@wades_wiilson The problem is, that NAP from other neigborhood affect your own (which is a problem in itself) so I'm bascially just wondering if there's any NAP that could be made accountable (even if it's not active in your own neighborhood at the moment)

@crinrict I checked the other neighborhoods and nothing that this would fall into. The closest to a maybe was the performing arts initiative.

@crinrict Just as a quick update to this one, I went around all my neighbourhoods and removed any active NAP's and also switched both NPC Voting and Eco Footprint Gameplay off in the menu and it's still happening. No other mean or mischief interactions though, just the fake bad news one.
Interestingly doesn't come up as a normal interaction though. You've got the main Sim portrait bubble in the queue and usually it has a smaller bubble to the right with the queued interaction like Brighten Day or whatever, but this Give Fake Bad News doesn't show the smaller bubble. It's almost as if it's a standalone queued interaction rather than a social one as part of a conversation if that makes sense?

@Rebouks I checked your save and got a few questions for you

- Was it only one Sim giving the fake news or the others as well ?
- How did you remove the NAPs ? By revoke them or cheating ?
- Do they do it when not in a playful mood ?

This is indeed one of NAPs behaviors. This issue is the same as incessant cake-baking/stealing/flirting/clay-spawning one. Once the respective NAP was enacted elsewhere this affected my played households, removing NAP doesn't help. It doesn't require Playful mood either.

@jacknifelee Do you see it on NPCs or active Sims ? I think there might be multiple forces at play.
