Re: How to unlock the sibling rivalry story?

★★★★★ Novice

I don’t think so. All my sims all live in the same house and have never moved. Their parents are still playable too.

The siblings don't seem to recognize each other or anyone else than their parents and I can't seem to access the sibling rivalry option no matter what I've tried. I searched online and many people had the same but no actual solution was given. Can someone please help me with this?

I view this as most likely a form of data corruption. Once an account goes bad, it seems to stay bad (has ANYONE been able to get rid of the problem yet on their own?).

I tried to get the customer support to try deleting my sims' generational data so I could hopefully get a clean start with a new generation. They wouldn't do it though and just sent me some stuff about reinstalling which did not help.

I am waiting again to find a convenient time when I can retire all of my sims at once and start a brand new sim. If I can get customer service to cooperate and clear the generations data before I start the fresh sim then maybe the data corruption will be corrected. That's the hypothesis I want to try anyway.

I have the same problem. Couldn’t contact support and, as this post is not new, it seems it’s not EA priority to solve this.

Additional feedback:

‌Two of my married sims had seven babies. When I made three of them playable, none of their contacts were shown as siblings, only acquaintances. However, they do recognize their mother and father. At first I thought that all I had to do was introduce them to each other but apparently it didn't work out that way. I've tried both in a friendly and confrontational way, but nothing happened. The flirty option was also available, which is really absurd as they are brothers and sisters. This difficulty has occurred since the first time I played the sims mobile. I've never had any problems with this game before.

I have 3 siblings, 2 boys and a girl all grown up. One of them is retired and not payable, ai have both other playable. I had never interacted between them before and started the rivalry option, but the siblings rivalry story didn't show up as option, and all of my siblings don't recognize themselves as siblings, none of them is adopted, all have same mother and father.

I find this especially frustrating because I can’t do the Sibling Rivalry story (which, as far as I can tell, is the ONLY family story in existence). I mean, sure, it’s a little weird that they can do the romance stories, but it’s far more annoying that they CAN’T do a family story. I’d been looking forward to it ever since I first bought the dang bassinet, and I never would have imagined that after everything it simply wouldn’t be a functioning option just because... um, because why, exactly? It seems strange that one of the game’s features would be completely disabled for so long without the issue being addressed.

 

To be clear, I have three biological siblings who each have the same mother and father listed (and the parents were married long before any of them were born, for that matter). They all grew up together and are all playable characters now, but recognize each other as mere “acquaintances” rather than siblings. I tried starting a rivalry with two different pairings, but at the end of the initial hour-long hangout, the list of stories that popped up did not include “Sibling Rivalry.” I even tried going the “friendship” route in case it was listed there, but that didn’t work, either.
