Mom, Dad and brothers at neighbors towns

Post by ErinPW »

"Nice" surprise while my Teen Bobby was on tour in some neighbors towns. I'm just waiting for new goals like "Send a teen to flirt with a neighbours teen" :roll: Bobby found some more brothers and parents, but I didn't take screenshots from all. I also watched out for a sister, but I didn't find one. :?
I guess, the reason for this issue is in the create a sim menue. There are not so many sims to select, and all of us have the same choices.

Has anybody else noticed family members at neighbours towns?

I haven't noticed that. But I will be sure and look for it now. Glad you observed this!

No, I have never noticed this! Of course, I play that my sims are related to any other sims with the same last name (such as your Davis family), but I've never seen the game actually label neighbor sims as relatives! That's pretty cool, actually :D

Yes, I have noticed this too. When I send some of my teens to Perturbee's town, it will state that they r brothers or sisters. It happens In a couple of other towns I visit as well. I just thought it might be a glitch or something. But your not alone.

Thanks @ all for response!
Really cool would be, if the relationships to those sims would be shown as aunt, uncle and cousin :)

That would be cool! It would also be nice if Sims that moved in together as friends, didn't take on the owners last name lol.

Thanks for posting this, ErinPW!

I wonder if this has anything to do with the position in the sim tracker (of the sim in the neighbour's town) or possibly the order of creation. I'll do some testing with visiting my own games to see if this is the case.

There are still some bugs in the out-of-town relationships, it doesn't really surprise me that these kind of things surface. Who knows, maybe there are even spouses in other towns?

Edit: It is what I thought, the parents in neighbours towns are the ones in the same position in the Sim tracker of the originating town.

Because of the name thing I had to reset my game yesterday. Stupid me had the wrong sim active while asking to move in. Stupid, because I know, what happens :roll: But nothing is all black ... After the last save I didn't get the tv-increase for completing a house with 1LP. After the reset I got it :D

After my sim no. 4 has left my town a few weeks ago, Bobby's parents are on position 4 and 5 in my sim tracker. Julie and Janet have the same position in yours?

Btw. This morning I sent Bobby's dad to your town. There's nothing shown about relationship, they are just strangers.

Position 5 = Andras Bubics
Position 6 = Julie Schumacher
Position 7 = Janet Walker
Strange, because I'd expect 5 and 6, taking into account the deleted Sim.

I haven't deleted anybody in the low end on my regular game and the ones I tested with and there they matched up. (Two test games visiting my regular game).
I also noticed no spouse errors when I tested those with the same slots.
