[NEEDS INPUT] Whims: Same-sex Couple Wants to Try For Baby

[ Edited ]
★★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.58.63.1010
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Create a household with 2 female Sims in a married relationship
What happens when the bug occurs? They keep getting the whim to "try for baby with..." each other
What do you expect to see? I expect to not be given whims which are outside the scope of the game's capabilities.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. I am unsure if this is new, but I haven't encountered it before (though I haven't played many same-sex couples)

Screenshot attached of "try for baby with" whim issue. The couple is Nancy Landgraab, and a female Sim I created.

Re: Multiple Whim-Related Issues

Hero
@glimmerbeast Could you edit this post to just make it about the baby whim ? Need a thread per issue.

The other issue is a known one and has a thread here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-INPUT-Whims-not-fulfilling/td-p/8180364

Thanks.

Happy Gaming

Have you previously edited one of them to make others pregnant, or set that for your sim during CAS? I've noticed this Whim appearing after making that change for a same-sex couple in my game, even though I reverted it after they had their first child.

 

Note that same-sex pregnancies aren't outside the capabilities of the game, and this may just be an issue where the game forgets to check the compatibility between partners for pregnancy.

No, I hadn't edited either
