Ok so when I first started the game I created 3 sims in the create-a-sim. Me, my boyfriend and a child (i mixed our genetics together). Me and my boyfriend are now engaged and when I look in my relationship panel it cleary states he is my boyfriend. But when I look at my daughter in the pannel it says 'friend'. Is there anyway I can change this relationship status?? I help her with homework and I play with her and stuff but I find it abit weird that she is my daughter and it only says we are friends :P
It's worth noting that a child can be your "friend" and your "daughter" at the same time. CAS shouldn't have let you exit without making her the child of one of your Sim's. Is there a "family icon" underneath on the left hand side? it looks like a red and green blob, I can't really think of a way to describe it, except it sort of looks like the old online/offline icon for Windows Messenger (the forerunner to MSN) combined. If you hover your mouse over that, it should say daughter, It should also say daughter when your Sim is interacting with her
The child has to be related to one of the adults in the house. Select the child and then click on her family tree icon to see who she is related to, or look at her relationship panel and there will be the little red and green icon under the pictures of her relatives, hold the cursor over the little icon and it will tell you her relationship with that person.
My guess would be that as you only set your Sim's as Bf/gf you have assigned her to be your bf's child and not your self-sim's. You will probably need to use Master Controller to fix that - http://www.the-isz.com/nraas/index.php?topic=80.0 I think it's under Advanced, can't remember off the top of my head.
I had the same problem. I created two sims, boyfriend and girlfriend, and then assigned the kid to them both. For some reason, the game assigned the kid only to the girl and not to the guy. Twallan's Debug Enabler fixes the problem too: I selected the guy I wanted to be the father of the kid, clicked on the kid, then chose "Nraas - Genealogy - Adopt". I got a pop up saying that the guy was now 'father by blood' or something like that. Family tree fixed :D
Apparently, EA doesn't agree with having children out of wedlock, because in CAS if the two adults are not married, you can only assign the child to one parent. Like Astraea Nevermore stated, use Twallan's Debug Enabler here.
