ACR Working A Bit Differently Than Before
« on: May 15, 2011, 08:53:05 PM »
Hi All-

I have a new neighborhood in which ACR is suddenly functioning differently. In my other neighborhood if I -remember correctly- when my sims Woohoo with ACR they cuddle,kiss, make-out and then woohoo, suddenly they are just jumping straight to the woohoo. As far as I know I haven't changed anything, nor do I have any hack conflicts. I've checked the FAQ and other documentation and it doesn't appear to address this. Its not a big thing but if there is some setting I need to adjust I'd like to know so I can do that. I have DBlDeluxe and all EP's and I've never had a problem with ACR.

Maybe your sims in this hood have different personality types or aspirations?  As far as I know, there is no setting you can adjust for this, but I have noticed some sims always seem to be in a hurry.... it may be that it's the Try for Baby that causes it?

It's completely random where in the sequence they start. Also, if sims are tired or close to having to leave for work etc they will skip the pleasantries as well.
Some people are like Slinkies. Not really good for anything but they bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.

And here I thought it was just the relationship....I'll do the dirty with you, but I don't know you well enough to kiss you.   :rolleyes:

They know it's nearly time for the pool car?   :omg: They're more intelligent than I thought... they can tell the time!

I've often found that if sims are excited enough (like when they've already been flirting/kissing for a while) they may also skip the pleasantries, especially with woohoo in bed.

Well, that makes sense, they've already covered the preliminaries.... and of course, while we can't see what's happening in the photobooth, it's pretty obvious by how quickly it's over, they haven't bothered with much of a *warm-up*.... )

I don't have any personal experience but I don't think the photo booth would be comfortable enough for a longer stay. :giggle:

Indeed! And add to that the fact that in most cultures one could easily be arrested for such public display... One wouldn't want to take any more risk than required. Of course that risk increases the excitement even more, so it'll probably not take long anyway ;)

In some cultures you'd get more than a slap on the wrist and a small fine.....

Hey guys thanks for the replies and the laughs. I was looking at some of the overrides and such in the ACR menus and saw that I could reset ACR to its default setting and my sims are now behaving as expected. I had set preferred dress setting to nekkid for this hood and I think that somehow might  to be the cause.

They probably thought they'd done the preliminaries.....
