Related to that, I have learnt that it takes around 24 effing painful in-game HOURS to be robbed when owning said house, simply because the cop has to go back and forth between the house and the car twice, and does so at the slowest pace imaginable. Meanwhile, you cannot save or enter build/buy with the burglary technically still in progress. My evil sim does not approve.
I also learnt that DNA samples disappear when travelling between worlds. I was looking forward to raising Chinese babies at home :/
Finally, I stumbled on a very simple way of raking in a filthy amount of money: obtained Tiberium from breaking space rocks, cut them, analysed the dust and cloned them a billion times, let them grow and consigned them. someone stop me...

Truth. I had to dig my screenshots when I read your post. Why doesn't he run away?

Let's just agree to disagree.

That if you move in 3 more adult sims meant to be your main sim's only adult son (he's a YA meant to be 31 and her other kids are all baby-child aged, she's a 2,001-year-old vampire so yeah), his wife, and his wife's other polyamorous husband who is also loosely based on one of your main sim's 6 polyamorous husbands, your sim and her female servants will hit on her son and his brother-husband and her husbands will hit on their daughter/stepdaughter-in-law... To be fair, I hadn't made the guy her son or married to his wife using Mastercontroller yet lol, it still felt awkward though

That some sims are really, really horny.

I kept wondering why my legacy sim kept rolling woohoo wish after woohoo wish for her spouse seconds after just having finished woohoo, so I decided to check her gender preference stats, and this were her results:





She doesn't even have the Flirty or Hopeless Romantic traits. On the contrary - she's a shy, clumsy, childish coward bookworm. Compare this with her spouse (I didn't bother taking a screenshot of his male gender pref, since he's straight):

Out of curiosity, I just looked at the gender preferences for all adult sims in my house (I have no teens, only YAs, children, toddlers, and babies, none of which of the latter 3 I checked), consisting of my main sim, her 6 husbands, her 3 servants (all female), her adult son, her daughter-in-law, and her daughter-in-law's other husband, and also the NPC maid, and my main sim had the highest male preference and most negative female preference out of them all, probably unsurprising being she has 6 relationships, has the Hopeless Romantic and Family Oriented traits, and her Lifetime Wish is Gold Digger, which all probably greatly contribute. I think my sim's even hornier than yours...

The gender pref numbers as revealed by MasterController do not measure an intensity of interest in hanky panky or other romantic types of activities. A sim with a +50,000 pref for a certain gender won't be any more hormone-driven than one with a +5, the first one just won't likely have enough experiences in their lifetime to change their minds about which gender(s) they are attracted or not attracted to. The second one might not stay with that preference if things go certain ways.

So basically my main sim is only so sure of being straight because she's had 6 relationships at once all with male sims and has spent the majority of her sim-life pregnant by then all, while a sim like the NPC maid or her son and her daughter-in-law's other husband or her servants have such low preferences because they've only had 1 short relationship or no relationships whatsoever in her servant's case so it can change with any relationship?

Hmm, I did a check with my other legacy sims though, and most seem to have their preferences in the hundreds for positives and minus hundreds/thousands for the negatives - regardless of experience. The one with the +50/90k actually has more experience than her spouse - they're each other's first loves, but she has trouble saying no to other people who initiate the flirting first (And her prefs have already shifted somewhat from experience; according to an older screenshot she had 105k for female when she aged up to teen.) On the other hand, while her spouse's female preference may only be +92, his male one is -2k.

Any other theory for why she's so addicted to woohoo, though? The gender pref just seemed fitting since she's the only one I've ever seen with +10k, let alone +50-100k :P

More or less, but it also depends where these sims start out when they are created or become of age. By default, the game sets most sims as 0/0 (undecided) or something like +2/-1 (just slightly straight) and then things like social activities and player direction have a strong impact on how they evolve. The potential starting out points can be adjusted with rolls of the virtual dice using chance settings in NRaas StoryProgression, for those who use that. A sim starting out as bi will have prefs something like +50,000/+50,000. That doesn't necessarily mean they're going to try to hump everything that moves or they already have tried, it just means they are pretty well set as attracted to both genders. If you want one to be asexual, you could adjust them yourself to -50,000/-50,000.

But yes, a sim who starts out with numbers of low magnitude in either or both directions like most are by default will gain lots of + points as they have positive and - points as they have negative romantic experiences throughout the game.

Well, her traits don't seem to fit the profile you describe so it's probably not that. She's really powerfully attracted to her spouse and these other sims? There aren't any other high quality fun things to do/play with at home?

Some of this intense interest is going to depend on whether you use NRaas Woohooer, its optional Scoring module, Kama Simtra, and how you have their various options arranged. And some sims just seem to be "like that."

I get it now, thanks

Well, I probably won't be on here that much anymore. I'll post random stuff here, though. https://twitter.com/vicdrawscomics

Apparently if your sim retires and then gets another job, they still get their retirement pension.
