Baby Disaster!

Post by HordePrime »

A short time ago, the stork finally delivered my baby. After I clicked on it and gave it a name, it took me out to my snow park (where I had some skaters).

I thought that it hadn't worked, so I went back and named the baby again... except there were two! - Both of which have the same name! - It took me a while to realise what had happened - I guess I must have been given twins.

I had intended to have one girl, but in the confusion I must have made one of them a boy! - So now I have a teenaged boy named Laura. I'm sure he's gonna thank me for that :?

I'm also stuck with a useless baby that I don't really want.
And it means I can't get another sim for even more levels now than before. What happens if I delete the baby? - Will it free up a slot and allow me to have an extra adult now, or will it go back to the maximum for my level and give me another one when I normally would get one??

Pretty sure, I would have thought, that I made a mistake, and would have ended with a Boy named Laura, too. My first baby was a girl, and her name is Bobby .... because I forgot to change the gender. Now it's the short name for Roberta :lol:

I don't know, how many sims you can have. But you can see it in your game, when you tap the number of sims you have at the top of your screen. When you have e.g. 11 of 10, I'm pretty sure you cannot add a new free sim after deleting the baby :(

If you delete the baby... It will take you back to your maximum number of sims of 31. You will not be able to replace it. I had twins .... I deletes one but could not replace it. Took me back to 31 sims

If you decide to keep him, you could just decide that the name is foreign and isn't pronounced the way it is spelled.

I'm only on level 42, so I can normally have a maximum of 24 sims, the limit being raised by one when I got to level 44.
However, now I have 25 sims on account of the twin, and I can't get another now until level 46.

So, if I delete the twin, will it go to 24/24 sims with the next on level 44, will it let me swap the baby for a different sim, or will it just delete the sim and still not let me have another until level 46?

I'm thinking I have to bake some more birthday cakes now. I didn't want to because of the LP cost and time involved, but I find the baby very annoying; it keeps going to her when I want to select an adult to make them do something. I could keep her hibernating all the time, but that seems rather pointless - the XP gain is negligible.

I suppose another teen might help me get the sign quicker, but that would mean spending another 15LP just to get one, and I could just use that now on the sign.

But I'm tempted just to delete the baby. - Is there any advantage to having twins?

If you go down to 23 of 24 the game should let you add a new sim without costs. I could do this a few times, when I actually didn't want to have more sims, but needed one for some reason.
But the game does not always react as expected. When you save to the cloud, before you try this, you can go back, if it didn't work :)

Twins come randomly into the game. Some people say it's a bug, I see it's similar to real life :) It's an advantage, when it fills your wishes, e.g. you want a family with 3 children. Another is, when you have reached the limit of 31 and want to have 32 sims this way.

I'd be going down to 24/24 though, rather than the 25/24 I have now.

Sorry, I've edited my post. But I didn't get a warning, that there is a new post :(

Then you'll have to wait or to pay :( But the level, when the next sim will be unlocked, should go to level 44.
