I have an issue of neighborhood stories not allowing Sims to have babies on their own or adopt children. I haven't found anyone else saying that neighborhood stories wasn't doing something that it should, until I read your post.
Have you found a solution?
Yours is literally the only response I've gotten. I even posted asking over on reddit. No one else seems to have the issue, or have noticed it if they do.
I can't confirm this. In my game. I had someone from the stories say they died of electrocution and their ghost came to my lot since I have the Haunted Lot Challenge with electric bolts inside them. The devs might have made it so it doesn't happen often since they don't want so many sims to die. I can tell you in my game I had a Neighbourhood Stories death last night. So I can confirm it does work and why people are not talking about it since it must be working in their game.
I've just downloaded the base game on the PS4 and it's still the same, so it's definitely a bug. I played for 4 hours real time with nothing but death by accident on in neighbourhood stories and all it would tell me was that nothing of note had happened.
This might be because accidental deaths are triggered depending on population size. They have a much higher chance to occur when the population reaches the max limit. And depending on how many packs someone owns and on play style this might take a little longer. I often start playing with a totally wiped save and it always takes a while until the first deaths by accident occur.
@flauschtrud So you're saying that I should try to hit three or more gens? Do you know how long it takes? Because I've gone two gens with none recently.
