View Full Version : Baby's Gender Glitch?
20th Jan 2012, 02:18 AM
Hey, so I've had 6 baby girls in a row and no boys AT ALL!!
so far on the latest pregnancy, I've saved the game 6 hours before the queen is going to give birth and kept reloading the save to get a baby boy but the queen kept on having baby girl!
Does this glitch possibly happened because the queen did the royal heir quest and chose a boy -->which leads to her having a girl -->which happens in every game anyway--> and now it led to her having only baby girl? I haven't tried impregnating any other sims and see the baby gender but still :(

i've had the same issue at random times. I really want to find a way to influence the gender of the child.

Supposedly eating foods made with apples as part of the ingredients increases the chances of having a boy and eating foods with turnips increase chances at girls like how apples and watermelons in the sims 3 increases odds of boys and girls respectively. I don't know how well that actually works though. But a better, more successful method would be nice.

the apple thing doesn't work :( I tried potato soup as well because I figured, in sims 3, apple & watermelon = fruit --- sims medieval= turnip for girls = vegetable ==> therefore the food for boys should be a vegetable as well. It still doesnt work though lol. Maybe I'll try Onion soup and Mushroom soup later but im starting to think this is really really a glitch from the royal heir quest thing. BECAUSE OMG CMON 0 BOYS OUT OF 12312312 PREGNANCIES???? I HAVE LIKE 028391092381 PRINCESSES RUNNING AROUND THE KINGDOM NOW
maybe i'll just give up and make it women kingdom )8
P.S : I just tried having babies in another kingdom, got a baby boy in the third try, fed the mother 3 bowls of onion soup, though I'm not sure if the onion soup really affects it, it could be just the 50:50 chance thing. Though I'm 90% sure now that the other kingdom is glitched because of the royal heir quest shit D8 /rage

The apple thing does work, but it's effects are very limited. I'm trying to mess with the DTTB, but the S3PE wrapper isn't working for me right now. The code can apply a maximum of 15% bias towards gender. Each Apple equals 5%. Normally the code rolls a 50/50 chance. After eating three apples you should have a 65/35 chance in favor of boys. Still not the best odds, and I'm still not sure of which food works for females. It's coded "watermelon" but clearly it is not.
I think I can make this work more consistantly, and change the female food to something that is truely available in the game, but I need a DTTB wrapper. I can write a C++ DTTB editor, so I can do it. It's just a matter of how much time I have, and how long it will take. Since this is a very common complaint, it's one of the things I'm looking at adding to my core. If nothing else I can make it allow you to choose the baby's gender.

i'd be happy if I could click an option and choose a gender. but whatever you can do, will be fine by me!

That would be way too easy Darth. I couldn't do that without at least trying something better. As is, yes, I found the code, I can make it so you can choose your baby's gender in a dialog box. This is a last resort only.

I've been digging through the code this morning, and it turns out I'm wrong. While there is code left in the engine to increase the chances, it never seems to get called. It's strange since EA even went as far as tuning the variables. I can guarantee at this point that no type of food with have any affect on your baby's gender. I'm working on a way to add it to my core. So far I have an interaction that will let you boost your chances at the desired gender up to 100%.
