On two occasions, my sim was woohooing with a romantic interest during a full moon, and at the end of the woohoo their partner emerged from under the cover, or, in the second case, out of the shower, as a zombie. Now that could have been one nasty zombie bite. I avoided a second encounter with them even after they reverted to human, it just felt too creepy to do it with an ex-zombie.

Wait, you mean zombies are -only- dead during the full moon?

In Sims 3, Zombies are only Zombies during the full moon. Its not like in Sims 2 where they died and its a permanent life state.

Yea, Zombies are random townies turned for the night, and I've heard some people have seen their playable sims doubles as zombies outside their own house :/

This horse (Michelangelo) was spying on his owner's wife through the kitchen window. Then his owner walked by, but didn't seem to see anything wrong with this. And yes, the guy often leaves the house in his underwear. Whether it's to do outside chores, or something that requires he leave the lot; he almost never changes into his everyday wear on his own.


He doesn't have the insane trait, but does have the genius one. Some genius right?

Does he have 'inappropriate'? That does it too.

Is this the same family as the ones with the other horse-fails? They're very creepy horses if yes

That's not so bad, I've had horses go halfway through the windows and walls to get "close" to their owners. They apparently lack any sense of privacy in their programming.

Last night a wild horse just popped itself right into my sim's living room. I had to temporarily remove part of the wall to let it out. I wish I'd taken some photos.

Jeez, what's up with all the routing issues in this game? I mean, I've got a horse stuck in the local gym, two Sims with their legs stuck in the ground (one of which is another horse), my Sim can apparently convert an object into another object while standing outside in it's direction (between a foundation and a wall) Sims derping out like crazy like they had too much coffee to drink in the morning and horses that can apparently cross ponds when trying to walk over to something. Although, on the last bit I've got to admit, it's made some nice photos.



Oh yeah, and can anyone explain to me why my originally grey skinned Sim turned dark brown instead after a few Sim-days? I honestly don't mind it (it looks kinda good on him) but why?

Well, horses do ford streams, and I'll bet that's your Sim with a suntan.

As for sims stuck in the ground and inside walls, that's been a "feature" for a long time now. I especially enjoy watching my sim dismount from the trampoline and end up planted up to their knees in the ground. I try to get them out before nightfall, though. Too much lagging otherwise.

His hair is brown/red in the second pic also. It looks like the lighting just him made appear black/grey indoors.
He is a very handsome sim :D

Moreover, it looks like homeless Sims are the ones that qualify to be zombies. Imagine my horror when I kicked one of my legacy Sims out and he spawned back in the front lawn of my legacy castle during a full moon night.

No, random residents can become the undead for a night. Then they get to go home and explain to their family about the really weird dream they had about being a zombie for a night. OTOH, if they were real zombies, they would just go home and eat their families, but this is the Sims, after all.

When it's time to woohoo, both sims try to route to the same side of the bed. Every. Single. Time. For about the last like *9* patches!

Nope, no inappropriate trait. Almost none of my male Sims (that I make myself) change to everyday when they go outside.

It's the same family, I just have restarted them since I got Seasons. But now they have a really nice barn and paddock, so maybe this will help a little. But then again, in my game, you never know. I did once find a wild horse in the consignment shop, and he/she couldn't get out.

Go back a few pages and read what else I have posted about my horses if you think this is odd. It's actually quite normal for my Sims' horses.

I hate when a Sim starts playing their guitar (I do this quite often as I want to max out her guitar skill) and then everyone else in the house comes along, drops everything they're doing, and stands there watching the aforementioned Sim play. No matter if you end up peeing yourself, or possibly dying of starvation (yes, that has happened while I was playing on a different Sim), or you pass out on the floor. Nope. The guitar takes first precedence.

By the way, this is an awesome thread. I love reading how Sims irritate other Simmers.

Yes, I know the sprinkler is surrounded by plants. Oddly enough, they are using it.
Yes, I know the sprinkler is still surrounded by plants. You really don't want to water them all yourself all day, do you?
Yes! The sprinkler does still have plants around it! You know that thing you are standing right next to? It's the water slide you begged me for and got because I was hoping it would distract you from the sprinkler. Go slide on it!
Yes, the sprinkler is still surrounded by plants. The plants aren't going to move. Deal with it!

OK, you have spent so long now complaining about what you -can't- have that Overwatch has declared you a stationary sim. Happy now?

Yes, the sprinkler is still blocked by plants. Excuse me; I have a mod to download.

Its a sad commentary on the game when a WTF moment is when a NPC actually does the job they are paid to do. That said, I know how you feel. There have been times I was afraid that social services would take away the babies because the babysitter was doing everything but taking care of the babies while my Sim parents were at work.

One time I actually had two NPCs do their job once. One was a babysitter and one was a maid. Needless to say, I have not encountered any more who actually do their job.

Incredible!
The babysitter was one of the fairies in Moonlight Falls. I don't know if she's somehow actually more competent than the others or if I simply got lucky [let's face it, probably the latter], but I had two babies and one crib [the parents, Dameon and Mavira are both assholes], and the babysitter actually fed and changed the baby in the crib. She didn't do so well with floorbabby sadly, just kept continually picking him up and putting him back down on the spot, but when I bought a crib, she tended to him as well fine. I'm amazed. o_o

Thankfully I've not actually worried about social services coming to fuck my shit up [although maybe I should be] but yeah, the babysitters are normally so phenominally useless I might just have Dameon go on a rampage with a pistol. Shape up or die!

There are strange things going on in my game since Supernaturals:

"You love blood plasma too?! Cheers!"



My werewolves ... well, they have different table manners ....





A fire (caused by my witcher) is always a good reason to meet the neighbours.



I have a new usage for paparazzis: test object for my witcher



"Yeah! Let's party!"
She's sweet in a very disturbing way.

Thanks! And I think that was probably a bad pic; his skin really did turn brown (in comparison to the old one)!

Recent Pic:

I don't think he got a suntan, either. There was no indicator or moodlet to tell me and it hasn't even hit summer yet... It seems like his skin tone just changed on it's own...

Oh my gosh, game, WTF are you doing?!

My single sim got a call asking her out on a date. I thought, what the hell, why not? So I went to the location of the date. Her date, it turns out, was married, and refused to do anything romantic with her because he didn't want to cheat. SO WHY DID YOU ASK ME OUT. This has happened to me twice. Another sim sent her a love letter, and then when I replied he sent me a letter saying he wasn't interested, followed by another letter saying that he was. He was also married, and my sim's brother in law.
