View Full Version : Clone Babies
9th Feb 2006, 01:25 AM
I have a problem.Every time a baby is born and grows into a toddler,he/she looks almost/exactly like their father,personality wise too.Then,when "Mom" and "Dad" have another child,they look exactly like their sibling with little to no personality change.What's up with they genetics?I think this is like this for every family in Pleasantview.I haven't tried Veronaville or Strangetown yet.Does the dad's genetics overrides the mom's genetics?I have the twins/triplets/quads mod installed on my game and I think that's the problem.Anyone can help me?

Before you go into the lot that you want to have children, go into CAS. Hit the "random sim" button a few dozen times. Your sim children will look different and with a different personality than their siblings. You'll have to do this each time you start the game (if you're going to have your sims have kids that session) if you want your children to be unique from their siblings.
I think Pescado's lot debugger includes a little utility to randomize genetics without using CAS, too...
If the father has custom genetics (which are always dominant), or if his genetics are Maxis but dominant (same way genes can be dominant and recessive in humans), the kids'll tend to look like him.

Also, if he has a dominant hair or eye colour, and the mother has a recessive colouration, chances are the kids will look like him.
The lot debugger can be obtained here:
It does contain a feature to randomise the sim generator.
