@SimGuruNick There is no filter for male Sims in the tuning file.

 

Note:  If you want to make a mod to fix this issue, just add a filter for male Sims.

Re: [OPEN] [ECO] NPC Phone call event triggers male to become pregnant

Champion
@canelacaliente I looked at that a while ago and I don't think it's as simple as that. That tuning file just determines who is able to call your sim. Even if you restricted the phone call to only come from female sims, you'd still get situations like Tina Tinker calling you and then getting impregnated by her wife.

I think to fix it, the loot pregnancy action that triggers after the call needs to have checks added to handle multiple situations. Currently, it's just no checks – "whoever calls, make them pregnant".

But I think that there are existing tests I've seen in the other tuning files that can be used to make it check for things like the target's spouse's gender and ability to impregnate or be impregnated.

Re: [OPEN] NPC Phone call event triggers male to become pregnant

I have experienced this on PS4. It's kind of funny, especially since the Sim that got pregnant is a grouchy old man.

This just happened to me as well. I've got a pregnant Kado Akiyama in my game. If anyone still needs the save file let me know.

@BeckiAteUrPizzaX Was this an active or inactive Sim ?

It was in my active household.  Although one of my teens did get that phonecall from her dad (pregnant male) when she was out, so it seems likely this is the issue.  Thanks Standard smile

Male sims preggo with wife baby how!!

★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Occasionally (10% - 49%)
What is your current game version number? Current 1.58.63.1010
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All but star wars
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Not sure if you get we were thinking about trying for a baby and have your sims who gets the call say go for it
What happens when the bug occurs? Okay so my teen sim was snowboarding and he got a call from his dad who was at work called him with the message "we've been thinking about trying for a baby what do you think about it" and I had my teen sim who lives in the same household btw so sure go for it. dad is pregnant with his wife's baby.
What do you expect to see? The right sim with the correct gender setting being the one pregnant and maybe not sims in same household getting calls from each other just cause they were off the lot
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

Okay so my teen sim was snowboarding and he got a call from his dad who was at work called him with the message "we've been thinking about trying for a baby what do you think about it" and I had my teen sim who lives in the same household btw so sure go for it. A day later I find out that the dad is pregnant with his wife's baby. Their gender settings are normal the wife becomes pregnant and the husband gets pregnant. HE is the one having the wife's baby. They had two other kids both normally the wife gave birth to both before this. This is a really odd glitch. p.s I redownloaded mccheats to see who was the dad of the baby

So, it seems like any sim can call if they're married and at least young adult, according to the tuning file @canelacaliente posted, and the sim who calls is the one who gets pregnant.

Eleanor Elderberry called me and asked if they should get a baby, and I answered that they should get the baby only because I was curious what would happen. So, now Eleanor Elderberry, who's an elder, is pregnant in one of my save files.

Elderly women can normally not get pregnant in TS4.

Male Sims will no longer get Pregnant after receiving calls from NPC Sims.

Fixed in Patch 1.69.57/ 1.35
