I'm using they/them pronouns for two of my sims and I'm overall just seeing a lot of "they likes" and "thereself", overall just a lot of incorrect grammar.
One notable error I just got though is with the "Energetic Alignment" moodlet. "Hayden feels alive! Fulfilled! Life is going on around their and she's part of it!" So my sim is also misgendered.
Image file is apparently too large but that's word for word what the moodlet said.
Which pronouns are you using? they/them
Where are they not being applied? In certain moodlets initially - the ones I nabbed screenshots of were dizzy and sparkling clean surroundings. However, after opening up my web browser and going back to the game the pronouns had changed to the correct ones, albeit with a grammatical issue in dizzy.
Can you share a screenshot of what you're seeing? Yep - see below!
I was playing with a new save and made one of my sims a toddler. I decided the mom was gonna be one of those parents doing the gender-neutral raising thing I've seen happening a lot lately, and gave the toddler they/them pronouns. However, when my main sim went to potty train her toddler, and they had an accident, the moodlet used the wrong pronoun. Note: This was after saving and exiting then reloading the game, as I had to adjust some things and restart. This seems important, as I've seen others mention this happening right after reloading the save file.
The moodlet in question:
To make sure I was correct and that the sim was labelled properly in CAS, I hopped in to check. They were, in fact, set as they/them, shown here:
After this, I left CAS. I happened to look back and see the moodlet again. After exiting out of CAS, it seemed fixed. But unfortunately, we seem to have another issue, one that I kinda had a feeling would happen with they/them pronouns. However, this is a separate issue, so I'll make a separate reply as asked in the first message on the thread.
In addition to my other problem, I also noticed a grammatical error, one that I kinda saw coming with they/them pronouns. While they/them can be applied to one person, it's still a plural pronoun, meaning that the words surrounding it need to change from pronouns like he or she or it, which are all singular. However, there is no way of letting the game know that the pronoun is grammatically plural, leading to issues like this.
Grammatically, that should be "they are" instead of "they is." I believe that what's happening is that the game is just doing a find-and-replace for the pronouns selected, except that doesn't change the words around it. I believe the solution for this would be, in the pronouns menu, add an option to select "plural/singular" to determine if it should be "is" or "are" in a situation like this. For the three defaults, this would be set automatically, of course, but then for custom ones everyone could choose which one fits that set of pronouns best. Otherwise, we're gonna be stuck with an annoying "they is" situation for eternity.
