I imagine Bella or Amber saying "Plum!" in a really high voice instead of a bleep.
Ah, so that's why I read "coctail" repeatedly and apparently "public" gets also censored and people now write "non-private".

Nah, that would be okay. Plum as a slang word is highly dependent on context. You Plum! would actually translate into You Idiot! and not You C***!

It's all solo woohoo, which might explain why they give birth to object babies. They use solo woohoo objects. It's that danger your mother never warned you about.

"Coctail" and "Non-Private" are me. Headache = Chillgood.

They don't touch each other at all, they simply agree to fuck - which, according to ybis, is how it works on real life, no make out or useless shit like that.

Oh, and one simmer managed to record and share 20 minutes of gameplay, which was FILLED with clipping (sims walking right through each other!) and bugs, like disappearing sims and erradict behavior.

That's pretty much it.


Thanks! I'm off to go find this gameplay video

Is it really that hard to make family trees?

Here you go (woohoo one, I mean):

And the answer to any TS4-related question that starts with "Is it really that hard?" is always "Yes, apparently."

After they're done, they go to sleep for 2 seconds, and then wake up.

???

I feel like I could like this woohoo if it wasn't for the things I mentioned above. It's also longer than I anticipated. I almost felt uncomfortable watching it, like, anytime now...


She was probably on her period and he was a dudebro and felt grossed out so they played by themselves
Imho the music was awful, no need to put music to that moment, in some parts when you could hear the bass it sounded a bit like a porn movie
...and the cuddling? who needs cuddling after so emotional moment, right?

After seeing all of these gameplay videos it seems like emotions are a gimmick, sims don't show emotions when giving birth, when woohooing, etc. All these natural moments in our life, the sims just ignore them, but sure they can die of laughter

Strange fetish perhaps? Yes my love I enjoy it when you hop under the sheets in your pjs and flop about like a dying fish, ooo yeah, and don't forget the bunny slippers

Anyway that woohoo video was so uninspired, he just hops out and makes the bed right after? This is why we need a woohoo skill, by level 10 they should be burning the sheets after passing out from exhaustion for a few hours

That "pick your breeding partner" woohoo selection screen is atrocious.
My bets are you can woohoo with any adult sim that is on the lot. Why else would they have space for so many sims?
It's fucking ridiculous.

The Sims means a lot of things to various people, sure, but bros aren't inherently bad people or harmful in any way. They belong in this game as much as any clique type does (nerds, jocks, rebels, artists, snobs, etc).


I have to agree with this, especially the last point about other clique groups that are or have been included in The Sims. The bro thing itself doesn't bother me. It's just that, as has been the case with any Sims 4 talking point used by the gurus, it's been way overused at every possible point in EA marketing. And perhaps because of that, it highlights the negative connotations some have with real life 'bros'.

They sometimes do that (jump out and make the bed) in Sims 2, as well. Depends on their energy level and whether or not they are particularly neat.

This, plus the 'friendzone' verbage that was used, plus the game's obvious attempt to slant marketing towards male gamers (bro emphasis, rage pushups, 'Pee like a champion', de-emphasized or removed family gameplay, heavily emphasized bar/picking up chicks gameplay, etc).

None of this means I think that it's some sort of huge, intentional misogynistic conspiracy, but it does mean I read the word 'bro' and I see a symbol of part of the design philosophy that has moved TS4 very far away from the game's roots. And that's irritating, and becomes more irritating when bros come around here and act like an oppressed minority. No one is impugning your right to drink beer and watch football, it's fine. And don't worry, I'm sure that 'bulge' slider will get modded in very soon.

I agree that it is ridiculous. How often does your sim know so many potential partners that you need a selection screen with filters to pick a partner for ”woohoo”?
I have to wonder if the selection screen is perhaps a relic from the abandoned online version of Sims 4. In a game where you were probably not supposed to age but live pretty much ”forever” (judging by the fact that all age groups other than young adult/adult appear to have been added as an after-thought) and where you could have had dozens or even hundreds of other non-aging online friends, the selection screen would have made much more sense.

Twallan's Woohooer has a selection screen like that when you click on a woohoo object. Maybe they thought that we wanted that in TS$, too, seeing how popular his mods are.

We've got it all wrong. They built that woohoo selection screen to provide the ability to ctrl click multiple sims.

Jealousy wasn't working correctly with the new emotional game engine, so it was eliminated in favor of sexy swinging functionality. Threesomes will work, but anything above that won't be shipped in the base game (there's nothing preventing orgies from being added later though)

My latest (and last, because i can only save 30 percent of the time) TS3 family consisted of a guy, that got 10 women pregnant (i wanted to see, how "my" genetics would take over the city) and he mainly did that in the shower, because it was just more convenient. There was some kind of woohoo selection screen for that, too, and it only showed love interests as a possibility, so i think it will be the same here. I even think, that it will have less choices, because of the romantic bar. In TS3, ex-girlfriends where counted as love interests, even when they hated him like crazy.

The elevator had that, too, initially, but it was patched out eventually, probably because there the filter didn't work and you could choose everyone on a lot.

Same for InTeen for TS2 (basically a full-featured reproductive mod). But when people use that kind of mod, they're choosing to break immersion.

It also calls to mind ChristianLov's baby pet creator for TS2, where you would click two neighborhood pets to be the parents from a similar dialogue window.

If anyone was brave/talented enough to recreate a 'working Sim' mod, that selection screen would come in very handy!!

Damn Google Translate.........................................caught again.

I wonder which Guru was responsible for putting the name blacklist together? That must have been a shitty job to land.

Too bad they focused on the possibly misleading names, and not on the Amber porn which got posted in less than a day in the Gallery. Names i don't mind. Endless pages of naked Amber **shudders**

There are premade 'kid-appropriate' blacklists for names that get used and reused by game companies. Still, I would imagine that maintaining/updating them is a bitch.

Of course, why my sandbox game is now subject to child-friendly naming filters is another question.

The net result is that I can make a naked, anatomically correct sim and upload her to the gallery...but she can't be named Fatima Hussein. Because...think of the children!

I actually didn't mind the Woohoo video. Nothing spectacular, nothing awful. I did like how the guy became Inspired afterwards.
