Fun meter dosn't go up when listening to music or dancing with the new earbuds from the Fitness Stuff Pack. It continues to go down.

Re: Listening to Music and Dancing With Earbuds Not Fun

 Earbuds now raise a Sim's fun need while music is streaming directly into their ears.

Although not a bug, this has been taken into consideration and is now changed in Patch 1.44.77

Hi @Franstntn

 

moved this to the bug forum

 

I noticed that too. Not that it continues to go down but that it doesn't really go up.

 

Tagging @SimGuruNick to see if they should

Hi Crin played with a family yesterday with one of the sims having the music lover trait and the fun metre went up while using the headphones. Standard smile

The fun metre only went up with my sim who had the music lover trait while listening to headphones, all sims without this trait didn't have the fun metre go up while listening to music.

There is no fun gain but the "Great tunes" moodlet is added and increases.

Sorry for the late response here. Per Graham, on Twitter (https://twitter.com/SimGuruGraham/status/878368682237243392): There was a concern that earbuds would turn into a cheat for Fun since they multitask with everything, and how that would affect autonomy. We're going to take another look at earbuds and Fun gain due to player feedback.
