[Fixed] - Siblings don’t recognize each other

Also, my husband also has this issue on his account. He completed sibling rivalry months ago, however, so he isn’t blocked.


I wonder if all mature accounts that have bred many generations eventually get stuck in this state? If someone has a mature account that still correctly generates siblings can you share some details for comparison?


EDIT -- Hey, has anybody with this bug tried retiring and sending away all their sims and starting fresh with two completely fresh new sims? The only thing holding me back from trying it is that I adopted a sim from a friend a while ago that I've been keeping as a permanent retired fixture in my household... I'll be sad to send him away, especially if it doesn't result in siblings.

I have the same issue. All 6 siblings have romantic / flirty options. They even have option to have a baby with the same gender siblings. They don’t list as brothers / sisters (playable and non playable)

@SimGuruMaaike  I've always try for baby. These 2 are brothers yet, they don't recognize each other. (Strangely the same thing happened to his mother and her brother.)

Re: My 2 sims aren't siblings

@cutopia1111 do you wait until their children become young adults before retiring their parents or no. The first time i did but not the second time. The first kid was but his younger brother wasn't. Right know i have 2 families but I'm only using my test family.  I want my main family to have more than one kid but if thats not possible...

@whackywhippet234 I have not been paying a lot of attention to that. I have had situations where I have had parents and their grown children all as my active sims, but other times when the kids come of age after the parents are already retired.

Same here, keep having babies (doing it the right way before you ask me) frustrating for sure, that you cannot 'recreate' the issue or see that everyone is having this struggle.

I tried the following scenario:

1. I retired all 4 sims

2. I created two new sims, a man and a woman

3. I did a romantic relationship with them and married them

4. I made them have two kids consecutively with try for baby

5. I raised the two boys that resulted until they were larger children

6. I aged one up and made playable with the option in the family painting.

7. Then I aged the other up the same way

8. They were not siblings.


I noticed something else important about them!


When I created the two brand new sim parents, they were automatically populated with roommate relationships with all the retired sims hanging out in the house.


However, the now adult children were totally different. They had NO relationship information populated except for mom and dad.


Somehow they are bypassing receiving a large chunk of initial relationship information.

How often does the bug occur? Occasionally (10% - 49%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have a couple have two or more children, eventually make one playable and socialise with the known sibling(s) and see if they have a known relationship ( which should be brother/sister). On most cases there is also the option to be flirty with the sibling.
What do you expect to see? A known relationship between siblings.

I have the same problem. A couple had 2 babies, they (parents) do not live together. The mother had another baby with a second partner. The mother’s relationship status shows all 3 kids as daughters but all three kids show each other not as siblings but acquaintances. Of course, sibling rivalry never shows up as a relationship choice, since the siblings don’t recognize each other as such.

I am stuck in this quest.


Thank your for fixing this bug!
