[FIXED] Sims donating on their own

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Are sims supposed to be able to make donations without being prompted by the player?  It's only happened twice, and it was the same sim both times. Very annoying because every time the sim has done it, she wiped out what little money the family has.

Sims will no longer autonomously donate money to charity.
  • But they still feel good about doing it.


This was addressed in Patch 1.32.1

I really don't know how it's supposed to be.

 

Is it something you started beginning after the patch ? Are you using mods ?

Just wanted to add that I've had this all along. I've always assumed it's intentional (and just unwanted by me!), but adding a "me too" here in case it's not.

I don't believe it's a bug, tbh but I'll tag @SimGuruNick

As far as I know, Sims should avoid doing anything autonomously that deducts household funds. So seems like a legit bug to me. We'll see what the designers think though, I've filed a report. Thank you much! Standard smile

@SimGuruNick @crinrict if that were true, sims wouldn't cook, make bar drinks and order at bar venues. All deduct money and sims do them all autonomously. I have never had one donate online, but they do donate to that wishing well if it's on the home or a vacation rental lot autonomously. (Mine always do the lowest donation)

 

I thought that was by design since they can spend money in other ways autonomously and, it is always the lowest.

 

I don't play sims w/ the good trait so, maybe that triggers it on computer too.
