@Hamsysincy What's the name of that moodlet ? Your screenshot just shows pictures of several.

If it's multiple moodlets, could you please specify them.

Hi @crinrict ,

Sorry for the confusion. It may not be called moodlet but rather relationship + or - indicated by green and red colored icon respectively.

 

As an example, after friendly social interaction, you will see + green relationship icon on 2 Sims' heads. If you choose mean interaction, there will be - red relationship icon on 2 Sims' head

 

In this case, negative (-) relationship red icon appears on both of the Sims' heads even though there is no social interaction between them. 

This is shown as in the snapshot.

 

This appears very randomly and occur once awhile.

 

Hope this explanation helps.

@Hamsysincy Ah, I remember that vaguely being an issue years back.

I'll tag as needs input to see if others see those again

 

Are they always negative ?

 

Also: Moodlets are the squares at the right bottom that influence the emotions. They are also called buffs

 

EDIT: Does it actually influence the relationship or is it just the icons showing ?

@crinrict Many thanks for the response.

 

I know a bug which causes random pink (love) relationships between unplayed Sims years ago but it was already been fixed.

 

To your inquiry "Are they always negative ?" - Yes, the random relationship icon always appear as negative. Technically, it should only appear if i choose a mean or mischief interaction with another Sim and it should not be a random event which occurs without any interaction.

 

Hope this helps to explain the situation.

@Hamsysincy Does it actually affect the relationship or is it just the icon ?

Hi @crinrict 

Yes it does. 

 

I happen to have 2 other Sims coming over visiting my Sim in the household. The random negative relationship icons appear between them and causes their relationships to turn red.

(Good relationship shows green meter and bad relationship shows red meter on the top middle on the screen)

I have the same - negative relationship is randomly occurring for friendly interactions including Ask About Day, Discuss Interests, Tell Joke, & it happened for Get to Know, which then triggered "Apologise" to show as an option in her conversation menu. Both as icons above the sims heads & in their relationship bar. 

Sometimes the interactions work as intended, sometimes they don't.

 

First noticed it with a child sim talking to a child she invited over after school - neither of them had conflicting traits like good/evil (my sim was creative & the visitor was a geek). The visiting child grew angry & their relationship bar moved into red, despite being their relationship being green (but not quite friends) when invited over.  This was post patch, pre EP.

 

Also, I'm getting relationship & reputation green/red icons for just clicking a nearby sim, not just when they're interacting - but i think that was happening pre-patch too.

@dragancaor finally someone else is having the same problem. It would be an annoying bug if you are particular on the relationship health between sims.
