[NEEDS SAVES] [DHD] Conflicting Client Likes/Dislikes

Re: Dream Home Decorator: Conflicting Client Likes/Dislikes

★★★★ Novice

I am pretty sure I have figured out the reason, as it is the same as the reason behind the age-inappropriate gig details I have provided a bug report for.

 

Basically, it seems each sim has their has their own likes and dislikes... But when questioned for a gig, they'll answer from the entire household's pool of interests. If the child is interested in red, singing and island decor and dislikes white, the teen is interested blue but hates red, and likes mission decor and rocket science, and the parent is interested in green, white, Queen Anne style and Gothic Farmhouse style and loves to cook, but hates island decor... You may step in as a decorator, and while questioning any (or all) of them, all they may give you is: likes and dislikes red, likes and dislikes island decor etc. 

 

The game also can not differentiate between appropriate themes and styles based on room type. Children's room renovations can spawn adult interest types and bathrooms can come up wuith gardening and rockets...

The big question then becomes how to reroll or otherwise influence those preferences. Reloading doesn't seem to work and - at least in my case - using the "suggest a different decor" doesn't do anything even with maxed charisma which i assume should influence their decision.

@Cognitivecog I had them change for both color and decor when I used those. Do you have a high reputation ? How was your relationship to them ? Do you remember if anyone had island decor on like before you changed it ?

@ydinasekauppias I think so too. They just all give you what the family likes which in a way makes sense to me. This way you don't have to run around the whole house to talk to everyone.
