for. I'm sure some people do like it, but to me it makes no sense. Why would I want two levels of oopsie? Inteen is the same, but it at least provides a flavor pak that let's us make birth control failsafe.

And I know I can use cannot get pregnant, figured that out once I realized birth control was failing. But that to me is also dumb. I will use it from now on, but the phrasing bothers me. Semantics, I know, but cannot get pregnant sounds more permanent and it feels weird to set a Sim to that with the intention of removing it later on. Will probably mod ACR eventually to make birth control 100% safe.


It seems to be a matter of perception. In my mind, if a sim isn't on birth control, that means they're not taking any special precautions to prevent becoming pregnant (no condoms, no pills, not even ye olde pull-out or rhythm method). They may not be trying to get pregnant, but they're not actively avoiding it. Fallible birth control is just a way of adding a risk where a sim is actively trying to avoid pregnancy but ends up pregnant anyway, whether because they did something risky on their end or the method they were using failed. It allows for more depth of character/story development than if there were only the choices of no birth control or 100% birth control. I've had fun playing sims both ways. I had a lady sim who just didn't care to keep up with birth control, so I never put her on it, yet she somehow managed to sail through life without getting pregnant. Where-as poor Gonreil Capp had one drink at a bar, come home super-tired, and immediately fell for Albany's coaxing charms which ended up leaving her pregnant when she very clearly had not wanted to be. I wouldn't have had the opportunity of that storyline with 100% birth control.

I don't have any hacks for risky woohoo or birth control or anything like that. I handle it all myself with some personal rules and a few dice. Obviously, that's not everyone's preference, but it works well for me.

Yes, I guess it is a matter of perception. The way I interpret it, risky woohoo is failing birth control. Woohoo does not carry a risk of pregnancy in an unmodded game, so adding it via mod to me means adding a failing mechanism to whatever built in birth control Sims are using to make sure woohoo never results in pregnancy.

But either way, I do think it's weird ACR does not have the option to make birth control totally safe. I doubt I'm the only one that wants it that way, and ACR is usually all about options.

If you have questions on how to use SimPE or WW, you're welcome to PM me.

Grim? I think. Something silly since it's not a site I like to visit.

Can you make sure lol. I'll look silly if I ask for a non existing username to be unbanned.

Grim pops up when I start typing in the box. I'm only assuming I am banned since I joined and never posted. It might also be I forgot my password. I just never tried because I don't like to go on that site. Right now my son is around- I homeschool. I avoid going on adult sites. Anytime CH has his mods up elsewhere I grab it from there. I could try late tonight I guess, with my second email and rejoin.

Well let me know if you need me to email them. Chris Hatch has been coming out with some nice family friendly stuff lately, so it's worth getting your log in back. And you have the thread I posted to avoid the naughty stuff with. XD

Yeah, my impression from the thread was that twojeffs stabilized ACR and stopped updating but left a few things undone that he originally meant to include. He probably thought the Cannot Get Pregnant option was suitable enough, even if the wording might come across as more a permanent solution (like being infertile or having an irreversible sterilization done).

That Sims and Pets could sleep on the same bed.

Basically, I just directed my Sim to use the bed, because he was tired. Then, the dog just happened to use the same bed. And they slept on the same bed together!

Yes, I am aware of this mod, by MogHughson, but I am telling you that I do not actually have this mod in my game. So, what you are seeing may be a really lucky glitch.

Pets sleep on beds in my game too and I don't have the mod either.

You must do, because apart from a glitch, pets can't sleep in a single bed with a sim, that's a mod. They can sleep on the other side of a double bed.

I see - it is a double bed in my game, though - I did not realise they can't sleep on a single bed.

That's what the mod is for, single beds. PP linked to it above. Although it only allows kids to have the pet on the bed; I guess adults are too big and don't leave enough room.

I keep a very organized Downloads folder. Although I do have a MogHughson folder, I don't have that mod. I also don't have that mod in my Download history. And I don't think I've ever downloaded it before. No, I am fairly sure it is a glitch. The dog and Sim got on the bed at the same time, so apparently there was no furniture check to see whether the furniture was already occupied.

I got this sort of glitch once, and I also took a picture. I do not remember all the details, but i ended up with a sim bathing with his dog, still in bath tub. That was very lovely.
